What Did Kipling Know and When Did He Know It?

He knew more than our entire government when it comes to the Middle-East and Asia. And he knew it before any in our government were born.

Now it is not good for the Christian's health to hustle the Aryan brown,
For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear: "A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East."

-- The Naulahka

Well, Kipling did grow up in India. One assumes he knew what he was on about.
