The Social Worlds of Pre-Modern Transactions:
Perspectives from epigraphy and history’
                                                                                            

in association with
Ms. Mekhola Gomes,
Mr. Digvijay Kumar Singh,
Ms. Anna Varghese
and
Ms. Meera Visvanathan,

 Jawaharlal Nehru University,
New Delhi.


Concept Note:
When we speak of transactions, the overwhelming tendency is to view them as dealings of an economic nature. In keeping with this, perhaps, there exists an extremely sophisticated body of work in Indian history that focuses on economic issues, whether religious benefactions, taxation or trade. But transactions also need people to execute them, and so, the social is involved in transactions from the beginning of time. Any study of such transactions will unfailingly become a study not only of commodities or items of exchange, but also the interactions and relationships between people that helped shape these cultures of exchange.  

In emphasizing the ‘social worlds of premodern transactions’, we hope to focus attention on the social aspects of such encounters, on the forms of interaction that underlay the exchange of goods and service, that informed extractions and prestations, and that led to overlaps and borrowings in languages, ideas and practices.

In this workshop, we have sought to bring together students of ancient and medieval history to present their work, share ideas, and reflect upon a common theme. While our focus is on inscriptions, we have not restricted ourselves to them and welcome the use of a variety of approaches and sources. The papers in this workshop start from the historic period and extend into the medieval. They draw from different regions, but given the focus on inscriptions, it is perhaps not surprising that many of them are based in South India and the Deccan. At the same time, there are also discussion of the networks created by pilgrimage and trade which expand the sphere of interaction into Central Asia and the wider Indian Ocean world.

We hope that the conversations over these two days will not only broaden the discussion on social and economic history but also create the space for tracing certain patterns across regions and viewing them across time.

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM Workshop

3062014


Oracle Academy in association with L V Prasad Eye Institute, SAKSHAM and EnAble India organized a four-day workshop in Hyderabad for the blind/partially blind students to train them in HR software solutions. The workshop helped 7 undergraduate and postgraduate students learn the use of Oracle PeopleSoft HCM applications. The solution help companies recruit and manage talent as well as accurately forecast future workforce needs. This workshop has equipped these students with the required skills needed to pursue entry-level positions such as business analyst, recruiter, payroll, on-boarding, exit functions within the HR department of a company.

Oracle used modern adaptive technologies such as screen reading software to help students interpret what is being displayed on the screen. Students were provided with supporting reference material in Braille. It is estimated that a large segment of people with various disabilities are either unemployed or not satisfied with career development services and training opportunities provided to them. The need of the hour is to adopt new methodologies and technologies to improve the quality of education and employment for these individuals. The Oracle PeopleSoft HCM workshop was a step in this direction and aimed to improve access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education for students with visual impairments.

RBI keeps policy rate unchanged at 8% and Reduces SLR by 50 bps to 22.5%

3062014


Second Bi-monthly Monetary Policy Statement, 2014-15

RBI keeps policy rate unchanged at 8% and Reduces SLR by 50 bps to 22.5%

RBI in its Second Bi-monthly Monetary Policy Statement, 2014-15 has kept the cash reserve ratio (CRR) of scheduled banks unchanged at 4% of net demand and time liability (NDTL) and the policy repo rate under the liquidity adjustment facility (LAF) unchanged at 8%. Consequently, the reverse repo rate under the LAF stands unchanged at 7%, and the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate and the Bank Rate at 9%. It will continue to provide liquidity under 7-day and 14-day term repos of upto 0.75% of NDTL of the banking system.

The RBI, however, reduced the statutory liquidity ratio (SLR) of scheduled commercial banks by 50 basis points to 22.5% of their NDTL from 23% of their NDTL. It reduced the liquidity provided under the export credit refinance (ECR) facility from 50% of eligible export credit outstanding to 32% with immediate effect. In addition to this, RBI has also decided to introduce a special term repo facility of 0.25% of NDTL to compensate fully for the reduction in access to liquidity under the ECR with immediate effect.

Snapshot of Second Bi-monthly Monetary Policy Statement 2014-15
Since the first bi-monthly monetary policy statement of April 2014, global activity is evolving at different speeds. A broad-based strengthening of growth is gaining traction in the US and the UK , after a moderation in the first quarter of 2014 due to adverse weather conditions. However, in the euro area, recovery is struggling to gather momentum. The pick-up in sales in Japan in anticipation of the consumption tax hike has been followed by a sharp fall in consumer spending. Structural constraints continue to impede growth prospects in emerging market economies (EMEs), with concerns about the slowdown in China as its economy rebalances. Financial markets across the world still remain vulnerable to news about the impending normalisation of interest rates in some developed economies, even as some valuations appear frothy.

On the domestic front, lead indicators point to continuing sluggishness in domestic economic activity in the first quarter of 2014-15. The outlook for agriculture is clouded by the meteorological department’s forecasts of a delay in the onset of the south-west monsoon with a 60% chance of the occurrence of El Nino. The ongoing contraction in the production of consumer durables and capital goods, coupled with moderation in corporate sales and non-oil non-gold imports, is indicative of continuing weakness in both consumption and investment demand. The decisive election result, together with improved sentiment should, however, create a conducive environment for comprehensive policy actions and a revival in aggregate demand as well as a gradual recovery of growth during the course of the year.

Inflation – Retail inflation measured by the consumer price index (CPI) increased for the second consecutive month in April, pushed up by a sharp spike in food inflation, especially in the prices of fruits, vegetables, sugar, pulses and milk. CPI inflation excluding food and fuel has moderated gradually since September 2013 although it is still elevated.

Liquidity – With the unwinding of year-end window dressing, the corresponding decline in the size of excess CRR holding of banks as well as the sharp decline in Government cash balances with the Reserve Bank as a result of Government expenditure, liquidity conditions improved significantly in April and May 2014. The average daily access to liquidity from the LAF and term repos during this period has been close to 1% of NDTL. RBI mentioned that it will continue to monitor the liquidity conditions and will actively manage liquidity to ensure adequate flow of credit to the productive sectors.

External sector – India ’s current account deficit (CAD) narrowed sharply to 1.7% of GDP during 2013-14, primarily on account of a decline in gold imports, although other non-oil imports also contracted with the weakening of domestic demand, and there was some pick-up in exports. In April 2014, the trade deficit narrowed sharply due to resumption of export growth after two consecutive months of decline, and the ongoing shrinking of import demand. Robust inflows of portfolio investment, supported by foreign direct investment and external commercial borrowings, kept external financing conditions comfortable and helped add to reserves.

Policy stance

In March and April, CPI headline inflation has risen on the back of a sharp increase in food prices. Some of this price pressure will continue into May, but it is largely seasonal. Moreover, CPI inflation excluding food and fuel has been edging down. The risks to the central forecast of 8% CPI inflation by January 2015 remain broadly balanced. Upside risks in the form of a sub-normal/delayed monsoon on account of possible El Nino effects, geo-political tensions and their impact on fuel prices, and uncertainties surrounding the setting of administered prices appear at this stage to be balanced by the possibility of stronger Government action on food supply and better fiscal consolidation as well as the pass through of recent exchange rate appreciation. Accordingly, at this juncture, RBI mentioned that it is appropriate to leave the policy rate unchanged, and to allow the disinflationary effects of rate increases undertaken during September 2013-January 2014 to mitigate inflationary pressures in the economy. The Reserve Bank remains committed to keeping the economy on a disinflationary course, taking CPI inflation to 8% by January 2015 and 6% by January 2016. RBI also stated that if the economy stays on this course, further policy tightening will not be warranted. On the other hand, if disinflation, adjusting for base effects, is faster than currently anticipated, it will provide headroom for an easing of the policy stance.

Contingent upon the desired inflation outcome, the April 2014 projection of real GDP growth from 4.7% in 2013-14 to a range of 5 to 6% in 2014-15 is retained with risks evenly balanced around the central estimate of 5.5%. The outlook for the agricultural sector is contingent upon the timely arrival and spread of the monsoon. Easing of domestic supply bottlenecks and progress in the implementation of stalled projects should brighten the outlook for both manufacturing and services. The resumption of export growth is a positive development and as world trade gathers momentum, the prospects for exports should improve further.

In pursuance of the Dr. Urjit R. Patel Committee’s recommendation, the Reserve Bank has decided to limit access to export credit refinance while compensating fully with a commensurate expansion of the market’s access to liquidity through a special term repo facility from the Reserve Bank (equivalent to 0.25% of NDTL). This will improve access to liquidity from the Reserve Bank for the system as a whole without the procedural formalities relating to documentary evidence, authorisation and verification associated with the ECR. The RBI stated that the reduction of the statutory liquidity ratio (SLR) will give banks more freedom to expand credit to the non-government sector in view of the anticipated economic recovery and improved investment demand. At the same time the RBI mentioned it was cognizant of the significant on-going financing needs of the government. Thus, it has reduced SLR by 0.50% of NDTL with further changes dependent on the likely path of fiscal consolidation.

Further, with a view to facilitate travel requirements of non-residents visiting India, RBI permitted residents and non-residents except citizens of Pakistan and Bangladesh to take out Indian currency notes up to Rs.25,000 while leaving the country.

Going ahead, in order to improve the depth and liquidity in the domestic foreign exchange market, the RBI allowed foreign portfolio investors to participate in the domestic exchange traded currency derivatives market to the extent of their underlying exposures plus an additional USD 10 million. Furthermore, it also permitted domestic entities a similar access to the exchange traded currency derivatives market. As a prudential measure, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), keeping in view of the recent stability in the foreign exchange market, enhanced the limit for foreign exchange remittances under the Liberalised Remittance Scheme (LRS) to USD 1, 25,000 from USD 75,000 earlier, without end use restrictions except for prohibited foreign exchange transactions such as margin trading, lottery and the like.

Warm regards,

She Wants Akhilesh Yadav To Issue A Public Apology 

3062014
Dear Friends - There’s a new petition taking off on Change.org, and we think you might be interested in signing it:

Akhilesh Yadav : Issue a public apology, reconsider police reforms and implement sanitation initiatives

By Pattie Gonsalves
New Delhi
In the aftermath of the brutal gang rape and hanging of two young Dalit girls on their way to visit a nearby field which they used as a toilet, in the Katra Shahadatganj Village, Badaun District, Uttar Pradesh (UP), on 29May 2014, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, responded to a journalist about the rising number of rape cases at a news briefing saying to the reporter, “You are safe, why are you bothered?” (Source: BBC).
This comment also comes just a few weeks after his father Mulayam Singh Yadav was quoted saying about rape, “Ladke, ladke hain. Galti ho jati hai (Boys are boys. They commit mistakes). (Source: First Post) Another Dalit teenage girl was reported gang-raped and strangled in the UP constituency of Mr Mulayam Singh Yadav, the leader of the regional Samajwadi party, on Thursday night. (Source: Reuters)
Even described as the Indian politicians “foot-in-mouth disease” when it comes to rape, these are not isolated comments by any means and only serve to highlight ignorance and a blasé and damaging attitude that condones violence, apart from being grossly inaccurate just simply in terms of the numbers and statistics of reported acts of sexual violence against children and women. (See: A Rape Map of India)
This is a CALL TO ACTION for the following:
1) An apology for your insensitive and grossly inaccurate comment made as well as a clarification of the same. “You are safe, why are you bothered?”
2) A reconsideration of the Verma Committee’s recommendations on police reforms and the prosecution of security personnel charged with sexual assault to be dealt with under ordinary criminal laws.
3) A thorough assessment of the implementation of sanitation initiatives and also the lack of sanitation facilities in rural areas, with special emphasis on the risk it poses to young girls’, women’s and men’s security and health.

Emotional Atyachaar narrates a chilling story of love crime

3062014

Inline images 2

~The show ends its ‘Love Crime’ series with a gripping tale of mystery and betrayal in a relationship ~

When in relationship, it gets extremely difficult to fathom that the person you love has an ulterior motive in being close to you. This is what Bharti learned the hard way as she was naïve and blindly in love with Vivaan. Their love story started when the two met at a café and Bharti was instantly smitten by Vivaan’s charming personality. Soon enough the fatal attraction led to a deeper emotion of love and in no time, they started dating.

Bharti and Vivaan’s relationship was smooth sailing and one day, he took her to his beach house. While looking around and exploring the house, Bharti came across a room which Vivaan forbade her from entering. Bharti found it strange when Vivaan not only stopped her from going to the room, but also asked her to stay away from it, claiming that there were valuable heirlooms of his family. She gave a pass to this incident, but started noticing certain peculiar habits of Vivaan. All this was followed by a couple of more happenings and this raised doubts about him in Bharti’s mind.

In order to clear the doubts and suspicion, Bharti decided to investigate by getting in touch with Vivaan’s acquaintances. While in an attempt to discover Vivaan’s reality, she stumbled upon some appalling truths which stunned her, leaving her absolutely shocked. Bharti was prepared to determine Vivaan’s fishy character, but his reality was terrifying and beyond imagination.

What was it that Bharti found out about Vivaan which was so startling? Was her life at risk?

To find out, tune-in to ‘Emotional Atyachaar 4’, this Friday 6th June 2014, at 7pm only on bindass!
