Minister Narendra Modi and United States president Donald Trump has come off much better than expected India had kept expectations low knowing the unpredictable nature of the new US leader But the atmospherics and the messaging has been just right for New Delhi and will be celebrated by the BJP as another feather in Modi’ s cap A major takeaway is the apparent personal chemistry between Trump and Modi which will set the note and tenor of future ties For Trump who is facing major problems on the domestic front the Modi visit was an opportunity to change the relentless negative narrative in the American press at least for a day For his supporters Trump has brandished the prospect for more jobs and opened up the Indian market to US companies File image of Prime Minister Narendra Narendra Modi and US president Donald Trump AP His mention of GST and tax reforms at the press conference was in keeping with more business for America For India Trump’s domestic situation is of little interest Modi has got what he wanted from Trump when it comes to Pakistan and China seen by his constituency back home as India’s enemies Inviting Ivanka Trump to India to lead the US delegation to a global entrepreneurship summit was a good way to create the right mood – as all world leaders are aware of the importance of family for the President Expectedly terrorism was a major issue on the table What the US delivered was exactly what India had wanted By designating Syed Salahuddin leader of Hizbul Mujahideen in Jammu and Kashmir as a global terrorist the Trump administration gave a clear message to Pakistan But on the ground this will have little visible effect as the Hizbul leader operates mainly from Pakistan and is protected by itsall-powerful military establishment The joint statement issued at the end of their meeting also reflects India’s long-term concerns about terrorism emanating from Pakistan The fact that India-specific terror groups were named served as a major plus point The statement said that the two countries are: "Committed to strengthening cooperation against terrorist threats from groups including Al-Qaeda Islamic State Jaish-e-Mohammad Lashkar-e-Taiba D-Company and their affiliates" "The leaders called on Pakistan to ensure that its territory is not used to launch terrorist attacks on other countries They further called on Pakistan to expeditiously bring to justice the perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai Pathankot and other cross-border terrorist attacks perpetrated by Pakistan-based groups" the statement said reflecting India’s language Another important element to emerge is the United States’ help to Indian intelligence Here one cannot help but recall how US citizen David Headley was able to enter India and provide key inputs ahead of the Mumbai terror attacks The US could have easily tipped off Indiabut failed to do so Now the two countries have "further resolved to strengthen information exchange on plans movements and linkages of terrorist groups and their leaders as well as on raising and moving of funds by terrorist groups" Pakistan’s close friend China was also on the agenda though not named in the call by India and US in upholding the freedom of navigation in the India-Pacific region The reference was obvious This is however not new When Barak Obama visited in 2015 the two countries had for the first time spoken out strongly on the South China Sea It was a reiteration of these principles signalling that China’s aggressive pursuit of its claims to exclusive privileges in the South China Sea against those of other East Asian countries will not be entertained India and the US once again asked: "all nations to resolve territorial and maritime disputes peacefully and in accordance with international law" Again there is a significant message to China on its pet One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative The language on sovereignty used in the joint statement is again something India had given as a reason for not attending the mega meet organised by China recently The statement spoke of bolstering regional economic connectivity which China said was the motive behind its OBOR plans In an indirect reference to this India and America said that they were all for bolstering regional connectivity through "the transparent development of infrastructure and the use of responsible debt financing practices while ensuring respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity the rule of law and the environment" While New Delhi is against China’s pet project on grounds that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir a territory which India see’s as its own But the US and many European nations regard China’s effort to revive the old maritime and land trade routes as an effort to bolster its growing big power status By agreeing to sell India the Sea Guardian unmanned aerial systems unmanned drones in layman’s language the US is bolstering the Indian Navy’s surveillance capacity in the Indian Ocean region This deal is worth around two billion However the defence deal on the production of F-16 fighter jets in India which will help to create jobs may not be what the doctor ordered on the transfer of technology to India These planes once highly rated and which the Pakistan air force possesses have now been overtaken by much more advanced fighters The GST is regarded as a game changer for India as it will do away with much of the red tape for foreigners bewildered by India’s plethora of rules and regulations However it will take a while for GST to make a difference The first few months will expectedly be tough but in the long run this will certainly help businesses All this will take time but for now Modi has been able to convince top CEOs of American companies that the GST will open up a unified market for 13 billion people Much will depend on how all this pans out but for now it is a win-win situation for Modi

over Bayern as Dortmund coach and ended their opponents’ unbeaten run this season said his plan of playing a quick attacking game with two strikers and Mario Goetze behind them paid off This tactic had Bayern’s central defenders Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels pinned deep with fullbacks David Alaba and Philipp Back also kept busy Bayern in second place now and three points ahead of Dortmund improved after the interval but despite a long period of dominance they could not break past a solid Dortmund backline “We suffered a lot in this game but that was clear even before it started” said Tuchel who fielded forwards Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Adrian Ramos “But if you are up against Bayern in the ring you cannot expect to get away without a black eye The important thing is to keep standing” he said Dortmund gave Bayern no chance in the first 25 minutes as they pressed high attacked early and succeeded in wresting possession from the visitors Aubameyang gave them an 11th minute lead and they hung on to that until the end with Bayern upping the pressure in the second half and hitting the woodwork through Xabi Alonso “The first half was extremely intense The idea today was to

of the region Matthi which explores the ties that bind individuals into communities won the Kerala Sangeetha Nataka Akademi award last year The Best Actor runner-up went to the play’s unconventional actor a lanky village mason with a disarming grin Renji Kankol was cast as fish-seller Rafeeq because director Jino Joseph kept remembering his face mannerisms and gestures while writing the play “When the director told me about the role I found that the age and character of Rafeeq was the same as mine” says Kankol 27 Joseph would find out later that Kankol who dropped out of school after class X used to carry matthi baskets on his head to distribute to shops in his village “I earned Rs 60 a day My body was full of the smell Others will not like this smell but we love it” says Kankol who won Best Actor at the prestigious Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards (META) in 2015 Matthi was also presented at Bharat Rang Mahotsav (BRM) National School of Drama’s (NSD) annual festival earlier this week The play is a snapshot of rural life in which villagers have simple concerns and small jobs Every rite of passage from childhood pranks to teenage crushes from acting in a local play to participating in a political meeting is flavoured by fish Tasty healthy and cheap matthi is the food of the masses It is cooked by a girl Rafeeq falls in love with and by his sister Kunjami for public gatherings “The period between the ’60s and ’90s marked a big cultural transition in Kerala Youngsters and entire families began to migrate out of villages for studies or work and their place was taken by labourers from Bengal and North India” says Joseph The stink of fish from the stage is replaced by the dust of cement mixers Rafeeq finds that the big fish have swallowed up the small matthi Kankol has spent all his life in the Left bastion of Koothuparamba a town that was once a hub of art and cultural activities and political revolutions but is now better known for a 1994 incident of police brutality the Koothuparamba Firing The son of a mechanic he would participate in folk plays and grew up making props and doing odd jobs around the stage The role of Rafeeq came a month after his father died and Kankol was struggling to earn a livelihood for his mother and his sister “One day you will be known by the name of Matthi Rafeeq” Joseph promised the mason “He is not an actor and that is the positive thing His sorrow becomes the sorrow of the audience his pleasure becomes their pleasure” says Joseph “Rafeeq is not a leader or a boss but he has his own politics He never sells big fish He always stands on the side of the marginalised people He gives up only when he realises that the local sardines are being exported and their place was being taken up by imported fish kept in cold storage” says Kankol and adds that he is “pro-communist” The actor says he was enthusiastic about his first lead role but did not know how to perform The cast attended a camp in tents they put up and cut out the outside world for 45 days to develop the play “All the people came together had their food together cooked together ate together and slept together This togetherness made the play We started the day by cooking matthi and slowly the play began to take shape” says Kankol In his small house Kankol has made a wooden shelf to display the awards appreciations and mementoes coming his way from cultural organisations and events such as International Theatre Festival of Kerala Matthi is reportedly causing a social revolution in Kerala by bringing back the culture of local clubs where budding artistes can express themselves through theatre This is important in the context of the nature of the district – a major industry in Kannur is bomb-making and no day goes by without reports of a fatal explosion He adds “We cannot say Matthi has made big revolutions and all the social and political problems are solved Matthi is a celebration of nostalgia it makes people realise what we miss today The play is a small reminder of that” He still works as a mason making relief works on cement “We cannot compare our passion with money Theatre gives pleasure it helps us to forget our troubles and reinforces our faith” he says Among theatre-goers however he is famous The morning after Matthi was staged at BRM a campus theatre group pointed out Kankol as he wandered

debate among students and student groups The idea of what a union is has also undergone a sea change The hegemony of the Left in JNU is based more on rhetoric and social pressure than ideology The campus is mostly liberal but lacking a liberal party And with the ABVP far from being one the communist groups are the sole option for liberal students As compared to the two-party Left Unity (AISA [All India Students Association] and SFI [Students Federation of India]) in which DSF (Democratic Students Federation) came a strong second at the Joint Secretary spot last year the latter has been included in the Left Unity panel this year (AISA SFI DSF) Representational image Reuters The largest party of the three AISA had only agreed to Left Unity last year once the Anmol Ratan rape case damaged its reputation extremely close to election time In short the Left Unity project implies a defence mechanism by AISA which can no longer win every seat with its own panel and to fudge criticism on the issue of gender offered to share power with other left parties Fear of an ABVP victory was not the occasion that led to Left Unity Most importantly none of the Left parties were concerned with ABVP victory in the JNUSU elections since Narendra Modi became the prime minister of India – in 2013 2014 and 2015 JNUSU elections the main issues were still campus based (with the exception of Kanhaiya Kumar) A JNUSU presidential candidate needs at least one of two qualities to win on their own terms (and outside a simple partisan vote) – either they need to be articulate and charismatic or they need to be well-known faces that have been known to be hard workers on student issues Last year’s winner and AISA candidate Mohit Pandey was neither of the two The clear favourite for the presidential post in the run up to the final nominations was Geeta Kumari from AISA representing the United Left panel – the most qualified candidates on paper (whether from AISA or any other party in ages) She is a twice-elected councillor from two different schools (once from the School of Languages and once from the School of Social Sciences) and served in the GSCASH for nearly three years – and has a support base beyond her party Her frontrunner status was confirmed when the nominations were finalised by the fact that once Geeta was nominated every other party fielded a female presidential candidate to cut into her potential vote share – Aparajitha Raja from AISF Nidhi Tripathi from ABVP Shabana Ali from BAPSA and Vrinshnika Singh from NSUI It would be interesting to see how the new dynamics play out in this scenario The presidential debate is another factor that could shake up the debatethough over the years hooting sectarian disruption and mudslinging by rival camps have led to
