WASHINGTON — The China Development Bank’s $395 million loan to Costa Rica for expanding the highway that links San José to the Caribbean port of Limón is part of a dramatic surge in Chinese financing across Latin America.Last year, despite sluggish economic growth in China that has made worldwide headlines, funding from the state-run China Development Bank (CDB) and the Export-Import Bank of China reached a near-record $29 billion — nearly triple the amount loaned in 2014. That amount is more than last year’s funding from the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) combined.“While Western development banks have been on the retreat, Chinese banks have doubled down,” said Kevin P. Gallagher, co-director of Boston University’s Global Economic Governance Initiative (GEGI).Gallagher, speaking at a Feb. 11 conference organized by the Washington-based Inter-American Dialogue, said that in 2015, World Bank lending to the region fell 5 percent to $8 billion, while IDB lending dropped by 14 percent to $11.5 billion.“The U.S. Ex-Im Bank, which the region usually relies on for $2-3 billion a year, was dormant and controversial, and absent from the scene,” said Gallagher, who runs GEGI with his Chinese colleague, Fei Yuan.At the same time, Gallagher said, “2015 saw the establishment of $35 billion worth of multilateral financing platforms for Latin America, a $20 billion China-Latin America Industrial Investment Fund, $10 billion in special loans by the CDB for Latin American infrastructure, and $5 billion in new finance from the China-Latin America Cooperation Fund.” Margaret Myers, director of the Inter-American Dialogue’s China and Latin America Program, and Kevin Gallagher, co-director of Boston University’s Global Economic Governance Initiative, share a Feb. 11 panel in Washington DC on Chinese government bank financing in Latin America. Larry Luxner/The Tico TimesAccording to GEGI’s latest estimates, CDB and the Export-Import Bank of China have loaned upwards of $125 billion to the region since 2005. Last year’s total was topped only by lending in 2010, when the total exceeded $35 billion.As in previous years, the bulk of loans in 2015 from Chinese government banks to the region went to four countries: Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador and Venezuela. Last year, those four countries accounted for 95 percent of total Chinese lending to Latin America, with 34 percent — or around $10 billion — going to economically troubled Venezuela, which like Ecuador has weaker access to global capital markets.Yet last year also marked a first: Costa Rica and the Caribbean island of Barbados received financing from Chinese state banks for the first time. Barbados got a small commercial loan from China Eximbank to rehabilitate the historic Sam Lord’s Castle Hotel — which will open in 2018 as a Wyndham Grand Resort — while financing to expand Costa Rica’s Route 32 finally won approval after contentious debate by Costa Rican lawmakers.“Absolutely this has a lot to do with the fact that Costa Rica is the only country in Central America that officially recognizes the PRC [People’s Republic of China] over Taiwan,” said Margaret Myers, director of Inter-American Dialogue’s China and Latin America Program, in answer to a question from The Tico Times.“Costa Rica has a free-trade agreement with China and has received some gifts from China, including construction of a stadium and offers of financing,” she explained. “This roadway is one; there’s also talk of financing a refinery, but there’s been very little progress made on that at all. But the highway has marched forward.” Feh Yuan, co-director of Boston University’s Global Economic Governance Initiative, speaks Feb. 11 at an Inter-American Dialogue event in Washington DC on Chinese government bank financing in Latin America. Larry Luxner/The Tico TimesThe proposed $1.3 billion upgrade to the Moín refinery, located on Costa Rica’s northern Caribbean coast, was to have received $900 million in Chinese financing. But that project has stalled amid political disputes, Boston University’s Yuan said.“It has not been approved because lawmakers protested [over] the environmental and social impact,” she said. “Costa Rica has been very cautious about establishing deeper financial ties with Chinese companies and banks. For countries like this that have higher environmental standards, there’s a long road ahead.”Even so, the Inter-American Dialogue’s Myers explained, “countries that do not recognize the PRC, specifically Honduras and Guatemala, have received more money on the table than Costa Rica has. But Costa Rica is the only one where we see any examples of state-to-state financing.”Across Latin America, China’s focus is on infrastructure projects — especially those that will benefit China, such as a proposed 3,300-mile, $10 billion railway to carry China-bound commodities from Rio de Janeiro to Peru’s Pacific port of Arequipa.Myers cited several reasons for Beijing’s sudden interest in the region. First, the Chinese are developing increasingly stronger ties with Latin American governments. Second, CDB and Eximbank received injections of base capital in 2015 — “and this is in stark contrast to the World Bank and the U.S. Ex-Im Bank,” she said.“In addition, overseas opportunities look a lot more fruitful than opportunities at home,” given China’s domestic stagnation and financial instability, she said. “There are more possibilities abroad as exchange rates go down. A lot of companies and projects are put on the auction block.”Moreover, China has found itself overexposed, and the Washington-based international financial institutions are retreating, largely because rising U.S. interest rates have triggered considerable capital outflows and Chinese banks aren’t as burdened by credit rating agencies as their counterparts in the United States.“Western development banks are not providing much financing,” she said, “so they’re calling everyone they can, and the Chinese are answering the phone.” Facebook Comments Related posts:Panama and ‘Panama Papers’ law firm under the media’s lenses Football: Messi denies tax evasion in Panama Papers scandal Costa Rica to host third International Sustainable Building Congress Travel Alert: Route 32 to Limón to close for two days this week read more

universal translator has long been a fixture of science fiction not to mention a dream of inventors and linguists since long before computers existed The granodiorite slab announcing the kingly reign of Ptolemy V in Egypt circa 196 BC better known as the Rosetta Stone might be considered an early stab at the idea In the 1930s two inventors filed patents for "mechanical dictionaries" promising to translate words in real time And in more recent decades firms ranging from NEC to Jibbigo have periodically tried to crack the problem But as practical reality the idea has been perennially delayed

giant bought Skype for $85 billion in 2011) The program is expected to reach a major milestone near the end of March Late last year Google announced its translation app for text would include a "conversation mode" for the spoken word Baidu the so-called Google of China has had a similar feature available in its home market for several years And the forthcoming release of the Apple Watch a

in the history of translation Cold War footage from 1954 captured one of the earliest machine translators in action One of the lead researchers predicted that legions of these machines might be used to monitor the entirety of Soviet communications "within perhaps 5 years" The demonstration helped generate a surge of government funding totalling $3 million in 1958 or $24 million in present-day dollars But by the 1960s the bubble had burst The government convened a panel of scientific experts to survey the quality of machine translations They returned with an unsparing critique Early translations were "deceptively encouraging" the Automatic Language Processing Advisory Committee wrote in a 1966 report Automatic translation the panel concluded "serves no useful purpose without postediting and that with postediting the overall process is slow and probably uneconomical" Funding for machine translation was drastically curtailed in the wake of the report It would be the first of several boom and bust cycles to buffet the research community To this day researchers are loath to predict how far they can advance the field "There is no magic" says Chris Wendt who has been working on machine translation at Microsoft Research for nearly a decade But he admits that the latest improvements resulting from artificial intelligence can at times be mystifying "There are things that you dont have an explanation for why it works" he says Wendt works out of Building 99 Microsofts research hub on the western edge of its Redmond campus The buildings central atrium is wrapped by four floors of glass-walled conference rooms where Microsoft engineers and researchers can be seen working on pretty much any project they please The open-ended aspect of their work is a point of pride enshrined in the labs mission statement "It states first and foremost that our goal as an institution is to move the state of the art forward" said Rick Rashid in 2011 twenty years after he launched the lab according to a Microsoft blog post celebrating the milestone "It doesn’t matter what part of the state of the art we’re moving forward and it doesn’t say anything in that first part of the mission statement about Microsoft" In other words if Microsofts researchers want to tinker with strange and unproven technologies say motion-sensing cameras or holographic projectors nobody is likely to stop them In the mid-2000s there were few technologies quite as strange and unproven as "deep neural networks" algorithms that can parse through millions of spoken words and spot the underlying sound patterns Say "pig" for instance and the algorithm will identify the unique sound curve of the letter "p" Expose it to more "p" words and the shape of that curve becomes more refined Before long the algorithm can detect a "p" sound across multiple languages and exposure to those languages further attunes its senses "P" words in German (prozent) improves its detection of "p" words

Microsofts research team in 2011 Error rates in transcription for instance plummeted by 50%from one out of every four words to one out of eight Until then the misunderstood word was one of the most

on the speech recognition part brought the error rate low enough to attempt translation" Speaking into Skype Translator the commercial face of all of Microsoft’s linguistic research shows how far things have come The sound of your voice zips into Microsofts cloud of servers where it is parsed by a panoply of software developed by the company The team that developed those green squiggly lines

it with a concert of a group I like" from which I gathered that she wanted to see a concert during her visit I asked her if the program often faltered in her experience "In the beginning" came the translated reply "but each time it gets better Its like one child first There were things not translated but now hes a teenager and knows a lot of words" With some 40000 people signed up to use Skype Translator it has been getting a crash course in the art of conversation and those words could work wonders on its error rates An odd quirk of machine translation systems is that they tend to excel at translating European Union parliamentary proceedings For a long time the EU produced some of the best training data out there: a raft of speeches professionally translated into dozens of languages But Microsoft is rapidly accumulating its own record of casual conversations Users of the preview version are informed that their utterances may be recorded and stored in an anonymous shuffled pile that makes it impossible to trace the words back to their source Microsoft stresses The team expects the error rate to drop continuously as Skype Translator absorbs slang proper names and idioms into its system Few companies can tap such a massive corpus of spoken words "Microsoft is in a good position" says Wendt "Google is also in a good position Then theres a big gap between us and everyone else" For now the Skype team is focused on adding users and driving down error rates with the long-run goal of releasing instant translation as a standard feature for Skypes 300 milllion users “Translation is something we believe ought to be available to everybody for free" says Pall That raises an awkward question for professional translators like Karin "Do you feel threatened by Skype Translator" I

(Source: Reuters) Top News It was bad enough for Jose Mourinho that his first Manchester derby ended in defeat.That the architects of the loss were Pep Guardiola and Kevin De Bruyne might have been even tougher for the Manchester United manager to digest In a resumption of the often-feisty rivalry between soccer’s two most coveted coaches Guardiola got the better of Mourinho as Man City beat Man United 2-1 in the biggest match of the English Premier League so far City’s fourth straight win to open the season was inspired by De Bruyne a player deemed not good enough and discarded by Mourinho when both were at Chelsea De Bruyne scored the opening goal in the 15th minute and played a big role in the second goal in the 36th sending in a shot that thumped the post and rebounded back to Kelechi Iheanacho to tap in “Kevin had an amazing amazing game” Guardiola said With its crisp passing and movement City delivered a footballing clinic in the first half at Old Trafford to humiliate United and Mourinho who acknowledged that he couldn’t wait for halftime to come By then Zlatan Ibrahimovic had reduced the deficit against the run of play volleying home after City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo – making his debut – dropped a free kick United couldn’t cap an improved second-half display with an equalizer leaving Mourinho with just one win over Guardiola in his last 10 attempts and only three in a total of 17 games against Guardiola’s teams There was no sign of the bitterness that marked their meetings in Spanish football when in charge of Barcelona and Real Madrid with Mourinho and Guardiola shaking hands and even sharing a hug before kickoff and at fulltime “I didn’t come here to see about the rivalry” Guardiola said “He wants to win I want to win He beats me and I beat him in the future It’s as simple as that” After three straight wins United dropped its first points of the season Chelsea is the only team apart from City to have a 100 percent winning start and plays its fourth game at Swansea on Sunday Here’s what else happened in the Premier League: LEICESTER It doesn’t look like Leicester will deliver another fairytale title success this season The champions were beaten 4-1 by Liverpool and have lost two of their four games so far Leicester lost only three games last season Perhaps Liverpool could be the unlikely title challenger this time round Roberto Firmino scored twice while Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana also scored at Anfield which hosted its first game of the season following the completion of work to expand the club’s main stand Liverpool has

NewsLondon: It is difficult to digest exclusion after a fabulous season in Test cricket but Ravichandran Ashwin "understands the dynamics" of team composition which led to Ravindra Jadeja being preferred over him feels India captain Virat Kohli File image of India’s captain Virat Kohli at a press conference AFP Asked if as a skipper is it a difficult job to go up to his main strike bowler (in Test cricket) Kohli replied that on the contrary it is easy "Ashwin is a top-class bowler Everyone knows that And he is very professional as well He understands the dynamics of the side that was picked in the last game and he was absolutely fine with it He (Ashwin) told me ‘I support you whatever you want to do’ That’s always been our equation" Kohli said on the eve of the match against Sri Lanka Kohli revealed that there has been "disagreements" with Ashwin but specifically related to on-field technical issues and never ever over selection matters "Yes we do have disagreements on bowling plans and all those sort of things because he is a very smart guy and he has his own plans in place All those things happen "But in this case where team selection and all these things come into play he’s very professional He understands what the team demands It’s a very nice and beautiful thing about him that he always puts the team first He was the first guy who said I have no problems with the kind of combination you’re going in with" Kohli said As a captain Kohli has taken some tough calls including promotion of Hardik Pandya over Mahendra Singh Dhoni but he again stressed on the camaraderie of the change room which enables him to take the call that is beneficial for the team "Not hard (taking tough calls) at all As I said it’s very hard for people looking from the outside but the kind of understanding we have within the team it’s difficult to explain We have a lot of respect among the players and trust among the players" he said The skipper said that he isn’t speaking just for the heck of it but that has been the case "There are no issues whatsoever – I mean I am not saying this because I want to make it sound good but if you guys ever end up experiencing that team environment you will understand what I am saying that there is total transparency "Everyone respects and understands what we decide to do as a team If people react to it differently then it becomes an issue but if everyone is supportive of it then you have no issues at all" Kohli said On Umesh Yadav being preferred over a more crafty Mohammed Shami the skipper’s logic was lack of game time But he also did not forget to mention about how good the bench strength is when someone of Shami’s calibre has to wait for his turn "Shami has not played 50-over cricket for a long time I am glad he bowled really well in the first few practice games but I felt that Umesh Bhuvi and Bumrah had much more match practice and the performances to back that up in the last few series we played" Kohli said "A bowler like Shami will always be in your set up because we know about his abilities and he’s the sort of guy that can win you games in any form of cricket" he added Written by Aashay Khandekar Sandeep Daundkar | Ahmednagar | Updated: January 12 2016 5:42 am Anita Shete (right) and Shalini Lande Top News IN WHAT can be termed as a groundbreaking shift in its age-old practices the Shani Shingnapur Temple Trust has appointed in a first in 53 years a woman as its president on Monday Anita Shete who hails from the family that has previously held “important positions” in the temple’s committee took charge on Monday to become the fifth president of the trust that has been operational since 1963 Besides Shete another woman representative Shalini Lande has been inducted in the committee otherwise dominated by nine male members While some call it a ‘face-saving’ measure by the temple’s trust to save its tarnished image others say this could also be a move to prevent protests by activists who had decided to galvanize a force to break the temple’s “protocol” of disallowing women from entering the shrine platform on January 26 Even as the women took charge they were quick enough to snipe at activists who alleged that the temple showed ‘bias towards women’ by not allowing them to enter the core shrine area After taking charge Shete said that her election as the president of the trust shows that there is no bias towards women and that they are treated equally and respected by the trust However she added in the same breath that her selection hasn’t given women permission to climb the platform “For last five years neither men nor women are allowed to enter the core premises My election as the president won’t change this Nobody should break the rules for the sake of it” she said She went one step further to say that on January 26 there will be a big rally by women in Shani Shingnapur to support the board’s decision “We’re going to muster a big force which will predominantly include women to support the board’s decision to disallow devotees from entering the core shrine area” she said However sources also claim that the reason behind the rally is to counter the protest by ‘Bhumata Brigade’ an organistation that has vowed to breach the board’s protocol on the same day “We support women empowerment and my election as the president will no doubt boost the morale of women in Shani Shingnapur However if anyone is trying to violate the rules and set a wrong precedent we’ll not tolerate it” said Shete Corroborating Shete Lande said “This is an apt reply to those who were blaming the board for gender bias Now that women have been inducted as the trustees there won’t be any objection What the first woman did was accidental but what followed later was a vile attempt to malign our image” said Lande The temple has been at the helm of controversy after a woman entered the close premises of the temple on November 28 and was criticised for her act As a reaction four more

experience of being in conversation with Khan at the studio was “a mixed feeling” “On the one hand it was exhilarating; on the other hand it was painful as I was reliving my whole experience But I had consciously decided to be strong and narrate my experience to the world” Those experiences she tells us involved educating other rape victims about their rights while also learning about the apathy of the police and the doctors in the process “I didn’t know myself that a number of the general diary had to be obtained that an FIR is my right and that the cops are duty-bound to register an FIR” she said She called the doctors conducting medical tests on rape victims as “inexperienced” and “inhuman” “It was rightly pointed out on the show that doctors look at you (victims) with a lot of suspicion and that the police take the side of the accused” The crew of Satyamev Jayate had also interviewed Mausumi Kayal one of the leading protesters of the Kamduni rape and murder incident on June 7 2013 The rape and murder of a 20-year-old in Madhyamgram was the third incident that the show concentrated upon “I am happy that our movement has reached to such a level I hope it stirs others into joining

IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsCatania,Sicily: Prosecutors on Tuesday said that they arrested the captain and a crew member of the boat in which as many as 900 people are feared to have drowned in the unremitting waves of migrants seeking to escape from war-torn Libya Even as the search continued for victims of the weekend disaster coast guard ships rushed to respond to new distress calls on the high seas — two off Libya and a third boat that ran aground near Greece Assistant Prosecutor Rocco Liguori said the Tunisian captain and Syrian crew member were arrested aboard the rescue boat that brought 27 survivors from the deadly shipwreck to Sicily The two were charged with favoring illegal immigration and the captain was also charged with reckless multiple homicide in relation to the sinking A child is carried by a rescue worker as he arrives with migrants on the boat at the Sicilian harbor of Pozzallo Reuters Decrying what he called an "escalation in these death voyages" Italian Premier Matteo Renzi urged Europe to put the focus on preventing more boats from leaving Libya the source of 90 percent of migrant traffic to Italy "We are facing an organized criminal activity that is making lots of money but above all ruining many lives" Renzi said at a joint news conference with Malta’s prime minister Joseph Muscat He compared their activity to that of slave traders of centuries past "unscrupulous men who traded human lives" The European Union foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini said this weekend’s appalling human toll — which if verified would be the deadliest migrant tragedy ever — had "finally" fully awakened the European Union to the evils of human trafficking The EU has been under increasing criticism for lagging in its response to the crisis with two shipwrecks believed to have taken the lives of as many as 1300 migrants in the past week Some 400 people are believed to have drowned in another capsizing on April 13 Stopping the traffickers will be a key item on the agenda when EU leaders meet in an emergency summit Thursday in Brussels along with a proposal to double spending on sea patrols off Europe’s southern border The 10-point plan includes a proposal to take "civil-military" action modeled on Europe’s anti-piracy operation off the coast of Somalia to capture and destroy boats used by traffickers Meanwhile new details emerged about the weekend disaster with Italian prosecutors saying hundreds of migrants were locked below deck unable to escape when the rickety boat capsized off the coast of Libya Speaking at a news conference in Catania Sicily prosecutor Giovanni Salvi said "a few hundred were forced into the hold and they were locked in and prevented from coming out" He said hundreds more were locked on a second level of the boat which also had hundreds of migrants squeezed into its upper deck Salvi said the migrants rushed to one side of the boat as they saw a Portuguese-flagged container vessel approach with the promise of rescue contributing to the disaster "Merchant ships don’t have adequate training for rescues in the seas" Salvi warned "The fact is sea rescues are difficult and require professionalism " As with most such high seas sinkings a precise death toll will likely never be known Only 24 bodies have been recovered so far and only 27 survivors were rescued One survivor identified as a 32-year-old Bangladeshi has put the number of people on board at as many as 950 though Salvi said the survivor had no means to verify numbers He said the coast guard estimated more than 700 people were on board based on its observations at the scene Muscat the Maltese prime minister called the latest tragedy "a game-changer" and said that "if Europe doesn’t work together history will judge it very badly" Renzi said that recent events had proven that providing rescue wasn’t always possible given the conditions of the smugglers’ boats and the delicacy of such operations and that the focus needs to be on preventing the boats from leaving Libya "Continuing to think that allowing them to depart and then chasing after them means putting at risk human lives" he said Even as European leaders grappled with how to respond to the crisis more unseaworthy boats were setting off Monday on the perilous journey Renzi said Italian ships were rushing to respond to distress calls from an inflatable life raft near the Libyan coast with 100 to 150 migrants on board and to another boat carrying about 300 people The International Organization for Migration earlier said its Rome office had received a distress call from three boats in need of help The group says the caller reported 300 people on his sinking boat with about 20 fatalities No details were available about the other boats or their location and it was not clear if they were the same rescues to which Renzi referred In a separate incident at least three people including a child were killed and 93 others were rescued when a wooden boat carrying dozens of migrants who had departed from Turkey ran aground off the Greek island of Rhodes Dramatic video showed migrants clinging to pieces of wreckage and rescuers helping them ashore Prosecutors in Palermo meanwhile said a trafficking ring they had cracked had generated transactions worth hundreds of thousands of euros crisscrossing Europe as migrants paid not only to cross the Mediterranean but also to join relatives in northern Europe Prosecutor Maurizio Scalia said based on telephone intercepts the average cost to smuggle a migrant from Eritrea or Ethiopia to Libya ran $4000 to $5000 (euros) while the crossing to Italy cost an additional $1000 to $1500 (euros) Migrants pay hundreds of dollars more to get out of holding centers and at least another $1000 to travel to northern Europe Payments for each leg are made up front often using the Islamic hawala banking system which is based on an informal honor code in which a relative in northern Europe pays a local broker and the payment information is transmitted to the actual traffickers on the ground advising them that the leg has been paid for Authorities identified the trafficking ring’s mastermind as Ermias Ghermay an Ethiopian who has been sought since the October 2013 shipwreck off Lampedusa that left 366 people dead He is believed to be in Libya Authorities issued arrest warrants for 24 people including 14 in Italy Renzi said the instability in Libya was giving free reign to the traffickers as evidenced by the escalating migrant flows but he ruled out sending ground troops to Libya or a naval blockade of migrants saying that would only provide a corridor for them Libya is a transit point for migrants fleeing conflict repression and poverty in countries such as Eritrea Niger Syria Iraq and Somalia with increased instability there and improving weather prompting more people to attempt the dangerous crossing Fighting in Libya has escalated to its worst levels since the 2011 civil war that ended with the overthrow and killing of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi Malta and Italy are closest to the Libyan coast and have received the brunt of

other from Pakistan — take it upon themselves to rewrite history Or at least attempt to In an hour-long documentary titledAzmaish actor Kalki Koechlin teams up with award-winning Pakistani filmmaker Sabiha Sumar to decode the equation between the two countries through their people In the documentary the two women travelled across the two countries often together to understand the role of religion the social fabric of their countries and the status of women in these societies Excerpts: How does Azmaish stand out Usually we see the two countries through the prism of conflict Or cricket which is also conflict With Azmaish we try to understand India-Pakistan from a different perspective It arises from the need to know this person across the border without the media or the politics playing a role It’s about what the common man on the street has to say More from the world of Entertainment: Where all did you two travel I went to remote areas in Sindh with Sabiha — just very poor areas where women walk for hours just to get water We took a similar journey to Haryana where it wasn’t so much about poverty but more about the status of women and gender inequality that shook us We spoke to feudal landlords truck drivers in Karachi and businessmen in both countries What revelations came to the fore during the project I realised that despite the obvious similarities in culture and language India and Pakistan are vastly different nations The constant blame game and comparison is unfair Both have glaring issues and need to look inward rather than point fingers at each other The project made us wonder if we are looking for a religious identity in India now and what that did to Pakistan I am happy to report that most Indians are still fairly secular More than ever now the two countries need to continue cultural exchange and constant debate Tell us about the people you met I met Vijaykant Chauhan of ‘love jihad’ fame in Saharanpur and he was quite the character He spoke at length and very proudly about fighting Hindu-Muslim relationships I met some girls in Pakistan who told me about their secret ambition of wanting to act when they grow up but how society wouldn’t permit We met some feudal landlords in Pakistan and one of them was very open to conversation despite the fact that we criticised his lot In fact getting Indian businessmen to talk was tougher as soon as one mentioned Pakistan Sabiha was very brave and travelled to areas in Pakistan where she was the only woman and debated with religious heads on Islam What was it like working with Sabiha She is way more experienced than I am; after all she has made a bunch of movies including Khamosh Paani I watched her as a guide since this is my first She is a very sensitive person and that’s where we connect the most She was trying to understand her identity — a Pakistani married to a Sri Lankan with a decade spent in Delhi And I am French-Indian so we get along We also differ of course She fears that India is moving towards extremism and I try and tell her that we are too diverse for one person to rule the discourse What are the other projects you are working on We are busy with edits

blackboard and asked the nine-year-old to stare at it to correct his restlessness Syed Haider Raza was mesmerised and never forgot that lesson The bindu was to become central to his oeuvre one that he described as “the force that awakened a latent energy inside” That force was extinguished on Saturday Raza who had been admitted to Delhi’s Max Hospital for over a month and had been on ventilator

with him from the forests of Mandla to Nagpur Mumbai Paris and California his several homes over the years India though was where he belonged and came back in 2010 after living in France for more than six decades “He never gave up his Indian passport That was his identity” says artist and friend Krishen Khanna who was a member of the formidable Progressive Artists’ Group that included Raza M F Husain and F N Souza among others The then Mumbai-based artists had come together in the 1940s to draw alanguage for Indian art post- Independence “With his death we have lost one of India’s best colourists He was a magnificent artist and we should be proud of the fact that this country produced him” Khanna said Watch Video: What’s making news Born in Babaria Madhya Pradesh to a forest officer and his wife in 1922 Raza took to drawing before his teens and studied at the Nagpur School of Art and Sir J J School of Art in Mumbai followed by Paris where he studied at the cole nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts on a scholarship By then he was already an artist of repute in India with a couple of solos and awards to his credit Known for his expressionist landscapes he often painted the Kashmir Valley The mountainscapes though turned to more structural representations of the French towns and countryside after he moved to France eventually turning to geometric forms and the bindu that became the very essence of his art from the 1970s “He always emphasised on perspective One of his favourite quotes was Maanoh toh Shankar Nah Maanoh toh Kankar and that thought held true for everything including art” recalls Arun Vadehra director of Vadehra Art Gallery that represented the artist He said Raza was at his studio till the very last with his most recent show held in January this year titled Nirantar (Continuous) Ironically his show in 2015 was titled Aarambh and Raza described it as “the beginning of a new vision” “Since I first began painting the bindu it has transformed Like people do Ram jaap I do the same with the bindu going deeper into the subject Of course there are times I feel it is enough I have said what I wanted to through my work” Raza had said in an interview to The Indian Express “He was working with the same enthusiasm He had great honesty towards his work” Vadehra said Later this month the gallery will release a Catalogue Raisonne of

expansion club in Miami MLS commissioner Don Garber told the Miami Herald Beckham’s expansion bid is on the agenda at an MLS owners meeting on Wednesday in Chicago They could vote to approve the deal and end a saga of more than 3 1/2 years during which Beckham has struggled to find a stadium site and secure the land for a venue to house the team his signing with the league in 2007 allowed him to own at a discounted rate of $25 million “We are at the finish line after nine years of work to be sure if we go to Miami we get it right” Garber told the Herald on Tuesday “David had an option but that option couldn’t be exercised without having him satisfy all the things that all team owners need to satisfy — the right capital structure with his partners the right stadium plan the right marketing and business plans — and we’re at that point where I think we are getting ready to make the decisions internally to go forward” Garber did not say he expected full approval of the deal on Wednesday when Beckham’s group will present the latest details of their privately funded $300 million Overtown stadium project to MLS owners While they could approve the deal as it stands and allow Beckham’s group to move forward they might also approve it contingent on Beckham and his partners meeting more requirements such as zoning changes that local government leaders must still approve “It’s a vote Votes can go any which way” Garber said “We’re not there yet I think we’ve got work to do “And perhaps coming out of that board meeting is not an approval but a handful of things that need to happen to get that approval — at which point perhaps weeks later we’re able to go down to Miami and talk about what our plans might be” That would string out the saga of Beckham’s quest to start an MLS team in Miami even more after failing to find a waterside venue then having plans for a location near the Miami Marlins’ baseball park fall through The newspaper also reported some owners are not happy that Beckham’s co-investors are able to benefit from Beckham’s reduced MLS club entry fee at a time when MLS is asking $150 million from new investor groups Toronto joined MLS in 2007

financial clout The states have become more powerful Tamil Nadu for example is an independent nation in all but name We now have competitive federalism States which are large enough to be independent nations have begun to experiment with governance and innovative policies Not all the innovations are well designed Yet there is a value to local autonomy which should be prized India is a nation of many nations like Europe which is even now struggling to be become an effective Union With autonomy comes diversity and differences in effectiveness and popularity Three experiments have been worth watching First is of course Delhi where the ultimate ideal is reduction in traffic and the replacement of the car by the bus Of course it won’t happen like that nor be sudden But whatever the shortcomings of Arvind Kejriwal and the AAP one has to acknowledge the success of the odd- even policy Delhi’s citizens surprisingly cooperated and gave up their law-breaking tendencies The policy was a success It was intelligently implemented Of course it did not solve the pollution problem but it eased it This was an example of intelligent and innovative way of using the limited autonomy the government has Then look at Maharashtra Here a progressive young Chief Minister has gone on to implement a beef ban which is unnecessary and provocative It started with a gesture to curry favour with the Jains Then it lost any logic Banning cow slaughter or beef-eating is unnecessary The aversion to beef-eating has no sanction in the Sanatan Dharma It confuses cow and buffalo meat It detracts from the cosmopolitan nature of Mumbai I can see large business corporations especially those who have international employees deciding to move out of Mumbai and even Maharashtra But this is an example of misusing the power of the State In Bihar the charismatic Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is planning to impose prohibition of alcohol No doubt one should advise people about the effects of alcohol on health and family finance Inebriated men also indulge in domestic violence It is possible to educate people about the costs of drinking and making health intervention But prohibition is the worst option Not only will it affect the revenue but it is also guaranteed to encourage criminal activity Ban alcohol and you make it immensely profitable for illegal gangs to supply it The poor will drink illicit unhealthy liquor; the rich will evade it Why follow the Gujarat model in its failure Bihar needs development not return of the liquor mafia But individual states have the right to cut their own throat In due course Maharashtra will become parochial and other states will attract multinational firms which will distance themselves from parts of India which adopt an orthodox stance about what to eat or drink Bihar will lose revenue and spend money on controlling the liquor mafia Money which could be spent on development But that is the way competitive federalism will work Sensible

Some 17 years ago when a political greenhorn landed in Bhubaneswar after the death of his father many in Odisha must have scoffed at him Naveen Patnaik had spent more than 50 years of his life outside the state did not know Oriya and was probably the most reluctant politician in India at the time Nobody gave former chief minister Biju Patnaik’s son more than a few months in Odisha politics Yet this week Naveen Patnaik took oath as Odisha chief minister for the fourth time Even about two months ago many predicted a defeat for Naveen — he had to battle anti-incumbency sentiments and a BJP surge in urban areas But Patnaik swept the recent polls winning 117 out of 147 seats in the state assembly and 20 out of 21 Lok Sabha seats The Congress and the BJP were pulverised in the state The Congress’s vote share plummeted to an all-time low of 257 per cent while the BJD scored a record 434 per cent This was the first time that the Congress drew a blank in a Lok Sabha poll While the rest of India saw a Modi wave it was a Naveen wave that helped even rank newcomers and partymen with suspect capabilities win the polls with handsome margins in Odisha But Naveen is acutely aware that his flock of 20 BJD MPs will be of little use to the NDA government now that it has such a large majority Also this will probably be the last term for Patnaik and he will have to deliver on infrastructure agriculture and employment growth Though agriculture contributes only about 175 per cent to the state GDP around 75 per cent of the population depends on it With little increase in the state’s irrigation network the sector’s contribution to the GDP has been on a steady decline in the last decade A concerted attempt to improve irrigation facilities could enable farmers to grow more than one crop in a year which in turn would generate higher incomes Despite his promise of raising employment not much has been achieved The promised wave of industrialisation has not materialised Much of the youth is forced to migrate to states like Gujarat Tamil Nadu Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh According to the 66th round of the NSSO the unemployment rate in Odisha was 81 per cent in rural areas compared to the national average of 68 per cent In urban Odisha it was 63 per cent against a national average of 58 per cent But another factor that could have a major impact on Naveen’s developmental schemes is the drop in mining revenues in the aftermath of the mining scam With just 30 of the 170-odd iron ore and manganese mines still in operation the existing industrial units may face problems in getting ore Bolstered by rising mining revenues the Odisha economy had clocked an average real annual growth rate of 951 per cent during the 10th Plan period In 2012-13 mining contributed Rs 535294 crore up from Rs 4586 crore in 2011-12 But revenues are on the decline and may drop further now that the Supreme Court has imposed a ban on more mines due to the lack of statutory clearances It also remains to be seen whether the state government can collect the penalty of about Rs 76000 crore that it had levied on companies in November 2012 for extracting ore in excess of the set limits and violating environmental laws Till date the government has not got a single penny A CBI probe into the mining scam as recommended by the MB Shah commission may bring out skeletons in the government’s closet Naveen’s fourth tenure could also be haunted by the chit fund scam that is now being probed by the CBI The alleged involvement of BJD politicians may turn out to be an embarrassment Last year his government had announced that it would set up a corpus fund of Rs 300 crore for those who had lost money in the Rs 4500 crore chit fund scam But returning the money to poor investors may prove to be a complex and difficult exercise Naveen seems to have perfected the art of winning elections through handing out doles such as cheap rice umbrellas blankets and money for women’s self-help groups But with Narendra Modi as prime minister this might not be so easy Modi’s distaste for doles is well known and it is no secret that Naveen depends heavily on Central schemes with a subsidy component While an aspirational India brought Modi to power in Delhi an apparently contented poor and the lower-middle class in rural Odisha voted overwhelmingly for Naveen’s status quoist politics The lack of a credible alternative also contributed to the massive win But doles do not always win elections Last year Ashok Gehlot lost badly in Rajasthan despite running a government that splurged on doles With aspiration levels going up even among the rural poor Naveen would do well to bring real development to Odisha Or else he could also meet the same fate as Gehlot debabratamohanty@expressindiacom For
