by birth but a son of the soil as much as the Thackerays Also a man who so perfectly justifies the city’s title as a “jadui nagri (city of miracles)” which he said is how a Raj Kapoor film first described Bombay He was born in a joint family of 60 members near Babulnath temple (the one you see on the left as you turn from Marine Drive to the right) and got himself an MBA from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies The family’s cotton trading business was on the decline But Uday was a born entrepreneur and financial wizard in a jadui nagri He had a friend who worked at Nelco the Tata electronics company that was usually short of cash So it would discount its bills for 90 days with banks that charged 17 per cent interest Uday noted that the banks paid their depositors only 6 per cent and enjoyed an 11 per cent arbitrage So he approached some friends and family and offered to borrow from them at 12 per cent (twice the bank rate) and lent it to Nelco at 16 per cent The 4 per cent in the middle was his And “everybody knew it is a Tata company it will pay back” That was the beginning of one of India’s most remarkable banking success stories He met Anand Mahindra as a customer then just back from Harvard to work at Mahindra Ugine and they got along so well he offered to invest in a business Uday was starting Thereby Kotak Mahindra was born He enticed two more of

it worth now It is Rs 640 crore” His market cap is now Rs 62000 crore That is the kind of place Mumbai is Or rather was “Was” because as Uday also says the city is now tiring Good professionals don’t

Express archive photo Related News India wallows so luxuriously in history that the desire to bring it back to life is almost excusable But when it amounts to raising the dead and organising entertainment events around them it can get a bit eerie Even so the singer Chitra Singh has failed to get a stay on an event at Delhi’s Siri Fort Auditorium billed as “Jagjit Singh live in concert” Which is clearly an illogical and untenable promise since Singh departed the mortal plane in 2011 Share This Article Related Article Apparently the organisers have extracted the voice of the enormously popular ghazal singer from various live performances and backed it up with the band which used to play with him But that band on stage was all that was alive about the performance Admittedly the organisers were on to a good thing Nothing moves hearts and minds in India as forcefully as the idea of bringing the past back to life This year entire ministries in the Central government have been tirelessly pursuing this goal But it’s not an exclusively Indian fantasy Hollywood has been dying to bring lucrative dead actors back to life and starring in new movies Digital technologies has been used to complete films and shows whose actors died inconsiderately before shooting was completed Gladiator and the second season of Dallas benefited from the prolongation of screen life Coca-Cola advertising has featured James Cagney Humphrey Bogart and Louis Armstrong while a liquor ad was built around Bruce Lee The prolongation of intellectual property and brands — which is what performers generate — is obviously an attractive goal to shoot for To have a girl band singing for decades on end saves the trouble and expense of reinventing girl bands But presenting a singer “live” when he’s not on stage may strike some fans as strangely creepy For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsSuresh Prabhu the Railways Minister has been ranked as one of the best (one poll rated him as ‘the best’) performing ministers in the Narendra Modi government for making the Railways Ministry on a more decisive development path Prabhu is working on a clutch of issues that includes expansion of the broad gauge lines and improving passenger safety But one needs to wait and watch how can Prabhu implement the expansion strategy given the severe cash crunch in the Ministry something the Minister himself has admitted Suresh Prabhu Railway Minister Reuters Prabhu’s greater focus seems to be on bullet trains It is a stand-out project for him He believes that when the bullet train will roll out in 2023 Indians will be proud of their Railways and then Prabhu – and by obvious implication Modi — would go down in history as leaders who put Indian Railways on the international map Is that an achievement we the Indians should be proud of Should bullet trains be a priority for the Ministry of Railways and for the government of India or the needs of 25 million daily passengers of Indian Railways crisscrossing the entire country Clearly the comfort of a thousand ‘elite’ passengers in a cosmopolitan Mumbai-Ahmedabad stretch can’t be the priority Safety conditions Anil Kakodkar Committee which had been set up to review the safety conditions in Indian Railways had recommended measures that would make the entire length of the track (115000 kilometres) relatively safe: but the recommendations remain largely unimplemented because that would cost Rs 100000 crore and the government says that it cannot mobilise so much money for this specific job So the average rail passenger is left to the mercy of the Almighty Then the same government has the dynamism and the diplomatic muscle to raise Rs 100000 crore for a bullet train to cover a length of 500 kilometres which would possibly cater to a thousand (or at the most a couple of thousand) cash-rich passengers who can afford the stiff fare of a bullet trainWe have to take a call — Rs 100000 crore should be spent for the benefit of 25 million ordinary passengers or for just 2000 elite passengers Another question is if countries with a per capita income of 50000 dollars are balking at the idea of a bullet train as unaffordable why we Indians with just 1500 dollars per capita income are prepared to splurge our scant resources on a ‘dream project’ Can there a more convoluted priority Some would argue that we do not need to ‘afford’ a bullet train as we do not have to pay for it; the money will come from the Japan government They buy this argument because our government has tried to sell it that way: That we managed to get this giveaway from Japan with our diplomatic skills No soft loan from Japan We should know that no country offers a free lunch to another; it always extracts its pound of flesh in the bargain Japanese coffers are slush with money That is why they advance money to their citizens free of interest with a view to rev up both production and consumption If they earn even 01 per cent interest by lending money to India then for them it is a sweet deal For us too it would have been a sweet deal if it would have been just a soft loan The loan however is tied up with conditions — that India would buy the entire rolling stock for the bullet train from Japan Additionally India is obliged to buy the bulk of equipment and the locomotives from Japan itself for safety reasons — otherwise they say they could not guarantee the safety record of the Japanese Shinkansen Railways So Japanese have ensured that their money (Rs 80000 crore out of the total project cost of Rs 100000 crore) is well-spent — on buying Japanese goods and investing in Japanese skilled personnel Again Japan is not transferring the technological know-how If and when India goes for a second bullet train project it would again have to look to Japan After the first bullet train project is completed the Japanese will go back happy their money having been well spent India will be left with the onerous task of repaying the money (principal and interest) to Japan and then make up for the operational cost of running a bullet train What should be the extent of resources to be generated from the project to make it profitable or at least to make it break-even Assuming that there would be no cost escalation in the project Rs 200 crore would be spent per kilometre (Rs 100000 crore for 500 kilometres) What should be the ticket price for travel between Mumbai and Ahmedabad in two hours — let us remember that the managing body will have to cover the recurrent operational expenses and also recover the cost of one-time investment from the ticket price Cost factor In Japan where the government refuses to subsidise the Shinkansen trips an hour-long journey costs 100 dollars The average Japanese is rich (50000 dollar per capita income) and the benevolent employers in Japan pick up the entire travelling tab of their employees Can an average Indian afford 100 dollars (almost Rs 6800 at current rate) even for a two-hour journey How many Indian employers will be ready or be able to bear such expense for their employees Or do we have the deep pockets like that of China Chinese Railways is struggling with $318 billion of debt and $16 billion of annual loss on account of its 10000 mile long High Speed Rail (HSR) the Chinese bullet train?
