COLORS channel For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsHoly cow How come we never got to know that the humble animal was so incredibly special Now that a judge himself no less has taken pains to make us understand the real value of cow we must accept that the big controversy around it is not without substance So here’s how according to media reports the honourable judge of Rajasthan High Court Justice Manish Chand Sharma explained the importance of cow: 1) Thirty-three crore deities reside inside its body 2) It’s the only living being which inhales and exhales oxygen 3) Cow’s horns absorb cosmic energy 4) Its dung can kill agents causing cholera 5) Cow urine has 11 benefits for the mankind 6) It is a laboratory in itself Representational image AFP If you are grinning already be serious The honourable judge was making no random statement; he was quoting experts and studies to highlight some of these points The only thing odd about it is that he was hearing a petition on the large-scale death of cows in a shelter in Jaipur when he suddenly shifted to another trajectory extolling the virtues of the animal and making a passionate plea for its protection He also according to a media report called himself a devotee of Lord Shiva Now the cause of the cow is important Maybe it’s worth the discussion it generates these days In fact it has been a burning issue ever since gau rakshaks took upon themselves to kill human beings to protect the animals But it is best left to the scientific community to bring us enlightenment on the several virtues of cow because faith alone is not enough Thirty-three crore deities are fine but there could be harmful viruses and bacteria which are atheists or agents of the evil and have managed to make themselves comfortable in the cow’s body Why would the judge jump the gun and pronounce a verdict even before a proper scientific study into the subject Justice Sharma said it was the "voice of his soul" It appears from the order that he has a nice compassionate soul but aren’t courts supposed to go by evidence If every judge goes by his voice of the soul then the entire judicial architecture would collapse in a heap Something surely appears amiss here The judge said cow should be declared a national animal and prescribed life-term for killing the animal No problem with that If the government thinks it’s worth it it can go ahead and be prepared to face the repercussion if any The problem is the entirety of the judge’s order sounds suspiciously close to the line of thinking of the votaries of a particular ideology Justice Sharma could have inadvertently provided a sense of legitimacy to them The point of this article is not to demean the perceived virtues of the cow Since our ancient texts value it so high there has to be some merit in it However it cannot be left to emotional judgement of certain sections of people Their intention may not be actually to protect cow; they could be making it a pretext to harass other people and communities The death of about 500 cattle in the shelter near Jaipur and the pitiable condition of cattle elsewhere reveal that the current wave of sympathy for the cow may be fake Also the sympathisers appear to be totally oblivious to the fact that aggressive protection of the animal may leave farmers and cows itself in a precarious situation Surely we don’t want to reduce it to a zoo animal Someone must listen to the "voice of the soul" of the cow An animal which can accommodate so many gods cannot be without one Unfortunately it will drown in the faux sympathy of its supposed protectors Islamabad: Pakistan on Wednesday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh after two civilians were killed and six others injured in alleged ceasefire violations along the Line of Control by Indian troops Representational image PTI Foreign ministry spokesman Nafees Zakaria said Indian security forces resorted to firing in Baroh and Tandar sectors on Tuesday Director General (SA and SAARC) Mohammad Faisal summoned Singh and "condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations" by Indian security forces "The deliberate targeting of civilians is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws" Faisal said He urged India to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement and investigate the incidents of ceasefire violations along the LoC The Pakistani foreign ministry previously summoned the Indian envoy for two consecutive days on 8-9 July over the same issue claiming that more civilians were killed in firing by Indian troops New Delhi: Seeking to boost note ban and GST-hit economy Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday announced a massive Rs 692 lakh crore infrastructure spending and another Rs 211 lakh crore for bank recapitalisation to revive investments as well as growth Flanked by all his five secretaries and chief economic advisor Jaitley reeled out economic indicators to support government contention that GDP growth slowdown has bottomed out and economy is turning around File image of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley PTI To boost job creation the government granted enhanced access of funds for MSMEs including by way of customising Mudra loans A presentation was made at a briefing titled ‘The India Story: Speeding Up For Take Off’ which highlighted that the economy grew by 75 percent per annum in the three years of BJP-rule since 2014 For last three years India has been fastest growing major economy in the world Jaitley said "And our intention is that the high growth economy that India has become we continue to maintain that position" he added Economy slowed to 57 percent in the April-June quarter of the current the weakest pace since 2014 as demonetisation sucked out 86 percent of the currency in circulation throwing cash-dependent businesses in disarray and the implementation of GST from 1 July hit small and medium enterprises "There was a temporary slippage in growth in the last two quarters thanks to transitional effect of demonetisation (of old 500 and 1000 rupee notes) and GST" an official statement issued at the briefing said That effect it said is now over with all indicators — industrial production core sector automobile and consumer spending — pointing towards "a strong growth pick up" "There is expectation of very good growth from second quarter of current year itself" he said The finance minister said it is natural that when structural reforms happen there is some impact for limited time "But medium to long term there is huge benefit" The Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday approved a Rs 692 lakh crore investment in building 83677-km of road over the next five years which will create 142 crore mandays of jobs With this the total infrastructure spending cleared by the government touched Rs 14 lakh crore finance secretary Ashok Lavasa said Also a massive bank recapitalisation programme has been approved Of the Rs 211 lakh crore recapitalisation bonds will account for Rs 135 lakh crore and another Rs 76000 crore will come from budgetary support and equity issuance Jaitley said the recapitalisation of PSU banks would be followed by a series of reforms He however did not elaborate "When you give such a big push to infrastructure it helps in job creation And job creation is the intention to push private sector investment and MSME funding" he said Public sector banks which remain the main source of funding have seen NPAs or bad loans swell from Rs 278 lakh crore as of March 2015 to Rs 733 lakh crore in June this year primarily because of reclassification of loan Department of Financial Services Secretary Rajiv Kumar said Of that Rs 175 lakh crore relates to just 12 cases which have been referred to NCLT The recapitalisation besides repairing their balance sheets would help banks meet the Basel III banking rules "The net impact of all these is private investment will be further strengthened Infrastructure instantaneously creates job lending to small and medium enterprises creates job" Jaitley said Macro economic fundamentals are strong he said adding that there was a need to increase public spending "Infrastructure expenditure is unprecedented in the country Efforts are on to increase public expenditure in various sectors of economy — rural roads highways Bharat Mala housing railways" he added Also the intention is to increase private investment in economy "It was one area which had its own challenges So far we believed that public sector banks have done indiscriminate lending at one stake Between 2008-2014 because of indiscriminate lending a bigger chunk is NPAs" he said On reforms that will follow in banking sector he said "I’m only indicating that more reforms will happen so as to ensure that there is no repetition of the situation that was there in 2014 where in you lend indiscriminately while hiding the real conditions of those loans Its only after March 2015 the actual position of banks became clear" Asked if the bank recapitalisation plan will impact fiscal deficit he said: "It will depend on the nature of bonds and the manner in which it is dealt withThe money which has been deposited in banks post demonetisation that is available for lending but availability of money doesn’t ensure that it can be lent For that capital adequacy is needed And that capital adequacy was eroded because of excessive NPAs and because of situation of banks between 2008-2014" Jaitley said the Cabinet decided that a "bold step" should be taken by the government to address this problem through Rs 211 lakh crore recapitalisation "This will be accompanied by a series of banking reforms which you will hear from us in the course of next few months" "Of this money part of money will come from banks raising their own capital where government equity can come down to 52 percent There is another Rs 18000 crore from budgetary resources which will be put into banks under Indradhanush So that makes it a total of Rs 76000 crore" he said In a presentation made at the briefing Economic Affairs Secretary SC Garg said inflation has consistently come down since 2014 and will remain below 4 per cent this fiscal Detailing macro-economic fundamentals he said that current account deficit will be less than 2 percent this year and foreign exchange reserves have crossed USD 400 billion On fiscal deficit he said the government is committed to sticking to the target of 32 percent of GDP for the current fiscal but a review would be done in December Stating that the GDP growth slowdown has bottomed out and the economy is turning around he said the International Monetary Fund (IMF) had recently projected that the country would achieve a 8 per cent growth rate soon Indore:Taking a swipe at the CBI for its "clean chit" to Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the Vyapam scam senior Congress leader Kamal
