Sunday taunted the Centre wondering whether it wants to appoint "BJP lawyers" as High Court judges instead of adhering to the collegium’s recommendations Arvind Kejriwal Reuters In a series of tweets Kejriwal termed as "shocking" the Centre’s attempt to "interfere" and "stall" the functioning of the judiciary "Why centre not clearing names suggested by SC collegium Does centre want BJP lawyers to

necessary Published: August 2 2013 12:04 am Related News Academic economists who have written about economic reforms in India tend to see the process as an acceptance of technical recommendations which have long been advocated by economists Howeverreforms dont happen just because there is a professional consensus They happen when the political leadership of the time decides to back these initiatives In a democracyreform be it of economic policy or of institutions is essentially a political process We have to build a sufficiently wide political consensus in favour of the policies we wish to adopt Having a parliamentary majority alone is not enoughbecause there are differences within parties For reforms to be credibleit is necessary that a wide cross-section of society should understand the need for and accept the policy changes that a government wishes to introduce The 1991 reforms did not happen suddenly They were preceded by a push in that direction in the second half of the 1980sby the Congress government under the leadership of Shri Rajiv Gandhi The Congress manifesto in the 1991 election also gave a very strong reform message When the Congress government was formed in 1991under Prime Minister Shri Narasimha Raohis leadership and support for reforms was equally crucial After 1996we had a non-Congress government with Left Front supportunder the leadership of Shri Deve Gowda and laterShri IK Gujral The policies we had implemented in 1991-96 were not only not reversedthey were in many respects even taken forward This must have been helped greatly by the fact that Shri Chidambaramas Union finance minister in the United Front governmentcontributed to a continuity of policy But I also like to think that it reflects the fact that beneath the loud disagreement and debate that is characteristic of democraciesthere is also a growing consensus In one of the essays in this bookMontek Ahluwalia has given a detailed account of Shri Chidambarams role in the trade policy reforms of 1991 Montek draws six lessons from that experience… I think these lessons are worth recounting Firstfor reforms to take placeministers must be willing to give up their discretionary power in support of a system with much less discretion Montek rightly says that Shri Chidambarams readiness to give up his discretionary power was absolutely critical Secondthere has to be a willingness to take political risks in launching new initiatives Thirdbureaucratic hesitation is not an impediment if the political leadership is clear about what it wants done Fourthit is easier to bring about change when there is sufficient prior discussion and a reasonably wide consensus Fifthone must adopt a holistic approach to reformrather than pursue piecemeal efforts Finallyour system has the capacity to act quickly when it decides to In those dayschanges in import policy needed the approval of the commerce ministerthe finance minister and the prime minister These lessons are relevant today because we are at a critical juncture Over the past decadewhen the economy had absorbed the full benefit of the reforms that began in 1991our economy has grown at close to 75 per cent Our growth rate has slowed down to 5 per cent in 2012-13 But this should not make us feel disheartened and imagine that we have slipped back to our old growth path The last couple of years have been challenging not only for Indiabut for the whole world We must now view this as a short-term deceleration Our government is determined to once again accelerate the pace of change Once againwe will prove the naysayers and Cassandras of doom wrong The policy agenda for bringing back Indias growth momentum has been outlined in detail in the 12th Plan We have to deal with the macroeconomic imbalances that have developed We also have major challenges in key sectors such as energywaterand land Infrastructure is today a key constraintwith many large projects held up The Cabinet Committee on Investment that we have set up gives us a mechanism to overcome bureaucratic delays Urbanisation is a new challenge that deserves greater attention Our strategy must not only aim at faster growthbut must also ensure that the growth processes are more inclusive There are many policies that can help achieve this objective This also calls for special programmes to meet the needs of hitherto excluded sectionsespecially the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribesthe OBCs and minorities We have many such programmes These need to be expanded and made more effective An important achievement of the past five years is that growth has been much more inclusive Agricultural growth has accelerated from 24 per cent in the 10th Plan to 36 per cent in the 11th Plan Poverty is falling fastereven though there are disputes going on among the professional colleagues about the pace of change Per capita consumption in real terms in rural areas has increased four times faster from 2004-05 than it did earlier The erstwhile BIMARU states are doing much better I have no doubt that we will deliver results and once again place India on the path of high and socially inclusive growth The people of India expect this The world expects and awaits this Let me assure youwe will not disappoint I do not underestimate the task before us As the 12th Plan points outour preferred scenario of

Thyagaraja But no one would have imagined that British popstar Ed Sheeran’s chart-busting Shape of You would come so close to the raag so much so that the ascends and descends would begin to sound similar Sheeran possibly had no idea that the note patterns matched that of the permutations and combinations that can be created with Abheri But Minneapolis-based software engineer Vinod Krishnan did He suggested a cover be done and decided to work with Indian Raga a music education start-up founded at MIT “Sheeran’s song since it came out in January 2017 has become extremely popular Upon multiple

which has already garnered over four million views Krishnan can be seen crooning bol taans and mridangam bols along with singer Aditya Rao US-based composer digital artiste and tech enthusiast Mahesh Raghvan has included interludes in the piece by playing an Ipad like a continuum fingerboard and created musical slides which are so pertinent to Carnatic classical music A scene from Ed Sheeran’s

yellow turbans to raise money for multiple sclerosis Call it a coincidence or a careful strategy Sheeran’s visiting India in November and tickets for the Mumbai concert are eagerly awaited In creating a song that certainly wasn’t written for the critics — the guitar loops and fusion of sounds reek of a clear marketing strategy from a musician whose lyrics in the piece are not even close to striking

Sen Gupta | New Delhi | Published: October 11 2015 4:00 am Illustration: CR Sasikumar Top News It is actually very easy to get children interested in history As I make my claim I can clearly see parents and teachers sitting up and beginning to shake their heads in fierce disagreement They all struggle to make school children learn their history lessons and they know I am wrong so very wrong The problem is that they are looking at history from the single point of our school textbooks and the problem is self-evident The syllabus is huge because it is set by university professors who have little contact with children and have no sense of what a 12-year-old can comprehend or enjoy learning It doesn’t help that we have 5000 years of history to be covered in mere three years and our educationists want everything from the conquests of Samudragupta to the Minto-Morley Act done in detail So the textbooks struggle to cover the material and end up reading like instruction manuals Oddly enough the same children love historical fiction are mesmerised by historical films and television serials (that are often full of factual errors) and have kept Amar Chitra Katha in the bestseller list for decades Now let me tell you how easy it can be I once sat in the library of a school in Delhi for three months and wrote a book with the chaotically enthusiastic support of the students Here twice a week I waited for classes VI-IX to come and surround me with questions comments and lunatic plot lines The book was to be a sequel to an earlier novel set in Ashokan times The deal was that the students who came up with the best plot twists would have a character named after them This meant they had to learn everything about Emperor Ashoka I lugged in giant tomes — by Romila Thapar Radhakumud Mookerjee AL Basham — books that make people twitch nervously and my baby novelists were huddled over them as if they were Harry Potter novels Their favourite was Roshan Alkazi’s Ancient Indian Costumes where they discovered the magical world of turbans dhotis and swords Soon the library notice board had maps showing the route taken by Prince Mahindra and the plot line began to emerge around an evil conspiracy to kill him Every day I was bombarded with notes and the literary ones sat solemnly copy editing the chapters To their satisfaction they found lots of spelling mistakes When one history teacher wanted to join the game she was shouted out My favourite plot idea was secretly scribbled in the corner of my notebook by an anonymous genius It said “And Ashoka got married and lived happily ever after” Ashoka would have loved that I know nothing about pedagogy or even the curriculum but I had four classes passionately discussing religious tolerance and non-violence and isn’t that the real reason why we study history In a discussion with another group of children we began with the story of what Mahatma Gandhi carried in his khadi bag I mentioned the fact that he did not like wearing his false teeth and only used them to eat From there we floated off to talk about Satyagraha and soon they were furiously debating ahimsa and swadeshi Then we happily swerved back to the false teeth and they all decided that Gandhiji needed a better dentist I once wrote a book about how people lived in the past — what they ate; the clothes they wore; the houses they lived in; the games children played and how they travelled The idea came when a child asked me if they had homework in ancient India and to my embarrassment I did not know History has to be taught as a story where we start at a human level and then weave in the historical information For instance if a lesson on Vijayanagar began with a funny story about Krishnadeva Raya and Tenali Raman their faces will sharpen with interest and they will immediately pay attention Then the facts and dates will go down like the best sugar-coated pill I so wish people really knew our history and about our real achievements in handicrafts agriculture mathematics astronomy medicine literature architecture and the arts How many people know that we were among the first to weave cloth and grow rice; that we developed the modern system of numbers that was called Hindusat; that without the Indian concept of zero we could not have computer programmes or that we are the original chess grandmasters Where in Europe can you find anything even close to the magic of the Rig Veda and the Mahabharata If we did no one would have to look at Ganesha and discover plastic surgery in ancient India or invent planes called pushpak rathas Just to give you one example the great mathematician and astronomer Aryabhata worked out that the earth moved on its axis; explained that the lunar eclipse was not about Rahu swallowing the moon; calculated the radius of the earth; developed a formula to measure the area of the triangle and the value of the pi Children will be excited to learn that he did all this around the 6th century CE years well before Copernicus and Galileo So why are we looking for proof of our scientific achievements in the Hanuman Chalisa I agree that the West is very good at ignoring the achievements of other civilisations but we don’t need to equate legends and mythology with history to be proud of what we are Subhadra Sen Gupta writes on Indian history and culture

prestigious Sydney Opera House on a cold July evening was quite palpable After all the audience that walks its hallowed halls is infamous for being unforgiving When the serene yet hyperactive Sir Simon Rattle who on most days conducts the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra placed himself on the rostrum moments before he was to call the orchestra at hand “an international treasure” one knew that the concert would go on to become The Australian World Orchestra (AWO) which played this prestigious concert — the music of which resonated in a cathedral-like setting — will hold four concerts in India in October The baton will change though The orchestra in India will come under the meticulous instruction of renowned conductor Zubin Mehta who played with them in 2013 in Australia and was impressed by “their organic way of playing music” In the Capital the concert will take place at Indira Gandhi Stadium on October 30 before which there will be performances in Mumbai and Chennai “This is the first time such a large number of Australian artistes will tour India Also we are melding the two countries if you see While Zubin (Mehta) is one of your biggest cultural imports this orchestra is ours” says Gabrielle Thompson CEO of the orchestra Being held as part of a cultural Memorandum of Understanding between the two countries the concert in October also marks Mehta’s return to India after being embroiled in much controversy over the concert in Kashmir’s Shalimar Bagh in 2012 Mehta who is based out of Tel Aviv these days and conducts the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is known for his terrifyingly guarded yet completely hypnotic manner of conducting an orchestra mostly without the score a fact that is upheld and feared by concert artistes “There is this stately demeanour to him If he just looks at us from the corner of his eye we know he wants more” says violinist Asmira Woodward Page who also plays as a chamber musician with String Orchestra of New York City What’s interesting about the AWO is the fact that all 105 Australian musicians are employed by some of the finest orchestras world over and come together for just a season in Australia “It’s like this wonderful reunion Some of them have known each other for ages and the camaraderie shows in the music In sheet music where you aim for precision along with an organic style of playing that becomes important” says Alexander Briger Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the orchestra When in India the orchestra will play compositions by Brahm Schubert and Mozart While Wagner because of his anti-semitic music isn’t played in Israel Mehta has chosen to give it a miss in India too However like his last India concert where he had the Bavarian Orchestra play Kashmiri folk there are chances that Indian concert halls may resonate with surprise short Indian compositions towards the end Mehta who has invited the artistes to India says “I was quite impressed by the technical prowess of this orchestra when I conducted them in Sydney in 2013 It is therefore with greatest joy that I have invited this orchestra to my country” “Collaborations where the two art forms collide are extremely interesting and give both the sides a chance to improvise The maestro (Mehta) hasn’t told us about that yet But he can throw a surprise” says Belinda McFarlane principal violinist with AWO who is based out of Britain and primarily tours with the London Symphony Orchestra She however isn’t worried about the oral legacy of Indian music vis- a-vis the understanding of written down western classical music adhered to till the last syllable “I think the integrity of an art form is universal So for me even if a country like India and its music is steeped in oral legacy the music that the orchestra will play will appeal to the people because at the end of the day it is all about the seven notes” she adds The orchestra will play in Delhi Mumbai and Chennai between October 25 and 30

them a place in the final "Venus was serving good even in the first set She started returning better in the second as opposed to the first set and that’s why she’s a champion" the 29-year-old from

factors in the closely contested match "It’s definitely a tough loss no doubt I think we were playing really good tennis throughout the match but Venus really stepped up her game and that made the difference Once they got the momentum in the second set we managed to get back in the tie-break But it was a toss-up Obviously they were playing with much confidence and it gets tougher when you get to the super tie-break" he said "In the first set it was going all our way but these things happen in tennis The thing do is to rest and recover well and come back again as positive as we can because
