bad name It could have worked wonders in a sunny state like Kerala Malayalis have now begun to doubt the bonafides of the sun itself All because one woman and her partner were caught doing bad businessusingamong other thingspolitical connections Going by the parameters of a proper Indian scamthis one is minusculeinvolvingreportedlyless than Rs 10 crore over 3-4 yearswhich is piffleeven for a petty economy like Keralas That could well be the weekly slush intake of notorious government departments like excise and sales tax No public money was involved Some individuals took a routine investment risk on a solar energy project When results were not forthcominga few of them filed police complaints Many did notbecause they were gambling with black money And some got their money back Though Sarita S Nair has been made out to be the kingpinshe is the junior partner in the companyTeam Solar Biju Radhakrishnanthe seniorleaned on her for that extra edge in marketing The few dozen people from various walks of life who invested money in the company include priestshard-nosed businessmen and NRIswhich shows either that the business looked good enoughor it took little for them to part with big money on a sham project If it is just another story of a few gullible people getting swindledhow come Chief Minister Oommen Chandy is about to lose his chair on account of it Thereby hangs a tale of sexpolitics and the media On the one handmedia investigations exposed the close association of a personal assistant of the CM with Team Solaras also Nairs extensive network of political connectionsboth in the ruling party and the opposition On the otherit was the medias perception of Nair as a sex object that gave the case the prominence it received One is tempted to say that if there was no Nairor if her objectification by the media had not met the Malayali oglers benchmarkthe scam would hardly have been news The media went in for shockingly sexist overkill Radhakrishnanthe first accusedwho also faces a murder chargeis hardly in news The media accessed what is said to be over 60000 phone calls made by Nairthe second accused Howeverthe calls of the first accusedthe brains behind the operationhave found no takerseven though they might provide vital information In the hypocrisy of the male bastion that is Keralait is more condemnable to sleep with a woman thansaymurder her Nairs phone calls were projected with the nuance of illicit sex and the politicians who had chit-chatted with her or lent her patronage for dubious or other reasons scurried for cover Then came another bomb: Shalu Menonactor and dance teacherhad connections with Team Solar Politicians including the home ministerwho had extended routine PR patronage to her had to tie themselves into knots to explain themselves The media readied a new candidate for slaughterthe young daughter of a starletfor her alleged association with Team Solar The whole exercise had only one target: Oommen Chandy There is no doubt that Chandy was not sufficiently vigilant about what went on in his office Team Solar used their proximity to Chandys personal assistant to hoodwink at least a few investors Chandy is in a catch 22 His open-door policy and citizen contact programme are his USP A shadow has been cast on them through allegations of Nairs visits to his office Though it is a politically incorrect thing to sayhe is the first performing chief minister Kerala has seen in several decades with all his inherent Congressman-like faults His style of work as a chief minister who is on his toes and ready to meet people face to face has set alarm bells ringing amongst the political class as a wholebecause he is setting a dangerous precedent The bureaucracy is equally upset because he is going over their heads to the people and handing out decisions He has perhaps more enemies within his own party than outside The solar scam is designer-made for them But the CPMwhich must fire the first shotis in a fix If it seeks to replace the Chandy governmentit faces the fatal certainty that VS Achuthanandan will be the new CMwhich would be nothing but pressing the

mysterious coincidences it happens that even as the Supreme Court was ruling last week that it was constitutionally valid to force private schools to reserve 25 per cent of their seats for poor childrenI was trying to exercise this right This was on behalf of someone who is illiterate and poor and in desperate need to get his son into a Delhi school He sought my help because the government school in his neighbourhood had promised to admit his son if he could make a donation of Rs 25000 The story he told me was that the school official who asked him for this donation said he could bring it down to Rs 13000 if he could not pay the full amount When I heard about this bargainingI got suspicious and offered to go to the school with him It was a largefine looking school in the heart of the city filled with the din of children making merry during a midday break Outside the Principals officea small army of anxious parents waited but we managed to fight our way through and I was introduced to the man who had asked for the donation He looked uneasy when I brought up the subject of the bargaining and said nervously that there had been some misunderstanding This was a government schoolhe pointed outso the question of donations did not arise Butthere was a long list of children waiting to be admitted so if there was still a vacancy in the middle of Mayhe would try and do something to help No donation needed My reason for recounting this story is to make the point that the Supreme Courts endorsement of the right to education law will make absolutely no difference Both government and private schools will find ways of admitting only those children whose parents can afford the donations that the law technically makes illegal The children of the poor will continue to be deprived of a good education and it goes without saying that their parents will be too poor to go to court to fight long legal battles for their rights The Right to Education Act is a bad law It was described by Lant Pritchett of Harvards Kennedy School as massively ill-conceived in an interview to this newspaper and Professor Pritchett was not exaggerating The singular achievement of this law will be to increase the powers of petty officials to meddle in the handful of private schools that offeralbeit at a pricea relatively high standard of education What we need is not more official meddling but lessexcept in government schools in which a great deal more meddling is needed to ensure that abysmal standards improve Butthe clever little officials who man the bastions of government in our sadly illiterate land confine their attentions to private schools for reasons that should be obvious So the Indian school system is defined by two characteristics that are probably unique to it Private schools are constantly under siege from inspectors of the most needless kind who can often only be satisfied if a hefty bribe comes their way Andgovernment schools are left to provide standards of education so appalling that most children leave school without being able to read a book I know this from empirical research as I make it a point on my travels to visit as many schools as I can The truth is that even if every private school in this country was diligent about filling its 25 per cent quota for destitute childrenit will make no difference The only way to bring about revolutionary changes in Indian education is if government schools improve in a revolutionary way There is nothing in the RTE that provides for this to happen which is why I agree with Professor Pritchett when he describes the new law as massively ill-conceived.
