In Varanasi last week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that those who disrupted Parliament on the demonetisation issue were trying to rescue the corrupt and compared their action to Pakistan giving cover fire to terrorists to cross the border. Pause for a moment on what the PM said, there is a dispiriting pattern that involves his party and government. From the time it swept to power with a decisive mandate two and a half years ago, to the present moment just days away from a new year, the government has often sought to stave off criticism by labelling any disagreement with its positions and policies as anti-national and pro-Pakistan.

In retrospect, a till-then little-known Bihar BJP leader, Giriraj Singh, may be credited with setting the tone and giving the cue when, amid the 2014 campaign, he exhorted all those opposed to Candidate Modi to go to Pakistan. In 2015, in the middle of another heated campaign, this time for Bihar, party president Amit Shah famously claimed that should the BJP lose in the state, firecrackers would be burst across the border. If you must eat beef, go to Pakistan, said Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. MP Yogi Adityanath wanted to despatch Shah Rukh Khan to Pakistan when the actor spoke of rising intolerance in the country. And more recently, the government alleged that questioning its surgical strikes against Pakistan was lending succour to the enemy. Common to all these episodes is the same message: A government with a decisive majority behaves in insecure and obsessive ways. Of course, political rhetoric — not just here but across the world — taps into the idea of an enemy, real or imagined, within and without, to electorally encash a sense of siege. Yet, at the same time, it is also true that the 2014 vote for the Modi-led BJP was a more complicated thing. It was not just about polarisation, but also about hope and affirmation. By labelling all critics and opponents as enemies of the “nation”, therefore, the BJP-led government at the Centre gravely lets down its own rich and layered mandate.

But more is at stake here than just the image of the BJP and its government’s (mis)reading of its mandate. Its nervous tic on Pakistan is also taking a systemic toll. It means that debates on crucial issues, such as demonetisation, are abbreviated, if not still-born. The relationship between government and Opposition looks headed into a dead-end. By alienating the Opposition even before talking to it, the government is making it more difficult for Parliament to function, and in the process, given its ambitious agenda, as on the GST, scoring a massive own goal. The government must realise and acknowledge an obvious and crucial difference: Sulking, not talking, and surgical strikes may be options vis a vis Pakistan. With the Opposition at home, there is no way out of the more mundane give and take.

पहली नजर में इसमें कोई नई बात नहीं लगती। पृथ्वी, आकाश और नाग से लेकर अग्नि तक भारत कई तरह की मिसाइलें बना चुका है। उन सबके परीक्षण कामायाब रहे हैं और कम से कम मिसाइल व रॉकेट तकनीक के क्षेत्र में भारत की महारत पर किसी को कभी शक नहीं रहा। लेकिन सोमवार को हुआ अग्नि-5 का परीक्षण एक अलग महत्व रखता है। ताजा परीक्षण के बाद भारत उन पांच देशों के साथ खड़ा हो गया है, जो इंटर-कांटिनेंटल बैलिस्टिक मिसाइल बनाने की क्षमता रखते हैं। अग्नि-5 मिसाइल 5,000 से 5,500 किलोमीटर तक मार कर सकती है। यानी इस लिहाज से यह पूरे एशिया और यूरोप व अफ्रीका के कुछ हिस्सों तक मार कर सकती है। वैसे चीन के कुछ विशेषज्ञों ने कहा है कि अग्नि-5 की वास्तविक क्षमता 8,000 किलोमीटर तक हो सकती है, लेकिन रक्षा मंत्रालय ने इसे 5,500 किलोमीटर ही कहा है। हालांकि ताजा परीक्षण 2,500 किलोमीटर की रेंज पर निशाना साधकर किया गया है, जबकि इसकी क्षमता कहीं अधिक है। परीक्षण कितना सफल रहा, इसे इससे समझा जा सकता है कि मिसाइल ने 2,500 किलोमीटर की दूरी सिर्फ 19 मिनट में तय कर ली। परमाणु बम की क्षमता वाली अग्नि-5 का कामयाब परीक्षण यह संदेश भी देता है कि भारत अब अपनी रक्षा आवश्यकताओं को पाकिस्तान के संदर्भ में ही नहीं देख रहा, बल्कि अब वह उससे कहीं आगे बढ़कर सोच रहा है। यही रास्ता है, जो हमें विश्व शक्ति बनने की ओर ले जाता है।

अग्नि-5 के इस परीक्षण को मिसाइल तकनीक व नियंत्रण संधि से भी जोड़कर देखा जाएगा। इस साल अक्तूबर में ही भारत इस संधि में शामिल हुआ था। इसके पहले तक जब भारत कोई मिसाइल परीक्षण करता था, तो पश्चिमी देश उसका विरोध इस बिना पर करते थे कि वह बिना मिसाइल संधि पर दस्तखत किए परीक्षण कर रहा है। हालांकि इस संधि में शामिल होना न्यूक्लियर सप्लायर्स ग्रुप में शामिल होने जितना कठिन भी नहीं था, जहां चीन उसका रास्ता रोककर खड़ा है। कुछ अन्य कारणों से इटली ने जरूर एक बार भारत को इसमें शामिल होने से रोका, अन्यथा भारत के लिए कोई बाधा थी ही नहीं, क्योंकि चीन अभी तक इस संधि में शामिल हुआ ही नहीं है। भारत अब बिना रोक-टोक इस तरह की मिसाइल तकनीक विकसित कर सकता है, बल्कि संधि के सदस्य देशों से उनकी तकनीक ले भी सकता है या उन्हें तकनीक दे भी सकता है। एक समय था, जब इस संधि पर दस्तखत न करने के कारण भारत को रूस से मिसाइल तकनीक हासिल करने से रोक दिया गया था। भारत ने खुद इसकी तकनीक विकसित की, इसमें बहुत कुछ हाथ उस रोक का भी था।

मिसाइल तकनीक के मामले में भारत की कामयाबी हमें हैरत में भी डालती है और गौरव बोध भी देती है, लेकिन कुछ सवाल भी खड़े करती है। इतनी उन्नत तकनीक विकसित करने वाला हमारा देश छोटी-छोटी रक्षा तकनीक के मामले में क्यों दूसरे देशों का मुंह देखता है? क्यों हम आज भी दुनिया के सबसे बडे़ हथियार आयातक बने हुए हैं? हम आकाश से मार करने वाले एक से एक मिसाइल बना रहे हैं, लेकिन छोटी तोप और मशीनगन तक के मामले में हमें दूसरे देशों पर निर्भर रहना पड़ता है। यहां तक कि हमें इजरायल जैसे छोटे देशों तक से हथियार खरीदने पड़ रहे हैं। मिसाइल और रॉकेट तकनीक के क्षेत्र में हमने जो सफलता हासिल की है, उसे रक्षा के दूसरे क्षेत्रों तक कैसे ले जाया जाए, यह हमारी सबसे बड़ी चुनौती है। रक्षा सामग्री के मामले में आत्मनिर्भर न होना एक ऐसी बाधा है, जो विश्व शक्ति बनने के हमारे संकल्प का रास्ता रोक सकती है।

A new research that assessed the impact of global temperature change on crop yield has found the production of wheat—an important part of diets worldwide—will decline as temperatures increase. At the same time, the demand for wheat is expected to increase by 60 per cent by the middle of the 21st century, as per the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The global population is currently over 7 billion and is forecast to rise to at least 9 billion, and potentially up to 12 billion, by 2050, which will put more pressure on agricultural land and water sources. Wheat is one of the most consumed crops in the world. With a 1 ◦C global temperature increase, global wheat yield is projected to decline between 4.1 per cent and 6.4 per cent. The paper was published in journal Nature.

The effect could be worse on warmer countries. Smallholder farmers in African nations and India, who are largely responsible for wheat production, will bear the brunt in such a scenario. The study estimates about 8.0% yield declines per 1 ◦C of global temperature increase in India. In Egypt, simulations showed about 11% and 20% decline in yield with 1 ◦C temperature rise.

Climate change may also have a slightly positive impression on food production.”Some or all of the negative global warming impacts on wheat yield might be compensated by increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations under full irrigation and fertilization,” the paper says.

Research on crop yield in relation to temperature rise is not new. However, this paper integrates results from three different methods improving “the estimated impact precision and confidence in assessments of climate impacts on global food security”.

Such research may be crucial in determining appropriate global food security strategies.

प्रत्येक व्यक्ति के मन में आती है। जो व्यक्ति जिस किसी भी मार्ग पर चल रहा है, उसे कभी किसी ने कुछ बताया नहीं कि तुम्हें कैसे और क्यों अपने बारे में भी कुछ सोचना चाहिए। अब तक उससे केवल यही कहा गया तुम बड़े लगनशील हो, तुम बहुत लाभ कमा रहे हो, इस व्यापार में तुम बहुत सफल हुए हो और ऐसी टिप्पणियों को सुनने के उपरांत उस व्यक्ति में अहंकार भरता चला जाता है। उसके मन में यह अभिमान घर कर लेता है कि मैं सच में बहुत सफल व्यक्ति हो गया हूं। यह अहंकार ही उस व्यक्ति को उसके स्वयं के बारे में सोचने का समय नहीं देता है। जो व्यक्ति केवल दूसरों की बातें कहता-सुनता रहता हो, वह व्यक्ति कभी भी आत्म-कल्याण की बात नहीं कर सकता। हम चाहते हैं कि आत्म-कल्याण के माध्यम से लोग थोड़ा अपने बारे में, अपनी भलाई के बारे में भी सोचें। आजकल ऐसे लोग बड़ी संख्या में मिलेंगे जो अपनी भूलों को स्वीकार करने से भागते हैं। आध्यात्मिक होने का अर्थ यह कदापि नहीं कि आप गृह त्यागी हो जाओ, अपना घर छोड़ दो, इस संसार से भागकर आप किसी साधना शिविर में बैठ अपनी अलग दुनिया बसा लें। 
घर से भागा हुआ कोई पलायनवादी हो सकता है, पर उसे साधक कदापि नहीं माना जा सकता। गृहस्थ जीवन तो स्वयं एक साधना है। जिस प्रकार कोई किसान खेत में हल चलाता है, बीज बोता है और पैदावार करता है, तो यहां वह किसान भी साधना ही कर रहा है। प्रत्येक व्यक्ति ऐसी ही धारणा रखता है कि मेरे बाद मेरे व्यापार आदि का क्या होगा? निश्चित रूप से आपके पिताजी भी आपके बारे में यही सोचते होंगे। आपके मन में यही आता होगा कि मेरे बाद यह दुनिया कैसे चलेगी? लेकिन यह दुनिया चलती है। प्राचीन काल से यह दुनिया चलती आ रही है। जब आपका गागर आत्म-कल्याण के भाव से, आनंद और आत्मसंतोष से भर जाएगा तब संसार की चेतना से प्रभावित होना शुरू कर देगा। इसलिए संसार छोड़ने की बात मत करो, इस संसार में रहो, इसका आनंद भोगो और इस संसार को आगे बढ़ाते हुए आत्म-कल्याण करते रहो I

By admonishing the Union government for delaying the appointment of a Lokpal, the Supreme Court has sent across a timely message that efforts to cleanse the economy must be matched by equally strong measures to cleanse public life too. There can really be no excuse for the failure to establish an institution even three years after passing the relevant law. The only reason for the delay in the appointment of the Lokpal is that a minor amendment to the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act, 2013, to enable the leader of the largest party in the opposition in the Lok Sabha to join the five-member selection committee, is yet to be passed. A parliamentary committee has endorsed the amendment, which is on the same lines as the mechanism for the selection panels for the Central Vigilance Commissioner and the Chief Information Commissioner. The court has indicated that it will not allow the institution to remain inoperative indefinitely, evoking apprehension on the Centre’s part that a judicial direction may be given to get the amendment passed or an ordinance promulgated. The Centre needs to re-examine its own options on implementing the Lokpal Act. The law now provides for a five-member panel to select the anti-corruption ombudsman, comprising the Prime Minister, the Lok Sabha Speaker, the Leader of the Opposition, the Chief Justice of India and an eminent jurist. The hitch is that there is no recognised LoP in the lower House. The question now is whether the Centre is right in claiming the Congress floor leader cannot hold that post because its bench strength is well short of the required 55.

The rule that the Speaker can recognise as LoP only the leader of the principal opposition party that has 10 per cent of the total number of Lok Sabha seats is based on precedent. It was a ruling by Speaker G.V. Mavalankar, cited in the ‘Directions for the Functioning of the Lok Sabha’, with respect to recognising a group as a ‘parliamentary party’. The only legal provision defining the ‘Leader of the Opposition’ is a 1977 law concerning the office-holder’s salary. The definition says the LoP shall be the leader of the party in opposition with “the greatest numerical strength” and “recognised as such by the Speaker”. Therefore, there is nothing in law that prevents the Speaker from recognising the present Congress Parliamentary Party leader as the LoP. Instead of waiting for the amendment, the Speaker can adopt the solution of recognising the CPP leader and expedite the Lokpal’s formation. It just needs political will and some magnanimity.

सात साल बाद दसवीं बोर्ड परीक्षाओं का भूत वापस आ रहा है। सेंट्रल बोर्ड ऑफ सेकंडरी एजुकेशन (सीबीएसई) ने फैसला किया है कि दसवीं में बोर्ड परीक्षाओं को वैकल्पिक न रखते हुए अब फिर से अनिवार्य कर दिया जाएगा। यह आदेश अगले शैक्षणिक सत्र से लागू होना है, जिसका मतलब यह हुआ कि ऐसी पहली बोर्ड परीक्षा 2018 में होगी।

दसवीं में बोर्ड को वैकल्पिक बनाने का फैसला 2011 से लागू हुआ था। इसके पीछे सोच यह थी कि कच्ची उम्र में बच्चों को बोर्ड परीक्षा के रूप में जिस तरह के दबावों का सामना करना पड़ता है, वह उनके व्यक्तित्व के विकास पर अच्छा प्रभाव नहीं डालता। इसके पीछे यह अहम तथ्य भी था कि छात्र आत्महत्याओं के मामले में भारत दुनिया के अग्रणी देशों में गिना जाता है। अब जब सीबीएसई संचालक मंडल ने बोर्ड को दोबारा अनिवार्य करने का फैसला किया है तो साफ है कि उसकी नजर में नई व्यवस्था नाकाम हो गई।

इस निष्कर्ष का आधार उसके द्वारा करवाया गया वह सर्वे है, जिसमें सभी संबंधित पक्षों को शामिल किया गया था। सर्वे में बहुमत की राय थी कि बोर्ड परीक्षा को अनिवार्य बनाना चाहिए क्योंकि नई व्यवस्था से छात्रों का स्तर गिर रहा है। दिक्कत यह है कि हमारी शिक्षा व्यवस्था में सीखने की जिम्मेदारी पूरी तरह स्टूडेंट्स की मान ली जाती है। यानी दबाव में आकर वे कुछ सीख लें या फिर दबाव हटने पर वे सीखना छोड़ दें – दोनों स्थितियों में जिम्मेदार वही होते हैं। बहुमत की इस राय पर विचार करने वालों ने यह नहीं सोचा कि क्या अपनी शिक्षा व्यवस्था में अधिक से अधिक सीखने के लिए बच्चों को प्रेरित करने की गुंजाइश नहीं बनाई जा सकती या नहीं बनाई जानी चाहिए?

इसके अलावा एक और झोल भाषा नीति को लेकर है। मातृभाषा या एक क्षेत्रीय भाषा के अलावा किसी भी भाषा को अनिवार्य नहीं बनाया गया है। स्टूडेंट अपनी मर्जी से कोई भी भाषा चुन सकता है, लेकिन वह संविधान की आठवीं अनुसूची में दर्ज कोई भाषा या अंग्रेजी होनी चाहिए। इससे व्यवहार में स्टूडेंट हिंदी, अंग्रेजी और संस्कृत या मराठी, तमिल आदि कोई भाषा चुनेंगे। यानी जर्मन, फ्रेंच आदि विदेशी भाषा सीखने की प्रवृत्ति कम होगी जो मौजूदा दौर में बच्चों के लिए ज्यादा उपयोगी है।

If we look back on the great political revolutions and the great technological revolutions (both of which are clues to the range of mankind’s capacities and possibilities), we see a striking contrast. Political revolutions, generally speaking, have revealed man’s organised purposefulness, his social conscience, his sense of justice, the aggressive assertive side of his nature. Technological change, invention and innovation have tended, rather, to reveal his play instinct, his desire and his ability to go where he has never gone, to do what he has never done. The one shows his willingness to sacrifice in order to fulfill his plans the other his willingness to sacrifice in order to pursue his quest. Many of the peculiar successes and special problems of our time come from our efforts to assimilate these two kinds of activities. We have tried to make government more experimental and to make technological change more purposive, more focussed, more planned than ever before.
