I know a number of my subs and viewers are in India and I've noticed on Twitter and on Abhijit Chavda's channel that there's quite a bit of controversy about the way Indian History is taught to Indian students.

I've seen/heard several articles about Narendra Modi and the BJP rewriting history in India over the past several years.
