version keeps reappearing In this versiongiven the age structure of the population and the fertility and mortality ratesthe Indian population expands to around a 14 billion stable equilibrium towards the middle of the century It would also be a younger population One worker would support more than four-and-a-half retirees in Indiaas compared to almost 1:1 in countries like Japan China and the US would also have a disadvantage This would mean both higher savings and a very great expansion of demand emerging from a dynamically growing system Income growth would also be higher Some of it would happen to the extent to which the workforce grows faster than population This difference would automatically mean a higher increase in per capita income But a lot of the growth depends on assumptions The savings rate hadfor exampleincreased even when the workforce growth rate was not higher and so a simple correlation seems incorrect More important is the higher participation of women in the workforceemerging from an increase in the age at marriage and decrease in the age of having the last baby But again in a patriarchic societythis is not inevitable More important it is only if you

the constitution of India even though it is a significant slice of history More so since it is assumed that creating a framework of laws principles rights and government duties of a nation lacks the drama and conflicts that preceded the Independence But Shyam Benegal’s Samvidhaan which recently premiered Rajya Sabha TV aims to change that perception The veteran film-maker is a master of political based subjects — be it as films or television as fiction dramas or documented subjects like Bharat Ek Khoj one of India’s earliest television historicals on Doordarshan However there’s been a lacunae since then with an exception being Wodehousian laced humour Ji Mantriji starring Farooque Shaikh However the interest in Indian history has once again revived with Shekhar Kapur’s Pradhanmantri who took a look at the life and times of Prime Ministers of India so far and their role in the modern Indian political ethos Benegal’s Samvidhaan seems to be an extension of the trend has kicked in recently Samvidhaan tracks the origins of the Indian constitution —the conflicts the efforts and brainstorming that went into the three years of its making The series features all events that took place during the making of the constitution between 1946 to 1949 and the people behind the rules clauses and amendments in it A 10-episode series it features prominent actors like Divya Dutta Neeraj Kabi Dalip Tahil Sachin Khedekar Narendra Jha Utkarsh Mazumdar Ila Arun Rajeshwari Sachdev Tom Alter among others in significant roles; popular character actress Swara Bhaskar will be seen as an anchor on the show Ask Benegal the process of bringing together an ensemble like this and he says “It’s not easy If they get accepted that’s my achievement To be able to get into the personality and soul of the character is difficult Also I’ve worked with most of these actors before so I have a certain comfort level with them because of which they agreed to be a part of Samvidhaan” The entire series was shot over a period of three months with nearly a year of research behind it The portions with Bhaskar as the anchor were shot separately after a fortnight of preparations and readings with her Interestingly the show which has subtitles in Hindi and English will also be dubbed in other languages “We are planning to dub the show in many languages but all that work is yet to begin” informs Benegal The biggest challenge for Benegal was to recreate the post-Independence era “Challenges are always there when you’re attempting to recreate an era Moreover since the people behind the constitution were national leaders and icons the biggest challenge was to make these people look like believable Even the dialogues in the series are more or less similar to what was spoken in the constituent assembly A lot of research went into getting that right” explains the National award winning film-makers Rajya Sabha TV which has also produced Samvidhaan along with Shyam Benegal’s Sahyadri Films plans to screen it at schools to help kids have a better understanding of the constitution “People don’t know what is constitutional in our country and what’s not So it’s important to make people aware of it especially kids who are the future of our country” says Gurdeep Singh Sappal CEO and Executive Editor Rajya Sabha TV Looking the part A look at the prominent characters of Samvidhaan and how the actors got it right Dalip Tahil as Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru “I have to say that all the actors had a lot of faith in Mr Benegal and Samvidhaan is something that we would all have wanted be involved with Considering the magnitude of production everything happened in a remarkable short period of time We shot this in about three months Playing Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was sort of psychologically disturbing From 1946 to the time when the constitution was almost made there was a change in his role-playing I had to basically work on seeing the way he walked and talked Panditji had a different tone in his pitch than I have naturally For that I listened to a lot of his speeches I sat on a harmonium and actually found his speaking key and then tried to incorporate that so you had to be as accurate as possible There are no shortcuts when you work with someone like Mr Benegal I was always nervous but fortunately it worked out I have to be thankful to Shyam Babu It’s a team effort and no one actor can do anything on his own” Neeraj Kabi as Mahatma Gandhi “The physical transformation to play Mahatma Gandhi meant that I shave my head and lose a little weight The rest of the look was achieved by prosthetics that make-up man Vikram Gaekwad took care of I then read and saw a lot documentaries related to the constitution because you need to understand the soul of the character you’re playing and that takes time I started to device my own techniques to speak the way he did But more than the techniques it’s about why he speaks the way he does or why he walks the way he does That comes from the soul of the person and it takes a while to get He spoke of non-violence but he had so much aggression within I bought a charkha and practiced on it I ate what he ate — boiled rice karela I enjoy that process a lot it takes you to another high altogether when there’s no difference between the an actor and the character he plays” Ila Arun as Hansaben Mehta “When Shyam Babu sits with you to narrate a character he tells you what it demands As an actor I see the mannerisms Hansa Mehta was an editor and she was fearless Plus the topics touched upon during the debates in the Constituent Assembly are issues very close to my heart Then obviously the costume and make-up also helps you get into the character” Utkarsh Mazumdar as Sardar Vallabhai Patel “Shyam Benegal is like google we had him for all the information and help we needed to portray our characters I had to bring in the certain kind of intensity to play Vallabhai Patel and speak how he did It was challenging but having Shyam Babu and a team like this was of a great help” Sachin Khedekar as Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar “I’m glad to be able to play the part of Ambedkar It’s always difficult to play a leader of his stature as people know a lot about them It’s a larger responsibility for an actor to be as authentic as it gets For us we had all the research material with us We had excellent make-up and costume team So the external was taken care of Everything we said is documented and available in the libraries We were to make this about six months ago and I was with it for over a year We had enough time to research about it and make it our own” Divya Dutta as Purnima Banerji “It’s a prestigious thing to belong to something like this Shyam Benegal even if he asks me to just stand in a frame I’ll be right there When he was making Samar I had gone to his office and told him that I’d really like to work with him He said “There’s a song in my film would you like to do it” Working with Shyam Babu is not just an experience you cherish in front of the camera but there’s a lot that goes behind the camera It’s nice to be with people you enjoy working with that’s what you cherish always What I enjoyed about the character that I play is that she has some witty lines; she has a habit of putting her point forward in a sarcastic way She fought for the women rights” Recreating the sets The plan initially was to shoot the show in the Parliament but the team later settled for a set Art director Chetan Pathak explains “There’s been a lot of transformation in how the Assembly looked then and how it looks now So we researched saw old authentic photographs and took dimensions in order to be accurate Later sub-sets like Jawaharlal Nehru’s house the Muslim League and others were

minister succeeding BS Yeddyurappa after he quit the top post over corruption charges in 2011 He had to relinquish chief minister’s post as Yeddyurappa wanted his scalp as he felt Gowda was growing too big for his boots and was replaced by Jagadish Shettar He had also to struggle to get the ticket for the constituency for which powerful state leader and former Deputy Chief Minister R Ashok too

of the National Law School of India University Observers note that both candidates have the potential to tilt the scales Gowda is hoping to retain the seat which his party colleague Chandre Gowda won in the 2009 polls but is battling the "outsider" tag as he is from Dakshina Kannada district He had been an MP twice earlier Gowda is mainly showcasing his achievements as the chief minister during a short stint including "Sakala" scheme for providing time-bound services apart from seeking votes in the name of BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi His party leaders reckon that he has high chances of winning as there are 85 lakh young voters in the 18-30 age group who they feel are leaning towards it due to Modi BJP is also banking on a sizeable number of voters from North Indian states whom it considers as its sure supporters Congress is hoping to win the seat on the basis of caste chemistry and minorities support Of the 23 lakh voters it is eyeing eleven lakh votes belonging to Vokkaliga SC/ST OBC and Muslim communities However the JDS decision to field a Muslim candidate Abdul Azim could upset Congress calculations Congress has turned the battle into an outsider and native candidates It has been campaigning hard to paint Gowda as an outsider and Narayanaswamy a native However the BJP candidate with his clean image and support of local Vokkaliga leaders R Ashok and others has countered "outsider’ tag by highlighting his performance as chief minister Congress also is playing up the clean and secular image of Narayanaswamy who a year ago migrated to Congress from JDS He is confident of a win because he had won the seat as a JDS candidate in 1996 Congress was winning the constituency until 2004 but the seat was snatched by H T Sangliana on a BJP ticket but
