infrastructure created with other cities in the United Kingdom Ideallya young city which builds from scratch once it gets the Olympics should look at sustainabilitysince it is creating everything from the inception stage That saidits admirable that London is trying to set an understated tone for the grandest stage in all of sportsdespite the challenges of having to deal with a bustling metropolis and outdated transportation systemsnot to forget an irate population that feels its tax money could be better used elsewhere The infrastructure has been created along lines that have not been tried and tested so far Democracy comes at a costand London will not have the breathing space that Beijing had for budget fluctuations and infrastructure enhancement For a tournament that boasts of being green and environment-friendlythe ongoing controversy around sponsorship by Dow Chemicals is hardly a ringing endorsement of such a project The Olympics rings are the second most lucrative and recognisable brand in the worldbehind only the Apple phenomenon People felt Beijing 2008 would be a hard act to top but the Olympics brand has grown by leaps and boundsand there can be no fathomable reason for this to change Although most Olympics have enabled a complete facelift for the cities that hosted themthis is hardly a pre-requisite for success In factin an era where the Commonwealth GamesDelhi 2010created a global furore with its inability to curb expenditure or justify infrastructure creationsustainable and low-key games may in fact be exactly what is required from the Olympics this year Howeverthe London games may get flak if they fail to keep the expenses within the budget or to dazzle with the no-frills aesthetic Especially since Rio de Janeirocentre of the new economic growth hubis preparing for back-to-back mega events the FIFA World Cup 2014 and the Rio Olympics 2016 But its time now for London 2012 to set the tone for muted splendour and understated legacies The

after being cleared by CBFC Sandipan Sharma Jan09 2018 17:02 48 IST Comment 0 Tweet Several years ago when Rajputs were demanding deification of Roop Kanwar — a young woman burnt on her husband’s funeral pyre in Rajasthan’s Deorala — some hotheads armed with swords surrounded former vice president Bhairon Singh Shekhawat at a railway station The Rajputs who were back then led by the some of the leaders currently threatening to burn down Rajasthan if Padmavat is released demanded that Shekhawat support their demand for getting Roop Kanwar declared ‘Sati Mata’ a deity Surrounded by a violent mob brandishing swords confronted by leaders of his own community Shekhawat could have taken the easier option of succumbing to the thugs perhaps even hijacking the agitation for glorification of a young woman killed by her family and community in the name of tradition But Shekhawat refused to give in to threats of violence and ostracism "My father died when we were young If my mother had become sati then I would not have been here No I will never support sati" Shekhawat then the leader of the opposition in the state assembly told the raucous Rajputs Stared down by him the mob scattered Deepika Padukone in a still from Padmavat How would have Shekhawat the man who single-handedly kept the BJP alive in Rajasthan for decades reacted to threats of violence by Rajput groups if Padmavat were released in Rajasthan My bet is he would have looked the thugs in the eye reprimanded them in his famous baritone and warned them of dire consequences for taking on the state Unfortunately as Shekhawat fans once proudly claimed Rajasthan has had just one Singh (lion) Since his death the state has been deprived of leaders with a mass appeal and moral rectitude and courage This lack of courage is evident in the way the state has bowed to the demands of Rajput hotheads for banning Padmavat This is not just about the diffidence of the state government that has genuflected to the Karni Sena and its cohorts leading the campaign against Padmavat There is a saying in India that the waqar (dignity) of sarkar (government) should be buland (high) But the Rajasthan government has surrendered its waqar ironically in the name of the dignity of a fictional character by banning the movie even when it has been cleared by the film certification board of India Clearly it doesn’t trust the censor board constituted by its own government at the Centre for taking the right decision The Karni Sena has been threatening to burn down theatres in Rajasthan if Padmavat is released By doing this it is putting a sword to the government’s neck In any other democracy in any other place where the Supreme Court and other constitutional bodies have rejected demands for a blanket ban the government would have come down with its full might on the Karni Sena Instead it has surrendered to threats and blackmail Rajputs are nearly ten per cent of the state It is difficult to believe that all of them subscribe to the politics of violence practised by the Karni Sena But the state government has banned the movie purportedly to defend the dignity of Rajasthan Unfortunately there is no bigger humiliation than running away from the fight for artistic freedom and India’s constitutional ethics at the sight of a handful of adversaries Such chicanery in the land of Rana Pratap Prithviraj Chouhan and Amar Singh Rathore is embarrassing The Congress too is watching in silence this cowardly surrender the attack on state’s dignity None of its leaders have come out in support of the film or stood up for freedom of expression There was a time when Congress leader Ashok Gehlot was known for taking brave decisions He had once ridiculed Chandraswami in public even when he enjoyed the patronage of Congress leaders like PV Narasimha Rao A few years ago he had shown exceptional courage in dealing strictly with Asaram and his followers when the self-proclaimed godman was accused of rape and blackmail That Gehlot of yore is now watching in silence Perhaps his conscience too is heavy with the burden of surrendering to Muslim hardliners when they demanded Salman Rushdie not be allowed to speak at the Jaipur Literature Festival According to Malik Mohammad Jayasi’s legend Padmini had shown jauhar (courage) by immolating herself rather than letting Alauddin Khalji attack her honour and dignity Clearly the Congress and the BJP both lack the jauhar to take on those attacking the foundations of Indian democracy This is the second time a film is being banned in Rajasthan A few years ago Rajputs hadJodha Akbar banned because they couldn’t bear to see a princess of Amber (near Jaipur) marry a Mughal emperor A few years after the ban the film became a regular on Indian TV channels turning the diktat into a joke The current ban on Padmavat won’t work either In the age of pirated prints free downloads anybody who really wants to watch a film can do so in the comfort of his home Ultimately the legend of Padmavati retold by Sanjay Leela Bhansali would become a household tale in India People may or may not remember the film But what would not be forgotten is how a state known for valor and countless fights for honour and dignity wiped out its own legacy with a collective show of cowardice Not just fictitious character like Padmavati even legends like Shekhawat would have been ashamed Published Date: Jan 09 2018 17:02 PM | Updated Date: Jan 09 2018 17:02 PM tags: #Bollywood #India #InMyOpinion #Karni Sena #Padmavat #Padmavati #Rajasthan govt #Top Stories

to an allegation that it was suppressing or manipulating data regarding the number of Class 1 seats on its primary education website affecting the enrolment of students from the weaker sections A bench of Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud issued notices to the Gujarat government and its Directorate of Primary Education on a petition seeking a direction for enrolment of 63610 students from the weaker sections and disadvantaged groups at the school entry level of Class 1 within 30 days The matter is likely to come up for hearing next week The court agreed to hear the matter after senior advocate Colin Gonsalves submitted that the issue was coming inthe way of the provisions of Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 Representational image of the Supreme Court of India Reuters The plea filed by Sandip Harshadray Munjyasara through advocate Satya Mitra has alleged that the state government was colluding with the schools to hide the data regarding the actual enrolment in violation of provisions of the act It also sought a direction to the state to give access to the relevant servers/computer containing the data to the forensic sciences laboratory here "in order to retrieve the data being suppressed or manipulated" The plea alleged that the modus operandi followed by the over 9000 schools in Gujarat to avoid ensuring that 25 percent of the strength of each class was of children belonging to the weaker sections was "to hide the strength of the class ie the total number of children in a particular class" "If the total strength is understated then the 25 percent is also understated and the schools are then able to violate the act by admitting very few children belonging to the weaker sections and disadvantaged groups" the plea said It claimed that the websites maintained by the Gujarat government showed thousands of schools hiding the student strength at the entry-level Class 1 to "such an extent that it made a mockery of the act" The petitioner moved the Supreme Court against the 20 April order of Gujarat High Court refusing to pass any direction to the authorities on his petition He sought a direction to the state government "to ensure that 63610 students from weaker sections and disadvantaged groups be enrolled in Class 1 forthwith and be allowed to fill up the online admission form for a period of 30 days" The plea sought direction to the secretary of the state’s department of education to disclose names and addresses of all schools in Gujarat with the sanctioned strength of Class 1 of each school and actual enrolment for the years 2014-2015 2015-2016 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 It said the enrolment list of general and weaker sections and disadvantaged group students enrolled school-wise for the specified years be also provided The petitioner claimed that his research has revealed that over 1000 schools had shown "zero strength" in Class 1 and over 4000 schools "less than 40 students" as the strength in the same class It was alleged that the Gujarat government after being exposed had "immediately taken steps to change their website data" and started "eliminating the incriminating data" particularly in respect of schools showing very low student strength at the entry level The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a case against Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav his wife Rabri Devi son Tejashwi Yadav and some others on the charge of corruption in awarding contracts for maintenance of Indian Railways’ hotels Later CBI additional
