What I noticed in Arnold's paper was that although there was a reference to indigenous medicine being Ayurveda and Unani, there is a lot of reference to Hindu Festivals/Fairs and the idea of Goddesses for small-pox and measles but there is no specific mention how the various other indigenous communities...did the various Muslim communities for example, also react in the same way to these diseases? Did other communities too resent interference by the Colonial Powers? The reason I ask this is that the Muslim Julhai's rioted in Bombay against Government heavy-handedness in the first few years of the Plague in Bombay?

Arnold was primarily concerned about political implications and cultural interplay. However, epidemiological,ecological and economic questions about cholera's high tide and recession during British rule STILL REMAINS !
