contestestrangement of Jats from Muslims The recent spurt in communal conflagrations in Uttar Pradeshespecially in the western part of the statethe so-called Jatlandmust send alarm bells ringing The growing dilution in Hindu-Muslim social interaction is an unfortunate reality todayto which no government seems sensitive Jatland in western UP was a bit of an exception The Jats of western UP had always been socially influential and rich As the population of Muslims grew in the regionthe two shared the riches Collectivelythey made western UP not only agriculturally but also industrially rich With riches came political clout and ambition Chaudhary Charan Singh used to be the undisputed leader of Jatland and had the acumen to hold Muslims close Todaythere is none who could replicate him After Charan Singhs death in 1987there were two claimants to his legacy: Mulayam Singh Yadavwho claimed to be his natural political heirand Ajit Singhhis only son The splitting of that legacy is the root cause of the Jat-Muslim divide today Ajitwho now runs Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD)claimed and strengthened the Jat identitywhereas Mulayamwho heads the Samajwadi Party (SP)struck a chord with Muslims Mulayams becoming chief minister of UP in 1989 gave him the opportunity to do that with the utmost urgencyespecially given the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid issue Since thensuccessive elections in UP have shown Muslims substantially voting for Mulayams party Traditionallythe Jats have had a tendency to overwhelmingly back the RLDwhile Muslims in western UP backed the SP About 486 per cent of Jats voted for the RLD while only 109 per cent voted for the SP in 2007 In 2012447 per cent of Jats voted for the RLD and only 68 per cent for the SP In contrastMuslims largely backed the SP in western UP In 2007464 per cent of Muslims voted SPand 51 per cent voted for the RLD In 2012394 per cent voted for the SP and only 09 per cent for the RLD So the Jat-Muslim divide was always therebut whenever Ajit Singh of the RLD is posited against the SPit sharpens along political lineseven though it still gives the impression of a communal divide The immediate cause of a conflagration is irrelevant; it could be any petty matter The RLD-SP schism also has an economic dimension Both vie for the leadership of the kisans of UP With the rise of the Yadavs as a dominant peasant community across the statethe rich Jat kisans of western UP feared the loss of both economic and political leadership To beat Ajit on his turfcourting Muslims became very important for Mulayam Players like Mayawati have jumped into the contest for Muslim votes and the Congress also makes its own bid So the competition for the Muslim vote is fierce here Consequentlywith a rise in Muslim population in the constituencies of this regionthere has been a decline in the Muslim vote share for the SP It is possible to cite at least three reasons for the growing distance between the Jats and the Muslims Onethere has been a substantial change in the demographic composition of western UP While Muslims constitute about 19 per cent of the population of UPin western UP (SaharanpurMuzaffarnagarBaghpatMeerutGhaziabadGB NagarBulandshahrAligarhBijnorJP NagarMoradabadRampur) they account for a formidable 332 per cent of the population They are notby any stretch of the imaginationa numerical minority herebut they enjoy the benefits accorded to a minority community by the Constitution Twothe fact that they are considered a minority and wooed by all political parties has become a cause for consternation among the Hindusespecially the Jats Threemost importantlythis appears to have led to the substantive empowerment of Muslims in Jatland Their representation from the 12 districts of western UP is 3376 per cent in the state assembly Out of 77 assembly seatsMuslims were elected from 26 seats there in 2012 That has also given them clout in the government and administration One only hopes that Uttar Pradeshs leaders will realise the sensitivity of the web of relationships and restore harmony in the area The writer is with the department of political

appeal of Rabindranath Tagore’s poetry Music director Sachin Deb Barman extensively used Rabindrasangeet in his songs though he had been criticised by a section of people for not acknowledging it every time Another music director in Mumbai who was influenced by Tagore was Rajesh Roshan Besides there were Hemant Kumar and Pankaj Mullick ALSO READ|Remembering Tagore the bard who celebrated life While some Hindi songs are complete Rabindrasangeet from start to finish there are several others that are heavily influenced Here is a list of eight popular Hindi film songs that are based on Tagore songs 1 Nain deewane ek nahi maane… Film: Afsar (1950); Singer: Suraiya; Music: SD Burman Sung by singer-actor Suraiya for 1950 film Afsar the tune of the song is completely lifted from Tagore’s ‘Shedin dujone dulechhinu bone‘ a very popular Bangla romantic number The song was picturised on Suraiya who would usually sing the songs in her films She has sung this Raag Pilu-based composition in her own unique style 2 Pawan chale zor… Film: Zalzala (1952); Singer: KL Saigal; Music: Pankaj Mullick The chorus song with Kundan Lal Saigal as the lead singer was inspired from Tagore’s ‘Khoro bayu boy bege‘ from the Tasher Desh collection The Raag Yaman composition was beautifully used by Pankaj Mullick in the 1952 film Zalzala starring Dev Anand and Geeta Bali Mullick who was credited with popularising Rabindrasangeet among the masses was said to be the first music director to use Tagore songs in films The first film however was a Bengali one 3 Man mera udta jaye badal ke sang… Film: Maa Beta (1962); Singer: Lata Mangeshkar; Music: Hemant Kumar ‘Monomor megher sangi‘ is one of the most popular Tagore songs with a very catchy tune apt to depict a happy mood The tune was used by Hemant Kumar in 1962 film Maa Beta The song is picturised on a young Nirupa Roy 4 Tere mere milan ki ye raina… Film: Abhimaan (1973); Singers: Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar; Music: SD Burman This is unarguably the most famous example of Rabindrasangeet-inspired Hindi film songs Picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri in their evergreen 1973 hit Abhimaan the song is based on Tagore’s ‘Jodi taare nai chini go se ki‘ The very melodious number set in seven-beat Rupak taal has been cleverly used by Burman who only used the tune of the mukhda and not the stanzas The rest of the song is original SD Burman tune which only adds to the beauty of the number 5 Chhukar mere man ko… Film: Yaarana (1981); Singer: Kishore Kumar; Music: Rajesh Roshan Another of the most famous Tagore-inspired songs from Hindi films the first two lines of the song are a direct lift from ‘Tomaar holo shuru aamar holo shaaraa‘ Music director Rajesh Roshan had kept the rest original Sung by evergreen Kishore Kumar and filmed on Amitabh Bachchan in 1981 flick Yaarana the song went on to become of the most hit numbers of all times 6 Koi jaise mere dil ka dar khatkaye… Film: Yugpurush (1998); Singer: Asha Bhosale; Music: Rajesh Roshan Probably the last time Rabindrasangeet was used in a Hindi film in the last millennium this is almost a copy-paste job by Rajesh Roshan for 1998 film Yugpurush starring Nana Patekar and Manisha Koirala Sung by Asha Bhosale and picturised on Ashwini Bhave the original Tagore song was ‘Tumi kemon kore gaan koro a guni‘ 7 Bandhan khula panchhi ura… Film: Yugpurush (1998); Singer: Preeti Uttam; Music: Rajesh Roshan Rajesh Roshan used not one but two Tagore songs in Yugpurush ‘Bandhan khula‘ is a Hindi version of ‘Paagla hawa badol dine‘ from start to finish though the meanings differ 8 Piyu bole piya bole… Film: Parineeta (2005); Singer: Shreya Ghoshal and Sonu Nigam; Music: Shantanu Moitra For this song from Vidya Balan and Saif Ali Khan-starrer

depressed Top News Identifying and treating metabolic deficiencies in individuals suffering from depression can help improve symptoms and also lead to remission in cases where antidepressant medications and therapy does not work says a study Depression is a mood disorder causing a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest It is also one of the most common mental disorders “Unfortunately at least 15 per cent of patients don’t find relief from conventional treatments such as antidepressant medications and psychotherapy” said lead researcher Lisa Pan Professor at University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania US Depression is also the cause of more than two-thirds of suicides that occur annually In some patients medications do not work because of metabolic abnormalities interfering with brain function the researchers said The results indicate that there may be physiological mechanisms underlying depression that can be used to improve the quality of life in patients with this disabling illness The study was inspired by a teenage boy with a history of suicide attempts and long-standing depression “Over a period of years we tried every treatment available to help this patient and yet he still found no relief from his depression symptoms” Pan explained The team discovered that the patient had a cerebrospinal fluid deficiency in biopterin — a protein involved in the synthesis of several brain signalling chemicals called neurotransmitters After receiving an analogue of biopterin to correct the deficiency the patient’s depression symptoms largely disappeared In the new study the team looked for metabolic abnormalities in 33 adolescents and young adults with treatment-resistant depression and 16 healthy individuals Although the specific metabolites effect differed among patients the researchers found that 64 per cent of the patients had a deficiency in neurotransmitter metabolism as compared to none in the healthy individuals In almost all of these patients treating the underlying deficiency improved their depression symptoms and some patients even experienced complete remission “It’s really exciting that we now have another avenue to pursue for patients for whom our currently available treatments have failed This is a potentially transformative finding for certain groups of people with depression” Pan said in the paper
