The adviser said, “The textbook committee will go into the
changes that need to be brought in certain books. Maybe we
would like to change or add on certain chapters or certain
topics in certain subjects be it geography, be it science and so
“Therefore, we would like this textbook committee to go into
this depth to see that the textbook of our children should have
local contents. Our children of the state should know the
history of Meghalaya, should know geography of Meghalaya
and many things about Meghalaya as the (present) books are
just brought from outside and they have lots of other contents
but not much about Meghalaya. Therefore, we need to bring
certain changes in certain books at the school level.” (NNN)
