prices stay weak both FII outflows and global growth weakness may persist and the popular stockmarket indices may continue to flash red when the economy is in fact healing (Reuters) Related News Headlines mislead sometimes (some would say at all times) The tyranny of the headline lies in its indispensability despite it being imperfect by design — if a five-word headline for a 1000-word article could contain the same information you wouldn’t need the latter at all Stock market indicators suffer from the same malaise: By blending together the performance of scores of stock prices into one number that everyone can track they provide convenience but at the cost of perfection Most of the time the convenience outweighs the imperfection These are times when the reverse is true Stock prices in theory reflect the future prospects of a company which in turn are linked to the economy Therefore intuitively stockmarket indices like the Nifty and the Sensex are seen as indicators of the robustness of the Indian economy Inferences flow both ways: The Nifty making a new high is taken as a sign that the economy is doing well and similarly if the economy is doing well investors pile into the equity markets expecting stock prices to also do well By this logic the current weakness in the Nifty which is down nearly 7 per cent over the past 12 months has dampened sentiment about the economy This comes at a time when several hard broad-based indicators like oil and auto demand are pointing towards an economic recovery What is driving this divergence between the real economy and stockmarket indices In our view the weakness in stockmarkets in particular of the larger listed stocks is linked to weakness in the global economy This manifests itself in two ways: First through strong business links to global trends among larger companies and second through fund outflows More than half of the revenues of the top 100 listed companies (53 per cent to be precise) are fundamentally unrelated to the domestic economy These consist of metals energy and petrochemical companies whose prices are driven by global demand and supply telecom and auto companies with large global operations exporters of information technology services pharmaceuticals autos and auto components and even capital goods and construction services Even the remaining revenues that are on surface driven by the domestic economy are not immune to global trends A large proportion of these come from banks that are hurt by their exposure to loans given to metal companies which in turn are seeing pressure due to global weakness Then there are the fund outflows Net selling by foreign institutional investors (FIIs) in the past nine months has been the highest on record excluding the period around the global financial crisis In our view this is primarily driven by fiscal problems in oil-exporting economies caused by the precipitous fall in oil prices When oil prices were high these economies (particularly those in West Asia and Scandinavia) were generating large fiscal and current account surpluses which were deployed into equity and bond markets globally Given the then rosy long-term prospects of emerging markets (EMs of which India is also a part) EM funds saw strong inflows and as these were then deployed into various markets India saw strong FII buying as well Now as the oil-exporting economies struggle to balance their budgets they are being forced to pull back funds driving redemption-based selling Further as metal prices have fallen sharply as well the current account deficits of other EM economies like Russia Brazil South Africa and Chile have widened and they are going through a downward adjustment to growth Thus even without the redemption pressure these funds may have seen some outflows As a large part of FII funds in the Indian markets came via EM funds India is seeing outflows too despite economic stability and good growth Taking another approach it becomes clear that the markets and the economy aren’t really disconnected — it’s just that the indices are not representative The market capitalisation of the top 100 stocks (BSE100) has fallen by 5 per cent in the last 12 months whereas for the next 400 stocks (let’s call them the Next400) the aggregate market capitalisation has increased by 9 per cent This is a rarely seen divergence and is explained by both of the reasons mentioned above The larger stocks are more pressured by FII selling as they have higher FII ownership and they also have much higher fundamental linkages to global trends The Next400 stocks are dominated by sectors like consumer discretionary and non-banking finance companies that are less exposed to global trends and better reflect the improvement in the Indian economy They are also less owned by FIIs This likely also explains the pervasive feeling of gloom in the business press which focuses primarily on news coming out of the larger companies and the widespread (and misplaced in our view) disbelief on the level of GDP growth reported by the Central Statistics Office So long as global commodity prices stay weak both FII outflows and global growth weakness may persist and the popular stockmarket indices may continue to flash red when the economy is in fact healing Indeed there is a chance that globally things may become more volatile Weak oil prices are already causing problems in the junk bond market for example The rate hike by the US Federal Reserve last week may not cause much volatility in the near term as almost everyone in the markets was expecting it However this move is likely to further the de-pegging of the Chinese yuan from the US dollar removing one of the few remaining certainties in the global economy — and one must always remember that markets hate uncertainty This divergence will likely reduce over time on both fronts as markets keep evolving Indices regularly shed weaker companies and add stronger ones: Over the next few years as the Indian economy continues to outperform global trends it is likely that they may become more representative of the economy Similarly it is likely that India becomes an “asset class” by itself that is given its idiosyncratic economy global savings may choose India-focused funds rather than investing in India through EM or Asia funds But in the interim the lesson from all of this is that one shouldn’t draw inferences about the strength of the Indian economy from the more popular stockmarket indices The writer is India strategist Credit

institutions into effective tools supporting a broad range of benefits Top News India surpassed China last year to become the world’s fastest-growing large economy But India’s economic footprint given its population still remains small compared to the US the European Union or China It has much to learn from other economies yet must implement solutions that fit its unique circumstances India especially needs an effective long-term regulatory system based on collaboration rather than the current top-down approach Regulations seek desirable outcomes yet are repeatedly used as political tools to push one agenda or another Often regulations fail to consider impacts on jobs and economic growth — or less restrictive alternatives Regulations may be used to protect local markets at the expense of more widely shared prosperity in the future Additionally regulations inevitably result in numerous unintended consequences In today’s hyper-competitive global economy regulations need to be viewed as “weapons” that seek cost-justified social and environmental benefits while improving the economic well-being of most citizens The US maintains sophisticated regulatory regimes designed to achieve policy goals such as reducing carbon emissions or improving workplace safety While such goals are important the regulatory process can be highly problematic confusing and nuanced There are three areas in the US system that could offer India an opportunity to improve its own processes First promulgating regulations is a lengthy and complicated process with input from government industry and the public However the US agencies seldom make meaningful changes in response to such inputs because of biases Towards the original goals and the structure of the proposed rule Neglecting key voices results in much heavier burdens on the industry than might be otherwise realised India’s start-up economy one of the most dynamic in the world is an example where entrepreneurs and investors are wary of cumbersome red tape and ambiguous regulations Many regulations and foreign exchange controls for example make it difficult to access funds and limit investments flows Specifically rules on foreign ownership in Indian companies complicate and delay investments That’s among the reasons many venture capital-backed companies choose to launch outside of India A better approach would be to establish collaborative regulatory advisory committees with members from the private sector and other organisations representing different perspectives These committees would ensure that regulations address appropriate Indian government concerns while stimulating economic activity and investments Second the US regulatory agencies are required to complete impact assessments when issuing significant rules those generally exceeding $100 million Impact assessments should examine the trade-offs for any given regulation and provide an outline for reviews to determine whether goals were accomplished at intended costs Unfortunately agencies sometimes do not use the assessment process as it was intended One major problem is the requirement that the proposing agency conducts its own impact assessment This conflict of interest results in overblown benefits and underestimated costs Not to mention that such agencies are usually not equipped to conduct these analyses India is no exception to this challenge especially in the environmental arena India has an impressive number of environmental regulations Yet the success of these regulations is not always positive or even understood Third overlapping authorities of agencies at various levels has a detrimental influence on businesses often driving up costs This is compounded by a significant information gap between government agencies and companies that must comply Lack of cooperation and review among agencies contributes to regulatory breakdowns In worst-case scenarios this results in economic activity being stymied India’s drug industry is one of the country’s most important economic engines exporting $15 billion annually but WHO estimates that one in five drugs made in India is fake India’s drug regulator has inadequate capabilities and its authority is limited only to new drugs Given its economic importance there must be greater collaboration between the public and private sectors in order to address the areas of concern India is positioned to build its policy institutions into effective tools supporting a broad range of benefits — from improved working conditions and environmental conditions to job creation and economic growth India would benefit from promoting deep collaboration and transparency between government and business in developing regulations looking through the lens of global competitiveness instead of a single-issue perspective Benchmarking global regulatory efforts is another way to better understand the consequences of regulation from a broader perspective

visit to the Jewish nation The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) on Thursday took a decision in this regard at a meeting presided over by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal This is the second renaming of a road approved by the NDMC within a month– and fifth in two years The civic body had renamed Park Street earlier this month after Bangladesh’s founder Sheikh Mujibur Rahman ahead of that country’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s India visit “The Teen Murti Chowk will now be known as ‘Teen Murti Haifa Chowk’ and the Teen Murti Marg will be known as ‘Teen Murti Haifa Marg’ The decision was taken unanimously in today’s council meeting” a senior NDMC official said The Israeli city which these places are being named after was liberated from the Ottoman occupation by Indian soldiers during the First World War Large number of Indian soldiers of the 15th Imperial Service Cavalry Brigade died during the battle and nearly 900 are buried in Israel the official said Modi is likely to visit Israel in July which will be the first by an Indian Prime Minister as the two countries celebrate 25 years of diplomatic relations Every year September 23 is celebrated as Haifa Day in India and Israel as a mark of respect to the soldiers who lost their lives in the battle and to mark the end to 400 years of the Turkish control over the city Demands to rename the two have been made over the past few years by different organisations including the RSS Senior RSS functionary Indresh Kumar had demanded in 2015 that the government acknowledge the role played by the three regiments of the Indian Army in the Battle of Haifa in 1918 According to the Ministry of Culture a “wrong impression” has been built about the Teen Murti Chowk that it has something to do with Mahatma Gandhi “The Teen Murti Chowk was named to mark the role of the three cavalry regiments But no one knows this today The moment people think of the Teen Murti they think of Gandhiji’s monkeys This is a wrong impression that needs to be corrected” it had earlier said In 2015 Aurangzeb Road was renamed as APJ Abdul Kalam Road Race Course Road where the prime minister’s residence is located was renamed as Lok Kalyan Marg last

Images) Related News Why are some people able to master a new skill quickly while others take longer That is because the neural activity in quick learners is different from that in slow learners reveals a study The findings suggest that recruiting unnecessary parts of the brain for a given task — similar to thinking over a problem — plays a critical role in this important difference “It’s useful to think of your brain as housing a very large toolkit” said lead researcher professor Scott Grafton from University of California Santa Barbara “When you start to learn a challenging new skill such as playing a musical instrument your brain uses many different tools in a desperate attempt to produce anything remotely close to music” “With time and practice fewer tools are needed and core motor areas are able to support most of the behaviour” he explained However beyond a certain amount of practice some of these cognitive tools might actually be getting in the way of further learning the researchers found The study participants played a simple game while their brains were scanned with fMRI The technique measures neural activity by tracking the flow of blood in the brain highlighting which regions are involved in a given task Surprisingly the participants who showed decreased neural activity learned the fastest The critical distinction was seen in the frontal cortex and the anterior cingulate cortex — thought to be most critical for executive function “In fact good executive function is necessary for complex tasks but might actually be a hindrance to mastering simple ones” Grafton said Grafton also said that the frontal cortex and the anterior cingulate cortex are among the last brain regions to fully develop in humans which may help explain why children are able to acquire new skills quickly as compared to adults “People who can turn off the communication to these parts of their brain are the quickest in their completion times” said lead author

Malayalam film is a tutorial on how to drink kallu the coconut inflorescence wine with the nauseating scent that Kerala calls its signature alcoholic beverage Sathyan and Prem Nazir Malayalam cinema’s original superstars portray day labourers who head to the nearest kallushaap (toddy bar) to unwind after a hard day’s work “Oroo kuppi moothathu (A bottle each of the strong variety)” Nazir tells the boy at the shop adding “Naakelu vekkan vallathum konduva (Bring something to eat as well)” Sathyan pours the toddy into a glass flicks the dirt off its frothy top and gulps it down in one go spitting out the dregs at the end Without missing a beat he picks up some food and chows it down The procedure is as routine to a seasoned toddy drinker as the smelling swirling and spitting of wine for an oenophile The first stop on the toddy trail in Kochi is Mullapanthal kallushaap situated on the route to Udayamperoor some 10 km from the Vyttila junction in Kochi Arguably Kerala’s most famous toddy bar Mullapanthal offers a slightly more comfortable version of the authentic toddy shop experience The front of the shaap retains the traditional design with its dimly-lit setting and wooden desks and benches The expanded rear section is painted in cheerful yellow and green with plastic chairs and tables A spicy pearl spot curry at the Mullapanthal shop Shaap manager Shanmughan NS known to all here as Ponnan says the toddy industry too was hit hard by the 1996 ban on arrack or country liquor “Until the ban by the Antony government local tipplers consumed both arrack and toddy After the ban everyone moved to Indian-made foreign liquor because it’s stronger than toddy And the younger generation doesn’t care much for dingy toddy shops either” says Ponnan But Mullapanthal shaap is leading a revival of toddy’s popularity among tourists and a young crowd if not with hardcore drinkers Kerala consumes every kind of alcoholic beverage with a side dish of shame and guilt and toddy bars are traditionally exclusively male spaces; few women dare to set foot inside their dingy sweaty interiors But the women sipping toddy at Mullapanthal appear to have missed the memo Today the tourist fascination with toddy has made shaaps like Mullapanthal a safe space for women A female traveller from Bangalore sums it up in her online review of the shaap: “Toddy is a beverage that is not easy for a woman to get her hands on One has to sit in dingy little dens and get stared at constantly so if you’re a female traveller yearning to sip some fresh toddy Mullapanthal Toddy Shop is the place to go” Establishments such as Mullapanthal also market their food making it socially acceptable for women to be seen in the fancier outlets On a Sunday afternoon they’ve turned out in full force with their husbands friends and even toddlers The solo woman traveller is still a rare sight though “Are you coming to the shaap” the security guard asks before showing me a parking spot unable to hide his amusement Women tipple at Mullapanthal’s The most expensive item on the menu at Rs 250 a plate is the star dish — Karimeen pollichathu Radha CK Mullapanthal’s 59-year-old head chef demonstrates the preparation A whole Karimeen (pearl spot fish) is cleaned and marinated after cuts are made along either side to allow the spices to seep in A masala mix of tomatoes and onions is kept ready When a customer orders the dish Radha wraps the masala curry around the fish and packs it tightly in plantain leaf which is quickly fried in hot oil One Karimeen pollichathu ready The light cooking ensures that the taste of the fish is not overpowered by the spice while the plantain leaf packaging lends a unique aroma to the dish The preparation is the perfect accompaniment to a main course of tapioca or puttu All the food at Mullapanthal is prepared on traditional open hearths “The smoke is important for the flavour of the food That’s why we’ve stuck to the old stove” says Radha The cashier Chandra Bose calculates my bill the traditional way too with a piece of chalk on a wooden table Including Rs 100 for a bottle of toddy a meal for two with the Karimeen pollichathu will easily come under Rs 400 If you like a scenic view to go with your kallu and kappa the Nettoor toddy bar is the place to be The shaap is situated by the backwaters right next to a small country boat dock Kerala Tourism’s postcard image of green backwaters blue skies and the craning necks of coconut palms is on display the wind lulling you into a calm swifter than the mildly alcoholic kallu The dish to watch out for here is the beef liver fry costing only about Rs 60 a plate The beef is fried in coconut oil with chunks of sweet coconut and curry leaves balancing out the spices The crab with its slightly sweet flesh stewing in a fiery red gravy is an excellent accompaniment to the tapioca boiled with turmeric A server with Karimeen pollichathu You’ll find a similar crowd at the Kadamakkudy toddy bar situated 10 km from High Court junction in Kochi The single narrow broken-down road in Kadamakkudy will take you to the toddy shop The fish served here is caught locally The price and variety of fish served therefore varies depending on the catch and the daily prices A plate of fish curry averages between Rs 150-200 The Malayalee palate has always received foreign cuisines just as well as the people have welcomed external cultural influences These days a regular meal out for a Keralite involves either a plate of the ubiquitous chicken biryani the Middle Eastern shawarma or the burger But sometimes one simply craves the familiar earthy flavour of tapioca and fresh sardines And that’s when you head to your nearest kallushaap for a nostalgic meal that tastes of the coconut palms and the

plain facts about Whitefield will shock Indians unfamiliar with the geography of Bangalore Related News It is a non-violent protest that could emerge as a trendsetter for civic agitations in India In a throwback to Gandhigiri commuters and residents of the upscale Whitefield suburb of Bangalore are wearing black on Fridays tweeting their complaints to every public figure including the prime minister and making themselves heard and seen to draw the spotlight to the pathetic state of infrastructure in that neighbourhood The “black Friday” protests will stretch across all Fridays in August This past Friday Akhila Deshpande who works for a venture capital firm based in Whitefield wore black and came out on the street with her co-workers “My protest is a way of standing up and being counted” she said The road leading up to her office has been in a state of disrepair for nine months It takes Deshpande three hours to commute from work in Whitefield to her home in the southern Banashankari area on rainy days When she gets out of her office and into the street the pollution and noise are unbearable “Do professionals have to take career decisions based on the problems in Whitefield Does it have to come to that” she asked “1 hour to cover 2 kms I cant take it anymore” tweeted distressed commuter Ashika Sripathi as part of the black Friday protest tweets in mid-August Another affected Twitter user Manu Prasad resorted to humour “Whitefield helps build ‘attention to detail’ as a skillset thanks to waiting in traffic and staring at the same spot” Whitefield is not just another Indian city suburb Some plain facts about Whitefield will shock Indians unfamiliar with the geography of Bangalore These wretched conditions prevail in an area with the highest density of Indian professional elite commuting working and living The place is home to the who’s who of global companies from General Electric to Tesco to SAP to Oracle By some accounts Whitefield generates more revenue in billions of dollars than any neighborhood in any Indian city What brought on the protests “We want it to be a visual reality check to show the country — and the world — how really and truly frustrated people in Whitefield are” said Nitya Ramakrishnan founder of civic non-profit Whitefield Rising a key player in the protest Ramakrishnan says about 800000 commuters pour into Whitefield daily to work for companies based there But the commute is a nightmare because of inadequate road network poor quality roads lack of traffic management and long-delayed metro rail work In past years an active and high-profile group of volunteers has worked with government officials and city authorities to find solutions to Whitefield’s problems So far that has only brought about a few and very superficial changes in the area “What Whitefield needs is transformational change not incremental steps; after deep study we have come up with a set of solutions for the government to consider” said Ramakrishnan Whitefield apart Bangalore’s traffic challenges have gained increasing notoriety over the past few years With the metro rail project advancing at an excruciatingly slow pace the scanty road network and poor public transport system only serve to exacerbate the situation leading to citizens wasting hours stuck in gridlocked traffic Some estimates put such productivity losses at thousands of crores per month Creative local artists have taken to placing life-like anacondas and alligators around potholes to draw attention to the state of the roads So far the only thing coming through is the government’s serious lack of vision in sorting Bangalore’s mounting infrastructure problems In Whitefield this time round citizens say they expect authorities to wake up and ask what can be done “Then we can tell them with all the expertise at our command here are ways to fix the problems” said Ramakrishnan Fortuitously for the agitators the elections to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) the civic authority is merely days away “If the government does not respond Whitefield’s citizens will speak with our votes” she said saritharai@expressindiacom For all the

alive the "tension" over the Kashmir issue adding India had made sustained efforts to create an environment for talks Jaitley also defended an Army officer who had tied a man to a jeep as a human shield against stone-pelters in Kashmir last month saying he must have taken the decision considering the ground realities Asked whether there is a possibility of escalation of the tension between the

Kulbhushan Jadhav by a Pakistani military court "Our army is fully prepared I cannot make public the information I have But I can say that our border and LoC are fully protected The only priority of the army now is to not allow infiltration "We have domination over the LoC and international border and it will continue" he said Jaitley also asserted that India is not adopting a softer approach in dealing with cross border terrorism Asked whether there is lack of coordination between Defence Ministry and armed forces he replied in negative He said the strategic partnership model will boost the domestic defence industry "You cannot go around the world buying military equipment just when they are needed the most" he said The Union Cabinet earlier this week had given a go ahead to the

mandatory for commuters to produce a government issued identity card while purchasing daily passes to check misuse of passes The last three digits of the i-Card will be printed on the daily pass to stop the buyers from handing them out to others after finishing their journey — a phenomenon noticed by the transport body since it slashed the pass price The new system will go into effect from October 15 The PMPML had decided to reduce the price of the daily pass from Rs 70 to Rs 50 to mark the first anniversary of the Rainbow BRT system The experiment was supposed to last only for a fortnight from August 14 to August 31 However it was extended until February 2017 due to encouraging response received from users The daily pass sales have risen over six-fold since rates were slashed While on the one hand the popularity of the passes went up on the other the PMPML also started receiving complaints of passengers misusing the passes Some of the passengers were selling the passes for Rs 20 to 30 to others after they were done with their day’s travel Some conductors employed by the transport body themselves were found indulging in the collection and re-sale of used passes “Taking this into account we decided to sell the passes only after users produced of a government issued identity card The re-sale of the pass can be checked by printing the last three digits of the identity card produced by the user on the daily pass This will stop the re-sale of the pass which is strictly non-transferable” said Subhash Gaikwad of PMPML PMPML had initially planned to implement this scheme from October 11 but had to postpone as changes in the setting of the Electronic Ticket Issuing Machines were pending Despite employing squads and special teams to check the re-sale of the
