researcher from PunjabH S Virkwhich put in perspective the rapid decline of cutting edge scientific research in our country Using the Science Citation Index of the Institute for Scientific InformationVirk cited a survey which placed India in 8th place in the top 20 countries undertaking scientific research in the 1980s In the 1990swe were down to the 12th positionand today India is no longer in the list of the top 20 India ranks 21st in terms of output of research papers in sciencebut 119th in terms of research papers of any worthwhile contribution The number of R&D scientists and engineers per million of the population is 157 in India This is one fifth the ratio in South Koreaand one thirtieth the ratio of countries like the USA and Japan We have 17 per cent of the global population but account for a mere 15 per cent of the global output in R&D There is no shortage of brilliant scientific minds in Indiadedication and application Our inability to harness our huge pool of scientific talent to rise above mediocrity is due largely to our failure to build up institutions which can nurture and inspire genius Apart from the IITsno Indian educational institution merits a place in the list of internationally recognised universities and research centres One reason for this isof coursefunds We spend a mere 35 per cent of our GDP on education compared to double this percentage in most countries Which explains why our HRD Minister Kapil Sibal is in no position to fulfil the just demands of IIT professors that their emoluments should be commensurate to their services and their standing in the international market Butprobably more than lack of fundsthe responsibility for the sorry state of our research institutions is the work culture we foster Political interferencenepotismpetty jealousiescorruption and bureaucratization have all taken a toll on our institutions of higher education Merit is seldom the criteria for advancementparticularly as most of our research centres are controlled by governmentwhere red tapism is rewarded and individual initiative frowned upon Take for instancethe case of the Nobel Prize winner’s fatherC V Ramakrishnan He too was a brilliant academic whotogether with his wifefounded the Department of Biochemistry at MSU in Vadodara NeverthelessRamakrishnan was hounded out of the institution because some well connected PhD students backed by politicians complained against him Ramakrishnan’s fault was that he went strictly by merit in awarding scholarshipsand tried to give research grants to as many students as possibleeven if it meant cutting down the amount for each one Our research institutions are replete with similar examples Over the yearsbureaucratic and political interference has driven out a sizable section of the country’s top medical talent from the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences Even todayDr Bisariaa cardiologist of international repute at AIIMSis fighting a legal battle because a frivolous notice was issued to him on the grounds that he had allowed a Class III employee to be present during an operation Bisaria’s real ‘fault’ actually lay in the fact that the former Health Minister wanted him removed because he was seen as part of the camp of Dr Venugopal which was fighting for AIIMS to retain its autonomy Why is it that the Defence Research Development

It is on India’s western border (and until 1971 was also on the eastern border) It cannot be wished away; nor can India pretend it will go away On the very day the two countries became independent they inherited a clutch of problems that was the inevitable result of Partition I know of no example in history where two countries born out of a division of land lived in peace ever after Learn and forget History also teaches us that such countries must learn to live with each other and the only way to peaceful co-existence is to talk to each other If that means talking to each other every day or every week or every month so be it That lesson was learnt and forgotten and relearnt many times since 1947 Every government in India — and needless to say every government in Pakistan — was guilty on that count The period after the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008 was a particularly difficult period It was akin to the post-war situation in 1965 1971 and 1999 In a sense it was worse because it brought the conflict from the borders to the heart of India The mood in India was bitter and implacably opposed to Pakistan: no to talks no to exchanges no to cricket no to everything The Government could not ignore the anger among the people; yet there was no way forward but to negotiate the hurdles and find a way to engage with Pakistan The UPA governments (first and second) tried to do that and got mixed results Fast forward to 2013 Enter Mr Narendra Modi He had adroitly positioned himself as the alternative to Mr L K Advani who was increasingly seen as not a winner He had also successfully positioned himself as the alternative to the Congress party Within the BJP it was Mr Modi versus Mr Advani In the country as a whole it was Mr Modi versus Congress Such positioning required a new rhetoric laced with hyperbole that presumably reflected the mood of the people It is here that Mr Modi scored over every other political leader in the country Modi on talks with Pakistan In the context of Pakistan let me recall some of the statements that he made in 2012 and in the run-up to the elections in May 2014 On December 12 2012 Mr Modi said “Delhi is working behind the scenes keeping people in the dark and making a deal with Pakistan” At Tiruchirappalli Tamil Nadu on September 26 2013 Mr Modi said “Pakistan army can behead Indian soldiers Still the Delhi government eats chicken biryani with the Pakistan Prime Minister in the name of protocol” When the election results were a few days away on May 8 2014 a supremely confident Mr Modi answering a specific question on the Composite Dialogue process said “Is it possible to have a discussion amidst bomb blasts and gun shots So to have a reasonable discussion first the blasts and the gun shots have to stop” The statements evoked both praise and concern They appealed to certain sections that the BJP was trying hard to woo They also raised serious concerns among diplomats and security experts Was Mr Modi setting the bar at an impossibly high level that no talks with Pakistan would be possible during his entire term However Mr Modi surprised everyone by inviting all SAARC leaders including the Prime Minister of Pakistan to his swearing-in It was a political masterstroke and led the world to believe that the rhetoric of the elections would be left behind Is there a strategy In retrospect every assessment was wrong Neither the rhetoric nor the masterstroke was the result of a carefully thought out strategy Much of it was impulsive The months that followed proved that the new government simply lacked a strategy to deal with Pakistan Recall the starts and stops and the twists and turns of the last 18 months Invitations and cancellations and handshakes and cold stares left the world bewildered as they did most discerning observers in India The sum and substance of the last 18 months was that the Government of India had no policy on Pakistan It was also clear that policy-making had been taken away from the Ministry of External Affairs and vested completely in the Prime Minister’s office The Minister had been reduced to Minister for rescuing stranded people Seasoned diplomats had been assigned crucial jobs in Event Management In the last few days the Government has sprung another surprise Despite a 25 per cent increase in infiltrations this year over last year reported by the BSF India and Pakistan have decided to talk to each other Secret talks are no longer taboo Back channels are no longer suspect Ms Sushma Swaraj has taken the position of centre-forward Almost miraculously the once-shunned Composite Dialogue has metamorphosed into Comprehensive Bilateral Dialogue Everything is on the table — from Jammu & Kashmir to counter-terrorism from Siachen to Sir

among goals In the last few matches I have felt the boys have been under pressure after conceding" he said "Our players have missed from handshaking distance which is poor We have been trying hard at practice and players have shot in front of empty net also to get back confidence" Sen said on Monday at the match-eve news conference East Bengal had defeated Chennai 1-2 at the latter’s home venue in the last round and the Sen-coached side would see this as their last chance to return to winning ways Chennai have a solitary win and lost four times to be on the eighth place in the table Chennai
