for the critics of any government in India to casually use an expression “undeclared emergency” Those making these exaggerated comments need to introspect their own roles during the Emergency Most of them were either supporting the Emergency or were absent in any protest against the Emergency Emergency was an assault on all democratic institutions It not only established the dictatorship of an individual it created an environment of tyranny and fear in the society Most institutions collapsed on their own The Emergency was declared on the midnight of 25-26 June 1975 The ostensible and the official reason was a threat to public order but obviously this was a phoney reasoning The real reason was that Indira Gandhi had been unseated in an election petition by the Allahabad High Court and the Supreme Court had granted only a conditional stay of the high court order She wanted to continue in power and resorted to theimposition of Emergency to enable this to happen It would be in the fitness of things to remind those who loosely use a phrase “undeclared emergency” with what happened during that period Minister for Defence and Finance Arun Jaitley Getty Images The first act after the imposition of the Emergency was the detention of the political opposition under the preventive detention law District magistrates and collectors were handed over blank detention forms to enable them to detain thousands of leaders and workers of the political opposition Just the name father’s name and address of each detainee were filled in hand No grounds of detention existed in any case Police stations were advised to register identical FIRs arresting ordinary political workers under the defence of India rules after alleging that they were either members of a banned organisation or were threatening to overthrow the Government Nine high courts in the country held that the detention order were justiciable and in the absence of the grounds of detention the same could be quashed The Supreme Court decided otherwise In preparation for the Emergency the Supreme Court had already been packed with pliable judges Three seniormost judges of the Supreme Court were superseded and those believing in the social philosophy of the government were in control of the court The Supreme Court held that an illegally detained detainee had no judicial recourse during the Emergency Justice HR Khanna was the only dissenting judge Pre-censorship was imposed on the entire news media Not a word could be published in the newspaper without going through the censor An officer of the censor stayed in the premises of every major newspaper The entire activities of the opposition were blacked out and the media contained only governmental propaganda Many of those who now complain of an “undeclared emergency” were either active or reluctant supporters of the emergency regime Both the Constitution of India and the provisions of the Representation of the People Act were retrospectively amended so that each ground on which Mrs Indira Gandhi’s election had been set aside could be statutorily reversed The pliable Supreme Court upheld the retrospective amendments to the provision of the Representation of the People Act by upholding the power of parliament to amend any law retrospectively The opposition members of both the houses of parliament stood detained The numerical strength of parliament was reduced This gave to the Government an opportunity to amend the Constitution through a procured two-third majority in parliament A parliament elected for a period of five years extended its own life beyond five years by amending the Constitution Opposition governments in some states were dismissed and India witnessed virtually a single individual rule All ingredients of an absolute dictatorship existed There was no personal liberty no press freedom the parliament became a farce the highest court became subservient to the dictatorship and there was no room for dissent This now was an ideal opportunity for the dictator to perpetuate her family and therefore the younger son of the prime minister Mr Sanjay Gandhi was proclaimed as the de facto successor The country witnessed forced sterilisation mass scale uprooting of the poor including the minorities from their homes and misuse of the mass media An era of sycophancy always suffers from a dichotomy A dictatorial regime is often misled by its own propaganda It becomes consumer of its own propaganda with nobody else believing it It misled itself to believe that the people were in support of the dictatorship It therefore committed the ultimate error of ordering an election which witnessed a rebellion against the emergency regime Today I wonder if those who routinely use the expression “undeclared emergency” introspect and ask themselves a question “where was I during those nineteen months and what was my publicly declared stand at that time” Written by Dipanita Nath | Updated: September 22 2015 12:06 am Actors during the rehearsal of Pratibadhh Hoon (Express Photo by Oinam Anand) Related News When theatre director Lokesh Jain is angry with the state of the nation he seeks kindling in the poems of famous poet Baba Nagarjuna He had first read him at 18 and been co-opted by the unusual conceits and multi-layered wit — which makes his forthcoming play on the poet more than 20 years in the making Nagarjuna’s poems are as rustic and eccentric as the man was A wanderer who was famously unable to stay in a place long enough Nagarjuna visited the deep interiors of India and wrote about the people who had slipped through the cracks He wrote in Hindi and Maithili between the ’30s and ’80s and the play Pratibadhh Hoon attempts to recreate the offbeat humour of imageries such as “alpsankhako ka achar” and “baaki reh gaya anda” The production will be staged at Delhi’s Studio Safdar from September 25 to 27 “I have gone through Nagarjuna’s 2000-2500 works I thought ‘Why not tie up the poems in a performance text’ The poems become the dialogues the actors speak but the sub-text is expressed through their bodies” says Lokesh He has used physical theatre to express Nagarjuna’s proletariats from a labourer to a goatherd to an Adivasi as protagonists of the play The rehearsal space is chaotic as the five actors try to channel the energy of their bodies into controlled vigour Sweat flies muscles are pulled and spines and other organs mined in forceful gestures “The poems are full of metaphors and the actors needed intense movements to bring these out through actions” says the director Lokesh Jain (Express Photo by Oinam Anand) “One thing I saw clearly was that Nagarjuna spoke against whichever party was in power During the Emergency he was jailed for 11 months” says Lokesh as the actors erupt into a poem about the favourite pastime of politicians — making announcements and promises “Om ghoshnaye Om bhashan Om pravachan Om tribute …Om dharti…” they chant They switch roles rapidly picking up lines from one another in ways that split single poems into multiple spaces and characters Dead bodies lie on the floor at the beginning of the play As the Buddhist chants phase in and out — Nagarjuna a Brahmin who converted to Buddhism — the characters awaken and rise slowly while uttering a poem about unsung heroes “Only a few days have passed but the world has already forgotten them” they say in Hindi Pratibadhh Hoon in which Nagarjuna tackles his existentialism follows seamlessly and leads into a paean about an uprising grass-root movement that contains the first stirrings of Naxalism — Hum aap hi apney leader hai aap hi apney mukhiya jungle aur pahar hamare… The actors work with props such as a giant egg that breaks open to reveal shoes — a symbol of Dalit profession and oppression The only female actor in the group Lokesh’s wife Chhavi Jain is covered in bubble wrap and plastered with shipping stickers of “Fragile” and “This Side Up” as she begins to narrate a poem about a poor woman who writes to her migrant worker husband to come home soon even if empty handed When Nagarjuna travelled to satisfy his wanderlust he told stories of subalterns such as a bus driver who chats with him about the colourful glass bangles of his daughter and the rickshaw puller Kalimuddin who calls himself Prem Prakash and wears chandan and rudraksh to earn a living “This is one of the most powerful poems It shows how communalism seeps in and affects the economically weaker class” says Lokesh before adding “It is amazing how so many of Nagarjuna’s concerns still exist in our country” The play will be staged at Delhi’s Studio Safdar from September 25 to 27 Contact: http://s.wwwjananatyamanchorg [email protected] For all the latest Lifestyle News download
