three seats but has been slowly yielding space to the BJP The NCP is identified with former Gondia-Bhandara MP Praful Patel Of the 16 assembly seats here the BJP has six the Congress eight the Sena one and the NCP none Combined with Nagpur the respective tallies of BJP Congress Sena and NCP for east Vidarbha are 13 11 2 and 1 The BJP hopes to maintain its lead and even improve if a Modi wave works The split with the Sena affects the BJP less than the split with the NCP does the Congress because the NCP is stronger compared to the Sena thanks to Praful Patel’s influence in Bhandara-Gondia which has seven segments It is a battle for survival for Praful Patel who is helping party nominees in Gondia This predominantly tribal region has a number of reserved constituencies Even if a particular caste is traditionally aligned to a particular party it is not guaranteed to stick to that party if it hasn’t fielded a candidate from that caste And there is a rush of OBC candidates in open constituencies BJP strongholds Bhandara (SC): It’s BJP vs Sena here In a seat currently held by Sena the BJP has won thrice in the past five polls and is expected to give Sena MLA Narendra

The Song of the Spirit: Cheap Clothes Across Continents and Centuries Top News Book: The Song of the Spirit: Cheap Clothes Across Continents and Centuries Author: Jeremy Seabrook Publisher: Navayana Pages: 288 Price: Rs 495 Jeremy Seabrook an independent writer journalist and chronicler of the human condition who has long had an interest in South Asia probing the lives of those who inhabit India’s slums and Muslim ghettos turns his attention in this book to the workers of Bangladesh’s garment industries who clothe the world but like the weavers of Bengal in colonial India barely have enough to cover their own nakedness The book takes its title from Thomas Hood’s elegy on the women workers in Lancashire’s textile mills The Song of the Shirt (1843): working “in poverty hunger and dirt” moving their fingers to the command of “Stitch Stitch Stitch” they sewed at once “with a double thread A Shroud as well as a Shirt” If Bangladesh has emerged at all in the news in recent years it is on account of the disasters that have befallen its garment industry none as calamitous as the collapse of the Rana Plaza commercial building under whose debris over 1100 people were left dead Seabrook’s book is a searing indictment of the callousness of factory owners and other agents in the global system of circulating capital who are complicit in creating miserable working conditions for those employed in Bangladesh’s largest and most profitable industrial venture It is also an extraordinary tribute to the workers who pile into Dhaka and other centres of the garment industry from all corners of the country Their lives are sketched not so much in detail as in poignantly suggestive prose Do people flee to that “washed-out concrete jungle” that is called Dhaka which Seabrook unflinchingly describes as one of the world’s ugliest cities to escape the narrowing of human possibilities that Marx sought to capture in his brutal condemnation of the “idiocy of the rural countryside” One might suppose that it is the aspiration to become something in life or merely to earn a livelihood that brings people to the city from the interior but what would then make the story of Bangladesh so distinct Migrants coming into Dhaka “bring the sincerity and artlessness of rural life—qualities ripe for transformation into exploitable labour”; yet the city where they arrive with such hope becomes another prison – 12-hour working days in windowless rooms under the watchful eyes of cruel taskmasters But the specificity of their stories is to be derived from the particular conditions which push them to the city—the loss of ancestral land the inability to feed too many mouths the need for money to secure a dowry for a sister and so on Bangladesh is a land dense with rivers and scarred by cyclones The rivers are teeming with fish but the river is also “thieving” and “hungry”; when the Meghna overflows its ravenous maw swallows up whole houses farms and people In this short yet compelling book Seabrook skilfully weaves together tales of peasants with stories of weavers moving back and forth between the village and the city water and land lush green fields and the ramshackle appearance of South Asia’s urban patches even the poetic and the idioms of history He is versed in historical sources but not burdened by them; and only someone with the sensibility of a poet can ruminate on the strange interplay of fire and water that has shaped the contours of the lives of his subjects Water in the form of “tidal surges cyclones and floods” has “always been the most usual element that brings death to Bangladesh”; the villagers flee this menace to arrive as labourers in the city’s garment factories often to be consumed by the fires that have time and again struck the garment industry’s ill-regulated factories and warehouses One might have thought that water fights water but in Bangladesh the two often collude—as if the poor did not have enough wretchedness in their lives There are other desultory facts almost poetic bits that take the breath away: who would have thought that Murshidabad once the world centre of silk weaving and now a haunted culture may have accounted for 5 per cent of the world’s total product The Song of the Shirt writes Seabrook “is a reflection on the mutability of progress” The dominant narrative of human progress presupposes “a deterministic and linear process” but Seabrook insistently reminds us that “experience in the clothing and fabric industry suggests certain areas of the world are liable to periods of industrialisation but equally to de-industrialisation” (17) The most ambitious aspect of Seabrook’s intellectual enterprise and not surprisingly the one that is most fraught with hazards of interpretation is his attempt to suggest the various ways in which Bengal and Lancashire mirror each other The demise of the weaving industry in Bengal under colonial rule “coincided with the rise of the mechanised production of cotton goods” in the greater Manchester area; even as Dhaka became a ghost town “Manchester became the centre of intense economic dynamism” Lancashire is now utterly denuded of its textile mills and Manchester has lost population; but in “a ghostly replay of traffic in the other direction” of “the machine-made clothing” that wiped out Bengal’s famed spinners and weavers Dhaka with its 2500 garment factories has become nearly the epicentre of the world’s manufactured clothing Seabrook invests much in this comparison constantly suggesting similarities between 19th century Britain and contemporary Bangladesh with respect to the lives of the workers the nexus between the state and manufacturers working conditions and much else One might be moved by Seabrook’s comparisons to accept that widely quoted French expression “the more things change the more they remain the same” But this temptation must be resisted if only because a sensitivity to the politics of knowledge should introduce some caution in comparisons between Europe’s past and the global South’s present Nevertheless in Song of the Shirt Seabrook has accomplished the enviable task of rendering naked the social processes which have helped to clothe the world and disguise some unpalatable truths about the treacherousness of what is usually celebrated as entrepreneurial capitalism
