    उनने बाबरी विध्वंस के बाद कभी दाढ़ी नहीं बनायी

    परिजनों,साथियों मित्रों से कह दिया कि इस देश में दाढ़ी रखने पर अगर कत्लेआम होता है तो हम कत्ल हो जाने के लिए तैयार हैं।

    वे आखिर तक अंबेडकरी आंदोलन को आम जनता के हकहकूक की लड़ाई में तब्दील करना चाहते थे।वे आरक्षण के बदले अधिकार को तरजीह देने वाले थे।

    वे मानते थे कि बाबासाहेब के बाद जो परिस्थितियों और सामाजिक यथार्थ के साथ साथ उत्पादन प्रणाली और अर्थव्यवस्था का सर्वनाश हुआ है,उससे समता और न्याय की लड़ाई पहचान और अस्मिता के आधार पर लड़ी नहीं जा सकती।


    वे भारतभर में आजीवन मछुआरों को संगठित करते रहे और मछुआरों की ट्रेड यूनियन भी उनने बनायी।वे आखिर तक अंबेडकरी आंदोलन को आम जनता के हकहकूक की लड़ाई में तब्दील करना चाहते थे।वे आरक्षण के बदले अधिकार को तरजीह देने वाले थे।

    उनने बंगाल के मेडिकल कालेजों में अनुसूचित जातियों और जनजातियों के आरक्षण लागू करने वाले थे जबकि बिना आरक्षण राजवंशी मछुआरा वजूद के बावजूद वे चर्मरोग विशेषज्ञ डाक्टर बन चुके थे और बिना फीस लिये वे स्त्री रोगों,शिशुरोगों और लाइलाज वृद्धों की चिकित्सा मृत्यु से चार पांच साल पहले तक करते रहे।


    बैंकों में देशभर में अनुसूचित जातियों और जनजातियों का आरक्षण और अनिवार्य प्रोमोशन भी उन्हींने लागू करवाया।


    जब बंगाल की प्रगतिशील सरकार ने मंडल कमीशन लागू करने से इंकार कर दिया इस दलील के साथ कि बंगाल में जात पांत नहीं है,तब गुणधर बाबू मंडल कमीशन लागू करवाने का आंदोलन कर रहे थे।


    उनका साफ मानना था कि आरक्षण खत्म करने का चाकचौबंद इंतजाम है और मंडल कमीशन लागू हो गया तो मजबूत जातियों को जब आरक्षण का लाभ मिलेगा तो कमजोर जातियों को वंचित करना मुश्किल होगा।

    इंदिरा गांधी के मंत्रिमंडल में तब जूनियर मंत्री प्रणव मुखर्जी और बंगाल विधावसभा के अद्यक्ष अपूर्व लाल मजूमदार ने बैंकों के राष्ट्रीयकरण के बाद गुणधर बाबू के साथ तमाम बैंकों के एम डी के साथ बैठक की और उसके बाद संसदीय समिति में आम नागरिक गुणधर बाबू को कोअप्ट करके शामिल कराया और इस समिति कीसिपारिश के मुताबिक पहले आर्डिनेंस जारी करके 1972 में बैंको में संरक्षण लागू करवाया और फिर संसद से उसे कानून में तब्दील भी किया।बाबू जगजीवन राम के पहले भाषण के बाद संसद में इसका कोई विरोध भी नहीं हुआ।


    इस अकेले कृतित्व के लिए गुणधर बर्मन को बंगाल ही नहीं,पूरे भारत में याद किया जाना चाहिए।लेकिन न बंगाल में बैंक कर्मचारी और अनुसूचित यह इतिहास जानते हैं और न बाकी देश में।इसलिए यह आलेख बांग्लाभाषियों को संबोधित नहीं है।


    अंग्रेजी में भी इसे नहीं लिखा है।


    हिंदी में लिखा है क्योंकि मेइन स्ट्रीम के ताजा वार्षिक अंक में हमारे आदरणीय मित्र आनंद तेलतुंबड़े ने अपने आलेख में साबित किया है कि 1999 से आरक्षण कहीं लागू हो ही नहीं रहा है।


    गुणधर बाबू की स्मृतिसभा में बैंक आफ बड़ोदरा के अनसूचित कल्याण संघ के पूर्वी भारत के अध्यक्ष सुरेश राम ने कहा कि बैंकों में अब सिर्फ पिछड़ों को आरक्षण दिया जा रहा है।कहा जा रहा है कि अनुसूचित पहले से ज्यादा हैं और उन्हें फिलहाल पांच छह साल तक आरक्षण और कोटा के तहत बैंकों में नौकरी दी नहीं जा सकती।बाकी सेक्टर में जो हाल हैं,उन सेक्टरों के लोग बताये।


    आनंद तेलतुंबड़े का आरक्षण पर जो आलेख है ,वह अंग्रेजी में मेइन स्ट्रीम में छपा है।जिसका अनुवाद रेयाज ने हिंदी में करक दिया है और वह आलेख भी रुबीना संपादित आनेद के हिंदी लेखों के संकलन में शामिल हैं।


    कृपया उसे अवश्य पढ़े कि आरक्षण और कोटा है ही नहीं और मिथ्या की नींव पर यह मंडल कमंडल कुरुक्षेत्र है।


    पुनःआरक्षण कोटा देशभर में मंडल बनाम कमंडल गृहयुद्ध का कुरुक्षेत्र है,उस आरक्षण और कोटा का कहीं वजूद ही नहीं है ग्लोबीकरण,निजीकरण और उदारीकरण के एफडीआई फिजां में।


    जहां हर अनैतिक दुराचार को आर्थिक सुधारों के विशुध हिंदुत्व बतौर कानूनी तौर पर लागू करना सामाजिक समरसता है,मेकिंग इन है।


    खुली लूट,हत्या ,बलात्कार,बेदखली,बहिस्कार,सूचना निषेध अभिव्यक्ति निषेध को विदेश पूंजी और विदेशी हितों के मुताबिक कानूनी बनाना और कानूनी नरसंहार की संस्कृति लागू करना ही आज का सामजिक यथार्थ है और आरक्षण राजनीतिक है।


    बैंकों में देशभर में अनुसूचित जातियों और जनजातियों का आरक्षण और अनिवार्य प्रोमोशन भी उन्हींने लागू करवाया।


    इसके बावजूद वे धर्म जाति की पहचान के खिलाफ थे और बहुजन आंदोलन को वैज्ञानिक सर्वहारा का आंदोलन बनाना चाहते थे।

    On Reservations

    Anand Teltumbde


    (A Note on the Discussion on Affirmative Action in Private Sector on 11 July 2015 and rejoinder to the comments in favour of Reservations made by Prof Sukhdeo Thorat)


    During the customary question-answer session following the presentation of Mr Armugam Raju on Affirmative Action (AA), during the Two Days International Seminar on "Dalits and African-Americans in 21st Century:  Learning from Cross-Cultural Experiences", I commented on the mistaken emphasis on this fancy issue of Affirmative Action (AA) in private sector saying that its potential to provide jobs to Dalits is extremely constricted.

    I cited figures to give an idea of size and composition of the private sector which is likely to be the candidate for extending the AA. Briefly, I stated that the Indian workforce is about 480 million. It is broadly divided into two segments. Nearly 94% of the workforce is in the unorganized sector and the balance 6% is in the organized sector. Over the years, the organized sector has shrunk from nearly 8% in 1970s and 1980s to 6% today because of the shift towards informalization of labour during neoliberal period. This tiny organized sector is further divided into two: public sector and private sector. The public sector still contributes close to 68% of the organized sector employment and the private sector contributes the balance 32%. Unlike the public sector, which had some definitive structure, inherited from the administrative bureaucracy (but which is breaking since 1990s under market pressure to be competitive), the private sector reflects a spectrum with amorphous structure, one end of which could be depicted by fly-by-night operators and the other the megalith multinationals like Tatas and Reliance of this world. The space of the private sector could be seen further divided in terms of workforce into two segments: Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) and the big private companies, the former comprising approximate 70% and the latter 30%. While the AA can be theoretically imagined to be applicable to the entire private sector, practically, only the big companies in the private sector can be seen as real candidates. Notwithstanding this division, if one takes increasing casualization, informalization and contractualization of labour, which today may be in tune of 1:3 ratio (if one person is on the roll of the company, there shall be three workers on contract), the potential space reduces to a range of 0.019% to 0.08%, the realistic figure would be closer to the former. This tiny space also may be deceptive. Much of it might comprise the working class space which may already have preponderance of Dalits. The only difference it would make is that today they are incognito, unstigmatized; tomorrow they would be counted and get stigmatized as the undeserving beneficiaries. The huge space of the private sector is occupied by the service sector companies like IT and telecom, which employ thousands of people every year. They face huge crunch on supply side and have been recruiting Dalit students en masse from campuses. It is a different matter where these Dalit students get placed; they do get relatively lower rungs than others in organizational hierarchy. It is not, however, only because of their caste but factors which constitutes their class. They may not look as smart as non-Dalits in campus interviews, they may not speak as good English as others, may have relatively poor grades, etc. The difference can be marked in cases of first generation of Dalits and the second and third generation of Dalits. (first generation refers to the first time beneficiary of reservation, second generation to the sons/daughters of parents who availed reservations and so on). Today they are respectably there without caste stigma and have been progressing on their own steam. Tomorrow they will get branded as undeserving 'sons-in-laws'. The potential space for the AA in private sector thus reduces to very small, may be just 10 to 20% of the theoretical space that is computed above. If one takes stock of the experience with the implementation of the quota system in the public sector, which is infamously reflects insincerity of the establishment to give Dalits their dues, it stands to anyone's imagination what would happen to the AA in private sector. The potential benefits to Dalits from the AA in private sector will as such be extremely small and nowhere close to constituting a solution, even a partial one, to the burgeoning problem of jobs for Dalit youth. It is therefore that I called it constructing a mirage which most Dalits, reared in identitarian culture, will be running after.

    cost-benefit analysis of the reservation

    The next point I made was about the cost-benefit analysis of the reservation, particularly in reply to a question asked of me by Comrade Bharat Patankar seeking elaboration of what I said. To his metaphorical question about what I would do in a drought situation, insinuating that reservations in private sector were necessary to alleviate the drought of jobs being created by privatization, I said that whatever we do cannot ignore cost-benefit aspect of the action. We cannot pour money into ditch in the name of drought eradication. There is no benefit that does not have its associated cost. Reservations, if they were seen as benefit, also must have had cost. However, I have not come across an iota of suggestion, much less discussion, about the cost of reservations that Dalits paid. As a matter of fact, Dalits, though blissfully unaware, have already paid a huge cost for the reservations. The cost could be gauged in terms of psychological damage Dalit children incur when they are made to stand up in a class as scheduled castes. It is the cost that conditions them to persistently produce self-fulfilling prophesies in terms of their performance. The cost could be conceived in terms of political emasculation of educated Dalits, who are the only investments of this poor community. The cost may also be counted in terms of lifelong loss s/he accumulates through prejudiced prospects and eventually untimely burnout. It is therefore that I called the public sector a veritable burial ground for Dalit aspiration. For the sake of statistical compliance, the managements over the years strategized to take due numbers of Dalits but thereafter unleash a complex caste-dynamics by which they move up the ladder with slowest pace, all others passing them by inducing demotivation and setting in a vicious cycle. In order to stress how this obsession for reservation has completely neglected the demands for inputs such as education, health, and livelihood security, indisputable basics for the empowerment of human beings. What is the use of inclusion of a fellow who cannot even walk into a cricket team with reservation? This is no rhetoric; it depicts the reality today. Even reservation requires some basic wherewithal which is being systematically denied. It can be seen glaringly in the fact that the reservation seats in our IITs and IIMs are not getting filled for last several years. I argued with Comrade Patankar, that if the state ensures that a child coming into the world without carrying an imprint of his parents' disabilities and gets equal quality education through neighborhood schools, gets basic health care through the public health care system, one can see much of the need of such palliative as reservation being eliminated.  

    a mirage does not have capacity to compensate the losses due to privatization.       

    The thrust of my argument was that reservation in private sector might prove to be a mirage. It does not have capacity to compensate the losses due to privatization. This, of course, was in a familiar format. The larger target was the obsession of the educated middle class for reservation to the utter neglect of the basic needs of the masses, which unpardonably betrayed their ignorance that even reservation subsumed them. If the masses are guaranteed basic ingredients for empowerment, reservations may not be needed, but never vice versa as the current situation of Rural Dalits amply illustrate. If Dalit children continue to be stunted and anemic, excluded from quality education, what is the use of reservations? If there is no supply base to avail of reservations, any amount of reservation is bound to remain on paper.

    Does this reflect either-or proposition (either reservation or redistributive policies)? Actually, reservation itself being a redistributive measure, I did not quite understand how reservation could be pitched against redistribution, whatever the latter meant. However, Professor Sukhdeo Thorat who was chairing the session spoke for nearly an hour assuming that I was taking an either-or position between reservation and redistributive measures, conveniently marshaling historical arguments Dr Ambedkar made to emphasize his agenda of social justice in contention with the Congress as well as Communists. He did not counter any of my arguments about the incapacity of the private sector or the cost-benefit aspects of reservations or the primacy of the redistributive measures. He just focused on a single point how redistribution (mistakenly equated with socialism) will not solve the problem of social discrimination and how most countries have some form of reservations in favour of their weaker sections in appreciation of this fact. While I may deal with these points later in this note, I must say that they did not relate at all with the points I made. While his entire comment thus was off the point, it clearly created an impression in many superficial listeners that he refuted my points and reinforced the popular sentiment of the middle class Dalits in favour of reservations.

    a powerful weapon in the hands of the ruling classes.

    No sane person can discount the need for historical reservations for Dalits simply because without them the Indian society would not have given them their dues. But the way the policy is formulated and enacted, it loses this sense and reduces it to be a powerful weapon in the hands of the ruling classes. It turned the concept on its head and consequently distorted everything to the detriment of Dalits. One can note many other infirmities of the provisions which not only produced deficient outcome but also had seriously affected the lives of Dalits in other spheres. One does not have to smell conspiracy, but if one takes a hard look at these policies one cannot miss that these policies have served the interests of the ruling classes many times more than they benefitted Dalits. It is unfortunate that none smelt this rot and kept singing praises to reservations.

    Most people know that I am not sold to uncritically upholding reservations. I have presented my outspoken analysis to people over the last three decades exposing the politics and economics of the policies along with some of its infirmities. I have also engaged in contemporary debate such as 'sub-categorization' that first arose in Andhra Pradesh in 1995 and thereafter has spread across the country like virus. I had proposed a solution in the pages of EPW as to how this issue could be best overcome while simultaneously criticizing the Dalits' obsession for reservation and readiness to be a plaything in the hands of the ruling classes for petty gains. I have even written on reservation in private sector when the demand first popped up in Bhopal Declaration and thereafter nourished by the people who openly upheld neoliberal globalization. While I upheld reservation as it was initially instituted in colonial times as an exceptional policy measure by the state for the exceptional people, and problematized it for having arbitrarily restricted to only the public sphere. I have unequivocally denounced the dilution of this principle in the Constitution that made reservations the most potent weapons in the hands of the ruling classes. I have been critical of the implicit premise of backwardness behind reservations and its faulty design that perpetuates inequality rather than eradicating it. It was not only sterile criticism; I provided simultaneously alternative remedies.


    shamelessly invoked Ambedkar painting him a petty neoliberal

    Post-1990, when the government adopted the elitist neoliberal reforms, a section of so-called Dalit intellectuals uninvitedly rushed in to support them, obviously to seek favours from the ruling classes. They shamelessly invoked Ambedkar painting him a petty neoliberal to sell their arguments to gullible Dalits. Many of these low caliber people made their careers in process during the neoliberal years. The people however could not be fooled for long as they began facing the heat of these policies in terms of widespread job losses, curtailment of basic services, and general livelihood crisis. The ruling classes rather sensed the heat early on and threw up ideas of reservation in private sector through a bunch of Dalit intellectuals to vent off the building-up resentment among Dalits. The idea caught on when the government began speaking openly about privatizing public sector, particularly when the Bajpayi government created a ministry of disinvestment. Globalization since then became a threat to reservations for Dalits. Such a constricted meaning of this monster itself was unfortunate but instead of exposing its social Darwinist character, the Dalit intellectuals fed into their ignorance and projected the idea of reservation in private sector as the mitigating measure. While the juggernaut of globalization was fast reversing the wheel of progress and pushing Dalits back into the dark ages, Dalit intellectuals busied themselves discussing reservations in private sector in their state supported seminars, feigning concerns for people. While in speech few were foolish enough to treat reservations as panacea, practically it meant the same inasmuch as none pointed out the rapid devastation of education to rural masses or paltry public health services or increasing informalization of jobs. My intervention in this discourse was to dispel the widespread misconception of the private sector, as the one who is formally trained in business management as well worked in the corporate sector both in public and private. right from the shop-floor to the board lever positions. Firstly, the amorphousness of the private sector was unsuitable to institute reservations in familiar quota form, as imagined by most people and secondly its capacity to contribute jobs was extremely limited. A US type of affirmative action could possibly be considered keeping in mind the cons of it in the present context. My overriding concern was to show that reservation in private sector was creating another mirage for the gullible Dalit masses who have squandered energies after the existing mirage of reservations, to run after. My opposition basically related to attempts of the vested interests to disorient Dalits from rejecting neoliberal globalization and accepting reservations in private sector in exchange, obviously at the behest of the ruling classes. It obviously did not amount to 'either-or' position between reservation and redistributive measures (sic), while certainly I will unequivocally stand for the latter if someone forced me to take it.

    In retrospect, I am happy and grateful to Prof Thorat that he really picked up the point and put forth his views almost in a comprehensive manner. As one who has been in forefront in seeding the demand for reservations in private sector and pushing it into consideration zone both in the governmental and corporate circle, his views are undoubtedly most important. It has created an opportunity for me to put forth my counterpoint, which was articulated hitherto in piecemeal manner through the pages of EPW and elsewhere.

    capacity to implement reservations for Dalits

    Although Prof Thorat did not contest any of my points, he did comment that there was no need to assume away the MSME part of the unorganized sector from the purview of reservations. It meant that there shall be reservations even in the farm wage employment or the seasonal labour engaged by petty contractors and industries. This sector may not be clear to the readers and hence some idea of their size and shape may not be impertinent. There are 15.64 lakh MSMEs in the country in which the Micro enterprises are 14.85 Lakh (94.94%); Small, 0.76 lakh (4.89%); and Medium, 0.03 (0.17%). In terms of ownership, there are 14.09 lakh (90.08%) proprietary units, 0.63 lakh (4.01%) partnership units, 0.43 lakh (2.78%) private companies, 0.08 lakh (0.54%) public limited companies, 0.05 lakh (0.30%) co-operatives and 0.36 lakh (2.36%) others. In terms of caste composition, there are 1.19 lakh (7.60%) SC-owned enterprises, 0.45 lakh (2.87%) ST-owned; 5.99 lakh (38.38%) OBC owned and 8.09 lakh (51.26%) owned by others. In terms of employment, Micro units employ 65.34 lakh (70.19%); Small, 23.43 lakh (25.17%); and Medium 4.32 lakh (4.64%). That means majority of them employ less than 5 employees per unit, which would include significantly self and family employment). This being the feature of the SMEs, one can imagine their capacity to implement reservations for Dalits. Notwithstanding this, there cannot be a theoretical objection to the proposition that there should be reservation in MSME sector. However, the only problem with it is that the application of AA might restrict the opportunities of Dalits to the ratio of their population. These sectors are subsistence sectors where they already preponderate. It is wrong to imagine that Dalits do not have entry into the private sector or they just do not exist there. As a rule, the hierarchy of jobs approximately corresponds to the caste hierarchy. While the bottom is preponderated by Dalits, anywhere, as one goes up they simply become scarce and vanish. Even the public sector projects the same picture despite reservations over the last seven decades; the lowest sweeper category comprise over 80 % of Dalits, but none in the top slots in Class A category (Secretary in Government, CEOs in Public sector and Banks, etc.). The only difference in the private sector is of degree; the lower labour category may have Dalits but thereafter (technicians, engineers) they may vanish. The right question to ask therefore is not the employment but the level of employment. One should not ignore the influence of supply and demand behind these numbers. The Dalits preponderate in Sweeper category because there is no supply from the non-Dalits. Now in the modern sectors of economy, where the sweepers become janitors equipped with liveries and modern gadgets, the old caste associations are disappearing; Dalits getting displaced by many non-Dalit / upper caste youths from sanitary jobs. The inertia of Dalit intellectuals may not let them see this phenomenon. As one goes higher up the organization ladder, the employers have more options to choose from and hence prejudice creeps in. An example of the modern service sector to further illustrate this point may not be out of place. It faced until recently huge shortage of qualified people, and therefore they employed people en masse irrespective of castes. Many Dalit engineers got into IT and telecom companies. But now when supply is in excess of demand, prejudices necessarily creep in. This dynamics is more pronounced in our elite institutions (NITs, IITs, IIMs, etc.). In the campus recruitments, invariably, Dalit students, with some exceptions, find lower end jobs. Many a recruiter make it a point to screen out people of the reserved category right at the beginning in the process (they could be identified with a digit in their enrolment code). It is an empirical fact that barring a few exceptions, Dalits students besides having cultural deficit (family background, proficiency in English language, mannerism, confidence, etc.) also possess lower CGPAs (I would attribute it to the psychological factors and take them as cost of reservations) and get even secularly pushed down. The simplistic discussion on reservations does not reflect awareness of this dynamics. Therefore, the application of reservations to the farm sector and the MSME sector may prove to be counterproductive. Many SMEs constitute subsidiary link in supply chains of big firms as shock absorbers, which they accomplish through contract labour. There are specialized companies that have come up in a big way to supply all grades of manpower. They facilitate these new management strategies. An employee so long as he is employed, remains on the roll of these companies but works for some other company. Once he is out of the job, he automatically ceases to be on any company's roll. This is the increasingly preferred model for the companies, to variablize their costs. How shall the reservations be implemented in such cases? The only impact of these policies will be to re-incur the stigma of caste to the already existing employees. It stands to anyone's imagination that in MSMEs, where the owners are the managers, there is no question of AA bringing in any likely change.

    redistributive policies

    Prof Thorat stressed that redistributive policies were necessary but not sufficient; they needed to be supplemented by the AA policies. He belaboured the point that special safeguards were necessary as equal distribution of endowment among the socially unequal people was no guarantee of justice. He gave several examples of countries where some kind of AA in respect of certain sections of their population is extant. In China Mao instituted AA policies in favour of China's 55 minorities; the USA has its AA policies in favour of its minorities and women; South Africa has reportedly gone to household levels in imposing conditions on the white employers that they should adopt and educate at least one black member of their household employees; Northern Ireland mandates reports on religious affiliation of employees from employers and Malaysia has reservations for its Bhumiputras, Malaya people not only in employment but also in investments and in management (i.e., in the Board of Directors) of companies. As explained above, I had not discounted the necessity of AA policies per se; I am prepared to engage with these issues in order to bring clarity to these oft-repeated arguments. When the problem is posed in terms of AA versus redistribution (sic), it necessitates clarity on what is meant by redistribution. The redistribution could range from liberal to revolutionary programme. All the patch-up, calibrated redistributive measures we speak about are in liberal realm, which as we know, may prove to be in the long term interests of the entrenched structures. The so called land reforms carried out in this country may be a case in point. It may institute AA as a buy-in for the subject people without their basic empowerment. The revolutionary redistribution on the other hand aims at serving the long term interest of the society. It would ensure basic inputs in terms of education, health and security of livelihood to all people and thereafter think if any sections needed special safeguards to bring them up expeditiously on par with the rest. Actually, this contrast itself is erroneous because, as said above, AA itself is a redistributive measure. The question reduces as such to what kind of redistributive measures? Whether to provide basics to all population and devise some extra for some who need it or to promise pieces to some sections without providing for basics to all and thereby unleashing manipulative politics? India's reservation is purely a manipulative device to fragment people along identitarian lines and engage them in internecine conflicts.  


    AA policies of other countries

    The AA policies of other countries cannot be analogized with India's reservations. The most differentiating factor is caste apart from its mechanics. The caste is a pervasive poison that manifests itself into social prejudice, which is most pronounced against the people called Dalits. The classical view of caste that it is a graded inequality is neither useful here nor it is true anymore. The caste is practically reduced to class-like formation into Dalits and non-Dalits. The AA in other countries is not against pervasive social prejudice against the beneficiaries, except perhaps the African Americans in the US. The AA in the US is in the form of diversity-promoting measure. The state of the intended beneficiaries (Hispanic, Blacks, Asians, women) can be analogized with the backward castes with ordered prejudices probably according to the shades of darkness excepting for African Americans who can be compared with India's Dalits. Although Prof Thorat said that some Black intellectuals had praise for India's quota system over their AA, the latter to my mind appears better in certain crucial respect. Much is said about the AA in the US being based on the Executive Order whereas India's reservations coming directly from the Constitution. The implication is that the AA policies can be challenged in the courts of law, whereas India's policy cannot be so challenged. I do not understand the significance of these statements. Because although at the level of principle it is true, in practice India's policy also is effected through Executive Orders and can be challenged in its operational parameters. What great difference does it make? The virtue I see in the US AA is that it assimilates many communities and ordains their fair representation. It thus tends to dilute the racial stigma associated with the African Americans. Another plus with their policy is that there is a monitoring and control mechanism with punitive powers in place whereas Indian policy has only cascading reporting structures which can only lament over deficient implementation. The AA in the US is not in the form of concession to the beneficiary, it just expects the outcome and process is to be decided by the implementing institution. While these processes have been subject to legal challenges, courts have generally validated them. Indian quota system brings in concessions and therefore explicitly induces grudge in others, adding fuel to the existing fire of caste prejudices.

    Chinese  case    

    China has AA policies called Youhui zhengce, for its 55 recognized minorities groups, ranging in population from a few thousand to maximum 17 million against a single ethnic majority of Han Chinese who account for its 91.59% population. However, their traditional homelands occupy over 65 per cent of the total Chinese territory, which are not only strategically located but are also resource rich. These strategic and economic imperatives impelled China to continue basically the same tenets of nationality policy (alternative to Leninist national self-determination) with minor modifications. They have their own histories and culture and may be compared with our tribals, physically segregated from the mainstream. There is social prejudice against them quite like tribals in India but no social stigma like caste. The policies began in 1949 but explicitly operated since the mid-1980s, and were modeled after those by the Soviet Union. Three principles inform them: equality for national minorities, territorial autonomy, and equality for all languages and cultures. Entire tax collected in minority regions can be spent locally. Minorities receive proportional representation in local government.The Chinese government encourages business to hire minorities and offers no-interest loans to businesses operated by minorities. Prominent government posts may be filled with "model" citizens who are also minorities.Minority students applying to universities receive bonus points on the National Higher Education Entrance Examination. There is a system of universities exclusively for minority students. The minority families can officially have two children instead of one demanded of Han people and in practice ignores families having even more. It is said that these policies are prompted by the analysis of the collapse of Soviet failure which was attributed to ignorance of minorities. The AA in China takes the form of preserving their cultural identities, concessions to provide them with the best quality education, etc. But these policies were instituted over and above the democratic reconstruction of China and not a patchy solution merely to woo the minorities. Many other liberal democracies have some kind of AA, but they are of type to take care of historical asymmetries in the populations. Malaysia's Bhumiputra polices are openly racially discriminatory in favour of native majority comprising Malay, natives of Sabah and Sarawak, comprising comprehensive measures to uplift the entire population. It was meant to eliminate power asymmetry in Malaysian society which used to manifest into riots between dominating Malaysian Chinese and local Malays. In these and rather most other countries where some kind of AA exists is in the nature of evening out such secular asymmetries.

    continuum of inequality

    In India, with the continuum of inequality of the caste system made such AA inapplicable, except for, as some people advocate, to parcel out everything in accordance with the population of all castes. The AA policy in India, therefore, in order to be viable, had to be exceptional and aiming at not the power asymmetry but its root in the deep-drawn social prejudice against Dalits. I think, this conceptual difference is utmost important to avoid mistaken analogy between India and other countries.   

    When the colonial rulers instituted reservation policy in favour of Dalits, it, although not described in so many words, had a basic feature of being an exceptional measure for exceptional people. When the transfer of power took place, could this policy be discontinued? Although the theoretical answer to this question could be affirmative, none having political acumen could accept it. Politically, it would have been the riskiest folly on the part of the rulers. If so, the reservations were not to be freshly instituted; they were principally stabilized in the colonial times. More importantly, the colonial powers, despite their zest for marshaling everything to serve their divide and rule strategy, created an administration category of 'scheduled caste' to supersede the religion-ordained caste of the Untouchables. There was a clear opportunity for the new ruling classes, who took over from the British, to outlaw castes. But they hoodwinked people outlawing untouchability which the fond song of all the upper caste reformers best represented by Gandhi but preserved castes with tacit alibi of doing social justice to the lower castes. Now even a child could see that with castes surviving untouchability cannot go, which is what surveys after survey right from 1950s to just the previous day (NCAER report) reveal. They had not stopped at that; they diluted it by extending it to potentially all and sundry. They created a separate schedule for the tribals to have ditto provisions of the scheduled castes. Notwithstanding the lack of foolproof criteria to identify people in this schedule for tribes, they could have been merged into the existing schedule (suitably renaming it) and thereby diluted the caste stigma associated with the schedule for Dalits (because the tribals did not have caste). They haven't even stopped at that. They would create a vague provision that the state would identify the 'backward classes' (read castes) so as to extend similar provisions in future. It verily amounted to constructing a can of caste worms the lid of which could be opened at an opportune time in future as the Prime Minister VP Singh did in 1990. The entire schema about castes being kept alive comes out clear when we see similar scheming around religion, the other weapon to divide people. The Constitution scrupulously avoided the term secular that could create a separating wall between religion and politics with an alibi to have space for the state to carry out religion-related reforms. The only reform that one could imagine was in the form of passing the Commission of Sati (Prevention) Act, 1987 in the wake of burning of Roop Kanwar on her husband's pyre. It is important to understand these matters because they directly cross the emancipation agenda of Dalits.  


    generational loss suffered by Dalits

    Prof Thorat repeatedly stated that the reservation policies were meant as compensation for the historical discrimination suffered by Dalits. I do not understand how it accounts for the generational loss suffered by Dalits. If the intention is to compensate for the sufferings of Dalits over last 2000 years, India may have to sell itself million times over to compensate them.  I do not think any of the AA policies in vogue in the world aim at really compensating their present generations for the sufferings of their previous generations. It is pure rhetoric; neither it is possible nor is it even warranted. I am not aware of this kind of articulation in justification of our reservation. Logically, AA policies in favour of some social groups expect to promote its development with such a pace that it comes on par with others over a reasonable time frame. Malaysian policy in favour of Malays has achieved this feat within less than four decades. In China, the minority nationalities have similarly elevated to the levels of Han majority. How does the reservation policy of India fares on this count? The representation of Dalits in government services cannot be taken as proxy of development of the entire community but even there, the reservations did not reach the prescribed levels. If one peeps into the categorizations of these services, one would smell bigger rot. For example, the Class A job itself has a dozen rungs and the 11-12% representation reached by Dalits (against prescribed 15%) would be mostly around its bottom, revealing the conspicuous absence of Dalits at the top. The hugely prejudiced organizational dynamics against Dalits remains without remedy. The dynamics subsumes promoting pliant mediocrity of Dalits to crush the competent ones leaving the balance mass as passengers. It surely contradicts the notion that all Dalits suffer caste discrimination. A tiny fraction of Dalit population benefit from reservations and as such has little influence on the development of Dalits as a whole. Our reservation system does not appear to have even the objective of bringing Dalits on par with others. They envisage merely prospective equitable share of the public sphere. In other words, their historical development deficit is to be carried on in perpetually. In other words, it envisages Dalits to be relatively backward forever. If the objective behind reservation had been to bring Dalits on par with others, in the present framework, the reservation should have been logically applicable to all spheres of life and at the rate much higher than the ratio of their population.  None of these issues bother Dalit intellectuals. I have heard protagonists of reservation saying that they enable Dalit participation in decision making process; they enable power sharing. It is utter naiveté to assume that mere existence ensures participation in decision making. The accumulation of Dalits around the bottom of the highest class and the organizational dynamics obviate any such participation. The participation however is allowed for the select Dalits, as demo pieces, who carry the writ of their masters. These days another term, 'inclusion', got into academic discourses. It belongs to neoliberal taxonomy devised by the Bretton wood institutions. It has overshadowed discourse of equality of the Dalit movement and is rather international equivalent of RSS's samarasata.  

    terminability embedded

    One could look into the policy per say, the way in which it is framed. Any such exceptional policy has to have terminability embedded within it. When can one say that the objective behind the policy (which itself remain unstated) are accomplished and therefore decide that the policy be terminated? Whose responsibility it is to see that it is terminated? Today, the entire society is divided into two warring camps: one comprising the beneficiaries wanting it for eternity and the others not hopeful of getting them, comprising the upper castes, wanting it be terminated at once. As stated above, there is no arrester to the prejudicial behavior of the society against the Dalits except for the assumed force of the state, which cannot really perpetually act against the society at large. Therefore, the policy could have been formulated in such a way as to make the society realize that it has a disability that it cannot treat its own members equal and hence the policy to help it to overcome that disability. To the Dalits, it would simultaneously communicate that it is in their larger interest to do away with their historically stigmatized identity and aim at larger progress in society. Needless to say, this conception only applied to the Dalits who were the stigmatized people because of the caste system and may be, the tribals, who though not belonging to the caste society, are someway looked upon as inferior by the society. This should have been the conception of reservation in India, which could have convinced the larger society of its rationale and eliminated the communal strife; motivated it to overcome its disability at so as to remove this anomaly at the earliest possible time. On the side of the Dalits, they would also seek to discard their stigmatized identity at the earliest possible time and come forward to demand the end of the policy. By doing so, they could aspire to make far more progress than what reservation promised them. Such secularized formulation would have eliminated stigma and preserved self-esteem and confidence of Dalits.


    within the Dalit castes

    Reservations are essentially a redistributive measure not only in the society but also within the Dalit castes. It needed to ensure that the benefits of reservations should reach to the needy and not to an increasingly smaller number of beneficiaries. It could be easily accomplished with conceptual integrity. Since reservations benefitted individuals and their own families, family (husband, wife and their children) should be the unit of recognition and not the caste. Once a family availed reservation, it should get dampened in its chances to get further reservations, thereby preempting beneficiaries from monopolizing reservation benefits at the cost of marginalization of the balance people. If such a principle had been followed, it would have secularized the operation of reservation policy and ensured that the benefits are reached equitably across sub-castes within the SC-category. As against this, the reservation policy as it exists is grossly ill formulated. It does not spell out premise and what it tacitly conveys is that reservations were warranted because Dalits (and later tribals and backward castes) were 'socially and educationally' backward implying thereby that the state would help them out to rise. It naturally gave rise to an ill feeling in the rest of the society that its resources were unduly wasted over undeserving people as there is nothing in policy that communicates to them that they are equal but are prejudiced against by the society for certain historical wrongs. The policy did not have assurance that it would end with some goal was met. As it exists it appears irrationally perennial; creating vested interests in the subject people to claim backwardness and correspondingly aggravating the ill feeling among others. It does not motivate anyone to mend the prevailing situation that warranted this policy. In a backward country like India, backwardness could not be the criterion for any such policy. Any and every caste could claim it by playing up backwardness and thus strengthen caste consciousness among its members, paradoxically against the Dalits, identified with reservations. The reality glaringly testifies to this fact. The policy thus can be seen to have aggravated the problem instead of solving it. If atrocities are taken as good proxy for caste consciousness, which I think they are, then there is incontrovertible evidence that castes are far stronger today than ever before. The atrocities by the police own records have galloped to stratospheric levels of 40,000 today and have gone far more vicious in their ferocity. While the ruling classes have systematically worked through their policies towards this end but there is no denying the fact that the reservation policy has its lion's share. Sadly, the grudge of the society against the Dalits (it is important to understand that although the so called OBCs get more reservations, at least 27 %, it is only Dalits who get identified with reservations) translates into atrocities on the lower strata of the Dalits that lives in villages nearly cut off from reservations. Such is the prowess of caste consciousness that poor rural Dalits as well as the poor non-Dalits who perpetrate atrocities do not realize that they identify with their caste elites against the people of their own class.


    increasingly tinier section of beneficiaries

    Another flaw of the reservation policy is that it does not flow to those who need it most and tend to create increasingly tinier section of beneficiaries. It surely aggravates class divide among Dalits which in absence of class idiom, is identified as sub caste division. It is not realized that the most populous sub-caste of Dalits in every region reflects more adaptability, more entrepreneurship and more agitation compared to other less populous sub-castes, not because there is something special with them but just because their population could not have a specific caste vocation. They had thus low valence with village unlike other sub-castes which had their caste vocation and thus a stake in village. These were the people who grabbed opportunities that came their way relatively faster than others and later followed Ambedkar. Ambedkar himself could be seen as the product of this process. It is natural that that the populous castes like Mahars, Chamars, Malas, Pariahs, etc. reflect more progress than others. But it is foolish to imagine that they are uniformly progressed. It is only a few families that benefitted earlier kept on benefitting, keeping others at bay.  One may easily find similar degree of inequality among them as could be found among other sub-castes. It is, however, true that those families that appears to have benefitted from reservations happen to be from these populous Dalit castes. It is not by any misdoing either of those casters or the implementers but it is by the very design of the policy. While the argument that the majority Dalits castes such as Mahars and Malas have monopolized all the reservation benefits is thus wrong, it provides space for politicians to exploit it and divide Dalits along the sub-caste lines. The Mala-Madiga syndrome is thus intrinsic to the current policy which is corollary of the basic anomaly that reservation benefits an individual but is attributed to entire caste. Its fall out was the demand by the other sub-castes for sub-categorization to divide reservation among them, decimating the 'Dalit' that symbolized their unified identity. This demand, duly prompted and supported by the ruling classes has spread all over conclusively defeating the Ambedkarian project. It is sad that a plethora of writings on reservations or Dalit movement could never note these flaws.   

    actual employment base

    Such is the obsession of Dalits for reservations that they do not want to understand that the actual employment base for reservation has been eroding from 1997 onwards. I have spoken with the statistics in numerous public meetings and seminars, that over a single decade (from 1997 to 2007) there has been a decline of over 1.7 million (and it is going on thereafter) in the public employment. It clearly meant that in net terms there has been negative growth in reservations, meaning thereby that by 1997 reservations de facto have come to an end. But no one wants to stomach this harsh reality. The problem with the middle class Dalits is that their sole agenda has been reservations and they cannot imagine their social engagement without reservations. Beyond these arguments, I have presented some historical facts to provoke people into rethinking their obsession for reservations. In 1936, when the British made the 'schedule' of the Untouchables, the criteria of untouchability worked well all over the country except for the two regions, viz., South and East. In the South, with the criteria of untouchability, nearly 70% people would enter the schedule but in the East, none would come in. They adopted additional criteria to normalize the population to the national average. In process, many castes such as Ezhawa, Gounders, Nadars, who were Untouchables escaped being included into the schedule. Broadly speaking, their condition was not significantly better than that of Dalits. If one takes stock of the comparative progress these two communities (ones who escaped the schedule and Dalits who got scheduled) one cannot miss out the fact that those who escaped the schedule, and hence the stigma of Dalithood, made thousand time more progress than Dalits who had reservations!   

    I am aware that the vested interests would simplistically label me as anti-reservationist. I cannot compete with their irrationality. But in deference to it I can certainly reiterate my position that given the societal prejudice, much of it could be attributed to reservations itself, some kind of affirmative action is necessary in their favour. But if the current model is to be operated, I would prefer Dalits discard it and instead demand from the state due prenatal care to every needy pregnant woman so that she brings a healthy child into the world, and thereafter equitable inputs of child care, education through neighborhood schools, and health care; in exchange of reservations. Let them forget the past and focus on their coming generations to fight it out. Let them understand that caste is their bane and not the boon; the earliest they annihilate it, better it is for their future.

    #চুয়াড় বিদ্রোহ@Chuar Rebellion: Midnapur Bankura legacy of freedom and Resistance!

    Palash Biswas

    CPI-M leader Binoy Konar in Kolkata said: "We will not sit silent in Nandigram. We will hit back if they adopt violent means." The battle lines were thus drawn in Nandigram.


    Millions of farmers in Latin America, Africa and south Asia are, at present, direct victims of the wondrous regime set up by the WTO and world order sustained by governments worldwide led by ruling hegemony of ruling dynasties in desguise of democracy and their agenicies all on name of growth,development and humanitarian cause and projected mass movement . With the gradual dismantling of quantitative restrictions and tariff barriers, the peasantry in the poorer countries is facing rack and ruin. A whole range of farm commodities can be offered for trading by the technologically advanced Western countries at prices that would not cover farmers' costs in the poor continents. One reason is the neo-colonial edict: some are more equal than others; subsidies are out for farmers in India, Pakistan or Bangladesh, but not for those in the US, or in France.


    But agrarian Midnapur and Jangal Mahal in Bengal have a different legacy of resistance to reject the Global Order,indiscriminate industrializaion,urbanisation and infrastructure.I am just drawing your attention to this humanscape of continuous resistance inherent.


    I returned from the Coastal Bengal on Friday afternoon to disturb you only.Initially we planned to see the Bay of Bengal waves on Digh Coast as Sabita Babu was eager to see it which we did not see for last 25 years in Bengal.But it turned to be a visit to the Midnapur legacy of freedom and resistance from Tamralipta,Chuar revolt,Hijli concentration camp and Nandigram united!


    We spent a full day and full night in IIT campus in Kharagpur with Anand and Rama Teltumbde.It was a rare opportunity to meet the only grand daughter of Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar.Ramaji is named after her grandma.But the couple opt for objective study of society and time.


    We are thankful to Ramaji that she hosted us so superbly and cooked delicious dishes for us as the hostess shared her time so generously and we all know her excellence and sharpness not to mention Anand.


    Anand played the guide role to show us the Hijli barracks and the postmodern museum with latest projects on display.As usal we discussed each and every issue and we would share all the shades of discourse and discussion with proper reference and context.


    Midnapur is quite different from rest of Bengal,rest of India.So the tribal India,which it makes with Jharkhand,dandakarnya,Orrissa,MP,Maharashtra and Andhra are quite different in culture,psyche,linguistics and history.We have brute apathy against them!We may include tribal Gujarat and rajasthan along with UP and Bihar in this list.Then entire North East.


    For Example as Warren Hastings failed to quell the Chuar uprisings. The district administrator to Bankura wrote in his diary in 1787 that the Chuar revolt was so widespread and fierce that temporarily, the Company's rule had vanished from the district of Bankura. Finally in 1799 the Governor General, Wellesley crushed these uprisings by a pincer attack. An area near Salboni in Midnapore district, in whose mango grove many rebels were hung from trees by the British, is still known by local villagers as "the heath of the hanging upland", Phansi Dangar Math. Some years later under the leadership of Jagabandhu the paymaster or Bakshi (of the infantry of the Puri Raja), there was the well-known widespread Paik or retainer uprising in Orissa. In 1793 the Governor General Cornwallis initiated in the entire Presidency of Bengal a new form of Permanent Settlement of revenue to loyal landlords. This led to misfortunes for the toiling peasantry: in time they would protest against this as well.

    First Chuar Rebellion (1767.)


    But the world owes much to rebels who would dare to argue in the face of the pontiff and insist that he is not infallible.


    -Babasaheb Ambedkar


    In the fight for Swaraj you fight with the whole nation on your side...[but to annihilate the caste], you have to fight against the whole nation—and that too, your own. But it is more important than Swaraj. There is no use having Swaraj, if you cannot defend it. More important than the question of defending Swaraj is the question of defending the Hindus under the Swaraj. In my opinion, it is only when Hindu Society becomes a casteless society that it can hope to have strength enough to defend itself. Without such internal strength, Swaraj for Hindus may turn out to be only a step towards slavery. Good-bye, and good wishes for your success.

    ১৭৬০ সালে বর্ধমান চাকলার অবশিষ্টাংশের সঙ্গে বিষ্ণুপুরও ব্রিটিশ শাসনাধীনে আসে। মারাঠা অত্যাচারের পর ছিয়াত্তরের মন্বন্তরএখানকার অর্থনীতিকে ধ্বংসের মুখে ঠেলে দেয়। জনসংখ্যা হ্রাস পায়, শস্য উৎপাদন কমে যায় এবং আইন শৃঙ্খলার অবনতি ঘটে। অতীতের শক্তিশালী রাজ্য বিষ্ণুপুর কেবল এক জমিদারিতে রূপান্তরিত হয়। ১৭৮৭ সালে, বিষ্ণুপুর বীরভূমেরঅন্তর্ভুক্ত হয়। সিউড়িকেসদর করে এটি একটি পৃথক জেলার মর্যাদা লাভ করে। বিষ্ণুপুর অঞ্চলে বিদ্রোহের পরিস্থিতি সৃষ্টি হয়। এই বিদ্রোহ চুয়াড় বিদ্রোহ নামে পরিচিত। ১৭৯৩ সালে বাঁকুড়া পৃথক জেলা হিসেবে আত্মপ্রকাশ করে এবং বর্ধমান বিভাগের অন্তর্ভুক্ত হয়।[১০]

    চুয়াড় বিদ্রোহ[সম্পাদনা]

    অষ্টাদশ শতাব্দীর শেষ ভাগে বাঁকুড়া জেলার রায়পুরে চুয়াড় বিদ্রোহের সূত্রপাত ঘটে। এই বিদ্রোহের নেতা ছিলেন রায়পুরের পূর্বতন জমিদার দুর্জন সিংহ। প্রায় ১,৫০০ অনুগামী নিয়ে তিনি প্রবল প্রতিরোধ গড়ে তোলেন। পুলিশ এই বিদ্রোহ দমনে ব্যর্থ হয়। এই সময় বাঁকুড়া জঙ্গল মহলেরঅন্তর্গত ছিল। চুয়াড় বিদ্রোহ চলাকালীনই বাঁকুড়া ইস্ট ইন্ডিয়া কোম্পানির বাণিজ্যিক উন্নতির পথে বিশেষ গুরুত্বপূর্ণ হয়ে ওঠে। সোনামুখীতেকোম্পানির কুঠি গড়ে ওঠে। এই কুঠির ৩১টি অধীনস্থ কুঠি ছিল, যার একটি পাত্রসায়রএবং অপর দুটি বীরভূমের সুরুলইলামবাজারেগড়ে ওঠে। ১৮৩২ সালে চুয়াড় বিদ্রোহের ফলস্রুতিতে ১৮৩৩ সালে জঙ্গল মহল ভেঙে দেওয়া হয়। বিষ্ণুপুর বর্ধমানের সঙ্গে যুক্ত হয়। জেলার অধিকাংশ অংশ মানভূমেরঅঙ্গীভূত হয়। এই অঞ্চলটি সেই সময় নর্থ-ওয়েস্ট ফ্রন্টিয়ার এজেন্সি নামে পরিচিত ছিল। ১৮৭২ সালে, সোনামুখী, ইন্দাস, কোতুলপুর, শেরগড় ও সেনপাহাড়ি বর্ধমানের অন্তর্ভুক্ত হয়।[১০]


    We are imprisoned in caste system and religious identities and are subjected to infinite displacement,infinite persecution and infinite repression in  a military state of Salwa Judum and AFSPA ruled by the marketing agents of thousands and thousands East India Companies.


    But indigenous aborigin agrarian communities were never enslaved contrary to the bahujan ideology of Hajaro sal ki gulami!


    Agrarian,  indigenous and aborigin communities always revolted to make this earth better for harvesting,better for production, better for the toiling masses and they sacrificed.


    Yes,it is the Great Indian saga of freedom and resistance and at the same time it is the legacy of Midnapur!Bankura and Jangl Mhala and Central India along with entire Northeast.


    In Midnapore, South Bihar, Chotanagpur, Orissa etc. there were repeated Chuar rebellions. The Jungle Mahal of Midnapore, the Hoj of Singbhum, Kol and Munda in Chotanagpur, Bhumij of Manbhum, the Santhals of Rajmahal, the Khasias of Assam, the Khonds of Orissa gave no rest to the government by their repeated rebellions. Under the leadership of Jagannath Dhal of Dhalbhum, the Chuars rebelled, and Jagannath Dhal was joined by the kings of Kailapal,.

    Dolka, Barbhum etc. in 1768. The zamindars of Nawabganj and Jharia stopped payment of revenue to the English. In 1832 the Hoj of Singbhum rebelled under the leadership of Ganganarayan, attacked the government office and occupied Barbhum for some time. The Adibasis of Chotanagpur, Singbhum, Malbhum rebelled at that time. The Hoj and the Munda communities also joined in the rebellion. At about the same time the government transferred lands of the Adibasis to the Sikhs and the Muslims. The Adibasis of Ranchi, Singbhum, Hfizaribag, Palamau, and parts of Manbhum rebelled against the British in protest.



    I visited Midnapur inhibited by the people of different linguistics and it has always been  a loud scenario with the enriched legacy of freedom and resistance.


    The latest resistance in and around Nandigram is now history in itself.Tamralipta dates back in ancient India.


    Hijli concentration barracks have been transformed in to IIT Kharagpur representing not only Midnapur East and West but entire Jangal Mahal in Bengal,Jharkhand,Orrissa and even Chhatisgargh.


    For example,the Santhals had migrated from Hazaribag and Manbhum to the hilly tracts of Rajmahal. But taking advantage of their poverty and simplicity the money lenders started exploiting them. The reve­nue collectors, railway employees were carrying on repression on them and even violated the honour of their women. For these reasons they rebelled against the government officers, police, money-lenders etc.

    They became convinced that unless they could wrest their lands from the government there would be no end of their sufferings. In 1855 the Santhals rebelled and began to fight against the army with bows and arrows and naturally were defeated. But their rebellion was partially successful. The Santhal-inhabited areas were formed into a separate Pargana called Santhal Pargana and a special type of administration was introduced there.

    Orissa came under the British control in 1803 but the local rulers did not accept the British rule without opposition. In 1804 the king of Khurda revolted against the British but the revolt was suppressed with a heavy hand by the government. But within a short time the Paiks of Khurda attacked the revenue collectors and the police and set the government treasury ablaze. In 1817 after prolonged repressive measures the government restored control over Khurda. Puri still continued to disobey the government. It was in 1825 that the revolt in Khurda was finally suppressed and the king of Khurda pen­sioned off and allowed to live in Cuttack.


    I would be talking on every point and would deal with every phase.The religious polarization is all about the ethnic cleansing of this ninety nine percent by the ONE percent rulers and we dare not to raise our voice of dissent.But Midnapur had been always in resistance mode!


    We have to stand rock solid if we wish to change the scenario of exclusion,ethnic cleansing,inherent inequality and injustice justified by Identity Civil War!


    The Scnario:Apart from the RED and Blue majority masses in India,the offspring of Zamindari and indiscriminate urbanization killing the indigenous production system and Indian Economy,the ONE Percent ruling class has captured all resources and assets as the ninety percent masses are deprived of right to knowledge,right to arms,right to worship and right to property and the women are treated as SEX  Slaves and the children of these masses are treated as Bonded.


    I have spoken on this turnaround in my latest videos how the aesthetics became so urban and how Bengali intelligentsia had not supported the BHASHA Biplab in  nineties,first struggle of freedom in 1857,Indigo Revolt,Santhal and Bheel and Munda insurrections.Not enough, the dubbed the original uprising right in 1750 to 1760 as Chuar Rebellion as a criminal offence and the original uprising of Indian peasantry led by Hindu,Muslim and Tribal leaders as sanyasi Vidroh.


    Here I begin the Saga Freedom with the First Ever Resistance against East India Company ,the Chuar Rebellion,CHUAR VODROH!The people belonging to a different humanscape, different linguistics and different aesthetics!


    Chuar rebellion


    Chuar rebellion[edit]

    Towards the end of the 18th century certain portions of the district around Raipur was affected by the Chuar rebellion. The leader of the rebels was Durjan Singh, a former zamindar of Raipur. He had a following of about 1,500 men and created havoc in certain areas. The police force was simply not in a position to control the situation. At the time Bankura appears to have been part ofJungle Mahals. While the Chuars continued to be a menace, Bankura played an important role in the commercial department of East India Company.Sonamukhi had a head factory with 31 subordinate ones, including one atPatrasayar, as well as atSurul andIlambazar in Birbhum. The disturbances of the Chuars in 1832 in the western part of the district lead to the disbandment of the Jungle Mahals in 1833. While Bishnupur was transferred to Burdwan, most of the district formed a part ofManbhum and what was known as North-west Frontier Agency. In 1872, the parganas of Sonamukhi, Indas, Kotulpur, Shergarh and Senpahari were transferred to Burdwan.[10]

    Wiki pages on Midnapur and Bankura mentioned only.

    INSURRECTION:The act or an instance of open revolt against civil authority or a constituted government.

    Santhal Revolt is defined an Insurrection! Insurgency is synonymous to Insurrection. If Santhal revolt is an act of Insurrection, what do you mean by Insurgency in Modern India?

    All nationality movements in India have been always defined as Insurgency.

    In accordance with this definition the Resistance of peasants in Nandigram may well be defined as Insurrection!

    Oldest revolt:Chuar Rebellion Area: Midnapore, Bakura districts of West Bengal Important Leader : Durjan Singh The Famine, enhanced taxes, oppressive demands and economic distress cuased the revolt in the Midnapore and Bakura district of West Bengal for several times. In 1799-1800, there was a revolt under Durjan Singh, who was a former Zamindar. His 1500 followers created a havoc. The rebellion was suppressed with utmost cruelty.

    The Chuars lived in Jungle Mahal of north-western Midnapur. Basically farmers and hunters, they also worked as paiks under local zamindars. They received tax-free land instead of salaries.


    When the Company imposed huge tax burden on zamindars, they revolted, and the paiks and Chuars joined in. The uprising continued for around three decades from 1768-69 to 1799.

    • In 1768, Jagannath Singh, the zamindar of Ghatshila or the king of Dhalbhum, first went up in arms, backed by local zamindars, and 50,000 Chuars. The frightened government returned the zamindari to Jagannath.

    • In 1771, Chuars rose again, led by Dhadkar Shyamganjan. They failed this time.

    • The third phase of rebellion was in 1783-84 and 1789-90.

    • The most significant uprising was the Durjol Singh led revolt in 1789-90 which was brutally put down by the govern­ment. Prof. Narahari Kabiraj says, "The revolt covered Midnapur, Bankura, Birbhum and Dhalbhum. It was a spontaneous and extensive uprising of poor and lower classes. Peasants were the pillars of this movement."

    ताकि सनद रहे Babasaheb Ambedkar said...In the fight for Swaraj you fight with the whole nation on your side...[but to annihilate the caste], you have to fight against the whole nation—and that too, your own. But it is more important than Swaraj.

    But the world owes much to rebels who would dare to argue in the face of the pontiff and insist that he is not infallible.


    -Babasaheb Ambedkar


    In the fight for Swaraj you fight with the whole nation on your side...[but to annihilate the caste], you have to fight against the whole nation—and that too, your own. But it is more important than Swaraj. There is no use having Swaraj, if you cannot defend it. More important than the question of defending Swaraj is the question of defending the Hindus under the Swaraj. In my opinion, it is only when Hindu Society becomes a casteless society that it can hope to have strength enough to defend itself. Without such internal strength, Swaraj for Hindus may turn out to be only a step towards slavery. Good-bye, and good wishes for your success.

    फिलहाल हम गुलामी का फंडा तो़ड़ने में लगे हैं।


    जैसी आशंका महात्मा ज्योतिबा फूल और गुरुचांद ठाकुर को थी कि आजादी के बाद मुकम्मल मनुस्मृति राज होगा,जैसा कि बाल गंगाधर तिलका का स्वराज पेशवा राज है और जैसे कि बाबासाहेब अंबेडकर के मुताबिक आजादी से ज्यादा जरुरी जाति उन्मूलन का लक्ष्य है,जाति उन्मूलन के बिना फिर हिंदू हिंदू राष्ट्र  है,आज का समामाजिक यथार्थ यही है।


    हजारों सालों के दरम्यान,आर्यों,पठान मुगलो और अंग्रेजों के राज में भारत के आदिवासी दलित शूद्र आवाम ने कभी गुलामी मंजूर  नहीं की।


    1757 के बाद से लगातार उनकी लड़ाई जारी रही है।


    उन्होंने राजा रजवाड़ोें और जमींदारों,साहूकारों और महाजनों के खिलाफ ,पूंजी और बाजार के खिलाफ लगातार लड़ाई की है।


    इस विरासत से बेखबर हम लोग हजारों साल की गुलामी की कथा बांचकरअंबेडकर एटीएम से आवाम का खून पसीना दुह रहे हैं जबकि हर अनैतिक,हर अधार्मिक,हर कुकृत्य, बलात्कार, नरसंहार और बेदखली को कानूनी और जायज बताने का लूटतंत्र विकास है।



    हमारे पास वक्त है नहीं और न मुझे कोई छापता है।

    इससे पहले भी तमाम आदरणीय लोगों ने आलेख मंगवाकर छापा नहीं है।

    वैसे भी हम बहुजनों का कर्मफल कालजयी होता नहीं है।
    मैं अब अपने मौज के लिए लिखता हूं।जनता की चीज जनता को वापस करता हूं।

    किसी को कायदे की कोई चीज लगे तो वे जैसा चाहे उसका इस्तेमाल अपने विवेक के मुताबिक कर सकते हैं।जनहित में हमारी तरफ से हरी झंडी है।कामर्शियल हम कभी लिखते नहीं है और न उनके अगवाड़े पिछवाड़े इतना दम है कि हमें झेल सकें।

    अलग से लेख भेजने में असमर्थ हूं क्योंकि हम कब तक जी पायेंगे इसका ठिकाना नहीं है और बहुत काम अभी बाकी है।

    कृपया मेरा लिखा सारा का सारा नेट पर या हस्तक्षेप पर उपलब्ध है,आप जो चाहे निकाल लें।
    न चाहे तो हमारी कोई शिकायत नहीं है।

    हस्तक्षेप भी हमारे आलेख की वजहसे क्रैश हो रहा है और हमारे लिखे बिना हस्तक्षेप को जनसुनवाई मंच बनाये रखना हमारी सर्वोच्च प्रथमिकता है।

    मेरा लिखा बोला जहं भी लीक हो सकता है,वह जनता के हवाले है।

    Millions of farmers in Latin America, Africa and south Asia are, at present, direct victims of the wondrous regime set up by the WTO and world order sustained by governments worldwide led by ruling hegemony of ruling dynasties in desguise of democracy and their agenicies all on name of growth,development and humanitarian cause and projected mass movement . With the gradual dismantling of quantitative restrictions and tariff barriers, the peasantry in the poorer countries is facing rack and ruin. A whole range of farm commodities can be offered for trading by the technologically advanced Western countries at prices that would not cover farmers' costs in the poor continents. One reason is the neo-colonial edict: some are more equal than others; subsidies are out for farmers in India, Pakistan or Bangladesh, but not for those in the US, or in France.


    But agrarian Midnapur and Jangal Mahal in Bengal have a different legacy of resistance to reject the Global Order,indiscriminate industrializaion,urbanisation and infrastructure.I am just drawing your attention to this humanscape of continuous resistance inherent.


    or Example as Warren Hastings failed to quell the Chuar uprisings. The district administrator to Bankura wrote in his diary in 1787 that the Chuar revolt was so widespread and fierce that temporarily, the Company's rule had vanished from the district of Bankura. Finally in 1799 the Governor General, Wellesley crushed these uprisings by a pincer attack. An area near Salboni in Midnapore district, in whose mango grove many rebels were hung from trees by the British, is still known by local villagers as "the heath of the hanging upland", Phansi Dangar Math. Some years later under the leadership of Jagabandhu the paymaster or Bakshi (of the infantry of the Puri Raja), there was the well-known widespread Paik or retainer uprising in Orissa. In 1793 the Governor General Cornwallis initiated in the entire Presidency of Bengal a new form of Permanent Settlement of revenue to loyal landlords. This led to misfortunes for the toiling peasantry: in time they would protest against this as well.

    Baba Ramdev is a business magnet who changed the game with vedic flavour!

    Why Patanjali may be 'injurious' to health of listed FMCG rivals!

    Palash Biswas

      The products of Patanjali, run by controversial yoga guru Baba Ramdev, are selling so fast that analysts are saying that its 20 billion-rupee($307 million) revenues this year could pose a threat to established, age-old Indian consumer brands such as Dabur, Emami and Marico.Oct 15, 2015

    Baba Ramdev in Yoga mode activated apps religious to strengthen the FMCG business branded as Patanjali which the multinational companies might not ever do despite business friendly FDI governance.Rather we may chose to welcome the Desi Enterprise full of devotion as well as nationalism which makes the brand way ahead of other rivals and it is Hindutva all the way.


    No one may dare to challenge the quality of the product nor any product so sacred be it be Aata or Ghee or any consumer commodity,no one dare to raise a voice as CPIM leader Brinda Karat failed to support the  workers of the religious corporate company and faced the anger of the millions of devptee.


    Devotion has become the greatest shield for business interest so no question to have any investigation if there is some complaint rather the complainer should face the consequence!


    We have got the international Yoga divas thanks to Baba Ramdeva.He is also a very very successful King Maker better than our comrades or Lalu Prasad yadav.


    Baba united religion, business, jati,media and corporate to get Dr.Manmohan Singh reelected.Since he gave up the God of reforms he had to eat the dust as Baba joined the RSS bandwagon.


    Baba is not answaerabl to tax agencies as his rivals are.

    Thus I share this story to understand better Baba Bibhuti!


    Why Patanjali may be 'injurious' to health of listed FMCG rivals

    1 / 29
    MoneyControl

    "What makes Patanjali a credible threat is that it does not try to beat other FMCG companies at their game; it changes the game for them," says the report, titled Patanjali: Injurious to Listed FMCG Health authored by IIFL's Percy Panthaki.

    The company, it says, enjoys several advantages over peers. It is associated with a personality followed by millions: Baba Ramdev. The combined with other factors such as price discounts, the appeal of the ayurvedic/herbal/natural platform and a desire to consume Indian brands makes for a winning formula.

    The IIFL report says that the company may gain double-digit market share in 10 of 25 categories it analysed, including Ayurvedic medicine, honey, ghee and chyawanprash.

    The companies that are expected to be impacted the most from Patanjali's are Colgate, whose revenues could be hit by 7.8 percent. "Patanjali has already garnered more than 5 percent market share and we believe that as general/modern trade distribution ramps up, market share would further increase to 13 percent by FY20," says the brokerage.

    Dabur could be next, given Patanjali's overlap with Dabur products, such as Ayurvedic medicines, chyawanprash, honey, hair and skin care.

    "In some of the categories such as honey and Chyawanprash Patanjali has a high right to win as it resonates with Patanjali's core brand values of health and wellness," according to the report.

    Other FMCG players such as ITC and United Spirits may escape the Patanjali onslaught, considering that they dominate product lines (cigarettes and liquor, respectively) that the latter considers unhealthy and against its philosophy. Market leader HUL can take a moderate hit, the analyst reckons.

    However, the company's sterling growth has prompted rivals into action. HUL, for instance, has already revamped its Ayurveda brand 'Lever Ayush' to re-position itself in the naturals space. Dabur has decided to ramp up its line-up of Ayurvedic products significantly.

    In a recent interview with CNBC-TV18, Dabur CEO Sunil Duggal said it was too soon to evaluate Patanjali's impact on its business, and expressed belief the company would hold up to competition.

    But as the brokerage report says, the battle lines are clearly drawn.

      गागाभट्टाने शिवाजी महाराजांचा राज्याभिषेक करण्यास नकार दिला त्याबद्दल आर एस एस माफी मागणार का ? 
      शिवाजी महाराजांना दैवी रुप देणारया आर एस एस चा जाहीर निषेध !

      आर एस एस चा शिवशक्ती संगम म्हणजे शिवाजी महाराजांना वापरून मराठा समाजात घुसण्याचा डाव होय! 
      परंतु राजकीय दृष्टीने जागृत मराठा समाज आर एस एस ला स्वीकारणार नाही.उलट आर एस एस चा हा डाव त्यांच्यावर (रीबाउंस) उलटणार आहे.
      असे मत
      ॲड.बाळासाहेब तथा प्रकाशजी आंबेडकर राष्ट्रीय नेते भारिप बहुजन महासंघ यांनी पुणे येथे व्यक्त केले. 
      पुढे त्यांनी स्पष्ट केले की, 
      (१)शिवाजी महाराज थोर राजे होते,त्यांना सर्व लोक मानतात.कारण त्यांचे राज्य लोकशाहीचे व रयतेचे आणि धर्मनिरपेक्ष होते.
      (२) गागाभट्टाने शिवाजी महाराज यांचा राज्याभिषेक करण्यास नकार दिला होता. दूसरा राज्याभिषेक पुराणोक्त पध्दतीने केला.
      (३)ब्राह्मण व इतरात भेद केल्या जातो.ब्राह्मणास वैदिक तर अन्य लोकासाठी पुराणोक्त धार्मिक विधि पूर्वी होते व आजही आहेत.
      (४)गागाभट्टाने शिवाजी महाराजांचा राज्याभिषेक करण्यास नकार दिला त्याबद्दल आर एस एस माफी मागणार आहे काय?
      (५)आर एस एस ने शिवाजी महाराजांची लोकशाही व धर्मनिरपक्षता स्वीकारलेली नाही.
      (६)आर एस एस रयतेची नाही. उलट रयत मायनस म्हणजे आर एस एस आहे.
      (७)शिवाजी महाराजावर कब्जा करुन त्यांना वापरून
      मराठा समाजात आर एस एस ला घुसायचे आहे.बीजेपी चे सरकार आहे.आर एस एस ला हिंदू राष्ट्र निर्माण करण्या साठी शिवाजी महाराजांचा वापर करायचा आहे.
      (८)शिवाजी महाराजांचा अंत कसा झाला?याचा शोध घेण्या साठी बीजेपी सरकार आर एस एस ची समिती नेमणार आहे.या समितीत खरे इतिहासकार सरकार घेणार काय?
      ही वस्तुस्थिती विचारात घेतली तर माझे स्पष्ट मत आहे की,आर एस एस चा शिवशक्ती संघम द्वारे शिवाजी महाराजाना वापरून मराठा समाजात घुसण्याचा डाव राजकीय दृष्टीने जागृत मराठा समाज सहन करणार नाही. उलट हा डाव आर एस एस च्या अंगलट (रीबाउंस होइल) येइल. हे निश्चित.

      Please Sign thisCHANGE.ORG petition which may change life of Thousands of Villagers in Karimganj, Assam

      Hello!

      I've started the petition "Construction of RUBs in under-construction Badarpur-Agartala at Umarpur of Karimganj District,Assam" and need your help to get it off the ground.

      Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here's the link:

      http://www.change.org/p/construction-of-rubs-in-under-construction-badarpur-agartala-at-umarpur-of-karimganj-district-assam

      Here's why it's important:

       

       

      The project of under-construction Badarpur-Agartala broad-gauge Railway line piercing the heart of many villages has not included the measures for eradication of communication bottleneck of the tens of thousands of villagers (popular guestimate is around 50 thousand) who are unable to avail their existing village roads to come out to the national highway for reaching to the main markets, hospitals and other institutions which are important sites for their daily livelihood.
      the villagers' plea to give connectivity to the village roads with national highway by providing under-track pathways (RUB, RCC BOX ROAD UNDER BRIDGES) is ignored, though the construction of such RUB needs a very small amount of fund. In absence of such pathways, the villagers have to travel nearly 10Km to reach to national highway whereas the provision of under-track roadways would have reduced this length to only a few hundred meters. For the inhabitant of these villages, it's really a big issue.
        The villagers demanded six such RUBs and the Railway authority did a survey and agreed to construct three such RUBs for existing village roads against an earlier departmental estimated amount of approximately Rs. 6 crores (Six crores) for six RUBs i.e. approximately one crore per RUB and placed the proposal to the district administration for their consent. The district administration instead of giving consent to such proposal sent it back with a requisition of constructing six such RUBs to Railway department and the local Railway authority in turn put the ball to the court of State Govt. by agreeing to do it as deposit work against sanctioning of fund by the State Govt. The real issue has thus been sidelined through such dillydallying official procedure and shifting of onus. The people with their broken hearts are striving hard to draw the attention of the opinion-builders and policy makers.

      Thanks!

      बनारस में एक वयोवृद्ध कामरेड थे त्रैलोक्यनाथ सरकार, बच्चे-बूढ़े सबके लिये सरकार दा. अपनी जवानी में वह अनुशीलन दल के क्रांतिकारी थे, फिर कम्युनिस्ट बने. पार्टी टूटने के बाद वह सीपीआईएम में गये, कुछ साल बाद सीपीआई में लौट आये.

      काफ़ी उम्र हो जाने के बाद वह थोड़ा विक्षिप्त हो गये थे. भेलुपुरा से पैदल गोदौलिया तक आते थे, सीपीआई दफ़्तर के नीचे सामने के फ़ुटपाथ पर खड़े-खड़े देर तक लाल झंडे को देखते थे. फिर वहां से दशाश्वमेध की ओर बढ़ जाते थे. वहां सीपीआईएम के दफ़्तर के नीचे खड़े होकर देर तक लाल झंडे को देखते रहते थे.

      कोई परिचित कामरेड मिल जाने पर कहते थे : दोनों को एक होना पड़ेगा.

      यह उनका रोज़ का काम था.

      संघीय प्रतिकांती आणि नादान आंबेडकरवादी


      By Sunil Khobragade


      (Editor,Marathi daily Mahanayak and heads yet another Republican party)


      हिंदूंमधील उच्चजातीय पुरुषांची संघटना असलेल्या राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघाने ख्रिश्चन धर्मियांची स्वतंत्र संघटना काढण्याचे ठरविले आहे. यासाठी संघ परिवाराच्या राष्ट्रीय मुस्लिम मंचाचे संयोजक इंद्रेशकुमार तसेच केंद्रिय अर्थमंत्री अरुण जेटली यांनी ख्रिश्चन धर्मगुरुंची बैठक घेतल्याचे समजते. रा.स्व.संघाशी संबंधित एकूण संघटना ज्याला संघ परिवार संबोधले जाते, अशांची संख्या आजमितीस जवळपास 60 च्या घरात आहे. यामध्ये राजकीय, सामाजिक, कामगारक्षेत्र, शिक्षणक्षेत्र, साहित्यक्षेत्र, कीडाक्षेत्र, महिला, युवक, आदिवासी, दलित या सर्व घटकांच्या संदर्भात काम करणाऱया संघटना समाविष्ट आहेत. तरीही ख्रिश्चन धर्मियांसाठी वेगळी संघटना रा.स्व. संघ काढू पहातो आहे. राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघ ही प्रामुख्याने हिंदुंमधील उच्चजातीय पुरुषांची संघटना आहे. ही संघटना स्वत:ची ओळख हिंदू संघटना म्हणून करुन देते. भारत हे हिंदूंचे राष्ट्र आहे, भारतातील प्रत्येक व्यक्ती हिंदू आहे, असा दावा करणाऱया या संघटनेने मुस्लिम धर्माच्या लोकांमध्ये संघाचा विचार पसरविणारी राष्ट्रीय मुस्लिम मंच ही संघटना याआधीच स्थापन केली आहे. आता ख्रिश्चन धर्मियांमध्ये संघविचार पसरविण्यासाठी वेगळी संघटना काढण्याचे प्रयत्न संघाने सुरु केले आहे. यावरुन भारतामध्ये अस्तित्वात असलेल्या प्रत्येक धर्माचे आणि प्रत्येक संस्थेचे ब्राह्मणीकरण करण्याचा संघाचा मानस स्पष्ट होतो. ज्या धर्माचे अस्तित्व संघाला नको आहे, त्या धर्माच्या धर्मगुरुंशी जवळीक साधून त्यांची संघटना स्थापन करण्याच्या या प्रयत्नाकडे आंबेडकरी जनतेने स्वपरिक्षण करण्याच्या दृष्टीकोनातून पाहण्याची आवश्यकता आहे.

      रा.स्व. संघाचे सर्वोच्च लक्ष्य ब्राह्मणांचे साम्राज्य प्रस्थापित करणे हे असले तरी ही बाब संघ परिवार उघडपणे बोलून दाखवत नाही. व्यवहारात आपल्या संघटनेचे स्वरुप हिंदुंची संघटना म्हणूनच ठसविण्यात संघ परिवार यशस्वी झाला आहे. हिंदू म्हणजे कोणताही विशिष्ट धर्म नव्हे तर हिंदू म्हणजे एक विचार, एक जीवनपद्धती आहे आणि भारतात रहाणारा प्रत्येक व्यक्ती मग तो कोणत्याही जातीचा अथवा धर्माचा असला तरी तो हिंदूच आहे, ही रा.स्व. संघाची भूमिका आहे. ही भूमिका संघाचे मानवी मूल्यांवर अतोनात प्रेम आहे म्हणून घेतलेली नाही. किंवा संघ परिवार समता, स्वातंत्र्य आणि बंधुत्वाचा सर्वोच्च पुरस्कर्ता आहे म्हणूनही संघाने अशी भूमिका घेतलेली नाही. संघाची ही भूमिका ब्राह्मणवर्चस्व अबाधित ठेवण्यासाठी घेतलेली भूमिका आहे. ब्राह्मणवर्चस्व अबाधित ठेवायचे असेल तर देशाची राजकीय सत्ता हातात असणे आवश्यक आहे. राजकीय सत्ता कायमस्वरुपी स्वत:कडे ठेवायची असेल तर विरोधकांनाही आपलेसे करावे लागते. ज्यांच्याशी पराकोटीचे तात्विक आणि व्यवहारीक मतभेद असतात, त्यांचा विरोध सौम्य कसा होईल याची तजवीज करावी लागते. मनात असलेली तत्वनिष्ठा प्रगट न करता आपण तडजोडवादी आहोत, लवचिक आहोत याचे प्रदर्शन करावे लागते. त्याहीपुढे समाजात असलेल्या विविध गटांना, समुहांना त्यांची जातीय, सांप्रदायिक आणि धार्मिक ओळख बाजुला ठेऊन सर्वांना एक वर्ग म्हणून नवीन ओळख द्यावी लागते.संघ [अरीवर नेमके हेच करीत आहे.

      मुस्लिम, ख्रिश्चन, आदिवासी, दलित इ. वेगवेगळ्या सामाजिक आणि धार्मिक समुहांची वेगळी संघटना काढण्यामागे या समुहांचा हिंदू म्हणून एक वर्ग निर्माण करण्याचे संघ परिवाराचे उद्दिष्ट आहे. आपल्या या उद्दिष्टात संघ परिवार बऱयाच अंशी यशस्वी झाला आहे. सद्यस्थितीत भारतातील प्रत्येक राजकीय पक्षाला आपण हिंदूंचे कसे कैवारी आहोत, हे उर बडवून सांगावे लागते. जन्माने ख्रिश्चन असलेल्या सोनिया गांधींना तसेच त्यांचे पुत्र राहूल गांधी यांना आपण हिंदू आहोत हे दाखविण्यासाठी विविध हिंदू मंदिरात जाऊन पूजा करावी लागते व त्याचे प्रदर्शन करावे लागते. भाजपाचा घोर विरोध करणाऱया लालूपसाद यादव तसेच नितीशकुमार यांनाही बिहारची निवडणूक जिंकण्यासाठी आपण हिंदू आहोत हे ओरडून सांगावे लागते. धर्म म्हणजे अफूची गोळी समजणाऱया कम्युनिस्टांना दुर्गापूजेचे जाहीर कार्यकम आयोजित करावे लागतात. यावरुन जातीय किंवा धार्मिक ओळखीपेक्षा हिंदू म्हणून वर्गवाचक ओळख प्रस्थापित करण्यात संघ परिवार पूर्णपणे यशस्वी झाल्याचे दिसते.

      हिंदू ही वर्गवाचक ओळख निर्माण करण्याच्या संघाच्या प्रयत्नांच्या पार्श्वभूमीवर आंबेडकरवाद्यांचे कर्तृत्व तपासल्यास बाबासाहेबांनी अखिल भारतीय स्तरावर सर्व अस्पृश्य जातींना `अनुसूचित जाती' म्हणून मिळवून दिलेली वर्गवाचक ओळख समाप्त करण्याचे स्वघातकी चाळे महाराष्ट्रातील बौद्धांनी चालविले आहेत. अखिल भारतीय स्तरावरील हिंदू धर्मिय अनुसूचित जाती, ख्रिश्चन किंवा मुस्लिम धर्मात धर्मांतरीत झालेल्या पूर्वाश्रमीच्या अस्पृश्य जाती तसेच डॉ. बाबासाहेब आंबेडकरांच्या आवाहनानुसार बौद्ध धर्मात धर्मांतरीत झालेल्या पूर्वाश्रमीच्या अस्पृश्य जाती यांची सामाजिक आणि आर्थिक स्थिती एकसारखी आहे. या जातींना पसारमाध्यमातून आणि व्यवहारात एकत्रितरित्या दलितवर्ग म्हणून संबोधले जाते. मात्र महाराष्ट्रातील बौद्धांना दलितवर्ग म्हणून आपली ओळख निर्माण होणे तुच्छतेचे आणि कमीपणाचे वाटते. यामुळे महाराष्ट्रातील बौद्ध अखिल भारतीय स्तरावरील हिंदू, मुस्लिम तसेच ख्रिश्चन धर्मातील पूर्वाश्रमीच्या अस्पृश्य जातींपासून तुटला आहे. इतर प्रान्तातील पूर्वाश्रमीच्या अस्पृश्य जातींना महाराष्ट्रातील बौद्ध तुच्छ लेखून हिंदू म्हणून त्यांच्याशी भेदभाव करीत असल्यामुळे महाराष्ट्रातील बौद्धांना अखिल भारतीय स्तरावर परकेपणाने पाहिले जाते. यामुळे आंबेडकरी चळवळीची प्रचंड हानी झाली आहे. रा.स्व. संघाने धर्माच्या पलिकडे जाऊन इतर धर्मियांना जोडण्यात जी लवचिकता दाखविली आहे त्याचा मागमूस महाराष्ट्रातील बौद्धांमध्ये नसल्यामुळे एकेकाळी अखिल भारतातील अस्पृश्य, आदिवासी, अल्पसंख्य समुहांचे नेतृत्व करणारा महाराष्ट्रातील पूर्वाश्रमीचा महार आणि आताचा बौद्ध मायक्रो मायनॉरेटीमध्ये ढकलला गेला आहे.

      भारतामध्ये हजारो वर्षांपासून ब्राह्मण विरुद्ध अब्राह्मण हा संघर्ष चालत आलेला आहे. इतिहासाच्या वेगवेगळ्या कालखंडात ब्राह्मणवादाविरुद्ध क्रांती होऊन समतावादी अब्राह्मणी विचार प्रस्थापित झाल्याची नोंद आपल्याला मिळते. याचबरोबर पराभूत झालेल्या ब्राह्मणवादाने स्वत:ला काहीकाळ सुप्तावस्थेत ठेऊन पुन्हा पतिक्रांती करुन समतावादी अब्राह्मणी विचाराला पराभूत करुन स्वत:चे वर्चस्व प्रस्थापित केल्याचेही दाखले मिळतात. डॉ. बाबासाहेब आंबेडकरांनी या ऐतिहासिक चढाई आणि प्रतिचढाईचे स्वरुप विशद करण्यासाठी `भारतातील क्रांती आणि पतिक्रांती' या शिर्षकाचा ग्रंथ लिहिण्याचे योजिले होते. त्यासाठी बरीचशी प्रकरणेही त्यांनी लिहून काढली होती. राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघाच्या विविध धर्माच्या, सामाजिक समुहाच्या वेगळ्या संघटना काढून त्यांच्यामध्ये ब्राह्मणवादी विचार रुजविण्याचे प्रयत्न सातत्याने सुरु ठेवले आहेत. या प्रयत्नाचे क्रांती आणि पतिक्रांतीच्या निकषावर मोजमाप केले तर रा.स्व.संघ आपल्या धोरणात लवचिकता दाखवून डॉ. बाबासाहेब आंबेडकरांनी संविधानाच्या माध्यमातून भारतात घडवून आणलेली संवैधानिक लोकशाही क्रांती समाप्त करण्याच्या जवळ पोहोचला आहे, तर आधुनिक भारतातील या महत्तम क्रांतीचे नायक असलेल्या बाबासाहेबांचे अनुयायी आपल्या ताठरपणापायी आणि धोरणात्मक नादानपणामुळे पतिक्रांतीचे वाहक ठरत आहेत.

      ET reports:Ending a 25month expansion run, manu facturing activity in India contracted in December, indicating that a festivalrelated surge may not be sustainable. The Nikkei India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index dipped to 49.1 in December from 50.3 in November.


      Whatever his credit hyped so much so,I never considered RBI Governor Rajan an economist who had been the supreme financial manager subordinated to corporate lawyer of the Dow Chemicals and he had been engaged to manage the rate so often as a Bankrupt without having the Raj so ever and it meant no production at all and it meant to ensure free flow of foreign capital and foreign interest only for the Free Market of More consumption and less growth!


      I am afraid to say a spade a spade only and I have no obligation to be politically correct and it is the truth despite the so much so media hype about Bull Rune managed to project growth and development at the cost of humanity and nature for imminent man made disaster as we see no end of calamities in sight.The ethnic cleansing to rape the nature,the open loot Farrukhabad has to legal and this legislation for disaster and only disaster is defined as economic reform by the ruling children of black Money neoliberal hegemony racist,brute and inhuman!


      It is not a news for me as the National Disaster Management Authority has attributed to the increase in earthquake risk in the region due to a spurt in developmental activities driven by urbanization, economic development and globalization.

      However,New chiefs are scheduled to be appointed at the Australian and Malaysian monetary authorities, while the Indian central bank governor's term is also up.As this year will herald a changing of the guard among some central banks in Asia, right at a time when the region's economy is facing significant headwinds.Mindy you as it is very very noteable that the changes will come as China's slowdown continues to reverberate, the commodities slump is expected to linger and Asia's policy makers are tipped to cut interest rates further even as the US Federal reserve is tightening.

      The dragon is melting down as the Chinese walls are wide open for slump now which threaten to inflict not only India but the developed economies also!No walling with sand should stop it because it is by default resultant due to the habitual masterbation practice without any productive culture  whatsoever just to maintain the plastic cash flow in digital biometric robotic nations under surveillance and virtual military rule in an environment of Total 1984 mode,suspending human as well as civil rights to kill the humanity and nature both!


      Meanwhile,Over the last year, exports have dropped by 16.52 per cent. In November 2015 alone, exports crashed by 24 per cent or $20 billion. In the first nine months of 2015, Indian exports declined by 17 per cent, while world exports fell by 11 per cent.


      What about increases in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) which the finance minister claims? According to Emkay Global, FDI, instead of of increasing domestic manufacturing, has contributed to increasing imports.

      Job creation, in the face of large-scale unemployment, is critical.

      In April-June 2014, new jobs created in eight major sectors of the economy were only 1.82 lakh. In the next quarter, job creation dropped to 1.2 lakh. After that, in the following quarter, job creation slumped to 64,000 jobs. By April-June 2015, new job creation contracted to only 43,000.


      Jaitley cites that the revenue collection has gone up. But this is because of a revenue target of 18.8 per cent, which in this economic context, could turn out to be inflationary.



      Meanwhile,The proposed Goods and Services Tax law that will subsume all indirect taxes like excise duty, service tax and sales tax into one uniform rate, is stuck in the Rajya Sabha where the ruling NDA government lacks majority.


      The opposition Congress is demanding three major changes in the bill and stalled the passage of the Constitution Amendment Bill in the last two sessions, derailing government's plan to roll out GST from April 1, 2016.


      No less than one spokesperson of free market economy Bibek Debroy writes:


      As we enter 2016, I wish to focus on an area that is relatively ignored in the Indian economy: public expenditure. The term not only includes Union-level expenditure scrutinised in Union Budgets, but also state-level and local body expenditure, financed through own resources or through devolution. The year 2015 was a distorted year for this public expenditure.

      The year 2016-17 will remove this uncertainty, at least so far as Union-State devolution is concerned. There are now core schemes (there is something called core of the core, but we can ignore that) and optional ones. Every state has to implement a core scheme, but can choose to opt out of an optional one. This is for centrally-sponsored schemes, where states have to provide a matching grant. Other schemes continue as central sector schemes. There are 30 such centrally-sponsored schemes.

      But there are three reasons why 2016-17 will be difficult for states. First, there will be recommendations of existing, or new, state-level Finance Commissions to suggest what states should do with the untied funds they will now get, including devolution to local bodies. Second, state-level budgetary nomenclature and heads will have to be completely aligned with this new set of conditions. In many instances, state-level departments will have to be rationalised and harmonised. Third, all these new schemes are "umbrella" ones.

      Historically, states have always complained, for valid reasons, about rigidity of templates devised in Delhi. By making them "umbrella", there is greater flexibility, but compliance requirements are also more, since there has to be a greater link to tangible improvement in outcomes.

      Today, most states lack the capacity to immediately do all this. Therefore, I suspect few will immediately opt for optional schemes. In 2016-17, as a country, we will have to figure out ways of handling this overturning of an institutional mechanism that has lasted for more than six decades.

      To complicate matters, let me now bring in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to be achieved by 2030. There are 17 goals, with several targets under each goal. India has to figure out means of getting data (where targets are specific) and quantifying and means of getting data (where targets are more imprecise). This is especially true in social sectors, where we have a data problem.

      Some of it is about a time-lag; the rest of it is about the quality of data per se. Take the phenomenon of GDP numbers. There is no denying that the new GDP series is better than the old one. Nevertheless, we still have a huge problem with unorganised sector data for national income accounts.

      It's really satisfactory for organised manufacturing alone. There is discussion about whether we will end 2015-16 with seven per cent real GDP growth or eight per cent. These are real growth numbers.

      Though I am simplifying a bit, in all probability, there will be little difference in nominal growth numbers between the two points of view, seven per cent versus eight per cent. In other words, we have a problem with the deflator used to go from nominal to real.

      This again underlines the data problem. There is talk of removing tax exemptions, incentivising employment creation or start-ups and introducing satisfactory exit (bankruptcy) provisions. In each such instance, there is a problem with data, partly ascribed to the fact that India is still largely an informal/unorganised (not to be confused with illegal) economy.

      While the transition to formality is a function of development and takes time, I think the data problem does need to be addressed in 2016. There was a statistical commission report in 2001.

      Sadly, most gaps pointed out in 2001 still remain.

      The Indian economy has bottomed out and is on a revival path, with growth strengthening, helped by positive ..


      Thus,Indian economy is not doing good, reforms have slowed down,cries the CII President!

      "The economy should have done a lot better. It can do a lot better. A reform like the GST would give the whole industry such a psychological boost that you would see a rapid pack of pick up in the economy," said CII President.


      Sorry!Governor Rajan,you were already bankrupt and now you have to lose the job!


      "It (the economy) should have done a lot better. It can do a lot better. A reform like the GST would give the whole industry such a psychological boost that you would see a rapid pack of pick up in the economy," the CII President told PTI in an interview.


      Asked whether there was a slowdown in the reforms over the last few months, Mazumder said: "There is a slowdown but the reforms are still going through. So, it is not as if the reforms have totally stopped".


      He said the "pace of reforms will pick up once Parliament knows how to function".


      On GST logjam, he said, "GST has been a huge disappointment because everybody recognises the benefits of GST, on how the GDP will be impacted positively and ease of doing business will go up by quite a few notches...


      "This logjam in Parliament has been a very big disappointment and sometimes you have got to draw a line between politics and what is good for the country."


      Sharing the wish list for the Budget, Mazumder said a major thrust is required by the government to stimulate rural demand and boost infrastructure development.

      He also urged that the phased corporate tax reduction to 25 per cent from the prevailing 34 per cent be done in tandem with removal of allowances.


      "We would like to see him (FM) take some initiatives where demand gets a stimulation because that is a major concern right now. We would request that reduction of corporate tax and removal of allowances be done in tandem.


      "We would like to see continuation of investments that are being made by the government right now and by the PSUs. However, the fiscal deficit must be maintained, that should not be sacrificed and one of the ways to do it would be through disinvestment. We want to see a lot more impetus on infrastructure and construction," Mazumder said.


      The industry is looking forward to lower interest rates, he said, but added that he does not expect any more reduction in interest rates in the current fiscal because the rupee is not performing well.


      "We won't see any big bang reduction in interest rates but it will be in small increments like last year," he said.


      The CII President also pointed out that steps taken towards "ease of doing business have been translated onto the ground".

      DROP ZONE Sensex sheds 537 points in tandem with other markets on worries about a slump in China and fresh tensions in Middle East

      A wave of liquidation lashed Indian and global financial markets on Monday as worries about a downturn in China and fresh geopolitical tensions in the Middle East spooked investors. India's key stock indices were pummeled more than 2% -their highest single-day fall in three-and-a-half months -as foreign investors, worried about the impact of weakening emerging market currencies on the value of their holdings, dumped Indian stocks. Foreigners' bets on the Nifty in the options segment point to expectations of another 2-4% fall in the index in the near term.

      China's Shanghai Composite In dex plunged 7% after weak manufacturing data dragged down shares, prompting the country's stock exchange to halt trading. The Chinese central bank's move to fix the yuan at a four-and-a-half year low added to the worries. The turmoil in China rubbed off on the rest of Asian and European markets.

      The BSE Sensex dropped 537 points, or 2.05%, to close at 25,623 on Monday, its steepest fall since September 22. Nifty declined 171 points, or 2.16%, to end at 7,791. The decline in India's manufacturing activity in December for the first time in more than two years also intensified worries about the health of the Indian economy. Provisional data from the BSE showed that foreign funds sold Rs 670 crore worth of Indian stocks on Monday.
