For all the latest Pune News, During her visit to Pakistan last month, peace, Nitish justified his decision to sever ties with the BJP at a press conference immediately after resigning, The cataclysmic election result he said is essentially because of majoritarian polarisation Nitish made it clear that the split from the NDA was not tactical but “ideological” His prediction of how things would unfold has come true Nitish’s resignation has also taken the wind out of the sails of his detractors and will bring back a moral agenda into politics and governance — almost non-existent till now When Nitish assumed office in 2005 he wove a “coalition of extremes” to ensure multi-caste/ class support for his governance With the break-up of the NDA in Bihar this coalition collapsed Thereafter Nitish worked out a counter coalition — an agglomeration of non-powerful social groups But this did not work On the other hand the NDA devised an alternative coalition of extremes by bringing Ram Vilas Paswan and Upendra Kushwaha into its fold But an alliance between Nitish and Lalu could result in a new coalition of upper backward articulate castes and other non-powerful social categories which would be electorally formidable Earlier in order to maintain the coalition of extremes Nitish had avoided taking up class issues particularly land reform However this assiduously built coalition was strained when during his first term he introduced positive discrimination for lower backwards and women in panchayati raj institutions (PRIs) With the social justice movement reaching a decisive stage during the previous regime itself this new reservation further weakened the hegemony of the traditional elite Positive discrimination in PRIs was Nitish’s first substantive policy decision that altered his government’s class-caste neutrality It was the fear of Lalu’s resurgence that muted the traditional elites’ resentment of this change But when its consequences became clear during his second term the traditional elite started distancing itself from Nitish The emergence of women’s constituencies in PRIs was a further “encroachment” into lower power centres The separation between the JD(U) and the BJP only formalised what was already a grassroots political reality Nitish had tried to break lower centres of power from above without a grassroots movement Earlier the upper sections of society had dominated all three wings of state — legislature executive and judiciary In the legislature this hegemony had been broken since the Nineties Thereafter in order to further the social justice agenda the new legislatures had to restructure the civil and judicial services making space for the subaltern While the Mungeri Lal and Mandal commissions were meant to address this problem their short-run impact has been limited Thus in Bihar the goal of making space for the subaltern was sought to be achieved by strategically placing functionaries belonging to weaker social groups Later this strategy was abandoned by Nitish in the name of strengthening the state structure This sent out a wrong message — that the social justice agenda was not receiving attention The social composition of the upper sections of the civil and judicial services matters most People are always eager to know who the chief secretary or director general of police is Their importance might be misplaced but who occupies these posts defines the image of the service and the political inclination In this respect Bihar had a dismal record After assuming office in 2005 Nitish made serious efforts to re-establish the authority of the state almost non-existent then For example the rate of convictions has been very high in Bihar in recent years Between January 2006 and June 2013 no less than 83000 criminals have been convicted — the highest in the country But there was a discrepancy between the social profile of the offenders in general and those who were convicted The former comprised people from nearly all sections of society In contrast the latter were mostly from the middle and lower sections This is because of the social character of the judiciary and bureaucracy dominated by the upper echelons of society Consider for example the ease with which perpetrators of rural massacres — mostly belonging to the traditional elite — manage to get exonerated Such cherry picking in law enforcement negates Nitish’s social justice agenda The BJP’s success in the elections in Bihar could be attributed at least in part to this Nitish’s resignation will have catalytic consequences in the state It seems that all political forces pursuing the agenda of social justice that were earlier fragmented will once again unite Lalu is also open to supporting the JD(U) This will completely change Bihar’s political and social configuration The new discourse that will unfold here will resonate in the Hindi heartland A coalition of the political forces pursuing the social justice agenda could mean that class-specific issues could be taken up without fear of backlash A new script of electoral politics could be written [email protected] For all

Chess Olympiad at Baku Azerbaijan India won by the thinnest 25 – 15 point margin holding the draw in other three boards With three more rounds to go this victory puts India in the striking distance of a podium finish as they share the lead with USA and Ukraine with 14 match points trailed by Russia Azerbaijan and Norway with 13 match points The Indian women too scored an identical 25 – 15 comeback against the twenty second seeded Uzbekistan and now figure in a tie from fifth to twelfth places India facing England with Harikrishna (Left Extreme) and Baskaran Adhiban pitted against Michael Adams (Rigth extreme) and David Howell Image Credit: David Llada/Firstpost Once again Harikrishna faced a heavyweight on the top board the experienced English Grandmaster Michael Adams known for his solid strategical brand of chess Expectedly he refused to enter a theoretical duel against Harikrishna’s Sicilian defence preferring the offbeat Rossolimo variation instead Adams unexpectedly changed the script of the game to come up with a very interesting exchange sacrifice on the 13th move thus showing his willingness to take risks even in such a crucial game Though ahead by material Hari had to defend patiently and sacrificed back a piece himself thus reaching a draw-ish ending where he had two rooks against Adams’ rook and two minor pieces neither side having any winning chance Adhiban’s handling of the opening emphasised the progress of technology in chess preparation in parallel to the increasing analytical ability of the computers Modern masters not only study tournament games of their pet openings but from Email chess (though it is still referred as Correspondence chess) and even those between computer programs as well Thus Adhiban’s ’10Bg5′ was a new move for over the board chess but already employed in correspondence chess He deserved the resultant advantage he received from the game both in clock and position as David Howell consumed large amounts of time with a pawn deficit by the sixteenth move However Adhiban’s imprecise handling of the late middlegame ensured that the game was never going to be more than a draw After a streak of fivewins in the initial rounds and then indifferent play in the last two rounds Vidit Gujrathi’s play was probably under the scanner He too came up with a plan played in correspondence chess with ’14.Re8′ from the Black side of an English Opening Risky play by Gawain Jones with an exchange sacrifice on the 18th move ensured White a dangerous looking initiative Vidit kept his cool and defended accurately to restore parity in the endgame So even though the first three boards had early promise precise defence ensured that the advantageous sides could never convert But it was a different script on the fourth board in a topsy-turvy game between Sethuraman and Short Nigel Short is a living legend who challenged Kasparov for the title of world champion way back in 1993 precisely the year when his opponent was born Even at the age of 51 he shows amazing longevity being a consistent tournament winner producing lively chess He was one of the architects of England’s giant-killing act against formidable China in the previous round defeating much higher rated Li Chao in a wild game Playing against such a colourful and formidable opponent Sethuraman rose to the occasion to score a memorable victory Employing the Scotch Opening with the White pieces Sethu enjoyed a healthy advantage from the early stages of the game Sacrificing a pawn Short tried his best to mount an attack against White’s King Though far from perfect both played fearless chess at many moments preferring challenging and adventurous continuations rather than sedate and best moves Finally Sethuraman’s ’31f5′ seemed to open up Black’s kingside and crack Short’s tenacity as he played substandard moves and resigned on the forty first move when Sethu was en route to checkmate the Black king For this gutsy comeback Sethuraman was showered with compliments from his opponent from the previous round the American GM Sam Shankland who was lucky to win against the Indian: “What truly makes a champion is not their weakest moments but how they respond to their weakest moments Sethu.came through with a beautiful win today over a former world championship challenger Many strtong players would have self-destructed here and this kind of psychological toughness is a sign that he has a very bright future ahead of him” The most crucial moment of the decisive game between Sethuraman and Nigel Short In a tense position Sethu’s 31f5 which
