Updated: December 3 2014 3:48 pm Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti Related News Union minister of state Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti described the choice for voters in Delhi as one between “Ramzaadon” (those born of Ram) and “haramzaadon” (the illegitimately born) The comment — made in the national capital barely a few weeks after the communal violence in east Delhi’s Trilokpuri had simmered down — deservedly provoked wide outrage including in Parliament and the minister has since apologised But the Narendra Modi government needs to ask itself if this is — if it can be allowed to be — the end of the matter READ:Opposition ups the ante asks PM Modi to sack Sadhvi Jyoti for her controversial remark For six months now whatever else it may or may not have done the Modi government has proved to be remarkably adept and inventive in keeping alive the expectation of “change” and “hope” that swept it to power The PM talks of “Make in India” and “Swachh Bharat” energetically occupies the “can do” space disarming political opponents and rivals in the process ALSO READ:Back home in UP Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti throws her weight around too At the same time from the very beginning another chorus has been rising from within the parivar which articulates hate and prejudice against minorities and which would appear to be distracting from and even in direct conflict with the unexceptionable and apparently inclusive message that the prime minister is straining to project as his own If there was the vicious “love jihad” campaign earlier that could not deliver the expected results in the UP by-polls there has been the unabashed rhetoric of polarisation used by partymen in poll-bound Delhi and new hunting ground West Bengal more recently So far Modi has maintained a stoic silence on the other voice and the other message But as the hate speech becomes louder and bolder and as it travels from the parivar’s so-called fringe and climbs up to the Union ministry the PM’s uncharacteristic wordlessness is becoming more conspicuous It is also giving rise to a question: how does a PM so communicative and one who is known to tightly centralise and control the message allow a Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti to so blatantly disrespect the Constitution she has sworn allegiance to and get away with it In this case can a mere apology be enough It is not enough for the PM to send out a coded reprimand — at a meeting of BJP lawmakers in Parliament on Tuesday he warned them against speaking out of turn This is the moment for a forthright response Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti must be asked to resign from the ministry At best her continuation as minister is a distraction from Modi’s stated agenda for change At worst it suggests that this government’s professions to be religion-neutral provide a cover for

And The Capitalist hears that among those competing on the track will be a surprisingly large number of City types, enjoying a bit of a break from the daily grind.Orange chief executive Tom Alexander will be there taking a 1951 Aston Martin DB2 for an adrenaline-fuelled spin; former peer Baron Laidlaw, the businessman who earlier this year refused to become domiciled in the UK for tax purposes, will be hopping over from Monaco to get behind the wheel of a Maserati 250S; and Shaun Lynn, the president of inter-dealer broker BGC Partners, will be driving his own 1961 lightweight Jaguar E-type.JCB chairman Sir Anthony Bamford’s rare and pricey 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO is being driven by his son Joe, while Tesco group strategy director and BSkyB non-executive Andrew Higginson is leaving the driving to the professionals.

In order to calculate how much steeper, he’s developed a Wiesn Visitor Price Index, breaking down the cost of visiting to two Mass (two litres) of beer and half a grilled chicken, plus the price of public transport.“The development of the individual price components reveals that prices have risen disproportionately since 1985,” Kock writes, adding that beer has risen the fastest, by over four per cent per year. The upshot? Oktoberfest’ll cost you, 3.4 per cent more than last year, to be precise – and well above the expected inflation rate of 1.2 per cent.Luckily, to ease the pain of the actual hangover, Kock also kindly included a ten-point guide to avoiding feeling like death the morning after – water, eating plenty of sausages to soak up the alcohol, you know the drill. If all else fails, an hourly dose of vegetable broth should do the trick for the remaining beer toxins, as well as copious amounts of chocolate and pizza.“Of course – to quote Benjamin Franklin – an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” Kock muses. “But experience teaches that this is easier said than done…” Quite.SADDLE SOREA cautionary tale from the City with regard to the so-called “Boris bikes”, courtesy of Baker Tilly’s cheery head of capital markets Chilton Taylor.Taylor tells me he’s been on the bike trail for four days so far, though only the first of those days has been entirely successful. On the second day, he encountered three separate bikes which could not be released from their docking stations, while on the third day, the gears failed half way through his journey back home.On the fourth day, he rose again to the challenge, but passed four empty stations before having to walk a mile to find a bike. Adding insult to injury, Taylor then proceeded to ride for a grand total of two minutes in exuberant style before his trousers split down the seams.

Japan’s offload king Tim Lafaele on his wrestling inspiration

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Japan centre is famed for slick passing but exploits in the ring have spurred him on Asked to recall his favourite offload, he quickly responds that his flick against Russia in the World Cup opener was a moment to treasure. For those who had followed Japan in the build-up, playing with such freedom as they would go on to do against European powers like Ireland and Scotland should not have been a surprise.Related: Inside the vital 24 hours before Japan v Scotland“The coaches, Jamie Joseph and Tony Brown, encourage boys to play with their own style,” he explains. “It’s good feet, they encourage the boys to have a crack all the time. And it’s in games, not just at training. Having the confidence from the coaches means heaps when you go out to express yourself.“Tony Brown, when he takes our backs and we’re doing passing drills, we’ll be doing normal passes and he’ll chuck in, ‘Nah, boys, this time all the passes have to be around the back – keep practising that.’ So everyone’s trying it and most guys have one good arm and one bad arm…!”Lafaele says he was surprised when Joseph and Brown first called him up to the Japan set-up, but he has been nurtured and encouraged since. He made his debut in 2016 and has started 22 of his 23 Tests. And while Fale has helped him set goals, he has had plenty of on-field mentors too. Tim Bateman and Andy Ellis have helped him out, while seeing Dan Carter at close quarters was also beneficial.In Europe: Playing against England in 2018 (Getty Images)Then there is the coach work of Wayne Smith at the Steelers, who Lafaele praises for his communication skills, his rapport with the athletes. Asked why Smith is so coveted, so influential, the back adds: “You’ve got all these other coaches trying to make up moves and stuff but if you run, use hands, you’ve just got to be square. It’s running good lines. It’s keeping stuff simple so the boys can understand easily and execute easily.”During lockdown, though, clubs have been good at letting Japanese Test players focus on programmes remotely, to align with national plans. Lafaele has been back in Auckland, helping out his family there, but he has his eyes set on a bright future for the Brave Blossoms. Key to that, for him, is Japan getting to compete with the best of Europe in November.“I’m pretty excited and keen to get involved if that tournament does go ahead,” Lafaele says of unconfirmed stories about Japan’s involvement in an eight-team tournament in Europe in November. “I want to carry on that momentum from last year but also our boys are working hard at the moment as well.”He believes that after the highs of the World Cup and the buzz around Japanese rugby – it was an interesting experience to be recognised on the way into Wrestle Kingdom, for example – it is time to capitalise. He also wants to improve on his game, being smarter and more ruthless at the contact area while maintaining his ability to slip a pass. Think of the savvy Conrad Smith, he says.It’s time to show off a bit more of his ring craft. Can’t get to the shops?

On the field of play, though, Lafaele is a willing showman. Offload king Tim Lafaele on his wrestling inspirationLike oh-so many Samoan kids, Tim Lafaele was a fan of wrestler Dwayne Johnson growing up. He could smell what The Rock was cooking.Yet the story of his early life was one punctuated by transition and rugby. Lafaele was sent to Auckland at just four to be adopted by his uncle, while his father remained in Samoa, hoping young Timothy would prosper abroad. Having missed out on the Auckland rugby academy, in his last year at De La Salle College, Lafaele would get the opportunity to move to Japan, for a four-year scholarship at Yamanashigakuin University.Today, he is settled. It has been 11 years since Lafaele, 28, left for Japan and in 2019 his offloading antics for the Brave Blossoms on an incredible 2019 Rugby World Cup sent tongues wagging. And all the way there it was rugby propelling him, the pursuit of a professional contract the initial motivator.He would move to Fukuoka to join the Coca-Cola Red Sparks out of university and then later the Kobe Kobelco Steelers, as well as featuring for the Sunwolves and of course the Japan national team.“I’d never heard of it at the time,” Lafaele says of Japanese rugby scholarships and his early experiences. “But when I got there, there were so many other guys doing it.“I didn’t know much about Japan – all I knew was the big city, the big lights. But when I went there it was a totally different part of Japan, out in the country! It was a bit of a shock at the start as I didn’t know how to speak Japanese.“The training was a lot different to New Zealand too. It was long. We’d have three or four hour-long training sessions in the afternoon. We’d do training in the morning before you go to class and after that the three or four-hour training.”World Cup wonder: Offloading during Japan’s win against Ireland (Getty Images)Pushed by his family to go out and see the world for himself, he relished the rugby opportunity. However, we all crave something familiar and it is here where the life of a wrestler really captured him.Toks ‘Bad Luck’ Fale is a founding member of the Bullet Club stable of performers, in New Japan Pro-Wrestling. He is also a De La Salle alumnus who took up a Japanese university scholarship and went on to play professional rugby in the country, at the Fukuoka Sanix Blues (now Munukata), before injury curtailed his career and he turned to a life of grappling. Fale has served as something of an inspiration to Lafaele.The centre says of his friend: “In my last year of high school we went to a tournament in Japan. He (Fale) stayed in the area, in Fukuoka, and I met him there. We kept in contact. Then when I went over to Japan for university I contacted him.“He basically helped me, talked to me when I needed help or extra motivation. He’d tell me to keep writing my goals down and to aim for them.“When I first went over to Japan in 2010, that’s when he was a ‘young lion’ – that’s what they call them when they start going into the dojo – and he’d just started up then. He made his debut that year. Starting out he was at the bottom but it only took him like a couple years until he was at the top with the Bullet club. Seeing him do that, man it just motivated me to try to do the same with my rugby.“Seeing the struggles he went through to get to where he is now motivates most of the guys from my school when they see his story.”Inspiration: Lafaele and Tui temporarily join the Bullet Club (pic: Tim Lafaele)Shortly after the World Cup, the 6ft 5in and 130kg-plus Fale invited Lafaele and team-mate Hendrik Tui to sit ringside for an event at Wrestle Kingdom. Then closer to time, Fale asked the pair if they would like to walk the competitors out to the ring.The two rugby stars were jacked at the offer, but when they got backstage it dawned on them that they did not know the proper etiquette for such a role. Panicking, they laughed and asked each other at the curtain, “How are we going to do this?!” Ring kings: Lafaele (left) with Hendrik Tui (far right) at Wrestle Kingdom (pic: Tim Lafaele) last_img
