Candidates may only accept donations of $2700 per person per election and $5000 per election from corporate or labor political action committees "We are not subject to contribution limits like the campaigns are so that certainly helps build resources to get our message out" said Jordan Russell spokesman for the Opportunity and Freedom PAC which is backing former Texas Gov Rick Perrys White House run The Opportunity and Freedom PAC has already spent more than $23 million on advertisements touting Perry more than twice as much as the Republicans presidential campaign raised through the end of June This dynamic frustrates many of the presidential contenders and some including Cruz are openly calling for contribution limits to candidates to be eliminated entirely "Our current campaign finance system is ridiculous" Cruz told the Center for Public Integrity in a recent interview "The way to do it is to let campaigns speak for themselves directly" Even grassroots favorites such as

in South Asia The crossed wires of South Asian history keep damaging Indias political stature There is an interesting ferment in the region The ferment oscillates between moments of immense hope and looming despair The Shahbag protests in Bangladesh presented the spectacle of a mass mobilisation taking the liberation narrative into its own hands The ostensible objectivepunishment for the perpetrators of 1971seemed narrowbut here was an attempt to come to terms with history being played out on the streets The protest was also a sort of rebuke to reactionary forces like the Jamaat And predictablyreactionary violence followed In Pakistanminoritiesfrom Shias to Christiansare increasingly at risk Action has been taken in the wake of anti-Christian violence But how does one explain the near silenceinternationallyon the continued violence against Shias Is it a result of Pakistans continuing indispensability to great power politics Or is the human rights imagination circumscribed In Sri Lankaa combination of intoxicated nationalism and authoritarianism is taking its toll on the quality of democracyand slowing progress on reconciliation with minorities The Maldives are in a political mess Nepals constitutional stalemate can still have worrying outcomes What is Indias skin in the game Its external affairs minister was quoted as saying that India does not want to play big brother The intention is fine But translated into South Asian English it means that we do not have a policy Indias being caught off-guard in the region has put a great question mark on its leadership capabilities As Nitin Pai recently pointed out in an articlewe do not have a coherent framework for the region Our current policy has only one leg We were hoping Indias growth engine would somehow become attractive enough for our neighbours to want to join the party And to be fairIndia has worked hard to this endand is prepared to go the extra mile But we forgot two challenges The region is still populated with leaders and political forces that will cut off their own nose to spite their face; and investments in enmity override the well-being of populations You need different instruments to deal with such leaders But more importantlywhichever way you look at itthe stability of the region depends on getting three things right in all of the countries: democracythe nature of nationalismand a commitment to human rights The current ferment is related to these issues Unless the region as a whole builds a consensus on human rightsthese spillovers will continue This is obvious But the history of South Asia would be different if the obvious had not eluded us This point is important because only a consensus can give coherent content to our engagement Pai suggested that we engage with forces that are compatible with our national interest But in the long termthese forces can only be those that have the potential to build a new normative consensus in South Asia; it cannot be national interest defined in a short-sighted way Indias capacity for navigating these choppy waters seems quite diminished Domestic preoccupations have put us largely in a reactive mode The fragmentation of politics has made even our friends across the region doubt our capacity to deliver The sheer erosion of state power has ensured that we are neither feared nor loved As someone from a neighbouring country recently remarkedwith a touch of snidenessa country that could not handle the case of a birth certificate of its own general is unlikely to have much stomach to deal with far more wily and obdurate generals in the region There is also panic in some quarters that our ability to manage the region might diminish with the US leaving Afghanistan This is an open question But the panic projects state weakness The truth of this charge is not the issue But the perception licenses the thought that it is easy to take liberties with India A slowdown in Indias growth will only diminish this authority And then there is the unresolved question: what is the arsenal of instrumentsfrom the use of force to sanctionsthat India is willing to use in the service of its goals There are limitations to what instruments we can use But the perception has gained ground that India is conducting foreign policy without many instruments at its disposal But we still have not reached a proper articulation of norms for the region Officiallywe will want to say both that we respect sovereignty and that we are concerned with human rights and democracy But on occasionthese things come into conflict Most of our neighbours think we will somehow reconcile these contradictions in our mind without actually doing anything Secondin the case of Sri Lankain particularwe were right to want to see the LTTE finished off The issue of war crimes may be both politically and legally more complicated But the quality of Sri Lankas democracy and its reneging on commitments that would enable the participation of Tamils are hugely worrying If the reason of state doctrine subverts internal democracy in a meaningful formit should be a matter for concern Thirdhuman rights discourse in South Asia has to evolve beyond concern for co-ethnics: Tamils getting agitated only if Tamil interests are at stake; or Hindus getting interested if it is just a matter of Hindu interestsetc Even the most well-meaning of our politicians so easily slip into a communal vocabulary that vitiates the legitimacy of their cause Fourthwe have to admit that nothing is more hypocritical than the human rights discourse After alla country like the USwhich has done much to legitimise the idea of collateral damage in war and created a web of 40 countries complicit in condoning torturecan hardly carry authority on this subject But as the great realist K Subrahmanyam used to remind usnorms can have power despite being marked by organised hypocrisy Human rights matter Finallythere is the power of our own example: if our democratic practice licenses reason of state indiscriminatelyour ability to be an interlocutor in regional norms will diminish You need states to be willing to act to pacify violence But there is no long-term future for the region if the consensus on norms does not shift So our neighbours do not have to worry about norms They do not have to worry about Indias capacity to pressure them And they also have the reassurance that assorted Indian powers like the Lord at Tirupati or the Saint at Ajmer are on their side Welcome to South Asia The writer is presidentCentre for

Baahubali franchise has pulled all stops to showcase its protagonists as no less than demigods Related News Baahubali Universe is expanding and is set to etch an indelible mark on Indian consciousness as a modern day myth Usually in any myth we expect enchanting adventures from the protagonists setting out on torturous journeys It was true for many mythological figures such as Ulysses Thor Achilles etc Likewise Baahubali franchise has pulled all stops to showcase its protagonists as no less than demigods waiting to be tested by insurmountable conflicts Modern-day VFX does the trick weaving magic on the screen which saves us from imagining things in our head from cryptic writings of mythologies Baahubali first installment deserves great aplomb for keeping it simple yet magnificent in its imagination especially with the last twist in the tale: Why did Katappa kill Baahubali However to touch the nerve of the audience even a magnum opus such as this has to trade on the set pattern of norms It has to identify with contemporary value system It must have a simplistic narrative that leads to untidy conclusions People love it because it tells a story of an abandoned rightful heir Shivudu embarking on a journey in turn knowing the history of his lineage and eventually in the second part will seek justice from his evil uncle For a viewer happiness will know no bounds when the heir apparent would assume the crown though it represents a mere change of hands between kin Peppered with the virtues of a favoured prince Amarendra Baahubali; the loyalty of a slave warrior Kattappa; the wickedness of a father-son duo Bhallala Deva and Bijjala Deva the movie is a delectable watch In the first part the loyalty of Kattappa towards the thrown of Mahishmati sat well with the audience and became USP of the movie Ironically the servitude of the skillful swordsman who could have become a warlord on his rights did not irritate Of course it did when he had to perform duties for the evil king and his slavery was innocuous as long as he did for Baahubali or Mata Sivagami There were some reveling moments: at one point when Aslam Khan invites Kattappa to dine with him he replies slaves are not allowed to dine with kings nobody can buy my freedom and whoever gets born into my caste will be a slave for the crown And this becomes a matter of loyalty for Khan rather than an issue of injustice and hierarchy In fact the film again referred to this while praising the virtues of young prince Baahubali who forces Kattappa to share his food with him It is portrayed that upper-caste invitation for inter-dining is an act of greatness and redemption of privileges that comes with birth Also read:Baahubali 2 song Saahore Baahubali: Theme of SS Rajamouli film resonates in this uplifting track Watchvideo In every mythology we find dabs of morality and sense of justice that help them stand apart from the crowd and here we still have a second part where things can turn for better where Shivudu alias Mahendra Baahubali not only finds justice for his mother walks in the footsteps of his father but also would make sure that slavery as that of Kattappa does not exist He should not stop at dining but share power with the slave And Kattappa no longer has to be abided by duty to the crown I for one want to see Kattappa as the king of Mahishmati as everything wraps up This would be-be the true justice considering his experience that should not be overwhelmed by somebody parachuting from the mountains with surname Baahubali to stake claims But the cinematic scope is
