its crippling impact on the economy (tourism, the main revenue earner and employment creator for Egypt has shrunk to less than one-fourth of its peak levels) and the lurking fear of a Syria-like violent social conflict if the Muslim Brotherhood were to return to power have led most Egyptians to believe that their country will be safe only if a strong leader comes to the helm Their hopes are pinned on el-Sisi the current army chief and defence minister Thanks to the tough action he took on Morsi and his followers he has suddenly become a cult figure a saviour of Egypt indeed the person most Egyptians want as their next president Posters eulogising him are visible everywhere in Cairo There are el-Sisi T-shirts on sale in streets “Is this orchestrated by the military” I asked my friends in Cairo They are by no means supporters of the military takeover They crave democracy the original promise of the Tahrir movement In private conversations they strongly oppose restrictions on the media and the torture of imprisoned Brotherhood workers Yet all of them are unanimous in saying “No this show of support for el-Sisi is not orchestrated It is authentic” Unlike his predecessors Morsi was a democratically elected president However the undeniably broad public support for the army takeover is a measure of how quickly he and the Brotherhood incurred the wrath of a majority of the Egyptian population because of their own undemocratic untrustworthy and socially polarising rule Why did Muslim-majority Egypt rise in revolt against the Muslim Brotherhood I put this question to Professor Mahmood Azab who serves as an advisor to the Grand Imam of Al-Azar a 1000-year-old globally respected centre of Islamic learning He said “Muslims in Egypt believe in moderate Islam They believe in pluralism and peaceful co-existence with their Christian brethren They are also proud of their pre-Islamic civilisational heritage All this is unacceptable to the Muslim Brotherhood who want to impose their extremist ideology of Islam on Egypt A peculiar circumstance in the aftermath of the 2011 revolution helped them come to power But the Egyptian people soon realised that the Brotherhood was exploiting Islam for its own narrow political and social agenda It even branded all those Muslims opposed to it as ‘infidels’ It became so unpopular that over 30 million people came onto the streets all over the country demanding its ouster from power” Here is a lesson the BJP could learn in India If a party plays polarising politics in the name of the majority community it could be spurned by a majority of the people belonging to that very community Here is also a heartening lesson for women in Muslim societies around the world Egyptian women played a pivotal role in bringing down the Muslim Brotherhood government Suzy el-Geneidy assistant chief editor of Al-Ahramnewspaper told me: “This is because Egyptian women whose struggles have won them an important place in public life felt threatened by the Brotherhood’s extremist agenda to disempower them in the name of Islam Women in our country are highly religious But they don’t like the Brotherhood’s coercive ways” Interestingly women have become el-Sisi’s ardent supporters I heard an explanation for this curious phenomenon from Osama Diab a researcher-activist with the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights which is critical of the human rights violations under the current army-led ruling establishment “There is no doubt” he said “that el-Sisi has rare charisma People especially women admire him because he is seen as a strong leader But they also admire him because they see him as a soft-spoken emotional and down-to-earth leader Moreover he is deeply religious He presents himself as a person who is firm and self-confident in dealing with the Muslim Brotherhood but tender in dealing with the people” What has also endeared el-Sisi to a majority of Egyptians is his image as a unifier of a society in which the Brotherhood had sought to sow Muslim-Christian and Muslim-Muslim divisions When he went on television on July 3 2013 to announce that Morsi had been removed from power he had Ahmed al-Tayeb the Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar and Pope Tawadros the spiritual head of Coptic Christians (who constitute about 10 per cent of Egypt’s population) flanking him This commitment to safeguarding national unity religious plurality and security of all citizens was conspicuously missing during Morsi’s rule Indeed many Egyptians I spoke to said that one of the reasons they disliked the Brotherhood was the suspicion that the latter was “more loyal to the Ummah (global Muslim ‘nation’) than to Egypt” If el-Sisi offers himself as a candidate in the forthcoming presidential election scheduled to take place in April he is certain to win by a huge majority However it’s equally certain that he will have a difficult task leading an impatient nation facing severe economic problems He also cannot afford to suppress people’s especially the Egyptian youth’s aspirations for freedom dignity and democratic rights If he succeeds it’ll be a miracle If he fails Tahrir Square could come

ministry has laid the foundation for a defence-industrial base In ending the public sector’s monopoly over aircraft production the first meeting of the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) under the new Union government turned out to be highly significant On Saturday the DAC chaired by Defence Minister Arun Jaitley cleared procurement proposals worth Rs 21000 crore in one stroke which included critical necessities such as the replacement of the air force’s five-decade-old Avro transport aircraft fleet auxiliary support ships and offshore patrol vessels for the navy advanced light helicopters for the navy and the coast guard as well as fast and offshore patrol vessels for the coast guard While these decisions signal the government’s intention to accelerate the process of defence procurement the two biggest takeaways are the programmes for military transport aircraft and naval fleet support vessels These invite Indian private-sector firms to defence production and in the longer term should help develop a domestic military-industrial complex The Avro replacement project will see 16 aircraft procured from a foreign vendor who in turn will choose an Indian partner for the manufacture of the remaining 40 of the 56 planes needed Since this is a non-lethal platform the foreign manufacturer and its Indian partner can sell the aircraft for commercial use too expanding their market to the civil aviation sector Although this programme had been approved by the erstwhile UPA government it was frozen by then Defence Minister AK Antony following his colleague Praful Patel’s objections to the exclusion of public-sector companies like HAL from the bidding process With legal opinion upholding that bidding process this move will now be an important step towards capacity-building of the Indian private sector in defence manufacture and in the aerospace industry The decision on auxiliary ships is tied up with the navy operating three carrier battle-groups outside the Indian Ocean Region signalling that the transformation of the Indian navy into a genuine blue-water force is on the MoD agenda again Auxiliary ships feed carrier battle-groups The invitation of the Indian private sector to this programme could see manufacturing move beyond Cochin at present the only Indian yard capable of building large vessels like the under-construction INS Vikrant carrier The UPA’s culture of instinctive banning and blacklisting of foreign suppliers at the hint of a scandal had led to a complete stalling of India’s military modernisation After raising the FDI cap in defence from 26 to 49 per cent in the budget the NDA government has a chance now to fulfil its promise of providing the armed forces with the most advanced

Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Neelkanth Mishra | Updated: August 22 2016 2:48 am It seems rising agricultural productivity is now creating surpluses across most categories Top News India’s per capita calorie demand has been falling for at least the last 30 years Most people do a double-take when they hear that One can’t debate the fact much: National Sample Surveys every five to seven years have documented this What we can debate are the reasons behind this: In their 2009 paper Angus Deaton and Jean Dreze pretty thoroughly narrowed them down to reduced need for calories as lives get more automated (like less walking with heavy loads or more tractors for ploughing) and less incidence of acute diseases (like dysentery a common form of calorie loss) as drinking water quality and immunisation improved Likely for similar reasons this drop in per capita calorie demand has been observed in China as well Further and more intuitively as incomes have risen the type of calories consumed has been changing as well: More eggs and chicken more milk less cereals As a result per capita cereal demand has been falling by 1 per cent per year on average for three decades at least Now that population growth has also slowed to about 1 per cent per year this means our total demand for cereals is not growing anymore Unlike in China where diets transitioning to red meat (to get one calorie one feeds the animal four) have kept pressure on calorie production Indians are shifting to chicken which is far less inefficient (and consumes corn which is not a staple here) Cereal production though continues to rise mainly due to rising yields This started showing up in rising food-stocks from 2008 onwards till we ran out of storage space Then exports started helped by high global prices In the last two years consecutive monsoon failures and falling global prices have brought down stocks as well as exports but if monsoons are good (helping groundwater levels and the rabi crop too) we could see an additional 25 million tonnes of cereals this year Weak global markets make exports unviable particularly for wheat What is the farmer going to do Cereals are not just any crop: They are the mainstay of Indian agriculture accounting for more than half the gross cropped area And while 60-90 per cent of this area is irrigated only 15-30 per cent of the area used for pulses and oilseeds is The latter crops thus get badly affected by weak monsoons Despite rapidly growing demand for protein and fats domestic output last year was about the same as in 2004 This meant 12 billion dollars of imports last year nearly three times the value imported when monsoons were okay As India seems to be the only large consumer of pulses there is not (yet) much of a global market in them — if the Indian crop fails prices go up For oils a well-supplied global market kept prices low: So low that the government had to raise import duties last year to prevent local prices from falling This year then a sharp jump in output of pulses and oilseeds as seems likely should bring down imports as well as dal prices Elsewhere remarkable changes are afoot on the perishable side of the food basket: Milk fruits and vegetables Of the 160 million tonnes of milk produced in India less than 40 per cent comes to the market: The rest is consumed within the household or the village This is mostly due to a lack of infrastructure: Roads (without good roads one cannot transport milk) information (not just on best practices but also on pricing) and electricity (without electricity in the village one would struggle to keep high-yielding varieties of cattle: one needs milking machines as well as chillers) We saw six consecutive years of double-digit increases in milk prices It took time for supply to respond: Cattle take three years to start lactating Improving rural infrastructure and better prices have resulted in much slower price growth despite the cooperatives supporting farmers by buying more than they needed With global milk prices down the export opportunity is also constrained Similarly in vegetables which are perishable the supply response to prices has been so strong that even in onions where the state that drives more than a third of output Maharashtra was reeling under two consecutive years of drought output grew so much that farmers had to sell at near-zero prices In potatoes when production hit 48 million tonnes last year more than 10 per cent of the harvest had to be stored as surplus Researchers say the use of technology in fruit and vegetables has driven yields up and duration of crop cycles down so farmers can produce more crops per year Improving infrastructure (phones roads) is also helping with transportation and price awareness Putting this together it seems that rising agricultural productivity is now creating surpluses across most categories The tell-tale signs were that despite two consecutive years of low production prices did not go up — this was mistakenly attributed to lower Minimum Support Prices and to a clampdown on black-marketing These may have helped but the root causes go much deeper This year as output growth picks up again prices could come under pressure — in many ways the poor monsoons had put a lid on this problem This throws up three important challenges for policymakers First agricultural surpluses from India are harder to export without a substantial improvement in food processing Second in most categories Indian farming cannot compete in global markets despite the abundance of natural resources (fertile soil adequate water and sunlight cheap labour) It is not just due to subsidies in other countries: Our productivity needs to improve as well The Indian farmer is also affected by currency movements Farmers in Brazil Ukraine and Russia have benefited strongly from the fall in their respective currencies And lastly these trends mean that agriculture will shed workers We no longer need 49 per cent of our workforce producing food for the rest of us In the US just 2 per cent of the population is in agriculture with substantial agricultural exports As one researcher we met

little bit older and I don’t know how many times these chances will come around again” The MLS standings show the impact McCarty can have on a team New York traded McCarty on Jan 16 two days after his
