Research told IANS In India WhatsApp has the highest penetration among any “social-centric” web/app platform available on the nearly 260 million active smartphone users “Several marketers are leveraging an infantry of smart or influential folks to develop and spread targeted and viral-natured content I believe the viral messages developed and spread are not by a single source but many individuals and firms working on this behind the scenes” Shah added There are ways to populate the sharing of such viral content but it can be defined in two parts — content and objective “While objectives and the purposes could be anything one can easily relate these with driving mass awareness creating social buzz dragging public attention on political or public issues or making fun among friends or sharing memes or news” Anoop Mishra one of the nation’s leading social media experts told IANS Social media or digital marketing agencies work behind the content marketing strategies to make stories viral and shareable on WhatsApp “Several FMCG companies major political parties and politicians have their in-house sponsored team of social media warriors to generate and share such content or hashtags on various social media platforms” Mishra noted Read: Around 950 mn Indians still not on Internet: Assocham-Deloitte study According to Shah among several social media platforms WhatsApp has a clear edge because of its user-friendly approach which has put the platform in a strong (as well as vulnerable position) for flow of both good and bad news or information or any content across the platform “Since the degree of separation among different WhatsApp users is theoretically lower there is a high chance for any information to go viral faster than any other social media platform or even word-of-mouth” said Shah With some 150 million active users in India Facebook is the second-most used social media platform and can also act as a catalyst for proliferation of viral content due to a broader sharing and a greater engagement with the content “However Facebook is quite curated and controlled via an algorithm according to a person’s social graph and Facebook’s advertising engine and hence potentially less viral than Whatsapp” Shah pointed out Facebook’s third property Instagram is also quickly rising to become a popular platform from the perspective of social media influencers to drive rich content for marketers and mainly target millennials Read: Snapchat’s parent company acquires Israeli AR start-up Cimagine: Report Is there a revenue model in there for those making posts viral “Absolutely wherever there is a greater reach and high engagement for any platform a potential revenue model certainly exists” Shah stated Owing to its “no ads” DNA WhatsApp has so far been resistant to a direct engagement-driven revenue model However with Facebook connecting WhatsApp to its social graph it unlocks potential for Facebook to work with marketers who in turn work with influencers to build a robust value chain “Right now with WhatsApp its much more unorganised and influencers are earning directly from the marketers without any Facebook or Whatsapp intervention unlike the Facebook or Instagram platforms” Shah told IANS According to Mishra the content is being prepared by digital marketing agencies with some earning prospects Read: Google to launch online safety campaign for digital consumers in India “But the reality is that more than 80 per cent of the images or videos shared among the WhatsApp groups are downloaded from websites without any personal revenue benefits excepts some blogging sites which are paying their members for posts comments likes or to share contentson linked social profiles” Mishra told IANS On August 25 WhatsApp made extensive changes to its privacy policy announcing it would and could share users’ personal information including their phone numbers with its parent company Facebook — a move that drew sharp criticism from privacy activists and the Delhi High Court in India The move was touted as the first step towards monetising WhatsApp since Facebook acquired it for $19 billion in 2014 “Right now WhatsApp is quite fragmented and unorganised compared to Facebook We believe this will change fast as Facebook tries to indirectly monetise the power of WhatsApp as a ‘content sharing and targeting’ platform” Shah added For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Manik Sharma | Published: August 20 2017 12:00 am (Illustration: Subrata Dhar) Related News I’m 19 razor thin restless of mind but overwhelmingly quiet It has been a year since my father left town on a transfer leaving mom behind to the hapless task of raising a bitter confrontational boy My maternal grandfather has just died Three days after his last rites have been performed I arrive at his home after appearing for an exam Every face I encounter is sombre there is soreness in each eye The women look distinctly bedraggled lifeless The men all of them are absent either physically or emotionally I see mom through the curtains that separate men from the women sitting in a corner surrounded by her sisters blank and weak My stomach suddenly collapses on me I feel this surge a wet force behind my eyes My mind is a confused tangle of emotions over what is expected of me I turn around and place myself in the huddle of men somehow managing not to break into tears For at least 25 years of my life I did not shed a tear Not that I was clinically recording the fact but as far as memory serves right I simply refused to give in whenever a situation arose — be it a death in the family breakups academic failures or even the sheer physical pain of injury Often my ideological tussles with dad which I eventually lost left me broken Emotionally overwhelmed I resorted to anger even to insults but never to the slow eloquence of wet-eyed stutters To me they were a mark of weakness a “feminine” side that like most men I was raised to disown Masculinity means many things to many men In my late teens I interpreted it as the necessity to disagree or to hold a contrarian view If dad looked west I looked east merely because I felt I had the choice to do so Defeats whether physical or mental at that age can be jarring Judgement is what a boy in a crowd of hyper-masculine men fears the most I decided I would rather be alone than be judged tying up with it my earliest ideas of dignity and self-respect I made sure that while I did not gain in height I did not lose anything in the eyes of those watching me The men that I came across inside or outside home exhibited an equal aversion to appearing vulnerable They wanted to be strong they believed themselves to be strong and they dismissed anything else as a sign of weakness Auraton ki tarah roya matt karo (Don’t cry like a woman) — is a refrain that was both an insult and an injury to the likes of us Years later I realised there was a vacuum behind each stubborn face A vacuum it was espoused women were marked to fill Six years from the day I hid from my mother in broad daylight in a room in Pune I broke into tears over a minor disagreement with a woman I was tired of the charade embarrassed too For 25 years I had taught myself to believe that the other side of the wall was where all the “real” men gathered If you found yourself on the wrong side as I did myself now I would be earmarked as a pushover considered either weak or feminine or both I promised myself it was a one-off never to be repeated — a warning so to speak But it was difficult to live up to that promise I found myself breaking down more often a lot more than expected I started weeping as I watched movies I cried when I longed for home and I sobbed my heart out when I failed to understand what was happening to me It was like a dam had burst within Most men that boys look up to as role models are strong stubborn characters who radiate a kind of stony emotional strength But what does it serve All my life growing up I looked at dad and my uncles as these incredibly sturdy men who never wavered at moments of distress But were they really impervious to grief and sorrow Who were they really when they were alone Did I know them I wonder if they hid in washrooms and sobbed quietly or shed a drop in the pall of television-lit rooms when no one was looking I wouldn’t think any less of them now if they did Two years ago when my maternal grandmother died I returned home to find my mother sobbing

Hindu nationalism is the core ideology of Modi The nationalist rhetoric goes with a rejection of pluralism and alternative power centres — since the populist is the nation any opposition is necessarily illegitimate The judiciary is seen as an obstacle to the expression of the people’s will Students academics NGOs who protest in the street — like in Bihar and Gujarat in 1973 or JNU and DU today — can be disqualified as “anti national” Similarly some opposition parties are not only adversaries but enemies who divide the nation Hence Indira’s de-legitimisation of the 1971 “reactionary” Grand Alliance and the BJP’s objective of a “Congress-mukt Bharat” But to reform their party along the lines they have enunciated is quite a task for these leaders Indira could not transform the Congress from a party of notables into a cadre-based party to use for social transformation As early as 1972 she had to turn to Congress (O) politicians who had no interest in social reform but whom she needed to contest state elections Similarly in spite of his anti-corruption speeches Modi has not been able to clean the BJP (has he tried) According to the Association for Democratic Reform among the 312 BJP MLAs who have been returned in UP 83 declared criminal cases against them These 27 per cent do not compare favourably to the figures Milan Vaishnav presented in his recent masterpiece When Crime Pays: Money and Muscle in Indian Politics — 24 per cent of BJP candidates to the Lok Sabha from 2004 to 2014 declared pending criminal cases more than in any other party Like Indira Gandhi in the early 1970s Narendra Modi has selected the president and the chief ministers of his party since 2014 including Yogi Adityanath the first religious title-holding figure heading a state government in the history of India In most of the newly BJP-ruled states the party has fought elections without projecting any candidate for chief minister The main campaigner has been the PM himself But in spite of clear affinities there are important differences between Indira Gandhi and Narendra Modi First her Congress (R) had representatives from every religious community In contrast the BJP did not nominate a single Muslim candidate in UP and has appointed a notoriously anti-minority Hindutva leader as CM Secondly under Indira Gandhi the over-representation of upper castes among MPs and MLAs continued to erode whereas their percentage has tended to rise in states the BJP has won since 2014 In UP this development has taken a dramatic turn: According to information compiled by the Trivedi Centre for Political Data the new assembly has 44 per cent upper caste MLAs 12 per cent more than in 2012 and the highest share since 1980 This data suggest that India’s new populism is the vehicle of a section of the elite’s revenge (after years of the plebeianisation of public life) and relies on an ethno-religious definition of the nation The BJP is indeed taking the country on the path of an “ethnic democracy” model This model was formulated by Israeli social scientist Sammy Smooha on the basis of his country’s trajectory: While the regime remains in tune with its democratic Constitution (elections remain rather fair the judiciary retains some independence etc) in practice minorities are marginalised The comparison between Indira Gandhi and Narendra Modi suggests that the populist repertoire prevailing in India today is not entirely unprecedented; it also shows that populism being a political style rather than an ideology it can be on the left or on the right There are two things that we cannot fully compare yet First the performances of the leaders in terms of public policies Usually populists speak a lot but do not act much In contrast to the achievements of Nehru who built the institutions of India’s democracy Indira did not implement many reforms in the early 1970s although she abolished the princes’ privileges and nationalised banks Narendra Modi has not initiated massive reforms either — but he may yet do so Last with the transition from Congress (R) to Congress (I) the personalisation of power resulted in the centralisation of decision-making and the suspension of internal democracy — which emptied the party’s governing bodies: Indira’s authoritarianism resulted in the promotion of yes-men in the Congress Paradoxically the Indira era of Congress hegemony made the party more vulnerable after It is too early to say whether the BJP which is more a cadre-based party with a strong RSS architecture will follow the same trajectory Jaffrelot is senior research fellow at CERI-Sciences PoCNRS Paris professor of Indian politics and sociology at King’s India Institute London For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top News| Updated: October 6 2017 4:44 am The row began as a war of words between the two sides when in an interview last year Ranaut said that she didn’t understand why “exes do silly things” to get attention Related News The latest salvo in the ongoing row between Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut has been fired by the former who took to Twitter on Thursday to make his first public statement on the matter Writing that he could no longer ignore the “dirty perverse mess” that he had been “dragged” into the actor stated “The truth is I have never met the lady in question one on one in my entire life Yes we have worked together but there has been no meeting in private Thats (sic) the truth” He further stated that there was no evidence to back up Ranaut’s claim that the two had been in a “7-year long passionate affair” and said “I have been harassed by this for 4 years and the well meaning and probably necessary social bias towards women has deemed me helpless in defending myself” The row began as a war of words between the two sides when in an interview last year Ranaut said that she didn’t understand why “exes do silly things” to get attention This was in response to a question about whether Roshan had had her dropped as the female lead in Aashiqui 3 Roshan responded on Twitter by denying any such relationship but the matter quickly escalated when he sent her a legal notice demanding an apology In response Ranaut’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui sent a 21-page reply stating that whatever happened between the two “was with full consent of both parties” A major bone of contention in the matter is the large number of emails which Ranaut claims to have received from Roshan and which the latter has denied sending In interviews given over the course of the row Ranaut had opened up about the affair and even demanded an apology from Roshan for having caused her “mental trauma” by leaking the emails she had sent him while in April this year Roshan’s lawyers filed a complaint asserting that Ranaut had been stalking and harassing the actor by sending explicit emails Gunjan Mangla an associate of Mahesh Jethmalani working on Roshan’s case told The Indian Express “All emails were submitted to the cyber crime cell and the investigation is underway Mr Roshan has also submitted his passport details to counter all the allegations made by Ms Ranaut We are positive that cyber cell will do a fair investigation” Responding to the latest development Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel posted a photo on Twitter of an email allegedly received from Roshan Ranaut’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiquiee claimed that Roshan was using diversionary tactics and not answering questions The statement concludes “My client demands to know that except for unreliable fabricated and unverified emails which Mr Hrithik Roshan is relying upon (and has never shown to my client till date) is there any other act of stalking that has been indulged in on the part of my client If no then on what grounds is Mr Hrithik Roshan claiming to be stalked by my client ” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBack in the 1970s it used be said that the optimists were learning Russian (taught in Belvedere by Fr Schrenk),After an hour long interaction with students at HP university.
