'The twenty-first century is India's to lose'

T P Sreenivasan | March 05, 2007 | 10:21 IST

After the wave of nostalgic books on the British Raj in recent years and on Indian philosophy in an earlier era, it is now fashionable to write futuristic books on India. Curiosity about the secret of the phenomenal success of India as an economic power, with all its contradictions and weaknesses, has opened the floodgates of studies and analyses, but the rise of modern India remains 'strange', as the author of the book, In Spite of the Gods, Edward Luce of The Financial Times asserts.
Coming as it does after Thomas Friedman's The World is Flat, it cannot escape comparison with Friedman's brief history of the twenty-first century. 'Friedman's thesis is that the world is flat. My point is that India is not flat', Luce told me in an interview for the Asianet television channel.

The Desi Diaspora - Origin and background
Posted by: asshaukeen on Friday, November 24, 2006 - 09:52 AM , Topic Name: General 
The Desi Diaspora
Indian Migration and Nationalism in the 19th and 20th Centuries

This essay describes the world events and many adversities that shaped overseas Indians' sense of unity and identity over the past two centuries.

Diaspora is migration during the era of nationalism, not just a scattering of peoples but also a politico-emotional gathering in far-off lands under the sign of the nation. Diaspora is an idea that only makes sense in the era of nationalism. Prior to nationalism’s birth in the 19th century, people moved routinely. They traveled from their local places of birth and social sustenance to territories so far that they lost touch with their early homes. Most of these migrants did not think of themselves as part of a coherent diaspora, mainly because they did not see their places of origin as part of a national project. When people of the Indian subcontinent (desis, or those from the desh, homeland), for instance, commonly traveled to Southeast Asia or to Africa as part of the world of the Indian Ocean (that has been called the Afrasian Sea), there is no evidence that they saw themselves as part of a desi diaspora. [note 1] On the contrary, they took with them social practices, habits and materials from their homelands, moved to far-off locales and set to work in the construction of a new ethos, one that was defined in conversation with the materials and ideas that they found in those parts.
