on Manohar Parrikar RSS rebel and Goa Suraksha Manch founder Subhash Velingkar on Thursday said the defence minister is desperate to be back in Goa amid speculations of his possible return as chief minister if BJP secures a fresh mandate in 4 February polls Velingkar whose outfit is fighting the polls in alliance with the Maharashtrawadi Gomantk Party (MGP) and Shiv Sena also accused the RSS leadership of turning a blind eye to ‘misdeeds’ of Parrikar even as he affirmed that he still stood by the basic "principles of the Sangh" The prime target of the MGP-led alliance though not officially declared is the BJP dispensation in Panaji and its architects believe that the combine could poach into the saffron party’s vote bank in the state Subhash Velingkar File photo PTI Last year the RSS "relieved" Velingkar of his responsibilities in the organisation after he launched a fierce attack on the BJP leadership and accusing state government of reneging on promises like giving primacy to regional languages like Konkani and Marathi in eudcation "Parrikar has been failing in Delhi in his job as the defence minister Now he is desperate to return to Goa as CM" Velingkar told PTI "Parrikar is acting as a part-time defence minister All political and administrative reins of Goa are in his hands" he claimed The regional language crusader who floated GSM ahead of the polls also charged Parrikar with "playing against the national and cultural sentiments of Goan people" saying he had gone back on stopping state grants to English medium schools Velingkar-led Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch has been agitating against the state government while demanding mother tongue be made medium of instruction (MOI) and withdrawal of grants to English medium schools "While he was the Opposition leader in Goa in one of his marathon speeches in the assembly which lasted 100 minutes Parrikar had said that if the grant to English medium schools continues Goan culture will be destroyed within five years We have the CD of that speech with us and are showing it to voters" Velingkar said "We are showing what this person has done Parrikar is now famous in Goa as a U-Turn Person" he said He claimed that the RSS leadership is "protecting" Parrikar despite being aware of hi follies "Sangh principles are as they are It is the system which is not performing the role We belong to the Sangh principles which have formed our character" he said "I don’t call Parrikar a Sangh ‘karyakarta’ The real Sangh karyakarta should be true to the culture and to the mother tongue and to the promises made to people" Velingkar said On reports that he may disband his outfit after the polls and return to the Sangh he said "We are basically RSS people It is not that you join the RSS by applying It is a mental state of mind We belong to RSS We don’t mind going to the shakhas We feel that we have been relieved (by the RSS) for this great work" "The Sangh has taught us to stand by ‘siddhant’ (principles) at all costs" he said Asked if anyone from the top RSS leadership had tried to dissuade him from taking on Parrikar Velingkar said "That was done Inducements also offered through some acting on behalf of Parrikar He claimed that a proposal came in the form of offer of funds to erect new buildings for the schools run by his outfit He also alleged that coercive tactics too were resorted to by his detractors to dissuade him from carrying on with his campaign "The top leaders of BJP in Goa are interested in scuttling Parsekar’s chances of becoming chief minister again by ensuring that he is defeated in his Assembly constituency" Velingkar claimed They will help the opposition to get Parsekar defeated" he said Velingkar alleged Parrikar had promised three candidates that he will make them deputy chief minister "Our internal survey indicates that our alliance will get 22 seats meaning a clear majority in the 40-member House The BJP won’t get more than five There is also anti-incumbency" he said "Congress will get less seats than it got in 2012 polls AAP has some pockets in south Goa among the Christian community They don’t have any support among the Hindu voters" he said The Parrikar-led BJP government after coming to power in 2012 had refused to stop funding to private primary schools in which the medium of instruction is English rather than Konkani or Marathi thereby violating the pre-poll promise to voters claimed Velingkar In 2012 the then ruling Congress party had overturned a two-decade old policy and extended state funding to private English language primary schools The decision had found support among parents who wanted to educate their children in English but was condemned by opposition parties and native language associations organised under Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch "Parrikar had promised to reverse the decision if BJP won the 2012 polls However in 2013 the BJP government declared it would continue to support 139 English-language primary schools" he said Washington: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Monday spoke with Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma

grew so did adultery Divorce rose from 341000 in 1980 to 22 million in 2013 Behaviour change comes in two ways: at the basic level enterprises follow the same route avoiding product obsolescence and as I wrote last week the unique way of making incredible difference as Gillette Sony Walkman and Apple among others did However prominent indicators that change behaviour are culture food and ergonomics Culture: Nowhere is culture changing behaviour more visible than in China When Deng Xiaoping led the country after Mao Zedong he introduced reforms from 1978 with his slogan of “To get rich is glorious” This inspired private enterprises to grow He de-collectivised communes shifting to the household responsibility system making millions of peasants return to family farming Village and town industries responded to the market Shenzhen a little village near Hong Kong became an SEZ in 1979; today it’s the world’s largest manufacturing hub Opening up to international trade made Western influences enter politics culture the economy challenging official values and moving beyond urban to rural areas Dramatic culture change included family woes like broken homes As incomes grew so did adultery Divorce rose from 341000 in 1980 to 22 million in 2013 Suspicious wives are resorting to private detectives who use secretive measures like attaching GPS trackers to their suspects’ cars or monitoring their calls Such spying services are illegal but continue as privately collected evidence has been permitted in civil law suits So traditional Chinese culture is undergoing changes akin to capitalistic societies Cultural attributes that change behaviour are basic functioning of day-to-day family life health education economic conditions lifestyle and livelihood generation Religion is not a part of it unless the society is monatomic with one religion driving the socio-eco-political spectrum Culture started before religion or civilisation when people discovered how to make fire find food for survival or draw cave pictures It’s evident that materialism brings behavioural change Take material comforts our godmen enjoy like airconditioned rooms and cars first or business class air travel instead of meditation under the trees Their disciples may have thrust these comforts upon them but it’s obvious these disciples have managed to change the habits of godmen What’s radically changed India’s working culture is the global IT servicing industry that brings in about $80 billion every year Young boys and girls work together at call centres At age 18 in their first job after school these youngsters can earn up to Rs 18000 per month whereas if their father was a simple worker he’d be earning that amount perhaps after 25 years So father-child cultural behaviour cannot be the same News stories abound about condoms clogging call centre drains and employees being counseled because their speech has become American English odd working hours make them miss all family functions and social contact outside office Even the behaviour of pre-industrialised Americans was not altered so diametrically when they entered the post-industrial era Food: Food is the behaviour changer for immigrant children who pick up the new country’s eating routine although their parents may take time to change But when food is designed with strong universal appeal it can change behaviour The world’s mass-level people can never accept French-style rare mincemeat beefsteak but a well-done beef patty covered with salad cheese and sauce within a bun becomes the familiar favoured McDonald’s Change beef to chicken it even works with heterogeneous Indians with heterogeneous food habits The Chinese devour burgers too abandoning their centuries-old noodles habit Packaged food companies have remarkably turned people from handmade to readymade food Without laborious work you just microwave an enjoyable dinner of varied dishes Ergonomics: Physical instruments that humans touch for playing working or entertaining can disruptively change behaviour Before Thomas Edison there was no repeated listening to music sound or voice The gramophone entirely modified our approach to entertainment After Graham Bell’s invention of telephone our primary communication style changed from using the pigeon horse rider or cycling postman as messenger People held two instruments with both hands to talk and listen; then landline phones became one instrument; now the mobile phone is a single device you keep in your pocket This behaviour-changing evolution spans the mechanical electric electronic to the digi-tech age Children’s physical attachment to Barbie Lego or Mechano sets has shifted to digitally driven games If as a product designer you don’t follow children’s changing behaviour with games or the education system you won’t be designing any saleable instrument for work play or entertainment tomorrow I’ve seen my nine-year-old granddaughter Sreeya who lives in London return from school at 4 pm then rush to the computer at a pre-fixed time to work online on mathematics with her classmates for the next day’s test Their regular practice is to connect to the Internet for doing school homework together Just imagine how digi-tech is changing children’s behaviour Sreeya often takes up a challenge against any child who’s online anywhere in the world Even at office digi-tech is infusing every domain with radical transformation from HR recruitment to production to supply chain The way we worked 10 years ago is not the same now but our attitude in certain areas will never change Fashion is cyclic something new comes vanishes returns and we knowingly ride that cycle happily Whether you’re an entrepreneur politician or philosopher try enlisting culture
