Dr.B.P.Mahesh Chandra Guru

The greatness of Tipu’s policy rests on his firm devotion to his cause. He tried his utmost to accomplish his object by mustering up all his resources, by negotiating alliances with his neighbors and by seeking help from far-off countries. Tipu was an exceptionally talented and capable statesmen but he was unfortunately twisted by the cruelty of the pro-British. Tipu never wanted to make war on the bulk of his own subjects but he was always driven by his consciousness to improve the conditions of his people and enrich the state’s exchequer. Tipu was a ruler with a difference as compared to other rulers in South India. Tipu had ushered in a new era of state capitalism to prevent any kind of privatization of economy and oppression of people much before Karl Marx. Tipu is perhaps the only native ruler who had resisted the British colonialism. An analysis of his reforms would indicate that he was revolutionary in thought and far ahead of his times as a statesman.

KEYWORDS: state’s exchequer, statesman, Karl Marx, political alliance
