  • Abstract

A good society is the place where different cultures co exist peacefully in spite of its uniqueness and differences. Such a society stands upright on its pillars of liberty, equality, equity and social justice; these pillars are strengthened by education, which in turn is influenced by culture. Education through its curriculum reveals societal needs, aspirations, challenges and opportunities. As the needs and aspirations changes from person to person, community to community, region to region and state to state; curriculum too should be responsive enough to include these differences and address the social issues. History curriculum tries to give an unbiased record of the past follies and the glories of the society which further helps in directing its present and shaping its future by enabling one to imbibe the good things and avoid the mistakes of the past to live a harmonious life. The inclusion of different social groups helps them in getting a feeling of belonging in the society. Researcher tries to analyse the representation of such social groups through History syllabus of different boards from 6th std to 9th std.
