INDIA, RUSSIA TALKS: 1ST

FOREIGN MINISTER S JAISHANKAR IN MOSCOW
“THISISNOTAN

First India Bureau
Moscow: External Af-
fairs Minister S Jais-
hankar, who is on a two-
day visit to Russia, on
Tuesday said the talks
with his Russian coun-
terpart Sergey Lavrov
focused on trade and
investments, transport
and logistics, and pro-
jects in energy sector.
During bilateral talks,
EAM Jaishankar also
raised the issue of the
Russia-Ukraine conflict
and asserted the “global
economy is too interde-
pendent to have any
conflict”.
Urging Russia and
Ukraine to return to
dialogue, EAM said,
“We exchanged views
on international issues.
Ukraine conflict was
dominant feature. As
PM Modi conveyed to
Prez Putin this is not an
era of war.”
On buying oil from
Russia, he said that the
trade works to India’s
advantage and so the
country wants to keep it
going. Jaishankar also
said that Russia a
“steady partner” and
urged the world to ex-
tend full support to the
Taliban-ruled Afghani-
stan on the humanitar-
ian ground.
Shashikant Sharma
Shimla: The Assembly
elections are round the
corner in HP and as a
result, temperature is
rising continuously in
state capital Shimla.
Amidst this, an inter-
esting picture and a
new type of campaign
has surfaced. Actually
Congress put up posters
and hoardings in Shim-
la and wrote on the
hoardings - ‘Congress is
coming’. However,
when Congress started
something, BJP could
not be far enough in giv-
ing a reply and as soon
as HP BJP got info
about this ‘campaign’,
it immediately put up
other posters next to
Cong poster and wrote,
“In Jairam ji’s oath tak-
ing.” BJP did not stop
just there and hit fur-
ther, by putting up an-
other poster which said,
“And to sit in Oppn.”
Now seeing these pic-
tures, the voters too
have a smile on them as
they can not help but
share Congress’ ‘tac-
tics’ and BJP’s replies
with others.

DEMONETISATION:
BLACK MONEY KEEPS
TUMBLING OUT AND
CASH STILL RULES
emonetisation hap-
pened six years ago
but not a year has
passed without a re-
view of its conse-
quences on the quantum of liq-
uid cash in the market which it
was supposed to bring down to
curb the circulation of black
money and promote digital
economy
. In the last six years the
digital economy has indeed
made much progress with con-
sumers and traders finding it
more convenient. Stringent up-
per limits for cash transactions
and bank withdrawals have had
notable impact.
On the flip side, however, it
did not bring down the currency
in circulation to the desired
level. A Reserve Bank of India
report said that almost 99 per-
cent of the Rs 3 to 4 lakh crore
black money that was invalidat-
ed returned to the system. Fresh
seizures of black money, which
run into thousands of crores,
prove that the exercise was fu-
tile. The dream of a cashless
economy also lies shattered as
currency with the public has in-
creased to Rs 30.88 lakh crore.
Cash still rules.

D
ongress working
president in Kar-
nataka Satish
Jarkiholi has cre-
ated an avoidable
row with his definition of the
word Hindu. The 60-year-old
billionaire sugar baron from
Belagavi ignited a controver-
sy when he asserted that the
word Hindu has a Persian
origin with a very “dirty”
meaning which will make
Hindus “ashamed”. Jarkiho-
li is a leader of the Scheduled
Tribe Valmiki Nayak com-
munity. Countering BJP’s
claim on Hindutva, Jarkiholi
stated that because of its Per-
sian origin there was no link
between the word Hindu and
India. “How did ‘Hindu’ be-
come yours,” he asked the
BJP. He insisted that a Wiki-
pedia search would confirm
his statement.
That may not be correct as
the Wiki page describes the
word Hindu as being derived
from the river Indus or Sind-
hu which has originated
from Sanskrit and the Indo
Aryan. According to Gavin
Flood who is regarded as an
authority on Hinduism, the
term Hindu “first occurs as a
Persian geographical term
for the people who lived be-
yond the river Indus”.
Jarkiholi alone can ex-
plain his intention for raking
up this controversy when
Karnataka is preparing for
Assembly elections and his
party is on a weak footing.
The immediate fallout could
be on Hindu votes consolidat-
ing behind the BJP at a time
when the powerful Lingayat
community is upset about
the arrest of their chief pon-
tiff in a sexual harassment
case. Lingayats have so far
been the biggest supporters
of the BJP. To control the
damage Randeep Singh Sur-
jewala of the Congress, who
is in-charge of Karnataka,
condemned the remark and
said, “Hinduism is a way
of life…”

Mamata argued, “Formation of

of the benefits of statehood. I
will not allow anyone to divide
Bengal. UT means being at the
mercy of New Delhi and losing
all freedom. But I will not allow
North Bengal or any other part
of Bengal to lose its freedom
and become dependent on New
Delhi.”The longest and most
violent agitation movement in
North Bengal was for a
separate territory for
Gorkhaland which was
resolved following a series of
accords which finally saw the
setting up of Gorkhaland
territorial Administration
he politically heart-burning
issue of dividing the state
further into Union Territo-
ries seems to die. The “ghost”
returns to haunt, it seems.
Triggering a controversy
(again), Ananta Rai, who has
been demanding a separate
Cooch Behar comprising
parts of north Bengal, on Fri-
day met Union Minister of
state for Home affairs Nisith
Pramanik and said the crea-
tion of a new Union Territo-
ry is only a matter of time.
Rai who leads a faction of
the Greater Cooch Behar had
an hour-long meeting with
Pramanik in Bhetaguri town
of Cooch Behar district. “I
believe it (new Union Terri-
tory) will happen soon. I can-
not comment on the time and
date. But you can be rest as-
sured that the new union ter-
ritory of Cooch Behar is only
a matter of time,” Rai told
reporters after the meeting.
Asked about Rai’s com-
ments regarding union terri-
tory, Pramanik, the MP of
Cooch Behar constituency,
said, “I will comment on it
when the time comes.” Rai’s
organisation Greater Cooch
Beharhasbeendemandingan
independentstatecomprising
Cooch Behar and several oth-
er districts in the northern
part of West Bengal.
His remark drew a sharp
retort from the ruling Trina-
mool Congress which said it
would never allow the divi-
sion of West Bengal. “They
can hold as many meetings
as they want or say whatever
they feel like. But there will
be no division of West Ben-
gal,” TMC leader and North
Bengal Development Minis-
ter Udayan Guha said.
THE GEOGRAPHY
North Bengal, with its eight
districts including pictur-
esque Darjeeling, is both eco-
nomically important for West
Bengal as it houses the mon-
ey-minting tea, timber and
tourism industries. The re-
gion is also strategically im-
portant for the country for its
Siliguri corridor, commonly
known as ‘chicken neck’, as it
connects the North Eastern
states with the rest of India.
The region, which shares a
border with Nepal, Bhutan
and Bangladesh, has wit-
nessed several violent state-
hood movements since the
early eighties by various eth-
nic groups such as Gorkhas,
Rajbanshis, Koch and
Kamatapuri communities.
The BJP’s Alipurduar MP
John Barla and MLAs of Mat-
igara-Naxalbari and Dab-
gram-Phulbari seats, Anan-
damay Barman and Shikha
Chatterjee respectively, have
demanded that a Union terri-
tory be carved out of North
Bengal districts. BJP MLA
from Kurseong Bishnu Pras-
ad Sharma last year had writ-
ten to BJP national president
J P Nadda demanding separa-
tion of Darjeeling Hills from
West Bengal.
FOR SOME TIME
This demand for carving out
a Union Territory compris-
ing North Bengal districts
out of Bengal, made by two
BJP MPs from the region in
July 2021 had sparked off a
sharp reaction with the rul-
ing TMC with party Supremo
Mamata Banerjee stating she
would not allow any part of
Bengal to lose its freedom
and be dependant on the na-
tional capital.
Barla had told news agency
PTI in a telephonic conversa-
tion, “I made the demand that
there have been movements
here for a separate Kamtapu-
ri, a greater Cooch Behar and
for Gorkhaland. My belief is
that North Bengal should be
detached and made into a
separate union territory
.”
The MP who has earlier led
an agitation for an autono-
mous tribal area in the last
decade, said small states per-
form better. North Bengal is
neglected, it also faces secu-
rity issues. Our economy is
affected, tea gardens are be-
ing shut down. We will be bet-
ter off as a Union territory
.
Barla, said that he along
with others from the region
would be meeting both Prime
Minister Narendra Modi and
the Union Home Minister
Amit Shah on this issue as
well as would raise it in Par-
liament. BJP has four MPs
from the region and at least
one of them Jayanta Roy
from Jalpaiguri said that
though Barlas comments
were made in his personal
capacity, he supported them.
DIFFERENCE OF OPINION?
However, Dilip Ghosh had
said his party does not have
any such agenda. “None of
our officials has said any
such thing,” he had said,
claiming that attempts were
being made by the TMC to
malign the BJP by raking up
various issues. “I want to
make it clear that the BJP
has no such agenda to divide
Bengal or create a different
state,” Ghosh had said.
The Trinamool Congress
had come out strongly de-
spite BJP’s denials. CM
Mamata Banerjee had said,
“They should be ashamed af-
ter their humiliating loss in
the elections but, instead,
they are trying to divide Ben-
gal. In whose interest are
they trying to split Bengal?”

Ahmedabad (PTI):
Ahead of the upcoming
Gujarat Assembly polls,
senior Congress leader
P Chidambaram on
Tuesday hit out at the
BJP over its arro-
gance, saying no one so
far has apologised or
resigned for the Morbi
bridge collapse tragedy
which claimed 135 lives.
Chidambaram, who
washeretocampaignfor
his party
, also claimed
that Gujarat was being
“run from Delhi” and
not by the CM of state.
The Gujarat polls will
be held in two phases on
December 1 and 5 and
the counting of votes
will be taken up on De-
cember 8. On October
30, a suspension bridge
on the Machchuu river
in Gujarat’s Morbi dis-
trict collapsed, claim-
ing 135 lives.
Chidambaram said,
“As per my knowledge
nobody has apologised
or resigned for such a
big tragedy. This is due
to the BJP's arrogance.
If such a thing would
have happened in a for-
eign country, there
would have been imme-
diate resignations.”

other field activities
had come to a halt.
The home ministry
added that the people
will be able to update
the NPR data them-
selves. No documents or
biometrics will be col-
lected during the upda-
tion. The Central gov-
ernment has approved
a budget of Rs 3,941
crore for the same.
The report stated that
the NPR has been pre-
pared under various
provisions of the Citi-
zenship Rules, 2003
made under the Citizen-
ship Act, 1955.
The name, gender,
date of birth, place of
birth, place of resi-
dence, father’s and
mother’s name were up-
dated and Aadhaar
number, mobile number
and ration card num-
bers were collected. The
ministry said that the
register needs to be up-
dated to include the
changes due to births,
deaths and migration.
The NPR was pre-
pared in 2010 and was
updated in 2015. Several
politicalpartiesopposed
it and alleged that it was
a step towards making
the National Register of
Citizens (NRC).
According to the re-
port, from April 1, 2021
to December 31, 2021, a
toatl of 1,414 people
across the country were
provided certificates of

New Delhi (Agencies):
Six years after Prime
Minister Narendra
Modi’s demonetisation
experiment, some com-
mentators and econo-
mists are now citing
strong growth in Goods
 Services Tax (GST)
collections to claim that
demonetisation was a
success, or at least not
the disaster it was pur-
ported to be. Apparent-
ly, 23 quarters after de-
monetisation, last quar-
ter’s strong GST collec-
tions are evidence of
increasing formalisa-
tion of India’s economy
and hence, the fulfil-
ment of demonetisa-
tion’s stated goals. This
is as bizarre as former
US President Donald
Trump claiming in No-
vember 2018 that since
it was among the cold-
est months on record in
America, global warm-
ing and climate change
are a hoax.
Modi’s cherished ob-
jective of demonetisa-
tion was the elimination
of black money
. While
black money is a collo-
quial term with no pre-
cise definition, it is gen-
erally acknowledged as
untaxed money
. Such
unaccounted money is
typically used to buy
real estate, gold, luxury
goods, etc. and only a
very small fraction is
stored as cash. If there
is a reduction in overall
black money in the
economy, it should logi-
cally be reflected as
higher tax collections.
Black money may be
routed as income or con-
sumption expenditure
or as business loans.
Chandigarh (PTI):
Scores of devotees
thronged gurudwaras
in Punjab, Haryana and
Chandigarh on Tues-
day to mark the 553rd
birth anniversary of
Guru Nanak Dev, the
founder of Sikhism.
Devotees reached
shrines, including the
Golden Temple in Am-
ritsar, Sultanpur Lodhi
inKapurthalaandNada
Sahib in Panchkula to
pay obeisance.
In Punjab, devotees
thronged gurudwaras
in major cities — Ludhi-
ana, Jalandhar, Bathin-
da, Mohali and Anand-
pur Sahib. In Haryana,
gurudwaras in Kuruk-
shetra, Ambala, Sirsa,
Karnal and Yamunana-
gar also witnessed huge
crowds for Gurpurab.
People of different
faiths also queued in
line to witness the cele-
brations at gurudwaras,
which were tastefully
decorated for the occa-
sion. They also offered
prayers and listened to
‘shabad kirtans’.
The first Sikh guru
was born at Nankana
Sahib near Lahore (now
in Pakistan) in 1469.
Devotees also of-
fered prayers at the his-
toric Gurudwara Ber
Sahib in Sultanpur Lo-
dhi in Punjab.
Guru Nanak Dev is
believed to have stayed
at Sultanpur Lodhi for
over 14 years and at-
tained enlightenment
after taking a bath in
the Kali Bein. The
first Sikh master used
to meditate under a
‘ber’ tree.

Rs 100 crore in unac-

transactions and a total
of 16 bank lockers have
been put under re-
straint after a series of
search and seizure ac-
tions on 50 premises in
various states.These
raids were done on a few
business groups en-
gaged in coal trading/
transportation, execu-
tion of civil contracts,
extraction of iron ore
and production of
sponge iron on Novem-

ates. The searches were
carried out at more than
50 premises spread over
Ranchi, Godda, Bermo,
Dumka, Jamshedpur,
Chaibasa, Patna, Guru-
gram and Kolkata.
The operation has led
to the seizure of a large
number of incriminat-
ing documents and digi-
tal evidence. A prelimi-
nary analysis of this
evidence indicated that
these groups have re-
sorted to various modus
operandi of tax evasion
including inflation of

of loans in cash, pay-
ments/receipts in cash
and suppression of pro-

ANNIVERSARY:
CONG DEMANDS
WHITE PAPER
FROM MODI GOVT
New Delhi (PTI): The
Congress on Tuesday al-
leged that demonetisation
was independent India’s
“greatest organised loot”
and demanded a white paper
from the Modi government
on the 2016 move. Address-
ing a press conference on
the sixth anniversary of
demonetisation at the AICC
headquarters here, Congress
leader Gourav Vallabh said
PM Modi had surprised all
by declaring that currency
notes of Rs 500 and Rs
1,000 were being scrapped
on this day in 2016 and
the decision triggered
“panic, creating unspeakable
problems linked to cash and
destroying countless small
and medium businesses”.

Mumbai: Exactly six years after PM Narendra Modi
had announced the demonetisation that left the Indian
economy crippled, the govt has still not been able to jus-
tify that “blunder”, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP)
said here on Tuesday. The Congress also took a swipe
at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party at the Centre on the
move six years ago, on November 8, 2016, terming it as
a “cruel” blow inflicted on the common man of India.

New Delhi: The Na-

joint committee of the

sideration of its im-
pact on the wildlife and
the ecosystem.
The bench headed by
Tribunal Chairperson
Justice Adarsh Kumar
Goel in an order passed
on November 7, said,
“it appears to be diffi-
cult to rule out the pos-
sibility of disturbing
the wildlife and eco-
system by such a large
event close to the Tiger
Reserve. An informed
decision in such a mat-
ter by the statutory
regulator is necessary
in absence of any ex-
press permission when
the event is within 10
kms of the Tiger Re-
serve.”
It is difficult to ac-
cept that such events
have no relevance for
the protection of wild-
life. No evaluation has
been undertaken by
any statutory regula-
tor or even by the event
organiser that it will
have no adverse impact
on the wildlife, NGT
added.
The NGT further
said that it is well
known that Ranthamb-
hore Tiger Reserve is
an eco-sensitive zone.

How much is his deal?
Rs 5,000 crore happened
or more or less, tell that.
When such a big allega-
tion is made, is this charge
less? A political party that
is in government in Punjab,
is in government in Delhi
and is trying to break into
Gandhi’s state. Tell who
contacted you? Why don’t
they disclose? How many
crores deal did you do or
tried to do?
years ago,
when you
used to study
in school,
did you ever
thought that
one day you would reach
such heights?
JP Nadda: No, I had never
thought along these lines
and I don’t usually think
much about myself. What-
ever responsibilities I
would be given or the envi-
ronment I would be in, I
would shape myself ac-
cordingly. So, I had not
thought of this, but cir-
cumstances became such
that I entered the political
field, where I had the
chance to carry out several
responsibilities and I make
the effort to ensure that I
give my best always.
 I heard somewhere
that your mother asked
you not to join politics?
Yes. See every mother is ap-
prehensive and considers
politics to be akin to risk-
takingandtheyareworried
about the future of their
child. My mother was in-
clined towards education
and was extremely under-
standing so when I tried to
convince her, she agreed.
Myfatheralwayslistenedto
reasonafterwhichhewould
give go ahead on sound log-
ic. So, I did a lot of things
wherein, they completely
supported me. Like for ex-
ample, no father would give
their child permission to
swim across the Ganga, but
he permitted me and said
cross it if you can. So, I
crossed Ganga six times in
Patna. He used to look out
for me using binoculars
since Ganga’s swell is im-
menseandthebanksarefar
off.Wehadagroupof about
a dozen people where one
person would always carry
a tube with them so that in
case of need, it can be used.
If you do it properly
, then it
would take 45 minutes to
reach the other bank, but at
times, people get carried
over by the strong current
of the stream so at times, it
even takes over an hour to
reach the bank.
 So seated in Delhi,
don’t you miss Pat-
na and Shimla?
Definitely
, old mem-
ories are refreshed,
and when I get
time, I meet
oldfriendstoo.
And when I
visit Patna, I
sometimes visit my college
andschool.Mypoliticallife,
public life, or student life
began in Shimla. I learnt
student activism here. I
graspeditthere(Patna),but
it was here (Shimla) that I
activated it and came up as
an activist. I would want
you to visit this University
,
where about 4,000-5,000 peo-
ple live here like a family
.
Dayscholarsareless.There
are a few shops there too
like Panditji’s tea shop and
Thakur Dhaba. So during
myrecentvisitafterseveral
years, I met them also.
Thakur Sahab has grown
old now, but I spoke to him
overphoneandrequestedto
come to Dhaba to which he
agreed.
 Elections are going to
be held in Himachal and
Amit Shah had said
that Gujarat is Modiji’s
‘Janma-bhoomi,’ but
Himachal has been his
‘Karma-bhoomi’. What’s
your take on this?
See, When Modiji became
General Secretary and the
first assignment that he
took was of North-India
and states like Haryana,
Punjab, Himachal  JK
were under him and his
‘Centre’ was Chandigarh.
And Modiji has been ha-
bitual of working system-
atically since the begin-
ning so he started making
rounds, had set up the or-
ganisation and in a short
period, he gave voice to
BJP in this region and
made it a powerful party
.
 That means you must
have had regular inter-
action with Modiji at
that time?
Yes, I was the LoP then.
When I was the National
President of Yuva Morcha,
I used to stay in Delhi
and he used to work
as National General
Secretary
. He had an
immense interest in
youth and
used to guide
the activities
of Yuva Mor-
cha. So, it was
then that the contact grew
and I got to work with him.
But soon after I came back
here (Himachal) and con-
tested the polls and became
the LoP, it was then that he
came to Himachal as State
in- charge and so this is
how I got a chance to work
with him.
 Once a government
had also fallen and then
you formed govern-
ment...
Yes, under his leadership,
we formed government in
Punjab, Himachal Pradesh
and Haryana.
 Recently PM Modi
came to Bilaspur, you
were also there and a
huge crowd has assem-
bled for the rally. Does it
mean even today he has
huge popularity
amongst the masses?
Yes, apart from popularity,
there is a special bond and
people from Himachal con-
sider him their own, be-
cause he has toured so
much on the grassroots
level and established con-
nections with households.
People know him here like
their own and there would
be individuals saying
Modiji sat here and spoke
to people or that he ate food
at this house or that Modiji
chaired a ‘Baithak’ here
and so many people attend-
ed that meeting. When we
come to Shimla everyone
says that Modiji used to sit
in this coffee house and
used to gauge the political
atmosphere talking with
journalists here and inter-
acting with them. So, the
journos from that time
know him and Modiji too
knows them. And what
then happens is that people
hear from others and there
are several of his pictures
from Mall Road area and
the people who accompa-
nied him in those pics also
say that they spent time
with Modiji. Recently, I
chaired a meeting and a
party worker asked me if I
remembered the ‘Baithak’
that Modiji chaired and I
said I do remember.
 So the election is being
contested on PM Modi’s
face?
Modiji is the biggest per-
sonality in not just the
party but the entire nation,
and he has also established
himself across the world
and it is our good fortune
that he is a soldier of BJP.
So, if any elections are to
happen, it is obvious that
he too would be a part of it.
And even you know that
the amount of interest he
takes in administrating
and running the govern-
ment, he takes a similar
interest in the organisation
as well. He also makes all
effort to take the organisa-
tional work forward. And
hence, when elections
occur, he carried out
the work required
of him in the best
manner possi-
ble and as a
result, the
party gets
strength-
ened.
 There was a time when
he was addressed as
‘Pracharak Se PM’ and
now we have seen a dif-
ferent spiritual side of
him and now people say
that he has transformed
from ‘PM to Adhyatm-
Guru.’ This is a new
side of his that has come
fore, which has become
extremely popular. What
do you think about this?
Well, he has been spiritual-
ly inclined since the very
beginning. Although, he
does not talk much about
his spiritual journey
, but a
little that we have come
across, we know how he left
homeandrightfromKedar-
nath to many other spiritu-
al centres that he visited
and came in contact with
several spiritual gurus and
masters.AndthensomeGu-
ruji told him that he should
not go towards ‘Sanyas’ but
should work for the society
and that would be your ‘Ta-
pasya.’ So after this, he
came back and became a
‘Pracharak,’ where he
worked and was handed the
political life and quickly
took the work forward. So,
spirituality is deeply in-
grained in him. Now, that
today he is working as
Prime Minister, what we
callasculturalnationalism,
he also tries to put this as-
pect before everyone in a
proper manner. Over some
time, what happened in our
country was that the defini-
tion of secularism was at-
tributed to
the gov-
ernment
not sav-
ing or
s a f e -
guarding
the nation’s
inherent cul-
ture.Butitisnot
so.Itisthegovern-
ment’s job to save
the culture and
to carry it for-
ward. So, to en-
hance the facili-
ties of spiritual
and religious cen-
tres since lakhs
of people visit
these places, Modiji has an
immense interest in this.
So, perhaps people may
have seen a ‘Dharma-Guru’
in him, but in reality
, he has
worked as a ‘Tapasvi’, even
though he is in politics.
 Amit Shah also came
and conducted rallies.
How was the response?
The response has been
great. It has been akin to an
electrifying effect.
 How do you rate
Jairam Thakur as a
Chief Minister?
Jairam Thakur ji is a si-
lent and down-to-earth
worker, and he is an incre-
mentor. He is also success-
ful in implementing ideas
and policies. There is no
two ways about it and eve-
ryone accepts that
Himachal Pradesh can not
work without the Centre’s
blessings. And there is
more than enough bless-
ings of Modiji, and to
bring that down on the
ground, in letter and spir-
it, Jairam Thakur has
played a huge role. Take
the vaccination drive for
example. Over 2,00 crore
doses were administered
across the nation, but first
in administering the first
and second doses as well
has been Himachal. So,
that was implemented by
Jairam Thakur. And I be-
lieve that there is a mas-
sive difference between
implementing this in say
Delhi or any state in the
plains and doing so in the
hills. Just imagine the re-
gions like Lahaul-Spiti,
Malana, Chota Bangal and
such places, where you
may feel like you are in a
different world and taking
the vaccine to the people in
these regions, and ensur-
ing that the optimum tem-
perature required for the
vaccines is also main-
tained, Jairam Thakur has
made Himachal ‘Numero-
Uno’ in this work. So, this
is his silent-worker’ image.
And the people of
Himachal praise a leader,
who works silently, does
not indulge in vengeance
politics and works for the
people.
 There is another
young and upcoming
leader in BJP- Anurag
Thakur...
Anurag Thakur is a young
and energetic leader. He
has been given an impor-
tant responsibility and he
is fulfilling that as IB
Minister and even in the
election too. And handling
the IB Ministry, is a full-
time work since news nev-
er stops, so he too has to
work round the clock along
with that he is the Sports
Minister too and that ac-
tivity also he is handling.
So, he has been given this
responsibility at a young
age and this has become
possible only because of
Modiji’s leadership.
 So Jairam Thakur
and Anurag Thakur,
which Thakur would be
given the reins?
See we are contesting the
election under Jairam
Thakur’s leadership and
the final call is taken by the
Parliamentary Board. But
yes, we are going ahead in
the state keeping Jairam
Thakur as the leader.

JAIPUR, WEDNESDAY,
NOVEMBER 9, 2022
y favourite artist
once said, “I
dream of
p a i n t i n g
and then I
paint my
dream.” And
now I think
that design-
ers these days
must have
taken inspira-
tion and have started
carving his golden
words on their canvases.
It is believed that fashion
is a form of body art and a
component of visual cul-
ture. Due to this, numer-
ous well-known fashion
designers from over the
world have created stun-
ning collections that are
inspiredbyarttrends.His-
tory has seen a strong re-
lationship between fash-
ion and art. For their col-
lections, several fashion
designers have taken in-
spiration from art move-
ments,allowingustoview
fashion as a kind of art.
The art mostly helps us
convey our thoughts and
visions. Here are a few
pieces of wearable art cre-
ated by 20th-century fash-
ion visionaries as an ele-
gant monument to the his-
tory of art.
MADELEINE VIONNET:
The talented artist Mad-
ame Vionnet commonly
knownas‘Thearchitectof
dressmakers’ was bedaz-
zled by the art and culture
of the Greek and Roman
civilizations and inspired
by ancient goddesses and
statues. Based on these
artworks, she shaped her
style aesthetic and com-
bined elements of Greek
sculpture and architec-
ture to give a new dimen-
sion to the female body
.
With her master skill of
draping and bias-cutting
dresses, she revolution-
ized modern fashion.
VALENTINO AND
HIERONYMUS BOSCH
Pierpaolo Piccioli is the
main designer of Valenti-
no. He wanted to connect
the late ’70s punk culture
withhumanismandmedi-
eval art, so he went back
to his roots and the Re-
naissance, finding inspi-
ration in Hieronymus
Bosch’s painting The Gar-
den of Earthly Delights.
His entire collection is
interpreted as an allego-
ry for sin.
DOLCE  GABBANA
AND THE BAROQUE
OF PETER PAUL
RUBENS
Peter Paul Rubens
besmeared women
masterfully
, ‘with love,
scholarship and dili-
gence.’ His art mostly
talks about Venus and
sexual desires, and his
concept of ‘colours are
more important than
lines,” influenced several
fashion designers includ-
ing Dolce  Gabbana.
The Baroque style devi-
ated from the spirit of
the Renaissance aban-
doned peacefulness and
smoothness and pur-
sued instead ele-
gance, excite-
ment, and
movement.
M
PERCEPTION OF TRUTH
The pure expressions of human emotions,
creative skills and imaginations in a visual form
such as paintings or sculpture, producing works
to be relished for their beauty or emotional power
is called Art. City First brings to some
flabbergasting works of art!

NEP-2020: DRAFT NATIONAL CREDIT FRAMEWORK
CREDITISATION OF LEARNING
CREDITISATION OF LEARNING
WILL PROVE TO BE A
WILL PROVE TO BE A
GAME CHANGER
GAME CHANGER
cademic insti-
tutions viz….
UGC, AICTE/
N C V E T ,
NIOS,NCERT,
Ministry of
E d u c a t i o n
and Ministry of Skill
Development have
jointly prepared a
draft ‘National Credit
Framework’. It will
prove to be a game
changer as the frame-
work is holistic, inte-
grative, flexible, realis-
tic and comprehen-
sive. The framework
claims creditisation of
all learnings, assign-
ments, accumulation,
storage, transfer and
redemption of credit
will mandatorily sub-
ject to assessment.
Credit for Academics
accompanied by voca-
tional and experiential
learning has been for
the first time has been
quantified in an inte-
grative manner. This
will include classes,
laboratory work,
sports and games,
yoga, physical activi-
ties, performing art,
social work, field sits,
NCC, training and
skills, on-the-job train-
ing internship, ap-
prenticeship etc.
SALIENT FEATURES
The framework will
also take care of the
equivalence between
vocational and general
education. Besides, it
enables mobility and
storage of credits
through ‘The Academ-
ic Bank of Credit’. In
addition, it determines
pathways for multiple
entry and exit oppor-
tunities for students.
The framework of-
fers not only freedom
to choose learning tra-
jectories by students
and career choices but
also incorporates mid-
way correction and
modification mecha-
nisms as per students’
talent and interest. Ex-
tensive use of technol-
ogy and innovative ac-
cess and opportunities
for DIVYANGS are
special features of this
framework. In this
framework exams will
no more be yearend ap-
praise of the act of god
but the continuous and
multi-pronged real-
time assessment of
learning measured in
terms of internalized
capabilities are addi-
tional salient features
of the framework. The
obsession that grades
are equal to learning
will go now.
BENEFITS OF CREDIT
FRAMEWORK
Integration of aca-
demic, vocational and
experiential learning.
Vertical and hori-
zontal mobility of stu-
dents.
Removal of the need
for equivalence certifi-
cation
Provision of credit
transfer.
Encourage the ex-
change of internation-
al students.
Faculty with foreign
universities.
Formal education
and learning ecosys-
tem.
Learning through
family inheritance- in-
formal knowledge
skills.
Removal of hard
separation between
general and vocational
education.
Enables special as-
sessment criteria for
Divyang students.
There is the provi-
sion of National learn-
ing hours in which a
student will be re-
quired 1200 hours per
year to earn 40 credits.
Learning 1200 hours
per year will thus man-
datorily be subject to
rigorous assessment
for academic provi-
sion. Assessment bend
1to 8 for vocational ed-
ucation, 4 for school
education, 4.5 to 6 for
under graduation, 6 to
7 for post-graduation
and 8 for PhD have
been determined by
the framework.
The proposed credit
system will take into
account the learning
hours put in by a
learner irrespective
of stream of educa-
tion (General or Voca-
tional)
CHALLENGES AHEAD
Implementing Nation-
al Credit Framework
may prove to be a game
changer in education
and there will be a par-
adigm shift. The shift
is towards outcome-
basedlearning,achiev-
ing learning objec-
tives, course objec-
tives, and programme
objectives have to be
achieved which will be
based on the quantum
of learning on the one
hand (1200 National
Learning Hours rigor-
ous continuous per
year to earn 40 credits)
and mandatory assess-
ment of the quantum
of learning or credit
earned for the academ-
ic profession.
IT HAS BEEN LAUDED
THAT THERE WILL BE
CREDITISATION FOR
WHAT MATTERS.
Blurring the
boundaries between
academics and voca-
tional skills steam is a
welcome measure but
it would be very diffi-
cult to implement. Es-
pecially educational
institutions having an
infrastructural gap
and delivering spe-
cialized professional
courses only will find
it difficult to imple-
ment.
Implementing the
idea of the Academic
Bank of credits (ABC)
a digital storehouse
that contains the in-
formation of all the
credits earned by the
students which enable
the students to study
across the HEI has
many pros and cons
before it gets imple-
mented. If a student
studies in the first
year in one HEI and
breaks his studies af-
ter the break. He
wants to join another
HEI in the second year
his/her f credit
earned the first year
will be stored in ABC.
It may prove to be dif-
ficult for the student
to cope as courses of-
fered in another HEI
(Higher Education In-
stitution) may be dif-
ferent. It will affect
the organized and sys-
tematic structure of
learning among HEI.
Framework ap-
plauds about crediti-
sation of what mat-
ters viz… critical
thinking, problem-
solving, holistic devel-
opment and citizen-
ship values. It affirms
the generalization of
education in the name
of holistic education
but to achieve specific
customized skills.
Sometimes we need to
focus on specialized
learning rather than
generalized learning.
There are challeng-
es to assessment and
evaluation in this
framework. HEIs
would need to evolve
new vibrant and crea-
tive methods of as-
sessment and evalua-
tion of integrated
kinds of learning as
learning 1200 Nation-
al learning hours will
need a variety of as-
sessment criteria. Ac-
ademics, vocational
and experiential
learning can not be as-
sessed with uniform
measures.
It has been said that
specialised assess-
ment measures will be
used for Divyang stu-
dents but it has not
been clear whether as-
sessment measures
for them will be less
cumbersome for them
as compared o normal
students. However,
this is a special fea-
ture which showed us
welcomes as it has
been at least thought
off for the first time in
a policy document.
The framework
gives more focus on
those courses having
the highest future
linkages. The country
needs to identify and
create these courses
which are future-
linked and hence can
employ youth in large
numbers. Framework
expects to create em-
ployable, productive,
inventive and respon-
sible global citizens.
Finally, it has been
said that this frame-
work shall act as a
broad enabling frame-
work rather than a
regulation. It is be-
lieved that NCRF will
enable the transfor-
mation of India by
providing HEIs with a
greater opportunity to
integrate effective
skills to reap the ben-
efits of youth divi-
dends and future
skills linkages.

About 40,000 air passen- gers have increased compared to the previ- ous month. This has been the highest num- ber of air passengers in a month in this finan- cial year. The festivals are believed to be the reason behind this. In October, air pas- senger traffic started increasing on Navratri and Dussehra followed by Diwali. Besides, the beginning of the tour- ist season also in- creased passengers. Air travellers from Jaipur are also increasing.

SPIRITUAL SPEAK You have a right to perform your prescribed duties, but you are not entitled to the fruits of your actions. —Bhagavad Gita IN-DEPTH DEMONETISATION: BLACK MONEY KEEPS TUMBLING OUT AND CASH STILL RULES emonetisation hap- pened six years ago but not a year has passed without a re- view of its conse- quences on the quantum of liq- uid cash in the market which it was supposed to bring down to curb the circulation of black money and promote digital economy . In the last six years the digital economy has indeed made much progress with con- sumers and traders finding it more convenient. Stringent up- per limits for cash transactions and bank withdrawals have had notable impact. On the flip side, however, it did not bring down the currency in circulation to the desired level. A Reserve Bank of India report said that almost 99 per- cent of the Rs 3 to 4 lakh crore black money that was invalidat- ed returned to the system. Fresh seizures of black money, which run into thousands of crores, prove that the exercise was fu- tile. The dream of a cashless economy also lies shattered as currency with the public has in- creased to Rs 30.88 lakh crore. Cash still rules. TOP TWEETS D ongress working president in Kar- nataka Satish Jarkiholi has cre- ated an avoidable row with his definition of the word Hindu. The 60-year-old billionaire sugar baron from Belagavi ignited a controver- sy when he asserted that the word Hindu has a Persian origin with a very “dirty” meaning which will make Hindus “ashamed”. Jarkiho- li is a leader of the Scheduled Tribe Valmiki Nayak com- munity. Countering BJP’s claim on Hindutva, Jarkiholi stated that because of its Per- sian origin there was no link between the word Hindu and India. “How did ‘Hindu’ be- come yours,” he asked the BJP. He insisted that a Wiki- pedia search would confirm his statement. That may not be correct as the Wiki page describes the word Hindu as being derived from the river Indus or Sind- hu which has originated from Sanskrit and the Indo Aryan. According to Gavin Flood who is regarded as an authority on Hinduism, the term Hindu “first occurs as a Persian geographical term for the people who lived be- yond the river Indus”. Jarkiholi alone can ex- plain his intention for raking up this controversy when Karnataka is preparing for Assembly elections and his party is on a weak footing. The immediate fallout could be on Hindu votes consolidat- ing behind the BJP at a time when the powerful Lingayat community is upset about the arrest of their chief pon- tiff in a sexual harassment case. Lingayats have so far been the biggest supporters of the BJP. To control the damage Randeep Singh Sur- jewala of the Congress, who is in-charge of Karnataka, condemned the remark and said, “Hinduism is a way of life…” AN AVOIDABLE ROW OVER ‘HINDU’ TERM The 60-year-old billionaire sugar baron from Belagavi ignited a controversy when he asserted that the word Hindu has a Persian origin with a very “dirty” meaning which will make Hindus “ashamed” C Promoted by Suvasa Apparel and Furnishing Pvt. Ltd. Mamata argued, “Formation of a Union territory takes away a people’s rights as it denies them of the benefits of statehood. I will not allow anyone to divide Bengal. UT means being at the mercy of New Delhi and losing all freedom. But I will not allow North Bengal or any other part of Bengal to lose its freedom and become dependent on New Delhi.”The longest and most violent agitation movement in North Bengal was for a separate territory for Gorkhaland which was resolved following a series of accords which finally saw the setting up of Gorkhaland territorial Administration he politically heart-burning issue of dividing the state further into Union Territo- ries seems to die. The “ghost” returns to haunt, it seems. Triggering a controversy (again), Ananta Rai, who has been demanding a separate Cooch Behar comprising parts of north Bengal, on Fri- day met Union Minister of state for Home affairs Nisith Pramanik and said the crea- tion of a new Union Territo- ry is only a matter of time. Rai who leads a faction of the Greater Cooch Behar had an hour-long meeting with Pramanik in Bhetaguri town of Cooch Behar district. “I believe it (new Union Terri- tory) will happen soon. I can- not comment on the time and date. But you can be rest as- sured that the new union ter- ritory of Cooch Behar is only a matter of time,” Rai told reporters after the meeting. Asked about Rai’s com- ments regarding union terri- tory, Pramanik, the MP of Cooch Behar constituency, said, “I will comment on it when the time comes.” Rai’s organisation Greater Cooch Beharhasbeendemandingan independentstatecomprising Cooch Behar and several oth- er districts in the northern part of West Bengal. His remark drew a sharp retort from the ruling Trina- mool Congress which said it would never allow the divi- sion of West Bengal. “They can hold as many meetings as they want or say whatever they feel like. But there will be no division of West Ben- gal,” TMC leader and North Bengal Development Minis- ter Udayan Guha said. THE GEOGRAPHY North Bengal, with its eight districts including pictur- esque Darjeeling, is both eco- nomically important for West Bengal as it houses the mon- ey-minting tea, timber and tourism industries. The re- gion is also strategically im- portant for the country for its Siliguri corridor, commonly known as ‘chicken neck’, as it connects the North Eastern states with the rest of India. The region, which shares a border with Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh, has wit- nessed several violent state- hood movements since the early eighties by various eth- nic groups such as Gorkhas, Rajbanshis, Koch and Kamatapuri communities. The BJP’s Alipurduar MP John Barla and MLAs of Mat- igara-Naxalbari and Dab- gram-Phulbari seats, Anan- damay Barman and Shikha Chatterjee respectively, have demanded that a Union terri- tory be carved out of North Bengal districts. BJP MLA from Kurseong Bishnu Pras- ad Sharma last year had writ- ten to BJP national president J P Nadda demanding separa- tion of Darjeeling Hills from West Bengal. FOR SOME TIME This demand for carving out a Union Territory compris- ing North Bengal districts out of Bengal, made by two BJP MPs from the region in July 2021 had sparked off a sharp reaction with the rul- ing TMC with party Supremo Mamata Banerjee stating she would not allow any part of Bengal to lose its freedom and be dependant on the na- tional capital. Barla had told news agency PTI in a telephonic conversa- tion, “I made the demand that there have been movements here for a separate Kamtapu- ri, a greater Cooch Behar and for Gorkhaland. My belief is that North Bengal should be detached and made into a separate union territory .” The MP who has earlier led an agitation for an autono- mous tribal area in the last decade, said small states per- form better. North Bengal is neglected, it also faces secu- rity issues. Our economy is affected, tea gardens are be- ing shut down. We will be bet- ter off as a Union territory . Barla, said that he along with others from the region would be meeting both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Union Home Minister Amit Shah on this issue as well as would raise it in Par- liament. BJP has four MPs from the region and at least one of them Jayanta Roy from Jalpaiguri said that though Barlas comments were made in his personal capacity, he supported them. DIFFERENCE OF OPINION? However, Dilip Ghosh had said his party does not have any such agenda. “None of our officials has said any such thing,” he had said, claiming that attempts were being made by the TMC to malign the BJP by raking up various issues. “I want to make it clear that the BJP has no such agenda to divide Bengal or create a different state,” Ghosh had said. The Trinamool Congress had come out strongly de- spite BJP’s denials. CM Mamata Banerjee had said, “They should be ashamed af- ter their humiliating loss in the elections but, instead, they are trying to divide Ben- gal. In whose interest are they trying to split Bengal?” THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL T ROBIN ROY The writer is Senior Journalist and former Managing Editor, First India Rai who leads a faction of the Greater Cooch Behar had an hour-long meeting with Pramanik in Bhetaguri town of Cooch Behar district. “I believe it (new Union Territory) will happen soon. I cannot comment on the time and date. But you can be rest assured that the new union territory of Cooch Behar is only a matter of time,” Rai told reporters after the meeting BENGAL PARTITION, AGAIN?

New Delhi (Agencies): Six years after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation experiment, some com- mentators and econo- mists are now citing strong growth in Goods Services Tax (GST) collections to claim that demonetisation was a success, or at least not the disaster it was pur- ported to be. Apparent- ly, 23 quarters after de- monetisation, last quar- ter’s strong GST collec- tions are evidence of increasing formalisa- tion of India’s economy and hence, the fulfil- ment of demonetisa- tion’s stated goals. This is as bizarre as former US President Donald Trump claiming in No- vember 2018 that since it was among the cold- est months on record in America, global warm- ing and climate change are a hoax. Modi’s cherished ob- jective of demonetisa- tion was the elimination of black money . While black money is a collo- quial term with no pre- cise definition, it is gen- erally acknowledged as untaxed money . Such unaccounted money is typically used to buy real estate, gold, luxury goods, etc. and only a very small fraction is stored as cash. If there is a reduction in overall black money in the economy, it should logi- cally be reflected as higher tax collections. Black money may be routed as income or con- sumption expenditure or as business loans. Chandigarh (PTI): Scores of devotees thronged gurudwaras in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh on Tues- day to mark the 553rd birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism.

The bench headed by Tribunal Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel in an order passed on November 7, said, “it appears to be diffi- cult to rule out the pos- sibility of disturbing the wildlife and eco- system by such a large event close to the Tiger Reserve. An informed decision in such a mat- ter by the statutory regulator is necessary in absence of any ex- press permission when the event is within 10 kms of the Tiger Re- serve.” It is difficult to ac- cept that such events have no relevance for the protection of wild- life. No evaluation has been undertaken by any statutory regula- tor or even by the event organiser that it will have no adverse impact on the wildlife, NGT added.

  • 9. years ago, when you used to study in school, did you ever thought that one day you would reach such heights? JP Nadda: No, I had never thought along these lines and I don’t usually think much about myself. What- ever responsibilities I would be given or the envi- ronment I would be in, I would shape myself ac- cordingly. So, I had not thought of this, but cir- cumstances became such that I entered the political field, where I had the chance to carry out several responsibilities and I make the effort to ensure that I give my best always.  I heard somewhere that your mother asked you not to join politics? Yes. See every mother is ap- prehensive and considers politics to be akin to risk- takingandtheyareworried about the future of their child. My mother was in- clined towards education and was extremely under- standing so when I tried to convince her, she agreed. Myfatheralwayslistenedto reasonafterwhichhewould give go ahead on sound log- ic. So, I did a lot of things wherein, they completely supported me. Like for ex- ample, no father would give their child permission to swim across the Ganga, but he permitted me and said cross it if you can. So, I crossed Ganga six times in Patna. He used to look out for me using binoculars since Ganga’s swell is im- menseandthebanksarefar off.Wehadagroupof about a dozen people where one person would always carry a tube with them so that in case of need, it can be used. If you do it properly , then it would take 45 minutes to reach the other bank, but at times, people get carried over by the strong current of the stream so at times, it even takes over an hour to reach the bank.  So seated in Delhi, don’t you miss Pat- na and Shimla? Definitely , old mem- ories are refreshed, and when I get time, I meet oldfriendstoo. And when I visit Patna, I sometimes visit my college andschool.Mypoliticallife, public life, or student life began in Shimla. I learnt student activism here. I graspeditthere(Patna),but it was here (Shimla) that I activated it and came up as an activist. I would want you to visit this University , where about 4,000-5,000 peo- ple live here like a family . Dayscholarsareless.There are a few shops there too like Panditji’s tea shop and Thakur Dhaba. So during myrecentvisitafterseveral years, I met them also. Thakur Sahab has grown old now, but I spoke to him overphoneandrequestedto come to Dhaba to which he agreed.  Elections are going to be held in Himachal and Amit Shah had said that Gujarat is Modiji’s ‘Janma-bhoomi,’ but Himachal has been his ‘Karma-bhoomi’. What’s your take on this? See, When Modiji became General Secretary and the first assignment that he took was of North-India and states like Haryana, Punjab, Himachal JK were under him and his ‘Centre’ was Chandigarh. And Modiji has been ha- bitual of working system- atically since the begin- ning so he started making rounds, had set up the or- ganisation and in a short period, he gave voice to BJP in this region and made it a powerful party .  That means you must have had regular inter- action with Modiji at that time? Yes, I was the LoP then. When I was the National President of Yuva Morcha, I used to stay in Delhi and he used to work as National General Secretary . He had an immense interest in youth and used to guide the activities of Yuva Mor- cha. So, it was then that the contact grew and I got to work with him. But soon after I came back here (Himachal) and con- tested the polls and became the LoP, it was then that he came to Himachal as State in- charge and so this is how I got a chance to work with him.  Once a government had also fallen and then you formed govern- ment... Yes, under his leadership, we formed government in Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Haryana.  Recently PM Modi came to Bilaspur, you were also there and a huge crowd has assem- bled for the rally. Does it mean even today he has huge popularity amongst the masses? Yes, apart from popularity, there is a special bond and people from Himachal con- sider him their own, be- cause he has toured so much on the grassroots level and established con- nections with households. People know him here like their own and there would be individuals saying Modiji sat here and spoke to people or that he ate food at this house or that Modiji chaired a ‘Baithak’ here and so many people attend- ed that meeting. When we come to Shimla everyone says that Modiji used to sit in this coffee house and used to gauge the political atmosphere talking with journalists here and inter- acting with them. So, the journos from that time know him and Modiji too knows them. And what then happens is that people hear from others and there are several of his pictures from Mall Road area and the people who accompa- nied him in those pics also say that they spent time with Modiji. Recently, I chaired a meeting and a party worker asked me if I remembered the ‘Baithak’ that Modiji chaired and I said I do remember.  So the election is being contested on PM Modi’s face? Modiji is the biggest per- sonality in not just the party but the entire nation, and he has also established himself across the world and it is our good fortune that he is a soldier of BJP. So, if any elections are to happen, it is obvious that he too would be a part of it. And even you know that the amount of interest he takes in administrating and running the govern- ment, he takes a similar interest in the organisation as well. He also makes all effort to take the organisa- tional work forward. And hence, when elections occur, he carried out the work required of him in the best manner possi- ble and as a result, the party gets strength- ened.  There was a time when he was addressed as ‘Pracharak Se PM’ and now we have seen a dif- ferent spiritual side of him and now people say that he has transformed from ‘PM to Adhyatm- Guru.’ This is a new side of his that has come fore, which has become extremely popular. What do you think about this? Well, he has been spiritual- ly inclined since the very beginning. Although, he does not talk much about his spiritual journey , but a little that we have come across, we know how he left homeandrightfromKedar- nath to many other spiritu- al centres that he visited and came in contact with several spiritual gurus and masters.AndthensomeGu- ruji told him that he should not go towards ‘Sanyas’ but should work for the society and that would be your ‘Ta- pasya.’ So after this, he came back and became a ‘Pracharak,’ where he worked and was handed the political life and quickly took the work forward. So, spirituality is deeply in- grained in him. Now, that today he is working as Prime Minister, what we callasculturalnationalism, he also tries to put this as- pect before everyone in a proper manner. Over some time, what happened in our country was that the defini- tion of secularism was at- tributed to the gov- ernment not sav- ing or s a f e - guarding the nation’s inherent cul- ture.Butitisnot so.Itisthegovern- ment’s job to save the culture and to carry it for- ward. So, to en- hance the facili- ties of spiritual and religious cen- tres since lakhs of people visit these places, Modiji has an immense interest in this. So, perhaps people may have seen a ‘Dharma-Guru’ in him, but in reality , he has worked as a ‘Tapasvi’, even though he is in politics.  Amit Shah also came and conducted rallies. How was the response? The response has been great. It has been akin to an electrifying effect.  How do you rate Jairam Thakur as a Chief Minister? Jairam Thakur ji is a si- lent and down-to-earth worker, and he is an incre- mentor. He is also success- ful in implementing ideas and policies. There is no two ways about it and eve- ryone accepts that Himachal Pradesh can not work without the Centre’s blessings. And there is more than enough bless- ings of Modiji, and to bring that down on the ground, in letter and spir- it, Jairam Thakur has played a huge role. Take the vaccination drive for example. Over 2,00 crore doses were administered across the nation, but first in administering the first and second doses as well has been Himachal. So, that was implemented by Jairam Thakur. And I be- lieve that there is a mas- sive difference between implementing this in say Delhi or any state in the plains and doing so in the hills. Just imagine the re- gions like Lahaul-Spiti, Malana, Chota Bangal and such places, where you may feel like you are in a different world and taking the vaccine to the people in these regions, and ensur- ing that the optimum tem- perature required for the vaccines is also main- tained, Jairam Thakur has made Himachal ‘Numero- Uno’ in this work. So, this is his silent-worker’ image. And the people of Himachal praise a leader, who works silently, does not indulge in vengeance politics and works for the people.  There is another young and upcoming leader in BJP- Anurag Thakur... Anurag Thakur is a young and energetic leader. He has been given an impor- tant responsibility and he is fulfilling that as IB Minister and even in the election too. And handling the IB Ministry, is a full- time work since news nev- er stops, so he too has to work round the clock along with that he is the Sports Minister too and that ac- tivity also he is handling. So, he has been given this responsibility at a young age and this has become possible only because of Modiji’s leadership.  So Jairam Thakur and Anurag Thakur, which Thakur would be given the reins? See we are contesting the election under Jairam Thakur’s leadership and the final call is taken by the Parliamentary Board. But yes, we are going ahead in the state keeping Jairam Thakur as the leader. TO BE CONTINUED... BJP CONTESTING UNDER JAIRAM...

It is believed that fashion is a form of body art and a component of visual cul- ture. Due to this, numer- ous well-known fashion designers from over the world have created stun- ning collections that are inspiredbyarttrends.His- tory has seen a strong re- lationship between fash- ion and art. For their col- lections, several fashion designers have taken in- spiration from art move- ments,allowingustoview fashion as a kind of art. The art mostly helps us convey our thoughts and visions. Here are a few pieces of wearable art cre- ated by 20th-century fash- ion visionaries as an ele- gant monument to the his- tory of art. MADELEINE VIONNET: The talented artist Mad- ame Vionnet commonly knownas‘Thearchitectof dressmakers’ was bedaz- zled by the art and culture of the Greek and Roman civilizations and inspired by ancient goddesses and statues. Based on these artworks, she shaped her style aesthetic and com- bined elements of Greek sculpture and architec- ture to give a new dimen- sion to the female body . With her master skill of draping and bias-cutting dresses, she revolution- ized modern fashion. VALENTINO AND HIERONYMUS BOSCH Pierpaolo Piccioli is the main designer of Valenti- no. He wanted to connect the late ’70s punk culture withhumanismandmedi- eval art, so he went back to his roots and the Re- naissance, finding inspi- ration in Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Gar- den of Earthly Delights. His entire collection is interpreted as an allego- ry for sin. DOLCE GABBANA AND THE BAROQUE OF PETER PAUL RUBENS Peter Paul Rubens besmeared women masterfully , ‘with love, scholarship and dili- gence.’ His art mostly talks about Venus and sexual desires, and his concept of ‘colours are more important than lines,” influenced several fashion designers includ- ing Dolce Gabbana. The Baroque style devi- ated from the spirit of the Renaissance aban- doned peacefulness and smoothness and pur- sued instead ele- gance, excite- ment, and movement. M PERCEPTION OF TRUTH The pure expressions of human emotions, creative skills and imaginations in a visual form such as paintings or sculpture, producing works to be relished for their beauty or emotional power is called Art.

YOUR DAY Horoscope by Saurabbh Sachdeva NEP-2020: DRAFT NATIONAL CREDIT FRAMEWORK CREDITISATION OF LEARNING CREDITISATION OF LEARNING WILL PROVE TO BE A WILL PROVE TO BE A GAME CHANGER GAME CHANGER cademic insti- tutions viz…. UGC, AICTE/ N C V E T , NIOS,NCERT, Ministry of E d u c a t i o n and Ministry of Skill Development have jointly prepared a draft ‘National Credit Framework’. It will prove to be a game changer as the frame- work is holistic, inte- grative, flexible, realis- tic and comprehen- sive. The framework claims creditisation of all learnings, assign- ments, accumulation, storage, transfer and redemption of credit will mandatorily sub- ject to assessment. Credit for Academics accompanied by voca- tional and experiential learning has been for the first time has been quantified in an inte- grative manner. This will include classes, laboratory work, sports and games, yoga, physical activi- ties, performing art, social work, field sits, NCC, training and skills, on-the-job train- ing internship, ap- prenticeship etc. SALIENT FEATURES The framework will also take care of the equivalence between vocational and general education. Besides, it enables mobility and storage of credits through ‘The Academ- ic Bank of Credit’. In addition, it determines pathways for multiple entry and exit oppor- tunities for students. The framework of- fers not only freedom to choose learning tra- jectories by students and career choices but also incorporates mid- way correction and modification mecha- nisms as per students’ talent and interest. Ex- tensive use of technol- ogy and innovative ac- cess and opportunities for DIVYANGS are special features of this framework. In this framework exams will no more be yearend ap- praise of the act of god but the continuous and multi-pronged real- time assessment of learning measured in terms of internalized capabilities are addi- tional salient features of the framework. The obsession that grades are equal to learning will go now. BENEFITS OF CREDIT FRAMEWORK Integration of aca- demic, vocational and experiential learning. Vertical and hori- zontal mobility of stu- dents. Removal of the need for equivalence certifi- cation Provision of credit transfer. Encourage the ex- change of internation- al students. Faculty with foreign universities. Formal education and learning ecosys- tem. Learning through family inheritance- in- formal knowledge skills. Removal of hard separation between general and vocational education. Enables special as- sessment criteria for Divyang students. There is the provi- sion of National learn- ing hours in which a student will be re- quired 1200 hours per year to earn 40 credits. Learning 1200 hours per year will thus man- datorily be subject to rigorous assessment for academic provi- sion. Assessment bend 1to 8 for vocational ed- ucation, 4 for school education, 4.5 to 6 for under graduation, 6 to 7 for post-graduation and 8 for PhD have been determined by the framework. The proposed credit system will take into account the learning hours put in by a learner irrespective of stream of educa- tion (General or Voca- tional) CHALLENGES AHEAD Implementing Nation- al Credit Framework may prove to be a game changer in education and there will be a par- adigm shift. The shift is towards outcome- basedlearning,achiev- ing learning objec- tives, course objec- tives, and programme objectives have to be achieved which will be based on the quantum of learning on the one hand (1200 National Learning Hours rigor- ous continuous per year to earn 40 credits) and mandatory assess- ment of the quantum of learning or credit earned for the academ- ic profession. IT HAS BEEN LAUDED THAT THERE WILL BE CREDITISATION FOR WHAT MATTERS. Blurring the boundaries between academics and voca- tional skills steam is a welcome measure but it would be very diffi- cult to implement. Es- pecially educational institutions having an infrastructural gap and delivering spe- cialized professional courses only will find it difficult to imple- ment. Implementing the idea of the Academic Bank of credits (ABC) a digital storehouse that contains the in- formation of all the credits earned by the students which enable the students to study across the HEI has many pros and cons before it gets imple- mented. If a student studies in the first year in one HEI and breaks his studies af- ter the break. He wants to join another HEI in the second year his/her f credit earned the first year will be stored in ABC. It may prove to be dif- ficult for the student to cope as courses of- fered in another HEI (Higher Education In- stitution) may be dif- ferent. It will affect the organized and sys- tematic structure of learning among HEI. Framework ap- plauds about crediti- sation of what mat- ters viz… critical thinking, problem- solving, holistic devel- opment and citizen- ship values. It affirms the generalization of education in the name of holistic education but to achieve specific customized skills. Sometimes we need to focus on specialized learning rather than generalized learning. There are challeng- es to assessment and evaluation in this framework. HEIs would need to evolve new vibrant and crea- tive methods of as- sessment and evalua- tion of integrated kinds of learning as learning 1200 Nation- al learning hours will need a variety of as- sessment criteria. Ac- ademics, vocational and experiential learning can not be as- sessed with uniform measures. It has been said that specialised assess- ment measures will be used for Divyang stu- dents but it has not been clear whether as- sessment measures for them will be less cumbersome for them as compared o normal students. However, this is a special fea- ture which showed us welcomes as it has been at least thought off for the first time in a policy document. The framework gives more focus on those courses having the highest future linkages. The country needs to identify and create these courses which are future- linked and hence can employ youth in large numbers. Framework expects to create em- ployable, productive, inventive and respon- sible global citizens. Finally, it has been said that this frame- work shall act as a broad enabling frame- work rather than a regulation. It is be- lieved that NCRF will enable the transfor- mation of India by providing HEIs with a greater opportunity to integrate effective skills to reap the ben- efits of youth divi- dends and future skills linkages.
