him to jail" an angry Mayawati said "If Modi does not do the same it will be taken that he has nothing to do with the pride of Dalits and his recent announcement of building memorial in the name of

"insensitive" towards Dalits and termed as shameful the killing of two children who were burnt alive three days ago in Faridabad "It clearly indicates that BJP is not at all concerned or sensitive

gave Season 5 its first draw ‘Pulsating’ is probably the one word that would aptly describe the match At the end of it the two teams took three points each Gujarat Fortunegiants took the first point after the first went empty Rakesh Narwal was the man who opened the scoring The next few points also went Gujarat’s way as they dominated the first two minutes But Haryana fought back as they did so many times in the match The first time the scores were level came with just about four minutes remaining in the clock But Gujarat pulled away in that time period and at half time they led 11-8 It was in the second half that the match took a turn towards insanity Gujarat started as the team with a very visible advantage Haryana had only Surender Nada and Mohit Chillar to start with They survived two raids but then Mohit as taken off for Surjeet Singh The latter went for the raid and took two points They then took the lead when Vikas Khandola took two points If the latter minutes of the first half was Gujarat’s the first few of the second were Haryana’s The momentum then shifted to Gujarat when they managed a Super Tackle on Nada The score at the time was 15-12 in their favour Then came the first of many turning points in the second half Sukesh Hegde inflicted an all out on Haryana and suddenly Gujarat were leading by seven points with just over 12 minutes remaining The game looked sealed there seemed to be no way back for Haryana But they saw it They fought back a three-point deficit in the first few minutes of the match and did the same with the seven point deficit they faced They tightened up their defence and their raiders stepped up the ante They then manage four points in the next three minutes Then the diminutive Vikas managed a Super Raid Gujarat were left to fend for themselves with one man on the mat They were all out in the very net minute and the comeback was complete Haryana were level on points and the score was 23-23 The two sides then exchanged raid

the Kalbadevi area of South Mumbai lies a tiny jam-packed road connecting Jagannath Shankar Seth Road to Old Hanuman Lane It is ironic that a street so congested bears the name of the man who in 1896 identified in Bombay the first case of Bubonic Plague which spreads due to congestion “Dr Viegas Street” reads a blue signboard at the beginning of the road “The original name of Dr Viegas Street was Cavel Street “Cavel” being a Portuguese rendering of “Kolwar” or a Koli hamlet Another explanation is that the street derived its name from the well known Cavel Church (1905) situated there as Samuel T Shepherd writes in his book ‘Bombay Street Names and Places’ It was later renamed in honour of Dr Viegas” says historian Simin Patel In 1896 people in Bombay started dying of a mysterious disease at an alarming rate Initially when DrViegas suspected the disease to be plague he was met with doubt and scepticism But he remained certain and after examination by four teams of experts was proven right “A man of the masses” as Kalpsih Ratna’s book “Room 000” (an in-depth narrative of the 1896 plague) calls him Dr Viegas was used to the winding tiny streets of the poorer parts of Bombay He made house calls to the poor often for no charge His merit lay not only in his medical brilliance but also in his ability to exercise it tirelessly with a deep sense of compassion Thus he was well acquainted with the populace and deeply invested in it; he is said to have inoculated 18000 patients of the plague at great personal risk while running campaigns to clean up slums In 1906 he contested elections and became the first Indian Christian president of the municipal corporation In this position he went on to further his agenda of improving public health and the conditions of the down-trodden Dr Viegas Street today greets you with the shouts of men busy loading and unloading trucks textile stores large packages stacked six feet high vehicles and handcarts competing for space and if you are lucky a little space on the pavement for you to walk on “It is a transit street used mainly for transportation of goods It gets very crowded at times but that is a part of life” says Tejinder Singh

Madhubala have a lovers tiff She tells him how lovely she is while he is only concerned with the fact that she forgot to settle her bill for car repairs at his garage for the princely sum of panch rupaiya barah anna (Rs 575; things were cheap in those days) That is very much the way Mulayam Singh Yadav and Mamata Banerjee have behaved with the Congress They had been invited to admire the sterling qualities of Pranab Mukherjee as the presidential candidate of UPA-II Theyhoweverwant to extract large sums of money from the Centre for their States The introduction of extra names in the contestespecially that of the PMseems merely to be tough bargaining for Central grants Give us the money we ask for and some more if you want your candidate to go through If notwe will rain on your parade and foist one of our candidates seemed to be their message If that is the game and that is one plausible interpretation of the intervention on Wednesday lastwe now know how the Congress can react Congress has just told them to get lost and hope that the qualities of Pranab Mukherjee would appeal to BJP as well and hence there is no need to placate TMC and SP This is risky but at least it keeps the economics of Centre-State grants away from power games If that is the logic behind the decision of the Congress/UPAthen it puts the Mulayam-Mamata duo in some danger Not so much that they would not get as much money out of the Centre as they would like Mulayam may yet get his way as the Congress needs his help in UP in 2014 unless they are willing to get together with Mayawati But Mamata will now struggleespecially if the CPM will vote for Pranab Much more to the point would be the position of the BJP It has been bounced into supporting Kalam unless now it falls back on formalities and says it never backed him for 2012 If it is also true that Dr Kalams consent was not taken beforehandhe may also decline to run A contest between Kalam backed by NDA plus TMC ( Mulayam may have to reconsider his position given his secular pretensions) may not find it easy to win against Pranab backed by UPA minus TMC but plus BSP and the Left If sowhy should he be made to suffer the humiliation of defeat Mamatas impatience has cost her dear Sonia Gandhi has managed to lead Mamata into making an egregious error and given her a cause to walk out of UPA Good riddance for the UPA as it can now pursue policies which Mamata was needlessly holding at ransom Congress also can rejoice as the incumbent advantage will erode soon for Mamata and she knows it The Congress will cosy up with the Left again at least for 2012 and who knows may be for 2014 as well As far as Mulayam is concernedSonia Gandhi must have a feeling of déjà vu This is a repeat of the 1999 episode when there was a serious misunderstanding/doublecross between her and Mulayam Despite wooing Mulayam at the third anniversary celebration of UPA-IIhe has walked away from her What will BJP do It has been embarrassed by Mamata If it floats another candidate than Dr Kalamit will look like it is betraying its own previous choice Whoever it runscannot win against Pranab It will have to secure its Vice Presidential nominee (and Jaswant Singh is an excellent choice) and hope Congress/UPA does not spoil his prospects It thought like everyone else did that Congress will leave it to the last to announce its candidate Now Mulayam-Mamata have forced Congress into an early and decisive move BJP should know that in politics you can always rely on your enemies to do the expected; it is your allies you have to
