parties across the political spectrum They all swear by the name of democracybut do not respect democratic values in their own backyard It took a lot of time and energy for someone like former Chief Election Commissioner TN Seshan to instill the fear of God in the hearts of political satrapswho till then rigged electionsruled at their own free will and used caste politics to browbeat the masses into accepting their version of democracy With the Election Commission asserting its authority after Seshanthings began to improve and we successfully established a goodwell-functioning electoral system While the first phase of democracy was strengthened by a strong electoral system that ensured independent and transparent electionswe have failed to deliver in the second phase of democratic reform Our political parties have become more autocratic and family interests took precedence over the larger political interests Like an inexperienced doctor who administers medicine which treats an illness but causes more undiagnosed and unrelated side effectsthe Tenth Schedule controlled defections and brought stability butat the same timemade it impossible for political leaders and activists to discussdebate and express their thoughts freely and without fear It opened the gates for a situation wherein political bosses had a complete iron grip over their parties and the democratic space within parties became more and more constricted It was no longer possible for political parties to tolerate a young Turk like Chandra Shekhar of the 1960s and the 1970s Post Tenth Schedule and post Sonia Gandhis entry into politicsregional and smaller parties have become more brazen in their assertion of family dominance in party affairssuch as the DMKAkali DalSPRJDNCPetc Otherswithout family dominancehave developed strong authoritarian leadership styles like the BSP of MayawatiTrinamool Congress of Mamata BanerjeeAIADMK of Jayalalithaa This authoritarian style of political leadership does

My expulsion from the SPfor simply interviewing Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for Nai Duniyawhich I have been editing for a long timeis symptomatic of this growing intolerance within political parties The interview conducted by me was one of the most detailed ones given to any newspaper and asked hard-hitting questions Againhistory repeated itselfand like the Mayawati episodeI was once more not given any chance to speak or explain my position This issue of corruption is deeply linked to the type of family-oriented politics visible in India today These undemocratic practices within the organisational setup of political parties are a breeding ground for corruption It would not be an exaggeration to say that parties often come to power to perpetuate their own form of dynastic rule and to make their familys future secure Family members of the political elite know that even if they commit colossal mistakes and indulge in outright corrupt practicesthey will never be punished or questioned within their partiesunlike others Mayawati may take action against the elected representatives of her partybut will not rein in her most trusted lieutenants like Nasimuddin Siddiqui This smug attitude of political leaders has only given the impression that parties are turning into personal fiefdoms where family members and close associates live by different rulesshielded from all forms of criticism and cushioned by the backing of the party president It is time political bosses introduced an open culture of discussion and debate within parties before it is too late Better governance cannot come with only Anna Hazare-type solutions The Anna movements focus on Lokpal is only a cosmetic treatment of the disease The real remedy lies in forcing political parties to democratise themselves so that they can become arenas for healthy debate and discussion Our political class must focus on this aspect of democracyotherwisewe will let our hard-earned democracy go down

A bar owner said the government should discuss the matter with them before enacting any such law (Source: Kevin DSouza) Top News With the state government all set to enact a law to prohibit beer bars wine and liquor shops and permit rooms from using the names of deities national or state figures and historic forts bar owners claim that they have been functioning with such names for decades and changing them would hamper business While the matter came to light in March in the Legislative Council after a calling attention motion was raised by MLC Amarsinh Pandit and others the state departments of labour and state excise appointed a 16-member committee on Saturday aiming to amend the Maharashtra Shops and Establishments Act 1948 Headed by the labour minister the committee will submit a report to the state within a month after which a law will be enacted A senior official of the state labour department said “The sixteen-member committee has been appointed to suggest amendments to the Maharashtra Shops and Establishments Act 1948 It will now be equipped with a provision wherein the names of gods deities national figures and monuments like forts will be prohibited for bars permit rooms liquor shops etc Any attempt to ignore this regulation will result in cancellation of licence” The official added “Once the report comes out the government will also seek the opinion of the state law and judiciary department before drafting the proposed law” Former president of the Bar Owners Association Manjit Singh Sethi said “I agree with the point that bars liquor shops and permit rooms should not have names attached to any religion god deities But what’s the issue with bars named after national figures and historical monuments Besides this is the same government that named a railway station Ram Mandir not even Ram Mandir road A bar situated around this station will always say so and so bar near Ram Mandir Ironically this government has a problem with bars and liquor shops named after deities Why are they allowing such establishments to mushroom around temples and pilgrim areas The best example is Shirdi So many liquor shops have come up What is the government doing about that” The Association of Hotel And Restaurants (AHAR) too feels that the law would have a negative impact on their business but has decided to wait for an official notification from the government Santosh Shetty General Secretary of AHAR said “We will wait for the committee to frame the rules and then decide our move Currently we have received no correspondence from the government pertaining to this We also need to understand that the law would include hotels and restaurants serving liquor We are meeting to discuss GST tomorrow we would also discuss this matter Besides changing the names does not just mean changing the board and banner of bars and restaurants but involves a lengthy process of changing the title It would be appropriate to comment on the matter at this stage” Owners of such establishments are planning to write to the state government calling it “unnecessary moral policing” A bar owner who did not wish to be named said “This bar was started by my father and named after my grandfather As the name also has the name of a goddess I will have to change it now We have been running this bar for the past 25 years and it has become a brand Changing it will have a negative impact on our brand name” Another bar owner from Andheri Sadashiv Shetty said “These bars are our source of income and we name them after our deities as a goodwill We have no intention of insulting the gods Besides the state government should also discuss this matter with us before enacting any such law” diptisingh@expressindiacom For all the latest

back; I was doing the right things” says Bhasin from Mumbai But what led to Jag ghoomeya and Bhasin’s current popularity wasn’t her seminal piece Kuch khaas hai in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion (2008) It was partly the success of Dhunki in Mere Brother ki Dulhan (2011) and mostly her attempt at reviving Punjabi folk and India’s pop scene through her YouTube channel “I was born a popstar and I’ll die one It’s like oxygen for me” says Bhasin who released her album Tabaah in 2010 It found takers but Bhasin wasn’t the toast of tinsel town When her partner composer Sameer Uddin suggested that Bhasin present age-old Punjabi folk her own way she was taken aback “I told him he had gone mad For someone who had grown up loving and crooning Mariah Carey Michael Jackson and Roxette how was I to

am Mrs Gandhi declares Emergency from AIR studios on June 26 1975 (Source: Express Archives) Related News A little magazine from Mumbai was the only national publication in India to carry a story on the excesses of Sanjay Gandhi’s pet mass sterilisation programme at the height of the Emergency defying the government’s draconian press censorship regulations Fulcrum was founded by Yogi Aggarwal just weeks before the Emergency was declared in June 1975 The novelist Cyrus Mistry was an assistant editor poet Nissim Ezekiel and writer Farrukh Dhondy were columnists the Irish graphic designer Sean Mahoney was art director and Pradeep Guha who later joined The Times of India and became a media czar was advertising manager Shortly after I joined Fulcrum as editor in early 1976 we heard that hundreds of farmers had been randomly picked up from the streets of Barsi a small town in Marathwada and forcibly sterilised by municipal doctors I went down to investigate I was horrified by what I discovered Barsi (now spelt “Barshi”) is an agricultural market town 220 km east of Pune In January 1976 its municipal council was told to organise a 10-day campaign to sterilise 1000 people for Sanjay Gandhi’s pet programme Hardly anyone volunteered in the first two days So for the next eight days two trucks prowled around town to achieve the target A local photographer captured some of the dramatic street scenes on his camera Hundreds of farmers visiting Barsi were dragged from the streets and forcibly sterilised Some were unmarried some had just one or two children some were already sterilised and some were very old It made little difference Many became septic at least one died all were badly traumatised Is India Emergency Proof “Barsi — Success or Excess” appeared as a cover story in the April 1976 issue of Fulcrum Though it had a small circulation the magazine did get sold in cities across India For the first time since the mass sterilisation campaign had been unleashed on the poor readers got a ground report of its depredations There wasn’t much chance those days of the mainstream Indian media picking up such a story But The Washington Post sent an undercover correspondent to Mumbai to write on Barsi And British political philosopher David Selbourne wrote about the excesses in his book An Eye to India: The Unmasking of a Tyranny Shortly after the Barsi exposé two Special Branch inspectors came to the Fulcrum office The magazine’s staff were all in their twenties; as is typical of the young we’d gone ahead and published the Barsi story without thinking about the consequences Now the police were in the office I tensed not knowing what to expect To my surprise the two inspectors were very polite even a bit sheepish And all they seemed to really want were the photographs published with the article The photos were in my desk drawer But I was worried these may be used to harass the Barsi photographer So I bluffed and said they were all at the printing press To my surprise the policemen swallowed the lie and left We never saw them again The main reason why Fulcrum escaped official retribution was because it was a little magazine The story did not get noticed by Sanjay Gandhi or his goons in faraway Delhi But I can think of two other reasons why we were spared which explains how the Emergency was experienced differently in different parts of India Maharashtra’s chief press censor was Binod Rao a retired resident editor of The Indian Express Fulcrum earlier had been under pre-censorship — so Rao would have noticed the Barsi story after publication A gentle and decent man he chose to ignore it More importantly Shankarrao Chavan was the state’s chief minister Though Chavan publicly kowtowed to Sanjay Gandhi unlike Haryana’s Bansi Lal he was not unethical or ruthless Moreover he was a grassroots politician from Marathwada — he would have been aware of the rural elite’s outrage after the Barsi atrocity Why didn’t the people of India fight back TV anchor Karan Thapar has raised this question and the answer somehow has damned Indians as wimps But the ground reality was more complicated I can talk of my experience in Mumbai There were street protests as soon as the Emergency was imposed — I recall one by Kobad Ghandy’s Marxist-Leninist group These were easily busted by the police But the anger went underground Small secret groups sprang up I joined one led by a leftwing Bihari journalist We met in a church not far from the police commissioner’s office and talked about ways to sabotage the Emergency Our plans though never went beyond printing protest pamphlets But Ghandy now sadly in Tihar Jail was more politicised Though he was a wealthy Parsi he decided to leave Mumbai and mobilise peasants against the Emergency I have little doubt that if the Emergency had continued longer at least some members of my own group would have also “taken to the hills” It takes time for resistance

New Delhi: As the government gears up to push generic medicines to bring down costs for patients World Health Organisation (WHO) representative in India Henk Bekedam has stated that the move if successfully implemented will not only reduce the cost of medicines within the country but also globally The 59-year old global health leader — who previously served in a similar capacity in Egypt — said that there were several "pre-qualified" generic medicine companies in India producing quality medicines "Make in India is important as India will be able to produce a greater quantity of good quality generic medicines which will bring down the cost of medicines globally and more people in India and globally will be able to afford quality medicines" Bekedam who assumed his present job in November 2015 told IANS in an interview Asked whether the foreign pharmaceutical companies which are major suppliers of branded medicines will be affected if India steps into the picture Bekedam said that India is already the world’s pharmacy exporting quality generic medicines and vaccines "And by bringing down the cost of normal medicines globally they will be accessible to every one" he maintained Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said on 17 April that the government will bring legislation mandating doctors to prescribe generic medicines which are cheaper than their equivalent branded drugs Representational image Reuters Generic medicines are the cheaper versions of branded drugs and come into the market after the patent period of the branded medicines expires Manufacturers then replicate the medicines and come up with the cheaper versions Since generic drugs do not involve a repeat of the extensive clinical trials to prove their safety and efficacy it costs less to develop them According to Bekedam out-of-pocket expenditure on medicines and other treatments by patients was a burning issue that had affected India’s health system Stating that generic medicines can help in increasing their accessibility Bekedam said that currently in India two-thirds of people’s medical expenditure comes from their own pockets which leads to hesitation among them to go for surgery and other treatment In such a situation generic medicines can provide relief to the patients "If we compare India with other countries the government’s contribution to health is just over one per cent of the GDP which is low by international standards It results in people spending out of their pockets Two-third of all health expenditure comes from people’s own pockets It also leads to hesitation among people to seek surgeries and other treatments" said Bekedam He also urged a hike in India’s health budget at a time other countries such as China Sri Lanka and Bangladesh allocate at least three per cent of their GDP dedicated to the sector The Union budget allocated Rs 4735251 crore for health in fiscal 2017-18 against Rs 3706155 crore in 2016-17 "India is a fascinating country and has similarity with other Asian countries and in terms of economic growth When there is economic growth then there is more room for investment in health I can see the potential in India that it can now put more money in terms of health and economic growth" said Bekedam Noting that 60 million Indians are in poverty due to paying health bills he said: "India should invest more in health" Having closely monitored India’s health sector for almost two years Bekedam said such investment will help the country become less vulnerable in terms of health calamities Investing in a surveillance system that can detect and respond to diseases is crucial Citing the example of three West African countries affected by Ebola he said: "These countries lost 12 per cent of their GDP Such countries are not able to detect the disease because of which they have to suffer the loss" Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis’ wife Amruta was trolled on social media on Tuesday after she attended a
