It defies easy categorisation and temptations to straitjacket it should be resisted" India’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Tanmaya Lal said at a high level committee South-South Cooperation on Tuesday South-south cooperation is vastly different from the North-South aid that has a distinct context of historical obligations and where one set of partners is far better placed to assist he said UN logo Reuters "Excessive emphasis on South-South Cooperation as the principal new component of a redefined Global Partnership is misplaced In fact it is the North-South cooperation that needs scaling up to serve the new Agenda" Lal said Lal stressed that overemphasising the necessity of harmonising standards between South-South and North-South cooperation is equally misplaced running the risk of diluting the richness and diversity of South-South Cooperation He said the 2030 agenda sees the developing countries as active agents of change and not merely as passive recipients of assistance The agenda applies equally to the North or the developed nations enjoining them to also take concrete and measurable actions to attain sustainable development Lal also termed as "ironical" that while South-South Cooperation is being discussed at the UN discussions on North-South aid continue to be a monopoly of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development defying the "spirit of universality of the new development Agenda" He said that India has long held that UN should provide more substantive support to South-South Cooperation "We remain hopeful that through the UN Office for South-South Cooperation the institutional support of the United Nations will also increase commensurate with the importance and scale of South-South Cooperation" Lal said Chronic poverty proliferation of conflicts from geopolitical struggle for power humanitarian crises – many of them man-made and leading to large scale movements of people reflect that there has not been enough of cooperation among nations he said Lal referred to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s comments on the core ideals of South-South Cooperation when the Indian leader had said that south-south cooperation is a partnership beyond "strategic concerns and economic benefits" but is formed from the "emotional bonds we share and the solidarity we feel for each other" By: Express News Service |

Minister Satyendar Jain Wednesday ordered a probe into allegations that some Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) officials have been depositing large amounts of demonetised currency as bus fare in banks Jain ordered the chairman-cum-managing director of the DTC to conduct a detailed inquiry It is alleged that some officers in the DTC have been exchanging their own Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes against smaller value notes collected from passengers as fare before making the bank deposits “A probe is being conducted by the vigilance department of the DTC across all depots” a DTC official said on condition of anonymity Sources said some depot managers are being questioned and could be suspended Jain in his order asked the CMD to initiate “a detailed inquiry… into the matter and initiate criminal/departmental action as deemed fit against such delinquent officers/officials” A senior DTC official said “Fare from the two shifts is collected at the end of the day in each depot and deposited the following day in Syndicate bank outlets in each depot It was found over the last week that lots of the money deposited in the bank outlets was in old notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denominations which drew suspicion because passengers usually pay amounts as small as Rs 5 and Rs 10 for bus tickets” “It was suspected that some officials were clearing their personal stash of black money by replacing small denomination currency with their demonetised currency at the end of each day All 43 depots earn around Rs 4 crore each day” the official said “A complaint has been received that some officials in the DTC are interchanging the demonetised notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 against the smaller denominations notes collected from the passengers as fare by the DTC and depositing the same with the banks” Jain wrote in his order He also mentioned that he had informed the DTC about the probe three days ago over the phone Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay had written to L-G Najeeb

Chelimo who was born in Kenya but lives in Oregon finished second in the men’s 5000-meter race Saturday behind Mo Farah Now a US Army specialist Chelimo celebrated with the flag wrapped around his shoulders and soaked up the cheers from the crowd But while he was speaking to the media he found out he had been disqualified from the race and wouldn’t get his prize Apparently he heard from a television reporter he stepped off the track during a tussle with some of the other runners “I thought it was a joke I thought he was joking” Chelimo said “Now I’m really happy I got reinstated It’s the best feeling ever It’s the best best feeling ever” Besides Chelimo Mohammed Ahmed of Canada and Muktar Edris of Ethiopia were also disqualified Ahmed too was later reinstated putting him back in fourth place Edris remained disqualified but Ethiopian teammate Hagos Gebrhiwet ended up with bronze after being briefly upgraded to silver When it came time for the medal ceremony Chelimo hopped up to the second step on the podium and received his silver medal But he’s still not completely sure what happened in the first place “They said it was just pushing” said Chelimo “I couldn’t wrap it in my mind Going back in history I couldn’t see a 5K of people getting DQ’d “It was really tactical and they (the Ethiopians) kept pushing me because they were working as a team It’s never easy to run a race and run against a team … But the Army has taught me to be mentally and physically tough” The decision to disqualify Chelimo and Ahmed was _ at least briefly _ good news for Bernard Lagat The 41-year-old American was moved up to bronze which would have made him the oldest Olympic medalist in a running event if it had lasted But from the moment he learned of the decision Lagat was preparing himself for a reversal “If they tell me `Hey man we gave it to you by accident’ I’m going to (give) it back” Lagat said “No problem” Sadly for Lagat he never even got it For all the latest Sports News

Olympics would be a fantastic forum to expand the game of cricket “For them in cricket terms it’s interesting to see rugby’s journey into the Olympic and why that’s an interesting proposition for cricket” said Gosper “If cricket has similar ambitions to rugby which is to take its footprint out of its traditional comfort zone then there’s nothing better than the Olympics to allow you to do that Not just at the time of the Olympics but in the whole qualification development the fact you’re on school curricula the fact you get more money into those countries that normally probably wouldn’t be

Kedar with Nandan Thakur (third from left) and other close friends in Pune Top News THE TARGET is massive The required run rate is soaring And his team has just lost two key wickets As Kedar Jadhav joins his captain the game already seems like a lost cause Not much is expected of him He’s yet to make a name at this level after all No we’re not at the Maharashtra Cricket Stadium (MCA) Stadium in Gahunje We’re instead in a town called Nagar in Ahmednagar District The year is 1997 and Jadhav’s team Rainbow Cricket Club is playing the final of a high-profile tennis-ball cricket tournament carrying a cash prize of Rs 51000 The opposition has racked up a total of 100 in their quota of eight overs In pursuit Rainbow CC have lost their openers in the very first over They need to get over 90 in 42 balls when a 12-year-old Jadhav walks up to his captain Nandan Thakur in the middle and says “I think I can handle this” The floodlights are burning brightly and about a thousand spectators are lining the boundary rope Thakur is stunned by the diminutive kid’s confidence But as he recalls now Jadhav would leave everyone at the ground spellbound ALSO READ |Kedar Jadhav: A Salman fan with penchant for sunglasses clothes and belts Thakur was in the stands at the MCA Stadium on Sunday And he couldn’t help but feel a sense of deja vu He’d seen Jadhav pull off remarkable feats with the bat on many occasions from the time the two joined forces in Pune’s highly competitive tennis-ball circuit two decades ago This was however his first ODI at home and India were 63/4 in pursuit of 351 But as he saw Jadhav go about orchestrating his breathtaking assault on the English bowlers Thakur suddenly reveals having had numerous flashbacks It wasn’t just in the way he was leaving the English bowlers dumbfounded Even some of his shots seemed all too reminiscent The only difference being it was Virat Kohli and not he who was enjoying the knock from the other end “When you play tennis-ball cricket your reflexes become extremely well trained You never can be sure of how much a ball will bounce So you have to adjust at the last moment That’s why you’ll see Kedar play the cut and the pull so effectively The grounds are odd-shaped and the fielders are always surrounding you on the off-side which makes the inside-out shot the only option” says Thakur The ultimate hit machine For most and this includes a majority of those who watched him score the fifth-fastest ODI century by an Indian what Jadhav produced on Sunday left them wondering “where has he been so long” But as far as Thakur is concerned it was a knock he’d come to expect from his old friend For that’s what Jadhav was renowned for in the cut-throat business of tennis-ball cricket He was the ultimate hit-man one you could bank on to win matches“He would disappear for a day win matches win prize money and come back home To play two or three games a day and win them for fun teaches you a lot about how to get the job done” says former Maharashtra opener and national selector Surendra Bhave who has been a mentor and guide for Jadhav since his U-19 days As Bhave reveals ‘getting the job done’ has been the motto of Jadhav’s career It doesn’t need to look pretty It doesn’t need to be classical It’s just a matter of being effective a trait he mastered in that unforgiving world playing in front of partisan crowds and with more than half a dozen replacements breathing down your neck whenever you walked out to bat “Kedar Jadhav back then and even now is not about technique He’s about strategies It’s always about how can I win a match” adds Bhave Despite being the hired gun for a number of teams he remained loyal to Rainbow CC and Thakur And he soon became a tennis-ball legend in Pune’s western suburb of Kothrud With Jadhav in their mix Rainbow raked up all the big trophies in the circuit including the prestigious Ramanbaug Tournament a 16-over-a-side competition that used to be held in Aundh with a big prize money on offer He also got into the habit of touring for cricket matches from a young age as Thakur would enroll his team into various events even outside Pune like the one in Nagar and stretching as far as Sindhudurg It was Thakur who was also captaining New Union Cricket Club in the Pune District Cricket Association league competitions that pulled the plug on Jadhav’s flourishing tennis-ball career He had realised that he was made for bigger things New Union won seven championships with Jadhav winning the man of the tournament in four of them They also won the Maharshi Trophy on three occasions with the future India star ending up as the MVP twice The final call was taken following his maiden innings for the Maharashtra U-19 side against Kerala in January 2004 It was a knock witnessed by both Bhave and Thakur but one that left them both awestruck and convinced that they were indeed witnessing a special talent Bhave was still captaining the senior state team in all domestic competitions and had just wandered over to the Nehru Stadium that afternoon to catch the junior team “He made 195 of the most striking runs I’ve ever seen He wasn’t only toying with the bowlers he was cracking jokes strutting down the pitch and smashing sixes I had seen nobody bat like that in Maharashtra” says Bhave the astonishment still very evident in his voice “After that knock I told him no more tennis-ball cricket for you There was no turning back from there” Thakur chips in Satyajit Satbhai wasn’t around to see that Jadhav knock The former Maharashtra wicketkeeper-turned-BCCI-certified match referee though insists he’d realised that his state was on the cusp of discovering a unique talent long before he showed up for his U-19 debut “We were playing a league match in Nashik Kedar had reached at nine after having been on an incredibly uneasy taxi ride from Ratnagiri He said ‘let me get one hour’s sleep and I will come in to bat’ We lost two early wickets so Kedar had to walk in early and he smashed the most amazing century” says Satbhai who’s subsequently become one of Jadhav’s closest friends On the field Satbhai recalls his younger colleague always having an ingenious streak But what stood out for him and incidentally counts as the most striking feature for even Bhave and Thakur is an indelible self-confidence “Because he didn’t get classical coaching growing up he coached himself He is not scared He expresses himself through his game It shows in his bowling too” he says Jadhav has always done things differently The Salman fixation Despite the early flashes Jadhav never quite managed to make the big step up and those around him put down his ability to keep the positivity going to his close circle of friends and the Salman Khan fixation “For him it’s about his boys His wife is his childhood sweetheart That’s his support system If he wants to bat for two consecutive hours all his friends will volunteer to give throw-downs through the day He’ll catch every Salman Khan movie first-day first-show with his wife but then once more with them the same afternoon” says Satbhai When in town Jadhav never skips his routine evening chai meeting with friends at their favourite haunt Hotel Vaishali Thakur reveals that Jadhav’s dream is to one day assemble the Rainbow CC XI again and play a tennis-ball match “No effort for him to be the centre of attention He has amazing dance moves He’s the sort who would encourage everyone around him to be silly He’ll keep asking his friends to recall some incident from years ago and then laugh hysterically like he’s hearing it for the first time” says Satbhai Jadhav’s life seems to be on the cusp of taking a starry turn post his heroics in Pune on Sunday But those around him expect him to remain his same unassuming self As Thakur puts it “Uska swabhav ekdum uske batting ki tarah hai (his nature is just like his batting) Pura dil khol ke jeeta hai aur waise hi khelta hai” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top News rain would have stopped because of the play.
