We fight often for the shadow and lose the substance. This may be a bit graceless But it is important to recognise this Institutional reform is often important But institutions derive their animating purposes from the fears and insecurities of those who house them What do you do with a set of elites whose self-delusions are now reaching Shakespearean proportions They areliterallybecoming shadowy figures chasing shadows How does one diagnose this condition There are several explanations On the positive sideit could be argued that this is part of Indias great churning Years of accumulated poison is coming out There is more to come Old practices of governance had made large sections of the elite complicit to the point that they are insecure But to this is added a subtle sense that you get that those who sit in high seats are implicitly conscious of their own lack of authority Many have real talent and achievement But they are tainted by the idea that somewhere they owe their positionsnot to those considerable talentsbut to formations of power How can capital incite dreams of innovation when it is compromised by its manipulation of the state How can media perform a credible function if its business practices require brokering power How can politicians act as representative figures if their positions are more dependent on the top of hierarchies rather than on the citizens A similar story can be told of most professions: academics deriving power from cliquesjudges from deference to the Bar and so forth But part of the vertigo we are experiencing is that moment of transitionwhere the old power structure remains activebut loses all authority It does not command respect But it demands it Nothing signifies the corrosion of elites more than when they have to demand respect You know at that point the game is up Of coursethis characterisation of our elites is too sweeping It does not make fine distinctions It does not do justice to real achievement But this distrust has becoming a self-fulfilling fact It even ensnares those who seek to bring about change Its biggest manifestation is the fact that we now seek authority figures outside formations of power So we are pressed between two phenomena: an elite structure that daily exposes itself as little more than a series of intricate rackets; and a generalised suspicion that any connection with power taints With more and deals being exposedthis generalised suspicion is only going to grow But add to this two pressures One is a kind of zeitgeistwhich equates expediency with innovation Part of the great churning was the idea that you break old fetters by asking about their instrumental value But in a sensethis expediency has now redounded on itself It is hard to imagine a society schooled in expediency having moral anchors The second pressure is the pressure of visibility Wealth and power will always have attractions as markers of accomplishment But a paradox of media culture is that it creates a sense that no accomplishment is accomplishment unless it is visible Thankfullymost ordinary Indians resist this allure and quietly work away But elites driven by ambition now have an irresistible compulsion to be in the limelight In a society where standards have withered awayachievement does not bring the limelight; the limelight is the achievement What else can explain the inordinately diminishing ways in which respected figures of our establishmentfrom judges to generalsare converting their professions into a kind of publicity contestseeking validation not in professional normsbut some inchoate idea of public esteem Put these elements together uncertain authorityvast complicityvalorisation of expediencyand the search for validation in publicity and you have a recipe for monumental pettiness Lack of trust in oneself is compensated by corroding trust in others; complicity always produces a self-destructive aggressionexpediency wears away the small graces of the moral lifeand publicity invariably makes us overstep our proper limits As Gandhi knewtackling psychological insecurities requires a special kind of skill Extricating ourselves from the layers of insecurity and inhibition is a precondition for sensible action Actors too wrapped up in themselves will scarcely internalise awareness of the demands of the historical moment; any historical possibility will vanish behind a parade of restless egos The pessimism of the moment is not simply that decisions are not being taken or that reform is not happening It is more serious and elusive at the same time It is that it is hard for optimism to survive the bonfire of credibility that daily news has become The writer is presidentCentre for Policy ResearchDelhiexpress@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Published: October 13 2017 8:41 pm Bruce Arena resigned from US men’s football team coach’s post (Source: Reuters) Top News Bruce Arena resigned as manager of the US men’s national team on Friday after failing to qualify the squad for the World Cup finals in Russia next year The football world was left stunned on Tuesday when the United States needing an away win or draw at bottom of the group Trinidad & Tobago to clinch one of the CONCACAF region’s three automatic berths suffered a humiliating 2-1 defeat The loss coupled by wins from Panama and Honduras meant that the United States have failed to reach the World Cup for the first time since 1986 “It is the greatest privilege for any coach to manage their country’s national team and as I leave that role today I am honored and grateful to have had that opportunity twice in my career” Arena said in a statement released by the US football Federation “This certainly is a major setback for the senior men’s national team program and questions rightly should be asked about how we can improve No doubt this process already has started and will continue so that US football can progress” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | Updated: October 10 2017 1:35 am R Ashwin gave away runs at nearly 6-an-over against Andhra Pradesh (Source: File) Related News Andhra came within 19 runs of creating a major upset in the first round against a power-packed Tamil Nadu outfit A calculated gamble of a declaration a challenging total and a charged-up run-chase set up an exciting finish in Chennai While Abhinav Mukund finished five runs short of a century Baba Aparajith got to three figures as India opener Murali Vijay returned to the crease after having retired hurt the previous evening with an ankle injury to score a crucial 55 to help TN push for a win A target of 218 in nearly around 42 overs gave Andhra a reasonable chance And they set off in hot pursuit and with confidence with opener Srikar Bharat and former India U-19 batsman Ricky Bhui leading the charge Bharat first put on 85 for the first wicket at a good rate with DB Prashant before being joined by Bhui When those two were together TN were in trouble B Sumanth and Ashwin Hebbar too were equally aggressive R Ashwin bowled most of the overs predictably but was taken on by the Andhra middle-order and went eventually at nearly 6-an-over The constant fall of wickets kept pegging them back though as the required run-rate went from manageable to astronomic They needed 30 off the last two overs eventually and despite scoring 10 off the penultimate over had to call it off with a ball to spare At Chennai: Tamil Nadu 176 and 350/6 declared (Baba Aparajith 108 not out Abhinav Mukund 95 Murali Vijay 55) drew with Andhra 309 and 198/7 (Srikar Bharat 64;
