campaigner’s dreams of captaining Europe in the biennial event in 2020 The former world number one was hoping to surpass Nick Faldo’s record Ryder Cup points tally in Minnesota earlier this month However not only did his team slip to a 17-11 defeat the Englishman failed to register a point in his three outings “I certainly wouldn’t want to be the captain next time around that’s too soon for me” Westwood told a news conference on the eve of the British Masters at The Grove in Watford “But I think 2020 is definitely on my radar There are a lot of candidates for it but I’ll be putting my name in the ring for sure it’s something I’d like to do” Westwood’s preference for the next edition in Paris in two years’ time would be to qualify for his 11th consecutive Ryder Cup as a player Failing that he would like to move into the backroom team and gain experience as a deputy skipper “I’ve played in 10 and witnessed 10 different forms of captaincy” said the 43-year-old “I’d like to maybe play again but if I can’t play again I’d like to do the assistant captain’s role “I paid a lot of attention to what Darren (Clarke) and his assistant captains were doing this year” Despite the emphatic margin of defeat Westwood felt there was little to choose between Europe and the US at Hazeltine National “I thought both teams played well” he said “The Americans did to us what we’ve been doing to them for the last 20 years “They probably holed more putts than us not a lot in it tee-to-green” Westwood suffered a fallout from the Ryder Cup when he opened with a 75 and an 82 at last

around the corner residents of Ambedkar Nagar’s Dhobi Ghat in Cuffe Parade have found an opportune time to press sitting MP and Congress candidate for South Mumbai Milind Deora for a favourable resolution to the long-pending dispute of lease renewal of the ghat Recently during his campaign rally in the Ambedkar Nagar slums in Cuffe Parade the association of washermen Rajat Consumer Co-operative Society invited Deora for redress of their issues Vijay Kanojia the society’s president said “We have been facing the issue of renewing the lease of the Dhobi Ghat for years now The revenue minister is demanding a sum of Rs 2240 crore for renewal of lease for this land With our income it is impossible to pool in such a large sum We have been supporting Congress for years and we expect the party to help us safeguard our source of livelihood now” Kanojia added that if the land was taken away they would be forced to move back to their villages According to the washermen working in Dhobi Ghat the lease last expired over 40 years ago after which it has never been renewed While in 2003 the revenue minister issued a notice to pay Rs 15 crore for renewal of the lease in 2013 the amount was raised to a significant Rs 2240 crore “We all pay a monthly rent of Rs 3000 for the ghats Even that amount is difficult to arrange How can the government expect us to pay such a huge sum”said Rajendra Kanojia a washerman working in Dhobi Ghat The 3344 square-metre area comprising 64 sections for washing clothes provides employment to over 2500 washermen A total of 132 shareholders together handle the working of the ghats The association which has already sent requests to Deora twice is now hopeful that with the elections coming up their problems will be heard A source from the Congress said the rates applied on Dhobi Ghat were in line with the Cuffe Parade property rates adding that it remained the only issue to be resolved “It is absurd to price the land in Ambedkar Nagar slums as per Cuffe Parade’s property rates Even if few crores are dropped the amount continues to remain too high for them to pay” the source said When contacted Deora told Newsline “I have already written to the revenue minister and requested them to reconsider the recommendations made on the basis of the ready reckoner I have been pursing the matter and assured the residents of Cuffe Parade Dhobi Ghat that I back their demand fully and will ensure they get immediate relief” tabassumbarnagarwala@expressiniacom For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related

to Queen Victoria “Why does everyone talk about change Aren’t things bad enough as they are” Something similar seems to be the sentiment in the Congress party when everyone asks them to change Why change when you are comfortable with defeat since you can always look back to the glory days You can just reassure yourself that those days will return Just look at history The Congress has a forgetful relationship with its own history It thinks it is a 129-year-old party going back to 1885 Of course that party was broken in 1969 by Indira Gandhi who was again expelled in 1977 and founded her own party in 1978 That party the Indian National Congress (Indira) lurched to its latest crisis last week Thus a party of 129 or 45 or 36 years has hit the skids But it is not the fault of the dynasty After all no dynasty member has been a PM for 25 years Will the future ever see a PM from the dynasty Will Dr Manmohan Singh go down in history as the last Congress PM Old parties have disappeared before The Liberal Party of Britain won a landslide victory in 1905 and twice more Then it split lost an election in 1924 and was never elected to office for the rest of the century Longevity is not immortality Think of the election results not as a revolution or a futuristic event but more as a renaissance — a rebirth a restoration As some shrewd people have observed we are back to 1952 Then there was a single dominant party and all other parties were dwarves Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was constantly admonished by the opposition parties for not doing enough for their growth He used to apologise as he could not help trouncing them election after election He won three elections convincingly and then the troubles began In 1967 the opposition parties spread their wings Indira Gandhi promptly chopped them off in 1971 Again they rose in 1977 phoenix-like and died three years later After one more success the Congress never recovered its past glory after 1989 The outlook is hopeless 25 years later But look at the winner The BJP is now the ‘Big Beast’ dwarfing others There is not even an official opposition Modi talks of embracing all parties and the 125 crore Indians as they march in step Nehru reportedly coined the slogan ‘Kadam Milake Chalo’ Modi could use the slogan The first 10 years after Independence if not 15 India had an effective Opposition despite the numbers The Congress behaved itself except perhaps when dismissing the Communist government in Kerala We remember those years nostalgically Maybe we are there once again there Mandal seems to have diminished if not declined Fragile coalitions are gone at the Centre Many state governments are reacting to the earthquake by adjusting to a post-Mandal post-Congress world The nation seems to have laid aside many though not all differences and decided that it wanted an orderly government at the Centre The Guardian has described the result as the final departure of the British That is harsh but there was a continuity between the British Raj and the Congress one T B Macaulay’s Indian Penal Code (IPC) rules as does the Civil Service established in his day that was copied by the British after the Northcote-Trevelyan reforms The home country has reformed its penal code and its civil service India remains the museum of British Imperialism That perhaps may be why the young are impatient for change At last there is a party in power that is unburdened by history or heritage; a party born after Independence with a leader to match in age That is a renaissance which promises a revolution Let us have a bureaucracy that delivers results rather than sticks to rules Let us have justice for a new India where women transgenders gay and lesbian citizens are not treated as victims of a Victorian

Messi and Aleix Vidal beat bitter rivals Real Madrid 3-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday to open up a 14-point lead over the European champions Barcelona players celebrate after beating Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu AFP In a recurring theme of this season Madrid were made to pay for Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema missing first-half chances as Barca took control after half-time Suarez rounded off a flowing counter-attack to open the scoring before Messi blasted home a penalty after Madrid defender Dani Carvajal was sent-off for punching the ball off the goal line And Messi was the creator as Vidal rubbed salt into Real’s wounds deep into stoppage time "The league isn’t finished we haven’t even completed the first half of the season" claimed Barca boss Ernesto Valverde on his side’s seemingly unassailable advantage However victory extends Barca’s unbeaten run to 25 games in all competitions as they moved nine points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid and exacted revenge for a 5-1 thrashing on aggregate in the Spanish Super Cup at the hands of Real in August Madrid do still have a game in hand over Barca to marginally reduce the gap at the top but their efforts in the new year are now likely to be more focused on becoming the first side to win three consecutive Champions League titles in over 40 years "We are down because it is a defeat that hurts" said Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane "Madrid never give up whatever happens It is a difficult moment because we’ve lost by three goals I could say we don’t deserve it but that is football" Despite the clash between the Spanish capital’s and Catalonia’s two giants taking place just two days after three parties favouring independence for the prosperous region from Spain retained an absolute majority in the Catalan parliament there was little attention paid to politics inside the ground once the action got underway Real rue Ronaldo miskick It could have been very different for the hosts if Ronaldo had buried a huge opportunity when he completely miskicked just 10 minutes in Barca didn’t threaten at all until the half hour mark when Messi finally found some room in a congested midfield to pick out Paulinho’s late run and the Brazilian’s acrobatic effort was matched by a flying save from Keylor Navas Seconds later it was Marc-Andre ter Stegen to demonstrate why he has been one of the keys to Barca’s success this season by getting an outstretched toe to turn Ronaldo’s fiercely struck shot behind Benzema was inches away from giving Real a half-time lead as he headed against the post two minutes before the break However Barca came out a different side in the second period to almost certainly put the title out of Madrid’s reach "In the second-half we managed to impose our control on the game" added Valverde Nine minutes after the break Sergio Busquets’s calm opened up the Madrid midfield as he fed Ivan Rakitic and Sergi Roberto eventually crossed to Suarez to apply the finishing touch Suarez was spared the embarrassment of missing two huge chances in an incredible goal mouth scramble that led to Barca’s second Navas saved Suarez’s first effort before he fired against the post with the goal at his mercy but Paulinho’s follow-up was punched off the line by Dani Carvajal Messi dispatched the resulting penalty into the top corner to kill the game as a contest and was the creator for Barca’s third in stoppage time when Vidal’s drive squeezed in under Navas Barca’s perfect weekend was rounded off as Valencia missed the chance to move into second place ahead of Atletico Madrid as they suffered a third defeat in four games Carlos Bacca scored the only goal as Villarreal won 1-0 at Mestalla and Valencia will also start the new year without top scorer Simeone Zaza who was sent-off after seeing two yellow cards in 60 seconds just before the hour mark Atletico were also beaten for the first time in La Liga this season 1-0 at Espanyol on Friday Written by Dhiraj

interesting turn (not necessarily for the better) courtesy a motley civil society caucus An eclectic group comprising of undoubtedly eminent citizens of India corporate leader Narayana Murthyactor Aamir Khanactivist Arvind Kejriwalyoga guru Baba Ramdev among others has written to the government strongly recommending the name of Kiran Bedithe outspoken former copfor the top job in the Central Information Commission Some have also thrown an additional gauntlet to the government if it doesnt appoint Bedithe prime minister must explain howand whyits chosen candidate is better than Bedi for the job This intervention is peculiarinterfering and damaging for a number of reasons Peculiar because one doesnt quite know what made a group of such diverse individuals agree on a singleand judging by her past record quite controversialname for such an important job The point is well taken that the right to information has been incrementally gained by a clamour form ordinary citizens outside of governmentand therefore we the people have a unique stake in tracking the CICs post Howeveris recommending candidates the right way to go about this The general criteria/qualifications for appointment to the CIC are enshrined in the Right to Information Act in any case By recommending just one personsomeone who often polarises even larger civil societys opinion on a number of issuesthis particular group of individuals has left itself open to well-justified criticismof promoting vested interestand a specific agendaof their own making In doing sothey have hardly distinguished themselves from the government at least their own perception of how government operates Presumably Messrs Murthy et al strongly believe that the government is incapable of making a fair and appropriate decision Like many other cynicsthey perhaps believe that the government gives short shrift to merit in most important appointments While there may indeed be numerous instances of such decision-makingit would be wrong to say that the government never makes appointments based on competence and merit It does The outgoing CICfor examplehad a very good record and was appointed by the government In factin a democratic system of governmentthe electorate grants their chosen government the authority to make key appointments Civil society cannot suddenly claim the right to have an equal say in the appointment of government officials Thats mixing up roles and interfering outside ones domain After allwe dont want the government to recommend names for company CEOs or heads of prominent NGOs Of coursecivil society has every right to hold those appointed to important offices to account And civil society groups have done a good job of this over the years The move to make it compulsory for all candidates in elections to declare their assets was a civil society initiative The move to make judges disclose their assets was also a civil society initiative to begin with And thats the crux of civil societys role strengthen institutional checks and balances so that the precise profile of particular individuals matters less Unfortunatelyin Indiathere is a consistent bias in favour of the individual in preference to the institution or office that the person occupies Governments are guilty of thiseven if they do choose competent individuals often enough If civil society too begins to play in favour of individuals rather than institutionsthen the cause of accountability and institutional strength will stand deeply damaged The best example of institutional strength within the larger set up of the government is the Election Commission of India For an institution always manned by ex-bureaucratsmany of them chosen for their proximity to the government of the dayit has a remarkably good reputation for being an impartial authority which conducts the worlds largest democratic exercise in a free and fair manner It is a reputation which resonates with the people of India at largeand almost all observers of democratic processes anywhere in the world Some will say that it only acquired its independence courtesy an individual TN Seshan But that would be giving too much credit to one man Remember that before Seshanpolitics and therefore elections in India were largely unipolarand it is only at around the time that he became chief election commissionerdid the disintegration of the Congress system and the first signs of a contested multiparty system begin Someone else in Seshans place may have asserted neutrality and independence toogiven that the rules and laws which protected the commission were in place in any case Remember that there was a free and fair election in 1977 too when the Congress first lost power at the Centre Even if one gives Seshan some credit for asserting the Commissions independenceone mustnt forget that the assertion lasted beyond the somewhat megalomaniacal Seshans term in office The institutional strength enabled the commission to come out unscathed from MS Gills questionable decision to join party politics not long after leaving office as CEC Gill may have lost credibility but the commission did not Similarlydespite the many allegations of political bias thrown at then election commissioner (and now CEC) Navin Chawlathe commission never lost its wider credibility The case of the election commission is a classic case of the quality of an institution taking precedence over individuals who have occupied positions in it at different points of time And that really is the position a body like the Information Commission needs to aspire to Even if the government makes inappropriate choices for the top jobs on occasionthe institution should have the checks already enshrined in the legislationand enforced by pressure from civil society to remain strong and credible despite a less than satisfactory egg or two By joining the appointments gamehowevercivil society aspires to become a parallel centre of powernot a

Published: November 16 2016 3:45 pm R Ashwin (L) India’s leading spinner had a below par performance in Rajkot (Source: Reuters) Top News Under fire after a below-par show on a good batting strip the Indian spinners will aim for an improved show on a comparatively more helpful track as they take on a gritty England in the second cricket Test starting in Visakhapatnam on Thursday The pitch at the ACA-VDCA ground is expected to be a rank turner that will test the visiting side’s batting unit big time after skipper Virat Kohli expressed his displeasure about the Rajkot strip where Indian spinners got a total nine wickets with four English batsmen scoring hundreds Questions are being raised about Ravichandran Ashwin’s ability to get wickets on a good track after finishing with underwhelming match figures of 3/230 Veteran opener Gautam Gambhir’s place in the side is also under scanner after his poor show in the first Test and now that young KL Rahul has been fast-tracked into side in the wake of his good show on his Ranji comeback the Delhi southpaw will certainly be on tenterhooks As the battle is expected to boil down to the spinners it will be interesting whether Virat Kohli wants an extra batsman or an all-rounder in the playing XI Fielding is another area where the Indians would like to improve after their dropped catches Spin has been the way forward for India but the mantra did not exactly work out for MS Dhoni and Co more than four years ago when England snatched a 2-1 series win after losing the first Test in Ahmedabad It was widely attributed that India will come out all guns blazing against the embattled England especially after their embarrassing first-ever defeat in Bangladesh about two weeks ago Despite the drawn result four of England’s batsmen got centuries and spinners had a larger share of 13 wickets Alastair Cook and Co have shown that they they will not be pushovers unlike New Zealand who were whitewashed 3-0 in the last series It’s clear from the visitors’ improved show that a tricky road lies ahead for India The famed Indian spinners did not dominate in Rajkot where the battle was won by the England troika of Moeen Ali Zafar Ansari and leg-spinner Adil Rashid who returned with a match-haul of seven wickets Head coach Anil Kumble however defended their spinners who did not get much turn in Rajkot to return with nine wickets “Just because they got more wickets than our spinners doesn’t mean we will be at a loss but that’s what I am saying that we batted 160 overs We will make our strategy based on the pitch we get we will select the team accordingly We play to take 20 wickets and win matches Whatever wicket we get we will play on that” Kumble said Action shifting to Visakhapatnam Ravichandran Ashwin will be in focus Ravindra Jadeja and Amit Mishra will also like to up the ante The leg-spinner Mishra in particular will be looking forward to return to the venue where he had shot New Zealand out for 79 in 231 overs with his devastating 5/18 in an ODI two weeks back But it is really not the bowling that will turn it around for India as the New Zealand series suggested that India is yet to come to terms with five-bowler theory as there has been times the middle-order has looked brittle whenever Kohli or Rahane has had failures The middle-order looked wobbly the moment Cheteshwar Pujara or Ajinkya Rahane have a failure with the bat as they have to bat deep with Virat Kohli at centre to give their spinners enough cushion on the scoreboard Gambhir’s comeback experiment is clearly not giving the results and the lefthander with his open chested stance found himself out of sorts against a Stuart Broad in-coming delivery to be trapped leg before wicket Making a return after two years Gambhir’s Test comeback scores read 29-50 against New Zealand and 29-0 against England enough for the team thinktank to rush in a fit-again KL Rahul midway from his Ranji Trophy match in Vizianagaram About the spin battle England cannot be underestimated and they have made their intention clear by extending the contract of Pakistani great Saqlain Mushtaq who’s travelling as the spin bowling consultant Originally he was slated to leave after the first Test but Saqlain is to stay here till Mohali Test as there will be an off the field battle between him and India head coach Anil Kumble He has made his presence felt in Rajkot with Rashid attributing the fact that the former Pakistani off-spinner had made to bowl at natural pace rather than being quick in the air to get more turn Past series have proven that India tour have produced two of the best batsmen they have produced recently — in Cook and Joe Root both of whom made impressive debuts in Nagpur in 2006 and 2012 Much similar to what happened in the past the present series has seen the emergence of Haseeb Hameed who showed the perfect temperament needed in a Test format by leaving the ball and dodging well to bouncers with his 31 and 82 He also had a combative approach to spin and was not afraid of running down the pitch besides being a handy fielder at short leg as Hameed’s impressive debut has been the biggest positive in the drawn affair The skipper Cook has returned to his masterful best becoming the first Englishman to get past 1000 Test runs in India en rout to his 130 in the second innings while Root proved his consistency by laying the foundation in the first innings with his 124 To make matters more tilted to the visiting side England have a fit-again James Anderson in the squad The English leader of the pace attack had returned with six wickets to complement their spinners at Eden Gardens in Kolkata to help them take a 2-1 lead going into the last and fourth Test in Nagpur which resulted in a draw It may not be a surprise if Anderson is included in the side in place of Chris Woakes but it remains to be seen whether Trevor Bayliss rushes him after his recovery from shoulder injury Whatever the combination or the conditions may be India will be certainly wary of an England backfire in their own spin-friendly domain Squads: India: Virat Kohli Murali Vijay Gautam Gambhir Cheteshwar Pujara Virat Kohli Ajinkya
