voluble candidate as prime minister Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaks frequently tweets extensively and writes sparingly No one is surprised when he seizes the occasion and speaks It is only when he ignores the occasion and withdraws into silence that questions are raised Here are a few samples of his silence: VYAPAM: That is the acronym for the Professional Examination Board in Madhya Pradesh where a BJP government has been in office since 2003 Examinations were fixed for many years The scandal was exposed in 2013 by a whistleblower After many legal battles the case was transferred to the CBI Meanwhile 40 persons connected with the case (witnesses investigating officers accused) have met with unnatural deaths Whistleblowers and activists have received multiple threats In any other case the scandal would have unseated the chief minister but Mr Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s government survives The Prime Minister is the silent fox It is his silence that keeps Mr Chouhan in office Lalit Modi: He is the former boss of the IPL and is wanted in India for questioning He fled to the United Kingdom where a friendly government bent the rules to give him refuge (even while hundreds of Indians who do not hold a valid passport are routinely deported) The Chief Minister of Rajasthan endorsed Mr Lalit Modi’s plea for being allowed to stay in the UK and requested that her letter may not be disclosed to the Indian authorities The External Affairs Minister supported his case for a UK travel document after her ministry cancelled his passport Mr Lalit Modi thumbs his nose at the Indian investigative agencies and holidays around the world travelling on a UK passport The Prime Minister is the silent saviour of his minister and the chief minister Wages of intolerance Kalburgi Dabholkar and Pansare: One was an atheist Another campaigned against superstition The third portrayed the warrior-king Shivaji as a secular ruler They were murdered and the investigating agencies suspect there are common features in the three cases Eminent writers voiced their protest by returning the awards given to them by the Sahitya Akademi The Prime Minister was unconcerned and maintained a stoic silence The literary world felt humiliated Rohith Vemula: “My birth is my fatal accident” wrote the Dalit PhD scholar Rohith Vemula before he took his own life Campuses erupted in protest It turned into a familiar battle between the ‘entitled’ and the ‘disentitled’ The Central government tried to prove that Rohith was not a Dalit No one so far has been held responsible or accountable for his death The Prime Minister remained a silent spectator The disentitled are gripped by fear Akhlaq: Akhlaq was lynched by a mob who believed that he had stored beef in his home A bizarre inquiry was launched not into the lynching but into the nature of the animal meat Political leaders spoke in favour of the mob communal tensions were aroused and the Prime Minister’s studied silence invited comment When he appeared to have decided to break his silence it was only to deliver a homily on how Hindus and Muslims should fight poverty and not each other On Akhlaq’s killing he has maintained a studied silence Clumsy manoeuvres Jawaharlal Nehru University: Suddenly it was discovered that JNU was filled with anti-nationals Barring members of the ABVP every JNU student was presumed to be an anti-national unless he proved his nationalism by raising the slogan ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ Police slapped sedition charges on students lawyers roughed up journalists on the court’s premises the university rusticated student leaders and the Prime Minister erected a wall of silence between himself and the tumult outside The Pathankot attack: Barely days after the Prime Minister made an impromptu visit to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s home in Lahore six terrorists attacked the Air Force Station at Pathankot It was revealed that the government had received intelligence about the threat but mishandled it The government’s clumsy attempt to forge a ‘deal’ on reciprocal investigation came a cropper Pakistan sent its team to Pathankot brazenly denied it got any evidence from the Indian agencies and delivered a lethal snub by rejecting their request for a reciprocal visit to Pakistan The Prime Minister’s response was grave silence Atrocities on Dalits: The false promise of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’ is unravelling Atrocities on Dalits are a fact of Indian life The Una incident exposed the right-wing Hindutva brigade’s hypocrisy exploitation and arrogance The Prime Minister has observed a silence that is deafening even amidst the uproar Duty to speak In the 2014 elections the Indian voter was swayed by the eloquence of Mr Narendra Modi Not many have cultivated the art of public speaking as Mr Modi has Is he now cultivating the art of public silence I readily concede that a prime minister is not required to speak on every occasion or on every subject but when there is a duty to speak silence is unacceptable Silence can be a strategy silence can be a tactic but silence can never be an answer to the ills of our polity and the fault lines of our society When an eloquent and willing-to-speak prime minister deliberately chooses not to speak decent citizens will be concerned students will demand answers Muslims will feel alienated and Dalits will feel threatened All of those do not augur well Website: pchidambaramin @Pchidambaram_IN For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Sakshi Dayal | Gurgaon |

an unusual source of employment — at a software company Amit Mishra 32 who runs the company and hails from Gorakhpur was once an inmate himself — under trial in connection with a case regarding his wife’s death who committed suicide After 13 months behind bars Mishra who was a software engineer was acquitted in 2014 He is now the founder of Invader Technologies a software company in Gurgaon’s DLF Phase II which was set up in June 2015 It designs software for companies in various fields including education and healthcare Its prime focus however is prison software which Mishra first became

be given this badge of honour It was created by Mishra along with the help of a handful of other inmates Harinder Singh the superintendent at Bhondsi jail says the software has helped “staff prisoners

finisher and also claimed that finishing a game for his side give him satisfaction In an interview with Firstpost Raina said that this role was not a challenge for him and rather it was a responsibility “It’s not difficult I would say it’s more of your responsibility When you bat down the order it always gives you a chance to be a hero for the Indian team And I have done that for so many years I have done that in the IPL (Indian Premier League) and in first class cricket I think it’s my role to do it When you are batting at No 6 you have to perform When you go in at a crucial time and finish the game it always gives you satisfaction in your mind I became a more responsible person You feel that responsibility about you which is the best thing Raina said” Speaking about the feeling while playing in the middle Raina said “You need to read the situation You need to read the circumstances How many runs you are chasing (if) are you chasing nine per over or 12 per over It starts from over one – how you plan how many (runs) you are chasing With the new rules coming up you need to plan which bowler to target and which one to not take risk against You need to learn how to bat with tailenders because you need to take all the pressure and absorb it yourself I like playing under pressure because I have always delivered and there is a different sense of security” At times the situation of the match is delicate Raina elaborated on this and said “You need to understand the situation what target your are chasing and plan accordingly The most important thing is what mindset you are going in with in which over and against what opposition So you already visualise while reading the game sitting in the dressing room When you sit inside the dressing room you analyse follow what the captains are doing out on the field You then prepare plan A and if that doesn’t work then have plan B ready I already choose the bowlers whom I have to attack If there are five fielders inside the circle then I know my areas where to hit I know where I will hit a particular bowler I have already played 223 ODIs and all that experience comes in handy” “You need to feel the pressure and then absorb that pressure sitting in the dug out You need to know what your plan will be The moment you go in you feel like expressing yourself Because you need to enjoy yourself while playing cricket” he concluded For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsBy: PTI | Los Angeles | Published: September 1 2015 2:57 pm
