Did Ambedkar want Dalits to wear three-piece suits? A clothing label raises some sartorial questions

Did Ambedkar want Dalits to wear three-piece suits? A clothing label raises some sartorial questions

On a dark, dark staircase, looting piles of unguarded garbage on the third floor of a spilled building, they arrive at the office of SN Enterprises, a clothing manufacturer in Punjabi Basti Delhi. This Gali, with its narrow and verified buildings, is a center of small units in leather and cloth. On the floor above the office is a room where workers with sewing machines produce shirts and pants and unmarked affordable for the working class of the city.

Dalit commentator and entrepreneur, Chandra Bhan Prasad, is there, inspection of a new crop of white cotton Giza has just passed Bangalore. This is part of the research and development for Prasad Zero Plus, a clothing brand just released for the Dalits, which has Prasad.

Last year, Prasad introduced a range of spices, pickles and cereals as dalit food online – the e-commerce brand, Prasad said, was a social experiment against discrimination. Zero Plus is an extension of the same idea that dalit brand products combine policy with economics. On a smaller scale, but with a similar goal, supporters of the Bhima Army – an organization that mobilized Dalit youth in western Uttar Pradesh with its strong network – also promoted various businesses within Dalit community, such as Bheem Shakti, detergent Powder, marketed as an alternative to Patanjali.

To legitimize his brand, Prasad returned to Ambedkar. It states that Zero Plus, which has a range of shirts and pants (and will soon spread to suits and neckties for men, with a range of garments for women) is inspired by sartoriaux’s icon Dalit. The political symbolism of Ambedkar’s three-piece suit, fortified by its statues planted throughout the country, has become so deeply rooted in the consciousness of India that it has become popular culture. Over the past year Kabali, Rajinikanth, who plays a thick suits hero subclass of political consciousness tells his followers that dressing in suits is a form of resistance.

This is the message Prasad, 58, Pasi (traditionally a caste raising pigs, considered untouchable) Azamgarh hopes to capitalize. “There are several reasons for doing so,” he said. “We want to benefit, it’s the first.We also want to set an example and make fashion entrepreneurship for Dalits.” But outside the company, I consider it as a business and social reform movement. ”

Prasad intends to give an advantage to his clothing brand. “I use the best quality fabrics and clothing is comparable to the best brands,” he said. “It’s high-quality formal wear that I want Dalits to adopt. Dalit’s level of acceptance will increase once they dress better.”

The name of the brand, according to him, is inspired by the concept of zero and infinity in mathematics, but it is equally likely that a subversive reference to dalit identity. To begin with, Prasad is in the process of delivering and selling to everyone you know in your circle and through online social media before you start the month of July.

Pharma stocks fall up to 6.5% on NSE

Pharma stocks fall up to 6.5% on NSE

Shares of pharmaceutical companies tumbled on Tuesday with the Nifty Pharma index, dropping to about 3.12% and a peak of $ 52,595 in intra-day trade, its lowest level since August 2014. The Nifty Pharma index ended Session of 310.90 points from 648.30 to 9 points, while the S & P EEB Health closed the session 2.72% less than 14 216.70 points. Shares of pharmaceutical companies fell 0.3% to 6.5% on the National Stock Exchange (NSE).
The bad prospects for the sector exposed by a Credit Suisse report led investors cautious across the sector. Credit Suisse said that Indian drug stocks had devalued by 10% over the past year, but price erosion is expected to increase further devaluation.
A fall in sales of Taro, the US subsidiary of Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, led to a 3.87% drop in company shares in the NSE and 4.33% in BSE. Aurobindo Pharma was the biggest loser among pharmacy stocks that reached their 52-week low at Rs538. Aurobindo Pharma shares fell 6.11% on Tuesday at the close of the session at Rs540 of NSE. In addition Aurobindo Pharma, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals and GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals reach their 52-week minimum in the NSE intraday trade.
This price erosion could be triggered by an increase in FDA approval for drugs that increase competition and affect finances. Credit Suisse analysts expect price erosion to rise from 10 to 12 percent from the current 7 to 8 percent, which will lead to growth in the profits of most pharmaceutical companies.
Credit Suisse expects the abridged approval of new Medication Application (ANDA) increased from 650 to 1,000 over the next two years. “We are like Lupine, Dr. Reddy and neutral at Sun Pharmaceutical Industries. We prefer Cadila and Cipla, with a lower base and a good pipeline,” said Anubhav Aggarwal and Chunky Sha of Credit Suisse in a report.

Anger in South Kashmir over the charred bodies of young militants killed in encounter

Anger in South Kashmir over the charred bodies of young militants killed in encounter

About 20 km south of Srinagar, in the eastern part of the Pulwama district, is the Tehsil Kakapora deceptively serene. Large expanses of oscillating paddy fields on both sides of streets provide no indication of agitation in the region.

Kakapora is considered dangerous. Last week, travelers from Srinagar stopped in almost all major towns en route to Kakapora and discouraged to continue.

On the night of June 21, three militants suspected of operating with Lashkar-e-Taiba were killed during a meeting in Kakapora. In the demonstrations that followed, a civilian, Tawseef Hussain Wani, 22, was killed.

Now, region anger blurs in both civilian murder because the bodies of the three local activists were charred beyond recognition after security forces burned the house where the militants were closed.

“Tawseef was a good boy,” said Iqbal Ashiq, a resident of Kakapora. “I know the police say it’s a chronic stone of the foot, but I see a child who is not unhappy. But, if a stone peloteur, it is not supposed to be dead.

The Kashmir valley has been turbulent for almost a year after the death of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani at a meeting on 8 July has sparked widespread protests and state repression.

Around 9 pm, June 21, a hundred security personnel who have moved quietly to a two-story house in the new Kakapora colony. A joint team of 50 Rashtriya Army Special Operations Group Rifles and the Central Force Reserve Force led the operation, with the help of the Jammu and Kashmir police.

New Cologne is a densely populated town in a region of other forms of mansion points in the middle of farmland.

A narrow path, wide enough to fit a person well integrated at the same time, leading to the courtyard of the house where the militants were blocked. Neighbors say the house belonged to Abdul Ahmad Bhat and his brother, who runs a pharmaceutical company in Srinagar.

According to security force tweets, they have received information that three Lashkar-e-Taiba militants were hiding in the house. The quoted IANS news agency said on Wednesday an unidentified official that security forces were in “hidden heavy auto-activists” and “shots were returned.”

At the meeting, which lasted about six hours, security forces killed three militants and announced that three weapons – two AK-47 assault rifles and one pistol – were recovered. The militants were identified as Shakir Ahmad Gagjoo, 17, Majid Mir, 20, and Irshad Ahmad.

While security forces often use homes where militants are hiding the fact that the families of the dead militants were transferred to charred bodies provoked an increase in the sentiments of the region.

“My son had guns, the army had guns,” said Bashir’s father Ahmad Shakir Ahmad Gagjoo Gagjoo. “So I see that they could fight, I do not understand the burning of bodies.

He added that this was the most Islamic thing we can do for Muslims.

To curb air pollution, Maharashta will give its industries star ratings based on emissions

To curb air pollution, Maharashta will give its industries star ratings based on emissions

The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board launched a new Star Classification Program for air pollution on June 5, World Environment Day. The program uses smoke emission data that the Board is compiling. Since the sampling results are not comprehensible to the general public, the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board is making these pollution readings easy to understand.

Under the new scheme, industries are classified according to the density of fine particle pollution from their smokestacks. The top performing industries receive five stars. Those with the highest emissions density receive only one star. Industry, government and the public can access the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board website to access report cards for the plants in their area.

India is moving towards ambitious clean energy targets such as solar and wind power. Between 2017 and 2040, India will account for 15% of the estimated global investment of 10.2 billion dollars in electricity generation. As these technologies improve and are cheaper, the costs of going green have dropped. Earlier this year, the cost of solar energy (Rs 2.62 / kWh) fell below the market price of energy generated by coal by the National Thermal Power Corporation, 10. The cost of solar power could drop 66% more in 2040 on current costs, according to the Bloomberg New Energy Outlook 2017 report. However, the progress of the technology alone will not be enough for the industry to adopt a cleaner growth.

Maharashtra knows the benefits and by-products of growth. For example, the Chandrapur Heavy Industry Center is ranked as the most polluted city in India from 2016 with an air quality rating of 824. The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board regulates industries in the state and Requires advanced control technology. What else can be done to reduce this pollution? In such a thick area with cement, energy and other heavy industries like Chandrapur, it is difficult for the public to know the answer to this question.

The Maharashtra Star Rating Program is the first government-led initiative in India that makes data available for approximately 20,000 industrial battery samples over several years. An easy and accessible way to inform Maharashtra residents about the industry’s emissions around where they live and work, the program has the added benefit of instilling transparency and accountability into the system.

This transparency can cause changes in two possible ways. First, by making citizens more informed about sources of pollution in their communities, citizens can then ask for action. And second, by giving industries information about their pollution emissions, they may discover inefficiencies in their system and opportunities for improvements such as the installation of new technologies.

It could also instill some healthy competition. There is a growing literature on behavioral economics (here, here and here) that suggests that knowing what your peers are doing can be a major source of change. Therefore, industries can see how their performance compares to others and be motivated to improve. Along the way, they could also learn from each other’s success …

Assam’s Nepalis support the Gorkhaland movement – but say they will never leave their state

Assam’s Nepalis support the Gorkhaland movement – but say they will never leave their state

As a student at the Indian Institute of Technology in Dhanbad Jharkhand, Krishna Khatiwoda endeavored to explain to people that although he was from Nepal by descent, Assam was his home state. “I had an identity crisis,” said Khatiwoda, who speaks fluently assamois and graduated from high school this year. “When I told people I am from Nepal, they are going to say: ‘Oh, you are Nepal’ But I would tell them ‘I am not … I am Assam I am Indian ..’

While Darjeeling, West Bengal, blinded new demands for the creation of a separate state of Gorkhaland of Nepalese origin from Gorkha, like Khatiwoda – Nepal who was born and raised in Assam – supported the state movement. “This is a struggle for our identity,” Khatiwoda said. “We need a separate statement, so we do not have to explain every time we introduce ourselves that we are not in Nepal, but we are Indians.”

According to the 2001 census, Assam is home to 5.65 lakh Nepalese-speaking people – the highest of any state after West Bengal (which had 10.23 Nepali lakh in 2001). However, Nepalese in Assam said the actual number was even higher. “Assam has the largest number of Nepal in the country,” said Sanjib Chetri, secretary of the All Gorkha Assam Student Union. “There are about 25 Nepali lakhs in Assam. In Bengal, the number will not exceed 20 lakh.”

Rajsekhar Sapota, a veterinary science student in Guwahati, said that “the house always Assam” supported the claim of a separate state of Gorkhaland because it was simply that the Nepal community responded to its fair value. “If you go to the area around Darjeeling, you will see that the population is completely different from the rest of [West Bengal],” he said.

In 1986, when the demand for a separate state of Gorkhaland was first acquired in 1986, after the widespread expulsion of Nepal Meghalaya under the Gorkha National Liberation Front, led by Subhash Ghising. At that time, the Joint Action Committee of the New Optical Assam Organizations, Nepal’s dominant group organization in Assam, had set the Nepal number in Assam at about 18 lakh.

Nepali people speaking in Assam came in waves. The first large-scale migration was believed to have occurred in 1826 when the British were using Gorkha soldiers to annex Assam. Later, the British also brought a large number of Nepal to work in the state as many workers in the coal mines and oil fields in the region. The large tracts of green land of Assam also attracted the shepherds of Nepal in recent years.

While people of Nepalese origin are largely friendly with other Asamois, there have been cases of parasitic power, especially in the years following the Assam agreement in 1985. Among other things. The document sets midnight on March 24, 1971, as the date for entry into the state. All those who came to the state of Assam after they would declare themselves illegal immigrants. Although the movement was aimed at preventing illegal immigrants from Bangladesh to the Bay, Nepal has also been caught in the crossfire on occasion.

Not In My Name: I refuse to cede Hinduism to those who want to make India a Hindu rashtra

Not In My Name: I refuse to cede Hinduism to those who want to make India a Hindu rashtra

I will never forget that cold, rainy day in New York in March 2011. I was part of an interreligious vigil to support the creation of a Muslim cultural center in southern Manhattan, near Zero Attack Zone 11 September 2001. From Just as I began to lament the lack of Hindus the day before (as is often the case), I heard a beautiful Hindu prayer over a megaphone.

But to my fear, I noticed that the prayer was sung by a man dressed in saffron on the other side of the police line, in protest because he believed that the construction of an Islamic center and mosque near ground zero was Luck that contaminated the hundreds who died at the hands of the Muslim terrorists on September 11.

Until then, my Hinduism was private and my activism was public. But that day, I promised never to allow anyone to use Hinduism preach hatred in my un-counter presence that says, “Not in my name.”

But even as I write this piece, I find the news of another lynching in India – this time a 15-year-old boy died Muslims after he and his brothers were attacked by a group of 10 to 12 Hindu men train.

In 2011, some of us created the Sadhana Group: Coalition for Progress of Hindus, based in New York, because we could not assume that there was no politically progressive Hindu vote against a growing Hindu and radically Islamophobe and casteist nationalist movement. The founders and members of Sadhana are Hindus who have been brought up to believe that the heart of our religion is plural.

We were taught to embrace the teachings of the unity of all (ekatva), compassion and non-violence to all beings and the universe (ahimsa). We have worked hard in recent years – writing, speaking, walking, organizing events and organizing Hindu children’s courses based on the teachings of social justice at the heart of Hindu texts – and we have been recognized for our efforts.

“Hindu liberalism, once so vigorous and upward, is increasingly under siege, while the leadership of the community passed to the intolerant and reactionary. Having (to quote Gandhi) once lived in a house with windows were Open to the breeze from outside come freely, having once (to invoke Tagore) glorified in the illumination of a lamp lit everywhere, the Hindu leaders now turn inward, looking back.

And a large part of the community follows suit. Therefore, a greater number of Hindus seem to have blocked their sensibility with a huge lock and threw the key. “In addition,” it has become difficult to open the lock. If he decides to open, he is considered as an enemy of Hinduism and the anti-Hindu person. ”

Ananya Vajpeyi in a room for Scroll.in, spoke about the erosion of public empathy and warned, “Vaishnav jan to Kahiye tene urinating paraai Jaane re. Soon, there will be no description in most Hindu Rashtra.”

Also in Scroll.in, Samar Halarnkar wrote in the context of the response to recent lynchings. “But it is not only Hindu conservative law is unclear in most Hindus, it is condemnation, sympathy for lynchistes or public expressions of unity with the minority.”

How a woman’s dissent led to Indian mothers getting guardianship rights to their children

How a woman’s dissent led to Indian mothers getting guardianship rights to their children

Upon discovering that he was not the natural guardian of his minor son, the acclaimed author Githa Hariharan decided to challenge the relevant sections of the Law, the Hindu Minority and Guardianship 1956 and the Guardians and Guardians Act, 1890 on the grounds that they violate The equality promised by Articles 14 and 15 of the Constitution of India. In 1999, a resolution was passed, which indicates that, according to Hindu law, the mother can also be the guardian of her minor children. He responded at the trial.

On 17 February 1999, a Supreme Court court, including the Chief Justice of India, issued a judgment on mothers and children. The highest court held that “it is an axiomatic truth that the mother and father of a minor child have a duty to care for the person and property of their children.” In a concurrent ruling, one of the members of the same court noted that “the father because of a dominant personality can not be attributed to having a preferential right in the motherboard for guardianship since both belong to the same category”.

This is supposed to be a historical judgment; A milestone in the fight for women’s rights. I should feel a sense of triumph. But the truth I could not stop looking into was a simple question: are we so blind that we need the law to tell us that a mother has the right to be the guardian of her acknowledged son?

It was five years ago, I discovered that although I am an adult citizen of India, a working citizen, taxpayer, wife and mother – all that is acceptable and respectable – I am still not considered a “natural guardian” of my son. I asked the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for its 9 percent emergency bond on behalf of my eleven-year-old son. I was told that only the child’s parent could sign the application for purchase or refund.

My husband and I have written to the producer that for this reason, we agreed on that fonctionniez as a tutor. But the response was inflexible and we found, completely legal: if I wanted to sign as my child’s guardian, I should produce a certificate from a competent authority to prove my husband was “unfit”; Or that he was dead; Or that he took vanaprastha.

Consider the irony: Like any other woman, I was raised in a world that has told you in many ways that your reason for being. Once again, like most women, I made peace with biological and social expectations. But to be said that it could be considered as the natural guardian of “illegitimate” children, not “legitimate”! And I was not legally responsible just to be helping, not a recognized decision-maker on issues related to my son’s well-being! As the law has had no problems with my income tax payment for my son, a single salary of the mother?

With the help of the Lawyers’ Women’s Rights Initiative program, my husband and I filed a request for an order from the Supreme Court to challenge the constitutionality of the minority and the Indian Guardianship Act (1956). Section 6 of the Act states that the mother is the natural guardian of her legitimate minor child “after” the father; Section 19 of the Law, Guardians, and Guards (1890) prohibits the court to appoint a guardian for a minor whose father lives and can not, according to the court, is not fit to be a guardian.

Arun Jaitley urges Jammu and Kashmir to clear state GST Act for national rollout on July 1

Arun Jaitley urges Jammu and Kashmir to clear state GST Act for national rollout on July 1

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday urged the Jammu and Kashmir government, Mufti led by Mehbooba, to eliminate the State Property and Services Act prior to the enactment of the July 1 national law.

Jammu and Kashmir are the only ones that have not yet adopted the law. Jaitley said the failure of the application would put companies at a disadvantage and have a “negative impact” on the economy, the Hindu said.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Commerce and Industries, Nirmala Sitharaman, refuted the concern about rising commodity prices under the new regime. “There is no different explanation for the public and another for traders,” Sitharaman said. “It’s all the same. The price of basic necessities is not going to increase.”

In a letter to the Chief Minister, Jaitley would have suggested that the state uses its powers for a special statute under section 370 to give its approval without the authorization of the Assembly, the Times of India reported. The Popular Democratic Party party – the Bharatiya Janata Party government plans to end the stagnation in the Assembly before the nationwide launch, unidentified officials said.

The state will be a meeting of all parties to discuss the issue after a special session of the House on June 17, did not vote.

Implications for the state
The Finance Minister has warned the state government that the exclusion of the tax system would translate into higher prices of goods in the state, as well as an increase in taxes on goods leaving the state.

Jaitley said entrepreneurs would not be able to benefit from the credit option available under the new tax regime. “The GST is a tax based on fate … if the state of Jammu and Kashmir do not join the GST on July 1, dealers do not take into account the integrated GST in all purchases,” said Jaitley in his letter To the Mufti.

The Center began to accept registration applications from companies that still have to register with the Tax Network products and services. Jaitley had said that the government had recorded nearly 65 lakh taxpayers on the network, The Hindu.
Once in the network, companies can use the common portal to file tax returns and pay taxes.
The Center has also delayed the launch of a role in the new tax regime that would make it compulsory for e-commerce players to deduct tax on payments made to suppliers.
The government led by the BJP said that small businesses using e-commerce platforms should not enroll in the network immediately.
The delay gives e-commerce platforms and suppliers more time to meet the requirements of the new law.
The Center has dismissed the claims of the Association of Indian Chambers of Commerce and the Ministry of Civil Aviation to postpone the implementation of the GST deployment.

Aadhaar mandatory for school kids too! Visit your bank to speed up process

Aadhaar mandatory for school kids too! Visit your bank to speed up process

Aadhaar mandatory for school kids too! Visit your bank to speed up process

Center asked Karnataka and 15 other states to supplement the Aadhaar schoolchildren on August 31 and send the data to serve their lunch noon “to perfection.” According to the Deccan Herald, this occurs when the Human Resources Development Department (HRD) noted that many of these 16 states had been delayed in completing the task, Nagaland has recorded only 15% of 1,549,449 Aadhaar students.

In Karnataka, only 70 percent of the total number of students enrolled in Aaadhar. In total, 49,10,765 students from public schools in the state.

“The planned date for the accession of 100% Aadhaar is August 31, 2017. Seriously, suggesting that the Aadhaar registration campaign is awarded by the Karnataka Government within a specified period,” Secretary of the Department of Education A school of the Ministry of Human Rights, said Anil Swarup in his letter to the chief secretary of Karnataka Subhash C Khuntia.

According to the Ministry of the date, only 23% of the school’s students enrolled in Aaadhar in Andhra Pradesh, 26% in Uttar Pradesh, Odisha 28%, 42% in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh 61% and 63% in Bihar.

The West Bengal government has not shared any updates on the recruitment of Aadhaar students despite “repeated requests and reminders” from the Ministry of Human Resources, an official said.

To simplify the process, one of the 10 bank branches will now have the Aadhaar registration facility. Unique Identification Indian Authority (UIDAI) has called on private banks and public sector banks to establish an Aadhaar registration system in at least one of the 10 branches in the coming weeks, an official said.

At present, there are 25,000 registration centers active throughout the country, but operating from their own facilities. However, none of these centers is operated at the bank’s premises.

“We called all regular commercial banks – public and private – to establish a registration center and update Aadhaar within bank branches … At least in one of the ten branches in August-end,” said Ajay Pandey Bhushan, CEO of PTI UIDAI.

There are 120,000 bank branches in the country and, for this move, it will establish 12,000 Aadhaar inscription and update centers in these branches, he said.

He added that management would provide a “convenience” to people like Aadhaar is now required to open new bank accounts and existing accounts.

In addition, the location of the Aadhaar centers in the bank guarantee facilities that records occur in a secure environment.

“Registration will be in a safe and supervised environment. So there is less chance of complaints of corruption, overload or bad practices,” Pandey said.

In other words, many private banks have asked to be allowed to register for Aadhaar, Pandey said, adding that the authority will name the “registrars”, if they have not done so.

Many banks are already “registrars” but do not have registration centers on the bank premises.

The government has recently cited the Aadhaar 12-digit biometric identity number mandatory for opening bank accounts and for any financial transaction of Rs 50,000 and above.
