huddled in a trench wearing their trademark turbans and holding their weapons close These could easily be photos from the Punjabi Mussalman company of 57th Wilde’s Rifles (FF) from anywhere in India from the early 19th century However they are rare photographs that document the first European sojourn of the Indian soldier in the early 20th century India — a British colony then — with its sizeable trained military force had dispatched two infantry divisions and a cavalry brigade to the Western Front to halt the German juggernaut Belgium a neutral state according to the Treaty of London (1839) was invaded by Germany in 1914 An exhibition showcasing India’s contribution during that time — “India in Flander Fields” — which was inaugurated by King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium on their recent State visit to India is currently on display at the Capital’s National Museum A coffee table book by the same name was also unveiled at the Capital’s Maneckshaw Centre last week The exhibition has been jointly curated by Indian military historian Rana Chhina of United Services Institution of India (USI) and Belgian historian Dominiek Dendooven who works at In Flanders Fields Museum (Ypres) “We at the USI had been involved with the centenary celebrations of India’s involvement in the first World War (WWI) which changed the course of world history This is an offshoot of that in a bilateral way This is our way of remembering and acknowledging the Indian soldiers who had died fighting for Belgium’s freedom a century ago which not many people know about” says Rana Chhina Chhina and fellow curator Dendooven had been working on this exhibition and book for about four years The exhibition has illustrations artist impressions photographs maps artefacts — weapons and uniforms along with letters and postcards All share the story of the Indian soldier who at that time was ill-prepared for Europe Both culturally and geographically “They came in late 1914 still wearing their cotton summer uniforms and were not prepared or equipped to fight against a behemoth continental Army A contemporary print from 1915 depicting a Belgian soldier supporting an injured Indian sepoy while a French west-African tirailleurs senegalais ((Senegalese rifleman) walks alongside Also the European winter was a first for them Frostbite and exposure to the elements added to their woes” says Dendooven who has worked extensively on the contribution of the non-European soldiers in WWI “We had photographs of Indian soldiers and Chinese labourers There was information but nothing had been written about them I wanted to know why was there an influx of people from other parts of the world in this small area of Belgium” says Dendooven on the need to document foreign soldiers during WWI Since information was in abundance collecting historical material was not that difficult There were written records about the soldiers “This was recorded history in India and Belgium Also there was a sensor who read every bit of correspondence that came in and went out There are records of soldiers writing home to small obscure villages and recounting their European experiences The Indian Army and the USI had records of them” says Chhina It’s interesting to note that how both sides — Indian and Belgian — were in equal shock “No Belgian had seen an Indian before and no Indian had ever seen a non-elite white person earlier They were curious about each other’s cultures Also they stayed with ordinary folk in Belgium and realised that not all white people are as brutal as the British were to Indians in India” adds Dendooven The European experience also opened the Indian soldier’s minds to educating women after seeing the liberation and sense of equanimity that women enjoyed in Belgium “Many Indian soldiers wrote back and sent money to help build schools for girls They realisarted that the only way forward was through education” adds Chhina “We need to understand that WWI set things in motion which ultimately led to the demise of the British Raj Many times we focus only on the popular political reasoning and ignore the other subaltern narratives Look at the political and social impact it must have had where the Indian soldier is not fighting against but alongside other European soldiers” asserts Chhina The sentiment is shared by Dendooven “Here is the Indian soldier fighting for the Independence of another country but what about their own Independence And after the WWI they come back and then Jallianwala Bagh happened There was this huge sense of betrayal wherein after having laid down their lives for the British Empire this is what they got That’s when the narrative changed to poorna Swaraj” concludes Dendooven The exhibition is

reserving 85 percent of MBBS and BDS seats to state board students and only 15 percent for CBSE and other boards holding that it amounted to discrimination among equals Allowing petitions by some CBSE students challenging the 22 June state government order Justice K Ravichndrababu held that the impugned reservation was bad in law and violated Art 14 of the Constitution (Equality before law) Representational image AFP He also held that the reservation indirectly meddled with the object and process of the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) and compromised on merits of selection The judge directed authorities to prepare a fresh merit list and conduct the counselling for admissions accordingly He had on 11 July reserved orders on the petitions by Darnish Kumar a student represented by his parents and two others and ordered status quo on the admission process till the adjudication of the matter The state government had defended the Government Order saying the policy of the state government was not in favour of NEET conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) More than 50 percent of the questions in the NEET were based on the CBSE syllabus and hence there was an inequality in the all-India exam it had contended Assailing the Government Order the petitioners had submitted that the Supreme court had clearly stated that when admission is based

Australia Test team needs a number six With the Ashes series just over a month away Australia’s number six position in Test team is still up for grabs Australia are known to have an all-rounder for that spot and currently Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis are the leading contendors for the spot But former Australia captain Steve Waugh has thrown in the name of Moises Henriques and said that he should be considered for the Test team for the Ashes series against England “Moises Henriques has been in good form the last couple years in domestic cricket (and) I think he’s ready to play Test match cricket again” Waugh was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz “He’s a very good player It’s good he’s put his name back up there again No6 is up for debate I guess it’s Maxwell or Stoinis or maybe Henriques or maybe a couple of other options there” Waugh played 168 Tests for Australia from 1985-2004 and is considered one of the best captains in world cricket He added that Australia should also have a speciallist wicketkeeper for the series “Again we’re talking about who is going to be the keeper but they tend to focus on the ‘keeper scoring runs not how he’s taking the ball” Waugh said “(Peter) Nevill was doing a great job and got dropped and now (Matthew) Wade’s actually improved his ‘keeping and now they’re talking about dropping him “(Nevill) was the fall guy last time He’s a fantastic cricketer But you’ve got to be fair to Matthew Wade now He kept pretty well in the subcontinent It’s difficult to know where they go from there” Wuagh also opined that England will struggle in Australia without star all-rounder Ben Stokes and they won’t be able to win the Ashes “England without Ben Stokes if he doesn’t come I don’t think they can win the Ashes” he said “I think if it was anyone in the Australian side they wouldn’t be picked You can’t do that these days in public It just didn’t look good and it’s a bad image for the game “I can’t see England winning and it’s too much pressure on (Stuart) Broad and (James) Anderson and they’re getting a bit older and I can’t see them playing five Test matches straight” he added “I think Australia will win 3-1” For all the latest

fact that private mills today are producing almost 30 per cent of Maharashtra’s sugar and that this share could well cross the 50 per cent mark in the next couple of years The marginalisation of cooperatives — which accounted for 95 per cent or more of the state’s sugar output in the early 2000s — parallels a trend seen in dairying as well Till the onset of liberalisation India hardly had any large organised private dairies barring the odd Nestle or Milkfood But now there are 20 or more players handling at least 5 lakh litres each of milk per day In fact the organised private sector’s share in the country’s milk procurement probably exceeds that of cooperatives — something unimaginable during the heyday of Operation Flood The breaching of Maharashtra’s cooperative bastion extending from sugar mills to banks seems only part of a larger process The driving force here is competition unleashed by the de-licensing of the dairy and sugar industries in the 1990s coupled with the gradual withdrawal of state support to cooperatives The new capacities created in the private sector owe largely to the strength of risk capital and entrepreneurial initiative sans subsidies equity participation or loan guarantees from governments Competition has meant that only the better-run cooperatives with professional managements insulated from political pressures — the likes of Amul and the Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative (IFFCO) — have seen their business grow Others have fallen or are increasingly falling by the wayside And that isn’t a bad thing at all Cooperatives ultimately are businesses whose raison d’être lies in servicing the interests of its members whether they are sugarcane growers or dairy farmers So long as they are efficiently processing and marketing the produce supplied by their members to guarantee the best possible price these organisations have relevance even in a modern globalised economy The fact that the world’s largest dairy products exporter New Zealand’s Fonterra is a cooperative just as Amul is probably suggests that agro-processing lends itself naturally to producer-owned as opposed to investor-owned business ventures But as worldwide experience shows these organisations do well only when they are allowed to operate free of political and bureaucratic interference India is perhaps among the few countries where we still have separate departments and registrars for cooperatives Most cooperatives including those in Maharashtra have served mainly as vehicles for dispensing political patronage and siphoning off public funds That is certainly not what they were originally intended to be For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | Updated: August 23 2017
