C.P BINEESH
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM.


Do you remember your headmaster? three feet
cane in hands, loving,
care and instant executer for misbehaviour.
.
.
.
Eventhough harsh, his aim
was your better future.Nowadays Indian
cricket team get a headmaster
like coach with cane in hands- none other
than Mr.Greg 'Great'
Chappel.
.
.
.
After a successfull stint former coach
John Wright flew away
to the land of kivis. But Indian cricket
team are lucky.we got another
good one.
.
.
.
For Chappel every cricketer is equal. He never
see discrimination
among them. this Australian give
importance to kerala lad Sreesanth as
sachin or sourav.
.
.
.
Every cricket lovers can understand
this attitude from the
conditioning camp for indian team
probables at National Cricket
Academy, Bangalore.
.
.
56 years old australian coach's motto
is importance should be given to
team other than individuals. A star
player who is only the part of
'Men In Blue', according Chappel.
.
.
About Sachin's injury Chappel said that
the team should seek another
genious insted of Sachin.
.
.
.
He also directed Sachin to report
in the ongoing camp at Bangalore
before it concludes july 18.
Fittness and minimising injuries are
the recurring themes of new
Indian coach.
.
.
.
for this he receives great help from
trainer Gregory
King and consultant physio Andrew
Leipus. Indian team probables camp
has a kangaru touch also.
.
.
players ,especially fastbowlers had been
helped by bowling legent Dennis Lilly who
has been in Chennai for many
years at M.R.F Pace Academy.
.
.
.
There is a Kinesiologist expert- Dr.
Charles Krebs.
Scientific coaching approach of Chappel
have been appreciated by
media and keen sports lovers.
Will rigurous training and yoga help
Team India? what ever it may be
Indian Team is Indian Team.
.
.
.
They reach at Everest of victory
and fell
in to deep see. The light of joy always
has been overshadowed by
unbelivable failure- that's Bangal Tiger's
roaring group.
.
.
.
Team will
leave for Sreelanka on July 22 where
they play traingular oneday
tournament. Third team is sans Brian Lara
Westindies. so final birth
we alreaday confirmed.
.
.
.
Just wait for few many days for team
declaration; wonder may happen.
Some lazy players in Team India will have
been expelled by fresh
coach.
.
.
.
Chappel never mind about the
colour of cat;but he only think
about how to catch rat. With this mavoist
theory how long Chappel can
go?

rafeeq sakaria, a great man of letters Posted by Picasa

about a great loss

We Madhyamam Journos expresses deep sense of
sorrow at the demise of the well-known parliamentarian,
historian, man of letters and political analyst Dr. Rafiq Zakaria,
as a great loss both to the country and the community.
.
.
.
A man of many worlds, Dr. Zakaria achieved eminence
in the friends of politics, education, administration,
journalism and education. He played an active role in promoting
the education of the community in Maharashtra
and the cause of Urdu throughout the country.
.
.
.
.
Through his writings he made a significant contribution
to communal understanding and harmony.
He was an intellectual of great stature who presented,
through his writings and discourse, Islam in the right perspective.
His books and articles have always been illuminating and thought
provoking. He was a visionary who had a keen eye on issues
concerning the Muslim community and the Indian society at large.
.
.
.
.
We pays respectful tributes to his memory
and prays to god for eternal peace to the departed soul.
madhyamam journos also offers its sincere condolences to
the members of the bereaved family.”

Rafiq Zakaria: A historian of secularism

By: Satish Purohit , journalist, mumbai

Plato’s ideal of a politician who is basically a philosopher
by nature rarely finds expression. Author, columnist,
Islamic scholar and politician Dr Rafiq Zakaria came close.
.
.
.
Zakaria, who breathed his last at the age of eighty-five early
yesterday morning, left behind a rich legacy of books,
educational institutions and a commitment to
the values of secularism and nationalism.
.
.
.
His wife Fatima Zakaria says, “He remained true to the
very last to the ideal of Hindu-Muslim unity and secularism –
ideals that were dear to him since he was 17.
All his writings bear witness to his commitment to these ideals.”
.
.
.
Reputed Islamic scholar Maulana Wahiduddin Khan
said that the news of Dr Zakaria’s demise brought a great
deal of sadness.“I remember him placating incensed crowds
of Muslims in a meeting in Delhi after the Babri Mosque
demolitions. They were upset when he advised them to
exercise restrain and not get emotional.
The way he handled them displayed amazing conviction.”
.
.
.A lawyer by training, Dr Zakaria had a brilliant
academic career: He was awarded the chancellors gold
medal for BA and later earned a doctorate with
distinction from London University. In his 50 years
in politics, he served one term as a cabinet minister
in Maharashtra and later became a deputy leader of the
ruling Congress party in the Indian parliament.
.
.
.
He also represented India in the United Nations three times –
in 1965, 1990 and in 1996. He remained a lifelong votary
of education as a means of social transformation –
the 50 educational institutions created by him across
Maharshtra speak volumes of his concerns for the
upliftment of his community.
.
.
.
His nephew Salim Zakaria, a member of the Maharshtra
Haj committee says, “Zakaria sahib strongly
felt that the only way Muslims can prosper is through
education. His efforts have contributed towards the raising
of literacy among the Muslims.” Dr MA Aziz, general
secretary of several of the institutions pioneered by
Dr Zakaria, says, “We have lost a great patriot and a
great secularist today. He had always exhorted
Muslims to remember that fanatics were a
minority in the Hindu community.”
.
.
.
Noted Journalist MV Kamath said
that Dr Rafiq Zakaria’s contribution to literature on
partition will be remembered for a long time.
“I have personally lost a dear friend and India has
lost a great scholar who was a keen critic of the
two nation theory,” he said.

His memories...

Khushwant Singh,
author journalist
.
.I can’t think of any Muslim in recent times
who has done as much as Rafiq Zakaria.
He was a prolific writer, a keen commentator and a dedicated
educationist. The educational institutions that he has
formed are a boon to the community.
I remember the long evenings that I spend at
the Zakaria’s residence savoring intellectual conversation
and fine biryani served by Fatima, his wife.
He kindled my interest in Urdu poetry and prodded
me to translate Iqbal’s Shiqwa and Jawabe Shiqwa.
I remember those fine evenings when I think of the loss.
.
.
.
M J Akbar
.
.
What a loss! All those magical evenings spent with Zakaria Sahib,
filled with stimulating conversation and charged
debate come to me. I can’t think of another reading,
writing, thinking politician of his calibre.
Sitting in my library here, I can count nine books written
by him. His books on Islam are a treasure to behold. Long
before 9/11, he sought to challenge the demonisation of
Islam by cold logic and argument. It is apt that he died
a few moments after offering namaz. Muslims believe
that those who are dear to Allah pass during or after Namaz
in this manner. His passing leaves behind a
gap in the intellectual life of the country.
