fellow Kashmiri student from his hometown says that it was the right decision for him to leave Kupwara or else he would never have got the exposure that he is getting here “I have had so many new experiences here My college is providing me new opportunities which enhance my communication skills” he says Bashir says that the initial months for him were tough but “as time passed” the city has become a home “I came from a place which is different from this city I faced a lot of problems initially in terms of food and other things” he says “But then I got used to the problems and now those are not problems anymore” Bashir arrived at the city despite reports that Kashmiri students were being harassed or that the college administration cancels the admission because the HRD Ministry does not remit fees to the college as it is supposed to for the students enrolled under the Prime Minister’s Special Scholarship Scheme But he has had no bad experience so far “I have never faced any

Updated: October 16 2016 12:50 pm Hema Malini is celebrating her 68th birthday today Top News Hema Malini has never been a darling of the feminists and it’s unlikely she will ever be The reason you could argue is India’s perception of her as a staid conventional woman But Gulzar makes a strong contrarian argument in the foreword of Hema Malini’s authorised biography published in 2007 The media the poet-filmmaker writes “projects her as a traditional woman but her choices in life prove that she is more liberal than most of the slogan-shouting feminists we know about” Coming from the wise Gulzar who following in the traditions of Bimal Roy and Hrishikesh Mukherjee tried to apply the parallel cinema sensibility on the commercially popular face of Hema Malini in films like Khushboo Kinara and Meera it compels you to think about Hema’s life and career from a fresh perspective While Gulzar is of course referring to her courageous personal life let’s look at how the Dream Girl has also been breaking new grounds on screen Like most Tamil girls of her generation Hema learnt to dance from a tender age and took an instant liking to it In fact in Bhawana Somaaya’s authorised biography the author admits that when Hema – who has led more or less a private life and keeps the press at bay with her cold and indifferent attitude – first approached her to write a book on her it was to chronicle her “sojourn as a dancer” Like most Tamil girls of her generation Hema learnt to dance from a tender age and took an instant liking to it Somaaya suggests that dance became the most important identity of the actress’ life Instead of following in her father’s secure domain of government service and middle-class academic fulfilment Hema opted for the life that her artistically-minded mother would have chosen if she had the privilege of choice The great dancer and fellow Tamilian Vyjayanthimala may have been an influence on the young Hema According to Somaaya’s biography of the star Hema Malini and family visited Vyjayanthimala’s concerts and discussed her performances later at home In a twist of fate Hema’s Bollywood career mirrors Vyjayanthimala’s She started acting at a young age and in no time was dancing her way into Bollywood She made her debut in the late 1960s Those were the heydeys of Sadhana Mala Sinha Waheeda Rehman Mumtaz Saira Banu and Vyjayanthimala Hema broke the mould of a Hindi film heroine and made acting look like fun even though she operated within the conventions of Hindi cinema She brought a new energy into acting the way Shammi Kapoor did Hema Malini made for a very successful team with Dharmendra and did dozens of films with Rajesh Khanna Sanjeev Kumar and Jeetendra Blessed with a vast range she excelled in dramatic scenes and was as much at home in comedies It seems dancing and the emotions involved in the art form informed her acting which was more instinctive than method-driven It was rare for Hindi film heroines of the time to be given comic parts – those were reserved for full-time comedians But Hema changed that with brilliant comic portrayals in Sholay and Seeta Aur Geeta paving the way for someone like Sridevi Music has been a vital part of Hema’s life as a child and the fact that she’s seen as a highly successful actress who has maximum hit songs to her credit must have come as a beautiful validation of childhood motifs Hema also dabbled in the non-mainstream cinema with offbeat films by Gulzar and KBalachander and in adaptations of works by literary figures like Rajinder Singh Bedi She made for a very successful team with Dharmendra and did dozens of films with Rajesh Khanna Sanjeev Kumar and Jeetendra Both Sanjeev and Jeetendra were vying for her attention at one point in time only to be rebuffed by her Already she was seriously in love with Garam Dharam Much to the rude shock of her mother she opted for an uncommon marriage with a much-married Dharmendra She’s also one of the few actresses to get into politics and survive its murky Machiavellian twists and turns There are some who think her political stint and contribution to public life pales in comparison to her film career But the jury’s still out on that There’s no doubt that Hema’s classic beauty has often come in the way of her real achievements There’s no doubt that Hema’s classic beauty has often come in the way of her real achievements Her flawless good-looks once inspired the irrepressible Lalu Prasad Yadav to declare (in what was clearly a sexist line) “I’ll make the roads of Bihar as smooth as her cheeks” But don’t make the mistake of thinking that she has survived so long on her beauty alone She’s a strong and independent woman who embraced some stereotypes and broke some but always stood by her choices Feminists may not think of her as one of her own kind because she was never the bra-burning type But if you don’t call Hema Malini a feminist I don’t know anyone else who can qualify for being called one PS: (Incidentally she never shed clothes on screen even in sexually-charged seductive scenes But then are you a feminist only if you dare to bare) (Shaikh

Devendra Fadnavis on Monday announced setting up of a war room in every district across the drought-hit region to tackle emergency situations 24×7 While providing toll-free helpline round the clock to facilitate immediate relief to citizens Fadnavis ordered the district collectors to crack the whip on individuals/groups lifting water from villages and illegally selling it to drought-hit families Fadnavis held a marathon meeting with 21 district collectors on Monday morning through video conference to set a roadmap for the next three months complete with provision of water supply and fodder The chief minister also asked every district collector to make a weekly plan and closely monitor results and requirements and assured support from the headquarters in Mumbai At the end of March the government’s biggest concern relates to water levels plunging to almost dead stock in most big dams There are 25000 villages reeling under drought out of the total 40000 in Maharashtra Share This

minimise water transportation distance According to Fadnavis “The war rooms in every district will help us rise to any challenge that confronts the administration and reach out to people in the vicinity” While acknowledging that government is set to provide all necessary help he said “I have asked district collectors to take strict action against those found selling water illegally” Fadnavis said “In these hard times when people and farmers are reeling under water scarcity commercialisation and exploitation of resources whether water fodder or foodgrains will not be tolerated” The local

NewsLahore Pakistan: Veteran Pakistan batsman Younis Khan is facing disciplinary action for lashing out when it became clear he was to be dropped for next month’s one-day series in Zimbabwe The 37-year-old hit out at selectors a day before the squad was announced last week — without his name included "If I am not selected the one-day team will not be able to stand up" Younis said in a television interview File picture of Younis Khan Getty The head of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Shaharyar Khan said the batsman who has averaged a dismal 1832 in 29 one-day matches in the last three years was clearly frustrated "I respect him a lot and we will sit with him and discuss it with him but we will consider taking action" PCB chairman Khan said "There are two actions extreme or moderate but we have to find a position in between Something should be done" It is the third series in a row for which the selectors have overlooked Khan who scored just 43 runs in three World Cup matches in Australia and New Zealand earlier this year But he has been in fine Test form rolling back the years to hit a sublime 171 not out as Pakistan chased an improbable 377 to beat Sri Lanka in Pallekele in July He was further piqued over an event on Saturday to launch the logo for the new Twenty Pakistan Super League "I was not invited and that made it easy for me to decide whether to play the PSL or not" he retorted on Saturday night But the PCB’s Khan said all players including Younis were invited "If we had not invited Younis and other greats I would have been apologising" said Khan "Younis saying he was not invited is factually not correct" AFP By the end of it Fernando Santos was battling tears His stern visage could no longer maintain its look The joy of an unlikely win had overpowered him Santos was underwhelmed The narrowest of wins for his team; the widest of smiles for his countrymen and women It was appropriate that Santos had saved his most expressive reaction for the last He is known to be a taskmaster and throughout the tournament he ensuredthat he was able to get the best out of his side By the end of the final 21 out of the 23 squad members had spent at least a minute on the pitch The only ones to miss out were the reserve goalkeepers Portugal head coach Fernando Santos is lifted up by his players after winning Euro 2016 Reuters Some managers may try too many players when they are not certain of what they are achieving Santos on the other hand had a clear idea of what he wanted from his players Every squad member was in France for a reason to implement the manager’s vision Even Cristiano Ronaldo Admittedly Portugal did not always play the best football But how many teams did it meet that were clearly better on the day of the match It is difficult to argue with conviction that Croatia Poland Wales and France outplayed Portugal in any of the knockout encounters Santos recognised the limits of his side and responded in fine fashion Over the past few days there has been a tendency to paint this Portuguese side with the same brush that was used for the 2004 European champion Greece However Santos did not field his side to play a dull style of football It was unadventurous but there were intermittent moments of flair A conservative manager would not have started 18-year-old livewire Renato Sanches in the final three knockout games of Portugal’s campaign There was a distinct balance to the side quarterfinal onwards Adrien Silva’s hardworking ways were complemented by Joao Mario’s silky movement and tough running in the midfield Arguably Santos made his most important interjections in defence after a 3-3 draw with Hungary that demonstrated his back four was not the smoothly functioning unit he demanded Right-back Vierinha whose natural instincts as an attacking wide player undermined the Portuguese backline was ditched for the more stable Cedric Soares Pepe who was arguably Portugal’s player of the tournament also had a new central defensive partner in Jose Fonte The 38-year-old Ricardo Carvalho was conspicuously off-pace and was a liability on the left-hand side Therefore Santos chose to include the Southampton duo of Fonte and Soares to lend firmness to the defence William Carvalho who had come into the side after missing the first match provided another layer of protection Santos of course had already solved the conundrum of how to play Nani and Ronaldo in the absence of a quality striker Both of them played in a partnership as forwards with Nani ensuring he could bring his more illustrious compatriot into play more often than not But even the best of plans can go haywire as Santos realised in the final He responded to Ronaldo’s injury-forced early departure by introducing Ricardo Quaresma who had already made telling contributions from the bench in earlier rounds Later Renato Sanches was replaced by a conventional striker in Eder and the decision paid off in extra time In the absence of Ronaldo Santos realised he needed a more clinical figure at the top than Nani and Quaresma He was not wrong Santos had once said “As a coach I do not have a heart” The 61-year-old’s tendency to make reasoned choices that bear little room for sentiment has marked him out for long Perhaps that is a consequence of his love for machines Santos possesses a degree in electrical and telecommunications engineering and he supplemented his playing career with Estoril by working as the director of technical services at one of the hotels in town The Lisbon-born coach kept that job until 1998 when he quit because FC Porto had come calling for him However the previous decade in coaching had been spent managing both jobs Santos’ love for engineering meant that football could never become the overriding priority In an interview to Portuguese daily Sol Santos revealed how difficult it was for him to leave the job at the hotel "I felt a huge nostalgia for the hotel something I still have Sometimes I just wanted to call and see how they were getting on" A man of simple passions and serious demeanour Santos is known to demand discipline and hard work from each of his players One suspects his humble beginnings inform his world view that things do not come easy; they need to be earned with graft and resoluteness This is one of the reasons why Santos will derive immense pleasure from Portugal’s European Championship win The national side was a reflection of his coaching and life philosophy To see his players give form and meaning to values he has held all his life must give Santos deep satisfaction It is certainly worth crying forsaid Dr T P Lahane, state co-operation minister Subhash Deshmukh said.
