Essentially Salwa Judum was not planned for by the state government In the years 2005-07when the Maoists decisively gained control of the tract of land that is Abujhmad spanning the tail of Chhattisgarh where it joins Orissa and Andhra Pradesh they made it clear to the local population which way their loyalties should lie Those segments of the population which resisted had to flee This is an important development in the entire narrativewhich the Maoist sympathisers gloss over The refugees landed up near the block offices of the government for shelter Initially they numbered not more than 100sitting helplessly in the opensaid a very senior officer of the government who has been decorated for his pioneering work in rural development The state had little idea of what to do with themexcept to provide them with plastic sheets and a meagre ration But even that was a better deal for the escapees The doles drew in several thousandsmaking each of those camps large shantytowns These are incongruous towns in the middle of thickly forested landsbut they are zones of safety for the migrants The four districts of the original Bastar range are now the location of one of Indias major mass migrationsof people caught in crossfire between the Maoists/Naxalites and an ill-equipped state government The short point is none of these shantytowns are heavenly locations which a crafty state government has created to lure and trap unsuspecting tribal people into They are the response of people for whom successive state governments had failed to ensure basic security It is from these camps then that Chhattisgarh started recruiting its special police officers The SPOs have a massive advantage that the police constables didnt have: They know the local region extremely well and are therefore fabulous spotters for the police This neutralises the advantage of the Maoist guerrillaswho also employ the same pool of local people to guide them So it is not the arms these 4000 men sport which annoy the Maoistsand possibly their votariestoo The SPO are the arms and in jungle warfare they are the vital difference between two combatants Anybody who has not seen the dense foliage and the crazy shadows those forests throw in day or night will not be able to appreciate the key difference the spotters create (An aside: remember the deadly spotter in the Hollywood classicButch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) In the summer of 2010the CRPF senior brass refused to accept this basic lesson Never having been pushed into an engagement in such terrainthey went in with no role assigned to the SPOs The carnage that followed within two months needs no retelling Even with these peoplethe entire anti-Maoist operation is now confined to merely securing the area outside the Abujhmad no-go area The picturesque falls outside Jagdalpur serve as a limit; beyond them the writ of the state police does not run The Indian army hasfor the first timeset up a base camp this month in that region for which no land revenue record exists The recent blast on a Congress convoy was the expression of a protest against this camp Yetsince few of these SPOs receive detailed training in armsit is impossible to expect them to stand any chance in a skirmishleave alone a fight with any half-decent policeman or the even better-equipped para-military forces It makes no sensethereforeto paint them as our versions of Nazi stormtroopers marching down the streets of Raipur On the larger issue of Salwa Judumas I said beforedismantling the camps will serve no purpose The refugees will not melt away The slums where they stay willif possibledegenerate if shorn of even the rudimentary state support they now get What this will do to the social fabric of the state is easy to guess Chhattisgarhlike most of our northern statestakes time to get its act together The evacuation of the camps to forcibly take the population back to the homes from where they have come will be an enormous crime The alternative is to develop the regionprovide employment avenuesand pull people out of the cycle theyre caught in The writer is Executive Editor (News)? the unique heritage of the pioneers of Anglo-Indian cuisine.

There are far more gentlemen who get appointed to seniority even though lady advocates make up a significant portion of the Bar. The idea being that this would create an environment where senior advocates would devote their time to matters concerning important questions of law. They would also be able to impart dispassionate advice to the parties they act for as they do not represent them directly and will be able to bring in an added degree of research and skill to handle particularly complex matters The role of a senior advocate is one that is needed it allows for signalling experience at the Bar and also allows for specialisation as seniors can ideally devote more time to certain areas of law that ordinarily practitioners cannot The financial reward of seniority is obvious but that’s often not the sole driver There is a sense of social prestige and recognition among one’s peers that increases the demand for these designations England reformed their procedure of appointing senior advocates (in England they are called King’s/Queen’s Counsel) in 2003 While the appointment is still made by the Crown there is now a system whereby the appointments are recommended by a commission The commission consists of lay members judges and other lawyers Applicants apply for designation and are then interviewed by the committee A much fairer system than the one that is exclusively dependent on the judges of a particular court Further this reformed system allows for a certain element of transparency in the process Something that the present process in India lacks There are many ways to reform the current system and once discussions about reform were to happen there will surely be a myriad of ideas that would be expressed about reform One that is quite apparent though is that this process needs urgent reform Written by Shivani Naik | Updated: June 18 2017 10:26

badminton players envy But the way shuttle is structured in typically herded environments of Asia a badminton tournament ends up resembling a team sport if you have a good crop of players from the same country One of India’s long-cherished dreams – after watching China enviously all these years – was an all-India Super Series final which happened last month in Singapore The other half of the dream is having its men’s singles players hunt like a pack in a tournament And coaches P Gopichand and Mulyo Handoyo are relishing this hound-trail Consider Day 1 at the Indonesian Premier Super Series: HS Prannoy sneaks into the main draw because he is there-and-thereabouts in rankings right on the brink Sai Praneeth who is fresh off two titles including the last Super Series in Singapore gets the first shy at World No 1 Son Wan Ho He goes down but no matter As the week progresses Prannoy finds pristine touch and takes out former World No 1s Lee Chong Wei in Round 2 and Olympic champ Chen Long in quarters He’s mine-swept the dynamite half of the draw even as Kidambi Srikanth neutralises another former World No 1 Jan O Jorgensen before putting his head down in two quiet clinical matches to go deep into the weekend from the bottom half of the draw Prannoy falls in semis but he’s cleaned up the field even as Srikanth goes into his biggest battle of the meet against current table-topper Son Wan Ho to ensure at least one Indian lined up for the final Saturday fulfilled that long-held fantasy of Indian badminton and Korean Son was the miserable victim as he realised if Sai Praneeth doesn’t get you K Srikanth will Swap and shuffle those names at different events and that script promises to be the future of Indian badminton in the coming years A skilled pack having tasted blood and hungry for titles off on a hunt That was Chinese folklore: if not Bao Chunlai then Chen Jin and if not him there’s always Lin Dan ready to move in for the kill Lots of talented Indians dangerously floating around the 32-man draw is what you get when you have four of them squirming restlessly and waiting to bound away in the Top 20 It helps that this is an outrageously talented bunch – Kashyap’s not done yet Ajay Jayaram is maxing his touch-play and then there’s Srikanth Prannoy Sai Praneeth and Sameer Verma who’ve now made three Super Series finals Semifinals day at Jakarta was as much about Srikanth’s audacious win over Son Wan Ho — a 72-minute thriller that ended 21-15 14-21 24-22 — as it was about the missed opportunity when Prannoy flubbed five match points in middle game against Kazumasa Sakai to go down 21-17 26-28 18-21 But just like the Singapore loss in final had sent Srikanth back to the drawing board to plot Final No 2 in successive Super Series Indonesia would have stoked the fire in Prannoy and made him hungrier for his maiden title All players have skipped tournaments licking wounds from losses spent hours away from the stadium lights and A/C vents of competitive venues chipping away at flaws and gaining stamina and returned with vengeance to perform in the limited tournaments that the coach is allowing them Systems are often credited success and this is no different but coaches don’t play on the court and it’s entirely down to the motivation of all individual players that’s ensured so many Indians in SS finals In this storm of success Srikanth is the most curious case It’s often joked – which Srikanth will turn up on the day On Saturday all three did The first version ‘Overlord of Offence’ pounced on the Korean’s rustiness and strung together a great attack in Game 1: there were the trademark flick net crosscourts and big smashes In Game 2 came the ‘Self-Destructor Srikanth’ who got into such a rush to gather winners in short rallies that he smashed straight into the net multiple times and from leading 13-10 gave away 7 points in errors to lose 21-14 It was in the decider that the champion material burst onto the court – he lived by the sword and while the errors crept in there was enough punch in the all-out attack to withstand a match-point by simply unleashing his crosscourt weapon to pull himself out of the corners “In the last point I was very lucky to pull off that tap retrieve I was 1 per cent luckier than him” he would say of a close game where his attack showed intent and fortune favoured the brave “It’s good to play a final in Indonesia which has one of the best crowds and is one of badminton’s biggest homes I had a bad injury after Olympics because I pushed hard in Japan and Korea which I shouldn’t have Once I came back taking the loss in India Open was painful But I pulled out of Malaysia and that one week training helped in Singapore I’m surprised to play back to back finals in Super Series events” he would say Yet it has been an abrasive week on those who’ve gone deep into the draw While two big matches ultimately felled Prannoy Son Wan Ho too spoke of diminishing strength “My stamina dropped in the third Srikanth’s attack was very good I was defending well but his defense too was strong I need to evaluate my stamina” the top-ranked Korean would say The fatigue will count when the Indian meets the unfancied Japanese qualifier Sakai “Sakai is steady and Srikanth is tough to read the first time someone plays him But it’ll depend on how well Srikanth recovers from today’s long match” coach Gopichand said The pack has set it up nicely for Srikanth He’ll have to go for the final kill – climb his own final ascent for a glorious individual title For all the latest

daughter of a chartered accountant and an associate professor spoke to IANS about her journey on the sidelines of the fourth edition of India Beach Fashion Week 2017 here Talking about how having some backing helps she said “People would have known me much faster… To register a new face especially when that face doesn’t come from a film background and you don’t know the surname it takes a little while for the audience to connect with you” Also read |Kriti Sanon reveals she hated dubbing for her films but now things have changed “I am quite proud of it of where I’ve come I never thought of becoming an actor to where I am right now I don’t have any particular godfather who is always there and helping me out But at the same time I am making my own mistakes and learning through them” she said Also the 26-year-old actress feels “rawness helps as an actor” “It’s good sometimes to not know too much” Kriti said The actress has starred in two romantic films Heropanti and Dilwale As of now she has two movies — Raabta and Bareilly Ki Barfi in her kitty Asked if she wants to stick to the romantic genre Kriti said “I am a romantic at heart I love ‘love stories’ and that is something that should never go out of fashion The four films I have done are very different from one another” She says Raabta is a romantic drama And one cannot actually put Bareilly Ki Barfi in one genre because it has got a little bit of romance comedy drama and slice of life feel to it”Yes there is a little bit of romantic angle in them but I don’t choose scripts on the basis of ‘Oh it should be like this’ I go with an open mind when I go for narrations and if I like a script I just go with it” said Kriti who walked the ramp for Sukriti & Aakriti at the India Beach Fashion Week 2017 here earlier this month Kriti said she is more of an “instinctive person” and if an action film comes her way and she likes the content she would go with it In just three years Kriti has managed to have a strong fan base The actress has 979K followers on Twitter and 6 million followers on Instagram Does that make her feel like she’s arrived “Not yet Very honestly speaking because I think sometimes I do feel that people forget that I am just two films old My first film was more or less figuring myself out… When you don’t come from a Bollywood background you don’t know anything about the film world So you are basically learning and you are learning throughout” she said Dilwale was more of an experience for Kriti with names like Shah Rukh Khan Kajol and Varun Dhawan “It was an ensemble project So of course the amount you have as an actor to perform is not so much I have not yet in these two films got a platform where I could explore more as an actor” she said adding that Raabta and Bareilly Ki Barfi are

Related NewsUpdated: March 13 2014 3:45 am Related News Supreme Court is right to ask for clarity on what constitutes hate speech Responding to a public interest petition that sought curbs on hate speech in Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh the Supreme Court has asked the Centre’s legal experts to identify exactly what qualified as such While the Constitution places reasonable restrictions on free speech and sections of the penal code and the CrPC forbid words written or spoken that promote ill-will between religious racial linguistic regional caste groups or communities there is no specific detail in any statute on what kind of speech crosses the line This attempt to bound the limits of hate speech is significant Earlier on March 3 the court had refused to order the Election Commission to restrict hate speech saying that 128 crore people could have 128 crore views and that “all shades of opinion” should be made available to the public who could then make up their own minds Speech can have violent tragic effects and hate speech legislation exists in most free societies including the UK Canada Germany Denmark and Australia The US is an exception in the belief that even the most despicable views should not be silenced with very narrow exceptions like slander child pornography and so on But even in the US many legal scholars have argued that hate speech poses great harm to the lives dignity and reputation of minority groups Given how diverse and unequal India is laws that prohibit abuse and psychological undermining of vulnerable groups are certainly necessary — but the problem is that these laws are used to suppress any unwelcome opinion criticism even scholarship and humour Rather than controlling incitement or intimidation they have created a climate of self-censorship and made it difficult to suggest that some words no matter how obnoxious should be countered with other words Instead of understanding that hate speech is most condemnable when there is a power differential and when it threatens social inclusion these laws have chilled free In such a context the Supreme Court’s refusal to come down heavily on political speech and its belief in the maturity of the public is a refreshing change It is right to ask the Law Commission to define hate speech more tightly and to reduce arbitrariness in the way it is applied For all the latest Opinion
