Narendra Modi government has directed states to take Independence Day ‘seriously’ and make sure that the celebrations match the status of the day Now it’s no secret that in 2013 that Modi who was then the Chief Minister of Gujarat and BJP’s PM nominee took the Independence Day very ‘seriously’ While it is not unusual for a chief minister to address his state on the day the BJP and Modi’s PR machinery announced that he would in factaddress the nation much like the Prime Minister of a country on last year’s Independence Day So the day turned into a full-fledged political slug-fest with Modi tearing everyone from the Gandhis to the Congress alleged social media army apart Former PM Manmohan Singh also took potshots at Modi though it was no match for Modi’s blistering attack onhis party PM Narendra Modi AFP The move was high on jingoism and rich in political cunning – after all a speech on Independence Day would make an impact no other speech would While critics including members of the BJP old guard like LK Advani questioned Modi’s move to challenge the PM on Independence Day his fans (and they far outnumbered critics) argued that the state of the country’s politics was such that even Independence Day was not too sacred to highlight the failings of the incumbent government This year however the spotlight will be Modi’s alone And he wants to make sure that this moment when he unfurls the Indian flag and addresses the nation from the Red Fort is celebrated with the sobriety the occasion deserves The Economic Times reports: "ET has accessed a letter written by the Home Ministry to the chief secretaries of all states on August 8 specifying the model drill for Independence Day celebrations at state district block and even the village level The Home Ministry has said in the letter that amongst other things "the speech at the function must explain the significance of 15th August and extort the audience to work for the unity and integrity of the country" It is clear from the government’s directive that it is on a full-blowndrive to come across as a strongly nationalistic government not that it needs to prove thiss anymore However with the state polls coming up in a new months it would only help the BJP’s cause to resurrect the strong nationalistic pitch that Modi refined and rode towards a mindblowing victory Also asking states to take Independence Day ‘seriously’seems perfectly in line with PM Modi’s new ‘country-first everything later’ approach to governance and politics In fact in the National Council Modi cut his own party down to size and asked it to stop its obsession withpolitical wrangling He reportedly asked the state units to take up an important social cause instead Firstpost’s Sanjay Singh reported "His next big idea for the BJP is that that besides doing whatever a political party is supposed to do it should adopt one big social cause and dedicate a year to that cause be it energy conservation (electric and fuel of all kinds) a toilet in every household in rural or urban areas" Almost echoing the Prime Minister’s directions to his party the home ministry’s directions to the states on Independence Day says "Rural sports and recognising importance of rural development should also be made part of the Independence Day celebrations at the state and village level" Given that the math in state polls work slightly differently from the one that guides the general elections it is understandable that both Modi and the BJP will use its Independence Day blitzkrieg for maximum effect The NDA government in its run-time has not taken any radical decision that affects the country’s political trajectory or economy yet Modi is also struggling with a number of domestic issues like high inflation price rise and communal violence Also thestates going topolls – Jammu and Kashmir Maharashtra Haryana Delhi among others – are not known to be BJP strongholds While the party seems to have made definite and strong inroads during the Lok Sabha elections it is clear that they don’t want to keep any stone unturned Which means essentially that Independence Day is most likely to turn into a massive publicity machine for the BJP and the fledgling Modi government The Doordarshan’s Independence Day plan is a confirmation of the same The government broadcaster intends to top it’s I-Day schedule with a three-minute audio-visual on PM Narendra Modi The Indian Express reports "Although DD’s coverage would commence the traditional way with Vande Mataram the state broadcaster for the first time would be airing patriotic songs in several regional languages right at the beginning of its coverage This sources said is in line with the new government’s emphasis on “regional representation” and “inclusion”" However you wouldnot be wrong in thinking thatDoordarshan’s song-list is almost amusical counterpart toModi sporting the headgear of different states during his poll campaign to make them feel included That was a hit and so in all probability will this The Modi’s profile will be preceded by a profile on India’s past Prime Ministers The profiles will be telecast shortly before the live telecast of the flag hoisting programme The IE report notes "While profiles of former PMs have been shown in the past as well it would be for the first time that the profile of the incumbent PM will be aired the sources said" Given the great buzz around Modi’s first speech as the Prime Minister the BJP is most likely to grab the most eyeballs with that AV It looks like theBJP has decided to sound the bugle ever sosubtly against opposition parties for the state polls on Independence Day Written by Gopalkrishna Gandhi | Published: April 29 2015 12:00 am We try to find out through sensors how many mini-quakes have occurred and within what frequency and where and then from the data pattern of mini-quake densities and intensities we are able to conclude if a quake is on its way like a major stroke’ Related News Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reflexes in rushing aid to quake-struck Nepal have been perfect He knows about earthquakes from the time of the Bhuj tragedy on January 26 2001 He was not chief minister of Gujarat then but he was on his way to assuming that office when Bhuj shook not just Gujarat but all of India out of seismological complacency And so our prime minister knows what an earthquake is and does Also howhelp comes pouring in from all over the country and beyond as well Especiallyfrom neighbours We like to think of Sri Lanka as our “small neighbour” But when Bhuj jolted us out of our smugness on Republic Day in 2001 then President Chandrika Kumaratunga and Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar did what any neighbour small or big would have done — they lost no time in offering and indeed giving us help For a nation that was battling 24X7 a most brutal form of terrorism had no foreign exchange reserves worth the name and was in fact in need of every kind of help from other nations Sri Lanka’s response was noteworthy Colombo rustled up a money contribution and a sizeable quantity of blankets and clothing for distribution to the quake-affected “No used clothes” Kumaratunga made clear “Only factory-fresh items” A couple of days later I called on Arthur C Clarke at his Colombo villa-cum-futurist office I had been intending to do so ever since I arrived in that city to work at India’s high commission but it took that quake of quakes to jolt me into seeking that call The visionary received me in his book-lined study He was in a wheel chair an old spinal injury impeded his motor movement I asked Clarke if in his view earthquake prediction would ever be possible His eyes lit up he said “strange that you should ask that” He wheeled himself to a bookshelf full of his own works and pulled out a squat novel Richter 10 co-authored by him as if in answer to my question Clarke’s introduction to Richter 10 begins thus: “Many years ago I was standing in a Delhi hotel when I became aware of a faint vibration underfoot ‘I had no idea’ I said to my hosts ‘that Delhi has a subway system’ ‘It doesn’t’ they answered That was my one and only experience of earthquakes” Clarke’s only novel about earthquakes begins therefore with his only real-life experience of an earthquake — in Delhi When it comes to earthquakes the planet is one The protagonist of the novel Lewis Crane crippled and orphaned in the “great” Californian earthquake of 1974 grows up to be a physicist and a Nobel laureate with a passion for devising a method for quake prediction Clarke now returned to my question and said while earthquake prediction may take some more time what should be done is inaugurate a new architecture in quake-prone areas that would not result in such devastation Will we take heed of his words Earthquake anticipation remains more an ideal than an actuality A couple of years after Bhuj and my meeting with Clarke I was posted in Iceland home to the world’s greatest geothermal reserves and volcanoes in what looks like a lunar landscape “The earth is like the human brain” an Icelandic scientist explained to me “Prior to a stroke mini-strokes are known to occur They generally go unnoticed for they are very very minor We try to find out through sensors how many mini-quakes have occurred and within what frequency and where and then from the data pattern of mini-quake densities and intensities we are able to conclude if a quake is on its way like a major stroke” India and Iceland have since collaborated on earthquake anticipation Sensors have been put into the ground at some sites including our Northeast We need to know if these installations forewarned us about the Nepal quake We have lost time We can lose no more We must attempt the following: First an urgent seismic re-zonation of the Saarc region needs to be carried out Himalayan members — Pakistan India Bhutan Nepal — need to either confirm or update the existing zonations reminding us of the areas of very high risk high risk low risk and little risk This should be public knowledge Why should the public not know what the seismic values of their lands are what the MSK (Medvedev-Sponheuer-Karnik) seismic intensities are and how they affect the sites they live in Second a Saarc seismological agency needs to be set up This should be independent of the member countries’ meteorological departments and keep all member-states informed of seismicities as regularly as the met office informs us about the weather And even more pertinently it should keep the various administrative stakeholders informed alerted and advised Third an earthquake plan for the Himalayas needs to be drawn up Details need to be worked out on how rescue and relief operations can be conducted by air land and water in rough weather conditions and elusive terrains Fourth built structures in the Himalayas need to be identified as very high risk high risk and low risk so that their residents can be forewarned and also made responsible for protecting themselves and those in the vicinity by securing the concerned buildings against seismic risk Fifth the sites for all large dams and nuclear installations in the region need to be reevaluated from a seismic point of view How many of them are in high earthquake risk areas What if an earthquake of the intensity that shook Nepal shakes them what will the fallout be A “seismic stroke” cannot be prevented but by conjoint planning and action in good time its blow can be softened Before time lulls us into complacency again we must follow up the splendidly reflexive first-aid response to Nepal’s trauma by inaugurating an abiding Saarc earthquake management regime The very fragility of the Himalayas can give the Saarc a defining stability The writer a former high commissioner to Sri Lanka and ambassador to Iceland is now Distinguished Professor in History and Politics Ashoka University
