I have told him to take his non-selection for the training camp in a positive way and work even harder. spoke to Musa over the telephone in their last hour.The content of that phone conversation is significant They asked him to get in touch with Abu Dujana and get a list of their contacts from him Since Dujana heads Lashkar-e-Taiba operations in south Kashmir this is only one of several indications that the various groups are working in tandem Musa’s open radicalisation has not splintered the militant movement Rather it has steered the movement overall in an evenradical jihad-oriented direction Arms and ammunition Operationally the call to recruit could indicate that arms have become available for the new batch of militant recruits So far most of the boys operating in south Kashmir have worked with’snatched’ guns If some of the most well-informed observers here are to be believed they have also been getting hold of ammunition from police armouries So far police estimates put the number of militants at a little more than 200 To ask for almost 500 new militants to rally to the movement in one go must signal that a sure-fire supply of weapons has become available There are indeed rumours that high-calibre weapons have reached the Valley— presumably from across the Line of Control Whatever the truth of such rumours various forces deployed in the Valley should keep a zealous vigil on their arms and ammunition dumps For any of these to be compromised would change the balance of firepower advantage tremendously Global agenda The more obvious signal of this recruitment effort is what is already widely expected in Kashmir— that militancy is set to take a quantum leap in the next few days and weeks In fact it would not be surprising if a war-like scenario were to emerge on the ground by August That would set the stage for belligerence at the United Nations General Assembly in September Pakistan has often raised the Kashmir issue in past years but generally got no support This time Turkey (on Indian soil) and Iran (at the highest level) have already spoken in favour of the Kashmiri armed struggle Given its global trade clout China could potentially rally a couple of score more UN members Dramatic events and scenes in the Valley over the next two months would be tailor-made to set the stage for key geo-strategic moves on the global stage The sight of ND Tiwari running around the courts to battle Rohit Shekhar’s paternity suit and later accepting him as his son is going to be an enduring image of nearly ninety-year-old leader who has the singular distinction of holding the post of chief ministers of two states — Uttar Pradesh and Uttrakhand As Tiwari along with his son Rohit Shekhar is joining the BJP his image of a comical self will get accentuated Nothing sticks to people’s memory so strongly as the fall from grace of a political titan And those who know Tiwari would testify that the brahmin of neechi (low) dhoti from Kumaon was indeed no inferior to tallest leaders of his times — VP Singh Atal Behari Vajpayee George Fernandes PV Narasimha Rao and LK Advani Much before the relatively younger generation leaders like Chandra Babu Naidu Narendra Modi or Nitish Kumar championed the cause of development ND Tiwari rightfully earned the epithet of “Vikas purus (development man)” In a sense he was the original “development man” who pioneered path-breaking projects in UP and gave a push to economic growth File photo of ND Tiwari Reuters Take for instance the concept of New Okhla Industrial development authority (Noida) was mooted and fructified during ND Tiwari’s tenure as the chief minister Similarly industrial estates all around the state were established during his time to give fillip to medium and small-scale industries At the governance level in his stints as chief minister of UP and later Uttrakhand Tiwari’s track record as administrator was quite good if not outstanding However there are certain outstanding facets of his life which are not known Few know that ND Tiwari was the disciple of noted British political theorist and economist Harold Joseph Laski Inspired by Laski’s turbulent transition from Fabian socialism to Marxism Tiwari found his own mooring in India — in Nehruvian socialism — and joined the Congress He was liked by Jawaharlal Nehru and picked up by Indira Gandhi as trusted lieutenant In Sanjay Gandhi’s time he came across as a member of the cabal that ran the government However Tiwari’s amiability and his credential as socialist leader always endeared him to tallest leader of the opposition He was equally at ease with Vajpayee VP Singh and leaders from the left spectrum In 1989 when VP Singh staged a rebellion against Rajiv Gandhi and the VHP launched the Ram Mandir agitation Tiwari was saddled with the most difficult task of running the UP government And it was during his time that the laying of foundation for the Ayodhya temple took place much against wishes of Tiwari In an interview he once told me that he was made to facilitate the foundation-laying at the instance of Rajiv Gandhi and then home minister Buta Singh At the time of Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination Tiwari along PV Narasimha Rao was the biggest leader of the congress Though Rao was selected as AICC chief ND Tiwari was seen as a claimant for the prime ministership in the event of the congress’ victory Tiwari was contesting assembly as well as Lok Sabha seat When the results came he found himself on the wrong side of the destiny as he lost Lok Sabha seat from Nainital and won the assembly seat Rao emerged as a clear winner and outfoxed Tiwari to assume the leadership role As he walked into the BJP’s headquarter to show his allegiance with the party in order to secure ticket for his son Rohit Shekhar Tiwari looks like a figure of tragic-comedy walking always on the wrong side of history towards the fag end of his life He looks like a helpless figure pulled by vested interests for personal gains Tiwari’s past is illustrious His present and future is not only ridiculous but also ignominious In recent context ND Tiwari’s relevance is as much a commentary on politics as on tendency of the political class to exploit infirmities and vulnerabilities of an old man not in control of himself The sight of ND Tiwari today is really pity By: IANS |

Related News In a drone race that pitted a world-class pilot against Artificial Intelligence (AI) the human pilot emerged faster although the AI flew the drone more smoothly and consistently NASA scientists have announced The scientists raced drones controlled by AI against a professional human pilot on October 12 to put their work to the test The results declared this week showed that world-class drone pilot Ken Loo averaged 111 seconds compared to the autonomous drones which averaged 139 seconds “We pitted our algorithms against a human who flies a lot more by feel” said the project’s task manager Rob Reid of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena California “You can actually see that the AI flies the drone smoothly around the course whereas human pilots tend to accelerate aggressively so their path is jerkier” Reid added The race capped off two years of research into drone autonomy funded by Google The company was interested in JPL’s work with vision-based navigation for spacecraft – technologies that can also be applied to drones To demonstrate the team’s progress JPL set up a timed trial between their AI and drone pilot Loo The team built three custom drones named Batman Joker and Nightwing and developed the complex algorithms the drones needed to fly at high speeds while avoiding obstacles These algorithms were integrated with Google’s Tango technology which JPL also worked on The drones were built to racing specifications and could easily go as fast as 129 kilometre per hour (kph) in a straight line But on the obstacle course set up in a JPL warehouse they could only fly at maximum 64 kph before they needed to apply the brakes Compared to Loo the drones flew more cautiously but consistently But Loo attained higher speeds and was able to perform impressive aerial corkscrews But he was limited by exhaustion something the AI-piloted drones did not have to deal with NASA said For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express
