Hafta 299: Zee News on Delhi riots, federalism in India, and the state of Opposition parties in Kashmir
Help us understand what you like, or dislike, about NL Hafta before it goes behind the paywall again. Take the survey here. This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Raman Kirpal and Mehraj D Lone are joined by independent journalist Rohini Mohan. The panelists discuss Zee News refusing to reveal its sources to the Delhi High Court with regard to its reporting on the Delhi riots. Abhinandan asks if it’s time to revisit long-established traditions like freedom of speech. Manisha believes that “revealing sources by one TV channel in court can set a precedent, which can be used against other journalists going forward”. On the changing nature of federalism in India, which is one of the reasons for the BJP’s failure in some southern states, Rohini says: “Whether it’s a BJP-ruled state or not, there’s a growing sense of the Centre overstepping its functions — GST being the great betrayal.” Raman agrees, saying that through bodies like the CBI and the ED, the Centre’s intervention into state affairs has become more blatant.   In the context of states rebelling against the Centre, such as Punjab passing ordinances challenging the former’s agriculture laws, Mehraj talks about the situation in Kashmir. Explaining the recent crackdown on Omar Abdullah in a money laundering case, he says, “They [the Centre] will not allow even a little voice against them.” Opposition parties have now been pushed to the fringe, he says, their power slowly being shifted towards newly installed local leaders.   This and a lot more, so listen up!

Ep. 74: भारतीय सेनाएँ ताल से ताल कैसे मिलाएँ?
Even today, India’s armed forces largely conduct their operations in silos. It is for this reason that the Chief of Defence Staff position was created and specifically mandated to create integrated theatre commands that would allow systematic cooperation of all three forces in large numbers during war. So in this _Puliyabaazi_, we are joined by Lt Gen (Dr) Prakash Menon to discuss jointness in India’s military. एयरफोर्स, नेवी, आर्मी - यह तीनों सेनाएँ भारत में आज भी काफी हद तक अपनी अपनी अलग धुन पर चलती हैं | लेकिन आज के युद्धों में इन सेनाओं का ज़्यादा से ज़्यादा तालमेल अनिवार्य हो गया है| इस उद्देश्य के लिए ही हाल ही में भारत सरकार ने चीफ ऑफ़ डिफेन्स स्टाफ (CDS) पद का गठन किया है | तो इस मिलिट्री पुलियाबाज़ी में हमने इसी सैन्य तालमेल पर चर्चा की लेफ्टिनेंट जनरल प्रकाश मेनन से| Readings: * India’s Theatre Command System: A Proposal, Takshashila Discussion Document, by Lt Gen Prakash Menon * The Four Aspects of Joint, Aaron P Jackson Puliyabaazi is on these platforms: Twitter: https://twitter.com/puliyabaazi Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/puliyabaazi Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/puliyabaazi/ Subscribe & listen to the podcast on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Castbox, AudioBoom, YouTube, Spotify or any other podcast app.

बिहार चुनाव, पार्टियों के घोषणापत्र और फ्री कोरोना वैक्सीन
एनएल चर्चा के 139वें एपिसोड में बातचीत विशेष रूप से बिहार चुनावों पर केंद्रित रही. जिसमें बीजेपी समेत अन्य पार्टियों के मेनिफेस्टो की चर्चा हुई, अमेरिकी राष्ट्रपति चुनावों की आखिरी डिबेट, दिल्ली की बिगड़ती हुई हवा और पेरिस में पैगंबर मोहम्मद साहब के व्यंग्य चित्रों को साझा करने पर हुई टीचर की हत्या समेत कई अन्य विषयों का जिक्र हुआ. इस बार चर्चा में रेडियो नीदरलैंड के इंडिया कंसर्न, लव मैटर्स इंडिया की सोशल मीडिया ऑफिसर और लेखिका अनु शक्ति सिंह, स्तंभकार आनंद वर्धन और न्यूज़लॉन्ड्री के एसोसिएट एडिटर मेघनाद एस शामिल हुए. चर्चा का संचालन न्यूज़लॉन्ड्री के कार्यकारी संपादक अतुल चौरसिया ने किया. अतुल ने चर्चा की शुरुआत बिहार चुनावों में बीजेपी द्वारा मुफ्त वैक्सीन देने की घोषणा पर आनंद से सवाल करते हुए कहा,  “जो महामारी की स्थिति है उसमें कोरोना वैक्सीन का बिहार के लोगों को फ्री देने का क्या मतलब है, जबकि पूरी दुनिया महामारी से ग्रस्त है. क्या म हामारी का चुनावी फायदा उठाना नाजायज है? यह कितना जरूरी मुद्दा है.”   आनंद कहते हैं,  “मुझे लगता हैं यह अनावश्यक विवाद है. हम राजनीति मासूमियत के दौर में नहीं रह रहे हैं. पब्लिक हेल्थ से जुड़ा कोई वादा अगर किया जाता है तो वह स्टेट लिस्ट में आता है. दूसरी बात मेरा आकलन है कि बिहार के चुनावों में कोरोना उतना बड़ा मुद्दा नहीं है. एक समय था जब पलायन के चलते कोरोना का मुद्दा लोगों के जहन में था लेकिन अब वह मुद्दा नहीं दिख रहा.”   आनंद के मुताबिक मुफ्त में वैक्सीन की घोषणा से अन्य राज्यों में भी एक स्पर्धा बढ़ेगी और वह भी अपने यहां इसे फ्री में देने का ऐलान कर सकते हैं. राजनीतिक    चर्चा में अनु को शामिल करते हुए अतुल कहते हैं, "अगर कोई पार्टी कहे कि हम साफ़ हवा देंगे, लेकिन हवा जैसी चीज़ पर उसका कोई हक़ नहीं है. अगर महामारी जैसी स्थिति है तो इस तरह की चीज़ों का पॉलिटिकल फायदा लेना ठीक है. अगर विपक्ष के ध्यान में यह आता तो वो ऐसा कर सकते थे, लेकिन चुनाव आयोग के कुछ दिशा निर्देश बहुत साफ़ हैं कि किन चीज़ों का इस्तेमाल आप चुनाव में कर सकते हैं और किसका नहीं. आनंद कह रहे हैं कि कोरोना वायरस चुनावीं मुद्दा ही नहीं है. क्या आपको भी ऐसा लगता है?.”   इस पर अनु कहती हैं, "मैं आनंद से कुछ हद तक सहमत हूं. मुझे बीजेपी के मेनिफेस्टो का यह हिस्सा बहुत हास्यास्पद लगा. कुछ दिनों पहले ही प्रधानमंत्री ने देश के नाम संबोधन में कहा था कोरोना वैक्सीन जैसे ही आएगी, देश के हर व्यक्ति के लिए उपलब्ध होगी. क्या बिहार भारत से बाहर है कि वहां के लोगों को वैक्सीन मिलेगी और बाकी देशवासियों को नहीं. जैसा प्रधानमंत्री ने नारा दिया था कि आपदा में अवसर, वैसा ही कुछ बिहार के चुनावों में देखने को मिल रहा है.”    यहां मेघनाथ को चर्चा में शामिल करते हुए अतुल कहते हैं बिहार में रोजगार की बहुत बात की गई. आरजेडी ने कहा 10 लाख नौकरी देंगे और बीजेपी ने कहा 19 लाख रोजगार देंगे. जब लोगों ने सवाल किया कि कैसे 19 लाख रोजगार देंगे तो चालाकी दिखाते हुए उन्होंने कहा हम नौकरी नहीं  देगें, हम लोगों को स्किल डेवलपमेंट करेंगे ताकि लोग खुद ही रोजगार पाने में सक्षम हो जाएंं. 15 साल सरकार में रहने के बावजूद जब उनकी सरकार नौकरी नहीं दे पाई तो अब 19 लाख का वादा करना यानि झूठ की पराकाष्ठा है.”   इस पर मेघनाथ कहते हैं, “तेजस्वी यादव ने कहा 10 लाख सरकारी नौकरी देंगे, वहीं बीजेपी ने यह नहीं बताया की कितनी नौकरी सरकारी होगी. पार्टी ने अपने मेनिफेस्टो में 19 लाख नौकरी देने की जो बात कही वह अलग-अलग क्षेत्रों में काम देने को मिलाकर बताया गया है. सवाल यह हैं कि इतनी बढ़ी मात्रा में सरकारी कर्मचारियों की ज…

Designing logo for the government with Tarun Deep Girdher
Today I have Tarun Deep Girdher on Audiogyan. Tarun is a Activity chairperson at NID. He is passionate about and also teaches Type Design, Typography, Printing Technology, Illustration, Visual Narratives, and Environmental Perception. Tarun's professional projects include socially relevant communication projects, he has deep concerns about inclusive design, disability, gender sensitization, etc. He has designed more than two dozen publications. Apart from such a huge body of work, Tarun has also designed over thirty logos including Right to Information, and None of The Above (NOTA) for the Government of India - and that is the topic of our discussion today. Designing for the government. * What is a logo? How has your definition of a logo changed over time and after designing more than 30 logos for the government? Any milestone logos which changed your perception of what a logo is? * I saw the RTI logo and its guideline document. Can you tell us the process of arriving at the final logo? From brief to final approval? Using Bell Gothic, other language script renditions, the Pantone Blue which you recommended, usage, and overall brand guidelines. * Similarly, can you briefly tell us about the NOTA logo * What is the biggest reason you kept both the logos super simple - Easy to recall, easy to reproduce or thinking of the person lowest in the educational pyramid? * A logo is the simplest way to associate with a brand. Traditionally speaking, it is always simple. What is special while designing for the government? What new dimensions get added? * How sensitive is the government about design? From function to aesthetics? Not just the current government but over all? * I am heavily influenced by the western school of thought - Do your user research, try out MVPs etc... But the actual act of designing most of the time happens solo and then we need teams to execute it. Generally, speaking, design by a community is not recommended. Do you agree and what were the 2 big challenges that you faced while designing for the world's biggest democracy - where everybody had an opinion? * How can students and professionals contribute their skills to government institutions and projects to improve standards of design? * What is one tip/suggestion you would like to give all students and designers who critic on new identities, logo or designs, without understanding the context or constraints?
