Identity and Image of Indian Geography: The People's Perspective
Singh, Ravi S.
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v33 n3 p375-391 Sep 2009
Geography is among the late beginner subjects at higher education level in India. As revealed in scholarly writings, this discipline had been subjected to discrimination for colonial reasons and continues to lurch even today. There have been many academic writings on Indian geography. This paper is an attempt to look at the discipline from the people's side. Against the backdrop of a brief history of Indian geography and current debates therein, various issues are discussed as revealed by ordinary people during a questionnaire-based survey across different sections of society and also focused informal discussions. (Contains 5 tables and 3 figures.)
