Wake up Bourbons


 "Rau mein hai rakhsh-e-umr kahaan dekhiye thame
Nai haath baag par hai, na paa hai raqaab mein "

Mirza Ghalib’s sher (couplet) quintessentially reflects the historical situation in India today.
“Rau” means speed, “rakhsh” means horse, “umr” means time (it also means life, but here it means time or era), “baag” means “reins” (of a horse), and “raqaab” means stirrup.
Hence the sher means: “The horse of the times is on the gallop, Let us see where it stops.
The rider has neither the reins in his hands, nor his feet in the stirrup.”
Ghalib was probably writing of the happenings at the time of the Great Mutiny of 1857, when events took place at a galloping pace. But the beauty of Ghalib’s poetry (as also of much of Urdu poetry) is that it is often universal in time and place.
Today in India, the pace of history has speeded up. Events are taking place even more rapidly than earlier, and one wonders where all this will end.
In the media, one scam after another is reported, often involving politicians who swear by the poor and disadvantaged sections of society, and bureaucrats, one of whom was found with Rs. 100 crore in cash in his car,  jewelry worth Rs. 100 crore, and total assets alleged to be of about Rs. 1000 crore..
Talleyrand said of the Bourbons that they “saw nothing, remembered nothing, and forgot nothing.” Most Indian politicians and bureaucrats today remind one of the Bourbons. They do not see the public anger rising against them and reaching boiling point, like that shown in the scene in Dickens' 'A Tale of Two Cities ' where a wine cask breaks up on  a street in Paris, and the people lap up the wine, while one of them writes the word ' Blood ' on a wall. They do not remember the fate of the Bourbons, the Hapsburgs, and the Romanovs (if they have even heard of them). And they do not forget their power and pelf, thinking these will continue forever, as did the ill-fated dynasties mentioned above.
The decisive factor is the economy.
In recent months there has been a manufacturing decline in India, and export-oriented industries have been particularly hard hit because of the recession in western countries.
India’s relative stability was based on the 15-20 per cent middle class, which, considering our huge population of 1,250 million, would be about 200-250 million. This provided a market for our goods and services. This middle class is fast losing its purchasing power due to skyrocketing prices, and this in turn is fast eroding India’s stability, as can be seen from the recent incidents.

Massive poverty, huge unemployment, skyrocketing prices, absence of health care for the poor people, farmers’ suicides, child malnutrition, etc, are all an explosive mixture. If the Bourbons do not wake up now (of which I see little likelihood at present), a prolonged period of chaos and anarchy seems inevitable in India in the near, not distant, future.
