2. Historiography : Indian Tradition
Explain the following with its reason.

(1) Writing of the regional history received a momentum.

Answer: 
i. The writings of Indian historians who were trained in the British educational system show an inclination to restore the pride in the ancient glory of India and the self- esteem of the Indian readers.

ii. The nationalistic historiography helped in the triggering of the independence movement of the Indian people against the British.

iii. In this aspect the book, ‘The Indian War of Independence, 1857’, written by Vinayak Damodar Savarkar is of great importance.

iv. Also Vishnushastri Chiplunkar, who criticised the prejudiced history of ancient India written by British Officers, inspired the nationalistic writings in Maharashtra. 

v. Thus, nationalistic historiography provided a momentum to the writing of regional histories, which drew the attention of historians to the geographic conditions and history of south Indian regions.
