We already know that everything in the world of ideas originated in India.

We invented zero, and the binary system in mathematics. Although the Arabs took credit for that for long, much the same way we copy paste friends’ posts on facebook and assume credit, but the truth finally prevailed. Imagine doing long division with roman numerals, leave alone calculus. We figured out that the universe was not geo centric, and nobody got burnt at the stake for such views. Plastic surgery was practiced by Susruta. Pythagoras copy pasted his theorem from Vedic maths. Democracy was an Indian system long before the Greeks and Romans tried such new fangled experiments.

Not only that, but If we believe our brothers of the Sangh family, nuclear power, fusion bombs, space flight, calculus, genetic engineering, aircrafts were all there in Vedic India. Leaving out a few minor inventions like paper and gunpowder, which we left to the Chinese, all the rest was ours.

But one fact has been missed by all. The one idea that makes the guardians of our heritage along with all their likeminded right wing brothers across the globe see RED, is also a Vedic invention. Not only that, it was propagated in the core manual of our value system.  Yes, Marxism was formulated in the Geeta.

Karl, like his Arab and Greek predecessors, merely stole it from Krishna.

Scandalized? Let us examine the facts.

The basic premise of Marxism is that History is a story of a struggle for the ownership of means of production. The ruling class is unwilling to surrender this ownership without battle. This leads to class war. Now how does the Mahabharata war begin? When Krishna’s peace overtures fail, the war and Geeta happen.  Krishna was trying to persuade Duryodhan to part with some land- the means of production in an agrarian economy. His response was classic. ‘Bina yudh nahi dibo suchagra medini” or, without war I will not part with a particle of land. Isn’t this Class war over means of production? Incidentally, all other Mahabharata wars were fought over cattle, the other means of production o those days.

Next, we see that earlier when the Pandavas were Kings, they lose all their land, cattle and slaves –their property, through treachery and gambling and are left without assets. Or, they become members of the proletariat, owning no means of production except their labour. To drive home the point, they finally take up menial jobs, secretary, cook, dance instructor, coachman, cowherd and housemaid respectively. In other words they were pure prols. And when this proletariat takes on the landed gentry in battle, they win. Isn’t this a clear case of the proletariat winning the class war against the capitalist pigs?

Just in case you are still not sure, look at Krishna’s role. A peacenik, called Ranchoddas by his detractors. He was born in a prison and grew up as a cowherd among similar members of the cattle class. He fought the war, as noncombatant working as a charioteer . Can you get any more prol than that? And he was the key to the victory. And look at his position, at the forefront, right in front of Arjun. Where do you think Karl got the idea of the proletariat being the vanguard of the revolution?

Finally, look how they shared their assets. Feminists please forgive me, but women were still property then. Draupadi was shared equally among them in perfect communist harmony. Marx says, from everyone according to his ability to everyone according to his needs being the mool mantra of the manifesto. Arjun, the hero, the most able, wins her for all of them, and Yudhistir, the wimp, who could never get a date and was the horniest, like all holy and wise men, got her first.

Niskam Karma- working without expectation of rewards. Better definition of Communism anyone?

  1. I knew about Indian contributions to mathematics and science, but thank you so much for expanding my knowledge of how India has contributed to the world of philosophy! I really enjoyed this post. 🙂

  2. I thought you were going to say something about Rosa Luxemburg, who was born as “Geeta’ but was forced to change her name to ‘Rosa’ through the dastardly influence of western culture.

  3. It’s a fact that many of our ideas were borrowed by Arabs and the West to make their own. To think of England took our industrial tools at a time when India GDP in mills was the highest in the world, our machineries were shifted to UK to make their industrial revolution smooth.

  4. Soumya, this was brilliant.

    Did the piece of land which Duryodhan refused to part with, really start that war? I always thought it Draupadi’s attempted disrobing and Lord Krishna’s intervention by giving Draupadi’s sari regenerative cotton molecules.

    One thing is sure. Draupadi would never have gotten a job in Montreal’s east end. 😀

  5. Good one. Krishna was a very shrewd politician and was also able to manipulate the situations to bring out the best.

    Why don’t you also write about Chanakya?

  7. A fresh perspective, indeed. We can also be proud of the fact that we have really taken the lessons of ‘nishkama karma’ to our heart. Our sense of hygiene therefore remains confined to our home and hearth; the civic society has to live through the garbage and the filth because it has to suffer its own karma. Likewise, we are least bothered about our driving courtesies; we drive irrespective of the end result for others. The fact that our souls shall never perish makes us repose our trust in a higher power, when on our roads. The ‘nirbhaya’ case reminds us that we still live with the Draupadi era mindset. The copy cat West will take quite some time to catch up with us, for sure. We should in fact file for IP protection on such approaches to life without further delay. Our forex earnings would sky rocket.
