successful comeback from injury with a World Chmpionship bronze medal while Kidambi Srikanth has now won three Super series titles in one season “I think we are being too optimistic” was Gopichand’s instant reply when PTI asked if India have now become world beaters in shuttle sport “We as a system are not ready for that sort of a thing (moniker) Unfortunately there are not many people who understand world level sport and it is too early to say that There is immense potential but the system I think a lot still needs to be done” Gopichand said during an exclusive interview The coach is happy with the progress though during a year where Indian shuttlers have won six Super Series title Apart from Srikanth’s hat-trick Sindhu has won two titles and B Sai Praneeth won one “Overall it has

Commonwealth Games Asian games and World Championship lined up Asked how he plans to make the players peak at right tournament next year Gopichand said: “We will have the periodization and planning for next year but it is going to be a challenge because there are too many important tournaments too close (to each other) There is All England and Commonwealth Games which are close to each other Similarly World Championship and Asian Games are close and then there are tons of other tournaments which decide the rankings so it will be a challenge It will be a difficult year but hopefully we will manage” the coach looked determined Asked if All England Championship is losing its relevance Gopichand who won the title in 2001 said: “It is a changing world All England has the history and lot of older people take it as the World Championship and Olympics kind of a thing But today’s day Olympics and World Championship have taken their place” He agreed that with advent of Super Series Premier and the kind of money associated situation is bound to change “We are having premier super series and now next year we will have grand slams and lot more tournaments have more prize money and

the US on Friday said as it emphasised on normalisation of ties between the two countries "I think it’s clear that Pakistan’s relationship with India is critical to Pakistan’s future and the normalisation of relations between the two countries is vital both to them and to the stability in the region" the White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz told reporters soon after President Barack Obama held wide-ranging talks with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in his Oval Office File image of Nawaz Sharif and Barack Obama AFP In the joint statement after the talks Obama and Sharif called for a "sustained and resilient" Indo-Pak dialogue process to resolve all outstanding issues The references to Indo-Pak ties and the need to resolve all outstanding disputes including Kashmir between the two countries were contained in the joint statement The two leaders underlined that improvement in Pakistan- India bilateral relations would "greatly enhance" prospects for lasting peace stability and prosperity in the region Responding to a question Schultz said "We talked earlier about economic linkages and a broader view of the US-Pakistan relationship beyond just counter-terrorism and I think it is discussions like the one the President had on Friday that helps unlock opportunities for millions of people and leads to a more prosperous region which no doubt will go a long way towards counter-terrorism efforts" On media reports that the US has decided to sell eight new F-16 fighter jets to Pakistan Schultz said no such announcement is expected on Friday "I am confident that in the Oval Office the President did discuss with the Prime Minister how the United States and Pakistan can best continue their robust counter-terrorism cooperation" he said "I saw that report in the New York Times as well — I’m not sure if that came up But I don’t anticipate having any largescale announcement like that on Friday" Schultz said "I can tell you that the President did discuss with the Prime Minister how the United States and Pakistan can best continue their robust counter-terrorism cooperation but in terms of any defence deal like those that might have been referenced in the New York Times I don’t believe any announcement like that is coming on Friday but you should stay in touch with our friends at the Defence Department" the Deputy Spokesman said Earlier a New York Times report said the Congress was notified about the proposed sale of F-16s just days ahead of the Sharif-Obama meeting though it is unclear if it will agree to the deal amid concerns whether the advanced aircraft would be used against India than for counter-terrorism PTI If the pollsters get their predictions on Delhi right on Tuesday AAP wouldhave spectacularly bursted the year-long BJP bubble that drew strength from its three-pronged strategy – Modi the leader; his development and anti-populism rhetoric; and polarisation of people Delhi’s electorate if all goes well will have convincingly told Modi on Tuesday that he is not good enough for Kejriwal; his top-down development-spiel sounds too staid in front of Kejriwal’s bottom up pro-people strategy and people cannot be polarised when they are unified by socio-political empowerment Till a few days back Modi looked invincible and even insolent when he took on his political opponents with his trademark disdain He brought the same attitude to Delhi while taking on Kejriwal and the AAP And his development agenda that the BJP ranks swore by as the panacea for India’s ills appeared to be immune to failure But in Delhi right from day one both the leader and the agenda appeared to be on a weak wicket because what was on offer on the other side was better politics which unfortunately was missing in other parts of the country where the BJP juggernaut had its successful run Narendra Modi and Arvind Kejriwal The most damaging aspect of the Delhi elections to BJP will be how Kejriwal busted the Modi myth While Modi spoke down from podiums he was on the streets moving with people and energising them When Modi called him an anarchist and asked him to join the naxals Kejriwal ignored him even as international media gave a positive spin to the former’s jibes When the leader in Kejriwal looked tall or even taller came dubious allegations that exploded on BJP’s face Worse still were the empty seats and yawning leaders that greeted Modi in his rally Interestingly Modi’s well-coiffed looks which were part of his leadership package appeared too elitist and completely out of place in Delhi where Kejriwal inspired people as a common man with his muffler and sandals He took Twitter by storm as a #MufflerMan while the national and global media went to town about his triumph as a leader of the masses Perhaps for the first time in months Modi was ignored He looked inadequate and lacklustre It was not just Modi the leader that failed in Delhi His development-rhetoric that sought to make India an economic super power and inspired the middle class across the country also sounded empty in contrast to Kejriwal’s development agenda that relied on the real needs of people – water power housing security and a dignified life Modi’s promises came right out of the policy notes of right wing economists who have a habitual dislike for feeding the poor while Kejriwal’s development agenda came from the idea of people’s empowerment As Institute of Development Studies (IDS) noted “empowerment happens when individuals and organised groups are able to imagine their world differently and to realise that vision by changing the relations of power that have been keeping them in poverty” “Empowerment is (also) a process by which people learn to think critically about their own circumstances and possibilities unlearn prior social conditioning and see things differently” Evidently Kejriwal has been able to inspire the common people in Delhi to think about a new world where they reimagined their own economic and political spaces that neither the BJP nor the Congress had been able to offer It’s welfare politics alright but it didn’t arise not out of electoral expediencies than from people’s needs Thirdly what also worked in AAP’s favour is that the party has been able to keep different sections of people together irrespective of their caste and religion While the upper class still appeared to favour Modi who was basking in the glory of Obama’s visit and the nuclear deal the poor and the marginalised – as the higher voter turn out in lower middle class and poor areas showed – stood with Kejriwal In their quest for empowerment and better lives nothing seemed to have polarised them Kejriwal and his politics didn’t divide people for votes but united them which would in turn help him Reverse polarisation worked for both the people and the AAP Kejriwal and the AAP have been able to stop the BJP in its tracks on all the three fronts because of a new political alternative Unfortunately the AAP alone could have done it because other political parties are the two sides of the same coin Congress or any of the regional parties don’t have anything else to offer but the same development agenda compromises on corruption and divisive politics In such a scenario the AAP is a great glimmer of hope for Indian politics That despite its awful initial failures people still stood by the party and its leaders is remarkable The party has been able to empower people who have been marginalised and excluded from decision-making to think about addressing themselves the inequalities they are facing Delhi has shown that this bottom-up politics can certainly work in India and is perhaps the only solution to take on the well entrenched political parties that have all coalesced into an arrogant big block The
