enforcement officials from gunfire The new barrier can be folded compactly when not in use making it easier to transport and deploy When expanded – which takes only five seconds – it can provide cover for officers and stop bullets from several types of handguns “We worked with a federal special agent to understand what their needs were as well as SWAT teams police officers and law enforcement and

believe the barrier could be used to protect children in a school or a wounded person in an emergency situation Although the ballistic barrier is now just in prototype form and not currently in use by

International Criminal Court accusing the Hague-based tribunal of the "persecution and humiliation of people of colour especially Africans" The announcement late Tuesday comes after similar decisions this month by South Africa and Burundi to abandon the troubled institution set up to try the world’s worst crimes Information Minister Sheriff Bojang said in an announcement on state television that the court had been used "for the persecution of Africans and especially their leaders" while ignoring crimes committed by the West He singled out the case of former British prime minister Tony Blair who the ICC decided not to indict over the Iraq war "There are many Western countries at least 30 that have committed heinous war crimes against independent sovereign states and their citizens since the creation of the ICC and not a single Western war criminal has been indicted" The withdrawal he said "is warranted by the fact that the ICC despite being called International Criminal Court is in fact an International Caucasian Court for the persecution and humiliation of people of colour especially Africans" The ICC set up in 2002 is often accused of bias against Africa and has also struggled with a lack of cooperation including from the United States which has signed the court’s treaty but never ratified it Representational image Reuters Gambia has been trying without success to use the court to punish the European Union for deaths of thousands of African migrants trying to reach its shores The decision will also come as a personal blow to the court’s chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda a former Gambian justice minister ‘Chaos is coming’ The court at the weekend asked South Africa and Burundi to reconsider their decisions to leave which came as a major blow to the institution "I urge them to work together with other States in the fight against impunity which often causes massive violations of human rights" Sidiki Kaba president of the assembly of state parties to the ICC founding treaty said in a statement South Africa’s decision followed a dispute last year when Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir visited the country despite being the subject of an ICC arrest warrant over alleged war crimes Earlier this month Burundi said it would leave the court while Namibia and Kenya have also raised the possibility Kaba said he was concerned that South Africa and Burundi’s decisions would pave the way for other African states to leave the court The tribunal is tasked with "prosecuting the most serious crimes that shock the conscience of humanity namely genocide war crimes crimes against humanity and crimes of aggression" The court’s former prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo criticised Burundi and South Africa accusing them of giving leaders on the continent a free hand "to commit genocide" "Burundi is leaving the ICC to keep committing crimes against humanity and possible genocide in its territory Burundi’s president wants free hands to attack civilians" He added that former South African president Nelson Mandela had "promoted the establishment of the Court to avoid new massive crimes in Africa Now under the Zuma leadership South Africa decided to cover up the crimes and abandoned African victims The world is going backward" "The chaos is coming Genocide in Burundi and a new African war are in motion" he said Bangkok: Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej was the revered "father of the nation" whose reign spanned seven politically turbulent decades shielded by harsh defamation laws and an intense personality cult Thailand’s late King Bhumibol Adulyadej was the world’s longest ruling monarch when he died last year aged 88 AP The world’s longest-serving royal sovereign until his death last year at the age of 88 Bhumibol rebuilt a near-extinct monarchy into one of the wealthiest and most powerful on the planet — and one whose roots go deep into modern-day Thailand Uncertainly looms about how his heir King Maha Vajiralongkorn will lead the monarchy "How the new king intends to reign is what Thai people are observing because it will have much to say about how their political life will be" Thitinan Pongsudhirak politics professor at Chulalongkorn University told AFP Thailand’s absolute monarchy was abolished in 1932 but under the official title of King Rama IX Bhumibol exercised a powerful moral authority and also a political one as his reign matured — albeit often away from the public eye Crowned in 1950 many analysts attribute his longevity during an era strewn with political violence to deep ties with a military that relied on his official endorsement of their repeated coups The army’s latest power grab was in May 2014 when it toppled the elected government of Yingluck Shinawatra That coup came just eight years after her billionaire brother Thaksin was overthrown as premier in 2006 Right up until his death Bhumibol was seen as a unifying figure in the deeply divided country "Because of King Bhumibol’s immense moral authority the Thai people will want King Vajiralongkorn to succeed" Thitinan said An untested ruler King Maha Vajiralongkorn or Rama X has spent much of his adult life in Germany and has not attained the widespread popularity of his father Image crafting: Helped by well-publicised rural development projects the soft-spoken bespectacled King Bhumibol enjoyed an image of a benevolent moral force That reputation was carefully embossed by ritual a well-oiled propaganda machine and a tough royal defamation law In 2011 Forbes Magazine rated Bhumibol as the world’s richest monarch But despite his wealth the keen saxophonist photographer and sailor was seen as in touch with ordinary Thais The reverence resonates deep into public and private life Young people are taught about Bhumibol’s good works at school cinema-goers have to stand for the royal anthem at the start of films while people prostrated themselves or crawled in his presence Giant portraits of the king — and queen — pepper towns and cities across the country while photos of the monarch adorn many Thai households Nearly 12 million mourners visited the royal reception hall where his body lay in state Born on 5 December 1927 in the United States Bhumibol came to the throne aged 18 in 1946 when his brother was shot dead in mysterious circumstances at the Royal Palace in Bangkok He was crowned four years later after finishing his studies in Switzerland The same year he married Queen Sirikit and they had four children — three girls and a boy A man of widely publicised interests Bhumibol won a gold medal for sailing at the Asian Games in 1967 and was behind some 3000 rural development projects But the hurly-burly of Thai politics dominated his long reign In the 1970s the king intervened during several political crises His most spectacular arbitration came in 1992 when he waded in between the military and pro-democracy protesters the leaders of the two camps bowed down before him and made peace in a televised act of deference The emergence of Thaksin Shinawatra who was voted in as premier in 2001 shaped the twilight of his reign Bhumibol remained largely silent during a military crackdown on pro-Thaksin "Red Shirt" protests in 2010 that left about 90 people dead and hundreds wounded in the capital despite calls from some opposition figures for his intervention With avenues for criticism growing particularly on social media authorities strictly enforced Thailand’s harsh lese majeste laws which carry a jail term of up to 15 years on each count for defaming the royals Dozens of cases have been driven through the courts since the 2014 military coup The ruling junta says it is duty-bound to protect the reputation of the monarchy But critics say the law has been used as a tool to crush dissent and straitjackets all public discussion on the monarchy "Unlike other modern monarchies it is impossible to tell exactly how popular the Thai monarchy is" said analyst and historian David Streckfuss author of a book on Thailand’s lese majeste laws New York: A man opened fire in a busy New York hospital on Friday afternoon killing a female doctor and wounding six other people before turning his weapon on himself according to officials The shooter was himself a doctor and a former employee of the hospital according to Mayor Bill de Blasio and police chief James O’Neill who ruled out a connection to terrorism He entered the building in a white coat with an automatic weapon concealed under his shirt officials said Officials gathered outside Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center after reports of a shooting AP The incident occurred at the 1000-bed Bronx-Lebanon hospital just before 3 pm as many patients were receiving consultations The police quickly cordoned off the area and encircled the hospital placing officers on rooftops as they conducted a floor-by-floor search for the assailant The shooter whose identity has not been officially disclosed was eventually found dead in a pool of blood on the 17th floor of the building after apparently killing himself according to O’Neill The police chief added that the gunman apparently attempted "to set himself on fire" before activating the institution’s fire alarm system The dead doctor a woman whose identity has also not yet been disclosed was found nearby The mayor said some doctors were "fighting for their lives right now" without disclosing how many physicians were among the wounded Speaking at a press briefing De Blasio said: "Thank God this is not an act of terrorism It is an isolated incident" Several witnesses spoke of the panic that spread during the attack Garry Trimbie told AFP he got a phone call from his fiancee a hospital employee at around 3:15 pm "She was crying she said somebody started shooting and then the employees ran and barricaded themselves in the room" he said My turn A pregnant woman who was undergoing a consultation on the 14th floor praised the way staff responded "I did as I was told and I’m safe and sound They told us to go inside a room and hide We were barricaded inside a room The hospital staff was on top of everything They were in control" Tamara told AFP giving her first name only "I learned a long time ago: when you’re pregnant never panic" she added Nurse Patricia Phipps said the shooting did not come as a shock given the borough it took place in The Bronx which is known for its high crime-rate She said: "The neighborhood is sketchy So you’re not surprised sometimes these things happen when you work at hospitals like this Things happen That’s just living in New York I just said to myself: it’s my turn" The latest incident could also re-ignite debate over gun control laws in the United States which sees more mass shootings than any other country Mayor De Blasio briefly touched on the topic in his press briefing calling the attack "something we have seen around the country" "Every time these things happen it’s another reminder that more needs to be done for those people that have access to these weapons.we can’t continue not to do something about it" state legislator Marcos Crespo told news channel New York 1 The last mass shooting occurred on 14 June near Washington DC when a man opened fire on a baseball team comprised of Republican congressmen wounding four people including the chamber’s third most

early 1950s to crossing the 15000 mark in the past few years the popularity for Sawai Gandharva Bhimsen Mahotsav a festival that celebrates Indian classical music and features a number of stalwarts from the field has grown manifold since the time of its inception The four-day festivals begins on Thursday The 82-year-old Subhash Bhambure got associated with the festival more than 55 years ago when he was barely in his mid-20s Initially he did the job of placing musical instruments of the performing artistes on the stage and taking them back once the artistes were done with their performances For the last 25 years he has been handling the job of writing the inaugural speech of the festival Recollecting how he came to get attached to the festival decades ago he says “I used to learn singing from my guru Vijay Karandikar since I was small However when I grew up my voice became so heavy that my guruji advised me against pursuing singing as a career Later when I was in college my guruji called me to assist him in work at the Sawai festival Since the order came from my guru I didn’t even think before saying yes” The octogenarian is happy to have seen who’s who of Indian classical music from close quarters Sharing an anecdote he says “Almost 30 years ago Ustad Bismillah Khan had come to perform at Sawai In the morning time when he wanted to read namaaz he asked if someone can take him to a mosque My guruji asked me to accompany him till the mosque and back I cannot forget that day and the minutes I spent in the company of someone as big as Khan Sahab” For the last 35 years 63-year-old Jayanta Padhye handles an important task at the festival – receiving the artistes at the airport dropping them to their respective hotels and then ferrying them to the venue of the festival He hails from a family of musicians; both his father and grandfather were singers “Almost every artiste recognises me – from Ustad Zakir Hussain Pt Rajan-Sajan Mishra Bhavani Shankar Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia and so on” says Padhye Once after receiving renowned flautist Chaurasia at the airport Padhye mentioned to him how a particular raga (raag jhinjhoti) played by Chaurasia in 1978 at Sawai still reverberated in his ears “He said ‘chalo aaj mein tumhari pasand ka raga bajaoonga’ (Today I will play raga of your choice) And he kept his promise when he performed that same evening I was so touched by his gesture” recalls Padhye The task that 73-year-old Vidyadhar Bhagwat handles is crucial to any festival While he joined Sawai as a volunteer in 1958 and handled different tasks in different departments for years in 2004 he took over the task of procuring all the required permissions for the event such as letters from the collector MSEB police department fire brigade NOC from PMC NOC from venue owner and so on “In the last 57 years of my association with Sawai I have done many jobs like overseeing seating arrangement taking care of artistes in the green room transportation and others Handling different tasks has been a learning experience for me” he says Having witnessed Sawai years after years the trio say the festival will only grow in the coming years “The awareness understanding and love for classical music has been increasing While earlier only the middle-aged and senior citizens would attend the festival participation of youngsters has been on a rise for the last few years” says Bhambhure Day 1 of Sawai today Performing artistes Namrata Gaikwad (shehnai) Savani and Shilpa (vocal) Pt Vishwanath (vocal) Rupak Kulkarni + Pravin

The Bharatiya Janata Party made massive gains in the Muslim-dominated city of Malegaon improving its tally from zero to nine seats in the 84-seat Malegaon Municipal Corporation The party however failed to make inroads in the Muslim-dominated pockets of the city In Spite of putting up a record 27 Muslim candidates The BJP had fielded a total of 56 candidates but all its nine successful candidates represent Hindu-dominated wards in the city The BJP did however meet with some success in attracting Muslim voters; its 27 Muslim candidates mostly drew over 100 votes each with one candidate receiving 884 votes However the voting disparity between Muslim and Hindu candidates was stark Its 28 Hindu candidates drew an impressive 84242 votes with each candidate on an average drawing 3008 votes The BJP’s 27 Muslim candidates drew a measly 8916 votes with each candidate on an average getting only 330 votes The BJP drew a total of 93158 votes “We have not met with the desired success but we have made inroads into Muslim pockets If the candidates in Muslim areas had the desired party support we would definitely have won a few seats BJP leaders had pleaded with a lot of us to join the party which we did However when it came to helping us out during elections we received nothing and were left to fend for ourselves” said BJP candidate Jabir Khan Sabir Khan who drew 884 votes The grouse of most BJP Muslim candidates was the lack of party support However most Muslim candidates were unequivocal about staying in the party despite the debacle “Even parties like MIM had leaders from Hyderabad coming to campaign For a national party like us we only had one rally by Dr Subhash Bhamre in the Muslim areas”said BJP candidate Dr Shaheena Sayyed “The BJP only sent a few Muslim BJP leaders to campaign If senior leaders of the BJP or ministers from the government had campaigned in Muslim pockets it would have sent a positive message to the electorate Sadly this was not done” Sayyed said The BJP however countered the allegations and said it had not discriminated against candidates “This is a win for the development agenda of the party Our candidates may not have been elected from Muslim constituencies but we have drawn unprecedented votes in the elections We see this as a win and a stepping stone to greater success in Malegaon” said Nitin Pophale member of the BJP’s state working committee Meanwhile the overall election results pointed to a hung house in the Malegaon Municipal Corporation The Congress emerged the single largest party with 28 seats NCP won

symbolising Muslim anger alienation and backwardness The two bombings in the town in 2006 and 2008 brought to the fore allegations of the role of Hindu groups in terror activities Local residents however claimed the BJP’s attempts to woo Malegaon appear cosmetic “The party could not find traction among the residents of this town who find no common ground with the BJP in its present form The BJP may claim it wants to reach out to the Muslims but facts show otherwise The CM chose to address rallies in both Bhiwandi and Panvel where elections were slated but ignored Malegaon What message

of the drama happening in real life” one of the key characters tells his granddaughter while narrating the complex life story of Saira Banu (Manju Warrier) And the writers of C/O Saira Banu believes every word in the above dialogue The filmmakers have tried to bring out the drama in the mundane life of the characters played by seasoned actors in the film Director Antony Sony’s debut film packs some neat performances and enough surprises to keep the audience hooked to the story The film follows the middle-class life of Saira Banu and her adopted son Joshua Peter (Shane Nigam) Except for the fact that she wears a headscarf there is nothing conservative about Banu Her character is progressive and regardless of her own personal tragedy she has a positive outlook on life that only revolves around her teenage son Banu works as a post woman and strives hard to fulfill the desires of her son and her own which is to pass a driving test Joshua an aspiring photographer suffers whole body dysfunction as and when he faces a difficult situation He may be pursuing a law degree but he still needs his mother to bail him out of trouble Following a heated argument with Banu Joshua storms out

career goals Annie John Tharavady (Amala Akkineni) the most feared advocate in Kerala is on his case and is very determined to lock him up for a long time Joshua has no money or muscle power to fight back against the morally corrupt system All he has is his mother After a series of abortive attempts to secure a decent legal aid for his son Banu decides to take the things into her own hands She represents her son against the mighty Annie This is the point where the film pivots from its real life-esque approach and enters the area of cinematic drama With no basic degree or legal knowledge Banu sets off to fight a battle where she stands zero chance of winning The first half of the film explores the heart-warming relationship between Banu and Joshua and narrates their backstory The second half is a thriller where two mothers draw out their claws and ready to go above and beyond to protect their sons in a court setup Manju walks away with the film with her charming performance although most of her attempts at comedy fall flat But it is her performance that makes the film watchable at times Shane is convincing as an innocent teenager but it seems like he has one fixed look on his face for all the situations Amala who has made her comeback in Malayalam after a gap of more than 20 years has also delivered a convincing performance as a formidable lawyer with ethical issues

to explain trends to the posterity Santosh Singh’s book ‘Ruled or Misruled: The story and destiny of Bihar’ is a treasure troveof such material Bihar has always been a cauldronof conflicting ideas and forces Yet it steadfastly refuses to respond to any particular trend This confuses scholars and often heightens their dilemma prompting them to invent euphemisms for the reality which laterturns into truisms That is also the precisely the reason why most scholars and journalists on Bihar are caught in an internal conflict which is difficult to resolve The cover of Santosh Singh’s book Ruled and Misruled: The story and destiny of Bihar published by Bloomsbury Santosh Singh a journalist to the core evades the intellectual trap by offering an unbiased chronicle of events and truthful reporting of facts on the ground The book is shorn of academic jargon and complex verbiage yet it offers a deep insight into a state which remains an enigma for the rest of India except the Biharis themselves The book spreadacross21 chapters is truly a treat even for those who claim to know a lot about the state For instance his ground reporting on evolution ofa private upper caste (Bhumihar) army — Ranbir Sena — from Ikbari village of Arra district is superb and revealing After the killing of Ranbir Sena chief Brahmeshway Mukhia the faux pas committed by the administration and abominable conduct of certain political leaders have been quite deftly dissected The book chronicles the stories about “rule and misrule” under the Lalu Yadav-Rabri and Nitish Kumar regimes till Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched his first political campaign from Muzaffarpur Similarly for the first time Singh’s book has brought out the fact quite clearly that there was nothing personal about Nitish Kumar’s aversion to Narendra Modi Till 2005 Nitish was quite in awe of Modi and had never shown his pathological distaste for a man who he predicted would lead the country one day It all happened between 2005 and 2010 when Nitish Kumar’s stock soared and his political equity was seen as not inferior to Modi’s in their respective role of chief ministers Nitish played a gamble and also paid a price But the final dice is yet to roll Maybe the results of the Assembly election on 8November will put the matter into definitive perspective The writer must have prepared a ground for writing a saga on this electoral battle which can easilybe called as a defining moment of Indian politics Singh’s book burdens the reader with so much information that it becomes difficult to arrive at any conclusion at the end of it But that is precisely the writer’s motive He wants to provide loads of information to readers and enable them to make their own decision As a journalist who has been touring and writing
