coach Carlo Ancelotti came to an end as Jannick Carrasco’s first-half goal gave Atletico Madrid a 1-0 home victory in their Champions League Group D game on Wednesday Bayern were aiming to make it nine wins in a row in all competitions but were derailed by an Atletico side that took a deserved 35th-minute lead and remain unbeaten this season Atletico who beat Bayern in the semi-finals of last season’s competition seized the initiative when Xabi Alonso gave the ball away in midfield allowing the Spaniards to counter Antoine Griezmann sent Carrasco through on goal and the Belgian winger struck a low left-footed shot past a helpless Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and in off the post Atletico could have made it 2-0 with six minutes remaining but Griezmann drove his penalty against the crossbar after Arturo Vidal fouled Filipe Luis in the area The result put Atletico top of the group on six points from two games three clear of Bayern in second PSV Eindhoven and Rostov who drew 2-2 in Russia are level on one point Bayern dominated possession but Atletico had the better of the chances in the opening half at the Vicente Calderon stadium The Bundesliga side however had the first opportunity early on when Thiago Alcantara’s perfect pass found Thomas Mueller in the box but his right-footed volley was saved by Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak Atletico responded with an effort from Carrasco that forced Neuer into a full-stretch save Fernando Torres who was starting for the second time this season should have put the hosts ahead in the 23rd minute but the striker’s close-range header from a corner struck the post He then drilled a left-footed shot wide Torres however was influential in Atletico’s goal pressuring Alonso to give up possession which allowed Griezmann to break and tee up Carrasco Early in the second half Ancelotti brought on Arjen Robben Mats Hummels and Joshua Kimmich who had scored twice as Bayern thrashed Rostov 5-0 in their group opener Atletico maintained control and Carrasco came close to scoring his second when his curled shot was kept out by Neuer Griezmann could have killed the game off from the penalty spot but his miss proved academic

kissing scenes between actor Daniel Craig and his leading ladies in the 24th James Bond film “Spectre” Going by the hashtag — #SanskariJamesBond — on Twitter a majority of Indian James Bond fans don’t seem to have liked the cuts the CBFC has effected in the latest Bond offering Rathore added that he would suggest that CBFC should act as a board without propagating any individual ideology He said: “The decision of censorship should be under constitutional limitation freedom of speech or programming board for U and A certificates” There are times when filmmakers call for the minister of state for information and broadcasting to intervene and sort out the censorship issues But according to Rathore it is not that easy “CBFC is an autonomous body we cannot as a government interfere in their work We don’t interfere in day-to-day matter” he said But there is light at the end of the tunnel The politician says that a new cinematography act and other methods are being considered to make censorship smoother in India “We are working on a new cinematography act A draft has come from justice Mudgal committee we may put it in public domain or give to some experts for suggestions “We are also in the process of making censorship easier and transparent for certification to ensure rights of the filmmaker And gradually we will make the entire process online say in next five years” he said

liquor licences of two major joints — Effingut Brewerkz (above) and Teddy Boy — at Deron Heights Top News WEEKS AFTER the district collector cancelled its liquor licence even as another pub continues to operate at Deron Heights Baner restaurant Effingut Brewerkz has hit back with a ‘Pay as You Please’ offer from August 21 Monday On August 4 the collector had issued an order cancelling liquor licences of two major joints — Effingut Brewerkz and Teddy Boy — at Deron Heights The order was issued after several months of protests by residents of Baner’s Pallod Farms Phase 1 The residents had started a ‘No Bar at my Dwar’ campaign against several outlets in the building which falls under their vicinity However while liquor licences of the two pubs were cancelled citing that their “operations are creating problems like parking in the neighbourhood” operations at The Irish Village — another pub on the same premise — remain unaffected Terming the order as “discriminatory” Manu Gulati owner of Effingut Brewerkz has now appealed to his patrons to save the restaurant from shutting down “We are currently fighting two battles One a legal one of our rights that of our random and discriminatory cancellation of the liqour licence Second a tougher one that of our very survival With about 100 employees other costs like rent staff meals accommodation raw material electricity maintenance operations everyday is a struggle in terms of meeting costs To counter this with a hope to survive we are doing something that probably hasn’t been done before Presenting ‘Pay as You Please’ Order as much as you want from the menu and pay as you please” read his Facebook post Speaking to Pune Newsline Gulati said it was the only way he saw the restaurant surviving after the drop in business over the last fortnight Stating that his pub is essentially known as a place for premium beers and drinks the footfall at the restaurant has gone down sharply “We are having less than two tables occupancy over the last few days for dinner I have 93 staffers how will we manage Luckily no one has left so far but the worry is written on their faces We are primarily a place that serves the best of beers but our food is also very well appreciated Hence we have put out this appeal to our patrons who have always supported us to bring us out of this till our licence comes back because we won’t give up We will fight this discrimination” said Gulati He added “We have a monthly goal which is their bare minimum target to survive This would be constantly displayed on the screens for all to know so the patrons are aware of the restaurant’s battle for survival” On their legal fight Gulati said an appeal is now pending before the excise commissioner “If we don’t get a satisfactory response we would approach the excise minister as well” he added For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Surjit S Bhalla | Updated: February 11 2015 4:45 am AAP supporters celebrate the party’s victory in the Delhi Assembly polls in Dadar on Tuesday (Source: Express Photo by Ganesh Shirsekar) Related News This election is history and now begins the campaign to understand it — for the AAP the BJP their well-wishers and armchair analysts (like myself) The key to the analysis is that it should not be circular or tautological that is it happened because it happened And most importantly this analysis should be able to explain or at least be consistent with the resounding defeat of the AAP and the victory of Narendra Modi just eight months ago — and the complete reversal today Indeed the AAP has done one better than the BJP It has won 67 out of 70 seats; the BJP won “only” 60 of these same 70 assembly constituencies in the Lok Sabha (LS) elections of 2014 One popular opinion among experts is the refrain that as is well known from opinion polls and surveys the Delhi voter had long ago decided that they would vote for Modi at the national level and for Arvind Kejriwal at the state level The only problem with this internally consistent explanation is that one would have to ask why Delhi is so different from Maharashtra Haryana (right next door and with a lot of the same “voters”) Jharkhand and Jammu and Kashmir Delhi might be the capital and quirkily different but it is not unique If it is it will be a sad blow to theambitions and hopes of the AAP to go at least partly national One other popular explanation is that the election proves there is a steep class divide in Delhi that is the poor voted for the AAP and the middle class and the rich voted for the BJP This hypothesis is false on so many counts that it is difficult to know where to begin For beginners the AAP has won nearly 100 per cent of the seats across all three income classes — low medium and high as defined by Cicero/ Headlines Today Second the AAP scored a 100 per cent knock-out only in the high-income category Third the poor in Delhi according to the Tendulkar “absolute poor” definition (around Rs 90000 per year for a family of five in February 2015 prices) constitute less than 10 per cent of the population For an income level 50 per cent higher (Rs 135 lakh per year) the poor are 25 per cent of the population So let us forget the notion that class war was an explanation let alone an important explanation And while we are at it let us also forget that caste considerations mattered Even if class and caste are strongly correlated as some claim if income did not matter how come caste did Finally let us reject the hypothesis that what explains this historic election is the non-support of the rank and file of the BJP or the famed political prowess of the RSS workers (this rank and file has not won a Delhi election in more than 20 years) or their non-acceptance of Kiran Bedi as an interloper or the sheer political ineptitude of Bedi To be sure all of these things mattered and they chipped away at BJP seats but really the story would be no different if the AAP had obtained “only” 55 seats Because what has happened in the Delhi election 2015 purely and simply is history The table lists the 10 biggest wins and losses in assembly elections countrywide in 21 big states since the coalition era began post the 1989 VP Singh election Obviously there have been more elections but the criteria limit our selection to only those assembly elections held within one year of the preceding Lok Sabha election (a total of 29 elections) The highest win/ loss is the 2015 AAP victory in Delhi (a swing of plus 214 per cent); the second highest was the loss by the BJP in Haryana in 2000 — a swing of minus 203 per cent Okay we agree on what does not explain history — but what does The story about explaining this election has just begun both by me and other self-styled experts My partial but not small interpretation of what happened proceeds as follows First the conclusion Just eight months ago Modi had pulled off one of the most stunning victories ever His platform and appeal was the delivery of both economic growth and governance He has delivered on economic growth on several fronts — and I am not basing this conclusion on the new GDP data A lot of initiatives and initial steps towards a reformed economy have already been taken and Budget 2015 is likely to take this process considerably ahead But where Modi has failed is in providing political governance Ever since May 2014 India has been subjected to a barrage of actions oriented towards the encouragement of social disharmony The list is long but here are some examples “Love jihad” or attempts to interfere with the private lives of young Indians; the non-discouragement of honour killings in the name of caste; ghar wapsi or attempts to go against the basic tenets of Hinduism in aggressively pursuing proselytisation; the initiative to make the learning of a dead language like Sanskrit compulsory as one of three “compulsory” languages; the continuous attempts to make the lives of minorities even more insecure (burning of churches in Delhi especially a city going to polls); the non-condemnation and non-removal of a minister stating that those who were not Hindus were “haramzade”; the tolerance of statements that Hindu women should have four kids in order to boost even more the 80 per cent-plus Hindu population; the continuous pursuit from high-level officials about India being a Hindu nation and the attempt to revive the building of a Ram temple in Ayodhya; the tolerance of a BJP-appointed censor board official Ashoke Pandit who attempted to censor humour and free speech by being even more vulgar and in a non-joke way than anything that the AIB could ever say let alone said (Congratulations guys but I am disappointed by the fact that you are apologising for hurting “sentiments”); and the wearing of an expensive Rs 10 lakh or whatever embroidered suit for the meeting with US President Barack Obama For the quarter of Delhi’s households which live on less than Rs 14 lakh a year that is seven years of food shelter and well-being These tendencies towards social disharmony have been condemned by many including supporters of Modi Jagdish Bhagwati and well-wishers like Obama This all adds to the anger of the middle class and the rich — in addition to the anger of the poor What happens next I think the Delhi election will turn out to be a win-win election for India Delhi Modi and Kejriwal The Delhi wake-up call is likely to considerably improve governance under Modi — and improve the chances for economic reforms and growth initiatives Modi is one of the most astute politicians the world has seen and he is likely to see what he needs to do in order to achieve his goal everyone’s goal of a free and prosperous India Equally Kejriwal knows that he now has to deliver on governance by actually governing With the great mandates that both Modi and Kejriwal won come great expectations — and not meeting those expectations even halfway bring about greater disappointments The Delhi lesson for Modi is that he should not see the AAP’s victory as having relevance for only Delhi And the lesson for Kejriwal (as well as the AAP) is thathe should not see the Delhi election as having meaning beyond Delhi Bhalla is chairman of Oxus Investments an emerging market advisory firm and a senior advisor to Zyfin a
