should have spoken then itself and made it public "But to speak about such things after a time period or after retirement has become a fashion in our country It is a new trend to write a book after

signed the petition for the removal of Sheldon Pollock as mentor and general editor of Murty Classical Library first of all because the project did not seem to score well on the commonsensical scale of home economics Handing $56 million to elite US universities reverses the very logic that made Infosys rich If brainpower not to mention manpower is at least five times cheaper in India wouldn’t we get more bang for the buck here The annual income from the bequest works out to a very substantial $280000 per annum at the modest rate of 5 per cent returns This is the equivalent of almost Rs 2 crore If this is how much it costs to produce the reported five volumes per year then the cost per volume is a whopping Rs 40 lakh Until the details of the spends are known we can’t verify the math but it seems likely that we could have ensured greater cost-effectiveness in India The second reason is more ideological and anti-colonial In the heyday of imperialism the West’s study of the rest was not always benevolent nor impartial Instead it was involved in the West’s agenda to conquer subdue exploit and even exterminate several nations societies and cultures We Indians need to remember as Bernard Cohn famously put it that “The conquest of India was a conquest of knowledge” No wonder the cultural and historical memory of our own struggle against foreign domination is still fresh What is not equally obvious is that the battle to regain India’s civilisational poise equilibrium and self-confidence is far from over In matters of culture education and thought we are still largely colonised and subservient The Indian mentality particularly that of the elites remains a prisoner of Western categories Not just the clash but the clasp of civilisations is as much a struggle over epistemic categories and representations as it is over economic and political interests Paradoxically even as India has powered ahead in the latter spheres its educational and cultural institutions have deteriorated Regretfully the politicisation of academics by caste language and regional lobbies has eroded the credibility of our universities The possibly related emigration and relocation of lakhs of gifted Indian intellectuals to Western countries has only exacerbated our sense of inferiority Indian knowledge production especially in humanities and social sciences lacks global recognition No wonder Rohan Murty preferred the prestige and brand value of Columbia and Harvard for his Library He is not the only one; many Indian business leaders have chosen similarly to endow foreign universities rather than Indian ones In a recent article Murty laments that we have allowed “our institutions manuscripts and scholarship… to fall into a state of disrepair And this I am going to help rebuild” How By giving $56 mn to the likes of Pollock at Columbia and Harvard How will they help rebuild Indian scholarly institutions and traditions Murty could have been visionary and courageous trying to set up an editorial collective in India itself even if it were not housed at a conventional university Such a move might have been a game-changer in Indian academics perhaps inspiring copycat endowments in addition to instituting best practises in Indian critical and cultural production To reverse the situation for argument’s sake suppose a library of 500 best books of American culture with an endowment from say Bill Gates was handed over to Chinese scholars to produce wouldn’t interested Americans protest The analogy may not be entirely apt but shows Murty’s lack of confidence in our own abilities to read translate and publish books of our culture There could have been other models more participatory and collaborative than the present which I am not sure were fully explored Moving to the more controversial demand to sack Pollock in his 1985 essay “The Theory of Practice and the Practice of Theory in Indian Intellectual History” the learned professor damns the entire shastric tradition which he considers co-extensive with Sanskritic culture as authoritarian The basis for such a sweeping indictment is a reductive misreading of the Vedas not only as fixed transcendental signifiers and authorisers of chaturvarga but as also responsible for the wholesale and systematic blocking of critical thinking through the entire course of Indian civilisation Anyone with even a rudimentary understanding of India would balk at such an egregiously arrogant impeachment From such a perspective pre-modern India becomes an object of modern rectification if not rejection We did nothing for thousands of years except oppress one another: Now “a great white man” must messiah-like take charge of our tradition to rescue us from our own oppressive legacies Isn’t it obvious how such demonisation of Indian pasts serves to re-authorise neo-Orientalism almost requiring an outsider from the dominant Western academy to help set us right And doesn’t our history demonstrate that where scholars lead the charge against Indian culture missionaries are only too ready to follow through Indeed Pollock has increasingly identified himself with left-liberal even Hindu-phobic causes signing various petitions working to nix positions in Indic studies that diaspora philanthropists wished to endow in the United States in addition to advising the government of India reportedly to end “its authoritarian menace” on Indian campuses This smacks of politically motivated hegemonic practices which are ideological rather than academic Aren’t such attitudes bound to

about the disruption this has caused in the world economy Is it about hyper-nationalism and the fear of immigrants in general and Islam in particular It is of course all this but Brexit is primarily about too much democracy That might sound like a terrible thing to say yet recent events show us that when democracy is given full rein the results are often disastrous Who were the people who voted for Britain to leave EU The voting pattern shows that many of them came from the depressed North East of England its industrial centres plus many smaller cities It also shows that a large proportion of the “Leave” voters were older people Those voting to “Remain” were predominantly young plus those in the large cities notably London The world’s most powerful politicians and a large number of UK’s intellectuals all wanted the country to remain in the EU It wasn’t quite white collar versus blue collar but the vote does suggest that those who saw the bigger picture and the more important issues involved wanted to remain while those bothered by the issues that affected them personally opted to leave The “Leave” faction was also influenced by the inflammatory rhetoric by people who stoked fears of unchecked immigration In the end when people were given the option to vote on a vital matter their decision was ruled by emotion and not by logic Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making news If popular referendums were held in India on some of our most important issues what would be the likely results To start with India would cease to be a secular country; it would be a Hindu Rashtra which would probably treat its minorities rather roughly A referendum in Kashmir We know where that would go Similarly if you jog your memory a bit there was a time (in the 1960s) when a large number of Tamilians felt so alienated from the rest of the country that there was open talk of Tamil Nadu seceding Hold a referendum on the death penalty and it’s likely that the majority would be for it Most people would probably want castration as the punishment for rape As the vast majority on Twitter and other social media and vicious individuals like Subramanian Swamy constantly show democracy and unfettered free speech results in the expression of the worst side of human nature Give these forces a direct role in policy making and the world will inexorably descend to the depths That is precisely why a democracy installs institutions some directly elected (parliament) some not (the judiciary the executive the media) to take rational decisions on important issues Members of directly elected institutions are of course influenced hugely by populist sentiment or often stir up base instincts of the electorate for their own selfish ends But they are controlled by a system of checks and balances: First of all there is an elected opposition in Parliament and secondly the judiciary the executive and the media ensure that illegal and unethical policies are rejected Nothing illustrates the notion of “too much democracy” than the rise and rise of Donald Trump He has risen to this position by exploiting the worst fears of Americans and by letting loose the base instincts of racism and hyper-nationalism Is democracy dangerous then It is if those who have risen to positions of responsibility abdicate that responsibility or do not confront and defeat the evil genies who occasionally escape from the bottle To end here is a sad irony: If a referendum were to be held in our country asking people to choose between a benevolent dictator and our parliamentary system they would choose the former This is how too much democracy defeats democracy itself Dharker is a writer and columnist For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related
