Kanjilal | Published: June 23 2014 12:31 am Prime Minister Narendra Modi (Source: PTI) Related News What is the Hindi for “yenna rascalla” the battle cry of enraged 20th century Tamil gentlemen How does one translate “aapke muh mein ghee-shakkar” which Narendra Modi turned sarcastically upon Sonia Gandhi during the election campaign and which sounds literally unpalatable outside the Hindi belt Such linguistic specificities help to explain why language issues reach smoke point so rapidly in India: our identities are natively rooted in speech Last week tempers rose over a notification prescribing the use of Hindi in the government’s social media communications and offering laughably tiny cash incentives for using the language in official business Flashpoint was averted by the discovery that this was only a UPA notification warmed over So the ham-fisted promotion of Hindi is just another bad habit inherited by the NDA from the UPA along with nebulous anxieties about NGOs and foreign money but the issue singed the government Very rarely does a procedural notification cause national irritation from Urdu-speaking Kashmir to Tamil-proud Kanyakumari Even the NDA’s allies present and potential were incensed The language issue is older than the Union of India In the 1920s the Congress had resolved to pursue the linguistic reorganisation of states to strengthen language identity at the expense of violence-prone markers like caste community and religion Linguistic demarcation was written into law in the States Reorganisation Act of 1956 but sadly unhealthy identity markers continued to flourish Rootedness in language is not exclusively an Indian phenomenon but possibly a subcontinental feature We identify the language wars with Dravidian politics but neighbouring Bangladesh offers a different scale altogether It owes nationhood to a language movement opposing the imposition of Urdu by West Pakistan The killing of students in Dhaka University on February 21 1952 is commemorated as Bhasha Andolan Dibas It is the most important national holiday since the spark lit by the movement burst into flame 19 years later in the Liberation War which redrew the map of South Asia and reordered the relationship between India and Pakistan In recognition of the profound historical and geopolitical influence of the movement the UN celebrates February 21 as International Mother Language Day In South Asia trying to valorise one language over another is always a fraught experiment and the results of imposing a language can be catastrophic Or ridiculous which is worse The organised state promotion of Hindi began in the Indira Gandhi era with the establishment of the Department of Official Language in the home ministry in the 1970s Its most palpable impact was the development of a shamelessly pseudo-Sanskritic pidgin which actually consisted of back-constructions from English The phrase “kaam pragati par hai” is an exact replica of “work in progress” but sounded meaningless and peculiar when it was coined India names its daughters Pragati but significantly no British or American women are named Progress “Bhoomigat paidal paar path” replicates “pedestrian underpass” but to a native Hindi speaker it sounds like machine-generated garbage that escaped the spam filter Mrs Gandhi’s synthetic garbage language is still visible on public signage and at the time was piped into homes via state television Fortunately people generally shrugged it off as yet another elaborate joke at public expense To return to the present notification promoting the use of Hindi Tamil Nadu’s political establishment has risen in high umbrage across party lines but what about the Indian people Are they as fearful of the loss of their regional cultures as they were in Mrs Gandhi’s time Then the linguistically defined identities marked by state borders were palpable You knew precisely when your train crossed an invisible state border Everything changed — the advertisements signage architecture people’s clothes the music on the radio Now cable TV the internet and cinema have flattened the cultural sphere a bit and acclimatised people to Hindi too Back in the 20th century Delhi used to worry about a basic question: could infinitely varied India ever have a national culture Dhanush among others has now given us the answer: yes sort of His soup song which was actually a movie promo was ramped up by cable and the internet This national culture is not based on language Rather it trivialises it It communicates by lampooning communication as in the popular Western cartoon shows on TV dubbed in Mumbai tapori It embarrasses itself in formal speech Haven’t you ever been in a flight where the cabin crew was inarticulate in three languages Would the citizenry of such a national culture put their lives on the line for linguistic identity like they once did in Tamil Nadu and Bangladesh Kiren Rijiju whose native Arunachal Pradesh isn’t exactly in the Hindi heartland and who finds himself in the unusual position of having to defend Hindi as minister of state for home should consider this question before his Department of Official Language shoots off another notification And if only to savour the delightful bizarreness of the language issue he could also ask himself: what is the Monpa for “Mind it rascalla” [email protected]

consumer prices The Bharat bandh called by various parties to protest against FDI and other reforms found no response in villages Speaking to small shopkeepers in villages after the bandhI found that most of them had not answered the call to close shops They were not agitated In factthey looked forward to the prospect of more prosperous farms The rural grocer understands that an increase in the purchasing power of farmers is directly proportional to an increase in business opportunities Of my personal experienceI can speak without fear of being contradicted I live on my farm and grow kinnowa citrus fruit I sell the fruit in wholesale markets or sabzi mandislike those in Delhi The kinnow tree yields a saleable amount of fruit only after six years of obsessivedevoted care Last yearI sold my kinnow at Rs 9 per kgfactoring in the cost of gradingwaxingpackaging and transportation to the mandi After an overnight truck journeythe kinnow was sold by street vendors to consumers at Rs 25 per kg Now this mammoth 300 per cent margin is preposterous and certainly worth fighting for That is exactly what the middlemen are doing Traders are reacting to the possibility of economic loss due to increased competition and I do not blame them for that But it is unacceptable that the farmer puts in the hard work and takes all the risks of value addition while traders make all the money In a system where everybody is entitled to make a profitthe farmer seems to be the odd one out Prices may go through the roof but the farmer will not get a share of the higher price that the consumer is forced to pay All that the farming community asks for now is a share of the proceeds that is commensurate with its efforts It is not against others in the value chain making profits; it is only worried about being able to sustain itself Private guilds of commission agentsstreet vendors and vegetable sellers in the retail market work in tandem to maximise returns for themselves The farmers share in the consumer price keeps going down even as the consumer pays more Yetwhen it comes to preparing guidelines for FDI in multibrand retailthe government seems to think only of protecting these guilds from the anticipated competition of large format stores Most agricultural produce sold in large retail stores will be horticultural produce Vegetables are grown by large families of small and marginal farmers who pool in labour to add value If the consumer price is allowed to percolate down moresuch farmers will benefit Currentlythe Indian farmer is bereft of choice He has to sell at the mandi and accept whatever price the buyer offers Given the perishable nature of fruit and vegetablesthe farmer is compelled to sell his crop right after the harvest He cannot wait for a better price and is thus exploited by these guilds The market is regulated in favour of traders and middlemen But India is too diverse for large retailers to be the sole purchasers of its farm produce That means farmers will also continue to sell to agents or middlemen Logicallythe large corporations would need to bypass the middlemen to make a bigger profitbut this may not always be the case To ensure this happensit could be made mandatory that every prospective retailerwhether Indian or foreignwith an investment of Rs 5 crore purchases three-quarters of the agricultural produce sold in the retail store directly from the farmers This condition would exclude all small kirana store owners and so on Given the dire straits the Indian farmer is in todayhe could hardly care about what kind of buyer purchases his vegetables His priority would be to find a reasonable price for his produce Government policy must encourage fair competition for balanced growth FDI could be a means to infuse competition while challenging the existing stranglehold of agents and traders Farmers can leverage that very competition to get better prices FDI should be viewed as a way of managing excess and waste and of ensuring accessibility While farmers will be able to access more buyersconsumers will be able to get food at lower prices FDI in retail is a step forwardbut it should have been preceded by deregulation and reforms in the archaic laws that prevail in the farm sector This becomes more difficult because agriculture is a state subject; marketing laws are controlled separately and are different in various states FDI in multibrand retail may not be a reform in itselfbut it is definitely a worthwhile notification But the government is too focused on trying to convince traders that there is nothing to fear That effort should have been put into convincing farmers that this is good for them It would have won the government significant support from farmers FDI is not the game changer that the government or the opposition is making it out to be A fair share of Indias growth story is what farmers are asking for This has become a national political debate in which everyone is
