For all the latest Entertainment News," alleged Roopa in the report. De Villiers looked good while making 45 off 38 balls, however, And a stench engulfing the football organisation that so often assumes the moral high ground when preaching to FIFA.The English Football Association is in turmoil again and it’s a crisis of its own making Rather than a diligent attempt to discover if England women’s team coach Mark Sampson did make a racially offensive joke to striker Eni Aluko the FA was accused of engineering a cover-up when the leadership faced a parliamentary committee Aluko capped 102 times for England and a qualified lawyer spent two years trying to convince the FA to believe Sampson made offensive comments in 2014 about whether her relatives coming from Nigeria for a game were infected with Ebola Aluko was brushed off and ultimately paid off by an FA appearing to hush the episode under the Wembley Stadium carpet Even when a settlement totaling 80000 pounds ($105000) was agreed to halt her grievance – ostensibly so England faced no distractions at the Women’s European Championship in July – Aluko felt the wrath of FA After Aluko’s case emerged in public in August and the FA’s handling of the saga unraveled the Chelsea player tweeted that the organization’s policy was “ignore deny endorse” The FA’s response emerged when Aluko faced members of the House of Commons at a committee on Wednesday The second tranche of the financial settlement would only be sent to Aluko if she publicly stated that the FA was not institutionally racist That conduct was according to Aluko “bordering on blackmail” Not so according to FA chief executive Martin Glenn who followed Aluko in testifying at parliament with the player still in the Grimond Room behind her Yet the FA repeatedly undermined its own case and at times its credibility in the four-hour hearing It began with an element of contrition with the publication of a statement disclosing a barrister had finally concluded that Sampson did direct racially offensive jokes at Aluko and teammate Drew Spence on a separate occasion in 2015 There was even a public apology to the players But once the inquisition by legislators began the FA’s stance shifted The executive team went on the attack – against the questions and others within English football – while repeatedly praising their own work and sacrifices in an attempt to deflect the blame and shift the session onto unrelated subjects Glenn was undermined when he distanced himself from comments in a newspaper interview last month that barrister Katharine Newton was chosen to conduct the FA investigation because she was black – an appointment that would have been illegal under discrimination laws “It’s not a pack of lies but it’s an embellishment” Glenn said It wasn’t the wisest move for FA chairman Greg Clarke to place his fingers in his ears at one point to demonstrate his need to avoid being party to some of Aluko’s complaints Nor should Clarke have called accusations of institutionalized racism and bullying “fluff” – a remark the chastened chairman quickly withdrew when its offensive nature was highlighted Committee member Jo Stevens a member of the opposition Labour Party called it “disgraceful” after having a day to deflect on Clarke’s dismissive tone And yet while legislators like Stevens urged Clarke to “consider his position” there were no outright calls for resignations or firings from the committee members or any significant figures across football on Thursday There was a tame response too from the government “I hope the FA learns lessons from this whole sorry saga” sports minister Tracey Crouch said “to ensure that all in the sport and the wider public have faith in their processes and procedures” The FA Board still appears to retain the faith in Clarke and Glenn who are trying to weather the storm with the organization focused on the men’s World Cup in Russia in less than eight months But trouble looms on the horizon particularly as Sampson explores a case of wrongful dismissal against the FA The coach who led England to the semifinals of the 2015 World Cup and Euro 2017 was ultimately removed from his post last month over inappropriate conduct with players in a previous job before being hired by the FA in 2013 Even that case was handled shoddily by the FA with Sampson cleared to remain in his post in 2015 after the allegations were initially removed and only dismissed based on a re-examination of evidence in the midst of the growing flare-up over Aluko’s complaints In February a vote of no confidence in the FA was passed in the House of Commons albeit with only a handful of members in attendance That vote followed criticism of the FA’s decision-making functions by several former senior executives including ex-chairman David Bernstein “This is an accident that’s been waiting to happen” Bernstein reflected Thursday on the Sampson case “The organization is still institutionally lost in the past” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App

seriously not only because it is the product of six months of reflection (as early as October 2013 the party had launched a website inviting suggestions from citizens for drafting it) but also because of what it does not say If the party could wait for the first day of polling to make it public an unprecedented move suggesting that voters did not need to know the programme of the main contender for power to make up their mind it is not only because its leaders did not want to tie their hands in case of victory but also because they did not have concrete policies to propose — or preferred to remain vague on that front in order to emphasise their political agenda The paradox is difficult to ignore even though thinktanks (which are supposed to be policy-oriented) have not noticed it The BJP like most of its supporters generally considers that India has been badly affected by the “decision and policy paralysis” of the UPA as the party manifesto says In contrast it claims the “hallmarks” of its “governance model” would be among other things “policy driven” Indeed “policy” usually with a capital “P” is one of the words most frequently used by the authors of this “programme”: “BJP will initiate the New Health Policy” the BJP will “re-visit the policy framework for investments both foreign and domestic to make them more conducive” “BJP will adopt a ‘National Land Use Policy’” the BJP will “Come out with a responsible and comprehensive ‘National Energy Policy’” “We will set in place national policies on critical natural resources like coal minerals spectrum etc — spelling out in black and white how much should be utilised at what time and space” The BJP is obviously eager to implement clear-cut policies and that’s what India needs for sure But shouldn’t citizens know “in black and white” what these policies will be before casting their vote That’s largely what democracy is about after all And that’s where the BJP manifesto is not meeting the expectations of those who make the effort to read its 52 pages Most of it is made up of demagogic incantations For instance the BJP commits itself to “a comprehensive strategy for bringing the Indian police at par with international standards” which is definitely a good intention but how would its government achieve this goal The “BJP is committed to initiate electoral reforms to eliminate criminals” but which ones (I mean which policies) Using an even more emotional overtone the manifesto explains that the BJP “will not only empower our citizens with the ability to dream; we will enable them with the capability to actualise their dreams” For that many formulae are mobilised Let’s look at the way the manifesto deals with the rural and the urban questions for instance On one hand “Through the idea of Rurban we will bring amenities to our rural areas while retaining the soul of the village” and on the other “We will initiate building 100 new cities; enabled with the latest in technology and infrastructure — adhering to concepts like sustainability walk to work etc” To reform hundreds of thousands of villages and to build dozens of cities “ideas” and “concepts” may not be sufficient The 52 pages are thin on statistics Apart from the growth rate of India under the UPA which is presented as 48 per cent when it is at least 2 percentage points higher on an average the only other statistic put forward is the share of the GDP that the BJP government would devote to education — 6 per cent a rather timid target If the BJP election manifesto does not say much about what the party would do if it was in a position to govern India its silences are sometimes very telling Its treatment of the corruption issue is a case in point The “Corruption” section of the manifesto is only a few lines long It explains that the BJP “will establish a system which eliminates the scope for corruption” through “public awareness” (but the mass demonstrations of 2011 have shown that people were rather aware of the problem) “technology-enabled e-governance” “system-based policy-driven governance” “rationalisation and simplification of the tax regime” and “simplification of the processes and procedures at the state levels” Such recipes call to mind the recommendations of the World Bank in the 1980s when it basically told India to get rid of the licence raj to make corruption vanish It has flourished instead Interestingly the only reference to the Lokpal is to be found in another section and even then it is minimal: “We will set-up an effective Lokpal institution” How The attitude of the BJP in the Delhi state assembly in February this year does not help us respond to this question nor does the fact that before last December Gujarat had not had a Lokayukta for 10 years But the most puzzling paradox lies elsewhere While the BJP does not say how it will concretely change India it is committed to “total change” and uses a phrase Mao Zedong coined in the 1950s: the “Leap Forward” How do you change totally if not through policies Through politics The first and last sections of the BJP manifesto are the most enlightening in this regard The foreword by Murli Manohar Joshi emphasises that the “multi-dimensional crisis” in which India finds itself requires “urgent solutions” — among these the most pressing is “to arrive at a consensus about the ‘Idea’ of India” The need of the hour is to “Pick up the thread from the point where the continuum of our civilisational consciousness was lost and reorient the polity in consonance with those strong points of Indian psyche which will be the engine for our future glory” For understanding what the mainstays of this “innate vitality” are the reader has to wait for the section on “Cultural heritage” starting with the evocation of the Ram Mandir where the “BJP reiterates its stand to explore all possibilities within the framework of the Constitution to facilitate the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya” The other structure that has been demolished there may need to be rebuilt too but there is no reference to it even though the manifesto has one section on the need to promote “equal opportunity” for minorities and to “Curate their rich heritage and culture — maintenance and restoration of heritage sites; digitisation of archives; preservation and promotion of Urdu” Some cultural heritages seem to be more equal than others

the vocalist chose raag Multani for his opening performance the same afternoon raag which his aunt Kalapani Komkali had chosen for the same stage in 2012 Any initial hesitation he may have displayed during the introduction when he modestly acknowledged that he would ‘attempt’ to put up a good show vanished soon and Komkali was completely in command the minute he opened with the redolent afternoon raag with a vilambit khayal composition He was accompanied by Suyog Kundalkar on harmonium Prashant Pandav on tabla and Ramanuj Vipat and Vinay Chitrav on tanpura Exploring the entire range of Multani

because it is evening and her child hasn’t returned home yet For the second half he chose the composition Lade bigde in raag Nandkedar before concluding with a traditional Maalwa composition rediscovered by his father Pandit Mukul Shivputra With a voice that reminded one of his father and a technique of stirring up a fresh combination of notes every now and then reminiscent of Kumar Gandharva the young artiste received thunderous applause at the end of his performance In her introduction before the performance the second artiste of the day was called the ‘Mozart of South Asia’ The winner of 2017’s Sangeet Natak Academy Award Kala Ramnath who graced the stage with her ‘singing violin’ lived up to the description An Indian classical violinist from the Mewati gharana whose album Miles to India won a Grammy nomination the artiste chose Shyam Kalyan an evening raag of the Kalyan family Striking up an awe-inspiring jugalbandi with Pandit Vijay Shamsi on the tabla they gradually launched into a full fledged sawaal jawaab Returning to the Sawai stage after 12 years Ramnath made every minute count as the audience kept on applauding and a wave of waah was heard as she hit the high notes with practiced ease To end her mesmerising performance she responded to the audience’s demand and chose a semi-classical kajri dhun The next artiste was Kaushiki Chakraborty a torchbearer of the Patiala Gharana tradition and daughter of Pandit Ajoy Chakraborty She is known for her repertoire that covers khayals and thumris in light classical style In the hours leading up to her performance she had kept her fans engaged with a steady banter on Twitter Her Twitter followers had tried to guess as well as gave suggestions about the raag of her choice for the Sawai stage She kept the audience guessing till the last minute when the first chord was struck and the melody of raag maaru bihaag filled the arena As she launched into the bandish of her choice Ratiya mitwaa mai kaise au tere paas she showcased the range power and sensuousness of her voice Her voice spiralled with amazing speed slowing down at certain junctures to emphasise the nuances and subtly interacting with Satyajit Talwalkar on tabla Next came a jhap-taal bandish in raag Bageshri a night raag: Yaad karo dhyan dharo Mata Saraswati Not shying away from complicated taans through which she explored the vast expanse of the raag Chakraborty’s gayaki was intense But it was a thumri Yaad piyaa ki aayi… that she chose as her closing song which prompted audience members to give her a standing ovation Saving the best for the last the night concluded with the doyen of Mewati gharana Pandit Jasraj performing at the mahostav The octogenerian musician who had other artistes touching his feet to seek blessings as he climbed on to the stage greeted the audience with his customary Jai Ho When the maestro sung the first note of the Lord Krishna shlok Mangalam Bhagwan Vishnu those who were standing
