Tipu Sultan was the fearless “Tiger of Mysore”, a powerful bulwark against colonialism, and a great son of Karnataka. Comment on how should the historical figure of Tipu Sultan be assessed today. 10 marks

Mentor’s comment-

  • Begin with brief write up on Tipu Sultan and the current controversy of adding topics about Tipu in academic syllabus.
  • In the body explain in detail the contributions of Tipu Sultan in various fields during his short reign of 17 years. Provide the significance of the same during the times. Further you can discuss as to how the historical figures must be not be viewed through multilayered personality through the prism of morality or religion.
  • Conclude with how it is not necessary that historical figures be judged only in terms of either a hero or a tyrant.
