Alain Danielou and Jawahar Lal Nehru Sanvad
(Bringing the unknown to light)
In our web-site (www.swordoftruth.com) a number of articles have already appeared disclosing a great deal of information on the Nehru dynasty, the same Nehru who has been put on the throne of a special kind of secularism. Just to remind our readers, we might mention here, once again, that the man we call Nehru, was really an imposter; he should have been named Ali, for the simple and valid reason that his real father was NOT Motilal but Mubarak Ali, a well-known Shia munshi practising in the Allahabad court at the time. Mubarak Ali was the owner of the palatial building known as Irshad Manzil at the time which was later purchased by Motilal who had changed the name of the building to Anand Bhavan. It was only a change in the name but the meaning did not alter for what is called Irshad Manzil in Urdu means the same thing as Anand Bhavan in Hindi. Such outward changes have been a subtle characteristic of the Nehrus right from the time of Ganga Dhar, father of Motilal. Ganga Dhar used to be known as a Kashmiri Brahmin but then his official profession was that of a Kotwal, in the Shah's prison in Delhi. Has anyone ever heard of a Brahmin of Kashmir or anywhere else earn his living as a kotwal whose daily duty used to be mutilation of the prisoners and tormenting them, to make them spill the beans?
We would also like to refresh the memory of our readers that the name NEHRU was first used by Motilal, (and not Ganga Dhar) a scholar in Persian and Urdu. He took great pride in the fact of the Delhi Sultan's goodwill toward the Nehrus by virtue of the fact that it was Raj Kaul, an ancestor of the Nehrus, who had betrayed to Aurangzeb the hiding place of Guru Gobind Singh at Nanded, on the banks of the Godavari. It was this betrayal and the ensuing murder of the Guru by two Pathans that made the Delhi sultanate overly indulgent toward the family we call the Nehrus. Raj Kaul was given the gift of a Nahr or nullah. It is from this nahr or nullah the name Nehru came. This nullah is still in Delhi today. It was the lecherous grandson Shahriyar of Aurngazeb who had first requested Raj Kaul to migrate from Kashmir to Delhi so that the Sultan could shower them with munificence of the Mughals as a repayment for the betrayal of the Guru.
Although Jawahar's real father was a Shia man, his mother was a Kashmiri woman of unknown background. For all practical purposes, Jawahar's mother, known as Thusu (aka Swarup Rani) was introduced to Mubarak Ali in the brothel that Motilal used to keep at Mir Ganj, the red-light district of Allahabad (or city of Allah). It was at the same brothel, so the story goes, that Motilal had introduced a very pretty Marathi woman to a Mohammedan man called Shah Nawaz Bhutto. Shah Nawaz had 'nikaahed' this woman after conversion to Islam and the Marathi woman eventually gave birth to a baby who was later known as Zulfikhar Ali Bhutto or Ali Bhutto in Pakistan. Zulfikhar's daughter is the well-known woman-politician Benazir Bhutto.
Be that as it may, that the new-born baby Jawahar was Mubarak Ali's son was known to all or most of Mubarak Ali's friends. After the birth of the baby, Mubarak Ali's close friend, the Nawab of Oudh insisted that the baby be brought to Mubarak Ali's place (the Irshad Manzil to be later named as the Anand Bhavan) for his bringing up. Mubarak Ali was against that. His contention was that in that case, Mubarak Ali, in accordance with the codes of the Sharia' will have to give his bastard son equal shares of all his property vis a vis his legitimate sons. The Nawab was ofcourse unhappy that the son of a Musalman thus risked being raised as a kafir boy. The Nawab then proposed, with the permission of Mubarak Ali, to bring Jawahar, the baby boy, to his harem for upbringing. There were many women there who could suckle the baby. Mubarak agreed and the baby boy was eventually circumcised and reared as a Shia boy in the harem of the Nawab in Oudh. He was educated in the Nawab's palace in Persian (and not Sanskrit) and in Urdu (and not Hindi).
And eventually, Jawahar was sent to Cambridge and in due course the bastard son of Mubarak Ali came back to Mother India as a Cambridge educated barrister of sorts. Now, why I am telling all this to our readers? Only to bring them up to date on Nehru's background. It must be remembered that when Alain Danielou first met Jawaharlal Nehru, he was totally unaware of the background of the Indian prime minister. Like everyone else in India, he too, was influenced to think that Jawahar was a Brahmin, well-versed in Hindi (the national language of India) and ofcourse Sanskrit (the sacred language of the Hindus).
Now let us look at Alain Danielou a little. Those among us who are interested in knowing about the man, may look up his biography from the internet.
In short, the text says: "Alain Danielou traverses the century in a very curious manner. His father was a friend of Aristide Briand (a well-known citizen of France) who was often engaged as a minister, his mother was a founder of religious schools. His own brother will become a cardinal. (Here I must disclose the fact that this cardinal brother of Alain Danielou will eventually die in the home of a prostitute. Quite clearly the first and the last three letters of cardinal, namely car-nal perhaps had determined his inclinations as a living cardinal. Had he not died where he had died, no one would have the clue about the true nature of many such cardinals roaming among the believers, the world over!)
Now, coming back to our Alain Danielou; he was familiar with the milieu of artists and musicians in the Paris of the thirties. He became close to Maurice Sachs, Henri Sauguet, Jean Cocteau, Pierre Gaxotte; he did some painting and even took courses in dancing with Legat; chanting with Panzera; of composition-work with Max d'Olonne. At the end of a trip to Afghanistan, Alain Danielou discovered India for the first time . There he met Rabindranath Tagore and was fascinated by the land that was India. And he decided to settle down in Benares in the year of 1937. There he remained for more than 15 years, adopted Hinduism (he became known as Shiv Sharan and no more as Alain Danielou), studied Hindi, Sanskrit, the Hindu religion and philosophy as well as Indian music (he used to play the Veena), both in theory and practice. His interest was aroused by the symbolism of Hindu architecture and sculpture. He finally returned to Europe in 1958 and became an ardent defender of musical traditions of the Orient. Then he created, in Berlin and in Venice, two institutes endowed with the duty to protect and promote diffusion of these musical traditions. In 1980, he finally retired in Italy, continued to write and also paint pictures. (His abundant writings regrouped fundamental work on music and art, as well as history, human society and religion of India. His autobiography, Le Chemin du Labyrinthe, has just been republished by Le Rocher, 1993).
Now coming back to the final and fatal meeting of Danielou with Nehru, it must be remembered that Nehru had a soft corner for all white men. As the time came for Alain Danielou to finally leave India for Europe, he was summoned by the prime minister for a visit and there is no doubt that Jawahar was very much looking forward to this meeting. Quite possibly, the meeting took place at the Teen Murti House and Nehru was at his amiable best to this Frenchman.
Jawahar had, following his usual habit, kept himself thouroughly informed about Danielou but could not quite understand the man. No doubt, he had been fed the stories from Benares about Danielou but could not quite believe them. He wanted to judge the man himself and when Alain Danielou appeared at Nehru's place, there was surprise waiting for Monsieur Danielou as well. For the first time, Danielou who was by then quite adept in Hindi and Sanskrit himself, discovered that Jawahar, the prime minister of India, knew neither Hindi nor Sanskrit. This information he shared with his visitors later. But what Danielou told his friends, after the meeting with the Indian prime minister was over, was shocking to one and all. He recited the gist of his conversation with Nehru when time came for the adieu.
Nehru was, of course, extremely surprised at the conduct of Danielou and to better understand the Frenchman, Nehru asked Danielou, what aspects of India and Indian culture he liked the most? Naturally, Danielou told Nehru that he was charmed by all aspects of Indian civilization, culture, religion and philosophy, and so on. No doubt, this opinion of Danielou's shocked the pseudo-Brahmin immensely. Nehru nearly lost his power of speech.
Nehru told Danielou that he was very very surprised at Danielou's perception of India and things Indian. Nehru confided to Danielou: "You seem to have liked only those aspects of Indian or Hindu civilization that WE (no doubt Nehru here meant 'the Congress Party' of the day) are bent upon to destroy."
No doubt, since then, we have been saddled with a whole brood of anti-national elements at all levels of the country, thanks to this Shia' man born of a Kashmiri woman in the brothel of Mirganj!
