provision of e-rickshaws is not a feasible solution Firstly many people might not be comfortable traveling around in rickshaws Secondly the MC will provide four rickshaws which is a small number to

joyful youth Cheap beer cans are flowing out of bins little paper plates on which vendors serve snacks are sprinkled around lamp posts like street art Some are playing guitar some singing The lightness of broke youth is moving The spectacle isnot as posh as in Paris or as expensive as in London But Berlin is again the capital of Europe — a symbol of Germany’s achievements since its

fuss is all about They get welfare money for pet dogs in Germany don’t they And doesn’t one euro cost 70 of our precious rupees But the project to achieve an ever-closer union of Europe had set itself noble if difficult goals The EU was fumbling in 2012 Today it is openly mocked Something unthinkable happened on June 30 A eurozone country defaulted on its loans On a continent where people are jailed for walking off from a bakery with a croissant without paying a sovereign borrowing billions of cheap money and not paying it back has hit the idea of Europe right on the frontal lobe Financial probity keeping a deal — these used to be inviolate ideas It’s hard to accept but harder to sympathise with Europe was meant to be a political union of equal democracies But the most powerful people in the EU are those running its unelected institutions like the European Central Bank There was a promise the continent would be a social union that would rise above the nastiness of nation-states But

Spain in 2012 costing several hundred billions The Irish have been stoically serving the loan shark The Spaniards have shown admirable penance after a housing binge that left the country with a third of all unsold houses in Europe It’s Greece that’s doing grievous damage to the European project both in terms of money and politics By now it’s clear that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his finance chief Yanis Varoufakis are the Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia of Greece — smart politicians who think they can revolt against the mathematics of running a government hold rallies against data But they are products of the European crisis The cause lies in Brussels and Berlin and in Paris The stink and suffering from Athens lie heaped on the doorstep of Merkel The EU was created by Germany and France to achieve two principal goals: Blunt fears of German power by making it serve the larger cause of peace and prosperity for all Europeans; and to eliminate the legacy of war between the two top continental powers However in this marathon Germany kept sprinting while the Greek and French fought over who got how much of their shrinking pizzas Not Germany’s fault but the reluctant leader has been called upon to solve the Greek crisis for years — and it has failed The options for the EU are stark and odious: Take massive losses on its lending and let Greece walk off as a loan cheat Or print mountains of euros and funnel billions more into a country that has just thrown a needless referendum in the face of its creditors To save the EU’s future Germany and its rich buddies must take the haircut as Punjab must for a struggling Bihar And to save the eurozone they must start the euro printing press It’s a terrible dilemma but it’s decision time The continent’s press as diverse as

Indians spread across India and abroad Shashank Udapurkar had closely watched Anna Hazare’s Jan Lokpal Bill movement at New Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan that had garnered nationwide support And just like any other Indian he was hugely affected by Hazare’s ideologies and his simplistic ways of bringing change in the society Meet the man who plays Anna Hazare in the biopic — Anna — scheduled to hit the screens on October 14 While the idea of making a biopic on Hazare’s life kept playing with his mind for sometime six months after the Ramlila Maidan movement Udapurkar began penning his script He was determined that unless he collected all the facts about the social activist’s life he will not meet him For nearly a year Udapurkar who has also directed Anna visited all the places associated with Hazare’s life — Bhingar (his birth place) Ralegan Siddhi (his ancestral village) and Aurangabad (where he took military training) After a year when he went to meet Hazare he expressed reluctance a couple of times However later he agreed to meet him for five minutes “The first question he asked me was why do I want to make a film on him and not on someone like Swami Vivekananda or Gandhi I explained it to him how he is a living legend and an inspirational figure for many youths When he saw my script he was quite impressed with my homework and asked me how did I manage to collection so much information about him Essaying Hazare on the screen wasn’t easy for Udapurkar “His strength is his simplicity With his simple ways he has been able to shake the system I had just one fear – Will I be able to justice to this role I realised that I could not achieve this by ‘acting’ I had to live like him and think like him Here my own ideologies which are quite similar to his (Hazare) helped me I have always felt strongly about the imbalance in the system and how it is associated with corruption Since I had also written the script it became easier for me to essay it on the screen” he says Other than Ralegan Siddhi Aurangabad and Bhingar Anna has been shot in nearly 50 locations such as Ladakh and Mizoram where Hazare was posted during his stint with the army The look of Ralegan Siddhi of 1975 was created in a rustic area in a village in Chikhaldhara in Vidarbha district As far as his look in the film is concerned a number of people have congratulated him on his “Anna-like looks” Achieving this though he says wasn’t easy given the huge age difference between him and Hazare While he is in his early 30s Hazare is 79 “We didn’t want to use prosthetics We wanted portray the physical and mental transformation naturally I was living with his life’s journey for such a long time that his mannerisms – the way he talked walked etc – everything came naturally to me” said

scare before managing to draw the first cricket Test against England who gained the psychological advantage after enjoying the upper-hand for the better part of the five days here Set a near impossible target of 310 in a minimum 49 overs India managed to reach 172 for six in 523 overs and were never really in the hunt Skipper Virat Kohli showed patience as he consumed 98 balls for his unbeaten 49 that had six boundaries and Ravindra Jadeja (32 not out) also hit some lusty blows after the sixth wicket had fallen at 132 Earlier Alastair Cook scored his 30th Test century with England declaring at 260 for 3 in the second innings That India had literally no chance of winning was ensured by a 180-run opening stand between Cook (130) and young teenager Haseeb Hameed (82) earlier in the day On a fifth day pitch that didn’t show considerable signs of wear and tear the Indian spinners barring a brief spell by Amit Mishra (2/60 in 13 overs) were rendered ineffective by Captain Cook who batted for nearly five hours to hit 13 fours in 243 balls The first Test once again raised serious questions about the ability of the Indian spinners to bowl on pitches that aren’t exactly rank turners Ashwin India’s premier strike bowler in all bowled 693 overs across two innings getting only 3 wickets giving away 230 runs Ravindra Jadeja got 3 wickets in 47 overs in the match while Mishra also had 3 scalps to this credit having bowled 363 overs but not before giving away as many as 158 runs On the day Ashwin at one point of time was bowling a negative line to both Cook and Ben Stokes (29 not out) outside the leg-stump in order to stem the flow of runs The other worrying aspect will be veteran opener Gautam Gambhir’s form and technical deficiencies that were again exposed in front of some quality seam bowling After succumbing to an in-swinger from Stuart Broad in the first innings the left-hander awkwardly dabbed at a short ball to be dismissed for zero in the slip cordon With Karun Nair waiting in the wings and KL Rahul back with a bang from injury scoring a 75 in today’s Ranji Trophy game the Indian team will need to figure out their winning combination at Visakhapatnam for the second Test starting November 17 It was a match where England’s spinners especially leg-spinner Adil Rashid (3/64 and 7 wickets in the match) looked much menacing extracting turn from a fifth day pitch It won’t be a happy sight for Indian team management that England spin trio of Rashid Zafar Ansari and Moeen Ali got 13 wickets in all compared to Indian toika which got 9 wickets The hosts had plunged into deep trouble against the visitors’ spin attack by losing three wickets in close sucession on either side of tea after losing opener Gambhir for a duck to be tottering at 71 for four The dismissals of first innings centurions Cheteshwar Pujara (18) and Murali Vijay (31) both falling to leggie Rashid followed by that of Ajinkya Rahane (1) off Moeen Ali for the second time to a poor shot But a determined Kohli and Ravichandran Ashwin (36) pulled the innings around with a crucial stand of 47 runs that also consumed 16 overs to keep India afloat and take the game into the last hour Although the hosts suffered some more pangs of anxiety at the fall of Ashwin who got carried away and got out and wicket keeper Wriddhiman Saha (9) Kohli kept calm and guided the team through the choppy waters By the start of the last hour of play in which 15 overs were to be bowled the duo had been together for 40 minutes with the score on 95 for 4 when Ashwin was dismissed He became overconfident after spanking left arm spinner Zafar Ansari for three fours and spooned a catch off the last ball of the over to covers Saha too departed by giving a return catch to leg-spinner Rashid in the 43rd over to raise England’s victory hopes Kohli who saw batsmen departing at the other end then piloted India to safety in the company of Jadeja who faced 33 balls as the seventh wicket pair batted out the remaining time as England bowled 33 overs extra before deciding to call it a draw Earlier Cook had produced yet another master class of batting to notch up his 30th Test hundred his sixth against India before declaring the team’s second innings 309 in front 36 minutes into the second session on the final day Cook scourge of India in past Test series and especially in their last visit four years ago atoned for his first innings failure to compile a well-crafted 130 and England declared on 260 for three at his dismissal Chasing the improbable target India advanced to 49 for two at tea needing 261 more runs to get in a minimum 31 overs in the last session of the Test with Vijay and Kohli were holding the fort The hosts commenced the second innings poorly by losing Gambhir for a duck fending awkwardly at Chris Woakes’ short and rising ball and guiding it straight to the second slip This left first innings centurions Vijay and one-down Cheteshwar Pujara to bat out till the end of the session They nearly did it albeit with some luck against the sharply spinning ball before Pujara fell leg before to leggie Rashid who was brought into the attack a little while earlier when playing back at the stroke of tea scoring 18 in a stay of 59 minutes TV replays suggested the ball to have pitched outside the leg stump but the Indians to everyone’s surprise did not review the decision of umpire Kumar Dharmasena The duo who put on a double century partnership in the first innings this time around could add only 47 Post tea India quickly lost Vijay caught bat-pad in the leg trap for the second time in the game off Rashid and Rahane who was bowled trying to cut Moeen’s off break The sudden loss of three top batsmen – Pujara Vijay and Rahane – in the space of just seven overs for the addition of three runs lifted England’s spirits and they attacked the Indians with a ring of fielders around the bat The tall off spinner who had a poor outing with the ball but scored an invaluable 70 in the first innings also survived a DRS call after he was full stretch to defend Ali’s sharply turning off break in over no 30 Thereafter he and Kohli batted out some crucial overs before Ashwin and next man Saha were dismissed in close succession to raise the visitors’ hopes again before they were dashed by the Indian captain and Jadeja In the morning leg-spinner Amit Mishra struck twice in the space of 11 balls after being brought on late into the attack but England carried on merrily after this twin strike to reach 211 for 2 at lunch with Cook setting a new benchmark by becoming the first overseas batsman to notch up five hundreds on Indian soil Cook playing in his 136th Test was level with West Indians Everton Weekes and Clive Lloyd and South African Hashim Amla with four centuries in India when the series commenced and went past the trio today He and his 19-year-old opening partner and Test debutant Haseeb Hameed who fell short of a coveted hundred by crafting his way to 82 put on a rollicking partnership of 180 for the first wicket Mishra broke the stand by removing Hameed in his very first over of the morning and added the prize scalp of Joe Root in his next over to bring some early life to the dreary proceedings The 235-minute stay of the 19-year-old batsman who struck a six and seven fours in his 177-ball innings ended when he knocked back a slog-sweep off a leg break bowled wide of off stump This was followed by the quick dismissal of Root who tried an almighty heave off Mishra’s leg break and top-edged to ‘keeper Saha who took a comfortable catch Cook and fellow-left hander Ben Stokes who struck a hundred in England’s first innings then came together to take the team to lunch without being separated and continued in the second session till the former departed and promptly applied the declaration Cook overnight 46 and 106 at lunch had 13 hits to the fence in his score of 130 before lofting Ashwin to long-off fielder Ravindra Jadeja and providing the off spinner who bowled economically with his only wicket of the innings In all the visiting team skipper had batted for nearly five hours and faced 243 balls For all
