after the polls they are not made to feel at home Here’s a chance for the BJP to try something bold if it’s really serious about attracting Muslims Delhi will be a big test of whether it means

Assembly today with opposition PDP MLAs staging protests a sit-in and a walkout alleging the government had mishandled the issue As soon as the House assembled today PDP members and Independent MLA

impose curfew" Khan said PTI Written by Pratap Bhanu Mehta | Published: October 10 2014 1:06 am In India the application of surveillance seems to have more to do with discipline than with mitigating risk Related News Our society is gripped by two overlapping tendencies On the one hand there is a pervasive culture of mistrust On the other hand this mistrust is ideologically deployed for all kinds of surveillance from biometric attendance to GPS tracking of politicians The clamour for accountability is manifesting itself in the form of a desire for greater discipline but the line between reasonable discipline and a disciplinary society that colonises our self is a very thin one Are we sleepwalking into forms of discipline that will diminish rather than elevate us The question of surveillance is a tricky one But broadly a distinction must be made between forms of surveillance that are designed to protect us from genuine risks and forms that are mainly disciplinary in their effects This is not a sharp distinction but it is heuristically useful Modern societies like all societies face complex risks But the self-image of modern society is that these risks can be mitigated by the application of surveillance and technology No modern government can be seen not to be doing things to mitigate these risks even if the net effect is not always to make us safer After every crime government has to answer what it could have done to prevent it And often the easy answer is surveillance What risks we should mitigate when does the invocation of risk merely become a pretext for more surveillance — these questions require careful empirical argument But in India the application of surveillance seems to have more to do with discipline than with mitigating risk In a country with great contempt for government officials (but great clamour for government) it is heretical to even suggest that biometric tracking of the daily attendance and routine of government officials might actually be counterproductive in the long run Universities are clamouring for biometric tracking of teacher and student presence on campus subtly transforming the character of these spaces The idea that party leaderships can track their subordinates in a kind of surveillance enterprise is bound to have effects on the very idea of a political party And then there is of course the massive recorded and unrecorded surveillance that the Indian state carries out To what effect one does not know Many of these forms of surveillance satiate our demand for discipline But their long-term effects are likely to be very corrosive They are often justified on debatable assumptions Often the first assumption is that a society that can produce these forms of disciplining can dispense with trust; it can rely on this artificially induced trust as it were Since we know we are monitoring them we can now have more confidence in government officials This assumption is debatable It is often said that if you cannot measure or track you cannot hold someone accountable There may be some truth to this But it is equally true that a society that is structured largely around tracking and measuring will probably produce more gaming of the system than genuine performance It is a mistake to think that discipline can replace the need for trust At most it displaces trust But the harm that it produces is to create a culture of suspicion where distrust becomes the norm Do these artificial practices of disciplining institutionalise distrust And is institutionalised distrust more harmful in the long run Second a disciplinary society is always a more hierarchical one Leaders use our clamour for discipline to increase their own power over subordinates It is no accident that party leaderships or governments often exult at the prospect of instituting more disciplinary measures In fact a disciplinary society produces a need to trust fewer people with more concentration of power Third the debate over mistrust and discipline is often presented as a debate over two views of human nature On one side there is Confucius who famously said that a ruler needs three things: food weapons and trust The ruler who cannot have all three should give up weapons first then food but he should never give up trust “Without trust we cannot stand” On the other side is the Machiavellian idea that we are wretched creatures and fear can only be sustained by the dread of punishment: surveillance is the foundation of danda But this debate is misconceived in two respects First it depends on how high your aspirations are It is arguable that fear can induce a certain kind of performance in government But if you want a government or a set of professionals to be genuinely creative they have to in a sense identify with their vocation make it their identity and take ownership But this is exactly what a discipline-induced identity militates against You can be pretty sure that a government founded on fear or an institution like a university run through surveillance is setting the bar very low: it is using external inducement to produce a simulacrum of performance The biggest reason for our institutional failures is not that we are wretched It is that these institutions are designed in such a way that those who inhabit them have no ownership of what goes on And the wider culture of distrust has now reinforced the idea that since you will be condemned anyway you might as well not perform Second as Foucault presciently noted the effect of modern forms of surveillance is not to compensate for a pre-identified wretchedness in our natures Rather it is to transform us in ways we have no control over The surveillance gaze transforms us making us largely effects of the disciplinary techniques that shape us This is not a world that prizes freedom or individuality Nor is it a view that understands that the world is less alienating when we can acquire social relationships and professional identities without a presumption of hostility Short-term discipline is being secured at the price of entrenching a long-term culture of suspicion No society can flourish on such a foundation If a government is only as good as its system of biometric attendance if the credibility of a teacher depends largely on the effectiveness of a third party tracking what she does and if a political party and the distribution of power in it are largely a function of its GPS systems we will be in great trouble as a society Somewhere this fascination with surveillance-based discipline has nothing to do with performance: it has to do with a possibly reactionary culture of control There is a deep disconnect between Modi’s faith in the dispositions and abilities of people and the message that the only way we can induce performance is through maximum government control over them The writer is president Centre for Policy Research Delhi and a contributing editor for ‘The

beating India in India is a big challenge (Source: AP) Related News New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson on Saturday conceded that it’s a huge task to beat India in their own backyard India will start overwhelming favourites when they take on an inconsistent New Zealand in a three-match ODI series starting on Sunday “India’s record is very good at home They are a very hard team to beat We know that at home in particular they are the strongest team in the world There are no illusions that we need to come out and play our best cricket” said Williamson ahead of the opening match at the Wankhede Stadium “We saw in the last series here that we were two all going into the decider which was a fairly good effort although we knew that perhaps we hadn’t played our best and it was a shame in that last game (in Visakhapatnam which the Kiwis lost to lose the rubber 2-3) It will be nice to come out in this series and do a little bit better” he hoped Of late we have been putting some good performances on the board and we know coming here it is a very tough challenge and we have to be aware of this” he added India’s record in bilateral ODI series at home has been phenomenal having lost just two out of 16 played since their defeat to Australia in 2009-10 “People talk a lot about adjusting to the conditions in India and that’s is really important not just when you come to India but the specific grounds you play at they are always a little bit differ nt We did that fairly well last time we were here and it would nice to do that better (this time) We still did not put out our best performance in that last series which was a hard fought series but we still were striving for that performance that we knew we could put out and hopefully we can show that in this series” The Kiwis would be playing their first-ever ODI against India at the Wankhede Stadium “Yes we played a couple of games in the World Cup against other opposition but the guys have played IPL games here it is a nice stadium and so it is nice to get the series underway here at the Wankhede” said the 27-year-old batsman Williamson said Martin Guptill and Colin Munro are his team’s openers and described the duo as good strikers of the ball “The opening batters for tomorrow (Sunday) are Guptill and Munro two good ball strikers Munro and Guptill at the top are both exciting stroke makers and look to play their natural game which is I think is important “Tom Latham will bat in the middle order He had some good time in the middle in the last couple of warm-up games and will obviously keep (wickets)” The middle and lower order barring himself and senior batsman Ross Taylor is relatively new but have the advantage of touring India with their country’s A team according to the Kiwi captain “Yes we have got a relatively new middle order They certainly deserve their position These guys were here on the A tour and experienced these conditions for a while coming into the series which is always good” he said In the warm-up games the team played at the Brabourne Stadium and Williamson said they had helped the side to get used to the conditions “Yes they were a couple of good head outs for us after a bit of a break from international cricket so it was nice to get back together and start acclimatising as best as we can The guys got through some good work We will put our foot forward coming into the first game and play our best cricket” he remarked He felt the track for the game was a good one “Looks like a fairly good surface I certainly will have another look at it tomorrow Generally wickets here at Wankhede are good surfaces and will expect something similar” he said “Yeah it is different Sometimes in our conditions where the ball moves off the seam aggression is often seen as having slips and various catchers Over here at times it may not be suited and it may be a bit more spin-friendly” he said about the challenge he faces while captaining in these conditions For all the latest
