ICC World T20 with an aim of achieving a specific target but the endeavour has always been to get the best out of the available resources Asked if he had expected at the start that England will qualify for the semi-finals Morgan said: "I don’t expect a great deal to be honest I don’t set expectations barriers or limitations It’s all about getting the best out of what we have and at the moment and we seem to be doing that If we do that from here on in we put ourselves in really good position" England Captain Eoin Morgan GettyImages Morgan is happy that the T20 unit has shown a lot of character in recent times by winning pressure games "It gives us a great deal of confidence I think in three of our wins we’ve had to show an immense amount of character having to chase down 230 (vs SA) and then against Afghanistan we put our backs against the wall early We had to fight quite hard "And today was completely different in the way we were way ahead of the game had them 4 down quite early and then Angelo (Mathews) got them back into the game It sort of asked a completely different question of us With the bat we adapted a lot better than we did against Afghanistan we showed we are capable of playing both smart cricket and aggressive cricket I think we’ve struggled to do that in the last six to eight months or so It’s an area we are constantly trying to improve But today we went a long way to doing that" a satisfied Morgan said "The first 15 overs that we batted we weren’t cautious but were on the smart side and given the value of having two in batsman for the last five or so overs the impact it can have with guys like Jos Buttler in and set had a big impact on the game" Morgan also admitted that it was advantageous to have already played a match at the Feroze Shah Kotla grounf where they are likely to take on the Black caps in the semi-final "The way I look at it is: their strength is spin our strength is seam It can be spin some days given conditions that’s what makes us so adaptable We bowl the majority of overs with seam or we can bowl 8 overs of spin maybe 12 if (Joe Root) Rooty comes on" he said "All the teams are at a level par regardless of what ground they play at" While the margin of win was only 10 runs againsr Sri Lanka last night Morgan said it was not as close as some of the other games "It wasn’t as edgy as other games we’ve played We’ve played in some tight games in the past You can be quite objective about things Chris Jordan in the 19th over bowled a brilliant ball that went for four runs and the next ball was a rubbish with which he got a wicket So I was able to go oh well that’s T20 that can happen And when I’m in that frame of mind I know I can make good decisions So today I was able to maintain that which is a good space to be in’ he said He had special praise for Ben Stokes who bowled four dot balls in the final over "They (Sri Lanka) were in the game right until the end so Ben Stokes’ last over was as crucial as it gets Angelo (Mathews) was as set as Jos (Butler) was during our innings and bowling to a batsman who is in form is so significant in a T20 game But Stokesy (Sotes) has done it before against Australia last year and has done it since then a couple of times And the character he showed today was brilliant" Morgan said "It gives us a huge lift Wickets are priceless at that stage of the game And given that it didn’t allow them to cross was a bigger benefit really But I think he (Stokes) allowed them to get one and then he bowled a dot to Angelo after that which was hugely significant" The next two days will be spent on introspection said Morgan "We’ll take a lot of confidence from today The overall performance can give us a couple of days to let the dust settle down reflect on what happened and take the absolute beauties into the semi-final" he concluded PTI Written by Express News Service | Published: June 8 2012 12:22 am Related News KAPURTHALA: A fire destroyed the upper deck of a double

“psychopath” He added the charge that a bureaucrat in his office was being investigated only because he had files proving that the Finance Minister presided over corrupt practices in Delhi’s cricketing board More cries of “resign resign resign” rent Delhi’s polluted air By the time you read this if the Gandhis succeed in rallying the troops there will be further hysterics to accompany their appearance in court The Modi government must prepare for an endless non-cooperation movement And get on with the task of governance There is much that needs urgent attention of which rebuilding the economy is the most urgent of all Unless it becomes genuinely easier to do business there is no chance of domestic investment picking up and unless this happens there is no chance of one million new jobs being created every month Instead of confronting this grim truth the Prime Minister appears to have lulled himself into a sense of false security It’s great that Japan is going to help build a bullet train and terrific that India is supposedly growing faster than any other country but as someone who remembers the atmosphere of the last boom I can confirm that there is no boom happening yet There is gloom And mixed signals from the government do not help You cannot ask Indian investors to take risks and begin investing if you announce that anyone spending more than Rs 2 lakh in a shop needs to produce a PAN card You cannot entrust your search for ‘black money’ to tax officials who are famously corrupt Ironically the only Indians with real black money are politicians Almost everyone else is only guilty of evading taxes on hard-earned money Only politicians and government employees get mysteriously rich without showing how their wealth was earned My point is that it is time that the Prime Minister called his economic ministers to a private meeting and read them a tough sermon He needs to ask many questions Where are the jobs being created How many stalled projects have started working again How much infrastructure has been built since he became Prime Minister How much have the Railways improved And finally if taxpayers are losing Rs 52 crore a day because of losses made by 53 companies then why are we not talking of privatisation yet Figures reported in The Times of India last week indicate that Air India and BSNL are bleeding most For a Prime Minister who campaigned on the slogan that it was not “the government’s business to do business” why has he not yet considered selling at least Air India As for making the investment climate better let him consult just his own loyal supporter Baba Ramdev who now heads a rapidly growing business empire In a recent interview this yoga guru said if the government cannot help entrepreneurs like him let it at least learn to not obstruct them All kinds of obstruction continue which is why no more than a handful of jobs have been created in the private sector since Modi took charge As a Gujarati who likes to say “I have money running in my veins” he needs to start getting very worried about the economic failures he has presided over Land laws and GST are far from being the only reforms needed Huge improvements in basic governance need to be made and if we want jobs to be created in the services sector then major improvements will need to be made in school education and healthcare These are state subjects but can BJP chief ministers not be guided towards better policies The point I am making is that if the economy and governance had really improved then no amount of hysteria from the Opposition parties would make the smallest difference It is because there is a general sense of economic gloom instead of the hoped for economic boom that there is enough resonance for people to be seriously worried Every time I write about economic issues in this column I get trolls on social media telling me that I have no idea about such things and should just shut up But the truth is that

Indian Express The MPCB is responsible for implementing various environmental legislations and plan programmes for the prevention control and abatement of pollution In its previous order passed in August last year the NGT had said that the post of the chairman of the state PCB is ‘of sensitivity and responsibility’ as the environmental status of the state would depend on the Board he is heading The tribunal added that many appointments to the post of chairperson were ‘ad-hoc’ temporary postings made as ‘stop-gap arrangements’ “The Tribunal cannot remain a silent spectator in respect of improper and illegal workings of PCB/committee and its consequences and repercussion to the public at large It is rather strange that despite more than sufficient time having been given by the Tribunal the aforesaid states did not take steps to implement the judgment passed by the Tribunal on 24th August 2016” the tribunal had said The NGT had given states including Maharashtra time till November 2016 to implement its previous order and appoint ‘qualified’ persons to the post Last month the NGT also issued show-cause notices to the states which had not implemented its order including Maharashtra In their replies the heads of the departments had justified their qualifications for the post The NGT however had said there was a requirement of educational qualification and experience for appointment to the post of the board chairperson including special knowledge and practical experience in environment protection It added that the person should essentially acquire such special knowledge after obtaining a post graduation in environmental sciences and environmental management or degree in engineering/technology in environmental engineering or an equivalent degree “As to know how some of the chairmen of the state pollution control boards are being manned without having requisite qualifications by bureaucrats politicians etc can be seen in the case of pollution control boards of the states of Uttarakhand Sikkim Rajasthan Maharashtra etc” the tribunal had said It added that the appointees to the posts in these states continue to be lacking in qualification or experience It said that despite providing ample time and opportunity these states have failed to comply “…We deem it just and proper and in the interest of public at large to order that the Chairman of…Maharashtra Pollution Control Board shall cease to function as chairman of the respective Pollution Control Board” the tribunal had said A senior state government official deemed the order to be ‘unfair’ pointing out that the state rules regarding the appointment for the post of chairperson continue to not have such requirements “The qualifications for the post of chairperson in the state boards is completely at the discretion of the state government If certain qualifications are required in the person holding the post it should be specified in the state rules which currently do not

thinking that the film couldn’t be made More from the world of Entertainment: Rajamouli said he had several doubts about whether the script was backed by enough research as he thought “none of us are equipped with the minimum knowledge about this emperor” Rajamouli also said he was very anxious about how the audience would take the film Apart from the script the director also wasn’t sure about Krish teaming with Balakrishna He had thought both of them were a “meticulously bad combination” to be working on the film However after watching Gautamiputra Satakarni Rajamouli said that Krish

You Thrashed Our Perception Dear Anjaniputra Krish I had the eye feast of watching your visual brilliance Gautamiputra Satakarni Last one week I am being possessed by memories of this special experience You being busy and engaged in success celebrations touring the United States I could not wait long in sharing my emotions with you So I decided to express all my inner feelings in your style and forwarding this letter through media ambassador Hope you will accept and read my representation Frankly speaking I have a confession to make before you I admire you as director for your sensibilities in Gamyam Vedam and Kanche But I never soaked up with news of you directing Balakrishna’s 100th film when media attentively grabbed my excitement I thought it was a gossip item because you are a filmmaker with endearment to select stories based on human life while Balakrishna is a hero with larger than life image I considered both of you as meticulously a bad combination Later I was startled when Gautamiputra Satakarni moved into pre production mode As an academician I had many doubts on Gautamiputra Satakarni story because none of us equipped with minimum knowledge about this emperor Except Nasik inscription we have no information about him You left me again go shocked I felt anxiously restless ruminating all the facts like when or where will your Satavahan research end and how far audience can accept your story about an unfamiliar king Meanwhile one more shock was waiting for me and Gautamiputra Satakarni progressed into production phase Morocco Georgia Maheshwaram in Madhya Pradesh… no rest no intervals; the stains of your devoted team work and firm resolution to wrap the shooting in 79 days increased my heart beat Innumerable horde of questions went through my

VFX works with an uncompromising quality Finally the time has come It was January 12th early morning premier show and I too was exhilarated like regular Nandamuri Balakrishna fans to watch Gautamiputra Satakarni Just two hours and you made me realise that every impossible event can be turned into a possible reality I journeyed deep into the annals of historical first century visiting Shaka Purushudu Sarvabhouma Satakarni because for me Balakrishna was never on the screen I cheered loud on every dialogue every scene like a standard Balakrishna fan as you discovered a new dimension in heroism A film which would have been pure historical documentary is transliterated into a historical commercial blockbuster Your predominantly screenplay based narrative made Telugu audience to twirl their moustache in pride Generally wars are filled with huge bloodshed and violence but there are amazing emotions in your war to hold the film strongly together Gautamiputra Satakarni is a neatly weaved visual grandeur with poetic elucidation of wonderfully written scenes Satavahana’s are a part of history You created history by making Gautamiputra Satakarni into a commercially viable

Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Dipti Nagpaul D’souza | New Delhi | Published: April 16 2017 12:00 am Bollywood Actor Vidya Balan talks about why her character in Begum Jaan is so angry Express photo by Prashant Nadkar 05th April 2017 Mumbai Related News In Begum Jaan you play the title role of a madam who refuses to budge from her brothel which falls in the way of the Indo-Pak border being drawn during Partition She is unapologetic about her profession and power Is that what appealed to you As she says in the film “Randi ko randi bolna bhi koi gaali hoti hai Police wale ko do toh shayad gaali hoti (If you call a whore a whore how is that abuse If you call a cop one maybe it is)” No woman chooses to be a prostitute; her circumstances must have led Begum Jaan to be one But she cannot be slut-shamed Since this is what she does she may as well play on the front foot Why is she so stubborn about not moving from the border Why does she put the other girls at risk What else do people like her have to hold on to No one has stood by her She was probably sold to a pimp and that’s how she became a prostitute When even her bodily space has been violated this physical space is all she can call ‘mine’ And ‘physical space’ can be very personal Countries go to war for it Everyone is territorial She knows these girls will come and go she understands their pain but she isn’t a mother She is not asking anyone to stay and fight She says ‘This place is mine and I will fight for it’ How territorial are people in the film industry Does someone like you who has earned acclaim also have to fight for her space Everyone is negotiating to keep their space all the time not just as an actor but also as an individual a woman When I married Siddharth (Roy Kapur) people would ask me if he has a say in the films I do I’d have to explain that I don’t tell him what films to produce and he doesn’t decide what films I act in Even the most powerful women find the need to negotiate their position They are torn between conditioning and playing by patriarchal rules in order to survive in a patriarchal setup For instance I get asked how I balance home and work But no one asks my husband that Recently when Siddharth and I came back from a holiday he didn’t have to bother to check if the kitchen is stocked but I did No one asked me to do it but I did; that is conditioning If I ask Siddharth to take charge he will probably tell me we have a cook for that job But as a woman I will still feel I need to supervise the cook You pick strong women protagonists in films — Silk in The Dirty Picture Krishna in Ishqiya or Durga Rani Singh in the Kahaani series What’s the common thread that runs through all of them They are all well-rounded women which invariably makes them strong I am not interested in playing diabetically sweet women who are unreal Or even just badass characters Maybe they are both maybe they are more of one than the other But I want to play real people who have their flaws issues aggression and passion I like to know people’s stories and I like to tell such stories on screen Strong women don’t have to be alike The Durga I play in Kalimpong in Kahaani 2 is quiet and withdrawn But Begum Jaan is nothing like Durga Durga wanted to be invisible Begum Jaan is unmissable You don’t want to play ‘sweet’ characters Ironically that’s the public persona you have (Laughs) I have a lot in common with the characters I play on screen There’s a lot of angst in me as a person and as a woman I get angry very easily My family will tell you I am short-tempered I get angry if I am taken for granted if people misbehave with others if they don’t treat another individual as equal… Maybe I am thin-skinned because I am an actor I allow things to affect me Where is this anger rooted For instance the criticism I received all those years My sister would ask me why I’m being so zen about it but I now realise I was probably internalising it I was also young — I joined the industry at 26 when other actors arrived at a younger age I wanted people to like me because I also had to make up for the years I had lost Over time I have been shedding all those layers and coming into my own and the roles I play have a great deal to do with it The first time you spoke up was after Heyy Baby when you pointed out the pressures of looking glamorous on and off the screen When I look back I see it was more about what I wanted to do as an actor In the years since I have not taken up any role I don’t want to Is that why your characters are so angry Yes I get to channel it in the films But it’s not just anger at the industry At home I was always made to believe I am special But as a fat child when you step into the real world people start attaching tags Then while growing up you want to be liked and try to shed all that weight you try to be a certain kind of person When you become an actor many more people are watching you which makes you more cautious Acting has helped me come into my own every time It’s probably why I choose such characters to channel the part of me that felt rejected You have also spoken against being fat-shamed It doesn’t happen as often anymore perhaps because now I am married People associate thin with being desirable which you need to be till you are married which I now am But I still get to hear it sometimes To them I’d like to point out the tag line of Begum Jaan: ‘My body my rules’ While making choices did you deal with the insecurity of becoming irrelevant as an actor So I don’t drive Not that I don’t know how to but I am the kind of person who will let loose once I am behind the wheel And that’s what happens at work as well Once I make a decision I don’t hold back Luckily it’s okay to do that in films but not on the road My family too has helped me been my strong support system told me I have nothing to fear if I do the right things and give it my all You have always credited your family and the neighbourhood you grew up in Chembur for where you are today I grew up in a typical Tamil household a protected environment in a middle-class neighbourhood Even at my lowest I could always come home to my family and feel special That life is beyond being an actor Until 15 I didn’t step out of Chembur Even today on a bad day I like to drive through the leafy lanes of that neighbourhood and visit the Sai Baba mandir The people I grew up around were never enamoured by stars but by art They have kept me rooted How do you view your career now given that the last three films have not worked at the box office But the range of roles has only been widening Eight years ago when I started doing characters like in Ishqiya the industry wasn’t making as many female-centric films Today there are more such films and more actors doing these films Of course my last few films haven’t done well and I’ve been heartbroken but I have moved on Box-office success or failure today hardly indicates if a film is good or not A film that doesn’t do well in theatres may fare excellently on TV Even social media which people seem to swear by these days can be misleading Also read:Begum Jaan movie review: Vidya Balan tries to invest some feeling into her role which soon turnsclichéd How much has the industry changed in the 15 years you have been here There may be more women-centric films but the dynamics are still skewed and male star-driven Most of the money invested by the makers goes in their fee But yes people today are open to all kinds of stories genres and treatment Many women actors have raised their voices to demand equal pay as their male contemporaries Is that a battle you have to fight as well No because I hardly work with male stars I ask for a certain fee especially since the budget of the films I do is also limited But if the makers tell me they cannot make the film if they pay me that amount I tell them don’t make it then So now people don’t use that excuse with me anymore Do you feel films with big stars may not have characters for you Absolutely It is why I don’t do those kind of films I don’t even get offered those anymore For
