From the print editionDue to the weather phenomenon El Niño, Costa Rica’s rainy season will be one of the driest in years, according to weather experts. The National Meteorological Institute (IMN) announced this week that the final six months of the year will be drier than average in most of the country. The most significant decrease in precipitation will occur in the Central Valley and the northern Pacific coast. Only the Caribbean coast will see an increase in wet conditions. The El Niño climate pattern has been expected to build in 2012. Meteorologists said in recent weeks that the pattern, which causes a heating of the Pacific Ocean’s surface, is going from a “neutral stage” to an active one. The result means less rain and hotter temperatures for the Pacific coast.“These conditions will be maintained for at least the next three months,” said IMN meteorologist Eladio Solano. Solano said he expects some slight variations in El Niño’s behavior, but overall the phenomenon will bring higher temperatures and little rain to the Pacific, Central Valley and Northern Zone until the rainy season ends in November. By contrast, the Caribbean may see a surplus of precipitation of 20 percent above average. El Niño also is associated with a decrease in hurricanes on the region’s Atlantic coast. So far, four tropical storms have formed at a frightening speed this year. Meteorologists predict that El Niño will slow the formation of hurricanes in upcoming months, during the peak of hurricane season. Experts predict 13 tropical storms or hurricanes in total for the 2012 season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.While hurricanes rarely cause major damage in Costa Rica, increased heat could harm farmers on the Pacific coast. The Central American Agricultural Council on Tuesday alerted regional authorities about El Niño in the area and its potential effects on agriculture and livestock. The northwestern province of Guanacaste is already the driest part of the country, and the IMN predicts 20 percent less rain for that region. Rainfall could drop by 15 percent in the Central Valley and 10 percent on the central Pacific coast. The Northern Zone and southern Pacific will see only slight drops in precipitation.According to Erick Quirós, an expert at the Agriculture and Livestock Ministry, the change in weather conditions could cause economic problems for the sector, and ministry officials are developing a contingency plan to help mitigate damage.Reports said that the meteorological center at Juan Santamaría International Airport outside of San José recorded in the first half of the year the third-driest temperatures in the last three decades.In the first 10 days of July, Solano said, the Central Valley and Guanacaste experienced 50 percent less rainfall than normal.“These figures could be maintained throughout the month and even during the first days of August,” Solano added.Still, he said, El Niño will not make Costa Rica’s rainy season into an arid, desert-like atmosphere. When rain does fall, it will be more intense than average, and could lead to flooding, landslides and other problems related to downpours. These sporadic rains are brought on by trade winds known as the “Pacific breeze,” Solano said.The meteorologist said residents of the Caribbean region need to watch out for flooding and take cautions to remain safe during heavy rains.

team have to fully engage Selecting Admiral Harry Harris the outgoing commander of US Pacific Command as the new US Ambassador to South Korea instead of to Australia as had been the plan is a superb

give up all his nuclear weapons While I believe we should accept a limited arsenal with an inspection regime and a diminution of the ballistic missiles to deliver them if we are not going to do so (which President Trump has said already) we should be prepared to walk away from the table That said we do not need to rush away We will need to be patient We will not have a few more handshakes and photo-ops and then all part as friends Kim will more than likely continue to operate from the playbook of his father and grandfather before him: get the West excited about peace extract concessions then either walk away or hide the remnants of the program If "yes" truly means zero nuclear weapons on the peninsula getting there will probably require a multi-year negotiation and an even longer

prove his manhood by denigrating any woman who dares question him and even call one of his opponents a "pussy" while the rest of us natter on about the role of gender and identity in the context of

boorish and sexist His Megyn Kelly meltdowns his claim that Clinton got "schlonged" by Barack Obama those help build a pretty convincing case But calling Ted Cruz a "pussy" is a new low in combination sexism-vulgarity from a candidate many thought couldnt get any lower More accurately he repeated delightedly a female fans accusation that Cruz is a “pussy” which kinda-sorta-not-really helps Trump maintain plausible deniability a "pussy” move if ever there was The message Trump sent is loud and clear: Im a real man Ted Cruz is like a woman and being like a woman is undesirable weak pathetic and bad His supporters roared Its ludicrous of course that this word remains an insult lobbed between straight men who presumably like the things well enough Its also an inaccurate synonym for "weak" given that vaginas themselves are pretty sturdy and resilient as far as human orifices go But we know Trump or the swarms of people who regularly use the word as an insult arent talking about vaginas

Reuters) Top News Karolina Pliskova began her reign as world number one with a ragged 6-3 6-3 second round win over Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova on a blockbuster Wednesday when eight of the top 10 ranked players were in action at the Rogers Cup Pliskova playing in her first tournament since her shock second round defeat at Wimbledon struggled with a misfiring first serve and was guilty of some lapses in concentration However the lanky Czech was never seriously threatened as she disposed her 19th ranked Russian opponent in a tidy 70 minutes “I had a little bit (of nerves) before the match but during the match I felt much better especially at the end” Pliskova said in a courtside interview “I think it was not the best tennis from my side but I was trying to improve in the match I’m definitely happy I am through to the next round the first match is always tough” Both sets followed a similar pattern Pliskova surging to a 5-1 lead in the first and 3-0 in second A loss of focus allowed Pavlyuchenkova to break and hold serve to trim the deficits But Pliskova snapped out of her brief funks each time and clinched her first win as number one with her seventh break A star-studded

News That could be Mumbai’s tagline punchline and faultline For nothing drives or drags unites or divides voters in this great city as the endless struggle for space You see it in Milind Deora’s campaign as he peddles his premium product — himself And in Medha Patkar’s anger as she talks of inequality in a slum under a forest of branded air-conditioners It’s been a decade since Kolkata ceded to Mumbai its pre-eminence in globalising popular culture and serious literature From Suketu Mehta (Maximum City) to Katherine Boo (Behind the Beautiful Forevers) through Gregory David Roberts’s Shantaram and Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire Mumbai is our most studied psychoanalysed romanticised and feared city Interludes of scams (Adarsh) and terror (26/11 besides the many serial bombings) haven’t helped Yet for all the literature that you could borrow wisdom from and all the movies for stereotypes to lean on Mumbai is a political journalist’s nightmare Particularly when in the throes of its most intensely fought election ever Send me out to read the writings on the wall in the Hindi heartland and I promise you a quick turnaround and a head full of stories You think that cowbelt politics is complex But it has its short-cuts and set algebra geometry and patterns “Brahmin Thakur Bhumihar eastern UP-western Bihar and throw in some Scheduled Castes and Muslims” said a teachers’ union leader at Banaras Hindu University where I had gone to cover a strike in 1983 and got instead a tutorial in UP-Bihar politics delivered at the speed of today’s FM radio jockeys Try applying any of that to Mumbai at election time You can add the Marathi Manoos the south Indians even the Parsis for diversity But any conventional political calculus won’t work here Because it defies every set convention even for complex cities I shout at Milind Deora trying to catch his attention on top of his campaign truck as it travels from Geeta Nagar to Ganesh Murti Nagar in the sprawling slum abutting the mangroves on the Cuffe Parade seafront on one side a naval residential colony — high walls barbed wire fences watch-towers armed guards — on the other and overlooked by the most infamous abandoned building in India’s recent history: Adarsh “What is the voter mix here” I want to know “How many Muslims bhaiyyas (as UP-Bihar wallahs are called) and Maharashtrians” Impossible to tell” he says “Mumbai cannot be understood like that” He says he is appealing to no category of voters in particular “These are smart voters” he says “they will vote for the best product on offer… they are not like voters in other places uncle” Which gives me the excuse to bring out of the closet an old story shared between his family and mine I have said for years that I can never figure out his father Murli because my son addressed him by his first name when he first met him as a 9-year-old and my chairman (Viveck Goenka) calls him uncle Young Milind has never suffered from any such confusion at his end The “product” he puts on offer is himself as a double-incumbent MP In Maharashtra as in Delhi or Haryana this isn’t an election where Congress people seek votes for their party’s achievements Milind knows that he is the party’s most winnable candidate in Mumbai particularly with the BJP having conceded the seat to the Shiv Sena which means that there is also an MNS candidate to divide those against him Besides he has to contend with the AAP’s Meera Sanyal But even his rivals acknowledge that he offers a good product He has worked hard in the undercity of his constituency and his parents’ old network of goodwill friendship and IOUs have left the South Mumbai upper crust in a dilemma: they so desperately want Narendrabhai as prime minister but cannot bear the thought of voting against Milind beta “Milind wasn’t entirely honest in declaring his assets” said one prominent corporate leader illustrating his own dharamsankat “He did not mention the number and names of influential South Mumbai notables his father counts among his bridge partners” But Milind has the ballast of his own performance as well Point to any corner of his constituency and he can tell you a story about it mostly what he has done for it “This road” he says pointing to the approximately 300 metres of thin tar trail that we drive on “was built by me” Until then there was no road here and people had to trudge for an hour through rocks to connect with the rest of the city and that too mostly during low tide hours And the road couldn’t be built because the navy had to give permission and you know how tough that is So he arm-twisted (my expression not his) AK Antony into giving the clearances and then even got BEST to start a bus service to Geeta Nagar It is too good a cheap shot for me to resist even when I in his wake am plied with marigold garlands by his supporters “You are indeed a great product Milind you even got Mr Antony to take a decision” I say It seems like Milind never heard me And then just as I hop off his truck I figure out what he meant by Mumbai’s peculiar voter mix At the little slum trijunction called Ganesh Murti a Hanuman temple the Khwaja Gharib Nawaz Shuttering Store a bhaiyya’s shop selling assorted sachets of shampoos and paan masala but also serving as an Airtel agency to transfer money and pay bills and then a Muslim butcher shop exist in the same little dwelling across maybe a 25-metre frontage Which community’s votes do you seek and how in this city And what do you do with it In front of the temple is that most familiar Indian urban landmark a garbage dump the open-air kudedaan I often like to say that the best way to give somebody directions in one of our cities is to follow the KSKT (kudedaan-se-kudedaan-tak) grid The difference here is this dump reaches the sea and sweeps through a thick clump of mangroves It was to protect these that a succession of our activist environment ministers from Maneka Gandhi to Jairam Ramesh and Jayanthi Natarajan blocked all development along our coastlines which meant taking away a third of all useful land in Mumbai And yet the coast is thickly populated spewing thousands of tonnes of garbage and you can trust plastic bags to do to the mangroves what you feared builders would have Though of course choking them gently rather than just slash and bulldoze Caste religion ethnicity ideology do not paint the political walls in Mumbai None of these determines its politics voter choices ambitions fears and prejudices Or maybe this is too sweeping Each one of these factors does play a role But none of them not even all of them together decides what drives or drags unites or divides angers or pleases fulfils or frustrates this great city and persuades its voters to choose their six representatives to the Lok Sabha Nor is that determinant purely economic even though it is tempting to steal Katherine Boo’s brilliant idea of a megapolis divided between an overcity and an undercity Because the two are not clearly demarcated in any sense They overlap and coexist organically and symbiotically But I do find a very helpful clue from her description of Annawadi slum far in northern suburban Mumbai It is miserable stinky sub-human Danny Boyle-ish and yet its inhabitants she says would not qualify to be poor people according to India’s norms It is a cruel thing to admit but she is right Which is easy to check out as I join Medha Patkar Mumbai’s most powerful and committed activist for the slum dwellers’ cause as she sees it She is now the AAP’s candidate in Mumbai North East against the BJP’s Kirit Somaiya and the NCP’s Sanjay Dina Patil (sitting MP) With the help of The Indian Express assistant editor Shalini Nair who has just returned from a sabbatical at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) with a master’s dissertation on Marxist spatial theory as it applies to struggles in Mumbai’s slums we catch up with Medha in suburban Vikhroli’s Tagore Nagar-Hariyali Village slums Conceded that this isn’t quite Annawadi This is one of the older established and sort of semi-regularised slums with streetlights But it is still a slum Open drains with overflowing deep black muck scooped out and piled at street corners hundreds of homes around an open air dairy with more than a hundred buffaloes run by who else but Yadavs from the heartland who sit in watch on top of a temporary contraption rigged with ropes and sticks that you could possibly call a giant beach swing except it hangs atop a sea of dung urine and slush cocktail Municipal authorities have pasted posters all over on how to avoid dengue or being bitten by Aedes mosquitoes But it is no use They haven’t taught mosquitoes Aedes or good-old malarial Anopheles to read the warnings in Hindi English — or Marathi You are condemned to this quality of life like the extreme poor anywhere in the world even if you have the money to buy every other comfort every gadget and motor vehicle in Mumbai That is the economic contradiction of Mumbai Medhatai as she is called by lakhs of her affectionate loyalists in Mumbai’s slums stands delivering a short speech with lines you can pretty much anticipate: the system is corrupt anti-poor builders hold our cities to ransom and of course the jhadoo now gives the poor an opportunity to fight back But which poor is she talking to She stands at a narrow “trijunction” that can hold no more than 30 persons next to miserable slums but also right underneath a split air-conditioner And before you raise the obvious questions let me record two facts: this isn’t the only dwelling with a split AC A very large number of them do have one In fact I am told you can only use the more expensive split ACs here because a window AC requires obviously something called a window which is a rarity in a slum And second please do not think we are looking at the backs of cheap garage-made or second-hand air-conditioners The one behind Medha is a Panasonic the three dwellings in front have Godrej Voltas and LG And in between somebody is selling a cantilever-shelf full of lovely doves another running a dance academy (Mehul Dance Academy) for hip-hop Bollywood popping locking and b-boying whatever all that means and a White Rose Beauty Academy As Medha’s small and committed procession moves breathless scouts report in advance on the kind of population mix at the next stop Didi thoda sa Malayalam mein bol sakti hain yahan Aur yahan Marathi chalegi… yahan Hindi lekin thoda Urdu bhi daal dena It is a campaign padyatra across some of our most miserable urban lanes But a reporter is nothing if not a peeping Tom and a voyeur — of what makes his story of writings on the wall So I note that almost every home is a 10×12 room with a tinier 6-ft deep section set back and divided into a kitchenette and a bathroom where a two-chamber washing machine is standard fitting Two chambers because where are the open spaces in Mumbai and it rains for half the year So you need a drier for your clothes too You also see television sets PCs even children’s toy bikes (usually secured with padlocked chains to the railings) and smart phones A teenager shames me by asking what’s your Twitter handle sir And when I tell him I have none he looks apologetically at his smartphone and says oh I was searching And then you see an aquarium a bunch of well-fed cats with metal-buckled pet-shop collars even a colourful turtle — all inside one of these “homes” Actually the standard home here is the shape of a cargo container Or rather as if you had piled two or three containers on top of each other Medha takes a short break in the home of Zabhi Issa Sheikh You can see he is a man of means and it is not just because of his menagerie of exotic pets His entire home the floor the walls are lined with sparkling tiles there is a large framed picture of the Ka’aba Medinah and many of the well known Sufi shrines in India Sheikh saab is in the transport business and is now fully committed to the AAP And before you think he merely drives a truck and earns just enough to survive in this miserable stinking slum listen to him He owns four trucks all contracted to big companies one Mahindra Xylo also on contract and an Innova that “I have given Medha behen for her campaign” He has everything you can ask for A wonderful family talented well-behaved children pets as pampered as you’d find anywhere on Carmichael or Pedder Road Then what is it that he doesn’t have It’s called space Isthis the election diarist’s eureka gotcha moment Maybe looking for writings on the wall I’ve been searching in the wrong places Surely cosmopolitan Mumbai has all the determinants of political division and distinction that other parts of the country have But the most important of these in Mumbai the commodity the asset or the luxury that tells rich from poor successful from failed struggling from having arrived frustrated and angry from aspirational and lazily smug is a five-letter word: space Life in Mumbai is an endless struggle for space or a celebration of having some of your own The richest are not spared this Even the topmost tycoons with the biggest homes even if they are able to take a helicopter from the airport to the helipad at Mahalaxmi Race Course sort of midtown can still be hanging for an impotent hour in their Bentleys and Porsches just fighting their way past the Mahalaxmi/Haji Ali junction Mumbai also has an utterly secular traffic gridlock The rest which is the vast vast majority of Mumbaikars spend their lives fighting for space In offices where rentals for a workstation space may cost more than the employee’s salary in the trains which turn the packed-like-sardines cliche on its head: delicate sardines in fact would be minced into a fine paste if packed like commuters on a rush-hour Mumbai train The HR head at a large MNC still headquartered in Nariman Point tells me she has made it a practice to add a bottle of deodorant spray to the induction kits and goody bags of her new executives Even they take the same trains and by the time they get to work they smell like what else but the great unwashed You can’t allow that in a corporate headquarters It’s not a slum But however well you pay your young executives they can’t afford more space to live in or to commute unless their parents had been relatively successful and farsighted The next day I ask Sharad Pawar for what TV anchors would call his “take” on the space issue His eyes light up Yes it is the biggest problem in Mumbai but nobody wants to touch it Anything you try will become a scandal Given how valuable space is how much of it is available illegally and the arbitrage it involves four of the fabled 5 Cs that govern Mumbai’s life: Corporates Crime Culture (popular) Corruption and even Cricket are governed by it The deals in Mumbai are all in terms of FSI (floor space index) or how much you can construct on a piece of land The law allows too little FSI and creates huge arbitrage for mafias of various kinds as builders believe that land may belong to man but heavens belong to gods and you can happily steal from them FSI is Mumbai’s convertible currency and the builder-politician partnership runs the mint where it is printed Itfeeds Mumbai’s politics underworld often Bollywood denies young Mumbaikars playgrounds (it is no longer the home of Indian cricket now so what if Mumbai Indians won the last IPL with Malinga Bravo and Mitchell Johnson) keeps afloat old business families who have already starved their employees vacuumed their shareholders and outsmarted their bankers but can simply keep leveraging the land under the shells of their abandoned factories to keep De Beers and Versace in good humour Builders buy land and then steal space upwards in the name of building floors for parking flower beds — in one case in fact in a perpetually under-construction building that is now a central landmark something like 20 full floors on the pretext of providing fire and disaster shelter I am not sure if these floors are fitted with parachutes on the parapets as ferry boats come sporting life-belts This desperation for more and more space is also producing even in the most premium buildings some of the worst most unaesthetic modern architecture in the world He is a wonderful man to meet but architect Hafeez Contractor should account for some of this Buildings that would look to you like inverted test tubes or phallic fantasies depending on whether you have a sick body or mind Apologies Hafeez and surely you are not the only one just the most celebrated Mumbai’s aesthetically disastrous construction boom should establish beyond any doubt that architecture is the least evolved profession in India Ok the second least evolved After journalism Since space is the currency of Mumbai and in such short finite supply it has many other collateral implications A household like Zabhi Issa Sheikh’s can have ACs AC cars can even travel by air occasionally But his family or that of anybody else’s in Mumbai does not have a single — not even one — air-conditioned seat in a commuter train in their city Delhi provides two to three million now on its Metro Here you are then You can be successful even moderately rich But you do not have space for self-respect at home or outside Next to Sheikh’s house is a tailoring shop for example It’s 6×8 ft but has workstations for four tailors and even half a loft to store fabric and thread In fact the quality of your life falls further the moment you have to leave home for work school or college Our Sheikh saab is rather good-humoured about this As we settle down to bragging about our respective pets and somebody pulls our leg with “apni apni billi pe sab ko guroor hai” (parodying Amitabh Bachchan’s apni apni biwi) I ask him how come he doesn’t have a dog He is foxed I can’t resist another cheap shot and unleash that old Mumbai cliche: achcha hai na Sheikh saab if you had a dog you would have had to train the poor thing to wag its tail vertically as there’d be no space left to right We both gulp our oversized

defended Dhingra’s act of revolutionary terrorism Mohandas Gandhi not yet the Mahatma denounced Dhingra’s action Very much the same attitude was displayed about Bhagat Singh by Mahatma Gandhi at the Karachi Congress and he refused to intercede with the Viceroy Lord Irwin to commute the death sentence Bhagat Singh had been given Gandhi and the Congress consistently opposed violent interventions made by young Indians during the Independence struggle The objection to violent action was a principle for Gandhi but merely tactical for his followers Non-violence was expected to deliver success in the struggle It did and hence the rival paths to freedom were devalued This is why the history of the Independence struggle marginalises people like Bhagat Singh But while violent action was not approved of by the Congress terrorism did not have the negative connotation for everyone The British had experienced terrorism from the Irish freedom fighters — Sinn Féin and the IRA Very often the financial support for the groups came from Irish Americans who loathed Britain and supported the violent struggle India became a victim of nationalist terrorism during the Khalistan movement and by proxy from the Tamil Eelam movement which claimed Rajiv Gandhi’s life This was the case till the early 1990s Terrorism began to have a negative connotation when the Americans first experienced violent attacks on themselves abroad as on the US Embassy in Kenya or on USS Cole during the late 1990s Finally when 9/11 took place terrorism was labelled as America’s and by implication the world’s number 1 problem America was then the sole superpower or hyper-power as the French called it So the 21st century began with a negative image for violent political action on part of unofficial groups The al-Qaeda changed the meaning and practice of terrorism Terrorism is a politically motivated private (non- governmental) action The actions of the Anushilan group or Bhagat Singh were directed against officials who represented imperial power This was also the Irish revolutionary tradition at the outset It was only in late 20th century in Northern Ireland that the terrorist activity became sectarian and directed against civilian population as well Once the Americans became hostile to terrorism they withdrew the financial support After that peace was easy to achieve in Northern Ireland Modern terrorism especially of the jihadist variety is directed against civilian targets where by causing collateral damage a notice is sent to the powers that be that there is an ideological and political war on The jihadist struggle has no territorial limits and it has no final goal except the conversion of everyone to the Wahabi version of Islam It is directed at Muslim nations as well as everyone else It does not wish to negotiate and has no interim goals The progress in technology of violence allows the terrorist as an urban guerrilla to kill many people in one attempt Bhagat Singh’s revolutionary terrorism belongs to a different world WATCH INDIAN EXPRESS VIDEOS HERE For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top News Pulls the next one towards fine-leg, San
