party that got only four seats in the Lok Sabha election put up such a fight If BJP leaders examine why they may discover that for far too many Indians the Modi magic is slowly evaporating into the ether The main reason is that in too many important ways it is beginning to look as if all that the new government has done in the past few months is settle easily into the ugly mould created over a decade that will be counted as one of India’s most wasted decades The ugliness is most visible to our poorest most helpless citizens and it is from them that the Aam Aadmi Party is getting most of its support This is because not only for them is there not the smallest sign yet of achche din there is distressing evidence that nothing has changed at all Listen to what happened last week to a group of street people I work with in Mumbai They are routinely moved off the footpath near the Vidhan Sabha when there is a session of the Assembly so they built themselves fragile huts on a PWD wasteland at the edge of the sea Then inevitably came the ‘demolition’ When they tried to resist more than 20 people got arrested including young mothers Among them was a young woman I have known since she was a child When I tried to get her released I was told I would need to go to court the next day But before I could do this her husband tried to take her very small baby to her in custody and was beaten within an inch of his life by policemen He was a sick man already and now has a serious head injury The next day he came with me to a courtroom that was beyond Kafkaesque in its appearance Plaster peeled off walls stacks of dusty files filled every available space and wooden benches were covered in a thick layer of bird droppings The majesty of justice was hard to imagine When we found a lawyer it turned out that bail would be at least Rs 1000 for each person If I had not been able to help there would be no bail Later I met the demolition officials and asked where these people were expected to move They had no answer Nor did the police Not even when the victims reminded them that they did not expect such things to happen under the ‘Modi sarkar’ When ordinary Indians voted for ‘parivartan’ it was in these things that they expected to see real change Why is a newly-elected BJP government in Maharashtra unable to deal with Mumbai’s biggest problems more humanely It is a question that the Prime Minister needs to address or he will end up being blamed for the things that remain unchanged It was in his name that the BJP won and one of the promises he made was that every Indian would have a roof over his head So far the Prime Minister continues to look good but if he pays attention to what his ministers are doing he will find that too many have been infected by the Lutyens disease If this column has campaigned tirelessly for officials ministers and MPs to be evicted from their vast colonial bungalows on India’s most expensive real estate it is because I have seen the humblest nicest people change No sooner do they ensconce themselves in Lutyens Delhi at vast expense to taxpayers than they start behaving as our colonial masters may once have done A strut creeps into their gait and arrogance and complacency become their dominant characteristics They are encouraged by fawning Lutyens courtiers The same people who once infested the court of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi have moved quietly to the other side Speaking of the dynasty let me say that I was not the only one shocked to see Sonia Gandhi seated at the high table in the banquet for Barack and Michelle Obama She returned this gracious gesture by getting her spokesmen to start spreading the word that the reason why the US President delivered his homily on religious harmony was because she had asked him to Next time the Prime Minister wants to be gracious he should keep in mind that had there been a reversal of roles he would never have been at the high table He should remember that this is the same woman who once called him ‘a merchant of death’ And not to be outshone by Mummy Rahul Gandhi targeted the Prime Minister through the campaign for Delhi mocking him for his ‘Rs 10 lakh suit’ Achche din are beginning to seem dangerously far away Follow Tavleen Singh on Twitter @ tavleen_singh For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express

overseas Test matches Sanjay Bangar will continue as the batting coach of the team and all the appointments are till the 2019 World Cup The wait for India’s coach had threatened to turn into a suspenseful never-ending drama just a day after the interviews of the candidates Monday had ended with Sourav Ganguly saying the final decision could take a few days as Virat Kohli holidaying in America had to be consulted However things escalated dramatically on Tuesday with news reports anointing Shastri as the next coach before the Indian cricket board stepped in the evening to deny them But a few hours later the BCCI authenticated it confirming that India’s new coach is indeed Shastri and also announced the names of Zaheer and Dravid READ:In Zaheer Khan Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli get a left-handedcomplement Tuesday had dawned with the news that the head of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) Vinod Rai had set a deadline to the coach process: he wanted the BCCI to decide and announce the name of the coach by Tuesday evening By afternoon at an event Ganguly responded to Rai’s statements “We will speak to him (Rai) I will speak to him He is a very respected man He (Rai) has got the right (to ask us) The reason why we wanted to (wait) was because Virat is on a holiday to America and you don’t want to disturb him in the break This afternoon I was supposed to go to Delhi but that has been cancelled” Ganguly said The evening broke with feverish speculation about Shastri’s appointment before the BCCI stepped in to issue a denial and state that the process was still on “No decision has been made on the appointment of the new coach the CAC (Cricket Advisory Committee) is still deliberating over it” BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhury said

that the process was completed and Shastri will be India’s new coach and would be assisted by Dravid and Zaheer A role for Dravid Ever since his international retirement in 2012 and IPL retirement in 2013 Dravid has found a way to be associated with the development of junior cricketers He is the coach of India A and U-19 sides and has already found praise from the likes of Hardik Pandya to Mumbai teenager Prithvi Shaw “I made my comeback to the Indian team in two-and-a-half months when many said I wouldn’t come back even in two years I should thank Rahul sir as well he went out of his way and talked me up I still remember when I got out a couple of times in the one-dayers he used to ask me to come and sit next to him and tell me ‘Hardik you are the one guy who has the talent to represent India so you need to express yourself and take charge of situations” the all-rounder said READ:Rahul Dravid Profile: Mr Dependable gets specialrole In its press release the Indian cricket board described Zaheer thus: “Mr Khan is a contemporary cricketer who assumed the mentoring role to a young fast bowling unit even during his playing days with India His inputs will be of immense value to our young fast bowlers who have shown tremendous potential in the last couple of years” Not many can argue with that assessment Zaheer retired from international and first-class cricket in October 2015 but has continued playing and captaining in the IPL Such has been his influence on the Delhi Daredevils that talented Australian fast bowler Pat Cummings who played in the IPL after harassing the Indians in the Test series was effusive in his praise for Zaheer “I wish I could bring Zaheer back to Australia with me I have enjoyed working with him” Cummins had talked about how Zaheer liberated him from worrying too much about field placements or conceding boundaries “‘You want to bowl a yorker bowl a yorker you want to bowl a bouncer bowl a bouncer’” Cummins said about what Zaheer told him during an IPL game ALSO READ:Zaheer Khan Profile: India’s ‘thinking bowler’ gets a newrole TA Sekhar part of Delhi team management said Zaheer has been teaching Cummins how to bowl cutters and slower

America the West Edmonton Mall in Canada London’s Oxford Street and sites in Paris Mall of America and West Edmonton Mall issued statements saying they were implementing extra security measures "This latest statement from al Shabaab reflects the new phase we’ve evolved to in the global terrorist threat in that you have groups such as al Shabaab and ISIL publicly calling for independent actors in their homelands to carry out attacks" Johnson told the CNN program "State of the Union" using an acronym for the militant group Islamic State Staff Sergeant Brent Meyer of Canada’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police said authorities are looking into the video but "there is no evidence at this time of any specific or imminent threat to Canadians" A spokesman said London police were aware of the video and were assessing it Asked about the threat to Mall of America one of the world’s largest shopping complexes Johnson said: "Anytime a terrorist organization calls for an attack on a specific place we’ve got to take that seriously" He advised people going to the Mall of America to be particularly careful Minnesota is home to a sizeable Somali population US law enforcement officials have been concerned about the potential for radicalization among some of the community A Minnesota man was indicted last week on charges of conspiring to support Islamic State and lying to federal agents investigating recruitment by militant groups Prosecutors said dozens of people from the Minneapolis-St Paul area many of them Somali-Americans have traveled or attempted to travel overseas to support groups such as Islamic State or al Shabaab since 2007 "I’m very concerned about the serious potential threat of independent actors here in the United States We’ve seen this now in Europe We’ve seen this in Canada" Johnson said Mall of America is a large private mall in Bloomington Minnesota that has about 40 million visitors a year and contributes nearly $2 billion in annual economic activity to the state of Minnesota according to its website The West Edmonton Mall in Alberta Canada gets about 308 million visitors a year and has the world’s largest parking lot according to its website Oxford
