Inherent socialist bias of NCERT economics textbooks in Bharat

While the anti-Hindu bias in our history and social science textbooks are well known by now, a twitter thread by @AinzOoalGown423 would come as an eye-opener for most. It reveals the inherent socialist bias of NCERT economics textbooks in Bharat.

The same is reproduced below with minor changes to conform to HinduPost styleguide:


Was recently scrolling through my cousin’s class 10 economics book and am truly astonished how such a socialist bias has been allowed without any opposition.

The portrayal of the luxurious middle class in this book is very sad to see. These people contribute a lot to the Bharatiya economy, yet all of them are stereotyped as people who are antagonistic to the poor. Look at this photo, from Chapter 1 of Class 10 NCERT book:

Another instance of inherent socialism is the sad way in which the rich people have been portrayed. Pictures speak more than words, so you can very well comprehend how anti-rich and pro-egalitarian this picture is. Taken from Chapter 1, Class 10 Economics NCERT book:

Yet another instance of hidden socialism is the way in which industrialists have been subtly vilified. They are the ones who are the backbone of the Bharatiya Manufacturing sector, yet they are stereotyped as egoistic selfish men who only seek profit.

Another instance of the above stereotyping, taken from Chapter 4 of Class 10 economics NCERT textbook:

Another subtle socialistic influence is the heavy focus on the ill-effects of the 1991 liberalization effort. 2 whole pages to discuss the side-effects and fallacies of liberalization. Yet to read one dedicated paragraph which praises the move.

YET ANOTHER socialist influence is the vilification of modernization that has taken place post-1991. Instead of mentioning that Bharat has the second-largest railway network system courtesy liberalization, it will focus more on how villagers still ride on carts:
