Vokar Agreement

Two months after the Tomed incident, the Romulan Star Empire forced the Federation to sign the Treaty of Algeron, which prohibited the development of camouflage technology within the Federation in exchange for the agreement of the Star Empire to retreat to its borders and recall all its diplomatic missions and its citizens, to isolate them effectively on the political scene. Sayajirao travelled to England every year to select exceptional young people for his service, and on such a visit he met Sri Aurobindo, 20, whom he immediately offered at Baroda College. Sri Aurobindo returned to India in 1893 to join the Baroda service. Another Bengal gen Syed Mujtaba Ali also taught there. The Tomed incident was a terrible act of terrorism that was recorded by history in early 2311. The story goes that this incident claimed the lives of thousands of people in the Federation when Romulan let Admiral Aventeer Vokar, an Imperial Fleet Romulan extremist, leave his ship, the IRW Tomed, all six of the crew. From there, Vokar and his cohorts laid the groundwork for the Federation`s fox-trot sector. When the spacecraft reached its target, it collapsed with an asteroid base, and its quantum power caused a massive explosion due to the loss of singularity limitation, while the chain field was still active, disrupting space-time throughout the sector and shredding dozens of asteroid bases and at least one spacecraft USS Agamem. Thousands of people died, but the USS Enterprise-B escaped destruction. Vokar seems to be committing this abominable act in the hope of ending a war between the Federation and the Romulan Kingdom of Stars, because of his long-standing Romulan chauvinism and imperialist attitude.

The tomé incident almost hit Vokar`s target before the previously neutral Klingon Empire sided with Federation forces and the Imperial fleet withdrew from the border. Maharaja Sayajirao University in Vadodara began the first dance program in India in 1950. Over the centuries, there have been many alliances and marriages between the kings of Baroda and the princesses. Dancers were often part of the dowry, as dancers, poets and musicians were status symbols for royal courts and maharajas had as many artists as they could afford. In 1880, Maharani Laksmi Bai (Chimnabai I) married by Tanjore Maharaja Sayajirao III. Chimnabai I was well informed in Bharatanatyam and Carnatic Musik, and after the marriage she brought with her a troupe consisting of two dancers, two nattuvanars (Bharatanatyam concert director) and two teachers (Khandwani 2002). Others later followed, including Nattuvanar Appaswamy and his dancer Kantimati, who had studied with Kannusamy and Vadively, two members of the Tanjore Quartet. After Appaswamy`s death in 1939, Kantimati and his son, guru Shri Kubernath Tanjorkar, Baroda left to teach in Lucknow, then worked in the film industry in southern India, until Sayajiro`s successor Pratapsinhrao Gaekwad recalled the family to Baroda in 1949 to teach in the music department of Kalavan Palace, then at Maharaja Sayajirao University (Gaston 1996) : 158-160).
