The Hindu report had quoted an unnamed finance ministry official as saying “During the printing and distribution of notes from the mint to the Reserve Bank’s vaults it is possible someone took a photograph [and posted it] But nobody knew about this decision of demonetization” But even if that is the case there needs to be a thorough independent probe to bring out the truth especially in the context of the ensuing major state elections in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab If the government indeed leaked the information in advance to BJP then the Modi government is facing serious trouble that could undo a major part of the goodwill it earned even among its political enemies with the bold currency crackdown to break the back of fake currency network and address at least a part of the domestic black money problem In an article yesterday Firstpost had raised this point by saying “If someone has strong evidence that the government leaked the operation plan to interested-parties in advance enabling them to take precautions well in advance they should point fingers at the Modi government But questioning the very efficiency of the currency crackdown either shows their ignorance or bias That is not productive criticism” Kejriwal showed promise when he dared to raise a big question with hard evidence on the very honesty of the government in executing a key economic reform but the Delhi CM came to the presser with social media clips and some vague information/allegations Had Kejriwal put his party machinery to use to trace bank transactions involving BJP leaders in the months prior to the currency crackdown or BJP’s alleged link to the network of dalals on the prowl in the currency market to accept the Rs 500/Rs 1000 notes for a commission and announced the findings in the presser the story would have been different Kerjriwal’s other charges such as the difficulties faced by the common man in getting cash for daily needs after the currency ban isn’t anything different from other politicians including Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee have raised Politicians have jumped on to the currency politics since it is something that directly connects with the common man Gandhi’s appearance at the ATM queue and Mamata’s remarks on normal life coming to halt post currency ban shows the politics of currency crackdown Kejirwal’s question is indeed relevant but the fact is that when a major currency crackdown is on to cleanse the system from fake currency and the black money rackets some immediate pain is inevitable That is the price society has to pay for the country to emerge as a stronger economy Fake currencies and black money negates the gains in the formal economy and benefits only the crooks Bank ATMs have started functioning but are running out of money in a few hours because none of the ATMs have the capacity to meet the panic-driven cash demand of the common man When every individual withdraws Rs 2000 whether they need it or not ATMs will run dry within hours hence the commotion It will take a few days before normalcy returns tothe banking world Kejriwal’s demand to roll back the demonetisation exercise is bunkum since there is an urgent need to address the issue of fake currencies and black money in the domestic system It is a much-needed step in the right direction But his allegations need to be probed The key takeaway from the Kejriwal presser is the important question he raised on whether the Narendra Modi-government leaked the information on currency ban to its ‘friends’ and well-wishers This charge however needs a thorough independent probe (Data by Kishor Kadam) By: Express News Service | Pune | Published: April 20 2017 1:51 am Top News A businessman was sentenced to

beat and broke out in a cold sweat when a 14-year-old ninth standard student from Bengaluru took the extreme step of committing suicide after being bullied in a private school van Bullying brings forth a range of emotions among parents of school-going children who have now opened up about the malaise and discuss it with specially appointed counsellors and teachers Often they tell their children to pull up their socks and take care of the matter A child cannot understand that forms of bullying vary: Tearing notebooks pouring water over the school bag or even sticking glue in the hair Beyond the show of strength by the bully — demanding money during the short break from a particularly shy child or a persistent wrestle mania during lunch hours — bullying has got meaner in cybertimes Bullying can make a child lose interest in school and result in low self-esteem depression and yes in extreme cases suicides In 2014 the National Crime Record Bureau reported 50000-60000 youth suicide deaths in a year but going by the Million Death Study (2012) this could be an underestimate Actual numbers may even approach one lakh deaths a year The findings of the Lancet Commission on Adolescent Health and Well-being this year drive home the point that suicide was the leading cause of death among youngsters aged 10-24 in the country: 62960 such deaths were reported in 2013 In “Loss of Hope” a study by the London School of Tropical Hygiene and Medicine and Public Health Foundation of India mental health expert Vikram Patel counters theories about the brain completing most of its development by middle childhood and youth behaviour being “guided by hormones” The fact is that the “front” of the brain matures last as late as the mid-20s and during youth the brain offers major advantages — for example high rates of learning and memory due to plasticity — on the one hand but presents unique vulnerabilities on the other The interaction of adversity especially in the context of social change with the neuro-developmental changes in adolescence leads to mental health problems and suicide Patel concludes Can then there be a change in reducing this toxic environment as the bully is not just bad news for his victims but also for himself Violence can mar the quality of his own life — he is usually a poor team player and can have relationship problems in later years Most schools have installed video cameras and taken measures to curb bullying; several colleges have anti-ragging cells — some though are only on paper The stigma gets worse in rural areas where mental health issues are still taboo For instance a newly started Maharashtra government helpline number had over 2000 calls from the youth in far flung areas in 2015-16 Counselling for irritability anxiety not going to school and parental expectations were just part of the worries of the young The World Health Organisation’s (WHO) 2014 Health for the World’s Adolescents report showed that of the 109 national health policies reviewed 84 per cent made any mention of adolescents Only a quarter discussed mental health Such findings are a wake-up call for not only preventing suicides but picking up issues right at the beginning At the end of the day bullying cannot and should not be tolerated For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBySneha Alexander The number of Bharatiya
