the West Mercia Police in England’s Midlands can never get over the erratic compliance of traffic rules “In Mumbai I’ve observed that a lot of people do not wear helmets but do stop at red lights In

intimidated when a crowd gathers around a driver and they are outnumbered You need to have more people at checkpoints so that they don’t feel outnumbered” says the expert Udall is in favour of a no-tolerance approach by the police towards enforcing traffic rules “When I come back in five years I would want to see 90 per cent of motorists wearing helmets With strong enforcement I would like to see a reduction in deaths on the road” he says After 30 years in the West Merica Police Udall has seen senseless deaths closely “I’ve been in the sharp end in scraping bodies off the road It is a

brutally exposed and the team touched a new low in fifty overs cricket (Source: PTI) Related News IT’S no longer a captain’s headache it’s now a migraine Your medium-pacers are over-reliant on swing lack the pace to push batsmen back Your fast bowlers have the pace to rush the batsmen but leak even more runs You’re at the stage of your career where you want to play a more steadying hand at No4 but there’s nobody in the lower-order to finish games You push your No4 to No3 where he scores two half-centuries and then for the next few matches he has no fixed spot Your tail is too pronounced with the No7 and No11 carrying a nearly identical batting average You pick the best available seaming all-rounder in the country but you don’t have the guts to pick him because deep inside you know he’s not going to make a huge difference You are forced to pick three spinners regardless of whether the pitch demands it or not because you don’t have a strike seamer who you trust There are two bowlers in the country you do trust but both are injured And then horror of horrors you get asked ‘what went wrong’ on a day your bowlers have conceded 438 in 50 overs and your team’s been demolished by 214 runs in what was billed to be a high-profile series-decider Share This Article Related Article No wonder MS Dhoni was a tad miffed on Sunday night even if his curt response did evoke laughter around the press conference room with even the Indian captain struggling to contain a grin “Sir don’t ask ‘where did we make mistakes’ The entire game was a mistake We have conceded nearly 450 runs and you are asking where we went wrong” said Dhoni Going into the final ODI at the Wankhede Stadium the two teams seemed to have run each other really close But once the carnage was done with and South Africa had created history with their first-ever bilateral ODI series victory in India the massive gulf between the two teams was way too evident And even Dhoni would agree that the 3-2 score-line is quite misleading India won two games but a closer look throws up more problems The second of the wins came on a Chennai track which helped the spinners and the first came when South Africa lost their plot completely It’s not that Indians were spectacularly good but that South Africans were bad If a team needs a turner or wants its opposition to slip up then something is surely wrong The truth is that to quote Dhoni the “team doesn’t look that settled” Predictable problems On the one hand you have a Protea outfit which looks well-stocked in all departments while the Indians find themselves in a state of disarray It’s not to say they lack in personnel but in ODI cricket it’s ‘settled teams’ like South Africa who win consistently as their record suggests India’s problems are so predictable and yet almost without any clear solutions that a captain can dread his migraine Take Bhuvneshwar Kumar who can look almost rudderless when he can’t swing the ball There is almost an case of identity crisis Once used as an out-and-out new-ball bowler who would often bowl out most of his quota in his first spell he is now almost coaxed into over-extending himself In an effort to expand his repertoire he did develop yorkers and used it to a great effect in the IPL but seems to have lost the ability to swing in non-conducive conditions So is he a new-ball bowler now or a end-over specialist That brings us to two World Cup stars the tournament where India largely rode on the back of their seamers to reach the semi-finals Mohit Sharma and Umesh Yadav who excelled in Australia have gone way over 7 runs per over ever since in the subcontinent Dhoni summarized it well when he said “We tried to going for fast bowlers — people who can bowl very quick (read Umesh Yadav) — but we realised they are actually giving the opposition more runs We are better off playing with people who bowl line and length (read Mohit Sharma)” Or so he thought but Mohit is also forced to extend himself In his own captain’s words he is at best “a third seamer” who is forced to play the lead role Clearly it’s case of bowlers unable to step up at this level Again Dhoni hits the nail: “If you see any other nation in one or two years they (fast bowlers) graduate to become their strike bowlers We aren’t able to do that Once you put in a lot of effort in an individual and if he doesn’t come good then again a vacuum gets created” The spinners can’t be blamed much as they played their part in both the Indians winsYou are playing three spinners because you don’t have a strike seamer but can India afford to use the same strategy outside the country especially with the next two big ICC events scheduled to be held in England Muddle-order This bowlers dilemma isn’t the worst of things to ail Dhoni who can point out that two of his best bowlers R Ashwin and Mohammad Shami were absent What about his batsmen though This is the cream of the country and look at the problems facing them Suresh Raina can’t be accommodated up the order or find his feet down despite having played well-over 200 games Ajinkya Rahane hasn’t been accommodated down the order nor given a space at the top So he is neither here nor there a reflection of team management’s lack of clarity All this middle order woes are made to seem worse because the opener Shikhar Dhawan is going through a run drought All this mess is affecting Dhoni the batsman also and more cruelly showing up his waning skills as a world-class finisher In an ideal world in these new fielding rules of an extra fielder Dhoni can slide up and be perfect at No 4 but with Raina & co Failing and appalling strikes of the No 7 — he has tried four batsmen in that slot since the World Cup — he is forced to bat lower down India’s misery and especially that of their captain’s was perfectly encapsulated by self-deprecating exchange between Dhoni and AB de Villiers on Sunday night at the end of the game Just as Dhoni was exiting the press conference room he bumped into the incoming de Villiers You couldn’t quite hear what they said to each other You didn’t have to The expressions said them all There was one captain

threatened on a scale without precedent in independent Indias history Agricultural growth is pivotal to any strategy to reduce hunger and poverty The fact that it is suffering is also evident from the fact that food inflation is at a three-year high and supply is unable to keep up with the rising demand Any strategy to rectify this problem must focus heavily on creating easy access to cheap credit for small and marginal farmers R Ramkumarassociate professor at TISShas studied rural credit extensively and observed that the acceptance of a majority of the recommendations of the Narasimham Committee on Banking Sector Reforms resulted in diluting priority sector lending norms This led to a large-scale closure of rural bank branches and skewed credit deployment A lot that had been achievedover several yearswith respect to rural credit was reversed after the 1991 liberalisation by the then finance minister The rate of growth of agricultural credit fell from 68 per cent to a

liberalisation Of the total increase in credit supply between 2000 and 2011about 33 per cent was contributed by indirect financeup from 18 per cent in 1990 It is preposterous that the expansion of credit is thus publicisedwhen in fact the proportion of advances with a credit limit of less than Rs 2 lakh declined from 826 per cent in 1990 to 443 per cent in 2010 A loan above Rs 2 lakh can scarcely be termed as one to a small or marginal farmer Even though such farmers comprise 80 per cent of the agricultural populationthey only got 571 per cent of the total institutional credit in 2011-12 On the other handthe percentage of advances with a credit limit above Rs 10 crore increased sharplyfrom 13 per cent in 1990 to 204 per cent in 2010 This category accounted for all the growth in indirect finance Even in the direct finance categoryloans up to a credit limit of more than Rs 1 crore grew rapidly The disparity in terms of access to banking services has widened For
