learn from sovereign credit rating upgrades is to stay the course on macroeconomic stability (File) Top News Moody’s Investors Service on Thursday raised India’s sovereign credit rating by a notch from “Baa3” to “Baa2” and also revised upwards its outlook for the country from “positive” to “stable” The upgrading by the influential American credit rating agency comes after nearly 13 years during which time India has attracted cumulative foreign direct investment flows of about $ 250 billion and net portfolio investments of over $ 225 billion into its stock and debt markets This period has moreover seen the country grow from a barely $ 620 billion to a $ 23 trillion economy with its official foreign exchange reserves too soaring from some $ 110 billion to almost $ 400 billion The question naturally arises: Why did it take so long to upgrade the ratings on bonds issued by the Indian government which ultimately reflect the strength of its economy Also if foreign investors were willing to pour money into India without bothering much about Moody’s — the other major agency Standard & Poor’s incidentally hasn’t changed its sovereign rating from “BBB-” (lowest investment grade) since January 2007 — how does any upgrade or downgrade matter An upgrade can be helpful at times particularly in the current context The last 4-5 months haven’t been great for the Indian economy with global crude prices climbing from $ 47-48 to $ 60-61 a barrel and the merchandise trade deficit widening to $ 8615 billion during April-October against $ 5449 billion for the same period of last year Industrial growth has also been tepid at 25 per cent year-on-year during April-September while consumer price inflation rose to a seven-month-high of 36 per cent in October Add to these the revenue uncertainties from implementation of the goods and services tax (GST) — compounded by last Friday’s decision to drastically prune the number of items attracting the top 28 per cent rate — and it has made the foreign exchange and bond markets edgy of late Just before the Moody’s upgrade happened yields on 10-year government bonds had gone up from 646 to 706 per cent in the last four months with the rupee also losing over 90 paise to the dollar Moody’s in a sense has helped restore calm just when investors especially in bonds were starting to panic The big lesson India can learn from sovereign credit rating upgrades is to stay the course on macroeconomic stability Concerns on it have been voiced in the past few months with several state governments announcing farm loan waivers and the Centre under pressure to boost growth through fiscal stimulus measures Focus on macro-stability and structural reforms (GST bankruptcy resolution replacing open-ended subsidies with direct benefit transfers etc) will certainly yield gains to the economy in the medium to long term Whether or not it prompts an upgrade by rating agencies should be a secondary consideration For all the latest

The Trials of Shahjahanabad (Delhi) in 1857 Har ek shahr ka peer wa jawan qatl huwa Har ek qabeela wa har khandaan qatl huwa Hare ek ahl e zabaan khush bayaan qatl huwa Garz khulasa yeh hai ke ek jahan qatl huwa (All the young and old of the city were martyred Every tribe every family was martyred Every eloquent sweet-tongued was martyred In short an entire world was martyred) Zahir Dehlvi The Delhi that we know of is a huge sprawling city which has now spilled over onto surrounding areas known as NCR But it wasn’t always so The first known city of Delhi started in the Aravalli hills in the area now known as Mehrauli The area was chosen by the Tomar kings for its strong defensive position As new conquerors and rulers came the city kept shifting till it reached the banks of the river Yamuna under Firoz Shah in 14th century and from there a little further upto Shahjahanabad (Old Delhi) and finally to the area now called Lutyens’ Delhi Each shifting was the result of a change in the old order and in many cases it also meant the meant the dismantling of the old city to build the new one The nobles and courtiers shifted with their ruler the rest of the residents remained if they so wished Till now no pitched battles had been fought in Delhi itself Some changes were the result of decisive battles fought elsewhere or through a coup Then came the first war of independence in 1857 when Indian sepoys of the Bengal Presidency army rose up against their British officers of the East India Company After a four-month long bloody siege of Delhi the British forces were victorious and on September 14 1857 Delhi fell into their hands Residents of the Shahr Panah or city of refuge Shahjahanabad could not quite believe that what had happened though there had been growing evidence in front of their eyes On September 17 when the Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar left the Qila to avoid further bloodshed there was panic in the city On September 20 he was persuaded to surrender and ‘captured’ by Major Hodson who brought him back as as prisoner to Shahjahanabad By then the walled city of Shahjahanabad was almost empty Only those who had sided with the British forces and were assured of safety stayed on As the plaque on the Mutiny Memorial built on the Ridge reads: “On 20th September the city was evacuated of the enemy” Beneath that is another plaque this one by the government of India which says that the “enemy” as named above were “those who rose against the colonial rule and fought bravely for liberation in 1857” The memorial is now called Ajitgarh Zahir Dehlvi was an eye witness of the events of 1857 in Delhi After the fall of Delhi he describes the chaos as residents fled from the three gates of the walled city to fnd refuge wherever they could Ghalib stayed on because the street in which he lived was inhabited by employees of the Raja of Patiala who had sided with the British in quelling the ‘mutiny’ Not everyone was so fortunate Maulvi Mohammad Baqar who had run the newspaper ‘Dehli Urdu Akhbar’ exhorting Hindus and Muslims to hang together in the face of a common enemy was shot on December 16 Ghalib’s contemporary and Persian scholar Maulvi Imam Baksh Sehbai along with many others of his locality in Kucha Chelan were massacred a few days later As Zahir Dehlvi writes: “I have heard that 1400 men from this mohalla were arrested and taken to the river from the Rajghat Darwaza There guns bombarded them and the corpses were thrown in the river The women ran out of their houses with their children and jumped into wells The wells of Kucha Chela’n were full of dead bodies” Though both Hindus and Muslims upper and lower castes fought in the First War of Independence the wrath of the British Empire fell on the Muslims This was because the ‘rebels’ fought under the banner of the Mughal Emperor; moreover many of the local leaders were Muslims Another factor is that the flag of revolt was raised first by the cavalry of the Bengal army which consisted mainly of Muslims The infantry which was composed mainly of upper caste Hindus joined in later It was thus perceived as a “Mohammedan conspiracy making capital of Hindu grievances” The Mughal king after a travesty of a trial was exiled to Rangoon (then part of British India) for sedition against his own empire Most of the royal princes and princesses were either killed or died while trying to escape or spent their lives in ignominy and poverty The Red Fort was turned into a British army camp As many as 80% of the buildings inside the Red Fort were demolished to give way to ugly barracks The ones which remained were stripped of their precious stone decorations and defaced New roads were created residences and residents removed to provide easy access to the British army in case of another ‘revolt’ The Jama Masjid was turned into a soldier’s camp by the British with side galleries used as stables The Akbarabadi and Kashmiri Katra mosques were demolished Fatehpuri Masjid was sold to Lal Chunamal who turned it into a godown Zeenat-ul Masajid was turned into a bakery In ‘Dastanbu’ (a diary of the ‘revolt of 1857’) Ghalib writes that the Hindus were given a proclomation of freedom and allowed to re-enter Shahjahanabad in January 1858 but the Muslims were not permitted to enter till a decade or more later By then they were impoverished and their traditional arts and craft had suffered Poets and men of letters left for Hyderabad and Rampur in search of patronage In 1862 the Jama Masjid was returned to the Muslims with many conditions including the right of British officers to continue wearing shoes inside Fatehpuri Masjid was re-bought from Lala Chuna Mal A new class of rich traders led by Lala Chuna Mal emerged who bought the properties of the ousted nobles and prospered The character of Shajahanabad changed The old order gave way to the new But it would take another 14 years in 1876 for Queen Victoria of England to take
