Causes of the Russian Revolution (1917)

Nihilism, Anarchism and Marxism

Nihilism was a theory of revolution popular among Russian extremists until the fall of the Czarist government (1917); Nihilism stressed the need to destroy existing economic and social institutions. Even though Nihilists were not without constructive programmes, direct action, such as assassination and arson, was their main characteristic. The assassination of Czar Alexander II was one of the results of such terrorist activities.

Anarchism, is the theory that equality and justice are to be sought through the abolition of the state. The main theme of anarchist thought is the belief that society is natural and that people are good but are corrupted by artificial institutions.

Marxism, is the economic and political philosophy started by Karl Marx. It is also known as scientific socialism. Marxism has had a profound impact on contemporary culture; modern communism is based on it.

Jute Industry in India

E-mail Print PDF

The jute industry is concerned mainly with the production of gunny bags or sacks, gunny cloth, coarse carpets, rugs, waterproof covers, tarpaulins and canvas. The first jute mill in India was established at ‘Rishra‘ near Kolkata in 1855 by the English men George Aukland. Before 1947 India enjoyed a monopoly in the production of raw jute as well as manufactured jute. In 1947, the country was partitioned and jute mills remained in India where as the major jute growing areas were partitioned to Bangladesh (East Pakistan). At present the country has self sufficiency in the production of raw Jute. Most of the Jute mills of India are centralised in ‘Hooghly Basin’ of the West Bengal.

In addition to West Bengal, Jute mills are also located in Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Orissa. India exports jute products to Australia, U.K., Thailand, U.S.A., Canada, Argentina, East Africa, New Zealand and Indonesia.
