applied for membership And the US under intense criticism for staying out is now pledging cooperation Related News The Year of the Ram could be witnessing the first tremors of a tectonic shift in global power structures Despite US objections some of its closest allies — Australia the UK Germany France Italy and South Korea — have signed on to the new Chinese-backed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) Some 45 countries including Brazil and Russia have signed up and more may join soon Even Taiwan has applied for membership Japan is still holding back and the US under intense criticism for staying out is now pledging cooperation The BRICS Bank was the first shot across the bow to the established order Now the AIIB is an even bigger signal that global economic power is shifting — a majority of the G-20 is backing the bank As China prepares to take over the presidency of the G-20 there is clear evidence of its global ascendancy But these new financial institutions are just the set pieces in a bigger “New Silk Road” strategy which China is crystallising into the “One Belt One Road” policy This policy first announced by President Xi Jinping in 2013 in Kazakhstan was initially meant for greater cooperation between Central Asia and China’s western provinces But as Xi laid out at the 2015 Boao Forum since then it has evolved into a broader plan for China’s engagement with the world The belt links China to Europe and to trade and transport corridors across Central Asia and Russia The road includes maritime links through the Straits of Malacca to the Indian Ocean Middle East and eastern Africa China is signalling that while it has imported technology and capital for over 30 years since the Deng Xiaoping reforms it is now ready to turn around and export know-how and capital China’s “One Belt One Road” project focuses on trade infrastructure and telecommunications But it also talks about people-to-people connectivity cultural exchanges as well as learning from other countries’ development experiences It emphasises peaceful development and cooperation with existing organisations such as the Saarc Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and EU to assuage fears that China is emerging as a global hegemon The idea is not just to build infrastructure Trade facilitation is an important part of the “One Belt One Road” project Local currency trading will be encouraged and currency swap arrangements will be put in place China UnionPay cards are already issued and accepted in many countries — the latest is Turkey In addition to the $100 billion BRICS Bank and the $100 bn AIIB the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation Development Bank and Silk Road Fund ($40 bn) are also being set up These new institutions are partly a response to the slow pace of reform at the international financial institutions and partly a channel for China to utilise its vast forex reserves This is in contrast to the oil-rich countries which mostly rely on existing Western institutions to recycle their vast surpluses Badly needed reform of the US- and Europe-dominated IMF to give a greater say to emerging economies is stuck in the US Congress Ironically the US does not lose as much because of the proposed reform of the Bretton Woods institutions as European countries which have bolted to back the AIIB Given Asia’s vast infrastructure needs new financial institutions are badly required The existing Bretton Woods system no longer has the financial capacity or even up-to-date engineering know-how Moreover if Europe can have a European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and a European Investment Bank why can’t Asia have an Asian Development Bank and an AIIB working in tandem to meet its financing needs How China’s plans unfold will be determined by its dealings with individual countries In Myanmar environmental concerns as well as worries about China’s overweening presence led to the cancellation of the Myitsone dam project In Sri Lanka political change has put the brakes on several Chinese-backed projects including the Hambantota port India will judge China’s intentions based on how it solves the border dispute The Asean countries will judge China’s peaceful intentions by how it plays its hand in the South China Sea China has had some success but also several problems with its Africa strategy including significant anti-Chinese feelings in some countries Russia may be willing to cede influence to China in Central Asia — but only up to a point The direction China intends to go is becoming clearer as the scope of its ambitious strategy is unveiled India missed its opportunity at the end of the World War to get a bigger stake in the UN Security Council and the Bretton Woods system Today with its rising economic clout India must decide whether it wishes to participate intelligently and constructively inside this new tent or risk being left out and regret it later The Narendra Modi government moved quickly and correctly to enter the BRICS Bank as a founding member but this game just got much bigger India must increase its engagement or get left out once again Waiting for reforms at the Bretton Woods

football field stands at the heart of Tihar a village in west Delhi which lends the capital’s prison complex its name Occupying it are dozens of men cattle horses and haphazardly parked vehicles This is the Takiya Chamanwala Qabristan a graveyard that has been at the centre of court and police cases filed over the last 30 years by residents of Tihar against “encroachers” who they allege have illegally set up shops on the land The alleged encroachers however said their fathers and grandfathers set up businesses here because the graveyard was lying vacant when they moved into the village roughly five decades ago Asgar Ali owner of a dairy on the land said “My father set up this dairy 50 years ago and I expanded it once I joined him” Imam Ali a settler who moved to Tihar in the 1960s said “Tihar village used to be populated by Muslim Tyagis —Brahmins who adopted Muslim names to forego the jizya tax during Aurangzeb’s reign Gradually they converted to Islam and this qabristan came up to house the dead” After Partition most of the Tyagis fled to Pakistan though a few came back later Today only two Muslim Tyagi families remain in Tihar Migrants from neighbouring regions who repopulated the village did not really use the graveyard because there was one on the periphery Ali said Imam however disagreed: “My nephew died when he was just five days old and we buried him here 55 years ago” With the village population growing by the day residents factories prayer houses and shops began pushing in on the graveyard reducing the 21 bigha plot to 12 bighas of vacant space Nisar Ali member of the Muslim Samaj Sudharak Committee which was formed in the 1980s to oppose the encroachment of the graveyard said “We moved the courts in 1985 which directed police to seal the area But with no one to monitor the area encroachers began slinking in over the years” After residents moved a petition in the Delhi High Court the court in 2015 entrusted the Delhi government’s revenue department as the competent authority to look into the matter “Following court directives the encroachments on the graveyard were cleared As per SC guidelines the land use of graveyards cannot be changed But we have been receiving complaints that it has been encroached again We are considering another demolition drive soon” a revenue department official said Anjum a member of the Muslim Samaj Sudharak Committee said over 80 per cent of the total Waqf land in the capital is encroached upon “The village shares a small three-bigha graveyard near the Ajanta Cinema hall with eight other areas

Prithviraj slams onscreen misogyny Related News The first step in solving a problem is recognising there is one The film fraternity across India have refused to acknowledge the contribution of the film industry to society’s patriarch culture that invariably influences sex and physical violence against women And actor Prithviraj has taken a right step in the right direction by admitting that he did indulge in his own share of onscreen misogyny even as he vowed not to entertain scenes and dialogues in his films that disrespect women in future It takes a big man to admitted to one’s mistakes that he probably did to pander to the masses to become commercially successful But there is a significant size of filmmakers and actors in the south Indian film industry who have consistently shown a blatant disregard for women on the big screen irrespective of the fact that they impact how most of the men at least tens of hundreds of their fans perceive women in the society Malayalam superstar Mammootty last Sunday was at the protest meet in Kochi to condemn the assault on a popular south Indian actress But wind back the clock a year he was facing the wrath of the women’s commission for doing a film called Kasaba that was reeking of male chauvinism More from the world of Entertainment: A particular scene in the film had caused a widespread public outcry where Mammootty’s character grabs an IPS women officer by her waist-belt and warns her that he was capable of making her miss her menstrual cycle The dialogue made his fans burst into claps and whistles and the film was a box office hit But it was an assault on the senses of decent persons Read |Prithviraj pays tribute to assault survivor: Won’t celebrate misogyny in my movies It was not the first time that the three-time National Award winning actor has spread the ideology of male sex being way superior to female sex and the view that it was a man’s birthright to control women One may argue that an actor’s onscreen actions may not reflect his real-life views Well that is called hypocrisy The actors cannot go on promoting the wrong ideas about masculinity in their films and say otherwise at press meets Not long ago actor Dileep was ridiculed for blatantly advertising a misguided belief during his marriage to actor Kavya Madhavan He said that he did not marry Kavya because he wanted to it was because she was made a scapegoat by the media by linking her to him There it shows the superiority mindset of a man who thinks a woman can’t survive without his help In India about 99 percent of the films are about hero worshiping that puts women several stations below the leading men A women-centric film rarely draws a large group of audience to the theatres While it is not fair to blame film industry entirely it is high time that the heroes who are worshipped as demi gods accept the fact that they make a significant contribution to the thriving rape culture and growing violence against women in the country

under his breath that his party which has been ruling Gujarat for the last 20 years is on a sticky wicket When you do find one that too in Vadnagar Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s hometown it is indicative of the discontent in parts of the state where the BJP is aiming at returning to power for a fifth consecutive term Dikshit Patel a long time BJP worker is worried that the simmering anger of the Patidar community upset over the violence in 2015 during the agitation for reservation could brim over on election day spelling trouble for the party Representational image PTI He is not the only one viewing the 14 December election with foreboding The mood in the BJP camp in Mehsana district which straddles seven constituencies is tense Mehsana and Vadnagar fall in Mehsana district but while Vadnagar is under the Unjha constituency Mehsana city (known as Mahesana in the list of the state election office) is a separate constituency BJP workers are apprehensive that the Patidar rage could severely dent the party’s prospects It all began in Mehsana the epicentre of the Patidar agitation led by Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) chief Hardik Patel two years ago they recall The agitation for reservation took a violent turn people were killed Patidar leaders were jailed and the state was deaf to their demand for quota for the community Today the fire may have been doused but the embers still glow "More than Hardik as an individual it is the issue of Patidar reservation that has struck a chord with the Patels especially the youth Patels are the backbone of the BJP in Gujarat We made the party what it is today so it is natural that if they desert our camp the impact will be deep" says Dikshit Most BJP functionaries in the area dominated by Patidars belong to this community But be it Dikshit in Vadnagar or Falgun Patel in Mehsana city a fairly developed urban settlement the anxiety is palpable The party is trying to contain the potential damage in Unjha by playing up the fact that Narayanbhai Patel the local MLA seeking a sixth-straight term heads the Umiya Dham Temple revered by the Patel community He is up against the Congress’s Ashaben Patel The BJP has fielded Deputy Chief Minister Nitinbhai Patel against Jivabhai Patel of the Congress in Mahesana Falgun Patel who has been a corporator of the BJP in the local Mehsana municipality also concedes that the contest is extremely tight because of the anger in the Patel community which he says "cannot be bought" He rattles off a set of figures to prove his point "There are around 257 lakh voters in the Mahesana seat out of which about 52000 are Patidars Among the Patidars even considering the best possible scenario not more than 18000 shall vote for us And Patels have been our strength" Falgun says He adds that the party is attempting to offset the Patel desertion by focusing more on OBC communities such as Thakores (around 40000) Prajapatis (26000 approx) and the Chaudharys (17000 approx) "Thakore votes are usually reserved for the Congress But this time we are hoping the OBCs will tilt towards the BJP considering the Congress’s emphasis on wooing the Patidars by promising them reservation The OBCs understand they stand to lose if the quotas materialise" he explains Not everyone is downcast though JK Bharot 73 who runs a stationery shop off the Mehsana-Palanpur highway is as optimistic as ever "Like I was when AK Patel was elected in 1984 The Modi magic will work again" he says stressing repeatedly that the prime minister "is a great man" AK Patel was the first BJP leader elected to the Lok Sabha from the Mehsana parliamentary constituency He held the seat till 1998 before Aatmaram Patel of the Congress took over and later in 2004 Jivabhai Patel Vitthal Bhai Choudhary
