Breaking India e-Course : REVIEWS

These are some initial reviews of the Breaking India course .

We encourage all potential Intellectual Kshatriyas to enroll and complete this course.


The course on Breaking India was an extremely interesting one. We have heard of the ‘Divide and Rule’ policy of the colonizers. Here is a course to understand how this ‘Divide and Rule’ policy was executed and how hard the outsiders worked to implement it. It took them many decades and probably centuries to take control of India. This course covers an entire body of literature to unravel the inner workings of this effort by the colonizers and the impact it has had on India till the present day. It also talks about the present day activities of the people who adopted the views of the colonizers. 
The ability of one person to study in depth and also cover the vast breadth of the literature produced almost from the advent of the Europeans all the way up to the present day and connecting the dots to explain the metamorphosis of the Indian society is exemplary. Furthermore, to make the entire body of text into small snippets while still maintaining the substance would be a task in itself. It has indeed been a great experience studying the course. 
I must say at this juncture, that I am reminded of a quote by Swami Vivekananda on the state of education during his time. He said, “The child is taken to school, and the first thing he learns is that his father is a fool, the second thing that his grandfather is a lunatic, the third thing that all his teachers are hypocrites, the fourth that all the sacred books are lies! By the time he is sixteen he is a mass of negation, lifeless and boneless. And the result is that fifty years of such education has not produced one original man in the three Presidencies.” Doing this course helped me to strengthen my understanding of the premise of the education system imposed on us in the 19th century, and how it corrupted our thinking, and therefore, why the Great Son of Bharatmata said this. 
Having had a Hindu upbringing at home, the one thing I can say with certainty is that the education I received in school had hardly anything in it that reinforced or buttressed my upbringing at home. If at all, during my growing age, I found ways to criticise our own rituals and practices at home. It was only after reading Swami Vivekananda that I began to respect the rituals and practices at home. Despite that, there did exist a void when it came to having informed civil conversations with people holding views other than mine. This course fills this important void. It educated me by giving a detailed historical account of the way in which the Indian’s mind was captured by the colonizers and what are the underpinnings of the current day’s so called ‘liberal’ approach of many an educated Indian. This course gives significant factual and logical backing to the views I already held. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in getting a holistic view of our journey to the present day India. I look forward to making my own humble contribution in this effort.”

I, first of all, thank Rajiv Malhotra ji for such an eye-opening book in the course form and Indic University for providing a platform to have an access to the course.
I confess with pride that I have this book Breaking India. This book was very helpful when I was writing my research paper on Chinua Achebe’s book Things Fall Apart as the book is having a whole chapter on African culture as well. It does not provide just and idea but this book also helped me frame my research paper in the proper division. However, I was not able to completed the book as my other academic works were going side by side.
When I came to know of this course through Instagram, as I am a follower of Infinity Foundation, I immediately enrolled for this course. I knew that going through this course will help me finish the book alongside. And it really did!
Going through this course was really a journey of learning and knowing the exact happening of the things in the past. The past which we are not taught at school or college level. The past which nobody dares to discuss.  I must admit that this course will help the youth of this country to see how their original roots are destroyed by the “seemingly innocent cunningness” of the westerners. There is a dire need that the courses like this must be introduced in the main stream learning at school and college level. This will help the youth understand how to identify the “Sepoys” of westerners and how not to be like them for the sake of money and fake popularity!
I am eagerly eyeing to see Rajiv Malhotra ji’s book Being Different in the course form as it will be great pleasure to listen from him how rich our tradition is!   
Last but not the least, Breaking India e-course is un-blinkering the blinkered!
