instead of NREGA better names for their colleges than the ones after gurus and babas Hospitals sell botox dreams smile clinics promise to dazzle your teeth A polytechnic student tells you why Rahul cannot connect here and why ‘BJP ke donon hathon mein laddu hain’ YOU have to be ridiculously parochial to say something as outrageous as what Haryana thinks today India thinks tomorrow Risks rise further when you work out of a newsroom spilling over with Bengalis But that is an old and truly genuine grievance with us Haryanvis That we have always been denied our due as real trendsetters for modern India particularly since the decline of Bengal started in fields as far apart as politics and sport Remember however that I said trendsetters I made no claims to all trends set by us being virtuous Certainly political defection wasn’t A minor Haryanvi politician immortalised himself in India’s political history by giving it its most enduring Aaya Ram-Gaya Ram metaphor for defection He was named Gaya Lal (how did his parents know) and made history crossing the floor three times in one day in the still new Haryana assembly in 1967 Then because the rest of the country had still not woken up to the threat of the Aaya Ram-Gaya Ram culture we served an even ruder reminder with the first en masse and until now unmatched defection of an entire ruling party and its cabinet So Bhajan Lal’s Janata Party government overnight transformed itself into a Congress government We Haryanvis therefore believe that we inspired the great reform called our anti-defection law Or how two pesky Haryanvis Arvind Kejriwal and Yogendra Yadav have transformed our politics with their AAP adventure But nobody gives us credit We are such a tiny state after all We are resilient too Many decades ago Arun Shourie then editor of this newspaper explained our politics brilliantly in his front-page article “B Lal D Lal B Lal” (after Bansi Devi and Bhajan Lal) The three Lals are now gone but their dynasties prosper And true to tradition one thing they have in abundance is political pragmatism In this election for example Bhajan Lal’s son Kuldip Bishnoi’s Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) is in alliance with the BJP and continues its blood feud with the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) being run by the grandson of Devi Lal while his father Om Prakash Chautala serves a jail term for corruption This is where things get interesting The INLD has also stated that they will support a Narendra Modi government at the Centre whether he asks them to do so or not Further the Shiromani Akali Dal in adjoining Punjab the BJP’s second most loyal ally after the Shiv Sena has broken ranks and is supporting the Chautalas in Haryana given their old family relationships The two fine Oberoi hotels next-door to Delhi in Gurgaon are owned by the Badals built on land allotted when senior Chautala was chief minister So this is why the BJP is smiling Whether their ally Bishnoi gets a couple of seats or his arch rival Chautala these will be the NDA’s seats “Bhajapa ke toh donon hathon mein laddu hain” is the line you would hear often if you followed the campaign trail in Haryana Is this going to be the new trend in national politics as well That smaller regional parties elsewhere too will treat their ideology as entirely fungible with a share in power at the Centre Then don’t say Haryana did not set an example for the rest of you The TRS and YSRC in Andhra/ Telangana HD Deve Gowda’s JD(S) in Karnataka the smaller parties in Tamil Nadu Ram Vilas Paswan would all make great Haryanvis THERE are a few more new trends particularly as you walk around reading the writings on the wall Congressmen around the country now know that they are in deep trouble in this election Nobody gives them a chance of forming the next government and Rahul Gandhi simply does not cut it with their voters in 2014 But full marks to Haryana for total political honesty It is the one state where one Congress candidate after another has dropped Rahul/Sonia names and portraits from their election hoardings and posters Candidates particularly sitting MPs have their own pictures and promises are sharply confined to making the state stronger their constituencies more prosperous There is no pretence of giving India a third UPA government “We will have to be idiots not to see reality” says a senior local Congress leader as we chat on the sidelines of Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda’s well-attended rally at Safidon the region’s second-oldest and truly buzzing grain mandi in the heart of the Jatland just about 30 km west of Panipat “Candidates know they are on their own now” he says “so their strategy is to focus on themselves to reposition this election along local issues and hope that local loyalties will work to their advantage” The Gandhis have not been particularly popular in Haryana for a long time They are now a liability Modi and the BJP target them: mother son and son-in-law non-stop So the Congressmen are trying to switch to another more local game Once again if you find this trend of every Congressman for himself catching up in the rest of India you know who pioneered it Listen carefully to young voters and read the writings on the wall and you can understand the Congress party’s Rahul problem better particularly in a state like Haryana The idiom he speaks rights-based governance minimum this minimum that food free education NREGA leave young Haryanvis bemused Because they moved on from there a long time ago Sure Haryana has its problems terrible urban decay being one of them But widespread poverty or hunger is not among them Haryana is today the richest among the larger (25 lakh-plus population) states in India It has urbanised much more rapidly than the Census or Planning Commission figures will tell you In a typical village in the Green Revolution zone Brahmanvas or Makrauli between Panipat and Rohtak for example you will find nearly a third of the houses with air conditioners about a half with washing machines almost each one has a refrigerator Haryana’s prosperity shows in its strides in sports It is India’s little China Hooda gets a big cheer at his rallies when he reminds people that of the 38 gold medals won by India at the Commonwealth Games 22 were won by Haryanvis — it is probably the only time something about that forgettable CWG is cheered anywhere in India He gets an even louder cheer when he uses another relatively modern metaphor to underline the risks in voting for the BJP many of whose candidates are “defectors who bought their tickets for money” “How will they keep their promises to you” says Hooda “they are like Made in China goods they come without any guarantee” He said this to a bored and tired (he was two hours late) afternoon crowd in Safidon and brought it to life It’s a line Baba Ramdev born in a village close by would have loved to steal Hooda knows the pulse of modern Haryana He talks about how it is becoming a national education hub with an IIM fashion technology hotel management and law institutes and medical colleges If I were a young Haryanvi though I would ask him why while he celebrated the arrival of the finest Central institutions he was ruining the brand value of his own state’s by naming them after sundry babas gurus and forgotten politicians The once well-respected Rohtak Medical College is now a post-graduate centre but named after former chief minister Bhagwat Dayal Sharma (just who’s he if I am under 35) Its well-funded new university is named after Maharshi Dayanand and while I have to be careful in the heartland of the Arya Samaj this isn’t a gurukul for heaven’s sake The old and reputed Haryana Agricultural University is now named after Chaudhary Charan Singh and a new one in science and technology at Hissar after Guru Jambheshwar who must have been a wonderful preacher or mystic or gyani But science and technology There is a Baba Mastnath University at Asthal Bohar outside Rohtak Deenbandhu Chhotu Ram University of Science and Technology at Murthal the big dhaba stop on GT Road and the Bhagat Phool Singh Mahila Vishwavidyalaya “Ye honge toh sab mahaan aadmi sir” rise protesting voices in a group I chat with on the outskirts of Jind “but when we walk around with degrees from institutions like these log sochenge hum chholey dey kar degree laaye” Now this is untranslatable how do you explain what a Haryanvi means when he complains it may look like he got his degree in exchange for parched gram But you get the drift You want some such brand name on the tee from your alma mater ASHOK ARYA a prominent Youth Congress worker (son of a former minister) drives me in his Mahindra XUV along the region’s jugular the Hansi branch of the wide frequently brick-lined canal that hauls the sparkling blue-green Sutlej waters to what used to be one of the more arid zones in the north and is now transformed into a grain bowl The wheat is now ripe Its golden sheen stretches endlessly in the soft early-evening sun Ashok points at more evidence of this change as the monotony of ripe dwarf hybrid wheat is broken not just by an occasional clump of sugarcane but also two kinds of walls that represent somewhat unfamiliar shades of architecture There are poultry farms a poultry-feed factory and then grain warehouses In rapidly prospering Haryana he tells me the children of land-owning farmers no longer want to work on the farms But they are still living off their farmland only even better than before There’s been a poultry boom in what is largely a vegetarian state and it reminds me of my friend Neelkanth Mishra India equity strategist at Credit Suisse saying how more jobs have been created by poultry in recent years than any other new business But the other walls of grain warehouses underline the new phenomenon of farmers building these on their land making use of the interest-free government loans and guaranteed 10-year business “You know sir in our country 80 per cent of the grain lies in the open So there is always need for more warehouses” Ashok says But who will do the farming grow food for us I ask The answer is the old one: the landless farmers and labourers They are willing to take your land on contract and pay you a decent rent while they farm and grow All along the highways patches of land are being contracted out to farmers who specialise in growing vegetables for which demand in cities particularly Delhi is insatiable You can easily get a lakh per acre as rent for land used for vegetables Ashok says That is almost two and a half times what you will make from your conventional crops in a year And this is risk-free too An even greater prosperity howsoever revolting you may find it comes from land acquisition The price is now good Most families use part of the money to buy a house even a small apartment in a nearby city and at least one son from the family shifts there to help educate his siblings and their children as well — in English medium Ashok shows me the evidence of change: every day he responds to 100-150 of his young rural constituents on WhatsApp Young Haryanvis want WiFi in their homes not NREGA In fact it is difficult to find farm labour even at Rs 300 a day in Haryana and in peak season it goes to Rs 600-700 per day A simpler way to explain how prosperity changes attitudes is to say that just when Punjab is tiring and flagging Haryana is taking its place A new Haryanvi machismo and urbanisation-fuelled hedonism is on the rise Haryana rules India not just in contact sports: boxing wrestling but also in many others Don’t forget that Saina Nehwal is a Haryanvi as well Its boys and girls are now breaking into modelling and Bollywood And inherited good looks can certainly be made better So three boom industries in Haryana: cosmetic dentists cosmetic surgery and most original of all DJ “academies” Any celebration now needs a DJ and it takes only three weeks for you to learn and you are always in demand In Rohtak I find an entire mall’s front lit up by a nursing home offering hair transplant as well as hair reduction tattoo removal botox tummy tuck acne and burn scar removal and male breast reduction Elsewhere you have smile clinics There must be a market for all of these to exist I walk around villages including Makrauli Khurd where I spent two weeks as an NSS volunteer in 1973 trying to help dig a water channel in the middle of the college summer vacation but now to seek an answer to the question that’s been assailing me for almost three years now starting with the Bihar elections Why is Rahul Gandhi not catching the fancy of India’s youth Why on the other hand is there even some kind of an anti-Rahul wave among the young You caught it in Rajasthan during the recent assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh before that and in Bihar earlier One reason I now figure is that there is a wide gap between what he is saying and what is on his younger audience’s minds “The only thing he keeps telling us is that he will give us cheap food and reform the Congress party” goes the clamour as I gather a small young crowd at a mobile repair shop “Main bolya bhai (I said brother) taine agar apni party theek karni hai toh kar le (if you want to fix your party go ahead by all means) mere pe kya ahsan hai main uske liye tere ko vote kyon doon Apni party waalon se le le (but why should I vote for you then is it a favour to me Ask your partymen for votes) Mere liye jab kuchch karega toh vote mangiye main teri party ka thoda hoon (when you do something for me come to me for my vote I am not your party man)” says Sandip Singh Tokas who doesn’t come from a particularly large land-owning family So after plus-two he is not going to a college but to a polytechnic so he can start working You want to see change come and see the two-in-one campus of HSM institute at Pathri in district Panipat on the road to Gohana Two-in-one because one half of it is an international school for the children of the richer farmers And the other half a polytechnic for those like young Tokas No wonder the language Rahul speaks to them goes right over their heads The young see Rahul as representing too many traits they detest: a sense of entitlement shyness to take responsibility (mantri ban ke kyon nahin dikhaya) indifference to Parliament and surprise of surprises disrespect to elders It is not as if all the young Haryanvis exactly follow the Arya Samajist diktats on obediently respecting their elders But they do not want their leaders to tear ordinances in public and walk off haughtily while their prime minister is overseas I know those who know Rahul will protest that he is not like this To the extent that I know him I would agree But in the market of votes and public opinion perceptions matter and as marketeers say never argue with the customer she is always right At Modi’s rallies in Haryana too the loudest cheer goes up when he talks about the tearing of the ordinance laced with his own mirch-masala of course and reminds people of how “shehzada” grew up with a golden spoon in his pocket while he grew up selling tea at a railway station This cuts devastatingly with younger audiences Rahul and his handlers if they so wish can watch YouTube videos of Modi’s speeches notably in Jhajjar this week It will still be too late to reset his message for this election but there is also a future In most parts of this aspirational impatient country now people do not vote for you because you feel for them however deeply in your heart you may feel it UNLESS you feel sorry for the richest in Haryana and with good reason Yogendra Yadav of the AAP contesting in Gurgaon gets it right when he tells you this is a funny state where the richest are the most helpless The upper crust in Gurgaon has nowhere to go he says as we hop on to his open jeep the only people minus the white caps in that mobile throng on his road-show They pay crores for their apartments but have no idea where to go to redress what Infrastructure is bloody awful and no civic governance Nobody knows who does what except that

four parties which earlier constituted the two alliances Bharatiya Janata Party and the Shiv Sena on one hand and the Congress and the Nationalistic Congress Party on the other have spent their time only explaining away their respective break-ups Each of the main leaders of the four parties Prithviraj Chavan Sharad Pawar Uddhav Thackeray and almost the entire core committee of the BJP have been at pains to lob the cause for the divorce into the former partner’s court The respective spokespersons have been spending TV time clearing their stands at the cost of other things they could have spoken about In this Ping-Pong battle the start of the election campaign has been a casualty The release of their manifestos – Congress is to do it today – have been inordinately delayed Raj Thackeray’s blueprint so titled because manifestos are seen as a paper of no worth released and forgotten has looked at basic issues But in the war of words between others he hopes to be heard because he has something to say The one main unwritten manifesto seems to tell the voter that each of the partners is in the elections for one main reason: defeat their long-time partners never mind the fragment rival alliance BJP and Sena would rather see each other whittled down in the state politics Congress and NCP are similarly posited with respect to each other It is hard to believe they were partners till last week even if they bickered Maharashtra has now thrown all poll calculations off track Candidates have hopped parties in such numbers that the hopefuls had not even planned their campaigns at the constituency level The sudden intra-party migration has upset several apple-carts The near-sure aspirant suddenly found he was not in the fray at all; his tentative campaign planning has gone for a toss and he may even end up having to support a former rival Rivalries at local levels are far more intense By now the campaigning should have quite nearly peaked and the atmosphere electrified The state is nowhere near that point All political parties have in the past ten days launched their campaigns though their national leaders are yet to arrive on the scene Narendra Modi would do so on 4 October for a hectic round; the Gandhis are expected too but their schedules are not known yet Sharad Pawar and Uddhav Thackeray do not have to look to anyone from outside to bolster their campaigns for they are both heading regional parties It is up to them to work up the lather and get the voters to believe their versions of the development story they think they have In a way this campaign has been unwittingly television-centric instead of being about big rallies The problem with this medium is the time-limit that news anchors put on the leaders Circumlocution is being thwarted and spiels are being disallowed and sharp questions on what they aim to do if elected are not being asked The anchors are still confined to questions on the sudden dissolution of the alliances It’s unlike any Assembly elections held in Maharashtra in recent memory In all four parties after the initial bravado of having decided to go it alone the reality about the very hard work needed to get their partners out from the seats they held is sinking in But as Opposition BJP and Sena have no defence of their conduct as an opposition nor Congress-NCP an explanation as to why they let the state slip Since the campaign has to end on 13 October evening and the polling scheduled for 15 October all that they all have is a mere 13 days today included to get their acts together and

supported overwhelmingly by all chambers of commerce and industry in Pakistan In the year 2014 too he has held back the award of the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status which India granted to Pakistan long ago The latest news is that MFN will be granted to the new government after the elections in India If the excuse was that the Manmohan Singh government was lame-duck it was quite feeble There were other reasons the same that cropped up when the more “pro-India” Pakistan People’s Party was ruling Pakistan’s non-state actors don’t want trade with India; they also have a pre-modern view of the economic function as such and look at trade as a dangerous alternative to the sacred duty of war Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif through a massive slip of the tongue had said the army didn’t want trade with India The army has a slightly different view related to geopolitics and Pakistan’s status as a crucial “median” state Free trade with India would not only mean allowing Indian goods to conquer Pakistan but also allowing India to conquer Central Asia through a transport corridor that would run across Pakistan There are two ways of looking at “geopolitical importance” or two ways of deriving benefit from it One is the “civilian” approach which means that the geographically important state has to develop its roadways and railways and other infrastructure such as hotels to facilitate those who wish to pass through Once the geographically “connective” state has become an effective corridor of passage its “strategic” importance no doubt increases And the dividend of this importance comes in economic terms and through an absence of war The other way is the “military” approach which relies on geography as “hindrance” rather than “connection” The military mind says: We are in the middle and we will not let you pass unless you agree to our terms (To India Pakistan says let’s talk Kashmir before we talk free trade) This is a warrior’s approach and signals his opposition to economic activity concealing the real doctrine of economic development through conquest In the case of Pakistan it is the military view of geopolitical importance that has held sway But is India more wedded to the idea of free trade Does it realise that South Asia doesn’t trade at all within itself compared let’s say to the states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Free trade destroys many orders It destroys the “self-sufficient” or socialist state fearing international finance It also destroys boundaries that maintain separated identities and destroys ideologies that work only under insulation It destroys the internal dominance of the state too Are India and Pakistan prepared to destroy some of their most cherished tenets Tribal societies based on delimited food-scarce territories are undermined by trade Warriors don’t like trade and traders but are partial to smuggling The national security state with a backlog of just wars to be fought for national honour is aghast at the prospect of becoming “feminine” through accepting the “insertion” of enemy exports Alas both India and Pakistan are internationally rated as “non-exporting” countries The SAFTA agreement that both signed contains Article 8 which refers to the “removal of intra-SAARC barriers to investment” while making it possible for the weaker economies to seek protection through the “rules of fair competition” India is arousing global ire because of its trade barriers but it is getting away with its introversion after the world economy itself succumbed to being more and more “gated” after the recent collapse of international finance Who wants trade more India or Pakistan Pakistan wants it more but its motive is “hidden” and therefore paradoxically noble: it wants to get rid of external war to which it contributes proxy warriors India on the other hand is suspicious of Pakistani motives and less honourably mixes electoral politics with the question of trade The Indian voter is angry with Pakistan all right but how can one remove the cause of it unless both states trade freely and allow cross-border investments The economist of today is the most subversive philosopher in history since Socrates Imagine India using trade routes that spread like arteries across Pakistan’s sacred territory and the two-nation doctrine succumbing to the self-seeking passions of the non-warrior Pakistan is a corridor of nothing unless India violates it with its manufactures How humiliating Pakistan is fast losing territory and culture to a creed that can only be compared to medieval Muslim conquests It doesn’t feel it is being conquered because it is ideologically prepared for defeat But economically this creeping transformation presages an end to the modern state through a retreat into a Hobbesian purgatory where Islam rewards the heroics of bank-looting and kidnapping This is the scenario after the Taliban succeed in setting up their emirate inside Pakistan The real death of Pakistan is coming gradually through the death of its culture People make fun of “enlightenment” and “moderation” because they see the anti-cultural forces within and without the state winning territory on a daily basis (Pervez Musharraf’s decree of 2006 to remove jihad from the textbooks was ignored by the provinces and the new textbooks actually made fun of “enlightenment” as an “alien doctrine”) Free trade and culture go hand in hand The “monoculture” of free trade (read globalisation) is cakes and ale compared to the “monoculture” of Pakistani nationalism as interpreted by the clergy and the army Those who are scared of it call it Talibanisation There is no honour in heroic isolation The pinnacle of isolation is martyrdom Free trade may be dishonourable but it avoids death and stops poverty Nothing is more dishonourable than poverty My favourite economist-philosopher Ijaz Nabi recently wrote: “Critically without normalising trade with India the Indus Basin would be a T-junction circumscribing the welfare gains from regional integration rather than a crossroads of economic transactions Recent studies show that bilateral trade could be as high as US $10 billion” The irony is that if you hate someone you become like him There is nothing original in this; India’s Gandhi had a creed based on this dictum If India starts thinking the same way as Pakistan and allows things to slide then there will be the fallout of Pakistan’s implosion to cope with Islamabad should go ahead with the MFN sign and ratify free trade and free movement of people and finance and leave the bilateral haggling over tariff and non-tariff barriers for the coming years But diplomacy is operated in South Asia by a give-no-quarter bunch of bureaucrats who cleave to a nationalism that continues to trump economics Pakistan is under obligation to change its stance make ground-breaking decisions and get them approved through statesmanship But its diplomats stay close to the military its sense of unrequited grievance and without knowing it the non-state actors National interest rather than “reciprocity” should guide Pakistan’s decisions about trade with India The
