malaise What should be the language of politics Orto be more precisewhat should the language of politicians in power be This issue captured headlines in the Marathi media recently Much indignation was expressed over the indefensible remarks by Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar (not directed at anyone in particular) He did something unusualat least by the standards of politics in the state In a public speechhe gave vent to his frustration against those pressing the government to ensure adequate water supply to various drought-hit areas of the state While doing thishe used coarse languageraw imagery and crude humour The speech wasby any countin bad taste and unbecoming of a leader aspiring to be chief minister What went unnoticed was the possible cause behind his unbecoming outburst Speeches in bad taste are not new to the state and it is ironic that the Shiv Sena and its breakaway groupthe Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS)should be at the forefront of the protests By picking up the convenient agenda of demanding Ajit Pawars resignationthe opposition and media have skipped an opportunity to debate public decency and the causes that prompt indecency The Shiv Sena made popular this genre of politics: effective public use of unspeakable language Even before the Shiv Senaa famous literary and public figureAcharya Atre (1898-1969) was known for public speeches that held to no bars of civilised language Atre was a gifted public speakerjournalist and literary author with delicate sensibilities But he used language and the gift of the gab in such a way that for one generationpolemics was reduced to below-the-belt attacks on opponents Sena chief Bal Thackeray went a step further and strategised the use of unacceptable language and idiom to caricature communities and leaders he was opposing This strategy worked in the mid-1990s Following himhis nephew Raj Thackeray too has mastered the art of mimicry and venomous verbal attack on his targets In factthe Shiv Senaand later the MNSbrought a new culture of politics to the state This new culture is not only about their brand of street politicsbut consists of a form of public speaking wherein the performative aspect dominates Crowds throng to the speeches of Raj Thackeray (in some measure Uddhav Thackeray) and earlier used to do the same for Bal Thackeraymainly because of the expectation of vile attacks on political leaders (mostly of the Congress and the NCP) their physical appearance and private lives and because of the dashing image of the speakers whoat willtransgress the limits of public decency Unfortunatelysuch transgressions are seen as political capability Sowhen Ajit Pawar speaks the same languagewhy is there so much surprise And what does Pawars speech signify There seems to be an implicit understanding in the state that bad language and personal attacks are strategies available to only certain sections of the political classand that those who are in politics in order to rule (rather than remain in opposition) have to abide by the unwritten rules of decency The Congress and the NCP look upon themselves as natural rulers and are hence bound by these rules Pawar has violated this unstated norm Hence the all-round criticism and his apology He sat at the samadhi of the late Yashwantrao Chavan and fasted for a day as a mark of penance But was that original outburst of cruel humour only a slip Is it likely that Pawar resorted to this indecency merely out of exasperation Just because he was unsettledmomentarilyby the flood of charges and criticisms against the departments he is controlling in the government This would probably be a somewhat generous interpretation It is more likely that Pawars so-called outburst of unseemly language is symptomatic of a deeper and more serious malady in the body politic of Maharashtra And that malady is not just about the issue of public decency or its lack The Shiv Sena used that style of violent vocabulary as a supplement to its vigilante politicsand later mastered the style to match its anti-Muslim politics too It was an electoral strategy to mobilise support beyond its core constituency It is likely that Pawar has resorted to this strategy in order to electorally retain his core constituency If the strategy of employing crude humour and candid language succeedsthen the NCP can play the Shiv Senas (and the MNSs) game and attract the crowds without addressing important issues There would be no need to respond to the critical challenges facing the party and the government Currentlythe NCP is finding it difficult to respond to several critical issues Three such issues haunt the NCP and its partner in power Droughtof courseis the most urgent It epitomises related policy issuestoo The other issue is about farm lands being required/ acquired for development purposes Both of these directly affect the ruling partiessince their core constituency still happens to be the rural agricultural sections The ruling parties are pursuing policies that do not address these issuesand yet they rely on the electoral support of the adversely affected voters The third related crisis is the Maratha demand for OBC status and a share in OBC reservations Whichever way the demand is resolvedthe Congress and the NCP are bound to fail in pleasing the ever acerbic pro-reservation Maratha leadership and large sections of the poor Marathas In this backdropthe NCP faces the challenge of retaining its core constituency of the Maratha vote in rural and semi-urban Maharashtra This constituency is growing uneasyit has shown a propensity to impatiencehas responded to the rhetoric of targeting an unidentified enemy andabove allis being wooed by multiple players Pawar has witnessed the Senas and MNSs apparent short cut to popularitycrowd-pulling and irresponsible strategy of demeaning the opposition His uncleSharad Pawarfor all his faultsalways chose to counter these strategies with a deeply wily brand of politicsresolutely avoiding the easy game of crowd-pulling When the nephew adopts the strategy shunned by the uncleis that an indication that the malaisenot of wrong politics but non-politicsis

pre-match photoshoot for the broadcasters (Source: Express photo by Arul Horizon) Top News The first photograph of an Australian cricketer to emerge from this Indian tour was one of hardship David Warner bent inside a truck at the airport in Mumbai lifting a hefty coffin as the cricket trunks are called It might well end up as the definitive image of the series of what’s in store for them Rarely has an Australian team evoked sympathy but this one does It might seem like condescension when not a ball has been bowled yet but that’s the whole point To take recourse in that adage “cricket is funny game and anything can happen” seems like a such a tame escape of a fence-sitter Who doesn’t enjoy a good contest but it feels like a lie at this point To take refuge in Australia’s glorious past or to talk about the famous Australianism feels like a cop out For something strange seems to be brewing in the Indian summer Who are these foreigners who have landed up here Coy about their own talents shy about sledging talking up opposition spinner as ‘Jesus’ a few batsmen not just lacking aura and the usual bossiness associated with the Aussies but looking rather diffident and unimpressive slow men Even when they were whitewashed last time around the team in itself hadn’t looked this banal It had men who couldn’t fire and that could happen to anyone but rarely has an Australian team come to India with such an obvious lack of aura It’s almost puzzling for an Indian of an earlier generation to say these things It’s Indians who have often gone on masochistic tours abroad where there was no chance in hell of winning and the most optimistic feeling would be that Sachin gets a hundred somewhere and the bowlers don’t come back shell-shocked and seek refuge in psychologist’s couch Much depends on Mitchell Starc Steve Smith and David Warner of course but even Warner’s success isn’t guaranteed here against Indian spin Starc could be quite handful if conditions favour reverse swing but the Indian seamers could rock the middle order with it Moreover Starc and the talented Josh Hazlewood’s heavy workload makes one wonder about their progress by the time the fourth Test comes up Consider couple of numbers from the pace duo Since his debut in December 2014 Hazlewood has bowled the maximum number of overs across all three formats by any paceman in the world — 12165 back-breaking overs In the same time period Starc clocked the third highest miles after Trent Boult hurling down 10613 overs and this despite injuries that forced him to miss out games in 2015-16 The workload was enough to rile former Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson “I can see the amount of overs that they are bowling I can see with body language with certain guys it will catch up with them There’s a lot of cricket going on and there’s a lot of burnout” Johnson told the radio station Talk Sport On Tuesday Starc was doing what he does — pounding in hard at the nets cupping the ball in his right hand and transferring it at the last instant to his left to practice for reverse swing Hazlewood who is the McGrath of this attack talked a good talk about what he needs to do in India — bowl cutters dry up runs by piling on the maidens and having loads of patience Despite the burnout fear this pair remains Australia’s best bet but that brings us to next conundrum Why despite bulging evidence from history go for a two-man spin attack If your best bowling option is pace Australia would do well to shrug off any preconceived notions about playing two spinners and go with an extra paceman in Jackson Bird Nathan Lyon Australia’s premier spinner too talked about how he has watched R Ashwin to pick up skills “ I have been watching a lot of footage of Ashwin the way he goes about it his different release points” It’s a sensible thing of course but it might be a tough act to follow Not because Lyon isn’t a good spinner but because of his action The way Ashwin loads up and delivers it’s far easier for him work the different angles Lyon’s is a fluid smooth action that might make it difficult for him to pull off the different release points In the CCI game after being put under the kosh by Shreyas Iyer and K Gautham Lyon not only reverted to bowling flat and quick but also ended up dragging them short as well The one thing that has been clear from the videos from their training sessions in Dubai and at the practice game is that unlike his previous Indian visit Lyon is trying to bowl a lot quicker It remains to be seen whether the hiding he got at the tour game makes him change Not that the batting isn’t a worry It’s strange to see a team coached by Darren Lehmann look so unconvincing as this unit has done in the recent times in Sri Lanka Even Steven Smith got out five times to the left-arm spin of Rangana Herath It would be really interesting to see how he shoulders the burden of captaincy as the series progresses And so we are left with
