the women’s category has refused to undergo hormone therapy or any surgical intervention saying she always competed the way she was and would not like to change that “I won’t undergo surgery or any other procedure At every level of my life — junior sub-junior or Under-20 — I have competed the way I am I’ve been told the hormonal issue with me is natural so that’s why we have decided this” Dutee told The Indian Express The 18-year-old sprinter who was dropped from the last Commonwealth Games because of her condition recently started training in Patiala Backing Dutee who is the 100m junior national champion the Sports Authority of India (SAI) is in the process of consulting lawyers ahead of filing a motion in the Court of Arbitration in Sports (CAS) in Lausanne Switzerland The motion will try and get overturned the 2011 guidelines of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) that regulate the eligibility of women with hyper androgenism by advising them hormone therapy and in some cases surgery South African Olympic medallist Caster Semenya too had to undergo treatment before she was allowed to compete again The motion if successful will be a landmark case challenging the prevalent practice of “bringing the testosterone levels within permissible limits” SAI has taken upon itself to ensure that the young athlete gets back on track soon “The Sports Minister has given the assurance to Parliament that we will support the girl to an extent We are trying our best to see that she is taken back” SAI DirectorGeneral Jiji Thomson said Before Dutee came to the decision of avoiding medical intervention she was made aware of the consequences of the therapy by Dr Payoshini Mitra a researcher and activist dealing with gender issues in sport “It is a unique case since the hyper androgensim guidelines came out in 2011 where some sort of intervention could be possible from people like me who understand that this policy is discriminatory and harmful for young athletes like Dutee So even before the system — the sports federation of the country or the IAAF — could test or ask the athlete to get some medical intervention we could step in and say that you must first understand the consequences of these medical interventions and then decide what you want So she was very lucky” Dr Mitra said According to her the argument against these guidelines and one that the lawyers may raise in Lausanne is fairly simple: The regulations aim at lowering testosterone regardless of athletes’ health symptoms and fertility goals conflicts with the medical treatment of hyper androgenism and that the policies that regulate hyper androgenism in women athletes are not in keeping with best ethical practices Before approaching CAS Dutee has to file an appeal with the Athletics Federation of India “We need some more clarifications before we approach the CAS Our lawyers said that before going to the CAS Dutee needs to appeal against this order of the AFI”

Asgarally consciously stays away from the costume drama of the Hindi film industry Dressing up the stars for an item song or running around trees is not his style he says But when filmmaker Prawaal Raman approached him to recreate the look of one of the most notorious conmen of the country Charles Sobhraj for his film Main Aur Charles Asgarally was up for the challenge A fictionalised account of serial killer Sobhraj (played by Randeep Hooda) Main Aur Charles features events witnessed by investigating officer Amod Kant (essayed by Adil Hussain) and is slated for release soon But in the meantime it’s Hooda’s look in the film which is strikingly similar to Sobhraj that has baffled viewers The credit for this goes to Asgarally who rifled through his father’s uncles’ and aunts’ old trunks and wardrobes explored the old godowns for fabrics and yardage of the ’70s and ’80s wandered into vintage shops for accessories like sunglasses and skimmed through countless papers articles photos and videos to get Sobhraj’s look right “This was an intriguing character and a thrilling script and I found it irresistibly good to miss The challenge here was covering three decades in a man’s life” says Asgarally who is pretty sure that Charles’ beret will be a trending fashion after the film release Joined by his four assistants and Raman’s production team the designer took three months and churned out over 150 costumes for Hooda alone Clubbed with it was the look of the entire starcast including Hussain’s “Charles was a master of disguise a smooth operator and a conman He was also a well-travelled man with expensive taste and visited many countries including Taiwan Nepal Thailand and France He was intelligent and a linguist with a keen sense of fashion” says Asgarally The costumes had to do justice to Hooda’s deeply flawed yet suave character “For instance to look like royalty from Nepal we sourced royal wardrobe from the country” he says Not only did Asgarally connect the time period but also got under the skin of Sobhraj his psychology and his mannerisms “how he would dress think wear and walk” Textures he says plays a huge role especially now that everything is

which may be called the ?Wisdom of the Crowd? A lot of distributed wisdom resides in our society The repositories of such wisdom and values are not always eminent and well-known personalities Ordinary citizenswho are patriotsserve the society with compassion and commitmenttry to live their lives ethicallyand have gained wisdom through experience and reflectionalso can offer useful guidance to politicians Indeedthe Internet has provided them a powerful platform to communicate their views widely But is our largely insular political community listening As I had mentioned in my last columna critical weakness in our democracy is the conspicuous disconnect between demos (population) and cracy (not only the machinery of governance but also the machinery of political parties) By and largepolitical leaders do not adequately listen to the peoples voicesespecially the critical voices of wise and independent-minded persons in society The undesirably high element of competition among political partiesand the correspondingly low level of cooperation and consensus based on genuine mutual dialogue among themhas led to a situation that makes most leadersincluding those with vision and wisdomspend most of their energies in trying to win and retain power As a resultexpedient compulsions of polemical politics often prevail over the ideals and long-term goals professed by various parties An integral approach to issues and problems before the nation quickly yields to narrow electoral considerations The resulting herd mentality and the preponderance of allegations and counter-allegations are all too evident in the proceedings of our Parliament and state legislatures In a system that puts a premium on power as an end in itselfrather than as a means to collectively attain lofty endsinter-party competition routinely engenders intra-party competition among leading members of the same organisation Of coursedynastic parties quell this problem by quelling inner-party democracy itself Thereforethe leaders of such parties are even less inclined than others to listen to the sagacious voices of eminent or ordinary members of society They demand and encourage sycophancy Sagacityhowevercan never befriend sycophancy Wise men are not yes-men Its become obvious today that our democratic system can be reformed only by first reforming our political parties To a greater or lesser degreetheir structureculture and overall functioning are incompatible with the ideals of democracy Honest introspection has become a rarity Even intra-party communicationso essential for leaders to stay in touch with foot soldierswho have their ear to the groundis often a mere formality Leaders who pay lip service to it often end up making huge mistakes at the hustings We cannot have much hope of self-reform from parties that do not respect inner-party democracy Howevereven those partiessuch the BJPfor whom internal democracy is an article of faithmust begin to give due importance to the suggestionscriticism and advice coming from the people When wise persons with no axe to grind express disappointment over the happenings in any partyalarm bells must ring in the minds of its leaders Indeedthe very dynamics of the relationship between the people and political parties needs to be recast at a time when the Internet age is creating an explosive demand for transparencyaccountability and participative democracy There is an urgent need for political parties to adopt more and more institutional and informal ways to listen to the voices of their mastersthe people Our democracy will become more vibrantand our nations progress will stand on a stronger and more sustainable footingwhen our political system begins to heed the freefrank and fearless views of the Citizen-Philosophers or Gurus in our society sudheenkulkarni@gmailcom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by MK VENU | Published: October 22 2012 2:43 am Related News Recentlymany commentators have lamented the near decimation of the institutions of governancewhich are meant to promote equity and fairness in society In realitythese institutions have remained largely unchanged in our robust democracy The problem is they have been overtakenindeed numbedby the speed of global finance capitalespecially in the past decade In emerging economies like IndiaChina Brazil and the likewe are seeing 20th century institutions grappling with the sheer speed of 21st century finance capital This is fuelling both massive corruption and generalised inflationboth deeply linked to unprecedented growth in the real estate market and land prices In India toothe global-finance-driven land market has become the biggest site of contestation among the elitesas seen in the recent controversies engulfing Robert VadraNitin GadkariAjit Pawarand even Anjali Damania and other land-owning civil society luminaries Mind youone is not blaming global finance for our present ills One is merely arguing that our older institutions have not reinvented fast enough to deal with the dynamic of massive global capital and its impact in terms of the pace of commoditisation of resources like landspectrumcoal mines etc Normallythe connection between the pace of global finance capital and the need to reinvent domestic legal and regulatory institutions is not easily seen in the midst of the bitter battles currently being fought among our post-reforms elites represented by the political classbureaucracybusinesses as well as media and civil society Indeedthere is a robust link between the pace of finance capital and the consequent financialisation of resources such as land and minerals The speed of finance capital was starkly visible in the way just a few acres of land costing about Rs 75 crore multiplies to nearly Rs 58 crore in a matter of a few months Of coursethere is nothing illegal about the speed of finance capital creation with some help from government permissions Howeverthere could be ethical questions raised around this speed of capital creation among the elites with privileged informationcompared to those who do not have access to such information You just have to see the amount of land some regional party chieftains and their associates have aggregated around sites of development such as airportsroads and metros in various statesto understand the two-speed finance capitalist economy one is talking about The ethical question relates to what Ashok Khemkaas chief of land registration and consolidation in Haryana had raised after he was unceremoniously transferred In a television interviewKhemka invoked the Supreme Court orders relating to both the re-auctioning of 2G licences and the presidential reference on the governments discretion to alienate scarce resources The judgementsread togetherclearly say that the bulk of the benefit of scarce resources must eventually go to the people The Supreme Court can intervene if the benefit of national resources do not accrue to the people at large Khemka asserted that a large part of the value of landwhich multiplies after the state governments give all relevant permissions for change of land use from agriculture to other commercial purposesis captured by middlemen While this question came into sharp focus over spectrum and coal allocationits ethics have not been debated enough for land allocationwhich is far more critical for the aam aadmi than spectrum or coal The problem is that all existing legal and regulatory institutions relating to land somehow permit the capture of value by middlemen and brokerswho are using the power and speed of global capital to get their benefit in double-quick time The land use change permitted for Lavasa Corporation may also be entirely legal but would it pass the test of all the ethical questions now being raisedin the context of how cheaply the land was given away We live in complex times where legality and ethics seem to be at odds with each other This brings us back to the original question whether our outdated institutions are able to deal with the speed of global finance capitalwhich inherently creates inequity Global capital by itself is like a wild species that needs to be tamed from time to time It needs to be preserved and tamed at the same time It requires enlightened leadership to do so Unfortunatelythe two main political formationsthe Congress and the BJPare still unable to grapple with the unbridled commoditisation of scarce resources like land that has caused growing resentment among small farmers and urban land squatters in recent years A simple statistic reveals the sheer extent of distortion in land use A report recently released by the housing ministry says that there are 11 million urban houses lying vacantmany of them bought purely for investment purposes Thisat a time the urban demand supply gap for housing is put at about 19 million by the same study 19 million households desperately need housing and 11 million are lying vacant and probably being traded like a commodity in the market You cant have a bigger example of policy-led inequity Real estate companies hoard land with the help of state governments Nobody has given a convincing explanation as to why the Haryana government allowed a company to hoard about 31 acres of land for 15 years without constructing Nobody ever asked questions Nowpeople are asking questions Prime Minister Manmohan Singh understands the nature of global capital and the consequent commoditisation of scarce resources very well He also clearly understood the need to reinvent governance institutions to tame the distortion of resource markets Howeveras his own economic advisor Raghuram Rajan said UPA 2 has failed to come up with a new framework to enable equitable supply of scarce resourcescritical for a high-growth economy The same political-business elite that facilitated the entry of global capital after the 1991 reforms also ensured that supply was restricted so that extraordinary market values could be captured in the interim In some waysboth the NDA and UPA have been complicit in this India Against Corruption(IAC) may have many problems of its own But the BJP leaders response to the charges against Gadkari misses the point completely Saying there was nothing illegal in the Gadkari documents released by Kejriwal is
