She objected to the Akademi’s silence over the killing of writers Not to the BJP Smart BJP strategy would have agreed that they were also against intolerance That would have taken the wind out of the bag But the intolerance/tolerance ball was set rolling when any mention of freedom of speech or an intolerant atmosphere was translated to anti-Modi lack of patriotism and met with verbal lynching In truth it has been the Congress party that has been the most intolerant and vindictive of dissent and criticism Starting with Jawaharlal Nehru’s adding restrictions to freedom of speech (Article 19a) that included obscenity vulgarity etc and banning of books films and even people It has the longest list of banned books and films The now repealed Section 66A that threw people in jail for Facebook

towards more tolerance The worst is that anyone wanting a more tolerant and pluralistic India is greeted with hooliganism and branding as someone who does not love his/her country The argument in the

decision Howeverseveral political partiesboth from the opposition benches and some on the treasury side were opposed to the proposal Parliamentary proceedings were repeatedly disrupted as MPs demanded

on December 13 This bill proposes to create a separate bench in the high courts to hear commercial disputes where the value under consideration is above Rs 5 crore The bill was not referred to the standing committee and was passed by the Lok Sabha in December 2009 Howeverat that timethe Rajya Sabha decided to form a select committee to examine the bill That committee made several recommendations including reducing the cut-off value to Rs 1 crore During the debate in the Rajya Sabha this sessionseveral MPs suggested changes and the law ministerin his replysaid that the government would prefer to defer the consideration of the billas it would like to bring in fresh amendments Soon after the above discussionthe Rajya Sabha was slated to discuss the copyright amendment bill Even as the HRD Minister Kapil Sibal rose to propose the considerationthere were objections from several members They contended that the minister had a conflict of interest as his son was representing some music companies that would be affected by the bill The chair ruled that the Rajya Sabha rules did not prohibit the minister from participating in the debate; howeverthe discussion

unbeaten 126-run partnership as Australia romped to a nine-wicket win in a one-day international against Ireland at Willowmoore Park on Tuesday Khawaja made 82 not out and Smith an unbeaten 59 as Australia chased down a modest target of 199 with 195 overs to spare It was a second heavy defeat in a row for Ireland who lost by 206 runs against South Africa at the same venue on Sunday but set the scene for what Smith expects to be a tough five-match one-day series between South Africa and Australia starting at Centurion on Friday Australia’s batsman Usman Khawaja plays a shot during Australia against Ireland AFP Ireland let slip a promising start collapsing from 121 for two in the 24th over to 198 all out The solid foundation laid by William Porterfield (24) Paul Stirling (30) and John Anderson (39) was destroyed when they lost three wickets for two runs in the space of seven balls Anderson was leg before wicket to Scott Boland before new cap Daniel Worrall claimed his first international wicket when he had Gary Wilson caught behind Worrall appealed unsuccessfully for leg before wicket when his next ball struck Sean Terry on the pad But a careless Terry did not get back into his crease and the ball deflected to Smith whose throw from slip ran out the new batsman "We lost our way there" said Ireland captain Porterfield "It was difficult to come back from that" Leg-spinner Adam Zampa was Australia’s most successful bowler taking three for 37 He made good use of his variations taking two wickets with googlies and one with a flipper Zampa apart a largely inexperienced Australian bowling attack looked in need of more work ahead of the series against South Africa They sent down 13 wides costing a total of 19 runs "It was a pretty good performance in the end" said Smith "We need to work on the way we started with the ball but we came back nicely to bowl them out We gave them too many freebies and we can’t afford to do that against South Africa" David Warner got Australia off to a rapid start dominating a 73-run first wicket stand with fellow left-hander Khawaja Warner hit 48 off 30 balls with five fours and two sixes before pushing back a slower ball from Tim Murtagh to be caught and bowled Murtagh was the only Ireland bowler able to impose a measure of control over the batsmen taking one for 21 in six overs Khawaja was dropped twice on eight and 73 both times in the deep by Peter Chase off Barry McCarthy but played a stylish 77-ball innings hitting eight fours and two sixes Smith returning to action after being rested during a recent

Written by Yoginder K Alagh | Published: June 6 2014 12:00 am The decline in the investment rate in India started two years ago (Source: Reuters) Related News We need to aim to get to a high growth path again To use an expression made famous by Queen Elizabeth the last two years were both anni horribili The average annual growth rate of the economy was 749 per cent between 2004 and 2012-13 — the UPA years But it fell from 79 per cent between 2004 and 2008 to 68 per cent between 2009 and 2014 The last two years were really bad at 465 per cent The manufacturing sector grew 834 per cent annually in the period 2004 to 2012-13 but 928 per cent in the period 2004 to 2008 This dropped to 718 per cent between 2008-09 and 2012-13 Again the last two years were terrible at around 4 per cent and then below zero per cent The official line was that we are now a globalised economy and can’t do much about the rest of the world But many other countries have done well — not just China but also countries like Indonesia Turkey and Nigeria The decline in the investment rate in India started two years ago Public investment fell first and as infrastructure spending went down private investment also fell The UPA’s economists kept giving lectures about raising efficiency They wondered if the investment rate is 32 per cent why was the growth rate so low (C Rangarajan ) They conjectured that the growth rate would go up next month/ quarter (Montek Singh Ahluwalia) Raghuram Rajan had another tack According to his economics the growth rate is given and all that you can do is determine prices by changing the interest rate Whenever some green shoots of recovery were visible the monetary policy killed them In August last year China effected a stimulus package by investing in infrastructure There were howls of protest from international financial institutions But China politely stuck to its policy and clocked 7 per cent growth I have been arguing for an investment stimulus along with a resource-raising effort It would not have determined aggregate demand but would have diverted demand to sectors linked to infrastructure like capital goods cement and steel The private sector would have taken care of consumer demand thanks to the good crop in the offing But nothing happened The new government must focus on infrastructure investment and give the economy a stimulus It must simultaneously raise resources and cut government consumption expenditure to finance this stimulus The need for a public investment stimulus in infrastructure is greatest in what I have described in my book The Future of Indian Agriculture as “Census towns” There are about 4000 such towns Going by criteria laid down by the Census they are towns but the government does not classify them as such because of the politics of keeping them under panchayats Since they are not governed by municipal bodies they are not eligible for urban infrastructure These towns are crying out for roads markets first-stage agro-processing infrastructure storage facilities and financial intermediation for small farmers and traders But they remain “villages” A large infrastructure package for them is the need of the hour The decline in agricultural growth from 4 per cent per year between 2004 and 2008 to 328 per cent between 2009 and 2012 should warn policy planners Infrastructure is the name of the game when the inflation rate is largely in food and energy This is the area to concentrate on The quicker we cross the 34 per cent investment rate mark the better it will be for us Another area that needs significant attention is skills development For this the private sector NGOs cooperatives industry associations and others must be roped in in a big way Every skill development programme must have a certification process preferably overseen by the local chamber of commerce so that trainees can get jobs and the country’s skill deficit can be removed The water energy and communication sectors have also been starved of investment India has no right to call itself a powerful emerging economy if it does not invest in these sectors and liberalise them so that private players can also participate in

Sumegha Gulati is no more I knew we all knew that she would recover and be the same firebrand journalist that she has always been But fate had other plans In April 2013 it was my last Class XII board examination and it was her weekly off at The Indian Express I decided to skip the crucial high school graduation party just to meet her for the very first time We had an instant connection She narrated stories from her internships at The Hindustan Times and Greater Kashmir I was thrilled how in her second year of graduation she went all the way to Kashmir to report Her love and passion for Kashmir was surely contagious And as the conversation continued I knew we were carbon copies She had recovered from cancer when I first met her and she was following the Nirbhaya case for the Express I was surprised that she reported crime stories inspite of battling cancer “Karm hi Pooja hai” used to be her pet dialogue; such was her passion for reporting I cried for the first time for her when she messaged me from Mumbai where she was being treated She said “Surbhi I want to live I want to report I want to go to Afghanistan to report” To which I said “Insha Allah we will go I will go with you as an assistant” She was my 2 am person; I used to call her to clear doubts about my projects stories life with her Her mother noticed that she never refused to talk or meet me when she didn’t want to We have had bitter arguments when we discussed politics and current affairs but that never came in between our relationship She helped me get my first-ever internship and that too at

Ocampoa former Colombian finance minister and high-ranking UN officialhas also been put forward as an alternative For yearsAmerica has effectively had unilateral control over who gets to lead the World Bank Obamas pick of Kima physician and anthropologisthas opened the door to developing countries to put forward their own candidates Regardless of whether Kim is the right choicehis candidacy and the bank will suffer unless the US takes the high ground and uses this controversy to reform how the institution is governed Only by embracing a competitive election process can the US ensure that Kim will have the mandate to revitalise an institution long resistant to change The World Bank remains stuck in an operational model of providing country-specific loans and grants that are increasingly irrelevant to its institutional mission of reducing global poverty The pressing challenges in international development have changed While fewer countries are very poormany of their citizens remain so Income disparities have increased Many of the emerging threats to global prosperity are collective problems: climate changewater shortagesinadequate agricultural productivity Critics say that Kim lacks basic qualifications for the job: government management experience and expertise in macroeconomics and finance But Kim is a refreshing change from the bankersbusiness

Related NewsWritten by T S R Subramanian | Updated: May 4 2015 12:01 am The proposed changes seem to present a coherent and effective legal weapon to tackle the menace of corruption Related News Over the past 10 years we have seen a very corrupt Central government State governments have not been far behind The present Union government took over with a promise of “clean administration” and the tone at the Centre has changed in the past few months The once venal ministries of the capital now look more business-like efficient and clean The first major decision in furtherance of the objective was taken recently when the cabinet approved amendments to the Prevention of Corruption Act The proposed changes seem to present a coherent and effective legal weapon to tackle the menace of corruption Borrowing from legal systems elsewhere significant new concepts have been introduced to create a well-rounded and balanced legal architecture Penal provisions have been increased — more stringent punishment is envisaged both for the bribe giver and taker In a significant move bribe-giving commercial establishments have been brought under the ambit of the act The responsibility for bribing a public servant will go right up to the head of the organisation not be restricted to the low-level official The concept of non-monetary gratification has also been brought in As opposed to the long trial periods seen previously — the Lalu Prasad and J Jayalalithaa cases that stretched into decades for instance — a ceiling of two years has been fixed for completing the trial A special court system has also been envisaged to bring sharper focus These and other features create expectations that the government is serious about addressing the issue To give greater comfort to officials who formulate policy — often with inadequate information and without the benefit of hindsight — the procedure for prior approval for investigation/ prosecution has been extended to include retired civil servants This has been a long-demanded reform to facilitate speedy policymaking and should help in preventing the harassment of honest officials who are often roped in just because they were in the decision-making loop The actual wording of the proposed legislation has not yet been made public However the press note issued by the government is silent on the question of amending or deleting Section 13(1)(d)(iii) of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988 on causing wilful loss to the public There has been much speculation that this clause may actually be dropped — indeed the amendment bill of 2013 envisaged its removal on the arguably specious grounds that it leads to harassment and vexatious investigation Those who have followed the history of the parliamentary and legal debate on this issue would recall that the 69th standing committee of the Rajya Sabha in its report of February 2014 had strongly argued against its deletion The recent Law Commission report on the subject has also endorsed this view It needs to be verified whether the section is actually up for deletion If it has been proposed it is highly unfortunate First civil servants will now under the new proposed dispensation get suitable cover through the provision on prior sanction for the investigation process Besides there is no other provision to tackle wilful damage to public financial interest particularly when any consideration bilateral or multilateral could be difficult to detect or ascertain prima facie For the lay reader it may suffice to point out that the deletion of this clause would severely damage the prosecution in many scam-related cases especially the 2G cases and “Coalgate” — indeed the charge against former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh flows from this section In case this clause has been dropped it could not be inadvertent No one need be under the illusion that the war against corruption has been fully joined — the cabinet decision is only a proposal for legislation Given the fate of so many other well-meaning bills and ordinances in Parliament where the debate is mostly not on merit but on purely political considerations it remains to be seen if the amendments are finally passed However legislation is only the beginning; implementation through investigation prosecution and the trial process is even more of the essence One has not so far seen an interest or urge on the part of any state government to press forward with a drive against corruption As our democracy has evolved the root of the issue is that politics is now an unregulated business largely aimed at the generation of illegal wealth — do the states have the will to fight corruption Take any state and one will find that the polity is heavily dependent on the sand land liquor excise forest and/ or builder groups which call the shots In our far-flung districts and state headquarters politics is not for public service — it is a passport to unheard-of riches This is the context in which the new proposed law will have to operate to clean up the system It is relatively easy for the prime minister to clean up the administration in Delhi — this process is well under way But how will he impact the deeply entrenched political interests in our provinces and mofussils Which chief minister will willingly shoot himself in his political foot That is the real challenge It is relatively easy to tackle transactional corruption at the field level — exemplary and swift deterrent punishment will quickly start bearing fruit But who will bell the cat “Policy corruption” is relatively more difficult to address particularly at the state level Which chief minister seriously wants to tackle it and pursue it as a political goal Addressing administrative corruption is only a small step in the scheme of things Electoral and political reform as well as speeding up the judicial process are equally critical if the war is to be joined This is a tall order — does our polity have the stomach for it Meanwhile let us celebrate the first bugle sounding the charge last week in Delhi One has to be an optimist; let this new seed sprout and let its impact reach every part of the
