Harindran) Top News Mumbai Port Trust Chairman Sanjay Bhatia speaks about the plan to open up the vast lands on the Eastern Waterfront a project that will include a marina twice the length of Mairne Drive a central garden five time larger than Oval Maidan a new BKC and a Central government office complex Bhatia also discusses the plan to redevelop Sassoon Dock into a modern fishing village and how Mumbai is ideal for cruise liners Kavitha Iyer: Will the ship-breaking industry be closed down as the Eastern Waterfront project kicks off How will you shut Darukhana We will have to give a plot and the Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) is already there If the state government and the Central government agree then we will go for an SRA scheme The scheme has residential and commercial components That was my first question these people have their livelihood here why would they shift They will shift when they get livelihood and residential Ship-breaking has almost stopped Coal handling has stopped The people will as it is need something else We will of course have to sit down and resolve what happens to the post-2000 slum-dwellers We have some surveys that show 10000 tenements before 2000 This survey is dated 2004 Dipti Singh: Where have the negotiations with fishermen at Sassoon Dock reached They have seen the plan and they have liked the plan I have formed a small committee of those guys our people have are talking to them They are saying (it’s a) very good plan but stop people (fishermen) coming from Versova first We are giving them options such as cold storage boats Kavitha Iyer: Are all reports out in public domain Is there an action taken report And are all nine reports on the eastern waterfront in consonance with what you are doing More or less They are on the website also We have culled out the best parts They are all professionals Now I am going to start discussions with you This is first draft after that we will begin discussions Shaji Vikraman: So it will not be put up for public comments Of course Nothing can be done without public comments The other day I had discussions with Aapli Mumbai then the Urban Design Research Institute Everybody will have to come on board because anyone could file a PIL For the first time Mumbai Port Trust is coming out and saying let’s do it Shaji Vikraman: What you are proposing will overshadow what the port trust has been doing for years Your streams of revenue will completely change No the port trust will be what it is Because out of 800 hectares we are trying to optimise our godowns and about 300 hectares will come out for this project; 500 (hectares) is going to be with the port We are the sixth largest port This is going to be more of a cruise-oriented port which is right now only a report that shows the potential Today our operating revenue is Rs 1400 crore we have about Rs 300 of operating profit There is a good operating revenue coming from port activities Therefore port activities will not stop unless there is very clearly a cruise-type alternative happening there Arita Sarkar: The BMC has marked out affordable housing on MbPT land What would happen to that We have kept that area for residential development So it is not affordable housing the way you think affordable housing but it will be for housing Tabassum Barnagarwala: The project is copying the New York model and the Ballard Estate model What are the original themes you have thought of We are very impressed by the grid patterns of Ballard Estate Architects have said this is the best model There is no boundary wall All places are accessible to people Therefore that is the grid model Luckily that grid model is also there in New York but people only understand when I say New York Real model is the Ballard Estate model The grid will be everywhere the architecture will change with time Kavitha Iyer: The last such large scale plan was the Dharavi redevelopment project which was an utter failure What are the lessons from that We haven’t taken any lessons from Dharavi Probably when we are doing the rehabilitation we will take some lessons Right now we are in the planning stage We will consult all experts If 25 per cent of this happens Mumbaiites should be very happy If a very big conflict happens the slums may not shift But they will have to shift sooner or later All this needs to be done in collaboration with the state government There is a high level committee with the chief secretary as its chairman for issues like moving the slums Shaji Vikraman: Is the Eastern Seafront project recognition that the port trust has reached saturation and that are limitations to future growth I can make ten more cruise berths There is no saturation Mumbai is ideal for cruise So many requests are coming up Indians request a four-day cruise to go during the weekend and come back to celebrate marriages and conferences In October they will plan smaller routes to go to Cochin or Colombo and back It would be much more affordable than going anywhere else Sadaf Modak: The Ballard Estate Festival hasn’t really taken up well Any reason it failed and any plan to revamp it I have had discussions with the event managers and their suggestions are that it should have been planned in a different way This had become more elitist They wanted a different name Which was good but it takes time Probably the next model will be more open There will be no ticket you can go in and crowds will be there…We will probably try that model Our interest in that was not to make money we wanted it to be successful And now with the cruise right there as soon as passengers come out they will see Ballard Estate So these two can join together These two activities are complementary Tabassum Barnagarwala: What is different about this plan as compared to previous ones For the last 17 years plans have been made Every time it was an in-principle plan This time it is on the drawing board This plan will probably be thought about at the highest level because it will change Mumbai For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Suanshu Khurana | Published:

to sexuality and sex with much elan Top News The chimera of the fairytales has remained one of the oldest ways of depicting desire in a large number of populist Bollywood films especially through the phrases used in its songs Swara Bhaskar-starrer Anarkali of Arrah the story of an erotic singer abstains from any of this does not runaround the situation on most occasions and delivers playful allusions to sexuality and sex with much elan The music of the film which releases next week takes on the bawdy in an interesting and mostly uplifting soundtrack Arrah’s Anarkali in Avinash Das’s upcoming film is presented as a paan-eating innuendo-slinging folk singer who will not bow down to the misogynistic world she lives in She tries to elevate puffed up flamboyance of folk music into an art form and is proud of that Bhojpuri folk has varied meanings it exists and it’s interesting how Das has brought it to the mainstream The opening piece Aye daroga tu naliya main jang laaga ho begins with a fantastic banjo prelude by Ravindra Jadhav that is served up with a never-ending stock of innuendo Sung by Swati Sharma the jaunty music is set to lyrics that aren’t exactly Bhojpuri considering the film is based in Bihar but their treatment is like the one given to Bhojpuri songs The jolts the thekas on dholak and the harmonium and banjo combinations transport one to a village in Bihar where a folk troupe with Anarkali leading it leaves little to imagination The metaphors may sound crass but what works is the quintessential folk flavour and the power-packed voices which are at times off-key too an attempt at following the blueprint of the film Lehanga jhaake sung by Indu Sonali captures exactly what the film aims to Sonali is fantastic in her rendition of the double entendre as the thump pounds are offered by the extremely talented Sachin Sawant Aye sakhi ooh touches loosely on raag Pilu and gives a glimpse into the gyrations — sexual and otherwise — of Anarkali’s psyche The interludes and preludes are intricately crafted Pawni Pandey has done a decent job in the piece but one wishes the composer had used one female voice for Anarkali and not four different ones The fourth belongs to Rekha Bhardwaj whose voice does not suit Bhaskar but as a composition it is the finest piece in the album The lilt in the thumri Badnaam jiya de gaari owes a lot to the sombre and melodious raag Patdeep It’s a melancholic song describing the pain of the protagonist The mediocre sarangi and fine sitar interludes take you to the antaras The scale changes to Khamaj and a bit of Miyan ki Malhar and then Pilu The best part about the piece is that Bhardwaj’s rendition is effortless and the piece sounds complicated only when one writes about it One raga flows into another as Bhardwaj sings Do paat kiya mohe baant diya ye kaisi milan ki gaanth piya It’s non-derivative and one of Bhardwaj’s finest renditions since D Day Sonu Nigam gets behind the microphone for Man beqaid which is the only “modern” song here Sometimes a violin and sometimes a sarangi accompanies the interludes and Nigam’s voice in a simple soft ditty Mora piya sticks to the basics of raag Pahadi to deliver a harmonium and dholak piece which is pleasant but forgettable Sa ra ra begins well but loses the plot later It’s the lehanga song sung by Pandey but faster More balam begins with the tune that forms the antara of Rang barse The only notable part of the song is the dholak section Rohit Sharma isn’t well-known in the music industry His association with projects such as Ship of Theseus and Buddha in a Traffic Jam has gone unnoticed This one is likely to stand out for Badnaam jiya and the fact that he can stick to a film’s brief like a pro For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsPublished: March 15 2014 3:01 am MGNREGA was introduced as a lifeline to the rural poor by guaranteeing a hundred days of work where no other employment opportunities exist (PTI) Related News The defining slogan of the campaign that brought about the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) was work on demand — “har haath ko kaam mile kaam ka pura daam mile (everyone gets work and is paid fairly for it)” The failure to convert this dream into a deliverable promise has led to a sense of despondency among potential beneficiaries and ardent supporters MGNREGA was introduced as a lifeline to the rural poor by guaranteeing a hundred days of work where no other employment opportunities exist It was the first rights-based development legislation in India Eight years after it was introduced we are faced with declining employment figures even as demand for work remains unmet What makes this more puzzling is that poverty-affected states are reporting comparatively lower employment provision and expenditure Evidence produced through independent studies the experiences of grassroots organisations and interactions with frontline functionaries indicate that the fall in demand for work is a result of low levels of awareness among workers as well as a lack of administrative capacity to capture the actual demand of rural workers The task at hand therefore was to challenge the perception that the MGNREGA had lost relevance The demand for work is key to unlocking the MGNREGA work cycle This called for a focused effort that strengthens processes and capacity within and outside the implementation structure to go back to basics and invoke the right to demand work To do this Kaam Maango Abhiyan a collaborative effort was recently implemented by the ministry of rural development In collaboration with state governments district administrations and civil society organisations it was conducted in six districts which were selected keeping in mind the geographical variation poverty indices and presence of strong civil society organisations with experience of mobilising workers to access entitlements under MGNREGA The abhiyan divided responsibilities Civil society organisations that committed their participation were responsible for creating awareness of MGNREGA and its entitlements mobilising people to demand work and facilitating the filling of work applications The administration was responsible for receiving work applications entering details into the electronic platform which can then be tracked by the public providing work as demanded and paying wages within the 15-day timeline This collaboration was reflected in the district-level trainings jointly organised by civil society organisations and the district administration Padyatras were at the heart of Kaam Maango Abhiyan Teams of five to 10 people moved from one panchayat to another over five days with a focus on habitations relatively more backward and excluded Teams carried banners posters and puppets singing songs as they went along They were asked to camp in each habitation and assist in filling work applications Most workers that the teams met said that “jitne din kaam milega utne din kaam karenge (we’re willing to work for as many days as we can)” When asked why they hadn’t worked so far they simply said “gaon mein kaam khulla hi nahi (there’s no work available in the village)” and now understood that “maangenge toh milega (if we ask for it we will get work)” Preliminary results have been encouraging Over four lakh work applications and 70000 job-card registration applications have been received across 2700 panchayats A comparative analysis of demand for work in the districts between November 2013 and January 2014 (the abhiyan months) with the same period in the previous year shows a dramatic increase of almost 400 per cent Registration of work applications is just one part of the story Continued coordination with the administration was critical to ensure that work was provided in the stipulated time period (15 days) for the full duration the worker had demanded and paid the wage rate within time Bimonthly rozgar diwas are also being mandatorily conducted in these districts Fixing the date and venue of the rozgar diwas increases the predictability of access to MGNREGA functionaries and will help to institutionalise some of the efforts of the abhiyan KMA has also highlighted some key supply-side constraints and built-in disincentives in responding to demand as it is raised For example dated receipts are rarely given to the workers because of the concern that this could be used as proof by the worker to demand unemployment allowance if work is not provided in time Certain technological interventions such as e-muster rolls have created confusion over access to entitlements at the frontline with workers being turned away if they arrive once the e-muster roll has already been printed More worrying perhaps are the recent budget cuts to the programme?
