Kothari presciently says: “.the question remains whether the new party… provides us with another consensus or is an expression of accumulated protest… which is likely to wither away after a short time in office” This summary observation encompasses the possibility of analysis of the post-Congress polity since 1989 As Kothari suggests that phase went through short-term eruptions of public disappointments Have we finally reached a “new consensus” That would be the single-most important intellectual agenda for political scientists for the coming decade in understanding the final collapse of the Congress But above all Kothari’s analysis of Indian politics will be remembered for its deep engagement with democracy This is evident in both his pre-1975 scholarship and his post-1980 introspections What is common to both is a firm belief not only in something fuzzy called democracy but also in our capacity as a society to chart a democratic path as well as his confidence that India (or any other “new democracy”) does not have to adopt the received models of democracy because just as American — or any other Western — democracy with all its idiosyncrasies is an instance of democracy India’s democracy can also have its own trajectory with all its deficits and faults It was with this confidence that Kothari dealt with the Congress system not as an aberration but just another way of doing politics — and hence “an interesting addition to the present typology of party systems” This confidence was not about his formulation but about India’s democratic politics being another normal way of conducting politics rather than a queer animal in the zoo Apart from the creativity of his conceptual formulations this understated assertion about different expressions of democratic politics sets Kothari apart as India’s political scientist par excellence The writer teaches political science at the Savitribai Phule Pune University For all the latest Opinion News

ago PTI Written by Agencies | Washington | Published: October 28 2010 11:33 am Top News A new study has raised the possibility that taking a liberal stand in politics might be the result of nothing more than carrying a certain gene The study from the University of CaliforniaSan Diegoand Harvard University claimed that ideology is affected not just by social factorsbut also by a dopamine receptor gene called DRD4 By matching genetic information with maps of the subjects’ social networksthe researchers were able to show that people with a specific variant of the DRD4 gene were more likely to be liberal as adultsbut only if they had an active social life in adolescence Lead researcher James H Fowler of UC San Diego and his colleagues hypothesized that people with the novelty-seeking gene variant would be more interested in learning about their friends’ points of view So people with this genetic predisposition who have a greater-than-average number of friends would be exposed to a wider variety of social norms and lifestyleswhich might make them more liberal than average The research team also showed that this held true independent of ethnicityculturesex or age “These findings suggest that political affiliation is not based solely on the kind of social environment people experience” said Fowler “The way forward is to look for replication in different populations and age groups” The study appears in the latest edition of The Journal of Politics For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsHill road in Bandra Mumbai is famous for shopping — throngs of stalls lined in a row on both sides of the road However it had a different feel on 21 July — this Tuesday saw the area filled with loud chants emanating from outside the famous Mehboob Studios This sort of atmosphere is generally witnessed during cricket matches — but this wasn’t a cricket match — this was the Arsenal 2015/16 kit launch organised by Puma It had rained incessantly since morning; trains were delayed and transportation had been affected across the city — but nothing affected the Arsenal fans who had come in numbers to watch their heroes Sol Campbell and Ray Parlour Arsenal legends Ray Parlour and Sol Campbell unveil the 2015/16 home and away kit Puma Campbell and Parlour were members of the Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ — the side which went unbeaten for 49 matches on a trot: from May 2003 to October 2004 — no doubt the duo attracted so many fans — chants of "we love you Arsenal we do We love you Arsenal we do; We love you Arsenal we do; Oooh Arsenal we love you" to "49 49 undefeated; 49 49 I’ll say; 49 49 undefeated playing football the Arsenal way" reverberated in the area It was as if the Emirates had descended in Mumbai — If you believe that India doesn’t have a football culture — then this event would have shattered your belief Broken leg "Doesn’t matter — I have two friends to support me" said a fan What if the boss calls "Doesn’t matter I have switched off the phone since last night" said another What about transport "Doesn’t matter I’ve come down walking" chirped a third Gunner Fanatics truly But more than just a kit launch this event was also a lesson for Indian football (and other sport) clubs on how to increase their fan base and engagement If a club 11505 kms away — playing in a different league and in a different country — can pull off such an event in India then there is every reason to believe that Indian clubs can also make it happen "This is where we come to know the number of fans that Arsenal has got It gives you pleasure and joy to see there are so many of us It shows that there is so much support for the club and we love it" Asawari D’souza a teacher based in Borivili told Firstpost D’souza brought her two kids – 8-yr-old Karan and 9-yr-old Max – to the event in Arsenal jerseys The scenes at the event was a consolidated show of passion: not just for a club but for a game — and this is what I-League and Indian Super League clubs can tap into (the latter already did to much success last season — in terms of stadium attendance) The All India Football Federation should learn too — to create awareness about India’s national matches most of which go unnoticed The ISL is just a season old Clubs are bringing in the stars but they need to create player awareness — especially in the regions where football is not very popular Kerala Kolkata and Goa have tremendous football following and are passionate for their teams — but India is a massive country and for a sport to prosper it needs to spread across the nation Arsenal fans in full flow outside the Mehboob studios in Bandra before the Arsenal kit launch Photo courtesy Jigar Mehta These kind of strategies need to be employed as soon as possible for rapid growth — not only are these marketing events but also allow fans to interact with players And this will bring fans closer to the club (and themselves) and convert them into loyalists That’s the starting point "The good thing about Arsenal is they realise that India is very big fan base for them On some of their social media pages — almost 10 percent of the following is from India — which is fantastic And we’re called a non-footballing country right That’s what the assumption is But that’s proven wrong by Arsenal fans in India" Puma India MD Abhishek Ganguly told Firstpost — Along with the kit launch Puma also organised the first ever live screening of the ‘Invincibles’ documentary — and nearly 2000 Arsenal fans attended the event and the documentary caught their imagination They had arranged special ‘Arsenal branded’ buses from Bangalore and Pune along with accommodation and food for the fans for the event Cricketer Aditya Tare Mumbai captain and Arsenal fan was in attendance too and told Firstpost that these kind of events indeed help in growing the fan base: "Yes (it helps increase the fan base) when you have all the EPL stars coming and with a big fan-base already in India with lots of supporters and football-lovers following the Premier League It’s great for the fans to have these greats who have played for various big clubs and especially for us Arsenal fans to have someone like Sol Campbell and Ray Parlour who have been legends for the club To have them here in Mumbai it’s unbelievable for the fans" Mumbai captain Aditya Tare arrives for the Arsenal Kit launch Photo courtesy Jigar Mehta Of course Arsenal is a 129-year-old club Their matches are beamed throughout the world to hundreds of millions of fans But Mohun Bagan – four time national champions of India and 22-time IFA Shield winners are just four years younger That they’ve failed to capture the imagination of the nation is down to a combination of the lack of broadcast Indian football gets in the country their continental performances and finally a certain lack of commitment of the club to market itself "Arsenal are being very supportive for example the very fact by sending two players from the Invincibles team two legends of this kind of a stature — Sol Campbell and Ray Parlour — shows that Arsenal themselves are very committed to it" adds Ganguly It’s also not just up to the clubs The leagues also have a responsibility to spread the club Late last year Barclays Premier League had conducted live screening of matches in Mumbai and it got a fantastic response with around 20000 people attending the event What these events have showed is that India clearly has a huge football following — and an English super club like Arsenal have realised it and are trying their best to reach out to the fans "Earlier India was not an important market since football as a sport was very native then But in the last two-three years Arsenal has taken great initiative to reach out to us on all possible occasions and try to offer us the best fan experience that is possible" Arsenal Mumbai told Firstpost Arsenal Mumbai is India’s first official football supporters club and has been conducting match screenings in Mumbai Pictures of their weekly meets have gone up on the Emirates lounge at Arsenal’s home stadium They also have special access to tickets of all Arsenal games — in fact many of their members have gone to watch some of the biggest games Arsenal has played in ‘spectacular seats’ "When we started out back in 2006 we used get a crowd of 100-150 passionate gooners But over the years because of our social media activities word of mouth via fans and the official status we now get a crowd over 700 Arsenal fans for our screenings Every season we have had a growth of over 7-8 % in total numbers of new fans" they said There are supporters’ groups of Indian clubs also — Atletico de Kolkata (ISL) and FC Bengaluru (I-League) are especially active on social media The latter has already incorporated a marketing mechanism modeled on clubs like Arsenal and are one of the most ardently followed sides in India — one I-League title in two years has helped their cause — As the fans made it inside the auditorium for the screening chants of "If you hate Tottemhan stand up" and "If you hate Tottenham sit down" went up — and the whole room would react accordingly Parlour and Campbell also joined in with some fun At one point Parlour asked the crowd: "What do you think of Tottenham" Of course the fans said "They are s***" Campbell who received a lot of flak by crossing over from Tottenham to Arsenal rubbed it in by saying "Winning the 2003-04 title at White Hart Lane was the pinnacle of my career unbelievable" The setup replicated the entrance of Emirates Stadium with a tunnel and inspirational quotes from Arsenal players along with photos and defining moments of the Invincibles era on the walls The atmosphere during the screening of the documentary was as if they were watching a live match — ‘oohs’ ‘aahs’ and claps and cheers echoed throughout Some events may work and some may not — but it would be heartening to see Indian sports clubs and franchises take a note and strategise — because at the end of the day?” Meanwhile, were played as a knockout-only tournament between the Top 4 sides from
