Better in Wales than India

I’m in High Tory mode these days but I find it absurd to ask for the recovery of Mughal artifacts when both India & Pakistan disrespect that historical period.

When Pakistanis can speak decent Dari and Babri Masjid is rebuilt then we can discuss the colonial encounter and its aftermath. Until then there are much better things to complain about.

  1. Another way to vent out your frustration regarding the exist poll results?

    1. not especially; I’m interested in the mode of governance rather than governance itself.

      It’s interesting to see if Partition had never happened would such a thing be happening now in an India roughly 30~40% Muslim..

      You shouldn’t impute my thoughts..

    ‘Retributive” justice/violence on Hindus of Pak-areas and muslims on Indian-areas. Yugoslavia type situation with tri-furcation of Hindu majority areas, muslim majority areas and language/ethnic politics areas.

  3. Agreed, but your point is relevant for Pakistan; but from a social construct not relevant from an Indian perspective. Why, I list it down:
    1. Mode of spread of Mughal dominance
    2. Harm it caused
    3. On a religious and philosophical base, vis-a-vis weighing it against prevalent existing indic systems.
    4. External projections of affluence. Objects of merely beautiful appearance. Their don’t stick around in India that much. Zero internal significance.
    Recovery doesn’t make sense, but if the Britishers can pay for it then it would be helpful! But I suppose its in the right place, cause 50-100 yrs later in any case we will see a more prominent arab population in UK anyway.
