Anybody who has endured a Test match or a One Day match in India; tried to buy a World Cup ticket online; tolerated the stinking urinals; sat on boiling hot seats; survived the jostling by police,Heroics not needed?July 18)I put forward three simple premises Oneif important decisions are to be taken as part of a regular processthen it is necessary that decision-makers constantly mitigate risks in routine and in advance by favourably managing the risk factors likely to contribute to wrong decision-making or the perception thereof Twotodaythe role of evidence-based decision-making intermediated by credible technical/ techno-economic opinion is lowand that leaves decision-makers with less space to manoeuvre in sticky situations And threeunfortunatelythe overall environment itself is highly risk-averse So we need to address stakeholder concernsconsciously make efforts to mitigate risks and also better manage residual risk Pointing out thatactuallysolutions based on risk analysis are highly sector-specificrequiring each sector to work its own way throughI had however ventured to suggest a few generic solutions These include: encouraging independent or autonomous advisory bodiestechno-economic think-tanks and regulatory bodies to position themselves to provide considered and attributable consultancies to parliamentary committees and ministriesand creating similar internal units in internal regulatory organisations for better evidence-based policy analysis; stronger emphasis on HRincluding sufficiency of tenures and succession-planningpromotion of specialisation and multi-disciplinary expertise and developing policymaking skills in technocrats; more public debate by involving serving and retired decision-makers and senior technocrats; and a rolling communication strategy at enterprise (ministry) level Howevermuch of it will not work unless there is sector-specific process-reform to remove the impediments preventing decision-makers from taking decisions within a cleartransparentnon-arbitrary and evidence-based frameworkin an environment of reasonable accountability Process reform involves mainly those with the domain knowledge (serving and retired senior practitioners and decision-makers) and those at the receiving end of the process (such as industry associations) They mustwith the facilitation of those with expertise in process managementidentify and address the issues in the legislative and rules framework which need to be attendedincluding arbitrariness and undue discretion They must oversee the putting into place or restructuring of regulatory institutionstechno-economic bodiesetcto provide better inputs into policymaking and conceptualise the modern MIS architecture needed for better evidence-based decision-makingkeeping in view best practices There must be a review of the technical HR (in-house as well as outsourced) for role-determinationlatest qualifications and expertiseand creation of multidisciplinary expertise and organisational deployment Sector-wide processes of developing and updating technical and procedural manuals and standards in line with international practices must be started The broad picture in many sectors is currently one where old established and reputed institutions created in the 1950s and 1960sif not earlieras repositories of knowledge and centres of excellence are falling into decay; premier institutions are no longer throwing up enough scientists and technocrats of high repute and international standingwho can make their voice heard in policy formulation; senior policymakers often do not have the depth of experience because of inadequate attention to specialisation and career-planninggiven the uncertainties in managing such a diverse HR pool in an all-India context An equally bleak picture presents itself in the area of information management for evidence-based decisions There is no comprehensive sectoral information architecture Data and information is supply- rather than demand-or ratherneed-driven There is very little vertical online collaboration between the Central government and state government systems Horizontal online collaboration between Central databases is also too inadequate and sporadic to add value to evidence-based decision-making It is not possible to suggest specific initiatives or go into greater detail without a sectoral context but it is possible to identify a few cross-sectoral initiatives Onea Central initiative for institutional renewal of old established and reputed premier institutions engaged in pioneering work at sectoral level Twothe recent thrust given by the National Statistical Commission to the concept of core statistics based on demand (in factit should be need) be taken up as a national missionwith more emphasis on building up capacity in states to collectshare and better utilise the data Threea Central initiativein collaboration with statesand educational and research institutions to jointly create large databasesincluding spatial databasesfor multiple purposes The ongoing mechanism of National Natural Resource Management System (NNRMS) located in the Planning Commission could be professionalised and greatly expanded for the purpose Foura detailed review of the concept of organised services in order to develop a comprehensive framework for HR management at a sectoral level particularly for technical services that need to grow and provide inputs for policymaking Fiveencouraging and facilitating and finally mandating sectoral ministries to create a mechanism to develop domain-specific legal expertise on outsourced basis (with the aim of systematically enhancing the pool of freely accessible domain-specific legal expertise in the long run) Sixwherever applicabledevelop a sector-specific environmental and social management framework within which policies and programmes can be developed and managed in a more secure spacewith an internal regulator to enforce itif necessary And finallyby ensuring that each ministry has a risk management framework that constantly reviews and assesses policiesprogrammes and procedures for key risks through a confidential annual risk management report prepared under the guidance of the ministrys financial adviser so as to devise and implement internal controls to manage residual risks The writer

and Aahana Kumra presented by Ekta Kapoor’s Alt Entertainment surely does remind us of the times when movies did not just entertain but made you think feel and at times even explore the workings of the world around you The question however is if this movie managed to show how women feel in the men’s world After being called ‘lady-oriented’ the film has only managed to draw attention for being bold In the theater as darkness envelops the audience only laughter prevails Shireen trying to get her husband to use a condom is funny but does the audience understand the underlying meaning Rihana Abibi steals to feel accepted by her peers and she thinks she finds someone who understands her After all he is a fan of Led Zeppelin too but her peers undermine her so easily and she is pushed yet again into the chores that women are supposed to do To sew and later get married when the right alliance comes along Sewing is acceptable but singing Not so much Does the audience understand the girl’s inhibitions As Usha a fifty-something women explores her sexuality and realises that she still in fact has sexual drive is shamed for thinking such ‘shameful’ thoughts does the audience really understand that it is not just about sex but about the society stifling a basic human urge in the name of being ‘respectable’ in the society Leela’s mother is a model for art students She poses in the nude to earn money and her only expectation from her daughter is for her to married and live in a proper house Leela however has other ideas She wants to start a business with her boyfriend Arshad (Vikrant Massey) and enjoy her life She has a hot affair with him while being engaged to another man and the audience’s reaction – echoes of laughter when she has sex Are we laughing at the lives of many women who have a hundred decisions to make Are we laughing at all their suffering and pain when they decide to give up on something they love for something that is more respectable The fight is real and director Alankrita succeeded in giving the audience – male and female – a guide to what is happening to women in the country today She chose four women from different age groups and different religion and succeeded in telling a tale about their secret lives She succeeded as a storyteller Her film got the much-needed attention especially after the censor board’s move to ban it But after all that when the society was shown a mirror at what is happening today – all that happened was echoes of laughter The discussion after the film was seen was about how bold the movie was how great the actors performed However no one spoke about why the women did what they did There was no observations made about the characters in the story If by chance you hear such conversation – it happens to be among people who are already aware of the state that women are in today The conversation is not happening among that part of the country which needs this awareness the most For all the latest

by agitators demanding separate Gorkhaland state the 29th day of the indefinite shutdown today State Tourism minister Gautam Deb also alleged that GJM activists hurled stones at him when he had gone there to attend a programme It is well known that Shatrughan Sinha has been angrywith the Bhartiya Janata Party for a while The dislike is mutual between Patna’s Lok Sabha MP and the Bhartiya Janata Party both in Delhi and Bihar Sinha became an almost-open rebel by meeting with Nitish Kumar on the evening of the day prime minister Modi strongly attacked the Bihar chief minister If Modi attacked the chief minister’s performance inBihar Shatrughan Sinha praised it If Modi attacked the chief minister personally even questioning his DNA ‘Shotgun’ Sinha said such bitterness could have been avoided In his press conference today he said the BJP was his first and last party Yet he also said “Kal kisne dekha hai (who has seen tomorrow) I do not know whether tomorrow I would be thrown out of the party or embraced by it…I have not thought about it” Shatrughan Sinha with Pavan Verma after meeting with Nitish Kumar Image courtesy: Shivam Vij Instead of embarrassing his party and its leader why doesn’t Sinha simply leave the BJP The answer: the anti-defection law which would force him to resign as Patna MP if he were to defect from the BJP If the BJP were to sack him he wouldn’t attract the penal provisions of the anti-defection law This leaves the BJP in a Catch-22 situation If it doesn’t sack Sinha he could keep provoking and embarrassing the party If it sacks him he will join Nitish Kumar’s JDU That would be an embarrassment the BJP can’t afford before the October polls in Bihar It may have sidelined Sinha but can’t discount his abilities as a crowd puller Sinha clarified in a press conference that his leader is Narendra Modi and that he has utmost respect for the BJP but this is all sweet talk to help him come across as a victim and not a rebel In truth the very act of going across to the chief minister’s residence for three hours in the evening was message enough from him He has let it be known that he was taken there by JDU’s Rajya Sabha MP Pavan Verma In comments to the media he praised not only Nitish Kumar but also Pavan Varma in glowing terms A failing marriage So bad are the relations between Shatrughan Sinha and his party that he was not even invited to the prime minister’s rally in Muzaffarpur on Saturday just as he was not invited to BJP president Amit Shah’s rally in Patna’s Gandhi Maidan on 16 July He was present at the prime minister’s inauguration of various projects at Patna’s veterinary college yesterday but that’s only because protocol demanded inviting the Patna MP Sinha wasn’t even used as a star campaigner in the Jharkhand assembly elections and his offer to mediate in the controversy at his alma matter the Film and Television Institute of India was not taken up In the Vajpayee cabinet Sinha was minister in 2003-04 He expected to be made a minister in the Modi cabinet too but has been overshadowed by another Bihari Ravi Shankar Prasad "People ask me why I have not been included inNarendra Modicabinet despite having seniority experience and popularity but I have no answer" Sinha told the Press Trust of India in May this year Sinha’s response to being dumped is to regularly provoke the party The meeting with Nitish Kumar has come after weeks of provocative public statements Knowing fully well that the BJP wants to contest the Bihar elections with Narendra Modi as its face Sinha told the media that Ram Vilas Paswan or Jitan Ram Manjhi (both Dalits) should be declared the party’s chief ministerial candidate It doesn’t help that Sinha is considered close to LK Advani who has been left out in the cold by prime minister Narendra Modi In an interview to Mumbai Mirror newspaper just two weeks ago Sinha was openly critical of the party and the Modi government and said that LK Advani had twice wanted himto be made Bihar chief minister Sinha has unsurprisingly been vocal in his demand to give LK Advani due importance in the BJP’s decision making processes Prime Minister Modi attended Sinha’s son Kussh’s wedding in Mumbai in January but their relations have been going downhill since then Sinha’s grouse is not just that his party isn’t giving him any post but that they aren’t even giving him respect The BJP on its part feels that Sinha has a big ego and is too ambitious Some question his political abilities and achievements given he spends more time in Mumbai than Patna The 69-year-old Bollywood star said no political meaning should be attached to his meeting with CM Nitish Kumar even though he clearly intended to convey nothing but a political message The chief minister’s office tipped off ETV Bihar about the meeting and a TV reporter was standing inthe portico when Sinha and Pavan Varma were leaving around 10 pm Sinha gave the TV channel a statement that resulted inhim getting a floodof phone calls from local and national media within minutes When Firstpost spoke to him a smiling Pavan Varma quoted Mirza Ghalib: Kehta Hun Sach Ke Jhut Ki Aadat Nahin

to sign the Logistics Support Agreement with the US Congress on Wednesdaysaid it is "disastrous" and will hit the independence of India’s foreign policy while Left parties termed it as "dangerous and anti-national" "NDA government’s decision to sign Logistics Support Agreement with the US is the beginning of the end of the independence of India’s foreign policy and strategic autonomy" "It is a disastrous decision Government should retract the decision and should not sign this agreement and other foundation agreements" senior party leader A K Antony who was Defence Minister in the UPA regime told PTI Left parties also lashed out at the government for its "in principle" agreement for a Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA) with the US terming it as "dangerous and anti-national" move and demanded that it "immediately retract" from inking the agreement Accusing Government of "crossing line" with the move which the parties said "no other government" had taken since independence they charged the Narendra Modi dispensation of converting India into a "full-fledged" military ally of Washington and "compromising" country’s strategic autonomy The communist parties also claimed that there is "no transparency" in what the Union Government does with regard to "such critical policy matters" as Parliament is not taken into confidence and sought to know why the dispensation is "desperate" to "please" US by taking the step "voluntarily" "Modi government has taken the dangerous step…In doing so the BJP Government has crossed a line which no other government has done since independence – converting India into a full-fledged military ally of the United States" the CPM noted in a statement India and the US had on Tuesday agreed "in principle" to the logistics exchange agreement to enable both militaries to use each other’s assets and bases for repair and replenishment of supplies Prime Minister Narendra Modi Reuters Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and visiting US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter had however made it clear that the agreement which will be signed in "weeks" or "coming months" does not entail deployment of American troops on Indian soil Antony insisted that by signing this agreement India would be gradually becoming part of the American military bloc "When UPA was in power India had all along resisted such proposals India had traditional relationship with Soviet Union now Russia from the very beginning Of late we are steadily improving our relations with the US also We always resisted pressure from everybody to be part of a military bloc" he said By inking such an agreement India will allow the US Military mainly Navy and Air force to use its facilities for their smooth operations Antony said "They can refuel their warheads their ships and aircraft etc and if necessary keep their military equipment on Indian soil" he warned Contending that India rarely operates beyond its shores the Congress leader said "This agreement practically gives very little advantage to it but gives enormous opportunity to US Military" This is especially true at a time when the US has announced that in the next three years 60 per cent of U S Marines will be placed in Asia-Pacific region he said "It means gradually India will become one of their major facilitator It is a dangerous game It will become part of military conflicts It will affect our strategic autonomy In eyes of the world India will become part of the U S military bloc" Antony added The CPM accused the government of "compromising" national sovereignty and the country’s strategic autonomy of the country with the decision and urged all political parties and "patriotic" citizens to oppose Centre’s "surrender" to the US "The (NDA) Government must be told that these anti-national steps do not have the support of the people It should immediately retract from signing the Logistics Agreement" the party insisted It described LEMOA as "just another name" for the Logistic Support Agreement (LSA) that US enters into with military allies like Philippines South Korea and Japan The party cautioned that "unlike what" Parrikar says refuelling maintenance and repair facilities for American ships and airplanes will require stationing of US armed forces personnel on Indian soil on a regular basis "Along with this agreement the Defence Minister has indicated that two other agreements are on the anvil Communication and Information Security Memorandum of Agreement (CISMOA) and Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA) These will make Indian armed forces command and control structure integrated with the US armed forces" it said CPI national secretary D Raja said there is "no transparency" in what the Union Government does on "critical" policy matters and asked it to explain why it is "desperate" to please Washington "Earlier there used to be tremendous pressure on India from the US to have access to our ports for refueling and such things Now India is voluntarily offering all help to the US Why is India so desperate to please the US This Modi Government will have to explain" the Rajya Sabha member said Condemning the decision JD(U) said it "compromises" national security and appealed to all the opposition parties to come together to oppose the move "This is a clever conspiracy of the US to strengthen its military set up in Asian countries and India is not going to be benefited by this Janta Dal (United) condemns the central government’s move to deepen military tie-up with the US "This step of the government has not only compromised the national security but also brought India into a military alliance with the US like other military organisations such as SEATO and NATO" the party’s spokesperson K C Tyagi said in a statement No previous government took such a decision and India has been a non-allied nation since its independence he said JD(U) will also raise this issue in the
