The Calcutta Review May 1953


The knowledge of a lotus by means of the smelling of its fragrance and the knowledge of the distant flame by means of the perception of its rays are instances of inference which presupposes the previous knowledge of the invariable mark as its antecedent condition. [...] If the above sutra represents both the means of perception and the result produced by it then the very constrution of the constituent words of the sutra indicates that there should be perfect co-ordination between the means of proof and its result. [...] Economically it spelled the exploitation of the resources of the country and the virtual slavery of the native population as also the division of the society into two polarized economic extremes with the middle class almost absent. [...] The severance of the political tie did not mean for the indigenous population the severance of the bonds of exploitation and domination. [...] You have to keep them under the thumb.' A philosophy of eduction like the above was evidently the outcome of the lo vly status of the Indian to which he had been reduced by the conquest of the country.
