consonance with constitutional provisions (Illustration by: C R Sasikumar) Top News On August 24 the Union cabinet approved the Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill 2016 The bill proposes a ban on commercial surrogacy restricting “ethical” and “altruistic surrogacy” to legally-wedded infertile Indian couples who have been married for at least five years The husband must be between 26 to 55 years of age and the wife must be between 23 to 50 years of age Overseas Indians foreigners unmarried couples single parents live-in partners and gay couples are barred from commissioning the services of surrogate mothers Only a married blood relative who must have herself borne a child and is not an NRI or a foreigner can be a surrogate mother once in a lifetime Indian couples with biological or adopted children are prohibited from having children through surrogacy Commercial surrogacy will result in a jail term of at least 10 years and a fine of up to Rs 10 lakh The proposed law is not yet in the public domain WATCH |Father Karan Johar Introduces Roohi Yash To The World The cabinet’s decision does not appear to be in consonance with constitutional provisions Article 14 of the Constitution guarantees “equality before the law and equal protection of laws to all persons” Article 21 guarantees “protection of life and personal liberty of all persons” Restricting conditional surrogacy to married Indian couples and disqualifying others on the basis of nationality marital status sexual orientation or age does not appear to qualify the test of equality and has no connection with the intended objectives of the proposed legislation Further the right to life includes the right to reproductive autonomy — that includes the right to procreation and parenthood It is not for the state to decide the modes of parenthood Constitutionally the state cannot interfere in the prerogative of a person(s) to have children naturally or through surrogacy Infertility cannot be a condition to undertake surrogacy The proposed law ought to be put in the public domain before the country’s parliamentarians debate it In 2005 the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) under the ministry of health and family welfare finalised the National Guidelines for Accreditation Supervision and Regulation of Artificial Reproductive Technology (ART) Clinics in India after the extensive public debate that involved all the stakeholders Chapter three of the guidelines which pertains to the code of practice ethical considerations and legal issues stipulates that there shall be no bar to the use of ART by single women and no ART clinic will refuse to offer its services to them The guidelines did not bar an unmarried woman from opting for artificial insemination with donor semen and a child born to a single woman through such a procedure was deemed to be legitimate These guidelines have not been rescinded till date Successive draft bills — in 2008 2010 and 2013 — had reportedly proposed that ART in India be available to all including single persons and foreign couples However draft ART bills of 2014 and 2016 restricted surrogacy to Indian married infertile couples The fate of the ART Bill 2016 is unknown while the cabinet has approved the Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill 2016 The Union ministry of women and child development has a diametrically opposite policy with respect to inter-country adoptions It facilitates fast-track adoptions from India by foreigners The Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act 2015 (JJ Act) allows a court to give a child for adoption to foreign parents irrespective of the marital status of such a person The JJ Act also authorises state governments to recognise one or more of its institutions or voluntary organisations as agencies for the placement of orphans for adoption in accordance with the guidelines notified by the Central Adoption Resource Agency (CARA) The latest guidelines governing adoption of children notified on July 17 2015 have streamlined inter-country adoption procedures They permit single parent adoptions but bar single males from adopting a girl child By all accounts it seems there are different barometers in matters of adoption and surrogacy Surrogacy has been in vogue in the country for more than 10 years The proposed bar on it violates the fundamental rights of stakeholders Foreign and single parents who commission the services of surrogate mothers enjoy protection under Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution — equality under law and the right to life Right to reproductive autonomy and parenthood as a part of right to life of a single or foreign person cannot be circumvented especially when the law already permits parenthood through inter-country adoptions from India — by single persons or foreign couples The draft bill bars medical professionals from offering their services in surrogacy procedures (except for altruistic surrogacy) It also deprives surrogate mothers of their right to livelihood The government has justified the barring of foreigners to prevent the misuse of surrogacy This could prove counterproductive The yardsticks governing domestic altruistic surrogacy will offer an opportunity for corruption and exploitation pushing surrogacy into unethical hands It could foster an underground abusive trade in surrogacy Relatives will be generated and surrogates will be impregnated in India and shifted to permissible jurisdictions Given that the surrogate mothers will be Indian nationals whose safety will be at risk once surrogacy becomes an underground business there is a dire need to enact a comprehensive law that factors in the current societal practices associated with surrogacy The problems pertaining to adoption of Indian children by foreigners were resolved by guidelines which over the years have acquired statutory status A similar approach could be adopted to regulate surrogacy There should be an appropriate mechanism to judge the suitability of surrogate parents — citizens or foreigners should not matter An agency along the lines of the Central Adoption Resource Agency — that administers adoption of Indian children by foreigners — could be created to regulate surrogacy A democratic law which we have been waiting for for the past 10 years must regulate surrogacy in the country (This article first appeared in the print edition under

stars When within a short while of the film opening you start casting about for something to hang a peg on it is never a good sign I spent most of ‘Rangoon’ searching for the film Multiple threads make it up: it is 1943 the British are fighting Hitler and are up against the rising tide of Indian freedom fighters split between Gandhi’s pacifism and Subhash Chandra Bose’s militarism It’s a heavy slice of history for anyone to unpack and film gets tangled in superimposing a love triangle on the time and place Post-interval it battens down and focuses on advancing the plot such as there is but overall ‘Rangoon’ remains a disappointingly patchy and disjointed effort Rangoon movie review | Watch Audience Reaction On Rangoon: Ending Too Dramatic But Kangana Steals The Show The trio comprises a suave Parsi filmmaker Russi Billimoria (Saif Ali Khan) a patriotic Indian soldier Nawab Malik (Shahid Kapoor) and their object of affection the wildly popular stunt heroine Miss Julia (Kangana Ranaut) Their journey from the lavish film sets in Bombay to the war-torn borders of Burma is pitted by intrigue and rivalry featuring a dazzling sword the forces of the INA and Miss Julia’s morale-boosting acts for the ‘boys in the fauj’ The intention of Vishal Bhardwaj’s ambitiously mounted film is clear: to weave the skeins of love and war in order to make a movie full of throbbing passion and grand statements But the execution marred by stilted writing never quite matches up the gap narrowing in just a few places in the second half To make a slice of history come alive on screen you need all-round conviction — of setting plot and characters The three lead actors are all a good fit for their parts — Saif Ali Khan in uber-stylish suits Shahid Kapoor in muddy fatigues and Kangana Ranaut in flouncy dresses and tight curls; they all work hard but break through only in bits and pieces and the film rarely rises above its costumery and puffery The best part of ‘Rangoon’ are its song-and-dances: there is no one quite like Bhardwaj when it comes to creating drama through melody and verse But they are packed in too close and while giving us more to watch also causes a loss in momentum The interesting supporting cast which includes amongst others Satoru Kawaguchi as a wandering Japanese soldier Saharsh Shukla as Miss Julia’s constant companion and the bearer of a terrible secret Atul Kumar as a company actor never really gets a chance to show its skills fully And Richard McCabe as the ghazal-singing Hindi-spouting bad Brit is more unintentionally hilarious than

Umberto Eco notes that a “narrator should not supply interpretations of his work; otherwise he would not have written a novel” Perhaps JK Rowling creator of Harry Potter and pseudonymous crime fiction should have got that memo When in excerpts from an interview published in Wonderland magazine Rowling appeared to question the sanctity of the Ron-Hermione “ship” she set off a firestorm within the Harry Potter fandom of a kind not seen since George Lucas explained that Greedo did shoot first — and then went back to the source material in Star Wars and edited the scene and Han Solo’s character for posterity Rowling’s interview with Emma Watson the actress who portrayed Hermione in the films was her most direct salvo in the so-called shipping wars (derived from “relationship” to refer to a romantic pairing) that all but overtook the Harry Potter fandom several years ago when it became apparent that Ron and Hermione were indeed a thing The Harry-Hermione proponents went so far as to accuse Rowling of failing to understand her own characters But now with Rowling’s admission that Ron and Hermione happened “for reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it” they’ve had the last laugh Or have they It turns out that Rowling aware she was committing “Potter heresy” was a bit more circumspect; she acknowledged that the Granger-Weasleys would “probably be fine” The virulence of the muggle reaction suggests something deeper at play than Rowling’s romantic arithmancy Readers form a relationship with a text as it exists and while authorial revisionism like in Rowling’s case has no retrospective impact on the plot it forever transforms how a fan reads the work It feels like a betrayal of both
