Description

Justifying the encroachment into Indian land and usurpation of sacred Indian territory by the adventurous Chinese, the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, incredulously remarked that the land occupied by the Chinese was where not a single blade of grass grew and constituted territory that was useless and uninhabitable. The Christian tenet that placed man at the centre of creation brought in the idea of nature as just a resource for exploitation. The author emphasizes how every stratum of our society bears a colonial stamp and why it is essential to judge all of our social structures, religion, polity, economics, and law using a decolonial approach and rejecting European-centric ideas. Claudius Buchanan a Scottish clergyman credited with corruption of the word “Jagannath” to “juggernaut”, portrayed Hinduism as a ‘bloody, violent, superstitious and backward religious system’, which required an immediate ‘social reform’.

It made the colonized people see their past as one vast wasteland of non-achievement and it made them desirous of distancing themselves from that wasteland. He was able to provide “evidence” but such “evidence” is usually (not always) circumstantial and nothing but rationalisation of the people of those times to attribute their actions to some sort of spiritual endeavour to justify themselves. Swarajya - a big tent for liberal right of centre discourse that reaches out, engages and caters to the new India. He makes no attempt to understand that the humanities are inherently subjective and all the evidence that is provided by scholars of humanities is purely interpretations of observations and should be judged based on their utility in real life rather than their ideological underpinnings. The book itself was hardly readable with long, lawyerly sentences and took me some time and effort to read.However, what surprises me most on Decoloniality is we in Bharat have never heard about it or have an idea that such a school of thought exists and what it's implications are formerly colonised societies. It also puts forth the concept of Middle Eastern coloniality, which preceded its European variant and allies with it in the context of Bharat to advance their shared antipathy towards the Indic worldview. Finally, just as the Bhagavad Gita has been the guiding light and continues to be so for a multitude of generations of Bharatiyas, this book is going to be a beacon of light for all of us on the Indic side and is but the first light and a ray of hope for all surviving Indic communities for a path towards complete decoloniality that will ultimately lead to the reflourishing of the Indic Civilisation across the sacred geography of Bharat and world over. This also accorded an opportunity for the colonizer to mock the OET of the colonized as abstruse and apocryphal flights of fancy.

This book seeks to unravel the veil of coloniality that has profoundly shaped the thinking of the conquered by white European Christian subjugation. This volume ends in 1919, when the British gave India a constitution — the Government of India Act of 1919, 84 years after Macaulay introduced his education policy.

While both North and South America and nearly half of Africa have been converted to the religion of the European colonisers, this is not the case with the former colonies in Asia. However, the most important aspect of this section and the aspect where Deepak's brilliance shine through are where he discusses how the Christian OET was used to understand indigenous communities world over and Indic society with regard to Bharat.
