Protests by Indians averted an attempt by certain Left-leaning academicians and scholars to dissolve India’s unique identity under a larger South Asian one in US school text books. The California Department of Education’s Instructional Quality Commission (IQC) rejected the academics’ suggestions at a public hearing of the matter on March 24.
