fast-disappearing strand of political science that seamlessly incorporated history anthropology and political psychology Along with her husband and long-time collaborator Lloyd Rudolph she was the author of seminal books on India and comparative politics including The Modernity of Tradition: Political Development in India and In Pursuit of Lakshmi: The Political Economy of the Indian State Susanne the daughter of a German couple who fled Nazi Germany for the US in 1939 received her PhD from Harvard in 1955 It was at Harvard that she met Lloyd a fellow graduate student They married in 1952 marking the beginning of a scholarly partnership that has few parallels in academia In 1956 the Rudolphs embarked on their first trip to India driving from London to New Delhi in a Land Rover In 2014 Susanne and Lloyd were awarded the Padma Bhushan The Modernity of Tradition published in 1967 was a groundbreaking work that struck a different path from contemporary trends in political science in the study of developing and post-colonial nations In the introduction to the book Susanne and Lloyd wrote: “The myths and realities of Western experience set limits to the social scientific imagination and modernity becomes what we imagine ourselves to be” Instead they argued for according “tradition a higher priority in the study of modernisation than has often been the case in the previous analyses of it” Accordingly the Rudolphs studied three aspects of Indian life and society they believed were adapted to serve the needs of a modernising society: Caste the traditional roots of charisma in the form of Mahatma Gandhi and legal cultures Subsequently the “modernity of tradition” the idea and the phrase influenced several scholars of India The themes in The Modernity of Tradition particularly Gandhi remained life-long concerns of Susanne She not only co-taught with Lloyd a course on Gandhi at the University of Chicago where they spent nearly 40 years beginning in 1964 but also published in 2006 a co-authored volume on Gandhi Postmodern Gandhi and Other Essays Susanne and Lloyd rebelled against the increasing hold of quantitative and mathematical methodology on political science They were active in the “perestroika movement” a loose-knit effort within the American Political Science Association beginning in 2000 that sought to open political science to greater methodological pluralism Susanne and Lloyd lived in India every fourth year for nearly 50 years Much of this time was spent in Jaipur Jaipur and Rajasthan were very special to Susanne and she and Lloyd spent 28 years editing and interpreting Rajput noble Amar Singh’s diaries which ran into 89 bound volumes The result was the edited volume Reversing the Gaze: Amar Singh’s Diary A Colonial Subject’s Narrative of Imperial India published in 2000 They had also authored an earlier book Essays on Rajputana These books were an example of the extraordinary diversity of Susanne’s research interests which ranged from polo to Tamil cinema This diversity is captured in the Rudolphs’ three-volume collection of essays Explaining Indian Democracy: A Fifty Year Perspective 1956-2006 It was not just her scholarship that made Susanne stand out Along with Lloyd she was mentor to a legion of students who have left their mark on the study of India She forged a bond with students that went far beyond the usual teacher-student relationship Many of her students at the University of Chicago including myself fondly remember the post-seminar gatherings at the Rudolphs’ lakeside apartment in Hyde Park where food beer and sparkling conversation flowed freely In recent years Susanne’s physical movements had been hampered by illness But she and Lloyd were present at Rashtrapati Bhavan in 2014 to receive the Padma Bhushan Despite her illness her mind remained razor sharp When I saw her for the last time earlier this year at her home in Oakland California she was keenly interested in the reasons behind the success of the AAP in Delhi She was also involved in editing the letters she had written during her years of research in India One hopes those will be published as a tribute to

Related News There can be many positive side-effects of the Narendra Modi-BJP mandate The electorate has provided the BJP with a free hand in charting India’s economic and social policies Some of the structural changes demanded by the electorate will require deft manoeuvring between the Centre and states or between Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha However the forthcoming budget that is the maiden tax and expenditure policy document is per se only constrained by the imagination thinking and boldness of PM Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley They have only two choices in formulating the budget Either they continue with a little bit of tinkerisation here and a little bit of bandaid there This is the policy followed by every government of India budget with only one exception (February 1997) since the breakthrough 1991 budget Or they decide to chart an intelligent new course in formulating tax and expenditure policies Let us start with some no-brainers Given the state of the economy tax increases are ruled out; equally rationalising of expenditures are ruled in so that the net result is that India embarks on a structural fiscal reduction path a programme that gets India to a Central fiscal deficit of 3 per cent of GDP and a consolidated Centre plus state deficit of around 55 per cent of GDP This will entail a reduction of around 25 to 3 per cent of GDP from the present obscene levels This and the next article will discuss how corporate and personal income taxes can be restructured according to non-bandaid thinking Around the Western world there is heightened concern about rich fat cats increasing their incomes at the expense of everyone else There was the 99 per cent Wall Street movement and now there is economist Thomas Piketty’s recommendation that there be a super fat cats tax The jury is still out on increasing tax rates for wealthy individuals and rich corporations in the West In India the tax-the-rich recommendation has preceded Piketty by at least five years Perhaps we should call it the Sen (Amartya)-NAC-Piketty policy of taxation In India corporations are already taxed at the highest effective rate in the world (An effective tax is simply the ratio of tax paid to income earned The difference between the stated nominal and the actual effective arises because of legal tax deductions) And this sock-it-to-the-rich fat cats policy has had predictable effects High and onerous tax rates have slimmed the Indian corporate sector so much that they are too starved to produce any additional output Industrial output in India has not increased by even one widget over the last three years The 2014-15 Indian effective tax rate of 29 per cent is a full 11 percentage points higher than most of our East Asian competitors and 15 to 20 percentage points higher than competitors in Germany and Sweden The objective of corporate taxation should be threefold — simplicity fairness and broadly revenue-maximising Regarding simplicity there is considerable improvement that can be made First there should be only one tax rate rather than the plethora of corporate tax payments involved (on income dividends surcharge and education) This tax rate should be reduced to 21 per cent (see table) Second there should be only one corporate tax exemption (accelerated depreciation) This simple tax code can help industrial growth to be in the range of 5-10 per cent per year rather than the range of -3 to 3 per cent for the last three years The extra growth and extra compliance can easily recover the lost tax revenue in just two years In sharp contrast the UPA policy towards budget-making was broadly as follows Decide on welfare expenditures as decided by the NAC and the high command Financial markets and ratings agencies decide the fiscal deficit level at the Centre Bureaucrats in the ministry of finance then decide how much to tax But they are constrained by one obstacle — they cannot change tax rates So they work overtime to cook the budget — retrospective tax legislation education cess and surcharges A parallel army of ideological economists then find supporting documents as to why the tax rate should actually be substantially higher Franz Kafka or Joseph Goebbels anyone The UPA-NAC budget math on corporate taxes for 2014-15 is broadly as follows The corporate tax rate is composed of a basic rate of 30 per cent plus a surcharge of 10 per cent (3 per cent tax) and an education cess of 1 per cent Estimated corporate tax collections on the basis of the 30 per cent rate are reported to be close to Rs 405000 crore (or Rs 405 tc) Corporate tax deductions (accelerated depreciation and other special deductions both approximately equal in magnitude) together are estimated to account for about Rs 84 tc The estimated pre-tax corporate income is therefore Rs 1526 tc But wait — the UPA is not done taxing yet Apart from the statutory 30 per cent tax rate there is a tax surcharge of Rs 3240 tc and an education cess of Rs 1310 tc The total tax paid by corporations is therefore Rs 405 tc plus 4550 tc or Rs 45050 tc So the give-away to fat corpcats is only (84-4550) Rs 3850 tc In other words the effective tax rate paid by corporations in India in 2014-15 is the ratio of tax paid (Rs 45050 tc) to income (Rs 1526 tc) or 295 per cent that is by far the highest in the world Note that the effective tax rate is almost identical to the stated 30 per cent rate a feat unmatched in the world and India possibly ever That is the UPA’s gift to the economy and socialism The table documents effective tax rates in different countries and regions circa 2005-09 (and the most recent budget estimate for India) Note the convergence of effective tax rates at 21 per cent The exceptionally low corporate tax countries besides tax-havens are the East Asian economies at 18 per cent Canada (14 per cent) Germany (16 per cent) and Sweden (a super low 10 per cent) Most references to Sweden are that it is an ultra-socialist economy but clearly the Swedes know from where and how to get money for their welfare programmes Their motto seems to be to maximise output and then spend on welfare Contrast that with the old Congress-high command way: maximise welfare payments and then tax the hell out of the “rich” corporations In other words you end up with zero industrial growth for three years no increase in revenues and a bloating fiscal deficit that you try and correct by introducing retrospective taxes Now we have a genuine explanation for Sonianomics and why the Congress got only 44 seats in the just

Congress Party president Sharad Pawar is being perceived across party lines as a recognition to his contribution to social and public life The ruling BJP in the state and the Centre said the award should be perceived beyond the realm of politics Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis tweeted “Heartiest congratulations to Sharad Pawar for Padma Vibhushan” Congratulatory notes poured in from Congress and Shiv Sena leaders too Watch What Else Is Making News: Congress leaders however said such goodwill gestures indirectly impact politics in the state and the Centre arguing that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pawar’s friendship was no secret and both had stated it in public A senior political commentator who has closely followed Pawar’s politics Bharat Kumar Raut said “I believe the award should not be linked to any politics The award is for Pawar’s contribution in the field of agriculture and cooperative sectors Nobody can question the immense work and knowledge of Pawar in these sectors” Pawar who parted ways with Congress to form his own party in 1999 also shared very cordial relations with NDA government during former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s government The NDA had made Pawar the chairman of the National Disaster Management Task Force The BJP leader late Pramod Mahajan also shared good relations with Pawar Notwithstanding the stated aim and objective behind the award a larger question discussed in corridors of power is how will it impact the relations between BJP and NCP ahead A state NCP leader told The Indian Express “Pawar is our guide and inspiration The NCP is a separate party and we would maintain our distance with the BJP We have ideological differences But where the centre and state moot policies which conform to our politics we will always support” After the 2014 Assembly elections the NCP suo motu declared its support to the BJP-led government in Maharashtra However Shiv Sena stepped in to provide the stability to the government which was falling short of 22 seats to reach the half way mark of 144 out of total 288 seats The NCP’s goodwill provides a cushion to the BJP government and keeps the Sena on tenterhooks It is believed that Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’s government has plan B and plan C ready in case Sena pulls out support post BMC polls The BJP which does not have a majority in the Rajya Sabha always finds support from regional forces like NCP and others crucial to fight the Congress Pawar’s network with regional parties across the country can also work to Modi’s advantage on critical

12:00 am Arijit Singh the Punjabi-Bengali singer with a soulful voice and several remarkable songs who has in a few years become the king of Bollywood melodies Express Photo by Sahil Walia Related News In 1976 the legendary Hindi film singer Mukesh died of a heart attack while he was on a concert tour with Lata Mangeshkar in Detroit It is said that when Raj Kapoor learned about Mukesh’s death he broke down in tears “I’ve lost my voice” he said Mukesh was indeed the voice of Raj Kapoor although he also sang for other actors of that time including Dilip Kumar Another singer also gave his voice for Raj Kapoor — Manna Dey sang some of his most famous songs from Shri 420 (Pyar hua ikrar hua) to Chori Chori (Yeh raat bheegi bheegi and Aaja sanam madhur chandini) But the combination of Mukesh’s voice and the music of Shankar Jaikishan usually defined the musical moments in Raj Kapoor’s films From Awara (the title song) to Shri 420 (Mere joota hai Japani) Anari (Sab kuch seekha hamne) and the heartfelt songs of Teesri Kasam (Duniya banane wale and Sajan re jhoot mat bolo) it was Mukesh’s voice that enhanced the narratives built around Raj Kapoor’s characters The Hindi film industry from the 1950s through the 1990s and the early part of the new century repeatedly got singers whose voices were associated with specific actors — songs were an integral part of the films’ narratives However things have changed for Hindi films as songs are now used primarily for promotional purposes and this change has led to some male singers singing for practically every film That is the case with Arijit Singh the 29-year-old Punjabi-Bengali singer with a soulful voice and several remarkable songs who has in a few years become the king of Bollywood melodies “One thing you would have noticed is that there is hardly any lip-syncing now” says Siddharth Mishra RJ for the popular Breakfast Show on Mumbai’s 927 BIG FM radio station “The songs are in the background So it really doesn’t matter who is singing whether it is Arijit or whoever” This is unlike the female playback landscape where there’s still some variety in voices “If you see recent films like Raees Sultan or Dangal the songs are almost always in the background or they play when the last credits roll” Mishra adds “When people are getting up and leaving the theatre that’s when the most popular song from the film comes” More from the world of Entertainment: There are exceptions of course Ranbir Kapoor’s performance in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was appreciated by many Critics fans and even the actor’s father Rishi Kapoor pointed out his skillful lip-syncing in the film for the title song of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Channa mereya (both performed by Arijit Singh) and Bulleya But Karan Johar makes romantic musicals and songs play a critical role in his films In the history of Hindi films male playback singers have often sung for more than one actor The 1950s onwards Mohammed Rafi lent his voice to Dev Anand and Dilip Kumar’s songs Briefly Hemant Kumar also lent his voice to Dev Anand’s characters including the lyrical Yeh raat yeh chandini (Jaal) and Na tum hamein jano (Baat Ek Raat Ki) By the late 1960s and in the 1970s Rafi also sang for Rajesh Khanna in films ranging from Do Raste (Yeh reshmi zulfein) and Mehboob ki Mehndi (Yeh jo chilman hai) This despite the fact that Kishore Kumar was usually considered Khanna’s singing voice Even in a film like Aradhana which took Kumar’s career to another level two songs were sung by Rafi That trend continued in the 1980s with Kishore Kumar singing for Amitabh Bachchan as well In the 1990s singers such as Abhijeet Sonu Nigam Kumar Sanu and Udit Narayan become the voices of Shah Rukh Khan — mostly at different stages of Khan’s career Abhijeet’s songs for Shah Rukh Khan in Yes Boss became huge hits including Main koi aisa geet gaaon and Chaand taare Some of Sonu Nigam’s career best songs are also tied to Shah Rukh including many in the early 2000s — Suraj hua maddham (Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham…) Kal ho naa ho Dheere jalna (Paheli) and the lovely Khamoshiyan gungunane lagi from One 2 Ka 4 a film hardly anyone saw Also read:I am not going anywhere: Arijit Singh At the same time Kumar Sanu also continued his 1990s success by contributing hit songs to Shah Rukh Khan’s films In songs like Do dil mil rahe hain and Meri mehbooba (both from Pardes) Ladki badi anjani hai (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) and Baazigar o baazigar (Baazigar) Sanu sounded like the definitive voice of Shah Rukh Khan There were exceptions though where more than one singer sang for Shah Rukh in the same film In Dil Se two singers sang for Khan — Sukhwinder Singh (Chaiyya chaiyya) and Nigam (Satrangi re) while Udit Narayan’s Ae Ajnabi played in the background Watch:Aaj Jane Ki Zid Na Karo But unlike then in recent years it is hard to find a singer who could be considered the voice of a particular actor Rockstar is a rare instance where AR Rahman and Imtiaz Ali followed the old Hindi film pattern and Mohit Chauhan sang most of the songs for Ranbir Kapoor Now that trend hardly exists In Raees three singers sang for Shah Rukh Khan — Mika Singh (Dhingana) Sukhwinder Singh (Udi udi jaye) and once again Arijit Singh (Zaalima) This change has also come because of the overall outlook towards music by filmmakers and composers “People realise that a fresh voice can elevate the melody and bring a new flavour to a song” says composer and singer Vishal Dadlani “Whereas once experience and familiarity were prized it’s a lot more experimental now and unique textures are being widely appreciated” Arijit Singh’s career took off after the hit songs Tum hi ho (Aashiqui 2) and the haunting Muskurane (Citylights) Mishra feels that a song like Muskurane while beautiful is also generic “It could have been used in any film” he says “It had no connection with the film as such” The film’s director Hansal Mehta says “I almost did not use the song but it was such a lovely melody” Initially Muskurane was sung by Mohammed Irfan whose unplugged version is still on the album But Mehta says Sony Music and the film’s producers felt that Arijit Singh would be a better choice for the final song Suspension of disbelief always played an important role in how audiences accepted playback songs from the time Hindi cinema started as a cinematic representation of musical theatre Today’s audiences easily accept new singers — even those whose voices rarely match the on screen actor Dadlani feels that another change has come over the Hindi film music industry Singers are focusing on just the songs and working with the composers Once upon a time Mukesh would have known that a song he was recording was for Raj Kapoor’s character That is usually not the case now says Dadlani “Arijit sings every song in his unique style rather than tailoring himself to each actor” he says “I’m sure there are many times that he doesn’t even know who the actor is going to be It’s all about him doing his best for the song and for the composer” Watch: Channa Mereya – Ae Dil Hai Mushkil | Karan Johar | Ranbir | Anushka | Pritam | Arijit Singh Arijit’s success should also be attributed to the fact that in addition to being a singer he is also a musician After his attempts to enter the music industry through reality TV shows the singer became an assistant to top composers in the industry — Pritam Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Vishal-Shekhar “He understands the song from the composer’s point of view and delivers both simplicity and complexity as required by the song” Dadlani says “He has the ability and the openness needed to make every recording a genuine collaboration He’s also a really nice guy with no ego That helps” Aseem Chhabra is the author of Shashi Kapoor: The
