Snakes in the Ganga unveils uncomfortable truths concerning India's vulnerabilities: • Intense warfare against India's integrity is the work of a well-orchestrated global machinery driven by a new ideology. • Marxism has been reincarnated as Critical Race Theory in US academia and serves as the framework to address America's racism. This has been recklessly mapped on to India:Caste is equated with Race. Marginalized communities of India are considered as Blacks and Brahmins as the Whites of India. Groups claiming grievances (like Muslims and LGBTQ+) are artificially clubbed together. • Popularly called the Woke movement, the mission is to dismantle Indian civilization and heritage by waging an uncompromising war against India's government, educational institutions, culture, industry, and society. • Harvard University is Ground Zero of these social theories developed in collaboration with Indian scholars, activists, journalists and artists. This represents a clear and present danger to India's sovereignty and national security. • Several Indian elites are hoisting Harvard as the vishwa guru with their money and family names. Some private universities within India are importing Wokeism that has serious repercussions for India's stability. • Indian corporates are bringing the latest Western rubric of Environmental, Social, and Governance ratings into their workplace. This is aligned with the global Social Justice movement. • China has exploited this latest infrastructure as a passage to India. • Wokeism has penetrated some of the Indian government's policies. For instance, the National Education Policy 2020 is propagating Harvard's liberal arts. • An entire ecosystem of ideologies, institutions and young leaders is emerging for the recolonization of India.
