blacked out his press conference at JNU which appeared to have been called to clarify that he is a student leader not the prime minister At the rate he’s going — “The constitution is not a video which you can doctor” — either the government will smear him or the communists themselves will administer the midnightknock But maybe the government wants peace and quiet now In sharp contrast to Rahul Gandhi’s exuberant sniping — he has really found his stride as a self-deprecating gadfly — the prime minister’s parliamentary address was the most cautious and muted to date And when a right wing government produces a left-leaning budget something serious is afoot Budget mornings are hard on general news channels They have to keep the audience interested with at least three hours of speculative bilge straight up before the finance minister steps into the spotlight holding up his briefcase like a trophy of the hunt On Twitter the ever-helpful PRS reminded us that retro luggage is associated with the budget for etymological reasons ‘Budget’ derives from the medieval English bowgette imported from the French ‘bougette’ — a little bag Share This Article Related Article A relation with ‘baguette’ would have been much more sustaining on a budget morning when the finance minister had no sops for the middle class But on the Times Now budget show Dinesh Trivedi (how does an intelligent man with a clean record remain in the Trinamool Congress and intact) stepped into the breach with businesslike humour He noted that finance minister Arun Jaitley’s briefcase was unpropitiously red and that someone should have had the sense to keep it in the black Upon which his host Arnab Goswami remarked that another guest Meghnad Desai was playing the field by wearing both red and black Goswami was full of beans bounce and boister How does a man shrug off the shame of being the hanging judge of JNU and stooping so low that it looked like his channel had been assimilated into the ministry of information and broadcasting “No finance minister has ever worked so hard to deflate public expectations” said India Today’s Rahul Kanwal which was one way of saying that the fuzzy-feelgood election promise of big bang reforms had been the original jumla And one of his guests a believer in a suit marvelled at the “transformative speed” of this government It is wonderful to see that such people still exist in the wild They should be conserved Just as we must always support free speech we must stick up for biodiversity Since budgets these days seem to consist of a series of loud whimpers rather than big bangs should the finance minister be required to trot out his performative side any more Jaitley bravely turned down Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan’s offer to read the budget papers sitting down but he had to read to the point when he was tongue-twisted and spoke of differently abled people with “austim and cerebral Plassey” And there was the bit about the complexities of “monetary ballisy” too We lay people always suspected that it was precisely that but to have our fears confirmed by the finance minister himself is nevertheless mortifying The budget speech was so long that by the time he reached the end Jaitley had forgotten what he had said at the beginning He had initially presented India as a haven of peace and prosperity in a fiscally troubled world a fit destination for the world’s spare cash He closed by saying that his ministry had weathered “global and domestic headwinds” meaning that you shouldn’t come to India without your brolly Apart from one tactical blunder (fiddling with provident funds) and one fantastical promise (to double farm incomes) it wasn’t a totally execrable budget The BJP wanted to show commitment to new sections of the electorate and bravely setting aside hereditary aversions it confidently reached out to farmers and the poor Whether they enjoyed being felt up remains to be seen but the volte

Mayawati on Sunday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should stop the “emotional blackmailing” of the people who were facing hardships due to the decision “It is good that Modiji has left his family and village for the country but that does not mean that he would take immature decisions which are against the public interest and stick to them He should stop emotionally blackmailing the people who are facing hardships due to the move” she said in a statement issued in Lucknow Watch What Else Is Making News The BSP leader had earlier described the decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes as an “imposition of an undeclared economic emergency” on the country by the Modi government Mayawati alleged that the decision was aimed at “diverting the attention of the voters from the failures of the NDA government ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Punjab and Uttarakhand Assembly polls” “Just before the Assembly elections in these states Modi realised the problem of black money Ninety per cent of the people is unhappy with this decision” she claimed The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said the poor and farmers were badly hit by the demonetisation adding that the decision was not in the interest of the people Samajwadi Party’s Uttar Pradesh unit chief Shivpal Yadav also raised his voice against the move citing the problems being faced by the people “The common man is

that is on January 26 1965 Related News The listing of Hindi as an official language of India took place on September 14 1949 which since then has been commemorated as Hindi Diwas Hindi and English are India’s two official languages for the Union government while the constitution recognises a total of 22 languages Since Indian independence in 1947 efforts were made by the Union government to drive Hindi to the status as a widely used language wherein it was assisted in no small part by the rising popularity of Hindi cinema The Indian National Congress in its 1925 Karachi session decided that Hindustani — the popular undifferentiated blend of Hindi and Urdu — should be the lingua franca of the independent nation However this resolution was modified a few years later due to the influence of Hindi Sahitya Sammelan which suggested that Hindi should be the national language The resolution disappointed many members of the Congress including the Muslims and strained the communal tangle The Muslim League which had been formed in 1906 on the other hand endorsed Urdu as a symbol of Muslim identity and thus most fit to be India’s lingua franca As India’s partition became imminent in 1946 Urdu — perceived as aligned with Pakistan — was discarded from national language contenders of newly independent India The pro-Hindi/Hindustani group the latter included Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi argued for adopting one of the two languages as the sole national language while the anti-Hindi group opposed that and favored retaining English as the official language The Indian Constitution Committee in 1949 arrived at a compromise known as the Munshi-Ayyangar formula to settle the issue The name of the language was Hindi (in Devanagari script) but the proponents of Hindustani were comforted with a directive clause that directed Sanskrit as the mainstay of Hindi vocabulary with an explicit non-boycott of words within it from other languages There was no mention within it of a ‘national language’ and described only the Indian union’s two official languages The official use of English initially was to cease 15 years after the Constitution came into effect that is on January 26 1965 The pro-Hindi lobby of politicians like Balkrishna Sharma and Purushottam Das Tandon spurned the adoption of English — a remnant of imperialism — as an official language and staged demonstrations demanding Hindi as the sole national language They moved several amendments towards this effort but that could never take place as the imposition of Hindi remained unacceptable to more than half of Indians especially in the south and the east of the country Tamil Nadu saw violent protests against Hindi in 1965 after Hindi was effectively made compulsory As a result 15 years after the Constitution of India came into effect the Congress’ working committee agreed to a resolution which stated that position of English as an official language would not change unless all states consented to it Finally via the Official Languages Act of 1967 the government adopted a policy of bilingualism that indefinitely guaranteed the use of English and Hindi as official languages in the Indian Republic After 1971 India’s language policy focused on promoting regional languages by enlisting them in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India which meant that those languages would be entitled to representation on the Official Languages Commission The step was meant to curb the linguistic resentment of the multi-lingual masses The list has grown from 14 at the time of independence to 22 in 2007 Lingual politics has anything but left India In its three years in office the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi has courted a fresh batch of controversies with attempts to promote the use of Hindi perceived by critics as a renewed attempt of majoritarian imposition of the language on non-native speakers In 2014 the government ordered its officials to use Hindi on social media accounts and in government letters Modi himself in spite of being fluent in English has consistently chosen to conduct diplomacy in Hindi at international forums with global leaders Earlier this year former President Pranab Mukherjee gave a nod to the central government’s suggestion that all dignitaries and ministers must give their

doesn’t have to look further than Bangladesh’s example to know that history is rife with instances when language has been used as a vehicle to promote chauvinism and divisions The BJP and its predecessor Jan Sangh have long championed Hindi as a uniting force for India A polarisation on the issue could well consolidate the party’s north Indian Hindi speaking base However as evidenced by

Fr Carrière says these shelters are very important providing much-needed food and rest for weary refugees They are currently building one in Serbia and hope to have more along the refugee trail as part of the JRS mandate to accompany refugees In terms of service of refugees (another mandate) he stressed the need to provide education for them as a means of integration into the countries which give them asylum He said education was a key facet of Jesuit life and it was really important that Jesuits and their colleagues think about providing languages courses vocational training and other educational programmes for refugees He suggested this could be a global initiative linking in with Jesuits schools and institutions around the world Speaking of advocacy for refugees (the third mandate) he urged that JRS Ireland Jesuits and colleagues would lobby the government on issues regarding intake of refugees and best practices for their welfare And in particular he urged support for the introduction at an EU level of humanitarian visas which could be distributed rapidly to refugees making cross country transit easier for them and helping to eradicate the need for smugglers Eugene Quinn Director of JRS Ireland welcomed the insights and vision Fr Carrière speaking on behalf of JRS Europe He outlined what JRS Ireland was doing and referenced their evidence based policy paper Sharing Responsibility Saving Lives which analyses the structural causes of the refugee crisis and identifies national and regional responses He spoke of their advocacy work in terms of their active engagement with policy-makers The Irish Refugee Protection Programme and UNHCR regarding the Irish Government’s response to the crisis He said that in terms of direct support JRS Ireland staff have accompanied and supported Syrian refugees who were in Balseskin Children of Syrian refugees he noted received many toys from the JRS Ireland Christmas Toy Appeal which was supported by the staff and colleagues of various Jesuit ministries On education he outlined their work with Jesuit schools and pupils providing English language tuition for refugees He also outlined their awareness-raising projects in schools and with other bodies as well as their networking with other NGO’s and engagement with the media Many challenges still remain he said including the continuing unacceptable loss of life at sea of fleeing migrants and the absence of a unified position from EU member states that would demonstrate solidarity and shared responsibility for responding to the current crisis He said that operationally their was difficulty implementing the EU Agenda on Migration and the key agreed action of relocating one hundred and sixty thousand people from Greece and Italy By mid-January this year only two hundred and eighty two people had been relocated and the knock-on effect of this means that Ireland has not fulfilled its commitment of intake of Syrian refugees The further concern in Ireland is that a two-tier accommodation and case processing system will emerge which will unjustly discriminate against existing asylum seekers in favour of relocated persons He believes that the key question is “What is the Christian response to this crisis” The host countries and those seeking refuge in them may well subscribe to different values Both sides will have to be respectful regarding the changing shape of Europe as large numbers arrive fleeing not just war but crippling poverty “What we must not forget is the key gospel value of ‘welcoming the stranger’” he concluded Written by

Rashmi Shukla has appealed to experts and residents to come forward with suggestions for launching a mission to save the lives of two-wheeler riders activists have stressed on the need for civic bodies and police to “do their job effectively” Activists also argued that civic bodies and cantonment boards should focus on fixing city roads and sought harsher punishments for traffic violators Responding to a Pune Newsline article on November 1 ‘On Pune’s dangerous roads 175 bikers dead and counting’ Shukla had expressed the “pressing need to launch a mission to save young lives” The city police chief had also assured that she will hold talks with the heads of both the civic bodies the Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd the educational institutes in the city to come up with solutions for the issue Meanwhile activist Vivek Velenkar said “I blame the condition of the city’s roads for the frequent deaths of two-wheeler riders Potholes craters abnormally-shaped speed-breakers dim lighting on the streets missing signages and poor surface markings can be seen across the city Civic officials are clearly not serious about the lives of Pune residents” The traffic police too are at fault he added “If police act tough against rash and reckless drivers two-wheeler fatalities would see a substantial decline” he said However Velenkar said he was against making helmets compulsory “I am not against wearing helmets Helmets should be worn by every body But it should not be mandatory Over the years at least 22 experiments have been carried out on the use of helmets in Pune all of which have failed” he added “Every one should realise how important helmets are on their own Instead of mandating it there is a need for more awareness campaigns Such campaigns can be conducted by the police or social and voluntary organisations” he said Similarly activist R Sathyan said “If police keep a hawk’s eye on traffic violations especially those by two-wheeler riders this problem can be nipped in the bud” For instance he added high-octane bikes frequently pose a threat to other riders “They try to zip past other vehicles from the wrong side leading to confusion and often accidents Such riders should be hauled up” Sathyan who is a retired Income Tax officer added that bikers should also be told to use dim lights during the night “Every vehicle has this facility When streets are well lit there is no need for bikers to add to the glare which can cause accidents” He stressed that the helmet rule should be enforced strictly D G Baliga a retired Air Force officer said the biggest reasons are pothole-ridden roads and “ridiculous” sizes and shapes of speed-breakers “A pothole is repaired only if someone sustains an injury or dies…” he added On the state of speed-breakers Baliga said “I don’t think there is one speed-breaker or rumble strip that adheres to the Indian Road Congress norms They are so high and abnormally-sized that it leaves either the rider injured or the bike damaged Hundreds of riders have been injured or lost their lives after hitting the speed-breakers” “My wife and I too had survived a similar accident after we ran into an unwieldy speed-breaker and fell off our bike Luckily we escaped with a minor injury This is because I was riding extremely slow but not all riders think likewise” he added Baliga meanwhile also stressed on the need for enforcing a strict helmet rule “Helmets should be worn by both riders and pillion passengers The Motor Vehicles Act stipulates that a fine should be imposed on those who do not wear helmets A fine was recently imposed then why are the police not enforcing it strictly Police should act tough… it will help reduce the number of deaths” he said According to the city police chief many of the 175 lives lost this year could have been saved if only the bikers had worn helmets “I don’t know why Pune residents hate wearing helmets…” she had said For all the latest Pune News
