will take and what effect it will have on Indias democratic politics appears to be taking centre stage Yet we seem to have less and less patience to examine what effect the Modi phenomenon will have on the middle ground of our politics Modi himself has been sending out varied and complicated signals on this His penchant for aggressively uncharitable criticism of opponents seems to reinforce the image of an uncompromising fighter This may endear him to his followersbut others may be worried: such an image leaves little room for self-correction Modis rather unconvincing flirtation with the Muslim constituency and his sudden popularity among some Muslim clerics border on cynicism rather than a change of heart This then produces the impression that his brand of majoritarian nationalism might prove to be a burden for Indias democracy In contrastthere is the hope that Indias democratic resilience will take care of Modis excesses After allthe BJP was tamed by the compulsions of electoral politics (and coalition strategy) in the mid-1990s So it is quite probable that even if the BJP manages to come back to power via the coalition routeeither Modi will not become the leader of the new dispensation or if he doeshe will be shackled by the compulsions of realpolitik Does that mean that the danger will be averted To answer this questionwe need to define what danger we are talking about Are we worried only or mainly about the person called Modi Or are we talking about the sensibilities that Modi represents It is the latter that should concern us Modi may try to become an Atal Bihari Vajpayee He may not actually attain power at Delhibut what we are witnessing currently is nothing but an extension of a larger project that was inaugurated in the late-1980s That project is about shifting or redefining the middle ground of Indias democratic politics If that happens thenModi or no Modia fundamental shift might be accomplished The Ram Janmabhoomi agitation may have petered outbut it certainly unleashed political sensibilities that were new to the then prevailing middle ground Reimagining the idea of nationhoodpositing a majoritarian political community as the basis of democracy and privileging religio-cultural assertion as democratic expression characterised the new middle ground Truethe BJP had to rein in the VHP and the Bajrang Dal; it had to put the temple building agenda on the backburner (along with the Uniform Civil Code and the abrogation of Article 370); LK Advani could not become the prime minister But there is no denying the fact that the vocabulary of politics changed Lalu Prasad and Mulayam Singh Yadav have been dexterous in articulating the message that they are the good Hindus NowNitish Kumar has announced his intention to build a grand temple for Ram Congress leaderstooare busy telling voters how much time they spend on poojas and prayers Thuseveryonewhile criticising the BJPs Hindutvahas acquiesced to a rhetoric of competitive majoritarian appeasement The national political ethos has become more Hindu (in religious terms) than ever The debate now is about who the good Hindu isand as Hinduswho patronises non-Hindus more Such shifts in the middle ground are hard to recover from Indira Gandhi had also changed the middle ground and brought about the political culture of sycophancy and deinstitutionalisation She was humbled in the elections of 1977 but the middle ground did not change because of that defeat The Congress remained as leader-centric as she had made it The bureaucracytoodid not recover from the habits of personalised loyalties Much of the institutional disorder can be traced back to those years Moreoverthe longing for strong political leadership remained as an unsatisfied craving of the Indian citizenproducing local and regional variants of authoritarianism even as such leadership was awaited at the national level A plebiscitary trait became ingrained in electoral politics Representative liberal democracy requires and presupposes a certain middle ground in order for it to be successful in delivering welfare while ensuring fairdemocratic competition Unlike many other countriesIndias democracy functioned relatively smoothly because we could evolve a hospitable middle ground Elsewherein the UK and the US for instancewe witnessed the erosion of the welfare dimension of democracy when the middle ground was dramatically transformed Margaret Thatcher in the UK or Ronald Reagan in the US forced their opponents to agree to an image makeover But beyond imagethere is also a change in the content of politics and the policy alternatives offered The New Labour in the UK represented that aspect of the shift in the middle ground Nearer homein Sri Lankawe are currently seeing a systematic attempt to redefine the middle ground as hard ethnic nationalismat the expense of liberal democratic practice In Indiain the case of Indira Gandhi and now in the case of Modithe democratic dimension is the target of the shift in the middle ground Just as Indira Gandhi did not fully abandon democracythe Modi variant of Hindutva politics will not abandon democracy Indira Gandhi mixed democracy with personal authoritarianism Modi and Hindutva politics intend to mix democracy with an anti-diversity majoritarianism Part of this has already been achieved by the BJP in the past quarter of a century The generation that witnessedas youngstersthe Ram Janmabhoomi agitation would certainly be less respectful of diversity and religious tolerance Or take the issue of competitive occupation of public spaces for religious purposes Post the 1993 Mumbai riotsthe Hindu claim to public spacesnot just in Mumbai but in many other citiesfor routine displays of religiosity the monthly chaturthisfor instance has been accepted not only by the state but also by the public in general Though there are other contributing factorsHindutva has popularised the public expression of religiosity as a legitimate political actionalmost as if it were natural to democratic politics It is this penetration of the collective conscience that augments the shifts in

2016 12:00 am Nationalism and consumerism are blinding India and Pakistan to the benefits of a collaborative relationship Top News It is perhaps entirely appropriate that we now herald August 15 with “freedom sales” and special Independence Day offers It is also not surprising that political parties now market themselves as consumer products replete with catchy slogans clearly defined archetypes and enormous advertising budgets Nationalism and consumerism are after all the two most dominant basis for our modern identities Both have been refined by human beings to fill emotional voids created by untethered modern urban life far removed from the tightly woven interdependent social fabric of our not-so-distant past We recognise that ancient people invented stories to bind themselves together by trusting in ghosts shamans and superstitions But we don’t always see the institutions that mediate our lives today the same way As Yuval Noah Harari elaborates in Sapiens “There are no gods in the universe no nations no money no human rights no laws and no justice outside the common imagination of human beings” We revel in the ease with which we criss-cross the planet partaking in foreign cultures and collaborating with colleagues across a globalised world But we pay unwittingly for our hyper-individualistic “Facebook-worthy” lives by worshipping at the altar of the two most perilous products of our imagination Nationalism and consumerism are based on imagined communities that make millions of lonely people feel like they know each other and have each other’s backs when in fact they don’t Independence Day is more than just a commemoration of the freedom struggle and its outcome It is also a well packaged carefully manufactured ritual that helps make the fantasy of the nation state real It projects the nation state as a benevolent hard-earned benefactor — an unquestionable force for good Through such rituals we internalise the visceral idea of belonging to a nation Nationalism propagates the false notion that what we have in common through either land or blood is a shared past shared interests and a shared future It indoctrinates us into the idea that unthinking allegiance to the issuer of our passports trumps our common humanity Buying into this myth gives us the psychological tools to ignore refugees justify “development” at the cost of the marginalised hound minorities and turn a blind eye to state-sponsored terrorism It allows Irom Sharmila’s sacrifices to go in vain without the slightest prick to our collective conscience It allows us to sleep well while the people of Kashmir and our men in uniform are pitted against each other in a seemingly endless blood feud with the blessing of the state Consumerism sweet talks us into similar and only slightly less dangerous traps It tells us that by conforming to common codes of purchase and behaviour we can gloss over inequalities achieve narcissistic ideals (fair skin size zero) and live in environmentally unsustainable ways What it ends up doing more frequently is providing additional bases for snobbery prejudice and exclusion in a society already chock-full with ideas for stratification It gives us the psychological tools to confuse privilege with merit ignore beggars outside fancy restaurants and justify endless acquisition The reality is that the more atomised society becomes the more we need to collaborate and understand our mutual interdependencies Technology is already pointing us in this direction as evidenced by the disruption of consumer-facing industries from taxi services to hospitality (Uber AirBnB) There are few interdependencies as inescapable as the one between countries that share borders Birthed on consecutive days in 1947 India and Pakistan have been dysfunctional for almost 70 years now Sections of civil society sports persons and artists in both countries have recognised the futility of feuding with each other and have found ways to collaborate Perhaps the time has come to formally recognise our interdependence at a political and institutional level Germany and France for instance put to rest centuries of bitter conflict when they signed the Elysee Treaty in 1963 It has been called a model treaty for old enemies Of course it is nave to expect any such progress in India-Pakistan relations given the current context of terrorism and nuclear options in both countries Yet maybe a day will come when we will be able to re-think the mindless triumphalist rituals of our back-to-back Independence Days Maybe one day we will formally recognise that if nothing else our shared geography and cultural similarities mean that we will forever be interdependent; for water for oil as markets for each other’s products as separated-at-birth siblings who are familiar enough to be instantly loveable and different enough to be murderously despicable Perhaps a day will come when 14th and 15th August will be used to reinvent the imagined communities of our two nations in a more self-aware empathetic and gracious way A new generation is coming of age in both countries that have not heard stories from ancestors who survived the horrors Partition They are watching as Indians and Pakistanis cooperate in sports and culture woo each other on campuses in the developed world and share each other’s worlds on social media Perhaps a time will come when we will use these 48 hours to commemorate our mutual interdependence Imagine a carnival-like parade celebrating our similarities and eccentricities hosted simultaneously in Lahore and Mumbai — to replace muscular shows of military strength that define most such displays of nationalistic fervour Instead of reminders to shop for Independence Day bonanzas maybe one day we will see full page advertisements that hail our Interdependence Day We live in hope As John Lennon dreamt “Imagine there’s no countries It isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for

the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and strategically placing his candidates in Lok Sabha constituencies in which the Sena is fielding candidates Raj has been rattling the Shiv Sena for quite some time since the death of his mentor and Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray He has been exploiting every weakness of the soft-spoken Uddhav to forge ahead in the battle of the senas While the Shiv Sena generally plays second fiddle to the BJP in the Lok Sabha polls in lieu of getting the lion’s share of the seats in the assembly elections it now has the unenviable task of warding off Raj’s attack which could intensify in the assembly elections at the end of the year Also its internal squabbles have begun to cost the Shiv Sena dear — CV Aravind Bangalore Exposed intentions Apropos

lottery shop owner to “round trip his funds” Earlier this month a case under Prevention of Corruption Act 1988 was registered against the senior Maharashtra government official at the Kalamboli police station This came after sleuths from the Income Tax (I-T) Department on July 7 apprehended Rasal with Rs 6580 lakh of alleged unaccounted cash at the city airport while he was travelling to Delhi on an Air India flight According to a source ACB sleuths have recovered a diary noting from a suburban jeweller who is one of the three businessmen who allegedly helped Rasal launder his money The noting written in a ‘coded-language’ pertains to the details of the alleged transactions between Rasal and the jeweller amounting to Rs 16 crore “One of the three persons allegedly approached by Rasal to

like its predecessor the current administration has not yet taken up the challenge of implementation Related News Prime Minister Modi announced his Swachh Bharat campaign to much media fanfare Central government employees helped kick off the campaign by sweeping parts of Delhi and taking a cleanliness pledge Broom in hand Modi himself led the way While sceptics may see it as yet another expertly orchestrated public relations campaign the PM’s decision to take up such a vital yet neglected issue carries both symbolic and substantive value Public hygiene and sanitary conditions across India are nothing short of appalling Campaigns to raise awareness and civic responsibility are desperately needed On the symbolic side having public employees lead the campaign on Gandhi Jayanti demonstrates that all citizens irrespective of class caste or gender have a joint responsibility to keep public spaces clean As for substance the government is committing more than Rs 2 lakh crore in public spending by 2019 A large part of this will go towards building new toilets The PM seems sincere in his concern But like its predecessor the current administration has not yet taken up the challenge of implementation The “problem” of poor sanitation cannot be reduced to the mere ignorance of hygiene Nor is it simply a cultural practice of open defecation Among other things it requires a major investment in state capacity to deliver basic sanitation services a point that is entirely missing from public discourse Sanitation also has a serious caste and gender dimension which the Indian state refuses to see These institutional blinders run deep in the Indian state The UPA also ran a toilet campaign as part of its Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan During fieldwork in rural Uttar Pradesh I came across several villages that had implemented the scheme In one such village the gram pradhan had won the Nirmal Gram Puruskar The award was given to panchayats that were fully sanitised and free from open defecation And yet none of the toilets in that village were working Instead they were being used to store firewood Women and adolescent girls continued to go out into the sugarcane fields In Badaun two teenaged cousins who had gone to relieve themselves in the fields were found hanging from a tree The district magistrate at the time had been awarded for his campaign to eliminate manual scavenging and dry or insanitary latrines These examples point to the fact that the Indian state is good when it comes to launching campaigns but woefully weak when it comes to ensuring that a toilet actually works and gets used To put it another way the Indian state has demonstrated its capacity to put in place physical infrastructure but flounders miserably when it comes to routine maintenance and monitoring The latter activities are more complex and depend among other things on the social infrastructure within each community The PM is aware that short-term awareness campaigns and new toilets are not enough which is why his administration has made “behaviour change” a priority A change in behaviour however can only take place when the public invests in the maintenance of toilet infrastructure and monitors its usage That investment in turn implies repeat interactions between the state civil society and citizens As it stands India’s public agencies are ill-equipped to handle complex tasks which all but ensures that government schemes fail in implementation Take the seemingly straightforward task of providing water supply for toilets To build and maintain running water local officials must cooperate across departments to obtain the relevant information inputs and clearances They must also seek cooperation from citizens and coordinate with panchayats A lack of administrative resources combined with extremely rigid bureaucratic norms undermines the state’s ability to coordinate the simplest of tasks To understand and respond to the more sensitive issues related to gender and caste seems a tall order Some citizens for instance may not feel comfortable using a public toilet perhaps because of the location or the social stigma attached to it Without any meaningful opportunity to give substantive feedback those who rely on public resources are effectively disempowered Slowly but surely they become dejected and disengage from public campaigns These problems repeat themselves in virtually every public service — primary education for example Modi has made sanitation a public issue He now has the opportunity to move beyond symbolic politics and lead substantive reforms particularly within local implementing agencies Without significant reforms around policy implementation Swachh Bharat will remain yet another unmet aspiration The writer is
