This book is the result of an exhaustive investigation involving several domains both in the US and India. It has been organized into four distinct stories to help the reader understand its depth. Each story is self-contained and could be a book by itself. But each needs to be seen in the context of the others to appreciate the significant message in this book.
These stories are summarized below:
1. Critical Race Theory has taken over the Leftist rhetoric in the West even though it often espouses ideals that are inimical to many core components of classical Liberalism.
2. Harvard University has brought together some leading Blacks and bright young Dalits, and they have adapted Critical Race Theory into Critical Caste Theory by mapping ‘Caste = Race’. The old Afro-Dalit thesis exposed in the book Breaking India: Western Interventions in Dravidian and Dalit Fault Lines, claimed that Dalits are the Blacks of India, and Brahmins are the Whites. This hyphenation has catapulted into the latest sociological thesis that takes divisive identity politics to a new level. The door has flung wide open to bring all American race theories, legal frameworks, activist toolkits, and institutional networks into India. So today, American anti-racism movements are the engines driving India’s social revolution. While it is imperative to solve India’s social injustices, this wholesale transfer is exploiting victimhood politics in India. One can draw parallels with the British ‘civilizing’ mission in India, which basically served as a divide and rule policy to control Indians.
3. Harvard has become the academic nexus for this project. It is developing the atrocity literature to support the use of Critical Caste Theory to dismantle India.
4.Harvard is rapidly exporting this scholarship and activism to India. It has infiltrated Indian industry, government, media, philanthropy, and just about every segment of civil society. Under the umbrella of philanthropy and development, a new generation of elite activists and institutions are being mentored. Each of the four significant stories is of considerable importance by itself. When taken together, they uncover what is nothing short of a major intellectual and social revolution under way. The figure below shows how these stories flow into each other.
