'Cricketainment' will be back once again (Column: Close-in)
The postponement of the T20 World Cup gave BCCI the opportunity to conduct their most popular 'cricketainment' tournament -- the Indian Premier League (IPL). Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has made it impossible to stage cricket's premium show in India. The BCCI have, therefore, opted to hold it in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with the blessing of the Emirates Cricket Board.

Calypso & reggae and not cricket is all that's left in WI (Column: Close-in)
The two most popular sports teams in the world were Brazil in football and the West Indies in cricket. The flair, subtleness, skill and natural talent of their players was what made them special. The artistry and attitude of playing positive even in the most dire state got them the adulation and respect in a win as well as in defeat.

Importance of technology in Indian agriculture (Opinion)
Indian civilisation is one of oldest civilisations in the world and similarly Indian agriculture is also of the same age. Ancient Indian farmers were quite rich because agriculture was the most advanced and prestigious occupation of that time. Fifty per cent of the population is still dependent on agriculture and occupations related to agriculture.

A faltering Erdogan falls back on Islamism for brownie points (Comment)
Saint Sophia museum in Istanbul being reverted into a mosque has brought back, like a powerful refrain, that couplet of Mir Taqi Mir which has been an emotional crutch for me on such occasions. For instance, when I visited the great Cordoba mosque built in Southern Spain in 786 AD and which was converted in 1236 into a live Church.

Ordinances to transform agriculture sector
For a very long time, reforms in agriculture marketing have been debated, but no decisive action had been taken. It required leadership and political will to unshackle the farmers from the vice-like grip of intermediaries who take away a large slice of farmers' income by resorting to cartelisation and unfair arbitrage.

Finally, cricket has arrived once again (Column: Close-in)
The England versus West Indies first Test match in Southampton finally brought cricket to the forefront once more. The Test match was a thriller with the West Indies finally chasing the runs and coming out victorious on the final day of the game. However, England to me, has also come out as a winner. They showed that cricket can still be played even in these difficult times of COVID-19.

Leaders need a makeover (Comment)
The silence of impatient guns on the border and the sighs of the jobless is an ominous and nervous combination taking shape across the world. It's a wake up call that the polity is going wrong. Leaders across the world are falling short as country after country is being let down by them. Whether it's the health crisis, the growing social conflicts, economic crisis or border tensions, economies are in severe distress. The looming uncertainty and possible food insecurity must alert us of the serious situation. We are floundering in a vicious deprivation of ethics, lack of values or even a stable vision. If you look closely, the one common denominator that cuts across different cultures and politics is the quality of leaders.

Vikas Dubey saga: Reflecting on Lucknow's badmen in nicer times
The manner of Vikas Dubey's murder (encounter) would cause Joey the child in awe of Shane played by Alan Ladd to scream: "That's not fair -- I hate you." A kneejerk response to the Dubey saga would lead nowhere without picking up the thread of a perennially unjust system of which the police are the chosen cat's paw. It reflects on the rottenness of the system that the real puppeteers, who pull the strings, seek to heap the odium exclusively on the police.

Digital play with Indian business models (Column: Behind Infra Lines)
The last decade has seen rapid digitisation. However, the last three months have seen the pace of digitisation accelerate rapidly. Even as the world adjusts to a new normal, the ability to leverage digitisation to improve, create and innovate business models will be vital in deciding the winners of the future. In India, in this context, the two issues that assume significant importance are business models that can monetise user bases using transactions and the ability of technological solutions to create disruptors and opportunities in previously unexplored corners.

Kashmir: Geelani didn't quit, he was dumped by Pak (Comment)
New Delhi, July 9 (IANS) Syed Ali Shah Geelani, the patriarch of the pro-Pakistan separatist movement in Kashmir, quit the All Parties Hurriyat Conference. That was the impression that his parting letter sought to give, but hidden somewhere was the fact that Pakistan terminated his services. He was dumped because he was old, unwell, bickering with his own separatist colleagues and was not fitting into Pakistan's new scheme of things vis-a-vis Kashmir.

India set for breaking new space horizons (Comment)
India has taken a historic stride towards opening up its space sector for private participation with the creation of IN-SPACe. I have met many exuberant youngsters in the past with eyes set on space who unfortunately could not walk through the system in the absence of a transparent policy framework. The initiative of our Hon'ble Prime Minister in bringing in a 'new space regime' has laid a solid foundation for India to multiply its capabilities in space by several fold. This new body would play a role of a guide for space entrepreneurs. Existing policies are being suitably tweaked to become more accommodative and inclusive, and less ambiguous. This makes it easier for the companies to obtain licenses and participate in end-to-end space activities.

Of diplomacy and defence (Column: Spy's Eye)
The Chinese muscle flexing on LAC over months culminated into the horrific killing of twenty Indian soldiers by PLA in Galwan valley of Eastern Ladakh on June 15, in the backdrop of an ongoing consultation between the Army commanders of the two sides on the situation in that segment as also a long standing higher level liaison between the Special Representatives of the two countries. The development brought into focus the need for a stronger display of military and diplomatic strength by India in dealing with a recalcitrant China and led the opposition leaders as well as many military experts to raise questions of operational and strategic handling of India-China relations.

A delusion that our lives were better during the Cold War? (Comment)
Pictures of unrelieved despair everywhere on TV and, that too, in the course of an extended house arrest (lockdown), does leave one, to use Faiz's words, with "pain where the heart once was". Heaven knows there were problems then too, but in these days of stress, I reflect on the period of the Cold War with an almost irreparable sense of loss. The period spanned my childhood, between my village and Lucknow, school, college, employment at The Statesman, The Indian Express, with papers in London, Boston and Salem, Massachusetts. All of this experience was without religion ever being an obstacle in the three continents where I worked. During my spell at Salem, my wife and I lived in nearby Marblehead where we were much pampered members of the prestigious North Shore Jewish Community Centre, something unthinkable in the post 9/11 Islamophobia.

It is interesting that both the US and India have apparently chosen a similar strategy of economic revival by way of relaxing the Corona lockdown even when the fight against the pandemic was still on. The logic is sound. Everybody now understands the nature of the virus and the essence of how individuals -- this being a people's fight now -- could avoid crossing the Corona's path by following the discipline of social distancing, use of mask and recourse to hand wash against a suspect surface touch.
