see my two part essay from 2015, exactly two years ago:
this was (afaik) the first instance of anyone in india talking explicitly about america's omnipresent #deepstate and its baleful influence on india. i take due pride in that :-)
however, there *was* an earlier use of the term (in 2013) for the congress and its ecosystem, and so here's due credit to centerrightindia. good guys, the folks behind swarajyamag.com. the indian #deepstate is partly a creation of the US #deepstate, as seen in the obvious funding of various anti nationals and think tanks. much like a godman named caldwell invented 'dravidianism' as part of divide-and-rule.
