The irony is that the Marathi-speakerswho come from other parts of Maharashtra state and who now claim to be the true inheritors of the cityare themselves carpet-baggers The seven islands named in honour of the goddess Mumbadevi were originally inhabited by Koli fisherfolk In the mid sixteenth centurythe Portuguese captured the island A century later it was handed over to the East India Company With the British developing Bombay as a major harbour and commercial hubit attracted a large number of Gujaratis and Parsis by the eighteenth century The Marathi-speakers who came from the hinterland as labourers in the factoriesstarted trickling in only by the late nineteenth century In factbefore the division of Bombay state in 1960the numbers of Gujaratis and Maharashtrians in the city were probably equal When exactly did Bombay change its identity and transform into Mumbai Officially in 1995 No one objected to the re-christeningsince in Gujarati and Marathi the city was always called by that name Bombay was simply an anglicised mispronunciation But Mumbai is not just another return to the correct indigenous pronunciation of the nameas with Chennai or Kolkata The term unfortunately has come to have another connotationbecause of the intolerantMarathi chauvinism associated with the name The Gujarati-speakersParsisBohrasKhojas and others who played a major role in building the citys important institutions and giving the city its cosmopolitan character are today made to feel like second-class citizens by the Marathi-speakers who used their political clout and numbers to terrorise The liberal and secular character of Bombay turned insular and parochial The physical decline of the city started around the same time Urban planning was ignored by greedy politicians who looked upon Mumbai as a milch cow for party coffers and their own pockets Ironicallythose who began the process of destroying the citys harmonious social fabric were the first ones to point a finger at new migrants from the southBihar and UP that started arriving in large numbers by the end of the century Todayaccording to Suketu Mehta in Maximum Citytwo-thirds of the citys population is crowded into just five per cent of the total area of the islandwhile the rich or covenanted old tenants monopolise the remaining 95 per cent In part of the city the density is as high as 15000 per square kilometre Mehta went on to make another point: he said Mumbai should not be described as a melting pot but rather an onion with endless layerseach representing a totally different world And happilythe events of the last year have shown us that pockets of the true Bombay still exist This was brought home by the heroic response of Bombayites to the 26/11 terrorist attack and its aftermath The courage

claimed that Lionel Messi “would not be as good” without his teammates The club acted swiftly after Gratacos had made his comments about the man regarded widely as the world’s best player following Friday’s King’s Cup draw in Madrid “Leo is one of the most important people in the team but it’s not just about him” Gratacos told reporters “He would not be as good without (Andres) Iniesta Neymar

Parliament’s Budget session beginning today (23 February) doesn’t turn out to be a repeat of winter and monsoon There aren’t many even within the BJP-camp who carries high hopes of a productive budget session when the Rohit Vemula suicide and the ongoing Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) imbroglio have re-energized the opposition to mount yet another attack on the Narendra Modi-government There were enough hints of what is in the store in Tuesday’s all-party meet called by PM PM Narendra Modi This is certainly no good news forthe economy which is still struggling on the ground is desperate for fresh investments and has waited long for growth-oriented reforms such as the crucial Goods and Service Tax (GST) Bill Ever since Modi assumed power in May 2014 hopes were flying high on fast-paced economic reforms that will elevate the economy to a high-growth path and provide more jobs to millions Modi hasn’t had much luck so far His government gets so entangled in some or other political controversies just before every Parliament session start If Vypam scamandSushama Swaraj controversy spoiled the Monsoon session intolerance debate did the job in winter and this time around the JNU mess is fresh enough to spoil the show And without fail the BJP’s motor mouths have given enough ammunition to the opposition to plan its moves Reforms process stuck The Congress party doesn’t seem to be on a consensus path yet on GST with respect to their three demands (mainly the inclusion of 18 percent GST rate cap in the Bill) which would mean that the BJP will have to struggle in Rajya Sabha where its numbers are still weak to push the crucial piece of legislation “The prime minister should take the opposition into confidence and see to it that the House functions smoothly and effectively” Congress MP and chairman Public Accounts Committee KV Thomas recently told Firstpost “If the PM thinks he can do without the cooperation of the opposition let him go ahead and get the bills passed” That doesn’t sound a very promising stance for the Budget session There hasn’t been any major progress on large-ticket reforms yet mainly the GST and banking sector reforms even though the government has managed to push small reforms steps in the area of foreign direct investment subsidy rationalisation and attracting foreign entrepreneurs to build factories in India through initiatives such as ‘Make In India’ and ‘Start-Up India’ But the major challenge still remains on getting private investments to expedite the manufacturing growth So far the private sector has remained on the sidelines and public funding has acted as the key driver to growth As theBudget session nears Modi is facing more skeptics than before and a weak economic scenario being questioned by more people than ever before despite the 76 percent GDP growth projected for current fiscal year It was almost certain that GST will miss the 1 April roll out deadline when the GST Bill didn’t happen in the Winter Session With chances of this happening in the Budget session too looking difficult uncertainty will increase on this key piece of legislation (designed to subsume several taxes into one) critical to give a leg up to the economy Still there is a better chance of bankruptcy code happening since this was introduced in previous session as a money bill Investors will eagerly look at the Budget for any roadmap for the reforms path from this point “Markets keep a close eye on the progress of the reform agenda ahead of five key state elections that are likely to be held in April-May” said Radhika Rao economist at Singapore-based DBS Bank There is a visible decline in fresh investments in the economy In the first nine months of FY16 total private investments in the country declined to Rs 35 lakh crore compared with Rs 4 lakh crore in the corresponding period last year while investments by the government declined to Rs 19 lakh crore as against from Rs 398 lakh crore The total number of investment proposals for the first 8 months of the year was higher at 1366 during FY16 compared with 1074 during the same period of last year However in value terms the proposed investment was lower at Rs 202 lakh crore as against Rs 322 lakh crore during the same period of last year As noted before if one discounts the sharp unconvincing jump in the manufacturing segment growth has largely happened due to urban consumption whereas rural growth exports (which have fallen for 14 consecutive months) and fresh capital investments (also shown in the gross fixed capital formation numbers that fell to 278 per cent of GDP in Q3 from 305 per cent in Q2 and 309 per cent in Q1) have been weak The budget math Beyond the reforms agenda the budget itself will be a more complicated exercise this time for two reasons: One there is a big challenge of dealing with the bank recapitalisation issue since the bad loans have spiked beyond all estimates (the gross NPAs of banks crossed Rs 4 lakh crore in December) and resulting in more capital requirement for banks to provide for bad assets Banks also have an equal chunk of restructured loans on their balance sheets which could turn bad eventually if the economy doesn’t pick up well Though it is good that banks’ hidden rot is finally coming out in turn this would make allocation of capital to state-run banks a complex process for finance minister Arun Jaitley since banks will need much more funds to set aside bad loans So far Jaitley has allocated Rs 70000 crore for state-run banks and has asked them to find funds from the market for about Rs 11 lakh crore The consensus estimate of capital these banks would require in the year to 2019 is at least Rs 24 lakh crore when the Basel-III norms will take effect If the budget fails to give a convincing roadmap on how the government plans to address the bank recapitalisation issue and how it wants to take ahead the privatization process of government banks it can act as a major turn off for investors and rating agencies Two the big question is will the government choose to stick to the fiscal consolidation path or relax the roadmap to make room for more public spending The RBI has already warned against the second option One needs to wait and see what Jaitley choose to do The government has committed to bring down the fiscal deficit to 39 percent this fiscal year 35 in next fiscal year and 3 per cent by fiscal year 2018 But in the wake of higher wage bill in 2016-17 (on account of 7th pay commission implementation) and low growth the government may not be in a position to meet this target The only way to achieve this is to drastically cut short the fiscal spending which can damage the economic recovery “Public investment has driven the country’s economic recovery in the past 18 months and this will likely be curtailed to achieve this reduction With private-sector investment unlikely to come to fruition soon we believe the nascent recovery may suffer serious setbacks” said Anubhuti Sahay Head South Asia Economic Research (India) Standard Chartered Bank in a note After two washed out Parliament sessions it is important for the Modi-government to make sure that the Budget session doesn’t turn out to be a flop show in the context of weak economy and investor skepticism The task is even more difficult now in the backdrop of ongoing JNU mess Data

big tree (pun intended) and the machan surrounding it located near the centre of the NSD compound Bharat Rang Mahotsav 2015’s food court is now adjacent to the entrance at stage left as it were Given that taste is probably the capital pursuit in Delhi this is probably a wise decision Culture after all doesn’t get cold and rubbery And speaking of cold and rubbery this year the emphasis seems more on the quality of the food rather than serving it in a picturesque setting The machan and the food court last year relied more on its visual appeal; the food was indifferent at best It was a sight a monolithic tree tacked all over with wooden platforms and tented by a ginormous shamiana the air smoky with the smell of kebabs sizzling on skewers the inchoate sweetness of jalebis frying and of course the ubiquitous litti choka a subtle reminder that much of the nation’s naatakbazi is at home in the East The kebabs choked amid clouds of chaat masala the biryani was more colourful than flavourful and the jalebi was only good because really how can you mess that up Not so this year Apart from a mungfaliwala located right at the beginning there are 12 food stalls offering a cross-section of cuisine What’s interesting is that instead of the usual anonymous vendors dishing out characterless food this time around there are stalls put up by established brands from Daryaganj’s delicious (and contentious) Changezi Chicken to popular Lebanese eatery Zizo There are also stalls selling Delhi’s favourite standby of stuffed paranthas daulat ki chaat chicken korma and sheermaal tikkas and kebabs (unmired in chaat masala) pastries and the bastardized grilled Indian sandwiches so beloved of the roadside The prices are easy on the pocket with a meal for two setting you back anywhere between Rs 100 and Rs 200 depending on your choice in food We tried the chicken biryani from Khan Mughlai Kebab and the chicken shawarma from Zizo The former comes piled high on the ever-present thermocol plate accoutred with chatni (not chutney) and sliced onions and is to borrow an Americanism “just good eatin’” The latter is the largest shawarma we’ve seen in the city stuffed with chicken actually pickled vegetables and freshly beaten mayonnaise; accompanying it is a garlic sauce sharper than the most acerbic theatre critic Both priced at a fairly reasonable Rs 120 they

skill-building and opportunities for meaningful education is the only way to make hard work count for something CR Sasikumar Related News We need to ensure opportunities for hard work And that it is not Sisyphean toil leading nowhere The votes are in and we have a winner After a war of words the BJP and Congress found common ground; both Narendra Modi and P Chidambaram cast their votes for hard work Harvard that noted refuge for the leisure class — where the most commonly handed out grade is an A according to a recent admission by its dean of undergraduate education— is the clear loser While Modi dismissed it altogether Chidambaram hedged his bets by drawing on the “mere pas maa hai” card implicitly acknowledging that whatever shortcomings Harvard may have had in nurturing his passion for toil his mother has filled in the many gaps “My mother and Harvard taught me the value of hard work” the finance minister was quoted as saying during his budget speech to the Lok Sabha As an academic it is hard not to feel wistful about the days when over-educated elites dressed up in homespun clothing and walked among the humble Gone are the days when a Gandhi trained at the Inner Temple or a Nehru from Cambridge or an Ambedkar from Columbia could move the masses at their will Today Manmohan Singh’s Oxford PhD would be an effective tool to campaign against his party if there weren’t already so many others in the toolbox If it is of any consequence Rahul Gandhi can proudly advertise that he never actually got a degree from Harvard though he did attend some classes there (a fact that no doubt many of his detractors might bring up) But enough of that useless nostalgia for the ivory tower India is indeed in a post-postcolonial moment where time manning the family tea stall should count for more than the hours wasted in existential angst patronising a campus coffee house Modern India is finally a country of makers and doers — the home of the bootstrapped entrepreneur relentlessly seeking opportunity the hub for disruptive industries that dismantle the global status quo the birthplace of jugaad innovators who will change the world Fancy degrees are for the birds Wait a minute I may have got a bit carried away Unfortunately the facts on the ground may not give me licence to claim any of these things Access to entrepreneurial levers and gaining economic freedom is a pipe dream for virtually all Indians; the disruptive (wish we could banish that over-used adjective) industries are not cutting it; and jugaad may be good enough to solve a small local problem but far from what it would take to scale up Consider each in turn First economic freedom through entrepreneurship is a pipe dream Since 1991 India has taken a turn away from its primarily agrarian origins towards a more modern industrial economy The farmers the original hard-working entrepreneurs of India saw their lives changed as their sector has opened up to the wider world and are struggling to keep up Farmer suicide rates make headlines blame is assigned to everything from Monsanto to microfinance but there are no real structural solutions to keeping the small farmers competitive As more people abandon farms and move to cities in search of new industrial occupations the picture does not seem to be that much better According to The Economist about 85 per cent of jobs in India today are in the informal sector 11 per cent are casual jobs with formal companies These are not entrepreneurs with tickets to economic freedom and upward mobility Most of these hard-workers are in low-paying jobs and their livelihoods are insecure Second disruptive industries are not cutting it We have reached a point where many of the Indian industries that were on the verge of being global gamechangers are turning out to be out of sync with international business standards This could mean loss of jobs and less work of any kind Consider the case of the generic pharmaceutical industry widely considered to be one of the finest examples of India’s disruptive powers India supplies 40 per cent of over-the-counter and generic prescription drugs in the US According to WHO estimates 20 per cent of the generic drugs produced in India are fake This has led to alarm bells going off in the US Food and Drug Administration and emergency visits to India by its commissioner The king of Indian disrupters the BPO industry which had its golden age during 2004-06 with profitability as high as 40 per cent of total revenue has slowed down to margins of a mere 15 per cent BPO jobs have left for the Philippines and Malaysia and even to Mexico and Brazil Even the dazzling Indian Premier League which was in many respects an international game-changer has lost its innovative allure with its associations with match-fixing a trove of illegal activities and high-profile arrests Third jugaad innovation sounds great but it doesn’t scale There are scores of examples of frugal solutions using simple locally sourced ingredients and skills that find mention in the media Unfortunately there are few that find a platform to scale-up in terms of impact value or job creation With the exception of a few ventures most of these have difficulty venturing beyond their local origins Of course we know that you have to take many shots to score a goal But it is not clear that there are that many shots being taken given the size of the economy To use one benchmark counting the number of filings of intellectual property when China crossed the US in 2011 with 526412 patent applications India’s count was a distant 42291 Surely the counter-argument to all this would be: just wait The post-1990s economic emergence is still young Demographically India is a young country; just give the youth a chance and the demographic dividend will do wonders However the youth need skills to make their energy and hard work count for something According to a 2012 OECD report India is projected to produce 245 million graduates with tertiary education by the year 2020 Juxtapose that with the recent Aspiring Minds National Employability Report 2013 findings that nearly 47 per cent of graduates in India are unemployable In other words with no changes in the education system nearly 12 million of the 245 million graduates in 2020 will be unemployed and unemployable That still is merely the tip of the iceberg The UN World Population Prospects 2012 projects that India’s population in the 25-34 age group will stand at 2236 million of which barely 11 per cent would have graduate degrees Forget Harvard even hard work may be out of reach So we are agreed: hard work will win in the end But we have to ensure opportunities for hard work and that hard work is not some Sisyphean toil leading nowhere It does not matter whether India’s youth have to walk through Harvard Yard or attend Central University of Haryana For this we need commitments and investment from leadership in both the public and the private sectors Given the size and potential of India’s youthful demographic bulge investing in skill-building and opportunities for meaningful education is the only way to make hard work count for something Hard work counts when it is a ticket out of a life of enduring hardship And all those young people are lining up for tickets — now The writer is senior

desperate gambit left to resist total irrelevance — make its numbers count in the Upper House of the Parliament create a ruckus and prevent the NDA government from passing crucial bills like the GST in the upcoming Monsoon Session The negative strategy won’t bring it back to power of course but may at least keep the grand old party in headlines and ensure temporary reprieve from descending into obscurity What took place on Tuesday though creates a strong possibility that beleaguered Congress may be denied even that opportunity if Modi government plays its cards right West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee AFP During a meeting with different chambers of commerce in Kolkata the West Bengal Chief Minister on Tuesday directed state finance minister Amit Mitra — who is also the chairman of the Empowered Committee on GST — to ensure that the single-window tax bill is passed in the Monsoon Session of the Parliament Her stance also signifies that the maverick politician is graduating into a mature administrator “We are fighting for the bill as it will help industry with single-point tax instead of multiple layers of taxation Our finance minister Amit Mitra is leading the committee on GST and I think in the next one or two meetings it will be resolved… I have ideological differences with BJP and I politically oppose them But that does not mean I will create a hindrance for passing a pro-people bill like of GST” Mamata Banerjee said while addressing industry captains in the state While Mamata’s backing comes as no surprise with her having made it clear on earlier occasions that she is ready to lend issue-based support to the NDA government on bills that she deems as important her voluntary espousal will still come as a shot in the arm for Narendra Modi It also indicates how within the span of a few months the political equation at the Centre has undergone a dramatic change During the Winter Session last year TMC MPs had demonstrated with black umbrellas earthen pots and even red diaries to air their grievance against the government both inside and outside the Parliament Mamata Banerjee’s party had also been hand in glove with the Congress in stalling proceedings at the Upper House However Congress’s move to join hands with Didi’s arch-rivals the Left Front for the 2016 Assembly polls seems to have triggered two interesting modifications One it has freed Mamata Banerjee of the residual gratefulness that she long nurtured for the Gandhi family and two it has made the Bengal Chief Minister into a more confident player ready to leave her footprint on the national scene The BJP will never be able to turn her into an ally but it can get a working relationship going with the Bengal chieftain for a mutually beneficial partnership But Mamata Banerjee is only half the story Since the GST is a Constitutional Amendment Bill and requires a two-third majority to be passed the NDA must ensure 165 votes in a House of 245 A total of 53 members are set to retire before the Monsoon Session The Congress which may lose around five seats from its current strength of 64 is still way ahead of BJP which may add as many as four to its tally of 49 It basically means that NDA is still in the minority This is where Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa may make a huge difference with her 12 MPs If the NDA can woo Amma into its camp the GST battle will be nearly sealed notwithstanding Congress’s cynicism which will surely try to lodge relentless protest to rob the House of order and restrict the Bill’s passage Anticipating such a circumstance Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had last month issued an appeal to the Congress to help build a consensus but left the door ajar for voting “When we meet in the monsoon session it is time we reconsidered our positions We want all parties to be on board But if not please allow the parliamentary process of decision-making by debate and voting to take place” Jaitley had said It is in this context that we must place BJP’s recent effort in trying to get Jayalalithaa on board despite her known reservations about the GST Economic Times has reported that the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister is expected to be in Delhi later this month and there could be an effort on the government’s part to strike an arrangement with the AIADMK so that it stays away from joining forces with Congress and Left Politics they say is the art of the possible With some careful maneuvering the BJP may succeed in passing the GST Bill Where does that leave the Congress Its
