from us on December 6 the Mahaparinirvan Din of Babasaheb Ambedkar While Ambedkar remains the original icon of the oppressed classes mainly Dalits in Hindu society Sharma will be remembered for his contribution to the emancipation of the tribals Beginning his career as a civil servant Sharma spent a lifetime in the cause of the marginalised sections At times acting like a Gandhian or reasoning like a communist and occasionally positioning himself in a manner that attracted the tag of Maoist Sharma transcended all isms He was an original thinker and activist par excellence Born in an orthodox Brahmin family on June 19 1931 at Shahjahanpur UP Sharma studied mathematics at the Benares Hindu University and worked at BITS Pilani as a lecturer Subsequently he sat for the civil services examination and entered the IAS in 1956 He understood the calculus of the government machinery and its unholy alliance with big industry When a scheme to replace the primordial Bastar forests with a pine plantation was proposed during his tenure as district collector (1964-68) he shot it down He thought the pine plantation meant to service a matchbox manufacturing MNC would deprive poor tribals of their natural food resources and jeopardise their very survival A lesson from an experiment in a Bastar village guided him throughout his life He had built an “ideal village” with facilities like school and hospital But no tribal would shift there He realised it was best to ask the tribals what they needed and make plans accordingly rather than thrust one’s own ideas upon them While on deputation at the Centre he helped devise the concept of the tribal sub-plan (TSP) which became a source of dedicated funding for schemes in tribal areas He took voluntary retirement from government in 1981 Later the government appointed him vice chancellor of the North-Eastern Hill University (NEHU) In 1986 he was invited to head the SC/ST Commission Sharma was part of an informal group Sahayog which included many social activists He was associated with the anti-Narmada dam movement and in 1992 set up the Bharat Jan Andolan (BJA) The BJA had three basic objectives — peasants’ rights wage entitlement and mainstreaming of the Schedule V of the Constitution to bring tribal areas into the panchayati raj fold He would recall how farmers were forced to repay loans at over 14 per cent when the original British laws of 1884 provided for 4 per cent interest with a repayment span of 35 years The BJA organised the famous wage entitlement battle Zenda Hajeri in Madhya Pradesh for jobs under the “demand-driven” EGS scheme The officials found it too demanding Then chief minister Digvijaya Singh wrote to then prime minister PV Narasimha Rao that the scheme had become a “law and order problem” Sharma’s greatest contribution was in bringing Schedule V areas under the Panchayat Raj (Extension to Scheduled Areas) Act of 1996 (PESA) The PESA gave an impetus to the tribal self-rule movement and led to the path-breaking Forest Rights Act Vested interests were hostile to Sharma’s dogged fight against the usurpation of tribal resources by the government and private entities While being part of a tribal agitation against setting up private iron-ore extraction units he was accosted by goons who stripped him naked put a garland of chappals round his neck and paraded him on a donkey in Mavlibhata village The gross exhibition of intolerance took place when the BJP was in office in MP The Sundarlal Patwa government showed no remorse The exception was RSS ideologue Govindacharya who apologised to Sharma A natural consequence of working in tribal areas was that Sharma had to engage with the Maoists The intelligence machinery eager to brand all those working for tribal rights as Maoists or their sympathisers marked out Sharma as well as a suspect However Sharma’s moral stature helped in securing the release of Sukma district collector Alex Paul Menon and two Italian tourists whom the Maoists had taken hostage Sharma lived the life of an ascetic He grieved that state governments were not framing rules to implement the PESA act in letter and spirit He was unhappy that he couldn’t contribute to furthering the cause of prohibition In his last days he lapsed into a state of dementia Sharma was as health activist Abhay Bang described “the Mahatma of the tribals” The writer a journalist was an associate of BD Sharma for over four decades For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express AppWritten by Shalini Langer | New Delhi | Published:

almost entirely resting on her shoulders Top News Moana movie voice cast: Auli’i Cravalho Dwayne Johnson Rachel House Temuera Morrison Moana movie director: Ron Clements Don Hall John Musker Chris Williams A shortish 16-year-old with pudgy-ish legs longish skirt and a roundish waist who saves the world Disney princesses have started coming in forms more than one But there have been none like Moana The story is inspired by a Polynesian legend about a demi-god called Maui However the tale is entirely universal especially for girls about the dangers of what might lie beyond one’s home Moana’s team of writers-directors weaves several strands from this skein about finding one’s true self about “darkness spreading” as people close doors to the outside world about the nature of true heroism and even about the possibility of friendship so many light years after Kabuliwala between a girl and a man Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) has always been drawn to the sea partly because of the tales of adventure around it recited by her grandma (a delightful Rachel House) but also because it just laps next to their island A magical scene also hints that the sea too may be drawn to her though Moana’s father the village chief Tui (Temuera Morrison) quickly rules out the possibility of her ever hitting the waters In a way now familiar for Disney watchers Moana does find her way to the sea helped along by grandma Her mission is to restore the heart of Te Fiti the goddess of creation which was a thousand years ago stolen by Maui thus bringing misery upon the world Moana must find Maui who himself is lost somewhere at sea since the fish hook that gave him magical powers was taken away by a monster and take him to Te Fiti so that he can return her heart More from the world of Entertainment: Maui voiced by Johnson is created in the image of The Rock a fact that has generated much derision among the Polynesians It is in fact a bit disconcerting at first when Maui is revealed to be a demi-god sold on his own myth of greatness With great flourish he signs Moana’s oar against her protestations using the beak of her pet chicken and calling it “tweeting” That’s the lamest joke in the film that otherwise lets situations do the talking However Maui grows on you from the self-growing tattoos on his body telling his life’s tale to the man bun he casually ties in the midst of a fight Also read:Saithan movie review: Two disjointed plots one bigfailure Most of the film involves Moana convincing Maui to venture on the task despite the fact that he no longer has his powers (and we know how that goes) and the two of them making their way to Te Fiti despite the hurdles including a crab that loves shiny things Where Moana consistently hits the mark is the expanse it allows its heroine — the length and breadth of an ocean — with the film and the future of the world almost entirely resting on her shoulders She silences one snarky remark from Maui by telling him she is “no princess” and blossoms when she learns how to sail It’s a bit of a cheat that the sea helps her in her mission but the film cleverly if not convincingly explains it too Also read:Kahaani 2 movie review: Vidya Balan’s performance is the saving grace of this predictablethriller The songs are the most disappointing part of Moana surprising given the wonderful opportunities on offer But then you
