But Suresh Tendulkar was a very careful economist He might not have made the same assumption of ideological error The Tendulkar committee moved from a calorie-based poverty line to a food expenditure-based line But he was also happy with the earlier urban poverty ratio of 257 per cent for 1973-74established by the 1977 task force (which I headed) and periodically adjusted for inflation In factTendulkar laid down that this estimate should set the national poverty line the expenditure required to meet its calorific goal should be the poverty line for both rural and urban areas The exercise was fascinatingboth for policy and in theory The 1977 task force cast its shadow on the more recent exercisepossibly because Tendulkar had been one of its members Bhalla needs to carefully peruse the Tendulkar Report before castigating Saxena But Bhallas well-researched piece on poverty in India and China makes some accurate observations An important point he makes is thatin Indiathere is a big difference between private consumption as estimated by the National Sample Survey (NSS) and as reflected in national accounts data The latter is derived from the production or commodity flow sideadjusted for stocksgovernment purchasesnet imports and the use of commodities by industry Moni Mukherjeefrom the Indian Statistical Institutesaid many decades ago that there are two estimates Unfortunatelythere is no way of saying which is better Neither of the two has enough information to work out errorsnever mind compare them Of coursethis does not stop some brave souls from championing one estimate or the otherdepending on whether they are advising the treasury benches or sitting in the opposition But Bhalla is above such chicanery He works out that the difference between the two estimates has increased in recent yearsa point he had also made almost a decade ago The problemas Bhalla points outarises when you make comparisons between countries He shows that from 1999 to 2011the NSS sets annual consumption growth in India at 28 per cent But from the commodity flow sidewe get an estimate of 48 per cent annually from the national accounts That is a large difference In ChinaBhalla observesit was the other way around the growth rate from the budget surveybased on which poverty is measuredwas higher than the rate derived from commodity flow The former was 67 per cent and the latter 73 per cent Bhalla argues that if this is correctedpoverty and inequality reduction in India would compares favourably with China I have an interesting personal experience on the use of surveys for policy figures in China In 1982I was deputy leader of the first Indian delegation to China after a long period of frosty relations The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) had been established only a few years earlier and scholars were being very careful But when I went back in the last decadeheading a Rajiv Gandhi Foundation delegationI was impressed by the frank discussion of problems and the expression of alternative views Jianjin Liu of the Institute of Rural Development Research of CASS was an acknowledged expert on Chinas non-farm economy andlike his Indian counterpartsa sceptic of the statistics of achievement offered up by ministries He worked patiently on the agricultural censusestablishing that Chinas non-farm employmentwhich had been lower than 20 per cent two decades earlierstood at 255 per cent in 2001 and at 275 per cent in 2002figures much lower than official achievement statistics would suggest Some years laterI was horrified to read in the papers that he had been imprisoned for 20 years on undisclosed charges of espionage Fortunatelymore recent reports suggest that criticism is less unacceptable now And as Bhalla assertsonly the foolhardy would uncritically accept official statistics The writer is chancellorCentral University of Gujarat [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Mrinal Pande | Published: April 3 2015 4:33 am The poet to paraphrase him was not just a creator of poetry but also a custodian of racial memory Related News In the taxonomy of Hindi writing poet Kailash Vajpeyi will remain an exotic creature He was born in Hamirpur in Uttar Pradesh in 1936 and breathed his last on the first day of April 2015 Kailash got his Masters degree from Lucknow University He was a literary groupie as a student attending literary meets and poetry readings regularly He joined the Times of India group in 1960 in Mumbai quit after a year and then taught at colleges affiliated to the Delhi University His early work follows the tradition of rhymed poetry and talks of death and darkness and the (often temporary) melancholia affecting an angry young man He often sang his verses at Kavi Sammelans then the ideal gathering to get noticed as a poet With an untrained but sonorous voice Kailash’s renderings drew repeated applause He was soon being filed under “young voices to watch out for” At this point Harivansh Rai Bachchan became an early mentor to the affable young poet even presiding over his marriage to a young Sikh girl that the poet’s own family refused to attend The next phase in Kailash’s life came when he left for Mexico where he was a visiting professor at the University of Mexico from 1973 to 1976 He returned when India was just recovering from the jolt of the Emergency and Hindi was finding a large readership as a literature of protest and new political thinking The time was ideal for poetry and journalism to grow and interact with each other Soon Kailash’s columns could be seen in various Hindi magazines and newspapers He had published Sankrant his first volume of poems in 1964 before going abroad and received favourable reviews Some two dozen more publications followed — anthologies of his own poems anthologies of major Hindi poets translated into English and edited by him a play collections of his philosophical ruminations and also articles on literary trends and medieval Bhakti poetry Kailash was much sought after as a multilingual critic and columnist In 2002 he was awarded the prestigious Vyas Samman by the KK Birla Foundation for Prithvi Ka Krishna Paksh (The Dark Fortnight of the Earth) and the Sahitya Akademi Award for Hava Mein Hastakshar (Signatures in the Wind) followed in 2009 For Kailash the poet to paraphrase him was not just a creator of poetry but also a custodian of racial memory Over the years after his return from Mexico and Dallas US one saw him becoming more and more inclined towards and writing about the mystic philosophy and poetry of rebel saints and poets — the Buddha Ramakrishna Paramhansa Kabir Swami Haridas Surdas Connecting the dots now became the great theme of Kailash’s writings Radio and later TV presented him with the opportunity to connect with the masses Hence his great love for the audiovisual media In the 1990s he made a few memorable short films for Doordarshan on their lives and work It is worth thinking of those cautious and confused Indian middle-class listeners and TV viewers with their potential for cultural greatness and shabbiness interlaced with love and spite for their own mother tongues It makes Kailash’s desire to carry to them the undying beauty and wisdom of saint-poets completely understandable But that does not mean Kailash withdrew entirely into the wonder that was India Between the modernists and the Indologists he always chose to walk the middling line It was a shrewd choice At times as when defending the liberal humanism of Kabir Tulsidas and the Sufi poets against fundamentalists of the right and left that middle line could be the most radical place to be At other times in the laissez faire cosiness of poems like “Fana” and “Nirvana” it becomes merely the most comfortable Kailash radiated a mischievous Puck-like quality underscoring the irony of his literary stance with his fascinatingly eccentric headgear and quiet asides about literary bores in Hindi He harboured no special fondness for his own generation nor did he look down on those who wrote in English If anything he made a faith of personal sincerity and a career of disingenuousness In a profession where an unhappy domestic life and waywardness are a badge of honour Kailash’s personal life retained a contentedly in-your-face middle classness At home he was surrounded by the love of his quiet and unassuming wife Roopa and his only child Ananya Such a life and an unapologetically traditional stance as a writer can be considered more honest than the chest-thumping mea culpas of many of his contemporaries And yes in matters of secular pacifism class and race Kailash shone as a non-judgemental progressive “There is nothing…” one of his poems says “to justify wailing over each passing bier…” Till the end Kailash Vajpeyi remained a romantic of the traditional school of Hindi writing who worshipped not individuals but the great literary tradition: “Doobna to tay hai/ Isliye naav nahin nadi per bharosa karna (since we are all doomed to drown eventually trust not the boat but the river)” The writer is former
