photo by Jaipal Singh) Top News Karan Jeet Singh who was found murdered at his home on Saturday had worked at The Indian Express The Times of India and The Tribune KJ as he was better known to Chandigarh’s journalist fraternity was part of the team that designed and brought out Chandigarh Newsline when it first came out in 1997 After news of his murder spread many of his former colleagues in The Indian Express from those years recalled a colleague and friend for his professionalism his immense appetite for work his team spirit and his good taste in music and poetry Nirupama Dutt recalled a headline he gave to one of her reports for CNL “I had gone to a jazz event in Kasuali and it did not take off There was some cold halwa going I had written about all that and I will never forget the headline he gave: Making halwa out of jazz” she said Dutt remembered him as a professional who was “exceptionally good” at his work and encouraging youngsters “He mentored many trainee journalists He had a special talent for that” said Dutt feel an immense sense of loss when I think of his professional talents the gentle soul he was and the brutal manner of his death She said he was fond of Western music and poetry and shared with colleagues many inspiring poems He was also generous “When we women in the office went out with him for a meal or even a cup of tea there was no question about who would pick up the tab he would not let us touch it he was chivalrous in that way” Dutt said KJ was a bachelor and lived with his mother who was also found murdered with him Vipin Pubby former editor of The Indian Express said: “KJ was a thorough professional and exceptionally good at editing He did not just improve the news report by making it grammatically correct but by adding value to the copy As young reporters we wanted him to handle the editing and were confident he would come up with a brilliant headline and a great rewritten intro” Pubby said they had long planned to split a bottle of beer but the day never came Another colleague Virender Kumar recalled that he and KJ had joined The Indian Express together in 1977 “Except for stints when I was posted out we worked together till 1998 when he left The Indian Express He was a workhorse and he could turn out the best both in terms of quality and quantity He was equal to four guys You don’t find such people often He was an extremely bright guy never looked at the watch If he felt his presence was required he would stay as long as he was needed Exceptionally good desk hand and very well read too” said Virender Kumar who was resident editor of the Ahmedabad and Lucknow editions of The Indian Express and senior associate editor in Chandigarh Former colleague Suresh Khatta recalled how KJ once helped him “Many years ago when I was working with KJ I did not have money to buy a scooter KJ helped me financially and told me to pay him back in instalments I still ride that scooter” A J Philip

that some youngsters used to sit in the park adjoining his house and consume alcohol till late night and create nuisance I informed the area police station in-charge and requested him to take necessary action For some days a PCR vehicle also used to be stationed near the park But then it stopped” For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Top NewsUpdated: March 30 2014 11:31 pm It may turn out that a thorough debate on these proposals would eventually recommend the existing draft of the women’s reservation bill But a debate is essential so that whatever method is adopted acquires the legitimacy that only political articulation provides PTI Related News If parties are sincere about the women’s reservation bill why hasn’t there been a minimal debate about its flaws and possibilities The Congress manifesto commits the party to “the enactment of the Women’s Reservation Bill to reserve 33 per cent of all seats in Parliament and state legislative assemblies for women” Other parties are sure to have similar perhaps even more time-bound pledges Those of us who thought that once the bill had in fact cleared one House of Parliament on the watch of the 15th Lok Sabha (in the Rajya Sabha March 2010) and that the 2014 general election would make good on the promise of electing women to at least one-third of the seats in the 16th did of course know we were hanging on to the flimsiest of hopes But now amidst an all-round consensus that women’s voter participation has deepened and an almost all-party support for the bill could the quota finally be a reality If so there has been precious little articulation by incumbent and aspiring MPs and MLAs on how such a quota would be incorporated into the parliamentary framework The bill has been hanging fire for almost 20 years and the fact that there has been practically no nuancing of its text to address simple concerns (by supporters of the bill too) that it may rupture the constituent-representative relationship at the heart of parliamentary democracy has led to strong suspicions that there may be a method here That a poorly drafted bill — it sees a rotation of constituencies reserved for women candidates — itself may be a stalling technique All we have by way of public debate is an old proposal to work around the constituency obstacle by having two-member constituencies In the early years of the Republic — till the Two-Member Constituencies Abolition Act was passed in 1961 and double-member constituencies bifurcated into a reserved and general category seat — in such seats constituents elected one general category candidate and one from the reserved category That is every voter would cast two votes There are arguments for and against the idea mostly against On the plus side it would ensure that at least one-third of elected MPs (or MLAs) are women while limiting the adverse repercussions of the lottery on those who aspire to stand from a particular constituency This would be to the advantage of women candidates too giving them a chance to establish themselves on their own steam The flaws too are evident One if there is a very strong candidate in the fray (and it could be the woman fighting on a reserved ticket too not just the general category person) the others standing against her/ his running mate (party colleague) would have a specific disadvantage That is it allows a contestant to get a headstart on account of a party colleague This is in fact a concern voiced by women’s groups Also given the scattered nature of identified double-member constituencies it would privilege parties that are strong in these seats potentially misrepresenting the mandate There could of course be a proportionally represented addition to the legislature’s strength with women elected by a party list in proportion to the votes/ seats gained by the political party But this would do nothing to change the patriarchal nature of the electoral process More viably political parties could be compelled to give more than 33 per cent of tickets to women say 45 per cent Of course there would be the concern that parties would give weak seats to women But such is the competitive edge needed in our increasingly multi-cornered contests that every nomination often counts It may turn out that a thorough debate on these proposals would eventually recommend the existing draft of the women’s reservation bill But a debate is essential so that whatever method is adopted acquires the legitimacy that only political articulation provides — articulation more meaningfully and responsively made than the set-pieces delivered on the floor of the House tailored to fit in with party whips In fact a new book S Anand’s meticulously annotated edition of BR Ambedkar’s Annihilation of Caste serves to remind how vital were debates on assessing electoral representation during the freedom movement It details the logic behind Ambedkar’s demand for separate electorates and a “double vote” for “Depressed Classes/ Untouchables” in a time-bound manner so that the right to vote enabled social transformation The larger point is that numbers matter but affirmative action has to be about more than numbers Similarly if reservation for women in legislatures is finally guaranteed by the new Lok Sabha — as it hopefully will be — it should be accompanied by legislative deliberation on how to make women’s right to represent most effectively meaningful The writer is a contributing editor for the ‘The Indian Express’ For all the latest
