It is not a word of my choice or initiative To be honestit was used by a mediaperson to ask if I approved of vulgar salaries How could I have said that I did It would indeed have been my saying yes to the question if I had stopped beating my wife In any case my answer was that we in India have not reached the level of liberalism to make vulgarity a fundamental right How that sums up my entire view on corporate salaries is not for me to ask But since I have viewsas indeed should every thinkingresponsible personI shall state them explicitly The immediate reaction also seems influenced by the memory of the prime ministers appealway back in 2007to abjure conspicuous expenditure in a country like oursstill struggling valiantly to ensure inclusive growth But from that to surmise that the government is in a mood to control salaries and more is wide off the mark As some observers have saidthe law at present puts a cap of 11 per cent of profits beyond which proposals have to come to the government for prior approval Very few have noticed that the draft legislation forwarded to Parliament and under consideration of the Standing Committee does not have a cap But of courseParliament will take the final view I also need no reminder that many of the huge salaries are drawn well within the cap and by persons whose contribution to the economic landscape is very impressive and indeed applauded by us Voluntary restraints by them indeed deserve a warm round of applause Yet the bottom line remains that there is a need to talk about these things as part of the corporate governance debate Besidesnot everyone against government control also accepts that some form of regulation is unwarranted The discussions at G-20 and the pronouncements of President Obama on corporate greed are certainly stronger statements than words like vulgar and indecent; furthermore no one has yet repudiated the view that the Wall Street remuneration fiasco had something to do with the global recession Corporate governance is about many things: independence of directorsdiligent internal auditsfair disclosures all aroundobjective and responsible statutory audit with appropriate standards of accounting and reportingappointments committeeremuneration committeesocial responsibilityenvironmental sensitivityperhaps affirmative action and inclusive growth But more than all these and at the root of the entire edifice is shareholder democracy As governmental controls disappear in favour of regulationshareholder democracy must be enhanced How this is to be done is what we need to debate The salaries that shareholders then approve should be seen as having the highest stamp of approval It would be stretching the imagination somewhat to say that democracy needs no help If this is clear then all diversionary arguments about not returning to the days of the pastas indeed of adversely affecting the reverse brain drainneed not clutter the debate Allow me to repeat that the government wants a partnership role with corporate India but it has to be a partnership of the 21st century not the disguised proprietorship (either way) of the past There is one last argument that clever populists throw at politicians: physicianheal thyself There is talk about bungalows in Lutyens Delhiunlimited phone callscars and allowancesso what if the salaries are modest I can only suggest please come and be our guests for a week; put up with the hundreds of petitioners for jobs and other help; answer our phone which starts to ring at 5am and does not stop till well past midnight; spend some days in our constituencies and at the same time try to keep yourself from not uttering a single word that the press can turn into a story Finally just think that whatever we havethe good and the badis often for a fleeting moment (short years) and then a tough election makes the rest of the life that is left pretty ugly Meanwhile find the money it takes to nurse a constituency and every electionincluding the one clearly lost before the campaign begins We accept democracy so why should you not even want to talk about it Talking never did anyoneany harm and thenas Amartya Sen sayswe are argumentative indeed Meanwhile it is important to note that the recent talk of austerity in the party is not a political sham or necessarily about a few weeks or months of abstaining from felicity in the words of King Learbut an honest exercise to recharge our moral bearings as the followers of Mahatma Gandhi Not everything we sacrifice will change the world but it will change usmost certainly If we do changethose who question our public morality will have to stop using that as an alibi for not doing the right thing themselves One should not resort to populism to accuse another of populism Meanwhile just as a few black sheep should not tarnish the entire herd; the many enlightened corporates should not allow a few myopic or less-informed colleagues to speak for the entire fellowship Even as the industry associations ask what the country can do for youit will be nice to know what we together can do for those of our compatriots who have no voice in the money market but do have a place in the market of ideas and dreams Ultimately these are also the people who will add to national savings and hopefully direct them to the capital marketas corporate India and the aam aadmi

workplaces in North America and Europe has led to large drops in rates of preterm births and children attending hospital for asthma scientists say According to the first systematic review and meta-analysis examining the effect of smoke-free legislation on child health rates of both preterm births and hospital attendance for asthma were reduced by 10 per cent within a year of smoke-free laws coming into effect The analysis published in The Lancet included 11 studies done in North America and Europe involving more than 25 million births and nearly 250000 asthma exacerbations Currently only 16 per cent of the world’s population is covered by comprehensive smoke-free laws and 40 per cent of children worldwide are regularly exposed to second-hand smoke To date most studies have looked at the impact of smoking bans on adult outcomes but children account for more than a quarter of all deaths and over half of all healthy years of life lost due to exposure to second-hand smoke Researchers searched systematically for both published and unpublished studies over 38 years (1975-2013) reporting on the impact of public smoking restrictions on health outcomes in children aged 12 years or younger Dr Jasper Been from the Maastricht University Medical Centre in the Netherlands and colleagues identified 11 suitable studies – five North American studies describing local bans and six European studies looking at national bans “Our research found significant reductions in preterm birth and severe asthma attacks in childhood as well as a 5 per cent decline in children being born very small for gestational age after the introduction of smoke-free laws” said Been “This research has demonstrated the very considerable potential that smoke-free legislation offers to reduce preterm births and childhood asthma attacks” said study co-author Professor Aziz Sheikh of Brigham and Women’s Hospital US and the University of Edinburgh UK “The many countries that are yet to enforce smoke-free legislation should in the light of these findings reconsider their positions on this important health policy question” Sheikh said Writing in a linked comment Sara Kalkhoran and Stanton Glantz from the University of California San Francisco in the US said “Medical expenses for asthma exceeded USD 50 billion in the USA in 2007 and USD 20 billion in Europe in 2006” “If asthma emergency department visits and admissions to hospital decreased by even 10 per cent the savings in the USA and Europe together would be USD 7 billion annually” they said For all the latest Lifestyle News
