sexuality for instance have often provoked fierce national debate and political opposition Related News The legal conflict between the producers of Gulab Gang and Sampat Lal was the latest in a long line of controversies involving portrayals of public figures Individual subjects of a wide array of biographies and films have sought legal action against what they perceive as unauthorised or inaccurate representations of their lives Such controversies have surrounded Shekhar Kapur’s depiction of Phoolan Devi in Bandit Queen Hamish McDonald’s depiction of Dhirubhai Ambani in The Polyester Prince and Javier Moro’s book on Sonia Gandhi These controversies raise longstanding questions about freedom of expression and censorship The issues are certainly not new and political controversies and contexts often shape (and restrict) artistic and academic expression in complex ways Works that have touched on taboo subjects such as gender and sexuality for instance have often provoked fierce national debate and political opposition Legal and political battles over cultural representation — whether through film biography or academic research — are complex cases each of which is mired in distinct dynamics shaped both by the substance and style of the work on the one hand and the political actors and interests unsettled by these works on the other However taken together they raise important issues regarding the politics and ethics of cultural production that makes claims of fact or authenticity about living subjects The ethical questions provoked by these films and biographies are not neutral or self-evident and may have different implications depending on the social location and political power of the subjects involved Prominent privileged individuals or powerful movements for instance may effectively use claims of factual inaccuracy for self-interested reasons and effectively censor public debate But the public depiction of subaltern subjects who are socially vulnerable in terms of their gender caste or class position raises a more complex set of questions regarding the political implications of artistic expression Public controversies over such depictions often serve as ideological flashpoints that reveal the national politics of cultural production They are flashpoints precisely because they invoke or unsettle significant national sentiments about social and cultural issues Phoolan Devi’s attempt to stop the screening of Bandit Queen hit a chord in part because it intersected with national debates on public norms about gender Bandit Queen provoked a sharp debate on the representation of rape in the film Kapur’s use of nudity in representing the rapes was particularly unusual in the context of existing genres of popular Hindi and regional cinema at the time One of the deeper ethical quandaries that the film raised was whether the attempt to break silences about the violence of rape was inadvertently recolonising Phoolan Devi by depicting her as a passive rape victim This question has no easy answer The effects of such a depiction are contingent as much on the audience’s reception as they are on the film’s substantive strategies of depiction However such contingencies of audience and strategy are also now located within a highly globalised market for the authentic stories that depict the real life of individuals The life stories of subaltern figures in the context of this market risk becoming the raw material for public consumption in ways that raise troubling ethical questions In effect the endeavour to unmask or make visible socio-economic relations that marginalise certain social groups may produce a new form of economic and cultural extraction At one level this may take place financially (whether subjects are given financial compensation in depictions of their lives and struggles for social justice) At a deeper level there are more complex questions regarding the emotional and ideological labour extracted from the subaltern subject In a globalised age of cultural consumption in what ways have we become accustomed to safely consuming the “authentic” stories of subaltern groups’ hardships and struggles for survival The stakes are heightened by the global reach of the Bollywood industry These issues have long haunted Western and global processes of cultural production and consumption Slumdog Millionaire for example sought to portray the realism of poverty in India both by filming large portions of the film in Mumbai’s well-known slums and by using child actors who are actual residents of Dharavi Despite the film’s success the child actors continued to reside in the same conditions Meanwhile the success of the film with middle-class audiences in the US was intimately linked to the desires of a fragile American middle class for an authentic depiction of poverty that could safely be projected onto a subaltern figure in an “other” cultural and national context Thus the child actors provided a form of emotional labour that eased the economic and social anxieties of an American middle class facing the prospects of its own decline The ethical and political issues surrounding a film such as Gulab Gang thus extend far beyond the specific facts around legality and accuracy After all there is never any simple or unmediated access to the reality of someone’s life Rather the controversy calls for deeper reflection on the relationship of extraction that often places the economic cultural and emotional labour of the subaltern at the heart of national and global cultural production The writer is Glenda Dickerson Collegiate Professor of Women’s Studies at University of Michigan-Ann Arbor US For all the latest Opinion News download Indian

Congress managed to wrest seats from it in Rajasthan and Gujarat the big story of the by-elections is UP Riding high after its near-sweep of Lok Sabha seats in the state in the 2014 general election the BJP leadership expected to do well in all 11 seats in UP that went to polls Instead the Samajwadi Party which has been facing flak for running an ineffective government won eight seats including Rohaniya which is part of the Varanasi parliamentary constituency represented by Prime Minister Narendra Modi Local factors influence by-elections and the SP may have been helped by the BSP’s absence from the fray Consolidation of opposition votes unlike in the Lok Sabha election which featured multi-cornered contests may have led to the BJP’s poor performance But more than all these the results may be an indictment of the party MPs’ recent communal campaigns Perhaps UP’s BJP leaders misread the general election result A consolidation of Hindu votes helped the party overcome caste and class divides and win 71 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats in the state But the UP voter didn’t go to the polling booth to keep the communal pot boiling: she voted BJP because its prime ministerial candidate advocated governance Voters in UP — and elsewhere — were charmed by Modi’s promise to bring down the prices of essentials and create jobs; he certainly didn’t speak of “love jihad” But the BJP campaign led by Gorakhpur MP Adityanath focused on whipping up communal hatred Constant social tension and the atmosphere of fear have crippled daily life including economic activities in the state The losses it is to be hoped will make the BJP realise the limits of the Hindus-under-siege propaganda The party must go back to the drawing board and rethink the strategy of depending on hate agendas to fight elections The results from Rajasthan and Gujarat — states that the party had swept in the general election in May — must also worry the BJP The Congress has done well and won six of the 13 seats that went to polls after BJP MLAs quit to fight parliamentary elections as it did in the recent by-elections in Uttarakhand Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka Clearly the grand old party though rudderless at the Centre is in the reckoning in the states And the BJP which had come to power promising solutions for all of India’s ills has embarrassed itself by pursuing communal politics along

hospitals are overflowing with dengue and chikungunya patients The rain hasn’t been unusual or exceptional It is August and it rains as much in a normal monsoon year But if the downpour doesn’t drain off rain leads to waterlogging which allows mosquitoes to breed In the midst of these building crises Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor is busy looking for new battles with Delhi’s elected government Najeeb Jung has reportedly cancelled appointments made by the state government to the posts of health secretary and public works department secretary and announced a three-member panel comprising retired bureaucrats to review 400 files cleared by the Arvind Kejriwal government The state government and the LG have been at loggerheads and the latter’s eagerness to embarrass the former has been on show But does LG Jung really need to embark on petty confrontations at a time when the city’s crumbling infrastructure needs an urgent co-ordinated response from all the involved agencies It is well known that Delhi’s bane has been the multiplicity of governing authorities — the Centre-appointed LG the elected state government three municipal corporations and a nominated municipal council Far too often they work at cross-purposes and fiercely guard their respective turfs while failing to deliver on their tasks This injustice to Delhi’s growing population must end It is high time these agencies figure out common ground divide responsibilities coordinate and ensure that public utilities function and civic infrastructure is built and maintained instead of remaining preoccupied in blamegames For how long after all will India be the country that has the expertise to launch missions to Mars but that can’t or won’t fix its drainage Earlier in August the Delhi High Court ruled that the constitution conceives the LG as the primary executive authority for the national capital and that the status of Delhi is closer to that of a Union Territory than a full-fledged state The state government’s appeal is pending in the Supreme Court For now however it needs to respect the HC interpretation But it is equally and more important for the LG to rise beyond a literal interpretation of the law and recognise the spirit of the constitution The two offices — of the LG and the CM — work best in tandem Their open battles are deeply embarrassing and debilitating for Delhi’s citizenry and

help them raise funds from the market Banks weighed down by huge bad loans a legacy of their lending during the go-go days of buoyant economic growth have welcomed the infusion of funds though many analysts reckon the amount is inadequate considering the scale of challenges ahead The government may have been guided by the views of the RBI which had earlier indicated that the funds set aside this year would be adequate especially with the regulator tweaking the rules relating to revaluation reserves and deferred tax assets to make it easier for Indian banks to meet Basel III or global capital norms Both the government and the RBI too have said in the past that capital would not be a constraint for local banks when credit growth picks up along with an economic reboundWhile this latest liquidity support is bound to be cheered the move also raises some fundamental issues Primarily it is the issue of public funds or taxpayer money being provided year after year for well over two decades to a set of intermediaries without any intrinsic changes in the governance of these lenders In any listed entity investors who provide capital have a legitimate right to question the management and its promoters on the returns generated on these funds which in the case of many state-owned banks is negative In a sense constant infusion of funds over the years by successive governments without ensuring structural changes and accountability may have created a problem of moral hazard This government has started addressing some of these challenges but the pace of change aimed at bringing about transformation in governance of these banks has been slow A key recommendation of the PJ Nayak committee was that the government should form a Bank Investment Company which would act as a holding company to house While this latest liquidity support is bound to be cheered the move also raises some fundamental issues Primarily it is the issue of public funds or taxpayer
