relief as it once was Some of all that is true; there are hard numbers for confirmation And heres something else that is true: we care less about the weather And: we might well be responsibleand not because of greenhouse gaseseither Delhifor exampleis supposed to be semi-desertwith dry scrub as the survey of India maps used to put it as vegetationand life clustered around the life-giving river Drive through Delhi today Or take a lift to the top floor of one of the few buildings that pierce the city centres canopy of trees one of the hotelsperhaps and look around You dont see semi-desert You see green Humansseeking refuge from the blazing sunhave changed what this city looks like Further outin the farms that you cant see through the dust hazepumps run for hours in the daypushing water out for paddy Humansseeking refuge from the parched summerhave changed what cultivation looks like Andinvisible beyond the curved green horizonfarfar to the southare the endless farms of the centre of Indiafarms that exist where oncenot so long agothere was uninterrupted jungle But what does this defence against the heat have to do with this apparently endlesspavement-meltinghair-curlingenergy-sappingquarrel-causingteeth-clenchingly awful summer The answer lies in how the monsoon works: as a front of humid air moving up in response to the build-up of dryhot air over the northern plains As we planted trees and irrigated our plainswe reduced how dry that air was; the increased humidity meant the pressure on humid air from the south-east to move north-west wasnt as strong Andas we cut down our forestswe reduced the amount of humidity that air would pick up on the way So we have a weak monsoon that doesnt rush in arriving and coolers that dont work like they used to because the entire north-west is more humid than it used to be Unsurprisinglyif ironicallyits the north-westthe home of the green revolutionthat has gone thirstiest in recent bad monsoons; it looks like it will be the same this time At around 80 per cent of normalthe irrigation miracle itself might be in danger if the groundwater isnt replenishedand if low water levels in the big dams endanger power production Weve tried to beat the weather But weather grows up and becomes climateand then were doing the running For most of us in the citiesthe apparently endless summer might dominate our days and make normal life difficult butin the endit is little more than an inconvenience A short train ride away from ushoweverfamilies futures are balanced on a knife-edgeanxious eyes are fixed on the horizonwaiting for clouds and that suddenswift gust of cooler air It had become fashionable for a while to speak of how the economy was no longer dependent on the monsoon being a normal one That was always a slightly inhumanpassionless way of looking at it The numbers might no longer be hit as hardbut that does not mean that people arent The contribution of industry and services to the GDP has grownbut their contribution to employment hasnt kept up So agriculture still directly employs 60 per cent of India And 60 per cent of agricultural land isnt irrigated Our push-back against climate uncertainty simply hasnt been good enough The last time the rains were below normal was in 2002 (July that year saw less than half the expected rainfall) Both the fiscal deficit and the growth rate suffered; and in places with particularly high indebtedness and particularly low rainfallthat parchedlong summer saw the dreams of upwardly-mobile farming families shatterandsome arguecaused seasons of higher-than-normal farmer suicides Were living off the impact of that summerpoliticallystill: it contributed to the UPAs victory in 2004to the alliances post-election agendaand to the success of that agenda particularly the rural loan waiver The big difference between now and 2002 is the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act The UPAs flagship programmewhich the government plans to extendwill be tested as never before Prepare for any weaknesses in implementation to be thrown into glaring relief But one thing that the government will look at from 2002 with hope is the anomalous figures for foodgrain stocks: that year grain reserves actually increased (Which tells us that the old linkswhich were so easy to theorise aboutbetween the monsoonsubsistence farming and food shortageshave broken down The rural economy is a lot more complex than it used to beand the economic and human cost of a failed monsoon doesnt have to be through famine) We can all hope that will happen again this yearespecially if the governments ambitious plans for a right-to-food programme are pushed through as quickly as possible to streamline distribution Soone lesson that could have been picked up by reading this far: those of us sweltering in the concrete heat-traps that we choose to call cities are fortunate Yesbut that would be a grievously incomplete story Because double-glazing and air-conditioning cannot insulate us from all the effects of the pitiless summer sun Like urban Indiain spite of being relatively closed and unexposed to modern structured financecould not escape the financial crisisa slowdown in rural growth will touch all our lives After allwe have been told for a long time that the engine of recovery is going to be rural demand and that it might be immune to the modern business cycle This isnt a good time for that engine to stop running And the increased calls on the governments purse might well lead to a fund crunch for more urban projects; more borrowing from the government to cover those demands might put pressure on interest ratessqueezing monthly household budgets; if rural-urban migration responds as it did in earlier yearsstress on our cities will increase And all this assumes that food prices will not spiral out of control Ohand extra power will be diverted to farmsincreasing load-shedding in cities just ask Chandigarhwhich is runningin anticipationa hopeful campaign urging people to switch off ACs The lesson isnt that insulating ourselves from the effects of the climate is a bad idea Nothe lesson is that weve got to push on regardless We might have to be smarter about it (Is it necessary to grow paddy in semi-desertreally Should we be incentivising that)but we cannot stop The trees that line Delhis roads and the NREGA are all of a piece trying to moderate the extremesmaking our cities and our villages a little more liveableregardless of what El Nio might throw at us

together to take on the activists Sandeep Daundkar Related News IT’S TWO in the afternoon at the village Shani Shingnapur A group of 8-10 women are sitting under a porch Generally their conversations revolve mundane routine rising prices weather or some gossip going around the village However today they have come together for a purpose They are discussing the upcoming protest that will be held on January 26 at the Shani Shingnapur in which they are determined to participate in order ‘to safeguard the age-old belief’ This village has been in news for some time now following the controversy around the temple’s rule that forbids women from entering the core shrine area It all began in November when after a woman entered the shrine area the villagers allegedly performed “purification” of the area — which was later denied by the trustees attracting criticism from activists for being gender-biased While a group named Bhumata Brigade has announced a move that will break the temple’s “rule” on January 26 the temple management too has started “preparing” for the big day The manager of the temple Sanjay Banr said “It is not about men or women but about following the age-old ritual No veda purana or shastra says that the puja of Lord Shani is performed by a woman” said Bankar adding that the crowd will start gathering at the temple from the night of January 25 itself and everyone will be “alert” to catch miscreants Almost 3000 people are expected to join the protest Security staff will be increased to double its capacity Anita Shete who became the first woman to hold the position of the president of Shani Temple Trust last week maintains that her appointment proves that the temple is not against women but she stresses that the appointment will not change the age-old practice Bankar’s claim about the villagers supporting the temple trust appears true when one goes around speaking to people The villagers believe in the temple’s rule and with an equal zest they are set to stop Bhumata Brigade against storming the temple Kamaldyandevi Sable former sarpanch of Shani Shingnapur has been going around the village urging women to participate She says she is upset that the controversy is bringing bad name to the village that has always commanded respect for being a ‘village without doors’ “Barring a handful incidences of thefts the village has never had any bad experiences And it’s all because of the presence of Lord Shani in our village It’s not superstition but our faith Almost 15 years ago Narendra Dabholkar tried to do the same but failed” she said All set to take part in the protest 65-year-old Shevantabai Belekar says “Muslim women have never demanded an entry in the mosque Why should only the Hindus let go off their beliefs ” Interestingly Bankar’s claim that from the past five years even men except the priest have been banned from entering the core shrine area does not hold ground because at the temple any man who has a receipt of Rs 11101 can find an entry in the core shrine area during the maha-aarti Asked how many men take such receipts he said “A lot of men do that on a daily basis; only one man at a time can perform the maha-aarti” Besides even in the month of shravan men are given entry to the shrine area Meanwhile Trupti Desai of Bhumata Brigade says that their team has mobilised women from across the state to participate on that day “We are demanding equal rights to worship Lord Shani If they have nothing against women then why can’t they allow us or atleast have a woman priest We have hired a helicopter and have sought permission from the collector If we will not be able to get ‘darshan’ the normal way we will reach the chauthara with the helicopter” she said For all the latest Pune News
