News Students must not be insulated from popular culturebut taught to engage with it intelligently Each yearbeginning with Teachers Day and ending with Dussehrawe restore our reverence for the spirit of learning in India We salute our teacherspast and presentand then we place our schoolbooks ceremoniously before Ganesha and Saraswati in worship In the secular public sphere toothe debate often turns to important issues in education: the gap between private and government schoolsthe inadequate language skills of college graduateseven engineers and scientistsand of coursethe factory-like culture of cramming for exams all through ones life Underlying these issues is a deeper concern about the meaning of education itself Given the highly instrumental view of education children grow up with (marksdegreesjobs)most education today often comes from (or is seen as coming from) spaces outside schoolsuch as religion and family There ishoweverone cultural mirror that educators need to recognise for its pervasive influence in Indiaand that is Bollywood Cinema (we didnt call it Bollywood back then) was not a subject ever discussed in the classroom when I was in school over 25 years ago It was something of a forbidden topicreserved for idle conversations among friendsand never for any serious discussion with our teachers I still recall a diatribe our Class IX science teacher launched into about our alleged preference for dirty cinema star magazines over science magazines I would imagine that teachers today have more serious distractions to contend with than mere magazines and students too have a more challenging sensory and cultural environment to navigate That is precisely the reason whymore than everthe classroom should become a place where students are not desperately (and vainly) insulated from popular culturebut are taught to confront it intelligently The growth of media studies has popularised the idea that at least some sort of critical media awareness is an essential part of citizenship in a modern democracy A good media studies curriculum at the university level teaches not only practical production skillswhich students often seek to get jobs in the media industriesbut also the importance of thinking critically about the media Even if the realities of working in the media may seem far from the idealism students are encouraged to cultivatethe fact remains many people in India today are aware of what it means to academically engage with media and popular culture While this is a good beginninga more important and vital task is to translate the insights and practices of critical media studies into a curriculum that could prove meaningful to students at a much younger age For thatnothing is more necessary than putting Bollywood in the classroom while students are still in school Teaching Bollywood would not simply mean showing students how movies are made but how movies are making us There is often a knowledge gap among us as media consumers between the scale of our emotional investment in media culture and our ability to engage with that culture Simply putthe way students might talk about a movie in class may seem no different from how they talk about it with friendsonline or face-to-facewith references to celebrity gossip and mere likes and dislikes But if the classroom can turn Bollywood into a window into students own liveshopes and dreamsand encourage them to see that as a social narrative using readings and ideas from media studies and other appropriate subjectsthen a Bollywood curriculum could prove engaging and insightful For examplea history of independent India could be taught not merely as names and dates to memorisebut as a story marked eloquently through the stories in our popular cinema Students could be encouraged to engage with important ideas in the humanities and social scienceseven at the school levelthrough examples from cinema It is one thingfor instanceto watch Devdas as a movie about what todays youth might call a loserbut quite another to see the character as a symbol of Indias stranded journey between village and cityits mixed modernityas scholars have observed It is one thing to talk about consumerism as a mere sloganand quite another to show it in the dazzling movies of the 1990swhere everyone was Raj or Prem and wore ubiquitously branded clothes Teaching our movies will help us do more than merely teach concepts Ultimatelyby engaging students on the terrain they are most familiar withwe will have a chance to teach them about lifeand to train them to think of life not as an individual journey but as a social and historical phenomenon in which each one must make ethicaland directly or indirectlypolitical commitments too Our classroom must prove to our students as meaningful a source of ideas about the self and others as a movie like Hum Aapke Hain Kaun Juluriprofessor of media studies at the University of San Franciscois author of Bollywood

Akshay Kumar shares an adorable message from his sister on Rakshabandhan occasion Related News Akshay Kumar has always spoken about empowering women in the country He in fact is contributing to making women stronger and fierce by conducting martial arts classes for hundreds of girls in Mumbai Now as the Indian festival of Rakshabandhan is just a day away the actor recalls the importance of how the meaning of this celebration needs to be revised The actor shared a ‘Direct Dil Se’ video of his sister who explains Akshay’s habits while growing up For those who are unaware Akshay was born as Rajiv Bhatia So his sister refers to him as Raju (short name for Rajiv) in the video and narrates how when they grew up she missed every late night party and outings because Akshay never accompanied her and wanted her to take care of herself “I used to get angry on Raju He was elder to me he had some responsibility Whenever I would ask my parents to send me to a party or outing with friends they would say ‘take Raju along’ But he would never come All he would ever say ‘Take care of your own’ So I could never go to a single party” narrates his sister #DirectDilSe pictwittercom/ikcg78sKHF — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 6 2017 Adding further she recalls how Akshay grew up over night after his father’s demise “My father passed away 17 years ago we all suddenly felt lonely We did not even realised when Raju stepped in my father’s shoes However his idea of leading life remains same – take care of your own self However I realised the importance of his statement when my daughter went for higher studies to America We were stressed about it but when she asked ‘Will I manage’ automatically I replied like Raju ‘Bas khudka dhyan rakhi’ (Just take care of yourself) So to me and my daughter my brother has given me the biggest gift which is to take care of my own self” The video ends with Akshay rushing to his sister and planting a kiss on her cheeks cuddling her like a small baby While her statement is something that gives us a sense of empowerment the climax of the video is for sure too cute to handle And by the end Akshay gives a message – don’t protect you sisters empower them

Minister Arun Jaitley Related News The year 2015 has been a disappointing one as far as economic reforms are concerned While another failed parliamentary session is likely to lead to more acrimony and finger-pointing among politicians common people will look back at 2015 as a wasted opportunity Even the prime minister acknowledges the long road ahead when he says “reforms are not a sprint but a marathon” For the ruling party there were setbacks on the political front as well The year started with a humiliating defeat in Delhi and ended with a rout in Bihar With no prospect for the BJP to get a majority in the Rajya Sabha anytime soon the only hope for the government in pushing forward its legislative agenda lies in reaching a compromise But there appears to be no reason why the opposition parties will oblige easily especially since the BJP stalled several key legislation like the GST bill during the UPA’s tenure It’s tit for tat in Parliament while the nation suffers But even the progress of economic reforms that did not require legislative approval has been sluggish For instance the modest disinvestment target of roughly $11 billion has been postponed There is no clear strategy to recruit better managers for PSUs The bankruptcy bill is yet to be made into law The problem of non-performing assets in public-sector banks remains unresolved There has been little progress on energy reforms and there is only a slight improvement in the ease of doing business index The government had a unique opportunity afforded by the Bali package of the WTO — to reform the PDS and domestic food subsidy regime — but it has shelved those plans and ignored the Shanta Kumar Committee report on reforming the Food Corporation of India And no efforts are underway to set right the distorted fertiliser subsidy Inflation has come down but this too is largely due to the decline in global commodity prices The revised (but questionable) GDP series has bumped up the growth rate by two percentage points and this is being used by the government to claim that it is the world’s fastest growing emerging economy But the level of investment remains lower than desired and import demand continues to be weak In fact there are no financial or business indicators that suggest the economy is growing as rapidly as suggested by the new GDP estimates A modest recovery is underway but it is much weaker than what is being claimed The recovery has also been slowed down by the RBI’s stubborn insistence on keeping interest rates higher than mandated by the underlying inflation The RBI finally lowered interest rates but it could further help the recovery by lowering them by another 50 basis points The Central government’s fiscal deficit has come down and the BJP has maintained fiscal rectitude But the combined Central and state fiscal deficit has gone up since 2010-11 With the 14th Finance Commission recommending that more funds be devolved to the states it will be important to start looking at combined fiscal deficit numbers So what are the prospects for India in 2016 At the end of 2013 declining growth persistently high inflation and sharp rupee depreciation signalled an impending crisis This placed the political elite under some pressure to pursue reforms But since then inflation has declined and a new GDP series paints us as the best performing global economy This has reduced the pressure for reforms After raising expectations Prime Minister Narendra Modi has transitioned into a marathon runner He even appears to have acquired the silence and loneliness of a long-distance runner But something is off Mike Fanelli the famous running coach says “I tell our runners to divide the race into thirds Run the first part with your head the middle part with your personality and the last part with your heart” The PM might wish to heed Fanelli’s advice since at present he appears to be running the race in reverse order The Bihar results showed that he must build coalitions to win elections and the GST fiasco exemplified that he needs to compromise in order to regain the reform momentum The writer is visiting distinguished professor at NIPFP
