Governor RN Ravi has directed the universities to identify the forgotten freedom fighters in the history of Tamil Nadu. In this regard, a press release issued by the Tamil Nadu Governor’s House said that the Governor R.N. Ravi has ordered.
In a letter written by Governor Ravi to the Vice Chancellors of the University regarding this, we celebrate the biggest celebration of the country’s independence with joy. It has been 75 years since our country became independent. The proud history of our freedom struggle tells the culture and achievements of India. Apart from the leading players in the long freedom struggle, the history of many players and women went unrecognized. He said that we have a duty to honor them and document their lives.
Also, innumerable freedom fighters in our Tamil Nadu have made practical sacrifices to drive the foreigners out of this land. In this, the sacrifices and contributions of many people have been forgotten without being recognized in the public space. A nation cannot fail to recognize the sacrifice of the martyrs who worked for it.
It is our duty to document the information about them so that future generations will know about their sacrifices and struggles for the country. In this regard, the Governor has mentioned in the letter that he wants you to appoint at least 5 special research students to identify and document the lives and contributions of unknown freedom fighters from the areas covered by your university.
Appropriate Research Students should identify and research at least one unknown freedom fighter. A fellowship will be awarded for this research project. A one-year time frame may be given to complete the programme, at the end of which the research students will be felicitated in a ceremony held at Raj Bhavan. It will be our tribute to those hidden heroes of history and pride to the research students. In the letter, the Governor has also requested to brief him periodically on the progress and status of these research projects.
