  1. a The changing nature of violence The changing nature of violence Decongesting our cities S. UBHODEEP

  2. Context: -Changing nature of violence, and the inadequacy of existing rules and procedures to deal with new-era protests. New-era protests are redefining the internal security landscape. UBHODEEP


  4. Industry vs. environment Thoothukudi - pollution issues, from Sterlite's copper smelters Tanneries spewing effluents in Kanpur, to the iron mines in Goa today. Mother of all environmental tragedies remains the Bhopal Gas Tragedy of 1984. Caste conflicts Dalit uprising; farmers' woes across the country; the rape of young women and children; issues revolving around tradition versus modernity; the outsider versus insider syndrome, especially in the Northeast. S. UBHODEEP

  5. Violence in Thoothukudi 3 police firings and the death of over a dozen individuals Unanswered?? -References to intelligence failure and police excesses - firing-not a/c to prescribed law and order procedures. vital to try to determine the actual trigger December 2012 Delhi gang-rape case, it was the 'unsynchronised eruption of simmering anger' which seemed to have been the tipping point. Official version - 'agent provocateurs' among the protesters.(reportedly belong to known militant outfits.) UBHODEEP

  6. Nature of Protest: Qualitative difference from the past is that protests today are beginning to embrace entire communities. Agitations-tend to be 'leaderless'. This is both a strength and weakness. Governments and even tribunals are today viewed by protesters with deep suspicion. Contrary judgments at different times by the High Courts and the Supreme Court have hardly helped. UBHODEEP

  7. Age of 'high voltage' revolt Thinking - system is being "manipulated" in favour of the rich, the powerful, and the big multinationals. not confined to India alone Government regulatory agencies often tend to be overwhelmed by the phalanx of lawyers that the big multinationals can throw at them, challenging and delaying for years on end decisions, especially when they believe that the verdict would go against thenm Pattern : organisations genuinely interested in the welfare of the locals initially launching the agitations, which gradually tend to be taken over by extreme right-wing and left-wing organisations. The result remains the same: widespread disruption. UBHODEEP

  8. Police effectiveness Police effectiveness is also hampered on account of several other reasons: they are often outnumbered by mobilised crowds, UBHODEEP

  9. Need: Authorities : failed to understand was the metastasising nature of the protests and signs of the growing revolt of an 'underclass' against the so-called 'elite' The police must develop 'smart tactics' to deal with popular unrest and threats of the new era Authorities : remain prisoners to Newton's Third Law. This is no longer a valid proposition. Physics today incorporates quantum mechanics which describes a micro-world of uncertainty and ambiguity. Need to revamp intelligence and introduction of new methods to overcome the lacunae in intelligence collection S. UBHODEEP
