important to specify the terms of reference and engagement Otherwise the risks of getting boxed even before one starts running are high On the NDTV raids I admittedly do not have enough details at my disposal to pronounce a judgment either way as so many others have been quick to do Though I am a qualified Chartered Accountant I lack the insights that some seniors in the profession seem to have on NDTV’s financial structural engineering I am also not privileged with inside information on how NDTV’s editorial policy is decided Therefore my comments are entirely on the basis of what is available in the public domain for a lay observer File image of Prannoy Roy Twitter @PrannoyRoyNDTV Like many of our generation my televisionviewing habits evolved with NDTV as state owned Doordarshan began to slip and look jaded To that extent I compare NDTV with Jet Airways that gave us the first real experience of a professional private airline as Air India (then Indian Airlines) went on a terminal decline While other airlines have come and gone Jet has held on to its ground Similarly NDTV has maintained its identity in the cacophonic TRP bazar of Indian news channels What I do still admire about the editorial line of NDTV is consistency While many of their peers have perforce joined the pack of hyenas as it were NDTV stuck to itsstyle The channelseems to have got the marketing logic right that they would lose their core constituency if they tried to change the product positioning Besides honestly they lacked the capacity and competence to do so A Nidhi Razdan could gently rap a Sambit Patra on her show but you cannot imagine her in combat gear like Navika Kumar or Anjana Kashyap A mild Vikram Chandra can never be a match for the nation’s (nay Republic’s) self-appointed conscience keeper and his several clones on other channels In my professional capacity as a marketer I have put money on NDTV even for some of my recent advertising campaigns This was based on the advice of the media agency and objective assessment of their viewership profile vis-à-vis my target audience Enough disclaimers Having said all that I have not been able to reconcile with certain elements of the last couple of day’s developments Let me answer why First raids on promoters and industrialists by tax or investigative authorities are common Often there is strong reason to suspect that there may be political axe at work such as proximity to previous regimes or favours denied to current powers that be In almost all such cases the employees and professionals in the company are kept out of the picture Owners generally fight their own wars leaving the staff to run the business as usual It is not that in the history of Indian Media there have not been instances of investigation against media houses and those were not just during the Emergency as some are trying to insinuate Generally the trigger of such action has been alleged financial irregularities Two recent examples that come to mind are those of Eenadu and Deccan Chronicle But in neither of these instances does one recall the journalist community instantly jumping into the fray accusing the government of vendetta and assault on the freedom of press In the NDTV case the CBI was at pains to clarify that they did not raid the newsrooms or studios of the TV channel but only the residences of itspromoters The CBI also put up the entire 80-page FIR on the net and held a press conference to present their side of the story But such minor details were of no interest to those who had already made up their mind that this was a premeditated attack against independent media Some even simplistically suggested that the raid was a fall out of a studio spat between a ruling party spokesperson and NDTV anchor a few days ago A lady known for her anti-BJP views tweetedthat she had distinctly heard the spokesperson muttering “dekh loonga” when asked to leave the show However she may be giving more credit to the clout of the junior politician than he deserved Since parallels are being drawn with attacks on the media during the Emergency (when by all accounts the so called “witch hunt” were decidedly ruthless and vicious) one does not recall the owners or management of the media houses fielding their editorial staff to bat against tax enforcement authorities The doyens be it Goenkas Jainsor Sarkars usually fought their own battles keeping the editorial and news teams insulated so that they could carry on with their jobs undeterred A story still fresh in the media circles is about a vernacular newspaper that had taken a very confrontational position with the state government The government cut its revenue streams by stopping all state advertisement to the paper and there were murmurs about an arrest warrant against the owner-editor To his credit the iconic personality decided to step down rather than be cowed under pressure The golden tenet of media operations is the traditional “Chinese Wall” between management and editorial to ensure content integrity Therefore to put editorial staff in front to bat for the management or promoters goes against that very same principle ABengali historian from Columbia University obviously stretched a point by comparing the army chief with General Dyer responsible for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre But putting journalists in front — for charges of financial impropriety against promoters — does appear a bit unbecoming of a channel that has been a vocal critic of the army using civilians as shields It may also be argued that by allowing themselves to be drawn into a legal fight that ought to be left to the promoters and management with the authorities the journalists are running the risk of diluting their own professional standing personal brand and credibility It is entirely possible that nothing will come out of these investigations and the NDTV promoters will come out squeaky clean after the probe That will be the real moment of vindication for them and the channel Before this NDTV had raised similar alarm about freedom to report when the government had pulled them up for their coverage of the Pathankot Attack They were successful in making the ministry backtrack on their order However reactions of the British government to unauthorised leaks after the Manchester concert tragedy underscores that the concerns of the government were not totally misplaced The NDTV has so far been seen to be in the media race for the “long haul” But by protesting too much and too early they are showing signs of being jittery and nervous That may not suit the otherwise cool as cucumber persona of its founders and the dignified image of the channel that it had assiduously cultivated over the years If NDTV is confident of their position both legally and morally they should let the law take its own course and continue on their chosen editorial path leaving it to posterity and the viewers to decide on their innocence and commitment to fearless journalism The author tweets @SandipGhose Written by Manish Sabharwal | Published: May 1 2015 12:23 am The land market crisis is actually a labour market crisis The problem is our inability to create enough non-farm jobs Related News In 1924 Mahatma Gandhi wrote a letter to Jawaharlal Nehru urging him “to take up remunerative work because you must live by the sweat of your brow even though you must live under your father’s roof” Indian farmers and children living under their roofs today know that farming is no longer remunerative work and a modern society values farm sweat lower than non-farm sweat If Gandhiji and Nehru were around I’m sure they would agree that our pathetic agricultural productivity — 200 million Indians produced less food than eight million Americans — is the father of our poverty Since both also said that poverty is the worst form of violence I’m also sure they would agree that India’s poverty is a child of our pathetic non-farm job creation As Alcoholics Anonymous insightfully reminds us the first stage in solving a problem is facing the facts India doesn’t face land shortage Every Indian household could get half an acre and still fit into Rajasthan plus Maharashtra and only 8 per cent of all land is used for urban and commercial purposes (only 8 per cent of land in Brazil and 18 per cent in the US is cultivated land) India doesn’t face a food crisis In fact becoming the world’s second-largest food producer has been the best possible response to the 1968 call by racist Stanford professor Paul Ehrlich to let Indians die of starvation India doesn’t face a suicide crisis We have 17 per cent of the world’s population and 17 per cent of its suicides Our suicide rate per one lakh people fell by 10 per cent over the last decade While every preventable death is a horrible tragedy the highest estimate of farmers’ suicides is 25000 of the 25 lakh suicides last year I wish this number for farmers was zero But I remind myself that the farmer suicide number is half the number of women who died during childbirth in India last year Why is there a substantially different political outrage for farmer suicides and women childbirth deaths The usual explanation of economist Mancur Olson’s brilliant work on vested interests which detailed how an organised vocal minority can hijack the agenda in a democracy is unsatisfactory because farmers are neither organised nor a minority However our politicians have two vested interests — one that involves the personal finances of some and the other that involves the political imagination of most The first vested interest is obvious Land is the primary source of wealth for many politicians and the agricultural land conversion title and registration industry has the highest margins of any industry in the country These margins are a child of regulatory cholesterol which ensures farmers rarely get the final price paid by the end user of the land The second vested interest lies in well-intentioned political imagination that is fighting yesterday’s labour market war when we didn’t know how to create non-farm jobs Since any job is better than no job farm employment becomes desirable public policy Besides the double standard — working on the farm is considered desirable by most politicians for other people’s children and not their own — this notion also confuses supporting farmers with supporting farming The best way to help farmers is to have less of them And this needs massive non-farm job creation Unfortunately India is a hostile habitat for non-farm job creation because of urbanisation regulatory cholesterol infrastructure and labour laws Urbanisation is a problem because job creation tends to cluster Two lakh of our six lakh villages have less than 200 people and we need our 50 cities with more than a million people to catch up with China’s 350 such cities Regulatory cholesterol encourages informality; our 63 million enterprises translate to only one million companies of which only 10000 have a paid-up capital of more than Rs 10 crore Infrastructure murders manufacturing employment that at 11per cent of the labour force is the same as post-industrial US And labour laws that are essentially marriage without divorce breed informality small firms capital substitution of labour and corruption The cumulative impact of small and informal enterprises is substantial; the productivity difference between Indian manufacturing firms in the 90th and 10th percentiles by size is 22 times The issues of land for industry and tragic farmer suicides have some tactical responses like guaranteeing land titles by linking khaathas to land registration (the sub-registrar in Agra has registered the sale of the Taj Mahal more than five times since Independence) to reduce the need for acquisition recognising suicide as a public health problem with policy solutions planning cities etc But emulating China’s genius of creating 450 million non-farm jobs in three decades needs India to decentralise power to states build smart cities implement GST activate Make in India Skill India improve our ease-of-doing-business ranking persist with labour law changes and build infrastructure It is clear that India’s non-farm job emergency is not a wicked problem like the cancer of climate change but a plumbing problem So there has to be more to the current battle in Delhi than a disagreement on sequencing At heart it is the healthy battle of ideas about the relative roles of the state and markets in reducing poverty But it is unhelpful to frame job creators as villains (suit-boot waale) because being pro-market is not the same as being pro-business and being pro-farming is not the same as being pro-farmer In the 1920s Russian economist Aleksandr Chayanov made an influential case for small family farm viability based on self-exploitation You don’t have to pay market wages to yourself or your family Most Indian farmers are tired of self-exploitation and would agree with Nehru’s vision that agriculture is only “a temporary expedient of transition rather than a solution” Economics teaches us that if something cannot go on forever it will stop India’s farms employing 50 per cent of India’s workforce must stop Viewing the current land bill debate through Nehru’s eyes rather than Chayanov’s is a great place to start The writer is chairman Teamlease Services For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Mumbai | Updated: June 24 2017
