A new generation of historians are bringing the subject out of the shadow of Marx and Nehru, fulfilling its role of restoring civilisational pride among Indians.
The BJP, with its insistence on the purity of Hindu Rashtra, would sadly reduce the soaring generosity of their founding vision to the petty bigotry of majoritarian chauvinism.
Historiography under previous governments can, and should, be contested. But history that’s being rewritten under the present government is not merely to eulogise some leaders, but also, and more worryingly, to condemn several chapters of the past.
Mumbai Indians eliminated Delhi Capitals from IPL 2022 playoff race with a 5-wicket win at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday. A loss for Delhi Capitals meant they got restricted to 14 points and Royal Challengers Bangalore, who have 16 points, qualified as the fourth team in the playoffs. Talking about the match, Rovman Powell's 43 off 34 helped DC post 159/7 after MI skipper Rohit Sharma invited them to bat first on a sluggish track. Jasprit Bumrah returned figures of 3/25. In return, Mumbai Indians got off to a slow start and the match was slipping out of their hands despite a 48 off 35 from Ishan Kishan. The five-time champions were 95/3 in 14.3 overs when Tim David and Tilak Varma stitched 50 runs in just 21 balls for the fourth wicket to turn the game on its head. David was the major contributor with his 34 off 11. Ramandeep Singh's late cameo of 13 not out off 6 also helped Mumbai's cause as the side won the game with five wickets in hand and as many balls to spare. Get MI vs DC highlights here.

“Nothing special, just tried to have fun, and enjoyed my game. Very happy with how the last game went… Whenever you are new to the game, you need to learn a lot. I try to help the youngsters as much as I can… Improving your game is a yearly process, it doesn't stop. We need to analyse next year and come back strong. I was very happy with my rhythm after coming back from Sri Lanka, was happy with the execution. After the ball is released from my hand, I can't do much. I just try to keep things simple, and execute as much as I can.”
Mumbai Indians have won the game by 5 wickets and more than them it would be Royal Challengers Bangalore and their fans who would be happy with the win. A loss for Delhi Capitals means they get restricted to 14 points, two less than that of RCB, in IPL 2022 table.
Anrich Nortje gets the wicket of Tilak Varma, but is it too late for Delhi Capitals. It was bowled outside off stump and Tilak Varma edged it to Rishabh Pant. MI need 5 in 7 balls.
MI 155/5 (18.5)
Here is the end of Tim David's sensational knock of 34 that came in only 11 balls. Shardul Thakur gets his wicket but only after David hit two SIXES in the over. MI need 15 in 13.
MI 145/4 (17.5)
17 runs came off Khaleel Ahmed's third over. He had conceded only two off his first two overs and now concedes a lot many. MI need 29 in 18 balls and it seems gettable now as the ball is coming nicely to the bat, maybe because of some dew.
MI 131/3 (17)
The match is tilted in favour of Delhi Capitals but Mumbai Indians still have a chance here. Both Tilak Varma and Tim David are looking really good. Can they pull off this heist for the five-time champions. Let's see...
MI 114/3 (16)
Dewald Brevis is out! The golden arm of Lord Shardul once again comes to the rescue of Delhi Capitals. Brevis chopped the fuller ball on the stumps. He departs on 37 off 33. MI need 65 in 33.
MI 95/3 (14.3)
Only four runs came off Kuldeep Yadav's fourth over. He ends his quota with figures of 1/33. MI need 68 in 36. Dewald Brevis remains their biggest hope for now.
MI 92/2 (14)
Dewald Brevis was dropped in the previous over by Rishabh Pant and the South African batsman added salt to the injury by hitting a SIX in the next over to Axar Patel.
MI 88/2 (13)
Here comes another twist in the tale! Ishan Kishan misses his fifty. He gets out on 48 off 35. Kuldeep Yadav gave the ball good flight and that saw Kishan mistiming it high in the air before David Warner took a really good catch.
MI 76/2 (11.3)
Another good over for Mumbai Indians. They have gained momentum and should carry it now. DC failed to take wickets after the fall of Rohit Sharma and that is hurting them now. MI need 86 in 54.
MI 74/1 (11)
This is what Mumbai Indians needed. A big over to turn the tide in their favour. 18 runs came off Kuldeep Yadav's second over as Dewald Brevis hit him for a SIX and a FOUR before Ishan Kishan could cap it off with another SIX. The game is on! MI need 98 in 60.
MI 62/1 (10)
Runs are not coming for Mumbai Indians easily. This means an increase in required run rate which has went to 10.55 per over. Undoubtedly, the pitch is tough to bat on, but good bowling from DC bowlers is making it further tough for Mumbai Indians.
MI 44/1 (9)
Dewald Brevis tried to take on Kuldeep Yadav and somehow managed to hit the ball over the ropes. It looked like a mistimed shot as Shardul Thakur got interested at deep mid-wicket, putting a good jump, but the ball hit his hand and went out of the boundary ropes for a SIX.
MI 40/1 (8)
A boundary comes for Mumbai Indians after 20 balls. Ishan Kishan hits it through extra cover on the ball of Mitchell Marsh. Despite that only six runs came off the over.
MI 33/1 (7)
This ball is not coming nicely to the bat. Mumbai Indians' scoring rate is 4.5 runs per over and they need 9.5 per over from here. Dew should remain their biggest hope from this point.
MI 27/1 (6)
Rohit Sharma is out! That's the end of his struggle. Anrich Nortje has got the wicket. It was full on the stumps and Rohit chipped it to mid-on fielder Shardul Thakur.
MI 25/1 (5.2)
Rohit Sharma gets his first run on the 10th ball. He is not looking in his usual form tonight, something which has been an issue with him this IPL season.
MI 24/0 (4)
Only one run came off Khaleel Ahmed's second over. He has been sensational today but unlucky enough to not get a wicket so far.
MI 16/0 (3)
14 runs came off the over as Ishan Kishan hit Anrich Nortje for two FOURS and a SIX in it. The southpaw is looking really good tonight. Mumbai Indians must be happy with it, Royal Challengers Bangalore too, of course!
MI 15/0 (2)
Ishan Kishan takes the strike, Rohit Sharma is at the other end. Khaleel Ahmed will bowl the first over. Here we go!
Wow! Khaleel got some good swing in the first over and he used it beautifully to his advantage. Only one run came off the over. MI 1/0 (1)
Delhi Capitals have got a really good total on the board. The pitch has a lot of help for bowlers, especially the spinners. The fact that Mumbai Indians' batting has looked weak this season will boost DC's confidence. They need to save this target to earn a playoff entry or it's over for them. Second innings starts in a while...
19.3 - Ramandeep Singh gets his second wicket of the game. Shardul Thakur hit the ball high in the air before Tim David at long-on took a really good catch near boundary ropes.
11 runs came off the over and a wicket. DC 159/7 (20)
18.2 - Cometh the hour, cometh the man! Jasprit Bumrah bowled Rovman Powell with a beautiful yorker. He tried to create some room for himself but the ball was too good to be survived against. Powell departs on 43 off 34.
Only six runs came off the over and a wicket. DC 148/6 (19)
Axar Patel hit a SIX to Daniel Sams straight down the ground. He is 9 not off 5 and is looking in good touch. Meanwhile, Rovman Powell is nearing his fifty.
DC 142/5 (18)
Only two runs came off the first five balls of Jasprit Bumrah's third over before he attempted a bouncer to Rovman Powell. It eventually turned out to be a short ball and Powell pulled it beautifully on the rise for a SIX. He is 42 not out off 30.
DC 133/5 (17)
Ramandeep Singh conceded 19 runs off the first five legal deliveries before getting the wicket of Rishabh Pant on the final ball. It was bowled outside wide line and Pant followed the ball to get an edge. Ishan Kishan comfortably collected the ball behind the stumps. Pant falls on 39 off 33.
DC 125/5 (16)
Last two overs have been bowled by fast bowlers and only nine runs have come off it. Mumbai Indians would be happy with that. It also means that a big over or at least a wicket is around the corner. Let's see what unfolds from here. Last 5 overs coming...
DC 106/4 (15)
It's another good over for Delhi Capitals. Rovman Powell has beautifully shifted the momentum in favour of DC. He has his eyes set now and he needs to stay there. And if it happens, DC will have a good total to defend. Not to forget, Rishabh Pant is also there at the other end.
DC 97/4 (13)
11.2 - SIX! In the slot from Hrithik Shokeen and Rovman Powell hit it into the stands over deep mid-wicket. It was a tossed up delivery and Powell hit it for a long distance.
11.4 - Another SIX! Powell dances down the track this time but the result is same. He hits it again in the stands over deep mid-wicket.
20 runs came off the over. DC 84/4 (12)
Only 16 runs have come off the last three overs. Both Hrithik Shokeen and Mayank Markande have bowled very well tonight so far.
DC 64/4 (11)
8.4 - Things get worse for Delhi Capitals. Sarfaraz Khan has been dismissed by Mayank Markande. It was a typical leg spin delivery that got some good turn and bounce off the surface. Sarfaraz edged it to wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan.
Only four runs came off the over and a wicket.
DC 52/4 (9)
Rishabh Pant and Sarfaraz Khan have a lot of responsibilities on their shoulders. They not only have to stay at the crease for longer period, but also need to score quick runs for DC. The scoring rate of the side is only six runs per over, they need to do much better than this.
DC 48/3 (8)
Prithvi Shaw is out! This is sensational bowling from Jasprit Bumrah. He bowled a quick bouncer on the body of Shaw, who failed to get off the line and eventually hit the ball from the handle of his bat. Ishan Kishan took a good catch running and diving forward behind the stumps.
DC 31/3 (5.4)
Both Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant are taking their time. While Shaw is trying to play with lesser risk to score runs, Pant is new at the crease and has held his bat so far.
DC 29/2 (5)
Jasprit Bumrah has dismissed Mitchell Marsh for a first-ball duck. He bowled a good length delivery outside off stump and Marsh edged it to slip. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma took a beautiful catch at first slip.
DC 22/2 (3.2)
Daniel Sams has got the wicket of David Warner. This is brilliant bowling from him. He first choked the DC batters for room and eventually got the wicket of Warner as reward. It was a short of a length ball bowled close to off stump and Warner hit it exactly into the hands of short third man.
DC 21/1 (3)
Prithvi Shaw is on the strike, David Warner is at the other end. Daniel Sams has the new ball in hand. Here we go!
A FOUR and a couple came off the first over. DC 6/0 (1)
Arjun Tendulkar's wait to play his maiden IPL game continues as he fails to find a berth in the playing XI today as well.
