Mani Top News International cricket has returned to Pakistan with a three-match T20 series between the World XI and the hosts Ahead of the historic Independence Cup opener on Tuesday former ICC president and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) functionary Ehsan Mani spoke with The Indian Express describing the event as a “very important step” and expressing his disappointment over India’s non-participation Excerpts: How important are these three T20s in the context of Pakistan cricket This is a very small but very very important step in getting international cricket back to Pakistan While there had been one or two teams like Zimbabwe and Kenya that toured Pakistan before this is the first time (since the 2009 terror attack on the Sri Lanka national cricket team) a mix of high-profile international players is coming to Pakistan So it’s obviously very important How do you look at India’s non-participation in the World XI side I’m a little disappointed that there are no players from India It would have been very nice I know India is involved in the series against Australia but it would have been nice to get the Indian players as well Because you know at the end of the day the game of cricket binds all of us together There’s nothing like cricket to bring people together and help build relations between people and countries Do you agree that no Indian cricketer in the World XI team takes a little bit of gloss off the whole event I understand that there’s a series going on in India so the Indian cricketers can’t participate But some recently-retired Indian cricketers could have played in this series and there are (also) some Indian players who won’t be featuring in the shorter formats; the series between India and Australia So there was ample room for some of them to participate (here) But the BCCI decision related to Pakistan is always based on the government’s approval Look Pakistan and India have been taking part in a lot of events outside full international cricket series There have been bilateral trade (close to $3 billion) and cultural exchanges Why is there an embargo on cricket I think cricket is being used for political purposes which is wrong How do you describe ICC chairman Shashank Manohar’s role to make this series happen I’m very pleased to see that Mr Manohar has come out very strongly supporting and welcoming this These are all good steps and I hope in time sooner rather than later there would be full teams from other countries coming to Pakistan Mr Manohar is obviously doing the right things Globalisation is important World XI captain Faf du Plessis has highly praised the security arrangements for this series But it’s easier to provide head-of-state-like security cover for three T20 matches A full bilateral series of longer duration would be tougher from the security point of view isn’t it A lot of this security that they (World XI) are getting is over and above of what is required It’s more to give them the comfort The reality is that there’s no perceived security threat that one is concerned about Of course things can happen anywhere in the world But in terms of security and the level of comfort (to touring teams) Pakistan is capable of holding international matches For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Manish Sabharwal | Published: July 18 2015 2:28 am Prime Minister Narendra Modi visiting an exhibition at the launch of the National Skill Development Mission (Source: PTI) Related News Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel once said that the best time to plant a tree was 30 years ago but the second best time is today Skills should have been a priority after 1947 because an unskilled or unemployed Indian is not a free Indian and the launch of the Skill India programme earlier this week finally rights that wrong Taking a historical perspective Skills 10 lasted from Independence till the UPA government; a pathetic drift without vision execution or institutions Skills 20 began with the UPA government; the vision was sound but the execution was assassinated by a lack of institutional structures — anybody could say no and nobody could say yes — and the failure to nest skills into a broader job-creation vision While the test will be execution the new skill programme announced earlier this week — Skills 30 — has good odds of succeeding for three reasons First it is part of a multi-point agenda for creating jobs Second it strikes the right balance between continuity and change Finally it strikes the right balance between poetry and prose Before diving into Skills 30 let’s recap learnings from Skills 20 We have three distinct problems: matching (connecting demand to supply) mismatch (repairing supply for demand) and pipeline (preparing supply for demand) We can’t teach children in six months what they should have learnt in 12 years of school We have licked our school enrolment problem and Class 10 is the new Class 8 for employer filtering We confront a financing failure: employers are not willing to pay for skills or candidates but are willing to pay a premium for skilled candidates; candidates are not willing to pay for skills but willing to pay for a job; and banks/ microfinance institutions are not willing to lend for skills unless a job is guaranteed The National Classification of Occupation codes are a poor framework to align demand (what employers want) with supply (the skills kids have) and we need to move from periodic interventions to build a self-healing structure Young job-seekers are unable to get a job without experience but it is unclear how they can get experience without a job India’s firm size distribution — 63 million enterprises only translate to 14500 companies with paid-up capital of more than Rs 10 crore — is a binding constraint for skills because low-productivity enterprises create the vicious circle of being unable to afford the skill wage premium The massive divergence between real and nominal wages in our 45 job hubs (cities with more than a million people) is murdering migration at the bottom of the pyramid It is much more efficient to send trainers to areas with high outward migration But it is rarely possible because trainers are unwilling to move (this is not unique to India even Russia’s Joseph Stalin was unable to get doctors to move to rural Russia) Finally college isn’t what it used to be (60 per cent of taxi drivers in Korea and 15 per cent of high-end security guards in India now have a degree) but the social signalling value of a college degree matters; vocational training is usually for other people’s children not your own Now let’s examine why Skills 30 has better odds Nobody knows whether jobs or skills come first for an economy; the only way to solve a chicken and egg problem is to become vegetarian that is change the problem frame completely The outlines of a complex job-creation policy agenda are emerging — smart cities Make in India Digital India GST ease of doing business labour law reform and cooperative federalism This will combine with some of the wonderful “daily life” objectives listed in the new skill and entrepreneurship policy like unique enterprise numbers for all enterprises composite application forms for all approvals and registrations revised exit policy etc to catalyse productive entrepreneurship The new programme strikes the right balance between continuity and change One of the more painful policy narratives of the last few years has been junking everything done by predecessors but the new skill programme maintains continuity in the structures and leadership of sector skill councils the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and the National Skill Development Authority The earlier target of skilling 500 million people has been revised to 400 million and unpacked into specific chunks The birth defects of the earlier Star scheme have been fixed in the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) which cleverly adds recognition of prior learning Yet the new structure has a separate ministry for skills: putting ITIs apprenticeships sector skill councils the NSDC skill universities and the PMKVY under one roof not only improves coordination but also gives state governments and other Central ministries one neck to catch The erstwhile Planning Commission’s decision to write a new apprentices act was smartly reviewed and the existing act was amended instead; these amendments create the space to take India’s apprentices to one crore from the current four lakh (China has two crore) New connectivity being created by state vocational universities will be amplified by the proposed national vocational university; vocational universities pray to the one god of employers and have only 5 per cent of their kids physically on campus (the rest are in apprenticeships and distance education) and only 5 per cent of their kids are doing degrees The rest are doing certificates and diplomas with modularity to go all the way to degrees There are some loose ends in Skills 30 The ministry of human resource development needs to recognise that massifying higher education requires separate regulatory regimes for small research universities (whose target would be global rankings) and large vocational universities (whose target is volume and employer connectivity with online delivery and blended apprentices) It also needs to amend the Right to Education Act to become the Right to Learning Act because the most important vocational skills are reading writing and arithmetic India’s war on poverty cannot be won without skilling India We may still not get there but at least now we have an integrated plan and can die trying The writer is

of unusual timing of sleep might affect cognitive functioning”(Source: File photo) Top News People who go to bed late appear to have less control over their obsessive thoughts according to results of a small study “That we find that there are specific negative consequences of sleeping at the wrong times that’s something to educate the public about” said Meredith Coles Professor of Psychology at Binghamton University State University of New York The researchers monitored 20 individuals diagnosed with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) — a common chronic disorder that leads to repetitive behaviour — and 10 individuals with OCD—like symptoms during one week of sleep Participants completed sleep diaries and daily ratings of perceived degree of control over obsessive thoughts and ritualised behaviours The researchers found that previous night’s bedtime significantly predicted participants’ perceived ability to control their obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviour on a subsequent day “We’re really interested in how this kind of unusual timing of sleep might affect cognitive functioning” said Jessica Schubert from University of Michigan Medical School “One possibility is impulse control It might be that something about shifting the timing of your sleep might reduce your ability to control your thoughts and your behaviours” Schubert said “So it might make it more likely that you’re going to have a hard time dismissing intrusive thoughts characteristic of obsessions and it might make it more difficult for you to refrain from compulsive behaviours that are designed to reduce the anxiety caused by obsessive thoughts” Schubert added For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Tech Desk | Updated: June 20 2017

minister O Panneerselvam and chief minister-in-waiting VK Sasikala has left heads spinning The most astounding move though came from Sasikala who after a meeting with MLAs on 8 February loaded them all into buses and packed them off to the Golden Bay resort near Kalpakkam effectively sequestering them so that they would not go over to Panneerselvam’s camp But political watchers in the south have seen it all before The origins of such a move lie in the erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh when the Congress clique of Nadendla Bhaskar Rao and Governor B Ramlal had brought down the first non-Congress Telugu Desam Party government in the state Ironically present Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and current Tamil Nadu governor C Vidyasagar Rao were de facto consultants and mentors to then TDP supremo

manner "NTR blamed me for deceiving him But he has no words to say anything against Chandrababu who did the same thing — opportunistic politics" wrote Bhaskar Rao in his book Walking With Destiny In 1984 Chandrababu along with BJP ‘consultants’ had managed to hide all TDP MLAs loyal to NTR at the Ramakrishna Studios in Musheerabad until they boarded a train to Delhi to appear before then
