Mishra is merely a brown sepoy earning his keep. He is the Indian version of the House Negro.
Goras have a strategy of identifying opportunist non-Whites eager to raise their station in life through Western patronage. They then raise the profile of such people (coolie-wannabes) by handing out different awards and gradually position them against native culture and nationalists. (Same trick they played with Arundhati Roy and Arvind Adiga.)
These sepoys then become inerpreters of non-White cultures to Goras. This is the game being played in all countries in Asia and Africa. The solution for non-Whites is to start flushing Western awards down the toilet and openly ridicule the sepoys.
