Who are the remaining 998 In these state electionswe saw Rahul course correct a bit from the old povertarianism But only a bit More important than the absence of internal democracy is the datedness of the Congress productits fundamental value proposition Why is its oldossified and most loyal vote-bank of the poorDalits and minorities now so breached Because all its promises to them are negative If

NewsBy: AP | Budapest | Published: July 31 2017 7:46 pm Kubica is being touted as a possible replacement for struggling British driver Jolyon Palmer next season Top News While others do routine Formula One testing this week it will mean so much more for Polish driver Robert Kubica Kubica who last raced in F1 seven years ago will drive the Renault F1 car on Tuesday in the first of two days of testing at the Hungaroring circuit in Hungary If he does well it will be another step toward F1 for Kubica _ six years after sustaining serious right arm injuries “It’s nice to give him the opportunity to get back get some mileage see how he can handle it” Renault technical director Nick Chester said “It’s a good opportunity to see what he can do and whether he can come back to Formula One someday” The 32-year-old Kubica is being touted as a possible replacement for struggling British driver Jolyon Palmer next season to drive alongside German driver Nico Hulkenberg in a quick-looking lineup for 2018 While the consistent Hulkenberg has scored 26 points with a best finish of sixth Palmer has yet to score a point Kubica has been showing encouraging signs that his remarkable F1 return could happen Renault’s managing director Cyril Abiteboul is eager to see what he can do in a 2017 car having tested out a lighter 2012 F1 model in recent weeks Driving in the 2017 F1 car with increased downforce and wider tires would be more demanding on Kubica’s arm and test his fitness Still Renault believes he can cope albeit with a slightly adapted steering wheel “From what we’ve seen so far his mental fortitude is great he’s pushed very hard to come back” Chester said “Physically he’s passed all of his fitness tests and we’ve had to do very little to the car so he’s actually managed pretty well in a modern F1 car” Kubica a popular driver in F1 from 2006-10 opted to try his luck at rally driving in 2011 In February of that year a high-speed crash at the Ronde di Andora rally left him requiring extensive surgery on his right arm His right hand was partially severed and he sustained further arm and leg fractures He was trapped in the car for more than one hour and needed seven hours of treatment after being airlifted to the hospital It was initially feared he could lose his right hand and a promising career came to a brutal halt Kubica earned 12 F1 podium finishes with his quick flashy driving and was seen as one of the brightest talents in the sport He won the Canadian GP driving for BMW Sauber in 2008 after a second-place finish at the Monaco GP in the previous race “Robert’s one of the quickest drivers I’ve ever raced against Raw natural talent If he was still racing today he’d been in contention for a world title” three-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton said “Not a lot of great great drivers come through Then you have real special drivers like him I’ll have a keen eye on how he’s doing It will be great if he’s able to (return)” For all the

“I have never been able to read Kipling calmly” As Rushdie admits it is only with a mixture of anger and delight that we Indians can read Kipling Anger at his obvious racism and delight at the felicity of his story-telling Perhaps no other writer has undergone such a rollercoaster ride of fame as Kipling At the turn of the 20th century he was the single-most influential figure literary or otherwise who was heard with great respect by kings and PMs Politically incorrect in every way he stoutly defended British colonisation opposed Home Rule for Ireland and openly criticised the Suffragette Movement in England His friends included King George V Cecil Rhodes and Theodore Roosevelt He was artistically and commercially a success winning the Nobel Prize in 1907 When he died in 1936 his funeral was attended by heads of state as well as other dignitaries But the sun set on Kipling and political maps got redrawn with the fall of colonialism He got such a postcolonial drubbing that his name became synonymous with the worst of cultural imperialism Poems like “The White Man’s Burden” where he refers to the colonised as uncivilised people “half devil and half child” or dictums about the irreconcilable East and West did not particularly help George Orwell’s unkind and vehement denunciation was echoed by many privately: “Kipling is a jingo imperialist he is morally insensitive and aesthetically disgusting” When the empire started writing back Kipling the white man’s unacknowledged legislator became the native’s whipping boy Now 150 years after his birth the dust seems to have settled and it is perhaps time to reassess his legacy India might have overcome Kipling but had Kipling managed to overcome India He never returned to India after leaving in 1889 but the country continued to live in his works — in fact the best of his works dealt with India All accusations of Orientalist condescension notwithstanding there is no denying the fact that Kipling knew the country in a way perhaps even many Indians would not have known His stint as a journalist at Lahore and Allahabad acquainted him with not only the pukka English circles but also the brothels and opium dens of Lahore where he spent many insomniac nights He spoke fluent Hindi and imbibed the spirit of the place which he was able to convey through his stories especially the novel Kim Kim seems to be the fictional alter-ego of Kipling himself the white boy who could have passed off as a native and “spoke the vernacular by preference and his mother-tongue in a clipped uncertain sing-song” His great love for children enlivens the animal stories told with a delightful verve Granted that it was the Disneyfication of Kipling that made Mowgli and friends so popular but there is no denying the brilliance of The Jungle Book or Just So Stories Later writers like Gerald Durrell perfected Kipling’s art of attributing human characteristics to animals endearing them to children and adults alike It is no wonder that animals that are normally scary to children like wolves bears black panthers and snakes became lovable companions in the form of Akela Baloo Bagheera and Kaa They are the ancestors of Simba Timon Pumba Nemo Diego and Sid It is the great love for the country that is obvious in the joie de vivre of Kipling’s Indian stories a quality that is missing in his other works The zest for life that is the hallmark of Kim or Mowgli is infectious and Kipling seemed to have associated it with the spirit of India It appears as if he could never quite exorcise India from his psyche trying to recreate it wherever he went naming his house in Canada “Naulakha” Maybe he was laying his demons to rest by writing exhaustively about the single clime he could never forget It is now time to retrieve the “native” from the trappings of the pukka English sahib that Kipling publicly seemed to be The writer teaches at IIT Kanpur For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App
