2012 are still pending in the small causes court in Mumbai the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC)’s legal department is looking at 156 additional cases linked with the civic elections held in February this year A comparison of the figures on malpractices in both the elections indicates a significant rise especially in cases alleging tampering of electronic voting machines (EVMs): the number has jumped from 2 in 2012 to at least 17 this year Legal department officials said after this year’s civic elections 156 cases have been filed in the small causes court while in 2012 the figure was 101 cases Of the cases 17 cases involve allegations of EVM machines being tampered with while 14 others relate to defective or faulty electoral list The two cases filed in 2012 are still pending

the Ravana idol at Bisrakh UP believed to be the birthplace of the Rakshasa king may think there ought to But the truth is Ravana complements Rama With his tamasik and/or rajasik features Ravana stands in contrast to Rama the epitome of satvik virtues and completes the personality of the avatara purusha The blockbuster after all needs a villain as well But beyond the universe of the populist narrations of the Rama story there exists a Ravana a complex personality who defies the stereotype of the demon There is enough evidence in the Ramayana tradition which is a collection of the numerous Ramayanas and its performative universe spread across folk and classical forms music dance painting and sculpture and perhaps now cinema as well that recognise Ravana as a rounded personality worthy of respect and recognition as a complex figure In fact every Ramakatha is also a Ravanakatha and there are as many Ravanas as Ramayanas each one telling a different story offering a unique perspective Of course popular culture has over time reduced the complex renderings of the Ramayana to turn Rama and Ravana into tropes one the blemishless god and the other a representative of all things evil This stereotype has also fed into a political narrative built around Rama as the ideal king and Ravana as his demonic other Not surprisingly Ravana has been reinvented as a pole of resistance to the ethics represented by adherents of Rama Rajya when it comes to represent a state that scrupulously enforces caste hierarchy Any show of respect or recognition of Ravana’s personality which in itself is a recognition of the complex power play and statecraft in the Rama story is seen as a challenge to a singular reading of the epic In the transition of Rama from a god-like figure to a god Ravana was turned in to a caricature of the demon king Such reductionist rendering of Ravana does not do justice to the epic imagination The earliest “revisionist” reading of the Rama story perhaps were the Jain Ramayanas like Vimalasuri’s Paumacariya In his celebrated essay Three Hundred Ramayanas AK Ramanujan says “the Jaina texts express the feeling that the Hindus especially the Brahmans have maligned Ravana made him into a villain” Ramanujan calls these pratipuranas (counter-puranas) In Paumacariya Ravana is a noble learned Jaina who has earned all his magical powers and weapons through austerities and is a devotee of Jaina masters Ramanujan adds that “this Ravana is a tragic figure; we are moved to admiration and pity for Ravana when the Jains tell the story” Many other retellings of the Rama story also takes liberties with the story line of Valmiki’s Ramayana In one version Sita is Ravana’s daughter and the abduction story becomes that of a father taking away his daughter In modern times this story likened to a story wherein Vedavathi a woman assaulted by the rakshasa king curses him that his daughter will be the cause of his death has been reworked into a popular poem (Ravanaputri) by Malayalam poet-lyricist Vayalar Rama Varma As Rama began to be projected as the idea king of the ideal republic those in disagreement with the idea would have explored the character of Ravana for a counter-politics From folk narratives that extol Ravana’s greatness to the writings of a modern political ideologue like Periyar EV Ramasami on Ramayana are evidence of this search for a counter-politics in the asura king Periyar the ideologue of the Dravidian movement reads the Ramayana as a tale of the subjugation of the Dravidians by Aryans His Ravana is a great scholar a just and brave ruler of character protector of his followers and so on In his polemical reading of Ramayana Ravana comes across as representative of a superior political vision Periyar’s take on on why Ravana disliked the devas and the sages for instance is that they would sacrifice animals during yagnas Ravana abducted Sita because Rama had insulted his sister and disfigured her The motive for abduction was not lust but revenge Rama however orders the whole of Lanka to be burnt and its inhabitants murdered a far greater crime than any that Ravana had done To Periyar celebration of Ramayana is akin to insulting the self-respect of Tamils This polemical interpretation suited Periyar’s argument for a Dravidian political imaginary that refused to accept the “Aryan” inheritance which included Brahmanism and the Sanskrit language In many of these retellings Ravana is a more exuberant personality to borrow a category socialist thinker Ram Manohar Lohia uses to describe India’s “three great dreams of perfection” Lohia considers Rama the perfection of the limited personality — someone who stays within the circles of rules Krishna to Lohia is the second of the “great dream of perfection” Krishna symbolises the exuberant personality who recognises rules and constitution only as long as it wishes to do so and violates them the moment that their administration begins to prove irksome There is an element of this “exuberant personality” in Ravana From his genealogy one may deduce that he is a self-made person almost a subaltern hero who fights all odds to come into his own as a ruler He is a scholar a musician a Shiva devotee who refuses to submit to the rules and hierarchies imposed by the society It is perhaps this rebellious streak that has attracted non-conformists especially artists to him This Ravana is a complex political figure a counterpoise to Rama who is a prisoner of his destiny the raja dharma of his time His celebration can yield a critique of Rama’s political vision especially its Hindutva version That should be a disturbing thought for those who seek to a build a muscular political narrative around Raja Ram For all the latest Lifestyle News

positioned themselves as anti-Brussels and as opposed to the European project Related News Europe is now in post-mortem mode Though Sunday’s European Parliament elections did not deliver a deathblow to the idea of Europe they definitely sounded a warning knell All over Europe extremist far-right or far-left parties have won the elections or made significant electoral gains These are parties that for the most part contested on an anti-immigrant anti-Euro nationalistic anti-EU platform Or in a most curious paradox they want in to opt out The pan-European outcome is definitely a victory of the Euro-sceptics and the EU rejecters And it does not get more blatantly anti-EU than the stand of the French front-runner the National Front (FN) “Our people demand one type of politics: politics by the French for the French with the French They don’t want to be led anymore from the outside to submit to other laws” said a jubilant Marine Le Pen whose party secured 25 per cent of the vote outstripping the governing centre-left Socialist Party and the centre-right UMP Her party advocates a withdrawal from the Euro and Schengen zone with tighter borders and a return to the “nation” Labelled a “political earthquake” by the French prime minister the election results sent shock waves through France with President Franois Hollande calling for an emergency meeting of the cabinet and attempting to reassure the French through a televised broadcast Yet the shifting faultlines of the French political landscape have been obvious ever since the FN garnered 46 per cent of the popular vote in a recent by-election and since the municipal elections in March when they won 15 town halls A country that voted the Socialists into power a mere two years ago is now beginning to veer to the far right The reasons for this electoral success are not hard to find Under Marine Le Pen’s charismatic leadership the FN has gone through a makeover and donned a softer more acceptable mask Le Pen has replaced the extreme racist anti-Semitic diatribe that was the trademark of the party under her father Jean-Marie Le Pen with a more palatable (to some) though firmly anti-Islamist anti-Roma and anti-immigrant discourse Her party has acquired new legitimacy in the eyes of many who were uncomfortable with its previous even more extreme positions Now Jean-Marie Le Pen’s shocking remarks like his recent pre-poll statement “a deadly Ebola epidemic would solve the country’s problem with immigration” do not seem to deter voters Moreover the politics of fear that is deeply engrained in the FN’s DNA has been deftly exploited to create a climate of insecurity among France’s disaffected working class and unemployed youth The blame for high unemployment and rising crime is laid squarely at the door of immigrants who according to the FN are able to slip in easily due to Europe’s open-border policy Another of the FN’s pet themes the dilution of “French” culture through the growing Islamisation of France is used to whip up anti-immigrant sentiments and win votes Lastly for the FN the erosion of purchasing power and the decline in living standards are to be imputed to Europe’s free markets the Euro and the EU-imposed austerity measures In short for the FN Europe is to blame for most of France’s ills Marine Le Pen has gone so far as to identify the EU as public enemy number one The FN’s appeal has also been bolstered by the record disenchantment of the French with Hollande’s Socialist government and its ineffectual policies as well as the French voter’s growing disillusionment with the infighting and divisive politics of the main opposition party the UMP The high rate of absenteeism 57 per cent in the European elections worked to the FN’s advantage However French voters consider the European elections to be of secondary importance and it is almost certain that the FN would not have the same measure of success in legislative elections were they to be held today The far-right’s electoral success in France has been mirrored by the UK Independent Party (the UKIP) and the far-right Danish People’s Party An upswing in Euroscepticism has generally led to a higher vote for protest parties that have positioned themselves as anti-Brussels and as opposed to the European project Despite the significant inroads by anti-EU parties the main pro-EU centre right and left groups continue to enjoy a comfortable majority in the European Parliament and therefore no major shift in policy is likely to occur However if the Eurosceptic parties across Europe were to form a political caucus they could make their voice heard more forcefully Le Pen’s pre-poll intention was to form such a caucus to block a planned trans-Atlantic trade pact Though politics makes for some strange bedfellows few of the far-right parties appear willing to unite with the FN It remains to be seen if Le Pen can win them over At the national level in France an extremist party with a radicalised nationalistic agenda like the FN is now becoming mainstream Alarm bells need to be sounded more vehemently The party now poses a serious threat to the republican values on which France has been founded The author

Wednesday wondered if the Opposition parties are in favour of black money as they are observing the first anniversary of demonetisation as a black day On this day in 2016 Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes which he said was aimed to eradicate black money and terror funding Opposition parties have decided to observe the first anniversary on Wednesday as black day as the decision to scrap the high denomination notes had put people into difficulty and resulted in job losses File image of Union defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman PTI Speaking to reporters Sitharaman asked whether Opposition parties are in favour of black money by observing 8 November as a black day while the government had taken the move in order to eradicate black money She also said former prime minister Manmohan Singh turned a blind eye on the corruption in his government and added that it is disappointing that he is against demonetisation Sitharaman said the government had announced voluntary disclosure scheme in 2016 urging people to declare their unaccounted money/assets with 30 September 2016 as the last date "Demonetisation was done only after giving time to the people" she said Queried about the double impact on people —demonetisation and introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST) in quick succession —Sitharaman said: "When we came to power the Opposition questioned why the GST bill was not passed Similarly people queried us about bringing out the black money" She said when the government acted on these two issues people are now saying could these two could have been spaced out Sitharaman said there is no compulsion on the people to make digital payments But digital payment has enabled the government to eliminate bogus claimants She said the total number of currency notes to gross domestic product (GDP) has to be at a certain level and hence the high value notes were banned last year Sitharaman said about 20 percent more confiscation of black money happened post demonetisation She said the BJP government’s fight against black money will continue and the finance ministry is looking into the complaints on transaction fee charged on people on digital payments She also said demonetisation did have an impact on the country’s economy but after one quarter the negative impact has started to taper down "We are not going to sit back now saying we have done demonetisation We will continue to take steps to eradicate black money" Sitharaman said According to her the economy should be open and transparent as secrecy and closed economy is not good Click here for updates on demonetisation anniversary There is an anecdotal account of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) second sarsanghchalak (head) MS Golwalkar and his concern for the Congress In 1967 when the Congress party lost Assembly elections in many states Guruji as Golwalkar was known was a worried man In one of his sojourn in Gujarat he was pacing up and down soon after the results of Congress’s decimation came in “What is the worry sir” a senior RSS member asked Golwalkar “I am worried about the country as the Congress losing ground is an ominous sign” Those who attended to Golwalkar those days included a young lad who is now the Prime Minister of the country Congress leader Digvijay Singh PTI Despite Narendra Modi’s clarion call of making India “Congress mukt (free of Congress)” the BJP is acutely conscious of the fact that Congress’s irrelevance at the national political scene would be harmful for the country At the same time top BJP leaders are also aware of the fact that given its rich political history and legacy Congress has an innate capacity to revive and regain strength But there is genuine fear among a section of Congress veteran leaders that the Grand Old Party is losing connect with its history and unique legacy This is the context in which we must place the metamorphosis of Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh — who often doubles as the party’s conscience-keeper — from addressing Osama Bin Laden as “Osama-ji” to his seemingly dramatic approval of “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” chants An astute leader Singh is desperately trying to hold on to the sands slipping through his tightly clenched fingers But he isn’t the only one who realises that the Congress has been gradually losing ground by joining the wrong side of debate on nationalism/anti-nationalism In the political space the BJP has successfully forced Congress to cede the middle-ground and align itself with the Left and radical Left positions on critical national issues Historically the Congress has always been on the side of robust nationalism without being a communal party Unlike Bharatiya Jana Sangh (BJS) and its later incarnation Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which identified itself as a predominantly Hindu party the Congress offered an umbrella where competing social and political forces could gather and co-exist This is the precise reason why the Congress never lost ground to the BJP on the issue of robust “nationalism” Be it 1962 war with China or 1965 1971 wars with Pakistan or Operation Bluestar in 1984 the Congress won unqualified admiration from the RSS-BJP leadership However old-timers in the party are quite peeved over the manner in which Congress is increasingly being seen as an ideological appendage to the Left parties Two instances are particularly galling for those like Singh who believe that electoral setbacks must not push the party to go astray from its original path Congress leaders admit that Rahul Gandhi’s dalliance with JNU episode has not gone down well with the party’s support base in the Hindi heartland In their own estimates the scion of Nehru-Gandhi family cavorting with those chanting full-throated slogans for destruction of India has substantially damaged the historical perception of Congress While Rahul’s visit to Hyderbad Central University (HCU) on Rohit Vemula was seen as good politics his indulgence with the JNU rebels was taken as dilution of the party’s nationalist credentials What appears to have found the party strategists in a bind is Congress’s initial hesitation on the issue related to chanting of “Bharat Mata Ki Jai (glory to Mother India)” In the freedom struggle the description of the nation as “Mother India” is a construct which has its genesis much older than the RSS In fact the RSS borrowed it from the Congress and adopted it as its own In the post-partition phase “Mother India” as effectively espoused by the Congress and its stalwarts came across as an all-encompassing liberal and caring but not permissive concept This concept was beautifully translated into a movie “Mother India” where lead actor Nargis playing a benevolent mother shoots dead her own son found on the wrong side of the law Incidentally the Congress not the RSS or its adjuncts epitomized this concept There is little doubt that RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s insistence on displaying their patriotism by chanting “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” is as ridiculous as it can get Yet there is a strong possibility of using this ploy to push the Congress further away from its historical moorings and appropriate the legacy which does not belong to the Sangh Parivar In fact it would be instructive for the Congress leadership to realise that much of the BJP’s organisational growth is sustained by ceding of middle-ground by the Grand Old Party of the country Its course correction is a welcome step as further disarray would ruin the party beyond repair — a prospect that even

Top News The president of cycling’s world governing body defended the Olympic road course on Saturday calling it a fair test and suggesting those who crashed pushed past their limits Brian Cookson addressed a number of other issues during a wide-ranging news conference at the Rio de Janeiro Games at the midway point of the cycling program including doping the schedule of the track cycling program and several road racing issues But perhaps the biggest hot-button issue through a week of competition was a road course that some had labeled too dangerous One particularly nasty descent caused riders such as Italian star Vincenzo Nibali to go down and left Dutch rider Annemiek van Vleuten in the hospital “We’ve had discussions about the number of crashes and the circumstances It is my belief and our belief at the UCI that the courses were in the bounds of what was reasonable” Cookson said Van Vleuten spent several days in the hospital with a concussion and three small fractures to her spine She flew home to the Netherlands on Friday to continue her recovery “It’s the rider’s responsibility to make the right decisions” Cookson said “I went to speak with Annemiek in the hospital and talked to her and in her case it was an error of judgment there (going too fast on the descent)” Cookson was also asked about the silver medal won by Olga Zabelinskaya in the time trial It came just days after the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled a ban on Russian athletes who had been barred from competing for prior doping offenses was unenforceable allowing Zabelinskaya to compete “The Russian cyclist who finished second in the time trial was entitled to be here under the rules of the (World Anti-Doping Agency) and the IOC” Cookson said “I’m guessing she will not be the only previously convicted doped athlete at the games” Cookson has been working to clean up the sport after years of doping including Lance Armstrong’s admission of guilt a few years ago And he said the positive test of a Brazilian cyclist in an out-of-competition test the week before the road race was a sign of progress “I’ve said this many times before cycling has been leading for many years in the fight against doping in sport” Cookson said “Whether there is a small number of athletes trying to cheat I hope not but if they are we will catch them and we will sanction them” In other issues: Cookson said the UCI is still examining the blood bags from Operation Puerto the Spanish police investigation into a doping ring led by Dr Eufemiano Fuentes Cookson otherwise declined to comment on the ongoing investigation saying only that “when we have something to report we will” The UCI is confident WorldTour teams will compete in the team time trial at the world championships in Qatar Several teams announced plans to boycott the event in part because they are required to compete at their own expense Cookson said he was open to smaller teams in major events such as the Tour de France but he warned that “I think some of the bigger teams would object to that and there are pros and cons to the details of that It’s something I wouldn’t rule out but let’s move forward gradually” The UCI hopes to expand the cycling program at future Olympics though Cookson did not say whether it would be merely an expansion of the track program or the addition of another discipline such as

compared in a strait-jacketed manner but termed the Sri Lankan legend as “gifted” bowler compared to the Indian tweaker who is a “smart” operator Muralitharan finished with 800 Test wickets – highest by any bowler while Ashwin has raced his way to fastest 250 wickets “They are two different bowlers Murali was a genuinely gifted talented cricketer But Ashwin is very smart and has developed a skill set which says a lot about him He has many variations he can change his line and length but these two are hard to compare” said Samaraweera The former middle-order batsman is impressed at how the Indians have this legacy of producing one great player after another “I am the biggest believer in legacies Like Sunil Gavaskar set the benchmark and then Sachin Tendulkar chased that He set a higher benchmark and now Virat Kohli is chasing that With Ashwin Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh set the benchmarks and now he is chasing that If he plays for another 7-8 years hopefully he is fit he will be in the range between 600 to 800 wickets” On Bangladesh’s chances Samaraweera said that the second innings batting remains a concern “I think biggest concern for me is our second innings batting We were blown away in New Zealand Hopefully the boys are learning At the moment I know a lot of areas are there for improvement but you have to understand how good these spinners are It’s important that we have to start well first half an hour” said the Sri Lankan Samaraweera feels that Mominul Haque’s dismissal will have a great bearing as he has the ability to drop the anchor “Unfortunately Mini (Mominul’s nickname for his 5 feet height) is the biggest man He is a solid No 3 in last 2-3 years Unfortunately he got out to a decent ball We have another four-five batters left and we need to have multiple 60-70 run stands to save the match” For Bangladesh the biggest problem has been their inexperience said Samaraweera “The biggest thing is when they play more and more Test cricket I think they will get more awareness I spoke to a few batsmen in England series Some have never faced reverse swing bowling in domestic cricket So it’s hard in international cricket I can only tell them about

boosting cardiac health oat-based breakfast cereals have now come under the scanner as researchers have detected in them potentially dangerous mould contamination Some oat-based breakfast cereals contain a high-level of mould-related toxin called ochratoxin A (OTA) that has been linked to kidney cancer in animal studies the researchers who procured the samples from the US reported “OTA has been found in all major cereal grains including oat wheat and barley worldwide and considered as a potential concern in food safety” said researchers Hyun Jung Lee and Dojin Ryu from the University of Idaho in the US However the incidence of OTA was highest in oat-based breakfast cereals followed by wheat-based corn-based and rice-based breakfast cereals the findings showed Scientists do not yet know how the toxin affects human health but the International Agency for Research on Cancer which is part of the World Health Organisation classifies it as a possible human carcinogen Animals exposed

mesmerised us for two weeks died the day Lalit Modi mentioned Sonia Gandhi’s name Jairam Ramesh abruptly stopped appearing at his daily press conferences looking like a hysterical tabla player And as abruptly news channels seemed to discover that there were other things of greater importance happening in the world Like major terrorist attacks like our elected representatives trying to give themselves a massive pay hike like Indian businessmen meeting the Prime Minister to tell him that the economy remains in bad shape The media has not come out of ‘Lalitgate’ well Senior television journalists disgraced themselves by not following that most fundamental of journalistic principles: check the story out before running with it And they disgraced themselves further by showing that when it came to Sonia Gandhi they remembered how much they enjoyed those private invitations to tea in 10 Janpath India’s former de facto prime minister gave few interviews but communicated regularly with journalists through cozy tea parties It was a good strategy that worked well then and continues to pay dividends Those tea parties ensured that nobody made a fuss when the Government of India quietly unblocked Ottavio Quattrocchi’s bank accounts in London in the last days of Dr Manmohan Singh’s first term as prime minister Was he not wanted in India Was Bofors bribe money not found in Swiss accounts in his and his wife’s name Why did nobody ask why a fertilizer salesman was paid money by an armaments company These are questions that could and should have been asked in the past two weeks They were not No The media has not come out well But nobody has come out worse than the Congress Party What it saw as its moment of renewal turned so quickly into its moment of disgrace that we can only hope that lessons have been learned and that the monsoon session of Parliament is not wasted on further hysterics What has become sadly apparent is that the Congress Party has not got used to being out of power Jairam Ramesh actually said in one of his press conferences that ‘soon we will have our government in Delhi and in Rajasthan’ Not yet Not for at least another four years If those who lead the Congress Party remember this there is some chance that the Prime Minister will be criticised for the mistakes he is making Mistakes that could eventually cause India serious harm Instead of ordering the Prime Minister around as if he were just a ‘chai-wallah’ and telling him which ministers to sack when and when to speak why does Congress not attack him for his government’s obvious failures There are many that are becoming slowly very obvious and of these the most worrying is that the economy continues to be in the doldrums This can no longer be blamed on ‘legacy issues’ because there are too many mistakes that have been made in the past year both of omission and of commission For a start you cannot hope for ‘Make in India’ and go after black money at the same time When tax hounds (often corrupt) are unleashed on investors they usually flee By making black money such a big issue the signal to the tax department is: go forth and harass Since the Modi government came to power major international companies have been hounded for taxes of ‘retroactive’ nature The Finance Minister said to me once that the retroactive tax was among the worst legacies he inherited So why is it still there On his travels abroad the Prime Minister assures investors that India is truly open for business So why are there no signs that those layers of red tape have started being cut No sign from the ministers in charge of important economic ministries that they welcome private investment It is pretty much business as usual If private investment does not come there will be no jobs and if jobs do not urgently start being created the despair of the past few years will quickly return In France the Prime Minister said in a speech to the Indian community that he hoped to make India into a country that young Indians would not need to run away from in search of employment So why are things moving so slowly If there is one single thing that will ensure Modi’s defeat in the next general election it will be his failure to revive the moribund economy he inherited When the Congress Party’s leaders discover this they will also discover their path back to power But perhaps this is
