Hunt for the treasures of Vijayanagara Empire - GreatGameIndia

(Jews)… who are we… for 2000 years we have no place to go and now we have a home, the State of Israel… But still the killing of (ADAE) has never stopped worldwide… Now Munich. While our children are killed all across countries the world is playing volleyball… – Attributed to Prime Minister Golda Meir of Israel, who decided to act decisively against those who killed Israeli athletes during Munich Olympics.

The theory of the Clash of Civilizations envisions the destruction of the old guard civilizations, ideologies, culture and institutions and paves the way for a new global economic village and free market society. The resulting societal progress is envisioned as being controlled by a select elite, mediated by currency. In contrast, the Classical Renaissance envisions the general welfare as being brought about by ideas, discoveries and their applications flowering from the human intellect, being used for the development of society and the state. This latter ideology gave rise to expandable and durable communities of shared principle among perfectly sovereign nation-states, thus giving birth to the nation-state concept.

One of the results of the extremely violent churning in Europe and the West Asia (Middle East) from the third century to the fifteenth century has been a polarization of power groups. One is called the “Anglo-Dutch Aristocratic Elite”, roughly polarized towards the Jewish cause. It will be abbreviated henceforth as ADAE. The theory of the Clash of Civilizations, which in primal form is the power of politics, is traced back to this elite group.

Unknown to many within the borders of India many Indians are being killed, displaced and forgotten right at the time of composing this article. Still unknown to many the mining companies responsible for this like De Beers and others hail from the same State of Israel which resisted the displacement of her population. These companies are becoming the tool or are hand in glove for the displacement of millions of Indians on their own soil just for the exploitation of resource so that the west can maintain an edge in the unipolar world as defined by the Anglican mercantile political philosophy which was the forerunner of slave trade in the world.

The development of a mono-cultural and monotonous religious adherence is the essence of economic domination by mercantile political world. And the culture is what the mercantile elite decide to be the way of life. It will be more preferable if the rulers or resource rich countries also adhere to the same cultural practices or religious beliefs, as that will pursue populations to follow in conformity with their rulers and geo-political masters. Even if cultures of these resource rich countries differ from mercantile masters as long as the political leadership is hooked and swayed by the mercantile political philosophy, it does not matter which culture the populations follow. Commenting on the mercantile political economy, Mayer Rothschild once made a historic comment which is resoundingly true even after centuries – “give me the control of the currency of any nation and I care not who rules it…”

Liberalization and Privatization were the tools of the mercantile world in the long history of 400 year struggle to dominate resource rich Asia in general and India in particular. Since the beginning of liberalization of Indian economy for the supposed ‘development’ of India many Indians within the border of India became second-class citizens or non-citizens in their own native lands, country and cultural settings. They became the Helots of India, a derogatory term used by the Romans to indicate non-Romans in their country, intermediate in status between slaves and citizens. However still for whose sake is this development, is still not yet answered as it is tacitly understood that it is for the western countries to continue their geopolitical fight with their yester year cold war adversaries – the Russians.

It wouldn’t be farfetched to say that in the name of development India is now run only for the profit maximization of giant western Multinational Corporations (MNCs) which are in their latest avatar from the erstwhile East India Companies (EICs). In fact all the owners of current MNCs are the grand children of the previous East India Companies, in lineage, spirit, methods, tactics and business policies (read Business Intelligence).

The first order of Business of East India Companies in those days was to take fertile lands under organic farming and multiculture agricultural land and put it to produce monoculture cash crops like Opium or Indigo. As a result absolute famine conditions would dawn in a few years and displace owners out of land. The only silver lining of East India Companies or later British government was they provided alternate land and employment for all those displaced civilians from forests or river banks or fertile lands.  Though according to British Land Acquisition Act of 1894 the government was not legally bound to provide any compensation to displaced people except cash compensation; the British had some humanitarian corner either because of the Christian guilt of sin, which they carried as rulers or afraid that not providing suitable compensation may lead to another 1857 style Freedom Struggle which they were in no position to fight. Independent India being secular need not worry about either the Christian guilt of sin or about any revolt by her citizens as all have absolute freedom to be in dependency on England or the West.

So we amended the same British act of 1894 in 1984 with more provisions to displace people and their living habitats just for the development of MNCs. According to Amnesty International Report 2008, people in India are displaced from all states in India – Orissa, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Pondichery, Maharashtra and Meghalaya. How many people are displaced? Nobody knows. Government of India collects many statistics every year on everything and anything except on the displaced people from the resource rich forests or river banks or fertile lands. None in India in government circles have any figure for the number of people that have been or are being displaced by big developmental projects or sacrificed on the altar of Developmental Mantra by every national government.

Where do these displaced people go? Eventually they end up in slums of urban centers on government lands or on disputed lands. They become vote bank for urban political parties. In most cases once the land title is allotted these slum dwellers are uprooted from these slums so that big corporation can build shopping malls or apartment complexes for the development of the nation.
