uncomfortable truths about society says its writer Ghalib Asad Bhopali Bhopali told IANS that while writing the film he never imagined the rustic movie will land in any controversy The trailer of the movie gives a hint of the intimacy and abusive language used in the movie Asked if he had kept the consequences at the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in mind while writing the film Bhopali said: “No The film is the reflection of our society where the character Babu played by Nazaw bhai is a contract killer because he lived through poverty all his childhood Our film deals with some uncomfortable truths of the society it’s nothing titillating” The writer said he researched and met many people in real life to give shape to the story of Babumoshai Bandookbaaz Giving an insight he said “There are people whom we call criminal because of their activity… But what they did is probably not by choice In our film the character said that he killed a man throwing stones because of two bananas as the child was hungry for days… And he learnt to use pistols from other inmates in jail “So you understand what I mean Unfortunately when children took up guns and start getting into crime no one warned them about what they are doing and later they got stuck” According to him none of the criminals he has come across so far feels proud of their work — rather they regret but cannot get out of the vicious cycle that they are in “We have seen one slice of the crime world in Indian cinema which is quite glamorous This story (‘Babumoshai…’) shows another side of that world If you think

Composite Index is one of the premier stock market indices in China like the Bombay Stock Exchange Sensex is in India And it is not having a good time of late Between 20 August 2015 and today the index has fallen by 218 percent On 20 August the stock market opened at 374425 points As of close today it was down to 292729 pointsWorried about stocks Reuters In the aftermath of the financial crisis which started in September 2008 the Chinese government resorted to bubbles to keep the economy growing First there was an infrastructure bubble which was followed by a property bubble and then a stock market bubble Between June 2013 and 12 June 2015 the Shanghai Composite Index rose 1535 percent The government successfully managed to divert a part of around $20 trillion savings into the stock market and pushed it to astronomical levels This was just as the property bubble was starting to burst Since peaking in June 2015 the stock market has fallen by 43 percent wiping off a major portion of the gains (as the old adage goes a 50 percent fall wipes a 100 percent gain) In order to prevent the fall the Chinese government has done many things It has pushed big government financial institutions (or their equivalents of Life Insurance Corporation of India) to buy shares in the stock market Investors who own more than 5 percent of shareholding in any company have been banned from selling these shares for a period of six months Initial public offerings have been banned as well so that investors invest only in the shares that are already listed and this pushes up the stock market Many shares have not been allowed to trade at various points of time as well Further continuing with these measures the People’s Bank of China the Chinese central bank unleashed another round of easy money yesterday It cut the reserve ratio requirement (RRR or what we call cash reserve ratio or CRR in India) by 50 basis points (one basis point is one hundredth of a percentage) to 18 percent for most big banks This cut will be effective as of 6 September 2015 and is expected to add 700 billion yuan (or around $109 billion at today’s exchange rate of one dollar equals 642 yuan) Over and above this the one year deposit and lending rates were cut by 25 basis points to their lowest level ever The idea is to flood the financial system with "easy money" and hope that some of it goes into the stock market and the market rallies all over again The trouble is that Chinese politicians are not democratically elected and in order to appear credible they need to ensure that the Chinese economic growth story continues as it has all these years As John Plender writes in Capitalism: Money Morals and Markets: "Unelected Chinese politicians may put the interests of the Communist Party elite before those of the nations Their legitimacy after all rests chiefly on the continuation of high rates of economic growth" Ensuring that bubbles continue are an important part of this story Any bubble burst will drive down economic growth The economic growth has already fallen from more than 10 percent to around an "official" rate of 7 percent What has helped the Chinese government up until now is the belief among the Chinese that the government can engineer any economic outcome that it wants And it is this belief that has allowed the Chinese government to engineer the economic outcome that it wants Nevertheless in the process it has ended up with big bubbles—be it in the stock market the property market infrastructure or total amount of debt in the financial system The interesting bit is that the Shanghai Composite Index barely responded to yesterday’s decision of the People’s Bank of China to cut the reserve ratio requirement The index fell by 127 percent during the course of the day today Of course if the reserve ratio requirement had not been cut the market would have fallen more The point is that the Chinese over the last one week have discovered that the stock market does not always go where the government wants it to go And it can have a mind of its own The market simply does not keep going up it falls as well The situation is a tad similar to what happened when the erstwhile Soviet Union was just coming out of communism and its people were essentially shocked at encountering a system that functioned according to a completely different set of rules This is best explained by a question that the British economist Paul Seabright was asked by the director of bread production of the city of St Petersburg This gentleman was trying to understand how the new system (which wasn’t like the old system) worked As Felix Martin writes in Money—The Unauthorised Biography the director of bread production asked Seabright "Please understand that we are keen to move toward a market system . but we need to understand how such a system works Tell me for example who is in charge of the supply of bread to the population of London" In this context the point is that the Chinese government would like its people to believe that it is in-charge of the stock market but it seems to be gradually losing control over it And that can’t possibly be a good thing for either the Chinese or the world at large (Vivek Kaul is the author of the Easy Money trilogy He tweets @kaul_vivek) Sydney: More than 45 million men women and children globally are trapped in modern slavery far more than previously thought with two-thirds in the Asia-Pacific a study showed Tuesday The details were revealed in the 2016 Global Slavery Index a research report by the Walk Free Foundation an initiative set up by Australian billionaire mining magnate and philanthropist Andrew Forrest in 2012 to draw attention to the issue It compiled information from 167 countries with 42000 interviews in 53 languages to determine the prevalence of the issue and government responses Representational image AFP It suggested that there were 28 percent more slaves than estimated two years ago a revision reached through better data collection and research methods The report said India had the highest number of people trapped in slavery at 1835 million while North Korea had the highest incidence (437 percent of the population) and the weakest government response Modern slavery refers to situations of exploitation that a person cannot leave because of threats violence coercion abuse of power or deception They may be held in debt bondage on fishing boats against their will as domestic servants or trapped in brothels Some 124 countries have criminalised human trafficking in line with the UN Trafficking Protocol and 96 have developed national action plans to coordinate the government response However Forrest said more robust measures were needed "We call on governments of the top 10 economies of the world to enact laws at least as strong as the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 with a budget and capability to ensure organisations are held to account for modern slavery in their supply chains and to empower independent oversight" he said "I believe in the critical role of leaders in government business and civil society Through our responsible use of power strength of conviction determination and collective will we all can lead the world to end slavery" In terms of absolute numbers Asian countries occupy the top five for people trapped in slavery Behind India was China (339 million) Pakistan (213 million) Bangladesh (153 million) and Uzbekistan (123 million) As a percentage of the population Uzbekistan (397 percent) and Cambodia (165 percent) trailed North Korea which the study said was the only nation in the world that has not explicitly criminalised any form of modern slavery The report also tracked actions and responses to the problem with governments at the forefront including the United States Australia and a host of European nations including Britain Portugal and Norway Those with the weakest action included Iran Hong Kong and China

AGA to oppose ‘untested’ federal involvement at House hearing

A joint statement released by the NBA, MLB and PGA Tour said “there is a need for consistent, nationwide integrity standards to safeguard the sports millions of fans love”.The subcommittee will consider whether further federal oversight is necessary, with states such as New Jersey, Mississippi, West Virginia and Delaware having legalised betting unilaterally since PASPA was repealed.Slane (pictured) told that she will tell House members that the vast majority of Americans support the right of states and tribes to decide on their own betting laws, and that “significant, effective regulatory oversight” is already in place.“My testimony will focus on conveying the extent to which the gaming industry is already a well-regulated industry from the top-down and why states and sovereign tribal nations – not the federal government – are best positioned to regulate and oversee legal sports betting markets,” she said.“Replacing an already proven regulatory regime with a non-existent and untested federal oversight apparatus would be out of step with seven in 10 Americans who think this decision should be left to each state and tribe.“The AGA is unwavering in our commitment to continue a constructive dialogue on sports betting with all stakeholders. I hope to engage in a productive discussion at the hearing with members of the subcommittee and serve as a resource for anyone considering statutory or regulatory policies to govern sports betting.”Nevada regulatory head Harris will also argue for state independence. In an NGCB statement released to, we were told Harris “feels very strongly that the states are in the best position to regulate legalised sports betting.”The highlight of the meeting could well be evidence given by the NFL’s Jocelyn Moore, executive vice-president of communications and public affairs for the NFL, who will give more insight into the attitude of America’s biggest sports league to the roll-out of betting across the country. A traditional opponent of gambling, the NFL has already called on a federal law to be put in place involving a “core regulatory framework” for legalised sports betting.In testimony submitted ahead of the hearing, Moore said: “The absence of a clear and enforceable set of legal standards for sports betting threatens the integrity of our nation’s professional and amateur sporting contests.”The subcommittee hearing, which will commence at 10am EST, is seen as Washington’s first opportunity to fully consider the implications of the repeal of PASPA.“My subcommittee will look at the implications of this SCOTUS ruling and talk about what it means for the integrity of sports as well as what sorts of improper or illicit activities could arise,” said subcommittee chairman Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner.“Ultimately, we want to determine whether or not a basic federal framework is necessary to guide states’ new gambling policies.”center_img Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting US gaming industry prepares for today’s first House hearing since PASPA ruling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AGA to oppose ‘untested’ federal involvement at House hearinglast_img
