In an environment in which a monetary easing was expected to help push up growththis sudden tightening was a shock Interest rates are still high The measures have undermined confidence about monetary policy easing After the liquidity squeeze failed to restore rupee stabilitycame tariff hikes and restrictions on gold and silver imports and tightening of capital controls under FEMA Restrictions have been imposed on capital outflows by firms and households Alreadyfirms were suffering from the difficulties of the policy environment If some of them were going to stay healthy by investing abroadthat was made more cumbersome Hardly any money was going out by individuals investing abroad But putting a restriction on these trickles sent out a bad signal to an already nervous market These measures did not inspire confidence that the governments focus was investment and growth Worsethey suggested that Indias economic reforms are not deep-seated and can be reversed for short-term ends With the opening up of trade and the capital accountthe currency market has grown very large Old solutionslike selling a few billion dollars from our reserves to prevent appreciationno longer work Out of the three corners of the impossible trinitya country can choose only two For the last two decadesIndia had chosen to move towards an open economy and a flexible exchange rate In the face of the QE taperingit means choosing between rupee stability and lowering interest rates But the government did not like having to make the choice It wanted both The only way to control the currency in such a situation is to close the economy When the size of the market has shrunk adequatelythe RBI can intervene and prevent depreciation without much loss of reserves If the rupee remains volatilethe government has to choose to either roll out the next measure it has on its listor to find an exit route FEMA allows the RBI and government to shut off all cross-border transactions for sale and purchase of assets The market believes that as long at the rupee defence strategy remains in placethe authorities might impose restrictions on various other capital flows This expectation has caused further gloom We should not lose sight of the big picture of Indian economic policy The story of the last 20 years is one of slow but steady economic reform resulting in 7 per cent trend GDP growth The day we walk away from the promise of slow but steady reformthe expectation of future productivity growth is shattered This adversely affects the credit rating of Indiastock pricesinvestment in India by locals and by foreignersand capital flight from India The needless battle the government has picked on the rupeeand the measures it has takenhave reinforced the already growing despondence about economic reforms It has raised new questions on the India growth story The government must immediately undo all the steps that have reversed economic reforms of trade or finance or capital

permissive under scriptures cannot be equated with mandate” observed CT Selvam judge of the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court while deciding an appeal against a lower court order disallowing the proposed marriage of a minor Muslim girl Prominently reported by ETV Urdu the ruling is likely to be denounced at the Muslim Personal Law Board’s forthcoming meeting in Jaipur Since its inception in 1972 the board has opposed every legislation and judicial precedent which goes against the traditional understanding of Muslim law and in its opinion amounts to “mudakhalat fid-din (interference with religion)” For about nine decades India has been trying to eradicate the evil of child marriage and its ugly consequences In 1926 the eminent social reformer Diwan Bahadur Harbilas Sarda of Ajmer had as member of the Central Legislative Assembly piloted a Hindu child marriage bill The bill’s context was the horrendous problem of infant widows In many Hindu families girls were married in their infancy to male children of tender age Given that the child mortality rate was high many girls would lose their “husbands” and remain “widows” for the rest of their lives because the remarriage of a widow was supposedly prohibited by religion Seventy years earlier Pandit Iswar Chandra Vidyasagar had tried to save the girl child from such a plight by securing the enactment of the Hindu Widows’ Remarriage Act of 1856 But the law went against popular religious belief and didn’t have the desired consequences It was realised that the problem had to be nipped in the bud by the prohibition of the marriage of children male and female Diwan Bahadur took upon himself the task of ensuring there was a minimum age for marriage fixed by law His Hindu child marriage bill was bitterly opposed by the pundits of the time who accused him of singling out their community for “anti-religion” legal reform On the advice of a select committee headed by Sir Moropant Joshi the word “Hindu” was deleted from the bill and when enacted it was to apply to all communities Under Muslim personal law marriage is permitted between a boy and a girl who have attained “bulugh (puberty)” The earliest this could happen is about age 12 and nine respectively and unless attained earlier it is presumed to take place at age 15 for both Notably these age limits are not set by the Quran or Hadith but are mentioned in the books of jurisprudence written in the early years of Islam And yet when the Hindu child marriage bill which was popularly known as the “Sarda bill” was turned into a general law Muslim religious leaders also jumped into the fray to oppose it tooth and nail Overawed by the religious outcry among both Hindus and Muslims most assembly members were reluctant to support it But Diwan Bahadur’s emotionally charged appeal on voting day “I beg you gentlemen to brush aside all objections sacerdotal or profane ancient or modern based on tradition or custom which stint our growth or stand in the way of our achieving our goal” ensured that the Child Marriage Restraint Act of 1929 was passed But the newly introduced law was not accepted by either community The late Justice VR Krishna Iyer had once told me that in 1929 itself there was a child marriage in Diwan Bahadur’s own family In 2006 the 77-year-old act which prescribed mild punishments for those guilty of child marriage was replaced with the new Prohibition of Child Marriage Act The new law prescribes more severe penalties Also every child marriage will remain voidable so that the minor party can get it annulled by a court any time up to two years after attaining majority The law also empowers magistrates to issue injunctions to stop a planned child marriage — in the Madurai case a local magistrate had acted under this statutory provision The parents of the Muslim girl involved challenged the magistrate’s order in the high court claiming that since the 2006 act is repugnant to Muslim religious law it “cannot apply” to Muslims But the bench ruled that the act “crossed all barriers of personal laws” The judicial dictum in the Madurai case is unassailable Many merely permissive provisions of traditional Muslim law including on bigamy and unilateral divorce are unjustifiably seen as scriptural mandates This is the premise of stiff opposition to any reform of Muslim personal law The

open to him and started to motor There were four minutes left on the clock at the Aztec stadium and Brazil’s captain really just wanted the game to end His team mates felt the same way and were knocking the ball about nonchalantly when the marauding full back spotted the chance of a fourth goal even from way back in his own half File photo of Carlos Alberto Reuters "It all started with Tostao winning the ball out on the left" Carlos Alberto told FIFAcom "He played it to Piazza Piazza to Gerson and Gerson to Clodoaldo "We were winning 3-1 and the team was playing the ball around just running the clock down I was at the back taking a breather All I wanted was for the referee to bring the game to an end "Clodoaldo went past three players and when he laid it off to Rivelino on the left wing I remembered what (coach Mario) Zagallo had said about pulling the opposition over to the left "I had a look and saw that the whole of my flank was wide open because Jairzinho was over on the left and had (Italy’s Giacinto) Facchetti with him for company "I said to myself: ‘I’m going to wait and if the ball goes to Jairzinho and I sense that Jairzinho’s going to play it to Pele then I’m going to go because I know that Pele will give me the ball’ "And that’s what happened I gave it all I had and found the energy to sprint at least 50 metres and get in a position to score the goal” The sprint set Carlos Alberto up beautifully as Pele leisurely knocked the ball out wide for the full back to storm in and hammer it home from 11 metres out He kept on running and when the ball hit the net the Brazil captain jumped for joy behind the goal looking almost as relieved as he was delighted Along with Diego Maradona’s brilliant individual goal for Argentina against England at the same stadium in the 1986 quarter-finals it is remembered as one of the great World Cup goals and was the icing on Carlos Alberto’s soccer cake "Nobody talks about Pele’s goal the first goal the second goal" Carlos Alberto told the BBC years later "It is always about the fourth goal I think it was the best goal ever scored in a World Cup" Watch the wonder goal here: UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The United Nations Security Council is due to vote on Thursday on rival US and Russian bids to renew an international inquiry into chemical weapons attacks in Syria diplomats said a move that could trigger Russia’s 10th veto to block action on Syria The mandate for the joint inquiry by the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) which found the Syrian government used the banned nerve agent sarin in an April 4 attack expires at midnight Thursday The United States was first to ask for a vote on its draft resolution followed quickly by Russia A resolution needs nine votes in favour and no vetoes by the United States France Russia Britain or China to be adopted Diplomats say there is little support among the 15-member council for the Russian draft which Russian UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia has said aims to correct “systemic errors” of the inquiry known as the Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) Russia has vetoed nine resolutions on Syria since the conflict started in 2011 including blocking an initial US bid on Oct 24 to renew the JIM saying it wanted to wait for the release two days later of the inquiry’s report that blamed a sarin gas attack on the Syrian government “The United States hopes the Security Council will stand united in the face of chemical weapons use against civilians and extend the work of this critical group” the US mission to the United Nations said in a statement on Wednesday “Not doing so would only give consent to such atrocities while tragically failing the Syrian people who have suffered from these despicable acts” it said While Russia agreed to the 2015 creation of the inquiry known as the Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) it has consistently questioned its findings which also concluded that the Syrian government used chlorine as a weapon several times A spokesman for the US mission to the United Nations said on Monday that Russia has refused to engage in negotiations on the US draft resolution Diplomats said the United States had amended its draft in a bid to win Russian support British UN Ambassador Matthew Rycroft warned on Wednesday that if the inquiry ended: “The only victors would be people who want to use chemical weapons in Syria which is the (Syrian President Bashar) al-Assad regime plus Daesh (Islamic State)” “Everyone in the Security Council would be shooting ourselves in the foot if we allowed that to happen” he said The Russian mission to the United Nations was not immediately available for comment on the impending council vote If the inquiry is not renewed Nebenzia said on Monday: “It may send a bad signal but the way the investigation has been conducted sends an even worse signal” Syria agreed to destroy its chemical weapons in 2013 under a
