Indian Revolutionaries in Central Asia

G.L. Dmitriev (Author)

India and Central Asia have an age-old history of economic, political and cultural interaction. Many distinguished natives of Central Asia are known to have lived in India in pursuit of different objectives. Indians, in turn, have also been a permanent element of the demographic scene in Central Asia since time immemorial. As the First World War drew to a close, centres of activities of Indian freedom fighters struggling for independence of their country in foreign lands began to shift from London, San Francisco and Berlin to Stockholm, Kabul and Moscow. The Russian revolution saw them converging upon Tashkent and Central Asia. Indian freedom fighters made Tashkent their abode. There they set up with Soviet help the ‘Indiskii Dom’ and a military school to train Indian Liberation Army to overthrow the British colonial rule. The story of preparation and planning for this military adventure based on hitherto unutilised primary archival source material contained in the various archives of Tashkent and Moscow and the contemporary Central Asian press is the subject matter of this scholarly research treatise of late Dr. G.L. Dmitriev, a Russian historian from Uzbekistan, which is being published posthumously by the Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Institute of Asian Studies, Kolkata.

About the author

G.L. Dmitriev

Dr. G.L. Dmitriev (b. 29 September 1936) took his Ph.D. from the Tashkent State University on Indian Settlers in Central Asian in 19th – early 20th centuries. A renowned cholar in the field of colonial history of Central Asia, and the region’s relations with India against the backdrop of Anglo-Russian rivalry, he had authored more than 50 research papers and articles while working as an Associate Professor, faculty of History, Tashkent State University. Dr. Dmitriev was proficient in several foreign languages, including English and Uzbek and was known for his intimate knowledge of archival records both in India and the then USSR. Unfortunately, the budding career of this historian of great promise was cut short at the age of 51 on 7 March 1987.
