Actor Paresh Rawal during an interaction at the UT Guest house in Chandigarh on Saturday Express Top News FAITH to religion politics to intolerance comedy to censorshipactor Paresh Rawal’s responses are remarkably candid as he talks about his roles as an actor Member of Parliament and a common man in today’s changing India The renowned actor was here for the famous and successful play ‘Kishan Vs Kanhaiya’ staged Saturday evening at Tagore Theatre Rawal plays the role of an atheist in the play who files a case against Lord Krishna in the court of law The play dramatically and with perfect comic interludes looks at the many superstitions and customs that are followed in the name of religion and how religion is becoming a commercial and money-making business with many malpractices justified in the name of God Though a sensitive subject Rawal says the play has seen resounding response from theatre lovers across the country with the film ‘Oh My God’ based on the play “My own character influences the play and I believe the most important thing is to help the poor and get nearer to God Also it’s important to be honest and express the truth” shares Rawal who is acclaimed both as a theatre and film actor known for his comic roles Rawal considers himself as a theatre actor first a medium which will always be his first love According to Rawal theatre is ever-evolving as the play’s form has changed with the times with constant improvisations based on the audience’s feedback and responses “A film once made is canned you cannot change it In fact most people say the play is much ahead of the movie Theatre is like riyaaz and many young people don’t have the patience focus and dedication to pursue it opting instead for television I wish to do a play which requires a large cast but because of these limitations I have not been able to finalise the production” rues the actor Rawal says that the audience is very intelligent and discerning They can judge a good actor from a bad one and will pay if the production is worth it “so as an actor the constant effort is to be effortless on stage and screen And as far as comedy is concerned in Indian films it has improved over the years” who humbly attributes his success to a “stroke of luck” Ask him about his new role as an MP and Rawal says that there are so many facets of the country and society he is witnessing now for as an actor one lives in a cocoon never seeing the complete sky from a window “Every person is political but active politics is different Also these days it is fashionable to talk about intolerance and say anti-national things Ideology and passion are two different things and thinking different is not being divided but just being aware” reflects the actors who is strictly against censorship Rawal apart from other film projects is looking forward to a movie based on Satyajit Ray’s short story with Naseerudin Shah a Marathi film by Nana Patekar and a play ‘Dear Father’ The show

Obama came out strongly in support of network neutrality a principle that requires equal treatment of all internet traffic He called upon — he cannot legally order — the US regulator the Federal Communications Commission to “create a new set of rules protecting net neutrality and ensuring that neither the cable company nor the phone company will be able to act as a gatekeeper restricting what you can do or see online” Most internet users would share Obama’s opposition to arbitrary blocking or slowing down of any content especially if a commercial entity attempts to do so However it is risky for India to follow Obama’s lead on net neutrality The main reason is that the Indian and the US broadband markets are qualitatively different American companies Comcast and AT&T derive their near-monopoly power from their ownership and control of underground fixed infrastructure Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited their Indian counterpart has no such advantage With its dominant share in fixed lines it has barely 17 per cent of the 60 million broadband customers Indian users can choose among nearly 10 operators in most service areas — unthinkable in most countries Thus Obama’s main argument — the need to prevent abuse of broadband markets by monopolies in control of fixed lines — does not apply In India the challenge is scarcity not competition as the broadband market suffers from small size not from dominance by any player or technology Fixed lines constitute barely a third of India’s limited broadband connections Roughly 90 per cent of the 251 million users of the internet access it on mobile phones Optical fibre will of course play an important role when the proposed but much-delayed National Optical Fibre Network is in place It will take years before fibre can challenge wireless for broadband access Wireless networks pose unique challenges for ensuring net neutrality It is more complicated to expand their capacity to accommodate increasing amounts of data For fixed line networks the challenge is mainly the finance needed for upgrade However for wireless networks increasing capacity requires adequate spectrum — a scarce natural resource The right frequency bands are critical too For a telecom operator acquiring spectrum is not trivial even if it is willing to pay In India the government auctions the spectrum in quantities and a timeframe it decides There is a detailed regulatory process to determine reserve prices and other features of the auction Expanding or upgrading the predominantly narrowband wireless network is a financial technical and regulatory challenge Imposing net neutrality prematurely might be counterproductive India needs massive investments in its networks — wireless and wireline infrastructure — to reach the levels of developed countries where nationwide fixed-line networks have existed for over 30 years Net neutrality could hurt unserved regions where the business case might already be weak Major promoters of net neutrality such as Facebook and Google recognise the environment in developing countries They are entering “zero rating” arrangements with mobile operators to offer preferential cheap or free access to their services As David Talbot first pointed out in the MIT Technology Review in January such agreements violate net neutrality They promote “walled gardens” and discriminate against smaller content players whom net neutrality seeks to protect Developing countries cannot be rigid about net neutrality Proponents and opponents of net neutrality highlight two equally important aspects of the future role of internet in our lives — the right to its content and the incentive to create the infrastructure to access it Net neutrality therefore raises difficult questions that demand nuanced answers The debate about net neutrality despite being couched in the language of public policy is primarily about two formidable sets of commercial players with markets and profits to expand and defend Thus AT&T and Comcast in the US want large content players such as Netflix and Google whose video services consume almost half their bandwidth to share the costs of creating and maintaining infrastructure Accepting such a demand is a downhill slope for content companies whose advertisement-driven business models depend on increasing reach and usage of date services Regulators in the wireless-driven markets of developing countries face a formidable challenge in reducing the risks of unbridled net neutrality They must reconcile the interests of network owners and those of heavy usersAsking the very big users of data to share some costs is not unreasonable It might even promote larger network neutrality goals The writer is a consultant on telecom regulation For all the latest Opinion News download Indian
