(Source: Express File) Top News The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) is planning to hold a cricket lecture in memory of late ICC and BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya during the upcoming Indian home season Dalmiya passed away last September as sitting BCCI president after a brief illness While the CAB has not yet zeroed in on any date but it could be held either during the second Test match against New Zealand or during the ODI match against England later in the season “The BCCI has its own MAK Pataudi Memorial Lecture Since Mr Dalmiya was the longest serving CAB president as well a big name in Indian cricket administration we feel that a cricketing lecture in his memory would be a fitting tribute by one and all” a senior CAB official said However with the Lodha Committee Recommendations looming large on every state association CAB wants to get the timing right “Every senior BCCI official currently is preoccupied with Lodha reforms Although the organising a cricket lecture has got nothing to do with it but we would want a full attendance from who’s who in BCCI” said the official Asked if it’s possible during the New Zealand series when Eden Gardens will host the second Test the official said: “We would want a date where ICC chairman Shashank Manohar BCCI president Anurag Thakur and all the BCCI officials are present We also need a former great either from

Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsOn 5 October The New York Times published a report on the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misbehaviour The paper quoted actresses whoclaimed that they had been harassed or assaulted by Weinstein one of the most powerful individuals in the film industry who has produced Oscar-winning movies such asThe King’s Speech After the report more women came out with their stories of abuse from Weinstein (by the end of October the list of accusers had over 80 women) and a couple of days later he was sacked from his own company by the board of directors Over the month more women many of them famous began to tell their stories openly and now the focus turned to other powerful men These included the director James Toback (accused by over 238 women) actors Dustin Hoffman Kevin Spacey Steven Seagal and Ben Affleck the stand up comedian Louis CK the political analyst Mark Halperin and the former US president George HW Bush Similar accusations have threatened the Senate campaign of a one-time favourite Republican candidate and ex judge Roy Moore and the sitting Democratic Senator Al Franken Many of these men have apologised for their behaviour including president Bush and it is now clear that the women’s courage had uncovered an epidemic It seems something has changed in America even though this is not the first time that a wealthy and influential man has been exposed in similar fashion File image of a protest after the 2012 Delhi gangrape AP Only in 2014 one of America’s most famous comedians Bill Cosby was accused of drugging and assaulting dozens of women Most of the cases here were outside the statute of limitations (depending on the state the crime cannot be prosecuted if it is reported between three and 30 years after it took place) However one case against Cosby is in court and it is likely to be decided some time next year While Cosby’s case was widely publicised it did not produce the sort of general response that the Weinstein case did and now every day is producing a report or two of a famous man who has been exposed A campaign on Twitter began to take what was essentially an American moment an international turn So what has been the reaction in India It began with a list of academics who were accused of harassment The accusers were anonymous but were apparently known to the individual who made the list public a student in America named Raya Sarkar One of the individuals on the list the director of the Madras Music Academy has resigned after his name was published Although it was unclear if he had quit because of the allegation While the list has been attacked for being anonymous it does not come as a surprise given the history of sexual violence in India The government’s data says that 99 percent of Indian victims of sexual violence do not report the crime to the police Even in the United States only about a third or so of victims report because this is a crime that is a personal attack and the victim does not feel comfortable recounting the details In India we have several other factors that are at work One is a social and cultural landscape where women are often blamed for sexual violence committed on them Ours is a society that unfairly loads ideas of ‘honour’ on the person of the female And then ours is also a society where the powerful man is almost never punished for anything wrong that he does In Bollywood the power is disproportionately in the hands of a few men whether they are actors or producers or directors The woman who makes an allegation against them can forget working in the industry again in addition to being humiliated and the men can get away with almost anything In politics things are worse Justice is impossible against the powerful political figure who is a predator Political parties show absolutely no qualms in violating the privacy of individuals Innocent women are victimised merely for falling in love as the cases of the secretly recorded and intrusive ‘sex tape scandals’ show Given all of this baggage it would be wonderful if this becomes the moment when things change If Indian women feel encouraged by the climate?
