Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas marry in traditional Hindu ceremony

first_imgJodhpur, Dec 3 (IANS) Actress and former Miss World Priyanka Chopra married American singer Nick Jonas in a traditional Hindu ceremony here, after three days of wedding celebrations which included a colourful mehendi ceremony, a friendly cricket match and a power-packed ‘desi’ musical evening.Priyanka looked “breathtaking in her traditional red Indian wedding outfit”, a source told E! News about the Hindu ceremony on Sunday.”Nick did a beautiful job following the customs of a Hindu ceremony. It was lovely seeing how they honoured both of their heritages,” the insider added.From their ‘roka’ ceremony in August to their wedding, Nick has embraced Indian traditions whole-heartedly. Priyanka also ensured an occasion like Thanksgiving Day was celebrated like it’s meant to be with Nick’s family.”One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each others’ faiths and cultures.”And so, planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so amazing,” Priyanka and Nick wrote on their respective Instagram page on December 1 when they shared glimpses of their ‘mehendi’ revelry.Their wedding celebrations were in tune with the majestic venue — the royal Umaid Bhawan Palace, situated atop a hill in this ‘Blue City’ in Rajasthan.Priyanka, 36, and Nick, 26, first exchanged vows in a Christian ceremony officiated by the groom’s father here on December 1. They wore custom-made Ralph Lauren ensembles — a good fit as the two stars had shared the spotlight for the first time as guests of the designer at the 2017 Met Gala.Marking their union here was the Jodhpur sky lit up with fireworks. However, Priyanka was widely trolled for it as around Diwali, she had urged people not to burst firecrackers due to the health hazards it leads to. As a result, she was called out for her “double standards”.Nevertheless, their fans were swooning over some of the tidbits they shared of the ‘#NickYanka’ pre-wedding ceremonies.At the ‘mehendi’ ceremony, Priyanka sported a breathtaking multi-hued folksy Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla lehenga, channelling the ‘desi’ look in every which way, while Nick sported an aqua kurta by the same designers.They also incorporated a friendly cricket match, competing as “team bride vs team groom”.As for the sangeet, a video and photographs shared by Priyanka suggest it was no less than a Bollywood awards night complete with a stage, elaborate light set-up and props as well as energetic performances.Priyanka’s cousin and actress Parineeti Chopra, who performed on stage, welcomed Nick warmly to her family and is all praise for her “jiju” (brother-in-law).”The job of us bridesmaids was to make sure the bride was happy and comfortable at all times. But we did not have to worry about it because Nick promised to do it all his life.”Welcome to the family Nick jiju! I am so so happy that the Jonas and Chopra family is now united,” she wrote.The couple first began talking in 2016 via Twitter, and met in person for the first time at a party for the Academy Awards in 2017.A successful Bollywood star, Priyanka made a transition to American showbiz as the lead in crime drama “Quantico”, eventually landing a role in the “Baywatch” film.Nick and his brothers Kevin and Joe are known for having formed a pop-rock band, The Jonas Brothers, in 2005. The band split up in 2013.–IANS rb/kskadvertisementlast_img read more

CBS Names 3 Head Coaches Who Could Be Fired In 2019

first_imgA closeup of Rutgers coach Chris Ash during a football game.PISCATAWAY, NJ – NOVEMBER 10: Head coach Chris Ash of the Rutgers Scarlet Knights looks on against the Michigan Wolverines during the fourth quarter at HighPoint.com Stadium on November 10, 2018 in Piscataway, New Jersey. Michigan won 42-7. (Photo by Corey Perrine/Getty Images)Not all coaches will enter the 2019 college football season with the same level of job security. Some are on much hotter seats than others.Inevitably, there will be multiple coaches axed at the end of the season. In some cases, a school may opt to get the firing over with in-season and finish its slate out with an interim head coach.CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd placed all 130 FBS head coaches into categories based on perceived job security. There are six classifications, ranging from 0 (Untouchable) to 5 (Win or be fired).Here’s what Dodd had to say about his rating system. The Hot Seat has long been an accurate predictor in terms of job security. Over the last four years, 12 of the 18 coaches rated 4 or worse (67 percent) eventually lost their jobs. (Colorado’s Mike MacIntyre and Texas Tech’s Kliff Kingsbury were listed in multiple years.) Going into 2019, there are only nine coaches on the proverbial hot seat (rating of 4 or higher). Something tells me that, in the end, there will be more than nine coaching changes — mostly because it seems that the coaching carousel is always spinning.Three unlucky coaches were slotted into the final group (five): Illinois’ Lovie Smith, Rutgers’ Chris Ash and New Mexico’s Bob Davie.Combined, this trio went 8-28 in 2018. Smith is 9-27 in his three seasons at Illinois; Ash is 7-29 in three years at Rutgers.Davie took the Lobos to back-to-back bowl games in 2015 and 2016, but has crashed to earth with consecutive 3-9 campaigns. There’s a strong chance at least one of these men will be fired after this year, and all three could be on their way out.Ironically, Rutgers and Illinois play each other on November 2. Smith and Ash could both be fighting for their jobs at that point.last_img read more

Yahoo to cut 1700 workers as CEO tries to save her own

Yahoo to cut 1,700 workers as CEO tries to save her own job FILE – In this Jan. 7, 2014, file photo, Yahoo president and CEO Marissa Mayer speaks during the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. (AP Photo/Julie Jacobson, File) by Michael Liedtke, The Associated Press Posted Feb 2, 2016 2:45 pm MDT Last Updated Feb 2, 2016 at 8:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email SAN FRANCISCO – Yahoo is laying off about 1,700 employees and shedding some of its excess baggage in a shake-up likely to determine whether CEO Marissa Mayer can save her own job.The long-anticipated purge, announced Tuesday, will jettison about 15 per cent of Yahoo’s workforce along with an assortment of services that Mayer decided aren’t worth the time and money that the Internet company has been putting into them.The cost-cutting is designed to save about $400 million annually to help offset a steep decline in net revenue this year.Mayer also hopes to sell some of Yahoo’s patents, real estate and other holdings for $1 billion to $3 billion.Products to be dumped include Yahoo Games, Yahoo TV and some of the digital magazines that Mayer started as CEO. She will also close offices in Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Mexico City; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Madrid and Milan.In an apparent concession to frustrated shareholders, Mayer also said Yahoo’s board will mull “strategic alternatives” that could result in the sale of all the company’s Internet operations. Analysts have speculated that Verizon, AT&T and Comcast might be interested in buying Yahoo’s main business, despite years of deterioration.Mayer expressed confidence that her plan to run Yahoo as a smaller, more focused company “will dramatically brighten our future and improve our competitiveness, and attractiveness to users, advertisers, and partners.”Shareholders have questioned whether she has figured out how to revive the Internet company’s growth after three-and-half years of futility. Yahoo’s stock shed 34 cents to $28.72 extended trading after details of Mayer’s latest turnaround attempt came out. The stock has fallen by more than 40 per cent since the end of 2014 as investors’ confidence in Mayer has faded.“The investment community has given up on this becoming a resurrection story,” said Douglas Melsheimer, managing director of Bulger Partners, a technology banking and consulting firm. “At this point, it needs to be managed for maintenance or very slow growth. Marissa is more of a visionary whose background lends itself to a more ambitious strategy. I don’t think she is the one to navigate the company through job cuts or a restructuring.”Ken Goldman, Yahoo’s chief financial officer, said he got a “neutral” reaction after talking to some investors following Mayer’s presentation. He also acknowledged that both Mayer and he had made some mistakes that they are now trying to correct with this overhaul.“None of us are perfect in all of our decision making, but I feel good about the plan that we put in place and believe it’s the right one,” Goldman told The Associated Press.Some of Yahoo’s most outspoken shareholders, such as SpringOwl Asset Management, already have concluded that Mayer should be laid off, too.Mayer, a former rising star at Google who helped that company eclipse Yahoo, defended her performance.“Yahoo is a far stronger, more modern company that it was three-and-half years ago,” she said in a video presentation Tuesday.She also lashed out at reports that Yahoo spent $7 million on its holiday parties in December, labeling the figure as an “untruth” that is more than three times the actual cost of the festivities.Even after the mass firings are completed by the end of March, Yahoo will still have about 9,000 workers — three times the roughly 3,000 people that SpringOwl believes the company should be employing, based on its steadily declining revenue.“We would like to see a higher stock price, and we think Marissa and her current management team have become a hindrance to that,” said Eric Jackson, SpringOwl’s managing director. He declined to disclose the size of SpringOwl’s Yahoo investment.Yahoo’s revenue has been shrinking through most of Mayer’s reign, even though she has spent more than $3 billion buying more than 40 companies, while bringing in new talent and developing mobile applications and other services designed to attract more traffic and advertisers.The decline has persisted while advertisers have been steadily increasing their digital marketing efforts. Most of that money has been flowing to Google and Facebook — two companies once far smaller than the now 20-year-old Yahoo Inc.Yahoo’s fourth-quarter report provided fresh evidence of the company’s deterioration. After subtracting ad commissions, revenue plunged 15 per cent to $1 billion compared with the previous year — the biggest drop since Mayer became CEO in July 2012. Things continue to look bleak, as Yahoo forecast a net revenue decline of 12 to 17 per cent this year.The Sunnyvale, California, company reported a fourth-quarter loss of $4.4 billion, reflecting the eroding value of its services. The amount included a $1.2 billion hit for acquisitions made under Mayer, including a $230 million decrease in the value of blogging service Tumblr, which the company bought for $1.1 billion in 2013. read more

Wrestling An inside look at competing unattached as an Ohio State wrestler

Ohio State wrestler sophomore Brendan Fitzgerald has competed unattached many times during his collegiate career. Courtesy of Sam JanickiOn most weekends, a large part of the Ohio State wrestling roster can be found competing on their own, with no coaches, not wearing Buckeye singlets in a small gym in front of minimal crowds. These wrestlers are competing unattached in open tournaments. NCAA wrestling allows 16 dates of competition for Division I teams. Any event that has more than six competitors on a team counts as a full event. As a result, Ohio State pays for six or fewer nonstarters to compete at open events nearly every weekend. The wrestlers do not wear Ohio State-affiliated clothing and coaches rarely attend since it is not an official team event. The true value of unattached events for a wrestling team might come from the athletes that attend but do not have their expenses paid for by the university. Wrestlers in their redshirt year compete in opens as well, but must pay their own way. They find a way to compete while redshirting, unlike a football redshirt who must watch from the sidelines. “There’s a formula that made these guys Ohio State recruitable, and part of that formula is you have to compete,” head coach Tom Ryan said. “We don’t make it mandatory but I think winners and guys that want to eventually be starters and have a really successful redshirt year just have to compete.”OSU redshirt freshman Kevin Snyder controls the hands of Cleveland Statesophomore Collin Kelly in a match on November 21, 2017 in Columbus, OH. Credit: Colin Barringer | For The LanternRyan encourages his unattached wrestlers to attend any competition that takes place within a five-hour drive from Columbus. Ohio State wrestlers have competed in events like the Michigan State Open, the Eastern Michigan Open and the Purple Raider Open in Alliance, Ohio. Competing unattached is a right of passage in the Buckeye wrestling room. “More often than not, you need a year in a college room to be hardened and it’s like driving on the interstate versus driving on the autobahn,” Ryan said. “High school wrestling is the interstate or a residential neighborhood and college wrestling is the autobahn.”While attending open meets, unattached wrestlers often carpool to the events and stay in hotel rooms together. They eat together and coach each other from the corner while wrestling. Redshirt freshman heavyweight Gary Traub has competed at multiple opens in his first two seasons, and has found that his best friendships on the team were forged on those trips. “When I first got here, I didn’t know anybody,” Traub said. “So my first open, I’m like, ‘I want these guys to know that I belong here.’ I’m trying to do all this fancy stuff and these fancy moves and stuff like that just to show them that I belong because at first I really didn’t think I did.” Open events bring much-needed experience to Ohio State wrestlers, but can pose a challenge for those who must pay their own way. Ryan estimates the cost of competing unattached for a season at around $900, accounting for food, travel and entrance expenses. “That was tough,” Traub said. “I wanted to go to as many as I could, but there were a lot of times where [I said], ‘Damn, if I go I have to pay $40 for the entrance fee, I have to buy my own gas up there, I have to buy my own hotel.’ The cost of it was a big deterrent for a lot of the guys to go.”The environments of open meets are less formal, which can allow for a looser attitude for competitors. However, less formality often comes with less regulation. An entrance fee is the only requirement to compete at most meets. As a result, the Ohio State wrestlers have seen some interesting things. Redshirt freshman heavyweight Kevin Snyder saw a wrestler he estimated to be in his late 20s earlier this month. Snyder also added he’s seen a lot of heavyweights pushing the 285-pound limit. Sophomore Brendan Fitzgerald watched a wrestler lose a match, then slam his head on the ground.“I feel like I wouldn’t see that at one of our meets or at a tournament that we’d go to,” he said. “I don’t think a coach would allow that.”Traub recalled a weekend where a couple of his friends from high school found out that he would be competing in an open. “They wanted to wrestle me so they literally just signed up for it and wrestled unattached, which was pretty funny,” Traub said. “That’s probably the weirdest thing I’ve seen, but it was a lot of fun.”The stories that come from the unattached trips seem to be more memorable for the Buckeye wrestlers than the matches themselves. Snyder reflected fondly on packing into redshirt junior Anthony DiCarlo’s dad’s RV and traveling to meets. Traub remembers saving money by staying at redshirt freshman Clay Ragon’s house when entering meets up north. For every high-profile Ohio State wrestling match at a Big Ten tournament or at the NCAA championships, there is an open match or a story from the journey to compete unattached on the other side of the spectrum. This is the side of collegiate wrestling that isn’t seen on the surface. “I can see it makes sense from an outsider’s perspective,” Ryan said. “What do you mean he’s wrestling here and he’s not in an Ohio State singlet? It’s a little different, but in the wrestling world for recruits, prospects coming in, it’s the norm.” read more

Ausmelt wins first lead smelter contract in China

first_imgAusmelt has won its first lead smelter contract in China. The company will supply a lead smelter with a capacity to produce 100,000 t/y of lead to Yunnan Tin Company Ltd (YTCL) in China’s Yunnan province. Under the contract, Ausmelt will provide lead smelting technology, design engineering services, commissioning services and equipment.This is the second smelting contract Ausmelt has signed with YTCL. The first, in 1999, was for a tin smelter to process 50,000 t of tin concentrate a year. Ausmelt and YTCL established an excellent working relationship and worked closely together to start up the tin plant in record time. This plant has been operating successfully since 2002 and has achieved throughput rates well in excess of its design capacity.In 2005, YTCL won China’s prestigious National Scientific and Development Award for the tin project. YTCL Vice General Manager, Lan Xu, said at the contract signing that, after extensive study, YTCL had concluded that Ausmelt technology provides a unique combination of technical, environmental and economic advantages which, together, make it the best available solution for lead smelting. Lan said that the new lead project is a major part of YTCL’s plan to grow their business substantially over the next few years.Ausmelt Managing Director, Paul Abbott today congratulated YTCL on its expansion into lead production and said that Ausmelt’s top submerged lance technology was well-positioned to play a significant role in the modernization of China’s lead industry. He said the Chinese Government had recently announced new regulations that would require all new lead smelters to have a minimum production capacity of 100,000 t/y.This is the eighth TSL smelting project Ausmelt has won in China and is the fourth Chinese project the company has won this calendar year. The company recently won its second contract in Russia, to provide basic engineering design and technology licensing to a major metallurgical company in the CIS. Abbott said Ausmelt had won a record five contracts in 2005-06 and had already won two new projects since balance date.last_img read more

Drilling foes see NPRA bids request redo on ANWR estimate

first_imgEnvironmentalists staged a protest in front of the U.S. Senate in October. Photo: Liz RuskinThree Congress members opposed to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge are challenging the revenue projections for that endeavor, and they have fresh evidence on their side.Listen nowThe Democratic members wrote a letter asking the Congressional Budget Office to re-evaluate the estimate that lease sales in the refuge could raise $2.2 billion over 10 years, split evenly between the federal treasury and the state of Alaska.The letter, from top Democrats on the House Resources Committee, points to the annual lease sale held this week for the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, to the west of Prudhoe Bay. More than 10 million acres were offered but bids totaled just over a million dollars.The letter says at that rate, the coastal plain of the refuge would raise only $180,000.The NPR-A lease sale was lackluster compared to last year’s. Only seven tracts drew bids.One longtime observer of Alaska’s petroleum industry says companies may have concluded most of the promising tracts in the reserve are either already leased or currently off-limits.The Arctic Refuge sits to the east of Prudhoe Bay. A sweeping tax bill pending in Congress could open the refuge to its first lease sale.The letter-writers are Reps. Raul Grijalva of Arizona, and Californians Jared Huffman and Alan Lowenthal.They did not mention this week’s state lease sale on the North Slope.

Perfectly Preserved Roman Fresco of Narcissus Discovered in Pompeii

first_imgA stunning fresco depicting the ancient Greek myth of Narcissus has been uncovered in a surprising new discovery at Pompeii, according to The Guardian. The fresco is thought to have been painted in the years immediately preceding the destruction of the city in the 1st century AD, and offers new insights into elite Roman culture. The Roman city of Pompeii is a treasure trove for archaeologists and historians of the ancient world. The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD may have engulfed Pompeii and wreaked destruction on the local population, but it also left a snapshot of the city frozen in time. For scholars, Pompeii is a casket of perfectly preserved wonders, providing unique insights into life in the 1st century Roman city.Villa of the Mysteries in Pompeii seen from above. Photo by ElfQrin CC BY-SA 4.0Although archaeologists have been excavating in Pompeii for centuries, new discoveries are still being made at the site. According to The Guardian, the Narcissus fresco was uncovered in the atrium of a house in Pompeii, the site of a number of other important, recent discoveries.In November 2018, a small, brightly colored fresco depicting the Greek myth of Leda and the Swan was revealed after heavy rains caused some parts of the ruins to collapse, thereby opening up access to hitherto unexplored areas of the site.Roman fresco with banquet scene (detail) from the Casa dei Casti Amanti in PompeiiHowever, the unearthing of more frescoes at the same site has caused considerable excitement among archaeologists and historians. According to The Guardian, the Narcissus fresco is by far the largest and most impressive image discovered in the house to date.In Greek mythology, Narcissus was the son of the river god Cephissus and the nymph Liriope. He was a beautiful, disdainful youth who spurned the advances of the many women who sought his affections.Narcissus by Caravaggio depicts Narcissus gazing at his own reflectionHis story is related in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, which describes how Narcissus was followed by a lovesick nymph named Echo. When Narcissus became aware of her presence, he called out to her, but she was doomed only to repeat his cries.When she finally revealed herself, Narcissus rejected her cruelly, and she ended her life in grief and heartbreak, literally fading to an echo of her former self.Related Video: The frozen in time citizens of PompeiiAccording to Ovid, the goddess Nemesis decided to punish Narcissus for his cruel treatment of Echo, and lured him to a pond where he caught sight of his reflection. Struck by his own beauty, he immediately fell in love and remained transfixed by the image in the pool.Nemesis, goddess of retributionHowever, struck by the realization that his love was futile, he fell into deep despair, and according to some versions of the tale, committed suicide. Other versions report that he was consumed by the fire of his own passion and transformed into a gold and white flower, known today as narcissus, or more commonly, the daffodil.According to The New York Times, the fresco discovered in Pompeii depicts the youthful Narcissus next to a pond, apparently transfixed by his own reflection. He is accompanied by a dog, which is trying in vain to pull him from his own reflection, and a winged figure, possibly the Greek of love, Eros.Narcissus was a popular choice among elite Romans seeking to decorate their homes with rich, beautiful frescoes. In the recently excavated house at Pompeii, the Narcissus fresco sits alongside a number of other images depicting scenes from Greek mythology.So far, archaeologists have uncovered pictures of satyrs, cupids and maenads, which seem to point to a Dionysian theme of revelry.Narcissus gazes at the spring. From a 14th century copy of Roman de la RoseIndeed, Massimo Osanna, Director General of the site at Pompeii, commented that these rich decorations were “pervaded by the theme of the joy of living, of beauty and of vanity”, according to the New York Times.Other artifacts found at the site, including containers for wine and consumable goods, suggest that this was a home designed for entertaining, and probably belonged to a wealthy patron.Garum amphora from Pompeii. Photo by Claus Ableiter CC BY-SA 3.0These latest discoveries have caused the site directors to change their plans for the house. They now plan to continue the excavations and open part of the site to the public, allowing them to admire these beautiful paintings in situ.Read another story from us: The Mysteries and Meanings Behind 6 Fascinating SculpturesThe frescoes are also an important reminder that, despite long years of exploration and excavation at Pompeii, this rich archaeological site still holds many secrets yet to be revealed.last_img read more

Virgin Atlantic accuses Jet Airways of stealing seat design

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: W.X Virgin Atlantic Seat Jet Airways Seatcenter_img Virgin Atlantic is reportedly pursuing Jet Airways in both India and the United Kingdom for the infringement of its patented Upper Class seats in a configuration it calls “herringbone”.Virgin Atlantic last year pursued design firm Contour, with whom it had developed the seats, for selling the design to rival airlines; and now it appears that it will also pursue one of the airlines – namely Jet Airways, India’s LiveMint reports.Virgin Atlantic says their innovative Upper Class seats, which face diagonally instead of towards the front, have now been sold onwards to the likes of British Airways, Delta Air Lines and Cathay Pacific.“We are currently pursuing Jet in the UK courts for jointly developing a seat with manufacturer Contour, which infringes Virgin Atlantic’s patent,” said a spokesperson for Virgin Atlantic to LiveMint.Developed and launched in 2007, Jet Airways has argued that the design has since been in the public domain for so long it no longer falls under the patent.last_img read more

Amartya Sen has been at the receiving end of the ire of the Bharatiya Janata Party a lot lately After being removed from the chancellor of the Nalanda University Sen had to recently face scathing remarks from Dilip Ghosh president of the party’s West Bengal unit who called Sen a "spineless" character Lashing out at Sen one of Bengal’s two living Nobel laureates (the other being Dr Muhammad Yunus) Ghosh said “No one in Bengal understands him (Sen) He himself doesn’t understand what he is He is in extreme pain because he was removed as the chancellor of Nalanda University Such people are spineless characterless and they can be purchased or sold” The statement naturally received condemnation from all over West Bengal A file image of Amartya Sen AFP When Sen was asked for his response on the matter he said "I have nothing to say Whatever he has felt is right He definitely has the right to say so . in that regard there is no reason for me to object . we should discuss all issues If he feels this is also a matter for discussion then he should do it" But when most were expecting an apology Ghosh reiterated his stand saying: "I stand by whatever I have said . no regrets" But that was not all though BJP leader Chandra Kumar Bose followed Ghosh’ cheap attack with a similar diatribe stating that Sen "called for it” This writer will not argue as to how great or not-so-great Sen is but try to analyse what this attack means Why now Sen has been in the crosshairs of the Narendra Modi government for some time now He was removed from the position (by the Union Government) of the Chancellor of the Nalanda University a project that he was instrumental in conceiving and roping in various international stakeholders The project is now headed by a BJP insider appointee It is widely understood that the international project that fired the idea of the Nalanda University is doomed after the Sen and his team were shown the door It did not help that Sen remains one among millions of people who cannot forget the association between the Gujarat riots of 2002 and Modi and as a thinker Sen has made clear what he makes of the ascendency of Modi Sen is an economist and a public intellectual and has also expressed his views on demonetisation views that would not please the Modi government So what do these recent attacks on Sen signify Are we to believe that if any thinker or intellectual or for that matter any person expressed views that are contrary to that of the government or are critical of policies of the Union government the official policy of the government would be to let loose the attack dogs in a coordinated fashion so as to silent such views Where did this sick culture of politics come from This is certainly not the political culture of Bengal where various strains of politics existed along with scathing mutual critic that also guarantees a celebrated role for public intellectuals opinionating in such matters during crucial times Ghosh may belong to Bengal but his political training ideology and conduct are completely alien to the ethos of Bengal By criticising Sen a Bengali icon Ghosh has become Delhi’s Bengali hit-man in Bengal And that Ghosh considers pleasing his masters in Delhi more important than being loyal to the ethos and culture of Bengal shows there’s fundamentally wrong with the BJP in West Bengal The Bengaliness of the BJP in Bengal in incidental whereas it’s BJP-ness is fundamental And this seriously limits its appeal in West Bengal where it is widely conceived to be a Hindi-belt party controlled by outsiders Among the top five parties of West Bengal BJP has the highest number of non-Bengali Hindi-speaking senior organisational functionaries Due to its basic ideology it is a reality that BJP in West Bengal can neither change nor flaunt very strongly Thus having being cut out of the mainstream Bengali political narrative (except on issues of communal divisiveness) Ghosh has decided to troll his way in Sen has never said anything pertaining to Ghosh It was Ghosh who said it It is clear who wants to score points out of reflected glory The adage that all publicity is good publicity still holds true for the BJP which at any rate is still a marginal political player in most parts of West Bengal In fact the BJPs vote percentage in the 2016 Assembly Election was a meagre 107 percent So if people are attending to BJP’s message in West Bengal it’s because the party chief has taken the controversy generation route to publicity And this is not completely ineffective as a strategy This is how it goes On various issues a broad political consensus exists in any domain including in West Bengal In that domain if a new political interloper (such as the BJP) wants to carve out an independent space it has to do either voice that consensus forcefully and project itself as the best representative or practice an iconoclastic posturing and make sure press cameras are on while it does that The BJP’s West Bengal branch has taken the latter route While it makes statements that are considered quite far out in West Bengal’s political landscape the BJP seeks to polarise people along its axis Since the party starts from a low base it does not have much to lose Established parties with larger support bases cannot afford such irresponsible acts Neither are they that much removed from the civil and political compact that exists in West Bengal The new player is trying to push the envelope and by generating controversy around the issue it wants to become a pole in the public narrative and eventually a decider That is where all of this stems from Sen is an excuse for the most recent foray into this narrative domination game By introducing a far out axis the BJP hopes to polarise with every such intervention and add new converts to it given the favourable media focus it received due to it being in power in New Delhi The media attention that the BJP gets in West Bengal is disproportionate to both its vote percentage in West Bengal (106 percent) or the number of MLAs in the West Bengal assembly (6 out of 294) Ghosh has said that he does not understand Sen’s work That is not a crime The solution to that is to try harder to understand or to move on To vilify an author or a thinker because one is admittedly not being able to understand his/her work highlights and then to held the author responsible for that shows Ghosh’s limited intellectual ability It is not only a ridiculous position; it is also a position that is against discussion dialogue learning and self-improvement Such a position is against the ethos of Bengal which stresses exactly those things Ghosh has not been able to understand Sen whose most celebrated work is on the causes of Bengal Famine of 1943 One can critique Sen’s formulation about the causes of the great Bengal famine of 1943 but what is incontestable are some facts which Ghosh might like to know Syama Prasad Mookerjee the ideological father of the BJP had actually demanded caste-based cooks in famine relief stations to prevent caste pollution at a time when millions were actually dying of hunger Some major financial backers of the Hindu Mahasabha were those business houses of Kolkata whose criminal activities of rice cotton and commodity hoarding were among the causes that resulted in the death of millions of Bengalis The prosperity of these business houses was built over the dead bodies of starving Bengalis If Bengali lives matter to Ghosh I recommend that he reads Dr Janam Mukherjee’s book Hungry Bengal Its content will educate him that many of Ghosh’s present heroes will figure in the list of those of did nothing for Bengal and betrayed her in the direst hour And that is way before we come to
