Srila Prabhupada is featured in the "Saints of India" chapter by one Indian high school textbook published in the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) this year. This chapter describes different sages of India and begins with Srila Prabhupada. 


At this time we have no additional information that the government of India has initiated this textbook inclusion or if this textbook is being used across India. 

"There is the government entity which formulates the framework of what should be taught and what should not be taught (in India) and based on that framework, there may be different publishers who may be publishing their own textbooks. So from the photograph I've seen, that's what it looks like, that some publisher decided to include Srila Prabhupada in it", says Yudhistira Govindas das, ISKCON Communications Director of India.
