NewsNitish Kumar’s return to the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) ensured his continuance as Bihar chief minister but events of the last two months have indicated that his Janata Dal (United) party might lose its hitherto dominant position vis-a-vis the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) And the BJP is clearly in no mood to remain dependent on Nitish any more It has started focusing on the 2019 general elections and has started chalking out its own plans Its Bihar state unit is busy strengthening its organisation at booth levels while national president Amit Shah’s visit to the state next month is being eagerly awaited by all cadre and state-level leaders The BJP is in no mood to be dependent on Nitish for winning elections and the party has started focusing on general election which is one and half years away The state unit has already chalked out plans to strengthen its organization to booth levels The state unit is eagerly waiting for national president Amit Shah’s visit next month in the state While the JD(U) is backing the padyatra which was supended due to torrential floods the BJP is backing a proposed Kurmi rally by its spokesperson Rajeev Ranjan who was once considered close to Nitish Kumar but changed ranks and joined BJP after differences of opinion Nitish is considered a champion of the Kurmi community which has traditionally voted with the Koeries In fact the two are nicknamed Luv-Kush the twin sons of Lord Rama The Kushwahas or Koeries claim their lineage from Kush while Luv represents the Kurmi community Between the two the Luv-Kush axis accounts for a good 10-12 percent voteshare and they are considered the second dominant caste group within the OBC category after Yadavs (15 percent) Along with Muslims (17 percent) they have traditionally been supporting Lalu Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) But 2014 was one exception when the Yadavs voted for BJP File image of Nitish Kumar PTI The Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) leader and Union minister Upendra Kushwaha claims to represent the Koeries As an alliance partner of the BJP he was successful in transferring the community’s votes to the saffron alliance in 2014 perhaps the first time the Kushwahas and Kurmis voted differently In the 2015 Assembly elections Nitish Kumar turned the tables and got both groups to vote for his "mahagathbandhan" On the other hand Upendra Kushwaha’s party got only two seats in the 243-member Bihar Assembly The BJP fought the 2014 Lok Sabha elections with allies Lok Jan Shakti Party (LJP) and RLSP after Nitish Kumar pulled out of the NDA Together the alliance bagged 31 seats while JD(U) was reduced to just two seats But with Nitish’s return to the fold things have become complicated once again especially with Amit Shah targeting more seats for the party The JD(U) used to being the dominant alliance partner in Bihar used to contest 25 out of 40 Lok Sabha seats but that scenario can be ruled out entirely says Shaibal Gupta of the Asian Development Research Institute who has been advising Nitish on economic issues Challenge for Nitish to retain voter base Rajeev Ranjan is organising a Kurmi rally on 5 November and other BJP leaders are likely to be in attendence "The first Kurmi Ekta Sammelan was organised on 12 February 1994 I feel the need to unite the community again as they are fragmented in areas like Dhanuk Awadhia etc My party has nothing to do with it but I will invite leaders" he said Gupta said the BJP no longer wants to be dependent on Upendra Kushwaha or Nitish Kumar They are targeting the 12 percent votes among OBC with Baniya and Vaishya voters already in their favour "The JD(U) will play second fiddle if it remains part of NDA In fact this would have been on Nitish’s mind even before he decided to join hands with the BJP Even before he broke the ‘mahagathbandhan’ he must have decided on this course of action" Gupta said The astute politician that he is Nitish would have decided to forgo the upper hand for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls knowing his JD(U) would still emerge on top when the 2020 Assembly elections rolls around "This is how a compromise would have been achieved Nitish will lead in the state and allow BJP to take the lead for parliamentary polls" Gupta added But he does disagree that another leader can replace Nitish as a representative of the Luv-Kush community "Rajeev Ranjan is Nitish’s school friend but political compulsions made him to join the BJP He is only trying to establish himself in Nalanda Barh and Biharshareef where the Luv-Kush play a decisive role This is more of a personal turf war" he said Nitish a product of Kurmi Mahasabha In fact the very emergence of Nitish Kumar as a mass leader dates back to 1994 when he was with the Janata Dal the ruling party in Bihar then led by Lalu Prasad Yadav After three years of Lalu’s tenure as chief minister a new social formation was in the works when the Mandal unity started crumbling and the state was witnessing mass murders on caste lines Satish Kumar a prominent CPI leader who was supporting the Lalu government raised alarm bells as Kurmis and Kushwahas strong agricultural communities in central and south Bihar were feeling the brunt of caste-based violence Lalu’s Muslim-Yadav equation threatened other smaller castes within the OBC set-up Satish Kumar himself a Kurmi decided to unite against the Luv-Kush fraternity Satish said Nitish was initially against the idea of calling a caste rally but he along with Brhamnand Mandal and others persuaded him Former Lok Sabha speaker Rabi Ray Ramtahal Chaudhary Urmila Ben Patel and hundreds of other Kurmi leaders eventually attended the rally on 12 February 1994 "Nitish tried to defend Lalu in his speech and the crowd at Gandhi Maidan went berserk A few stones were hurled I appealed and announced that Nitish was like a younger brother and a true leader of the community and that they should let him speak This was the true emergence of Nitish Kumar" he recalled Eight months after that rally George Fernandes Bashishtha Narayan Singh Shakuni Chaudhary and Nitish Kumar broke ranks with Lalu and formed the Samata Party "Samata Party progressed steadily and a large chunk of OBC votes and upper castes who weren’t happy with Lalu Yadav supported the party Nitish later joined NDA and was a part of the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Cabinet" he said However Satish Kumar and Bholanath Singh once considered Nitish Kumar’s political mentors are no longer with the Bihar chief minister today Satish rued Nitish’s political opportunism and lust for power "Nitish has completed his cycle by joining NDA-UPA-NDA But he has lost the faith of Luv-Kush community He is dependent on BJP and is unable to win even two seats on his own" he said However Shaibal Gupta has a different take He believes the developmental agenda pursued by Nitish has changed the caste narratives in the last two decades and he does enjoy the support of every caste in the state Lucknow: Making actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar the chief of the Congress in Uttar Pradesh will not help the party in the assembly elections next year BJP leader Keshav Prasad Maurya said on

tell a story with unique animation and art direction Related News The digital media has been hit by a ‘hurricane’ from ‘sarcasm’ to ‘nationalism’ or debate on ‘creativity’ Be it the mainstream media internet trolls or a layman everyone is struck by the Baahubali phenomenon There has been a debate doing the rounds about how Baahubali 2 has been an eye opener for Bollywood Irrespective of whether the SS Rajamouli directed blockbuster would be a game changer for Hindi cinema or not but the magnum opus has a lot to teach to the Indian film industry inclusive of regional cinema The Telugu cult classic co-produced by Karan Johar has garnered Rs 1200 crore worldwide setting a benchmark case-study for trade analysts However the movie is an alarming signal for regional filmmakers rather than just Bollywood It is a reality check for commerce-driven content writers and film directors especially in Bhojpuri cinema The Bhojpuri film industry is an estimated Rs 2000 crore market Even superstars like Priyanka Chopra have been bitten by the Bhojpuri bug to don the producer’s hat for Bam Bam Bol Raha Hai Kashi In spite of having the National Award-winning Quantico star handling the production the regional flick is completely out of place over-the-top soft porn filled with raunchy music videos and love sequences which objectify the female lead Although Chopra herself is a hardcore feminist and is quite vocal about gender issues even her presence couldn’t help the pathetic creative destruction of regional art In the 1963 Kundan Kumar directorial Ganga Maiyya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo the audience experienced Bhojpuri film craft for the first time Based on the issue of widow remarriage the film was made at the behest of India’s first President Dr Rajendra Prasad who believed in the potential of a Bhojpuri-speaking population as the target audience for culturally driven entertainers In the initial phase Bhojpuri films were either a portrayed on India’s traditional norms and customs or parallel cinema Ganga Kinare Mera Gaon released in 1984 was well received by the audiences for the decent portrayal of female characters as opposed to the obscenity in present Bhojpuri films Since 2004 when actor-turned-politician Manoj Tiwari took over as the Amitabh Bachchan of Bhojpuri films there has been a dearth of powerful scripts Baahubali 2 has broken the myth and misconception regarding the audience’s reservations toward regional filmmakers and actors As far as there is a well-presented visual experience there is no boundary for artists SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus that inspired author Anand Neelakantan’s recent novel ‘The Rise of Sivagami’ is loosely inspired by the story of “Durgesh-Nandini” from celebrated Hindi fiction-comic Chandamama The Prabhas-Anushka Shetty film has proved that in the modern technological age it’s easier to tell a story with unique animation and art direction India’s answer to Lord of the Rings & Game of Thrones that borrowed characters from Hindu mythology are a milestone The USP of Baahubali apart from its visual effects costume design and massive sets is its authentic portrayal of ancient customs and traditions Something that has been missing both in Bollywood as well as Bhojpuri films The Bhojpuri filmmakers have been so driven towards copying the Bombay Film Industry that the narrative from their film has completely vanished Uttar Pradesh Bihar and Jharkhand form a major cluster of Bhojpuri moviegoers There is a rich heritage of mythology tradition culture empires and civilizations in ancient places like Kashi Prayag Mathura Vrindavan Chitrakut Ayodhya Bodh-Gaya Nalanda and Magadha Unfortunately not a single filmmaker from the UP-Bihar belt has attempted a large-scale cultural narrative for the youth audience that has a taste for creativity and innovation The Bhojpuri speaking population accounts for 150 million in India If a well-crafted script with authentic display of North Indian culture is presented before the audience then it would be possible to recreate the magic of Baahubali The fantasy conveyed in regional folklore or fables has far more thrilling impact if wisely interpreted through cinematic lens than any sci-fi movie From ancient civilization to freedom struggle or social and industrial revolution cities such as Varanasi Allahabad Lucknow Kanpur Champaran Patna and Jamshedpur have an account of all historical events Filming a motion picture on such backdrops with a diverse cast and crew could be a game changer in the history of world cinema The success of Baahubali is in an eye-opener for Bhojpuri film industry in the real sense that lies far behind other regional movies both in terms of content and production value The juggling with mediocrity while cashing on single-screen front-benchers has led to the deterioration of cinematic content in Bhojpuri movies A region that has been the origin of extraordinary talents in diverse fields has the worst contribution to Indian film industry in terms of quality and content The reluctance and ignorance on part of Bhojpuri filmmakers has made a mockery of regional film artists Also

Bhojpuri film producers selected more challenging projects with unique scripts instead of ordinary entertainers Bollywood has to certain extent at least attempted to unravel the nuances of UP-Bihar culture in movies like Tanu Weds Manu and Raanjhana If Bhojpuri cinema is genuinely made with similar dedication and commitment then there would be favorable prospects for budding regional filmmakers

Television cameras recorded images of two Sikh groups armed with largely blunt ceremonial swords attacking each other Related News The 30th anniversary of Operation Blue Star on June 6 was marked by a rather unexpected turn of events Television cameras recorded images of two Sikh groups armed with largely blunt ceremonial swords attacking each other The disagreement we were told stemmed from the old tensions around the demand for a Sikh homeland Khalistan In fact in the run up to the anniversary the idea of Khalistan had cropped up frequently as journalists reported a growing nostalgia for Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and his favoured cause One reporter even put forward this question: did the images of warring factions represent the troubled memories of Operation Blue Star or the more worrisome revival of Khalistan The use of the word “nostalgia” to describe the events unfolding in Punjab throws light on how 1984 and its aftermath are often read To be nostalgic about something whether it is a person a place or an event is to first presume its (usually pleasant) existence in the past Yet neither the idea of Khalistan nor Bhindranwale achieved the kind of mass acceptance that is implied in the current spell of nostalgia If Bhindranwale had followers among Sikhs he had as many detractors and opponents in the very same community Despite the popularity of audio-cassettes filled with Bhindranwale’s fiery speeches Khalistan was broadly speaking a non-starter especially among the urban classes It is difficult to be nostalgic about an idea that was met with scepticism from the very beginning The popularity of Bhindranwale-themed memorabilia is offered up as evidence for this nostalgia — shops selling car stickers T-shirts photographs and other knick knacks do brisk business in the bazars around the Golden Temple This we are told is a warning sign Those who put forward this theory might never have seen mass-produced T-shirts printed with the profile of Che Guevara or noticed how quickly Mao Zedong’s handbook on revolution became an instant bestseller once it was repackaged and introduced by Slavoj Zizek the Elvis Presley of cultural theory If Guevara and Mao in their repackaged forms are warning signs they only warn of how commodification can produce banal cultural symbols The popularity of Guevara T-shirts has not to the best of our knowledge caused a political revolution anywhere Perhaps Bhindranwale in his quick-selling profitable commodified form is flourishing more than he ever did when alive for two reasons One the blood and gore the threats and fears connected to his persona are gone He can now exist exactly as his consumers want him to Two a community ravaged by drug addiction and by the corruption of the ruling elite is desperately looking for heroic figures The current pantheon of leaders in Punjab do not inspire any hope for the future A printed T-shirt fills this vacuum without disrupting the socio-political landscape I would suggest that it is not the cultural economy of Bhindranwale products that is central here The collective melancholia that is yet to find its redress is It is telling that despite a flurry of writing in the recent past the two decades of militancy in Punjab remain enveloped in layers of silence The books and articles written on this period tend to be first-hand accounts of soldiers journalists police officers lawyers and the odd writer Reading this literature one gets the impression that defence experts are done discussing the strategic tactics and manoeuvres that could have produced a better military result No doubt this is a valuable body of archives that helps us gain an insight into the events Yet it tells us very little about the men and women who were caught up in the crossfire of those who were neither militants nor state officials Nor were they in any influential capacity that allowed them to circumvent curfews blockades and threats that arranged one’s everyday life The ordinary mass of people both Sikhs and Hindus was usually at the receiving end of militant fire as well as the strategies of the men in uniform A community that has been intent on “moving on” and “getting over it” has not completely succeeded in doing so How do you ever “get over” or stop mourning the loss of a loved one who disappeared or was shot by the police or got separated and killed by militants on a bus journey It is this melancholia that needs to be addressed Unheard voices need to be brought into the public domain The point here is not just to add voices as historians have lately been doing but to create a ground for trust where citizens can expect justice from the state As for those worried about the nostalgic revival of Khalistan one only needs to revert to the television footage of two warring factions attacking each other with blunt-edged swords If there ever was an argument against Khalistan it was vividly depicted here for everyone to see
