Natural landmarks in Africa Asia and Australia added to UN heritage list

24 June 2011Lake districts in China and Kenya, a coastline in Australia, a fishing delta in Senegal and a string of Japanese islands were today added to the World Heritage List, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) reported. Lake districts in China and Kenya, a coastline in Australia, a fishing delta in Senegal and a string of Japanese islands were today added to the World Heritage List, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) reported.UNESCO identified the Kenya Lake System in the Great Rift Valley, Australia’s Ningaloo Coast, the Ogasawara Islands of Japan, the Saloum Delta in Senegal and the West Lake Cultural Landscape of Hangzhou as the newest entrants on the list, which includes more than 900 sites deemed by the UNESCO-backed World Heritage Committee to be of outstanding universal value. The committee is meeting this week at the Paris headquarters of UNESCO to discuss the latest nominations to the World Heritage List. A total of 35 nominations will be reviewed by the end of the committee’s session on 29 June.The Kenya Lake System in the Great Rift Valley comprises three inter-linked, relatively shallow lakes – Lake Bogoria, Lake Nakuru and Lake Elementaita – in the country’s Rift Valley province and covers a total area of 32,034 hectares. It is home to 13 globally threatened bird species and some of the highest bird diversity in the world.The 708,350-hectare marine and terrestrial property of Ningaloo Coast, on a remote section of the western coast of Australia, includes one of the longest near-shore reefs in the world and is home to numerous sea turtles and annual gatherings of whale sharks.The 30 islands that comprise the Ogasawara are situated 1,000 kilometres south of Japan’s main archipelago and are home to a wealth of fauna, including the Bonin Flying Fox, a critically endangered bat, and 195 endangered bird species.West Lake in Hangzhou and the hills surrounding it have inspired famous poets, scholars and artists since the 9th century. It comprises numerous temples, pagodas, pavilions, gardens and ornamental trees, as well as causeways and artificial islands. Fishing and shellfish gathering in Senegal’s Saloum Delta has sustained human life for more than two millennia. The site comprises brackish channels encompassing over 200 islands and islets, mangrove forest, an Atlantic marine environment, and dry forest. read more

Borella underpass closed woman killed

A passenger bus had crashed into the woman when she was crossing the road killing her at the location. A woman was killed after being hit by a bus while she was crossing the road at the Borella junction late this evening.Witnesses said that the underpass at the Borella junction for pedestrians to cross was closed at the time and the woman had crossed the main road near the traffic lights where there is no zebra crossing. Some people in the area said that the underpass at the Borella junction for pedestrians is closed at 8.30 every night and this has resulted in pedestrians being compelled to cross the road near the traffic lights risking their lives.

Cricket drinking culture deterring British Asian players from getting to the top

“They might come and play, but then many would commonly not stay for the drinking. Just to be near the alcohol was not a positive environment for a number of the players.”Cricket clubs raise a lot of their revenue through drink sales and some of the people who played in these clubs found that the drinking culture got a bit out of control. So there were issues around dignity and behaviour that emerged that were not conducive to the way the South Asian players lived their lives.”Prof Hylton suggested that education and training could be introduced to make traditionally British cricket clubs “more welcoming”, adding: “Cricket often brings families together and the cricketers have to think about whether or not that environment is a good environment for their children.”South Asian participants in his 2014 report spoke about the influence of club bars and drinking culture on their ability to create an “effective club identity”.“When I first started, after the game I didn’t go to the pub,” one participant said. “Those that drink will have a drink so that was a social aspect.”In a separate report focusing on local cricket teams in Bradford and Leeds, another participant said: “I get a lot of this, well, the Asians just come and play and then they bugger off home. I said well what alternatives do you have apart from alcohol and the bar, think about what you can offer, have you asked them..?” Muslim England cricketer, Moeen Ali, has previously not joined in on team celebrations because champagne was involvedCredit:Alex Davidson/Getty Images Europe Prof Hylton also said that another issue that should be taken into account is that South Asian families generally prioritise their children’s education over playing sport.He said: “One of the issues that the ECB has got to recognise is that cricket was not as high a priority for a lot of South Asian parents to encourage their children to stay with it, rather than education or work.“There’s a need for the ECB to recognise that and perhaps work with the South Asian communities to raise the prospect of cricket as a potential employment pathway.“The issues at the grassroots have a knock on effect to higher levels.” Moeen Ali Speaking to the Telegraph, he said: “Cricket was universally loved by the people we spoke to.“But the drinking culture in some clubs was a deterrent for South Asian players. British Asian cricketers are deterred from getting to the top of the sport because they are put off by club drinking culture, England and Wales Cricket Board researchers have said.Analysis carried out by Professor Kevin Hylton at Leeds Beckett University found that the cultural environment of cricket clubs was “not conducive to keeping the south Asian players connected” to the sport.Figures show that South Asians, who make up five per cent of the population, account for 30 per cent of recreational cricket players in England and Wales – but make up just four per cent of players on the professional field.The different style of “street cricket” that they play and the importance of education to South Asian families over playing recreational sport also affect their progression, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) research states.  Prof Hylton – who carried out the research on behalf of the ECB – said the cultural drinking differences between white British and south Asian players was a factor that came up in all of his studies.

England ranked worst in world for cyberbullying of students education report finds

Show more As a result, experts warned that it is an issue which “schools really need to get to grips with” and English schools in particular need to “make this a priority”.The international report surveyed 260,000 teachers and school leaders in 15,000 schools across 48 countries and economies.In England 2,376 teachers of children aged 11-14, and 157 heads completed the Talis questionnaires.Australia came closely behind England with 10.6% of principles reporting regular incidents of cyberbullying. This was followed by the USA (10.2%) and Belgium and Brazil (both 9.2%).The USA came closely behind England – with 10.2% of principles reporting regular incidents of cyberbullying.In contrast the OECD report found that the countries with 0% reports of regular cyberbullying were Vietnam, Chinese Taipei, Slovak Republic, Russia, Portugal, Lithuania, Kora, Kazakhstan, Finland and Chile.Andreas Schleicher, OECD director for education and skills, said: “Cyber bullying in terms of unwanted contact or students being exposed on the internet is the dark side of the modern age. But it is something that schools really need to get to grips with.”He added: “I don’t think English schools and the schools system have yet the policy. There are some school systems that make this a priority, establish a policy.”They are sometimes controversial, like in France they have banned mobile phones.”But I do think we can no longer ignore it, or leave it for individual schools to sort out, this is probably something that school systems need to look at systemically.”The report also found that more than one fifth (21%) of heads said intimidation or bullying among their students occurred regularly, compared to an OECD average of 14%.The proportion of school leaders reporting physical and non-physical bullying also doubled from 14.5% in 2013 to 29% in 2018.Education Secretary Damian Hinds said: “These findings reflect many of the frustrations that I heard from teachers and heads when I first took on the role of Education Secretary and underlines the importance of the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy, that I launched in January of this year.”We know that too many teachers are having to work too many hours each week on unnecessary tasks, which is why I have taken on a battle to reduce teachers’ workload so that they can focus on spending their time in the classroom doing what they do best – teaching.” England is the worst in the world for cyberbullying of students, a global education report has found.Headteachers around the world were asked how many incidents of students, parents or guardians posting hurtful information online about students occurred at least weekly in their schools.According to the Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) report published today an average of 2.5% of headteachers reported such incidents.However, England has been ranked the worst in the world for cyberbullying – with 13.9% of headteachers reporting that students had been subject to malicious comments online.A further 27% received reports of unwanted electronic contact among students in their school. This is in contrast to the OECD average of 3.4%. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Flyboard Inventor Fails to Cross Channel on Hoverboard

first_img Watch: French Daredevil Crosses English Channel on HoverboardMr Hoverboard is a cheaper way to be Marty McFly Stay on target Franky “Flyboard” Zapata failed his first attempt to cross the English Channel on a jet-powered hoverboard.The former jet ski champion fell into the sea while trying to refuel halfway across the water.A member of the Frenchman’s team said the movement of the waves required perfect timing, and the landing platform apparently shifted slightly as Zapata descended.“We’re talking about a few centimeters,” they said. “It’s an enormous disappointment … but he will definitely try again.”Zapata was wearing a life jacket and was not harmed.The 40-year-old inventor hoped to succeed in what he called a “kid’s dream” on the 110th anniversary of the first airplane flight across the Channel by Louis Blériot (who won a £1,000 prize for his achievement).“I’ve always been a fan of Blériot and I was looking for a new challenge,” Zapata told The Guardian. “If we can cross the Channel on the 110th anniversary … it’s a crazy challenge.”One that French maritime authorities initially refused to approve, saying it was too dangerous to fly over one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, as reported by The Guardian.Coastal officials on Wednesday authorized the stunt after Zapata convinced them of his safety.One small glide for man…A day later, in front of throngs of onlookers, Zapata and his Flyboard Air took off from a beach in Sangette at 9:05 a.m. local time, his sights set on the landing site at St. Margaret’s Bay near Dover.He was expected to make the 22-mile crossing at an average speed of 87 mph and an altitude of 50 to 65 feet above sea level.Zapata covered 11 miles in about 10 minutes, reaching the refueling vessel as planned. The slight movement of the landing platform, however, threw him off balance and sent him ass over tit into the Channel.According to The Guardian, Zapata—who wanted to refuel his jet-propelled hoverboard in mid-air—was furious, blaming the French maritime officials who refused his request for the failure.(The Brits, meanwhile, couldn’t be bothered either way, as long as citizens weren’t at risk.)Zapata recently wowed crowds—including French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel—when he flew over Paris’s Bastille Day military parade on July 14.Record setterMarty McFly ain’t got nothin’ on Franky Zapata: The military reservist in 2016 set a new Guinness World Record for the farthest hoverboard flight.During an attempt off the coast of Sausset-les-Pins, Zapata achieved a new benchmark distance of 2,252 meters (7,388 feet).Riding the Flyboard Air—an unconventional-looking hovercraft developed by his company Zapata Racing—the 37-year-old shattered Canadian inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru’s previous record for 275.9 meters (905 feet, 2 inches), set in 2015.The French daredevil previously set the world record for most backflips with a water jet pack in one minute. His record of 26 was later beaten by Beijing’s Liu He, who managed 27.More on Geek.com:Amazon Sued After Hoverboard Burns Down Million-Dollar HouseLexus Slide Hoverboard Really WorksTony Hawk Does Tricks on a Real-Life Hoverboardlast_img read more

Gov Walker and Lt Gov Mallott officially register for reelection run

first_imgLt. Gov. Byron Mallott (left) and Gov. Bill Walker. The two filed for reelection today for another unaffiliated ticket. Pictured April 20, 2016. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Governor Bill Walker registered today as a candidate for next year’s election for governor. He’ll be joined again on an unaffiliated ticket by Lieutenant Governor Byron Mallott.Listen nowWalker said being unaffiliated has helped him and Mallott work on issues without concern about party politics. It will allow them to avoid a primary battle before a general election that could include candidates from both major parties.“I think it will be a lively race. I think there will be lots of competition, not for us certainly in the primary, but in the general,” Walker said. “So we’ll see how that plays out and we’ll just continue to do our job in making Alaska a safer place, and work on the fiscal situation and work on the future of the state, in terms of growing Alaska.”Walker said they’ll point to their record, including expanding Medicaid coverage.Lt Governor Mallott said they recently met with Democratic Party officials to thank them for their support three years ago and to let them know they would be running as independents. Mallott said he will keep his Democratic party affiliation despite running for office unaffiliated.Mallott added that Walker has worked to close the budget gap, grow the economy and treat all Alaskans fairly.“I think Alaskans are going to look at what Governor Walker has accomplished in his first four years, and say he did good,” Mallott said.The Walker and Mallott campaigns must each gather roughly 3,200 signatures to be placed on the ballot.last_img read more

Jail is better than enforced disappearance

first_imgJail is better than enforced disappearance, a victim saysThe man was waiting by the roadside for transport to go home one night in the capital city. Suddenly a gang of six or seven people came up and forced him  into a microbus. They tied his hands and blindfolded him. Now one answered his frantic questions. The microbus speeded along.When the abductors reached their destination, the man had no idea where he was. He didn’t realise he would have to stay in that unknown place for the next six months of 2016.A total of 432 people were subjected to such enforced disappearance during the rule of the incumbent Awami League government between 1 January 2009 and 31 July 2018, said the Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) in a news release issued on Wednesday.The rights body issued the release marking the International Day of the Disappeared on Thursday.Among the disappeared, only 250 people have managed to return home until now but they never talk about the horrific experience. Many of them are undergoing therapy to overcome the traumatic experience.Unknown persons identified themselves as members of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), Detective Branch (DB) of police or other law enforcement agencies before picking up the victims, said Ain O Salish Kendra, quoting the victims’ family members and relatives.The families said they could not file general diaries regarding the incidents.The law enforcement agencies, however, always denied the allegations brought against them.“Whenever police receives information of anyone’s disappearance, they try their best to find the person, keeping in constant contact with the family and adhering to legal procedures,” said assistant inspector general (AIG, Media) of police headquarters Sohel Rana.Five people, who were subjected to enforced disappearance in 2016 and 2017, talked to Prothom Alo recently. Their names, however, were not published for security reasons.What the victims saidThe man who was quoted in the beginning of this report, had fallen asleep inside the vehicle. He woke up after reaching the destination. They asked whether he wanted to eat something. Afterwards, they began interrogation about his house, bank account, family, apps used on his mobile phone, friends, social sites and the ideologies of Awami League, Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and militant groups and other issues. They however, kept him blindfolded except the days when they gave him fish to eat.The victim thought he could have made the abductors understand if he were allowed to talk with eye contact. The abductors gave good food, he said, mentioning that he used to sleep on the floor of a small dark room. Those who had quizzed seem highly efficient, he told Prothom Alo.About his release, he said one day a man came and told him he would be shifted to another place. He was released after a long ride, he said. On the way he heard only directions given to the driver.“Staying in jail for 14 years is better than being a victim of enforced disappearance. At least I would know then where I am and why. I do not know where I passed so many days of my life,” a victim said.Normal life still eludesMany of the victims of enforced disappearance could not return to normal life while a number of them had to undergo medical treatment.A relative of a victim who returned home after remaining missing for several months, said the abductors unsettled the man by asking the same question time and again. He does not talk like before. He had been suffering from photophobia, fear of light, as he was kept blindfolded for several months. He can only read larger letters and remains panicked and restless. He does not go outside now.Two other victims of enforced disappearance have been suffering from insomnia. One of them said immediately after being picked up the abductors, they used some sort of chemical on him. Now he does not go outside home alone and always carries a licensed gun.Still missingThe country’s principal opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) central executive committee member Chowdhury Alam disappeared in 2010. In the following years the incidents of disappearance of political personalities continued. Former BNP MP Ilias Ali disappeared in 2012.Persons still missing include war criminal Ghulam Azam’s son Abdullahil Aman Azmi and hanged Jamaat-e-Islami leader Mir Quasem Ali’s son Mir Ahmed Bin Quasem.However, the list of the victims is not limited to political leaderships only. Former ambassadors, university teachers, lawyers and ruling party’s MPs are also on the list.*This report, originally published in the print edition of Prothom Alo, has been rewritten in English by Shameem Rezalast_img read more

PSN stumbles back online for developers

first_imgPSN has begun to come back online, but access to it is currently restricted to developers, and it’s sporadic at best.The news comes by way of NeoGAF with user Kagari who heard from a quality assurance tester at a game developer that access was being granted again. On its own that would be speculative confirmation that Sony is turning things back on, but Kagari has also confirmed with several other developers that access is now available, but it wouldn’t be what you call reliable.If you’ve ever suffered a major outage at a website or company network, you know that when it first starts working again access is less than perfect. However, within a few hours or over the course of a day things get back to normal.Can we expect the same for PSN? We’d like to think so and within a few days developers should be enjoying full access. That also bodes well for the user-facing side to start coming back online hopefully early next week.The only date we have to work on is the end of this month when Sony’s Kaz Hirai stated things should be working again. But we also know that sections of the network are meant to be back online much sooner than that. Now it looks likely to be next week if this information coming from game developers is correct.via NeoGAFlast_img read more

I received a mandate, and that mandate is to fight the corruption that has consumed us,” said Morales, who had more than 70 percent of the vote with two-thirds of polling stations reporting.Original post continues here:GUATEMALA CITY – Comedian Jimmy Morales jumped to a massive lead in Guatemala’s presidential race as counting got under way Sunday, after a campaign upended by a corruption scandal that felled the outgoing president.Morales, a comic actor and TV personality with no political experience, had 75 percent of the vote to 25 percent for former first lady Sandra Torres, with just over 40 percent of polling stations reporting, according to official results.The campaign was rocked by President Otto Pérez Molina’s resignation and arrest on corruption charges on Sept. 3, three days before the first-round vote.Pérez Molina, who is in jail awaiting trial, is accused of masterminding a corrupt network of politicians and customs officials that took bribes from businesses in exchange for illegal discounts on import duties.Prosecutors and United Nations investigators say the network collected $3.8 million in bribes between May 2014 and April 2015 — including $800,000 each to Pérez Molina and jailed ex-Vice President Roxana Baldetti.Morales, 46, is famous for playing a country bumpkin cowboy who nearly becomes president in the 2007 film “A President in a Sombrero.”He has ridden a wave of outrage with politics as usual in the impoverished Central American country, which is torn by gang violence and still recovering from a 36-year civil war that ended in 1996.He began the race with just 0.5 percent support in April.Who is Jimmy Morales?

(GMB) a political association promoting President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 presidential ambition has suspended some of its members for allegedly fraternising with Buhari’s opposition Atiku Abubakar Atiku Abubakar is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate for the 2019 general elections A statement by the Director-General of the GMB Hajiya Fatimah Goni in Abuja on Tuesday gave the names of the suspended members Goni revealed that the affected members had been parading themselves as members of the association in spite their expulsion She however stated that the association had notified relevant law enforcement agencies on the fraudulent activities of the expelled persons whom she said were bent on tarnishing the good name of the association and that of President Buhari “The attention of the Grassroots Mobilizers for Buhari (GMB) has been drawn to the activities of some of its suspended and expelled members who are now parading themselves as executives of GMB and are going about deceiving vulnerable politicians and organisations alike with the intent to misinform defraud and extort them in this season of politics and politicking “These elements have in the past weeks been planning with an evil intent to bring Grassroots Mobilizers for Buhari into shame and disrepute in a grand design using the name logo and letterheads of GMB to make a declaration in support of the PDP presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar “We hereby draw the attention of the general public that the plan intent and actions of these criminal-minded individuals do not in any way reflect the views of the GMB and we by this disclaimer deny and disown their plans intent and actions in part whole and its entirety to be false and of criminal intentions “We in the GMB are volunteers for nation building Our voluntary mobilization efforts for the support of President Buhari is neither for sale nor salable “Our time energy and efforts put in the steering of this organization are with the intention that the administration of President Buhari remains the right choice and the best for the nation in these times when the evil cancer of corruption and its supporting tissues are regrouping to re-infect re-hijack and re-inflict our nationhood “We at the GMB will not and shall never compromise for any article of corruption under any guise whatsoever’’ she said The director-general also dismissed Sen Bukar Ibrahim’s outburst that President Buhari might not win the majority votes in the North East in 2019 But county foresters and local fire officials saw a longer more insidious problem aheadAll those downed trees as they died and dried become potential fuel for any wildfire that might start — added fuel that could push small fires into major disasters And not just out in unpopulated wilderness but right in and around Duluth"We’re definitely taking it seriously We knew we had an issue from Day One" after the storm said Duluth Deputy Fire Chief Sean KrizajThe Duluth Fire Department took extra training this spring from Department of Natural Resources forest fire experts learning the differences between battling structure fires and wildland firesThe department also added a smaller off-road fire truck that can navigate deeper into forested areas than their big rigs They also added more portable smaller-diameter fire hose that can be pulled into remote areas of places such as Hartley Park and Bagley Nature Area that were hard-hit with downed treesAnd the city updated its contract with the Minnesota DNR firefighting program which has the ability and authority to fight forest fires even inside the city limits Krizaj said"We can always call for their help including their helicopters to get at more-remote areas" Krizaj saidFire officials were impressed with how quickly private homeowners sawed and disposed of their downed trees in many cases taking advantage of free disposal options offered by the city and surrounding communities"People got right to it with the help of a lot of volunteer groups too" Krizaj notedBut in undeveloped forested areas inside and outside the city hundreds of acres of trees remain in various stages of blowdown Some trees snapped in half under the pressure of the hurricane-force winds Others uprooted and toppled although many stopped short of hitting the groundIn the short run those tipped trees are delaying the highest fire danger because some of the trees continue to soak up some moisture"We walked the worst areas with county and state forestry people and they explained what we were going up against" Krizaj saidEventually all of the toppled trees will die and dry But because they aren’t on the ground they won’t rot quickly That’s what US Forest Service fire experts found out after the July 4 1999 blowdown across the Superior National Forest Experts thought the downed trees would rot and fire danger drop in about 10 years But 18 years later many of those trees are still intact and ready to burn St Louis County which owns and manages thousands of acres of forest in and just outside Duluth as part of its 900000-acre tax-forfeited forestry system reported that wind damaged trees on more than 3000 acres across the southern quarter of the county (There also was damage in the Ely area from a storm on the same day) Foresters quickly called in loggers to salvage what wood could be harvested but at a reduced price for the countyThe county manages many of the hardest-hit areas in the northern areas of Duluth into Rice Lake including a 170-acre parcel near Hartley Park that is set to be logged Other county land along Howard Gnesen Road also is slated for cutting to reduce fire danger Other hard-hit areas included Taft and Bergen Lake county officials notedIncluding the reduced-cost salvage sales and lost value of timber sales already planned the county lost about $281000 because of the storm said Jason Meyer deputy director of St Louis County’s Lands and Minerals DepartmentThe good news is most of the wind-damaged forest has been identified and where possible logged to recover some revenue and reduce the fire danger Meyer said"We’re still finding some pockets but it’s getting less frequent" Meyer said "We’ve sold just about everything (identified as wind-damaged) and most of that has been harvested or is about to be harvested"The Minnesota DNR reported about 1600 acres of forest damage from the July 21 2016 storm mostly in the Fond du Lac State Forest but also some in the Cloquet Valley State Forest said Clayton Rakes timber program forester for the DNR in the Cloquet area"We got in there to capture that mortality get something (timber value) out of there and to encourage regeneration and reduce that dead fuel" Rakes saidONLINEGot to duluthnewstribunecom for a minute-by-minute chronology of the storm and a look back at photos and video of the damage “To date.

substantially curb corruption The media is all out to boost Anna The question is essentially framed as a fight against corruption: either one is against corruption and therefore for Anna Hazareor one is against Anna and therefore for corruption There is no middle ground that asksfor examplewhether the proposed Bill will actually reduce corruption It presumes that a multitude of Lokpals/Lokayuktas will cover about 14 million Central and state government employees Assuming a modest figure of one complaint per 100 employeeswe may have around 140000 employees investigated every year These complaints are to be investigated in a fixed time Even if one Lokpal can handle 100 cases a yearwe will still need 1400 Lokpals This figure may be higher then the number of high court and Supreme Court judges in the country Are we creating a structure parallel to the higher judiciarybut with much greater powersand very little checks and balance Anna assumes that all these Lokpals will be most honestefficient and just This itself is absurd in an environment where civil society doubts almost all those in elective office even chief justices and military chiefs Their appointmentandin the rare caseremovalwould be substantially outside the powers of the prime minister Incidentally their removal would be even more difficult than the removal of senior judgeswhich is already almost impossible Much more frightening is the power such a Lokpal/Lokayukta would exercise over the senior judiciary and the council of ministers By just a simple threat to initiate an inquiry he would cripple the authority of the judiciary as well as the council of ministers Note that this would run across the entire spectrum: from budgetsto defenceto foreign affairs Most importantthey would even exercise restraining powers over the use or non-use of nuclear weapons In one stroke the prime minister would lose his administrative aura I am surprised the BJP is supporting the Anna movement Do they seriously want to cripple a future BJP prime minister Sadlyin our country the renunciation of power and wealth leads to acquiring a halo along the lines of the Mahatma But should we not ponder whether the individual is capable of handling the huge responsibilities that goes with that halo Everyone cannot be a Gandhi Andjust to remind our countrymenour Dalit brethren very much resent the fast unto death used by Gandhiji at Pune 80 years ago Finallyit is time to condemn these fasts unto death They are blatant emotional blackmail The tactic may have made some sense for the towering figure of Gandhiand under colonial rule But it is totally disruptive of constitutional structure in an elective democracywhere over 80 per cent of voters exercise their rights Lest we forgetthis civil society

go toe-to-toe with the best and finish in the top three beforea dip in performance in the next two campaigns led to lowly seventh and sixth-placed finishes respectively Their sudden fall from grace corresponded to a mass exodus of their star players Ajay Thakur Manjeet Chhillar Dharmaraj Cheralathan and Somvir Shekhar who formed the spine of the team all left at once at the end of the second season leaving the Bulls in complete tatters The Bulls tried to restore the star power in season four by acquiring season three’s most valuable player Rohit Kumar and India’s best corner defenders in Surender Nada and Mohit Chillar The Bulls plugged the holes in their defence added a top raider but couldn’t replace the talismanic presence of Manjeet Their fortunes thus refused to change "Last year I was the only raider I didn’t have any support I also made a few mistakes but it just didn’t happen for us" Rohit Kumar the current captain of Bengaluru Bulls told Firstpost in an exclusive interview The Bulls management along with coach Randhir Singh had to find a way to find a restore that presence There were options in the market but none of those came cheap The Bengaluru outfit decided to keep faith in Rohit who endured a rough phase in his personal life after he was accused of murdering his wife None of that bothered the Bulls as they spent Rs 81 lakh to acquire the raider Rohit is back in the Bulls’ fold and they hope he can lead from the front "Rohit had a relatively quiet season four but if you see his average points per raid (75) it was only bettered by Rahul Chaudhari (8) Before that he was the best player His performances in all the competitions have been consistently good and we have a lot of faith in him to fire this time around" coach Randhir told Firstpost in an exclusive interview Bengaluru Bulls captain Rohit Kumar (L) with coach Randhir Singh (R) Twitter/BengaluruBulls After securing the 27-year-old raider the Bulls had to build a team around him Coach Randhir went for a lot of youngsters His reason behind it was simple he wanted players who could last the long haul "The new season is going to be very long and it will demand a lot of the players In such situation I feel it is key to have a young side My aim was to keep the average age around 21-22 years and we have managed to do so Our team averages 21 and this age group is perfect for this three-month long season" the gafferreasoned The experienced coach who has coached over 20 teams to the national championships semi-finals in his career handpicked the youngsters with a bit of prior experience of playing in the league "Even an extremely talented player will find it difficult to play to his potential in the first season The lights the glamour of the PKL gets to you We have a lot of talented players who played last season and I expect all of them to show their true potential this time around" Randhir assessed Keeping that in mind the Bulls retained Ashish Sangwan a young all-rounder from last season The choice surprised many but for coach Randhir he was a must-have "Ashish is extremely talented I can tell you that by the end of the season he will be considered one of the top all-rounders in the country" he declared Apart from Rohit the other purchase that stood out was that of Ajay Kumar Another youngster Ajay came into the limelight in season four after putting in impressive performances for the Jaipur Pink Panthers who finished as runners-up He scored 61 raid points but his success rate in do-or-die raids was the best in the league His ability in the crucial third raids will ease the pressure on captain Rohit who can remain on the field fora longer duration The captain has been already enjoying Ajay’s presence besides him and has vowed to run riot as a pair"Hum saath me dhoom macha denge(We will rock it together)" said Rohit "He is a very good raider and even though he is my junior he keeps me motivated all the time He is always telling me that there is nothing that I can’t do Even in our room we are continuously discussing strategies" added the captain Ravinder Pahal who was the best defender in season two is also on board The Sonipat-born corner defender had slightly disappointing campaigns after that but coach Randhir is confident the old Pahal will return in Bulls colours The coach though has special expectations from all-rounder Ashish and raiders Harish Naik and Sumit Singh who he believes will form vital cogs of a new generation of the Bengaluru Bulls "If you look at all the big stars in PKL now it was Bengaluru Bulls who gave them the chance Pardeep Narwal didn’t even play senior nationals when we picked him and look what he has done today" the veteran coach said With a bunch of match-winners supported by talented yet inexperienced players the Bulls could grow into the season The high fitness levels of this youthful squad is something that could be crucial for them come October The Bulls had camped in Chennai for 40 days since 14 June to prepare for the season and coach revealed thathis side conducted fitness sessions on the beach to enhance their stamina and build muscle strength "After you have trained on the beach you find it lot easier on the kabaddi mat Those morning sessions on the beach have greatly helped us I can see the team is in really good shape" the coach said The only setback the Bulls have received in their preparations so far has been the shift of their home matches from Bengaluru to Nagpur The Bengaluru-outfit have received extraordinary support from the home crowd even during the tough last two seasons and the shift to Nagpur would be a blow "The players are obviously upset that the matches are not being held in Bengaluru Some of the players who played here last season wanted to give something back to the crowd But this is something out of our control and we hope we find similar support in Bengaluru" said coach Randhir The Bulls find themselves in Zone B that is the more open of the two zones Defending champions Patna Pirates aren’t as strong as before leaving the Telugu Titans newcomers UP Yoddhas and Tamil Thalaivas and Bengal Warriors as the other competitors None of these teams look too intimidating on paper and this could be the ideal scenario for the young Bulls Their players will only gain more experience as the season progresses During this period and even beyond Bulls’ hopes will largely rest on captain Rohit The Bengaluru outfitwill hope he will have the Manjeet-type effect and be their new talisman capable of galvanising a bunch of talented players and turn them into serial winnerss custody. But by that time, it’ll be as entertaining as the first.
