Indian Nationalism & Personal Ideological Ambition Sreyus Palliyani United we stand, divided we fall. A the most plausible to happen. The British had intended to leave India, broken in fiphrase I have often chanted with pride ever nancial and geographic capacities, which since I first heard it in history class about were readily passed through thanks to the India as a child. burning personal ambition of Jinnah on one side and his Indian counterparts on the With a childhood spent beyond the other. India just was not ready. The British borders of India, I was never really robbed Empire had called our bluff! Is Mountbatten of any Indian sentiment nor patriotism that to blame? No, he carried out his duties as would have been bestowed upon me had I he was expected. Are we to be blamed for been borne in the land of the tri-colours. On wanting freedom and obtaining it sooner the contrary, it reinforced my vehemence as than we were ready for it? If only....... a proud nationalist. History is always the tale of the victor. I realized this adage during my intellectually rebellious days of college (with no shade of red), when I explored the independent historical records. I grasped with shocking exasperation that what I was taught in school was nothing more than half-truths bent to the populist notion. My vexations over my country's misappropriated history are a few, but I will only list the ones grovelingly pertinent to the times.

Next, the British political geographer, shamelessly drew up the borders for India and Pakistan considering census figures for religious distribution, with a juxtaposition of geographic principles incorporating the divisions of transport infrastructure, rivers and elevation. I would consider myself a reasonably educated man, and as a layman in geography, the stated methodology seems quite sound. Which is exactly what the naive (or perhaps not so) political geographers thought when they tore up families, homes and livelihoods. Further, India was decided to be divided into states who would be divided on a linguistic basis; a move which will spark the first flames of division of the country into North India and South India, into the land of the Madrasis, Mallus, Mumbaikars and so on. If only.......

During the first years of the independence movement, the non-violent father would often demand of the British, 'Leave us to God or to Anarchy'. And when Louis Mountbatten announced to the Congress that the British would leave India on the 15th of August in 1947, the latter was

Pakistan soon sent in their troops for the annexation, however the formidable Indian army was well on its way to counter the invasion with draconian might....... but, they were halted several miles short of the confrontation with a cease-fire when we were hours away from having Kashmir under the Indian flag!

most difficult to heal. Indira Gandhi's political image deteriorated day by day. She lost millions in support on a daily basis owing to her infamous panel. Jayaprakash Narayan and his allies were well on their way to free India from the weakening iron clutches of autocracy. However, patience is not a virtue known to be an asset of the post independent Indian. Jayaprakash Narayan and his allies, could have waited. The next election was approaching, and with a charisma that was fast deteriorating for Indira Gandhi, was fast ascending for Jayaprakash Narayan. With a bit of consolidation, his front would have swept the elections. But instead, they demanded her immediate resignation and prosecution. In their desperation, they even charged her with the first misdemeanor they could get their hands on- 'Electoral Malpractice', a crime which was trivial in

comparison to her atrocities. And thus, with her back against the wall, Indira Gandhi executed the only action she could to stay in power. She declared India's third emergency (the first two was during the Indo-China and Bangladesh-Pakistan wars respectively) citing internal disturbance as per article 352 of the Indian constitution. India's darkest period of 21 months thus began. If only....... It is often said that history repeats itself, and unfortunately, it is also true that man fails to learn from history. The demonetization drive which we all witnessed in the recent past was another example where individualistic idealism took precedence over pragmatism resulting in a net loss for the country. To be fair, no one can question Narendra Modi's intentions behind the move as data from credible sources did suggest

that at least 19% of the 500 and 1000-rupee notes in circulation were black (not accounted from tax perspective). In value terms, this summed up to more than INR 3 Trillion or 3 Lakhs crores. So, the expectation was that this currency would be discarded or would be returned with appropriations. What actually happened was that 98.96% of the old notes came back to the banking system. In other words, only 16,000 Crores were discarded and there was no surge in tax collection. Further, it doubled the cost

of currency printing and we all know the hardships the nation had to go through. If only....... Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Narendra Modi.... these three are possibly the only Indian Prime Ministers to reign with absolute power. To quote from the Dark Knight, many a time we need our leaders to try to be the hero we need while often forgetting to be the heroes we deserve.

Breaking the Stereotype Vidyaaraj

Stereotyping is an outlandishly stupid form of ignorance and therefore is to be prudently ignored. But it assumes a gigantically criminal form when someone tries to shove it down your throat by stating it as a general rule of thumb or principle. Such acts of criminal ignorance should be outrightly condemned if not severely rebuked. Stereotyping is the act of making judgments or assumptions about people (often without actually knowing them in person) and sharing it to others. They are baseless generalizations about a type of person or a group of people. Some stereotypes may be of harmless nature (still useless), but most of them are negative or far too offensive (spare me for ‘stereotyping’ the Stereotypes). Now let me substantiate my argu-

32

ment and also touch some interesting aspects of stereotypes. Some typical stereotypes ( let me call them ‘poor generalizations’) I've come across quite often in my life are: all wealthy individuals have grown rich by exploiting the poor, people from X state are all dark, everyone from X state eat beef and drink alcohol, people from X region love fish, people from X state are selfish, people from X city are ultra-modern, people from X city are arrogant, all people from X country look the same, if you cannot speak X language fluently you are unintelligent, X religion followers are radical fundamentalists, X countrymen eat spicy food, X state people are all communists, X state men are lazy, X

PravasiExpress Vishu-Easter Suppliment 2018


coloured people are inferior , all members of X political outfit are corrupt and so on. The list is endless... I’m sure, while reading this; your mind would have already played games with you by replacing the Xs above with certain names, groups or places. Stereotypes based on work profiles are also not that uncommon. For example, most politicians are unscrupulous, most maids are ‘house lifters’, every truck driver is an alcoholic, all policemen are venal, most actors are debauchees etc. Nothing can be farther from the truth. To give you a perspective on stereotyping, let me make a poor generalization. It’s as ridiculous saying most Mumbaikars are curly haired since Sachin Tendulkar who's got curly hair hails from there. If you felt this as an insanely stupid example, let me tell you that the real life stereotypes we often come across (many a time goes unnoticed) are far more preposterous and would give my ‘Sachin example’ a run for its money with comparative ease. Why I call such stereotypes 'criminal' is coz they form the basis for prejudice which in turn is used to justify discrimination, lethal attitudes and unjust actions. It lays the foundation for sexism, racism and even nurtures extremism when people feel a strong sense of indignation. I witnessed the deadly impact of stereotyping in its darkest form very recently when I saw a group of kids within my apartment complex shooing away a particular kid from joining their group. On enquiry, I could understand

that their ‘educated parents’ have forbidden them from making friends with that particular kid since he belongs to some X community. What a shame!! It took me just 5 minutes to make these innocent kids to bond together and there they were playing and jostling around without any biases. I very well knew that their friendship is to be short-lived and may last only until they are administered with the next lethal shot of ‘stereotype morphine’ by their parents. The impact of consistent exposure to such negative generalizations may be far-reaching. The culprit here may not be just the parents; he can be a close friend, family member, acquaintance or maybe we ourselves. This unwarranted exposure not only engraves an image in our conscious minds but also etches some of these stereotypes as unquestionable beliefs deep down our subconscious which then shape our behaviors and attitudes accordingly. It can be the major reason why some individuals develop self- limiting beliefs which may be fundamentally untrue. The consequences can be devastatingly serious like inferiority/superiority complex, self- sabotage, poor self-esteem and in some extreme cases even make them take fatal decisions. On a lighter note, stereotypes can be sometimes too trivial or ridiculously funny as well. Some harmless and funny generalizations which I've come across (most of them being gender stereotypes) are: men don't cry (yeah, they just sweat

PravasiExpress Vishu-Easter Suppliment 2018

through eyes), women love shopping (do men hate shopping?), women sea mauve and men see purple (really), women cannot park cars easily (please evaluate), South Indian men love moustache (Oh yeah Stalin & Hitler hails from there), a CS girl cannot fall in love with a Mech guy (Director Gowtham Menon has tried his best to break this stereotype I guess), India is land of snake charmers (I would consider you extremely fortunate if you’ve seen one till date in your entire life), Chinese products are inferior (Yeah I know a few - Prada, Coach, Armani, Burberry, Apple, Huawei, Lenovo, Nike, Adidas, H&M), most Chinese men know kung fu (I can see my Chinese friends LoL) etc. All typical stereotypes are poor generalizations but all generalizations may not be categorized as Stereotypes. In fact, generalizations are required for human existence and progress. Sounds contradictory??!! Let me explain- Our belief systems are definitely driven by our generalizations about what we’ve learned through our experience. Here the cardinal difference is that this kind of generalization is not about an individual or group of people but about the results/impacts of our actions. eg: Our generalizations about how to open a bottle give us a feeling of certainty and learning and when we get a new bottle from the store, without much thinking just open it This is applicable in all walks of human life from switching on something, to driving a car, to using a mobile phone. Without a sense of certainty acquired through generalsation about the results of our actions, it is impossible to commit any productive

34

action. This kind of generalization is nothing but the art of learning. Stereotyping, on the other hand, gives a false sense of understanding and wisdom to the ignorant. It can be metaphorically equated to a retard in possession of a loaded gun (I may sound a bit overboard but believe me it's not) coz he may be instrumental in changing the course of people's lives, especially if he is influential or is adorning any position of power. Also it nips the learning opportunities at the bud for the ignorant since he is under severe bias and hence carries a closed mindset. It’s a great social threat as well since it presents with an opportunity to an individual to project his or her biases and dislikes as a general rule. Do you believe religious leaders can instigate their followers through colored stereotypes? You bet. It's a dark form of patronizing behavior. The fact is that some, few or none of those views may be true as it is a completely personal perspective of the individual or what he may have acquired from his predecessors. Some people develop stereotypes out of their repeated exposure to the same experience from people of similar background or group of people who belong to a particular class, gender or location. Eg: a woman who has been subjected to repeated abuse by the menfolk would naturally develop hatred towards all men in the world; a man who is repeatedly cheated by the people whom he trusted would end up

PravasiExpress Vishu-Easter Suppliment 2018


being a complete cynic. The victim is perfectly justified in developing this stereotype but it may miserably deprive them of the reality of the world at large. In such cases, empathetic counselling and exposure to repeated positive experiences are the only way out to break the stereotypes.

It’ll be prudent to commit ourselves with iron resolve to never fall a victim to the generalization bias, consciously stay away from it and never ever stereotype anything or anyone. The best thing we can do to our next gen in this context is not to pass on our mindless biases to them through our words, actions or behavior. Let’s build a generaOn introspection, we'll have to agree tion who will no longer make poor genthat at some point in our lives we all eralizations. would've worn the sinister gown of stereotyping something or someone. the next time someone makes stereoIf you've not done it you belong to an typical statement, ask them to rethink elite group of blessed souls. Being a and if they argue, just stay away. Don't culprit rarely brings pain but when you feel sorry for condemning such poor are at the receiving end that’s when generalizations. unbearable pain strikes. We all need to remember that today's culprits can be P.S: Through my articles I do not intomorrow's victims. tend to underestimate the IQ levels of any of the readers. These are just The key to dismantling the ‘stereotype my personal opinion with no intent to threat’ is to first acknowledge their undermine anyone's perspectives or existence and then to increase the beliefs. When I say someone is good, awareness among those who know- it doesn't imply someone else is bad. ingly/unknowingly are accountable for Similarly if I say someone's beautiful, propagating or practicing it. it doesn't mean someone else is ugly. Hope you will not generalize.
