of the top stars of the country demands him to give his opinion on important issues but megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he finds taking a stand tough and admires people who do so The 74-year-old actor has been involved in various initiatives like Polio eradication tiger conservation Hepatitis B awareness and he says he is more comfortable contributing to social causes “There are different people who have different viewpoints Some artistes take a strong stand I admire them but I don’t have that kind of strength But if there is something I can do socially for the country which I do I am ok to do that Taking a stand is tough” Bachchan told Karan Johar during a session at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2016 here Johar who has directed Bachchan in films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna spoke to Bachchan on a range of issues including his choice of films and his fondness for social media Bachchan says often people expect him to give an opinion but he feels he does not have that amount of knowledge or experience to share his viewpoint “People think that because we happen to be in a profession which is public what we will say will have the same amount of relevance as the ones who are more educated and learned That’s a fallacy We don’t carry that knowledge or experience “We have personal opinions but I’d rather keep it to myself and not make it public Somebody will make a headline out of it and it will go on for a day or two We will be abused a hundred times and that’s it So what really is the point of doing that” Besides dazzling the audience with his performances Bachchan is also a social media savvy person and the Pink star says he enjoys interacting with his fans through the online medium as it helps him know their immediate reaction “It (social media) is something new and novel It is interesting and gives you some kind of connect with people that are fond of you It is very immediate In today’s times everything is so fast You get immediate reactions I find that very helpful” Talking about online trolling Bachchan says “You get a lot of abuses but I think it is very healthy” Johar however could not believe that something like this would happen to a well-respected star like him But Bachchan says it is a reality that you cannot escape if you want to stay on social media “Yes it does I will take you to my site and show you I mean if you are not prepared for it then don’t go on it I think its perfectly fine You can’t be perfect you can’t have any one not abuse you” During the session when an audience member asked Bachchan whether he would ever try for the Presidentship of the country the actor dismissed it saying he does not have the capability or knowledge to take on the job “This is a long standing joke started by Shatrughan Sinha and I am just fed up of giving clarity to this Do you really think that I can be President There is no worthiness there is no capability no acceptability no knowledge nothing” For all

Congressional (Source: USA Today Sports) Top News Rory McIlroy sprayed the ball all over the place Casting aside his own advice he decided to stay for another day at the US Open McIlroy hit just five of 14 fairways on his way to a 6-over 78 in the first round He got a close look at some of Erin Hills’ notoriously thick fescue but he wasn’t alone “You cannot play this golf course if you’re not in position off the tee and I wasn’t in position” McIlroy said “Obviously I paid the price for it today” He had plenty of company Jason Day also tangled with fierce fescue and had two triple bogeys in his round of 79 Dustin Johnson hit nine of 14 fairways and was 3 over Thursday Pat Perez swung and missed completely in the tall grass behind the 15th green “I just played bad golf man” Day said with a chuckle The USGA said Tuesday that overnight storms and more rain in the forecast were making some of the native grasses lay down which would create such dense rough that it would be virtually unplayable So it decided to trim the thickest rough on the fourth 12th 14th and 18th holes The plan drew an indignant response from McIlroy who usually is quite good off the tee “Really We have 60 yards from left line to right line” he said “You’ve got 156 of the best players in the world here if we can’t hit it within that avenue you might as well pack your bags and go home” Fast forward to Thursday and it sounded as if McIlroy had decided to try again “I know if I hit fairways around here the course is still soft enough you can get it close and give yourself a lot of looks for birdies” he said McIlroy got off to a nice start with an eagle on the par-4 No 2 but that was his biggest highlight He was 6 over on the back nine including double bogeys on 15 and 17 The 2011 US Open champion didn’t hit another fairway after No 10 “They should be wide enough for me to hit it into” he said “I just didn’t hit it into them Yeah it was just one of those days I was just a little bit off” While McIlroy brushed aside concerns about the long fescue in the days before the Open Kevin Na caused a bit of a stir when he posted a video to his Instagram account complaining about the long stuff at Erin Hills But Na had little trouble in the first round shooting a 4-under 68 “I think people _ some of the guys took my social media post kind of the wrong way” Na said “If you read my post it says I love the design I was just trying to show what we have in some spots And fairways are generous I said all that But I guess people don’t like to read “But I just tried to show what it is And there are some spots where they’re really brutal And I was just trying to show that” Na said he got some support from some of his colleagues “They got a kick out of it” he said “A lot of players were saying thank you they mowed the fescue because of me Hey can you tell them the course is too long they’ll move up the tees The players get it And I had a good time” For all the latest Sports News download

government and whoever its leader the challenge will be to reinvigorate investor confidence in the political stewardship of the economy restore the credibility of the executive and rebuild trust in the sanctity of policy and contracts Else the much-needed investment in infrastructure and manufacturing will not be forthcoming and the numbers of un- and underemployed will continue to mount The social consequences will most likely limit the new government to one term Corruption scandals have hogged the headlines but arguably the most damaging effect on investor sentiment over the past several years has been the activism of the tax authorities and the twists and turns in the interpretation of policies and contracts A fly on the wall of the board rooms of Vodafone Nokia Microsoft BP Shell Posco Tesco Walmart and many more would be struck by the paradoxical tenor of conversation The directors would be in agreement about the potential of the country All would accept that notwithstanding the slowdown in growth and the lacklustre leadership over the past three years the fundamentals remain intact and India remains on track to be an economic giant They would endorse the view that relative to opportunities elsewhere India is an attractive destination and that it would be imprudent to push it off their agenda That said they would collectively hesitate to put their

charges on MNCs the announcement by the BJP to reverse the UPA government’s policy on multi-brand retail the unilateral tightening of contractual conditions that assured petroleum companies market-related prices for gas and the right to market it freely the labyrinthine approval procedures that have bogged down major mining and power sector projects the reluctance of the bureaucracy to take decisions for fear of attracting a vigilance enquiry and the long lead times in judicial decisions The thread linking all such conversations would be the loss of confidence and trust in public institutions Cornell Professor Eswar Prasad’s wonderfully written book The Dollar Trap: How the US Dollar Tightened its Grip on Global Finance brings into sharp relief the positive impact that confidence and trust in public institutions has had on the direction of capital flows in our globalised and connected world And by implication the negative consequences of loss of confidence and trust Prasad writes that notwithstanding recurring bouts of financial crisis in America that should have led to an outflow of capital rising interest rates and a falling dollar US treasury securities and dollar denominated assets have continued to be a favourite haven for investors In September 2008 for instance following the collapse of Lehman Brothers US financial markets went into a downward spiral the credit markets froze and Dow Jones was on the skids Economic fundamentals suggested there would be a run on the dollar What happened was just the opposite There was a net inflow of half a trillion dollars into US treasury securities nearly all of it from private investors and the dollar rose in value against all other currencies In July 2011 the government came within a day of declaring a technical default on its debt The credit rating agency Standard and Poors did in fact downgrade US government debt from AAA to AA+ on August 2 There should have been a flight of capital away from dollar assets Instead there was an inflow of nearly $180 billion in August and September and again mostly from the private sector In December 2012 the economy once more headed towards a “fiscal cliff” The US Congress was at an impasse over the government’s borrowing limits Economists wondered whether this would push the dollar off its perch and deliberated on the extent of the spike in interest rates The dollar remained steady and the yield on US treasury bills continued to range around 2 per cent Prasad’s message is that economic logic and fundamentals are not the only determinants of capital flows There are “softer” factors with strong explanatory force Investors moved money into dollar assets even though they at times received a negative real return because they had confidence and trust in the fairness and transparency of US public institutions and because the dollar was the safest relative bet As he put it “if not the dollar what else” in a market roiled by volatility, Raj
