spending improved significantly following partial privatisation Gupta found that the decrease in government ownership increased salesprofitsand the average product of labour and returns to labour In additioninvestment spending on research and development and expenditures on fixed assets rose significantly following an increase in the private share of a firms equity This evidence gives us hope that going beyond resource raising for the governmentthe Indian economy will gain through better utilisation of the labour and capital in the PSUswhen compared with the pre-listing state The listing of unlisted PSUs seems to create market pressure on the management The companys stock price becomes an instrument through which the market gives daily feedback on the performance of the company If a disinvestment transaction is structured so that employees get some sharesthen it creates a new incentive structure Compensation structures in the public sector are notorious for giving employees no incentive to cater to the interests of the firm Howeverif even some employees have shares in the firm post-listingthen their wealth maximisation makes them interested in the affairs of the firm While this evidence for the early listings of the 1991-2000 period is optimisticthere is a role of cautiongiven the weaker state of the remaining PSUs Many PSUs are all but dead as businesses; all that is there by way of value is assets such as real estate Listing might not improve their performance; what is really required is true privatisation The sale of assets of PSUs is going to be as controversial as the privatisation undertaken by Arun Shourie under the NDA government It could come under similar attack as the possibility of corruption can be extremely large Until governance structures and transparency in the functioning of the government in India are far better than those which exist todaythe best option may be to leave some of these difficult decisions alone Finallythe

Anti-Doping Agency despite the tensions that broke out between the two sides over the Russian doping scandal The support for Reedie to continue in his role came after he assured the International Olympic Committee that he would “respect the rules and responsibilities of WADA and its stakeholders” suggesting the agency will refrain in the future from publicly calling for a nation to be barred from the Olympics as it did with Russia before the games in Rio de Janeiro Reedie a Briton who has been WADA president since 2013 is up for re-election at agency meetings in Glasgow Scotland next weekend No other candidates have been put forward The backing for Reedie was contained in a letter from the IOC to all of its 98 members A copy of the letter was obtained Sunday by The Associated Press The letter was sent following a private meeting of the IOC executive board on Thursday in Lausanne Switzerland Reedie briefed the board at that meeting “Sir Craig Reedie committed to respect the Olympic Charter and respect the rules and responsibilities of WADA and its stakeholders including the catalogue of points put forward by the Olympic Movement three years ago” the letter said “On this basis the IOC will encourage the Olympic Movement representatives on the WADA foundation board to approve the re-election of Sir Craig Reedie as WADA President as well as inviting them to speak to their government counterparts concerning a reform of the system for electing the WADA President” Under current rules a WADA president is elected for three years with the option of a second three-year term The presidency rotates between representatives of governments and sporting bodies WADA and the IOC came into sharp conflict before and during the Rio Games following a report by WADA investigator Richard McLaren that detailed state-sponsored doping in Russia including manipulation of samples at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games and cover-ups of positive tests across dozens of summer and winter Olympic sports WADA recommended that the entire Russian team be excluded from Rio The IOC rejected the proposal and instead let international sports federations decide which athletes should be eligible to compete During meetings in Rio IOC members accused WADA of failing to act sooner on Russian doping and criticized the agency for releasing the McLaren report so close to the games The sides appeared to bury the hatchet last month at an Olympic summit in Lausanne where IOC leaders backed WADA to continue to oversee worldwide anti-doping efforts and gave the agency increased powers to lead the fight All parties agreed that an independent body under WADA’s umbrella should be set up to carry out global drug-testing Critics have accused Reedie of having a conflict of interest in his IOC and WADA roles In addition to WADA president he was an IOC vice president and member of the rule-making executive board until the Rio Games However Reedie’s term as vice president and board member has expired and he is now a regular IOC member without a policy-making role The IOC letter also said the board agreed to a request from Reedie to match government contributions and provide $500000 to the agency’s special investigations fund It said this was on condition that WADA provides a “detailed breakdown of costs” of McLaren’s upcoming final report and that McLaren “actively cooperates” with two separate IOC investigations into Russian doping McLaren’s latest report which is expected to focus on doping at the Sochi Games has been delayed until next month which the IOC said “makes cooperation more difficult” with its own probes Reedie and IOC leaders are scheduled to travel to Doha this week for the general assembly of the Association of National Olympic Committees

when her name was finally called out it was 5 the next morning After her Bharatnatyam performance she had to sprint down the steps of the stage rush to the green room and change into another costume — this time for her Kerala Nadanam dance which was to begin at 9 am She finally got her chance at 2 pm but had to perform without background music as the CD got stuck When the curtains came down Sneha

bagged ‘A’ grades in both her events *** The 57th edition of the Kerala School Youth Festival or Kalolsavam a week-long annual competition organised by the state government was held between January 16 and 22 in the north Kerala district of Kannur It’s the biggest such event in the state’s cultural calendar with 12000 contestants competing across 300-odd events this year At stake is an A grade that fetches the winning student a grace mark of 30 in the annual examinations a key factor that feeds the frenzy at the festival Those with a ‘B’ grade get 24 marks and a ‘C’ fetches 18 marks The competition is intense and with parents investing their energies and resources to ensure their children get nothing short of an ‘A’ many of these contests go down to the wire with some ending in tears and meltdowns Though the festival is scheduled to start at 9 am every day and end by evening plans often go haywire and events spill over to the early hours of the following day As they wait for their turn on stage — in heavy costume and makeup — children often go without sleep and food While the organisers and contestants believe the festival pushes the boundaries of what a child can do critics say it probably tests the limits of childhood itself Participants of a drama contest head to the venue with props Human rights activist Joy Kaitharam says children are under tremendous pressure to perform at the festival and that makes it “a grave violation of rights” “Events at youth festivals get delayed by hours It has happened in the past too This year the organisers should have taken corrective steps But clearly they haven’t” he says Kerala Education Minister C Raveendranath whose ministry is the nodal agency for the festival says Kalolsavam should be “seen as a celebration rather than a competition” “There is no violation of children’s rights Due to the presence of more contestants schedules may have got disrupted Otherwise we have taken every step to ensure the smooth functioning of the festival’’ The first Kalolsavam was held in 1957 with 18 events and 400 students but since then the festival has grown in scale and hype It’s now a media carnival with newspapers devoting full pages and TV channels broadcasting the event live Successful contestants are whisked away by waiting television crew to makeshift studios where the children breathless and awkward talk about what it feels to win This year the festival is being held across 21 venues in Kannur all named after the rivers of Kerala At the biggest of them Nila — a giant pandal erected at Kannur’s Police Grounds where the dance events are being held — there is a crowd running into thousands around 11 am on Wednesday the third day of the festival In front of the huge stage are red plastic chairs all packed with parents teachers representatives from schools organisers and sundry others At the side of one such stage is Keerthana Pradeep a Plus Two student in Kozhikode Her face is red flush from two back-to-back A grades: for Ottan Thullal and Kerala Nadanam one an 18th-century dance form and the other an evolving dance style In a couple of days she says she has another “individual item” coming up Nangyar Koothu apart from a “group dance” as part of the school team Keerthana looks distracted as she speaks about her “preparations” for the festival She says that for the last four years her summer vacations have been spent in school “preparing for events” While the youth festival is held in the second week of January preparations begin months in advance with training sessions held in schools and other centres during the April-May summer vacations On the third day of the festival the ‘Nila’ venue at Kannur’s Police Grounds is packed In the new academic year schools conduct a competition at their level usually in September after which the winners begin their training sessions during weekends “My trainers — for Ottan Thullal Kerala Nadanam and Nagyar Koothu — are based in Kozhikode Pattambi and Shornur districts So every Saturday morning my father and I would board the train to either Pattambi or Shornur depending on which class I had that day” says Keerthana Her father Pradeep Kumar says Keerthana has been participating in the youth festival since 2013 and that he has always accompanied her “I am always with her” he says so much so that when he talks about Keerthana’s preparations for the festival he uses the plural first person “njangal (we)” “Every year we start preparing for the festival during the summer vacation The first step is to identify a new theme for the individual dance items We approach professional writers with the theme They write the lyrics and we get them composed and recorded at a studio By the time the school opens for the new academic session in June the song is ready” says Kumar a marble and tile businessman Kumar says he spent Rs 230 lakh on this year’s event — on the trainers for Keerthana’s three events and the costumes — not to count the travel and boarding expenses “We can’t take chances so we go in for a new theme every year That pushes up the cost because we have to pay for the composition and the recording Then there are other expenses We buy the silk for the costume directly from weavers and the ornaments are bought from manufactures in Nagarcoil in Tamil Nadu This year I spent Rs 15000 on just one set of costume Also the cost of makeup for one session is Rs 3000’’ says Kumar With so much at stake parents tend to be pushy says D Pramod a dance teacher who has been training Kalolsavam participants for about a decade “This year I had to turn down a few children because their parents insisted that I only coach them not other students Though 30 is the maximum marks a contestant can get even if she has multiple A grades parents force their children to participate in more than one event Worse they expect them to win all events” One of the performers of Parichamuttu a martial dance form being attended to at the makeshift clinic Kalamandalam Sathyavrithan 51 a dance trainer who charges between Rs 20000 and Rs 30000 per student says eight of his students from four different districts are participating in Kerala Nadanam this year “I have written the script and composed them for my students’’ says Sathyavrithan who runs a dance institute in Kozhikode “While students opting for individual items hire their trainers schools fund and coach students for group events’’ says Sasi Lal a teacher at Silver Hills School Kozhikode where Keerthana is a student Today Lal is leading his school contingent at the Nila venue The competition is so intense that schools poach talent from other schools Keerthana who was with Providence Girls High School Kozhikode until a few years ago says “When I won an award at the festival in 2013 Silver Hills offered me a seat and even gave me an annual scholarship of Rs 12000” The school-level event is followed by sub-district level competitions the A graders of which make it to the revenue-district-level contest The winners here eventually make it to the biggest stage of them all the state-level festival It’s usually after this penultimate round that competitors get embroiled in legal disputes Aggrieved students first approach the deputy director of education and if their appeals are turned down rush to various courts including the High Court and the Kerala State Commission for Protection of Children’s Rights While 850 candidates appeared for last year’s youth festival with appeals that had been upheld after the revenue-district-level contest this year the number had touched 1027 by the first five days of the festival Of these 10 appeals were granted by the High Court and 191 by the Commission for Protection of Children’s Rights Programme committee convener K C Rajan says the number of appeals have gone up this year because “the courts were too liberal” “It seems the students were not satisfied with their district-level results and rushed to courts’’ says Rajan Anagha S a student from a Thiruvananthapuram school shot off a letter to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan saying that she had won an ‘A’ grade for Kerala Nadanam at the sub-district level but was “denied” a grade at the district festival and that a “festival mafia” had disallowed her appeal to the Education Department Clearing Anagha’s participation in the festival the Chief Minister instructed Vigilance Director Jacob Thomas to “strictly monitor” the festival and the judgments that are handed out “to ensure transparency” in the results Revamma P Das who has judged festivals in the past agrees that judgments call for more transparency However he says that can be ensured “not by keeping an eye on jury members during the festival” but by making sure that the selection is transparent “The Vigilance should look into the judges’ antecedents and see whether the relatives or disciples of jury members are contesting in a particular event” says Das an orchestra singer Judges however say the high number of appeals is what disrupts schedules Speaking on condition of anonymity a well-know dancer who is a judge at this year’s festival says “The problem is there is no clear yardstick while fixing grades at district levels If you get 60 marks you get grade A in a district The same score is treated as B grade in another district Besides because the competition is so tight candidates even go in appeal with complaints about the sound system The grading at the district level should be fool-proof and above suspicion That way the state festival won’t have to deal with such big numbers’’ Besides he says judges are already under tremendous pressure as they are under strict instructions to not interact with anyone or use mobile phones while the events are on Pramod the dance trainer says that the sheer numbers make it unwieldy for judges “How can a judge be expected to sit through 50-odd performances and evaluate them objectively At the end of the contest will he even recall the first performance” asks Pramod whose 12 students are participating in the festival On Tuesday Nandana Devadas a Bharatnatyam contestant had rushed from her home district of Thrissur to the festival venue 200 km away with an appeal granted by the Lokayukta “I came third at the district-level competition and decided to appeal As the Education Department turned down my appeal I approached the Lokayukta which cleared my appeal on Tuesday afternoon My father and I immediately left for Kannur where the contest for my event had already begun Luckily there were other contestants with appeals so the schedule got stretched and I got my turn on Wednesday morning’’ says Nandana a Class 12 student Her results came out a few hours later with an ‘A’ grade for her A member of the Parichamuttu team was injured during the performance As Nandana performed in the audience was a familiar face: Kannur-based film director M Mohanan He says he is scouting for talent for his upcoming project “My next movie is about a girl who is aspiring to become a dancer I am hoping to find a suitable face here Of late we haven’t been seeing too many from the youth festival making their way into films but I am still hopeful’’ says Mohanan He optimism stems from good reason The festival has been the launch pad for some of the biggest names in Malayalam cinema — from veteran singers such as K J Yesudas and P Jayachandran who were winners at the first edition of the festival held in 1957 to playback singers V Sujatha and K S Chitra and actors Vineeth Manju Warrier Vinduja Menon Navya Nair and Kavya Madhavan Warrier had bagged the title of ‘kalathilakam (for the highest scoring girl participant)’ for two consecutive years Film and TV actor Vinod Kovoor who is among those who made the transition from the youth festival to cinema some years ago says “I am glad I came into films Acting was my passion then and it still is But these days most of the contestants participate only to get grace marks Once they get that they get into professional courses get a job they disappear from the arena They are not in it for the love of the arts but to get jobs That’s a trend that needs to be discouraged Once you do that this mad rush you see here and the pressure will go down too” Minister Raveendranath says there is no move to abandon the practice of granting grace mark to the winners “However the festival manual will be reviewed next year and brainstorming sessions have already begun among the stakeholders Based on this year’s experience we will introduce necessary changes in the conduct of the festival next year’’ he says Contestants have to wait for hours — often in their costumes and wearing make-up — before they are called on stage *** At the Nila venue Usha Krishnadas from Palakkad is among those who believe “something needs to change” Her daughter Malavika a Class 12 student has fared poorly and Usha is now close to tears “Malavika stood first in both Bharatnatyam and Kuchipudi at the last two festivals This year we came here expecting a hat-trick But Malavika came 17th in Bharatnatyam and 21st in Kuchipudi See I don’t want to make it an issue but the jury is biased and something should be done about this” she says her voice quivering “It was the dream of my late husband that Malavika should be a dancer Besides the school teachers also wanted Malavika to contest in more items as they believe she can deliver a good show How could Malavika lose” he built a database of some 900 dinosaur names
