78: Rich world view, poor Adivasi: Status of Adivasi Livelihoods Report: Dibyendu Chaudhuri and Parijat Ghosh, PRADAN

Shownotes “I would say that this report presents a contradictory picture, which is probably a feature of this report. And this contradiction is about rich Adivasi and poor Adivasi. Rich Adivasi in terms of their world view and cultural practices, but poor Adivasi in terms of the deprivation”  The 78th episode of The Elephant in the Room podcast, is a follow up episode, on the first ‘Status of Adivasi Livelihoods' (SAL) Report by PRADAN. The report based on a survey of around 5000 households from across 16 Adivasi dominated districts of Jharkhand and Odisha, paints a grim picture of Adivasis as one of the most deprived sections of Indian society.  India has several laws and constitutional provisions that recognise the rights of indigenous peoples to land and self-government. The Indian Constitution also provides for positive discrimination in employment, higher education and political representation in the Indian parliament and state assemblies. However, these positive discrimination efforts do not seem to have worked.  The big question is WHY? Who is measuring the impact of development programmes and interventions? Adivasi leaders, activists and academics believe this is because policy makers do not recognise them as different, which in turn does not allow them to define and design their own development agenda.  The main purpose of the Status of Adivasi Livelihoods report is to develop a more nuanced understanding of Adivasi livelihoods and the socio-cultural setting that shape these livelihoods, in order to evolve a better response to improve their plight. As we navigate a deeply divided world on the cusp of climate crisis, it would make sense to learn from the deep knowledge and wisdom of the Adivasis who are not a part of caste society. Adivasis possess a worldview which is different from the non-Adivasis. They do not consider themselves superior to other creatures of nature and do not believe in the accumulation of wealth and exploitation of nature for human purposes. This worldview shapes their relationship with nature and society and influences their practices including livelihoods. “Programmes and schemes for tribal communities need to align with their values of togetherness, living in harmony with nature and non-exploitative livelihood practices. That is the only way to ensure the challenges being faced by the Adivasis are addressed without compromising the Adivasi way of living.” Listen here

Non-timber forest produce (NTFP) are an important source of livelihood for India's forest dwelling communities. The collection and trade of these produce is regulated by a number of different national level schemes and policies, implemented variously by different states. At the same time, the Community Forest Resource Rights (CFRR) provision of the Forest Rights Act (FRA) holds great potential for empowering communities to carry out ecologically and financially sustainable NTFP harvesting and trade. In this episode, Rohan Pai talks to Ananya Rao about her experiences from Chhattisgarh around NTFP policies in action and the benefits of integrating NTFP trade with CFRR-based governance.Ananya Rao is a researcher at Ashoka Trust for Ecology and the Environment (ATREE). For the past year, she has been working on the implementation of CFRR in Chattisgarh's Bastar District.Suggested Readings:1.

  Introduction: 6 दिन पहले Supreme Court ने केंद्र को राजद्रोह कानून के अंदर आने वाले सभी cases को थामने के लिए कहा। जितने भी trials, proceedings, सुनवाई Indian Penal Code (IPC) की धारा Section 124A के तहत होनी थी, उन सभी को रोकने के आदेश दिए जब तक केंद्र अपना वादा नहीं निभा लेता। कौन सा वादा? IPC की 124A पर पुनर्विचार करने का वादा और उसमें ज़रूरी बदलाव करने का वादा। मगर ये कब हुआ, क्यों Supreme Court चाहता है Sedition के क़ानून में बदलाव, क्या होता है Sedition का कानून, क्या कहता है ये कानून और आख़िर क्यों अब तक केंद्र नहीं निभा पाया बदलाव लाने का वादा, इन सभी पेचीदा सवालों के जवाब जानेंगे इस FYI में  Body: नमस्कार,आदाब, सत्श्रीअकाल, मैं वही पुरानी होस्ट Sahiba Khan और आप सुन रहे हैं ज्ञान के भंडार वाला favourite podcast - FYI. आज थोड़ा दिल थाम कर बैठ जाएं क्योंकि आज बात होने जा रही है एक ऐसे कानून की जिसने दशकों से भारत में डर बरपाये रखा है, जो हमारा नहीं बल्कि अंग्रेज़ों को हमें दी गई सौगात थी जिसे वैसे तो हमें आज़ादी के समय ही हटा देना चाहिए था मगर कुछ कारणों से नहीं हटाया। आज हम बात करेंगे IPC की धारा 124A यानी कि Sedition law की - बोले तो राजद्रोह कानून। अब इसी कानून में SC ने बदलाव करने को कहा है और आपको बताती चलूँ कि जो BJP सरकार इस कानून की सरपरस्त हुआ करती थी और इसी कानून के तहत कई लोगों को जेल में भी डाला, उसी कानून पर कोर्ट की फटकार के बाद कहा है कि वो इसमें बदलाव सुझाएंगे , मगर कुछ दिनों में।   मगर सबसे पहले आ जाते हैं कि ये Sedition Law होता क्या है? IPC की धारा 124A कहती है कि - “Whoever, by words, either spoken or written, or by signs, or by visible representation, or otherwise, brings or attempts to bring into hatred or contempt, or excites or attempts to excite disaffection towards, the Government estab­lished by law shall be punished with im­prisonment for life, to which fine may be added…” हिंदी में समझेंगे अब -  "जो कोई भी, शब्दों द्वारा, या तो बोले गए या लिखित, या संकेतों द्वारा, या साक्षात दिख रहे प्रतिनिधित्व द्वारा, घृणा यी कि नफ़रतें फैलाने का या अवमानना माने बात न सुनन, ये काम करता है, या सामने वाले को provoke यानी कि उत्तेजित करता है या कानून द्वारा स्थापित सरकार के प्रति लोगों में असंतोष पैदा करने की कोशिश करता है, उसे दंडित किया जाएगा। आजीवन कारावास से, जिसमें जुर्माना जोड़ा जा सकता है…”   तो ये हैं देशद्रोह कानून के शब्द, संविधान के अनुसार। इस प्रावधान में 3 और explanations जोड़े गए हैं: Disaffection शब्द जो असल कानून में इस्तेमाल किया गया है उसमें disloyalty यानी कि गद्दारी और दुश्मनी में शामिल होगा दूसरा, गर किसी ने कुछ ऐसा कहा है जो सरकार की नीतियों या उनके प्रयासों की निंदा करता है, इस उद्देश्य से कि वो कानून या फिर वो नीति दूसरों के हित के लिए कानून के दायरे में रहकर बदली जा सके, बगैर नफरत या असंतोष फैलाये, तो वो भी इस कानून की श्रेणी में नहीं आएगा। और तीसरा और आखिरी विवरण है कि अगर किसी ने सरकार के खिलाफ अपना रोष जताया या असंतोष जताया, नफरत फैलाये बिना या फिर किसी को उत्तेजित किये बिना, तो उसे भी इस कानून से बाहर रखा जाएगा।  मगर ये कानून आखिर आया कहां से? चलिए इसके इतिहास में थोड़े गोते लगाते हैं  ये कानून Thomas Macaulay नाम के अंग्रेज़ के दिमाग की उपज था। उसी ने Indian Penal Code भी बनाया था जिसके अंदर ये धारा आती है। 1860 जब ये IPC लगाया गया, तब किसी भूल-चूंक से देशद्रोह वाली धारा उसमें लगाना भूल गए। मगर 1890 में Special Act XVII (17) लगा कर इसे IPC की धारा 124A के तहत add कर दिया गया।  इसमें आपको उम्र क़ैद की सज़ा हो सकती थी इसे अंग्रेज़ों ने लगाया था ताकि उनके खिलाफ जो बग़ावत हो रही है उस पर काबू पाया जा सके। आपको शायद जानकर ताज्जुब होगा कि हमारे सबसे बेहतरीन freedom fighters जैसे Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Annie Besant, Shaukat and Mohammad Ali, Maulana Azad और Mahatma Gandhi, इन सभी को देशद्रोह कानून के तहत सज़ा सुनाई गई थी।  1898 में Queen Empress v. Bal Gangadhar Tilak के केस की सुनवाई हुई थी जो काफी मशहूर रही और इतिहास के पन्नों में जिसका नाम दर्ज कराया गया।    उसके बाद आज़ाद भारत में भी ये कानून रहा और कई बार सरकारों ने इस क़ानून का गलत इस्तेमाल किया उन लोगों को जेल में पहुंचाने के लिए जो सरकार या उसकी नीतियों की निंदा करते थे। कई बार अदालतों ने इस कानून के तहत बदलाव लाने की बातें कहीं और ये भी कई बार अपने बयानों में बोला कि केवल सरकार या उसकी नीतियों की निंदा करना इस कानून के तहत नहीं आता। कभी Supreme Court ने Romesh Thapar v State of Madras में यही बात कही तो कहीं Punjab and Haryana High Court ने Tara Singh Gopi Chand v. The State (1951) में यही दोहराया। यहाँ तक कि Ram Nandan v. State of Uttar Pradesh (1959) के केस में इलाहाबाद हाई कोर्ट ने ये तक कह दिया कि आईपीसी की धारा 124ए मुख्य रूप से अंग्रेज़ों के लिए देश में असंतोष और dissent यानी कि असहमति को दबाने का एक उपकरण एक टूल थी, और फिर अदालत ने इस प्रावधान को असंवैधानिक घोषित किया। हालांकि 1962 में Supreme Court ने Kedarnath Singh v State of Bihar के केस में इस धारा के तहत सजा सुनाई मगर साथ ही साथ सरकारों को ये भी कहा कि वो इसका दुरुपयोग करने से बचें। अदालत ने ज़ोर दिया कि हर भाषण या comment जो सरकार की निंदा करता हो या फिर अपना असंतोष बयान करता हो वो देशद्रोह नहीं हो सकता जब तक उस बयान ने अफरा-तफरी न मच रही हो या फिर कानून व्यवस्था में कोई दिक्कत ना आ रही हो। मतलब Public law and order maintain रहे बस। आपको बताती चलूँ कि ये public order की बात कानून में कहीं लिखी नहीं गई है मगर कई बार अदालतों ने ये कहा है इसलिए अब ये एक norm बन गया है कि अगर ऐसा हो रहा हो तब ही आप किसी बयान को देशद्रोह में count करें। और इसी केस के बाद से public order एक बहुत बड़ा शब्द बन गया आगे इस कानून के तहत आने वाले cases में। Balwant Singh v. State of Punjab (1995) के केस में कहा गया कि किसी भी बयान को sedition या देशद्रोह मान लेने से पहले सही से आंकना चाहिए कि लोग ये क्यों कह रहे हैं।    Dr. Vinayak Binayak Sen v. State of Chhattisgarh (2011) के फैसले में ये कहा गया कि भले ही आपने वो स्पीच या वो बयान नहीं लिखा हो मगर अगर आप उस बयान को circulate करते पकड़े जाते हैं  देशद्रोह का मुक़दमा लगेगा।    भारत के law commission और यहां तक ​​कि Supreme Court  की लगातार रिपोर्टों ने राजद्रोह कानून के बड़े पैमाने पर दुरुपयोग पर ज़ोर दिया है।Kedar Nath वाले मामले में  तो पुलिस पर आरोप लगा कि वो पहले देखें कि जिस बयान की वजह से वो IPC की धारा 124A लगा रहे हैं वो सही में इसके अंतर्गत आता भी है या नहीं।  पिछले साल की ही बात है - Vinod Dua v Union of India का केस देख लें। दिवंगत पत्रकार Vinod Dua पर देशद्रोह कानून के अंतर्गत आरोप लगा कि उन्होंने आख़िर कैसे प्रधानमंत्री Narendra Modi के खिलाफ ये बोला कि उन्होंने Covid-19 महामारी को भारत में सही से नहीं संभाला। हालांकि अदालत ने उनके खिलाफ सभी FIR रद्द कर दी थीं और कहा था कि ऐसा कोई भी केस उनके खिलाफ नहीं बनता।     तो इस कानून की अब क्या स्थिति है ?   Kishorechandra Wangkhemcha, Kanhaiya Lal Shukla जैसे कई और पत्रकारों ने और Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra ने इस कानून के खिलाफ याचिकाएं दायर की इसमें 7 -judge बेंच ये फैसला लेगी कि क्या Kedar Nath केस में जो observations किये गए थे वो सही थे या नहीं, क्या उस केस में सही तरीके से सुनवाई ली गई थी, फैसला हुआ था या नहीं।  हालांकि सरकार ने पहले तो कहा कि कुछ cases में इस कानून का दुरुपयोग का मतलब ये नहीं कि इस कानून को ही हटा दिया जाये। मगर फिर केंद्र भी इस पर राज़ी हो गया कि colonial क़ानून पर सलाह-मश्वरा उन्हें मंज़ूर है।    Conclusion: अदालत का हस्तक्षेप इस केस में बहुत ज़रूरी इसलिए है क्योंकि अगर अदालत इस प्रावधान को रद्द करता है, तो उसे Kedar Nath वाले फैसले को रद्द करना होगा और पहले के फैसलों को बरकरार रखना होगा जहाँ freedom of speech को तवज्जो दी गई थी हालाँकि, अगर सरकार कानून पर सोच-विचार करने का निर्णय लेती है, तो होगा ये कि या तो भाषा को तोड़-मरोड़ कर बात वही हो जाएगी और प्रावधान को दोबारा नए सिरे से सोचने का पॉइन्ट ही नहीं रहेगा। अब देखना ये होगा कि ये सोच-विचार, परामर्श इस कानून को कहाँ तक लेकर जाती हैं।  क्या अदालत कानून ही रद्द कर देगी या फिर सरकार को मौक़ा देगी इसे दोबारा बेहतर तरीके से फ्रेम करने का। हम आपको बताते रहेंगे। हमें बताएं कि आपको क्या लगता है - आज़ाद भारत में कितना ज़रूरी है ऐसा अंग्रेज़ों द्वारा बनाया गया कानून। हमें बताएं ABP Live Podcasts के twitter handle पर। फिलहाल मैं चलती हूँ। मैं हूँ Sahiba Khan, podcast की sound-designing की है ललित ने और आप सुन रहे हैं ABP Live Podcasts की पेशकश FYI.

IPC की 124A पर पुनर्विचार करने का वादा और उसमें ज़रूरी बदलाव करने का वादा। मगर ये कब हुआ, क्यों Supreme Court चाहता है Sedition के क़ानून में बदलाव, क्या होता है Sedition का कानून, क्या कहता है ये कानून और आख़िर क्यों अब तक केंद्र नहीं निभा पाया बदलाव लाने का वादा, इन सभी पेचीदा सवालों के जवाब जानेंगे इस FYI में  Body: नमस्कार,आदाब, सत्श्रीअकाल, मैं वही पुरानी होस्ट Sahiba Khan और आप सुन रहे हैं ज्ञान के भंडार वाला favourite podcast - FYI. आज थोड़ा दिल थाम कर बैठ जाएं क्योंकि आज बात होने जा रही है एक ऐसे कानून की जिसने दशकों से भारत में डर बरपाये रखा है, जो हमारा नहीं बल्कि अंग्रेज़ों को हमें दी गई सौगात थी जिसे वैसे तो हमें आज़ादी के समय ही हटा देना चाहिए था मगर कुछ कारणों से नहीं हटाया। आज हम बात करेंगे IPC की धारा 124A यानी कि Sedition law की - बोले तो राजद्रोह कानून। अब इसी कानून में SC ने बदलाव करने को कहा है और आपको बताती चलूँ कि जो BJP सरकार इस कानून की सरपरस्त हुआ करती थी और इसी कानून के तहत कई लोगों को जेल में भी डाला, उसी कानून पर कोर्ट की फटकार के बाद कहा है कि वो इसमें बदलाव सुझाएंगे , मगर कुछ दिनों में।   मगर सबसे पहले आ जाते हैं कि ये Sedition Law होता क्या है? IPC की धारा 124A कहती है कि - “Whoever, by words, either spoken or written, or by signs, or by visible representation, or otherwise, brings or attempts to bring into hatred or contempt, or excites or attempts to excite disaffection towards, the Government estab­lished by law shall be punished with im­prisonment for life, to which fine may be added…” हिंदी में समझेंगे अब -  "जो कोई भी, शब्दों द्वारा, या तो बोले गए या लिखित, या संकेतों द्वारा, या साक्षात दिख रहे प्रतिनिधित्व द्वारा, घृणा यी कि नफ़रतें फैलाने का या अवमानना माने बात न सुनन, ये काम करता है, या सामने वाले को provoke यानी कि उत्तेजित करता है या कानून द्वारा स्थापित सरकार के प्रति लोगों में असंतोष पैदा करने की कोशिश करता है, उसे दंडित किया जाएगा। आजीवन कारावास से, जिसमें जुर्माना जोड़ा जा सकता है…”   तो ये हैं देशद्रोह कानून के शब्द, संविधान के अनुसार। इस प्रावधान में 3 और explanations जोड़े गए हैं: Disaffection शब्द जो असल कानून में इस्तेमाल किया गया है उसमें disloyalty यानी कि गद्दारी और दुश्मनी में शामिल होगा दूसरा, गर किसी ने कुछ ऐसा कहा है जो सरकार की नीतियों या उनके प्रयासों की निंदा करता है, इस उद्देश्य से कि वो कानून या फिर वो नीति दूसरों के हित के लिए कानून के दायरे में रहकर बदली जा सके, बगैर नफरत या असंतोष फैलाये, तो वो भी इस कानून की श्रेणी में नहीं आएगा। और तीसरा और आखिरी विवरण है कि अगर किसी ने सरकार के खिलाफ अपना रोष जताया या असंतोष जताया, नफरत फैलाये बिना या फिर किसी को उत्तेजित किये बिना, तो उसे भी इस कानून से बाहर रखा जाएगा।  मगर ये कानून आखिर आया कहां से? चलिए इसके इतिहास में थोड़े गोते लगाते हैं  ये कानून Thomas Macaulay नाम के अंग्रेज़ के दिमाग की उपज था। उसी ने Indian Penal Code भी बनाया था जिसके अंदर ये धारा आती है। 1860 जब ये IPC लगाया गया, तब किसी भूल-चूंक से देशद्रोह वाली धारा उसमें लगाना भूल गए। मगर 1890 में Special Act XVII (17) लगा कर इसे IPC की धारा 124A के तहत add कर दिया गया।  इसमें आपको उम्र क़ैद की सज़ा हो सकती थी इसे अंग्रेज़ों ने लगाया था ताकि उनके खिलाफ जो बग़ावत हो रही है उस पर काबू पाया जा सके। आपको शायद जानकर ताज्जुब होगा कि हमारे सबसे बेहतरीन freedom fighters जैसे Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Annie Besant, Shaukat and Mohammad Ali, Maulana Azad और Mahatma Gandhi, इन सभी को देशद्रोह कानून के तहत सज़ा सुनाई गई थी।  1898 में Queen Empress v. Bal Gangadhar Tilak के केस की सुनवाई हुई थी जो काफी मशहूर रही और इतिहास के पन्नों में जिसका नाम दर्ज कराया गया।    उसके बाद आज़ाद भारत में भी ये कानून रहा और कई बार सरकारों ने इस क़ानून का गलत इस्तेमाल किया उन लोगों को जेल में पहुंचाने के लिए जो सरकार या उसकी नीतियों की निंदा करते थे। कई बार अदालतों ने इस कानून के तहत बदलाव लाने की बातें कहीं और ये भी कई बार अपने बयानों में बोला कि केवल सरकार या उसकी नीतियों की निंदा करना इस कानून के तहत नहीं आता। कभी Supreme Court ने Romesh Thapar v State of Madras में यही बात कही तो कहीं Punjab and Haryana High Court ने Tara Singh Gopi Chand v. The State (1951) में यही दोहराया। यहाँ तक कि Ram Nandan v. State of Uttar Pradesh (1959) के केस में इलाहाबाद हाई कोर्ट ने ये तक कह दिया कि आईपीसी की धारा 124ए मुख्य रूप से अंग्रेज़ों के लिए देश में असंतोष और dissent यानी कि असहमति को दबाने का एक उपकरण एक टूल थी, और फिर अदालत ने इस प्रावधान को असंवैधानिक घोषित किया। हालांकि 1962 में Supreme Court ने Kedarnath Singh v State of Bihar के केस में इस धारा के तहत सजा सुनाई मगर साथ ही साथ सरकारों को ये भी कहा कि वो इसका दुरुपयोग करने से बचें। अदालत ने ज़ोर दिया कि हर भाषण या comment जो सरकार की निंदा करता हो या फिर अपना असंतोष बयान करता हो वो देशद्रोह नहीं हो सकता जब तक उस बयान ने अफरा-तफरी न मच रही हो या फिर कानून व्यवस्था में कोई दिक्कत ना आ रही हो। मतलब Public law and order maintain रहे बस। आपको बताती चलूँ कि ये public order की बात कानून में कहीं लिखी नहीं गई है मगर कई बार अदालतों ने ये कहा है इसलिए अब ये एक norm बन गया है कि अगर ऐसा हो रहा हो तब ही आप किसी बयान को देशद्रोह में count करें। और इसी केस के बाद से public order एक बहुत बड़ा शब्द बन गया आगे इस कानून के तहत आने वाले cases में। Balwant Singh v. State of Punjab (1995) के केस में कहा गया कि किसी भी बयान को sedition या देशद्रोह मान लेने से पहले सही से आंकना चाहिए कि लोग ये क्यों कह रहे हैं।    Dr. Vinayak Binayak Sen v. State of Chhattisgarh (2011) के फैसले में ये कहा गया कि भले ही आपने वो स्पीच या वो बयान नहीं लिखा हो मगर अगर आप उस बयान को circulate करते पकड़े जाते हैं  देशद्रोह का मुक़दमा लगेगा।    भारत के law commission और यहां तक ​​कि Supreme Court  की लगातार रिपोर्टों ने राजद्रोह कानून के बड़े पैमाने पर दुरुपयोग पर ज़ोर दिया है।Kedar Nath वाले मामले में  तो पुलिस पर आरोप लगा कि वो पहले देखें कि जिस बयान की वजह से वो IPC की धारा 124A लगा रहे हैं वो सही में इसके अंतर्गत आता भी है या नहीं।  पिछले साल की ही बात है - Vinod Dua v Union of India का केस देख लें। दिवंगत पत्रकार Vinod Dua पर देशद्रोह कानून के अंतर्गत आरोप लगा कि उन्होंने आख़िर कैसे प्रधानमंत्री Narendra Modi के खिलाफ ये बोला कि उन्होंने Covid-19 महामारी को भारत में सही से नहीं संभाला। हालांकि अदालत ने उनके खिलाफ सभी FIR रद्द कर दी थीं और कहा था कि ऐसा कोई भी केस उनके खिलाफ नहीं बनता।     तो इस कानून की अब क्या स्थिति है ?   Kishorechandra Wangkhemcha, Kanhaiya Lal Shukla जैसे कई और पत्रकारों ने और Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra ने इस कानून के खिलाफ याचिकाएं दायर की इसमें 7 -judge बेंच ये फैसला लेगी कि क्या Kedar Nath केस में जो observations किये गए थे वो सही थे या नहीं, क्या उस केस में सही तरीके से सुनवाई ली गई थी, फैसला हुआ था या नहीं।  हालांकि सरकार ने पहले तो कहा कि कुछ cases में इस कानून का दुरुपयोग का मतलब ये नहीं कि इस कानून को ही हटा दिया जाये। मगर फिर केंद्र भी इस पर राज़ी हो गया कि colonial क़ानून पर सलाह-मश्वरा उन्हें मंज़ूर है।    Conclusion: अदालत का हस्तक्षेप इस केस में बहुत ज़रूरी इसलिए है क्योंकि अगर अदालत इस प्रावधान को रद्द करता है, तो उसे Kedar Nath वाले फैसले को रद्द करना होगा और पहले के फैसलों को बरकरार रखना होगा जहाँ freedom of speech को तवज्जो दी गई थी हालाँकि, अगर सरकार कानून पर सोच-विचार करने का निर्णय लेती है, तो होगा ये कि या तो भाषा को तोड़-मरोड़ कर बात वही हो जाएगी और प्रावधान को दोबारा नए सिरे से सोचने का पॉइन्ट ही नहीं रहेगा। अब देखना ये होगा कि ये सोच-विचार, परामर्श इस कानून को कहाँ तक लेकर जाती हैं।  क्या अदालत कानून ही रद्द कर देगी या फिर सरकार को मौक़ा देगी इसे दोबारा बेहतर तरीके से फ्रेम करने का। हम आपको बताते रहेंगे। हमें बताएं कि आपको क्या लगता है - आज़ाद भारत में कितना ज़रूरी है ऐसा अंग्रेज़ों द्वारा बनाया गया कानून। हमें बताएं ABP Live Podcasts के twitter handle पर। फिलहाल मैं चलती हूँ। मैं हूँ Sahiba Khan, podcast की sound-designing की है ललित ने और आप सुन रहे हैं ABP Live Podcasts की पेशकश FYI.

If you, like me, have caught yourself multiple times a day complaining about how this year is hotter than the last, you are not alone. March 2022 has been India's third warmest March since 1901 and there have been at least 26 heat waves since the start of March, which can last for anywhere between 4-10 days.  On 11 April, Delhi broke a 72-year-old record with the temperature hitting 42.6 degrees Celsius. And the absence of summer rains, which usually keeps a check on the heat, has also made the heat worse. While climate change is one of the main reasons why it is so hot, what has made it even more frustrating is the constant power cuts which are occurring across the country. As per the power ministry's own data, 14 out of 36 states and union territories are currently facing a power shortage.  And there are multiple reasons behind this power crunch, with the most obvious one being record-high power demands in this scorching heat.  As the country witnesses a revival of the economy due to declining COVID cases, businesses have started operating at full capacity, adding to the power requirement.  But the big reason behind the power cuts is the shortage of coal in India. Barely six months ago in October 2021, we saw a similar crisis, with several states facing electricity outages due to prolonged monsoon. But why is India witnessing a power crunch again in the summers? What is leading to this constant power outage? And what is causing this heat? To understand this, we spoke to Sudiep Shrivastava, Chhattisgarh-based lawyer and activist; Sanjay Vashisht, Director, Climate Action Network South Asia; and Dr Narendra Taneja, a leading energy expert.

While tattoos might be the mainstay of hipsters and rock stars in today's world, in India, the tradition extends over hundreds of years. For Mumbai-based tattoo artist Shomil Shah, the affinity for this art form is literally etched in his DNA. His great-grandmother from Kutch, Gujarat, had unique dotted tattoos on her hands and neck known as “trajva”. These markings are commonly found on people belonging to the Mer/Maher or Rabadi tribes of Gujarat or Rajasthan and were used in lieu of jewellery for those who couldn't afford any. Three generations later, Shah has taken on the onus of creating a “visual archive of the tattoo traditions indigenous to the subcontinent” and celebrating this fading art. Shah's journey to reconnect with his culture evolved into a showcase of the history of the country's ink. He travelled across different states of India like Maharashtra and Gujarat to uncover all the different tattoo traditions prevalent in the region. His first story featured 70-year-old Babli Bai, from Mumbai who got her first tattoo when she was 10 years old. Both her arms are covered with ‘godna' markings from Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and several other states. These godna markings are applied either as a rite of passage or as symbols of natural and spiritual elements that make up the tribe's cultural identity. Babli Bai's left arm had banana plants, a snake and a lotus motif while the fingers were dotted with many markings including a scorpion and a crescent moon. The other arm sported motifs of Lord Krishna's milkmaids and motifs of her and her husband's names. Her face sported a few dots as a way to ward off the evil eye. Soon enough stories started to roll in at a steady pace and the page kept growing. Alongside, people's inclination to study their region or tribe's tattoos increased and curious about these patterns, they even started replicating these motifs on their bodies.

Is legalising MSP a panacea for India's agri-troubles?

With the repeal of the three farm laws, farmer unions believe that they have won a battle of sorts. But, according to them, another one is waiting. And this one will drag a tad longer. They want a law to legalise the minimum support price for crops. In a bind, the government has formed a committee to look into the matter. Let us understand if legalising MSP will help farming in the long run.   MSP is the minimum floor price at which the government procures from farmers. It is calculated on the average cost of production. In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, farmer union coalition ‘Samyukta Kisan Morcha' has said that MSP based on 1.5 times the cost of production should be made a legal entitlement for all agricultural produce. Currently, MSP does not extend to fruits and vegetables.   The Centre notifies MSPs for 23 crops every year. But procurement largely happens only in wheat and paddy, since they are the primary foodgrains distributed under the public distribution system. An analysis by PRS Legislative shows that Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, and Haryana accounted for 85 per cent of wheat procurement in 2019-20, but the three states produce only 46 per cent of the country's wheat.   In case of paddy, six states – Punjab, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Haryana – which are responsible for 40 per cent of the production, have a 74 per cent combined share of procurement. A 2015 report by the Shantha Kumar Committee said that MSP benefits just six per cent of India's farmers. The MSP value of paddy and wheat procured during 2020-21 was Rs 2.53 trillion.   According to a national daily, the MSP value of the total production of the 23 crops was about Rs 12 trillion in 2020-21. But the value of production actually sold by the farmers, has been estimated at Rs nine trillion.   With MSP being already enforced on Rs 3.8 trillion worth of produce, providing a legal guarantee for the entire marketable surplus of the 23 MSP crops would cost an additional Rs 5 trillion to the government. Taking up such a costly expenditure could be fiscally disastrous. GV Ramanjaneyulu, executive director, Centre for Sustainable Agriculture recently told Down To Earth that a guaranteed MSP will kill Indian agriculture. He said it would also increase distortion in cropping patterns.    Experts are advocating for deficiency price payments as a more feasible alternative to MSP. Under this, the government would make direct payments to farmers. The amount which would be credited to the farmers' accounts would be the difference between the MSP and the selling price. However, not all experts are opposed to legalising MSP. Professor Sukhpal Singh of IIM Ahmedabad believes that with certain caveats, the government can legalise MSP, but not on the exact terms that the protesting farmers might want it to.  The Centre has assured that the MSP system is here to stay, but farmers are still sceptical. In a bid to assuage their concerns, PM Modi announced the formation of a committee to make the MSP regime more effective and transparent as well as suggest ways to promote zero-budget agriculture.

Dans le Chhattisgarh, qui compte pour 2% de la population mais 16% des réserves de charbon du pays, les habitants subissent les conséquences directes de l'appétit croissant des industriels pour les énergies fossiles. À perte de vue, la terre est éventrée. Au fond de la mine à ciel ouvert de Gare Palma, des engins s'activent pour extraire le précieux combustible. Nous sommes dans le district de Raigarh, où gisent des centaines de milliers de millions de tonnes de charbon. Leur exploitation impacte directement les locaux. « Ces dix dernières années, le nombre de malades que je reçois a beaucoup augmenté, témoigne le docteur ayurvédique Haria Patel À cause de la déforestation, l'air pur disparaît et la pollution augmente. Avec des fumées crachées par les industriels, la population attrape des problèmes pulmonaires, des problèmes de peau, des cancers même. » Des conséquences directes sur la santé des habitants Dans le village proche de Sarasmal, une étude portée en 2017 sur 341 habitants a montré que 87% d'entre eux étaient infectés par la pollution de l'air et des eaux. À 33 ans, Shivpal Bhagat est leur porte-parole. « Ma mère a des problèmes d'estomac, mon grand frère des problèmes de peau. D'autres ont des toux chroniques !

On ne reçoit aucune compensation pour cela.

Des groupes géants indiens tels que Jindal ou Adani raflent la mise. « Aujourd'hui, de nouvelles entreprises arrivent et prospectent, et on est très inquiets que l'activité augmente encore, confie Shivpal Bhagat. Si nous fournissons de l'électricité au reste de l'Inde, le reste de l'Inde devrait aussi s'intéresser à nous. Le pays doit savoir que si nous détruisons la jungle ici, cela va faire augmenter les températures partout. » L'Inde dépend en moyenne du charbon à 70% pour son électricité et la demande va croissante, au point que le pays traverse actuellement une pénurie de combustible. D'ici à 2040, la consommation d'énergie en Inde devrait encore doubler, selon l'Agence internationale de l'énergie. Les habitants du Chhattisgarh demandent à ne pas être sacrifiés pour les besoins du reste du pays.

Ep. 26: The ‘stunning’ reaction to #India’s horrendous #Wuhanvirus wave

The late Christopher Hitchens once wrote a book titled “The Ghoul of Calcutta”: it was about those profiting from deaths in that city. I looked up the term, and it means a monstrous being associated with graveyards and consuming human flesh. I was struck by how appropriate that term was when I saw the following tweet. Note the use of the term ‘stunning’. It implies that the pain of hundreds of families of the dead is a spectator sport for this woman, a former WaPo reporter in India. Isn’t that the very definition of ‘pandemic porn’?Can you condemn a person for the use of a single word? Yes, if it is consistent with a series of actions. Besides, remember how in ‘Z’, the greatest political thriller of all time, the single phrase “lithe and fierce like a tiger” was the smoking gun. It’s hard to give Gowen the benefit of the doubt as she was a repeat offender in her days in Delhi, as I pointed out in 2018. It is a pattern repeated by almost every foreign correspondent in India, as I said. My ‘favorites’ in this regard are Amy Kazmin of the FT and Max Rodenbeck of the Economist. Their outlets’ coverage of the recent Wuhavirus panic in India is illuminating. The crocodile tears don’t quite cover up the pure gloating: It is remarkable that all of the ‘seven districts’ that the FT reporter has allegedly studied (“collated local news reports”) are in BJP ruled-states, whereas the epidemic is considerably worse in Congress-ruled states. It seems to be an attempt to discredit the official numbers. And why only cremation numbers? Why not burial numbers as well? Can we say “selective cherry picking”?In this more detailed screenshot, see the districts, as well as the sources of data (yes, such neutral sources as scroll.in and NDTV). Why not Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Punjab, Chhattisgarh?The fact is that this coverage is essentially the same -- intended to distort, cause mass hysteria, and, presumably, lead to regime change -- as the #toolkit vendors’ tweets exposed in the following: there is obviously an agenda, and disinformation, and possibly taqiyya too. Swati Maliwal is an AAP politician:The breathlessly negative coverage of India contrasts with any number of earlier western articles that wondered why Indians were not dying like flies in the streets (while citizens of developed nations were) as in this image from New York of mass graves of unclaimed bodies a year ago. Nobody in India called these ‘stunning’, nor did we do that when 9/11 happened: we sympathized and empathized with the Americans then, but clearly, that’s not reciprocated.Now that Indians are in fact dying in droves, all’s well with the world according to these people. Vasudhaiva kudumbakam, it ain’t.Today, the world-famously liberal Biden-Harris administration in the US is withholding essential raw materials, which will prevent Indian vaccine maker Serum Institute from producing vaccines not only for India, but for the entire developing world: it is the largest producer globally, and has supplied 60 million Astra Zeneca doses around the world, much of which was donated by the Indian government, and some under Covax contracts. Unbelievably, the US is hoarding 45 million Astra Zeneca doses. They cannot be used for vaccinating US citizens, because the product is not approved by the US FDA. So why doesn’t the US donate the doses to India and others at this crunch time? Maybe Annie Gowen has an answer? This is classic ‘dog in the manger’ syndrome.In addition, rich countries have emphatically nixed a call by India and South Africa to suspend TRIPS (Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights) provisions: that simply means that during the emergency, licenses to patents and other intellectual property will be provided at a nominal price so that poor countries can produce generic vaccines for their use. I am also reminded of the pneumonic plague scare in Surat a few years ago. The media (both Indian and western) painted a grotesque picture of negativity that led to mass hysteria and panic. The same thing is happening today in regards to panic buying and shortages of oxygen, Remdesivir (a drug that has been proven to do virtually nothing for virus patients: this is on authority of the WHO; although, admittedly, WHO fiats are a bit dicey) and so on.Why? You might legitimately ask. I have one, somewhat lame, answer: persistent racism. Here’s another example of that in breaking news on April 23rd. They used Indian and African troops as cannon fodder in WW1, but never acknowledged their sacrifice, as they were untermenschen. This is from the British media, https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-56840131But there is more: pervasive contempt for India. See this verbatim report of what the sainted Angela Merkel said in the context of Indian vaccine production: they have “allowed” India to produce vaccines. Now, now, little doggie, you get your biscuit, coz you’ve been a good little doggie, but understand your limits, ok?There is more, much more, that hints darkly at sinister intent: and we have seen glimpses of this in the past, in the cavalier disregard for the lives of people from the global South. Usually, the perpetrators also benefit monetarily. Today, a perfect storm is developing, of technology, climate change and balance of power. The Wuhanvirus pandemic fits neatly into a Final Solution, the kind that an impersonal Artificial Intelligence might produce. This is a public episode.

With his international ultra running calendar on hold, India's premier Trail Ultra Runner dreams up new mountaineering speed ascents in his home of Manali. Read the full article on The Outdoor Journal.Kieren D'Souza first felt the joy of running through the mango fields in Chhattisgarh, India as a boy, while irate farmers chased him with sticks. D'Souza's running career, one that uniquely blends the disciplines of ultra-marathon trail racing with mountaineering time trials, truly began when he reached Manali, which has tantalizing access to a network of forest trails as well as a 6,000-meter mountain peak right in his backyard.Over the past five years, D'Souza has represented his country on the trail running world championship's international stage from Hong Kong to Mont Blanc. During the pandemic, he was finally able to fulfill projects that he's been putting on the back burner for years. D'Souza looked to the unexplored places in his own backyard within Manali, a resort town nestled in the mountains of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh near the northern end of the Kullu Valley.The point of a speed ascent is to select a mountain that climbers usually take three to five days to summit by going through the process of acclimatization - resting overnight at a series of base camps. Instead of three days, D'Souza aims to reach the top and return to the bottom all in one day. It's a hybrid sport, a mashup of ultra trail running and mountaineering. D'Souza is basically sprinting up the mountain in his running shoes with minimal mountaineering gear, arguably too minimal. A few months ago, D'Souza set a groundbreaking record by completing his speed attempt on Deo Tibba, a 6,000-meter peak, in just 19 hours and 38 minutes. In June D'Souza soared up Mount Friendship, a 5,000 meter high Himalayan Summit near the town of Manali without any ropes or an ice axe. If you watch the video linked within our article, you can see just how extreme that is. In this episode of The Outdoor Journal Podcast, D'Souza discusses how he balances training enough mileage in advance of a race without wearing down his body, how he prepares for an alpine speed challenge, and those moments of feeling high up in the mountains of Himachal Pradesh. The best way you can support stories like this is to subscribe to the podcast right now and take a second to leave your review.
