determined not to fall or fail A hot favourite to win in women’s single sculls the 19-year-old sparkling young talent of Indian rowing had two early races where she wasn’t tested and is gunning to repeat her Nationals-winning performance from Bhopal Her father is a serving officer who was posted at Pune in 2014 when the 5’11 girl decided to start rowing at the Army Rowing Node – India’s only Olympic-level course Having trained with some of India’s elite rowers at the country’s best facilities available the teenager is hoping her handy arm-span that comes with the good height will guide her to an encore “I used to be a basketball player but dad came to CME and wanted me to take up an individual sport I was blessed to find the country’s best facility and decided to give it a shot” Yamini says She’s benefitted from India’s top coaches who’ve all raced for the Army the country’s traditional powerhouse that contributes a bulk of the national squad Her first row she claims packed in all the “very stupid” things that a beginner could be guilty of “I started in a doubles boat and couldn’t understand any of the technical instructions that were coming my way I tumbled off seven times on my first day in single sculls and have learnt every mistake” she laughs even as she aims for a national record depending on the wind and water conditions on Friday Yamini had realised that her event had possibly the narrowest boat an individual could squeeze into and she’s worked her way gaining experience in perfecting her technique which sees her dominate the Nationals scene now She’s learnt from the masters in the Army and jokes that making new mistakes every time has chiselled her stroke and mental strength At the Bhopal Nationals she was two boat lengths behind the leader but pushed hard on the last stretch to win what was a phenomenal race “I’m very lucky to train with elite Army rowers here but I have great respect for Punjab’s Navneet Kaur and Orissa’s Sanjukta di who are experienced rowers” she says mapping out her competition Navneet holds India’s best timings on the ergometer currently (7:22 min) while Yamini is close behind on 7:48 “Indian men have a glorious

when they face an improved Kerala Blasters FC in the league stages of Indian Super League in Kolkata on Tuesday Placed third with 18 points from 12 matches the inaugural edition champions can secure a top-four finish with a draw but a bigger concern for coach Jose Molina is that they have only been able to get past Delhi Dynamos FC at home this season ATK have two more home matches left in the league stage The Kolkata side will face Pune City FC in their last home match on December 2 and prior to that Molina has made his intentions clear “I’m sure you will always like a 5-0 or 5-1 result Not just against Kerala but against all teams But even if we win 1-0 everyone will like it as well The most important thing is to win” Molina told reporters ahead of their penultimate round match of the league ATK incidentally enjoy a superior head-to-head record against both Kerala Blasters and NorthEast United FC while only one of those team can overtake second placed Delhi Dynamos’ points tally as they battle amongst themselves in the concluding league clash Based on current form ATK will be favourites to become the third team to book their place “The work that these players have been doing since day one gives me confidence They are working really hard They are improving They are trying to do their best and help the team” said Molina ATK scored a last-gasp 2-1 victory against FC Goa in their last match It was a match they dominated and deserved to score more goals a fact that was emphasised by the Spanish coach “We had a great match in Goa We could have scored more goals but I think the players now are not bothered about anyone It doesn’t matter which teams is in front of us It’s all the same We try to dominate the game defend well and score as many goals as possible” he said Going into their last two league games ATK are sweating on the fitness of star midfielder Sameehg Doutie besides Stephen Pearson and Lalrindika Ralte Down with fever the South African mideo did not train with the team today while Lalrindika and Pearson have not yet recovered from injuries Kerala Blasters have done well to reach the fourth spot for now after collecting just a point from their first three matches A win for Kerala Blasters will take them closer to the semi-final spot although they will not be guaranteed a top four place as they are dependent on head-to-head record of teams who can reach 21 points like ATK Delhi Dynamos and NorthEast United FC “We feel we are in a decent position (to qualify) and Kolkata will feel the same There is an awful lot to play for tomorrow (Tuesday) night We are looking forward to it It’s coming to the meaty end of the season You need to try and play your very best (during) these last couple of games” Kerala Blasters coach Steve Coppell said Despite Coppell’s confidence Kerala Blasters will have to remain guarded against the hosts Kerala are on a four-match winning streak at home but have failed to impress in away games They have not won any of their last three away matches and have conceded 10 goals away from home a record that is bettered only by bottom-placed teams like Chennaiyin FC (12) and FC Goa (12) Worryingly Kerala Blasters have failed to score in four of their six away games and scored only three away goals the lowest by any team “Three points are important for both teams Kolkata have been unlucky in few of the

Top NewsWritten by Pratap Bhanu Mehta | Published: July 16 2009 12:44 am Related News Amid the din of ministries hogging the limelight with their 100-day agendasone ministry has been relatively less discussed But arguablythe ministries of rural development and panchayati raj are at as significant a cusp of reform as any other ministry In terms of budgetary allocationthe ministry of rural developmentnow in charge of large flagship programmesfrom NREGA to Indira Awas Yojanais the most significant in this cabinet In terms of direct impact on the lives of millions of peoplethe scope and reach of this ministry is remarkable But there are special reasons to pay attention to these ministries at this historical juncture for a number of factors Firstthere is no doubt that the architecture of rural welfare will be created through these ministries Every single scheme in this ministry has received significant increases in its budget NREGA now has universal coverage and the wage rate has been increased to Rs 100 per day In this sensethe scheme will inevitably move from a modest self-identified employment guarantee scheme to a much more ambitious welfare scheme For the most part this is for the good But the implementation and political management of this scheme (particularly fixing wage rates) will arguably command more and more attention In an ideal economyNREGA would become less necessary But the direction of its institutionalisation suggests that it will acquire characteristics of a classic welfare schemerather than a scheme of last resort Secondthe government is also proposing an ambitious convergence programmewhere NREGA is allied to a host of other programmes At some levelthis convergence may be sensiblebut designing an architecture that does not derail existing schemes in the name of convergence is going to be a tricky issue In particularcrucial choices will have to be made about who retains the final decision-making authority over the form convergence takes at the local level But perhaps the most important reason is the fact that for the first time the ministry of rural development and the ministry of panchayati raj have the same minister This provides an occasion to resolve what has been a perpetual tension in the way government thinks about the architecture of rural service delivery On the one handthere are what we might call schemers These are officials who think largely in the framework of Centrally-sponsored schemesbureaucratic largesse from above with all kinds of conditionalities On the other handthere are genuine decentralisersfor whom the objective of rural service delivery is not simply about the implementation of Centrally-sponsored schemesbut about genuine empowerment of the local panchayat system The conflict between the two is not always stark SometimesCentrally-sponsored schemes can be used to strengthen panchayat institutionsas happened in the case of NREGA Although even hereit has to be saidoften the success of the scheme depended upon bypassing panchayatsrather than strengthening them New Delhi has largely been dominated by schemers rather than genuine decentralisers States have certainly for the most part opposed genuinely strengthening panchayat institutionsfearing a loss of their own power But support for decentralisation at the Centre has also been more symbolic than real There is considerable evidence of this Despite the 73rd Amendmentthe constitutional status of panchayats in terms of being able to perform a range of functions remains very fragile There is also considerable irony in the fact that most of the states where panchayats have deeply institutionalised after the 73rd Amendment were also states where these institutions did well before the amendment The amendment itself has turned out to be a weaker instrument for local empowerment There is a vexed question about the relationship between elected local officials and the bureaucracy; by and large the bureaucracy has had the upper hand in this relationship There is still relatively little clarity about what functions should be performed at what level and why; the subsidiarity principle is evoked largely as a gesture Finallythere is the perennial argument of the schemers: we cannot transfer fundsfunctions and functionaries to panchayats because they have no capacity In this argumentcapacity has been judgednot by the ability to mobilise locally relevant knowledge for taking simple decisionsbut by the ability to conform to bureaucratic canons of standardisation No argument has been more beautifully self-fulfilling: since they dont have capacitydont devolve real power to them; since they dont have real powerdont build up their capacity This debate has gone on for 60 years and it is high time panchayats were endowed with genuine administrative capacity There has also been another political paradox at the heart of the panchayat system In order to avoid capture by local elitesreservation and rotation were introduced These instruments may have had the effect of prising open local power structures a little bit But they also have vitiated the political strength of the panchayat system as a whole for two reasons One of the attractions of local government was supposed to be that citizens could reward and punish elected officials on performance; the more local the governmentthe easier it is to make judgments about the distinguishing character of politicians This mechanism has become relatively meaningless Due to the fact that elected officials cannot now create an enduring political basetheir bargaining power in relation to other political functionaries and the state is also reduced Now there is an unprecedented historical opportunity to genuinely empower panchayats The scale of funding and number of functionaries available under various schemes is now truly staggering And if the control of some of these is transferred to the panchayatstheir significance and capacity will be enhanced dramatically The minister in chargeCP Joshiis a veteran of panchayat matterswith a sophisticated understanding of the politicalconstitutional and administrative issues involved; the fact that he has both ministries should allow him to resolve the tension between the schemers and the decentralisers decisively Oddly enoughthere is also now considerable analytical depth to our understanding of local governance in rural Indiain stark contrast to our near ignorance about the dynamics of local government in urban India Joshis predecessorMani Shankar Aiyarwas consistently right about one broad theme: you cannotin the long runhave inclusive growth without inclusive governance There is no way of having genuinely inclusive governance in rural India without strengthening panchayat

was born in pre-independence India in the year 1936 Top News It was in a disused temple in Karachi that Hanif Mohammad developed his cricket The family had moved from Gujarat after partition and had made the temple hall their new home The constraint of the real estate has often shaped the style of batsmen in their formative years and Hanif’s case was no different A small wall separated the garden from the road on the leg side and if the young Hanif and his brothers lifted the ball over the wall it was deemed out “We seldom did That was our secret” Hanif would recall later It was the birth of the most successful defensive technique to have emerged from Pakistan that was to leave an indelible impression in cricket grounds from Barbados to Bombay Hanif was Pakistan’s first cricketing star and became an adored figure through two stonewalling Test knocks – a 16 hours 30 minutes knock of 337 against West Indies to save a Test and a year later piling up 499 in a domestic game to beat Don Bradman’s then record of 452 The greatest stonewaller of his times has unsurprisingly produced strange and varied reactions from people across the world From an inebriated Caribbean fan falling off a tree from sheer boredom in Barbados to a parochial Indian fan attempting to slit his right hand – stories are numerous and fascinating The knifing episode came on the 1960-61 tour of India During a train ride Hanif shook hands with someone he thought was a fan but instead got his hand slit by a concealed blade It obviously set off an alarm in Pakistan and Hanif’s mother Ameer Bee one of the principal figures in him taking up this game had even rushed to India but the tour went on There was to be more drama involving Hanif before the first Test in Bombay though His hand had recovered but he developed a foot infection and two weeks before the Test his toe nails were removed He couldn’t even put his shoes on but the captain Fazal Mahmood was insistent that he had to play The mother was again brought into the picture – this time by the captain who worked on her emotionally And Ameer Bee told her son who could never refuse her that he must play for the sake of the country “My mother said I owed it to Pakistan” And so Hanif played a toe-shaped hole cut on the shoe that left him in danger of a serious injury A 45-minute net session before the game had left his foot soaked in blood but a toe-nail less Hanif went on to play the game “My innings in that Test was my finest I have played though least remembered” Hanif said later “It was like batting with nails piercing your feet It was a cricketing crucification” He was run out for 160 in that Test “With his crouching stance ultra-defensive technique and lack of inches he was rarely an attractive player to watch For Hanif it (batting) was a solemn duty a vocation whose fundamental purpose was to ensure his country was not defeated” wrote Peter Oborne in the Wounded Tiger history of Pakistan cricket It was a trait that was well captured in his most famous Test knock – that 337 against West Indies to save the game The particulars are well documented – Pakistan were following on 473 adrift on a deteriorating pitch against an attack that featured that Roy Gilchrist and there were three days left in the game It’s in the little specifics that Hanif’s greatness stands out Like in the notes that his captain AH Kardar would leave on the dressing table of his room “You are the only hope to save Pakistan” read one of the early notes For three days Hanif would come back battered and bruised but unbeaten The lunch breaks would see him settle in a corner with a small piece of chicken before he would relax take a shower and head out with a piece of wood again For three days he stuffed his thighs with towels from the hotel room Forget helmet there was no proper thigh pad and a towel stood between him and Roy Gilchrist’s fury Several deliveries flew past his face others crunched his thigh but he carried Once he tried hooking Gilchrist but the ball was past him before his bat could come anywhere near it Out strode Clyde Walcott with a piece of advice: “Don’t try to hook Gilchrist he is too fast for you” It was a good advice and one that Hanif heeded for the rest of the game Tip-toed sways and a dead bat was instead offered and slowly the runs and hours start to pile up To this day there is a confusion over the number of hours he spent Some say 970 minutes others go for 999 – but no one doubts the valour and the technique involved in the bloody 16-hour effort A year later back in Pakistan he amassed 499 to break Don Bradman’s 452 for the highest first-class score before Brian Lara broke it 33 years later The runs weren’t always scored so that his country wouldn’t be defeated Occasionally it was for more personal reasons Like a saree for his wife In the 1961 tour of India during the Kolkata Test the Pakistan team had a prize for the top scorer in the game “My brother Mushtaq made 61 in the
