rather it is a trait displayed by the Indian business classes in the distant past too Indian businessmen make little effort to put pressure on government to improve service delivery and governance liquidity in marketsor even the performance of contract a vital issue for any economy Rather than making a push to engage with politics and improve things Indian businessmen choose the easy option either of salting away their black money in Swiss banks or investing it in real estate and locking it away It is eerie to think that a thousand years ago Indian traders similarly put away spare cash in earthen pots and hid it in holes in the ground Indian traders then and now were equally indifferent to matters political regardless of the consequences What couldbe the reason for such indifference Couldit be that they were naturally risk averse Or that they would much prefer to control the king than be the king But we do not find that merchants in India controlled the king’s behaviour The two classes remained on cordial terms but reasonably independent of each other No doubt merchants were involved in local self-government They often held key administrative positions too whether it was Pushyagupta governor of Saurashtra under the Mauryas or Vastupala under the Chalukyas of Gujarat But those positions do not seem to have been used to promote trading interests If at all merchants used these positions it was to enforce trade diktats relevantto group members orto encourage charitable contributions It does not seem as though merchants influenced the king to conquer new markets for the trader If anything the king simply kept out of the way of mercantile cartels The ruler could have had his personal investments and probably did But that only led to him becoming personally rich; he does not seem to have tried to maximise profits or improve communications or access new markets So if the merchant did not control the king what could the reason for an apolitical stance be One answer could be that merchants were unaware that politics could provide serious benefits to trade In essence merchants in India simply seem to have been responding to the inability of kings and the state machinery such as it was to set up any mechanisms to facilitate trade in India If the state machinery cannot facilitate trade then political power becomes meaningless to a trader This is precisely what we find: that kings were simply unable to set up mechanisms to provide good communication protection for trade and enforce contracts One reason the state was unable to do this could be that there was little regular bureaucratic machinery to keep records of taxation and recover taxes The coffers of Indian kings remained abysmally low Setting up a bureaucratic system would have meant salaried staff Such systems are conspicuous by their absence and it is difficult to argue all such records could have been destroyed in multiple invasions After all copper plate inscriptions of land grants given by the king have survived Similarly records of donations made to temples and monasteries were engraved in stone But nowhere do we find any record of taxes imposed by the king or of the taxation structure of ancient India Precepts enumerated by the one text that does discuss taxation and state systems namely Kautilya’s Arthashastra do not seem to have endeared themselves to kings What did exist was the village headman or gramani who we suppose sent in some revenue occasionally But how much and what we do not know Kings in India seem to have run their kingdoms through a series of negotiations with local potentates village communities and urban bodies Revenue flows depended on how negotiations proceeded After conquering a new territory kings often reinstated the old ruler on the basis of promises to send in revenue Once conquered kingdoms stopped sending revenue the ruler would decide whether he would go and try to enforce the diktat once again One economic attribute of Indian society that does bear mention is the enforcement of contracts by precedent and religious law The obligation to repay a debt was simply written into the dharmashastras So it was the local community that was responsible for enforcing contracts Kings recognised this was the case and it is clearly stated in our texts that local customs and laws must be respected above all Such a structure left little place for the king to exercise authority The inability to set up a bureaucratic machinery either to enforce laws or collect taxes had far-reaching consequences It meant that professional standing armies could not be kept It also meant there was no system to enforce contracts not local in nature No record-keeping meant there was no way to track what happened to large sums of money over long periods of time Perhaps this is why India never evolved mechanisms to mobilise the considerable savings of people But we do not seem to learn much from our history The writer is at the department of history Panjab University Chandigarh For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Pune | Published: July 23 2017 5:07 am Lonavala witnessed about 220 mm rainfall in the last 24 hours Top News A heavy downpour that continued for most of Saturday led to the irrigation department increasing the discharge of water from Khadakwasla Dam from 2000 cusecs on Friday evening to 14000 cusecs on Saturday afternoon According to officials in the irrigation department the decision to increase the discharge from the dam was taken because the catchment area of the Khadakwasla Dam continued to receive good rainfall through Friday night E B Shelar an engineer with the state Irrigation department said that considering the rainfall in the catchment area the discharge of water was going to be increased step-by-step “On Friday night the discharge was 2000 cusecs In the morning it was increased to 3500 cusecs As afternoon approached and the downpour continued the discharge was increased to 14000 cusecs through 5500 and 7000 cusecs” said the official He said the department was keeping a close eye on the situation and would take a decision about increasing or reducing the discharge accordingly “In the evening the rainfall abatted We are going to either continue at 14000 cusecs or reduce the discharge” said Shelar Meanwhile tourists rushed to the Khadakwasla Dam to watch the discharge of water;
