think of Indian politics on its own rather than on Western ideological terms His idea that the Congress ‘system’ was an all-inclusive pan-Indian arrangement gave us much to think about and to understand about how things were in India beneath the empty rhetoric of the English-speaking classes The Congress system was interested in recruiting diverse castes and regional groups who did not agree on any ideology except the catechism of secularism and socialism neither of which were coherent concepts But between 1947 and 1969 it survived and gave an open tolerant democracy to India where diverse opinions flourished The system was killed by Indira Gandhi when she split the Congress We had instead a family firm where the top jobs were outside the reach of all but beta-beti and the only ideology was sycophancy That system has now ended and we need not think about it anymore A new political system is struggling to be born and it may very well be in Delhi that it will come to life Kiran Bedi’s induction into the BJP has attracted many superficial and snide remarks What people seem to have missed is that after the Congress system cracked in 1969 new forces have come into politics mainly from mass movements which took on the system The JP movement threw up the Janata conglomerate Its many splits occupy much of the political space today The BJP transformed itself from Jan Sangh into a Janata party as did the many Janata Dal factions which are desperately trying to reunite The next mass movement was led by Anna Hazare It did not lead to a dramatic climax as the JP movement but its embers are still glowing The fact that Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi come from the same movement but now belong to different parties has generated much needless cynicism The fact is that since the Congress was a closed family shop aspiring politicians could only come up from mass movements These movements are always broad coalitions with no ideological uniformity Both Kejriwal and Bedi are activists doers They want to implement changes to present governance They have a very light ideological coating They are effective only if they are in power Just 13 months ago Kejriwal stunned the country by leading his party to a significant showing in the Delhi elections The media went wild and the middle classes weary of the Congress and unsure of the BJP thought they had found a saviour Alas the adoration went to Kejriwal’s and his party’s head He threw away power by behaving like an opposition and then overextended the party by fighting across India in the general election In the meantime a more experienced chief minister redrew the political map by moving the BJP to the centre and fought on the platform of inclusive development The middle classes were reassured and the poor felt hopeful He led his party to a first-time absolute majority He has raised high hopes and has to work round the clock to fulfil the promise But as he has fought in election after election in the states his Parivar has become an obstacle They do not care for development or governance but indulge in their paranoia about the minorities and their insatiable urge to march backwards to old glories of ancient India Delhi is crucial for the battle within the Parivar as much as the battle between the AAP and BJP If Sakshi Maharaj and ghar wapsi and Ramzada (sic) prevail the BJP would be lucky to do as well as it did the last time Minorities may be hateful to the Parivar but their votes swing seats as we saw in Jammu and Kashmir where the BJP failed to be the largest single party This is where Kiran Bedi’s induction into the party is crucial It is a signal that the BJP is a do-something party not a perpetual mischief-maker The BJP aspires to be the new system broad-based like the Congress used to be To succeed in this move the BJP needs to win Delhi convincingly The question is: Can it For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: IANS | New

Chennai’s population lived in slums Yet forthis city the slums remain out of sight out of mind Could a sport help change that Football is a sport widely played in the slum communities here and each locality has stories about the difference it’s made In Vysarpadi a notorious working-class neighbourhood in North Chennai the game is a tool two brothers — Umapathy N and Thangaraj N — adopted to keep kids away from crime in the late ’90s Since then “over 100 have played national matches and 23 have represented India in international arenas” says Umapathy In Basin Bridge an adjacent area football has been a prevalent sport for nearly five decades But it is only since Oasis — an NGO that works with disadvantaged communities — launched its football programme in 2012 that many have learnt the sport formally in the area “We used to play with plastic balls before and we’d keep bumping into each other because we’d look down at the ball” says13-year-old R Vijay chuckling In another slum settlement inside the culturally rich Mylapore neighbourhood a few young players have drawn attention to their locality by representing India in Scotland and Spain in the last couple of years While each community has a different relationship with football what it hopes to achieve is the same As a sport largely played by young boys here — many of whom come from impoverished backgrounds abusive households or single-parent families — it aims to give them direction and motivation Footballtakes up most of their energy and time (sometimes players practise up to six hours a day) giving them little leeway to go astray For the stamina the sport requires most players stay away from alcohol which is otherwise a major menace in these localities For example in Vysarpadi till about two years ago when a bus stand came up most childrenfrom the area had to walk 2-7 km to get to the nearest corporation school in Kalyanapuram Yet the area has six state-owned wine shops within a 3-km radius “Population density here is high and we don’t have adequate access to healthcare education or employment Instead we have wine shops” says Umapathy Football offers coaches counsellors and mentors a chance to get the attention of impressionable young boys By catching them young and watching them grow this sport that inherently requires self-discipline team work and responsibility aspires to create a generation of men who can inspire and empower those to come Here we look at three slum communities and their evolving relationship with the sport: Players and spectators at Pallakumanagar All photos courtesy Raveena Joseph Practise game at Vysarpadi The ways of Vysarpadi The boys from Vysarpadi are tough spunky and mostly directionless In 2000 most who wrote their Class 10 exams did not pass Their parents — largely domestic workers labourers sweepers and sewage workers — would leave early for work and return late Alcoholism was rampant domestic abuse was common Aggression frustration and helplessness in children were apparent “These boys made good goons for politicians and financiers They would just take money and allow their lives to dissolve into violence” says Thangaraj explaining why the area is known for crime and bloodshed “We couldn’t change them so we decided to work with children” He and his brother Umapathy who grew up in the locality started SCSTEDS (The Slum Children’s Sports Talent Education Development Society) in 1997 They hoped to rectify the issues that plagued the area — high incidence of suicide school drop outs child marriages child labour crime drug abuse alcoholism and lack of awareness about opportunities When they started though it was tough to get parents on board They desperately needed the Rs 2000 the children made by washing plates instead of going to school because the burden of debt hangs over most households here “Even a decade ago police would come beat up children sitting outside their homes They’d take in young boys who are loud-mouthed just to scare them” says Thangaraj Janani D a 12-year-old player says many her age “aspire to do drugs” and have already taken to smoking bidis She however is driven Her mother — the only bread winner in her family of five because her father “doesn’t work; he only drinks” — was concerned about what people would say when Janani started playing football a year ago Wearing shorts playing amongst boys and returning home late are major concerns But when Janani made it to SDAT (Sports Development Authority of Tamilnadu) where her nutrition and tuition are taken care of her mother was glad “People speak so badly about my locality but I want to show them what we’ve got” says Janani In such localities where social recognition and respect is scarce the sport paves the way for the same Thangaraj cites the case of a kid from SCSTEDS whose father used to sell mawa but shut shop to drive auto rickshaws instead when he started doing well in the sport “Lots of parents change so that their choices don’t interfere with their kid’s life” he adds Through the children the brothers have also been able to reach out to parents so that they can stand together to tackle civic issues in the locality — water stagnation garbage accumulation ration issues etc “In football you need to struggle as a team to get a goal We believe this game would teach these kids the resilience they dearly need to cope with life’s curve balls” says Thangaraj Practise game at Vysarpadi Practise session at Vysarpadi The football field in Mylapore A muddy playground surrounded by the slovenly streets of
