her bank account since she was a child As per banking norms once a minor becomes major a guardian cannot claim the money as his own but in this case the court ruled in favour of the father citing “The moment she defied the family and eloped without consent the father felt cheated and will not want his hard-earned money to be siphoned off by an unfaithful child” I can sympathise with the rage the father must be feeling But I have to wonder just because we clothe feed and educate our children are we entitled to expectations or a say in their future choices and lifestyles In India especially parents even the most emancipated and liberal ones try to exert an incredible amount of control in their adult children’s lives My mother is still scared rather petrified of her 91-year-old mother whose sarcastic barbs fly fast if she skips a weekly lunch with her It’s wholly normal for parents to choose their kids’ careers and they also often consider it their birthright to decide who their children should marry Our culture relentlessly supports the idea that parents simply by virtue of bringing us into this world deserve unswerving gratitude and worship for all they sacrificed for us So much so the now-disgraced Asaram Bapu initiated a Mata Aur Pita Pujan Divas on February 14 2012 as an option for Indian youth to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a new way Asaram’s proposal was supported by many prominent politicians like Pranab Mukherjee India has also got to be the only country where somebody would actually produce (and air) a TV show with a nauseating title like Maat Pitaah ke Charnon Mein Swarg that ran on Colors in 2009 As a concept a serial about respect for elders resonates with the audience and actually passes off as entertainment Karan Johar’s cheesy film Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham was a hit and it had the tagline “It’s all about loving your parents” Of all the relationships in life the most sacred and revered bond common through history and every culture is the one between a parent and child It is the only truly unconditional love You can divorce a spouse not speak to a sibling or fight with a friend but cutting off your own children has got to be one of the most difficult and heartbreaking experiences ever For decades people in India have gone through life toiling so tirelessly for future generations that it gives them a peculiar hold over kids well into adulthood So love control duty and guilt are inextricably intertwined There is a sublime and in my opinion a completely misplaced expectation that no matter what you achieve or do or how old you are at home you must remain subservient (and forever grateful) to your parents when actually respect flows both ways Cribbing about parents isn’t the prerogative only of surly teenagers Put five friends in their 40s together and sooner rather than later the complaints start pouring out An interfering parent is often the single greatest point of contention in a marriage But mata pita mohis so deeply ingrained or hardwired into most of us that we tend to view parents philosophically and tolerantly and fervently hope our spouses will do the same Even when they’re at their most provoking It doesn’t help that the newspapers are full of stories of unimaginable cruelty by wicked avaricious children who cast away old parents ruthlessly and grab their property In the West when there’s a parent-child estrangement it’s assumed the parents must have done something terrible Here it’s the reverse No one questions where the parent went wrong and the son and wicked daughter-in-law are almost always vilified There is some breathing space required for every relationship to flourish Even one that American writer James Salter describes “Having a child beside one at peace is the realest the deepest

Block official While most embassies are located in Chanakyapuri area diplomats mostly live in south and central Delhi localities such as Vasant Vihar Satya Niketan Anand Niketan Golf Links and West End “It is not in the embassy’s control if the child of a diplomat is affected in a south Delhi locality since that is the responsibility of civic bodies Diplomats are as exposed to dengue like any other citizen of Delhi” a European diplomat said Inside their compounds most embassies hire private agencies for fumigation since the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) does fumigation only outside embassy premises The NDMC it is learnt has already raised the issue of staff not being given access to check mosquito-breeding inside embassies The Health Secretary is learnt to have written to Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar requesting him to issue directions to embassies and foreign missions to allow NDMC staff inside Sources said the MCD had detected heavy mosquito-breeding conditions in five embassies Ghana Singapore Malaysia Ethiopia and the Czech Republic last month While it is the individual embassy’s prerogative to allow NDMC squads or not embassies and embassy-run schools are taking the issue quite seriously The Indian Express has learnt that the American Embassy school has put out advisories for its students to cover up while the French embassy school has got a French doctor to give a talk to students and teachers on the precautions that need to be taken The German school has distributed a list of doctors and hospitals with their mobile numbers and ambulance services so that their diplomats can directly contact them A British High Commission spokesperson told The Indian Express “We cannot discuss the health of diplomats but we have passed on general advice about covering up using mosquito repellants etc Fogging machines are used regularly at the High Commission compound” A US embassy functionary also said diplomats and staff working at the mission have been asked to be “careful” The High Commissions of Australia Canada and France also said adequate measures are being taken The German embassy said they have hired private agencies to conduct fumigation inside the premises The Italian embassy has requisitioned a team of two Italian doctors from Rome to treat Italian marine Salvatore Girone who is suffering from dengue For all the

towards the “bhoot bangla” But once it is launched past the administrative hitches the structure will soon be Mumbai’s latest coastal police station The marine unit of Mumbai police comprises four police stations — Yellow Gate Mumbai Sagari Wadala and Sewri – and will now get Sagari II Flanked by two coconut trees on either sides and one 20 foot bamboo plant before the entry the nameless bungalow gets repute as a “bhoot bangla” because it is the only property which can be accessed in the lane opposite Gorai’s only Hindu Christian and Muslim cemetery “The landmark to locate this police station is to first ask for the cemetery and then the bhoot bangla next to it” said a 27 year-old local who sells TVs Though rented earlier this year by the Mumbai Police the bungalow with a scarlet gate was finally purchased in August “It is due to be operational in a couple of weeks Only the manforce is to be allotted The set-up in terms of furniture and computers is all ready inside the police station” said Kirankumar Chavan deputy commissioner of police (port zone) Senior police officers said that after the new coastal police station is operational Sagari-I police station in Mahim will man areas between TIFR in Colaba and the Bandra jetty while Sagari-II police station will look after Bandra jetty up to Gorai beach including the Bandra-Worli sea link and will cover an area of about 12 nautical miles “The Sagari-II police station will also help launch operations of any kind besides patrolling and security and the staff have been given AK-47s self-loading rifles and other sophisticated weapons heavy search lights and a few patrolling trawlers” said a senior police officer The irony for now is that the police are left guarding the property itself Though the police station is not yet operational four constables are deputed as “caretakers” of the property everyday A senior officer said that this is “to protect the machinery and the furniture stored inside the bungalow to neglect the chances of a robbery” “There are four of us in the day and another four in the night who protect the property including the weapons inside the bungalow” said an on-duty constable The cemeteries too keep the police busy “Locals have been telling us various tales of this place being haunted We keep most of the lights switched on to keep these ‘ghosts’ away Even some of us (policemen) have beliefs but there are so many tales that we try not to make fun of someone’s fears” said a police constable who has been posted at the bungalow since the past two months Senior police officers have said that another reason for the delay is because the location of the police station could not be finalised “A property at Erangal beach that would have been owned by the police was first strongly considered However it had to be built and would have taken more time The furniture of the Sagari II police station had been stored on the premises of MHB police station for more than a year Next week this police station could finally be operational” said a senior police officer Officers have also cited bandobast duties during the festive seasons of Ganpati and Navratri that have impeded the launch of the police station Since August the police signboard indicating the station’s name has been wrapped with a silver cover Constables posted at the new police station say that they have been sitting on benches opposite the bungalow eagerly waiting for the board of police’s 94th police station to be unveiled “By now every local in the area would have come and asked us more than four times that when is it (Sagari II police station) going to be operational We are waiting to give them a different answer but that’s not in our hands” said a police constable For all the

this project will be challenging as well as interesting he said: “Just like ‘Kanche’ this is going to be another period film This means I won’t have the freedom to use any instrument I like and I have to rely mostly on melodies With not much scope to experiment and I’m not complaining I still have to deliver good music and that’s what makes this project challenging and interesting at the same time” Starring Nandamuri Balakrishna in the titular role: “Gautamiputra Satakarni” happens to be the actor’s 100th film Chirantan admits he can already feel the pressure but he’s not going to let it bother him “I’m only thinking of having fun on this project Anybody can deliver good music when you’re working on a regular project It’s not the same when you’re working on a period film because it’s set in a certain era and the music needs to match the milieu” he said adding one can’t compose music for a period film from a commercial angle “Even when I worked on aKanche’ I didn’t tell myself I should deliver a chartbuster soundtrack I enjoyed working on the album and I never expected aItu Itu’ song to become so popular I’m going to follow the same approach on this project too” he said The film

Thus did Winston Churchill forewarn against policy inertia and political paralysis The collapse of the Northern and Eastern grids last week may have been triggered by the unauthorised overdrawing of power and slipshod management of procedure and regulationbut it was not caused by it That was merely the feather that broke the systems back The cause lay in years of policy procrastination The malaise of the power sector is well known Multiple committees have written reports and detailed the steps required to redress the situation The price structure has to be rationalised; the state electricity boards must be put back on their financial feet; the transmission and distribution network should be privatised (at least in part); theft must be contained; corruption and the coal mafia should be stamped outetc These recommendations have been accepted in principlebut they have not been fully implemented As a resultthe sector has stumbled from one crisis to another building up to the embarrassment of last week Can we hope that the disaster will concentrate the minds of decision-makers Who knowsbut what is clear is that last weeks power shutdown may not be an isolated one-off for the energy sector A crisis of comparable magnitude could hit the petroleum sector too if government continues to procrastinate over pricing policy It is now well documented that the oil marketing companies (OMCs) IOCBPC and HPCL underrecover approximately Rs 13 and Rs 27 for every litre of diesel and kerosene and Rs 230 for each cylinder of domestic LPG that they retail Less well known is the fact that in FY 2011-12the exploration and production companiesONGC/ OILreceived only $55 for every barrel of crude oil sold to the OMCs The international price averaged $117 per barrel The consequential impact of this administered pricing has been to push the OMCs to the financial edge; they have had to ratchet up their bank borrowings last year it touched Rs 130000 crore and cut back on essential investments in new projectsmaintenance and R&D It could force them to default on their payment obligations if cash losses continue to mount Supplies would then get disrupted and product shortages would appear at the retail forecourt As for ONGC/ OILthey have had to scale back their domestic exploration efforts and their competitiveness in the international market for new acreage has been weakened Their reserves might also get wiped out in two years I am sure the government will not allow its petroleum companies to go under But as we have seen in the case of Air India and now in last weeks disasterno sector is sacrosanct Policy procrastination can so weaken foundations that an inadvertent regulatory lapsean informational glitch accidentor just human error can bring down the superstructure of the most strategic maharatnasWe need to remind ourselves of the three verities of the energy sector Oneit is capital and technology intensive Twoit takes long to change direction And threeit cannot be divorced from politics Energy policy mustthereforebe formulated through a long-focustechnology-tinted and politically nuanced eye glass This requires the adoption of a two-pronged approach One prong should be focused on mitigating the avoidable costs of short-term populism The other should be looking to build the foundations for longer-term sustainability The objective should be to eventually have both converge Let me illustrate such an approach with an example from the petroleum sector The government does not have the coalition mandateor perhaps the political willto align petroleum prices to the market The government cannothoweverallow the petroleum companies to fall off the edge The short-term prong of policy should look to shifting the subsidy burden from the companies balance sheet onto the governments Subsidies should be paid directly from the budget through direct cash transfers and/ or a stamp card The finance minister will no doubt face parliamentary brickbats for deepening the fiscal deficit but were diesel and kerosene supplies disruptedthe public onslaught could be even more painful The longer prong should push to substitute Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) for diesel in long-haul transportation This is because diesel accounts for the bulk of the subsidy outgo and truckers are amongst the largest consumers of diesel Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is already retailed in several cities But CNG cannot be used for long-distance trucks because it has only 20 per cent of the energy content of diesel LNGon the other handis 25 times denser than CNG There will of course be costs The truck engines will have to be modified and an LNG retail network created But the benefits could be significant Firstgiven that the trade parity price of diesel is about $19 per million British thermal units (mmbtu) and that of LNG $11 per mmbtuthere would be an $8 per mmbtu fuel-cost saving were LNG substituted for diesel today Secondgas is a cleaner fuel than diesel Thirdthe subsidy outgo would reduce and this would narrow the fiscal deficit The message is simple: if we want to avoid a repeat of the disaster of last weekshort- and long-term solutions must be actionedpolitics must no longer be the excuse for policy procrastination and the Churchillian warning should be taken to heart The writer is chairman of Shell companies in India Views are personal

making their living It is from their remittances constituting more than half of our total foreign exchange earnings that we get the wherewithal to buy arms from Israel Their safety is crucially dependent on the Arab goodwill that we have patiently built with Arab and Iranian regimes monarchist or republican revolutionary or Islamist The region is the second or third most important destination for our exports And it is from there that we source 70 per cent of our oil imports The issue that most unites the otherwise fractious nations of West Asia and Iran is Israel It is in this respect that owing to the immense foresight and sheer goodness of Jawaharlal Nehru we made what till recently was an indelible mark on the West Asian and Iranian consciousness Gandhiji set the tone with his celebrated remark in 1938 “Palestine belongs to the Palestinians as England belongs to the English and France to the French” In keeping with that but recognising that Palestine was also home to a large and growing number of Jews Nehru invited both Palestinian and Zionist representatives to the Asian Relations Conference in March 1947 Inevitably the two clashed and it was left to Nehru to bring them together The audience burst into thunderous applause when the heads of the two delegations shook hands In keeping with that spirit India played a leading role in the two committees set up by the UN to consider the future of Palestine at the termination of the British mandate While the West and the Soviet Union were united in their demand that Palestine be partitioned to create a sovereign homeland for the Jews India itself under the shadow of a looming blood-soaked Partition took the lead in arguing for a single federal state in which there would be two autonomous Jewish and Arab regions but with a common central government democratically elected by all the citizens of a common state To begin with it looked as if the Indian formula would work as a compromise between the two diametrically opposed positions taken by the Arab states and the Zionists but slowly as pressure on the smaller states mounted from the major powers they moved to the other side and Palestine was ultimately partitioned The consequences have been more far-reaching and far more prolonged than was the case with the partitioning of India But every dire prophecy of the Indian delegation has been more than tragically fulfilled with terrible human consequences over the last 67 years The alternative two-state solution has been proposed but is far from being realised Israel with all the cards in its hands has encroached so far into Palestinian territory as to have reversed the shares originally intended from 95 per cent for the Arabs and 5 per cent for the Jews to 95 per cent for Israel and 5 per cent for Palestine that too a Palestine split into a series of Bantustans and divided by Israeli territory between the West Bank and the Gaza strip besides being peppered with illegal Israeli settlements For a moment in 1992 the Palestinians (but not the brilliant chief negotiator Hanan Ashrawi) were befooled into believing that the Oslo process had handed them the state of Palestine on a platter When I then argued that it was not a state but merely panchayati raj in Gaza I was accused of trying to be more Arab than the Arabs But ultimately the truth dawned and the Palestinians realised they had been tricked into returning from Tunisia to Gaza where they were locked up and effectively isolated from the world Not wishing to be more Arab than the Arabs PV Narasimha Rao decided the moment had come to upgrade relations with Israel to full diplomatic level Since then and particularly after Israel supplied the shells we needed to fire our Bofors guns in the Kargil war relations with Israel have boomed while those with the Arab world have slid to now hit rock bottom How rock bottom was revealed in Narendra Modi’s performance at Fortaleza His intervention on the merciless aerial bombing and ground assault by the Israelis on Gaza was limited to three sentences First he said he was “concerned” at the ongoing “conflict” Concerned not outraged Earlier his foreign office spokesman had equated Israel with Hamas overlooking the hundreds of Palestinian innocents now nearing 600 that were and are being killed whereas the retaliatory Hamas rocket attacks have killed much fewer Israelis Moreover Hamas has no army navy or air force Its port has been blockaded its solitary airport dismantled The only way out is underground tunnels; so the Israelis slaughter those who live above the tunnels How can Hamas’s military capabilities be compared to those of Israel Yet from Modi no condemnation no harsh words just mere “concern” over the one-sided ongoing massacre His second sentence is brief to the point of abruptness “We support a negotiated solution” But who broke off negotiations last year just when they were coming to fruition Israel And why Because Hamas and Fatah had buried their differences and come together In a classic divide and rule manoeuvre Israel walked out of the peace talks and refuses to come back so long as Hamas sits at the table Surely therefore the line on “negotiated solutions” should be addressed to Israel first And for negotiations to commence surely aggression and the killing of the lambs has to stop Who is presiding over this slaughterhouse Israel of course And therefore whose responsibility is it that the butchery be ended Israel’s of course But Modi has nothing to say about a ceasefire as the necessary precondition for negotiations to be resumed Third Modi said a negotiated solution would “inspire hope and confidence” the world over That’s all very well but surely the cat to be belled is Israel Let them cease fire on the condition that talks are resumed — and the talks will be resumed But a ceasefire without talks is the road to nowhere And although Israel claims to be prepared to cease fire it is not ready to negotiate unless Fatah dissolves its newfound ties with Hamas Finally what of the BRICS Paragraph 38 of the Fortaleza Declaration blabbers on and on about Palestine but it neither condemns Israel nor calls for a ceasefire Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj take convenient cover behind that In doing so they forget Nehru who referring to the problems we had had in the Palestine committees said in the Constituent Assembly on December 4 1947: “Inevitably that means we have to plough a lonely furrow” But he added “Nonetheless that is the only honourable and right position by which we shall ultimately gain national and international prestige” Modi and Swaraj cowering behind the BRICS position is not an edifying sight The BJP has betrayed its own clarion call in its

would undermine sovereign immunity and potentially expose US officials and service members to litigation A file photo of Barack Obama AP That technical legal argument will struggle to be heard over emotive accusations that Obama is putting relations with Saudi Arabia before 9/11 victims Republican nominee Donald Trump has already tried to paint Obama and his would-be successor Hillary Clinton as weak on terrorism Clinton has preemptively voiced support for congressional efforts "to secure the ability of 9/11 families and other victims of terror to hold accountable those responsible" according to Jesse Lehrich a campaign spokesman But with the election less than 50 days away the Republican-led Congress will try to deal Obama a significant political blow by overriding his veto Such overrides are rare and this one would show the White House to be almost cripplingly weak as Obama tries to tick off remaining legislative goals in the twilight of his presidency Obama has issued 11 vetoes so far in his presidency none of which have garnered the two-thirds opposition needed for an override But Republicans will need the backing of Democratic lawmakers who the White House is lobbying furiously Congressional sources said Thursday that White House appeals to security minded senators like Dianne Feinstein may have been enough to avoid a override vote That would be a blow to families of 9/11 victims who have campaigned for the law —convinced that the Saudi government had a hand in the attacks that killed almost 3000 people Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens Declassified documents showed US intelligence had multiple suspicions about links between the Saudi government and the attackers but no link has definitively been proven "While in the United States some of the 9/11 hijackers were in contact with and received support or assistance from individuals who may be connected to the Saudi government" a finding read But a victory for the White House could help ease relations with Saudi Arabia already strained by Obama’s engagement with Iran and the July release of a secret report on Saudi’s involvement in the attacks A senior Saudi Prince reportedly threatened to pull billions of dollars out of US assets if it becomes law but Saudi officials now distance themselves from that alledged threat The White House is getting some backing from diplomatic allies who share concerns about the United States becoming a venue for citizens to sue governments In a diplomatic protest note obtained by AFP the European Union warned the rules would be "in conflict with fundamental principles of international law" "State immunity is a central pillar of the international legal order" the "demarche" noted adding that other countries could take "reciprocal action" In a letter to lawmakers also seen by AFP former secretary of defense William Cohen former CIA boss Michael Morell and Stephen Hadley George W Bush’s national security advisor were among a group of high profile security figures to warn the legislation would hurt US interests "Our national security interests our capacity to fight terrorism and our leadership role in the world would be put in serious jeopardy" they said By: Express News Service | Lucknow | Updated: January 2 2016 4:26 am Related News MORTAL REMAINS of Mohammed Yusuf who died in an accident in Riyadh on December 10

continues to provide the worst service in the skies Just recently its on-time performance was shown to be much lower than other carriers that employ far less people per aircraft In short Air India does less work through more personnel And all this colossal waste is funded by public money that is money hard earned and produced by you and me That Air India still continues to be funded by public money with its very high employee per aircraft number and low on time performance is a matter of shame Any matter of shame on the part of who are not shameless would have provoked some action However the government seems to be in no mood to stop funding Air India and stop haemorrhaging of public money Thus in an age of republicanism and democracy the expensive Maharajah burns public money like all maharajahs have done in the past The turbaned Maharajah icon of Air India is now a cruel cruel joke Representational image Reuters The amount of subsidy that has been injected into Air India by the people of the various states of the Indian Union is huge Since the Union government extracts this money directly from states and puts them in a common pool this element of states is not apparent I will discuss later how and why this matters Since April 2012 the Union government has pumped in more than Rs 22280 crore to Air India’s core equity as part of its turnaround plan This is part of the Rs 30000 crore committed to Air India by Union government as part of its turnaround plan Let’s realise what this subsidy is for This is for passenger air services — a service that less than 5% of the population will ever avail and that too is the top 5% earning group of the population However the subsidy for this would come from the people of the states at large and hence this is the worst form of regressive subsidy where the poor are subsidising a company that provides services to the rich That this scandal continues is broad daylight is probably a huge sign of the classist nature of public discourse and policy making in the Indian Union But there is a huge huge hidden subsidy that no one talks about and that does not seem to matter Let me explain by example I am employed in a government-funded institution One would think that public funds or government funds since they are funds of the people should be held to the highest level of thrift and value-for-money when spending and should not be wasted one bit since I am spending money given in trust by the public The standards of responsibility would have to be high So let’s say you want to travel from point A to point B The best use of public money for such travel is obviously to find the cheapest ticket However that’s not what Government of India has stipulated It says whatever the cost the travel has to be on Air India And Air India is not known for offering cheapest tickets So for every ticket that is bought by a person of Government of India-funded travel for official duty or otherwise money is wasted since Air India needs to get the business Now think of the number of government employees and employees in government-aided institutions including state governments The number is huge and this huge business goes to Air India without competition without any concern for saving public money This farce of indirectly subsidising Air India by huge amounts goes to even greater farcical and economically damaging lengths when international travel is concerned Again any sane individual or institution would opt for cheapest tickets by shortest route Makes sense right Not if the travel is Government of India-funded that is funded by money managed by Government of India after the money has been collected from the peoples of the states So the travel has to be on Air India whatever the price Recently I checked that on certain India-Europe sectors lowest Air India economy class fairs were double that of the cheapest available option That is the colossal waste that is done such that Air India receives indirect subsidy What if Air India does not go to a place Then one needs to go to the nearest place where Air India goes and from take a flight by one of its codeshare partners to the destination In short it does not matter how far from the final destination this “nearest” point is this is what has to be done Efficiency financial management and plain and simple logic be damned The Air India subsidy and loot of public funds has now been given a more organised structure through its special Leave Travel Concession (LTC) fares Tens of lakhs of government employees are eligible for holiday travel cost by air and this too has to be booked by Air India Shamefully in this captive market rather than give discounts to save money Air India actually charges 50% to even 140% more than normal Air India fares which are not the cheapest anyway Should citizens of the Indian Union just stand aside and see this colossal loot happening every day It is very clear that the Union government ministries are in connivance in this scheme of wasting public money like this through these indirect subsidies to Air India Does the government have no shame This Air-India-only stipulation should be the subject of a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) and must be challenged in court The reason that the Union government of India does not want to stop subsidising Air India and divest it is because that will stop the use of Air India as a tool of politics Air India is subsidised by people of all states of the Indian Union in proportion to the revenue such states produce Which is why Kolkata and Chennai both major metros and capitals of states where none of the so-called national parties namely Congress and BJP have held power in the last nearly 50 years or have any chance of winning power in the next 10 years have no direct connectivity to London in spite of the respective state government’s long standing request on this Contrast this to the direct flight to London from Gujarat’s Ahmedabad announced by the ex-Chief Minister of Gujarat and the present Prime Minister of the Indian Union during his pubic rally amongst cheering NRIs in the Wembley stadium of London Aren’t route announcements supposed to be matters of Air India’s corporate policy and not a matter of political decision making and announcements How does Union government get to politically decide where to spend what money which routes to start where when the money for Air India comes from all the states of the Indian Union Air India is a sign of the Union government’s limitless power and control over resources of the Indian Union It is time that the Union government leaves our resources in the states along and stops the present waste of public resources including indirect subsidies by selling off Air India to the highest bidder In a federal democratic republic the people shouldnt be forced to fund a white elephant called the Maharajah Written by Manvendra Singh | Published: January 30 2016 12:07 am The crisis of combating terrorism is that India is fighting a 21st century battle with 19th century institutions Top News In ‘How wires got crossed in Delhi’ (The Indian Express January 9) the writers probing Pathankot make a claim both perplexing and dangerous They say “Even though the National Security Guard a political organisation falls under the home minister orders on its use and deployment bypassed him” Whether the home minister was bypassed or not isn’t the moot point what’s worrisome is to claim that the NSG is a political organisation This assertion needs to be corrected The NSG was certainly raised through parliamentary intervention in the mid-1980s Much can be made of the NSG its quality or lack thereof Over the years reams have been written about this deputation-based organisation its raising and subsequent deployment its successes analysed threadbare What’s important is that India is unique in reinventing the wheel wherein it raised the NSG rather than creating it as a sub-unit like other countries Most such intervention forces worldwide are part of an existing establishment A manpower-plenty country India seems able to afford this luxury Another NSG fact needs careful attention — that it has possibly the worst teeth-to-tail ratio of any combat force This requires urgent political attention rather than the prescription offered by P Chidambaram in ‘Price of procrastination’ (The Indian Express January 8) His years of experience in government have led him to propose the country immediately constitute the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) Superior intellect and first-rate analysis are always the ultimate weapons of war or counter-terrorism in this case But creating yet another institution doesn’t lead to administrative efficiency or speedy decision-making The National Investigation Agency (NIA) created after the 2008 Mumbai attacks is simply another CBI with the additional charge of federal crime in this instance terror-related cases A strengthened CBI could well have covered all the charters now given to the NIA The crisis of combating terrorism is that India is fighting a 21st century battle with 19th century institutions Either the institutions must go or they must be remodelled to suit contemporary requirements The country can’t have it both ways — older institutions continuing and additional ones continually placed on top Saddling more baggage doesn’t make for a modern approach to combating terrorism India is and will always be a federal country This aspect must be the cornerstone of policymaking beginning where India largely lives — in the community and in the states Chidambaram points to an already existing structure within the Intelligence Bureau (IB) the Multi-Agency Centre (MAC) and its subsidiaries in every state The MAC does essentially what the NCTC is supposed to do so why go down that route when the edifice is already in place Instead of spending time effort and monies on creating a new organisation it’s far simpler and speedier to make an existing one better By all standards the IB is outstanding with a work ethic unique in the government of India In the game of preventing terror strikes the IB still plays the lead role And when it already has a MAC functioning within it it’s far better to institutionalise that arrangement than build an additional establishment Political capital is better spent on improving the MAC and its variants in the states By all estimates the NCTC will do what the MAC is already capable of doing or can do with a little tweaking and streamlining To make all agencies accountable the government should institutionalise the contributions and functioning of MAC members from the state level upwards For the state is really where the action is and where the crisis is the deepest In policing folklore there’s a reminiscing about times when the SHO was someone who knew who was fathering which unborn child Now the SHO is a political posting or a favourite of the police bosses The SHO is the most important link in the MAC chain from the district to Delhi We should strengthen this already existing institution instead of allowing it to wallow in patronage Even if the NCTC does come up everybody will ultimately have to turn to the SHO where an attack happens to ask why The NIA still has to as does anyone else The
