said India had just 25. WASP factors in the situation of the game plus the team’s last five years’ record before making a forecast The math seemed wrong however for if WASP does consider history it seemed to have ignored a very significant piece of statistic about Kohli — that before Sunday whenever he had scored a hundred in a chase India had won that match Moreover the visitors chasing 292 were 190/4 in the 38th over with Kohli having for company one of the game’s finest finishers Mahendra Singh Dhoni batting on 20 Against these facts the odds given looked outrageous And this conviction grew as the duo plundered their way through the batting powerplay overs and beyond to take the team to 223 for four in 42 overs Eventually however WASP’s prediction turned out to be as spot on as Sunday’s weather forecast of a balmy afternoon in Napier as India incredibly went on to lose the match by 24 runs What turned the tide in New Zealand’s favour was what had seemed to be their misfortune In the 41th over tearaway Adam Milne picked up a back injury and hobbled off leaving New Zealand with one bowling option less New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum had to bring in Mitchell McClenaghan In his 19-match career the 27-year-old left-arm pacer has made a reputation of giving Black Caps crucial breakthroughs He unleashed a well directed bouncer at Dhoni who tried to pull it only to top-edge it and wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi took a diving catch to his left McClenaghan then removed Ravindra Jadeja caught-behind in the same over before returning to claim Kohli’s prized scalp in the 44th over Having been hit for a four by the Delhi batsmen McClenaghan came around the wicket and delivered a full toss Kohli’s eyes must have lit up as he looked to crash the ball through covers once again However he shot right into the hands of Jesse Ryder It was redemption of sorts for Ryder for he had dropped the batsman when he was at 95 As Kohli trudged back McLean Park which first sighed in relief then gave him a standing ovation At the same time the DJ who had been alternating between English and Hindi songs playing everything from Dire Straits to Honey Singh often ill-timed put on a rather obscure number from Company “…Nahi dooja mauka milega sambhalna…” it blared Ironically New Zealand Ryder and Kohli all three benefitted from the second chance India’s resistance didn’t last long as they folded up 35 runs later for 268 in 485 overs The hero of New Zealand’s bowling Mcleanghan had finished the job that his teammate Corey Anderson had started with the bat Before the start of the series two ‘fast’ Kiwi players had been built up quite a bit Anderson who had hit the fastest ODI century against the West Indies in 36 balls on New Year and Adam Milne who became the fastest New Zealand bowler since Shane Bond when he clocked a 1539 delivery against WI in a T20 match last week Going fast piling runs While Milne did touch 153 again it was Anderson who touched heights First Anderson built on a platform set up by Kane Williamson (71) and Ross Taylor (53) who had added 122 runs for the third wicket by smashing an unbeaten 40-ball 68 The boundaries may be small in New Zealand as has been documented but a couple of Anderson’s shots landed well outside the stadium with the biggest of them being 121m His knock propelled what was looking like a 250-run total to just shy of 300 making Dhoni perhaps regret his decision to send the hosts in Then when the India batsmen were looking like making a recovery after Rohit Sharma’s early dismissal the left-arm pacer Anderson removed Dhawan and Rahane in two overs IPL teams must be watching keenly Soon after McClenaghan removed Suresh Raina with a bouncer as the batsman top-edged it while trying to play a pull shot — not the first Indian batsman on the day to get out in this fashion nor the last India were 129 for four at this stage when Kohli and Dhoni set about getting India back on track They started gradually before cutting loose during the batting powerplay With his back to a stunning crimson sunset which looked like a volcano erupting Kohli too exploded in the 35th over starting with successive fours off Mitchell McClenaghan as India plundered 41 runs in five overs Then the law of averages and McLenghan hit back at Kohli and India For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service

Subramanian Swamy’s comments though aimed at RBI governor Raghuram Rajan personally have significance for the inflation targeting framework of the RBI In the Budget Session of parliament the RBI Act 1934 was amended as part of the finance bill Inflation targeting has now become law Soon the government will notify the level of inflation it wants the RBI to target in the next five years I argue here that in the present circumstances the target inflation rate should be five per cent Successful inflation targeting requires reforms that have not been implemented so far Without a well-functioning bond market end of financial repression a competitive banking sector an independent government debt manager and full understanding and commitment on part of government to low and stable inflation inflation targeting will be a pipe dream In the last 25 years the RBI has sometimes raised or lowered policy rates in order to control inflation either of its own account or since last year as part of a formal agreement with the government The Monetary Policy Framework Agreement (MPFA) signed in February 2015 for the first time put in place an inflation target agreed upon by the RBI and government As a first step towards making a commitment to low and stable inflation this was a significant step Many an expert committee had recommended that India should do what most other countries including emerging economies had done and adopt inflation targeting as the objective of monetary policy This framework was formalised with the signing of the MPFA In the past the RBI had not systematically used either Consumer Price Index (CPI) or Wholesale Price Index (WPI) as the inflation target However the MPFA made CPI the mutually agreed target Since then it was no longer Rajan’s unilateral decision to move from WPI to CPI as Swamy believes More so last week through the amendment to the RBI Act Parliament made CPI the target But the main reason for Swamy’s unhappiness with the target appears to be the high interest rate regime under Rajan This no doubt is hurting industry and employment What should the government do to help ensure that the objective of low and stable inflation as well as economic growth is achieved First the government has the responsibility of notifying the inflation rate that it wishes to achieve This rate is to be set every five years The inflation target in the MPFA chosen by government and the RBI was 6 per cent by January 2016 and then 4 per cent for 2016-17 and thereafter (with a band of 2 per cent) This sudden jump down in the inflation rate appears at odds with the stated intent outlined in the Urjit Patel Committee report of setting a glide path to inflation A glide path in the case of other countries such as Chile and the Czech Republic cited in the report was slower and smoother and a lowering of the target was done when the existing target was achieved and stabilised For India a glide path would have meant that the economy reaches a stable 6 per cent becomes comfortable with it and then only the target is lowered to 5 per cent If 4 per cent is the long-run stable target as argued in the Urjit Patel Committee report it would be unrealistic to jump straight to it Second the government and the RBI should together review India’s first experience with formal inflation targeting One of the well-known problems with monetary policy in the past one year has been the lack of transmission It appears that given the lack of other reforms in the financial markets such as the creation of a well-functioning bond market a competitive and market-oriented banking system and a bond-currency-derivative nexus monetary policy transmission does not happen easily In this set-up it is unlikely that the three-year path to a low and stable inflation envisaged in the MPFA can be achieved in a hurry It is important that we ask whether more reforms are needed before the target is lowered Even if the government decides to lower the target it should consider moving it from the present 6 per cent to 5 per cent After transmission improves inflation stabilises at 5 per cent and inflationary expectations come down in the next setting of the inflation target five years later the target could be brought down to the long-run target of 4 per cent Third if the government wants to give the country low and stable inflation by adopting an independent monetary policy it should clearly signal that it does not want the RBI to peg the exchange rate One reason for the high interest rate regime has been the reluctance to ease liquidity after the shock to the rupee following the taper talk in May 2013 The unstated mandate of the RBI seems to be that it has to manage the exchange rate and prevent it from depreciation Fourth the government needs to put an end to the foolish notion that the RBI can target WPI The bulk of the items in WPI are tradables Their prices are determined in international markets WPI inflation closely follows the US producer price index based inflation rate Inflation in WPI is determined by global commodity prices and not by domestic monetary policy In other words targeting WPI would be akin to targeting global commodity prices something no central bank has control over It is not surprising that no country ever tries to target it From the point of view of the domestic mandate inflation measures based on CPI are the most common target for inflation-targeting countries A couple of countries strip CPI of volatile food prices but most central banks mainly use such a concept of “core inflation” in their internal models CPI is the measure consumers relate to WPI does not represent anyone’s basket and at best represents the price of inputs and outputs for producers The choice of CPI is superior to the WPI because it measures the cost of living for consumers Even though food is volatile but because it matters to households it is the rise in cost of living they care about After all governments adopt inflation targeting as the mandate they give to central banks because they want voters to have low and stable inflation Incidentally they also hand over this task to central banks so that if people get unhappy such as with rate hikes it is the central bank that gets blamed Swamy seems to be doing pretty much that The writer is professor National Institute of

a small village in Kulgam district after Suhail Ahmad Tantray a young Hizbul Mujahideen militant was killed along with his associate Aaqib Itoo in an ambush laid under a bridge by the army in Gopalpora village in wee hours of Thursday Kirmani 19 a tall skinny boy — wearing blue jeans and a baggy shirt — stood out on the attic of a single-storied house surrounded by wailing women on the edge of the ground where the dead body of Tantray was placed on a makeshift elevated platform for people to have a last glimpse But Kirmani son of a prosperous businessman had not come here to be part of the funeral procession that drew thousands of people from adjoining and far-off villages of Kulgam district A militant offers gun-salute at the funeral of Suhail Ahmad Tantray in a village in Kulgam Image courtesy: Hilal Shah When he heard about the killing of militants in Gopalpora he dialed his friend’s number The two rode on a motorcycle but parked it few kilometers ahead of the village From there they walked to Tantraypora Every minute they spent at the ground where the body was kept brought more and more mourners: Children women and even elderly But Kirmani was looking for something else: A militant with an AK-47 who often turned up at the funerals of their fallen comrades these days to offer them gun-salute Out of nowhere two young men with curly hair flowing beards dressed in military fatigues cloaked under a Kashmiri pheran appeared in the crowd flaunting their AK-47 rifles There were loud cheers Applause followed Mourners jostled to hug or kiss the gun-wielding men As if by design the commotion brought them up to the elevated platform As he saw the gun-wielding men Kirmani ran down the stairs and pushed himself into the crowd struggling for an inch of space at one point Within minutes he was on the stage and managed a quick handshake with one of the militants who stood on the right side of the slain militant’s body Before starting his speech the militant raised anti-India pro-freedom and pro-Islam slogans Then flaunting his AK-47 in the air he fired few shots His associate joined in A loud cheer followed In an atmosphere of festivity the crowds struggled to hold and touch the militants as if a famous cricketer was walking to the dressing room after hitting a century “I wanted to kiss his forehead” an elated Kirmani told Firstpost after the funeral “The very sight of a young militant motivates you to fight for your land and your people You may die very soon in this fight get killed in three days or three months but you die like a hero” It is the machismo of this moment despite all the crackdowns and possibly the largest manhunt to eliminate militants in more than two decades of insurgency in Kashmir that has made legends out of these young boys and motivates others to take guns into their hands There are so many stories where folklores and other apocryphal tales are attached to militants in order to romanticise their lives in the minds of the younger generation As long as there are stories about bravado floating in air militancy will find young boys to embrace it On 16 June I was speaking with the father of Junaid Ahmad Matoo a top Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) commander who was killed in an encounter when hundreds of young boys ran towards a large ground in Kudwani area where the body of Matoo was kept for public display followed by multiple rounds of funerals Armed with an Insas rifle I saw a young boy sandwiched between two teenaged boys on a motorcycle He fired shots in the air before disappearing into the crowd only to return again Few hundred metres away three soldiers guarding a government building watched in awe And for better or worse the younger generation of children seems to have developed a liking for these young men for achieving them their political aspirations As thousands of people made way for the motorcycle the gunshots brought people on their toes and they cheered rapturously “This is a different generation” Manzoor Ahmad Matoo father of Junaid Matoo told Firstpost “They will do anything to merely touch the man who is holding a gun Today one die and there are hundreds struggling to get in the fold of militancy unlike early nineties” Thousands gather to have a last glimpse of Tantray who was killed in an ambush in Kulgam Image courtesy: Hilal Shah Back in Tantraypora after the funeral procession was over Rafiq Ahmad Shah a retired headmaster of a government school sat cross-legged on the pavement near a kirana shop talking to village elders “If a militant appears in a funeral it has the power to attract hundreds towards the idea of militancy The only problem is Pakistan that has stopped giving guns to these boys Either way it is the return of 1989 in every village of Kulgam” Shah 66 a resident of Tantraypora village told me Shah was referring to the early nineties when after decades of political discontent with New Delhi thousands of young Kashmiri men crossed the treacherous Line of Control for arms training Every day hundreds of young men would leave the comfort of their homes to participate in the ‘freedom movement’ “That movement will never come back to Kashmir but it has metamorphosed into something very dangerous Today it is the few gunshots or the aura of gun that motivates this young generation to adopt the path of militancy” Shah said “The truth is that this maddening love for militants in our younger generation as every funeral tells us these days is signaling that these militants may not live forever but the idea will” The new phase of militancy gained speed after the killing of Burhan Wani last year but the sheer audacity of parading themselves in front of the cameras also brings back memories of early 1990s “But the kind of impact their appearance is having on the younger generation of Kashmiri youth is phenomenal” Imran Jalali a student of politics and a resident of Kulgam said “By the end of July next year a majority of these militants might well be dead But the reality today is that for every gun today there are at least hundred aspiring militants waiting in line You may or may not like it but this is the truth” Shah said as his friends nodded their heads in agreement “That” says Waheed-ur-Rehman Para youth president of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party “is because we lack role models and icons We have to offer them better ideas than the idea of militancy” “It is also because the governance and polity has time and again failed the younger generation of Kashmir More than the love of militants it is the hatred against the State that makes an idea like militancy attractive f0r younger generation of Kashmir" In the first seven months this year the security forces have killed 119 militants recovering the ground lost following the 2016 uprising by building human intelligence and mounting a massive counter-insurgency operation against the militants in the four districts of south Kashmir At Tantraypora I walked with Kirmani and his friend to the spot where he had parked his bike As anti-India and pro-freedom slogans reverberated in the air I asked him if he would want to see the militants again: “Yes” he replied calmly “Who knows I may come next time to offer the gun-salute" The pollution levels in the national capital is reaching alarming heights As per
