have turned to India to manage transition and ensure revival According to a Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) source an informal discussion already happened at the board level on the sidelines of the Asian Cricket Council meeting in Colombo earlier this month Now Virat Kohli has said he expects a conversation to happen between the two teams at the end of the ongoing tour Sri Lanka haven’t won a bilateral ODI series against a higher-ranked team since 2015 They have lost 12 of their last 16 ODIs including a home series against Zimbabwe this year “Those things (interaction between the two teams) may happen after the competitive zone is over and (we are) done with the series I think that will happen after the 6th if it has to happen from their end I presume But look it is difficult for any team going through transition The interaction I presume will happen after the tour” Kohli said Before that Sri Lanka coach Nic Pothas had said: “We are in a position at the moment that England India Australia all have found themselves in We have learnt from them and spoken to them…” Kohli gave a low-down of the turnaround “One thing that we decided to do as a team was (to) take more responsibility and ownership of what we do on the field playing for the country We just needed to change our mindset It didn’t matter if we were playing against a side that has played 60 Tests each if we are mentally more prepared than them then we are in a better position to win” he said “So we decided to put our heads in that zone where experience didn’t matter much for us It was the fight and competitiveness we were willing to show and the desire to fight for longer periods that helped us get through that phase quicker than what others might’ve faced” he added To be fair to Sri Lanka they

within the city are likely to go away soon with the state government on Thursday promising to bring in an ordinance in the next few days to this effect following the latest order of the Supreme Court in this regard Excise Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule told The Indian Express that the state government was studying the Supreme Court order and would take a decision accordingly In a major relief to the hospitality sector the apex court on Wednesday modified its earlier order banning the sale of alcohol within 500 metres of a highway The court said that the ban would not apply to the sale within municipal limits of a city “The purpose of the direction contained in the order (of the Supreme Court) dated 15 December 2016 is to deal with the sale of liquor along and in proximity of highways properly understood which provide connectivity between cities towns and villages The order does not prohibit licensed establishments within municipal areas” Wednesday’s SC order read For Pune the December order had meant end of business for a number of hospitality establishments as they fell within the 500 meters definition The matter got complicated as arterial roads like JM Road FC Road and Ahmednagar Road were still designated as state highways despite being maintained by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) In Pune district of the nearly 2500 licensed establishment serving alcohol about 1600 had to stop serving liquor There were reports of smaller restaurants closing down for want of business On Thursday armed with the copy of the latest Supreme Court order a group of hoteliers led by Ganesh Shetty president of the Pune Hoteliers’ Association approached the office of Mohan Varde superintendent of excise Pune asking for an immediate lifting of the ban But the decision is likely to take some time Bawankule said that the state government had received the copy of the order on Wednesday “We shall consult the law and judiciary department for the correct interpretation of the order and an ordinance will be issued accordingly” he said Sources close to the minister said in all probability the ban will be lifted within the next seven days For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe chief of RSS Mohan Bhagwat made a very significant observation last fortnight while addressing a gathering of Sadhus in the holy town of Haridwar In a reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi Bhagwat told the gathering that "our Abhimanyu has entered the Chakravyuh . And he will surely emerge out of it successfully" Bhagwat described the Indian political/ bureaucratic system as constituting the Chakravyuh which Modi was battling In the Indian epic Mahabharata Chakravyuh is a complex battle formation that the Kauravas lay down to trap the young Pandava warrior Abhimanyu The Pandavas enable Abhimanyu to enter the Chakravyuh but no one has the knowledge as to how he would emerge alive and victorious from the complicated battle formation Of course Abhimanyu gets killed after offering a ferocious fight The RSS chief is sincerely wishing that Narendra Modi emerges from this complex battle formation unscathed In a sense Mohan Bhagwat may want to liken himself to Yudhishter the eldest of the Pandavas who actively helped Abhimanyu enter the Chakravyuh Bhagwat did singularly help Modi to become Prime Minister Narendra Modi AFP But today it appears that Bhagwat and the wider Sangh Parivar members themselves are part of the Chakravyuh aimed at trapping Narendra Modi How else do you explain one controversy after another being created by the Sangh Parivar elements at a time when Parliament is in session and the NDA government is trying to bring various important legislations relating to the economic reforms agenda Parliament has been disrupted by highly communal and divisive issues like forced large scale conversion of a Muslims to Hinduism The Prime Minister is not publicly condemning such acts because the culprits belong to the Sangh Parivar Another BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj describes Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a patriot Godse is being lionised and celebrated by Hindutva zealots in Maharashtra Former MP and Bajrang Dal leader from UP Vinay Katiyar says Omar Abdullah was a Hindu three generations ago in the context of Sangh Parivar’s ongoing conversion campaign On the same day Ram Naik Governor of UP and an old Parivar hand says Ram Mandir must be built as soon as possible Mind you all this goes on when Parliament us in session and Narendra Modi is personally engaged in a summit meeting with Russian President Vladmir Putin What sort of imagery of "modern India" will Putin carry back to Russia So can Mohan Bhagwat now explain whether the Sangh Parivar itself is contributing to the "Chakravyuh" designed to trap their "Abhimanyu" The conversion controversy comes close on the heels of Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti’s remarks on the illegitimacy of all Indian citizens who are not "sons of Ram" Parliament got paralysed for some days as the opposition asked for the Sadhvi’s resignation from the government Prime Minister Modi merely sought forgiveness for the Sadhvi because of her "background" If Mohan Bhagwat and the Sangh Pativar are now publicly embarrassing the Prime Minister it is something most political analysts had anticipated when NDA came to power It was only a matter of time that sections of the Parivar would start making demands on the government After fighting Lok Sabha elections on a development platform but with covert and coded communal messaging it was only a matter of time before Narendra Modi would be trapped by the Sangh Parivar which helped him win a thumping majority It appears the Sangh is not in a mood to let Modi leave a legacy which is predominantly that of a development oriented Prime Minister This is not surprising because Narendra Modi himself had been very much part of the grand strategy of the Sangh Parivar to build a new social chemistry of fusing Hindutva with backward caste politics Modi as a backward caste leader combined with the image of "Hindu Hriday Samrat" was clearly central to Mohan Bhagwat’s thinking when he pushed for Modi’s elevation as the Prime Miniterial candidate in September 2013 The RSS seems to have been working on this elaborate plan for a while This became quite evident when the BJP MPs last week staged a dharna to protest the opposition’s concerted attack on a "woman of lower caste"The caste card came out because the BJP was clearly on the backfoot Modi sought forgiveness on behalf of Niranjan Jyoti citing her "background" Here again Modi seemed to have left a coded message Was Modi referring to her background as a Dalit or as a Hindu preacher If one looks at the subtext of such statements it becomes somewhat clear that the Sangh is working on radicalisation of the Dalits and Backwards toward Hindutva Many of the aggressive Sangh Parivar outfits such as Bajrang Dal have promoted backward caste leaders in the past For instance Vinay Katiyar was built as a Bajrang Dal leader in the 1990s to spearhead young zealots in the Ram Temple campaign Later he became a Member of a Parliament from Faizabad There are other Sangh/BJP sympathisers like Baba Ram Dev who is also a backward(Yadav) RSS has promoted a several backward leaders with Saffron passions in the past few years The only political outfits who have understood this deep RSS strategy are the current backward caste leaders like Nitish Kumar Mulayam Singh Yadav Lalu Yadav Sharad Yadav and so on So they are coming together in a joint front to counter the RSS This will be the new churn in the Hindi heartland politics Bihar elections next year will be a key test for BJP’s long term strategy of injecting Hindutva identity among backward castes However the Sangh Parivar’s grand social experiment of fusing backward politics with Hindutva in ways which could turn violent runs the risk of discrediting the NDA’s overt developmental agenda The vast majority of the young voters are impatient to improve their lives and have very high expectations of Modi Equally the RSS also has very high expectations of Modi in terms of delivering on its underlying programme This indeed is the complex "Chakravyuh" from which Modi will have to emerge unscathed Written by Yoginder K Alagh | Published: June 16 2016 12:17 am Crores of farmers have moved from villages to towns following the laws of the market because the demand for their products was rising in markets in small towns Top News Recognition of senior policymakers in the government that many so-called large villages are really urban areas but are not classified as towns on account of various reasons is a step in the right direction Demographers from the 1990s onwards have questioned the definition of rural and urban and underlined the fact that reclassification of large villages to towns leads to substantial advances in our understanding of the dynamics of movements in the Indian economy This phenomenon was not recognised as urbanisation until the 2011 Census In the 2006 SKDey Centenary Memorial lecture we established that there were “large villages” that met the census criteria of towns but were not classified as urban areas by the government and at that time even in the census (now called census towns) This led to a pessimistic perception of urbanisation I argued then that a part of this pessimistic perception arose from settlements which are “urban” by census definitions not being classified as “urban” While the absolute differences on this account could be small “small” absolute differences can affect the projections seriously For instance if a proper classification was made of the “villages” in Gujarat that were not rural according to the census definition but were not classified as towns the rate of change in urbanisation in the state would be twice that which is currently planned for This anomaly was recognised in the 2011 Census In Gujarat the 2006 projections have turned out to be accurate for 2011 The pattern is similar in agriculturally advanced states like Punjab in contrast to industrially advanced Gujarat and a relatively backward state like Bihar In all we are talking about a million or more farmers having moved to census towns Policymakers have been forced to recognise this phenomenon for 2011 but are still resisting its implications for future planning which is a terrible mistake The 2011 Census shows that this trend was prevalent in the whole country and the increase in the population of census towns was roughly equivalent to the increase in the rate of urbanisation of the country The census authority was saying that more than 4 crore Indians had moved from villages to urban areas which were not officially classified as municipalities notified towns or cantonments and were not counted as urban In the 11th plan (2007-2012) this problem was finally recognised The base numbers were changed but corrections were not factored in the projections of urban population This conundrum continues What it really means is crores of farmers have moved from villages to towns following the laws of the market because the demand for their products was rising in markets in small towns This was particularly true for milk and animal husbandry products like eggs poultry and so on and fruits and vegetables But these were not officially taken into account and therefore the provision to build infrastructure in market towns — markets storage facilities processing of agriculture commodities roads communication infrastructure — was not provided to the extent needed The next round of population projection is not yet ready The Technical Group on Population Projections is still working on it This time the pressure to provide backup to the Five Year Plan (FYP) is not there since there is no FYP The ministries may rely on earlier statistics and projections of rural and urban population Now that an important official of the NITI Ayog has recognised this problem the ministries hopefully will be pushed to factor in these changes in their workplan The Expert Group on Population Projection will hopefully submit its report soon and many infrastructure planning decisions which have to take into account population projections will get to work with the correct set of numbers on rural and urban population and migration from rural to urban areas The writer former vice-chancellor of Jawaharlal

Cup tournament in the U-17 category India who qualified automatically for being the host country saw the best and worst of Indian football in this one week The lads in blue lived a dream that made even the senior players jealous The country’s footballing spirit came out since the start of the tournament on October 6 as fans came out in huge numbers to watch and support their biggest moment in the sport take place in front of their eyes From football enthusiasts to celebrities support poured on the selected young players from all parts of the country For a few days the country forgot their religion – cricket India played three groupstage matches before bowing out of the tournament going down 3-0 against USA 2-1 against Colombia and finally 4-0 against Ghana Here are the five talking points from India’s journey in the FIFA World Cup U-17 for the first time: India display surprisingly impressive skills India’s opening and second match was a pleasant surprise for their own country who were impressed by the Colts’ impressive skills Luis Norton de Matos’ side not only drew the interest of the cricket-crazy nation but also attracted eyeballs from two of the biggest clubs in world – Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur There have also been reports that Turkish giants Galatasaray attended India’s match against Ghana eyeing a potential spot for inclusion within their Youth Academy setup A number of players have done remarkably well in the ongoing tournament From keeper Dheeraj Singh to captain Amarjit Singh Kiyam the side has made news for showing grit against big teams Among others Komal Thatal Jeakson Singh Aniket Jadhav and Anwar Ali have become known names through the tournament India’s first FIFA World Cup goal against Colombia Indian football history was created on Monday night at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi as midfielder Jeakson Thounaojam netted India’s first goal in a FIFA World Cup Trailing 1-0 to Colombia in the second half India won a corner that Jeakson headed home His short-lived equaliser sent the home crowd into raptures Few minutes before nobody knew about a lad called Jeakson After the match the entire country talked about him And why wouldn’t they He gave the country devoid of football love and attention some hope Hope that India will one day be a football giant a football power to reckon with Fun fact: Jeakson hails from Manipur but is fluent in Punjabi and is the cousin of India U-17 captain Amarjit Singh Kiyam The great wall of India – Dheeraj Dheeraj Singh’s Neuer-like saves and determination has impressed critics and fans alike His interventions and crucial saves have ensured respectable scorelines (not against Ghana though) He was expected to be the busiest of the players on the field His resolve with long rangers was tested throughout the tournament The 5’9″ tall lad also sought praise from Baichung Bhutia who said “Dheeraj is the most improved player since I last watched them play He is India’s stalwart at the back He is not only India’s find of the tournament but of the World Cup in my opinion” India’s physical inferiority in front of other teams Size does matter Yes there are world-class footballers who do not have the build of athletes like Lionel Messi but those happen to be excecptions Those happen to be few in the team If the entire team looks weak and meagre the team would not survive for long Indian colts had the skills but were too light-weight to buckle under pressure Let’s take the example of Komal Thatal in the match against USA He displayed sublime skills but the ball was always snatched from him by the mightier opponents And even de Matos realises this weakness “You cannot be a good gymnast if you are very tall or you cannot be an excellent basketball player if you are of 160 metres For certain positions height and size does matter” he had said House full yet still empty There was a lot of confusion among the fans as well as the media when the FIFA U-17 World Cup refused to sell more tickets saying that the stadium was sold out but there were clearly thousands of empty seats After reports suggested that the government bought tickets to avoid an embarassing situation the Local Organising Committee released a statement saying “A ticket is sold for a particular match day and not for either of the games A good example for this would be the match days one and two at the New Delhi venue even though tickets were sold out for the opening fixtures (500 pm kick-off) on both days the stands were sparsely filled The second game (800 pm kick-off) which featured the hosts however had more people attending it making the stands seem more filled” Another reason given for not selling every seat ticket was security concerns as FIFA rules state that
