Both the over-optimism among politicians and the excessive pessimism among business and industry can be bad for economic recovery We need a realistic balance between the two if we are to get a reasonably quick as well as a sustained recovery Two projections for 2012-13 from the economic survey encapsulate the negative story One is the current account deficitat 48 per cent of the GDPand the other is the growth rate of gross domestic product at constant market prices (GDPmp)at 33 per cent These are both unprecedented and unsustainable numbers The growth projection of 5 per cent for GDP at factor cost (GDPfc)which shocked many observersis about 18 per cent point higher than the number for GDPmp We last had such a low growth rate for GDPmp during the balance of payments crises of 1991-92when it plummeted to 1 per cent The CAD of 48 per cent has no historical precedent; the worst historical CAD was 3 per cent of the GDP in 1990-91when the BoP crises started The high inflation ratebest captured by a five-year 9 per cent average rise in the implicit GDP deflator for private consumptionis another symptom of macro-economic imbalance Howeverit is still lower than the nine-year average of 99 per cent from 1990-91 to 1998-99following the BoP crisis Despite underlying imbalances that look as bad asor worse thanbefore the 1991 crisisthere has been no crisis this time The reason is the foreign exchangetrade and capital flow reforms of the 1990swhich have allowed the economy to adjust without getting into a full-fledged crisis But the underlying problems still need to be addressedespecially if they are to be prevented from being a drag on the economy or if they result in an even bigger BoP crisis a decade later Fortunatelybecause of the reforms of the 1990swe now have more time to address them The 1990-91 crisis showed that a combination of macro rebalancing and structural reform could correct the macro imbalances and put us on a higher growth path than that of the 1980s The former involved a classic expenditure (fiscal deficit) reduction cum expenditure switching policy of real depreciationwhich got us out of the 1990 BoP crises Intelligently adapted to current economic conditionsincluding a much more open economyit can still bring results The Indian economy looks better from a medium-term global perspective India is currently one of only seven countriesout of around 250in the world with an average per capita GDP growth rate of over 6 per cent in the decade leading up to 2012 The ratio of Indias GDP growth to the growth of world GDP has shown virtually no change since 1994 In other wordsIndia has maintained its growth performancerelative to the world economysince 1994even though in any given year it may have performed better or worse Similarlythe ratio of the Indian economys growth rate to that of Chinas has been rising since 1994as Chinas growth slowedrelative to the world economy This trend rise in Indias growth raterelative to Chinasis very modest From about 60 per cent of Chinas growth rate in 1994-1995it went to about 80 per cent in 2011-2012 From this global medium-term perspective2012 is a bad but not unprecedented setbackfrom which we can still recover if we take the necessary corrective steps over the next three years There is need for policyregulatory and institutional reforms Part of the extreme business pessimism stems from the fact that one of our most cherished beliefssince the 1991 reformshas lost its credibility When reforms slowed after the initial burst in 1990swe in the ministry of finance used to tell foreign investors that the pace of reforms and the sector preference may vary with every governmentbut no governmentincluding the Left Fronthad reversed any reform Gradually at firstthen more rapidlynegative practices of the old licence-permit-inspector raj have returnedin sectors or areas still under the control of the government Whether this happened inadvertently or deliberatelyit has affected both domestic and foreign investors in the real economy and is a factor in the investment collapse It needs to be corrected through regulatory and institutional reforms Dont be misled by the FIIs lack of concern on this scoreas short-term investors are quite happy to profit from the high interest ratescompared to the USEurope and Japanand finance the high CAD for now In conclusionthe Indian economy is not doing as badly as investors in the real economy thinknor is it as good as many politicians and political advisors think The government must not abandon at the first sign of recovery its efforts to correct the imbalances and bottlenecks that have arisen The real economy investors must shed their pessimismas the government makes genuine efforts to restore growth and start investingso that the long-term growth trend is restored reasonably quickly The writer is non-resident senior fellowBrookingsand former chief economic advisorGovernment of India [email protected] For all the latest Opinion

lumpen elements They have taken advantage of the BJP’s anxiety to save the cow and its male progeny from the dinner table Top News I have never seen Narendra Modi so angry He had reason to be angry The lumpen elements who had jumped into the bandwagon of the gau rakshaks to make a quick buck had unwittingly derailed his party’s strategy for winning the coming elections to the UPlegislative assembly The BJP had counted on winning over the Dalits but the video showing gau rakshaks flogging four Dalit youth in Una upset these calculations Modi is a very astute politician He has from the time I can remember always advocated the protection of the cow probably to harvest the votes of devout Hindus He did not take into account those who are more interested in becoming rich overnight using the sacred animal as their conduit to wealth Modi is right in apportioning blame on these lumpen elements They have taken advantage of the BJP’s anxiety to save the cow and its male progeny from the dinner table Incidentally this element is also predominant in the VHP’s sword arm the Bajrang Dal But besides the Bajrang Dal many assorted extortionists and criminals have also joined in the game This should have been anticipated Criminal elements are always on the look-out for fresh pastures When terrorism raised its ugly head in Punjab in the 1980s smugglers who would otherwise have been put out of business by terrorist gangs joined the ranks of the latter So when the BJP decided to go all out on cow protection the mafia sensed an opportunity to target those who were making a living out of transporting cattle for sale to farmers or to butchers The next logical step for these criminals will be to terrorise those who earn a living from skinning cattle for the leather industry Those who run the leather industry will be very keen to pay them in order that their business can continue without impediment Which proves that the difficulty of doing business in our country increases when the rule of law is not upheld The PM had no alternative but to denounce what he conveniently termed the “fake” cow protectors Till this day he only knew of the good gau rakshaks They were set up by the RSS or the VHP many decades ago In Mumbai where I served as police commissioner in the 1980s I encountered them at the time of sacrifice at Bakrid They were persistent but amenable to the dictates of the law There is no doubt that ever since the BJP attained power at the Centre and in many states the gau rakshaks have become emboldened The bad ones are running amok thinking that they enjoy government protection The police is undoubtedly reluctant to act against these ruffians unless they get a green signal from their political bosses It is good that Modi has given that green signal by asking all the states to make a list of these self-styled gau rakshaks and take them to task Farm animals have been a part of the rural economy in all countries In Romania where I lived for four years I realised for the first time that it was better to be born a female if you were to exist as a bovine or a pig Male animals of the species are carefully fed and sent for slaughter Only a few lucky ones are preserved for breeding The problem in India is to look after the milch cattle after they stop producing milk The need to find space and facilities for poor old animals has arisen Modi did well to separate those who really felt for the cow and those who wanted to profit from such concerns Four or five years ago I was asked by the Bombay High Court if Muslims should be allowed to sacrifice horned cattle in the city outside the prescribed slaughterhouses during Bakrid In deference to majority sentiments I opposed this demand Muslim leaders present at a meeting called by the chief minister were terribly agitated on hearing my opinion But I think I took the correct stand I think Modi is also being wise and correct when he advises the state governments to come down heavily on those who take the law in their hands I wish only that he insists on the application of the same principle of upholding the rule of law to all types of crime including those of communal nature The

Updated: June 9 2017 1:42 pm Gulshan Grover gets candid about the repercussions of Baywatch and xXx failure on Bollywood Related News The original ‘Badman’ of Bollywood Gulshan Grover has been doing few Hindi films but has been a part of various international projects He is one of the first commercial Indian actors to have made the transition from Bollywood to Hollywood and allowed his work to do the talking In a candid conversation with indianexpresscom the star villain talks about why Indian actors find it difficult to find international projects where our actors stand on a global map and why the failure of Deepika Padukone’s xXx and Priyanka Chopra’s Baywatch is a bad sign for Indian actors trying their talent abroad You’ve been a part of various films Bollywood Hollywood and world cinema Your transition from Bollywood to Hollywood never made any noise Why so As you rightly said I am the first commercial Bollywood actor who started the transition from Bollywood to Hollywood There were many reasons for me to do so One of them was that the normal way of growth here is that you struggle then you become successful then you have a lot of trophies in your home then you have lots of hits and then at a certain age you retire and you get a lifetime achievement award Then you sort of grow fat and live your life comfortably Amitabh Bachchan came and changed the latter part of a film star’s life At 50 he grew that white beard and started to do roles that were central in the film of course even if he wasn’t a hero he was as one in the film It was his forward thinking Amitabh Bachchan’s I thought if you have dedicated your life to a passion you have to take it to the next level And that next level for we Indian actors is to go international That is something we are frightened of it is totally out of our comfort zone it is a new place and we are around new people You are a big star back in your country people will respect you and give you work only if you can deliver and not by who you are back home When I went there there was no internet and they didn’t know what work we do our stardom and popularity and what kind of films we have Real Hollywood was not aware of our presence and our work they didn’t know who Amitabh Bachchan is or Shah Rukh Khan is Indian films were only shown in a few Indian pockets there These are the people who thought of commercial Bollywood actors to be incapable and inadequate of talent and world exposure they thought real actors were from theatre or from art cinema My problem with that was that these are my colleagues who are great at what they do and just because they are paid a better salary and because they are popular doesn’t make them bad actors It is just that here they are popular for certain kinds of roles and they recycle these roles for that matter These are some of the reasons I explored the international cinema and I was shocked that people don’t know about the kind of work my colleagues and I do or did It is difficult to sit down big international directors and make them watch a three-hour film without subtitles earlier we didn’t have subtitles on VHS Hollywood was of the opinion that if you want to work in Hollywood leave your country and stay there to work But I wanted to change that Why should we leave our country and go there to find work Do they ask Hugh Grant Nicole Kidman Jackie Chan or Jean Reno to do that Since you’ve acted in at least a dozen international films tell us what difference do you find in Bollywood and Hollywood The large difference in Bollywood and Hollywood or international cinema is that they are more systematic They play well and give authorities responsibilities They have an unemotional approach towards the process of filmmaking People who are responsible for costumes it’s their work to do it actors have to go and perform that’s it Working hours are set the salary is set properly even lunch hours and break are scheduled and followed There is no ‘jugaad’ If an electric plug is not working on set then they just walk off because it is not safe but here the actors wouldn’t even know that they are working in an environment like that there would be someone who would do ‘jugaad’ and make that plug work even if it means playing unsafely There is a system in everything Whereas now we are trying to be systematic here but we depend a lot on our actors and our Indian way of enterprising paired with multitasking However we are not able to compete with their budgets and their way of planning really Kangana Ranaut is popular for giving her inputs when it comes to scripting dialogues etc Do actors abroad also give their inputs and filmmakers appreciate it More so can Indian actors do the same there Not even one Indian actor has reached that position where your thoughts are taken into account and that is not disrespectful It is about what we are translating into; if I am in a movie am I translating into 5 million dollars of business in India where I come from If Shah Rukh Khan is taken in a film will I be able to make 15-20 million dollar business in a film that is 200 million dollars If I am not sure of that then I am making more noise but not translating it into dollars and that’s not what they need So we have not reached that level yet in fact some of the recent releases have hurt our position Like xXx has hurt our stature at the negotiating tableThat we have India’s leading actor with such huge premieres but people didn’t really come to watch the film Unfortunately Baywatch and a film before that too The big last money grossing film from Hollywood is Jungle Book and it had just voices So unless we don’t generate that kind of money we don’t have the negotiating power and anybody who is saying that they are doing well is simply lying When it comes to international stars giving their inputs in the film it happens before filming starts they discuss and everything is put down on paper there are no changes made on the sets It’s not that Hollywood actors are given the script and they are okay with it They discuss there are changes made but it is on a professional level That decision has to be made prior to the process of going into filing That doesn’t happen in India and that has to stop So my younger friend Kangana with whom I did Gangster and I am very very fond of her I love the way she is acting and conducting her career It is a little risky gutsy and courageous for a female to start doing that in India and create a brand of her own She is sending the signals which are pathbreaking and this has never been done before and I applaud her effort How successful she will be is something that we will have to wait and watch You have been the long-standing ‘Badman’ in Bollywood Who do you think has played a great villainous role in recent films First of all a specialised villain a star villain who has an appeal of a star will not happen here for many many years to come and probably that will finish with me I am not saying that I am excellent because there are not many roles for a villain to be a star make an enormous amount of money be a household name Secondly a villain’s screen time is reduced their appearance on screen and posters is marginalised Look at all our films We were once part of the posters now villains don’t get that There is no scope for them to become villain stars I was the last person to get that Many of the villain roles now have lost the dignity of being a villain The casting of villains is now just to create a sensation Look at Dangal the girls are cast perfectly that doesn’t happen for a villain anymore in any film Karan Johar is a villain Amol Gupte is a cast as a villain it’s all just to sensationalise It is not given that a villain doesn’t need to be a good actor this compromises with the dignity of a villain Villains actually take the story forward he introduces wonderful moments and complexity to the story by his opposition It is not an actors fault his position is faltered” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by
