first_imgFt. Lauderdale, Florida – Silversea continues its commitment to the culinary enrichment of its guests with the creation of Flavors of the Mediterranean, a special program showcasing the talents of its corporate chefs, slated for the May 24, Rome-to-Nice sailing of Silver Whisper.This unique voyage is designed to highlight the flavors of the Mediterranean by bringing together, for the first time, Silversea’s corporate culinary stars to tantalize guests with festive dinners and tastings, cooking demonstrations and wine pairings. Guests can attend lectures discussing top trends from terroir to sustainable; join optional tours to renowned wineries and bistros; and visit a local market with a chef to learn how to pick the perfect ingredients for a delicious meal.The cast for this epicurean extravaganza includes:Rudi Scholdis — voyage host and Silversea’s director of culinary development. Belgium-born Scholdis has catered to an impressive list of international celebrities. After cooking his way across Europe, he spent five years working in top London hotels, culminating with the legendary Dorchester. From Alain Ducasse to Charlie Trotter, Scholdis has worked alongside some of the world’s leading chefs. He has catered for Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Charles; and served heads of state from President Bill Clinton and Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, plus an array of Hollywood superstars.David Bilsland — Silversea’s culinary trainer and program leader for L’École des Chefs. Educated in classic French cooking, Bilsland’s career includes several years as a chef/instructor at Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in London. He currently hosts Silversea’s L’École des Chefs, a unique interactive cooking school offered in partnership with Relais & Châteaux.Richard Weichbold — the corporate chef for Silversea. This son of a South African restaurateur moved to London where he became sous chef at the Dorchester. In 2003 he left the urban scene to join Silversea as executive chef aboard Silver Shadow and was promoted to corporate chef in 2009.Alberto Colombo — Silversea’s corporate Italian chef. A native of Turin, graduate of the Culinary Institute in Alessandria and an alumnus of some of Piedmont’s top restaurants, Colombo is steeped in the gastronomic traditions of a region known as Italy’s culinary star. He oversees the authentic Italian regional cuisine for Silversea’s fleet-wide La Terrazza restaurants.Alex Hekimov — the corporate pastry chef for Silversea.

In 2009, he was named “Barcardi Chef of the Year” for his Citrus & Barcardi Indulgence recipe. However, his true addiction is chocolate and today he travels from ship to ship, making sure the croissants are flaky, the dough perfect, and the desserts – a chocoholic’s nirvana.Lyn Farmer — the wine consultant for Silversea. This widely published wine and food writer and senior editor of The Wine News magazine, has been honored with the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Writing on Wine and Spirits. He has judged international wine competitions and led tastings and tours to food and wine regions throughout the world. His A Moment on Wine video series is featured throughout the Silversea fleet.“With Silversea’s Italian heritage, it is not surprising that Mediterranean cuisines are very close to our heart,” said Scholdis. “And with the ports on this itinerary, our chefs can demonstrate their artistry with a bounty of fresh ingredients.”From Rome to the Riviera, guests on this seven-day voyage will explore lands where wines are mellow, glories eternal and breezes fragrant with rosemary and thyme. They will chart their own course to gastronomic discovery with the option to savor the flavors of Sicily at a Relais & Châteaux restaurant along the Amalfi Drive, or by joining a cooking class in St. Tropez, perhaps, or Corsica.The May 24, 2010, Flavors of the Mediterranean cruise (#4013) aboard the all-suite, 382-guest Silver Whisper departs from Rome for Sorrento, Taormina, Palermo, Calvi (Corsica), St. Tropez and Nice.Also available is a free roundtrip air package that includes transfers between airport and pier on the day of embarkation and disembarkation.

Court to rule Tuesday on BoC injunction

first_imgBy George PsyllidesTHE NICOSIA district court will announce its decision on Tuesday regarding an application for an injunction banning the administrator of the now defunct Laiki Bank from voting at a Bank of Cyprus (BoC) AGM, scheduled for September 10.Lawyers acting on behalf of the Archbishopric and five other individuals and companies, asked the court on Friday to issue an injunction excluding the 18 per cent from the vote.The administrator controls 18 per cent of BoC’s shares, which essentially belong to so-called legacy creditors.Kypros Chrysostomides, representing the plaintiffs, suggested the 18 per cent share was illegal, arguing that any decisions taken with their participation would also be illegal.During the lengthy hearing, Chrysostomides, claimed that the participation of Laiki’s administrator would cause irreparable damage to the BoC if the board was elected illegally.BoC lawyer Polys Polyviou argued that an injunction would not only be wrong but also illegal.Polyviou said the court was neither a securities and exchange commission, nor the Central Bank – issuing an interim order was not within its jurisdiction.The bank has yet to post its consolidated accounts.Chrysostomides argues there is a discrepancy of anywhere from €2.3bn to €2.6bn in funds that should have been credited to old shareholders – a glitch that could mean that pre-bail-in shareholders at BoC would see their stake revised from a diluted 1 per cent to nearer 40 per cent.Under the bailing-in of Bank of Cyprus Public Company Limited Decree of 2013 (as amended in July), the nominal value of all ordinary shares was reduced from €1.00 each to ordinary shares of nominal value of €0.01 each.The value of the old shares is the subject of separate applications already filed with the Supreme Court.Old ordinary shareholders and their lawyers are contesting this value, calling it arbitrary.They demand that the Central Bank promptly release the findings of audit firm KPMG, which carried out an independent evaluation of BoC’s assets.The Church of Cyprus used to control a 5.0 per cent stake in the bank and wants to have a say.Under a decision in March to ‘bail-in’ Cyprus’ two largest lenders, BoC and Laiki, losses were imposed on large savers in both banks.Laiki is being resolved, with all of its liabilities and some of its assets folded into BoC.The latter has been recapitalised by seizing large savers’ cash via a deposit-for-equity swap.Old shareholders were all but wiped out, with the bank’s creditors now forming the new shareholder base. You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementBad Digestion Slowing You Down?

"Follow-up from Adrian: I asked about your advice to your younger self") These little steps will go a long way in helping you be remembered This post is in partnership with The Muse This article was originally published on The Muse More from The Muse: Read next: This Unexpected Move Could Strengthen Your Relationships With Important People Listen to the most important stories of the day Contact us at editors@timecomEvery five years the US government releases its dietary guidelines for Americans to help men women and children make the healthiest choices and to provide guidance for national policies and programs regarding nutrition However a new report published in the journal The BMJ criticizes the evidence provided for the upcoming 2015 US Dietary Guidelines arguing that the advice the guidelines use as a foundation is not based in the latest science The guidelines are currently under review by the US government’s health and agricultural agencies But in the report journalist Nina Teicholz author of The Big Fat Surprise writes that the dietary guidelines advisory committee that provided the report meant to inform the new guidelines was reluctant to “consider any evidence that contradicts the last 35 years of nutritional advice” Teicholz says that committees in the past used the Nutrition Evidence Library (NEL) developed by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to standardize the process of collecting and considering studies as the basis for the guidelines However the committee for the 2015 guidelines did not use NEL reviews for 70% of the nutrition topics it covered Teicholz found Instead the committee relied largely on reviews done by outside professional organizations like the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology “Use of external reviews by professional associations is problematic because these groups conduct literature reviews according to different standards and are supported by food and drug companies” the report reads MORE: Why Cholesterol Is No Longer A ‘Nutrient Of Concern’ Teicholz argues that there’s no longer a strong consensus around saturated fat as a diet destroyer The report cites well-executed studies suggesting that lower intake of saturated fat doesn’t necessarily affect heart disease risk Yet these studies were not included in the research and the guidelines committee concluded that evidence linking saturated fat to cardiovascular disease was strong Teicholz also questioned how sufficiently the committee reviewed the efficacy of low-carbohydrate diets The committee concluded it could only find limited evidence on low-carbohydrate diets and health “Many studies of carbohydrate restriction have been published in peer review journals since 2000 nearly all of them were in US populations” Teicholz writes The report adds that the committee put saturated fats and sugar together as a category called “empty calories” Teicholz says nutrition science doesn’t support that classification since saturated fats are consumed largely in foods like eggs meat and dairy which contain lots of vitamins and nutrients necessary for health “Saturated fat is not empty calories Sugar is not empty calories” says Dr Robert Lustig a professor of pediatrics at the University of California San Francisco and co-founder and president of the Institute for Responsible Nutrition “Sugar is not dangerous because it’s calories; sugar is dangerous because it is toxic calories” (Lustig was not involved in the new publication) Lastly the new report underlines the fact that members of the committee have conflicts of interest that are not required to be disclosed One member received research funding from the Tree Nut Council while another received more than $10000 from Lluminari which produces content for companies like General Mills and Pepsi Co MORE: This Is The Worst Kind Of Fat For Your Heart One member of the committee Barbara Millen a professor at Boston University School of Medicine and founder and president of the start-up Millennium Prevention told The BMJ that “the evidence base has never been stronger to guide solutions” and that she stands by their conclusions About saturated fats Millen says”We thought we nailed it” Currently the US government is reviewing the committee’s guideline recommendations and the 2015 guidelines are expected to come out this fall Congress will be meeting to discuss various concerns including the evidence used Teicholz argues in her paper that the guidelines not only affect the diets of millions of Americans but they will also influence food labeling research priorities and dietary advice made by other Western countries So what does Teicholz recommend based on the latest evidence “I believe that the literature shows that the low-fat high-carbohydrate diet has not produced better health for Americans since it was first introduced as official government policy in 1980” she tells TIME in an email “For healthy people a reasonable recommendation would be simply to reverse out of the high-carb diet to the balance that Americans ate in 1965 before the obesity and diabetes epidemics: roughly 40% carbs 40% fat For people who are struggling with obesity and diabetes which is now an astonishing proportion of our population I believe that carbohydrate restricted dietsless than 40% carbsshould be presented as a safe and viable option” Contact us at editors@timecomTwo migrant workers convicted of killing a pair of British tourists in Thailand have lost an appeal against the death sentence prosecutors said Wednesday Agence France-Presse reports that Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Htun also known as Wai Phyo both Myanmar nationals who worked on the Thai resort island of Koh Tao now have 30 days to file an appeal at the Supreme Court The pair were convicted for the September 2014 murder of David Miller 24 and the rape and murder of Hannah Witheridge 23 both British nationals who were visiting the island as tourists The case drew international attention and the trial courted global scrutiny from migrant-rights advocates and legal experts who argued that the suspects might have been scapegoats Since their sentencing in December 2015 the pairs legal counsel has fought the ruling on the grounds that police mishandled evidence Read More: This Septic Isle: Backpackers Bloodshed and the Secretive World of Koh Tao Both of the men have denied any wrongdoing claiming that police had tortured them into making a confession Their lengthy trial was mired by allegations of coercion a bungled investigation and questionable DNA evidence A legal adviser to the convicted men’s families migrant-rights activist Andy Hall told the BBC that he and the pair’s counsel “don’t believe the court can say beyond reasonable doubt that Zaw Lin and Wai Phyo were responsible for the events which took place in September 2014” Thailand has not carried out an execution since 2009 [AFP] Write to Feliz Solomon at felizsolomon@timeinccom

the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsBeijing: A workaholic keen swimmer with an extensive knowledge of foreign literature —China’s state news agency Xinhua on Friday cracked open the door to President Xi Jinping’s private life in an unusual and glowing profile The private lives of senior Chinese leaders have traditionally been shrouded in secrecy and tell-all books with juicy gossip strictly off limits But since Xi took power five years ago the government has on occasion released personal details as it seems both to burnish his image as an approachable man of the people who will lead China to greatness and control the narrative about who he is File image of Chinese president Xi Jinping AP Xi emerged from a twice-a-decade Communist Party Congress last month with his power ever further cemented and key allies appointed to top new positions In a lengthy story published in Chinese and English in the early hours of Friday Xinhua hailed Xi as the “unrivalled helmsman” a term more frequently used to refer to the founder of modern China Mao Zedong rather than any other leaders “Wherever he works he makes a remarkable impact” Xinhua said While some of the anecdotes have previously been reported by state media —like his 2014 stroll around old Beijing alleyways during one of the city’s periodic smog crises —others were new Xi personally reviews every draft of major policy documents sentence by sentence Xinhua said “Sources close to him told Xinhua that all reports submitted to him no matter how late in the evening were returned with instructions the following morning” But he also “takes time out of his busy schedule to swim over 1000 meters a time” it added without saying how often he manages to fit this in Xi can reel off the names of foreign especially Russian writers and his “extensive knowledge of literature and the arts makes him a consummate communicator in the international arena” “Xi treats everyone with sincerity warmth attentiveness and forthrightness” it said However underscoring China’s sensitivities about more difficult parts of its recent past the Chinese version of the profile skipped a description of the suffering inflicted on Xi’s father Xi Zhongxun during the chaos of the Cultural Revolution when Mao declared class war “In 1962 Xi Zhongxun’s 16 years of suffering from political persecution began However he never gave in to adversity and ultimately helped clear the names of others who were persecuted” Xinhua said in its English profile “When his father was wronged Xi Jinping went through some tough times” it added without elaborating Public discussion of the Cultural Revolution is generally taboo in China Karachi: Pakistan’s chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq has offered a lifeline to off-spinner Saeed Ajmal insisting that the national selectors had not discarded him from future plans Ajmal has called on the national selectors to reward him for his good performances in domestic cricket by giving him a chance to play for the country again "Saeed has been a great bowler for Pakistan and it is a fact he performed well in the national T20 championship We are watching his performances in domestic first class matches If he continues his form he will be considered for selection" Inzamam said Ajmal was once Pakistan’s leading wicket-taker in all three formats before the ICC banned him from bowling due to an illegal bowling action in 2014 But he returned to competitive cricket with a modified action File photo of Inzamam-ul-Haq AFP However the national selectors have ignored Ajmal since he last appeared in a couple of limited over games in Bangladesh in April 2015 "It is never easy for a bowler to comeback with a modified bowling action and do well Saeed has shown lot of resilience and he can be rewarded" Inzamam said Ajmal who turned 39 this month made it clear that despite what his critics said he had no plans to retire in the near future "No matter what anyone says No matter what anyone thinks I have confidence in my abilities and I know I deserve another shot at international cricket" Ajmal said Inzamam however made it clear that while the selectors were watching Ajmal and other players performances the selection would be done according to the national team requirements "If Saeed is required at anytime for the Pakistan team he will be selected There is no question of ruling him out But we are now following a policy of picking players according to team requirements" he said Inzamam admitted that Pakistan was facing a drought of quality off-spinners with no action problems "Since Saeed and Hafeez encountered problems we have not had any off-spinner worthy of a second look I have asked our selector Tauseef Ahmed to hold a camp for promising off-break bowlers soon and see what can be done" he said Inzamam said that finding a quality off-spinner was as important for Pakistan as having leg-spinner Yasir Shah and other good left-arm spinners on the circuit The chief selector also said that Azhar Ali would continue to open the innings for Pakistan in Tests and One-day Internationals "We are no longer considering him as a middle order batsman He can bat equally well as an opener and at number three So we are now considering him as our regular opener But we will be taking a reserve

25th anniversary of Babri Masjid structure demolition which falls on 6 December to take steps to maintain communal harmony an official said on Tuesday The home ministry official said that the advisory was issued on Friday to all the chief secretaries and Director Generals of Police (DGPs) of all states and the LieutenantGovernors(L-G) of all Union Territories (UT) Representational image Reuters The advisory said that on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the demolition of disputed structure at Ayodhya on 6 December there could be a demonstration by both communities and it was advisable that the administration kept "utmost vigil" and took "all precautionary measures" The advisory is as per the guidelines formulated in 2008 A day ahead of the anniversary the Supreme Court also began final hearing in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janambhoomi dispute case There are deep fault lines in the Uttar Pradesh administration along allegiance of officers to factions within the Mulayam Singh Yadav household The violence in Mathura appears to be a direct manifestation of that The manner in which the district magistrate and the superintendent of police handled the situation speaks volumes In the higher echelons of administration it is no secret that they were working at cross-purposesAn encroacher being taken inside the District Hospital on a stretcher after he got injured during a clash in Mathura on Thursday PTI The reasons are not far to seek The DM owed allegiance to Ram Gopal Yadav and the SP belonged to the Akhilesh Yadav camp Ram Vriksh Yadav who squatted on the government’s 240-odd acre horticulture land in Jawahar Bagh and occupied even defence land derived his power from his proximity to one of these factions As a result the DM was wary of taking action against the encroachers whose number had swelled to over 2500 since 2014 Similarly the SP was driven to action to put down the rival camp not to uphold the rule of the law An incoherent and clueless administration responded to the situation in a clumsy manner despite reports that Yadav and his associates had amassed arsenal to thwart the police For the first time in the violent history of the state an additional superintendent of police – Mukul Dewedi – was dragged inside by criminals and ruthlessly beaten up before being shot in the forehead For his colleague Santosh Yadav death came quick as he was shot in the eye As of now 22 bodies of members of a breakaway sect of Baba Jai Gurudev have been recovered from the spot The whole episode has exposed a deep-seated malaise that afflicts the Akhilesh Yadav government It is beset by various factions within the Mulayam clan In this context the story of how the situation in Mathura came to this pass bears relevance A senior police officer who served in Mathura for many years pointed out that in 2014 two years after the death of Baba Jai Gurudev his disciple Ram Vriksh Yadav descended on Mathura under the banner of Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik Kranti Satyagrah along with 250-odd followers from Madhya Pradesh They were allowed to hold a one-day dharna at Jawahar Bagh a piece of land belonging to the horticulture department However Yadav pitched tents and started mobilising supporters from other parts of the country to encroach the piece of land Within two years the 240-acre land turned into a huge tenement of aggressive inhabitants owing allegiance to the splinter sect of Jai Gurudev The area developed a parallel network of water supply and other facilities like sewerage roads and schools Since Yadav claimed to have the blessings of the Mulayam household the administration chose to ignore the development till the issue was taken to the high court by a local lawyer Vijay Pal Singh The administration found its ostrich-like approach untenable when the high court gave it specific instruction to clear the area of squatter lest it would be taken as contempt of court Finding themselves in a piquant situation senior officials discussed the situation in detail but did not reach any concrete decision or draw a define action-plan Given Ram Vriksh Yadav’s proximity to a faction in the Samajwadi Party chief’s family senior officials dithered and let junior level officials to take charge of the situation On Wednesday when Dwivedi and his SHO Santosh Yadav reached the area they were just pushed into a situation of intense violence which they had not anticipated They were immediately deserted by police constables who too were taken off-guard by the attacks and ran for their lives Ironically while Dwivedi and Yadav were killed in the most brutal manner all top ranking officers seem to have suitably firewalled themselves by swearing allegiance to factions in the Mulayam household It would be nave to see Mathura violence as an aberration There have been umpteen number of instances in UP where police personnel surrendered meekly to criminals and even allowed them to lynch their officers This is a new trend with sinister portends It can further deepen the fault lines that already exist and create an unbridgeable chasm between vital arms of the government Editor’s note: When it was inaugurated in November 2012 the Aam Admi Party symbolised an experiment in audacity; Jacobin radicalism wrapped in a muffler It windmilled its catapult in the direction of the grand old goliaths of India’s political pantheon signalling its intent to dismantle the prevailing order Three years later on 10 February it succeeded in felling the Philistine giant seizing 67 of 70 seats in the Delhi legislative Assembly — 32 of which were held by the ruling BJP and eight by the Congress In the year that has elapsed since AAP has pendulated between triumph and failure — some of its shimmer has dulled and yet it is encrusted with new jewels; the muffler is frayed at the edges and still it flutters as the pennant for an alternative form of political engagement It has lost much of its original flock while gathering new unlikely adherents to its scrappy DIY dogma The party is marking its anniversary revelries by launching a massive self-congratulatory campaign ‘PehlaSaalBemisal (one wonderful year)’ to draw attention away from the disappointments and instead enumerate all that it has achieved We shouldn’t grudge AAP its birthday bash because that’s what every party does: glorify its performance on the ground But when it comes to politics AAP came in with the promise of a difference of ringing in an era of alternative politics AAP has left out that aspect of its promise from its anniversary achievements narrative To understand this aspect of the party and the bearing it has on alternative politics in India Firstpost has invited writers to assess AAP’s performance against its founding principles This essay by Firstpost Executive Editor Ajay Singh concludes the series At Lucknow’s state guest house on Meerabai Marg in 1993 BSP chief Kanshi Ram held aloft a pen and explained the complexity of politics and society in a manner which would otherwise be lost to a researcher in years of incomprehensible academic rigour and jargon “You see the society is like this pen; hierarchised vertically and my objective is to make it horizontal” he said in his exposition in front of a bunch of journalists “But you know how would I do it” he would spring a question and then answer without waiting for anyone to guess saying “Through the instrument of political power” The discourse was a complete departure from the usual political rhetoric in Uttar Pradesh where overweening influence of suave Brahminism in politics was unrelenting Kanshi Ram not only challenged this hegemony but also subverted it with the help of Mulayam Singh Yadav His rainbow coalition of Dalit other backwards and Muslims acquired power against the backdrop of the Babri Mosque demolition of 6 December 1992 Since then the BSP has acquired political power on its own or with the help of an alliance four times Kanshi Ram’s understudy and successor Mayawati has become a powerful politician in her own right and has ascended to the throne of UP many times Yet society and politics in UP remain as hierarchised as ever There may indeed be a change in the demographic composition of the ruling elite at Lucknow yet they have behaved like their predecessors Irrespective of their political denomination there is hardly any difference between Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati Both love and patronise elements like Yadav Singh the Noida engineer now facing corruption charge And they retain the same officer as their principal secretary The proverbial pen of Kanshi Ram is lost like a phoenix that can never be resurrected As a rookie reporter you rarely get a chance to meet a charismatic underground leader Vinod Mishra popularly known as VM of the CPI-ML (Liberation) was one such leader who was a cult figure in the eighties An engineering graduate Mishra was quite articulate and effective in his political positioning The mystique around him grew by the fact that he was a vocal but selective proponent of the theory that power flows through the barrel of a gun In my first meeting with him at a friend’s house in Lucknow he came across as a pragmatic revolutionary determined to challenge the status quo He was least bothered about the emergence of the BSP which monopolised the Dalits’ space in UP In fact the CPI-ML(Liberation) had occupied the same space in neighbouring Bihar “You see they (the BSP) cannot take away Dalits from us We (the party and Dalits) are related by blood” he would passionately emphasise to underscore his belief that the relationship between the social underdogs and Mishra’s variant of the radical left was unbreakable Mishra sounded genuine and his party’s base was expanding exponentially in Bihar Despite the high-sounding rhetoric that found resonance briefly Dalits and OBCs gradually drifted away from Mishra’s revolutionary dream and joined regional parties As of now the CPI-ML (Liberation) appears to be a pale shadow of the traditional left party like CPI The ideological fervour that promised to bring a radical change in society and politics is replaced by forging caste combinations and tactical alliances to win elections This is a classic case of “The revolution is dead Long live the revolution” LK Advani AP A few months before the 1991 elections BJP president LK Advani resumed his Yatra which had been terminated with his arrest at Samastipur in Bihar Unlike the past when he was travelling on a ‘Toyota Rath’ this time he was driving around eastern UP in a car I followed him as a reporter and interacted with people who came in large numbers at most of the places where he addressed gatherings What I found most surprising was the people’s abiding faith in the notion that Advani was divinely ordained to take up Lord Rama’s cause In Jaunpur and Azamgarh I saw people picking up dust from the trail of Advani’s car in the belief that the soil was sanctified by the leader’s presence “It embarrasses me no end” Advani would admit when asked about people’s innocence and credulity “Ram Lala hum aayenge mandir wahin banayenge (Lord Ram we shall come to build temple at Ayodhya)” was the ringing slogan that often prompted the BJP leader to declare in the midst of cheering crowds that no power on earth could stop the construction of the temple at Ayodhya The BJP came to power in UP in 1991 The subsequent agitation destroyed the mosque under whose dome the idols were kept Since then the BJP has come to power at the centre thrice but could do little to pave the way for the temple construction Advani as home minister came down quite harshly on the activists of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) when they tried to mobilise people for temple construction during the Vajpayee regime VP Singh who lost the prime ministership following Advani’s Rath Yatra was quite amused to see Advani’s dilemma as home minister This prompted him once to remark in a caustic candour “Bahut samjhaya Advaniji ko ki sadhuon ke chakkar me na pado ye apne maabaap ke nahin hue to tumhare kyo honge (I tried to convince Advani not to get involved with religious saints in politics with the belief that they belong to you They are hardly indebted to their parents why would they belong to you)” Through the above three stories I have tried to capture the reflections of the time and pick up a strand of alternative politics that often begins by promising a radical change but ultimately fights resolutely to retain status quo It may sound a clichéd expression but holds true of India’s political situation that more things change the more they remain the same But what appears truly worrisome is the fact that every alternative politics promises radical change but soon the statecraft invariably attains a new nadir of deceit and deception eroding the trust of the people and making them slightly more suspicious of the next political initiative In this sense alternative politics is no different from a revolution that devours its own children In the present circumstances if Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seen as inadequate to meet people’s expectations Arvind Kejriwal Nitish Kumar and Mamata Banerjee are equally seen as products of the lowest cunning of Indian politics Bereft of an icon Indian politics appear to be violently drifting away from its moorings letting the critical issues to be sorted out at street brawlsandTV studios in noisiest and superlative degree of self-righteousness What could be behind this travesty of ideals It could be the populist and short-term nature of electoral politics that makes them fling ideals and principles and run after votes This hypothesis can be supported by the fact that largely every movement toward alternative politics that has refrained from entering electoral politics has maintained its ideals no matter how debatable those ideals might be Those who still have faith in alternative politics can begin by some introspection about the term ‘alternative’ itself Arguably the structure of mainstream politics is perfectly okay and what is the need of hour is reform from within Part 1: Yogendra Yadav on how AAP tainted the idea of alternative politics Part 2: Shiv Vishwanathan says Arvind Kejriwal is the Maggi sauce of governance Part
