Published: October 31 2017 3:23 am The chief minister said steps had been taken to ensure genuine farmers benefit from the loan waiver Express File Related News The move of the state government to adopt the digital process for the farm loan waiver has unearthed ghost accounts in financial institutions across Maharashtra So far 135 lakh ghost accounts have come to light according to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis “At present we have data to substantiate 135 lakh ghost accounts that were operational in various banks across Maharashtra It is shocking and a serious cause of concern” the chief minister told The Indian Express “The State Level Bankers’ Committee (SLBC) had provided the first list of 89 lakh farmers for the loan waiver After four months the revised list of the SLBC shows a drop of 135 lakh accounts Which means the final tally of loan waiver to eligible farmers across the state will not be 89 lakh If we deduct the 135 lakh ghost accounts the tally will come down to around 75 lakh farmers” he added The chief minister citing examples to show discrepancies in the working of financial institutions said “Take the case of the Union Bank In the first list the number of loan accounts of farmers was 648 lakh In the revised list which was subjected to scrutiny the number declined to 134 lakh” The discrepancies stretched in varying degrees across national district and commercial banks he said Fadnavis said that steps have been taken to ensure that the loan waiver disbursement is not hampered and genuine farmers get their dues “The IT department will coordinate with banks to streamline the process and ensure each and every farmer gets the loan waiver” he said Justifying the online process for loan waiver and three-tier validation the chief minister said “The larger objective of the entire exercise is to provide funds to truly deserving farmers” Denying that there has been a delay in disbursement of loan waiver he said “The official announcement was in the month of July And the first phase of loan disbursement of Rs 4000 crore for 840 lakh farmers was deposited in banks in October However discrepancies led to further validation” Terming the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Shetkari Sanmaan Yojana as historic the chief minister said “The loan waiver is upto Rs 15 lakh irrespective of the size of land holding Even those who have not defaulted have been provided an incentive of Rs 25000” Enumerating other measures taken to benefit farmers Fadnavis said “For the first time we have adopted the online process for procurement of soyabean and cotton from farmers This will help check corruption and human manipulations and help deserving farmers” The purchase centres have already started functioning Promising more reforms to make agriculture sustainable and double the farmers’ income he said “The investment in 2017-18 was the highest at Rs 73440 crore A year ago (2016-17) the investment was Rs 56576 crore” The turnaround from negative (-4 per cent) growth to positive (+125 per cent) growth in just three years in the agriculture and allied sectors corroborates this he said The government spent Rs 1734 crore to provide power connections to 138234

she repeated what she had learnt It was sadhana (Illustration by – C R Sasikumar) Top News My first encounter with Kishori Amonkar was through an HMV tape I had won as a 13-year-old My father a banker had recently been posted to Chandigarh and my new school decided to give me a “nightingale award” I “knew” precisely four ragas and could do a 15-minute performance I was even keen on learning a fifth and more because there were shiny trophies applause and awe (itni lambi taan kaise yaad rakhti hai) For my mother a one-time sitar player this was a moment of glory It was an exciting time I thought I was ready to be famous Then Kishori Amonkar happened The award besides a trophy included two tapes One by Lata Mangeshkar and the other by Amonkar The first name I knew The second I had never heard of In a house where classical music was played daily where stories of Ravi Shankar Vilayat Khan and Girija Devi were the talk of evening soirees Amonkar had somehow never featured Then there was the matter of popular television While most significant musicians of the country including Amjad Ali Khan Ravi Shankar Allah Rakha and Lata Mangeshkar among others made it to Lok Sewa Sanchar Parishad’s Mile Sur and Desh Raag — the eminently hummable television anthems on a tableau of nationalism — Amonkar was not to be spotted She was not on TV radio and certainly not in newspapers Also Read | The loneliness of Kishori Amonkar The reason I figured many years later as a music correspondent for both was one — her approach to music In the 1990s with cable TV in place and a world of manic advertisement musicians making their music global and approachable were becoming the mark of popularity even brilliance Good money was being paid for concerts Amonkar though wouldn’t do more than four shows a month even at the prime of her career She also didn’t enjoy travelling abroad Instead she sat in a tiny music room in her Prabhadevi apartment in Mumbai bent over her swarmandal and sang the riyaaz stretching to 8-10 hours a day When I stuck that prized HMV tape into my father’s black Philips radio-cum-casette player there was the trademark clonk of a new cassette set to play on the machine And there it was Amonkar’s famed Jaunpuri A sharp alaap that began in taar saptak came to madhya saptak effortlessly and merged into the bandish Baaje Jhanjhana I knew this raga it was one of the “big four” I had trained in But this was different Not only was this another bandish the oscillation of gandhar and dhaivat was from another world: The slides the way they came to the sam from various corners always landing perfectly This was mesmerising stuff Through the delineation of this raga Amonkar was opening possibilities I didn’t know existed in Hindustani classical music Later I realised that most people training in and trained in the form thought the same The next day excited by my interest my mother decided to find me a guru She settled on Swati Rai of the Banaras gharana Swati ma told me Amonkar’s technique was her own which is why it was hard to box her in a gharana Amonkar didn’t believe in the concept of gharanas and took the best possible musical ideas from the various people she had learnt from — Anwar Hussain Khan of the Agra gharana Anjanibai Malpekar of Bhendi Bazar gharana Sharadchandra Arolkar of Gwalior gharana and Goa’s stalwart Balkrishnabuwa Parwatkar This led her to create an inimitable style one that could challenge the audience the critics and more importantly herself Amonkar’s music wasn’t a practice where she repeated what she had learnt It was sadhana where she took what she had learnt and through it looked for a route to divinity “Sadhana makes you see one step ahead and move further You have to walk and run on your own The guru gives you strength to be able to do that If you don’t then you remain ordinary My mother made sure I wasn’t ordinary” she said in one of her last interviews to me I also found out later that she did fewer concerts on the advice of her mother the iconic Mogubai Kurdikar of the Jaipur Atrauli gharana A young Amonkar was once keen on doing eight concerts in a month and Kurdikar screeched “when will you do your riyaaz” Amonkar was 36 and at the prime of her career “I never dared to question my mother” she would say Last year in October when she agreed to speak to me for an interview after her concert at Nehru Park I thought finally this was it After I arrived at her hotel and stood outside her door she said “I am tired now Tell her to come home if she wants to talk” Disappointed I latched on to the second part of her sentence and reached her third-floor apartment in Mumbai’s Prabhadevi in December She was not expecting this She agreed to meet with me Amonkar was perched on an intricately carved swing and sat there smiling Like a typical journalist I thought I had my foot in the door And then the tables turned “I appreciate that you are here But I need to know how much you know about music So tell me what do you know” Dumbfounded I managed some response on the lines of learning notes and not the ragas After 30 minutes of a gruelling session where she would react sharply at my incorrect answers with a silent glare and an “arre wah” when she agreed with me our conversation began For the next three hours I sat at her feet as a student of music and next to her as a journalist as she went on to weave her life’s stories with notes — the ones she considered living entities She spoke of her reverence for her mother her deference due only to her music and laid bare her soul The fondness with which she spoke of shrutis (micronotes) which according to her would evoke a gamut of emotions was a happy maze in which one could get lost “I have never cared about what critics say I do care if my audience is transported into a reverie For that I have to sit alone and practice Loneliness is an artiste’s virtue” she said At the time she was also excited about her granddaughter Tejashree Amonkar’s upcoming wedding in February Tejashree accompanied Amonkar often at her concerts as a backing vocalist “I will do all the laad at her wedding I do it all the time when she is not learning But the moment she sits in my class I don’t allow mistakes I am not her grandmother then” she said I left that apartment in a strange reverie that day I called my mother from the taxi and told her that I was glad that she thought of getting me a guru To understand a bit of music made me capable of understanding her world in all its depth Kishori Amonkar passed away on Monday night in her sleep She was healthy and performing till last week and teaching till two days before her death Befitting as she couldn’t tolerate being bed-ridden or letting anyone see her in distress Her life Her music Her dying These aren’t just stages in an individual’s life They mark the gold standard of musical genius As my interview with her was ending just before I was to leave the conversation veered to the end of a generation of classical singers She thought for a moment and said “Beta main chali jaungi toh chaar kandhe pe le jaakar jalaa denge dekhna Yeh sangeet hi reh jayega yaad karne ke liye” (I will die and be cremated The music is all I will be remembered by) [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top News Amid windy,” says
