only free laptopsmixersgrindersfanscowssheep As the J Jayalalithaa government began the mass distribution of the freebies it announced as part of its election manifestothe old debate about the pros and cons of the practice has returned The debate is quite old Sceptics were raising questions as far back as the 1960swhen the then chief ministerK Kamarajintroduced a scheme to provide free lunches for schoolchildren to stop them from dropping out The mid-day meal scheme was enhanced by AIADMK founder MG Ramachandran when he became CMand is now a model across the country of a tool to address the basic issue of hunger that affected the schooling and thus the future of thousands of children from poor families Howeverthis initiative was not as political as the ones that followed it One of the first politicalor rather electoralform of such measures was the one rupee for one padi rice promise that was one of the main planks of the then nascent DMKs campaign ahead of the 1969 assembly elections In a state where thousands went to bed on an empty stomachthe idea of cheaper foodgrain resonated loudly enough to displace Kamarajs Congress with Annadurais DMK That the government could not quite fulfil the promise exposed its inherent flaw: unsustainability Todays discussions about freebies have two dimensions: of the politics behind giving the giftsand of the culture behind accepting it Tamil Nadu is not alone in seeing tall promises before every election; the manifestos of political parties across the country are in reality a document of dreamsseparated by sectionssub-headings and columns What makes this state different is its track record of fulfilling these promiseshowever tall they may look when announced The public perception about freebies was transformed forever when the DMK came out with a manifesto in 2006 together with all its alliesincluding the Congressthe Left parties and others more minor which promised a colour TV for every poor householdas well as gas connections and stovesfree power for farmers and a debt write-off for farmers and weavers Incrediblesaid some In the words of none other than the then Union finance ministerP Chidambaramthe manifesto was the real hero of that electionwhich helped install the DMK regime in the state Howeverto bestow complete credit for the victory on promises of TVs and so on is over-simplification It leaves out several crucial factors: caste and community mobilisationshrewd political alliances which had parties of all hues and colours in both frontsdissatisfaction over the incumbent administrationthe emergence of the DMDK among other components In effectthe voting public received gifts for a decision they would probably have taken regardless Neverthelessthe wide coverage given to the free TVs made even an ardent opponent of the practice like Jayalalithaa join the frayeven lead the pack From a criticwho compared them to opium to subjugate and enslave the peopleshe emerged victorious in a battle of one-upmanship over promises during the last campaign The Chinese proverb about the value of teaching a man to fishwhich she used to repeat ever so oftenis perhaps Greek to her now Even in her victorywhile the freebies on offer may have acted as an incentive for the votersit is evident that the wave was created by othermore basicreasons

poormixersgrinders and fans (or convection stoves in hill areas on Annas birth anniversary It was the duty of any welfare government to provide essential items and services to the poor free of chargeshe said in justification Beyond the claim of altruismthese promises are political electoral politicsto be precise But the question of the culture of accepting them cannot be defined that easily Those who support the initiatives to provide basic services and products to all say the term freebie is largely elitistmainly used by those who dont require the material on offer The same people who avail of large tax benefitsuse subsidised LPGand run their expensive vehicles on subsidised fuel While the intention behind distributing TVs for free could be questionedit is difficult to find fault with the urge to collect a consumer good with such aspirational value And this urge was not limited to those who didnt have one: standing in linealong with the poorwere those who collected TVs and left chauffeur-driven (As an ironical subtextsome say that the common man collected TVs from Karunanidhi and learned all about his partys corruption by watching it Thishoweveris unlikely as the large majority are almost always tuned into the Sun groups channelswhich stopped airing most such reports after the Maran brothers patched up with the Karunanidhis) Household equipment like mixers and grinders have enhanced the lives of thousands of familiesparticularly of women Laptops would add value to the skill and education of poor students who cant afford itbridging a serious gap between children from different classes Like the computerslivestocktooare investments to transform and uplift poor families To the needya freebie is a helping hand; to the restit is just a gimmick According to those who believe that the state has a proactive role to play in the everyday lives of its citizensespecially those who needs its supportit is simply cruel to argue that the free or cheap rice distributed to the poor has made them lazy (Similar complaints are raised about NREGA as well) Despite the posturing by India and Tamil Naduthere still exist pockets where abject poverty and starvation force people to hunt rats The availability of cheap foodgrain offers reasonable comfort to the poor in this era of explosion of pricesand it also helps to reduce their migration to urban slums Kantian morality says an act should be judged by the intention of the doer But in this contextit should perhaps be viewed from the receivers point of view Because hes the one without any choices
