three-quarters of it should do and keep his body in order here as well as in Hubli for the third unofficial Test against West Indies A That should pretty much seal a swift return to the Test team for

of Graeme Smith were facing him But where he was found out against Englandand what eventually led to his downfallwas a new-found inability to strike with an ageing ball Or even with the second new

Thanksperhapsto my starsI have had the good fortune to watch from a ringside seat the inspiring rise and sad decline of Indias apex legislaturefrom the first day of the first session of the provisional Parliament in 1950 The Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were elected two years later Until 1967I covered both Houses on a daily basisand have never ceased my vigil since Distressinglydisruption and debasement of Parliamentat the hands of its own membersbegan decades ago and has steadily worsened over the years It now seems that unless heroic efforts are made to first stem the rot and then reverse the tragic trendParliaments authority and prestige could be destroyed completely Wednesdays exchange of blows in the Rajya Sabha between two honourable members may well be a precursor of more squalid episodes Younger generations might find it hard to believebut there were times when things were totally different The 17 years of Jawaharlal Nehru constituted a glorious period in Parliaments history Foreign observers held it up as a role model for legislatures of other newly independent countries There was a bond of mutual respect between Nehru and Parliament On occasions when tempers ran highhe would spring to his feet and easily restore calm Today there is no one around to be able do so In 1957when his son-in-lawFeroze Gandhidrove his government up the wall over the Mundhra affair a case of questionable investments by the Life Insurance Corporation in the highly dubious shares of a certain industrialist Nehru did not deny the charge of wrongdoing out of hand Insteadhe spoke of Parliaments majesty and ordered a judicial inquiry Unfortunatelythe Parliaments decline began after the general elections of 1967in which the Congress majority was greatly erodedand the more aggressive wing of the socialistsled by Ram Manohar Lohiawon more seats They targeted the rather inexperienced and shy Indira Gandhi Lohia nicknamed her goongi gudiya; his lieutenants used ruder invectives Regrettablyafter attaining supremacy in both the Congress and the countryshe treated parliamentary opposition as disdainfully as it had treated her As nowso then the heavily outnumbered opposition used the weapon of corruption to strike at her Hardly anybody remembers the name of Tulmohan Ram In Indira Gandhis heyday in the 1970she became the reason for the first ever disruption of an entire session of Parliamentwhich has since become a precedent to be followed The innocuous Congress MP from Bihar had done nothing wrong himself His bosses had made him sign some papers and used them to make money Rajiv Gandhi was reigning supreme until Bofors got the better of him His nemesisV P Singhhoweverlasted as prime minister for just 11 months After the defeat of PV Narasimha Raos government in 1996the Congress went into the wilderness for eight yearsduring which the BJP-led coalition ruledexcept for the first two years It was then that the seeds of todays seemingly irremediable malaise were sown To put it bluntlysince 1998the level of animosity between the two main parties has soared so high that the basic norms and decencieswithout which the parliamentary system just cannot functionare no longer being followedand indeed cannot be followed Both sides are more or less equally to blame For instancethe Congress is justified in complaining that a report by the Comptroller and Auditor General cannot be grounds for demanding the prime ministers resignation and then holding Parliament to ransom for two weeks But thenwhy had the self-same Congress demanded the resignation of then defence minister George Fernandes after the CAG had reported on the coffin scamand then disrupted Parliament for nearly 20 days What has turned the situation particularly ugly is that the BJP is punch drunk with the belief that it has got its Bofors moment again The Congress suffers from the delusion that it can pass a populist bill to amend the Constitution in the midst of hellish noise and thus spike the BJPs gunsaimed at the alleged coal scam Indeedpolitics has become thoroughly bizarre becausewhatever the issue in contentionit instantly becomes occasion for a slugfest between the core of the ruling coalition and the principal opposition party Like the proverbial kettle and poteach is calling the other blackalthough both are tarred by the same brush In all cultures and all languagesthere is a saying that two wrongs never make one right But it is the contribution of the Indian political class to human thought that when two parties opposed to each other

(Source: Reuters) Related News Dustin Brown’s audacious attempt to unseat defending Wimbledon champion Andy Murray with a show-boating brand of serve and volley tennis was always likely to end in failure And it did The crowd warmed to the dreadlocked German though especially those pining for the days when grasscourt tennis really was grasscourt tennis and volleying was revered These days serve and volleyers are regarded as novelty attractions in a sport dominated by players more than happy to win back at the baseline Take a peak at the wear pattern on Wimbledon’s lawns this week and the baselines are straw-coloured and dusty It’s a far cry from the days when net-rushing turf warriors like John McEnroe Boris Becker and Pete Sampras left the baselines alone and chewed up the zone around the service boxes There are still players prepared to gamble though — which is how Germany’s Mischa Zverev describes his serve and volley game that bamboozled Murray at this year’s Australian Open “It’s like flipping a coin 200 times a day and then hopefully you win the majority of those coin tosses” the German 27th seed who plays Mikhail Kukushkin on Thursday says “You need to be ready mentally to (play serve and volley) for months and months at a time Maybe lose 6-2 6-2 get passed 75 times and still be okay the next time you do it” There are multiple reasons it appears that only a handful of players — Zverev giant Croatian Ivo Karlovic Luxembourg left-hander Gilles Muller Queen’s Club champion Feliciano Lopez and Ukraine’s Sergiy Stakhovsky — are serve and volleying In 2002 when critics decried the shortness of the rallies Wimbledon switched to a harder-wearing rye grass The result was less skid and higher more trustworthy bounce giving baseliners crucial extra time to line up their passing shots Slower balls enhanced strings offering more spin and control and the fact that modern groundstrokes have become so deadly are also contributory factors When Lleyton Hewitt essentially a baseliner won the Wimbledon title in 2002 serve-and-volley made up 33 percent of total points in the men’s draw Now it is in single digits Yet when utilised the success rate is high Muller followed his serve in a relatively modest 32 times during a five-set marathon against Czech Lukas Rosol on Wednesday but won 81 percent of those points “You have to mix it up you can’t give these guys too many targets” Muller who was bumped up to 16th seed from a ranking of 26 because of his grasscourt acumen told Reuters “But I use it a couple of times a game maybe more Back in 2001 when I was reached the junior final the courts were really fast The bounce is still low but it’s slow too “That makes it harder” Stakhovsky who in 2013 famously beat Wimbledon king Roger Federer playing old-school serve and volley tennis said the tactic can cause shocks every now and again but the percentages are loaded in favour of those who stay back “Dustin is one of the few that come in all the time but it’s an unacceptable level of risk” the Ukrainian told Reuters after losing to Japan’s Kei Nishikori “You won’t get away with it The pace of the courts are slow It used to be a wide serve and volley into the corner point done Now a deep volley is not dangerous any more and you can become a sitting duck” “I understand the spectators want to see longer rallies not just 180 serves in a match but somewhere along the lines it just went too much towards the extremes” There is hope though for lovers of the volleying arts Ultimate baseline warrior Rafa Nadal played some sublime serve and volley points against Donald Young on Wednesday and Federer will employ the tactic “If I were coaching a young player I would teach them to serve and volley” 34-year-old Muller said “95 percent of the top 100 are not doing it so that means they never practise to prepare for a serve and volleyer coming at them If you mix it up and throw in some serve and volley it makes the returner take more risks” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | London | Published: November 19 2015 10:42 am Bella Thorne admits she is embroiled in a bitter
