22 2016 12:35 am As a secular democratic and diverse nation India was a living contradiction to the idea of Pakistan But the same did not hold true for us Illustration: C R Sasikumar Top News On August 15 2016 young men raced through the streets of Delhi (and no doubt many other parts of the country) on motorcycles in trucks cars and auto rickshaws waving gigantic versions of the national flag and shouting “Bharat mata ki jai” On the same day Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave his Independence Day address from the Red Fort and the most memorable and consequential part of his speech it now seems was his reference to Balochistan The aftermath has become a discussion and criticism of Pakistan and “our” policy towards “them” rather than a celebration and assessment of India For those of us who belong to the group described as India’s young a question arises Did Pakistan always play such a dominant role in how we defined ourselves as a nation What do we stand for when we wave our flag and shout slogans on the street India has certainly cast a long shadow in Pakistan and that is understandable Since Jinnah’s death in 1948 there was a steady de-secularisation and militarisation of Pakistan’s politics both of which came together during General Zia-ul-Haq’s dictatorship As a secular democratic and diverse nation India was a living contradiction to the idea of Pakistan But the same did not hold true for us India is not a Hindu country and we never defined ourselves in opposition to the neighbour India’s freedom was a separation from the British Empire not from Pakistan And from what one can make out from the history books Pakistan was never as integral to how we defined ourselves as it seems to be now Despite the bitterness of Partition and the battles over Kashmir Nehru’s imagination of India was more focused on bringing in a liberal European modernity under the aegis of a benevolent paternal state Big dams public universities and state-led industrialisation were accompanied by a suspicion of the west (we were recently free of a predatory colonial power) and the desire for self-sufficiency Pakistan while certainly important didn’t stand a chance against the larger project of “nation-building” Even for Lal Bahadur Shastri who found himself in charge of a country at war with Pakistan the slogan was “jai jawan jai kisan” The farmer at a time of food shortages got equal billing to the soldier Indira Gandhi won a war with Pakistan but the rationale for the conflict was a moral one — the liberation of Bangladesh And the slogan that cemented her as a mass leader was “garibi hatao” As time went on and Indira tried to become India our insecurities grew But in a Cold War world the “foreign hand” was usually a reference to the United States and its allies not Pakistan Jayaprakash Narayan and Ram Manohar Lohia were at the forefront of articulating struggles for dignity identity and they rallied the voices of the first generation of students to have come of age after Independence Their successors still count on the political loyalty of the social groups that were politicised during that time Pakistan except perhaps during times of war when jingoism is at its peak was relatively peripheral to our nationalism Now though as India is well into senior citizenship things seem to have changed The heroes of our freedom struggle are no longer deified; we constantly question their legacy We are no longer insecure about the West In fact we want them to come and Make in India The farmer seems to enter the public imagination only when he commits suicide Lofty ideals don’t stand a chance against the joys of a globalised world and a liberalised economy — whether it comes to consuming entertainment from around the world or simply buying our way to bliss We can only look at the romantic idealism socialism and liberalism of the past through a sepia-tinted Instagram filter and marvel at its black-and-whiteness in a high-definition world Now religion seems to play a greater role in politics and cross-border terrorism is having an understandable impact on our relations with our neighbour When we wave a flag our identity seems to be built in large part around the easiest kind of nationalism — in juxtaposition to an enemy When you meet Pakistanis there is no strangeness only familiarity For north Indians in particular there isn’t even a language barrier Their television shows are better than ours and actors like Fawad Khan can easily become sex symbols without being accused of love jihad Perhaps that’s what we should choose to celebrate instead of blaming politicians for our troubles After all it’s easy almost a cliché to blame the political class for the bitterness with which we see our neighbours or the lack of an inspiring vision of India for the youth And yet the young flag-waving motorcycle-riders I saw on Independence Day weren’t just shouting “patriotic” slogans Their expressions of love for their country were peppered with chants of “Pakistan murdabad” While so many of the rest of us were sitting at home (myself included) buying some really great swag on Amazon Perhaps both of us the “patriots” and the consumers are part of what the flag stands for today [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | Published: March 22 2016 12:01 am President Barack Obama (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais) Related News Presidents Barack Obama and Raul Castro have undone the “nothing doing” of almost six decades notwithstanding critics and sceptics on either side including Republican Congressmen in the US and the Cuban revolution’s elder statesman Fidel Castro The US president’s historic visit to Cuba is the first in 88 years by an occupant of the White House; it’s certainly the first since the revolution of 1959 and the freezing of ties from the early 1960s Obama may travel only along freshly un-potholed roads and past monuments given a fresh coat of paint but in a Havana where timezones appear to overlap the imprint of his trip will be deep Unsurprisingly the young are more enthusiastic about Obama’s visit While the older generation may feel a sense of unease at the pace of change younger Cubans can’t wait for the opportunities a full reset of ties could bring Those opportunities can’t come without US investment and a boost to Cuba’s own fledgling and tiny private sector cautiously encouraged by Raul Castro since he assumed office in 2008 His imperative was a dying economy — starved of funds by the US embargo and the fall of the Soviet Union and paralysed by central planning and the prohibition of commercial enterprise The average Cuban income is still $20 a month and the economy is far behind the rest of Latin America Obama’s visit doesn’t put the “final nail in the coffin of the last legacy of the Cold War” The topmost hurdle is the embargo which the US Congress will not lift till Cuba improves its human rights record especially with regard to jailed dissidents while Havana insists on the return of Guantanamo Bay So far Washington has been more flexible It’s time Havana began reciprocating It can begin by opening up the internet and media over which the regime still holds a monopoly For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: IANS | Mumbai | Updated: December 15 2016 7:46 pm Pahlaj Nihalani wonders why he is called corrupt if he doesn’t “cut the kisses” Related News Filmmaker Karan Johar can come to the censor board with Ok Jaanu — his production on a live-in relationship — without worrying says Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani who wonders why he is called corrupt if he doesn’t “cut the kisses” Netizens have spoken out about “double standards” being displayed by the censorship board and have raised questions on how and why the kisses in “Spectre” Tamasha and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil were curtailed/deleted when now “Befikre” gets away with lots of kissing Gossip mills have it that money has exchanged hands But Nihalani laughs it off and says “So I am corrupt if I don’t cut the kisses I am corrupt and ‘sanskaari’ if I cut the kisses I might as well go with the first option” The makers of the forthcoming “Ok Jaanu” co-produced by Karan’s Dharma Productions are said to be now looking at a more liberal approach to their film But Nihalani is not biting the bait “The film that you mention has not come to us as yet And we are certainly not going to certify it keeping ‘Befikre’ in mind as a yardstick Nothing like ‘Agar uske paas 20 kisses hain toh mere paas 10 (‘If they have 20 kisses we have 10’) Every film will be certified on its individual merit” he said Clarifying his stance on a perception being projected within the film industry that the CBFC has a soft corner for Aditya Chopra’s Yash Raj Films which has produced “Befikre” and not such a soft corner for Karan’s banner he said: “You mean because we cut the kisses in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and not in ‘Befikre’” “Firstly let me make it very clear that there was no kiss between Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to cut in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ Yes we did cut the kiss between Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma because we felt that the kiss was unduly prolonged” “Secondly when his film was in trouble over the presence of a Pakistani artiste I was one of Karan’s most vocal supporters Karan is the son of my old friend the wonderful Yash Johar who was one of the most upright and kind souls in this film industry Karan is like my own son” “Let him come to the censors with ‘Ok Jaanu’ ekdum befikre We’ll do whatever is the right thing to do” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express
