Jaipur Literature Festival – This Year

By Sunil Kumar

The cerebral orgy has ended. According to the organizers and sources, there were nearly 200,000 footfalls this year, compared to the 120,000 last year. As I sum up my impressions of this year, I would like to state that despite all the controversies, the fest is a trailblazer of sorts as it has spawned a slew of similar events across the country.

The music in the JLF this year was tacky; compared to the lively beat we had last year. Also, a delectable tall blonde(or a brunette, I don’t remember) who was at the Tata Steel Front Lawns last year had mysteriously disappeared. The lady vanishes, perhaps! Now, for the pros and cons of the event, compared to the overhyped visit of Oprah last year, His Holiness the Dalai Lama was distinctly mild, rational, humble and gave simple, ethical practical advice. I am about to post a video of his talk on my YouTube channel, in case any of you who read this want to see it.

Flashback: in case my memory of this year fades away in a few seconds. “The Roots of Yoga” session with David White, Jim Mallinson, Mark Singleton and Birad Rajaram Yajnik attempted to project Hindu mystical ways as a universal belief system. David White gave a detailed historical perspective on the roots of one of India‘s most famous cultural exports. For anybody familiar with the idea as defined in our shastras; Patanjali‘s “Yoga Sutras” are considered by many to be the “Bible”. The long discussion attempted to project Yoga as a way of life; that could be enriched by more global contact.

Ruchir Sharma, Edward Luce and Gurcharan Das waxed eloquently on India’s trajectory in the “Inspite of the Gods Revisited” Session. While Gurcharan Das pointed out the lacunae in the country’s growth story, Luce gave a slightly different perspective. Both of them seemed to agree that India’s soft power and intellectual process lay in its freedom of expression and ability to deliberate. Although this can sound a bit farcical with all the bans around, the session was enlightening due to the passion of the speakers and the participating audience.

Build-Up: With the series all square at one each and India finally securing a much-awaited big win, the third ODI between the hosts, India, and the resilient and resurgent England is likely to be a hard-fought affair.
ENGLAND: Overs: 17 II Score: 69/3 (Root 1*, Morgan 0*) 

Just three runs have come for England in the last 18 deliveries along with the loss of three wickets as well. This over from Ishant Sharma yielded just a single to Joe Root who gets off the mark with that.

Shikhar Dhawan stroked a brilliant century as Delhi defeated England by six wickets. This was the second consecutive loss for England in their warm-up matches and this gives them a lot of headaches ahead of the first ODI which begins on January 11th.

Kevin Pietersen was rested for this match and England opted to bat after winning the toss. They got off to a good start with Ian Bell scoring at a confident rate. Alastair Cook chipped in with a confident 44 before he was sent back by Sumit Narwal. The feature of the England innings was a 113 run partnership for the fourth wicket between Bell and Eoin Morgan. Morgan was at his attacking best as he smashed 52 off 55 balls. Bell, who scored a fine 91 in England’s first warm-up game against India A at Palam, scored a wonderful century to continue his good form. Craig Kieswetter finished things off in style by blazing an aggressive 41 off 27 balls as England notched up 294/5.

The Delhi attack featured Parwinder Awana and Ashish Nehra but their bowling looked ordinary. The pick of the Delhi bowlers Varun Sood who picked up 3/45 in his 10 overs.

Delhi were faced with a huge task ahead but Unmukt Chand and Shikhar Dhawan got the team off to a great start. The opening pair notched up 70 runs before Chand was dismissed for 37 by James Tredwell. The Delhi team lost some quick wickets before Milind Kumar joined Dhawan and steadied the ship.

Dhawan was at his authoritative best and took the attack to the England pace bowlers. He drove the pace quartet of Steven Finn, Dernbach, Meaker and Chris Woakes through the covers. The moment the pacers dug it in short he was quickly into position to play the pull shot.

Milind Kumar, at the other end, showed a lot of maturity and paced his innings to perfection. Whether it was playing the slash over deep third man or driving on the up, Milind had an answer to everything that was thrown at him. Dhawan got to his ton with a big six off Tredwell before he was snapped up by Joe Root for 110. The knock came off just 109 balls and included 14 fours and three sixes.

Rajat Bhatia joined Milind Kumar and they ensured that there were no further jolts. Bhatia slammed an unbeaten 45 and finished off the run-chase with a flourish as they put together a 103 run stand off just 72 balls.

All the England bowlers struggled to check the flow of runs and their attack looked pedestrian. This second consecutive loss gives England further problems ahead of the five match ODI series.

The 2013 CES

By Sunil Kumar

One of the biggest fairs in the consumer electronics industry; the CES kicks off on Tuesday in Las Vegas. This is the forum where big guns such as Samsung, Sony, Intel, and more show off their latest and greatest technologies. In the past, electronics such as the CD player, camcorder, and VCR made their stateside debuts at CES. More recently, HDTV, tablets, and the Microsoft Xbox have been unveiled at the conference.

A few announcements this year: ultra-high definition televisions with large screens, evolution in smartphone glass technology, a new version of the Optimus and the Galaxy S4. Intel is going to introduce a new processor; the Bay Trail-T to take on Nvidia‘s Tegra and Qualcomm‘s S4. With CEA estimates that factory-installed automotive technology will generate $8.7 billion dollars in 2013, so it’s no wonder seven major car companies will be on the show floor.

The launch of a corresponding ecosystem means that companies from over 150 countries will be on display.
