Bali was not just Kyoto It was more For one thing the original quantitative roadmap was for all practical purposes gonesince the world hadnt lived up to it Given the flexibility this created in the diplomatic spacethe Chinese play their interest very well At one level they agree with the urge to treat the larger framework of Kyoto as an achievementbut at another they play the negotiating stand of a country which will enter the arena in a big way and is willing to take on that responsibility The statements of Premier Wen Jia Bao at the Pittsburgh G-20 meeting with the US were a clear indication of this Some of usincluding Chinese scholars and expertsclarify that this does not mean that everything is smooth and that the Asian countries will play the game as the developed world sets it Sustainable policies are not just questions of global negotiationsbut have to grapple with issues of energy requirementsland usefood demand changes and agriculture and technology for meeting industrial and service requirements If communities are out of balance with their resource endowmentsthere can be no question of significant advance in the areas of global concern like carbon sequestration or biodiversity Strategic policy initiatives in the energy sector come out of all energy models including the ones Environment Minister Ramesh unveiled recently But the perception that there are possibilities of bringing large countries together in a framework of discussion on such questions is correct Unfortunately the world has not learnt to negotiate on these terms and the knowledge-base listed remains untouched The long-term language of the other remains an enigma and that is the problem when large countries come to grips This is an unresolved question In August 1982I

Top 10 ranking list for 369 weeks before she dropped down to No 11 this Thursday Turn that number over in your head a few times: 7 years one month and week There was no proverbial itch — but a full blown crack in the knee bone that snapped this run of seven years and 10 Super Series titles It was bookended — almost — by the Beijing and Rio Olympics and included a medal at London Games apart from a Commonwealth Games gold in Delhi and a World Championship silver at one of the 26-year-old’s most prolific venues — Indonesia On Friday there was one lady sitting at the court-corner opposite Nehwal during her quarterfinal battle at Hong Kong who had been intimately privy to the first rush of success during the rise of this Indian phenomenon called Saina Nehwal Coach to Nehwal’s opponent on the day Cheung Ngan Yi the 40-year-old watched with unreal equanimity as her ward and the Indian took the home crowd through a classic roller-coaster The fightback The home supporters are unlikely to forget the fightback of their young shuttler Cheung an elastic band on the Hong Kong Coliseum court diving away and playing out of her skin hoping to go deep into the weekend contest and managing to win 21-8 18-21 21-19 But they were appreciative of the opponent who fell by the wayside this week at the end of the 1 hour 11 minute gruel Coach Chen Wang smiled just a little taking it all in At the Beijing Games in 2008 Chen Wang was seeded fourth had just thrashed a Slovakian in her opener and was challenging the top two mainland Chinese Zhang Ning and Xie Xingfang for the title A gold winner at Junior World Championships Asian Games and Asian Championships (which at times can get tougher than Olympics) Chen Wang had come second best only to the Chinese in the last Olympics and at the Worlds just before the Beijing Games Representing Hong Kong-China proudly Beijing was to be her last shot at the big medal Except she ran into Saina Nehwal an Indian teenager in a hurry to stamp her might on the game losing to the 19-year-old in three sets in the quarterfinals She was the first of many Wangs that Nehwal pushed aside over the next few years Chen would head home to the Hong Kong Super Series later that same November and pick her last title On Friday she sat inscrutable guiding along her charge the young Cheung as she brought to a skidding halt Saina Nehwal’s attempts at re-entering that rarefied zone of Top 10s and tournament semifinals Nehwal’s fighting grit is legendary and Cheung matched her in every sense of the dramatic face off Indians were keen on watching Nehwal go head on against the country’s darling and Olympic runner up PV Sindhu but the anticipation ended when the original fighter couldn’t keep up her end of the bargain after Sindhu had scrambled into the Last 4 Still the quarterfinal was pretty climatic for the anti-climax Disastrous start Nehwal had started disastrously with not even a hint of a take-off in the opener which she lost 21-8 Coming off successive three-setters in only her second meet after her return from surgery she didn’t look in the best of shapes but the pickled experience was releasing flavours of bygone dominance – the crosscourt whipped smashes the flicked flat strokes that found their angles the sliced drops hit with the edge of racquet at 90 degrees and the fire intact when pushed by the line calls At one point in the mid-set the review challenge would justly alter a 17-15 score to 16-16 after she’d scored 4 straight point surges twice and it would fire her up so much that she propelled herself quick-burning the fumes she was running on She revved up the pace of the rallies her aggression piggybacking as she pumped her fist and let out feral cries to push the match into a decider Nehwal would lead 9-4 in the third but Cheung had a wise mind guiding her through what is essentially a high-frenzy explosive game which under the stern eye of Chen Wang never lost its direction Cheung has good shots from the back of court and some deceptive drops as well as scorching pace when she rushes the net to dictate her strokes It was all too much too soon for Nehwal in only her second week on return – fourth match after three weeks of training on court “The last two matches were very tiring I pushed but it was too tough for me today” she told the BWF website after the match Not the sharpest at the nets owing to her leaden movements and breathing heavy Nehwal craved that lung power to push her through She’d rustle up 6 straight points to come back from 11-18 down – relying on her will power and experience making Cheung scurry around But against a compulsive retriever who could pack in her strokes it was never going to be enough as she watched the train leave the platform “She was a bit more alert in the end I was trying to get my breath back and she was pushing hard I had the feeling I could’ve won but it’s not easy when you’re not fit” she told the BWF Saina’ll take heart from the fact that her leg is holding up and it’s a matter of regaining leg strength and stamina as her coach Vimal Kumar says She echoed him adding “I’m not disappointed with the loss Could have played semis – but when your condition is not good you can’t expect too much” she added The Olympic years have been eventful for Saina Nehwal from swatting aside Ukrainian Larysa Gryga in Beijing 2008 to going down to an unknown Ukrainian at Rio Chen Wang resurfaced from the slice of history that was the Indian’s first success at the Olympics and watched the beginning of another chapter in Saina Nehwal’s journey unfold She’d have noted that the fight’s not gone out of this one For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Suanshu Khurana Somya Lakhani |

there was plenty to like at this year’s Bacardi NH7 Weekender But lack of a solid metal act and sound problems left the Delhi audience asking for more Equal parts high-school teenagers flower children in their mid 20s parents and toddlers — all were seen revelling in the sometimes average sometimes brilliant music at the Delhi edition of Bacardi NH7 Weekender Nothing deterred people from coming in droves for a fan friendly line-up So the AR Rahman set despite being an average gig drew more people than one saw at a Megadeth gig two years ago American rapper DJ and producer Flying Lotus albeit set on a smaller stage killed it with his fascinating sound and visuals; and Tipriti Kharbangar of Soulmate belted out some fantastic blues The duo from Mexican act Rodrigo y Gabriela slapped their Spanish guitars to perfection Mumbai-based Maati Baani helmed by Nirali Kartik had Hindustani vocals laced with electro beats while the Pakistani band Noori’s lead singers Ali Noor and Ali Hamza belted out some of their best hits awash with the buoyant pop-rock pulsating beats and electric riffs The change in the venue from Greater Noida to Dwarka came with some happiness due to metro connectivity But sound was a big problem as the stages were set up too close and a slew of artistes such as the Scottish act Hidden Orchestra complained about not being able to concentrate because of sound from the neighbouring stages Some acts ran late due to which people ended up missing gigs The last one hour on Sunday night was spent running from one stage to another balancing Flying Lotus and the Scottish post-rock band Mogwai The four-member band played a surreal set comprising some of their best-known tracks such as Rano pano and Auto rock among others A well-received performance Mogwai deserved a bigger crowd and a time slot that didn’t clash with another giant A big foam hand “We want Megadeth back” sealed some people’s position on asking for a famed metal band for this year We certainly missed a call from the mosh pit Talk picks a few interesting gigs: Mark Ronson Mark Ronson “I love you Delhi can we do this every week” screamed Mark Ronson in the microphone “Yes” they all cried in unison Ronson ensured there wasn’t a single dull moment during his set and that the dancing continued The English DJ-producer belted out a mix of R&B hip hop and pop tunes From Big Sean’s thumping number I don’t f*** with you to Rihanna’s latest hit B**** better have my money Ronson dropped predictable dance numbers In the middle of the set he played his most popular song till date — Uptown funk — which was the high point of the night There was in fact a moment when the sound of the crowd singing was louder than that coming from the sound system Just when you thought it couldn’t get better Ronson dropped a mix of Punjabi MC’s Mundian tu bach ke AR Rahman NH7 Weekender hasn’t seen chants as loud as the ones heard at the Rahman gig Most songs were sung along with; especially Dil se and Humdum The Mozart of Madras seemed pretty much at home behind the keys occasionally popping in the centre of the stage to sing Rehna tu and Nadaan parindey There were more problems than just not letting the audience have a piece of Humma and Roja Most singers including Rahman were out of tune at times making us realise that Rahman’s studio sound is class apart as compared to what one hears on stage The audience chanted and waited for the next track nonetheless Manish Sisodia guarded by almost 20 cops was also seen at the venue Ode to Nusrat Mogwai While Mogwai played a delectable
