Monaco’s record scorer with 223 goals between 1973-80. Mbappe was in devastating form again,35 pm. he now has exactly what he says he wanted: the leadership role in building a championship team. ? ?? @RanveerOfficial, Kim, ? As Sankarshan Thakur writes in The Telegraph,"Some leaders are able through sheer dint of persona to transcend mortal rules and requirements — morality ethics the law — and cast themselves in the public imagination as being above them What’s common to these personages isn’t far to seek — self-belief grit tenacity fortitude under fire an ability to exude authority and inspire loyalty and establish a connect with the masses above and beyond their widely identifiable sins and frailties…" Therefore despite being plagued by a disproportionate assets case for over two decades that saw her being stripped of the CM’schair and thrown behind bars Jayalalithaa was able to create history by becoming the first Tamil Nadu chief minister in 32 years to retain power earlier this year as AIADMK won 134 of the 234 Assembly seats That her political reinstatement in full regality happened less than two years after she emerged from the Parappana Agrahara prison complex and despite in 2015 making an administrative hash of managing the devastating Chennai floods add to the mystique of the mass leaders It may offend the sensibilities of those who tend to judge leaders based on their moral and legal foibles but to the masses who put Amma or Lalu back in power leaders are the custodians of faith and as long as they retain this reliance political immortality is assured Any taint — legal or ethical — is water off a duck’s back and may even end up increasing the trust factor because the cult figure is perceived as more sinned against than sinning; in these cases retribution of the criminal justice system loses its moral fiat The leader howsoever powerful becomes then a "victim" of the system and the masses take any punishment (even if it were justifiable) as a personal affront This is an intriguing prospect one that has always left political pundits scratching their scalps for answer One must add however that it is not just victimhood narrative or personal charisma that create the personality cult The tools are many In his column for The Indian Express M Vijayabaskar writes of "two strands of populism — assertive and paternalist" "Assertive populism (rests) on a mobilisation of a range of subaltern groups around a Tamil identity and (involves) efforts to address questions of social justice through reservations Paternalist populism (seeks) to cater to segments that tend to be excluded from schemes of assertive populism by providing them with subsidised wage goods" It is easy to see therefore the building blocks of trust In a country where a sizeable chunk of the population is poor and another major chunk keeps slipping in and out of the poverty line there will always be space for garnering political support through a social security net We therefore find Jayalalitha and Mamata turn into the mythical goddesses of plenty Not for nothing did Jayalalithaa create the hugely popular ‘Amma canteen’ or ‘Amma mineral water’ for the urban poor orlaunched a laundry list of schemes for the rural poor in ‘Amma seeds’ ‘Amma healthcare’ free laptops TV sets rice gas stoves mixers grinders cattle and revise upwardly the various pecuniary schemes for difference vulnerable sections of the society Similarly in West Bengal Didi consolidated her support base through an expansive list of welfare schemes These included as a Times of India article details Kanyashree scheme which offers monthly scholarships to girl students ‘Sabuj Sathi’ under which bicycles were distributed to students andmonthly doles of Rs 1500 to one lakh unemployed youth in the state under the ‘Yuvashree’ scheme There were also rice and wheat at Rs 2 per kg which covered around 7 crore people If the state coffers were rendered empty due to the profligacy the economic woes were deflected on to the Centre while the cult figures reaped the political benefits The welfare economics ensured dual benefits of a committed voter base and a semblance of assistance for India’s burgeoning youth population for whom the job opportunities remain scarce Add to this the carefully calibrated larger-than-life persona If Indira Is IndiaIndia Is Indira reverberated in 1970s even in her demise Jayalalitha remains AIADMK and the party is her reflection Mamata is Trinamool Congress while Mayawati defines BSP The cultivation of image-driven politics where a party is identifiable only through its supreme leader goes against the basic tenets of democracy but for the practitioners it ensures unbridled power through a direct connect with the masses Instead of heading the state the leaders then become *the* (italics please) state As long as this political structure brings benefits politics in India will continue to be dominated by the personality cults Written by Christina George | New Delhi | Updated: April 22 2017 5:04 am Aditya Vij is a passionate artefacts collector A picture of him with one of his vintage cars that he own Top News “Nothing which has historical value should be put into dumps” says Aditya Vij an anthropologist and a passionate artefacts collector who believes that the essence of today is rooted in our history His Bali Nagar residence in west Delhi is home to a collection of fascinating odds and ends of things you would either have read in books or heard stories from your grandparents The 44-year-old has dedicated his life to antiquities His interest in examining the transformation of rapidly changing lifestyles has made him create a lineage of many of his accumulated relics His first collection as an 8-year-old was colourful match boxes picked up when wandering on the roads with his father Today he has more than 4000 With time Vij expanded his collection beyond just matchboxes to other unusual historical objects His collection spans 18-20 categories — from cameras from the 1880s to typewriters (one that dates back to 1909) British memorabilia such as ink wells and feather pens to 15 vintage cars (oldest being a 1928 Chevrolet which is not restored) Many have been preserved and restored for the coming generations to appreciate His two daughters though would like him to sell the cars and buy an Audi instead but they still support his passion Vij’s house is more like a museum with a collection of 18-20 categories of antiques always open to public “I was inspired by my father’s art of preserving every little thing he owned I started putting all his collection of books and comics from the 1930s together and eventually developed a passion for collection of antiques” says Vij who is often teased as a ‘hoarder’ by his mother and friends Interestingly all his collections have a chronology and a connecting story to them He tries to chart an object’s evolution over the years One of the most organised things put together is his Re 1 note collection Remember the indigo colour Re 1 notes we used to spend to buy candies It was decommissioned two decades ago Vij has seven types of Re 1 notes starting from 1930 to latest one that was reintroduced in 2015 He has located the first Re 1 note that was released in 1917 but is waiting for the right deal to get his hands on it to complete the set Chronology of rupee 1 note since 1930 (Source: Express Photo by Christina George) Vij is perfect example of one person’s trash is another’s treasure “Anything disappearing is a collection for me anything that will be history for the generation 20 years ahead will also be a collection for me People move on but maintaining the old world charm gives me utmost satisfaction and peace” he says with a sense of nostalgia He built his collection (which comprises thousands of pieces) through the many expeditions and travels he’s made in search of the old For instance on a visit to Kathmandu Vij met with an old lady who was dumping torn and ramshackled items from her home that had been lying around for ages He spotted a Thangka painting depicting the life of Buddha that the lady said dated back hundreds of years He bought the painting from a very surprised owner saving it from being thrown into the trash It now hangs proudly on his wall of history Vij’s wall of history “Thangka basically serves as a teaching tool elaborating details and small figures of Buddha and other lamas It also reveals myths associated to deities in form of handmade paintings on silk and cotton with natural colours Most of the ancient families kept them as precious heirlooms” explains Vij who is staunchly averse to disclosing the monetary value of any of his possessions His latest acquisitions include a 1965 telephone instrument exclusively made by Siemens for Pakistan Telecom (he doesn’t know how it made its way to India) According to Vij the old heavy-weight enamel ceramic advertising boards belonging to the 1940s — some of them are even from pre-independent India — are the ‘hottest’ items in his collection since only a few of them exist in the world “These boards were made of iron shields with enamel painting and then baked to make them ceramic it has been scratch free and heat proof for decades but with latest technology and cheap methods of advertising coming in these are now just blocks of metal pieces for kabadiwalas to melt and get iron out of it” he added Vij laments that the current generation probably doesn’t have the kind of reverence it should for its past which why his house is open for all those interested on appointment “It’s important to spread awareness about our rich heritage and culture our destiny is scripted by our history” he says adding “It is terrible that the historic monuments and ancient archives today are restored without keeping the originality intact Polishing and usage of artificial parts to make it fancy is a huge loss of history as we are losing out on ancient inscriptions and values” The fact that no insurance company has agreed to insure his treasure trove because they don’t see the worth simply proves he’s right Source:
