the sell-out crowd at Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena grew steadily in decibel level and was successful in drowning out the desperate entreaties of a much larger crowd of Chinese supporters as the men’s singles final of the 2017 All England Super Series Premier Badminton Championships drew to a close It was heartwarming to see the classy old Malaysian warhorse put mind over matter shrug off his left knee injury and decimate the challenge of young Chinese upstart Shi Yuqi by a runaway 21-12 21-10 scoreline If the match duration revealed 44 minutes on the clock it was because some seven minutes were taken up by an injury time-out with the official physician tending to Yuqi who turned his ankle at 18-10 in the second game when the result was a foregone conclusion Lee Chong Wei celebrates after winning the All England Open title for the fourth time Reuters The piece-de-resistance of the evening was its final match— the women’s singles title clash between world No 1and top seed Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei and Thailand’s No 5 seed Ratchanok Intanon both strokemakers par excellence and arguably the two most talented female players in the world today In a battle between the 22-year-olds it was the pert Taiwanese girl who reined in her Thai adversary in the closing reaches of the match as Ratchanok stood at 20-18 within a point of bagging the second game and taking the match to a decider Displaying far better lasting powers than the Bangkok native Tai grimly pulled the game to deuce and then forced Ratchanok to push her low serve long at the baseline to take the title with a 21-16 22-20 verdict This was a match of the highest quality with both girls showing outstanding footwork and court coverage and producing strokes of rare vintage on both flanks Rallies were played at great pace and with pinpoint precision using all four corners of the court Neither player could take the finish of a rally for granted since the opponentwould get the shuttle back from a near-impossible position and with dividends attached Little separated the two at any stage of the match; they were on each other’s heels and at each other’s throats throughout the 50-minute encounter If Tai had a slight advantage it was in her ability to anticipate Ratchanok’s best strokes and not be tricked as Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi had been in the semi-final Yes superior anticipation and a distinct edge in physical fitness were what netted Tai the gold Lee Chong Wei had no such problems despite having to bear the cross of a 13-year age disadvantage to his 21-year-old antagonist The Malaysian ace covered the court with greater swiftness than the young Chinese player and always remained in control of the rallies Throughout the contest Datuk Lee a prestigious title conferred on him by the Malaysian government and equivalent to the British ‘Lord’ cleverly used the one-two combinations employed in boxing hitting a steep or well angled half-smash to induce a weak return and then unleashing the 330-kmph sledgehammer either from midcourt or after rushing to the net behind the opening-creating shot Yuqi was totally nonplussed by his rival’s ability to repeatedly hit the lines with his one-two combinations that had the Chinese player at full stretch desperately trying to just get the shuttle back let alone placing it beyond Lee’s reach He was equally bewildered by the acrobatic defence that Lee put up diving full-length sideways to parry a hot smash and bouncing back to his feet in a trice like an India-rubber ball If there was any indication of the knee injury he had sustained a month earlier during training it was only visual – in the form of a thick swathe of protective bandage around the joint It did not affect Lee’s movements in the least even when he had to put his full body weight on the left leg to hit the crosscourt overhead strokes There was little initial indication of the manner in which Lee was to dominate the match The two opponents started the contest cautiously sizing up each other in the manner of boxers circling the ring with defensive postures The initial skirmishes were fairly even with mainly a toss-drop pattern of play It was from 8-7 that Lee made his move using the dribble-and-smash pattern to streak into the lemon break with a 11-7 advantage Yuqi no doubt advised during the interval by coach Li Yongbo returned to the court in a much more aggressive frame of mind and battle hadtruly begun The margin was reduced to 9-12 and then 10-13 but at this point Lee stepped on the accelerator Yuqi had no answer to the stream of accurate smashes to the sidelines and Lee’s one-two combinations as the Malaysian powered to 18-10 and wrapped up the opening game at 21-12 in 18 minutes of somewhat disappointing action at least from the Chinese shuttler’s point of view The debacle continued in the second game as Lee comprehensively controlled the net exchanges and dominated the rallies to build up a 10-4 lead before going into the breather at 11-6 As the Malaysian maintained a minimum five-point lead in the second half of the game the writing was on the wall The turned ankle at 18-10 changed nothing really The wily old fox had put the young upstart firmly in his place It was the fourth time in his illustrious career that Lee was holding up the All England trophy making him the ninth player in the history of the 118-year old competition once considered the unofficial world championship to win the singles title on at least four occasions From the manner in which Lee handled Yuqi it could be safely inferred that the Chinese youngster while a terrific prospect for the future is not yet at the level of the two greats who have dominated international badminton for a little over a decade Lin Dan and Lee himself And that raises a couple of extremely interesting questions on the way the Dan-Yuqi semi-final panned out Super Dan had shown by his quarter-final demolition of the talented and ambitious Dane Viktor Axelsen (considered by badminton aficionados to be a future world champion) that he was still right up there in the dizzy stratosphere reserved only for the greatest of champions Was it that the five-time world champion felt the weight of his 33 years and the dozen summers he conceded to his youthful compatriot Would he have been a little stiff or jaded after his exploits in the earlier rounds of the competition Did he not concentrate as hard on his fitness and work ethic as his greatest rival Lee still does Dandefinitely looked short on breath in the second game against Yuqi and also lacked that special spark that has allowed him in the past to fight back from even well-nigh impossible positions Or – and here the conspiracy theorists would have a field day – was he instructed by his country’s badminton bosses to ‘throw’ his match to Yuqi after putting up a reasonable fight so that the lad considered to be the future of Chinese male badminton could get the feel of the final of a Super Series Premier event It has happened before Indonesia built Rudy Hartono up as the world’s best in the late 1960s and 1970s and without doubt instructed every Indonesian who came in his path – be it Darmadi Muljadi Christian Hadinata (yes the doubles expert was also a fine singles player and has an All England final on his resume) or in the eventide of his career Liem Swie King – to concede their matches without putting up a fight The Chinese badminton bosses have tried playing Russian Roulette with Dan’s career earlier drawing a storm of open and vociferous protest from the man considered to be Roger Federer’s badminton equivalent Dan had opened up to the world’s press on how he refused to kowtow to such ‘match fixing’ instructions from his country’s federation and how he was being treated like a pariah at home for drawing a line on toeing the line At 33 the two-time Olympic champion would definitely be aware of the rustle of autumn leaves beneath his designer sneakers Perhaps he was not as keen to bag the All England title that he has won on six previous occasions and preferred to bide his time to work towards adding to his bulging satchel a sixth title in the World Championships coming up later this year in Glasgow Clearly Dan would have in his sights fellow-countryman and two-time world champion Chen Long and his own long-time rival Lee who has pocketed four All England crowns but has never won an Olympic title or a world championship So does the old dog have one more wag left in his tail For badminton aficionados the title prospects of Super Dan will be a topic of delicious discussion in the months leading up to the stellar event in the annual badminton calendar Written by Amitabh Sinha | New Delhi | Published: June 14 2016 5:47 am Based on a

With the TDP biting the dust in the Lok Sabha polls mainly due to its stance on the Telangana issueChandrababu Naidu’s party on Wednesday said it needs to do a re-think on the separate statehood issue “Our alliance with TRS proved counter-productive It is time for us to do a re-think on Telengana” TDP spokesperson and member of legislative council Nannapanneni Rajakumari said The TDP’s stance on Telangana cost it dearly in the Lok Sabha elections with people of coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions not taking kindly to it It managed only 36 seats out of 123 in the coastal Andhra region and just 16 out of 52 in Rayalaseema Naidu’s schemes like monthly cash transfer and free colour televisions attracted people but have not converted into votes The ruling Congress emerged as a winnerthereby comprehensively trouncing the principal opposition party The TDP also harped on corruption issue with Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy as the focal point This factor was effectively negated by the individual benefit schemes that the Congress government has been implementing and did not pay dividends to the TDP in the end Besides the nine-month-old Praja Rajyam Party cutting into the vote share of the TDPmostly in coastal Andhra regiona political minnow like the Lok Satta Party of former bureaucrat N Jayaprakash Narayan also affected the prospects of the 27-year-old party The

for a generation now It is led by Chief Minister Manik Sarkar known for his clean Gandhian-Marxist image since 1998 But as it seems the saffron forces led by BJP have been hijacking not only the opposition space from Congress and Trinamool Congress but also making their way to capture power in the upcoming 2018 assembly elections Apart from a shaky Kerala Tripura is the last unfallen fort of the Left Front in India led by the CPM A huge amount of money has been injected to hijack the popular rhetoric of working class politics and blend it with regional sub-nationalism BJP has in a very short time made its presence felt in the interior tribal areas which have remained the Left base for decades Most of the regional parties except Indigenous Peoples’ Front of Tripura (IPFT) which is an extreme sub-national party demanding a separate state called Twipraland for tribals have aligned themselves with the BJPTripura chief minister Manik Sarkar Image courtesy PIB The Opposition has been very weak for the last 20 years in the state The Left Front came to power after a very weak coalition government led by Congress that lost in 1993 They knew they were going to stay for long After a brief five-year term by veteran tribal leader Dasarath Deb as chief minister Sarkar took over as the head of the government in 1998 His first challenge was to stop state wide insurgency and restore law and order His government in order to decimate the armed groups and fronts militarised the state One of the outcomes of this militarisation has been the construction of good roads in the interiors which helped the state propaganda as indicators of development In order to obliterate the ideological basis of ethno-nationalism Sarkar’s government expended enormous energy in reinventing the narrative of Tripura’s immutable connection to Bengal visible in the vigorous attempts to rename places and historical sites The renaming of the Agartala airport after Rabindranath Tagore has been resisted time and again by the indigenous people led by royal scion Pradyot Bikram Kishore Debbarman who want it to be renamed after Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya the last king of Tripura who built the airport in 1942 Sarkar is now seen more as a Bengali nationalist than as a communist leader Now his government has sought to campaign successfully to brand itself as the government which has been able to usher Tripura towards development create communal harmony and project itself as a model government It can now boast of achievements such as putting Tripura on the literacy map influencing tribal minds to shun militancy and return to the mainstream and building the modern jail in Bishalgarh Outside Tripura people speak of the purest and poorest chief minister of India but not of the poor population Today in Tripura Tripura State Rifles camps are strategically located between Bengali habitations and tribal villages to keep peace The Left Front in its self-proclaimed “golden era” of Tripura is also in its weakest position It is holding power while crushing any form of ethno-nationalist assertion This has given space to not only BJP but also regional right-wing parties to mobilise people in their own terms The politics of victimhood played by IPFT a regional tribal based party has mobilised the tribal population like never before In regards to their long-standing demand of a separate state Twipraland they have called a blockade of National Highway-8 and the railway link to Agartala on 10 July 2017 Banned insurgent group National Liberation Front of Tripura is also supporting the blockade according to some reports Even CPM ground level cadres are shifting bases citing betrayal by the party They allege that the party practices democratic centralism only on paper while in practice it’s a totalitarian monopoly of power Sarkar is at the helm of affairs Being the only politburo member he is virtually the party chief in the state When faced with criticism at the party level he deals it with the governmental machinery and when someone points finger at him as a chief minister he kicks the person out saying that they are drifting away from class struggle The present cabinet is two decades old and has hardly any new or young face in years Thus the youth have time and again deserted the party The power though Stalinist in nature now is at its all-time lowest self-confidence due to a goof-up in the recruitment of 10323 teachers in government schools which were declared null and void by the Tripura High Court All the 10323 teachers some even married with a family lost their jobs The state has provided them no alternative as the order came from the high court It is important to note that Tripura has no indigenous industrial economy of its own The agrarian sector also is a poorly sustainable one with relatively no growth Thus the working-class politics largely revolves around the 29 lakh government sector employees and pensioners Unlike other states Tripura has a largely homogenous but bi-polar vote bank comprising only Hindu Bengalis and tribes Thus the political strategy is designed centered around the government sector working class mostly The Tripura state government pay structure is still stuck in the 4th Pay Commission of the 1980s There has been a lot of criticism about the government for not implementing the 7th Pay Commission recommended pay structure in the state The state BJP in a memorandum before the governor said that Tripura government constituted a Pay Review Committee in 2008 and a Pay and Pension Revision Committee in the present year against all norms The BJP alleged that the recommendations of such committee have led to a huge gap between the pay and allowances drawn by the state and Central employees officers and pensioners While most states have decided to accept the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission the Left Front government of Tripura refuses to do so According to this report by Tripura Infoway former finance minister Badal Chowdhury had raised the employees issue several times in the cabinet meetings in the last three years But it was Sarkar at his Stalinist best who had not allowed the then finance minister to pass the ‘increased salary structure’ of the state employees in the cabinet The idea is to keep the poor as they are as it works best for the class party to function alleges many Earlier BJP president Amit Shah and Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal had promised to implement the 7th Central Pay Commission at the earliest if BJP is voted to power scheduled to be held next year The state government as always blames the Centre for not providing enough funds to provide an increment On 13 June in an attempt to checkmate the BJP which has already promised a salary hike finance minister Bhanulal Saha announced a massive 1968 percent increase in all sectors of state government Saha told reporters that the average increase for Group D employees will be Rs 4000 for Group C employees it will be Rs 5500 for Group B officials the average increase will be Rs 9500 and for Group A officials it will be Rs 15000 per month There were some other incentives as well like holidays on every fourth Saturday along with the present second Saturday holiday "Although we cannot offer pay package on par with the 7th Pay Commission the government has given its best keeping in mind of its financial constraints” he said According to a press note issued by the state government the upgradation in pay structure comes into effect from 1 April 2017 There have been mixed reactions following the decision Many including opposition BJP and TMC have called it a publicity stunt to recapture the voter emotions months before the election While state Congress chief Birajit Sinha welcomed the move by saying “something is better than nothing” Trinamool Congress is being seen as the third force in the upcoming elections as it comprises most of the veteran leaders of the former opposition Congress party But a section of the leaders led by Sudip Roy Barman is trying lobby with the BJP and may even end up voting for NDA candidate Ram Nath Kovind in the upcoming presidential election on 17 July The internal turmoil in the party has been such of late that according to some reports six top leaders of the party were shown the door The bickering within the TMC which has been seen as a pro-Bengali party since its inception in the state now looks weaker than the Congress Despite the salary hike the government employees are not quite happy with how things have turned out during this long Left Front rule making the government vulnerable to anti-incumbency The tribals have remained a concrete voter base of the communists since the 1960s but this bastion is too under threat In these circumstances it is not surprising at all to see that the BJP with its winning spree all over the country of late has sniffed a possibility of overthrowing the Left rule in the state But before the state poll it is the magnitude of the 10 July protests of the IPFT demanding Twipraland that might add another dimension to the whole political scenario in

Galaxy Vol 2 movie rating: 35 “THERE are two kinds of people” Drax (Dave Bautista) tells Quill (Chris Pratt) early on in the film “Those who dance and those who don’t” But despite all the boogeying and the songs — heard over Sony Walkman till the film throws in Zune (Microsoft’s unsuccessful attempt at taking on iPod) — Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 has space for mostly one kind of people: the family types Leaning towards Fast and Furious’s devoted family obsession the questions of fatherhood and childhood sisterhood and motherhood and wife-hood and girlfriend-hood drive much of the narrative in this sequel to the 2014 Marvel hit While that weighs down some of the zaniness of the first film’s crazy bunch of misfits it does allow director and writer James Gunn to take many welcome breaks from his planet-destroying binge Of the binge and of the planets there are plenty — if you consider weirdly shaped and fluorescently lit outgrowths which differ from one another in only the outrageously costumed people who inhabit them as planets But at another level one has to admire Guardians of the Galaxy’s loyalty to its misfits in making their world or worlds as chaotic as them None of the steel-and-grey spartan-ness for them even as they wield technical wizardry of no less calibre than any other space film At one point before he dons his T-shirt Quill smells it Yes bathing can
