cricket commentary seems rather amusing in Hindi… and I put in some reactions… so for those who are unacquainted with the game and its terms “They are calling the ‘short ball’… ‘choti gend’ and the ‘long ball’ the ‘lambi gend’ and I heard one that was quite funny… for the ‘dot ball’ they were saying its a ‘bindi ball’ “I mean… a ‘choti gend’ is in size a small ball not a true description of the ‘short ball’ the ‘short pitched ball’ Similarly with all the other terms… The ‘lambi gend’ comes from the ‘long ball’ the full length ball… and then the ‘dot ball’ as ‘bindi ball’… No this is not a

times world champion even if Vettel wins (Source: Reuters) Top News Lewis Hamilton can hear the fat lady clearing her throat even if Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel managed to prevent her from singing after Sunday’s US Grand Prix The Briton’s German rival had reminded reporters before the race that his tenuous title hopes were not over until the operatic diva had sung as the popular saying goes If Vettel succeeded in keeping her quiet for another weekend by finishing second while Hamilton won the race from pole position for Mercedes it was merely to delay the inevitable Mercedes still clinched their fourth successive constructors’s title and next Sunday’s Mexican Grand Prix should wrap up the other one no doubt with a full Mariachi band trumpeting away in the background with two races to spare “We can see the fat lady back stage preparing” quipped Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff after Hamilton went 66 points clear of Vettel with his fifth win in six visits to the Texas track Hamilton need now score only nine points a fifth place will do to become Britain’s first four times world champion even if Vettel wins If he had arrived in Austin with one hand metaphorically on the title

to let his mind run away with the situation “There’s still three races to go In my mind I’ve still got three races to win Still a lot of points available” he said “So I don’t think until it’s ever

latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Muzamil Jaleel | Published: December 9 2014 12:30 am The PDP can form a government with the Congress which will no longer be seen to represent Jammu Related News In Jammu and Kashmir political history isn’t the mere remembrance of a forgotten past; it is a constant reminder of important crossroads where political decisions became blunders with far-reaching implications In these elections history repeats itself in J&K as it seems to be returning to a situation resembling 1983 even though the political scenario has grown more complicated While a Kashmir-centric PDP that advocates self-rule a joint mechanism for the two Kashmirs and a porous LoC has emerged as a favourite in Kashmir and several Muslim majority constituencies in Jammu the BJP has come up as the top contender in the Hindu heartland of Jammu riding the Modi wave and a political agenda of complete integration of the state with the Indian Union This election may be leading up to a divide in the state where different parties would represent “Muslim” Kashmir and “Hindu” Jammu based on different and opposing regional and communal aspirations This could lead to a situation where J&K becomes ungovernable To understand how history may have come full circle after 31 years it is important to look at the 1983 assembly elections and how the subsequent moves made by the major political players impacted the state In the 1983 assembly polls Farooq Abdullah was riding a sympathy wave His father Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah had died and the Valley had rallied around Sher-e-Kashmir’s successor The party won 46 seats sweeping through the Valley and most of the Muslim majority areas of Jammu Archrival of the NC then the Congress could only win one seat in Kashmir With Sheikh Abdullah in the saddle the Congress had built its vote base through an exclusively Hindu-centric Jammu-oriented regional agenda The Congress managed to win 26 seats of which 24 came from Jammu Though the story of electoral battles in J&K was different in those pre-militancy days the polarisation along communal and regional lines during the 1983 polls had led to a state government where Jammu was a bitter opposition to a party that represented Kashmir (the Muslim majority Valley Muslim majority parts of Chenab valley and Pirpanchal region in Jammu) The Congress was at the Centre and Indira Gandhi was the prime minister Aspiring to be a regional force Farooq had been pivotal to the creation of a non-Congress front led by NT Rama Rao Farooq held a conclave of 14 non-Congress regional leaders that included NTR Ramakrishna Hegde and Chandra Shekhar in Srinagar But taking on Indira and Congress at the national level had a price Farooq’s government could last only 13 months as the Centre orchestrated a split in the NC and the Abdullah family and a new government was formed led by Sheikh Abdullah’s son-in-law Ghulam Mohammad Shah with outside support from the Congress At the time Mufti Mohammad Sayeed was the Congress’s J&K chief Incapable of winning a single election after Sheikh Abdullah returned to electoral politics Mufti had outsmarted his young son Farooq This election had an impact on Farooq’s understanding of electoral politics in the state Farooq concluded that power in J&K flowed from Delhi and his aspiration to come up as a strong regional player in an anti-Congress alliance in national politics would only result in the fragmentation of the NC and the ouster of the Abdullahs from power in the state This is why Farooq shelved his dream and befriended Rajiv Gandhi when he became PM after Indira’s assassination Farooq even drew closer to his party’s ideological opponents within Kashmir and befriended Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s father Mirwaiz Farooq to come up with the “Double Farooq” proposition in Srinagar Mufti was removed as the Congress’s J&K chief and dispatched to Delhi Subsequently the NC joined the Congress in an alliance and fought the 1987 assembly elections which demolished the NC’s Kashmiri nationalist identity This void was filled by the Muslim United Front — a conglomerate of religious and political groups opposed to both the NC and Congress — and Abdul Gani Lone’s Peoples Conference Worried about losing its grip over Kashmir the NC-Congress alliance rigged the polls to disallow the new political formations to enter the assembly even though their sway didn’t extend to more than 20 seats in Kashmir This helped create a situation where “bullet not ballot” came up as a way to determine the destiny of the people of Kashmir The opposition to the NC-Congress alliance in 1987 later became the founding members of the separatist Hurriyat Conference While separatist politics still plays an important role in Kashmir and continues to oppose participation in elections the 2014 polls bear an uncanny resemblance to 1983 The NC has been replaced by the PDP in Kashmir and the Congress’s soft saffron and regional card has been taken by the BJP Though the PDP’s performance may not be like the NC’s tally in 1983 it is riding an anti-incumbency and self-rule agenda to become the largest party in the next assembly The BJP too has hardened its stance In fact senior BJP leader and finance minister Arun Jaitley recently outlined the party’s Kashmir policy During a recent interaction in Srinagar he invoked Vajpayee more than half a dozen times only to give a new Modi-esque meaning to Vajpayee’s ambiguous doctrine to hold talks on Kashmir “within the ambit of insaniyat” He also ruled out the NC’s autonomy and the PDP’s self-rule saying that the 67 year-old debate on the constitutional structure of J&K is obsolete Unlike in 1983 no party is likely to get an absolute majority in the next assembly If the PDP emerges as a major player in the Valley with a few seats from Muslim majority areas of Jammu removing the NC from its areas of influence and the BJP sweeps the Hindu heartland in Jammu displacing the Congress from its traditional base there are only a few propositions for the formation of the new government The PDP can form a government with the Congress which will no longer be seen to represent Jammu The PDP can ally with the BJP which would be political suicide for Mufti’s party which has been built around a Kashmir-centric and soft separatist discourse The BJP can join the NC and other independents to form a government This last proposition is unlikely especially because the NC cannot afford to further erode its base for power In fact every possible combination seems fraught with dangerous political consequences If the PDP manages to cobble together a coalition the Modi government at the Centre will be a strong opposition within the state assembly too This would make things difficult for the new government on two counts: it will not secure the support of the Centre and Jammu not just the BJP would be out of the government If the Congress gets enough numbers to form an alliance with the PDP it will be harder for the new government because the BJP will be its opposition in the state as well as at the Centre If there are enough members outside the NC Congress and PDP party folds and the BJP manages to cobble together a majority it will leave Kashmir and Jammu’s Muslim regions outside the government in a Muslim majority state The only possibility for a stable government is if the PDP joins the BJP in an alliance but that would be a repeat of what Farooq Abdullah did after his government was dismissed in 1984 That “pragmatic” political decision led to disastrous consequences This time around the stakes are much higher Amid the current fragile calm this political situation could add a new and serious dimension and lead to faultlines deepening along communal divides [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Deepti Priya Mehrotra | Updated: July 28 2016 11:02 am She began the fast on November 3 2000 demanding withdrawal of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act from Manipur Top News Irom Sharmila’s decision to end her fast is a moment for us to pause and take stock It is also a moment to celebrate not only her extraordinary grit but also the fact that she will live free once again On August 9 she will resume normal eating and by so doing become a free citizen: No longer jailed under a spurious charge (“attempt to suicide”) Sharmila’s is a political fast She began the fast on November 3 2000 demanding withdrawal of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) from Manipur — a law which empowers armed forces personnel to shoot and kill on the mere suspicion of “a threat to law and order” Documented atrocities — killings disappearances rape harassment torture — have piled up over the years The AFSPA has been promulgated in most parts of Manipur since 1980 It is an anti-insurgency law but under it insurgency has multiplied manifold The law is in force also in Jammu and Kashmir and other parts of north-east India Sharmila’s stand points to the imperative need for a political solution rather than a military one to the problems faced by Manipur There should be dialogue rather than repression A recent Supreme Court judgment provides much-needed corroboration for such a stand: The court ruled that that armed forces cannot use excessive force even in areas that come under the AFSPA According to the Extra Judicial Execution Victim Families Association (EEVFAM) the petitioner in this Supreme Court case there have been 1528 fake encounters in Manipur by the armed forces and state commandos since the 1970s The Supreme Court has questioned the impunity and noted that all these “must be investigated” What if anything has Sharmila’s fast achieved The Indian state has not repealed the AFSPA Does this mean she has failed Sharmila’s fast was an individual decision born of deep conviction It created a much-needed nucleus for protest around which the pain and anger of Manipur’s ordinary citizens could coalesce Her incredible act of endurance drew the attention of people across India and elsewhere to the violence in Manipur Many ordinary people academics human rights activists feminists and more — began to take an interest in Manipur learn about this state its politics people culture and history It is a part of the country long neglected by the “mainstream” — missing from the national imagination except in highly prejudiced ways Sharmila does not speak of secession or liberation — rather she emphasises respectful integration people-led development education and respect for the distinctive culture and way of life of her people She has unshaken faith in certain goods — in human love justice peace everybody’s right to lead a life free of fear If anything she has sown the seeds for a different kind of politics an intelligent revolt that relies on soul-force rather than brute strength Her firm gentle persona demonstrates the power of non-violence Dissenters need not shout or sloganeer or pick up the gun; we can challenge brute power simply by refusing to succumb to it The state has tried to browbeat Sharmila into silence hide her away in a solitary cell But this has only helped amplify her voice The struggle against AFSPA did not begin with Sharmila but she brought a unique visibility to it Meira Paibis (women activists literally flaming torches) students and activists of Apunba Lup and organisations such as Human Rights Alert have all continued the anti-AFSPA struggle strengthened by the growing awareness of people elsewhere The Save Sharmila Campaign for instance a network of people across India has been educating people against the AFSPA at every available forum; the National Association of People’s Movements has expressed solidarity; Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi frequently represented her cause; the United Nations Human Rights Commission has continually expressed concern for her situation In Manipur the first week of November is celebrated as a Festival of Peace Justice and Hope in solidarity with the anti-AFSPA struggle Human rights organisations from Nagaland and Manipur come together in solidarity with Sharmila even if they may disagree on much else Ordinary people from Kerala made a play Meira Paibis in 2010 in support of Sharmila’s demand and travelled across India up to Imphal staging it at various places; one woman Ojas thereafter performed the play over a hundred times Sharmila’s protest is an integral part of the tapestry of struggles woven by countless Manipuri women and men On December 10 2008 Human Rights Day Meira Paibis began a relay hunger strike in a shed just across the hospital where Sharmila was incarcerated In the 2005 anti-rape protest women activists challenged the state disrobing in public turning the spotlight on sexual violations This compelled the Indian state to institute an inquiry into AFSPA (the Justice Reddy Commission) Both the anti-rape action and Sharmila’s fast come across as unique non-violent and powerful forms of protest They have creatively reinvented the power of the human body to communicate important truths and formulate resistance — quite effectively With Sharmila withdrawing from her fast without achieving the stated objective it may seem that the state has won this round But in fact it has lost — whatever credibility it had By giving up a fast which the state failed to respond to Sharmila has displayed courage not weakness In proving impervious to the needs and demands of a humane democratic polity the state has turned out to be an even worse bully than she had initially imagined What does the future hold for the struggle against the AFSPA Do we continue to live with militarisation impunity and worse The answer lies not only in Sharmila’s hands but in the hands of a much wider set of people It may be salutary to recall the moment when Aung Saan Suu Kyi was set free after years of confinement: She re-entered the political arena as the world celebrated and soon became from a symbol of peace a real woman with her incredible strengths but also her flaws and limitations The struggle is not forged by one person but her leadership in the world outside may create a new impetus the nucleus required to actually forge an alternative politics (This article
