Related News A SPECIAL Christmas surprise lies in store for Std IX students studying in SSC Board schools especially those weak in studies Acting on instructions from the state principal secretary the deputy director of education has instructed the education officers to ensure that the practice of schools holding back a high number of Std IX students in order to achieve a perfect pass percentage in Board exams be stopped with immediate effect Ramchandra Jadhav Deputy Director of Education said the secondary education officer of Zilla Parishad has been instructed to review all the state-board affiliated schools based on the previous data collected from the last few years on students enrolled in Std IX and Std X which would give an indication of this trend “The instructions have come from the principal secretary to ensure that the trend of withholding large number of students in Std IX by schools to achieve a good pass percentage in Std X be stopped An inquiry will be conducted by secondary education officer to keep a tab on schools where such numbers are high or are suspected to indulge in such practices or where parents complain to us” said Jadhav Nand Kumar principal secretary of education said “Till now we had been keeping a watch on schools but now the issue needs to be understood and resolved Hence we have instructed the officers to hold meetings with school principals and ensure that the message is conveyed to them Also teachers will be counselled when necessary” he said The statewide discussions have been prompted by the recent Unified District Information System for Education (U-DISE) for the year 2014-15 report in which a sharp spike in failures in Std IX exams was noticed confirming speculations that failures in Std IX are encouraged by schools to better their ranking The U-Dise data showed that while there were only 1310 underperformers in Std VIII the number of students who failed in Std IX stood at 20154 students nearly 16 times more failures in Std IX in comparison to Std VIII Many schools had then blamed it on the no-failure policy up to Std VIII The move has been lauded by parents “When my son got promoted to Std X two of his friends were detained in Std IX But the school conducted re-exam after a fortnight and these students scored above 50 per cent It is the responsibility of schools as well to ensure weak students

collected during the Champions Trophy will be preserved for 10 years Top News Cricket teams including India will undergo blood-testing for the first time as per the World Anti-Doping Agency guidelines at the ICC Champions Trophy to be played in June this year It’s learnt by The Indian Express that the Indian players were given an explanatory lecture about the effectiveness of the tests by an ICC doping team during the first ODI between India and England in Pune last month According to a source in the BCCI they were informed about why it was high time that cricket too adopted the more high-tech methods of preventing and eventually eradicating the evil of performance-enhanced drugs from sport Watch What Else Is Making News “Cricket has been WADA compliant since 2006 but our players still only undergo in-competition random tests where their urine samples are collected But there are a lot of performance enhancing drugs and steroids in circulation out there which aren’t visible in urine samples but will show up in your blood Blood-testing is part of what WADA terms ‘smart testing’” the source explained “The cricketers were understandably wary of having their blood drawn But they were briefed on how it’s for the good of the game and they agreed” he added ALSO READ |Does T20 increase the risk of substance abuse incricket Blood-testing though is only one of the new procedures that is being introduced in the cricket world Cricketers will from hereon also each have an ‘athlete biological passport’ being maintained which is a norm for all other sportspersons in the world A biological passport basically will be a ‘longitudanal’ blood profile of an athlete that’ll be used as a reference point The blood sample collected during the Champions Trophy will be preserved for 10 years Fresh samples will be collected from each player once every six months and compared with the original sample to see if there are any abnormal variations “The blood profile therefore will be studied every six months This is a more sophisticated technique which will help in conducting more targeted tests and provide clearer evidence of doping” the source said Andre Russell during a hearing where he was handed out a one-year ban for not providing his whereabouts That’s not all WADA’s smart testing protocol also recommends sports-specific profiling In case of cricket the blood samples will also be used for specific growth hormone tests in certain cases “You would look at the explosiveness of a batsman or a fast bowler for example and do a growth hormone test just to eliminate the doubt of whether any illegal methods have been used” he said Cricket has overall not been engulfed by the menace of doping like a number of other high-profile sports Conventional wisdom has always suggested that cricket being a skill-based sport hasn’t pushed its players to use any illegal substances to enhance their performance Potential doping problem But the mushrooming of franchise-based T20 leagues and the emergence of ‘freelance agents’ in the cricket world have pushed cricket closer to a potential doping problem Some even liken T20 cricket to baseball a power-based sport that’s been riddled with doping issues for decades now And the temptation for cricketers to go rogue in terms of steroid-abuse has never been more real “In baseball a game is won or lost with a home-run The same goes for T20 cricket It’s a game based on explosiveness in batting bowling and fielding The stakes are high and the money is massive and there are so many players now who don’t necessarily come under the scanner of their national boards” the source said Statistically too cricket remains a ‘clean’ sport Since 2003 Pradeep Sangwan is the only Indian cricketer to have tested positive for doping Globally there haven’t been more than three or four cases either While the percentage of drug-abusers in other sports stands at 14 it’s close to negligible when it comes to cricket But is it just because the techniques of testing haven’t been as effective “Urine-testing has so far only given us one positive result But does that mean we should be happy that cricket remains a clean sport or are we sitting on a ticking bomb Blood-testing and smart-testing could provide us the answer” he said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by

actress Helen in film Teesri Manzil Related News For Years now coffee shops and bars have come alive with never-ending debates among music aficionados on which was the defining decade of Hindi film music No one’s won that argument yet Let us instead take a step back and look at how the music changed shades down the decades Hindi films being an offshoot of the traditional drama/jatra/tamasha/nautanki culture the music in the 1930s and early 1940s was theatrical with limited but baroque instrumentation more reliance on major scales and decidedly slow in tempo 1950s was the first decade of an independent India with Bombay revelling in its new-found status as the capital of Hindi cinema Shankar Jaikishan’s expansive 100-piece orchestration in Awara (1951) was celebratory of that spirit Their big-bang sound reflected their confidence and was their contribution to Hindi film music Salil Chowdhury’s playing field was western classical music and Indian folk charting out soundtracks like Madhumati (1958) and Do Bigha Zamin (1953) Naushad one of the highest paid composers of the 1940s stayed close to genres like Hindustani classical and UP folk SD Burman went further east digging into the roots of East Bengal folk switching quickly to western in the West-inspired noir sagas of Baazi (1951) and Jaal (1952) while composing to Urdu poetry in Pyaasa (1957) and Kaagaz ke Phool (1959) Each was distinct from the other But they collectively laid the foundation of the Sixties’ sound in all its diversity With the exception of C Ramachandra Shankar-Jaikishan and Naushad none of the others really hit their peak in the 1950s It seemed as if the entire galaxy of stars had been lined up in the same decade the 1960s The curtain raiser to the “1960 Nite” was Shankar-Jaikishen’s big sound that continued to get stronger; they made music for tragedies (Dil Ek Mandir 1963) as well as the frolicking score of Shammi Kapoor’s Junglee (1961) and showed remarkable range — from the classical-based Jhanak jhanak tori baje payaliya (Mere Huzoor 1968) to champagne evenings in Paris In the 1960s OP Nayyar’s talent in melody became more apparent than his (commonly perceived) hoof-trot rhythm as evident in daydreamy scores of Mere Sanam (1965) and Kashmir ki Kali (1964) Madan Mohan with three haunting Lata ghazals scored his first big box-office hit in Woh Kaun Thi (1964) His ghazals with Talat Mahmood and Lata in Jahan Ara (1964) too would become golden oldies in the years to come Roshan monopolised the qawwali territory with three pearls in Barsaat ki Raat (1960) The sheer throttle behind Ye ishq ishq hai showed how the qawwali could set up a pulsating climax to a movie Roshan also has to his credit the composition that was voted the ‘Best Ever’ in an Outlook poll in 2006 — Man re tu kaahe na dheer dhare from Chitralekha (1964) Salil Chowdhury became almost synonymous with the flute The intro flute solo in Lata’s Ja re ud ja re panchi (Maya 1961) is like an requiem for the era Rabindranath Tagore would have been proud of Chowdury for the way he musicalised the father-daughter separation in Ae mere pyare watan (Kabuliwallah 1961) Jaidev arguably the unluckiest man in Hindi film music history composed the immortal score for Hum Dono (1961) Despite this Navketan never used him again His quantum of solace would have been the fact that Lata called Allah tero naam as one of her 10 most favorite numbers Meanwhile SD Burman had guided musical history to a new milestone in Guide (1965) In Jewel Thief (1967) too the dark shades of Dev Anand in a starkly different avatar was supported by Burman’s blues-based background scores Playback music had finally carved out an independent identity of its own Each year was a new trip to Planet Melody Suddenly there were wannabe shaayars in every college and friends’ circle An occasional heartbreak was an excuse to break into Shakeel Badayuni’s Mili khak me

Har dil jo pyar karega who gaana gayega before you met her next For the multi-timing street-smart there was a ready excuse by Majrooh Sultanpuri: Ye dil na hota bechara For the coy women of the era Raja Mehdi Ali Khan’s Aapki nazron ne samjha seemed to express all that unsaid heartache Midway through the ’60s party the Batmen landed up Laxmikant-Pyarelal kangarooed into the top slots with Parasmani (1963) and Dosti (1964) After a seven-year wait RD Burman’s career zoomed up with Teesri Manzil (1966) and then Padosan (1968) bringing rhythm brass woodwind to the forefront while retaining his folk DNA His innovations included a double-track recording for the first time in the number Kya janu sajan (Baharon ke Sapne 1967) the Bossa Nova beat in Asha’s Mar dalega dard-e-jigar (Pati Patni 1966) and the Echolite in the Manna Dey number Pyar karta ja (Bhoot Bungla 1964) Pancham also taught the industry the importance of background music in the screenplay — Teesri Manzil (1966) and The Train being examples The more sedate Kalyanji-Anandji took firm steps in Himalay ki God Mein (1965) and Jab Jab Phool Khile (1965) While melody peaked in came newer arrangement styles coupled with confident experimentation like subtle use of western instruments and secondary percussion that accentuated (and not replaced) the core melody The importance of technicalities such as balancing sound mixing and acoustics became obvious Mohammed Rafi Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle were in their mid-30s or early 40s and in the prime of their lives Their dates were full many weeks in advance of the recordings Manna Dey was a niche player but an important one Mukesh continued his pathos-laden streak of the 1940s and the 1950s While the star-singers of the early and mid-1950s Talat Mahmood and Geeta Dutt receded into oblivion Mahendra Kapoor after a decade-long struggle became a popular Punjabi voice Towards the end of the decade Kishore Kumar the singer and one of the busiest actors of the 1950s made a critical choice (prompted by Anandji) of getting full-time into playback singing His decision struck the Bombay coast like a tornado in late 1969 with Aradhana There would be no other

Gavaskar taking on the great West Indies fast bowlers in the 1970s or the 16-year-old Sachin Tendulkar fighting back afterbeing hit on the nose by Pakistan’s Waqar Younis the history of Indian batting has never been short of romanticism Batting excites Indians and elaborate epithets (‘The Wall’ or ‘Very Very Special’) have been common Wake up any Indian in the middle of the night and ask him to narrate you an anecdote that involves our batters and he will do so with the same pride that he had when he spoke about it for the first time Ask the same person to recount a story about our fast bowlers and he maynot be able to do so with the same clarity There would be a reference to a Kapil Dev or a Zaheer Khan or even a Javagal Srinath but you will soon realise that cricket in India is more a game of batsmen than bowlers especially fast bowlers It is only when a bowlerhits the 140kph mark or more on the speed gun that he is taken note ofin this batsmen-dominated country Very few

The fast bowler continued to impress in his debut season for the Delhi Daredevils Yadav was rewarded for his efforts when he replaced the injured Praveen Kumar in the Indian squad for the 2010 World T20 He was also named in the Indian Test squad for the tour of South Africa but it wasn’t until 2011 that he made his debut in the West Indies He picked nine wickets in that series and was included in the squad for the Australian series that followed India suffered a whitewash at the hands of Australia in 2011-’12 after a similar debacle in England earlier But the series Down Under was probably Yadav’s best performance in his brief career He was India’s second highest wicket-taker with 14 wickets which included his maiden five-wicket haul in Perth Since then Yadav has made steady progress He has been an integral part of both the ODI and the Test sides His contributions in the 2015 World Cup were instrumental in helping India reach the semi-final He was the third highest wicket-taker in
