Over 600 Chinese have fled across the border to Cambodia. This is consonance with democratic accountability. All must know this important chapter of history I have written this blog so that my friends in the Congress party get an opportunity to look in the mirror The entire text has been taken exactly as posted on Arun Jaitley’s Facebook profile and hasbeen checked for style and clarity by Firstpost Cats have been part of human society for nearly 10000 years but they weren’t always string-chasers and lap-sitters Ancient felines hunted crop-destroying rats and mice for early farmers and in return we provided food and protection At least that’s what scientists have long speculated Now they can back it up Cat bones unearthed in a 5000-year-old Chinese farming village indicate that the animals consumed rodents and that some may have been cared for by humans The findings provide the earliest hard evidence of this mutually beneficial relationship between man and cat The book of cat domestication is missing a few pages The oldest record of cats entering human society comes from an early farming village known as Shillourokambos located on the southern coast of the Mediterranean island of Cyprus In 2001 researchers led by Jean-Denis Vigne now director of research at the French National Centre for Scientific Research in Paris discovered the shared grave of a human and feline underneath an ancient home The skeleton of the animal—dated to 9500 years ago—was surrounded by carved seashells indicating that cats held a special status in this society Indeed Vigne and others have argued that felines were important to the survival of such villages whose large surpluses of grain attracted armies of rodents; the tamest cats meanwhile cozied up to humans self-domesticating themselves over the course of thousands of years Yet there was no solid evidence for this hypothesis and cats largely vanished from the historical record until about 4000 years ago when they began to appear on the tomb paintings of ancient Egypt The new study fills in some of that missing history A team of archaeologists excavating an ancient settlement known as Quanhucun in central China has found eight cat bones—a pelvis a mandible and other pieces all dating to about 5300 years ago—scattered among other animal bones pottery fragments and stone tools in garbage pits around the site The villagers perhaps a thousand strong were successful millet farmers—and they clearly had a pest problem The researchers unearthed rodent burrows tunneled into grain storage pits and v-shaped ceramic vessels the size of giant flower vases likely designed to keep stored grain out of the mouths of scavengers The inhabitants’ best weapon against these rodents however may have been cats When the team analyzed the bones of the felines it discovered forms—or isotopes—of carbon and nitrogen that indicated that the cats ate small animals which themselves had eaten grain Based on other bones found at the site those animals were likely rodents the researchers report online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences The species of the cats is unclear But the size and shape of the remains indicates they may belong to the genus Felis which encompasses several species of small felines including the Near Eastern wildcat (Felis silvestris lybica) believed to be the ancestor of today’s housecat While these animals were protecting crops villagers may have returned the favor One of the cats had an unusually high level of grain in its diet “That’s unexpected because cats are obligate carnivores” says team member Fiona Marshall a zooarchaeologist at Washington University in St Louis “It suggests that this cat was eating human food” Another cat was an older individual perhaps about 6 years old based on the wear of its teeth Marshall says “For a wildcat it’s very rare to have teeth so worn so old” says Vigne who was not involved in the study “The most acceptable interpretation is that this cat was taken care of by people I’m convinced that there was a tight connection between humans and cats at this time in China” “Scientists have long suspected that cats were drawn to early farming settlements because of rodents and human refuse but there’s never been actual evidence to test this hypothesis” Marshall says “That’s what’s exciting about these new data We’re finally seeing the mechanisms behind feline domestication” “This is a super-interesting opening chapter” says Carlos Driscoll whose genetic sequencing of hundreds of wild and domestic cats in 2007 pegged Felis silvestris lybica as the ancestor of today’s housecats “But it’s just the beginning of the conversation” For one thing he notes that the Quanhucun cats were found in the trash rather than buried with pomp like the Cyprus cat was “That raises the possibility that these animals weren’t pets at all They may have been eaten or used for their fur” The species also makes a big difference says Driscoll the WWF chair in conservation genetics at the Wildlife Institute of India in Dehradun If the Quanhucun cats are lybica they made it from the Near East to China thousands of years earlier than thought possibly along ancient trade routes But that also means that the cats were already tame and that the Chinese farmers played little role in their domestication It’s also possible he says that the Quanhucun cats were a different species of feline—perhaps jungle cats(Felis chaus) or leopard cats(Prionailurus bengalensis)—that were domesticated independently in China Because the DNA of these creatures is different from that found in modern housecats however these animals either died out or were overtaken by domestic cats from the Near East Vigne is now working with the Chinese team to sequence the DNA of the cat bones If the animals were wildcats he says it means that farming was critical to the domestication of the cat and that this turn of events may have happened more than once “In different places in the world you have this same process going on It strengthens our view of what led to this more intense relationship between humans and cats” It also means something more fundamental: The rise of human civilization was destined to give rise to the housecat like Andy and Maurice dying so young and everything that’s happened to me recently” the Presidential aide noted that a measure of maize was now being sold for N120 as against N150 Ahmad claimed that a bag of Maize

one would start to believe that the new president (if Meira is elected) will not remain within the confines of Rashtrapati Bhawan act merely on the basis of aid and advice of Council of Ministers or be a ‘passive’ protector of the Constitution In Meira’s view with her at the helm the Rashtrapati Bhawan will become a ‘happening place’ – issuing a series of diktats on the basis of the supposed idealism she pursues A thousand-year-old caste system cannot be destroyed by sitting in the majestic building she wishes to occupy To see a "destruction of the caste system" she would need to travel extensively to different parts of the country not just as president but also as a radical social reformer; taking on the might of political parties social and religious groups and institutions their age-old practices as well as influential individuals at all levels While making that lofty opening statement on theidealism of parties which have nominated her for thepresidential post she was perhaps unaware of the following points: First as far as the idealism of democratic values goes except for Leftist CPI and CPM all other 17 parties including Congress function like a private limited company – where the leadership position of the party is guided by the principle of dynastic succession Since she made this statement on 27 June two days after the nation recalled the excesses of the Emergency imposed by India Gandhi in 1975 it is relevant to recall the negation of democratic values of all kinds imposed during thecrisis Second freedom of press and freedom of speech was officially abrogated during the Emergency Third though all political parties and leaders make tall arguments about ending poverty the fact remains that India has been ruled by the Congress for all but 12 years since Independence Interestingly Indira fought and won the 1971 Parliamentary Election on the "garibi hatao" (remove poverty) plank Fourth nobody disagrees that barriers of caste system need to be broken The problem arises when she links this with the ideology of the parties supporting her candidature She apparently has not noticed that BSP chief Mayawati is supporting her only because of her caste In fact Mayawati expressed so twice in the past several days When BJP first announced Ram Nath Kovind’s candidature she had said that she would be forced to support Kovind a Dalit if the Congress and other Opposition parties did not come up with a Dalit name of their own She repeated her stance when Meira’s candidacy was announced Despite hailing from Bihar Meira perhaps never realised that Lalu Prasad Yadav has always been outspoken about his Yaduvanshi (Yadav caste) support base Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party too is based on the same support base The list of caste-based parties in India is a long one Meira also expressed her anguish about the presidential election being pegged as a Dalit versus Dalit contest Little did she realise that the first words uttered by the principal spokesperson of her 17 supportive parties Lalu about her were to mention that she is thedaughter of the great Dalit leader Jagjiwan Ram She has also been fighting parliamentary elections from her father’s constituency Sasaram (reserved for Schedule Castes) in Bihar Meira will file her nomination on Wednesday the last date and will launch her campaign on a high note of symbolism – from Mahatma
