single largest party in the state Assembly Kumar has been asked by the governor to prove his majority in the Assembly within two days of taking oath at 10 am on Thursday File image of Tejashwi Yadav IBN Khabar Kumar resigned as the chief minister last night The ostensible reason for him to quit was his falling out with Tejashwi the son of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav is facing corruption charges but had refused to step down as the deputy chief minister despite Kumar’s exhortations After Kumar’s meeting with the governor late last night Tejashwi accompanied by some RJD MLAs and leaders marched to the Raj Bhawan to meet Tripathi "RJD being the single largest party should have been invited to form the government We are taking legal advice and will move court against the governor’s decision" he told reporters after the meeting He said the people of Bihar had given the grand alliance the mandate to run its government for 5 years which Kumar "betrayed" He also threatened of protests across the state against Kumar "who will find it difficult to move around" Tejashwi claimed he had support of most JD(U) MLAs "I’m confident that most JD(U) MLAs who are committed to social justice will vote against the government in the floor-test" he said He said the governor told him that he has already invited Kumar for taking oath and it is not possible to take back the invitation letter Tejashwi was accompanied by brother Tej Pratap Yadav and senior party leaders – Abdul Bari Siddiqui Raghuvansh Prasad Singh Jagdanand Singh and party spokesman Manoj Jha in the meeting He described Kumar’s

just an excuse for him (Kumar) to go with BJP" Tejashwi told reporters after the meeting Follow live blog on Bihar political crisishere Written by Coomi Kapoor | Updated: May 6 2017 4:47 pm In Hot Blood by Bachi Karkaria Top News It was a murder case that continues to enthrall the public more than half a century later There have been countless articles and books several references in novels a PhD thesis and at least two films based on the real life story of a Parsi naval commander Kawas Nanavati who shot dead his English wife Sylvia’s lover Prem Ahuja back in 1959 The Nanavati case has been essential reading for law students not just because it led to the abolition of the jury system in India It was a major constitutional issue involving a confrontation between the judiciary and executive on whether Nanavati could be released through a governor’s pardon The galaxy of lawyers involved in some way or other in the strange twists and turns of the case included Karl Khandalwalla Rajni Patel Nani Palkhivala GS Pathak Homi Seervai YV Chandrachud and MC Setalvad all of whom were top names in the legal profession One of the few associated with the case still surviving is Ram Jethmalani then a struggling lawyer in Bombay hired to assist the prosecution by Ahuja’s sister Mamie So is there anything really new to add to this oft-repeated tale most recently in the Akshay Kumar-starrer Rustom You can trust intrepid veteran journalist Bachi Karkaria with her skilful play of words and nose for news to provide the story with new angles fresh insights and a vivid and well-researched background of the period including the hysteria that the case evoked Karkaria’s racy recounting of the trial and its aftermath makes for a gripping read The powerful wealthy Parsi community in the days when the undivided state was still named after the city and was yet to be partitioned into Maharashtra and Gujarat assumed its writ ran in Bombay They rose with one voice to defend their man a handsome much-admired naval officer who tumbled headlong from being one of the navy’s most outstanding commanders to transforming into its most celebrated criminal Crowds particularly Parsi women lined up from the early morning to grab a seat in the packed court room and catch a glimpse of Nanavati in his glamorous white uniform with glinting medals pinned to his chest His remorseful wife Sylvia sat dutifully with eyes lowered every day in the courtroom Russi Karanjia Parsi owner of the Blitz weekly broke new ground in tabloid journalism with his high-decibel campaign for freeing Nanavati — with screaming headlines spicy scoops and some cooked-up stories on Ahuja’s perfidy and philandering ways Nanavati was portrayed as a hero with long years of outstanding service to the country while Ahuja from the Sindhi community which had migrated to the city in large numbers after Partition had few sympathisers But the truth as Karkaria points out was not as simple as Karanjia’s one-sided black and white morality tale The jury with one exception might have been swayed by Khandalwalla’s persuasive arguments but Justice RB Mehta set aside the verdict discharged the jury and referred the case to the high court He pointed out that there were gaping holes in the defence’s theory of accidental shooting It was not merely his community which was batting for Nanavati so was the navy and higher-ups in the government Nanavati was one of VK Krishna Menon’s blue-eyed boys who had been a military attaché when Menon was high commissioner in London As defence minister Menon made no bones in an interview to The New York Times that the intervention of the central government had been at his request Menon presumably influenced an ailing Nehru Karkaria surmises that even the Mountbattens might have put in a word on behalf of the naval officer they had met briefly Nanavati eventually spent only a limited time in an actual jail cell thanks to his many behind-the-scenes patrons His life sentence was commuted to under three years Two governors of Bombay state first Sri Prakasa and later Nehru’s sister Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit invoked articles of the Constitution to suspend sentences passed by the courts A year after his release from prison in 1964 Nanavati and his family including a traumatised elder son whose insensitive classmates in school used to sing the song “Hang down your head Tom Dooley’’ in front of him left for Canada Tata group chairman JRD Tata secured a job for Nanavati in the country of his adoption In Ontario he became a pillar of the Parsi community an affable insurance salesman while Sylvia worked in a bank The couple returned to Bombay once in a while to meet his family and Nanavati even visited his old ship the INS Mysore on one occasion Nanavati died in 2003 Sylvia is still alive So is their story For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Dipanita Nath | Updated: February 10 2016 4:52 am Toye is the first play she has directed in which she does not perform Related News After seven years without rain the people of a village are crying out for water food and God’s grace Playwright Girish Karnad conjures up a vivid landscape in Agni aur Varsha in which villagers are as parched as the earth around them The play is a reworking of a myth from the Mahabharata Mumbai-based director-actor Jyoti Dogra working on Karnad’s text reduces the entire opening descriptions into one poignant image Actors move in slow motion — as if time itself were weary — and gradually raise their faces and arms to the sky From the silence comes the sound of quiet humming that fills the stage with a sense of desolation The ability of the actors to convey a narrative with minimal action or dialogues is the mainstay of Dogra’s theatre She has adapted Agni aur Varsha into a play called Toye (Sanskrit for water) which will have its first tour of Delhi this month Dogra will also present her acclaimed solo Notes on Chai at the Bharat Rang Mahotsav the annual theatre festival of the National School of Drama in Delhi on February 10 Excerpts of an interview: What drew you to Agni aur Varsha The play for me is about different kinds of hungers from the hunger for power to a hunger for love to a hunger for redemption I was interested in looking at this hunger in the bodies of the actors how such an obsession travels in the blood As an organism if I am taken up with it what happens to me Agni aur Varsha is set in the backdrop of the drought and a seven-year fire sacrifice that is aimed at pleasing the gods to end the drought The play begins with a family feud where Yavakri consumed with love for Vishakha his childhood sweetheart and wife of his arch rival sets out to destroy her entire family His ambition and thirst for power is met with equal force and violence by Pravasu Vishakha’s husband and his uncle As these opposing worlds collide they bring forth a diabolic energy that engulfs everything in its path At the end it is the sacrifice of two innocent lovers Arvasu and Nittlai that restores order convincing the gods to send rain How did you convey this complex story as a piece of physical theatre The piece attempts to find physical and aural images that do justice to the complexities of the text When the Brahma Rakshash and Paravasu for instance confront each other both actors decided to perform the sequence on a swing The scene happens mid-air where they hit out at each other are upside down or on top of each other on the swing The sense is that they are clamouring for mukti for redemption for peace We worked with tiny movements each magnified and made very large so that every detail every intake of breath becomes a physical force and magnifies the performance Did your rehearsal space have a bearing on how the play shaped up We needed a space where we could cut out the rest of the world and come together Indri a village near Karnal was such a place The team worked 14 hours a day Living together closely sharing day-to-day production difficulties fuelled our faith in the work Each actor was intimately and intensely involved in every aspect of the production which in turn sharpened his sense of the play and his playing Why did you choose to have multiple actors playing a single character as well as some actors having single parts This was an ensemble production and from the beginning it grew organically Each actor brings in a complexity that is his own There are different actors playing the same character at different times — which compels the audience to not engage with a character as much as with the ideas and possibilities those characters represent These ideas as well as the actors constantly change in the play and at times the narrative line may be a little hard to understand But our attempt is not so much to convey the meaning or the story but to share an experience of this world and allow each audience member to engage in the meaning-making process In my others works also be it The Doorway or Notes on Chai if two people in the audience find two different meanings of a sequence I feel my play is progressing Toye will be presented at Studio Safdar on February 20 and 21 Ambedkar University on February 22 Kirori Mal College on February 24th Shiv Nadar University on February 25
