rough estimates from google.

university endowments market value- 850 billion $
govt university funding - 120 billion $
private philanthropy - 500 billion $
total revenue of degree granting institutions - 1 trillion $


the system is well funded, what i wanted to find out is how much India bashing wallahs are making out of this. i am just hoping, they are not selling India for cheap in millions, it better be in billions :troll:

Virtually impossible to find out budgets for India related departments as we'd be clubbed into South Asian Studies. Of course we'd form most of the subject for those studies. Then there are grants awarded on specific subjects. It's an ecosystem & a flourishing one at that in its own right

yup, this is why i was asking our north american members rough estimates for the numbers i has posted in that post.

simply put, ideology alone cannot explain for the continuous stream of hate propaganda spanning decades, there must an mini-industry with good numbers backing it.

We can't de-dollarize
The Numba Wan candidate for de-dollarization is pic-related's currency

View attachment 254379

Gold or BRICS gold-backed currency is just a fantasy
India will be the one preventing sudden collapse of Amreeki currency by buying Daalar bonds. Even Japanese can't afford to buy more. Japan and China will be selling for different reasons.

when will India ever learn nobody is ever going to reward it for being a good boy and
playing by the rules?
The problem is: no country thinks that India is a "good boy and playing by the rules". (Don't know who define the "good boy").

Certainly, you are not the good boy in the eyes of Americans, and you don't play by the American rules.

What about in the eyes of the world, and positively in most of the developing world? The point is that India is not propping up dictators, not bribing corrupt selfish third world leaders, not prolifering WMD to irresponsible countries, not trying to control large resources of the planet, and all the while being at the least a functioning democracy and pluralist society.

True, little of this resonates with the US deep state, or major portions of it. But they know it in their heart of hearts, which makes them that much more reprehensible.

@Blademaster @Varoon2 or anyone familiar with U.S university systems.

is it possible to roughly calculate value of economy of anti-India academic propaganda in terms of salaries , departmental funding , tution fees etc, academics promoting anti-India themes would be drawing from murican universities?

say there are 300 such academics + 300 teaching assistants + departmental grants + tution fees of 5000 students , or whatever might be the appropriate proportion might be, how much would this economy be?

assuming berkely, UCLA, stanford, harvard, georgetown etc will have financial details publicly available, for estimates.
Someone who would probably come closest to answering that question- and he would certainly put in a good effort to answer it- is Infinity foundation's Rajiv Malhotra.

Jesuit Father Frazer Mascarenhas, former principal of St. Xavier’s College, told Crux the recent report of the U.S. State Department on the situation of human rights in India is “a welcome move to highlight before the international community the declining state of law and order and the rampant abuse of human rights in India.”

Jesuits are commies and provide cover for Naxals and similar comrades in India.

During Indian electioneering, the diplomatic relationship between India and America has sunk low. President Biden from no where called India as Xenophobic country, forgetting that U.S. is worst in this regard. It has erected walls to exclude South Americans from crossing over to U.S.

Biden’s State Department initiated a media campaign against India about Muslim rights being cut via CAA in India. They have not got a clue what CAA is all about. It is to keep outsiders like as in US, out of citizenship rights.

The U.S. media hugely patronized opposition politicians mostly with ill repute giving them space to abuse Modi/BJP abroad (Kejriwal). Since they figured that only infinitesimal number of Indians are aware of anti Indian propaganda abroad, they activated a number of their easy high end Indian journalists of Lutyens Gang or Khan Market Gang to write anti Modi and Anti India propaganda in Indian Newspapers or have them on electronic media to repeatedly say that Modi popularity on the decline (Karan Thapar). The whole idea was to create a doubt in voting public’s mind about Modi. Whether these journalists were paid or not, we have no idea.



US wished it that their behind the scene activities work in such a way that Election Commission could not respond and anti Modi, anti India propaganda to continue.

Nobody in India has responded to all the US provocations. Their time is coming a bitter fight is coming in US in the presidential race. Biden may be unseated. Even if Biden is unseated, the bitterness created by a bunch of fools will take years to heel.

US and India are heading towards a diplomatic tussel

Indian elections are over. Results come in a day or two. That very undemocratic episode of prosecuting and convicting the former president Trump on flimsy grounds just to keep him out of Presidential elections race is a watershed moment in American politics. It is a low point.

Who wants to keep an old, infirm and forgetful personality of Biden in office for 4 more years. It is a travesty of democratic principles from any standards.

It is all US Democratic party’s doing. They know that they have no chance of staying in power if Republicans put up Trump as candidate. They wished to get him out by hook or by crook.

US ambassador to India Garcetti is also a Democrat. He has been making a few unfriendly statements/Advice to India. I believe he should pack his bag and leave as Modi is back in power with a bang and US has not given itself a good account of itself by prosecuting Trump on flimsy charges.

There should be a new beginning.
