18 2017 6:26 am Top News The Central Silk Board (CSB) has proposed setting up a regional centre for sericulture research in Gorakhpur and installation of reeling machines at 164 silk farms of the state government to increase production of silk in Uttar Pradesh Addressing a press conference on Saturday after his six-day-long tour of various districts CSB chairman KM Hanumantharayappa said the climate of the Terai region bordering Nepal is conducive to production of silk and awareness about silk production will help farmers as silk is ready to sell in about two months faster than most other crops “In UP the ground water is shallower and easily available as compared to Karnataka But UP’s share in production of silk is only three per cent while Karnataka produces 60 per cent of India’s silk UP has potential to increase its share to 15-20 per cent There is a need for awareness about the programmes and subsidies of the central government We are going to discuss our recommendations with the chief minister and the sericulture minister” he said before his meeting with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Sericulture Minister Satyadev Pachauri The CSB said in a statement that UP is a major consumer of silk (about 4000 metric tonnes) but produces only 211 metric tonnes of raw silk Though the state has a big domestic market in Varanasi’s weaving enclave it does not produce enough raw silk to fulfill the local demand it said Hanumantharayappa said farmers involved in silk production in the state have to sell their cocoon at low prices to states like West Bengal and Karnataka and the Board has proposed that a cocoon market be set up so that farmers can sell their produce locally at better rates He added that a site is yet to be identified for this Hanumantharayappa said the Board will also provide assistance in research and training so that the farmers as well as those working in the post-cocoon sector can be better prepared for their jobs Pramod Kumar Dixit a scientist with CSB said the production of silk in UP is largely centred in eight Terai districts “The Board has plan to increase the production in all the Terai districts and also increase the number of silk-producing districts from eight to 14” he added For all the latest Lucknow News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: New York Times | Published: August 15 2014 12:22 am Decades later Bacall’s performance in To Have and Have Not has been so memorialised and near-mummified that it can be easy to forget its initial shock waves Top News Her voice comes at you low and flat wildly insinuating electric and lingering In another age Lauren Bacall’s voice might have been called mannish When she opened her mouth in To Have and Have Not — taking a long drag on a cigarette while locking Humphrey Bogart in her gaze — she staked a claim on the screen and made an immortal Hollywood debut But in 1944 at the exquisitely tender age of 19 she was also projecting an indelible screen persona: that of the tough quick-witted American woman who could fight the good fight alongside her man She may not have been Rosie the Riveter and building bombers but there was something about Bacall a New York girl turned Hollywood starlet that suggested a stubborn strength that could stand up to the times The movie is best remembered for its oft-quoted whistle line (oh you know how) but there’s far more to Bacall’s performance than that bit of dialogue Liberally adapted from the Hemingway novel the Howard Hawks film would cement Bogart as a romantic lead after Casablanca He plays Morgan aka Steve a caustic American who charters his fishing boat off the coast of Vichy-controlled Martinique Bacall plays Marie aka Slim a thief and possibly a prostitute who lifts a wallet off a chump under Bogart’s watch but later helps him smuggle French partisans out of the country If the movie’s political backdrop tends to go missing in the mists of the Bogart and Bacall legend — they fell in love during its making — it’s understandable given how they steam up the joint Before teaching him how to whistle Slim slides into Steve’s lap and leans down to kiss him “Whaddya do that for” he says as if the question needed asking “Been wondering whether I’d like it” she says He asks her verdict She murmurs “I don’t know yet” before going in for another try This time he pulls her close his hand circling her neck and they kiss deeper and longer She stops pulls back and stands taking the camera with her and delivers the film’s other great line: “It’s even better when you help” Decades later Bacall’s performance in To Have and Have Not has been so memorialised and near-mummified that it can be easy to forget its initial shock waves James Agee liked Bacall in To Have and Have Not (“the very entertaining nervy adolescent new blonde”) and predicted in his review that the movie’s appeal was predicated on whether you liked her even if he admitted he was no judge Not everyone was wholly sold on Bacall’s coming out Writing around the same time as Agee the critic Parker Tyler noted “the mild Mephistophelian peaks of her eyebrows” and compared her with screen goddesses like Gene Tierney and Rita Hayworth Tyler was confounded by Bacall’s husk and doesn’t seem to have known that per Hawks’s instructions she had stripped away any trace of what he deemed a potential feminine flaw After signing her Hawks had begun shaping Bacall telling her in an anecdote related in Todd McCarthy’s invaluable biography Howard Hawks: The Grey Fox of Hollywood: “When a woman gets excited or emotional she tends to raise her voice Now there is nothing more unattractive than screeching” For Tyler the results were mannered and synthetic Yet he also rightly pinpointed an androgynous quality in Bacall that helped distinguish her debut and made it such a playful gloss on the classic femme fatale: “Her Hepburnesque Garbotoon clearly confirmed in her subsequent pictures equals Dietrich travestied by a boyish voice” Like Garbo and Dietrich two other goddesses that Tyler invoked Bacall’s on-screen presence in To Have and Have Not draws on both feminine and masculine qualities that suggest an excitingly capable woman Guided by Hawks Bacall calmed her trembling chin gave Bogart a sexy little slap and filled out her character with so much personality that she transcended her third billing (after Walter Brennan) to become an erotic emblem of American wit and war-ready grit There’s another calculus in the Bogart and Bacall pairing Ingrid Bergman may have warmed Bogart up in Casablanca but it was Bacall who lit him on fire She later complained about being in his shadow; in truth each burnished the other’s legend as all four of the movies they made together prove She made some good ones without Bogart who died in 1957 including the fizzy How to Marry a Millionaire But after the 1940s as pneumatic blondes blew up and gender roles were re-established she didn’t often find the film roles that suited her cool steady gaze The movies couldn’t see it but she was born to go quip to quip curled lip to lip with a man The New York Times For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsPublished: February 13 2014 12:04 am As the BJP asks for a mandate it will focus on ‘all India’ factors and the ‘national mood’ Related News State-level contests could disrupt the party’s grand narrative By the end of January two things had become clear about the coming parliamentary elections One that the Congress party after 10 years of rule at the Centre was on its way out The only question now is how humiliating that exit will be Two the BJP was surging ahead in the electoral race So much so that the dream of a Narendra Modi-led BJP government almost free of coalition crutches would seem very real to its supporters But politics has begun to show indications that the story of elections 2014 is not fully written yet For the BJP the best scenario is a near-majority with Modi at the helm But as we move closer to the elections it seems the BJP might have to be content with more modest results How “closed” is the electoral contest likely to be Let us first rule out what these elections cannot produce Even a partisan assessment is unlikely to give the Congress an edge in the coming parliamentary elections Opinion polls are projecting a dismal show by the party In the last 25 years the party’s highest vote share recorded in 1989 was near 40 per cent But its average vote share since it started entering into pre-election alliances has been under 28 per cent Even the most generous projection for the party would be that it will clock in this average and achieve its average conversion rate (technically known as the seat-vote multiplier) of 105 for the same period That would give the Congress 158 seats at the most — and this assuming that it actually manages its average vote share which no serious analyst is likely to vouch for It is not just that electoral history and arithmetic are pitched against a Congress comeback It has allowed politics to go against it A recently conducted Lokniti-CSDS survey (for CNN-IBN) indicated that voters were worried about price rise and dissatisfied with the performance of the UPA They do not want the UPA to be re-elected and rate the prime minister negatively Not more than 27 per cent of respondents said they intended to vote for the Congress So crossing 150 seems tough for the Congress; dipping to its lowest ever tally of 114 as seen in 1999 appears quite likely Should that happen elections 2014 would not produce a close contest either It would be much more one-sided than the Congress would like This gives the elections a sense of being a “closed” contest And yet one needs to balance the Modi-mania with some very real possibilities Early trends can often be deceptive because they do not capture the stratagems and silent currents among voters Three scripts might interrupt the BJP’s grand narrative of a Modi-led millennium First the weeks leading up to the elections will witness a contest between two ideas about elections and campaigning As the BJP asks for a mandate it will focus on “all India” factors and the “national mood” In contrast state parties are likely to puncture the all-India language and disaggregate it into regional state-level or local dialects of politics The success of these players in pitching the battle at the state level rather than at the national level hinges mostly on the southern and eastern states The crucial states will be Tamil Nadu Andhra Pradesh Odisha Bihar West Bengal and Assam Together they have 193 seats in the Lok Sabha For their own survival most state-level parties are interested in keeping the contest confined largely to their respective states This factor works equally against the Congress and the BJP But because the BJP has pitched its stakes so high regionalisation of the contest would hurt it more Second much of the BJP’s success is expected to come from the north and the west The party is already strong there Yet two factors may challenge the BJP in this region Most crucial is the battle for Uttar Pradesh While recent opinion polls suggest that the BJP is poised to perform much better than it did in the last two elections it would be too early to write off the SP and BSP If UP throws up even the semblance of a triangular fight then the election suddenly becomes wide open That will fracture the BJP’s famous north-plus-west base Besides the possibility of the Aam Aadmi Party doing well in Haryana and Punjab could further dent the north-plus-west story The AAP is already sitting pretty on its newly acquired base in Delhi Contrary to media pronouncements on the AAP’s failure it has not lost the limelight or popularity there With the AAP doing well in Delhi-Haryana-Punjab the BJP could fail to gain from Congress losses That explains the strident attacks on the AAP coming from the BJP Third post-election politics now suddenly promises to be complex with renewed talk of a Third Front Protagonists of the Third Front point out that the non-Congress and non-BJP vote share has consistently remained in the range of 45-50 per cent So there is a space waiting to be politically appropriated and the best way of doing that is to form multiple coalitions keeping out the Congress and BJP This arithmetic has not produced a corresponding politics so far But the formation of a Third Front could send negative signals to the BJP’s post-election calculations By entering into an alliance with Left parties the AIADMK has laid to rest speculation that it would support the BJP (at least for now) With this decision the prospect that many state parties might extend support to the BJP after the Lok Sabha polls has been weakened Given the way Nitish Kumar and earlier Naveen Patnaik parted ways with the BJP it is unlikely they will be allies Mamata Banerjee has not been very enthusiastic about a tie-up with the BJP either This leaves loose cannons like the YSR Congress which might choose to talk business with the BJP though only after elections And the BJP can accommodate only one of the Andhra parties — the TDP or the YSR Congress The Third Front thus reduces the BJP’s room for manoeuvre in post-election calculations Moreover for most Third Front parties it makes sense to keep the electoral contest fragmented and defined in terms of state-level competition Thus while Third Front politics is about post-election scenarios it is also about setting the terms of the contest to shape the outcome itself What the Third Front seeks to do then is ensure that while the Congress loses more seats on its own the electoral contest is framed in such a manner that the BJP fails to achieve the dramatic victory that has been projected for it in 2014 The way in which these three scripts — state-level contests breaching the BJP’s north-plus-west bastion and the BJP’s reduced room for post-election manoeuvre — unfold will determine how “closed” the ensuing contest is The writer teaches political science at the University of Pune [email protected] For all the latest
