forward. It seems a match made somewhere in India’s cricketing paradise though one wonders why Kumble was handed just an year’s term which most often is too less for a coach to deliver tangible results Team is higher than individuals: Anil Kumble to RaviShastri But there are other wider concerns like how Kumble adjusts to the changed dynamics of the dressing room In sport and especially in the context of Indian cricket eight years is a long time The present generation of cricketers — barring a few who are cut of the old cloth — are different in their priorities and perspectives in attitude and ambition How Kumble strikes a balance between his own perceptions and theirs will hold the key to his success as coach It helps that Kumble is not an incendiary presence It would also be interesting to see how he embraces Virat Kohli’s philosophy of unbridled aggression For Kumble was always a moderate not a hardliner There is yet another note of caution: He is no magician who will deliver instant results and mould the team into an all-conquering condition-proof side in a twinkle He himself hadn’t tasted much success in the team and as an individual player overseas until late into his career The expectations from him should be moderated by a touch of pragmatism and most crucially patience For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsSingapore: Singapore

soften the lines drawn by nation-states The glue for reconnection will be culture Pakistan is clearly falling back on culture to bring down the ideological temperature that the state has been enduring since the rise of the Taliban after September 2001 The PPP government in the southern province of Sindh has staged in January-February an elaborate celebration of Sindhi pluralism to temper the schisms in Karachi No sooner had it concluded that the Oxford University Press inaugurated its literary festival inviting internationally known creative personalities This was followed by Razi Ahmed’s Lahore Literary Festival (LLF) founded by him in 2012 As an ideological state that “separated” from India Pakistan has had problems with Pakistani culture These problems were not fully articulated in the first 30 years but beginning with the Zia-ul-Haq era after 1980 culture under Islam became the subject of debate After 1947 the state moved instinctively to emphasise “separateness” from India because it sensed that New Delhi had not accepted Partition and expected Pakistan to “relapse” into status quo ante Culture was co-extensive with India and not emphasised too much because it brought out commonalities with a region Pakistan had abandoned After 1980 religious opposition to culture was boldly expressed because the “shariah” was seen as overriding mysticism which formed the matrix of culture in Pakistan’s plural society In 2014 the war has been internalised History tells us that war destroys the way people live People are allowed to live a normal life when there is peace An optimist will say highlight culture to end war Culture diffuses identities inclined to violence to safeguard their boundaries It is also a spiritually balancing factor in society because it is 90 per cent entertainment and serves as a safety valve By excludingthe common man the state takes risks it cannot even calculate But alas that is what has been happening in the past in Pakistan a process that has produced the phenomenon of the Taliban The Taliban claims Pakistan as its moral domain As the LLF regaled the city with artists and writers from India Pakistan and the West the Taliban destroyed a cinema in Peshawar in the northern province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa But the thousands of young men and women who attended the festival over three days clapped and shouted their support to theses of togetherness presented by the genius of South Asia not always echoing the ideology of the state India contributed most to this effort to oppose war with culture Pran Nevile was there from New Delhi an “unassimilated” Indian whose writings arouse the nostalgia of pre-1947 Lahore Vishwajyoti Ghosh “curator” of the book This Side That Side: Restorying Partition an anthology of graphic narratives from India Pakistan and Bangladesh enriched the dialogue aimed at challenging the national narratives that produce conflict Yashodhara Dalmia art historian author of a new book on Amrita Sher-Gil Lahore’s Lost Daughter shared her insights with Pran Nevile and Salima Hashmi the daughter of Pakistan’s great Urdu poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz who teaches at Beaconhouse University in Lahore Two Indian personalities took the Lahoris of LLF by storm not with their flamboyance but with their humility and depth of articulation: filmmaker Mira Nair talking to Mira Hashmi and columnist Shobhaa De answering questions to Shehrbano Taseer the daughter of the Punjab governor who was killed by a religious fanatic in 2011 A local reporter who expected a different sort of spectacle was overwhelmed by the self-effacement of these great Indian women Nair’s brother Vikram in another discussion aroused laughter with his funny commentary on Indian cuisine For once India was non-threatening and very much “like us” Two Bengali literary men especially enthralled the Lahoris Anachronistically brilliant versifier of the long poem (after Nabokov) and novelist Vikram Seth whose double-decker A Suitable Boy is found in Pakistani homes —- a kind of elevated version of the familiar Urdu classics of AR Khatoon — spoke frankly about his works Amit Chaudhuri took part in a debate with Pakistani nuclear physicist and educationist Pervez Hoodbhoy on how states invent national narratives and pump the national curriculum with persuasions of war Tagore was the peg in this discussion who presciently opposed nationalism in 1916 as a Western disease Two Indians educationist Mushirul Hasan and curriculum critic Krishna Kumar were sorely missed Intizar Husain with Asif Farrukhi led the most sensitive discussion about whether Indian movies were a “cultural invasion” of Pakistan and kept the full house of audience spellbound Pakistani creative writers Kamila Shamsie the gifted niece of the most erudite of Pakistani generals Yaqub Khan led many discussions on short-story writing Rebel poet Fahmida Riaz narrated how after narrowly escaping prison under General Zia’s rule she crossed the border and lived seven years in India the fruit of which was her recent triptych of novellas Hum Log Historian Ayesha Jalal probed Iranian academic Vali Nasr with questions about his stint with the US State Department — from which he came out critical of the operation of its “Af-Pak” policies — and Senator Aitzaz Ahsan politician and author of the book The Indus Saga discussed the “Punjabi Man” with insights new to the largest nationality in Pakistan Nasr was the toast of the festival: he interacted with author Ahmed Rashid ex-ambassador Maleeha Lodhi and ex-foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar who took everyone’s breath away by asserting that the biggest threat to Pakistan’s existence were the non-state actors created by the state itself to fight its proxy wars Zia Mohyeddin has become the central emblem of culture defying the Talibanisation of Pakistan He kept his familiarly bursting-at-the-seams house of audience in stitches reading Mushtaq Yusufi the greatest living humour-writer in Urdu He sat down with poet Zehra Nigah to talk about himself and his craft of speaking insisting that Urdu as a language simply collapsed after the intrusion of English words allowed by most politicians Well-spoken Mohsin Hamid Mohammed Hanif and Kamila Shamsie have led the movement of writing in English by globalising the Pakistani sensibility More and more Pakistani boys and girls pushed by the job market if not the state have developed writing skills not known in the past A recent anthology of short stories I’ll Find My Way edited by Maniza Naqvi was culled from writers who responded to prompting questions Naqvi reveals: “This year OUP provided our themes for the short stories The first theme ‘The Meaning of Me’ found 106 responses; the second ‘The Bravest Place on Earth’ brought in 74 short stories; the third ‘Because This is What Matters’ brought in 169 stories; and the fourth ‘Paved and Unpaved Ways’ had us reading another 84 short stories By August 2013 we were delighted to have received a total of 433 stories written in English” Like many other places South Asia needs regionalisation to soften the natiaon-state’s tendency to create hostile identities and the glue for this reconnection will be culture which is the antithesis of war Perhaps globalisation by happening first has made the process of this osmosis easier The intellectual leavening for this will come not from those who write political tracts but those who write about the irreducible human being living ignored in this subcontinent The writer is consulting editor ‘Newsweek Pakistan’

others of rights violations must introspect as it censured Pakistan for the first time at the UNGA for perpetrating the "worst form of state oppression" in Balochistan Taking a veiled dig at Pakistan External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in her address at the 71st UN General Assembly (UNGA) session said there are nations "in our midst" where UN designated terrorists roam freely and deliver "their poisonous sermons of hate with impunity" an apparent reference to Mumbai attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed She also made a strong pitch for isolating such nations who speak the language of terrorism and for whom sheltering terrorists has become "their calling card" Sushma Swaraj Minister of External Affairs for India speaks during the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York PTI "In our midst there are nations that still speak the language of terrorism that nurture it peddle it and export it To shelter terrorists has become their calling card We must identify these nations and hold them to account" Swaraj asserted in her nearly 20-minute speech in Hindi "These nations in which UN designated terrorists roam freely lead processions and deliver their poisonous sermons of hate with impunity are as culpable as the very terrorists they harbour Such countries should have no place in the comity of nations" Swaraj said in essence making a call to the international community to isolate such nations In a strong rebuttal of the "baseless allegations" made by Sharif from the podium of the General Assembly about human rights violations by India in Kashmir Swaraj said "I can only say that those accusing others of human rights violations would do well to introspect and see what egregious abuses they are perpetrating in their own country including in Balochistan The brutality against the Baloch people represents the worst form of state oppression" Countering Pakistan’s claims that India has imposed pre-conditions on talks Swaraj said India got the terror attacks of Pathankot and Uri "in return" for taking the initiative to resolve issues with Islamabad not on the basis of conditions but on friendship She told Pakistan to "abandon this dream" of obtaining Kashmir asserting that Jammu and Kashmir is an "integral part of India and will always remain so" "It (Pakistan) persists in the belief that such attacks will enable it to obtain the territory it covets" Swaraj said adding that their plans will not succeed Swaraj forcefully rejected Sharif’s remarks in his General Assembly address last week that India has placed "pre-conditions" for talks which are not acceptable to him "What pre-conditions Did we impose any pre-condition before extending an invitation for the oath-taking ceremony of our Government" Swaraj said referring to the unprecedented move by Modi to invite heads of the governments from the South Asian neighborhood including Sharif for his oath-taking ceremony in May 2014 "Did we impose any pre-condition when I went to Islamabad for the Heart of Asia conference and agreed to begin the Comprehensive Bilateral Dialogue Did we impose any pre-condition when Prime Minister Modi travelled from
