including nine gold.hero? Whether he is a Chinese spy or simply a useful idiot in Beijings cyber war with WashingtonSnowden has sharpened the terms of the debate on cyber issues within major nations and between them The ever expanding flows of information in cyberspace and the determination of states to collectprocess and exploit them has raised new questions about the traditional tension between liberty and security within nations While finding a balance between the two imperatives in the information age is quite a challenge even in robust democraciesthe Snowden affair has equal salience for great power relationsespecially between Washington and Beijing That in turn has a host of implications for lesser powers like India For quite some time nowthe US has made a big deal out of Chinese spying in the cyber domain The charges included stealing secrets of the large American corporations and hacking into the US and Western defence establishments Major US media outlets like The New York Times and The Washington Post have had frontpage exclusives on Chinese cyber attacks on US entities Beijingin responsehas been saying that it is not alone and that the US has an even larger cyber espionage programme against China Snowden has now made the point for Beijing Internet freedom has been a major slogan for the US as it charged China and Russia of using cyber control to pursue internal repression and limit personal freedoms Beijing is now relishing the opportunity to accuse America of double standardsand underline the moral equivalence between the two powers POWER PLAY While the Snowden affair is unlikely to end the ideological arguments on freedom and democracy between Washington and Beijingit brings into focus a consequential power play in cyberspace between China and America Washington and Beijing are investing massively in building their cyber capabilitiesboth defensive and offensive Both recognise the centrality of cyberspace for future warfare economicpolitical and military For the moment at leastit is a no-holds-barred contestation At the informal California summit between Presidents Barack Obama and Xi Jinping earlier this monththere was much focus on cyber security issues Reports on the summit said Obama pressed hard on the issuebut Xi was not defensive at all and pushed back While they circle each other in cyberspaceWashington and Beijing might sit downsooner than laterto work out an agreed set of rules for managing their conflict in the new domain This process will be similar to the nuclear arms control negotiations in the Cold War between the US and the erstwhile Soviet Union that defined the terms of mutual deterrence and circumscribed the options for the rest of the worldincluding India INDIAS TASK Delhis response to the Snowden affair has been low-key; rightly so For moral posturing on cyber espionage is not going to get India too far Spying is central to statecraftsince the earliest times Nor was it ever limited to targeting adversaries; spying never excluded friends Only the technological environment has changed There will be much that the Indian security establishment will have to do in coping with the new challenges arising from Sino-American confrontation and possible collaboration in cyberspace Indias ability to influence the new geopolitics of cyberspace will depend entirely on the capabilities it builds While Delhi has apparently been getting its act together on cyber security in recent yearsfew are willing to wager that India is up to speed with America and China The UPA government needs to take Parliament and the public into confidence on how it plans to stay abreast of the global developments in cyber warfare Mere statements that Delhi is doing what it needs to are not reassuring

so Few would doubt that we have wasted our energies in this period Its time for us to do what we ought to be doing Its time for us to unlock our national energy yet again On the economic front we seem to be losing momentum at just the wrong time Over the next 10 yearswe need to create 10 million new jobs every year just to cater to the tsunami of expected entrants in the job market Add to this the challenge of lifting millions of people out of poverty We cannot afford to have an appetite for mediocre growth We need to get back on a high-growth trajectory fast Before talking about turning things aroundlet us first understand how bad the situation is The GDP growth rate of 53 per cent in the last quarter of 2011-12 is the slowest since 2003-04 The industrial output growth is down to 01 per cent a figure that may add to inflationary pressuresgiven the constrained demand-supply situation Rupee valuationssentiments on Dalal Street and evaluations of rating agencies are all heading south Externallya deepening eurozone crisis continues to trouble us Howevernot everything is bad on the economic front India continues to be a high savings and investment country Our investment rate of 35 per cent is still encouraging The FDI inflow of $4685 billion in 2011-12 is higher than the previous highest of $419 billion in 2008-09 Export to GDP ratio has grown steadily at an average of 22 per cent a year since 2004-05 UPA 1 and UPA 2 have sustained an annual growth rate of 82 per cent from 2004-05 to 2011-12 and survived two major global downturnsindicating a model that did work till recently There is no reason why we cant evolve our model to meet the challenges of the future as well On balancewe need to realise that the current slowdown is a challenge but one that can be met Exactly how are we going to do it The need of the hour is for us to act strongly and quickly Let me outline my small wish list for starters OneFDI in multibrand retail stands as a missed opportunity It was aimed at making our distribution systems more efficient and reducing the number of intermediaries in the retail chainthereby providing better prices for farmers and cheaper goods for consumers Todayon the one handwe grapple with stubborn food inflation andon the otherwe let 35-40 per cent of fruit and vegetable produceand nearly 10 per cent of foodgrainsgo to waste due to inefficiencies in the supply chain Across the worldnations have minimised food wastage by encouraging private investment and reforms in supply chains We have the opportunity to cherry-pick models that suit our needssomething the FDI policy was aiming to do Spare a thought for the Indian farmer as wellwhoon an averagenets less than one-third of the total price paid at retail by consumers A World Bank study showed that the average price a farmer receives for horticulture produce is barely 15 per cent of what is paid at retail We need to provide a better deal for farmers Apart from plugging wastages and helping farmersthis key policy intervention is likely to benefit local manufacturers The end consumer will be the biggest beneficiary Yetthe move was a non-starter The question is: did weas a nationevaluate the issue on merit Do we want a more efficient system where everyone wins Or do we want the farmer from Punjab and Uttar Pradesh to dump potatoes while the consumer in Kerala pays dearly for the same Twothe mining sector has become associated with scams and environmental hazards so we have had no hesitation in throwing the baby out with the bathwater pushing it into a negative growthof -27 per cent in 2011 In contrastcountries like South AfricaAustralia and Brazil have become stronger in the midst of recession due to the growth in their mining sectors These nationscoincidentallyare the ones that strove to achieve optimal balance between responsible mining and environmental concerns India has 267 billion tonnes of coal reserves one of the highest in the world still the demand-supply gap is likely to touch 142 MT this yearleading to power units shutting down this summer due to low coal supplyinvestment in power sector drying up and high imports driving up the account deficit When the government tries to fix the situationit is accused of causing windfalls to private and state-owned companies and the word coalgate finds its way into the political lexicon The story does not stop with coal or iron ore In my state Haryanaa stalemate between the courtsministry of environment and forests and the state government has ensured a complete ban on mining of minor minerals (stonegravel etc) since 2010 on account of the environmental clearance policy and its judicial interpretation This means construction material costs three to four times moreleading to the delay or abandonment of critical infrastructure projects like highways and pushing up the cost of building houses Every stalemate like this bleeds our economy bit by bit While it has become fashionable to criticise miningwe need to realise that we cannot have roadspower or housing without controlled mining We need to create transparent policies that strike a balance between mining and environmental concerns We can start by reforming our mining and environment policy framework Threethe law-making process has to be expeditedsince many important legislations are stuck in the pipeline Apart from letting Parliament functionthe Opposition sometimes needs to take a more apolitical view of legislations in the national interest As parliamentarianswe can set the ball rolling by calling an unprecedented long monsoon session to clear most of our pending legislations Imagine the kind of signal that will send out Our people need us to act firmly at this moment Are we ready Fourenact the land acquisition bill The law was brought in to ensure that industry got land without disputes and farmers got a fair price The delay in the passage of a balanced bill has contributed to industrial slowdown since land acquisition for many projects is held up Apart from thesewe need to bring in FDI in civil aviation and privatise Air India so that it does not become a drain on national resources We also need to restart the debate on the rationalisation of labour laws And we need to do so much more While we can blame the governmentsome amount of responsibility for this pervasive negativity lies with each one of us also The lokpal bill should be passed and the corrupt should be in jail But we also need to ration the attention towards cynics and naysayers Lets get our focus back Lets have a good breakfast and get back to work India needs to move on The writer is a Congress [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related
