News The Delhi Congress on Tuesday said it would be writing to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government opposing its “arbitrary” decision to disallow FDI in multi-brand retail The Congress also said it would call for a discussion on the matter in the Delhi Assembly Leader of Congress Legislature Party (CLP) Haroon Yusuf said the decision was in complete violation of legal procedures “If the government has to take a certain decision there are procedures that need to be followed The decision to allow FDI in multi-brand retail was taken by the Cabinet and discussed in the Assembly” he said The AAP government in Delhi had written to the Centre on Monday withdrawing the approval given by the previous Congress government for FDI in multi-brand retail while stating that an entry of global chains — such as Walmart and Tesco — would result in large-scale loss of employment The BJP which won 32 seats in the Delhi Assembly elections but couldn’t form the government had also threatened to block the entry of foreign supermarkets The AAP had opposed FDI in retail during their election campaign and argued that if it enters the retail sector then small-scale Indian businessmen will be left with nothing Further Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had reiterated that the Walmart experience in the US had showed that farmers didn’t benefit from the move and were deprived of their livelihoods Yusuf countered AAP’s rationale and claimed that FDI in multi-brand retail would in fact benefit farmers “The move would cut down the middle-men and effectively create more opportunities for poor farmers This is why the (previous) Delhi government had implemented it” he said Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely said the decision didn’t have any legal backing Asked if the Congress would withdraw support he said “It’s not a question of withdrawing support But we will analyse the details and investigate the legality of the letter which has been written to the Commerce Ministry” The Congress also said the letter sent to it by the AAP before the formation of government hadn’t mentioned the issue of FDI in multi-brand retail For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App

aspects of mental health such as anxiety social acceptance self-worth and symptoms of depression researchers say “Our research found that the quality of friendships during adolescence may directly predict aspects of long-term mental and emotional health” said lead author Rachel K Narr PhD candidate in clinical psychology at the University of Virginia “High school students with higher-quality best friendships tended to improve in several aspects of mental health over time while teens who were popular among their peers during high school may be more prone to social anxiety later in life” Narr added The study published in the journal Child Development looked at a community sample of 169 adolescents over 10 years from the time they were age 15 to when they were 25 The youth were racially ethnically and socio-economically diverse with 58 per cent Caucasian 29 per cent African American and eight per cent of mixed race or ethnicity and with median family income $40000 to $59999 Adolescents were assessed annually answering questions about who their closest friends were reporting on their friendships and participating in interviews and assessments exploring such feelings as anxiety social acceptance self-worth and symptoms of depression Researchers found that teens who prioritised close friendships at age 15 had lower social anxiety an increased sense of self-worth and fewer symptoms of depression by the time they reached age 25 than their peers Neither having a strong friendship nor being more popular predicted short-term changes in mental health the researchers noted The researchers suggested that this may be because positive experiences with friends help bolster positive feelings about oneself during a stage of life when personal identity is being developed Also close friendships may set adolescents on a trajectory to expect and therefore encourage supportive experiences in the future For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More

of the India Art Fair (IAF) have already begun And the organisers this time promise newer elements that will set the stage for a stronger regional art market Marco Fazzone Managing Director of Design and Regional Art Fairs who has been instrumental in creating the brand of Art Basel has joined the partnership In an interview Fazzone talks about their plans for the upcoming edition Excerpts: What is your assessment of the India Art Fair since its inception in 2008 The IAF has established itself as the leading art fair in India It has acted as both a catalyst and an aggregator for the art market in India bringing galleries artists and collectors together The event measures success by the quality and range of work it shows innovation strong representation of the South Asian region sales and the impressive footfall — which increased from 10000 during the first edition to over 100000 visitors in 2016 How will the regional art fairs of which India is a part of be different from the brand of Art Basel And why notbring Art Basel to India Regional art fairs cater to a particular area through their engagement with collectors galleries artists and stakeholders and are a point of reference in that region The size of a region may vary from a city to a state from a country to a whole continent The IAF for example is exceptional for its engagement in South Asia We shall retain and develop the regional integrity of each fair in the portfolio It is not intended to make the regional fairs into global fairs like Art Basel What new can we expect in the February 2017 edition of IAF We will focus on sharing expertise regarding the offered services — physical and digital We are currently developing a new digital offer for IAF 2018 As the leading face-to-face platform for art in India it deserves an integrated digital platform What is your impression of the current art market in India We have chosen India as the first regional art fair on account of the current growth and momentum of the country’s economy and its growing art market Many new collectors are entering the market as art becomes a popular and important part of many more people’s lives For all the latest

strategy and a means to cope with distress arising from droughtflood and lack of employment opportunities locally There is one section of the population which migrates to get better educationskills and employment People may also migrate for political and social reasonssuch as ethnic conflictsriots and the pressures of various forms of subjugation It is not just a route to employment and education but also a means to more freedom Migrants are not a homogeneous group There are huge variations in agegendereducational leveloccupational statusskillsearnings as well as linguistic and cultural background As a resultthey experience different levels of vulnerability and inclusion Migrants with poor skills and educationdriven by distressare hugely vulnerable and suffer from deprivations and exploitation in the places they migrate to The recent UNESCO report titled Social Inclusion of Internal Migrants in India highlights that internal migrants are a neglected segment of Indias population There is a need to mainstream internal migration into our development process About a third of Indias population is categorised as internal migrant by the census Roughly half of them participate in the workforce Migrant workers are a visible component in big and small cities as well as in rural areas with growing agricultural and allied sectors Migrants are prominently employed in the construction and textile sectorsin the domestic workforceat brick kilns and salt pans They are also employed in commercial and plantation agricultureand in the the urban informal sectorworking as vendorshawkersrickshaw pullers and daily wage workers They contribute to the rising GDP of India and send remittances to their families back hometo be spent on foodeducation and healthcare Remittances by internal migrants amount to about Rs 60000-70000 crore But financial inclusion has not spread much among migrants yet only 30 per cent of the remittances are sent through formal channels States like BiharUttar PradeshRajasthanOdisha and Uttarakhand are the major recipients of internal remittances Returning migrants bring a variety of skillsinnovation and knowledge to their areas of origin These are the social remittances In the long runmigration could play a positive role With the right type of policyit could benefit both the areas of origin and the areas that receive migrants The UNESCO publication points out that migration cannot be stopped It is a historical process that shapes human civilisationculture and development Article 19 of the Indian Constitution grants citizens the fundamental right to move There are about 15 million seasonal and temporary migrantsaccording to the National Sample Survey (NSS) They are not able to exercise their political and economic rights because rights and entitlements are place bound Lacking formal residential and identity proofsmany short-duration migrants are barred from exercising their voting rights They are also excluded from the PDS and other government programmes The UNESCO report highlights the urgent need to ensure that internal migrants are issued a universally recognised and portable proof of identitywhich can be used to claim socio-economic entitlements anywhere in the country Our political and economic rights and entitlements must also be made portable Gender is an important dimension of migration Although most women migrate along with their family membersmany also move independently The statistical database on these independent migrations is extremely poor The census and the NSS usually cite marriage as a reason for these migrations But a large number of such women do work before and after migration Migrant women and adolescent girls are particularly vulnerable to sexual harassment and trafficking Many of them come from poorilliterate and tribal backgrounds There is an urgent need to ensure safe migration for women workers particularly those joining the domestic workforce Seasonal migrants often take their children along when they move to other places for work This affects regular and continued schooling These children could be kept in the source regionin seasonal hostels Another option is to set up work-site schools in the places they migrate to As the Indian economy growsurbanisation is inevitable Shelter is an important issue for the migrant and homeless population in urban areasespecially in the big cities Migration issues should be factored into city development plans geared to realise the goals of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission and the Rajiv Awas Yojana Night shelters as well as working womens and mens hostels could be incorporated in city development plans There are a host of laws on labour issues but these are inadequate to deal with the conditions migrant have to face The Inter-state Migrant Workmen Regulation Act1979which deals with contractor-led movement of inter-state migrant labouris not enforced either Moreoverwhile a segment of migrant workers moves along with contractorsmany also move independentlythrough the network of familyfriends and kin More importantlymigration should not be seen merely as a law enforcement and

governments eyesbut supporting Nelson Mandela in South Africa was deemed illegal during the apartheid era To fly over Syrias territory may violate official norms of international relationsbut governments do this when they support opposition groups with weaponsmoney or intelligenceas NATO countries did recently in Libya In any eventviolations of Syrian sovereignty would be the direct consequence of the Syrian states brutalitynot the imperialism of outsiders There are some obvious risks and downsides to the drone approach The Syrian government would undoubtedly seize the opportunity to blame a foreign conspiracy for its troubles Local operators of the drones could be at riskthough a higher-end drone could be controlled from a remote location or a neighbouring country
