be announced only on Friday and even the exit polls were not yet out when the Organiser and Panchjanya went to press the weeklies did not hesitate in declaring Narendra Modi’s electoral victory a fait accompli “Right from media surveys to TV debates and from the ghats of Varanasi to leaders’ faces in Amethi the outcome of the 16th Lok Sabha election appears certain like any day on the calendar It is only a matter of turning the page to a certain day” declares Panchjanya with Modi’s cover picture asserting his victory The Organiser highlights how the “so-called divisive figure” of Modi turned into a “unifying” force while Rahul Gandhi missed the plot altogether and became a “liability” for his party “The campaign trail of these elections was unique in many senses BJP’s Narendra Modi who was consistently attacked by [the] secular brigade as ‘divisive figure’ turned out to be a unifying force for the nation On the other hand Congress’s Rahul proved to be a liability to the party” says the cover story in the Organiser its front page declaring that “in response to meticulous campaign run by Modi Congress is just a trailing reactionary force” ADANI IN ELECTION Against the backdrop of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s attempt to drag the Adani group’s association with Narendra Modi into the election campaign in order to project the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate as pro-rich a two-page report in Panchjanya expresses concerns about dragging the names of corporates into the campaign: “From Arvind Kejriwal to even small-time politicians are hurling allegations against Adani For what purposes is the world of industry being dragged into the election campaign This is not going to send any positive message to national or international investors” says the article underscoring that the “Congress and Aam Aadmi Party are training their guns against corporates” The report also tries to dispel allegations of Modi’s Gujarat government favouring Ambani and Adani saying that “Ambani and Adani had heavy investments even before Modi became Gujarat chief minister Ambani and Adani are also making similar investments in other states as well” The Sangh Parivar’s affection for

Although suggesting that such violence is an outcome of the rising number of Bangladeshi infiltrators the reports in both weeklies say that electoral politics is behind the recent violence “Usually a Bodo has been winning the Kokrajhar Lok Sabha seat but apprehensions about this trend not continuing in the wake of an understanding between non-Bodo organisations and about four lakh Muslims are being considered a reason for the violence…” says Panchjanya in its report “Unlike earlier the recent spate of violence in the Kokrajhar and Baksa districts of the Bodoland Territorial Area District (BTAD) in Assam has been triggered by electoral politics and not over the control of land” says the report underlining that “this time the violence has been restricted to the Kokrajhar parliamentary constituency where Bengali Muslims have been targeted as they are suspected to have voted against the Bodoland People’s Front’s (BPF) candidate” Both weeklies however criticise Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee for their attitude towards alleged Bangladeshi infiltrators to suit their “vote bank politics” Compiled by Ravish Tiwari For all the latest Opinion News

Aaraah Avinash Das talks about the making of the film and his days of struggle Related News How did your film come about Anaarkali of Aarah has been inspired by Tarabano Faizabadi from Faizabad a popular singer of bawdy songs in Bhojpuri She could have stayed in Faizabad if she hadn’t been chased out or made to starve So she had to flee and live in the slums of Seelampur in Delhi and Andheri Mumbai I’ve tried hard to look for her but I’ve been unsuccessful In my film Anaarkali is a woman who has struggled a lot to make a life for herself on her own terms Even if she were to be completely on her own she would still fight and not fear death Your film takes off with a bang literally A singer is shot when she reaches out to collect a tip You remember recently in Haryana where a dancer was shot and killed at a wedding These kind of things have always happened in smaller towns and cities Earlier it would take a while for the news to reach the media but now there are editions everywhere There is an information revolution in India especially with social media and WhatsApp So now people in the metropolis know about these occurrences And that can be helpful for somebody like Anaarkali Some critics and viewers have drawn parallels between your film and Pink I really like Pink It’s got a great message Yes both films talk about consent But my film is also about class — Pink is set in Delhi an urban context Anaarkali of Aarah is not a person whose rights will be defended in court by a lawyer She’ll have to fight for her own rights in the best way she knows We have a flower in Darbhanga Bihar where I’m from called dus bajiya phool It blooms at 10 o’clock and its petals close after an hour Anaarkali is like that Everybody wants to see her sing and dance but she’s treated like an untouchable Look at the Dalit history and discourse: they didn’t have an outsider fighting for their rights Ambedkar was one of their own It wouldn’t ring true if somebody else came to say “No means No” on Anaarkali’s behalf Also the story should stand on its own It’s not about the message Anaarkali of Aarah is not about telling people what to do; it’s a true story that has been depicted on the big screen People are fighting battles like these every day in every part of India Your film is authentic in its dialogues songs and costumes How important was it to set it in Bihar Very important I can’t tell a story truthfully of a place I don’t know I’d like to make a film set in Mumbai but it will look and sound fake because I don’t know this city I know Bihar and I’m worried that viewers might not understand all of the Bhojpuri-Hindi spoken in my film But I wanted to keep it that way You can’t just say humra-tumra and call it Bihari or Bhojpuri Your cast mainly Swara Bhaskar and Sanjay Mishra have been remarkable Swara has gone above and beyond in her dedication to the film I met her through a mutual friend Raj Shekhar the lyricist who cooks excellent mutton and invited a bunch of us to dinner Swara and I got to talking and I told her the story I had already written 80-90 pages and she was very excited at the idea stage itself Many people told me that Sanjay should not be cast as a villain His last few roles have been positive ones But I disagreed He’s such an incredible actor he can become anybody even with a ridiculous wig There was some disagreement in our team while we were shooting the end on whether a man like his character who is trying to destroy Anaarkali would cry I wanted to show that a bad guy can cry when confronted by a stronger person that an evil man can also look into the mirror and not like what he sees Growing up in Darbhanga did you know you wanted to make films Yes I never spoke about it when I was younger because I didn’t want people to laugh at me I watched every movie that came to Darbhanga because it was a new world something different was happening on the big screen In Patna I became a member of a cine-society and watched a lot of world cinema In 2002 I set up a cine commune for people to come together and talk about films Years later after I moved to Delhi I started another cine commune where Anurag Kashyap

successor to Raghuram Rajan to the top job at the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is over the focus shifts to the challenges facing the new governor For Urjit Patel there will be no immediate trial by fire unlike for Rajan who took over when the economy was battling double-digit inflation and a rupee in free fall That is hardly the case now with India’s fiscal as well as current account deficits under control and the rupee among the better-performing currencies in the last two years True consumer price index (CPI) inflation has been on the rise The latest 607 per cent annual rate for July is not just the highest in 23 months but also more than the six per cent upper limit target fixed under the new statutory monetary policy committee (MPC) framework The current inflation number should however ease with the arrival of a bumper kharif crop from October on the back of a good southwest monsoon Adherence to a six per cent inflation target can nevertheless be challenging down the line when it is defined in terms of an index where food items have a nearly 46 per cent weight With the economy far from showing tangible signs of revival there is certainly a strong case for lowering interest rates today The pressure for that will increase if growth — more so in investments and jobs — remains weak even as the present government enters the second half of its tenure If harvest failures tomorrow were to result in interest rates going up even while the underlying demand factors for generalised inflation are absent it could create a politically (and economically) unsustainable situation of joblessness co-existing with high food prices Inflation targeting based on overall CPI — a committee under Patel was the one that first proposed it — may have had relevance in 2013-14 when India’s commitment to macroeconomic stability was under a cloud In the present context though some tweaking may be in order The MPC — the new body headed by the RBI governor which will be responsible for setting policy rates — can consider some “core” CPI measure that would reflect generalised inflationary pressures stripped of volatile components like food and oil prices Patel would also do well with continuing the policies of Rajan with regard to full recognition of stressed loans by banks transparent licensing of new banks and pushing financial inclusion including by making bank-to-bank account transfers easier via mobile using the new Unified Payment Interface Equally important is working closely with the Centre to reform governance in state-owned banks The ongoing
