Nivedita Menon on “The Nation is a Daily Plebiscite”


Note from Nivedita Menon:

When I listened to the video I realized two errors have crept in because of the fact that unlike a written text in which one can correct errors before publication, spoken lectures can be corrected only after they are listened to.

The two errors that I spotted are

a) Muktabai’s letter to Dyanoday was in 1855 of course, not 1955.

b) the Indian state bombed the civilian population of Aizawl in Mizoram, not Nagaland. This was in 1966 and of course, Mizoram has a similar troubled history with the Indian nation-state as Nagaland and Manipur.
