Scenic Culinaire features a real-time camera and screen to ensure each participant can see every cooking move in detail. Plenty of sessions are scheduled throughout the cruise, however with exclusive numbers, guests are encouraged to register their interest early.Scenic has also launched six new combination cruises ranging from the 19-day Eastern European Endeavour which travels from Prague to Bucharest along the Danube and through the less-travelled Black Sea region, to the 27-day European Sojourn which begins in Budapest cruising the popular Rhine-Main-Danube rivers and connecting with the Rhône in Lyon, ending in Nice.Aleisha Fittler, GM Product Development, commented: “France is the epicentre of cuisine and fine dining so we are delighted to introduce Scenic Culinaire to our guests. We know many have a huge passion for food and wine so we believe this is something that will really enhance their cruising experience and immerse them even further into the delights of French gastronomy.“Our combination cruises continue to grow in popularity so we have added a number of these to our brochure for the first time this year, some of which are based on guest feedback. Each itinerary in France has been designed to seamlessly connect across these diverse regions by air, rail or road, to deliver the ultimate French cruising experience. The Seine and Bordeaux and Seine and Rhône have been our most popular combination cruises with our new 10-day Douro river cruise also combining easily with France and proving to be popular combination too.”New Scenic Enrich experiences include Scenic Rouge – performed under a big-top in Lyon where guests will enjoy a traditional French cabaret performance including the famous can-can, and an exclusive four-course dining experience with matched vintages at the acclaimed Mumm Champagne house in Riems.

Eight months after the Supreme Court lifted the 2005 state governments ban on dance bars in the city several bar employees who were rendered unemployed for close to a decade will exercise their right to vote with caution Bar dancers who have been largely unemployed since 2005 are now looking forward to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections hoping that a new government will help bar owners lift their shutters once again Despite the Supreme Court having struck down the ban that reeked of moral policing in July 2013 the state government is still contemplating its further stand “The apex court passed a verdict to re-open the dance bars last year but Patil refused to lift the ban” said Swati (28) a former bar dancer who worked at an Andheri (East) bar Swati is among hundreds of former bar dancers

is being treated as a “prestige issue” in the election campaigning But she is not hopeful on the issue from BJP either “BJP had opposed the decriminalizing of homosexuality so we are not sure whether

Citing multiple sources CNN said Trump has expressed dislike for Spicer’s performance in the first two weeks of the administration and hence the search for a new Communications Director was launched Spicer went off to a rocky start with the press after angrily accusing it of covering news incorrectly In his first appearance as Press Secretary Spicer said the media deliberately tried to paint

Written by Samantak Das | Published: December 24 2016 1:08 am Memoirs of Roads: Calcutta from Colonial Urbanization to Global Modernization Top News Book name: Memoirs of Roads: Calcutta from Colonial Urbanization to Global Modernization Author: Sumanta Banerjee Publisher: Oxford University Press Pages: 186 Price: 695 Calcutta (Kolkata) is the locus that unifies Sumanta Banerjee’s oeuvre a terrain he finds endlessly fascinating and endlessly rewarding Like a lover so besotted by the beloved’s multitudinous quirks and quibbles that s/he cannot help circling back time and time again to explore the beloved’s many mysteries Banerjee keeps returning to the city of his birth to probe — yet again — some part of her inexhaustible mystique And we should be grateful for it For well over three decades now Banerjee has been chronicling those bits of the city that remain beyond the ken of the average English-educated Kalkattawallah From In the Wake of Naxalbari (1980) and the Thema Book of Naxalite Poetry (1987) to The Parlour and the Streets: Elite and popular culture in nineteenth-century Calcutta a couple of years later Banerjee has performed the task of educating and entertaining us with meticulously researched and engagingly presented accounts of times peoples and places that are integral to why we are what we are but which remain hidden from view — because they are either embarrassing to our sense of self or considered to be of marginal significance or both Thus his Dangerous Outcast: The prostitute in nineteenth-century Bengal (1998) brought this particular variety of humanity and the socio-ecological niche occupied by her into the limelight after having been consigned to darkest limbo by bhadralok society while The Wicked City: Crime and Punishment in Colonial Calcutta (2009) revelled in exploring the worlds of the killers house-breakers thieves swindlers pilferers forgers embezzlers smugglers gamblers drug dealers poisoners and other cognate colourful characters who slunk (not always noiselessly) through the underbelly of what used to take pride in being the “Second City of Empire” In his latest offering instead of his usual cast of weird and wonderful humans Banerjee’s focus is on the spaces they inhabit although here too he cannot help drawing a parallel between mere (physical) locale and more evocative (human) bonds The three roads that are the subject of his book are seen as “the grandmother (Bagbazar Street) a matriarch spreading her progeny of lanes and by-lanes” and the “midwife (Theatre Road) bringing to birth a hybrid lifestyle and architecture [bearing] the signature of the colonial era” while the third (Rashbehari Avenue) “can be likened to the growing up of a middle-class Bengali housewife gingerly stepping out into the limelight of modern society” In his sometimes meandering sometimes dead-straight-ahead but never boring narrative Banerjee animates the once-glorious now-decrepit city in strange and striking ways Here’s Banerjee quoting his diary to animate that quintessentially Calcutta phenomenon the temporary bustees on major thoroughfares that house by some estimates about 30 per cent of the city’s denizens: “At midnight as I walk down the paths of neon-lit glittering Park Street-Theatre Road where the bars and restaurants are still alive… it is now time for another Kolkata to come alive…men and women old and young drag out their belongings…hidden during the day…they lay [these] down on the pavements — plastic sheets discarded packing-case hardboards piles of newspapers or even vermin-eaten rags…these masses of heterogeneous families remain outside the boom of IT centres and shopping malls…[serving] the same old daily needs that the city’s underclasses have been serving for centuries” The reader will find much to be educated and amused by in this wonderfully picturesque work such as for example that Rashbehari Avenue that bastion of bhadralok propriety was originally called Main Sewer Road much to its dwellers’ discomfort who successfully petitioned the colonial sarkar bahadur to name it after that paradigm of middle-class success the High Court advocate in this case Sir Rashbehari Ghosh Memoirs of Roads is not content to merely recount the past however colourfully for Banerjee takes a stab at crystal-ball gazing in his concluding chapter subtitled “Towards a Future Megalopolis” where the question-mark takes on a somewhat ominous significance For Banerjee whose sympathies have always been with the deprived and dispossessed the creation of “a safe and walled megacity to feed the economic and social appetite of the new generation of beneficiaries of the neo-liberal economic order” is no cause for celebration In these planned places “roads lose their traditional role as a public space for citizens” and the urban commons like the Lakes off Rashbehari Avenue or parks on Theatre Road or the water tank in College Square are replaced by newly-demarcated pleasure spots — “golf courses swimming pools hotel chains and shopping malls…exclusively built and reserved for these residents” Call it the new apartheid based on money not melanin

Starting on Tuesday in Rabat stakeholders from across the sport including an array of former stars like Abedi Pele Austin Okocha and Samuel Eto’o have been invited to deliberate over the future of the tournament and other aspects of the African game New Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Ahmad promised a blanket review when he successfully challenged long-standing leader Issa Hayatou for the top CAF job in March Ahmad who uses only a single name also wants to review rules on hosting the finals which are proving increasingly prohibitive and reducing the number of potential candidates He has already suggested co-hosting that would allow CAF to consider proposals to increase the number of teams at the finals to 24 – almost half the organisation’s membership The frequency of the tournament would also be reviewed although there seems little appetite to change it from every two years to every four Hosting the tournament every two years in January means the leading players drawn increasingly from clubs in major European leagues face a tug of war for their services caught between duty for their national team and clubs that employ them Ahead of this year’s tournament held in Gabon there was an unprecedented number of players who turned down call-ups to stay with their clubs Those numbers are expected to rise if the next finals in Cameroon are hosted in January 2019 rather than a more convenient mid-year slot Hayatou persistently refused to entertain any change because he did not want to be seen to be buckling to pressure from European clubs He blamed inclement weather patterns in Africa for not holding the Nations Cup in mid-year but this argument was forgotten when only African countries bid to host the 2010 World Cup The Rabat symposium

allow its territory to be used for terror attacks against India and that it is willing to accept the substantive progress made through the back-channel between 2004 and 2008 So it is clear that despite the lowered optimism on achieving any of the deliverables that New Delhi had set out as markers for resumption of the dialogue process after the Mumbai attacksthe government has realised that it has no choice but to continue with the engagement process While it is still wary of the criticism it would invite in case it deepens the dialogue process without much result on the terror frontwhat is more important is to provide a sound strategic underpinning to this engagement effort One clear example of how India is still grappling with framing such a strategy is its stoic silence to ISI Chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pashas proposal to meet his Indian counterpart in a third country It is reliably confirmed that Lt Gen Pasha made this proposal through the Indian defence attachés posted in Islamabad This has been sounded out more than once but India is still to take a call The first doubtwhich could well be the caseis that this could just be all form and no substance and the second isof courseabout who will be the appropriate counterpart As it turns outthere have been instances of the RAW chief having met the ISI chief in the past so there should not be much difficulty in resolving the counterpart question though there is a strong case of nominating someone even more senior As for the first predicamentthere is no doubt that the conversation has little chance of success in terms of concrete outcomes buton balanceit is a better idea to talk In factsetting the contradictions asidethere is no other viable choice but to continuously strive to broaden the engagement matrix with Pakistan in a rational and calculated way The starting point for this has to be a firm acknowledgement of the principle that engagement cannot be conceived as a leverage in itself Ratherit is a process which can create leverage points In other wordsthere is every merit in examining engagement as a security strategy than as an action predicated on what the other sidein this case Pakistandoes on terror A flexible engagement strategy will ensure that the hard message on terror isat leastdelivered to those who have influence over it Take the case of Hafiz Saeedwhich has perplexed India no end as he continues to spew hatred against Indiaopenly on the streets of Lahore even after this was specifically raised at the crucial Thimphu meeting Now it turns outaccording to information available with Indiathat there is a tussle within the Lashkar-e-Toiba itself with the younger Lashkar members wanting to raise the groups profile by aligning its priorities to that of other international terror syndicates working against the West On the other handSaeed wants to keep the outfit India-focused while there is a minority view inside LeT that the group should even participate in the terror uprising within Pakistan In other wordstop Indian officials now have confirmation that there is growing difference of views within the rank and file of LeT over its future role This has increased the challenge for Pakistani intelligence agencies if they have to keep LeT under control and that is where Saeed is vital to his handlers This just illustrates the complexity of the situation and the dynamic nature of the terror problem in Pakistanthe epicentre of which is gradually shifting to southern Punjab For India to keep pace with these developments and shield itself effectivelyit needs to create multiple channels of engagement and calibrate the process accordingly This is exactly what the problem has become with the composite dialogue By stoppingpausing and sometimes incrementally starting the processdue to terror incidentsIndia has started to harm its own credibility This cycle has played out so many times that neither does pausing the dialogue hold any punch as a hard diplomatic message nor does it help India garner international support against terrorist groups in Pakistan On the contraryit ends up giving Pakistan an opportunity to underline Indian recalcitrance and effectively argue against it as an unreasonable position It isthereforevital to have a broader and more realistic interpretation of what constitutes an engagement strategy This is specifically applicable in Pakistans case given the internal turmoil in that country The armythe fundamentalist groupsthe political parties and the Pakistani civil society are living in a universe of contradictions with no single entity fully in control of policy and direction Much of the Western worldwhich too faces maximum risks from terrorists trained in Pakistanhas realised that the best chance is in engaging every segment of the complicated Pakistani system That is why it becomes hard to fathom as to why India has delayed its response to the ISI chiefs offer Or for that matterwhy is there still no creative effort to reach out to the Pakistan army chiefexcept routine requests from the Indian High Commission It is unfortunate that an engagement process be reduced to starting the composite dialogue or not And Islamabad has been quick on its feet to tell New Delhi that it was India which coined this term in the 1990s and sowhy would it want to change it And if sowhat would it now like to call it With serious existential questions facing itPakistan will want to bring India back into its internal political theatre be it through the question of river water sharingallegations of a dubious role in Balochistan and Afghanistan or for that matter taking the Kashmir issue to its very origins The signs are already visible in the demands being made through bilateral channels It is now for India to face up to this reality and put in place a comprehensive engagement strategy that involves all the stakeholders in Pakistanincluding external actors To assume that peace deals can be struck with the civilian government while cleverly keeping the military and other related actors out of the picture is as simplistic and removed from reality as the notion that not talking at all will bring pressure on Pakistan to rein in on terror outfits like the LeT Pakistan is changing by the day in unimaginable ways and any long-term strategy wouldthereforehave to be centred around the implications those changes hold for India pranabsamanta@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Tech Desk | Updated: February 16 2017 11:21 pm

(DUSU) elections are scheduled for 12 September A poll-bound North Campus looks something like this: There are garlanded campaigners backed by a gang of loud sloganeers that go from one college to another hundreds of the same posters are pasted on walls behind e-rickshaws and even on billboards Unimaginatively these bear only the name and party of the candidate Ask the student who goes around campus with slouched backpacks what they think of politics and they say “It’s a good launch pad for a longer career in national politics” Some other students huddled outside chai and maggi stalls say “People enroll in law degrees to contest and stay in the university longer there is big money in politics and easy fame” Amidst U-Special buses are several SUVs carrying an entourage of campaigners dressed quite predictably in white kurtas and jeans Yet another student says “The candidates are mostly from the Jat and Gurjar community In 2016-17 all four posts (president vice president secretary and joint secretary) were won by candidates from these communities that are for whatever reason infamous for rowdiness Why can’t elections be issue-based and intelligent” they ask This one-sidedness is lending incompleteness to this so called democratic exercise and the absence of women and students from North East is particularly hard to ignore Of the 22 women’s colleges in Delhi University only five colleges participate in DUSU elections These include Aditi Mahavidyalaya Lakshmibai College Bhagini Nivedita College Miranda House and SP Mukherji College for Women This means that a little less than 80 percent of DU’s women students don’t cast their vote Let’s take the example of Gurmehar Kaur whose social media outburst against ABVP made her famous Today she can’t vote because she’s a student of Lady Shri Ram College which isn’t a part of DUSU “Within our college premises our voice is free In our college union elections there’s a budgetary limit of Rs 3000 per candidate and only one prop can be used” says Kaur a literature student If women’s colleges are embraced within the larger democratic machinery they will bring in higher standards of discipline and might make the student wings of big political parties like the National Students Union of India (NSUI) and the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) more accountable towards maintaining peace “What’s the point of being cynical and protecting the girls from ‘dirty politics’ What comes out of protectionist and patriarchal spaces is a regressive mindset because girls might not have the tools or awareness to find their own voice in an increasingly political society It is a sort of ideological incarceration” says Sandhya D Nambiar professor of English at Jesus and Mary College another politically inactive college for women in DU’s South Campus Representational image AFP The role of women in the last six years has been limited to the positions of general secretary and joint secretary with the exception of ABVP’s Priyanka Chhawri who served as the vice-president of the union in 2016-17 Kawal Preet Kaur of the All India Students Association (AISA) joined the party when she was an undergrad student at Indraprastha College for Women which isn’t affiliated to DUSU She is now pursuing a degree in law from the university “In big parties like NSUI and ABVP women representation is more of tokenism DU politics is masculine in nature and it is part of AISA’s agenda to push for off-campus women’s colleges to join DUSU because to change a system one has to first be a part of it” explains the girl who is busy campaigning these days Instead of ensuring the safety of girls in a volatile environment it’s easier to just keep them away from it all “This is nothing but benevolent sexism” says Itisha Nagar professor of psychology at Kamala Nehru College an all-girls college in South Delhi The lack of being able to participate can be internalised by the girls as not being capable enough which leads to disenchantment with student issues at large She feels that being politically in sync with the rest of the students might be helpful in an era of social movements like Pinjra Tod (break the hostel locks) a fight for secure affordable and not gender-discriminatory accommodation for women students across Delhi Last year when the Delhi University inserted the None of The Above (NOTA) button on ballot boxes 17712 voters opted for it and this meant a seven percent dip in student participation from the 2015 Earlier this year St Stephens’ the alma mater of politicians like Kapil Sibal and Shashi Tharoor decided to apply for autonomy When granted St Stephens’ will be free to take its own decisions in framing syllabus fee structure and starting new college branches The institution doesn’t participate in DUSU elections and isn’t a member of the Delhi University Teachers’ Association either The oldest college in Delhi (established in 1881) now stands amidst the DUSU’s annual blitzkrieg as though disapprovingly The other ignored segment of voters that is suffering from disenchantment is students from the North East There are more than 20000 of them out of which less than 5000 cast their vote according to statistics shared by the North East Students’ Society Delhi University (NESSDU) which was established in 2012 Subrato Borah a former chairman of the organisation says the students are fed up of being treated like second class citizens He raises the issue of lack of accommodation for northeastern students and asks why large empty spaces within the campus cannot be utilised to construct more hostels “The Rajiv Gandhi Girls Hostel was built with funds from the DoNER Ministry but 1000 out of the 2500 seats have been given to outsiders There are no hostels for our boys Why would the students be interested in voting if basic needs haven’t been addressed in so many years” asks Borah He adds that Kiren Rijiju Union Minister of State for Home Affairs is also from the North East and that students aren’t seeing him take any concrete steps to make their lives simpler which further forces them to give up on the system and recede into their cocoons Rijum Rijum who is pursuing History (Honours) from Bhagat Singh college and hails from Arunachal Pradesh points out that the students unions don’t raise issues such as why Hindi is a qualifying subject when students from the North East aren’t familiar with it?“People in North India treat us like foreigners because of the lack of awareness about our culture There should be more about our history and culture in the curriculum” he said Pinky Baishy former cultural secretary of DUSU volunteers a little known fact: She used to conduct meetings with the Delhi Police so students in need of translators could reach out for help Another reason for the present polling ratio is the fact that students from the North East often don’t contest elections “Unless there are candidates the students can identify with the voter turnout won’t increase” says Adarsh Saharia who is from Assam and is contesting independently for the post of president from law faculty Professor Kamei Aphun who teaches sociology at the Delhi School of Economics says a Nodal Office for northeastern students may be present in every college but claims that this person is largely inactive unless a specific complaint needs to be addressed There’s thus a need for a more positive outreach by these bodies so that students from the North East feel their positioning in DU is more than that of a group constantly caught up in law and ordercomplications “The North East is seen as one block of votes and social mixture is limited The problem with North East cells is that only students from the seven states of the North East participate and that further pushes them into a corner when what’s actually needed is integration” said Amrapali Basumatary who teaches English at Kirori Mal College The problem is that successful integration requires a nuanced analysis and strategic action and at least till now DUSU doesn’t seem to have either "Iss mulkh ne har shaks jo ko kaam tha saunpa uss shaks ne uss kaam ki maachis jalakar chhod dee (Everyone in India was given a particular work to do But they instead let it burn down to the ground)" Piyush Mishra’s dialogue from the political drama film Gulaalcan be used to sum-up student politics in Delhi University in one cinematic frame The scene on campus is akin to the scene of match sticks in the hands of some being lit with passion and fury only to ultimately die to the floor A temporary passion has become permanent at the cost of democratic reason That is another reason Lionel feels so comfortable here, Madrid and Tokyo – the city of Rio is still grappling
