Top NewsPublished: January 14 2014 4:56 am Figures show that more than 20 years of economic reforms initiated by Singh but pursued by all governments in spiteof corrective mechanisms such as the MGNREGA have resulted in greater inequality IE Related News The middle class that has benefited the most is also Singh’s biggest critic In his latest press conference Prime Minister Manmohan Singh declared that “history will be kinder to me than the contemporary media or for that matter the opposition parties in Parliament” He is probably right not only because he is the first PM since Jawaharlal Nehru to complete two five-year terms in a row but also because Singh has had a huge impact on Indian society by orchestrating major economic reforms from 1991 onwards The man is also refreshingly modest But it’s time to take stock not only of the achievements but also the limitations of almost 23 years of “Manmohanomics” One of the basic assumptions during the dismantling of the licence/ permit raj era in the 1990s when the state-owned economic model had clearly exhausted its potential harked back to the trickle-down theory This theory holds that once liberalisation measures re-energise private sector entrepreneurship a rise in the growth rate also benefits the bottom of the pyramid The question is how much the bottom benefits In his first speech after taking over as president Pranab Mukherjee declared in July 2012 that “trickle-down theories do not address the legitimate aspirations of the poor” What kind of indicators can we use to substantiate this claim — or its opposite The controversy around the poverty line suggests that a simple evaluation based on the numbers of absolute poor may not be the most suitable It is also not the most relevant measure of inequality which is key to test the validity of the trickle-down theory Certainly the percentage of Indians below the poverty line declined from 37 per cent in 2004-05 to 298 per cent in 2009-10 But has the gap between rich and poor narrowed How much wealth has really percolated down To answer such questions it is preferable to rely on National Sample Survey Organisation data and more specifically to its calculation of monthly per capita expenditures (MPCE) This indicator offers an instrument by which to measure the evolution of the standard of living and of inequality In 1993-94 the average MPCE was Rs 281 in rural India and Rs 458 in urban India They rose respectively to Rs 772 (+174 per cent) and Rs 1472 (+221 per cent) in 2007-08 which means that the gap between urban and rural areas has jumped from 63 to 91 per centThe gap diminished somewhat between 2007-08 and 2011-12 with rural MPCE reaching Rs 1430 (+85 per cent) and urban MPCE rising to Rs 2630 (+79 per cent) but it remained more than 20 percentage points higher than what it was in 1993-94 at 84 per cent The gap between rural and urban areas has become particularly pronounced in states where cities have boomed like Karnataka with the Bangalore phenomenon and where the gap between rural and urban MPCE has increased from 57 to 935 per cent But we must look beyond the urban/ rural divide and examine the increasingly alarming difference that exists among villages state-wise If we concentrate on the 15 largest states of India we see that in 1993-94 the rural MPCE of those above average (Haryana Rajasthan Gujarat Andhra Pradesh Tamil Nadu Punjab and Kerala) all located in the south and west was Rs 345 when the rural MPCE of the states below average (Karnataka Uttar Pradesh West Bengal Madhya Pradesh Orissa Maharashtra Assam and Bihar) was Rs 255 Almost 20 years later in 2011-12 the rural MPCE of the above average states (the same as in 1993-94 plus Karnataka and Maharashtra which have improved) jumped to Rs 1883 while that of the others (the same as in 1993-94 including the newly created Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh) was only Rs 1122 This means that the gap between villages in the richest parts of rural India and those in the poorest parts of rural India has jumped from 35 to 68 per cent The situation has not changed so dramatically in urban India but the trend is the same In 1993-94 the MPCE of the above average states (Haryana West Bengal Maharashtra Assam Punjab and Kerala) was Rs 490 whereas in those below average (Karnataka Uttar Pradesh Rajasthan Gujarat Madhya Pradesh Andhra Pradesh Orissa Tamil Nadu and Bihar) it was Rs 360 In 2011-12 the urban MPCE of the above average states (the same as in 1993-94 plus Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh and minus Assam and West Bengal) was Rs 3153 whereas in those below average it was Rs 2170 This means that the gap between citizens in the richest parts of urban India and those in the poorest parts of urban India has increased from 36 to 45 per cent These figures show that more than 20 years of economic reforms initiated by Singh but pursued by all governments in spite of corrective mechanisms such as the MGNREGA have resulted in greater inequality This trend is in contrast to the decade between 1983 and 1993-94 when the percentage of those below the poverty line declined by 98 percentage points while it was reduced by only 83 percentage points over the following 10 years This is quite understandable First rural residents were bound to lag behind given the slow growth of agriculture Over the years 2005-06 and 2011-12 the average annual growth rate of industry at 2004-05 prices has been 75 per cent while services grew at an ever-quicker pace — 995 per cent Agriculture lagged behind at 38 per cent These figures reflect the government’s lack of interest in agriculture which has resulted in declining investment (in irrigation for instance) and diminishing subsidies (for instance for fertilisers) Second liberalisation allows those who have some capital — be it in terms of education land or money — to invest and flourish while others have to wait for the trickle-down effect Now this percolation is only possible in geographical terms when the rich can invest where the poor live Logically they should be incentivised to do so the moment the cost of labour rises in the most developed parts of the country but infrastructure (electricity roads) is often lacking elsewhere Instead the poor go to the richest areas as migration flows show The rise of inequality in India may not be what Singh will be remembered for in history but it has probably been the most striking consequence of the trickle-down theory After two decades of liberalisation investment in agriculture and infrastructure is key Only the state can undertake such investment The fiscal reform that would make it possible may well be the need of the day to create jobs not only in the cities where industry needs to grow but also in villages Ironically the very same middle class that has benefited most from Manmohanomics as evident from the social inequalities described above is the most critical of Singh The writer is senior

Khan-starrer Dangal pales in comparison –to the real surroundings of Mahavir Singh Phogat’s village – Balali in Bhiwani Haryana All that we have seen so far in the trailer including songs such as Haanikarak Baapu — dwindles in size when one sees this sleepy village that gave the country two world-class women wrestlers So when Aamir Khan arrived on a warm Sunday afternoon with his cavalcade of guards and cameras to greet the Phogat family on the occasion of Geeta Phogat’s wedding it was the whole village that celebrated the event Elderly men from the village — dressed in white kurta pyjama and huddled around a hookah women gathered on the roof to catch a glimpse of the actor and young boys trying to click a selfie –mingled to paint a pretty picture on this breezy afternoon It could have been easily a case of Bollywood actor condescending to masses in a faceless village But it was not And that’s where the story of Dangal becomes significant It was one of those rare occasions when an actor’s fame didn’t clash with achievements of an individual The village cheered for Aamir But that was just a part of it Phogat’s new house has an immense wrestling ground Rajvir Jakhar a relative of Phogat said “Mahavir trains around 15-20 girls in his house He spends his money on their training He has been gram pradhan (village head) for last 15 years That helps” When asked about Dangal Rajvir says “With Dangal Mahavir has gone to Bollywood The entire country can watch him on screen Many people from bordering villages have come to see Mahavir ever since movie Dangal started” It could have been easily a case of Bollywood actor condescending to masses in a faceless village But it was not And that’s where the story of Dangal becomes significant The large brick house of Mahavir can give modern apartments a run for their money It is equipped with an akhara and a large barn for buffaloes Same can be said of other houses in the neighbourhood Vedprakash Phogat another relative of Mahavir said “Mahavir also has an interest in motorbikes He also kept horses when he was young” Asked about his early memories of Phogat sisters Rajvir says “People in the village didn’t like it initially when Mahavir allowed his girls to take part in local competitions Geeta defeated one boy in a wrestling match People from other villages didn’t find out about her gender until we cheered for the girl That kushti (match) changed perceptions And friends and family helped Mahavir afterwards” When Dangal will be released on December 23 people will get to see the ordinary life of countryside – its vast fields large playgrounds and a persistent will to excel amongst its people They will have a glimpse of small struggles and little accomplishments of domestic households of the small town and rural India It’s very rare to see a Bollywood film –making an effort to reach out to a country – that remains unexplored It’s like returning back to your roots Most recent movies have a clear disconnect with real India and its myriad engaging entertaining stories A large part of the film is shot in Ludhiana Punjab However makers have clearly taken references from Mahaveer’s old house This house with all its ordinariness looks surreal when we visited it recently We just hope that all those fields lanes and houses come alive on screen as they were on that bright afternoon Even before its release Dangal has managed to make a solid connection with people here In Dangal they see their own reflections – something which a Hindi movie manages to achieve so rarely For them the word Dangal far removed from the glamour and glory of Bollywood is an everyday word It’s part of their vernacular It remains to be seen if Dangal would make the same connect with people outside this village However it should be celebrated for its courage to go out and show us a very real story that belongs to us For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd
