blamed for the poor implementation of projects and for getting involved in Nepal’s internal politics On Nepal Modi has much to be satisfied about But the challenges begin now Prime Minister Narendra Modi made every effort to be seen as Nepal’s best friend — a commoner a pilgrim the guardian of a Nepali in need and less of a prime minister of a big country By the time he left Nepal he had won the hearts and minds of the Nepalese imprinting deeply the idea that he alone has the will and ability to transform Nepal into a prosperous country His repeated emphasis on India’s respect for Nepal’s sovereignty and the message that missed opportunities of the past and failed promises should not act as speed-breakers in “our future journey to prosperity together” were perhaps aimed at looking ahead at the future not harping on the past Modi knew that all these personalities he projected would consolidate his image and goodwill in a country where India is perceived as a neighbour with a big gap between promise and delivery — and of late a neighbour that involves itself more in Nepal’s internal politics and pursues a policy of “divide and rule” Modi brought along with him Jeet Bahadur Saru Magar — a Nepali boy that he had a chance meeting with in Ahmedabad about 16 years ago and adopted — ostensibly to “reunite” him with his family that was discovered two years ago at Modi’s initiative Jeet had come to Nepal two years ago soon after the family was discovered and was in constant touch with them But Modi’s decision to bring Jeet along get his entire family to Kathmandu pose with them for a photo-op and give them gifts generated such publicity that this affair appears to have paid him the biggest dividend of his Nepal visit “Years ago I came here as a pilgrim And anyone who comes to Nepal once will always belong here [sic]” he said in Nepali before he began his extempore speech in the parliament By projecting the image of a benevolent guardian and a devotee of Shiva — from Somnath to Pashupatinath via Vishwanath — he could easily establish a bond with a predominantly Hindu Nepal a country with a potential for religious tourism Jawaharlal Nehru disapproved of then President Rajendra Prasad’s wish to go to the renovation ceremony of the Somnath temple in the early 1950s on the ground that it would set a wrong precedent in a secular country But almost 60 years later Nehru’s successor took pride in offering special worship at the Pashupatinath temple and spending an hour there as a devotee something none of India’s prime ministers before Modi had done That the new Indian prime minister is a commoner and “someone like us” was the general feeling in Nepal Was it all only part of diplomacy Nobody in Nepal seems to believe that at least for now But then Modi the prime minister was much at ease in delivering the messages he wanted to — that Nepali politicians must rise above partisan politics in making the constitution While he sent across the message that India would be happy if Nepal wrote a federal republican constitution he also said “that must bring poor and rich rural and urban hill mountain and Terai together” That was a clear disapproval of the identity-implying caste- and ethnicity-based federalism — a common agenda of the Maoists and Madhesi parties — something India had lent its support to earlier His emphasis was more on linking the country and its people with its diverse geography culture and socioeconomic strata than wedging a divide on caste and ethnic lines He also maintained his silence on whether India wishes Nepal to be a secular or a Hindu nation A quiet warning and praise for Maoists for switching to “Buddha from Yuddha” — from war to peace — also showed that Modi was cautiously optimistic about their contribution to the constitution-writing “The entire world is looking at you Your success will discourage many who believe weapons can bring about change” — the hidden message was more obvious The consequences of Nepal which has already bungled one chance not having a constitution on time would be enormous After all an orderly society guided by a constitution alone will provide the stability that is the pre-requisite for business and investment — Modi’s clear focus The 5600 MW Pancheshwar project which remained stalled for 18 years after the agreement will see its work start within a year He assured the Nepali side that India will not want Nepal’s electricity or power for free: “We will buy it and that alone will change the face of Nepal… We will provide power to you now but 10 years hence you will remove our darkness” he said hinting India will move fast on the implementation of projects now Modi returns to New Delhi with much to be satisfied about But the challenges begin now as the promises enter the delivery phase More than that the hope that Modi has generated will have to confront the image of the Indian government’s bureaucracy and intelligence largely blamed for the poor implementation of past projects and for getting involved in Nepal’s internal politics The bureaucracy will not refute the allegation But it cannot be wished away so easily The challenge lies in getting it to perform as per decisions reached at the political level on both sides Modi’s probation in Nepal begins now [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App

Maharashtra The two cadaver donations helped six others who were in urgent need for kidneys and a liver The two heart transplants were coordinated in a gap of four hours to reach Fortis Hospital in Mulund In the first case a 22-year-old housewife suffered a fall leading to brain death in Ruby Hall Hospital Pune Her family agreed to donate her heart liver both kidneys and lungs According to Zonal Transplant Coordination Center (ZTCC) the lung was flown to Global Hospital Chennai for a wait-listed patient while the heart was transported in 49 minutes to Mumbai for a 24-year-old college student

snobbish schools and colleges who are still prejudiced about caste class religion sex and colour Related News Since 1947 Indians have not spoken out so strongly and clearly for a completely new brand of people running government Mercifully there are no ministers educated abroad Thankfully none of them has been brainwashed at Harvard Stanford Cambridge the World Bank or the IMF subtly forcing expensive Western solutions on typically Indian problems at the cost of the poor Look what the high-powered foreign-returned degree-wallahs have reduced this country to They wasted opportunities to show the inner strength of what is essentially Indian because they never really knew their own people living in Bharat In the eyes of the world we have lost our self-respect dignity and identity All the ministers now have gone through average government schools Some have never been to college Many have experienced poverty exploitation injustice and discrimination at some point of time in their lives It is truly the first barefoot government ever to be voted into power in independent India Where else in the world would you have a one-time tea-seller on a railway station becoming prime minister shaping the destiny of more than one billion people The first example the Modi government must set is by drastically reducing the perks and privileges of MPs Free power food housing travel to those whose personal assets run into crores and a Rs 2 crore annual fund for development (read patronage) for over 500 MPs is costing the exchequer nearly Rs 2000 crore Only the prime minister will be able to make it happen and at the same time stifle any dissent from BJP MPs The time is now No other government in the world has a Class 12-pass woman minister speaking as an equal to almost 120 heavily qualified on paper vice chancellors (90 per cent male) Today as we judge them the VCs are all too intellectually and morally fatigued There is something dreadfully wrong with an education system that produces graduates from even private expensive snobbish schools and colleges who are still prejudiced about caste class religion sex and colour These “graduates” who roam the streets of small towns and cities by the thousands call themselves “educated” practice the worst forms of cruelty slavery and crimes against humanity against society and in their own families Indeed some of them rose to the level of their incompetence by becoming ministers in previous governments reinforcing the status quo wasting vast public resources by implementing silly Western ideas listening to foreign-returned “experts” and making a hopeless mess of this country The tragedy is that they cannot see the colossal damage they have done to the very fabric of this country Now they will call me a “namak haram” because I went to Doon School and St Stephen’s College and I am trashing my own kind They deserve it Their snobbish elitist education has made them arrogant inaccessible insensitive and devoid of any humanity or humility Just because they received a Western education they think they know their country Superficially they may know urban India but they are clueless about rural Bharat Alvin Toffler in his book Future Shock said “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be someone who cannot read or write It will be someone who is not prepared to learn unlearn and relearn” In the 40 years that I have lived and worked with the rural poor in Rajasthan what have I learnt that I did not manage to make my own kind “unlearn and relearn” It was not for want of trying What did the prime minister the deputy chairman of the Planning Commission and finance minister of the decimated UPA government have in common They were all “educated” abroad They were all for subsidising the rich and cutting subsidies for the poor They had no idea about real poverty and hunger and how the rural poor survived expecting the whole country to be gullible enough to believe that the rural poor today could survive on Rs 27 per day Out of sheer ignorance of rural realities and showing extremely poor political judgement the three of them almost managed to strangle the MGNREGA The MGNREGA prevented migration by the millions into cities The bungling and corruption by village officials notwithstanding the rural poor now have more money to spend on food clothing housing and essentials So of course prices will go up The prime minister is evidently serious about improving the quality of life of the rural poor as he eloquently stated in his speech on Independence Day So what are the out of the box solutions that need to be considered urgently The MGNREGA should stay with “Modi-fications” Pay minimum wages which the Congress’s three armchair foreign-returned economists so stubbornly and unethically refused to do in spite of a high court order Make it more transparent and accountable take action against corrupt officials exposed in social audits to set an example Pass the public grievance bill in Parliament as soon as possible Call a meeting of respected grassroot practitioners across political ideologies who know the MGNREGA from the village level and follow up on their recommendations The focus has to be on innovative job creation in the rural areas Provide 100 days of employment at minimum wages to construct low-cost toilets for girls and rooftop rainwater harvesting tanks for drinking water tree plantations and flush toilets in rural schools by the thousands Construct rural godowns to store food grains instead of letting nearly 5 million tonnes of grain just rot in the open Start community colleges on Gandhian lines instead of sending delegations of “experts” on education to study the American model There are enough indigenous examples to replicate and scale up Civil society is riddled with defeated politicians and retired bureaucrats who having lost their power influence and privileges have started NGOs While they were in power they did not lift a finger to help them When these has-beens have nothing better to do they start NGOs They give genuine small civil society organisations a bad name Maybe it is time to revive the debate of the 1980s on the need for a code of conduct for NGOs The code would expect them to have a simple lifestyle take a living wage instead of a market wage and observe the laws of the country If we are fighting against crony capitalism we should also fight against cronyism in NGOs When the Council for Advancement of People’s Action and Rural Technology (CAPART) was closed down and replaced by a Bharat Rural Livelihood Foundation (BRLF) in September 2013 it was done in complete secrecy The BRLF was never widely publicised and civil society was never invited to contribute to its formation It is designed to benefit a handful of select organisations — cronyism of the worst kind It was so much in contrast to the open debate that galvanised the voluntary sector over the code of conduct and which preceded the merger of the People’s Action for Development India (PADI) and the Council for Advancement of Rural Technology (CART) to form CAPART in 1986 What needs to be done Replace the national advisory council (NAC) with a voluntary action commission (VAC) The mandate of the VAC should be to identify the thousands of genuine grassroots groups who have an FCRA registration and submit their report to the home ministry It is not the job of the home ministry to judge the incredible work of community-based organisations A lot of effort has gone into the formulation of the BRLF
