ANSWERS ALL COMMUNICATIONS
WRITTEN IN CRITICISM OF AR-
TICLES ON INDIA.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
With interest, I have read all the
communications published in The
Daily, concerning India and criticis-
ing my articles. I now come forth to
answer those three communications in
one and I earnestly hope that you will
publish the same in your paper.
At the very outset I must say that I
have written my articles neither being
"prompted by personal bias and mal-
ice" against anyone as the Cyprus
islander says nor have I "intentionally
suppressed numerous relevant facts"
as Professor Cross believes. I start-
ed my series with pure intention of
disseminating first hand knowledge to
the people of this University, not be-
cause I wanted to carry out a pro-
paganda, but because it was my turn
to write on my land of birth, just as
other's did on theirs.
If I had an intention f carrying
out such a propaganda against the
British I would have done so right at
the beginning of the war. But my per-
sonal opinions are well known to
those on the campus and in the city
with whom I have had conferences.
And those are not hidden either. On
page four, column five of The Mich-
igan Daily, Dec. 1, 1915, one of my
interviews 'is published under, the
heading, "IndiadNot Revolting," and
those that would read it undoubtedly
know to what side I belong and why.
This is not all. Being one of the 315
millions of Indians, who are behind
the British to a man in the present
world crisis I offered my services in
1914 to the British military medical
corps and also to the Red Cross, both
through the Canadian and English of-
ters of India. Such is their promise
and they have kept it to their word.
Would Discuss "Suttee"
As for "Suttee," I would have writ-
ten of it in the article on woman's
position. As for the abolition of Jug-
gernat Car, I take the liberty of an-
nouncing that Mrs. Barbour has made
an absolutely false statement in that
First of all as said the government
does not interfere in the religious mat-
ters and secondly, I, together with
my seven other friends, was a pilgrim
to the Car in 1913. Besides this, re-
ports about cholera which prevailed
during the festival of that Car have
been published in the'tri-monthly "In-,
dian Medical Research," which can be
had in the medical library.
Now to answer Mr. Bairam's com-
munication. In the whole length and
breadth of my articles not a word has
been said about the British empire.
And still Mr. Bairam says that "un-
founded charges against the British
empire" are being made in my articles.
I have spoken about the British in
India and India alone.
Empire More Than India
The British in India do not form the
whole British empire, which is so vast
that the sun never sets on it. So, there
are no charges and there is no "un-
foundation" to it.
In the same manner when I speak of
England's rule in my articles, I strict-
ly stick to India and no other part of
the empire. Cyprus, New Zealand, or
Egypt are outside of the question,
when we discuss the famines in In-
The policy that is applicable to one
country cannot very well be applied
to another in the case of government.
Possibly, Cyprus is happy and Egpyt
is prosperous, that does not mean that
India is not poor under the present

has spent more than 30 or 50 mil-
lion dollars 'on famine relief work in
every instance where devastation has
been wrought. But what is the use?
In medical terms, "prevention is bet-
ter than cure," is not brought in prac-
tice, so, naturally, the famines con-
tinue and the money of these famine
stricken people is given to them in
charity. Why not uproot all the caus-

In closing let: me say that the pres-
ent deplorable condition in regard to
famine, poverty, society, and education
will be changed at once if England
gives self government to India as her
people have demaned and treat that
country like Canada, Australia, and
other colonies. ' Self government will
absorb all the grievances.
Books in Library
There are many things that I could
write to prove that all I said regard-
ing the famines is beyond doubt cor-
rect but Imust bring out my points in
a limited space. Also, I do not like
to monopolize the student paper only
on the India question.
For this purpose, I have just com-
pleted an arrangement with the lib-
rarian, Mt. Bishop, who very kindly
has kept the books on India, which I
referred to in my articles, on a sepa-
rate shelf near the circulating desk in
the main library and those that are
interested and wish to find the truth
about India should spend at least some
time in collecting the facts. ,
The publication of my remaining ar-
ticles will be held until my readers
are, convinced of their authenticity.
