While in jail he used to send his short stories to well known writer, Jainendra. Since his name could not be used, Jainendra passed on his articles to Munshi Premchand saying that the writer's name was ‘Agyeya' meaning unknowable.

In 1947, 300 years after British colonisation began, Cyril John Radcliffe was assigned the task of drawing the borders to define two newly independent nation states: India and Pakistan. On 9 August 1947, he submitted the partition, separating the two nations based upon religious majorities. Put into effect on 17 August 1947 – two days after India became independent of the United Kingdom and three days after Pakistan's independence – pandemonium broke out as millions soon found themselves on the “wrong side” of the new border, creating a lasting legacy of displacement, division and bloodshed. My guest for this episode of What Matters Today is Gopalan Balachandran, Co-Director of the Albert Hirschman Centre On Democracy and Professor of International History and Politics at the Geneva Graduate Institute.

The Partition Hypothesis: The Matrix-like Safeguards Behind the Fermi Paradox

Point of Convergence

Play Episode Listen Later Sep 18, 2022 37:33 Very Popular


Ever since human beings have had some sense of the immensity of the Cosmos, when we look up to the starry array above their heads in the dark of night, an enduring question emerges: How many other planets with sophisticated civilizations like ours are out there? With a thousand pinpricks of light coming through that black tapestry of the night sky, many of us logically assume the cosmos is likely teeming with life. Of course, that initial impression, based more on a hunch perhaps than solid data, has only grown stronger and stronger as our understanding of the immense scope of the universe has come more fully into view. Dazzling as the earth, our home planet is, it is but one rock circling one star in one star system amongst hundreds of billions in our Milky Way galaxy alone. And likewise that galaxy is merely one of trillions scattered across the vast expanse of the cosmos. The so-called Fermi paradox arises from the apparent conflict between the lack of clear, obvious signs of extraterrestrial life despite consistently high estimates for their probable existence. This paradox is named after Italian-American physicist Enrico Fermi, who, as the story goes, in the midst of a casual conversation with fellow physicists Edward Teller, Herbert York, and Emil Konopinski, in almost the precise middle of the 20th century, exclaimed, when thinking on these matters: “But where is everybody?”, or something to that effect. It is indeed a perplexing matter. As time has gone on, we've gathered more and more evidence not just about how gargantuan the cosmos actually is, but how, as Dr. Ian Malcolm, a character in the original Jurassic Park movie played by Jeff Goldblum famously says, “Life finds a way”. In other words, life seems to spring up even in the most inhabitable of environments. That being the case, and considering how many goldilox-like planets must exist, even amongst the many planets that are perhaps not suited for life, where are all those civilizations? Why are we not finding clear evidence of their existence? Of course the Fermi paradox makes certain assumptions, firstly about the nature and ultimate reality of the spacetime construct we find ourselves seemingly firmly embedded within. But also about the notion that civilizations that are perhaps out there – and perhaps much more advanced than we earthlings, would not choose to interfere with our ability to perceive their existence. When you really think about it: this is a rather strange assumption to make. After all, we manipulate our environment almost the moment we gain the ability to. Why would this not occur with interstellar civilizations that have mastered interstellar and perhaps even intergalactic travel in the same way we've mastered intercontinental travel? And of course, last but certainly not least, there is the clear evidence, gathered not just over the course of what you might call the modern UFO era, reaching back to the early to mid 20th century, but even to our distant religious lore and early Creation myths, suggesting these Others have been here for a very long time, perhaps even predating us as beings walking this blue pearl of a planet. So, all this being the case, what does this mean? Why are we simultaneously being visited and interacted with by these various non-conventionally human others, while also being presented with a visible universe that appears starkly devoid of life? These are the compelling and head-scratching matters that we'll endeavor to make sense of in this, the 71st episode of the Point of Convergence podcast. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/pointofconvergence/support

The Non-Prophets, Episode 21.37 airing Sunday, 09-11-2022 featuring Jason Sherwood, Pseudonymousaurus Rex, Teo el Ateo and Kelley Laughlin.What an interesting show from the past we have for you this week. You see we sometimes record an episode and keep it in the vault on the off chance that something happens and we cannot get a show out to you. Now not to worry nothing happened this week, but we do want to air out the vault just to keep things somewhat fresh. So that is what we got for you this week. From the way back in the day of June we present to you R Kelley Laughlin, Mateo Montero, Pseudonymousaurus Rex, and I am conducting! So let's get into it!First up, we talk about New York passing a secular addiction recovery bill. This bill allows tax payer money to go toward secular recovery options as well as the old school and hidden Christian indoc… I mean program of Alcoholics Anonymous! To be clear we don't just bash on AA and Kelley has a few things to say on it, but we still see this as a Step In The Right Direction. No Cynthia though. I wonder if anyone is going to step up and sing it for her?Continuing on the mental health care note, we look into some of the religious barriers for people getting help. These barriers might be stigma or as means of a religion to control its people. Seriously though if you need help you should get help. If anyone is telling you that you don't and you still are feeling it. GET HELP!Next up, let's all take a trip over to India. Well maybe not all of us. Actually, it might be getting concerning for any of us. You see a historically secular government is taking a drastic turn toward Hinduism. Right now they seem to be focusing all their xenophobia on Muslims who stayed on the India side after the Partition. However, they are also trying to take rights away from anyone who isn't Hindu. So at least the United States isn't the only one going to a Theocracy?Lastly, do we have some new evidence that proves old evolution ideas? Well, maybe. There was a discredited idea from the 1800s that is getting a new lease thanks to some new discoveries. They haven't been fully proven yet so we are still going on the tried and true Theory of Evolution by means of Natural Selection. We discuss a bit about what that means and then congratulate science in making better science. We also show that The Bible still fails to disprove science. Don't worry theists, I am sure someone will find a challenge to evolution in the Bible.

Romy was drawn to Amrita's fierce independent spirit and began to learn about her importance as a Panjabi writer whose work was heavily influenced by Partition, and in particular the experiences of women during this period. Romy's joined by the poet Rupinder Kaur who performs extracts of Amrita's work and says her work and influence still resonates today. Amrita Pritam's own voice is heard, speaking about the train journey she took after Partition when she and her family fled to safety in Delhi, inspiring her most famous work 'Ajj Akhan Waris Shah Nu'.

The third installment in Naomi and Tim's series on the War of Independence discusses a landmark of 20th century Irish history: the partition of the island. Tim digs into the backstory to reveal how once again, an unhappy chapter of Irish history is linked to Winston Churchill. This episode lays out the thinking at the time and how the so-called 'Irish question' was shaped through parliamentary debates in Westminster, as a team of officials in London drew out the boundaries of the two new jurisdictions while Ireland was at war. We discuss how unionist movements evolved in relation to the question of Home Rule and partition, and the sense of betrayal particularly of southern unionists that led Dublin-born unionist leader Edward Carson to declare: "What a fool I was! I was only a puppet, and so was Ulster, and so was Ireland, in the political game that was to get the Conservative Party into power". University College Dublin historian Dr Conor Mulvagh joins us again to lay out how the pro-independence forces in the south contended with the new entity that was created on the north east of the island, and the violence unleashed as whipped-up unionist crowds drove Catholics out of their homes and jobs in the north. A bonus episode is available for Patreon supporters in which Naomi and Tim debrief from this episode and discuss what stood out to them - including the striking parallels with present day politics in a reckless Conservative Party wreaking havoc towards the island of Ireland.

Combining archival research with ethnographic fieldwork, Aniket De's book The Boundary of Laughter: Popular Performances Across Borders in South Asia (Oxford UP, 2022) explores how spaces of popular performance have changed with the emergence of national borders in modern South Asia. The author traces the making of the popular theater form called Gambhira by Hindu and Muslim peasants and laborers in colonial Bengal, and explores the fate of the tradition after the Partition of the region in 1947. Drawing on a rich and hitherto unexplored archive of Gambhira songs and plays, this book provides a new approach for studying popular performances as shared spaces-that can accommodate peoples across national and religious boundaries.

75 years ago this week, British colonial rule ended in India. Two new nations emerged - Muslim-majority Pakistan and Hindu-majority India. But that freedom was followed by chaos and bloodshed. Partition triggered a mass migration across a shared border, as millions of Muslims fled to Pakistan and millions of Hindus and Sikhs fled to India. Violent attacks happened on both sides of the border. An estimated one million people were killed. Pakistan and India still grapple with the repercussions of Partition and the effects are still felt today. NPR's Lauren Frayer tells us about an effort to heal some of those old wounds by reconnecting elderly survivors of Partition with the homes and villages they haven't seen in decades.
