Why Indian nationalism must win over Macaulayan ideas

In the first part of this column Colonel (retd) Anil Athale spoke of an aspirational India that is attempting to throw away shackles of Macualayism and the challenges that Narendra Modi faces. Part 1: Election 2014: Modi versus Macaulay's ghost In the second and final part, Col Athale says the fight between forces of Indian nationalism and Macaulayism aided and abetted by West is going to be long, hard and dirty. The outcome will decide whether India becomes a superpower or continues to wallow ... Rediff.com, 1 month ago

Why 2014 looks eerily like 1914

'The parallels between 1914 and 2014 are striking. The crumbling of American and Russian hegemony, the rise of powerful terrorist groups, ferment in the Middle East and the rise of China... These closely mirror the world of 1914,' says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). This year the world will commemorate the centenary of one of the most cataclysmic events of the last century -- the First World War which was fought from 1914 to 1918. Most historians agree that the Second World War, that was fought ...

Watch out Mr Modi! Danger confronts India

'Three security challenges could emerge shortly. The possibility (almost bordering on certainty) is as certain as the fact that night follows day: A terrorist attack by a Pakistan-based group. Chinese intrusion on the border. Communal tension/riots.' Colonel Anil A Athale (retd) explains what the Modi Sarkar needs to be prepared for. No, I don't wish to add to the plethora of views in the Indian media offering the new government advice how to solve the nation's problems. Nevertheless, I am ...

Election 2014: Modi versus Macaulay's ghost

The post-mandate comments that ‘darkness has descended on India’ show the kind of opposition Narendra Modi has to overcome. It is this aspirational India that is attempting to throw away the shackles of Macaulayism. Make no mistake, it is a tectonic shift and a beginning of the end of the Macaulayan mindset that has ‘ruled’ India for close to 60 years, says Colonel (retd) Anil Athale. The 2014 election results marked a tectonic shift in Indian history. Elections are akin ...

Punjab crisis revisited: Lessons from the insurgency

'It is time for all Indians to understand the truth that led to a 10-year long bloodbath in Punjab and not attempt to glorify the terrorists under the garb of human rights violations or scratch old wounds,' says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd), on the 30th anniversary of Operation Bluestar. It is by now widely accepted that it was the Congress-Akali Dal rivalry that led to Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale's rise and began the cycle of violence in Punjab. Are we witnessing a similar pattern, where the ...

Nehru's great legacy blotted by China defeat

While Nehru remains an icon for many, including his critics, for the stellar role he played in building institutions of democracy, the 1962 humiliation blots Nehru's copybook, says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). Fifty years ago on May 27 Jawaharlal Nehru, our first prime minister, passed on and for a generation like this author's, an era ended. There was seldom an eye in the country that had no tears on that day. For the post 1947 generation he was the beloved 'Chacha Nehru'. For this ...

What India must do in the emerging Cold War

India needs to have a relook of the whole gamut of its relations with major powers and also prepare for a more turbulent neighbourhood. But such is the tyranny of the Indian status quo mindset that any talk of a relook at the nuclear doctrine or foreign relations is treated as blasphemy, says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). Irrespective of who wins on May 16, it is widely accepted wisdom that the new government will have to immediately tackle the economic crisis of stagnation. The looming crisis ...

Why Modi wants to change India's nuclear policy

'Imagine a scenario where a terror strike by Pakistan-supported jihadis causes thousands of deaths in India. India in retaliation destroys terror camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.' 'There is a clamour for revenge in Pakistan and that country begins to fuel its missiles for a nuclear strike against India and that is detected by Indian satellites.' 'No sane government in India will then wait for the nuclear bombs to fall on Delhi before launching its own strike. To be effective, this may well ...
