Not many know the Indian past he had discovered!

"What is it that keeps the country down", asked the speaker. A young man in the audience replied unhesitatingly: "Undoubtedly the institution of caste that kept the majority low castes and the society backward" and added "it continues".

The speaker replied, "May be". But, pausing for a moment, he added, "May not be". Shocked, the young man angrily asked him to explain his "may-not-be" theory.

The speaker calmly mentioned just one fact that clinched the debate. He said, "Before the British rule in India, over two-thirds - yes, two-thirds - of the Indian kings belonged to what is today known as the Other Backward Castes (OBCs).

"It is the British," he said, "who robbed the OBCs - the ruling class running all socio-economic institutions - of their power, wealth and status." So it was not the upper caste which usurped the OBCs of their due position in the society?

The speaker’s assertion that it was not so was founded on his study - unbelievably painstaking study for years and decades in the archives in India, England and Germany. He could not be maligned as a ‘saffron’ ideologue and what he said could not be dismissed thus. He was Dharampal, a Gandhian in ceaseless search of truth like his preceptor Gandhi himself was, but a Gandhian with a difference. He ran no ashram on state aid to do ‘Gandhigiri’.

Admitting that "he and those like him do not know much about our own society", the young man who questioned Dharampal - Banwari is his name - became his student. By meticulous research of the British sources over decades, Dharampal demolished the myth that India was backward educationally or economically when the British entered. Citing the Christian missionary William Adam’s report on indigenous education in Bengal and Bihar in 1835 and 1838, Dharampal established that at that time there were 100,000 schools in Bengal, one school for about 500 boys; that the indigenous medical system that included inoculation against small-pox.

He also proved by reference to other materials that Adam’s record was ‘no legend’. He relied on Sir Thomas Munroe’s report to the Governor at about the same time to prove similar statistics about schools in Madras. He also found that the education system in the Punjab during the Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s rule was equally extensive. He estimated that the literary rate in India before the British was higher than that in England.

Citing British public records he established, on the contrary, that ‘British had no tradition of education or scholarship or philosophy from 16th to early 18th century, despite Shakespeare, Bacon, Milton, Newton, etc’. Till then education and scholarship in the UK was limited to select elite. He cited Alexander Walker’s Note on Indian education to assert that it was the monitorial system of education borrowed from India that helped Britain to improve, in later years, school attendance which was just 40, 000, yes just that, in 1792. He then compared the educated people’s levels in India and England around 1800. The population of Madras Presidency then was 125 lakhs and that of England in 1811 was 95 lakhs. Dharampal found that during 1822-25 the number of those in ordinary schools in Madras Presidency was around 1.5 lakhs and this was after great decay under a century of British intervention.

As against this, the number attending schools in England was half - yes just half - of Madras Presidency’s, namely a mere 75,000. And here to with more than half of it attending only Sunday schools for 2-3 hours! Dharampal also established that in Britain ‘elementary system of education at people’s level remained unknown commodity’ till about 1800! Again he exploded the popularly held belief that most of those attending schools must have belonged to the upper castes particularly Brahmins and, again with reference to the British records, proved that the truth was the other way round.

During 1822-25 the share of the Brahmin students in the indigenous schools in Tamil-speaking areas accounted for 13 per cent in South Arcot to some 23 per cent in Madras while the backward castes accounted for 70 per cent in Salem and Tirunelveli and 84 per cent in South Arcot.

The situation was almost similar in Malayalam, Oriya and Kannada-speaking areas, with the backward castes dominating the schools in absolute numbers. Only in the Telugu-speaking areas the share of the Brahmins was higher and varied from 24 to 46 per cent. Dharampal’s work proved Mahatma Gandhi’s statement at Chatham House in London on October 20, 1931 that "India today is more illiterate than it was fifty or hundred years ago" completely right.
Not many know of Dharampal or of his work because they have still not heard of the Indian past he had discovered. After, long after, Dharampal had established that pre-British India was not backward a Harvard University Research in the year 2005 (India’s Deindustrialisation in the 18th and 19th Centuries by David Clingingsmith and Jeffrey G Williamson) among others affirmed that "while India produced about 25 percent of world industrial output in 1750, this figure had fallen to only 2 percent by 1900." The Harvard University Economic Research also established that the Industrial employment in India also declined from about 30 to 8.5 per cent between 1809-13 and 1900, thus turning the Indian society backward.

PS: This great warrior who established the truth - the truth that was least known - that India was not backward when the British came, but became backward only after they came, is no more. He passed away two weeks ago on October 26, 2006, at Sevagram at Warda.

Modernising the Indian infantry

Modernising the infantry


Ashok Mehta
Source: The Daily Pioneer

Why has it taken the Army so long to conceive an upgrade package for the oldest, most potent and intensely employed fighting arm, the Infantry, even after the so-called revolution in military affairs? The foot soldier, the original and most versatile weapon system that is always taken for granted, has emerged from the dubious shock and awe strategy of recent campaigns as its ultimate arbiter. India has paid dearly for the neglect of its infantry in terms of cost, casualties and over-stretch of battle. But the Infantry has never let us down. Kargil was its finest hour. Gen VP Malik, the Army Chief of the time, wryly noted: "We will fight with what we have."



So when for the first time an international conference of Army and defence industry was launched last week to put the forgotten soldier centre-stage, some misgivings were natural. While Army Chief Gen JJ Singh outlined his vision for the soldier system of the future, the conspicuous and total absence of Government - MoD - robbed the conference of any sanctity. In sharp contrast, for a MoD-sponsored defence finance seminar earlier in the month, Government officials and ministers were stepping over each other at Vigyan Bhavan.



Free India's Army came into being in 1947 and within weeks, the Infantry soldiers landed in Srinagar to save J&K from being gobbled up by Pakistani tribal raiders. Since then, the Infantry has not ceased fighting proxy wars there and later, elsewhere too. A former Army Chief, Gen SR Choudhury, who was not from the Infantry, described the Infantry as the Army and vice versa. Field Marshal Montgomery said: An army is considered only as good as its Infantry.



The experience of four wars, several border skirmishes, two out-of-area missions, the ceaseless campaign to counter cross-border terrorism in Kashmir, numerous other insurgencies in the North-East, internal stability operations elsewhere in the country and UN peace keeping operations make the Indian Infantry the most battle-hardened and combat rich force in the world. The simple and uncomplaining infantryman has given so much to so many for so little.



The modernisation of the infantry was first attempted - halfheartedly - in the mid-1980s by the Perspective Planning branch of the Army Headquarters. The bias for mechanised warfare, zealously pursued by Gen Sundarji, was so pronounced that the Infantry modernisation plan was skipped altogether. Guns, tanks, APCs were the weapons in demand. The Infantry was ignored. Had a modest upgrade package been undertaken at that time, infantry would have been more combat contemporary and effective.



Instead, till recently, some soldiers were still using World War II equipment and clothing. Shameful as it was, soldiers had to buy rucksacks and other accoutrements from the market. DRDO is still to come out with a light bulletproof vest. The Army failed to accurately visualize the nature of combat it would fight in the future. Pakistan-sponsored insurgency in Punjab did not alert the nation and the Army to the proxy war brewing in J&K. We defaulted on both counts - anticipating low intensity conflict and cross border terrorism and preparing the Infantry for it.



Despite the sustained counter-insurgency and counter-terrorism campaign in J&K and the North-East since the 1990s, the Army was sluggish in investing in the infantry. The first Gulf War reintroduced the fiction that wars could be won from the air. The air campaigns in Bosnia and Kosovo temporarily turned fiction into reality. But 9/11 broke the myth of supremacy of air power. Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan lasted 76 days; 65 of these were air operations.



The 11-day land offensive secured a temporary and incomplete victory against the Taliban. Operation Iraqi Freedom on the other hand, fought for 20 days was bereft of any preparatory air campaign though a secret air war preceded it. Unhappily for the US/NATO-led coalition forces, despite their pyrrhic military victories, low intensity wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are continuing in full blaze.



The recent 34-day war in Lebanon and the ongoing campaign in Gaza demonstrate the limits of Israel's military power. Used to decisive victories in less than 10 days, Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) were badgered by Hassan Nasrallah's jihadi militia. Reliance on air power, tanks and guns in Lebanon as substitute for ground troops - infantry - was motivated by casualty aversion. We too have to be sensitive to casualties.



The wars in Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan spurred by the growing cult of Osama bin Laden and Hassan Nasrallah require a redefinition of the concept of power and military success. Success would necessarily be an inclusive military victory encompassing post-conflict stability and reconstruction. For this we need Infantry.



The Indian Army should not get overly seduced by high-sounding warfare like 'netcentric' that the West is being diverted into. This is not to suggest we ignore the strides in high-tech warfare. But as a former US NATO Commander noted recently: "This netcentric stuff is great but our men in Baghdad are being blown up with their Humvees by IEDs." He suggested that we address the battle we are fighting before switching to the one we will fight in the future.



India's supreme operational challenge is and will be the maintenance of internal security. Just last month, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh stated this ground reality. The Infantry is at the heart of counterinsurgency and counter-terrorism operations and may well get sucked into anti-Naxal operations as well. Keeping the Army operationally ready for both conventional and unconventional missions is imperative but the emphasis has to be on the business of the day: CI and CT.



The Indian Infantry is belatedly embarking on a modernisation programme to enhance its combat skills through increased lethality, communications, surveillance, mobility and suvivability. These force multipliers will enable the soldier to fight all-weather, 24x7 and on any terrain in the right battle-configuration albeit with the accent on LIC.



The GSQR for the Future-Infantry-Soldier-As a System (F-INSAS) must empower not encumber the soldier. DRDO must compete with domestic and international industry. DRDO has one more chance to make amends for its omissions and commissions. F-INSAS must strike the right balance between the surge of technology and sensibility of the soldier keeping the battle of the future in mind. Defence Minister AK Antony should accord F-INSAS the highest strategic priority.

Behind Patils sea terror alarm bell : 51 sensitive spy rings busted in two years

Behind Patils sea terror alarm bell: 51 sensitive spy rings busted in two years
Pranab Dhal Samanta

Team led by Maharashtra DGP reported at conference this week on threat to critical installations, including atomic energy, space; national coastal police station network to be expanded

NEW DELHI, NOVEMBER 25:When Home Minister Shivraj Patil rang the alarm bell this week over threats to critical installations and nuclear power stations, he had one reason: as many as 51 spy rings involved in gathering information and details on such installations have been busted in the past two years.



Its reliably learnt that this information was disclosed at this weeks conference of DGPs from all states. Patil, while inaugurating the conference, underlined the threat posed by Pakistan-based groups to such critical installations, especially along the coast.

A committee, led by Director General of Maharashtra Police P S Pasricha, had recently gone into these threats and its report was discussed at the conference. The committee pointed out that threat levels against nuclear installations have increased after the proposed Indo-US nuclear deal.

In 2005, it was revealed that 18 espionage modules were busted and 30 agents were arrested, of which 19 were Indians. This year, until mid-September, 17 modules had been detected.

Sources say the main aim of these modules was to provide information that could facilitate attacks on the hinterland.

The critical installations and systems broadly mapped by this committee are atomic energy and space installations, petro-chemical complexes, including those run by the private sector, Defence installations like Ordnance depots, communication networks and systems, the I-T sector, airports and sea ports as well as mass transit systems.
Specific mention was made of the petro-chemical infrastructure located along the western coast and that this is under threat from terror groups and crime mafia which can use the high seas to carry out an attack.

In this connection, the government is now looking to give a push to its plan for setting up coastal police stations at the cost of over Rs 15 lakh per station. An amount of Rs 151 crore has been earmarked for this but only 12 have come up so far. Six of these are in Andhra Pradesh and two in West Bengal.
Besides this, an Indian Infrastructure Protection Centre has been set up under the National Technical Research Organisation, the hub for technical intelligence gathering.

Based on intelligence reports and assessments, this centre will come out with specific list of critical installations under threat. Much of the focus of this centre is on the I-T sector, said sources.

Hindu Americans Protest Call to Convert to Christianity By Republican Candidate in Minnesota

Hindu Americans Protest Call to Convert to Christianity By Republican Candidate in Minnesota


MINNEAPOLIS, MN (November 21, 2006) – Hindu Americans, still reeling from an election season that saw high profile Republican Party candidates scorn adherents of minority faiths in the United States, were treated to another attack on pluralism from a state senate candidate in Minnesota. Republican Rae Hart Anderson, who was defeated by a margin of nearly 40% in her bid to unseat Sen. Satveer Chaudhary of District 50, wrote a rambling concession email over a week after the election in which she called on the senator to convert to her Christian faith as she said he needed to be “forgiven.” Sen. Chaudhary is a practicing Hindu.

The Hindu American Foundation (HAF), which has a full-time staffed office in Washington, D.C. to promote human rights and religious liberty issues in government, contacted the Minnesota Republican Party office Monday. The foundation demanded that the GOP in Minnesota repudiate Anderson’s correspondence as she was the GOP’s chosen candidate to represent the northern suburbs of Minneapolis-St. Paul. At the time of this press release, no response had been received from the GOP office.

“The race of your life is more important than this one--and it is my sincere wish that you'll get to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior,” wrote Anderson in her email. “Jesus is the way, the truth and offers His life to you and each human being. Pay attention...this is very important, Satveer. Have you noticed Jesus for yourself...at some moment in time, yet???”

Anderson continued on the same message for another five paragraphs beseeching Sen. Chaudhary to convert without discussing the electoral race they had just completed. Local print and broadcast media picked up the story of the conversion call and the email was roundly derided in the blogosphere. In response to an inquiry from the Star Tribune newspaper in Minneapolis, Anderson’s campaign manager said, “Chaudhary is not Christian. He needs to find his soul.”

“Hindu Americans are active participants in the political process, and over a dozen Hindus were candidates in national and regional races throughout the country this year,” said Suhag Shukla, Esq., legal counsel of HAF and a resident of St. Paul. “Anderson obviously hid her overt bigotry until after the election, and Hindus can only wonder how they would have fared had the election results been different and their senator considered their faith inferior at best, and outright evil, at worst.”

HAF had already condemned similar ultraconservative and exclusivist remarks made by other candidates this year. Congresswoman Katherine Harris (R-FL) stated in late August that "If you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin," and Republican Governor Rick Perry of Texas publicly agreed with a pastor onstage after he asserted that non-Christians are going “straight to hell with a non-stop ticket.”

“Republicans have been among the strongest voices backing HAF on Capitol Hill on their issues, and many Hindu Americans are loyal supporters of the GOP,” said Ishani Chowdhury, the Executive Director of HAF who is not related to Sen. Chaudhary. “But at HAF, we are distressed by the intolerance and disrespect for Hinduism and other minority faiths displayed by a few prominent Republican candidates this year in pandering to the right wing Christian conservative vote—a clear and present danger to the pluralistic ethos our founding fathers valued so much.”

Anderson’s insinuations of her religion’s superiority took on new meaning in light of events earlier this year in the Minneapolis suburbs. The main Hindu temple, situated on nearly 30 acres, was heavily vandalized in the spring by a group of rampaging youths. HAF members expressed concern that when politicians demean and dismiss their faith and heritage without reaching out to understand its precepts, Hindus and their institutions become easy targets when the prevailing mood is of intolerance.

The Hindu American Foundation is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, non-partisan organization promoting the Hindu and American ideals of understanding, tolerance and pluralism. Contact HAF at 1-877-281-2838 or on the web at www.hinduamericanfoundation.org.

Nemesis faces the United States

M V Kamath

Do we require a British newspaper to tell us that nemesis is at last over taking the United States in Iraq? According to The Guardian, the United States is 'finally waking up to failure in Iraq'.

Washington should have known a long time ago that military power does not bestow political legitimacy anywhere in the world and no country with any self-respect will let itself be brow-beaten. But the White Man's mind-set with roots deep in the late nineteenth and later the second half of the twentieth century had to learn to change only after paying a heavy price.

The French learnt that they could not hold on to its colonies in South Asia, only after the bitter battle of Dien Bien Phu. The French had to pay heavily in flesh and blood to finally call it a day for its colonial rule. They thought that the North Africans were different and held on to Algeria for a long time without any success. The Algerians fought with all their resources - meagre though they were - at their command until de Gaulle saw wisdom and decided that withdrawal was the better part of valour.

The Americans in their arrogance thought that the world was theirs as they had the dollars and the spunk. They tried their hand in Korea only to be repulsed and all that they could succeed in was to see a United Korea divided. Then came Vietnam and the House of Cards theory promoted by the then US Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles. It was Dulles' view that held that if Vietnam goes the communist way, it would not be too long before the neighbouring nations, one after another, would start collapsing to the power of communism till all Asia would turn communist and place the US in a terrible quandary. Se the innocent Vietnamese were Literally battered to death. But to no avail.

The Vietnamese bravely stood up to the tremendous might of Washington, a mouse fighting a lion, but it was the mouse that had the last word. One would have imagined that the Americans had at last learnt their lesson. They haven't yet. Now they are being told by one of their own, that the wisest course to take is to withdraw quietly from Iraq, leaving the country, no doubt, in total disorder - and for no fault of their own.

The British already are about to quit. Tony Blair has been told by no less a figure than the Commander-in-Chief of his own British Forces that too many British lives are being needlessly sacrificed with no foreseeable benefit. Blair himself is set to leave office. And now, it seems, it is the turn of the Americans to run away ignominiously. Comes the news that a Committee set up by the US Congress with the endorsement of President Bush himself, under the direction of a former Republican Secretary of State, James Baker, has suggested an 'exit strategy' to Washington to leave Iraq without any preconditions, considering that there is no alternative for the US but just to 'cut and run' - in other words, to accept defeat as graciously as possible, leaving Iraq to its fate, as Afghanistan was once left, with terrible consequences.

It will be left to Syria and Iran to exploit the situation in Iraq as best as they can, And one can trust then both to do jest that. No one really knows the full extent of the damage done to Iraq by the combined forces of the United States and Britain, two of the largest criminal nations of the world. The original purpose - bogus, as it is now getting to be increasingly apparent - was to prevent Iraq from amassing weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). Iraq had no such weapons and such as they might once have possessed had been given to them by the United States itself to fight Iran. Washington would not face up to truth because it really had other factors in mind such as control over Iraq's oil wealth.

The US thought that displacing Saddam Hussain was an easy task considering how divided Iraq was, with the western provinces under the Mujahideem Shura's Sunni Muslims deciding to be a separate State with the kurds being already autonomous. In the south the Iranians were maintaining a careful watch, with the British willing to assist the Iranians to have de facto control over an 8-province confederacy. All of this presumes, of course, that Saddam Hussain will be hanged, which seems unlikely.

A living Hussain is unlikely to let his country go to pieces. Even as matters stand, Iraq is in a total mess. According to The Guardian it is near impossible to measure the scale of Iraq's collapse under three years of British and American occupation. As the paper put it: 'Whether the figure of civilian deaths is 50,000 or ten times that number is immaterial. Either is a horrific comment on the impotence of the Occupation'. And, one might add, the sheer arrogance and blood-thirstiness of America.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that there have been as many as 365,000 internal refugees within Iraq in this one year alone. More are seeking refuge abroad than from any other country. A third of Iraq's professional class is reported to have fled to Jordan, no doubt putting tremendous pressure on the economy of the tiny kingdom. The Guardian quotes UN monitors as saying that approximately 2,000 people a day are crossing the Syrian border.

What is even more frightening is the report that over a hundred lecturers at Baghdad University alone have been murdered - yes, murdered - mostly for teaching women! Islam is sliding into the Middle Ages and it is said that 'there are few places in Iraq where women can go about unattended or unveiled'. The US is literally getting away with murder. And Iraq is facing the possibility of partition, a three-way partition resulting in Sunni, Shia and Kurdish states with the very unlikelyhood of a confederation being formed. No doubt Iraq will some day arise from the ashes, but if Afghanistan is any indication, it may take decades if not centuries to achieve unity.

By contrast, Saddam Hussain seems like an angel in comparison to the devils in London and Washington. After Saddam Hussain, it may be Musharraf's turn. With waziristan gone and Baluchistan going, it should surprise nobody if Pakistan gets further divided with nothing left but an angry Sind and a subdued Punjab. Watch out, Delhi. It is time for Bharat to be awake, Pakistan's demise cannot be too long in coming. That is the price that Pakistan has to face for being Washington's poodle dog. Musharraf has two options: Make up with India or face Pakistan's collapse. Threatening the West with letting loose al Qaeda and the Taliban on it is blackmail. And Musharraf may soon find that he has to pay a price for it.

Did Sonia Gandhi signed the register as Non-Hindu at Tirupathi ?

Much publicised Sonia Gandhis visit to Tirupathi has topped national headlines . However VHP leader from Maharastra M.Ashok Chowgule told IntelliBriefs that "There is a tradition at Tirupati that when a non-Hindu enters the temple he/she has to sign a register in which he/she proclaims that he/she respects the Hindu religion "

Refering her earlier visit in 1999 he daid "At the time of the arrangement of the 1999 visit, it was agreed by her minders that Soniaji would sign the register prior to her entry. However, she simply went past the register and entered the temple - such is the disrespect she had shown then. "

He said it would be interesting to know if Ms.Sonia Gandhi signed the register this time.

Modi criticises UPA govt's "anti-Gujarat" policies

RAJKOT, NOV 26 (PTI)

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today came down heavily on the Congress-led UPA government for adopting "anti-Gujarat" policies and said the State could have done much better if the Centre had adopted positive attitude towards it.

"Gujarat has suffered huge lose duo to the UPA government's policies. The state has been developing well during the BJP-led NDA regime," Modi said while addressing a public meeting at Jetpur town, about 70 km from here.

"Gujarat could have done much better if the UPA government had adopted positive attitude towards the state," he added.

"The BJP government in the state intends to improve basic facilities like roads, water for drinking and crop and electricity, but the efforts are halted due to the UPA government's non-cooperative attitude," he alleged.

He alleged that the state has not received crores of rupees allocated by the Centre as grants and funds.

The chief minister further alleged that the "minority-oriented" Centre was not concerned about the country's overall development.

Modi was in Jetpur to unveil a statue of late BJP minister Savji Korat on his 8th death anniversary.

Kalam seeks answers for Indian workers abroad

Sunday November 26 2006 00:00 IST

PTI

NEW DELHI: President A P J Abdul Kalam on Friday evening set the problems of Indians working abroad before a gathering of law experts from around the world.

Inaugurating an international seminar on 'criminal justice system under stress: transnational perspective,' Kalam urged participants to help find ways to deal with crimes against Indians working overseas.

The conference to commemorate an Indian law institute completing 50 years is being attended by experts from India and abroad, including Chief Justices, judges and lawyers and law scholars.

A highlight of the event presided over by Chief Justice Y K Sabharwal was Kalam administering an oath of “righteousness” and “honest life” to young law students, which drew an all round applause.

Among those present were the Chief justices of England and Wales, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Singapore and Canada.

Those who spoke on the occasion included Law and Justice Minister Hans Raj Bhardwaj, senior most supreme court judge K G Balakrishnan and Attorney General Milon K Banerjee.

President Kalam said he has got “E-mails and messages from our citizens who have gone to various countries for employment, business and trade.”

He said a nexus between agents and prospective employers is putting “innocent citizens” to “legal and Financial harassment without being heard in any court of Justice.”

The problems include variance in promised and actual jobs, variance in payment and the assignment of “highly manual, unsafe, degrading” type of work “and implication in false fabricated cases in the foreign land,” he said.

He urged experts “to discuss the methodology and suggest suitable regulatory control and monitoring mechanism which will enable safeguarding the interests of Indian citizens working in different parts of the world.”
