At Make-In-India Show, Mangalyaan is a Star

At Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Make-In-India” event, the success of Mangalyaan, or Mars mission, was held up as an example of the country’s potential.

“Nobody can question the talent of our people, especially after yesterday’s Mars mission. The parts of the Mangalyaan were made in small factories in India. it proves there is no death of talent,” PM Modi said, a day after he witnessed Mangalyaan successfully enter the orbit of Mars.

Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani had earlier said Mangalyaan had shown what India can achieve. “India’s Mars mission cost less than Rs. 7 per km, which is less than the cost of travel by an auto in major Indian cities,” he said.

On Wednesday, PM Modi had also marveled that the mission cost less than a Hollywood movie.

ICICI bank chief Chanda Kocchar also referenced Mangalyaan. “Today, with a lot of pride we can all stand here and claim that it is India’s indigenous technology on Mars. This was achieved in just $74 million,” she said.

Mangalyaan is the cheapest inter-planetary mission ever. At Rs. 450 crore, it costs just about Rs. 4 per person in India.

SAHARA SEBI: IMAGINE?

Let’s Imagine! Imagine Charlie Chaplin not being the legendary comedian that he was. Or Arnold Swarzeneger not the action icon we all know him as. Imagine Sachin Tendulkar not being the celebrated cricketer but a regular 9 to 5 school teacher or if electricity was never invented. What would it be like if Newton had never discovered the Law of Gravity or Einstein had not made those elaborate inventions? What if Elvis continued driving trucks or Satyajit Ray wasn’t an illustrious story teller? Difficult and rather unfamiliar and absurd hypothesis! Would these people be still famous, brilliant and celebrated if they were not in their chosen professions? What would have our lives been like in the absence of these people or their world changing contributions to humanity? The answer can only be left to one’s imagination and with no certainty can anyone claim that they be who they are today or what would our existence been like, if these men were not true to their calling.

background

Now for a moment, let’s imagine a bit further. Would Sahara India have avoided the existential crisis, they are in today, had they not chosen to provide a sound, secure & lawful financial structure to a stratum of the society who has always stood ignored amongst the tall claims of social and economic development? What would the lives and future of these millions of depositors would have been like if they didn’t have a secure medium to invest and save and flourish? What would the future of the children growing in these millions of households have hold? Would they be educated? Would there be employment for the unemployed or the less skilled or the poor? Would there have been economic empowerment for the have nots who do not have the means or the sanction to even hold a bank account or a legitimate Id? Would the chief of Sahara India, Subrata Roy, have saved himself the witch hunt by a National Regulator or avoided jail had he chosen to create a lush empire and focused on serving himself rather than serving the people? Such a swarm of hypotheticals starting with just one simple question, “Imagine?”

Sadly, there are no simple answers. Only simple questions. The answers are complex, unfathomable and lead down to a road of nefarious possible motives, juxtapositions & outcomes. SEBI’s motives juxtaposed with the Court’s senseless brickbat blows on the Sahara Chief only adds insult to the common man’s understanding of productive regulation and fair justice. Even more dangerously, the imagination of SEBI and the Courts have taken a turn for the worse and seem to be more heavily invested in feeding their own egos, their illogic and mindless banter rather than using that imagination to serve and secure.

Currently, SEBI has been claiming that investor accounts provided by Sahara are fictitious and the regulator’s independent verification has failed to make any headway. SEBI so far has been able to repay less than 1 crore rupees to OFCD investors even though its been 18 months since Sahara deposited 5,120 crore rupees with the market watchdog. Interestingly, in 2008, Sahara had paid back around 4 crore depositors under strict supervision of Reserve Bank of India. The central bank, then, did not stumble upon any such fictitious account and the OFCD issue had almost same set of investors. So is SEBI imagining these investors as fictitious or is it disguising its incompetence. To further add to the comedy of errors, the Supreme Court has expressed its displeasure over SEBI’s tardy pace in verifying these investor accounts in Sahara’s OFCD issue. I can only imagine the embarrassment the courts must be facing at the hands of the regulator’s malfunction. And who is paying the price for all this mockery. The innocent, the lawful and the poor!

Let’s tax our imagination one more time and explore another set premise. What if Sahara is innocent? What if the Sahara supremo is being wrongfully accused and punished? Is SEBI acting in the best interest of the depositors or is it blinded by its punitive sense of dominion? What would it be like if SEBI realized and acknowledged that these investors in question are for real? What would it be like if there was no Sahara to begin with? Are these questions that have real and heavy implications or are they just plain rhetoric?

The answers can only be left to unfold as time and events pass by. The outcomes would be real and the consequences can either set unhealthy & dire precedents or can pave way to a truthful, mindful and fair premise. Just
IMAGINE..!!!

Mayawati asks Dalits, Muslims to vote unitedly for BSP

Addressing a largely-attended election meeting here, the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said no change has come in economic condition of Dalits and minorities during the over 50-year rule of Congress and six years of BJP at the Centre.

It was only the BSP that could address the grievances of the Dalits, the poor and the minorities, she said and urged the people to vote for her party.

Attacking BJP, she said it was the party of capitalists and “dhanna seths with whose money the elections were being fought”.

“If the party wins it will work for those who paid for their election expenses,” she said.

Coming down heavily on BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, she said he had now started talking about his Dalit root, but had not so far specified which caste among the Dalits he hailed from.

Slamming Modi over the 2002 riots, she said the country would be plunged into communal riots and would be destroyed if Modi even by mistake becomes the prime minister.

She said there was neither communal amity nor law and order in Uttar Pradesh and held the SP government responsible for the Muzaffarnagar riots, in which “both Muslims and Hindus had suffered”.

Listing out the “works” done by the government when she was in power four times in the state, Mayawati said good work for “sarva samaj”, especially the Dalits, minorities and the poor of the upper castes, would be extended to the whole country, if BSP got the reins of government at the Centre.

She said as many as 17 Muslims had been given BSP tickets for the Lok Sabha polls, and claimed in Firozabad she had to change the nominee after the SP “government wrongly put the party’s Muslim candidate in jail and harassed another Muslim hopeful” forcing her to give the ticket to a kshatriya.

Taking a dig at RLD candidate Amar Singh, she said he was bringing “dancers and singers” from Mumbai to woo the crowds, and added while these artistes could provide entertainment, they could not get votes for Singh.

Mayawati said, “He destroys whichever party he goes to. Even Ajit Singh (RLD chief) himself will not be able to win with Amar Singh around him,” she said.

Mayawati ended her speech with a fervent appeal to her supporters to send enough members to the Lok Sabha so that a “Daughter of the Dalit class can become the Prime Minister”.

IIFL Wealth Management buys India Alternatives Fund

Brokerage firm IIFL’s wealth management arm on Monday said it has acquired a majority stake in private equity fund India Alternatives for an undisclosed sum.

IIFL Wealth Management has acquired the stake in India Alternatives Investment Advisors, the investment manager to India Alternatives Private Equity Fund, which already has Rs 230 crore in commitments, an IIFL statement said.

The India Alt Fund, which is registered with capital market regulator Sebi, invests in mid-stage growth companies, the statement said.

According to some reports, it has made three investments since 2010, two in the education space and the third, a co-investment with another fund, in an undergarments maker.

IIFL, which already managers a private equity fund devoted for the realty space, has committed a “significant contribution” to the India Alt Fund (IAF), the statement said.

IAF is founded by the Wharton School alumni Shivani Bhasin Sachdeva, the statement said, adding she will continue to manage the fund, now under IIFL Wealth.

She said the fund is looking at investments in the consumer and consumables, healthcare and pharma space.

Nido Taniam’s death: Kejriwal joins protest, assures action

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday joined the Northeast students at Jantar Mantar to protest against the death of Arunachal boy 19-year-old Nido Taniam.

On Monday, Kejriwal had assured a delegation of Northeast students in the capital that he would join their protest for speedy justice for Taniam.

Last Wednesday, Taniam, a B.Sc student at Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, was on his way to a friend’s house in Lajpat Nagar when he got into a scuffle with several men, who commented on his appearance. Taniam was found dead at his relative’s house in Green Park Extension the following day.

Addresing the protesters at Jantar Mantar, Kejriwal hit out at Delhi Police as he said that they ordered majesterial inquiry and the truth will come out in three-four weeks. “Why was an FIR registered two days after Nido’s death? How can Delhi Police conduct independent inquiry when they are among the accused?” asked Kejriwal as he assured that the truth will emerge from the magisterial inquiry in 3-4 weeks.

“Nido’s fight is not for the people of Northeast but for the whole nation. Delhi’s criminal justice system should be fixed to make Delhi a safer place for everyone and for people of Northeast,” the Delhi CM said.

Kejriwal further announced to include the history of Northeast India in the syllabus of Delhi. The Delhi CM also asked the delegation of protesters to form a committee and they will declare it as the official committee of Delhi government. “You give us the suggestions and we will implement it,” he said.

Delhi’s education minister Manish Sisodia said: “From next session Delhi school books will include history of Northeast India. The education department will inform Delhi people about people of Northeast.”

Kejriwal’s move comes a day after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi visited Jantar Mantar and spoke to demonstrators protesting the death of Taniam.
