Sherpur,claiming figures of five for 64 as Ahmad Malick fell three runs short of a deserved ton for the rail-men. But,there is no real provision for any penalty if these policies are not followed This can be done in cases like the one at Ryan International School If one or two schools are asked to pay a large amount as a fine then other institutions will be more likely to follow the rules properly In the present situation there is no fear of the law Even if an FIR is lodged for how many years will parents fight the case The entire process involving the police investigation the trial court level and appeals in higher courts can even take twenty years Further there is a possibility of the child being victimised by the school if the parents fight a legal battle I do not think that the provision of disaffiliating schools for lapses will act as a deterrent If the authorities try to disaffiliate the school such a move will be opposed by parents as the education of their children will be affected Rather than disaffiliating schools imposing penalties will act as more effective deterrents Further whenever the authorities come up with a new policies they must come up with a checklist which needs to be followed by all schools with respect to infrastructure and safety measures These could include the number of toilets which need to be there structural audit fire audit etc Often schools principals themselves do not have proper knowledge about these stipulations The government should ask NGOs to keep a check on whether the checklist is followed Such measures can help make schools more accountable and safe The author is president Forum for Fairness in Education As told to Neerad Pandharipande By: Reuters | London | Updated: March 15 2016 7:53 pm Cuban hip-hop band Krudas Cubensi (Photo: Facebook/Krudas Cubensi) Related News According to Odaymara Cuesta from the lesbian Cuban hip-hop band Krudas Cubensi there’s a gay person in every family in Cuba But a lot needs to change in Cuba before its lesbian gay bisexual and transgender (LGBT) citizens are able to expose their true identity without fear of discrimination in an island nation once notoriously hostile toward them she said “Cuba is a very misogynistic country and it’s hard to be a lesbian or queer person here” Cuesta told the Thomson Reuters Foundation by phone from Havana “Even though the new generation is more open and tolerant we need to be better educated about same-sex relationships and LGBT rights” In the early years after 1959 revolution homosexuality was seen as counter-revolutionary and Cuba’s socialist rulers sent gay people to correctional labor camps But gay rights in Cuba have taken great strides in recent years In 2010 former president Fidel Castro said he regretted the discrimination faced by gay Cubans after his revolution saying it was a “great injustice” His niece Mariela Castro daughter of current President Raul Castro has been at the forefront of promoting gay rights and last year led activists in a mass symbolic wedding to promote acceptance of gay and transgender Cubans In 2014 the National Assembly approved a labor law that banned discrimination based on sexual orientation and free gender reassignment surgery has been available since 2008 For Cuesta and Olivia Prendes of Krudas Cubensi music is another way of promoting gay rights “Music is a very important tool in educating our people and letting them know who we are and what we do” Prendes said “Through music we fight for our rights” Prendes said that when the band released their first album in 2003 the hip-hop community in Cuba was shocked because it was the first time anyone talked about lesbians or feminism “The hip-hop community is mainly straight and focused on social issues” she said “Straight people in Cuba don’t understand that people like us exist” Prendes admitted that for her and Cuesta who now divide their time between Cuba and the United States their fame has made it easier to be gay “More people know us and admire us and are curious about who we are” she said But in small towns and the countryside Cubans identifying as gay are not open about their sexuality said Prendes “It is not easy to be openly queer and many people are living in the closet” she said “The reality has deprived our people from pride and sexual liberation Hate speech is everywhere” Prendes said she was hoping that more music-loving Cubans would change their attitudes towards LGBT people by listening to their music “We’re still fighting for our rights we’re still fighting for equal marriage equal rights for LGBT people” she said Elsewhere in Latin America Argentina and Uruguay have legalized same-sex marriage as has Mexico City but in Cuba marriage remains a distant goal For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | London | Published: April 7 2016 11:04

passport He has also sought permission from the court to travel to Saudi Arabia for Haj/Umrah pilgrimage for four weeks Kaskar had approached the high court after the passport authority rejected his

notification deals with the period during which the passport can be issued to such a person “We however feel it appropriate to permit the applicant to apply for a fresh passport by relying on the notification dated August 25 1993 The passport authorities shall decide the said application in accordance with law and on its own merits and if they find that the applicant is entitled to be issued a

More Top NewsYangon: More than 2000 Rohingya have massed along Myanmar’s coast this week after trekking from inland villages in Rakhine state to join the refugee exodus to Bangladesh state media reported on Saturday They follow more than half a million fellow Rohingya who have emptied out of northern Rakhine in a single month fleeing an army crackdown and communal violence the United Nations says amounts to "ethnic cleansing" The journey to Bangladesh is fraught with danger for the stateless Muslim minority who have faced decades of systematic oppression in mainly Buddhist Myanmar File image of Rohingya refugees fleeing Myanmar Reuters After fleeing burning villages they say were set alight by soldiers and Buddhist mobs more than 100 Rohingya have drowned in the scramble to cross the Naf river that divides the two countries The latest boat capsize on Thursday has left some 60 feared dead with 23 bodies — mainly of children — brought to shore as dozens more remain missing The crowds building up along Rakhine’s coast hail from the same inland area — Buthidaung township — as many of those who perished in the boat tragedy "Starting on Tuesday they left their region claiming that they felt insecure to remain because they were now living in a sparsely populated area as most of their relatives had left for Bangladesh" the state-run Global New Light of Myanmar reported More than half had gathered on a beach near Lay Yin Kwin village the report said with photos of women and children clustered together on the sand as security officers looked on It was not clear if or how they would complete the journey to Bangladesh where the unprecedented influx of refugees has unfurled a separate humanitarian crisis as aid groups struggle to meet their vast needs The report said officials tried to assure the Rohingya of their safety in Myanmar but villagers said they "would still like to go to Bangladesh of their own accord" Chris Lewa from the Arakan project which closely tracks developments in Rakhine said economic deprivation and tensions with Buddhist neighbours appear to be the main forces driving the recent movements of Rohingya out of Buthidaung as opposed to fresh outbreaks of violence Crucial aid deliveries have been cut off from the impoverished area since 25 August when Rohingya militant raids on police posts triggered the military backlash that plunged northern Rakhine into crisis "The majority are mostly poor who are leaving and have nothing to eat" said Lewa "The Rakhine (Buddhist) villages nearby they are treating them very badly and because of that people are afraid to go out.they feel they cannot get out of their village to do any livelihood" The UN has previously reported that increasingly isolated Muslim communities in Rakhine are receiving regular threats from ethnic Rakhine Buddhists to leave the area Myanmar denies ethnic cleansing is underway and instead blames Rohingya militants for whipping up the violence which has also displaced tens of thousands of Rakhine Buddhists and Hindus The crisis has inflamed already blistering religious tensions and fuelled a dizzying array of claims and counter-claims from different ethnic groups The Muslim Rohingya have been the target of especially acute hatred in Myanmar where they are denied citizenship and are instead branded "Bengalis" — or illegal migrants who do not belong in the Buddhist-majority country Written by Desh Gaurav Chopra Sekhri | Published: September 24 2009 3:08 am Related News Indias triumphant return to the Davis Cup world group after years of futility is momentous not just for what it entails literallybut also for how well it bodes for the future of Indian tennis One of the few sports besides cricket that boasted a superstar trio with Leander PaesMahesh Bhupathi and Sania Mirzathe real story behind the defeat of South Africa is the depth and breadth of Indian tennisand over time we should have a team capable of being competitive with all but the very best Indian tennis is looking good againand it all starts with the stellar performance of Somdev Devvarmanbut that shouldnt be a surprise Somdev had been announcing his potential even as a freshman at the University of Virginiawhere he won the NCAA title twicewas a finalist as a sophomoreand chalked up seasons that were unprecedented in collegiate tennis in the US Since thenhe has racked up impressive victorieswith the highlight being the finals of the Chennai Openand qualifying for the main draw at the US Open Somdev is headed for good thingsbut what has been particularly gratifying this past weekend is the performance of the others Somehow lost in the euphoria has been Rohan Bopannawho fought the odds to bring India to within an inch of victory Yuki Bhambris dead rubber win over a seasoned campaigner in Van Der Merwe was also extremely impressive What was the most impressive however is that the overall victory came without Leanderand without the doubles pointafter Maheshin obvious painhad to concede the match This victory isnt a flash in the pan Indian tennis has been upwardly mobile for a while nowand the reasons are manifold Firstthere has been a sea change in the coaching and training methodology over the last five-seven yearsand increasingly more Indian coaches are compliant withand qualified as international level coachesas per the International Tennis Federation (ITF) grades and certifications The All India Tennis Association frequently schedules coaching camps and examinationsand this helps with the grassroots development of the game Technique and fitness are crucial in tennisand since coaching standards have improved significantlythe floor levels of basic coaching have become higher Similarlytraining facilities and the skill-sets that the AITA-affiliated trainers possess have vastly improved A focus on staminastrength and agility on a sustainable basisso as to prevent injuries while maximising abilityhas resulted in a vast improvement in the overall fitness levels of Indian tennis players Todaythe average Indian tennis player is strongerfitterand hits the ball harder than his or her counterpart would have five or seven years ago This is telling Somdev and others who compete at the highest level have not only held their own from a durability standpointin fact their fitness levels are exemplary Fitness and coaching apartthe biggest advantage an Indian player has today is the international exposure both in terms of ITF tournament schedules in Indiaas well as the ITF-sanctioned tours that juniors are frequently sent on by the AITA The paradigm shift in Indian tennis can be traced back to the time when the domestic circuit was scrapped and replaced with an ITF schedule where world-ranking ITF points are there for the asking for Indian players This was a gift horse in many ways The conditions in India are conducive to local players performing exceedingly wellhelping them earn points that in turn result in world-rankings Based on the points made in these tournamentsplayers become eligible for direct entries into tournaments held abroadsignificantly boosting their chances of performing well and improving their rankings Additionallyhaving a world-ranking gives a university in the US a clear-cut parameter for abilityand makes it easier for Indians today to earn tennis scholarships at American universities and compete at the NCAAs Somdev is a case in pointand there are others emulating his success The funds emanating from the Commonwealth Games sanctions and disbursements have also been put to good usewith camps routinely being held at academies across Indiaand with nearly 30-40 players being sent for a camp to IMGs Nick Bolletieri camp in Florida Alsomany players are being funded through these disbursements for tournaments abroadand it is this exposure that will ensure that Indian players can compete with anyone on a regular and sustainable basis The future is brightand

likely tested in London where he won bronze A retest is likely before an upgradation is announced (File Photo) Top News Four years after he won a bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt looks set to get an upgrade Dutt is likely to benefit following reports that samples collected from Besik Kudukhov who won silver returned positive for banned substances following retests done this year Retrospective testing isn’t new although Dutt might be the highest profile Indian beneficiary of it yet — even though the wrestler himself tweeted Wednesday that he didn’t really want the silver and valued humanism and sympathy more So how did Dutt’s 2012 medal suddenly change metals from bronze to silver Dutt originally won the 60 kg freestyle bronze He had lost in the first round to Russia’s Besik Kudukhov But as Kudukhov reached the final Dutt got a chance in the repechage pool which he won to claim a spot on the podium But on Monday night it emerged (reported by The Indian Express in its Tuesday edition) that Dutt was in line for a silver because samples collected from Kudukhov at London had tested positive for banned substances in retests conducted by the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) this year The IOC and UWW — the International Wrestling Federation — are however yet to confirm the findings reveal what Kudukhov tested positive for or award the silver to Dutt And why did the IOC suddenly feel compelled to test Kudukhov’s samples all over again 4 years after London and more than two-and-a-half years after he was already dead (in a car crash in Russia in December 2013) The IOC’s decision to retest samples from the 2008 and 2012 Olympics must be seen in the context of the unanimous approval of Olympic Agenda 2020 — the IOC’s strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic movement — by an IOC session in December 2014 On the anniversary of that session IOC president Thomas Bach had said everything possible must be done “to protect the millions of clean athletes around the world” In March 2016 the IOC announced a re-analysis of hundreds of samples from Beijing and London Retests were carried out in 4 waves — the first couple of waves targeting athletes who were likely to compete in Rio “The aim… is to prevent athletes who cheated in London or Beijing and got away with it because we didn’t have as advanced methods of analysis as we do now from competing in Rio de Janeiro” IOC Medical and Scientific Director Richard Budgett said A total 1243 samples from Beijing and London were chosen to be reanalysed in the first two waves The second and subsequent waves of retesting have focused on medallists as will subsequent testing Of the 30 PAAFs (provisional adverse analytical findings) from Beijing 23 were medallists As a medal winner Kudukhov’s sample was likely targeted for retesting even though the athlete himself was no longer alive But hadn’t Kudukhov already been tested during the 2012 Olympics Drug testing for PEDs (performance enhancing drugs) at the time of the Olympics is usually not a comprehensive affair By the time the Games end testers could be in possession of several thousand urine and blood samples Initial tests take place in the WADA accredited laboratory in the Olympic city Considering the large number of samples and the short duration of the Games not all samples will be tested for every possible drug Experts take educated guesses on which sets of athletes are more likely to use certain drugs and run tests accordingly For example tests to detect erythropoietin (EPO) will be run on endurance runners while tests for anabolic steroids will be run on strength athletes While Kudukhov may have been tested during the London Olympics it is possible that he was not tested comprehensively for the full range of possible performance enhancing drugs — or that he was using a drug for which a test did not exist then Okay and how long are samples preserved and up to when after the event can they be tested Because time constraints make it impossible to comprehensively test samples at the Olympics leftover urine and blood is refrigerated and taken to the Swiss Laboratory for Doping Analyses (LAD) in Lausanne Switzerland where they are stored in a locked freezer Under the new WADA code that came into effect in January last year the IOC can hold the bottles for up to 10 years — up from the 8 years until then — and can thaw the urine for a retest any time during that window This gives scientists a chance to identify more drugs and develop new tests to identify them; they can also develop more sensitive tests for residue — or metabolites — of drugs that are found in urine Can all Olympians expect to have to mandatorily undergo the retest Was Yogeshwar Dutt tested the first time Not all Olympians will have to worry about their urine samples being tested 10 years after they competed Several thousand samples are taken and maintaining such a massive collection is a logistical nightmare Storage requires extensive climate-controlled facilities and the inevitable contamination that will take place during the collection process and transport might invalidate a positive test “WADA will not store the sample of an athlete like Renjith Maheshwary (who ranked 30th in the men’s triple jump) from Rio but they will likely keep the sample of P V Sindhu (who won silver in the women’s badminton singles) for 10 years” said PSM Chandran a former Director of Sports Medicine Sports Authority of India As a bronze medallist Dutt’s samples were likely tested in London They would also have been kept secure in the LAD vault Indeed before the IOC confirms that he will receive the silver medal Dutt’s own sample will have to be retested to make sure it is clean And how common is the upgrading of medals following a failed dope test A number of athletes have been stripped of Olympic medals due to doping offences As such an equal number have been benefitted 19 athletes have been promoted to the gold medal 33 to silver and 43 to bronze following incidents when the original winner lost their medal after testing positive for PEDs Yogeshwar Dutt isn’t the first Indian to benefit — long jumper Anju Bobby George became the first Indian track and field athlete to win a gold in a major world event after international governing body IAAF upgraded her second place finish at the 2005 Monaco World Athletics Final to the top spot following a dope violation by Russian Tatyana Kotova who originally won gold The IAAF had reanalysed samples of the 2005 World Athletics Championships apparently in line with IOC’s decision to retest 8-year-old samples going back to the 2004 Athens Olympics in order to deter dope cheats George has also been pressing for a reallocation of medals in Athens — she originally finished sixth but was upgraded to fifth after Marion Jones’s suspension for drug use; however the two Russian athletes who won silver

in the Board as government candidates just a few days before the election These candidates were selected after the government suspended the primary membership of two directors — Mukesh Patel and
