Why India on sale in the Great Game of Globalisation?

India provided a unique market setting for the rise of the economic power of European nation-states in general. The industrial revolution and subsequent mechanization of industry and militaries needed a staging and testing ground. India and other countries of East Asia offered the best solution. For now, we provide one elementary picture of the course of things. We urge the reader to construct others. One of the starting points of the industrial revolution was the mechanization of weaving. This resulted in a vast supply of cloth, which the European markets were unable to absorb. So the British and Dutch East- India companies shipped them to India and started selling the cloth to the Indians. To control this monopoly, and the large profits, the British limited, and often prohibited, the production of cloth by domestic workers in India. And in order to sustain the massive demand for raw cotton, they formulated various treaties with the local rulers and forced the Indian farmers to grow only cotton. The increased production required more transport which resulted in the invention of the steam engine, which may be a second stage of the industrial revolution. The steam engines in turn required coal to run. India again provided vast tracks of forest lands and coal mines to sustain the demands of vast amounts of coal for the steam engines. The disgruntled and displaced farmers organized resistance on small scales to this plunder by the British. The British therefore had to equip their army with more accurate and deadly weapons to deal with the revolting population in India. This stage of the industrial revolution saw the mechanization of warfare replacing the traditional swords with self loading riffles and machine guns. Once the military superiority over the Indian rulers was established, the British rulers started a large scale production of opium in the fertile land in the Gangetic belt between Uttar Pradesh an Bihar. The steep rise in production of opium was then transported to China and used to create a large scale addiction of the Chinese population, to subjugate the Chinese empire. The huge profits derived from the sale of opium were then used to destabilize many small European kingdoms to achieve the ultimate objective of the owners of the East India company – gaining an upper hand in Geo-politics in theaters across the world.
The average Indian citizen is left with the impression that the religious wars of Europe are a relic of the past. This erroneous assumption is perhaps critical in preventing him from understanding the political reality of today. The fact is that while the wars of Europe provided motive for the exploitation of India in the past, they continue to do so even today. We hope this article will provide an insight into the sophistication and complexity of the manner in which these are carried out. The events of 11 September 2001 had a cataclysmic effect on several aspects of Geo-politics. Through a complex series of linkages, which we shall discuss in the body of the book, it has driven several key economic powers to bankruptcy. However, the Geo-political players had not been sitting idle waiting for this to happen. From 1995 to 1998 NASA had launched a series of space explorations (using the space shuttle Columbia) that mapped the earth in general, and India in particular, using three dimensional satellite imagery. One of the key objectives of this mission was the prediction of natural resource distributions under the earth.
A critical discovery from this satellite imagery prove that one of the ancient names of India actually describes her accurately. This name, “Ratna Garbha” (pregnant with diamonds) is used, for example, in the Amara Kosha. This exploration revealed that diamond mines worth trillions of dollars stretch from the Mahanadi Basin in Orissa to the Kaveri basin in the Southern tip of Tamil Nadu, and from the vast tracts of Bihar to the northern borders of Andhra Pradesh. The exploration also confirmed the already known reserves of natural gas along the entire East and West coasts of India. These and other untapped natural resources worth trillions provide a massive hope for the economies of the West that are close to bankruptcy after September 2001. This has thus forced all the major players of Geo-politics to beeline for the continued exploitation of India. We hypothesize here that had Britain been aware of this far greater wealth possessed by India, they would not have left in 1947…they would have continued to rule on in the manner of their doing in South Africa. We leave it to the more dedicated of our readers to play out this scenario.
Even a team of elementary school students objectively constructing the equations of Geo-politics would recognize that areas rich in resources will see violent conflict unless the natives can manage the situation shrewdly. The external attacks on oil rich Iraq is the most recent example bearing out this hypothesis. The violent domestic upheavals of oil and natural gas rich Iran is another. The international savagery in mineral rich Kosovo and the Balkans is yet another prime example. To assume that India would somehow be exempt from this externally guided violence flies in the face of all common sense and in the face of past history.

For the past fifty years India has been battling a series of violent fundamentalist movements: Christian militias in the North East, Maoist Christian terrorists in Central India and Nepal, Islamic terrorists in Kashmir, the radical Tamilian “freedom fighters” of Sri Lanka, not to mention the communists of Bengal (many of whom are Christian converts in disguise). We mention that each and every one of these movements has as its aim the breakup of India. We also mention that each of these movements has an ideology and resource base derived from outside India. India has already been subjected to planned holocausts during the Partition of India. One cannot help noting the callousness of the western authors who used this as a study on the “impact of religion on social migration”. Note the sense of helplessness which Indians felt at the senseless killing of civilians in Bombay, pilgrims at Godhra, the hijacking at Kandahar, the planned attack on the parliament, to name only a few. It will be clear that these are not “spontaneously occurring” as is often made out, but are carried out according to very definite agendas and plans of the Geo-political players.

  1. Keep up the good work. I am learning. Keep religion out. Our strength can be our weakness too.

    The primary scope of those projects was to achieve self-sufficiency through the local production of previously imported goods, the mechanisation of agriculture and the spread of education and health care . However, all those experiences failed bitterly due to a lack of realism: most countries did not have a pre-industrial bourgeoisie able to carry on a capitalistic development or even a stable and peaceful state . Those aborted experiences left huge debts toward western countries and fuelled public corruption .
