installation of galvalume sheets during IAS officer Ashok Khemka’s tenure as Managing Director Haryana State Warehousing Corporation (HSWC) The state government neither sought Khemka’s point of view nor gave him an opportunity to explain the reasons or circumstances under which he took the decision However Haryana Lokayukta Justice Pritam Pal (retd) on Monday said: “No probe shall be ordered unless the affected party (Ashok Khemka) is given a proper hearing It is against the principles of natural justice that you order a probe without hearing the affected person Though we have received comments from the state government but we have yet not made up our mind whether it is a case in which a probe needs to be ordered We shall be hearing the affected party before taking any further decision in this matter” The Lokayukta in August last year had asked state government to give its comments on the allegations that whether any irregularities were committed in placing the tender to a private company for installation of galvalume sheets in 2009 After about an year Additional Chief Secretary Agriculture Dhanpat Singh has now submitted his comments to the Lokayukta and left it on the latter to either order a probe at his level or through any independent agency A Panchkula resident Ravinder Kumar had filed a petition in the Lokayukta last year alleging that Khemka placed the order of purchase of galvalume sheets to a company three days after receiving his transfer orders The petitioner had also alleged that Khemka took that decision to extend undue benefits to the company In his comments sent to the Lokayukta ACS (Agriculture) Dhanpat Singh also raised questions on the manner in which order of galvalume sheets’ installation was given to M/s Proflex System amounting to Rs 590 crore on April 23 2010 while Khemka had already received his transfer orders on April 21 2010 “There was no wrong doing as is being alleged There are allegations on me that I re-numbered the page numbers of the official file in records I would like to question how did anybody come to this conclusion that it was my handwriting in the numbering If anybody was accusing me of anything wrong atleast I should have been given a due opportunity to explain my side” Khemka told The Indian Express The case pertaining to installation of galvalume sheets during Khemka’s tenure came to light

littoral The IAF has been tied down for too long as a mere adjunct to the Indian Army’s mission of territorial defence Delhi has tended to ignore IAF’s role in securing India’s wider strategic

Besides improving IAF’s ability to operate together with the RAFOthe exercises should generate a framework for the deployment of Indian air power in a variety of ways for collective security in the northern Arabian Sea According to Vice-Chief Air Marshal PK Barborathe IAF could be called upon “to support anti-piracy operations off the Somali coast to deal with the expanding footprint of the pirates” In such a situationBarbora said”the Navy may not be able to cover the entire area due to constraints of speed and vessels This is when the IAF may be asked to offer help” The irony of the Indian Air Force contemplating Indian Ocean security at a time when there is mounting pressure on it to act against the Naxalite threat within the country will not go unnoticed That is in the very nature of the rise of India as a power on the regional stage even as it consolidates its territorial unity Given its size and strategic potential there will be increasing demands on the IAF to help out friends and allies as well as take part of multilateral security tasks in the Indian Ocean At the same time its traditional role in defending India’s borders is expanding to cover internal security Most modern military forces today are preparing for multi-tasking The IAF too is adapting to deal with a range of new tasks–from internal security to nuclear deterrenceterritorial defence to

The RSS leaders who met the minister reportedly confined their concerns to history books that they claim portray a ‘Western’ view of history. They demanded that these books be replaced by those written by historians with an Indian view of history They have a point but they make it badly It is true that in the decades in which India was ruled imperiously by the Congress the task of writing history textbooks was allotted to Leftist historians who chose to view India’s past through a distorted lens The most celebrated of these historians Romila Thapar has gone so far as to deny that Muslim invaders destroyed the temples of us idolatrous infidels Undoubtedly if she were writing about more recent history she would deny that the Taliban blew up the Buddhas of Bamiyan — and would say that they fell to pieces of their own accord In the interests of ‘secularism’ most Indian schools and colleges provide only limited courses for the study of ancient India Vedic Hinduism and Sanskrit literature So the vast majority of Indian children grow up with a sense of being Indian that is restricted to a religious identity When this gets infused with a toxic sort of nationalism as happens in RSS educational institutions the result is bigotry of a lethal kind If this ‘cultural’ organisation could find itself better leaders it would realise that the way for Indian children to grow up being proud of their heritage is to provide them a real way of seeing what this heritage is This can only happen when we build institutes of classical studies museums art galleries libraries and halfway decent schools Not just in our metropolises but in small towns and even villages The solution lies not just in altering history books but certainly there should be new historians and scholars given the task of examining Indian history with new eyes This is a monumental task and can only been done by trained scholars not by prejudiced pamphleteers from the RSS stables These gentlemen (no ladies) have not even been able to understand the importance of Indian religious thought in today’s troubled times We live in an age when prophets and the certainties of received wisdom are being questioned An age in which journalists are beheaded and women stoned in the name of religion If Hinduism and Buddhism seem increasingly attractive it is because the fundamental principle of the Indic religions is the right to question all fundamentals Even here the RSS misses the point So its religious ideologues believe that our ‘sanatana dharma’ needs to become Islamised The RSS is a font of bad ideas so in their talks with ministers last week there were reportedly noises made about ‘swadeshi’ economics at a time when the Prime Minister asks foreign investors to come ‘make in India’ With such obsolete ideas about life love economics and religion it is no surprise that in recent years the RSS morning ‘shakhas’ have been running almost empty Now that India is led by a powerful BJP prime minister who has never denied his links with the RSS we are suddenly seeing more khaki knickers in the public square than we have for a long while Can we hope that among this plethora of Hindu nationalists there will be one or two who may understand how vital a real cultural revolution has become at this point in Indian history One or two who will see that this has to embrace Indians of all castes and creed Follow Tavleen Singh on Twitter @ tavleen_singh For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten

recommendation to extend maternity leave benefits from 12 to 26 weeks in the private sector will catapult India into a small group of countries that mandate long paid leave for new mothers This is laudable Yet when asked about paternity leave and benefits for new fathers Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya said “The bill is about mothers and children It is not about the men” The minister was responding to specifics of the bill but what he said reflects a cultural mindset ingrained in societies around the world: Childcare is a women’s issue Could we hope to make it gender neutral The recent news that actor Tusshar Kapoor became a father via surrogacy is a telling example of a man fulfilling the urge and the need to parent It was a bold move considering that he comes from an industry that more often than not reinforces gender stereotypes What if Kapoor was employed in a traditional office As a new and single parent he would likely find it difficult to take time off to nurture and bond with his child The social stigma attached is huge even in organisations that offer some form of paternal leave benefits Developed economies like the US also lag when it comes to men sharing the burden of childcare and housework It is not that men don’t step up to help In the instances where they ask for time off to tend to family issues studies point to long term income hits and lost promotion opportunities Such men are viewed as lacking in ambition and drive Watch Video:Govt Moves To Ban Commercial Surrogacy: What It Means The Indian context can’t be compared to that of the West Here extended families offer a support structure But such access doesn’t mean that men carry on as ever before One transformative step could involve helping around the house more Various studies including those by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) demonstrate that Indian men spend less than an hour-a-day on housework compared to at least four to six hours spent by women Ariel detergent’s advertisement — showing a father observe his daughter manage both work and home while the son-in-law watches TV — went viral because it brought home this reality It is no secret that women feel the pressure to manage home even as they are expected to perform professionally Traditional values in India run deep McKinsey Global Institute’s “The Power of Parity” report showed that a majority of men and women agreed with the statement: “If a mother works for pay her children suffer” A survey by the Confederation of Indian Industry’s Indian woman network (Maharashtra chapter) found that 37 per cent of women opt out of their job due to maternity/childcare issues Their re-entry into the workforce was hindered by their maternal obligations Is it therefore surprising that those mothers who can afford to not work outside home often elect not to We have one of the lowest rates of female participation in the workforce ranking 11th from the bottom of 131 countries according to the International Labour Organisation At the very least this statistic could be improved if we stem the leaking pipeline of educated urban women dropping out due to care obligations After all there is enough evidence to support the positive economic benefits of having more women work Last year IMF chief Christine Lagarde noted that having an equal number of women as men in the workforce could boost India’s GDP by 27 per cent McKinsey also observed a significant bump to the GDP if more Indian women had paying jobs Today’s Facebook friendly generation could be the harbinger of change When Mark Zuckerberg announced (and took) two months off after his daughter was born he made a statement: It’s perfectly acceptable and even cool to take paternity leave “Studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns outcomes are better for the children and families” he wrote on Facebook Zuckerberg is in a privileged position Looking at his Facebook posts it appears he worked during the two months Yet his action bestowed credibility on the idea that fathers should be involved from the get go The beauty of India is our ability to adapt A disproportionately young working age population can embrace change faster than an older one The private sector can lead the way Many companies are recognised for their progressive “women friendly” HR policies Can these
