Indian Holocaust My Father`s Life and Time - Four Hundred  Ninety Four

Palash Biswas

http://indianholocaustmyfatherslifeandtime.blogspot.com/

Bharat Mukti Morcha and Rashtriya Mulnivasi Sangh demonstrated on District and SD headquarter countrywide last day Protesting the Economic Ethnic Cleansing of Mulnivasi Aboriginal Indigenous Communities. In many places, specially in Mumbai hundreds of activists were detained. In Bengal also, Demonstrations were successful. But Ambedkarites led by Mulnivasi Bamcef adopting agitational Programme against the Economic Reforms, Exclusion, Inequality, Injustice, Torture, LPG Mafia raj, Deportation, Displacement have not made headlines!

Colonel Barves called me this afternoon and we discussed the grounreports from every corner of the country. We agreed that the so much so hyped INCLUSION is in fact EXCLUSION to keep us Starved. Food Insecurty is always Man Made Calamity. Even the most Grave Famines of History in China and Bengal do root in Colonial System prevalent them but the Economists like Dr Amartya Sen NEVER does mention the fact. In India, Colonial set up has always been defended by the Ruling Brahaminical hegemony to starve the Black Untouchables. Hindi Writer PREMCHAND used to say it MAHAJANI Vyvastha. The Manusmriti Rule Post Modern sustained the Mahajani system which is based on Indian Brahaminical Caste System. Imperialism and Colonialism are not enough to explain Indian Reality of Food Insecurity. The Governement of India Incs cares for only the Ruling Class, Super RICH, security Forces and Government Employees. Which makes a MICRO Minority Brahaminical Class only while NON Brahamin NINETY Percent population has to suffer intense FOOD Insecurity. I opined that the Mulnivasi agenda of demonstration lacks two Vital Points one is AFSA and second being UNIQUE Identity Number. There may be Political Will but political will alone may not solve Problems until you have got the Vision with the understanding of History and economics. Unfortuantely,ourleaders have NOT that vison as Dr BR Ambedkar had. have we to wait for yet another Ambedkar for our Salvation. Retail FDI with continuoous  foreign capital Inflow, Destruction of agriculture and Indigenous aboriginal Production system and viability of unskilled labour have made us Helpless Prey for Self Destruction as we may not RISE against the system.Educated lot, specifically the Intelligentsia have been co opted in the Ruling Class. Governemnet Employees and those inrganised sector are quite happy with Pay Package and perks. They may not RISK their status at any cost. Parliamentary system itself has become the largest brain drain for Co Option. Who would save us then?

Govt wants quarterly report from India Inc on jobs to SC\STs, have we to believe? Specially experience of Mandal Report , Sachhar report, Mishra report, Arjun Sengupta report, Tendulkar reportand ongoing Biometric caste Census drama and PPP moded Unique Identity Project under AFSPA and Green Hunt Corporate War circumstances?

Economic exclusion and poverty in Asia

The example of castes in India
Exclusion on the basis of race, religion, and ethnicity exists in many nations under diverse social, economic, and political systems. Such exclusion is a problem in several countries in Asia. And while many Asian countries—such as China, India, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, and Pakistan— have developed equal opportunity policies to overcome economic discrimination, the nature of both market and nonmarket discrimination is still not well-understood, and neither are its direct and indirect effects on poverty. The limited number of studies on exclusion in Asia has affected the development of appropriate policies to overcome discrimination and its impact on poverty.
This brief presents the argument that market- and nonmarket-related forms of discrimination directly affect poverty but also exacerbate it indirectly by reducing growth. The brief highlights the need for socially inclusive policies; offers an analysis of the consequences of discrimination through the historical example of scheduled castes in India; and indicates potential policy options to redress exclusion and its effects.

However,the government has asked the corporate India to file quarterly report on number of jobs they have created for SCs, STs and other weaker sections, even as industry expressed its inability to reserve jobs for them. "They (government) want quarterly report to be submitted to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion in the industry ministry," industry sources said.

Earlier, India Inc was required to file such reports annually. Reserving jobs in private sector or affirmative action was part of the national Common Minimum Programme of UPA-I. At present, the law provides for reservation for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, among others, in government and public sector jobs, besides quota in education.
Prime Minister''s Office, had last month called a meeting of industry chambers, including CII, Ficci and Assocham, to discuss if they would ask their members to reserve five per cent jobs for the disadvantaged sections. "Our stand is that there should not be any statutory reservation in the private sector but simultaneously the private sector''s responsibility is to fulfil commitment that has been given to the government in writing," an industrial official who participated in the meeting said.

During the meeting, the industry said it would be "voluntarily implementing" the inclusive growth by giving preference to SC\ST candidates up to the managerial level posts. Finding it difficult to enforce employment quota in private sector, the DIPP had asked CII, Ficci and Assocham to consider giving five per cent of the jobs to weaker sections wherever fiscal incentives are given.

Industry gets a variety of fiscal sops which include export related duty credit, area specific income tax exemptions which are also extended on R&D budget of companies. The industry on it part claims that it has several initiatives for training and employment of the SCs and STs from the weaker sections of the society.

The CII has come out with several reports showing that quite a few of its member organisations have been working on affirmative action.

One of the big-ticket reforms held off for long is set to materialise with the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) giving an in-principle nod for allowing FDI in multi-brand retail, highly placed sources with knowledge of the matter said. The move would be a game changer in Indian retailing space, with international players like Wal-Mart, Careffour and Tesco, among others eager to seize the initiative as and when the sector is thrown open to FDI.
Sources said consultation paper put out by the department of industrial policy and promotion (DIPP)—the nodal FDI policymaker—that suggested opening up of retail in phases has already got support from key wings of the government like the finance ministry and department of consumer affairs. Once DIPP gets the nod of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi—which is expected soon given the PMO gesture—it will move a Cabinet note in this regard, officials involved in the policy-making process said.

Economist Arjun Sengupta is No More.Ashok Mitra is still Active and writes often.Both of these Economists had been the main architects of Mrs Indira Gandhi`s Socialist Economic Policies leading to Nationalisation and Regulation. It is normal that the Post Modern Media may not like the duo as it lives on FREE Market democracy and is the best advocate of Market Sovreignity with Economic Reforms meant for Free capital Inflow and DEREGULATION and Disinvestment! Thus, media understandably underplayed the demise of the Economist Arjun Sengupta! Anand Bazzar Patrika which have a set of Economist Columnists as the Bunch of Jokers, has published a front page single column brief only. The Publishers is the Sponsor of Dr Amartya Sen!

Arjun Kumar Sengupta, eminent economist, Rajya Sabha MP and the man who stunned policy makers with estimates that 77 per cent of India's population live on less than R20 a day, passed away in the Capital on Sunday, leaving behind a policy footprint that changed the way poverty alleviation programmes
are discussed in India.He was 73 and survived by his wife and a daughter.

    The cremation will take place at the Lodhi Road crematorium at 11 am on Monday.

    The man running Indian Economy these days for the Government of India Incs may NOT think beyond LINKING Indian Economy to United States of America!

    Emerging economies can expand at a "reasonable pace" in the next four to five years even if growth in developed nations is moderate, Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia said.

    India's economy is forecast to grow by 8.5 per cent this year, he said in his keynote address at the World Capital Markets Symposium organised by Malaysia's Securities Commission today.

    However, he expressed the hope that India's GDP growth rate will go up to 9 per cent in the near future.

    He said developing countries will be able to maintain strong economic growth rates, even though the primary drivers have slowed down.

    Ahluwalia also noted that India needed to pump in a lot more into its infrastructure development programme.

    Commenting on the state of the world economy, the Planning Commission Deputy Chairman said that growth was anaemic and there were fears of a global slowdown.

    He noted that growth in the US, the world's biggest economy, has been sputtering, but emerging markets were doing well.

    India wants US to allow high-end weapons technology tie-ups

    WASHINGTON: Keen to diversify its weapons procurement sourcing, India has told US to ease its export control restrictions to allow high-end weapons technology tie-ups between the two nations.


    Saying that export control restrictions were a "matter of concern", the Defence Minister A K Antony beginning his crucial visit here said, "we want an early solution to that (export control restriction)."


    With the transfer of weapons technology and sale of American armament systems and platforms high on his agenda, Antony, ahead of his talks with top Pentagon officials here said India now wants to transform its military-to-military relationship from a buyer-seller to co-production and joint production of armament systems.


    India which was dependent on Russian technology and armaments in the Cold War era has recently sought to diversify its weapons purchases and concluded multi billion dollar deals with the US to purchase weapon locating radars, giant transport aircraft, new technology long-range naval surveillance planes and giant warships.


    US has expressed its readiness to sell India high-end weapons technology, but Congressional export control restrictions are coming in the way of sale of frontline weapon systems.


    Referring to these restrictions, Antony, heading a high-level defence delegation comprising top officials from his ministry and high ranking officers from the three services told reporters on arrival, "Both countries have a stake in strengthening military ties."


    On procurements, the Defence Minister said that the defence sales had increased steadily in high technology areas. "Many are in the pipeline... some through multi-vendor routes, many more would come."


    In the course of his stay here, Antony would hold wide-ranging talks with Defence Secretary Robert Gates, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Security Advisor Gen (Retd) James Jones.


    Echoing sentiments expressed by Antony, the US Defence Secretary has said that Washington is keen to strengthen and expand America's military-to-military ties with India.


    On India's concerns over restrictions on export of high technology items, Gates said that this was high on the agenda and we would like to see these restrictions removed.



    In the last few years Sengupta's rich body of work has significantly influenced India's policy-making, particularly in the areas of poverty, food management and social security for unorganised sector workers.

    Sengupta, who has had a very distinguished and multi-faceted career as an academician, economic policy administrator, diplomat and a parliamentarian, will perhaps be best remembered for his seminal work on estimates of poverty in India.

    National Commission for Enterprises in the Unorganised Sector, which he chaired, estimated that 836 million people – about 77 per cent of the population—of India were "poor and vulnerable" and survived on R20 or less per day.

    The Sengupta Commission report forms a core component of the debate on the proposed Food Security Bill that the government plans to introduce.

    A PhD from MIT and an M.A. in Economics from the Calcutta University, Sengupta has also had distinguished academic career. He has taught at the Delhi School of Economics, London School of Economics and The Institute of Social Studies, The Hague among others.

    Vice-President Hamid Ansari said "Sengupta report on the unorganised sector is a guiding force to provide minimum social security for all unorganised workers."

    Amit Mitra, secretary general, FICCI said Sengupta would always be remembered for his "path-breaking report on the informal sector of India."

    Former director of Indian Council for Research in International Economic Relations Rajiv Kumar said Sengupta's work was not restricted to just the Indian economy.

    "He was also a tall international policy maker. His work on Latin America which included handling the public debt of that area is seminal," Kumar said.

    US to focus on business in tier II, III cities: Sanchez

    With Indo-US bilateral trade poised to touch the $50-billion mark, the United States is keen to tap business opportunities emanating from Tier II and III cities which are not yet on the world radar, a senior US Government official said.

    "Business people from all over the world come to Mumbai, Delhi and other important cities throughout India. But we want American business to be the first to come to Pune, Nagpur and any other city that is not on the world radar yet," US Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade, Francisco J Sanchez, told reporters here on Monday.

    Sanchez is here on a three-day trade policy trip and will inaugurate the Growth in Emerging Metropolitan Sectors (GEMS) conference in Pune tomorrow. This visit is ahead of US President Barack Obama's visit to India in November.

    The International Trade Administration's new GEMS will focus on building commercial ties between the US and India's emerging cities.

    "In implementing President Obama's National Export initiative, we hope that India and the US will reap the rewards of increased trade and investment in terms of job creation and an improved standard of living," Sanchez said.

    While there is an immense opportunity for the US across sectors, Sanchez said that infrastructure and energy provided a tremendous business potential.

    "Infrastructure provides tremendous business opportunity as the US has great expertise, products and services. The second area which provides good opportunity is the energy sector and within energy, the alternative energy segment has a tremendous potential for growth," he said.

    When asked the US' take on India's plan to introduce a civil liability clause in the nuclear bill, he said the US Government and business community is pleased that the sub-continent is focused on the civil liability issue.

    "However, there are concerns on how it is structured and it provides too much uncertainty for many parts of our civil nuclear sector. I think we would like see more work done on the issue to provide certainty for the civil nuclear sector," he said, adding "uncertainty here means when there is concern about unlimited liability."

    Asked about visa restrictions (H1 visa) imposed by America, Sanchez said in any important mature relationship there will be disagreement and conflict. "How we manage these tensions is very important," he said.

    Arjun Sengupta report:836 million Indians live on less than Rs 20 a day

    An overwhelming 836 million people in India live on a per capita consumption of less than Rs 20 a day, according to the findings of the Arjun Sengupta report on the Conditions of Work and Promotion of Livelihood in the Unorganised Sector. The report is based on government data for the period between 1993-94 and 2004-05.
    While the numbers rose by a staggering 100 million, the numbers of the new rich has also grown by 93 million. "Our survey is very scientific. The other poverty estimates looked at the absolute poor only but we look at different categories of poor," Chairman, National Commission for Enterprises in Unorganised Sector, Arjun Sengupta said.So, who are the ones who have actually benefitted from the boom in the economic growth of the country?

    The middle class and the rich grew from 162 million to 253 million while the neo rich of 91 million. The middle class grew from 15.5 per cent to 19.3 per cent but the extreme poor have also benefited (274 to 237 million) – 43 million of them to be precise. Their per capita consumption has gone up from Rs 9 to Rs 12."The rich tend to hide their consumption. So if you account for that, they are actually richer than the report reflects. This again reflects the fact that the gap between the rich and poor is even wider," Sengupta explained.

    One is classified as absolutely poor if the per capita consumption is less than Rs 9 a day. However, if the per capita consumption is Rs 13 a day, then the individual is above the poverty line. So, the definitions of poverty are sometimes difficult to understand.The justification for economic reforms was supposed to be the trickle down effect but for those who live in trying conditions 10 years of economic reforms seems to have made little difference. Is it any wonder that those leaders who are seen to be reformers can never win the popular vote?
