The results of the IIT entrance exam JEE-Advanced released on September 11th showed that the IIT Delhi zone had the most number of candidates in the top 500 with 133. Followed closely by IIT Madras zone with 132 candidates and IIT Bombay zone with 126 students. And in the top 10 list, IIT Madras circle was ahead with five candidates followed by IIT Bombay Zone at three and IIT Delhi and Kharagpur zones each claiming one spot each.      Uttar Pradesh emerged as the top state with 3,864 qualifying candidates while Rajasthan, home to tuition hub Kota, took the second spot with 3,339 candidates. Maharashtra is sending 3,036 candidates to IITs whereas coaching hubs of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana ranked fourth and fifth.  Tamil Nadu, which boasts of the highest annual enrolment into various engineering courses, does not feature in the top five. In the 2017-18 academic year, about 1.58 lakh students enrolled in UG and PG courses in the engineering and technology domain in the state. Andhra Pradesh followed it with 1.01 lakh students. Maharashtra comes next with 1 lakh enrolments.  Half of all the engineering seats in India are located in the five southern states namely Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Kerala. Rest of the seats are fairly well-distributed across the country.     But the all-India capacity utilisation is as low as 49.2%. While the approved engineering seats in 2017-18 was 16.6 lakh, the number of students who enrolled was 8.18 lakh. This indicates the supply of engineering seats exceeds the demand for the same.  In 2013-14, enrolment was 59% of total capacity. States with the lower number of seats have reported higher enrolment percentages while the states with larger capacity have reported lower percentage of enrolment in engineering, with Karnataka being an exception.  The enrolment percentage in Tamil Nadu, which had 3.02 lakh engineering seats in 2017-18, was just 53% while Karnataka's was 65%. Delhi with about 10,700 seats had an enrolment ratio of 79%. Overall, the number of students who found placement at the end of the academic year was 3.45 lakh or about 42% of the total number of students who enrolled in engineering. This is an increase from 29% of students placed in 2013-14. Now comes the most crucial factor: the employability. A NASSCOM survey in 2019 had revealed that out of about 15 lakh engineering graduates which India churns out every year, only 2.5 lakh land jobs. The National Employability Report for Engineers 2019 by SHL shows that employability of engineers in IT services companies is just 16.25% and 3.4% for IT products. It goes as high as 39% for non-tech roles like ITeS/BPO associate.  This report was based on a sample of more than 170,000 engineering students from 750+ engineering colleges across multiple Indian states. The report indicates that students from Bihar, Jharkhand, Delhi, Haryana and West Bengal have the highest employability in IT services roles. Odisha, Telangana, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh form the next tier in employability. Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Punjab and Rajasthan fell in the third category. Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra were in the bottom 25 percentile bin.  States with the highest number of colleges showed the lowest percent employability.

The Central government has extended its free foodgrain scheme for another three months, till December. Started in April 2020, when the country first came in the grip of Covid-19 pandemic, Prime Minister Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana helped crores tide over the crisis. Some had lost their jobs, others were not earning enough to feed the family. Now, over two years later, when the pandemic has waned and the economy has opened, do we still need this scheme? And will this additional outlay increase the fiscal pressure?  The country's two most backward states -- UP and Bihar -- which get the maximum quota of the food grain scheme, also send out a large number of engineering graduates to IITs and other colleges. The contrast tells a lot about their education system. Other parts of the country are no better. Hundreds of engineering colleges churn out over 15 lakh techies every year. But, just over 2 lakh land jobs. We find out more about these colleges and looks at why employability of engineers is so low. A recent report said that startups are paying more to engineers than the big techs. But the global slowdown is forcing the startups to do a reality check. It is also forcing banks to act tough. The US Federal Reserve's aggressive monetary tightening policy has spelt more trouble for the crypto markets too. While analysts in June had anticipated mild recovery in the second half of FY23, the crypto investors continue to bleed. What is the road ahead for the crypto markets, as global central banks affirm to higher interest rates? After the markets, let us step into the corridors of the Supreme Court. On Thursday, it ruled that all women, irrespective of their marital status, are entitled to legal abortion as permitted under Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) rules. The verdict has addressed some grey areas in legal abortion in India vis-à-vis unmarried women. This episode of the podcast tells more about it.

Indian Predator recounts the investigation into Chandrakant Jha, one of the most gruesome serial killers in the country's history. He was convicted in 2013 for three gruesome killings between 2003 and 2007. The case's popularity has diminished over the years, and this also doesn't favour the makers. A lot of time hadn't passed since the Burari incident, and hence it had the advantage of being popular in the public consciousness.Right at the beginning, we get a glimpse into the mood that the documentary is going for with a rudimentary montage of higher authorities giving bits and pieces of information about a killer. Minutes into the opening monologue, we see a top cop say the humdrum true-crime cliche, "I have never come across a case like this in 23 years."The wonderful title design that we then get gives some hope, even reminding one of a Hannibal Lecter-like figure, but the first episode hardly breaks out of the cliche.On October 20, 2006, a mysterious caller informs the Delhi police that he has left a corpse near the Gate 3 entrance of the Tihar Jail. The cops find a mutilated body of a middle-aged man, neatly packed and kept inside a fruit basket.The story eventually unravels into one of the most shocking investigations. Chandrakant, a seemingly-normal migrant worker from Bihar is found to be the killer. How the Delhi police nabbed him seems straightforward as well. But what truly grips us is how the investigation moves, unravelling gruesome truths about a broken man with a shockingly-dark past.The material in hand is potent, but director Ayesha Sood hardly scratches the story beyond the surface. While experts keep track of the investigations, we are repeatedly shown blood-splattering recreations of the gruesome murders. The actor who plays Chandrakant even looks the part, but he hardly has anything to do, other than appear randomly and bludgeon men to death. Beyond a point, it gets too monotonous and even becomes a disturbance to the narrative at times.The second and third episodes do get better, especially when the investigation goes back to his roots, unravelling the other alleged crimes of the killer. The portions set in Bihar, particularly, give us a deeper understanding of the killer's psyche. Even here, it is disappointing that we never get to see an actual mental health professional speak about what made Chandrakant who he is. We instead get expert opinions from police officials and a forensic investigator, who beat around the same bush for quite some time.The show tries to speak about the social-economic factors that played a role in Chandrakant's life, but the exploration seems shallow and unconvincing. Unlike many other true-crime accounts, both the killer and the victims here hail from the poorest sections of society. Most victims are destitute and lured in with the promise of food, shelter, or companionship. This could have been an opportunity to explore the importance of mental health awareness among the lower economic sections when mental health issues are ironically trivialised as belonging to the upper sections.Further, Indian Predator also clearly stays away from Chandrakant's accusations of police brutality. We keep hearing about how his taunts at the police were all attempts to challenge the system, and are informed that this anger stems from his misfortune with dominant figures in his life like his mother. But none of the officials who Chandrakant mentions are questioned.The series could have been an enthralling documentary had it pushed the envelope more. It certainly does have its moments, but milking the shock value of a criminal case only gets you so far. ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

Folk performances reflect the life-worlds of a vast section of subaltern communities in India. What is the philosophy that drives these performances, the vision that enables as well as enslaves these communities to present what they feel, think, imagine, and want to see? Can such performances challenge social hierarchies and ensure justice in a caste-ridden society? In Cultural Labour: Conceptualizing the 'Folk Performance' in India (Oxford UP, 2019), Brahma Prakash studies bhuiyan puja (landworship), bidesia (theatre of migrant labourers), Reshma-Chuharmal (Dalit ballads), dugola (singing duels) from Bihar, and the songs and performances of Gaddar, who was associated with Jana Natya Mandali, Telangana: he examines various ways in which meanings and behaviour are engendered in communities through rituals, theatre, and enactments. Focusing on various motifs of landscape, materiality, and performance, the author looks at the relationship between culture and labour in its immediate contexts. Based on an extensive ethnography and the author's own life experience as a member of such a community, the book offers a new conceptual framework to understand the politics and aesthetics of folk performance in the light of contemporary theories of theatre and performance studies.

Lower paddy acreage: How will it affect India and the world?

Following Russia's invasion of Ukraine and amid challenges for global food supply, PM Narendra Modi declared that India was capable of "feeding the world". However, instead of feeding the world, the govt soon restricted wheat exports, citing a threat to food security. Now, there are concerns about the outlook of rice production going forward. The area planted under the rice crop in the country is down this year. In the week ended August 18, paddy acreage in the country was down 8.25 per cent over the same period last year. Paddy is the most important crop during the Kharif season, and over 80 per cent of India's total rice production is done during this season. The lower paddy acreage is attributed to the erratic monsoon. Rice cultivation usually requires large amounts of water, and farmers in states without adequate irrigation facilities depend heavily on the monsoon. According to the IMD, rainfall is deficient in major rice-producing states This is reflected in the shrinking paddy acreage in these states. It is down by almost 340,000 hectares in Bihar, 1.14 million hectares in Jharkhand, 630,000 hectares in West Bengal, and 270,000 hectares in Uttar Pradesh. In the previous season, India produced over 111 million tonnes of rice. According to a report by the US department of agriculture, India's rice production is estimated to decline by 0.9% to 128.5 million tonnes for the full 2022-23 crop year. This could be the first drop in rice output since 2015-16. For the 2021-22 crop year, India's rice production was at a record 130.2 million. So, what are the implications of lower rice production in India? The decline in rice output could also hit exports and affect global supply dynamics. India is the largest exporter of rice and accounts for 40% of the global rice trade, supplying rice to over 100 countries. Lower rice production in India could have implications for food inflation in rice-importing countries. Major customers are India's neighbours, including Bangladesh, China, Nepal and some other middle eastern nations. India exported 21.2 million tonnes of rice in 2021-22, of which 3.94 million tonnes was the basmati variety.

Rice traders earlier hoped to cash in on the drop in rice crop yields and high production costs in Thailand and Vietnam, but the lag in paddy acreage in the country has been a letdown. [Byte of Mahendra Dev, Director and VC, IGIDR] Besides the impact on exports, lower rice production also has implications for India's domestic market. However, unlike wheat, the Central pool of rice stock is at 47 million tonnes as against a buffer norm of just over 13 million tonnes. This also includes the rice yet to be received from millers by the Food Corporation of India. Given the current scenario of wheat and paddy, it will also be interesting to see whether the government will extend the free food grain scheme beyond September 30. As the peak paddy sowing season is over, the outlook still looks bleak. If prices continue to soar, export restrictions cannot be ruled out. But experts say the curbs, if imposed, should not be drastic like outright bans and could be in the form of higher tariffs and minimum export prices.

Inner Sound Meditation is A Required Course, Not An Elective One, in Sant Mat

Thanks to the innovations of Guru Arjan Dev, Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar, Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras, and Soamiji Maharaj of Agra, the Path of Initiation into Inner Light and Sound Meditation (Surat Shabd Yoga) has gradually become progressively more and more available to an ever-growing percentage of humanity. "Satsang shall spread far and wide in future." (Last Words of Soamiji Maharaj) "After Swami Ji Maharaj, the floodgates of initiation opened up and many people would be able to get the initiation." (Baba Ram Singh) And the Sant Mat spiritual classic and scripture known as the Anurag Sagar (Kabir's Ocean of Love) predicts that as this Kali Yuga age continues to unfold, the Path of the Masters will be far more well-known and followed than it is at present. But at every step and in each generation of time, Masters have had to intervene and reboot the Path whenever it begins to go off course, "falls into the mouth of Kal", the negative power, the gnostic demiurge or false god, in other words, eaten by illusion. Soamiji Maharaj of Agra once said of spiritual paths: "Without Bhakti [love], they are all hollow and sham, outer husks without a kernel." It is the inner "kernel" or "seed" of Life we're really after, not developing attachments to institutions or organizations, or going through the motions of holidays, traditions, and rituals, well within the confines of the grinding wheel of transmigration.    "I will make the souls firm in the Shabda of the Gracious Forgiver, Sat Purush. Such souls will be Sahaj [on a natural path]: pure and content. They will do the devotion of the soul, and they will be the abode of pure qualities. By doing the Simran of Sat Purush they will sing the praise of the Immovable Naam. I will send the souls to Sat Lok... Spreading the Nectar of Naam I will awaken the souls. O Dharam Rai [negative power], listen carefully. I will humble your arrogance. By doing the practice of devotion, they will get the passport and I will connect them with the Naam of Sat Purush. The Negative Power can't come near such a soul, and he will bow down to them when he sees their union with Sat Purush." (Anurag Sagar, Kabir's Ocean of Love)     In Divine Light and Sound, Sat Naam Saheb, James Bean https://www.SpiritualAwakeningRadio.com
