witnessed last week was the abject surrender of a powerful government to the forces of civil society Indeedone should say Congress Party rather than the government because the UPA partners have been conspicuous by their absence In any other democracyat least oneif not moreCabinet ministers would resign In Aprilthe UPA dealt with Anna Hazare deftly It was almost like the Indian cricket team which had just won the World Cup In Augustrather like the Indian teamthe Congress faced a whitewash What had changed My own hypothesis is that after the departure of Sonia Gandhi for her operation abroadthe Congress fell apart It has been used to constant guidance from 10 Janpath Any independent thinking or decision making has been discouraged all these years Now with the benign control gonethe Congress became rudderless It had an advantage over Anna Hazare derived from its legitimacy as elected representatives It presumed the mantle of democracy and went into an aggressive overdrive The attempt to defame Anna as a corrupt man by several senior Congress spokespersons was frightening and pathetic at the same time It was obvious that the Congress could not tolerate any oppositionno matter how small The idea that the alleged misuse of Rs 22 lakh was a serious offence was just laughable That kind of bribe would not get you the watchmans post in Adarsh Building It was at this juncture that the Congress began to lose the battle Its assertion that no protest is valid while a Bill is with Parliament is not worth debate In all democraciesthe people can protest beforeduring and after a Bill has been passed by their Parliament I have witnessed massive demonstrations in Parliament Square during the Fox Hunting Bill The UPA has also treated Parliament with contempt in the matter of the PAC and its reportnor has it let the JPC fulfill its mandate It is rather late in the day for Congress to wrap itself in the mantle of Parliamentary legitimacy By the evening of Tuesdaythe family had arrived to extract Congress from its mess Rahul Gandhi came and read the Riot Act You could see it in the changed demeanour of the same spokespeople who had swaggered earlier in the day and now were eating the humble pie All pretence of legality of police and magistrates notwithstandingAnna was released on the command of an ordinary MP who holds no position higher than general-secretary of the Congress and a member of the Gang of Four during the absence of the president So much for sovereignty of Parliament Can you blame the crowds in the streets supporting Anna Hazare for not trusting

ganesh Mandals for up comeing Ganesha Festival at Girgaon in MumbaiExpress Photos by Pradip Das 30th Aug 2016 Mumbai Top News For 43 years Nana Vedak (60) has been making Ganapatis at the famous mandals in the city more alluring and attractive For so many years he has been designing and adding shine to the ornaments of the deity Vedak who belongs to the third generation in his family specialising in making ornaments for idols designs the crown bangles and necklaces Weighing almost 72 kilograms the ornaments are made of almost 50-60 kilograms of silver while the rest is plated in gold “I have been making ornaments for the famous pandals in the city including Lalbaug Ganesha Galli Sahyadri GSB Wadala among others We start our work almost four months in advance to cater to almost 48 pandals in the city The rest of the days me and my team makes ornaments for the idols at temples in the city” Vedak said Vedak with 17 workers to his aid distributes work among his four centres across the city The work is challenging he claims “We need to take the exact measurement of the mould of the Ganapati before beginning to design the ornaments The challenge with making them is it must suit the texture colour combination of the idol and make it more appealing Most of the idols are made of clay and we receive a lot of flak from organisers even if a single part of the idol gets scratched” he added While crowns are gold-plated smaller idols receive crowns completely made of gold In some ornaments there are diamonds fitted to add to the glow “We get a decent amount of money for making the ornaments on the idol more appealing Sometimes the ornaments are preserved by the mandals after the festival and returned to us for gold plating again the next year Sometimes they ask us to redesign the ornaments if the size of the idol gets changed” Vedak added and claimed that they had receiving orders from 23 more pandals in the city Vedak has been catering to mandals across Ratnagiri Malavan Palghar and others Though not very profitable he claimed he does the job because he adores it “One of the reasons I continued pursuing this for so many years is because it is my family tradition Also I believe the Lord has been giving me enough to meet my requirements What is important is for my clients to be happy with the work and the devotees to feel pleasant after seeing their deity” he added The challenges to his job he claims are differences brought by various pandals to shapes of the idols each year “Different mandals try to bring variations with shape and form of the idol which makes it more difficult for me to shape the ornament Before we even begin to colour it we first test its fitting with the idol” he added What keeps him going he believes is it’s the wish of the Lord “I am not the one doing it as I believe I have a calling from the Lord to do so My only aim is to make sure the idol looks even nicer with my designed ornaments” he added For all the
