If only he had just got this right If the BJP had been a rightist partyit would have stopped the government pouring good money into bad schemes while at the same time taking steps to kill investment If the BJP cared for the richthen last week it had a good chance to speak up against the criminal charges filed against one of Indias most respected industrialistsKumaramangalam Birla It would have spoken up long ago for other industrialists who suffered at the hands of a government that has spent the past five years closing down major projects in which huge investments had been made Not only did the BJP not speak for these rich menits senior leaders went out of their way to protest against FDI in the retail sector Not rightist at all Andalmost always when they speak in Parliament they sound just as socialist as the most passionate socialists in the Congress Andif they turn to their alma materthe RSSfor advice all they get is a lecture on swadeshi or some gobbledygook about Gandhian socialism It is a shame that the shutdown of the American government got so little attention in India There was much we could have learned from it I do not support the efforts of the Republican extreme right to shut down the US governmentbut in an Indian contextI support all efforts to keep government spending under control As its bounden duty to the people of Indiathe main opposition in Parliament should behave like a watchdog when it comes to government spending Especially when peoples money is wasted on the wrong things In the past five yearsreckless spending has been the leitmotif of Sonia Gandhis government This is why we are nearly broke Sonia hasin the name of the poorspent thousands of crore rupees on giving Indias poorest citizens handouts In my rightist viewthe money spent on these schemes could have been much more beneficially spent on improving the hideous conditions in which people live in rural Indiaby investing in sanitationschoolsroadspublic transport and clean water Every Budget session I have waited for the BJPs luminaries to protest not just about useless welfare schemes but about the amount of money that government continues to spend on itself We do not need armies of clerks swarming about in the offices of the Government of India We do not need high officials to have so many peons in attendance that they do not bother to carry their own briefcases from their cars to their offices We do not need high officials to go abroad for medical treatment and yet this government just passed a law giving them this privilege Andthrough it allthe BJP remained deafeningly silent Why Why did they not speak against a food security law that will not reduce malnutrition in underprivileged children but will surely bankrupt India A rightist party would have pointed out that even on food securitythe money could have been better spent on improvements in midday meal schemesbuilding modern warehouses for food grain and on improving roads so that nearly half of what Indias farmers produce would no longer be lost in transportation Had the BJP been rightist in its ideas it would have not allowed the passage of the Right to Education law It has done nothing to improve abysmal standards of public education and has interfered with private schoolsforcing them to shoulder the burden of educating underprivileged children In doing this it absolves the State from cleaning up its own act Government schools across India are shrines to illiteracy and ignorance The question the BJP can ask on our behalf is whywith all the rights given to us by the Sonia-Manmohan governmentpublic services have not improved The question it can ask itself is why it kept quiet when economic policies were made to satisfy the vanities of the Dynasty Follow Tavleen

FIFA World Cup match in Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium in Kochi on Saturday (Source: PTI) Top News A dominant Brazil made a strong statement of their top title contender status with a 2-1 victory over Spain in a Group D marquee clash of the FIFA U-17 World Cup here today In a much-anticipated encounter in front of a sell-out crowd Spain made a flying start and took the lead in the fifth minute through an own goal by Brazil defender Wesley but soon lost the plot as the Brazilians turned the table on them Brazil the overwhelming favourites of the packed stadium took control of the match just after conceding the goal with far more possession and attacking They scored through Lincoln (25th minute) and Paulinho (45+1) The absence of Vinicius Junior was not felt as Brazil’s attacking trio of Lincoln Paulinho and Brenner played better than their Spanish counterparts Alan and Marcos Antonio gave the trio enough support Spain who had five players from the famous La Masia academy and four from Real Madrid academy were hit hard by the high humidity of Kochi while the Brazilians were able to cope with the situation as they had been in India for more than 10 days The fast-paced and open match between the champion sides of South America and Europe initially promised to be a goal fest but it was not to be The neat exchange of passes swift movement in attack and counter-attack were all there to see though Spain began the match brightly pressing hard in the attacking third and drew the first blood in the fifth minute Ferran Torres got the better of his marker at the right flank and sent an inch-perfect low cross for Mohammed Moukhliss to send the ball in the direction of the post The last touch however was that of Wesley and an own goal was awarded against his name Spain dominated for a few minutes after the first goal but Brazil soon began to impose themselves on the match Paulinho drilled in a low shot in the 18th minute which the Spain goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez deflected off his hands and Lincoln missed the target off the rebound It was a matter of time before Brazil restored parity as Paulinho Lincoln and Brenner began to have clear looks at the Spain goal which fell in the 25th minute A brilliant grounded cross from the left by Brenner found Lincoln in the perfect position inside the box and he slotted the ball home in his second attempt Then in the 34th minute Spain defender Mateu Jaume was taken off due to dehydration and was replaced by Victor Perea Gomez Brazil took the lead in the first half injury time through Paulinho Marcos Antonio’s brilliant lobbed pass found the forward in a perfect position to fire it in and make it 2 -1 for the South American side Spain did better in the second session and pressed hard for the equaliser but Brazil defence stood firm It was end-to-end action in most part of the second session Spain looked for goals but Brazil hit them on the counter at will Marcos Antonio took on his marker and beat him for pace on one such opportunity but his cross for Paulinho in the middle was cut out by the Spanish goalkeeper For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top

News The inexorable march of technology continues to reshape our lives much of what is cutting edge today is rendered obsolete in the blink of an eye In the last two decades for instance we’ve gone from making mixed tapes to burning CDs to plugging our iPods directly into our computers Cassettes are so very late-1980s and storing data on tape now in the 2010s seems like an inefficient and eccentric trip down memory lane But now Japanese electronics giant Sony has tweaked the way magnetic tape is produced enabling data storage of up to 185 terabytes of data — 74 times the capacity of traditional tapes and the equivalent of 3700 Blu-ray discs That means the improved cassette won’t just be valuable to a vintage tech-collector on a nostalgia trip but also surpasses all digital rivals in terms of sheer capacity This fascination for older technology is hardly unprecedented Consider for instance the preference of certain record collectors many of whom were born after CDs became popular in the 1990s for vinyl The vinyl resurgence flummoxed many when the trend was first spotted a few years ago but these days every major record label — and even the smaller ones — release LPs (as vinyl is also called) to satisfy young audiophiles who believe vinyl yields a depth and warmth in tone that MP3s lack Nor is the resistance to the onslaught of technology limited to music storage

anyone who watches private news channels what they think of it — “Aapko kaisa lagta hai” — and no one will admit “Achcha lagta hai” Everyone will roundly criticise it even those who cannot eat pray or sleep without watching it every night It’s crass loud sensational slanted twisted false — above all it’s not news In his latest book Behind A Billion Screens academic and journalist Nalin Mehta attempts to explain why this is so According to him it’s a case of either too little or too much: too many channels (800 licensed channels150 24×7 news channels) vying for too little advertising revenue generating too much competition — and may the loudest win Too many fly-by-night operators starting up news channels for “power” too much political patronage/interference too many regulating agencies too little talent and much too little of that “vision thing” One other sobering fact: TV news has a 7 per cent market share of TV viewership and thus doesn’t represent “the nation” contrary to some claims In this volume his second on the industry after India on Television Mehta explores these issues which he argues have contributed to bad economics and poor content His research finds that in India TV “is far more diverse” than in other “comparable” countries It has low densities in terms of ownership patterns or concentration of viewership although five media houses (Star Zee Sony Sun and Viacom) together own 61 per cent viewing market share No company however controls more than 20 per cent of the national market (Star TV) If a monopoly problem exists it’s in states like Andhra Pradesh Tamil Nadu and Karnataka — Sun TV in Tamil Nadu for example Intense competition an ineffectual subscription model a rating viewership system not representative but nevertheless the sole arbiter have made TV channels wholly dependent on advertising for revenues Mehta argues these compulsions make broadcasters spend less on content and more on distribution/carriage True but Mehta is rather kind here As he reveals at the outset Behind A Billion Screens was originally a joint venture between him and Star CEO Uday Shankar — Shankar is quoted liberally throughout the book Mehta also worked at Headlines Today While this gives him a deeper understanding of how the TV industry works it also makes him somewhat complicit While he mentions the lack of “talent” and the absence of “the vision thing” economics alone cannot explain the poor content Broadcasters have bowed before TRPs settled for soap operas (on news TV too) instead of creating original programming or practising journalism Partly this is because “who owns TV” Ostensibly the “public” after the Supreme Court’s 1995 ruling As many of us know however other than big media houses like Rupert Murdoch’s Star TV Subhash Chandra Goel’s Zee group the Marans’ Sun TV there are new corporate entrants like Reliance (Network 18) and Aditya Birla (India Today) More worryingly politicians and businesses with interests in real estate chit funds or personal finance schemes own news channels (remember Saradha in West Bengal) It is the latter’s ownership of TV news across India that has given it a bad name: these channels do not promote journalism but the interests of their owners Political ownership of TV channels or distribution networks is also widespread in the south Punjab Chhattisgarh and West Bengal Mehta backs TRAI on keeping politicians out of broadcasting and increasing foreign funding from 26 per cent to 49 per cent The crisis in TV is also because the regulatory mechanism is complex confused often contradictory While the department of telecommunications regulates bandwidth the I&B ministry dispenses broadcasting licenses and as Sun TV learnt recently the home ministry can always raise “security” objections Mehta supports self-regulation for the industry instead of an independent Media Council What he doesn’t say is that evidence suggests that the political establishment and TV industry are content with this status quo which allows them to leverage each other when and if necessary Mehta’s last chapter is more provocative: it outlines the challenge coming up next for broadcasting from the internet Using the Netflix example and its success with the online telecast of House Cards he says more than the print media broadcasters are unprepared for the future which is upon us One question: why does Mehta all but completely ignore the general entertainment segment And the phenomenon of paid news This is a well-researched thoroughly documented account of what ails
