planning solutionsthey are gone They are never held accountablefor their performance In contrastthe average stay of a utility head in an important US or European utility is around eight years They are selected on the basis of their ability to run a major utilityand directly accountable for the performance of the utilities Unless Indian megacities also hire professional utility managerstheir water-related problems will only get worse Current water losses from major urban centres run from 35 to 60 per cent This means some one-third to two-thirds of treated water never reaches the intended consumers Yeta city like Phnom Penh has reduced its water losses from nearly 80 per cent in 1993 to 5 per cent in 2011 through professional management The current director general of Phnom Penhs water supply authority had spent some 18 years on the job During his tenurethe city successfully provided clean water that could be drunk straight from the tap Water is available 24 hours a day for both rich and poor households Every household pays for clean water Phnom Penhs is a public water utility where consumers pay for operationmaintenance and investment costs It does not receive any funds from the city It provides excellent service and has been consistently profitable over the past decade In contrasteach household in a city like Delhi has been forced to become a mini-utility When water comes for a few hours a dayeach household stores it in underground tanksand then pumps it to an overhead tank Each household has its own treatment system provided by the private sector Ten years agopeople used simple carbon filtersnow they are being forced to use membranes and reverse osmosis to treat water because of the steady deterioration of water quality Even when households receive water free from a citythey pay for construction of underground and overhead tankscleaning of both the tanks every two monthselectricity costs for pumping up water several times each dayand operation and maintenance of water treatment systems from a private sector company Our analyses for Kolkata show that if the corporation provided water service efficientlyand if all households paid for these services fairlythey would save at least 35 per cent of what they are paying now Unfortunatelyall households in cities like DelhiKolkataMumbai or Chennai are now paying first-rate costs for third-grade water delivery services Cities have been offering many excuses for this incompetencebut there is no persuasive technicaleconomic or social reason why Indian cities cannot have 24-hour drinkable water services The fact that not a single Indian city has such a service is an indictment on the terrible status of urban water management Asit K Biswas is the founder of the Third World Centre for Water

NewsWritten by Prem Shankar Jha | Published: June 2 2015 12:18 am Cutting interest rates is a political imperative for the BJP if it is to deliver the growth it promised Related News Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first year in office has evoked mixed reactions While there is a consensus that he has done well in foreign policy there is a growing feeling that he has not lived up to his promises at home Nowhere is the disappointment more palpable than in his failure so far to revive the economy Manmohan Singh’s government had allowed growth to drop sharply from more than 8 per cent a year to 55 per cent (2004-5 series) industrial growth to fall from a nine-month peak of 145 per cent in 2009-10 to below 1 per cent and employment to virtually stop growing Every year therefore around six million young people who would have found jobs easily had growth not faltered found themselves facing an uncertain and impoverished future The collapse began in 2011 the same year that China’s fiscal stimulus ended and its economy too began to slow down But while a large part of China’s slowdown occurred because deepening recession in the industrialised countries curtailed the growth of its exports in India the slowdown was largely self-inflicted for it arose out of an attempt by the RBI to control a cost-push inflation by curbing demand From 7-8 per cent in 2006 average borrowing rates climbed to 13 to 14 per cent at the beginning of 2014 The result was stagflation The construction industry India’s main job generator went into a coma and the consumer durables industry was almost wiped out When inflation did not come down even after three years of high interest rates but jobs became more scarce people lost faith in the Congress and switched allegiance to the BJP Modi rode to power on a promise to restore growth rapidly and it is not that he has not tried In the past year the government has enacted a slew of reforms in the product and factor markets that will improve the climate for investment and smooth the future growth of the economy But these reforms have done nothing to remove the two main roadblocks that have stalled growth The first is the non-availability of land The second is an acute shortage of investment The paucity of land has arisen from the refusal by every government of the last 60 years to admit that in a democracy where landowners have the right to move the courts people must be persuaded not forced to part with it Modi’s government has proved no more enlightened than its predecessors The shortage of capital to finish stalled projects and finance new ones arises not from a dearth of savings but from investors’ unwillingness to invest in India at these high interest rates Infrastructure projects have been the worst hit because a 12 per cent interest rate adds 40 per cent to a five-year project 70 per cent to an eight-year project and more than 100 per cent to a 12-year project such as a hydroelectric power complex This virtually guarantees their insolvency even before they go on line The high borrowing cost is a direct consequence of the RBI’s obsession with controlling inflation by raising interest rates This policy dates back to 2007 but has been turned into a religion by current governor Raghuram Rajan who has turned a deaf ear to every entreaty to lower interest rates claiming that he is still not convinced that inflation is really over To say that this has been suicidal would be an understatement for it has made Indian private companies forsake India to invest abroad and state-owned enterprises park their money in banks where they earn a safe 7 to 8 per cent a year Since 2007 the former have invested well over $60 billion in ventures abroad and next to nothing in India As for the latter on April 1 2014 they were sitting on $110 billion (Rs 689000 crore) of idle reserves at home Had the bulk of these reserves been used as promoters’ equity in new projects it would have triggered up to $600 billion of investment by now and our infrastructure famine might have been history What India needs is an interest rate policy geared towards promoting growth not fighting inflation and a commitment to fight demand inflation should it recur by reducing government spending Ideally borrowing rates should be brought down not by 05 or even 1 per cent but by 5 per cent over the next year till they are at most 1-2 per cent above the rate of inflation This is no longer just an economic imperative but a political one for the BJP’s honeymoon period is coming to an end Jha is a senior journalist and author For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsThe voting percentage in Tamil Nadu has crossed 40 as I write this and no matter whether the DMK or the AIADMK wins the state will return to the now sickeningly familiar phenomenon of welfarism run riot on a scale unimaginable anywhere in the world at any point in history A respected scholar and academic I know summarised this sort of welfarism thus: “Tamil Nadu’s Dravidian politics has created at least two generations of youth unfit for employment in any area of human activity” This harsh assessment does have more than a grain of truth to it Representational image AFP And this unique brand of welfarism would be impossible to implement over decades but for the separatist ideology that underpins it: Dravidianism Church power in Tamil Nadu politics The journey of the Dravidian ideology is a journey of progressive descent as we shall see In general what began as linguistic identity-separateness morphed into racial separateness and eventually today into Christian religious separateness The scholar Aravindan Neelakandansums this up well: "The Church cutting across denominations has constantly tried to create and propagate a false history that combines Dravidian racism with evangelical Christianity In this narrative Abraham was a Dravidian StThomas brought this Dravidian monotheism back to Tamil Nadu which was then besieged by Brahmins… Thirukural was the result of the teachings of StThomas Saivism and Vaishnavism were branches of Christianity brought by StThomas Cunning Brahmins corrupted them into present Hinduism" Both the 2011 and 2016 elections are good indicators to assess the extent of influence the Church wields in Tamil Nadu In 2011 Jayalalithaa’s pre-poll carrot to the Christians included state-funded pilgrimages to Bethlehem according to Electionnowtv This time Karunanidhi has outdone her On 3 May he announced that his party would accede to the demands made by the Tamil Nadu Bishops’ Council according to The Times Of India The demands 1 To include Dalit Christians in the Scheduled Castes classification 2 To pass a Government order to include people who converted into Christianity from MBC communities in their respective castes 3 To revoke property tax levied on minority institutions 4 An immediate ban on alcohol a la Kerala As is the practice the media intelligentsia and our commentariat instead of being alarmed simply glossed over this shameful concession to such brazen communal demands The TN Bishops’ Council promptly announced their support to the DMK-Congress combine and issued orders to each parish to instruct the faithful to vote for this combine because this combine would “safeguard secular and democratic values" Of course we wonder on what moral or other grounds the Church bodies speak about secularism when they advise the faithful to vote as Christians The DMK’s meek surrender could also be interpreted as atonement for its wooing of the Hindu vote The Church didn’t take kindly to—for example—MK Stalin’s overtures in say Kumbakonam in October 2015 According to The Hindu he declared: "There is a well-planned campaign to project that the DMK is anti-Hindu But the family members of party leaders and cadre have faith in god Even my wife is visiting all temples across the State and I never once asked her not to go" In any case the Bishops’ Council has now brought the DMK to its knees This startling power of the Church is truly the victory of the missionary Bishop Robert Caldwell The father of Dravidianism Gloating about his successes in Bengal Macaulay wrote thus to his father in 1836: "Our English schools are flourishing wonderfully… The effect of this education on the Hindoos is prodigious No Hindoo who has received an English education ever remains sincerely attached to his religion… It is my firm belief that if our plans of education are followed up there will not be a single idolater among the respectable classes in Bengal thirty years hence…" Twenty years later Bishop Robert Caldwell would publish his A Comparative Grammar of Dravidian or South-Indian family of Languages in which he held: "The [Tamil] language being probably the earliest cultivated on the Dravidian idioms the most copious and that which contains the largest portion and the richest variety of indubitably ancient forms…" It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to claim that this among other glowing lines about the language in his book on Tamil grammar formed the bedrock of Tamil linguistic separatism and gave the much-needed manure for the racist theories of Dravidian separatism to fully flower and to eventually capture political power In the realm of Dravidian ideology Robert Caldwell is a demi-god who has numerous busts and statues to his credit across Tamil Nadu A postage stamp too was issued in his honour by the Indian government in 2010 In short thou shalt not subject Caldwell to critical scrutiny in Tamil Nadu However Caldwell’s same book also contained these lines: "We seem to be justified in drawing the conclusion that the Dravidian languages have remained almost unaltered for the last two thousand years but probably also that the principal dialects that now prevail had a separate existence at the commencement of the Christian era… [Emphasis added]" And he further traces the beginnings of Tamil literature to not earlier than the 10th Century Now this posed an enormous problem for the Dravidian champions back then because among other factors the ideology rests on the antiquity of the Tamil language For instance the Dravidian ideological scholar MS Purnalingam Pillai dates the Third Sangam to a period between 1750 BCE and 100 CE while M Srinivasa Aiyangar places it between 5th Century BCE and 6th Century CE Still others date it variously from the 2nd Century BCE and the 1st Century CE The art of making things disappear Dr BGL Swamy who was professor of Botany (and later principal) in Madras Presidency College from 1953 till 1978 was a scholar of the highest order in numerous fields including Tamil linguistics grammar literature history and culture More importantly he was an eyewitness to the era of the ascent of Dravidian ideological and political supremacy His Kannada essay Mangamaaya Kale (The Art of Making Things Disappear) narrates what happened when the latter portion of Caldwell’s “justified conclusion” was unearthed The following passage is my (translated) paraphrase of the original "Caldwell’s book was first published in 1856 Its second edition saw light in 1857 It contained an elaborate preface (154 pages) in a book totalling 608 pages In 1936 the Madras University published an abridged version of this book in which the preface was chopped off in several places The Dravidianists are smart If someone shows them evidence that goes against their current train of opinion they ensure that such evidence vanishes completely They have ensured that the first and second editions of Caldwell’s book have similarly vanished in order to protect the current and future generations of innocent Tamils from being corrupted After the abridged editions were published all copies of Caldwell’s original have disappeared from our libraries In the rare case that someone actually finds a copy of the original pages of the (original) preface in that copy have disappeared In some libraries the “unnecessary” pages of the said preface have been blackened with ink I ordered a copy of the microfilm of Caldwell’s [first and second] editions from the British Museum library and showed the relevant portions to some Dravidian scholars They claimed I had doctored the pages Neither did I leave it at that I wrote to the Museum officials and asked them to post the enlarged photos of the relevant pages directly to these scholars Their response: ‘You’re very tough You have managed to fool even the officials of the Museum’ " There’s an even deeper reason why Caldwell’s observations propelled latter-day Dravidian champions into such panic P Sundaram Pillai in his 1897 book The Basic Element in Hindu Civilization claims that from a cultural standpoint Tamil was “self-born” and never borrowed nor was influenced by other cultures and languages It was most definitely not influenced either by the Sanskrit language or its art or culture Everything in Tamil Nadu that people today claim as being influenced by Sanskrit is an ignorant claim Vedanta and Aryan culture are actually of Tamil or Dravidian origin later appropriated by the Aryans Equally in 1904 V Kanakasabhai wrote in his The Tamils Eighteen Hundred Years Ago that he had a “revelation” that the most ancient works in Tamil must have been composed more than 2000 years ago but failed to mention the evidence or the source of his revelation The commonality underscoring hosts of such ideologically motivated scholars is the foundation provided by Robert Caldwell Real-life consequences of Dravidianism aIndeed the Justice Party formed in 1917 accepted this foundation and built its superstructure upon it The Dravidian identity defined as all those people who were non-Brahmins was another key element that emerged from the said foundation Key Dravidian luminaries that propagated hostility against Brahmins included MS Purnalingam Pillai N Subba Rao Swami Vedachalam (who later Tamilised his name as Maraimalai Adigal) and others As the ideology gained momentum achieved mass following and eventually attained political power almost every aspect of the state was “pure” Tamilised (or Dravidised if you will) Here is a small sample of the kind of topics for which PhDs were awarded at the university level: Boys in the Sangam Age Girls in the Sangam Age Children in the Sangam Age Infants in the Sangam Age If the Tamil language department published a thesis titled Tamils in the Sangam Age the history department’s counterpart thesis would be titled The Sangam Age: Tamils Twenty-twoPhDs were awarded for the same topic all of them reaching the same conclusion of fixing the date for Silappadikaram at the 2nd Century CE Dr BGL Swamy narrates how a university official once approached him with a request to write an essay on “Tamil” plant life This was to form part of the government’s 10-volume series depicting the “authentic” account of Tamil history The first volume published in 1975 is entitled Tamizh Nadu Varalaru In response to Swamy’s claim that there’s no such thing as a “Telugu plant life” “Kannada plant life” and “Tamil plant life” the official replied “So you mean to say there’s no unique Tamil plant life like there’s a unique independent Tamil identity” One can find hundreds of such real life instances in Dr Swamy’s body of work (Rajiv Malhotra and Aravindan Neelakandan’s Breaking India is also a seminal work that sheds detailed light on this phenomenon) that illustrate the causes and consequences of an identity-centric ideology that captures political power Church as the biggest beneficiary of Dravidianism Eightypercent of Tamil Nadu’s population is under the reservation umbrella reports Rediffcom This fact is the direct outcome of the Dravidian ideology This umbrella will only expand vide the current demand from the TN Bishops’ Council Indeed the biggest beneficiary of the Dravidian discourse has been the Church Over the years it has shrewdly used the Aryan versus Dravidian the Tamil versus non-Tamil the Brahmin versus the non-Brahmin strands to steadily gain converts According to the 2011 Census Christians form 4685 percent of the population in Kanyakumari the highest in the state Vast tracts of coastal Tamil Nadu are now Christian Tamil Nadu also receives massive amounts of foreign funding via FCRA for Christian evangelical activity as Prof R Vaidyanathan shows in a painstaking study published on IBTLin The Church’s alarming power over Tamil Nadu politics—and in some cases national politics—can also be observed in its destructive role in fuelling the Kudankulam protests in early 2012 by using its vast and impenetrable global networks and front-NGOs This Firstpost piece explores the frightening phenomenon very well Robert Caldwell would have been a happy man had he been alive today It’s nobody’s argument that today elections in Tamil Nadu are fought ostensibly on the plank of Dravidianism: it’s a free-for-all tussle in the game of competitive freebies and caste divisions Needless the ultimate loser is always the voter Yet the forces that Dravidianism has unleashed over so many decades have made it impossible for any candidate to appeal to the electorate to move away from the ideology which has inflicted much harm but given so little good in return Whatever the social or other injustices suffered by sections of the Tamil society in the past embracing Dravidianism has proven to be like using an axe to get rid of the boil on your palm Equally the quest for an illusory “pure”

Committee opens a week of high-level meetings on Sunday preparing to rubber-stamp the award of the 2024 and 2028 Olympics as the movement battles a fresh wave of corruption revelations For the first time since the awarding of the 1984 Olympics the usual frenzy of last-minute lobbying and politicking by rival bid cities and heads of state will be strikingly absent in Lima In a historic move the IOC has brokered an agreement that will see Paris handed the 2024 Games with Los Angeles awarded 2028 IOC members are set to greenlight the deal at a meeting on Wednesday following 25-minute presentations by Paris and Los Angeles the last two cities left in the initial race for the 2024 Summer Olympics The formal ratification of the 2024-2028 deal will mark the end of a mostly good-natured bidding campaign notable for the number of cities who withdrew from the race citing waning public support and concerns over budget Hamburg Rome Budapest and Boston all fell by the wayside during the competition reflecting the political difficulties in persuading voters that staging the Olympics is worth the multi-billion-dollar price tag Too many losers IOC President Thomas Bach first signalled publicly that the double-award of an Olympics could be on the agenda in December last year lamenting that the bidding process produced “too many losers” As the bidding battle for 2024 unfolded and as the field thinned to leave Los Angeles and Paris as the last bids standing the IOC’s determination to lock in two high-quality cities for the next two summer games became apparent Los Angeles and Paris who have slick bids which emphasise a high-level of venue readiness both wowed the IOC’s Evaluation Commission during back-to-back visits in May In July the IOC announced it would award the staging rights for the 2024 and 2028 Olympics at the same meeting in Lima With Los Angeles offered financial sweeteners to step aside for Paris in 2024 the fait accompli that will be inked this week was confirmed on July 31 Bach who has saluted the deal as a “win-win-win” for the two cities and the Olympic movement could not hide his delight after arriving in Lima on Thursday for what should be a drama-free meeting Two great cities “It’s a very special it can be a historic decision” Bach said “There are two great cities Allocating the Olympic Games is not about quantity it’s about quality It’s finding the best possible host for the best athletes of the world” Paris 2024 bid chief Tony Estanguet said he viewed this week’s meeting in Lima as cause for celebration “It’s been a great campaign great project a great team so we’re here to conclude this campaign and to celebrate with LA because we are not competitors we are partners now and we will work together” Estanguet told AFP “It’s unique for the IOC it’s unique for Paris and it’s unique for LA so let’s do it” The cloud hovering over what should be a triumphant week for Bach however comes in the form of more corruption allegations which erupted last week and appeared to take the IOC by surprise Investigators in Brazil swooped on the country’s Olympics chief Carlos Nuzman who stands accused of plotting to bribe IOC members into awarding Rio de Janeiro the 2016 Games at a 2009 vote in Copenhagen Former IOC member Nuzman was taken in for questioning with his passport confiscated and a search of his house
