city collector refused to grant permission to hold the event A High Court appointed high power committee also refused permission to hold the event following which the organisers approached a division bench of the High Court with a revised proposal However the organisers of the powerboat racing event were not granted permission to build their stage on Marine Drive After a hearing of the high power committee appointed by the High Court all the members raised their objections to the use of the Marine Drive promenade for the event for three days Watch What Else is Making News The court granted permission for the event for the three scheduled days and directed the organisers to build a temporary jetty and a cabin and ensure that the view of the sea is not blocked It also wanted the organisers to dismantle the temporary arrangements within 48 hours after the event concludes A division bench of justices V M Kanade and P R Bora came down heavily on the BMC and the Mumbai Collector for obstructing the event over petty reasons when there are pressing issues which it said needs to be taken care of by the authorities Justice Kanade said “There is unauthorised construction and bad roads in the city Instead of resolving these critical issues that bother the citizens the civic body wants to deprive people of an international boating event” The court also pointed out that when the government has grand plans to develop tourism in the state holding up an event of this kind was unwarranted “This is a very narrow-minded approach The collector should have approached the court before refusing permission” said Justice Kanade The organisers conducted a presentation on the plans for the event to the committee members which included municipal commissioner Ajoy Mehta commissioner of police Dattatray Padsalgikar and chairperson of the Mumbai Heritage Conservation Committee Ramanath Jha on Wednesday The members however said that since the promenade is a heritage precinct it cannot be closed to the public for three days A civic official who also attended the meeting said that the members were apprehensive that granting permission to this event would be a precedent for other functions in the future “If we have refused to grant permission to the open air gymnasiums and changing the colour of the LED lights how can the promenade be closed to the public for three days The sanctity of the heritage precinct has to be maintained” said one member The official said that Padsalgikar raised concerns about traffic management in Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Road as it is a busy route According to the presentation the organisers wanted to build a stage on an area of 7500 square feet which will include a platform for the LED screen a technical watch tower a medical station a generator van a television camera platform chemical toilets and a radio studio among other structures Arvind Reddy coordinator of Procam said that he was confident that the event would be conducted

Mataram” which was what numerous freedom fighters sang as they went to jail Related News National anthems constitute a sub-genre of poetry that deserves to be read and interpreted by its own peculiar set of aesthetic and historical-political criteria in the same way as the hyperbolic Persian/ Urdu qaseedas Khaled Ahmed (‘Nationalism over verse’ IE June 12) treats some of our national anthems with his customary wit but the theme bristles with further resonances and ironies Urdu was adopted as Pakistan’s national language as it was seen to be quintessentially Muslim even though only 7 per cent of the population knew it — and that did not include MA Jinnah But the Pakistani national anthem is in Persian because that was the language in which Muslims had ruled India The language of the anthem was so to say Urdu raised to the power of Persian Share This Article Related Article Perhaps because the Pakistani anthem is in Persian Khaled Ahmed and others think it only fair to assert that the Indian anthem is in “heavily Sanskritised Bengali” But Bengali is a heavily Sanskritised language anyhow far more so than Hindi In any case the first stanza of that long poem is highly accessible because it is largely toponymic and language-neutral Lines like “Panjab Sindhu Gujarat Maratha Dravid Utkal Banga…” constitute rather more a basic geography lesson than an ideological Sanskritic/ Hindu overload In fact the truly Sanskritic anthem of India is not “Jana Gana Mana” but “Vande Mataram” which was what numerous freedom fighters sang as they went to jail It was rejected upon Independence because Muslims objected to the anthropomorphic deification of India as “Mother” But in Sri Lanka where Muslims are about 10 per cent not far below the Indian proportion of about 13 the anthem begins by hailing the country as Mother: “Sri Lanka matha” In an earlier version it was “Namo namo matha” The urge to personify one’s country as a parent is perhaps universal The Belgian national anthem takes the cake here by calling the country mother in the first line and then also father (as in “patrie” or fatherland) in the third Even in Mohammad Iqbal’s “Saare Jahan Se Achha” there is more than a hint of similar personification The Himalaya is described in human terms as our santri and paasbaan guard and watchman and in the next line it is seen as a father if not a mother in whose lap play a thousand rivers as do its little frolicking children: “Godi mein khelti hain jiski hazaron nadiyan” Iqbal wrote that jingoistic anthem in 1904 but by 1910 he had already changed his worldview In a substantially revised version of that song not half as widely known the second line is not “Hindi hain ham watan hai Hindostan hamara” but the vastly different “Muslim hain ham watan hai sara jahan hamara (We are Muslims and the whole world is our home)” wishfully recalling when Muslims ruled half of Spain This was such a pan-Islamic pipedream that several other Urdu poets duly mocked it Akbar Allahabadi said it was only “vaham-o guman hamara (our misapprehension and illusion)” that made us think that and Kaifi Azmi was even more scathing: “Rahne ko ghar nahin hai sara jahan hamara (We don’t have a house to live in and yet we claim the whole world is ours)” The Indian national anthem is rather less expansionist and vainglorious but it has been subjected to equally trenchant political satire Raghuvir Sahay has a poem that begins (in English translation): “Who is this in our anthem then this Bharat-bhagya-vidhata/ That every rag-clad urchin sings so blithely his guna-gatha” But now we seem to have moved on from those rhetorically charged and grandly sonorous times when anthems could be sung in full-throated rapture Many of us cannot even recall all the words of our national anthems and to help us out AR Rahman has kindly provided us with executive summaries: “Maa Tujhe Salaam” for “Vande Mataram” and simply “Jai Ho” for the palpably wasteful “Jaye hey jaya hey jaya hey/ Jaya jaya jaya jaya hey” How short and sweet and handy for this SMS/ Twitter generation The writer is a former professor of English Delhi University For all the latest Opinion News
