asked for a new television partner midway into the arrangement with Nimbus The last deal was valued at the same price as the earlier one an acknowledgement maybethat Indian cricket was over-priced Remember this is not as much about the price as about the returns at that pricesomething investors in stocks know very well A State Bank of India share might be a very good asset to possess at Rs 1500not quite as good at Rs 3000 maybe People very good at assessing risk and evaluating assets will take a call on the valuation of Indian cricket early next week They will budget for the fact that

slowdown might hit advertising budgetseven the fear that the big stars are slowly moving on Whythe future of Tendulkar might be a factor for there is no denying that he pulls in more viewers than anyone else Bidders will have to counter that with the cost of not having Indian cricket on their channel for it has a rub-off effect on other programmingit allows for bargaining power with cable operators whoin spite of DTHare significant players in the television industry Some big namesexisting channels and those desirous of establishing themselvesareapparently in the fray and sothe 2nd of April should be an important date It is not only the on-field itinerary that counts I hope though that there is as much emphasis on content on television and radio as there is on the price In good marketsproduct quality and price have a very close relationship The first week of April also sees the start of IPL 5 It is a very important year for the IPL for viewership and attendance figures will give us an idea of whether it is still the hot property it was in years 1 to 3 The reason for the little suspicion is that IPL 4by its own standards alonewas a slight disappointment But it was also a peculiar year because India had just won the World Cupa deeply emotional event and the IPL began even before the shadows had lengthened Not only was there a lot of cricket on television but people had already spent fair sums of money on going to a cricket ground But there was another factor too In the months leading up to IPL 4the presence of two new teams had necessitated another auction and that ledhowever gross the parallel might seemto mass migration The relationship between fans and playersat the heart of all sportwas severely affected and everyoneincluding commentatorswere confused initially about who was playing for whom Things will be better this year on that front and given how little India has played in India this yearthere might a greater temptation to head towards the cricket ground Already the Chennai Super Kings are reporting that all Rs 700 and Rs 1200 tickets have been sold out for all home games; apparently internet sales have also been pretty good and these are good signs even if some commentators have recently been spotted shaking a leg in a promo Fans disillusionment IPL 5 will also test the strength of the disillusionment of the Indian fan over recent performances by the national team History suggests that such disillusionment tends to be short-livedthat the search for a good meal is rarely hampered by the experience of a bad one There is also the usual debate in some quarters of playing for money over playing for the country Most people saying that seem to have few problems with accepting it in football and basketball Just as there are accountants and politicians and artists of all kinds so too do we have cricketers of many dispositions And don’t forgetnot everyone has the option of representing India The IPL gives them a stage too But in the endlike with a free and fair electionthe public will vote and this is a big election for Indian cricket Don’t discount another factor though Our front pagesrepositories of bad newsare

Vietnam as against 66 in India Related News By:AK Shiva Kumar Fewresidents of New Delhi may realise the political significance of naming a main road in the capital city after the legendary Ho Chi Minh Uncle Ho is to Vietnam what Chacha Nehru is to us Historical ties between India and Vietnam go back to the fourth century when wars with the Kingdom of Funan in Cambodia and the acquisition of Funanese territory led to the infusion of Indian culture into Cham society Sanskrit was then adopted as a scholarly language and Hinduism especially Shaivism became the state religion Even today the majority of Chams who reside in Vietnam are Hindus Nehru’s visit to Vietnam in 1954 and Ho Chi Minh’s visit to India in 1959 further reinforced Vietnam’s solidarity with India India and Vietnam share many things in common Both introduced economic reforms around the same time The Vietnam Communist Party officially announced its policy of “doi moi” in 1986 to facilitate the transition from a centrally planned economy to a socialist-oriented market economy Doi moi supplemented economic planning with market incentives to encourage private businesses and foreign investments India embarked on its economic reforms a few years later What have been the outcomes Economic reforms have helped boost incomes in both countries Between 1990-2012 GDP per capita grew on average by nearly 6 per cent annually in Vietnam and 5 per cent in India By 2013 Vietnam’s per capita gross national income in PPP international dollars was $ 5030 India’s was slightly higher at $ 5350 Economic expansion has helped reduce income poverty to a large extent in both countries The proportion of the population below the poverty line in Vietnam fell from nearly 60 per cent in the early 1990s to 13 per cent in 2011 In India it fell from 45 per cent in 1993-94 to 22 per cent in 2011-12 Both India and Vietnam fall in the rank of medium human development countries Vietnam ranks 121 out of 187 countries and India 135 on the UNDP human development index The two countries are not that different in terms of income and educational attainment However Vietnam fares much better on health indicators than India and this affects the HDI ranking Life expectancy at birth is 76 years in Vietnam as against 66 in India The under-five mortality rate is 23 in Vietnam and 56 in India Vietnam reports a maternal mortality rate of 67 per 100000 live births and India of 178 Only 2 per cent of children under five are severely underweight in Vietnam as against 16 per cent in India What explains the differences in health outcomes The answer is quite straightforward Historically Vietnam has given much more importance to healthcare than India The Communist Party of Vietnam made a commitment to health-sector reforms in the 1920s and invested in a publicly financed healthcare system As a result Vietnam has an active and responsible public sector-led healthcare system that prioritises primary healthcare Immunisation coverage is almost universal in Vietnam For instance the DPT3 coverage is close to 97 per cent as against 72 per cent in India Seventy-five per cent of the population in Vietnam has access to improved sanitation facilities; the proportion is 35 per cent in India Close to 93 per cent of mothers in Vietnam give birth in institutions and have access to skilled birth attendants In India the proportion has barely crossed 50 per cent The Vietnamese are reasonably satisfied with the public provision of healthcare According to a recent Citizen’s Report Card on Public Health Services prepared by the government of Vietnam and UNICEF 92 per cent of respondents said that their first choice for medical check-up when they were sick was the community health clinic Close to 80 per cent were satisfied with the services provided Almost 74 per cent reported that health workers were attentive and caring But this is not to say that all is well with Vietnam’s healthcare system As in India access is far from universal and problems of affordability and quality persist Public hospitals lack equipment and infrastructure doctors are reluctant to work in rural areas corruption is common and the inequities are striking In both countries rapid economic growth has been accompanied by rising inequalities in income and opportunities In Vietnam for instance 53 ethnic minority groups account for 15 per cent of the country’s population and nearly 50 per cent of the poor Most of the minority communities reside in more isolated and less productive upland regions Similarly rapid urbanisation in Vietnam like in India has brought with it problems of urban poverty Though Vietnam reports smaller gender disparities aversion to daughters also common in India is worrying Vietnam’s sex ratio at birth rose from 106 boys per 100 girls in 2000 to almost 114 boys per 100 girls in 2013 An important factor for this alarming increase according to UNFPA is the steadily increasing access to affordable sex-determination and sex-selection technologies Looking ahead both countries stand to gain considerably by further advancing strategic geopolitical economic and defence ties There is also much to be gained by promoting cultural and knowledge partnerships Crucial for all this will be the furtherance of human development The writer is director of the International Centre for Human
