huddled in a trench wearing their trademark turbans and holding their weapons close These could easily be photos from the Punjabi Mussalman company of 57th Wilde’s Rifles (FF) from anywhere in India from the early 19th century However they are rare photographs that document the first European sojourn of the Indian soldier in the early 20th century India — a British colony then — with its sizeable trained military force had dispatched two infantry divisions and a cavalry brigade to the Western Front to halt the German juggernaut Belgium a neutral state according to the Treaty of London (1839) was invaded by Germany in 1914 An exhibition showcasing India’s contribution during that time — “India in Flander Fields” — which was inaugurated by King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium on their recent State visit to India is currently on display at the Capital’s National Museum A coffee table book by the same name was also unveiled at the Capital’s Maneckshaw Centre last week The exhibition has been jointly curated by Indian military historian Rana Chhina of United Services Institution of India (USI) and Belgian historian Dominiek Dendooven who works at In Flanders Fields Museum (Ypres) “We at the USI had been involved with the centenary celebrations of India’s involvement in the first World War (WWI) which changed the course of world history This is an offshoot of that in a bilateral way This is our way of remembering and acknowledging the Indian soldiers who had died fighting for Belgium’s freedom a century ago which not many people know about” says Rana Chhina Chhina and fellow curator Dendooven had been working on this exhibition and book for about four years The exhibition has illustrations artist impressions photographs maps artefacts — weapons and uniforms along with letters and postcards All share the story of the Indian soldier who at that time was ill-prepared for Europe Both culturally and geographically “They came in late 1914 still wearing their cotton summer uniforms and were not prepared or equipped to fight against a behemoth continental Army A contemporary print from 1915 depicting a Belgian soldier supporting an injured Indian sepoy while a French west-African tirailleurs senegalais ((Senegalese rifleman) walks alongside Also the European winter was a first for them Frostbite and exposure to the elements added to their woes” says Dendooven who has worked extensively on the contribution of the non-European soldiers in WWI “We had photographs of Indian soldiers and Chinese labourers There was information but nothing had been written about them I wanted to know why was there an influx of people from other parts of the world in this small area of Belgium” says Dendooven on the need to document foreign soldiers during WWI Since information was in abundance collecting historical material was not that difficult There were written records about the soldiers “This was recorded history in India and Belgium Also there was a sensor who read every bit of correspondence that came in and went out There are records of soldiers writing home to small obscure villages and recounting their European experiences The Indian Army and the USI had records of them” says Chhina It’s interesting to note that how both sides — Indian and Belgian — were in equal shock “No Belgian had seen an Indian before and no Indian had ever seen a non-elite white person earlier They were curious about each other’s cultures Also they stayed with ordinary folk in Belgium and realised that not all white people are as brutal as the British were to Indians in India” adds Dendooven The European experience also opened the Indian soldier’s minds to educating women after seeing the liberation and sense of equanimity that women enjoyed in Belgium “Many Indian soldiers wrote back and sent money to help build schools for girls They realisarted that the only way forward was through education” adds Chhina “We need to understand that WWI set things in motion which ultimately led to the demise of the British Raj Many times we focus only on the popular political reasoning and ignore the other subaltern narratives Look at the political and social impact it must have had where the Indian soldier is not fighting against but alongside other European soldiers” asserts Chhina The sentiment is shared by Dendooven “Here is the Indian soldier fighting for the Independence of another country but what about their own Independence And after the WWI they come back and then Jallianwala Bagh happened There was this huge sense of betrayal wherein after having laid down their lives for the British Empire this is what they got That’s when the narrative changed to poorna Swaraj” concludes Dendooven The exhibition is
