Aizawl | Published: October 27 2014 5:35 pm Related News Tripura’s main medical college has lost half of its post-graduate courses after the Medical Council of India de-recognised six of them this year three this month alone The Agartala Government Medical College is now left with permission to run just half of the courses it initially had according to meeting minutes of the MCI through this year And as things stand now the college appears unable to expand in other areas as well – proposals to start four new PG courses have already been rejected In its latest meeting this month the MCI recommended against granting further recognition to post-graduate courses in Pediatrics Medicine Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Psychiatry General Surgery had already been de-recognised in August 2014 following the same fate as the college’s Anaesthesia and Radio Diagnosis courses two months prior Their final fate appears to have been prophesied somewhat with the MCI having disapproved the college’s proposals to increase the seats available in all these courses as early as February That was the same month the apex medical body disapproved similar proposals to increase seats in Ophthalmology and Orthopedics The MCI had then also shot down proposals to start PG courses in Respiratory Medicine Pathology Anatomy and Physiology as well as a diploma course in Child Health Interestingly all the proposals to start these four new courses cited one Professor Dr H Sharmah as the in-charge principal of all these planned new departments something the MCI could not accept But those were not the only reasons as repeated reports cited a lack of faculty and infrastructure needed to host or operate these courses the same reasons cited in the decisions to de-recognise the PG courses that did exist In some measure of consolation however the MCI has recommended for the continued recognition of four courses including in Forensic Medicine ENT Community Medicine Microbiology

Illustration by CR Sasikumar Related News Twenty-five years ago I had edited an anthology of Dalit literature Poisoned Bread: Translations from Modern Marathi Dalit Literature In the introduction I had stated: “In the coming age India will see religion and politics go hand-in-hand When that happens the literati intellectuals and thinkers who believe in secular and democratic values will have to be ready to face the challenges that will arise” The elevation of Yogi Adityanath as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh is an instance of this challenge This mixing of religion and politics results in feudalism In India it may not lead to race-based fascism but it can result in authoritarianism centred on religion The first laboratory for the creation of such a Hindu Nation (Hindu Rashtra) was instituted in Gujarat under the leadership of Narendra Modi; the Sangh Parivar has now initiated the second such laboratory in Uttar Pradesh The concept of Hindu Rashtra is not only outdated but also impossible The last Hindu kingdom Nepal has itself done away with the anxieties of the Hindu Rashtra and is now standing strong on the pillars of secularism and democracy Supporters of the idea fail to define what a Hindu Rashtra is Will it have a different Constitution Will it have a different national flag Will the national anthem be different Well if the Hindu religion and its followers are not honoured in a country are unable to celebrate their festivals or have had their temples demolished then the idea of a Hindu Rashtra makes logical sense However the fact is in post-Independence India all the elected governments at the Centre and in the states have been dominated by Hindus irrespective of the party in office As the notion of a Hindu Rashtra cannot take a tangible form the Sangh Parivar has been consistently running a hidden agenda which has produced a strait-laced and dogmatic ideology As a result a Hindu Rashtra is being sought to be established by targeting Muslims Dalits Christians and other minorities and by demolishing the principle of one man one vote one value bestowed by the Constitution The violent religious frenzy of the “gau rakshaks” is a realisation of the Hindu Rashtra agenda Hindu Rashtra and Hindutva however are not the same Hindutva is related to Indian culture whereas Hindu Rashtra is rooted in caste hegemony There is no reason to oppose Hindutva because the Constitution provides each one the freedom to practice the religion of his/her choice and follow the lifestyle it entails The majority of Hindus are not casteist or fanatical But knowingly or unknowingly leftists progressives seculars and Ambedkarites have committed the mistake of targeting the entire Hindu community while intensely opposing Hindutva The Sangh Parivar has found an opportunity here to polarise the Hindu community My observation may seem similar to the “soft Hindutva” of the Congress There is a basic difference however in the organisational structure of the Congress and the Sangh Parivar Every party worker in the Sangh Parivar from the top to bottom is orthodox and dogmatic In the Congress and other secular organisations top officials may be secular and the workers are either followers of Hinduism or Islam My concerns are about values It is the responsibility of the government to protect and preserve values — one man one value tolerance liberty equality fraternity and national integration — upheld by the Constitution But when one listens to historians scientists politicians judges and saints close to the Sangh Parivar one is transported to the 18th century The country is going through a psychological and ideological dialectical phase Jawaharlal Nehru Indira Gandhi Atal Bihari Vajpayee were not just elected prime ministers of India they were accepted as leaders by Indian society Why is Narendra Modi who won a convincing mandate not regarded as a leader by all Indians The Sangh Parivar needs to introspect Why does the Sangh leadership remain silent and provide moral support to the party workers who make incongruous comments that provoke separatism It scares me when tolerance civility and culture in the socio-political system seem to disappear It scares me that the BJP and Sangh Parivar never use the names of their idols Hedgewar and Guru Golwalkar in election campaigns Instead they have appropriated those who have worked hard to preserve the values of liberty unity fraternity and national integration — like Shivaji Maharaj Mahatma Gandhi Babasaheb Ambedkar and Sardar Patel The battle for values is inevitable regardless of the party in power It is necessary to fight the tendency that endangers liberty equality fraternity tolerance and national integration It is the duty of writers artists intellectuals and journalists to uproot such a tendency As a writer-activist who believes in democracy and who wishes to see the socialisation of democracy I reiterate what Babasaheb Ambedkar said on November 25 1949 while presenting the Constitution: “We are going to enter a life of contradictions In politics we will have equality and in social and economic life we will have inequality We must remove this contradiction at the earliest possible moment Else those who suffer from inequality will blow up the structure of political democracy” Dangle one of the founder members of the Dalit Panthers is an acclaimed writer

names two new directors without consulting board Related News Uber Technologies Inc co-founder Travis Kalanick said he had appointed two new directors a surprise move that publicly reignited a board battle over the role of the ousted former chief executive Kalanick’s move on Friday sought to pre-empt a move by new Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi to restructure the board and gain greater control a person familiar with the co-founder’s decision said Uber said in a statement on Friday the company was surprised by Kalanick’s action Company investors are divided over whether Kalanick should remain on the board and whether he should be allowed to name two other directors Benchmark Capital which had pressured Kalanick to resign as CEO in the wake of several governance scandals did not respond to a request for comment Khosrowshahi is scrambling to portray Uber as a reformed company that is turning a page on concerns including sexual harassment claims and a US bribery probe Investors have described diluting Kalanick’s power as a necessary step on the path to making amends Kalanick still one of the largest shareholders said in a statement he had appointed former Xerox Chief Executive Ursula Burns and former Merrill Lynch Chief Executive John Thain as directors “I am appointing these seats now in light of a recent board proposal to dramatically restructure the board and significantly alter the company’s voting rights It is therefore essential that the full board be in place for proper deliberation to occur especially with such experienced board members as Ursula and John” he said He did not specify the proposals he opposed Uber had nine directors before Kalanick’s Friday appointments The person familiar with the matter said that Kalanick acted after Khosrowshahi had outlined a plan to directors which is scheduled to be voted on October 3 that would give him control of four board seats in addition to his own on a panel that now has 11 directors Khosrowshahi’s plan calls for transferring one of the two Kalanick-controlled positions to SoftBank Group Corp which is considering an investment in Uber the source said Khosrowshahi effectively could put a person of his choosing in the other seat as well as three other existing ones according to the source A third of directors also would be elected each year under the plan Uber did not respond on Saturday to a request to comment about the Khosrowshahi plan But the company said earlier in a statement that Kalanick’s appointments were a “complete surprise” to Uber and its board “That is precisely why we are working to put in place world-class governance to ensure that we are building a company every employee and shareholder can be proud of” the statement said Yucaipa Companies managing partner Ron Burkle an investor who has supported Kalanick praised Burns and Thain as “smart high-quality people” Division among Uber investors exploded in public in August when Benchmark Capital filed a lawsuit to force Kalanick off the board and rescind his ability to fill two other seats on the panel accusing him of concealing a range of misdeeds Yucaipa and other Uber investors defended Kalanick and asked Benchmark to divest its own shares and step down from the board A Delaware judge later that month stayed the Benchmark lawsuit and sent it to arbitration pushing the dispute out of public view and delivering Kalanick a victory Kalanick’s action on Friday could be subject to a new legal challenge Benchmark or other Uber investors could attempt to block the appointments by asking the Delaware judge to issue a so-called “status-quo order” The judge last month did not grant such a request Kalanick’s lawyer at the time told the court that Kalanick had not rushed to fill the seats The New York Times also quoted Kalanick’s lawyer as telling the court Kalanick had the power to fill the seats under the pre-arbitration “status quo” For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App

Most softy birders when they come across a bunch of these grassland squeakers will squeal with delight and exclaim “But they’re so cute” It’s not a word I like to use but yes when you look at munias you can’t deny that there’s something endearing about these little birds They have a derring-do cheerfulness about them: the bindaas way they swing with the monsoon winds perched on stalks of tall grass happily snacking off seeds as they do If they’re feeling especially chuffed one may even lean over and give its partner an affectionate peck on the cheek while its friends chirrup approvingly There are various species of munias found in India and you are likely to encounter them in grassy meadows swampy areas sugarcane fields and thin scrubby forest Perhaps the most commonly encountered one is the white-throated munia now rather romantically called the silverbill (the kind of name a cowboy might like) It’s a little beige bird — smaller than a sparrow — with a chunky conical silver-grey bill dark expressive eyes a pointy tail with white on the top Years ago a bunch of them used to squeak down into the neighbour’s garden where an all-you-can-eat buffet of wheat was laid out for them But then the people left and the birds stopped coming until a few days ago when I spotted one at the water dish early in the morning Some months earlier I had been even more delighted in seeing a scaly-breasted munia (alias spotted munia spice finch) on one of the banana trees in the garden so it’s good to know they are close by Certainly the most glamorous of the clan is the red munia or avadavat In the breeding season around monsoon the gents turn out in brown and crimson (they have red eyes too) and look as if they’ve been studded with bleached almonds The ladies are blanket brown After the romance and consequent strain of family-rearing the males turn brown but retain spots and specks of red on their tails which really makes them look like they’ve been peppered on the bottom with scattershot They like nesting near water building a small globe out of grasses and leaves I was delighted when (many years ago) I discovered a pair nesting in the reeds alongside one of the ponds at the Old Delhi Ridge but alas the birds had chosen their site unwisely: it was far too close to the stomping feet of joggers and walkers and the would-be parents must have had several nervous breakdowns before deciding to abandon their home A silverbill pair nesting in the Sultanpur National Park in Haryana had no such worries: they’d set up home in the heart of such a ferociously thorny bush it was amazing that they could themselves access their home without being impaled or at least shredded to bits They flew in and out blithely I thought: hah it’s all very well for you wait till your babies have to leave home and take a look at what lies outside their doorstep They’re not going to like it one bit — and may even decide never to leave home It was silverbills too that sent me into a tizzy — again many years ago While birding on the Ridge I spotted what looked like a pair of them except that instead of being beige they were bright yellow I scanned all my books and couldn’t find a similar bird anywhere Was this a new species — a golden munia — that no one had recorded Here just five minutes away from home What made it seem all the more plausible was that one of the pair (the poor female obviously) was paler and more faded than her partner I rushed back with the camera They were still there Then I took a good hard look at them again The faded female she looked like her colours had sort of run The penny dropped At the Jama Masjid bird market I had discovered that you could get munias dyed green neon blue and probably whatever “bespoke” colour you wanted It’s really an awful thing to do to such sweet little birds because often those dyes are toxic Munias are unfortunately hot favourite pets and when I looked up the internet there were sites which advised on how to keep them how much to pay for them and so on On another occasion again at the Ridge I watched as an Omni stopped by the gates and a man accompanied by a helper began unloading cages and cages of painted munias Then with a flourish he opened the cage doors one by one and let the birds go and folded his hands Either he was giving thanks to the gods for some favour they’d bestowed upon him or he was cadging a favour from them If he’d been genuinely interested in the welfare of the little birds he would not have bought them in the first place: the very act of buying means the seller would have to replenish his stocks from the wild One little munia that has suffered more than most is the endemic green munia which apparently takes to captivity a little too well for its own good So much so that sellers catch lady red munias and dye them green to pass them off as green munias A favourite hotspot for these uncommon birds is Mount Abu though they’re supposed to be found all along a broad belt of territory running right across central India Some birds are jaw-droppingly beautiful others fierce predators yet others as canny and sly as the best of
