Of all Indian problems the educational is the most difficult and most tragic”.[v] And when we observe the ideological battles being fought in the education establishment today we notice how this tragedy has escalated almost irreversibly if I may add As a sort of a handmaiden of giving English education to Indians Indology began making steady but massive forays in the realms of higher learning especially when British rule was at its height The biggest “contribution” of Indology over the last two-odd centuries is undoubtedly the Aryan Invasion Theory which may rank as one of the world’s greatest intellectual hoaxes in the service of colonialism Of course in our own time the AIT has been repeatedly shown to be false from multiple angles: archeology genetics Vedic textual evidence and so on Offshoots of Indology include the current attempts to politicise and offer spurious interpretations of the Vedas epics Puranas the Sanskrit language folklore and indeed anything that can be considered “native” and valuable And as is well known the Communists who began gaining prominence in the mid-1930s employed the Western Indology and missionary discourse about India with destructive zeal and consequences Indeed they elevated historical and colonial distortions to an art form as documented copiously by Sita Ram Goel Arun Shourie Ram Swarup Dr K S Lal Shatavadhani Dr Ganesh among other scholars This distortion in the early years after India attained freedom took the two-pronged approach of whitewashing medieval Islamic atrocities on Hindus and portraying Hindus as oppressors and reached the nadir when the Marxists began to deny history most notably during the Babri Masjid affair[vi] Equally on contemporary events Marxists — or their new self-description as liberals — continue to act as apologists for Islamic terrorism Curiously but understandably India is perhaps the only country in the world where the mutually hostile troika of Islamism Christian Evangelism and Marxism are friends with each other because their goals remain the same as we shall see Both the Evangelical West and the Middle East do not make a distinction between the varna of Hindus because the core doctrines of their religions enjoin treating both a Brahmin and a Dalit as a heathen or Kaffir Logically nothing else explains why various Christian denominations continue to invest massive resources in converting say Dalits en masse or use subtle discursive techniques to convert say the mostly-urban “upper castes” Most notably the Christian West never gave up studying India and Hinduism in all its aspects As the concept note of this seminar states scholars like Sheldon Pollock continue to undertake this study for achieving purely political ends When we observe the fairly recent history of say South Korea Philippines and East Timor it becomes clear that India is the last non-Abrahamic bastion to be subverted and bloodlessly conquered by the West The aforementioned countries have now become mere Christian outposts of powerful nations of the West *** [i] PV Kane: History of the Dharmashastras Vol 5 Part 2: Preface by Dr S Radhakrishnan pp 2 [ii] PV Kane: History of the

and the infringer It involves larger issues of public interest The Delhi University photocopier case underlines this The Delhi University copyright case demonstrates that litigations involving issues of intellectual property go beyond mere private adjudications and involve larger issues of access to knowledge and public interest This court case arises from the alleged unauthorised copying of articles and scholarly literature prescribed in courses by the Delhi University Herethe publishers who claim a copyright over this literature have alleged that the concerned photocopy shop made course packs of these copyrighted materials and then sold it to students at a fraction of the costwithout paying them royalties The implications of the case are tremendousgiven that any determination in this case will have a precedential value impacting course packs sold to students all over the country The litigationas originally filed in the Delhi High Courtonly concerned the publishers as the plaintiffs and the Delhi University and photocopy shop owner as the defendants Even though the students who were the primary beneficiaries of such course packs would be directly affected by the result of the litigationthey were not made a party to the caseeither individually or as a group Howeverthis situation was sought to be remedied when an application for impleadment was filed by a group called the Association of Students for the Equitable Access to Knowledge Such an application is essentially a procedural requirementwhich when successful allows the person making it to become a party to the case It is distinct from an application for interventionwhich only allows such persons to make submissions on the applicability of the legal provisionsand not on the facts in the matter The application filed by the students also allows them to ask for independent reliefnot being limited to the ones that have been asked for by the existing plaintiffs and defendants Predictablythe publishers objected to this group of students impleading as parties in what they considered to be an essentially private dispute Howeverthe Delhi HCallowing this group to become a party to the caseheld thatwhen injunctions as claimed by the publishers are granteda determination on public interest also needs to be made Reasoning thatsince this group of students represent the public interest and will be affected by the determination in the casethe court impleaded them as defendants This ruling is significant because it provides recognition that intellectual property litigations are no longer binary duels between the rights-holder and the much-demonised infringer They often involve larger issues of public interest Hereit even appears that there is some relaxation in the legal requirements that permit a third party who agitates such public interest to become a party to the litigation This example needs a wider application and recognition in intellectual property litigation The primary reason for this is that most intellectual property litigation succeeds not through a completion of legal proceedingsbut through an interim orderwhich entitles the plaintiff to prevent the defendant from selling or distributing the goods and services they are allegedly infringing This interim injunction often blocks a cheaper substitute sold by the defendant from the marketthus affecting the wider public Hencefrom the beginningthe public is an invested party Let us also factor in some ancillary concerns as to why a more liberalised system of permitting third parties to engage in intellectual property litigation should be preferred Even though courts in India have been popularstructurally they are inherently undemocratic There is recognition of this in judicial precedentwhich cautions against adjudication occupying the field of the legislature and entering a policy thicket Howeversuch caution is often treated as a legal fiction in practicewhen courts commentnegate and approve government policy Even when such judicial ambition is absentthe line between policy and the interpretation of statute curves violently and is not drawn with a black felt pen Hencewhen such an institution engages in an exercise of examination of public interestit becomes essential for more elements of democratic practice to be infused in it In many waysthe impleader becomes a votary and the petition becomes a ballot Finallyit would be a crass generalisation to suggest that such a system would only be to the benefit of the probable infringer Such impleadments would allow a diversity of views to be presented before the court when it has determined the existence of public interest in an adjudication The writer is a partner at a Delhi-based law firm For all
