likely to get better protection in terms of armed officials guarding boundaries and major entry/exit points This comes after a number of pleas to tighten security around the airport which presently has 33 unarmed guards Three years back the airport had called for help from the local police to send 30 armed cops to ensure better security “After continuous demands of providing us with a dedicated team of either Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) or MSGB (Maharashtra Security Guard Board) for security reasons we are hopeful of getting this team from MSF which will ensure better security

For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsA changed team with a new approach Chennaiyin FC secured their first win in six matches in the third season of the Indian Super League (ISL) when they pipped FC Pune City 2-0 at the Marina Arena on Tuesday That the win came without conceding against the best away team so far was even more special A team playing to its strengths Chennaiyin FC this season have experimented with a variety of wide men pumping in balls at the centre in the hope of something coming out of them But this never let Raphael Augusto arguably their best player show his full repertoire of skills Chennaiyin FC thoroughly deserved their victory against FC Pune City ISL Against FC Pune City on Tuesday Chennaiyin were set up much narrower with Manuele Blasi shielding the defence and Hans Mulder and Zakeer Mundampara playing slightly ahead of him This allowed Augusto to play with complete freedom The effect of that seemed to rub on the team as well and there were some slick passing on show The signs that it would be Chennaiyin’s night were evident as early in the match as the eighth minute as Jeje Lalpekhlua and David Succi combined with Augusto in a nice interplay that broke down with the offside flag against Succi In the 24th minute Succi had a chance to set up Jeje but was a touch selfish going for a shot himself His shot however was poor and it only delayed the first goal for Chennaiyin With the absence of wingers the fullbacks tried their luck with some crosses but most were overhit When the goal finally came at the stroke of half time it was the result of a splendid team effort Augusto threaded through a pass for Mulder who did well to find Jerry Lalrinzuala under pressure Jerry’s ball from the left was cushioned by Succi and it looped neatly for the alert Jeje to head in at point blank range Chennaiyin have in the recent past been guilty of not killing games and letting the opposition sneak into the contest (against Atletico de Kolkata away FC Pune City away Mumbai City FC at home and in the last match against Kerala Blasters away) But on Tuesday there were no worries as a slick one-two between Augusto and Jeje produced a cross for Succi to head into the corner of the net Edel Bete’s hands could only graze the ball on its way into the goal Game over in 50 minutes A direct approach clearly suits Chennaiyin much better This also allows Jeje and Succi the team’s two best forwards to start together And most importantly this lets Augusto to stamp his authority on the match Chennaiyin FC fans will hope this change in approach is permanent Solid defensive set-up With Mundampara and Blasi barely crossing the halfway line the Chennaiyin defence was well-shielded So far only one among Mulder or Augusto would venture forward at a time This new central midfield pairing surely lent the team a solid base to attack from Eder Monteiro who started his first match this season replacing Eli Sabia in central defence put in a solid shift staking his claim for more game time Karanjit Singh back in the team for his fourth clean sheet was authoritative and did well on the couple of occasions his goalkeeping prowess was tested The defence on the whole led by captain Bernard Mendy kept the visitors at bay with assurance With only two shots on target conceded the Chennaiyin defence redeemed itself earning a well-deserved clean sheet after conceding seven goals in two matches Chennaiyin manager Marco Materazzi must be pleased with the performance of his team He in fact could substitute his best players on the day to give them a breather ahead of an all-important clash against Atletico de Kolkata on 20 November The well-deserved victory has come at the right time for the defending champions as they have put their campaign back on track as we approach the business end of the tournament A month or two before the Rio Olympics a FMCG firm had evinced interest in signing up Kidambi Srikanth Things had moved fast with the business head of the company meeting Srikanth posing for photographs even fixing the deal value with his managers But the deal was never closed because the firm was apprehensive as they believed they will need to spend a lot of money to promote Srikanth This despite the representatives being told they were missing out on big potential On the day Srikanth won the Australia Open title R Ramakrishnan director of Baseline Ventures the sports management firm that represents the shuttler messaged the honcho of the firm to remind him of what they had missed out on The representative reacted merely with a thumbs up India’s Srikanth Kidambi in action AP Two Superseries titles in two weeks is a long time in badminton Soon after Sydney was conquered Ramakrishnan’s phone was buzzing again with corporates wanting to invest in the success story Among them were some who did not believe in Srikanth’s promise and talent this time last year "My pitch to the brands has been the same That a true sports marketing partnership is when the brand is part of the growth story not rush in after the player has achieved big success I would even point out that even the great Lin Dan had predicted watch out for Srikanth" says Ramakrishnan Post the twin wins Srikanth is going through the PV Sindhu phase post-Rio The Olympic silver medallist’s brand value increased 50 percent after August last year and now she is the second highest paid sportsperson in brand endorsements after Virat Kohli Sindhu commands a price of between Rs 1 crore to 125 crore a day Compare this to Kohli who is almost 100 percent more at around Rs 2 crore Post the Australia Open title every corporate in town wants to be part of the Srikanth photo frame at least to explore the possibility of a marriage of brand with personality Cars are being gifted the price quoted is being met with a lesser degree of hemming and hawing With deals worth Rs 3 crore for a three-year period being spoken about the Guntur boy’s bird is clearly taking flight While it helps Srikanth and deservingly so the jury is out on how much Indian badminton gains as a result The glass half-full way of looking at it is that it will motivate those players who haven’t been lucky with endorsements yet to do better It also gives a fair idea to beginners in the game and their parents about what can be achieved financially with the right focus and hard work But it is not as if badminton is giving cricket a run for its money Sports analysts point out that the premium even now is on spots and perimeter board advertising even when it is a meaningless David vs Goliath West Indies-India contest Corporates are still stuck in a medieval era obsessed only with the visibility of their brands on live TV However what has changed in the last couple of years is that whenever a brand is looking to break away from the cluttered world of cricket it is looking at badminton as a choice boosted of course by the on-court success But the Sindhus Saina Nehwals and the Srikanths also will have to do much more in the virtual world to retain brand interest Kohli has now emerged as the second most followed Indian on Facebook with over 35 million followers just behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has 42 million plus followers Kohli also has 16 million followers on Twitter and 14 million on Instagram Srikanth has a job at hand as he has only 70000 followers on Facebook and 86000 on Twitter and he will need to engage more during his non-badminton hours Sindhu is better at 134 million on Twitter and 124 million on Facebook Why this is important is because brands who do not have big money to spend are increasingly using social media for short burst endorsements Unlike the traditional way of using mainstream media to promote brands sportspersons and other celebrities are now encouraged to tweet post or record a selfie video endorsing a particular brand to engage with their followers "Numbers matter the reach matters" points out Navneet Ganapathi partner at Sportainment a sports management company that has worked with IPL teams It collaborated recently for a digital engagement with Suresh Raina who has 88 million followers on Twitter even though he is not a regular in the Indian team now "Unlike a shoot for an endorsement and a meet-and-greet with a brand that could cost up to a few crores using social media to promote a brand is cost effective as it won’t need more than Rs 10-15 lakh" says Ganapathi Brands also look to invest in the personality and not just the on-court talent so that the marketability of the player is more Kohli in that sense is a big brand name because not only does he excel on the 22 yards he is outspoken and wears his heart on his sleeve as well Sindhu is getting there as well she is all pumped up when she is on court screaming and shouting almost as if to intimidate the opponent That makes for riveting television and her transformation into a fashion diva especially on Instagram presents a glamorous side to the shuttler Clearly eating drinking and sleeping badminton alone isn’t enough to be a brand Written by PTI |

‘Bayly School’ to replace the Cambridge one he so disliked (Source: Youtube) Related News Affectionately called Chris by those who knew him Professor Sir Christopher Alan Bayly died unexpectedly on April 18 just short of his 70th birthday He was about to finish his stint as the first Vivekananda Professor at the University of Chicago a position that should have been unthinkable for him to hold For there exists a famous rivalry between the postcolonial school of Indian history that dominates the American university and the imperial one long prevalent at Cambridge where Bayly was Vere Harmsworth Professor of Imperial and Naval History But then Bayly spent much of his career doing the unthinkable remarkable for someone widely regarded as a true representative of the academic establishment Early in his career for example he abandoned the so-called Cambridge School which saw Indians as motivated by interests rather than ideas and studied them as if in some behaviourist experiment Having freed himself from one kind of orthodoxy Bayly went on to challenge many of the conventions of his field but with such grace and erudition that he never received a reputation for radicalism or even provocation There was for instance his 1997 book Origins of Nationality in South Asia: Patriotism and Ethical Government in the Making of Modern India in which Bayly looked at the way in which pre-colonial forms of belonging and identification in northern India went into the making of South Asia’s nationalisms His efforts to recognise the role of Indians in their history sometimes resulted in Bayly being accused of making South Asians responsible for their own colonisation However this would mistake the tenacity with which he worked to make visible the complex if hierarchical interconnections that shaped not only India but Europe and the world as well His 2004 book The Birth of the Modern World: Global Connections and Comparisons 1780-1914 rewrote world history to make precisely this point — there exists no linear trajectory of historical influence or agency Having ranged in his interests from the merchants of Benares in Rulers Townsmen and Bazaars: North Indian Society in the Age of British Expansion 1780-1870 to the control of information that made colonial rule possible in Empire and Information: Intelligence Gathering and Social Communication in India 1780-1870 in recent years Bayly had turned to both a study of the world and of postcolonial India The latter subject he pursued through the medium of intellectual history The result was a series of extraordinary essays on the making of independent India that focused on men like Madan Mohan Malaviya and S Radhakrishnan Radhakamal Mukerjee and his own supervisor at Oxford S Gopal His last book published in 2012 as the 100th volume of the prestigious Cambridge series in political thought Ideas in Context was Recovering Liberties: Indian Thought in the Age of Liberalism and Empire It brought Bayly’s scholarly career to exactly the opposite position from where it had started looking at the importance of ideas in the history of the Indian republic For a historian of such eminence Bayly was not only unassuming if strongly principled but also a scholar who unusually refused to reproduce himself intellectually or indeed set up a “Bayly School” to replace the Cambridge one he so disliked Instead he sought to get the best out of his students many of them distinguished scholars in their own right whatever it was they wanted to do This was a mark ofBayly’s intellectual confidence generosity and openness to new ideas One evening last year when his Cambridge colleague Shruti Kapila and I were planning a conference celebrating his life and work we dined with Bayly He said two things that reveal something about his character He didn’t want the event to be about him but preferred a conversation with friends and students about their own work — the event was to be he repeated often an anti-festschrift The second remark was on the practices to which he attributed his own achievement Always make time for your students and peers Bayly said and rarely for your superiors The writer is University Reader in Modern South Asian History and fellow of St Antony’s College at the University of Oxford where he is also director of the Asian Studies Centre For all the

been recently welcomed by parties with open arms A former R&AW chief army chief and home secretary have joined the BJP which can boast of the most high-profile entrants this time But other parties from the Congress to the CPM the TMC to the BSP have previously given tickets to former public officials This has revived old questions about the propriety of administrators and police officers taking political sides the instant they quit government The civil services in India following the UK model was set up as a permanent unified and politically neutral apparatus meant to implement the policies of the elected government By contrast the US has a system of political appointees whose loyalties lie clearly with the government that chose them and who present none of the resistance that an entrenched bureaucracy often can But given that the Indian system rests heavily on the assumption of scrupulous neutrality any evidence of partisan affiliation can erode trust in the system It provokes a harsh glare on decisions taken by the civil servant while in office and raises questions about whether their preferred party’s interests played a part in their choices The same logic applies when a public official shifts to the private sector after retirement While it is perfectly within the rights of civil servants to move to commercial employment and offer their managerial skills for hire it can also lead to an unseemly “revolving door” syndrome where industry and government officials benefit each other The all-India service rules do mandate a year in between such stints to avoid blatant ethical breaches Using that logic in 2012 the Election Commission had expressed its desire for a cooling off period between retirement and formal entry into politics and asked for the service rules to be amended but the government rejected the idea The Department of Personnel and Training advised by the Attorney General told the EC that the right to contest elections flows out of the rights of citizenship and could not be curtailed once such an individual has quit her office Officials who have made the transition argue that political duties are simply another side of public service and that it does not render their previous work suspect In the final reckoning civil servants cannot realistically be expected to have no political preference The test however is whether their functioning has been fair and impartial For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Agencies | London | Published: August 18 2011 3:28 pm
