as prime minister of India along with his council of ministers the impressive ceremony in the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan was attended by thousands including a phalanx of SAARC heads of government The event was perfectly choreographed with the PMO website going live seconds after Prime Minister Modi took the oath of office The council of ministers is a calibrated mix of those who have featured in older NDA governments and new faces showcasing a heartening representation to women It frames also the new prime minister’s attempt to reach out to his own party after a campaign that focused on his persona and seemed to dwarf other leaders There will soon be greater clarity on the way ministries have been restructured for maximum cohesion At least half a dozen ministries have reportedly had their functions reassessed and allied departments have been grouped together to avoid delay duplication and working at cross-purposes The new council of ministers is an unusually small entity at a mere 44 right now the smallest to take oath in the last 15 years In comparison the previous Manmohan Singh government had 78 To some extent this is simply the difference between a ruling party with an unambiguous majority and a coalition struggling to reward and accommodate allies But it also fits in with Narendra Modi’s stated governing philosophy one that he has repeated through his election campaign At first glance therefore this appears to be a purposeful cabinet streamlined for efficiency With the strong mandate he has and given his position as someone who won the BJP establishment this historic victory Modi has the luxury of choosing the right person for the job rather than being caught in a web of obligations What is difficult to miss is the generational shift the remarkable change that has coursed through the NDA The cabinet committee on security for instance which includes the ministers of defence finance home and external affairs and makes the most critical decisions for the government is composed entirely of first-timers including Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley This lack of experience is also an opportunity The absence of jadedness could potentially infuse a new energy into decision-making Given the weight of vaulting public expectations which the Modi government cannot but be acutely conscious of an agile and coordinated executive that hits the ground

in the city have come under the scanner of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) after civic officials found potential breeding sites for mosquitoes which can cause dengue at these hospitals Preliminary results of an ongoing survey have already found dengue breeding sites at 24 such hospitals across Kasba Peth Aundh Warje Fergusson College Road Parvati Dhankawadi Kothrud and Vishrantwadi While municipal health authorities have refrained from disclosing names of the hospitals they said that warning notices have been issued to the authorities to ensure cleaning and elimination of the breeding sites “During the second round of our survey we will start levying hefty fines if we find any breeding sites” said Dr Kalpana Baliwant in-charge of the insect control department at PMC “Smaller dispensaries will have to take a cue from the action that is underway at large hospitals and ensure that there are no potential mosquito breeding sites on their premises” said Baliwant adding “There are 17 civic run hospitals and 52 outpatient dispensaries run by the PMC Notices were sent to officers after mosquito breeding sites were found at 34 of these places” The PMC also wants to rope in the Indian Medical Association and General Practitioners Association to create awareness about eliminating breeding sites The survey showed that breeding sites were found mainly in the water tank at hospital terraces and discarded plastic buckets said PMC health officials From June 19 till August 10 the insect control department of the PMC has slapped as many as 4759 notices on construction sites private properties and residences; fines to the tune of Rs 18 lakh have been collected during this period “We found a majority of the breeding sites at 11057 private properties” said Baliwant

not allowed to study beyond class 10 Authorities withhold class 10 results for us Government or private jobs are out of question” she says Former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon termed Rohingyas as ‘the world’s most persecuted minority’ These stateless Muslims may constitute up to seven per cent of the total Burmese population – 60 million The Myanmar government continues to deny Rohingyas any legal status or rights insisting that they are ‘Bengalis’ illegally living in Myanmar Bangladesh also refuses to claim them So far an estimated 140000 Rohingyas have been displaced from Myanmar According to the Ministry of Home Affairs there are around 40000 Rohingya Muslims living as refugees in various parts of India Tasmida’s family fled Myanmar in 2002 when one of the earliest bouts of state-sponsored persecution hit Rohingya Muslims Tasmida’s father was imprisoned for about half a year and his boats and papers were confiscated for selling groceries and fish in the neighbouring villages of Myanmar’s Rakhine state On her father’s release the family fled to Bangladesh and made a life living in disguise in a town called Cox’s Bazaar for eight years It is in a local government school here that she completed her early education topping her class annually Education in the Rohingya community has almost always been restricted to men denying women their right to financial independence Express Photo/Oinam Anand In 2012 a fresh bout of anti-Rohingya violence sent hundreds of Rohingya Muslims pouring into Bangladesh for refuge This influx got the Bangladesh government cracking down on refugees raiding homes and jailing those found to be Rohingyas Many refugees are still in jail without legal representation Tasmida’s family thus became double refugees twice displaced – by Myanmar and Bangladesh Her family then took a train to Delhi via Kolkata and sought refuge along with 50 other families in a ghetto in Southeast Delhi’s Kalindi Kunj Tasmida studied for a few years in a study centre at Kanchan Kunj When she insisted on attending junior school at the Bosco Refugee Assistance Project in Jangpura her family disapproved “In our culture women do not venture out My father and I objected to my sister’s wishes” says Mohammad Salim Tasmida’s 32-year-old elder brother who lives with her It was her other brother Ali Johar a 24-year-old college student and an activist promoting women’s education among Rohingyas in India who supported Tasmida and convinced family elders that it is important for “their women to educate themselves inorder to survive in the outside world” Sofia sports a phori the traditional head gear Rohingya women wear She uses the sewing machine she was given by the UN to stitch traditional wear for the women members of the community Express Photo/Oinam Anand The family’s reluctance to sending her out alone turned a blessing in disguise for other girls To accompany her three more girls from the camp were enrolled in her school Now at least 14 Rohingya children from various camps in Delhi study at the open school programme called the National Institute of Open Schooling Like Tasmida several women within the camp have started expressing a desire to learn which appears to be their only ticket to the outside world as well as to gain financial independence Though the men earn roughly Rs 350 a day – making money off driving or working as labourers at construction sites most women in the camp still do not step out to work They however strongly feel the need to work because of the abject poverty that is slowly engulfing them “Back home a working member could feed a family of eight but here the earnings do not even suffice for a family of three” says Tasmida Rohingya children at a study centre in New Delhi Express Photo/Oinam Anand A number of them have been relying on hour-long Hindi tuition classes thrice a week arranged for by the UNHCR because they have very little contact with the cityscape unlike men at work and children at school Ali Johar who heads the Rohingya Refugee Committee (Delhi) under the UNHCR says “Rohingya women are hard working but they are used to working as agricultural workers in Myanmar In Delhi’s urban set up they have not been able to find the same kind of work opportunities And the language barrier is also a problem” Mizan 14 who studies in class nine and was one of the three to step out with Tasmida has inspired her 35-year-old mother Taslima to take up literacy classes too As she scrubs clean a mosquito net by a hand pump she says she will venture out to work when she masters Hindi like her daughter “My Hindi is a little weak I’m taking time picking the language I don’t feel confident enough to go out into the city and interact There are no factories nearby and I do not know the roads either”she says as she scolds seven-year-old Musana who is crooning the Hindi Bollywood number ‘Achha chalta hun’ Taslima at her sewing machine in South Delhi’s Kalindi Kunj Express Photo/Oinam Anand Of late a number of Rohingya women have taken up small jobs to earn a living Four women have joined as sanitation workers in a nearby madrassa at a monthly salary of Rs 5000 Another four have started working as ragpickers and at least five women including Tasmida’s mother Amina run grocery shops along with their husbands “Everything we do has to have a maqsad (goal)” concedes Salim whose wife Fatima Khatoon runs their provisions shop in the evenings resting Salim for the second half of the day Members of the community especially men objected to Fatima operating the business Salim however says that they did not pay heed because they were doing that to secure their childrens’ future The anonymity of these women in the big city has also helped loosen the ties of cultural norms like the hijab “In Myanmar all of us had to sport the hijab Many women don’t wear it here anymore It’s their choice” says Sofia Musana’s middle-aged mother Mizan (14) pores over a book ‘Hindi for Refugees’ She’s one of the few who goes to Bosco with Tasmida Express Photo/Oinam Anand Seeking to better their skills eight women in the ghetto took a two-month sewing course offered by the UN last year They earn Rs 200 for each finished piece of handbag and wall hanging that they make Tasmida alone earned Rs 8000 over three months Tasmida is now 19 Her face lights up as she dons a sequined hijab and a brick-red head scarf as she steps out of her one room shack It is mounted on pillars to raise it above ground-level just like their house structure in Myanmar “I want to be a doctor because no doctor tended to the Rohingyas back home… I will not get married till I become a doctor” she says something unthinkable in a community that is known to marry off their girls at a young age This shift towards education and financial independence for women could also be attributed to the fishing community being reduced to fragmented groups of poor slum dwellers in foreign lands a significant move towards cultural assimilation as also changing conventions for survival “If we were educated back there (Myanmar) we could have raised our voices against the atrocities meted to us” Taslima says as her daughter Mizan readies herself to follow Tasmida’s footsteps “Education is most important for the community at the moment” Tasmida awaits her board exam results on June 9 This is
