Part of the explanation for the failure of RBI may have to do with its misguided monetarist economic mode That there are plenty of such arcane models floating around can be illustrated with reference to the current debate on the rapid depreciation of the rupeeand what to do about it Some argue that if RBI wants to prevent its currency from depreciatingand/or depreciating so rapidlythen it should increase interest rates This analysis was not even appropriate in a fixed exchange rate worldand that world disappeared fully 40 years ago in 1971 For decades nowcapital flowsand exchange ratesrespond to prospects for economic growth and not to changes in interest rates That some analysts still peddle this snake oil thesis is surprising Monetary management is a complex and sometimes thankless task

Menon who had just returned from Srinagar poured out a stiff drink smiled and exulted: "We have Kashmir The bas.d signed the Act of Accession And now that we have got it we will never let it go" This incident narrated by authors Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre in Freedom at Night should be enough to remind Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of the futility of his dream of seeing Kashmir become part of Pakistan some day "Waiting for the day Kashmir becomes part of Pakistan" Sharif said while celebrating his party’s victory in elections in Pakistan-occupied Jammu and Kashmir Menon the brilliant ICS officer who helped Sardar Patel put hundreds of princely states in India’s basket had prophesied on that fateful October day that India will never let Kashmir go Six decades of futile Pakistani efforts including three wars suggest Sharif’s dream is inspired by a famous Indian TV serial starring Raguvir Yadav Sharif has a long list of people to blame for his unrequited love for the Vale He can for instance blame Mohammad Ali Jinnah who in a fit of madness decided to send tribals from the frontiers to invade Kashmir after the Maharaja denied his request for a vacation in the Valley He can blame the atavistic Pathans who in spite of having the option of invading Srinagar without firing a shot decided to loot Muzzafarabad and rape the nuns of Baramulla giving Indian Army precious time to secure the airport at Srinagar Sharif can blame Cyril Radcliffe too who decided to award Gurdaspur a Muslim majority town to India and thus the only road link to Kashmir Or Sharif can curse the turn of events that allowed Menon to return to Delhi on 26 October with the Instrument of Accession in his pocket Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif Reuters But Kashmir Sharif should be convinced by now would remain where Menon promised while pouring out a celebratory drink on the night Pakistan lost it forever Till Jinnah ordered the tribal invasion of Kashmir misled perhaps by events that led to Junagadh’s integration with India there was a theoretical possibility of the Valley going to Pakistan This was evident from the stance Patel had reportedly taken on the disputes that rose from the decision of Kashmir Junagadh and Hyderabad to not accede to either of the two countries even after 15 August Several scholars have suggested that Patel was willing to consider Pakistan’s claim if it gave up Junagarh and Hyderabad In his book Patel A Life scholar Rajmohan Gandhi reports Patel’s speech at the Bahauddin College in Junagadh where the home minister said: "If Hyderabad does not see the writing on the wall it goes the way Junagadh has gone Pakistan attempted to set off Kashmir against Junagadh When we raised the question of settlement in a democratic way they (Pakistan) at once told us that they would consider it if we applied that policy to Kashmir Our reply was that we would agree to Kashmir if they agreed to Hyderabad" But the moment Jinnah decided to send tribals under the leadership of Major Khurshid Anwar to invade Kashmir and then dispatched his soldiers guised as Pathans to fight the Indian army Pakistan lost the argument and the Valley As Patel used to say possession is 90 per cent of the law Pakistan failed to get anything out of the 1965 war it fought with India In 1972 it signed the Simla accord and agreed to a status-quo and bilateral resolution of the dispute Since then nothing has changed that entitles Sharif to a walk through Srinagar’s Nishat Bagh or drink from the founts of Chashm-e-Shahi Pakistan doesn’t have the military might to split India Its proxy war as history proves lacks the firepower to melt India’s resolve And there is no way India will surrender its rights over Kashmir especially in a global scenario dominated by huge security concerns Islamic terror and China’s rising ambitions of China in the region Allowing a Muslim-majority territory on the northern border to become a hotbed of Chinese Pakistani Afghan and Islamic Stateinterference would be a political disaster The fate of Bangladesh and Pakistan both home to terror has forever ruled out the possibility of another Islamic country in the region?” the ADR

small towns He shrugged off the burden of the coaching manual and created his own style and technique using the power of the wrist inventing new strokes to compensate for his technical deficiencies Against fast bowlers he would step out of the crease to negate the swing and offer the body as a line of defence when they bounced For a team that had lacked a genuine all-rounder since Kapil Dev he was the man to turn to whenever the top-order batsmen failed Under his captaincy Team India became Number One in the ICC Test rankings and even blanked the Australians four-nil a year ago after he set
