Wednesday committed a faux pas in Mahad when he apparently referred to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as "opposition leader" "An opposition leader says nothing happened in the last 60 years Their thinking is that only one man can take the country forward Rahul Gandhi PTI "This thinking raises a question mark on Ambedkar Mahatma Gandhi Sardar Patel Nehru It not only raises a question mark on them (about what they did for the country) but also you (the people) and your forefathers" Rahul said addressing his maiden campaign rally for the October 15 Maharashtra Assembly poll The Congress vice presidentcould have been referring to the BJP as the opposition party in the state where his partyhas ruled in alliance with the NCP for the last 15 years "It is you your sweat and blood that has brought the country where it is today" the Congress leader said Modi has been targeting Congress at his poll rallies saying "Those who ruled the country for 60 years are seeking account of what I did in 60 days Have they given the account of what they did in 60 years" Later addressing another poll rally at Ausa in Latur Rahul Gandhi launched a scathing attack on Narendra Modi for questioning the contribution of Congress in nation building "They are saying nothing has happened in India in the last 60 years So much was done and this work was not done by a single person but by the people of the country When they say nothing has been done in last 60 years they are questioning you the common man" he said "The Prime Minister comes here and speaks of the Gujarat model Be it education or health Show me one sector where Maharashtra lags behind (Gujarat) Maharashtra is ahead" Rahul said Comparing the style of functioning of former Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and Modi when he was his counterpart in Gujarat the Congress leader said "There is a diference Your CM did good work but didn’t do any marketing On the other side (Gujarat) there was marketing" He said once voted back to

He was the I of the NSCN-IM which spearheaded the longest-running insurgency in independent India Isak Chisi Swu a Sumi Naga who headed the Naga struggle with Thuingaleng Muivah a Naga from Manipur hills had nearly negotiated a historic peace accord for his people with the Indian government before he died in New Delhi aged 87 on Tuesday A Framework Accord was signed in August last year between representatives of the NSCN-IM and the Indian government as Swu’s health slipped perhaps to make it clear that he endorsed the peace deal It was important to let the Naga community know that Swu ailing for a while was in the loop and was committed to a negotiated end to the insurgency which dates back to the 1940s The details of the accord have not been made public though the guns are silent in the Naga hills a clear indication that Swu and Muivah had public backing Swu who joined the rebels nearly six decades ago and Muivah had revived the Naga rebellion even after a section of the powerful Naga National Council signed the Shillong Accord in 1975 With a handful of cadres — and help from China — Swu and Muivah continued the armed struggle through the 1980s If Muivah provided the military leadership Swu was the ideologue whose connections with the church helped to keep the numerous tribes united under the banner of the NSCN The departure of SS Khaplang a Hemi Naga from Myanmar dented the claim of the NSCN to represent the whole of the Naga people but Swu and Muivah ensured that their organisation remained the representative platform of the insurgency The extended ceasefire since the 1990s had the wholehearted support of Naga civil society which enabled the two leaders to prepare their cadres for a negotiated peace settlement with the Indian state Nagaland of course will mourn Swu’s death but his absence may not derail the peace talks because he has departed after preparing the ground for a politics that looks at liberation not merely in the terms of armed struggle

took an actor from Bollywood to shine a light on the yawning gaps in Indian journalism It shames me a little to acknowledge this but Aamir Khan through Satyamev Jayate has done what us hacks should have been doing over and over again Had we been drawing attention to the unspeakable and unspoken of horrors of Indian society in more robust toneswe may perhaps have not seen a khap in Uttar Pradesh daring to ban women from going out in the evenings last week Or the horrific stripping of a teenaged girl by what seemed like an ordinary group of young men in Guwahati The smiles on their faces as they tore the clothes off the helplessyoung girl in full view of a camera were scary and could have come straight out of Satyamev Jayate If Aamir Khan has come in for some snarky criticism and snide analysishe should pay it no heed because it comes from journalists who are jealous of his ability to talk aboutin the most civilised waythings that we ignore If you have lived in India all your lifeyou learn that there are things about Indian society that are so awful that the only way to deal with them is to look the other way So we walk past the signs advertising clinics that use ultrasound machines to kill baby girls while they are still in their mothers wombs We ignore the statistics that tell us that every other Indian child has been sexually abused and that more than sixty per cent have been abused by a close relative We ignore domestic violence unless it happens to someone we know and even then we try to keep it quiet Andas for repugnant acts of untouchability that continue to be practised daily against Dalitswe disregard them even when they happen in our own kitchens So thank you Aamir Khan for recognising the need to draw attention to social evils that may have disappeared long ago if we in the media had made them socially unacceptable by drawing as much attention to them asfor instancewe have done to the election of the President of India On a personal levelI must admit that I have watched Satyamev Jayate with a deepening sense of guilt When I started to write this column more than twenty years agothere were no other women who had been lucky enough to land a weekly political column AndI resolved that I would bring a feminine touch to mine by writing about the sort of things that Aamir deals with in his show I feel bad that I have not done this enough and confess that this is partly because of the general disdain for human interest issues among us political pundit types In print journalismyou learn quickly that if you want to go on writing about things that fall in the human interest categorythen you find yourself taken less seriously by fellow political pundits Peer pressure is a powerful thing When private television channels first appearedin the early ninetiesthey presented vital human interest issues better than newspapers and magazines had ever done If there was an atrocity against Dalits in some remote villagethey sent their best reporters out to find out more and this resulted in many instances of excellent television reporting Butin the past couple of yearsthey too have lost their way So most television journalists now fall over themselves (and their colleagues) trying to anchor a chat show and when they land onethey compete with each other to produce noisy prime time shows in which the same people pop out of little boxes to say the same dreary things on every channel Since an evening talk show is considered by television journalists to be the high point of their careerwe no longer see the kind of show that Aamir is producing Satyamev Jayate is television reporting at its finest because Aamir and his team have taken the pains not just to carefully research their subjects but to travel outside the environs of Delhi and Mumbai to find victims of social abuse The more I have watched the showthe more guilty I have felt for not having donein long years in journalismwhat Aamir Khan has been able to do in a few episodes of Satyamev Jayate Well done Aamir and please find the time to do manymany more shows because you are the first Bollywood actor to use your enormous celebrity and the immense power of television to try bring about necessary social change So from this humble (and humbled) columnistplease accept deepest salutations and the hope that Satyamev Jayate lives on for many seasons Follow

victim Suzzet Jordon during the walk with the research Scholars of Jadavpur University in Kolkata (Express photo by Partha Paul) Related News I’m just another woman A simple woman who loves her family loves her children and will not take crap” That’s how Suzette Jordan described herself the first time I met her That was in 2013 and just a few weeks ago Suzette had waived her right to anonymity as a rape survivor and revealed her name and face on television “I want to fight wide open so that people can see me and see my pain” she explained “This is my way of fighting Besides I have nothing to be ashamed of” On the night of February 5 2012 a gang of men raped Suzette in her hometown Kolkata She recounted to me the traumatic event: “I tried to open the car but the door was auto-locked He started to beat me up When he shoved a gun into my mouth I thought it was the end I couldn’t breathe or swallow I could taste my own blood He was trying to strangulate me And then he laughed The others were cheering “I was consumed with fright and rage It’s a terrible feeling — like you’re alive but somebody has buried you in a coffin Even after he raped me he beat me as if there were an age-old vendetta between us But we didn’t know each other at all He kept asking his friends to rape me He had the power And that made him feel good about himself” Barely alive Suzette was thrown out of the moving car a few hours later One thought gave her the strength to get home — “I am alive and I can see my children” For three days Suzette couldn’t leave the bed Her older daughter a teenager stood beside her like a rock “She was like a mother to me” said Suzette “So compassionate understanding Rhea just held me let me cry nursed me took care of me” On day four bolstered by family she reached the police station “I made a conscious choice to file a complaint People advised me to keep quiet forget about it That I would be buying myself a lot of trouble But I wanted to fight for justice” Horrible and humiliating were the words Suzette used to describe the filing of the FIR “Each and every policeman there came one by one and asked me ‘Are you sure you were actually raped’ ‘How was it possible to be raped in a car’ ‘What were the positions in which you were raped’ A prisoner in the lock-up there who had been held for the rape of an 11-year-old girl also heard the entire conversation” The doctor at the public hospital too lacked compassion Said Suzette “He asked me to narrate my story in full public view Then during the physical examination he actually commented on my tattoo ‘Hmm Nice tattoo’ he said” Her determination to pursue the case cost Suzette There was public humiliation at the hands of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who insinuated that her story had been cooked up to malign her government She was dubbed a prostitute stigmatised denied employment Then came death threats from her attackers Yet despite the odds she never failed to speak of her “angels” — her family friends lawyers and police officers like Damayanti Sen who investigated her case and concluded she was telling the truth Over time Suzette and I became friends I was amazed at how she celebrated life There were many terrible days at court She had very few means was finding it hard to get a job But she pursued happiness with determination “Just because I have been raped people feel I have no right to live and I certainly have no right to be happy I feel as if I am being blamed for being alive But why shouldn’t I enjoy life” she would say Suzette grew into an iconic figure raising the humanitarian concerns of survivors of sexual violence at various forums with great eloquence So sparklingly alive was she that her death came as a terrible shock In March this year Suzette succumbed to encephalitis At a memorial meeting we organised in Mumbai dozens of people even those who had never met her spoke about Suzette touching their lives I was reminded of something Suzette had said: “If I had chosen to just accept injustice submissively I would never be the right role model for my daughters” When I visited her grave in Kolkata I felt her presence as I gazed at her photograph lovingly placed by her children on her grave But I was worried about the fate of the case There was news that her attackers on hearing of her demise were distributing sweets in anticipation of their freedom Clearly I had underestimated the power of Suzette’s determination Even in death she didn’t back down On December 10 a Kolkata court held three men guilty of raping Suzette Jordan She
