Eight months after the Supreme Court lifted the 2005 state governments ban on dance bars in the city several bar employees who were rendered unemployed for close to a decade will exercise their right to vote with caution Bar dancers who have been largely unemployed since 2005 are now looking forward to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections hoping that a new government will help bar owners lift their shutters once again Despite the Supreme Court having struck down the ban that reeked of moral policing in July 2013 the state government is still contemplating its further stand “The apex court passed a verdict to re-open the dance bars last year but Patil refused to lift the ban” said Swati (28) a former bar dancer who worked at an Andheri (East) bar Swati is among hundreds of former bar dancers who stay out of a settlement in Malwani The women feel that the government is not interested in providing them livelihood State home minister RR Patil had banned dance bars in 2005 Meanwhile the Indian Hotel and Restaurant Association is regularly conducting internal meetings with over 27000 restaurant owners in Mumbai keeping in mind the upcoming 2014 elections “We are by and large looking at the candidates in the eight constituencies It is not just the party but the candidates whom we are approaching this upcoming elections The previous experiences have taught the association a lesson We are demanding that they should abide by the ruling of the Supreme Court It should not be made a personal vendetta The association feels that with some members of the ruling party politicians too supporting the lifting of the ban it is difficult to look at only the party” AHAR President Arvind Shetty said Prabha Desai who runs an NGO to rehabilitate bar girls said that the issue of ban on bars is being treated as a “prestige issue” in the election campaigning But she is not hopeful on the issue from BJP either “BJP had opposed the decriminalizing of homosexuality so we are not sure whether they would support reopening of dance bars” says Desai adding that the party would not like to be seen with conflicting “moral” views The dance bar committee the nodal affiliated with Indian Association of Hotels And Restaurants also also seems to be looking forward to the elections Anil Gaikwad legal advisor to the committee said that by continuing the ban the government it is loosing on a large amount of revenue money “We have to pay several taxes The government have increased the licenses of liquor from Rs 380 lakh to Rs 545 lakh from March which we suspect will be used for election campaigning” claimed Gaikwad adding “Why can’t the government lift the ban” Gaikwad said the Shiv Sena and the BJP had promised them that they would open all entertainment outlets “We had moved a sessions court charging the government for contempt as they have continued the ban inspite the SC verdict The sessions court had asked us to file individual petitions following which we have filed over 100 petitions in the apex court The cases will be heared next week before which we will hold a meeting of the association” he said Bar owners seemed to be more vocal Ganesh Rai owner of a Chembur bar said “We are not in any mood to support a political party but we now need change for our business to survive The state government has levied maximum taxes and despite the Supreme Court order to

for someone to take some load off of its Press Secretary Sean Spicer after his performance in the briefing room disappointed US President Donald Trump a media report said on Wednesday Representational image AP According to a CNN report on Tuesday the White House is now in search of a communications director a position currently held by Spicer along with the post of White House Press Secretary Citing multiple sources CNN said Trump has expressed dislike for Spicer’s performance in the first two weeks of the administration and hence the search for a new Communications Director was launched Spicer went off to a rocky start with the press after angrily accusing it of covering news incorrectly In his first appearance as Press Secretary Spicer said the media deliberately tried to paint Trump in a negative colour Xinhua news agency reported He tried to make good with jokes and offered more question opportunities during later press briefings but never managed to stitch together the cracks that had developed Spicer was called out by the media multiple times for giving out false facts and found himself cornered on many occasions trying to defend some of Trump’s controversial remarks Saturday Night Live a famous US comedy show drew nationwide attention after it ran a sketch in which actress Melissa McCarthy delivered an unflattering portrayal of Spicer The episode heightened Trump’s worries that Spicer may not be well suited to be the image of the administration CNN reported Spicer himself on Monday shrugged off speculations that he was shaken by the satire saying the McCarthy bit was too exaggerated Spicer was not Trump’s initial choice for the job but secured the position with the backing of close ally Reince Priebus Trump’s Chief of Staff reports said Written by Samantak Das | Published: December 24 2016 1:08 am Memoirs of Roads: Calcutta from Colonial Urbanization to Global Modernization Top News Book name: Memoirs of Roads: Calcutta from Colonial Urbanization to Global Modernization Author: Sumanta Banerjee Publisher: Oxford University Press Pages: 186 Price: 695 Calcutta (Kolkata) is the locus that unifies Sumanta Banerjee’s oeuvre a terrain he finds endlessly fascinating and endlessly rewarding Like a lover so besotted by the beloved’s multitudinous quirks and quibbles that s/he cannot help circling back time and time again to explore the beloved’s many mysteries Banerjee keeps returning to the city of his birth to probe — yet again — some part of her inexhaustible mystique And we should be grateful for it For well over three decades now Banerjee has been chronicling those bits of the city that remain beyond the ken of the average English-educated Kalkattawallah From In the Wake of Naxalbari (1980) and the Thema Book of Naxalite Poetry (1987) to The Parlour and the Streets: Elite and popular culture in nineteenth-century Calcutta a couple of years later Banerjee has performed the task of educating and entertaining us with meticulously researched and engagingly presented accounts of times peoples and places that are integral to why we are what we are but which remain hidden from view — because they are either embarrassing to our sense of self or considered to be of marginal significance or both Thus his Dangerous Outcast: The prostitute in nineteenth-century Bengal (1998) brought this particular variety of humanity and the socio-ecological niche occupied by her into the limelight after having been consigned to darkest limbo by bhadralok society while The Wicked City: Crime and Punishment in Colonial Calcutta (2009) revelled in exploring the worlds of the killers house-breakers thieves swindlers pilferers forgers embezzlers smugglers gamblers drug dealers poisoners and other cognate colourful characters who slunk (not always noiselessly) through the underbelly of what used to take pride in being the “Second City of Empire” In his latest offering instead of his usual cast of weird and wonderful humans Banerjee’s focus is on the spaces they inhabit although here too he cannot help drawing a parallel between mere (physical) locale and more evocative (human) bonds The three roads that are the subject of his book are seen as “the grandmother (Bagbazar Street) a matriarch spreading her progeny of lanes and by-lanes” and the “midwife (Theatre Road) bringing to birth a hybrid lifestyle and architecture [bearing] the signature of the colonial era” while the third (Rashbehari Avenue) “can be likened to the growing up of a middle-class Bengali housewife gingerly stepping out into the limelight of modern society” In his sometimes meandering sometimes dead-straight-ahead but never boring narrative Banerjee animates the once-glorious now-decrepit city in strange and striking ways Here’s Banerjee quoting his diary to animate that quintessentially Calcutta phenomenon the temporary bustees on major thoroughfares that house by some estimates about 30 per cent of the city’s denizens: “At midnight as I walk down the paths of neon-lit glittering Park Street-Theatre Road where the bars and restaurants are still alive… it is now time for another Kolkata to come alive…men and women old and young drag out their belongings…hidden during the day…they lay [these] down on the pavements — plastic sheets discarded packing-case hardboards piles of newspapers or even vermin-eaten rags…these masses of heterogeneous families remain outside the boom of IT centres and shopping malls…[serving] the same old daily needs that the city’s underclasses have been serving for centuries” The reader will find much to be educated and amused by in this wonderfully picturesque work such as for example that Rashbehari Avenue that bastion of bhadralok propriety was originally called Main Sewer Road much to its dwellers’ discomfort who successfully petitioned the colonial sarkar bahadur to name it after that paradigm of middle-class success the High Court advocate in this case Sir Rashbehari Ghosh Memoirs of Roads is not content to merely recount the past however colourfully for Banerjee takes a stab at crystal-ball gazing in his concluding chapter subtitled “Towards a Future Megalopolis” where the question-mark takes on a somewhat ominous significance For Banerjee whose sympathies have always been with the deprived and dispossessed the creation of “a safe and walled megacity to feed the economic and social appetite of the new generation of beneficiaries of the neo-liberal economic order” is no cause for celebration In these planned places “roads lose their traditional role as a public space for citizens” and the urban commons like the Lakes off Rashbehari Avenue or parks on Theatre Road or the water tank in College Square are replaced by newly-demarcated pleasure spots — “golf courses swimming pools hotel chains and shopping malls…exclusively built and reserved for these residents” Call it the new apartheid based on money not melanin

Starting on Tuesday in Rabat stakeholders from across the sport including an array of former stars like Abedi Pele Austin Okocha and Samuel Eto’o have been invited to deliberate over the future of the tournament and other aspects of the African game New Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Ahmad promised a blanket review when he successfully challenged long-standing leader Issa Hayatou for the top CAF job in March Ahmad who uses only a single name also wants to review rules on hosting the finals which are proving increasingly prohibitive and reducing the number of potential candidates He has already suggested co-hosting that would allow CAF to consider proposals to increase the number of teams at the finals to 24 – almost half the organisation’s membership The frequency of the tournament would also be reviewed although there seems little appetite to change it from every two years to every four Hosting the tournament every two years in January means the leading players drawn increasingly from clubs in major European leagues face a tug of war for their services caught between duty for their national team and clubs that employ them Ahead of this year’s tournament held in Gabon there was an unprecedented number of players who turned down call-ups to stay with their clubs Those numbers are expected to rise if the next finals in Cameroon are hosted in January 2019 rather than a more convenient mid-year slot Hayatou persistently refused to entertain any change because he did not want to be seen to be buckling to pressure from European clubs He blamed inclement weather patterns in Africa for not holding the Nations Cup in mid-year but this argument was forgotten when only African countries bid to host the 2010 World Cup The Rabat symposium
