Security Council likely to extend UNs Mission in Nepal – envoySecurity Council likely to extend UNs Mission in Nepal – envoy

26 October 2007The Security Council is likely to extend the mandate of the United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN), the head of the operation said today, one day after the 15-member body held closed consultations on the issue. The Security Council is likely to extend the mandate of the United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN), the head of the operation said today, one day after the 15-member body held closed consultations on the issue.Briefing reporters in New York, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative for Nepal, Ian Martin, said the Government and the leaders of the seven parties, including the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), have indicated their support for an extension of UNMIN.“Security Council members in discussion yesterday made very clear that they would give sympathetic consideration to a request from the Government if such a formal request is made,” he said.Mr. Martin also discussed key concerns expressed by the Secretary-General in his latest report on Nepal, which says the country is at a crossroads.Nepal’s Constituent Assembly election, scheduled for 22 November, was recently postponed to an as-yet undetermined date. Mr. Martin explained that the immediate cause was demands by the Maoists that Nepal’s Legislature – not the Constituent Assembly to be elected – immediately declare the country a Republic, and that the electoral system be fully proportional, both in contradiction of previous agreements. “Negotiations are continuing amongst political leaders to try to reach a compromise,” he said.“This crisis is not just the consequence of those two demands but also stems from growing mistrust amongst the parties to the peace agreement that we have seen in recent weeks,” he said, blaming failures on both sides to make good on commitments and agreements that have been made within in the peace process. The envoy noted that the current cantonment of Maoists and restriction of army to their barracks were intended to be temporary measures but these have now continued for some 11 months with no end in sight. “A prolonged stay in cantonments of thousands of mainly young people living under difficult conditions and lacking clarity about their future is not sustainable,” he said.“It also leaves UNMIN with no exit strategy from its arms monitoring role.”He emphasized the need to safeguard the Seven Party Alliance, which includes the Maoists, and its members’ common commitment to the peace process. That requires setting a date for Constituent Assembly election together with a roadmap for future steps, including addressing issues related to public security, he said.Mr. Martin repeated a call in the Secretary-General’s report for the parties to take stock of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and its implementation with a view to strengthening it. “When I met Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala just before I left Kathmandu, I was encouraged to be told that he intends that there should indeed be a review of implementation of agreements,” Mr. Martin said.“Expectations among Nepalis are high as to what UNMIN can do,” he said. “While I do my best to encourage the parties to keep the overall process on track and offer UNMIN’s advice as requested, we do feel constrained by an expectation that we should interpret our mandate narrowly and we ask ourselves – as concerned Member States ask us – whether Nepal is making full use of the supportive capacity of the United Nations.”He added that if the Government and the parties desired it, the UN could provide greater support in implementation of the peace process; assisting a discussion on the future of the country’s security sector, including a managed transition from the currently temporary cantonments and arms management to long-term solutions; and providing greater advisory support on promoting public security towards the Constituent Assembly election. read more

Letter Questions a COI cannot adequately deal withLetter Questions a COI cannot adequately deal with

Dear Editor,Many of us are of the opinion that The Commission of Inquiry (COI) into the alleged assassination plot to kill The President is fast turning out to be a comical affair. In addition to its ludicrous nature it is a multi-million dollar affair which will cost the taxpayers a huge sum. Guyana could ill afford this kind of wastage of public funds at this time.The episode began with some character mouthing a very serious charge of someone wanting to kill the sitting president of Guyana.  Now, a matter of this nature is a very, very, serious issue that should have been treated with utmost urgency.Rather, what resulted after that startling revelation was no arrests being made, no charges being instituted, only a big masquerade pageant of a ‘who shot John” standpipe soap opera.Further, things have petered out into a watered down hastily put together COI which would eventually amount to nothing. Commissions of Inquiry, can only make recommendations, they cannot prosecute. Institution of charges,  arrests and a thorough investigation are solely the work of a court of law.Are we to surmise that our Present President has no confidence in the judicial system? If that is the case we are in a sorry state of affairs.Be that as it may, let us take a deeper look at this assassination plot and the subsequent COI.At the start of this alleged “assassination plot” all the media houses carried the whistle-blower’s surname  as Sufrein, however, at the beginning of the COI  I am seeing in the local press another surname for this guy, one Adrift.  Are we to believe that this is a deceptive move on the part of the informant? Another question the authorities need to address.Further to our discussion why wasn’t both informant and accused not charged and placed before a court? Informant to present his evidence and accused to mount his defense? Neither of the real case scenario has surfaced?In another startling revelation, is the fact that the journalist who is central to this news release is a convicted felon who certainly has an Axe to grind with the police.No wonder why the lawyer for Travis Chase vehemently objected to the line of questioning from the experienced and most certified legal luminary on the COI Board. What was the motive for journalist as well as whistle-blower on this very serious issue? What did all parties hope to achieve? These are questions a COI cannot adequately deal with nor can they clear up from our minds.So, back to my argument, this whole affair of an alleged assassination plot is a mere shenanigan which reeks of  a hidden agenda. We can safely draw the conclusion that this alleged plot was meant to distract public attention from real, serious, issues of a flat footed government in a doomed economy. These are the things we should be concerned about not on this wastage of taxpayers’ money on an eddying circle of non issues that would lead to nowhere. I rest my case.Sincerely,Neil  Adams Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedAssassination Plot CoI will destroy morale of the Force – Opposition LeaderJuly 28, 2017In “Crime”Op-Ed: Another politicized CoIFebruary 10, 2018In “Opinion”Nandlall takes Williams to task over Rodney COI criticismJuly 3, 2014In “Politics” read more

Dont lecture Rome the way we did Athens warns EU chiefDont lecture Rome the way we did Athens warns EU chief

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker has told EU members to “show respect towards Italy” as its new government takes power and not repeat the mistakes the EU made with Greece.Juncker told German media at the weekend that the “dignity of the Greek people (was) trodden under foot” by the EU when Alexis Tsipras became Prime Minister in 2015.He warned that the lecturing of Greece by German-speaking countries had been unhelpful and was to be avoided as the new Italian coalition government headed by Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte settles into power.“That must not happen again in the present case with Italy,” he said. “I absolutely do not want to get involved in questions of domestic Italian politics.”Conte’s government has promised to scrap the austerity measures recommended by the EU, but Juncker said at the weekend that Italy had to deal with its problems and not seek blame with the EU. He said he was “not at all in favour of giving lessons to Rome” the way the EU had with  Athens.“I absolutely do not want to get involved in questions of domestic Italian politics,” he added.Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras referred to Italy last week when he was speaking at the 26th General Assembly of the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE) in Athens.“Europe must understand that insistence on austerity without a horizon of hope erodes the legitimacy of economic goals and leads to division within societies. When Democracy fails, it inevitably leads to dangerous albeit justified reactions from the people,” Tsipras said.last_img read more

first_imgNaviguer autrement sur le premier bateau-hôtel solaire Embarquer sur un bateau dont la navigation n’occasionne ni pollution, ni bruit, c’est désormais possible sur la rivière du Lot avec le seul bateau-hôtel solaire de France.Il existe désormais une alternative au tourisme fluvial industriel : un bateau fonctionnant uniquement à l’énergie solaire sans bruit ni odeur. Baptisée Kevin, du nom du fils disparu de la propriétaire, Dominique Renouf, l’embarcation mesure près de 30 mètres de long et se meut au moyen de 80 mètres carrés de panneaux solaires sur les eaux paisibles du Lot. Construit en 2006 sur ses propres plans, le sixième bateau de Dominique Renouf est le fruit de sa détermination, “personne n’y croyait, l’armateur en premier qui m’a pris pour une folle”, raconte-t-elle, citée par l’AFP.Elle explique également les avantages de son bateau solaire : “Moi, je voulais un bateau accessible à tous, à hauteur des berges sur un seul niveau contrairement aux péniches, et surtout qui ne fasse pas de bruit, ne sente pas le gasoil et ne pollue pas les rivières”.Le parcours de la promenade écologique s’étend sur 75 kilomètres de voies navigables du Lot, entre Aiguillon et Lustrac où l’écluse trop petite ne permet pas au bateau d’aller plus loin.Un retour à l’authenticitéÀ lire aussiÀ 13 ans, elle invente un moyen d’optimiser la production des panneaux solairesLa propriétaire du Kevin parle d’un renouement avec “l’authenticité de la navigation fluviale”, faisant référence au courant naturel et au vent qui permettait de faire avancer les navires. Aujourd’hui, c’est un pari réussi : le bateau-hôtel n’a besoin que de quatre moteurs de 10 kilowatts par heure et ne manque ni de lumière, ni d’eau chaude. De fait, pas de panache de fumée, seul un léger bourdonnement des moteurs électriques se mêle au clapotis de l’eau, rapporte l’AFP.Le mot de la fin est à Dominique Renouf qui cherche pour son nouveau projet -des bateaux de location sans permis de trois cabines pour deux personnes propulsés à l’énergie solaire- “des investisseurs pour créer le prototype et m’adresser aux loueurs qui vont renouveler leur flotte diesel car pour un tourisme vert en fluvial l’électrique-solaire est l’avenir”.Le 31 juillet 2011 à 09:34 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Switch box malfunction scrubbed space shuttle launchSwitch box malfunction scrubbed space shuttle launch

first_imgTechnicians and engineers at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida have identified the likely source of what caused heaters on a fuel line for space shuttle Endeavour’s auxiliary power unit-1 (APU-1) to fail on Friday, scrubbing the first launch attempt for the STS-134 mission. The failure appears to be a power problem within the aft load control assembly-2 (ALCA-2), a box of switches controlling power feeds.“That basically means the power is not getting out to the heaters that weren’t working on launch day,” said Space Shuttle Program Launch Integration Manager Mike Moses.The plan is to remove and replace the box, but that work and related testing will take several days to complete. Once the new box is installed, the team must verify it’s working properly — at least a two-day process — and perform forensics on the failed box.“We can tell you, pretty much, that it’s not going to be any earlier than (May 8),” Moses said. “We’re really not even setting the schedules today. There’s still a whole lot of short-term work that has to be done.”Endeavour’s six astronauts have returned to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston for a few days of additional training before they report to Kennedy for the next launch attempt, and the crew’s families also are going to return home today. The launch team is backing out of launch countdown operations.last_img read more

Traffic hit after Dunlop flyovers height bar crashesTraffic hit after Dunlop flyovers height bar crashes

first_imgKolkata: The height bar of Dunlop flyover collapsed early on Saturday morning after it was hit by a vehicle. The incident caused traffic congestion in the area for a few hours.According to Barrackpore police, the situation was brought under control in the afternoon. The “health condition” of the Dunlop flyover was under inspection that is being extensively carried out by various state government agencies. The Bengal government started the “health” check-up of the bridges after a portion of the Majerhat bridge caved in on September 4. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeAfter a thorough examination, the RITES had submitted a report saying that condition of bearings situated on the top of the pillars were not in good health and some repair works needed to be done. The report also added that in some places the bearings had been displaced. The busy flyover had been closed for all types of vehicles for the past one-and-half months, following the Majerhat incident. The height bar was constructed to restrict the movement of some vehicles and repair work was also on. It was later opened for smaller vehicles. According to the preliminary investigation, police suspect that a truck might have hit the height bar, eventually leading to its collapse. The truck was coming from Dakshineswar side, police said. There had been traffic congestion in the area since movement was restricted on the flyover. As a result, the vehicles coming from Dakshineswar were affected.last_img read more

Italian prosecutors say more than 4.5 billion euros ($4.9 billion) were smuggled to China in less than four years – nearly half of it with the help of the state – run Bank of China. Italy is now investigating four Bank of China employees and its Milan branch for allegedly laundering 2.2 billion euros, the proceeds of counterfeiting, labor exploitation and tax evasion, according to court documents obtained by the Associated Press.(AP Photo/Antonio Calanni) By ERIKA KINETZAssociated PressFLORENCE, Italy (AP) — Police in Florence wondered where all the money was going. Italy’s economy was heading off a cliff, but its Chinatowns were booming. Luxury cars snaked past Chinese betting parlors and garment factories that hummed into the night. Chinese immigrants were buying up Italian coffee bars and real estate. But their prosperity was not reflected in local tax records.“What do they do with the money?” said Pietro Suchan, then deputy public prosecutor in Florence. “Do they eat it?”The answer, after a four-year investigation by Italy’s financial police, was no. They discovered that more than 4.5 billion euros ($4.9 billion) — the proceeds of counterfeiting, prostitution, labor exploitation and tax evasion — had been smuggled out of Italy to China in less than four years using a money-transfer service. Nearly half that money was funneled through one of China’s largest state banks, the Bank of China, which earned more than 758,000 euros in commissions on the transfers, according to Italian investigative documents obtained by The Associated Press. Italian officials said that when they tried to appeal to Chinese authorities for help, they got nowhere. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall “Chinese financial institutions can effectively operate behind a firewall that keeps them largely immune from the jurisdiction of U.S. courts and regulatory agencies, leaving U.S. partners, competitors, and investors vulnerable,” said a May report from the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, which advises Congress.The consequences of that legal firewall are becoming more palpable as Chinese businesses go global. Chinese companies have invested $46 billion in the U.S. since 2000, most of it in the last five years, according to the Rhodium Group, a New York research firm. Chinese banks have expanded their reach, opening overseas branches and buying stakes in foreign banks. Chinese firms have voraciously tapped U.S. financial markets, with the 2014 IPO of e-commerce giant Alibaba ranked the largest in history.In the shadow of this rapid expansion, however, a quiet war is brewing over whose rules and regulations will apply. At issue is how much China will adhere to existing norms, forged largely by Western powers, and how much it will try to reshape them to conform to its own values and strategic priorities.For now, the lack of cooperation can effectively shield Chinese firms from overseas litigation, giving Western companies and consumers little legal recourse when something goes wrong. Igor Angelini, head of Europol’s financial intelligence group, said the money sent to China via Money2Money likely came from across Europe, especially France and Spain; both have large Chinese immigrant communities.“We could track physical movements of money across borders in Western Europe,” he said. “These agencies acted as a polar attraction for cash.”Police seized transaction records from the Money2Money centers and, with the help of two employees, said they untangled a web of fake names and family ties used to mask the identities of the people sending the money.Many of the more than 1.5 million transfers, which were fractioned into small sums to avoid triggering scrutiny, were a way for the Chinese immigrants to avoid paying Italian taxes, prosecutors said. Police documented dozens of small business owners — many of whom ran garment factories powered by under-paid immigrants working illegally — making remittances of hundreds of thousands of euros, despite declared earnings in the tens of thousands, or less, according to hundreds of pages of Italian court documents reviewed by AP.Others were caught with heaps of counterfeit purses, wallets, shoes and belts in their factories. Police also traced some of the money back to men caught running Chinese prostitution rings out of apartments around Italy. Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology The case is now stalled in Italian courts, as prosecutors try to notify nearly 300 hard-to-find defendants, most of them Chinese.Franco Roberti, Italy’s chief anti-mafia prosecutor, said the Bank of China — knowingly or not — played “an absolutely necessary role in the transfer of funds from Italy to China.” But, he added, “It’s difficult to have a rapport of international cooperation with China.” He said he believed things would improve due to a memorandum of judicial cooperation that China and Italy signed in September.Judicial cooperation has become a top priority for China’s Communist Party, which is ramping up efforts to repatriate corrupt officials who have fled overseas. China said last year’s effort to hunt absconders abroad, “Operation Fox Hunt,” netted hundreds of people, more than a third of them from Southeast Asia. In April, China launched a new initiative, “Skynet,” to trace fugitives and their overseas money, and released a list of its 100 most wanted economic criminals. Forty of them are thought to be in the United States, according to the party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility “We may see some changes coming from China because of the internationalization of the Chinese economy,” said Douglas Clark, an intellectual property lawyer in Hong Kong. “China now needs the assistance of foreign countries. To get that, they’re going to have to offer assistance themselves.”___THE GOVERNMENT CONNECTIONOne of the companies in China that received illicit payments via Money2Money was an import-export agent called Wenzhou Cereals Oils and Foodstuffs Foreign Trade Corporation, according to Italian court documents obtained by AP.Those documents place the company in Shanghai, but no company by that name exists there. Corporate records show a company by that name in Wenzhou, a city 465 kilometers (290 miles) south of Shanghai. Most Chinese migrants to Italy come from that area.Wenzhou Foreign Trade was a state-run company until 2012, and is still owned by an investment group controlled by the city government according to Chinese regulatory filings.Italy’s financial police traced payments of 3 million euros to Wenzhou Foreign Trade via Money2Money in 2007. The cash was sent in small increments under 180 different names, but Italian tax authorities had no record of 178 of those people, according to court documents. Once the money left Italy, it vanished behind China’s great legal firewall.Italian police had no way to track the flow of dirty money in China and no way to get the cash back to Italy’s depleted state coffers. The Bank of China, which is now under investigation in Italy for money laundering, denied wrongdoing, saying it has always complied with Italian regulations.A great legal firewall separates China from the West, despite the deep economic ties — both licit and illicit — that bind them. A combination of inconsistent cooperation, incompatible legal systems and China’s secrecy laws have allowed criminals to globalize more effectively than law enforcement — and made it harder for Western companies and courts to put them out of business.The legal firewall has also helped people who sell counterfeit goods use major, state-run Chinese banks as financial shelters on a significant scale, AP found in an article published in May. Counterfeiters have used the banks, including the Bank of China, to process credit card payments and move their money beyond the reach of U.S. law enforcement. But Western companies that have pursued Chinese counterfeiters in the U.S., where many counterfeit goods are sold, have been blocked by China’s secrecy laws, which prohibit banks from freezing funds or releasing information on the order of a foreign court. The banks say they are caught in a jurisdictional dispute between the U.S. and China, which maintains that bank secrecy is a matter of national sovereignty. “It makes it quite uneven in terms of the playing field between the parties,” said Otto Lee, a Silicon Valley lawyer who is working with a U.S.-based company that won a trade secret theft case against a Chinese company but can’t collect the judgment. “It gives the Chinese entity an unfair advantage.”In Italy, the firewall has given rise to a sizeable black economy in the Chinese immigrant community and prevented police from understanding the global scope of the criminal networks operating on their turf.While the Italians were shut out of China, The AP was able to track some of the missing money to a Chinese foreign trade company that has been accused of repeatedly shipping counterfeit goods.The company, a large import-export firm called the Wenzhou Cereals Oils and Foodstuffs Foreign Trade Corporation, sent tens of thousands of fake Converse sneakers to the United States and Croatia, according to a separate lawsuit filed in the U.S., court documents show.The company’s ultimate owner, according to Chinese regulatory filings? An investment group controlled by the Wenzhou city government.___A ONE-SIDED INVESTIGATIONMoney2Money, the network of money transfer centers prosecutors say was responsible for funneling the 4.5 billion euros to China, was part-owned by a Chinese family that had immigrated to Italy. 0 Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Men’s health affects baby’s health too Top Stories Using evidence culled from seized Money2Money computers, police identified the names of individuals and companies in China that received the illicit funds.That’s where the investigative trail stopped.Suchan, the prosecutor who oversaw the investigation, said he believes much of the money laundered through Money2Money was used to buy counterfeit goods in China, which were then smuggled back to Europe. But he can’t prove it.“We did not have the possibility, despite many attempts made, to have an official contact with the judicial authorities and police of China,” he said. “We have discovered 50 percent of the truth.”Those attempts included reaching out to the Chinese Consulate in Florence and a liaison police officer stationed in the Italian Embassy in Beijing, he said.China’s foreign ministry said in a faxed response to questions that the relevant authorities had no knowledge of the Italian case.“China is always committed to deepening law enforcement cooperation with other countries, jointly cracking down on transnational crimes and punishing criminals,” the ministry wrote. Suggestions to the contrary, they said, “are not objective and just.” In April of that year, a Chinese man living in Rome was accused of selling counterfeit goods sent by the Wenzhou company. Four days after police raided his shop, he sent 12,499.99 euros to Wenzhou Foreign Trade — three and a half times his reported annual income — via Money2Money.Last October, Converse Inc. sued Wenzhou Foreign Trade in a federal court in New York, saying it had shipped 8,160 pairs of sneakers to the U.S., including an unspecified number of fakes. Croatian customs also seized 24,720 pairs of fake Converse exported by the company in 2013, according to U.S. court documents. Converse declined to comment on details of the case.Cut off from the rest of China by rugged mountains and the sea, Wenzhou is famous for its entrepreneurs. Its residents pioneered a model of low-cost, small-scale manufacturing that flourished as China embraced market reforms in the late 1970s. Wenzhou Foreign Trade, founded in 1979, helped those entrepreneurs reach global markets. By 2009, it had become the largest foreign trade company in Wenzhou city, according to its website.The company’s offices sit near the top of the Wenzhou International Trade Centre, a weather-beaten skyscraper on a busy road downtown. It deals in a dizzying array of products, including glasses, shoes, clothes, hardware and machinery, auto parts, food and medical equipment. The company says it has been cleared for expedited customs processing in China, received top credit rankings from the Bank of China and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, and is registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — In a story June 5 about an Italian investigation into money laundering, The Associated Press reported erroneously one entity that officials said they tried to contact. The lead Italian investigator said officials reached out to the Chinese Consulate in Florence, not the Chinese Embassy.A corrected version of the story is below:Money laundering investigation stymied by China, Italy saysItaly: China stymied money laundering probe; Chinese bank’s commissions under investigation The FDA declined to disclose whether Wenzhou Foreign Trade has a registered food facility, but said registration does not imply endorsement.Cai Jiliu, Wenzhou Foreign Trade’s general manager, declined to comment on the Italian case, saying he didn’t work at the company at the time. He said the fake Converse exports were the result of “management negligence.”“I feel we have been used,” he said in a telephone interview. “Our clients are smaller companies. They have a weaker awareness of intellectual property rights, and our staff did not totally obey our company’s rules.”Six other defendants reached settlements with Converse. Wenzhou Foreign Trade did not. There is no evidence in court documents that the company even sent a lawyer to represent it in New York.“China and America have different cultural backgrounds,” Cai said. “Chinese prefer communication to lawsuits.”__Associated Press photographer Mark Schiefelbein contributed to this report from Wenzhou.

Prosecutors say the bank facilitated the secret transfer of 2.2 billion euros collected by Money2Money to people and companies in China, according to previously undisclosed Italian investigative documents obtained by AP.The bank had an exclusive contract with Money2Money, stipulating that it would not deal with any other money transfer network in Italy, Suchan said.The bank said in an email that it had “no clues of the alleged criminal activities underlying the transfers of money” and that the agreement with the Money2Money network was “totally in line with the policy of Bank of China.” Lawyers for Money2Money said their clients have not had a fair chance to defend themselves and are not guilty.

Protesters say Nkurunziza must go because the constitution limits the president to two terms, but the president’s supporters say he is eligible for a third term because he was chosen by lawmakers — and not popularly elected — for his first term.Zeid said by videoconference from Geneva that the president’s decision “has undermined a decade of steady progress in building democratic institutions.”He cited reports of demonstrators opposing a third term being imprisoned and subjected to torture and ill-treatment, as well as extrajudicial killings.

Gary Kirsten stayed in the background; Duncan Fletcher largely confined himself to the players’ techniques; and Ravi Shastri behaved as one of the boys (Source: AP) Related News In his resignation letter to the Committee of Administrators chairman Vinod Rai the author Ramachandra Guha cited the Anil Kumble contract episode as one of the reasons behind his decision to step down from the body appointed by the Supreme Court to manage Indian cricket “…Surely giving senior players the impression that they may have a veto power over the coach is another example of superstar culture gone berserk” wrote Guha “Such a veto power is not permitted to any other top level professional team in any other sport in any other country” Indeed in modern team sport players are usually more dispensable than coaches Even those that are considered superstars Alex Ferguson literally ‘booting’ David Beckham out of Manchester United in 2003 remains an extreme example but in a locker room bust-up between a player and a coach you know who will end up having a bloodied nose Cricket however has historically been different And Indian cricket has been a different ball game altogether A kind of unsaid rule was laid with the exit of Greg Chappell in 2007 that the coach of the Indian team — more so if he were a foreigner – would be placed a rung below the players certainly beneath the captain in the order of preference Gary Kirsten stayed in the background; Duncan Fletcher largely confined himself to the players’ techniques and Ravi Shastri behaved as one of the boys And the players loved them Then nine years after the bitter break-up with Chappell India got another high-profile personality — a bonafide legend of the game — as their coach We thought Kumble was Indian hence the outcome would be different — it certainly was in terms of results — but the personalities eventually clashed and it was Kumble who had to move out of the house He lasted one year less than Chappell did It lays down another unsaid rule for now That even if you are an Indian legend you will have to as a coach bow down to the captain and players Micromanagement Giving veto powers to the captain and players over coaches sits at odds with the direction cricket is moving in The sport is becoming more dynamic by the day For a team to be consistently successful which India aspires to be its various aspects need to be constantly micromanaged The role of coach is not only to sit down with captain and formulate strategies for a given match or stand at the nets and give advice on techniques Its scope far exceeds that It includes identifying and assembling a pool of match-ready fringe players — as Kumble did during the home season working alongside Rahul Dravid It involves creating a strong chain of command in which if one piece falls out another steps in to take his place seamlessly — as Ajinkya Rahane did in Dharamshala standing in for the injured Kohli It requires taking a stand and telling the captain if need be that he is wrong — as Kohli was about Cheteshwar Pujara’s strike-rate The job basically requires vision something which can’t be demanded of the captain who has his own performance to take care of and who also needs to switch off at times The captain therefore should be the coach’s man on the field — and not vice versa Cricket has been slow to catch up with other team sports but it’s gradually evolving The captain/superstar player might have won this round but it’s the coach that will come out on top eventually While interviewing Gary Kirsten last year this reporter slipped in a shallow question Who was important in T20s the most modern of cricket’s formats a captain orcoach The question touched a raw nerve with Kirsten His reply was long and instructive And it was not T20 specific “One’s got to be careful of that language” cautioned Kirsten who has come to be considered the most hands-off and players-first coach that India has ever had “You know it’s a very dangerous language in the world of modern sport The coach has a critical role to play in cricket Critical Across all formats You know the days of the old order where we just went on the field and played and you played 15 games a year as opposed to the new order where you play across three formats and virtually the whole year you’ve got to manage a squad of people The man management role alone is a massive task And it’s not just cricket You take baseball they play 180 games in a season They have got a roster of 50 players Some of those big baseball franchises have mental conditioning departments with eight people So to say that the game is run by the players is ridiculous “The coaches play a critical role in setting up a system Yes a captain walks on the field and goes on to make decisions under pressure and that’s his role In a professional environment where there are role definition spaces that is his role But to say the captain is more important than a coach in a professional outfit is outrageous thinking There is so much to do as a coach…I don’t think coaches get enough credit for the work they do” Indian cricket has once again endorsed that captain is more important than a coach It remains to be seen as Kirsten says if this is “outrageous thinking” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIn today’s
