dominant performance to hammer Pakistan by 124 runs (Source: Reuters) Related News India produced a dominant performance to trounce arch-rivals Pakistan by 126 runs in a rain-curtailed match India had made a total of 319 for the loss of three wickets off the 48 overs allotted to them The match was then further curtailed and Pakistan had to chase a total of 289 from 41 overs India managed to skittle Pakistan out for 164 Let’s take a look at five talking points we got from the match: India’s opening pair of Dhawan-Rohit is alive and kicking This was the first time in 18 months that Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma had opened the innings for India The pair’s consistent performances were a big reason for India’s victory in 2013 but doubts have been raised over the inclusion of Shikhar Dhawan due to his inconsistent form On Sunday against Pakistan Rohit and Dhawan gave India an opening partnership of 136 Form is temporary class is permanent for Virat Kohli Virat Kohli had been imperious in 2016 but hasn’t been quite as successful with the bat in 2017 He underperformed in the Test series against Australia in which he also sustained an injury He also had a forgettable season in the Indian Premier League with the Royal Challengers Bangalore But against Pakistan he didn’t allow Pakistan to capitalise on the opening they got when Dhawan was dismissed He then built a blistering 96-run partnership with Yuvraj Singh that took India to a big total in the final overs Kohli remained unbeaten on 81 off 68 balls Ravindra Jadeja is a match-winner with the ball and on the field Over the past two years Ravindra Jadeja has grown into one of the most important units in the Indian team He picks an insane number of wickets and also has a reputation for turning games around in the lower order He is also one of India’s best fielders While he didn’t need to take out the sword against Pakistan Jadeja picked the crucial wickets of Azhar Ali and Mohammad Hafeez and also effected the run-out of Shoaib Malik through a brilliant direct hit Pakistan lack the bite they had when facing India Years of playing away from home seems to have taken a toll on the side Pakistan are far from the days when the likes of Inzamam-ul-Haq and Shoaib Akhtar used to often boss India on the pitch The two teams have only met in ICC tournaments since 2013 but the fact remains that Pakistan haven’t been able to beat India since 2015 On Sunday Pakistan were completely outclassed by India India’s pace department India are not always known to possess a dangerous pace battery but it seems they may have one this Champions Trophy Mohammad Shami was left out of this one but Umesh Yadav Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah managed to starve Pakistan batsmen for runs Umesh was the highest wicket

of both conventional and sub-conventional kinds Army officers said during a firepower demo conducted by the Armoured Corps Centre and School (ACC&S) and the Mechanised Infantry Regimental Centre (MIRC) in Ahmednagar The annual Fire Power and Manoeuvre Exercise and Equipment display was held on Wednesday at KK Ranges near Ahmednagar The spectacular demonstration of firepower and manoeuvre showcased the mechanised forces’ capabilities of tanks and armoured vehicles like BMPs and their proficiency and operational preparedness The ear-splitting thunder of tanks and Infantry Combat

counter-insurgency and counter-terrorism operations Armoured vehicles are also being fitted with Urban Survival Kits which make the vehicles adapt to warfare in built-up areas The main attraction of the exercise was the presence of T-90 tanks In the first part of the two-hour display the technological and tactical capabilities of the integrated might of the tanks ICVs and attack helicopters were showcased During the second part firing in static and dynamic modes was carried out The display saw the crew’s adeptness in handling the power of tanks and ICVs and hit the ‘bull’s eye’ again and

Bihar that will steer Bihar to the path of speedy progress and development" he said PTI Written by Chinmayi Arun | Published: May 25 2016 12:01 am The Supreme Court Related News Disappointing as the Supreme Court’s judgment on criminal defamation is it is not a big surprise It is not hard to imagine that a country that retains and uses anachronistic sedition and contempt of court laws will choose to retain defamation as well Unlike sedition or contempt of court which by definition punish speech against powerful state institutions defamation law is at least in theory available to everyone The judgment gives rise to a few obvious free speech concerns One is that it is unnecessary and disproportionate to criminalise defamation when a civil remedy exists for defamation Another is that criminal defamation law especially given that it punishes even truth-telling unless it is for the public good will lead to a chilling effect on speech The judgment however raises other questions The first of these is whether the government and the SC will take inconsistent stands about the right to reputation in the context of defamation and privacy The second is whether it is possible to have any worthwhile conversation about defamation without taking into account questions of power: Can we treat the defamation of and by prominent politicians big media houses and enormously rich companies exactly the same way as we treat the defamation of and by individual journalists penniless activists or young students On the question of the right to reputation — the SC judgment insists that the right to reputation is so deeply embedded within the right to life that criminal action by the state is necessary to protect individuals’ reputation It is only recently that we have taken to describing certain kinds of invasiveness as violations of privacy in India Take the examples used by the court to explain why even truthful statements may be defamatory: imputations of alcoholism consensual incest impotence or illegitimacy are seen by the court to be situations in which truth should not apply as a defence to defamation The court also used the example of rape survivors and people suffering from AIDS to highlight that there are truths about people that they might legitimate wish to keep private A privacy law would cover all this and would do so more effectively A landmark privacy case Mr X v Hospital Z is cited in the judgment in support of the apex court’s reasoning In Mr X v Hospital Z the SC recognised the right to privacy as a part of the right to life in the context of an AIDS patient The use of this case is somewhat at odds with the government and SC’s bizarre choice to re-examine whether a right to privacy is a fundamental right Imagine if the court’s reasoning about reputation were applied to the right to privacy — it would mean citizens can seek remedies when the state disrespects their right to reputation Criminal defamation was the paternalistic remedy offered by the pre-democratic state to protect reputations whenever it saw fit There has been enough criticism of the criminal justice system for it to be clear that it is difficult for the average citizen to register a criminal complaint and participate in the prosecution process This brings us to the second interesting issue — the question of power Big media regularly attacks powerless people In 2013 several Andhra Pradesh news channels slut-shamed female law students who had just emerged from a party celebrating their graduation Most university students do not have the resources to stand their ground and might find such an attack cripples their careers and the rest of their lives If their right to reputation matters they need a remedy that they can easily access The Leveson inquiry in the UK deliberated on questions like this It is not clear that criminal defamation helps in these cases since it depends on the police choosing to be helpful to the victims In the context of rape and domestic violence the system has failed disempowered victims These questions of power are important not only to understand the disproportionate impact of defamation They are also important when considering remedies for defamation Defamation law is not used exclusively by the disempowered against the powerful It is used by large companies to silence journalists who speak truth to power It is used by powerful people to send legal notices to publishing houses television channels and authors threatening them with criminal complaints and extortionate amounts in damages The average citizen has no access to this system and no funds to pay lawyers to harass those who sully her reputation This begs the question of whose reputation we refer to when we say the right to reputation is a fundamental right If it really is a fundamental right its enforcement must be made more accessible to people without resources and it should be available against the government It is evident from the narrative above that the defamation question is complicated The SC acknowledged correctly that there are at least two sets of rights involved here It however completely ignored the fact that the parties involved in defamation complaint are rarely equals The judgment was disappointing not just in the manner in which it was written but in its lack of nuance The silver lining is that if the court values the right to reputation so much it may mean that our right to privacy will survive The writer is executive director Centre for Communication Governance at
