that working with the superstar changed them not only as performersbut also as individuals as they now feel more compassionate towards the society “I was never a person who would take interest in politics social issues or current affairs Since I have been working with AK (Aamir Khan) for the last two years not only as an actress for our film ‘Dangal’ but also as an intern his concern and compassion towards society influenced me a lot” said Fatima who plays wrestler Geeta Phogat in the movie “Now I am more well-versed with what is the plight of water in our country how farmers are suffering… That way our outlook has changed towards society” she added Seconding her Sanya who essays wrestler Babita Kumari in the movie said: “Yes that is true Just observing him (Aamir) and knowing his thoughts and opinion on social issues influenced both of us I think it helped us to become better individuals” Aamir is one of the Bollywood superstars who is known for his humanitarian works — whether it is his NGO Paani Foundation to work towards a drought-free Maharashtra or hosting a talk show like “Satyamev Jayate” where he raised issues on social injustice and gave commoners a platform to voice their thoughts Referring to the same Sanya said: “As an actor he gets all the love from the society that he wants to give back through has social works I think that is a big lesson we have learnt that life is not just about solving our personal problems but being compassionate towards society” Fatima added: “Now we know how small actions of every citizen can benefit a larger group of people” Based on the real story of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat who trained his two daughters Geeta and Babita to become wrestling champion Dangal also sends out the social message of gender equality Both Fatima and Sanya not only went through a physical transformation to get under the skin of the character but also chopped their beautiful long hair While asked about how important the hair cut was to get a boyish look or if it was a way to establish gender equality Fatima said: “If you are talking about feminism I do not think look or hair cut has anything to do with an individual’s ideology You can have a boy cut for your convenience and you may not be a feminist” WATCH | Aamir Khan talks about his fears Referring to the film’s story Sanya said: “Since it is a biopic in reality Mahavir chopped their daughter’s hair for the convenience Since wrestling is a body contact game during the game participants pull each other’s hair which is risky and causes injury I think keeping that fact in mind Mahavir chopped his daughters’ hair from the beginning of the training We followed the same in the film” Directed by Nitesh Tiwari the film is releasing on December 23 For all the latest

turnaround in India’s agri-fortunes (Illustration C R Sasikumar) Related News As India celebrates its 68th year of independence it is time to pause and look back at the major challenges we have faced since Independence and how they were overcome as well as at the mistakes and follies we committed so that we don’t repeat them In 1947 undivided India had a population of 390 million But overnight on August 15 India was responsible for the destiny of 330 million people The other 60 million went to Pakistan — 30 million in West Pakistan and another 30 million in East Pakistan now Bangladesh A majority of these 330 million people were rural quite poor illiterate and had a very short life expectancy Gandhi rightly said that India lives in its villages and feeding people well was the biggest challenge to ensure healthy and happy lives for them But we also wanted to transform our society fast develop modern industrial goods and outlook So after a few initial years of absorbing the shock of Partition and stabilising society Jawaharlal Nehru led India on to a socialist path with a mixed economy framework Heavy industrialisation under state ownership was the darling of development policy and a symbol of modernisation For food however India relied on supplies from the United States under Public Law 480 (PL-480) against rupee payments as India did not have much foreign exchange to buy large quantities of food in international markets The folly of this set-up became apparent in the mid-1960s when the US suspended wheat supplies temporarily (due to some political differences) at a time when India was facing back-to-back droughts and the country was literally living from “ship to mouth” But the folly of state-led heavy industrialisation and import substitution which kept India trapped in what the late Raj Krishna called the “Hindu rate of growth” of 35 per cent for decades is still being debated India was quick to learn from its PL-480 mistake and neglect of agriculture It realised that its political freedom could be imperilled if it was not self-reliant in basic food production But all of India’s foreign exchange reserves in the mid-1960s could not buy more than eight million tonnes (mt) of wheat in the international market while it was importing 10 mt under PL-480 So India did not have much of an option but to become self-sufficient in the production of basic staples India imported 18000 tonnes of high yielding varieties (HYV) of wheat from Mexico in 1966 and ushered in the Green Revolution Where does India stand today in terms of its agriculture While the population has grown from 330 million in 1947 to almost 125 billion that is by almost 38 times our wheat production has increased by almost 15 times (from about 65 mt in 1951 to 96 mt in 2014) Rice production has gone up by more than five times (from 206 mt in 1951 to 1065 mt in 2014) maize production by more than 14 times (from 17 mt to 244 mt) milk by eight times (from 17 mt to 137 mt) fish by 12 times and potatoes by 26 times Cotton production has also increased from three million bales in 1951 to 37 million bales in 2014 an increase of more than 12 times India is not only self-sufficient in agriculture but also a net exporter of agri-produce In 2014-15 agri-exports were $38 billion against imports of less than $20 billion During the last three years India has exported a total of 61 mt of cereal nothing short of a wonder for a country that lived from ship to mouth in the mid-1960s Today India is the largest exporter of rice in the world and the second-largest exporter of beef (buffalo meat) and cotton India is the largest producer of milk and the second-largest producer of fruits and vegetables rice wheat and sugarcane This is a matter of great satisfaction and relief for policymakers An idea of the progress made can be gauged by looking at how just the price of onions makes them nervous today Think of what would have happened if there were all-round shortages as in the mid-1960s Whom should we salute for such a turnaround in India’s agri-fortunes Several stakeholders have played a role in achieving this There have been policymakers like C Subramaniam who steered the political debate to import HYV seeds in the mid-1960s despite the massive opposition from left-wing parties in Parliament and ushered in the Green Revolution There are scientists like the late Norman Borlaug who invented these seeds and MS Swaminathan and Atwal the first ones to adapt them to Indian conditions But when Subramaniam was asked whom the credit for the Green Revolution should go to his reply was “to the farmers” who took the risk of adopting new technologies He saluted the Indian farmer India’s milk story is the story of the Milkman of India Verghese Kurien who nurtured the cooperative movement in the country and made Amul (Anand Milk Union Limited) an “utterly-butterly” name in every household There is an important lesson from this grand success of agriculture New technologies (HYV seeds water fertilisers) and innovation in institutional engineering (as in the milk sector) have been the real catalysts of change These seeds can come from outside the country (as was the case with the HYV seeds of wheat and rice and now with Bt cotton seeds from large private-sector companies such as Mahyco Monsanto) or take birth on Indian soil as was the case with Pusa basmati and several hybrids of maize introduced by both multinationals and domestic companies as well as government But it is the farmer-entrepreneur who takes the risk in adopting these seeds and technologies puts in his/ her best efforts and the nation reaps a rich harvest to feed its citizens It is time to salute our farmers for these heroic accomplishments But it is also time to ask what is it that the country has given back to them Are they prosperous and happy There is no doubt that several pockets of peasantry have experienced prosperity but the overall picture as per the latest situation assessment survey is not rosy So the next challenge for all of us is to ensure a smile on their faces as well This calls for a major re-orientation of farm policies It’s time to ring the
