match at the O2 Arena but he was able to hang on through two tough tiebreakers to earn the victory “It really could have gone either way” said Djokovic who completed a career Grand Slam by winning the French Open this year “I was down very early in both tiebreaks tonight But I just managed to stay committed and put pressure on his second serves” To get to the tiebreakers Djokovic saved three break points in the first set He then managed to go up a break twice in the second set but Raonic responded each time Raonic who reached the Wimbledon final this year took the lead in both tiebreakers as Djokovic struggled for consistency but he couldn’t hold on “I gave myself some chances there He played well in most of those chances” said Raonic who can still advance to the semifinals by beating Dominic Thiem on Thursday “Sometimes us tennis players we struggle to forget But that’s the number one thing I’ve got to do right now” Djokovic earned only 11 winners in the match compared to Raonic’s 42 but it was still enough to advance and keep him on track to win a record-tying sixth title at the year-end championship “All in all two tiebreaks against a big server is a great win and great

going In the final game of the match the Frenchman gave it away with three of his five double-faults “It was a tough one” said Monfils who is still recovering from a rib injury that forced him out of

parliamentary logjam plays out yet againit is worth examining if the rising crescendo of criticism is nearing a tipping point that will finally tilt the balance in favour of a correction But the reality is that there will be no correction until the root causesand not just the superficial symptomsare addressed Both the criticisms and the proposed solutions so far treat parliamentary disruptions as the diseasewhereas they are merely the symptoms Notwithstanding a few younger MPs seemingly defying their leaderships with a no workno pay proposal which incidentally I supportbut only as a symbolic gesture there has not been a serious debate on the root causes Indias Parliament contains many obsolete rules and conventions that desperately need changingwithout which it is illogical to expect lasting change in its functioning (or lack thereof) These rules are rooted in the restrictions of Raj-era limited democracyas well as an earliermore genteelera when Victorian normsnot rulesgoverned the settlement of disputes In other wordsthey are not built to tackle the conflicts that we mustas a nationwork through Firstthe Raj hangover: well before Independence in 1947the British gradually started involving Indians in governing India A series of reforms such as the Indian Councils Act of 1909and the Government of India Acts of 1919 and 1935 gave Indians limited participation Although elections were introducedthe ensuing elected body fell far short of being a parliamentwith authority denied to it in many crucial areas The idea was to devolve just enough power to keep the natives from rebellingbut mostly just to provide them a platform to blow off steam That mindset surviveswith successive governments not just this one happy to treat Parliament as a platform for the opposition to vent its irebut not to the extent that it can exert true pressure That would be too uncomfortablerequiring the government to mobilise its membersutilise its political capitaland sell its agenda to the nation Insteadevery government strongly prefers the easy option of treating Parliament as a toothless debating houselistening to the opposition with an indulgent smileand then doing exactly as it pleases Very British Rajexcept that we get to take turns being in charge This attitudeand the obsolete parliamentary rules which enable itis at the heart of the problem This is precisely why the government is loath to agree to debates that require voting rather oddlyconsidering that we are a democracy after all since that would require of it all the above-mentioned labours for the passage of contentious proposals This is where that other relic of the past accentuates the problem: the lack of precise rules and dependence on gentlemanly codes for settling disputes With the exception of a no-confidence motion that nuclear option threatening the very existence of a government every other voting motion in Parliament is left to the discretion of the speakerthat isto consensus between the parties That provides a veto to every sidemaking it totally unworkable An analogy would be the early days of automobileswhen there were so few of them that no hard and fast traffic rules were needed; if two happened to be at the same junction at the same timeboth drivers could be counted on to arrive at a genteel and courteous solution to who would go first Todaythat just would not work; without traffic lights and roundaboutsthere would be utter chaos Indian democracy has come a long way in these 64 years; it has empowered millions of the previously disenfranchisedand it has become far more competitive In line with thisits highest legislative body now needs precise traffic rules to function efficiently What might these rules be To begin withan attitudinal change can and should be facilitated by doing away with paternalistic relics of Raj-era limited democracy One example: private members bills By conventionthese are never passed by Parliamentacting only as moral suasion on the government In facteven to introduce such a billan MP needs to seek the presidents permission No such permission should be neededand the convention of not passing them should be turned on its head When it becomes normal for MPs and not just governments to author bills that become lawparliamentary participation will prove far more attractive Another example of paternalism is thateven after Parliament passes a lawthe government has the discretion of delaying its notificationthat isimplementation That should go; any law passed by Parliament should automatically become the law Most importantlyvoting motions should be commonplace in Parliamentas is the practice in most evolved democracies Governments routinely reject opposition demands for voting motions with the taunt that they would entertain only the mother of all voting motionsthe motion of no-confidence That is a non-startersince the opposition will almost never have the numbers for it And why should there be only two extreme alternatives of either a toothless debate or a no-confidence motion There is plenty of room in the middle for voting debates that keep the government on its toes without jeopardising its continuance But safeguards are needed to prevent the opposition from using flimsy excuses to punch above their weight class The best way to balance both is to do away with consensus and discretionary powers to decide what should be a voting motion; insteadreplace those with a precise rule requiring a demand from a substantial minority of MPssay 33 per cent If one of every three MPs asks for a voting motionthere ought to be one The writera member of the Lok Sabhabelongs to the [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More

Former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar who is England as parts of the commentary team for the ICC Champions Trophy hit back at Ramchandra Guha after the former Committee of Administrator (COA) member’s ‘conflict of interest’ accusation Guha resigned from his position on Thursday and wrote a letter to Vinod Rai on Friday In the letter Guha wrote how the Supreme Court appointed panel ‘failed’ in addressing conflict of interest involving players like Gavaskar “I’m very very disappointed if anyone is doubting my integrity I do not have a conflict of interest It’s baffling to find my integrity has been questioned” Gavaskar told ‘NDTV’ In his comprehensive letter Guha wrote that Gavaskar’s commentary is in direct conflict with his other role as a head of a leading player management company “Show me one instance where I have tried to influence the selection committee Indian cricket has done more for me than I have done for it It’s very disappointed that they are doubting my integrity and contribution to Indian cricket “I am absolutely confused as to where the conflict arises What disappoints me really is that I have been with whatever ability I have trying to serve the Indian cricket in my own way as a player then as an administrator for a little time with the cricket committee the technical committee and I was there for two months as the BCCI president” Guha in his letter had suggested that either Gavaskar must give up his PMG role or stop commenting on games for the Board of Control for Cricket in India The former CoA member was not pleased with MS Dhoni’s Grade A contract but Gavaskar backed the decision and said Dhoni deserves it “MS Dhoni got Grade ‘A’ contract because he is a superb player How can you question Dhoni’s contribution to Indian cricket If there is a superstar culture then there is also a jealousy culture “Jealousy culture at people who have done something for Indian cricket continue to do something for Indian cricket that they should not be

this film Quentin Tarantino hangs like a very large shadow over it and then there is Ritchie himself who successfully drew a Sherlock Holmes out of Robert Downey Jr — or the other way round The Man From UNCLE suffers on all three counts It isn’t as ambitious as James Bond as sharp as a Tarantino or as brainy as a Holmes What Ritchie is going for here is friendly banter between an American agent Napoleon Solo (Cavill) and the Russian spy he is forced to partner with Kuryakin (Hammer) during the Kennedy years amidst the Cold War They are chaperoning a German Gaby (Vikander) whose father used to be Hitler’s rocket scientist before he switched sides Gaby was left behind the Wall but father Dr Teller has also disappeared now and the Russians and Americans fear he may have fallen into the hands of Nazi remnants with evil intentions The problem is that Cavill and Hammer don’t light any sparks together or apart good as they look in the sharp suits assigned to the former and the cap and informal jacket given to the latter They are also saddled with dialogue that requires them to speak really slowly when trying to emphasise a point be it on race tracks during boat and car chases or even a totally silent and largely silly hill-side sequence Gaby played by Vikander who is riding high on the success of Ex Machina could have told them how to play this game better As the woman who apparently requires saving she knows just how to prick their puffed balloons and to deliver a blow dead-pan Watch that scene where she breaks into a dance in pyjamas that make her look younger and
