Loony Tunes’ “Kill the Wabbitspoofed the Ring Cycle , and became an entire generation’s “first, and often only exposure to opera,” as Ayun Halliday noted here recently . The Ring Cycle’s overwhelming demonstration of the Gesamtkunstwerk is a thing to behold, and you can see it here performed in full, all four parts, “15 hours of epic operacourtesy of BBC Arts and The Space . The film here, by Opera North, comes from live performances in Leeds in 2016. At the top, see Das Rheingold , below it Die Walküre , just above Siegfried , and belowtterdämmerung (“Twilight of the Gods”). So what should we make of Wagner’s music, given its unavoidable relationship to wars of domination (against even “Wabbits”)? If we are to heed some of his critics, we might think of him as a 19th century Michael Bay. Mark Twain is rumored to have called Wagner’s music “better than it sounds”—though it turns out the quote actually comes from humorist Edgar Wilson.

Long-term debt funds look to benefit from rising prices (falling yields) as they churn gains from bond trading. Shortterm bond funds are less impacted. The central bank commentary , in its policy meet on Wednesday, was in sharp contrast to Street estimates.“The RBI changed stance from being accommodative to neutral,“ said Sujoy Das, head of fixed income, Invesco Mutual Fund. This means the chances of a rate cut could be low in the coming months. The benchmark yield may touch as high as 7% in next two months, dealers said. “The RBI may have to intervene in the bond market, a move which can stem the yield spurt ahead of the fiscal year end,“ said a treasury head from a large foreign bank. The central bank could buy back bonds from the markets to reduce supply and support prices to lower the yield, the person said. Many investors had started investing in debt mutual funds as bank fixed deposit rates fell and they deposited cash in banks post demonetisation.

The Consumer Price Index dropped to 3.4% in December from 6% in July 2016. Banks, meanwhile, have slashed lending rates across the board, emboldened to pass on RBI’s previous rate cuts as deposits of demonetised notes have left the system flush with funds. Overall system liquidity is running at more than Rs 5 lakh crore, according to India Ratings, against a deficit nearly a year ago. But with remonetisation picking up, that’s expected to recede ahead of the fiscal year-end as withdrawal limits are eased, shoring up market rates, experts said. "With commercial banks already having cut their lending rates by about 80-90 bps (basis points) in one clip earlier this year, it is unlikely that they will reduce the rates any further without the policy rate being lowered further," Kaushik Das, Mumbai-based economist at Deutsche Bank, said in a note. In the current financial year, the central bank has collectively slashed the repo rate, at which banks borrow short-term funds from RBI, by half a percentage point to 6.
