said here: “I am glad to be part of Sachin’s new innings The song that he has sung with me is called ‘Cricket waali beat’ I was very surprised to see the way he was pitching right That’s why I believe that when God blesses someone with genius it spills in other faculties too” Sonu can now vouch for Tendulkar’s singing skill “He is a very good singer We did not use pitch corrector on his voice as he was singing in the right sur (tone) and (despite being) the shy person that he is he got extremely comfortable the moment I kind of increased the masti (fun) quotient while we were shooting the video It was wonderful and I am very happy that people are loving the song” the singer said Sonu judges “Indian Idol 9” with composer Annu Malik and choreographer-director Farah Khan The finale will see

Ministry said in what is believed to be the first openly acknowledged mission of its kind A brief statement on the ministry’s website said the plane was on patrol when it was diverted to Fiery Cross Reef on Sunday morning to pick up three injured construction workers The plane then flew to Sanya on China’s southernmost island province of Hainan where it landed at Fenghuang International Airport the ministry said Details about the plane and where it was based were not given although a photo accompanying the report showed a four propeller Y-8 transport being met by an ambulance Representational image Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense via AP The Global Times newspaper said Sunday’s flight marked "the first time a Chinese military plane has openly landed on Yongshujiao" using the Chinese name for Fiery Cross Reef The speed with which the mission was accomplished was a testament to China’s long-term policy of patrolling over the South China Sea said the paper a nationalist tabloid published by the ruling Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily China completed the runway on Fiery Cross Reef last year and in January flew three commercial jets to the island as a test That move drew complaints from Vietnam which along with four other governments is enmeshed a heated dispute with Beijing over large parts of the South China Sea Hanoi accused China of threatening the safety of civilian flights by failing to properly inform its aviation authorities of the flights beforehand The US also complained that the flights raised tensions and reiterated its calls for a halt to land reclamation and militarization of outposts in the area The Philippines which also claims islands and reefs controlled by China criticized the move Tensions have risen in the last two years after China transformed Fiery Cross and other coral reefs in the Spratly Island chain into islands that could be used to project its military might far from the Chinese mainland Taiwan Malaysia and Brunei also claim territory in the South China Sea that China says belongs to it The new islands in the South China Sea have become a source of tension between Beijing and Washington which refuses to view them legally as islands entitled to territorial seas and special economic zones While the United States is not a claimant state it says it has a national interest in the peaceful settlement of disputes in the South China Sea and in freedom of navigation in waters that are critical for world trade Written by Sriram Veera | Imphal | Updated: October 4 2017 8:16 am Renedy Singh is confident that the Indian U-17 team will hold their own in terms of physicality and basics (Source: AIFF release) Related News Four days back India U-17 goalkeeper Dhiraj Singh had a chat with fellow Manipuri Renedy Singh former India midfielder and currently an Indian Super League coach “Don’t worry even if you lose the three games forget the hype this World Cup is not about win or loss” Dhiraj was told “Play like each game is your last game fight it out for 90 minutes and most importantly stick to your coach’s tactical plan Ensure the team keeps its shape in attack and defence” As the World Cup is around the bend the hype machine is slowly worming its way into the minds of fans and an effort is made to not let pressure and distraction get to the players Already the team management has started to shield the players by taking away their phones It causes occasional hiccups in families getting through to their sons but the aim is to keep them focused The young Indian team is good experts reckon but they will run into top international teams and it won’t be a surprise if they don’t win On Tuesday Renedy shared an incident from his past that still rankles him and in many ways captures the sorry tale of Indian football over the years It also explains what he meant by keeping shape In the latter 1990s Renedy was part of the U-19 team that played in Busan in Korea India held China 1-1 drew with Syria and lost to Japan a team that had Shunsuke Nakamura 0-2 “We thought we were there with the best” Seven years on he would learn the bitter truth that they were just drifting along rather aimlessly “So we play Japan seven years later Almost same team in both sides I am here Nakamura is there… all same and we got thrashed 7-0” He shakes his head in disbelief even now all these years later as if he has just returned from the stadium after the humiliating loss In those seven years even as Japan grew tactically stronger Indian players had slipped “Until Bob Houghton took over as coach we didn’t know what real football was We were just playing from heart and just running It was all about running There was no real tactical knowledge Most important for a team is to keep shape –when the ball is on the right side what should I do on the left flank We can’t be just running in the open We used to do that Wham they come through and score a goal It’s basics but we didn’t learn till Houghton came” Over the last two years the U-17 probables were travelling around the world AIFF has spent around Rs 15 to 18 crore on them and they have been working with coach Luis Norton de Matos They have done well against Asian teams and have had pitched battles with top-class teams abroad Renedy is confident that this current lot would hold their own in terms of physicality and basics “Other top teams of the world might be superior tactically because they start so young – from the age of 8 in most cases with regular match-time against competitive sides – but Indians would do a few things well I would be surprised if they are running aimlessly in the open they would organise themselves well they would run hard with a plan” In his mind it’s not even this World Cup that is all important in determining India’s future – but what happens in the next four years “17 to 21 is the most crucial years It’s the make or break years You might do well in the World Cup but a player can vanish in a year It would come down to how well AIFF manage it” The hype and attention the rising ambition and dreams as one enters the adult world and the financial demands on these players would all pile up Renedy says Most of the teenagers in the team are from poor families Some from Manipur would become the main breadwinners of their families And they would be hit with the reality check of the adult world soon “They have to maintain balance – the moment compliments gets to heads or criticism goes to heart you would be gone Such a vulnerable age this “Yes some of them can go on to play in the ISL but not everyone would right What’s going to happen then AIFF needs to have a plan to even help them monetarily This is a good team and will form the core of the Indian men’s team in the near future AIFF has to keep them together and continue to counsel train provide exposure and chart out a map for them The coaching staff should remain for a while It will come down to what kind of competitive leagues we put them in – will they get to play week in week out How AIFF plans out the next four years with the core of this team would determine where Indian football goes” For all the

Representation of the People Act 1951 to make it mandatory for every recognised political party to nominate women candidates for election in at least one-third of the constituencies Related News Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised on the floor of the House that the women’s reservation bill will be enacted at the earliest But I hope he will go about it in a democratic manner and not try to shove the existing reservation scheme down everyone’s throat as the Congress under pressure from the Left parties tried to do The bill in its present form is a classic example of the growing gap between pious promises and actual results of government policies and legislation in India We need a thorough debate on the proposed legislation so that some glaring infirmities in the bill can be removed before it becomes law especially since it requires an amendment to the Constitution The bill provides for reservation on a rotation basis through a lottery system which means that two-thirds of the incumbent members will be forcibly unseated in every general election and those remaining will stay in limbo till the last moment Such compulsory unseating violates the basic principle of democratic representation and is fair neither to men nor women It jeopardises the possibility of effective planning to contest by nurturing a political constituency for both male and female candidates Second women will be ghettoised and forced to fight elections only against other women This will deny them the legitimacy of being mainstream politicians Third as male legislators will be forced to surrender their seats for a term to women those who have worked to nurture their constituencies will likely insist that the seat be given to a woman from their family Since a seat will be reserved once in 15 years males pushed out of their constituency are likely to field female relatives or even proxy candidates as a stop-gap arrangement and women will not get the chance to cultivate deep roots in their constituency This is how the biwi-beti-bahu brigade came to dominate our elected bodies even at the panchayat and zila parishad levels where this rotation system has already been imposed Finally the bill is completely silent about women’s representation in the Rajya Sabha and legislative councils It is unfortunate that the UPA government did not consider more viable alternative proposals The alternative bill proposed by Manushi the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies and Lok Satta had received the endorsements of the Election Commission and several political parties The alternative bill proposes that a law be enacted amending The Representation of the People Act 1951 to make it mandatory for every recognised political party to nominate women candidates for election in at least one-third of the constituencies If a recognised party fails to do this for the shortfall of each woman candidate two male candidates of the party shall lose the party symbol and affiliation and all recognition-related advantages This bill has several advantages over the one tabled in Parliament First parties will be free to field women candidates where they can offer a good fight rather than in pre-fixed lottery-based constituencies where they may or may not have viable women candidates Thus there is flexibility and promotion of natural leadership Second women candidates will be contesting both against female and/or male candidates of rival parties The democratic choice of voters will not be restricted to compulsorily electing only women in one-third constituencies while the other two-thirds are treated like male monopolies Third unlike the lottery system of reserved constituencies where women’s presence is likely to get ossified at 33 per cent since there would be resistance to letting women contest from non-reserved constituencies this model allows for far greater flexibility in the number and proportion of women being elected to legislatures If women are candidates for one-third of all seats contested by each party theoretically they could win a majority of seats all on merit Fourth it obviates the need for a quota within a quota as is being demanded by certain OBC parties Since the onus of fielding women candidates will be left to each party those concerned about increased representation of backward class women can field as many as they think appropriate The rotational reservation scheme is likely to face endless delays and obstruction because it requires an amendment to the Constitution Thereafter it has to be ratified by at least half of the state legislatures Given the overt and covert opposition to this bill within all parties including the BJP the bill will face endless hurdles along the way In contrast the alternative bill can be passed by a simple majority in the two Houses since all it requires is an amendment to the Representation of the People Act However whatever the form and shape of the women’s reservation law we cannot overlook the tragedy inherent in the fact that 67 years after Independence women need to seek the quota route to entry in politics This acquires more poignancy because when the Constitution was coming into force most prominent women leaders refused to accept the principle of reservation as a route to political power They did so in the belief that as in the Mahatma Gandhi-led freedom movement they would be able to carve out a respectable space for themselves without being offered crutches While in post-Independence India women have been successful in entering all other professions on the basis of merit politics is one field where they have remained marginalised This is because a polity where money and muscle power dominates doesn’t make space even for honest men and is therefore intrinsically hostile to women as a group Only those who can outperform or gang up with men in crime and corruption are likely to survive in the existing scheme of things Modi understands better than anyone else that radical governance and electoral reforms are needed to cleanse our politics of crime and corruption That alone will make politics women-friendly
