high wire act seeking to soothe global outrage without baiting an army that is again showing its teeth Suu Kyi took office in 2016 as Myanmar’s first civilian leader after 50 years of junta rule File image of Aung San Suu Kyi AP She has since focused her energy on the delicate political dance between her civilian government and the generals who still hold many of the levers of power On Tuesday the Nobel laureate will give the biggest speech of her time in office The nationally-televised turn will break a near silence since the ulcerous ethnic and religious hatreds in western Rakhine state erupted into killings on 25 August sending 400000 Muslim minority Rohingya fleeing into Bangladesh Some 30000 ethnic Rakhine Buddhists and Hindus have also been internally displaced In an interview with the BBC UN secretary general Antonio Guterres said the stakes were high for Tuesday’s speech calling it a "last chance" to stop the unfolding humanitarian calamity "If she does not reverse the situation now then I think the tragedy will be absolutely horrible and unfortunately then I don’t see how this can be reversed in the future" he said Ethnic cleansing The latest violence was sparked by Rohingya militants’ raids on 30 police posts in Rakhine state The UN calls the army fightback a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing" with villages set ablaze to drive Rohingya civilians out Many abroad are puzzled as to how rights can be flagrantly denied to a specific group by a people who once nobly demanded their own in the face of a junta Suu Kyi’s televised address — likely at least in part to be in English —comes ahead of a meeting at the UN General Assembly in which Myanmar is expected to be hammered over the crisis But analysts say her power to stay the military is limited and her response thus far indicates she is choosing the lesser of two evils "She’s signalling that her chief priority is the relationship between the government and military and that the pogrom is secondary to that" Francis Wade author of ‘Myanmar’s Enemy Within:Buddhist Violence and the Making of the Muslim ‘Other” told AFP "This obviously raises questions about the quality of leadership she seeks to bring but also that the political game in Myanmar is worth the sacrifice of entire communities" ‘Bengalis’ not Rohingya Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) swept the board when the military permitted elections in 2015 Before they loosened their chokehold on power the generals wrote themselves into the constitution embedding their political future with a bloc of legislative seats and total control over security Over the last two years Suu Kyi’s gradualism and her refusal to upset the organisation that kept her under house arrest for almost two decades has seen the sprouting of the first green shoots of the rule of law in Myanmar But the eruption of violence in Rakhine and the pressure from the outside world for her to "do something about it" risks upsetting that balance All the more so in a country where the majority of the population shares the military’s view that Rohingya Muslims — whom it disparagingly calls "Bengalis" —are interlopers bent on taking land and resources from Buddhists A leader who bends too far to international will could lose the support of the people she governs In these circumstances observers say it is not hard to imagine another coup by an army that always used national security concerns to justify its iron-fisted rule From the ashes of Rakhine commander and chief Min Aung Hlaing is emerging as an unexpectedly popular figure defying deep mistrust of the military Through Facebook and Twitter he has successfully pitched his once reviled institution as the defender of Myanmar’s territorial sovereignty and the Buddhist faith against "extremist Bengali terrorists" On Saturday his Facebook feed repeated the widely-held domestic view that the Rohingya have "never been an ethnic group in Myanmar" With the army flexing its muscles Suu Kyi’s next steps have become increasingly treacherous A complex swirl of ethnic and religious rivalries incubated under five decades of military rule has toxified all debate inside Myanmar around the Rohingya The militant attacks of 25 August are seen by many Buddhists as confirmation of long-held fears that overseas-based Islamists are intent on taking over Rakhine state — the western gateway to wider Myanmar Fear has overridden empathy for the Rohingya who still trudge in wretched hungry lines to Bangladesh So far and despite the global finger-pointing Suu Kyi remains a galvanising force in Myanmar Her reticence to publically defend the Rohingya has been applauded across the political divide — even by notorious Buddhist nationalist monks "She is not your leader She is OUR leader" Mayzin Aye a businesswoman renowned for supporting Suu Kyi wrote on Facebook — where much of Myanmar’s discourse takes place "She is not an icon for us She is not a Saint for us She is our country’s leader . She gives up everything for our freedom from military rulers" Written by Express News Service | Pune | Published: January 15 2017 12:27 am Passengers may soon enjoy ‘airport-like facilities’ at the

Tilak Terminus in Mumbai and the ones in Thane Visakhapatnam Howrah Kamakhya Faridabad Jammu Tawi Udaipur City Kanpur Central Allahabad Secunderabad Vijaywada Ranchi Chennai Central Kozhikode Bangalore Cantonment Bhopal Mumbai Central Bandra Terminus Borivli and Indore The plan to develop the stations was placed before the Cabinet by Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and approved in 2015 It will be rolled out in a phased manner The Railway Board has identified 15 key parameters including separate arrival and departure terminals easy connectivity with local modes of transportation such as bus or Metro and accessibility from both sides of the city Facilities such as food courts retail outlets and medical facilities will also be available Divisional Railway Manager of Pune B K Dadabhoy said though he was yet to receive any communication about the selection of Pune station the scheme once implemented will be a “great leap” “This scheme is being implemented from Delhi… The transformation when it does happen will be a great leap forward for all of us” said Dadabhoy Incidentally it’s been over three years since a similar plan of development for Shivajinagar railway station on a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model was approved But nothing much has changed on the ground yet According to railway officials the plan has been delayed as the state government is yet to give its approval for the final plan and “they have put forward some alteration demands which are difficult to meet” For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI |

Hans who had suffered a tragic burn accident in childhood and had a severely scarred face “When he entered the room people looked away pretending he wasn’t there Some looked through him making him feel invisible with their behaviour This left a deep impact on me” recalls Woehrl Woehrl’s deep-seated distress found an outlet in In/Visible her latest project that documents the lives of women survivors of acid and burn attacks Currently showing at the Museum Natur und Mensch in Freiburg Germany the project is a mix of portrait and documentary imagery and focusses on the lives of women from India Pakistan Nepal Bangladesh Cambodia and Uganda “I wanted to know how these survivors dealt with their disfigurements and how societal attitudes had deepened their physical scars into their soul” says Woehrl French-German photographer Ann-Christine Woehrl Her journey began four years ago when she visited Vijayawada and met Dr Lakshmi Saleem a plastic surgeon who was offering a week-long operation programme for acid and burn attack victims at her clinic Here Woehrl was introduced to Neehari a woman from a small village nearby who had suffered 55 per cent burns in a self-immolating incident in a desperate attempt to escape an abusive marriage When she was 19 Neehari’s parents fixed her marriage without her permission When Neehari returned home three months later to unsympathetic parents she set herself ablaze killing her unborn child “She was the first woman I met for the project and I was amazed by her sheer strength She did not camouflage her past” says Woehrl After receiving a grant from Stiftung Kulturwerk a German cultural foundation Woehrl expanded the project’s reach and visited other countries She enlisted help from the Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI) an organisation that works towards rehabilitating acid and burn victims “It is a global form of violence spurred by different motives — economic situations jealousy dowry and rejection There was one commonality though they were all treated as outcasts because their appearance was different” she says Connecting with the local partner organisations of ASTI in different countries Woehrl sought help from their staff to translate the stories struggles and hopes of the women who had been maimed blinded and disfigured in a horrifying twist of fate Christine and Moses from Uganda Api from Bangladesh In Uganda she met Flavia a victim of an attack by a jilted lover In Pakistan it was Nusrat who had been married off on the condition that her brother would marry her husband’s sister When he chose another woman her husband and brother-in-law exacted revenge Sokneang from Cambodia was a karaoke singer who was attacked by the jealous wife of a man who was a frequent visitor at the club Through the Acid Survivors Foundation in India she also met Kolkata-based Makima whose neighbour’s mother threw acid on her for rejecting her son’s proposal “While the meetings involved them revisiting past demons they poured their hearts out Perhaps because after years of ostracisation they felt like their identities and stories were being acknowledged” says Woehrl In 2013 when she visited India again she saw that Neehari had undergone eight surgeries; she was living by herself in Hyderabad assisting Dr Saleem “Once on our way to celebrate her best friend’s birthday Neehari removed her scarf for the first time in public She called it her ‘independence day’” says Woehrl For every portrait Woehrl places her subject against a black background letting them be the sole focus of the image “The black backdrop helped neutralise their social environment and gave them a special frame in which they could present themselves as they felt rather than as tragic victims” Other images capture the women at different moments in their daily lives — Renuka from Nepal lifts a dumbbell over her head during an exercise routine while Flavia hangs out with her girlfriends The journey was emotionally challenging for Woehrl too as she interacted with her subjects for over two years: “I forged deep friendships with them There were feelings of abandonment when I would leave” In/Visible was also exhibited at the Ethnological Museum of Munich and Galerie Fait & Cause in Paris Woehrl is in talks to take it to more countries including India and will continue to collaborate with the ASTI and work closely with her subjects to spread awareness “Due to our discomfort the survivors end up with deep inner scars beyond their disfigurements I called it In/Visible as I wanted to

Californian Sam Querrey will play Marin Cilic of Croatia in the men’s semifinals on Friday (Source: Reuters) Related News When Masters champion Sergio Garcia sat in the Royal Box at Wimbledon last week he showed up in his green jacket from Augusta National Seemed fitting The tennis and golf tournaments seem to be each other’s counterparts in many ways starting with the reverence in which they’re held and the steps the private clubs that run them take to cultivate the events’ images There’s a reason kids grow up pretending they’re serving for the match on Centre Court at the All England Club or attempting a putt on the 18th green at Augusta National “This tournament has a special place in players’ careers In this sport there’s so much weight behind it and significance about it The aura of Wimbledon has probably always been the strongest of any … tournament” three-time champion Novak Djokovic said “I’m sure that most of the players on the tour if not all feel that” Sam Querrey certainly does The 29-year-old Californian who will play Marin Cilic of Croatia in the men’s semifinals on Friday made a point of noting that he was thrilled to have the best Grand Slam performance of his career at Wimbledon There’s no other place he’d rather have that sort of success “In my opinion it’s the best tournament It’s like the Masters for golf Everything about it is unique and fun The grounds are immaculate … It feels like a `bucket list’ thing not only to players but to fans more so than the other three Slams” Querrey said “It’s had that aura around it for a long time Hopefully that will continue on” So what is it about Wimbledon that earned that status “I can’t name one thing It’s just nicer Attention to detail in the locker rooms in the food area the practice courts” Querrey said “Everything is just perfect in a way” As Francesca Schiavone an Italian who won the 2010 French Open and says her appreciation for Wimbledon has grown in recent years put it: “Who wouldn’t want to play at this tournament” Part of the appeal of Wimbledon a tournament now known simply as The Championships it first was contested in 1877 when Spencer Gore beat William Marshall 6-1 6-2 6-4 for the title and the Masters which “only” dates to 1934 is a sense of stepping back in time The All England Club is the only major tennis tournament that still uses grass courts which in itself is anachronistic: That once was also the surface for the US Open and Australian Open but decades ago It’s the only one with rules mandating all-white attire for players The only one with no play planned for the fortnight’s middle Sunday (last year was only the fourth time in the tournament’s lengthy history that rain in Week 1 necessitated scheduling matches on that day) The only one without advertising signs at the courts Instead the tournament’s 13 official “partners” as they’re called “They’re very much partners not sponsors” said Mick Desmond the All England Club’s commercial director are made a part of the event’s fabric more naturally The bottled water players drink for example Or a particular alcoholic beverage similar to a wine cooler that’s sold to spectators “We’re not going to change our strategy on that Wimbledon wouldn’t be Wimbledon” Desmond said “The fans here and the fans around the world know who our partners are You don’t have to knock somebody on the head and put banners in their face every 5 seconds … It’s not in our DNA” There’s a similar philosophy at Augusta National and the two clubs trade notes on best practices “We share the same kind of view that we are big annual tournaments that are hosted in the same venue each year and have clarity in terms of what our brand is And I repsect what they do too” Desmond said “I think it’s probably the reasons we are the premium brands in both our sports” At the Masters there is no running on the golf course No cell phones are allowed on property during the tournament’s four rounds Caddies are required to wear white coveralls with a green number on the front that corresponds with when their player checked in; the defending champion’s caddie always wears “1” There are only 4 minutes of TV commercials per hour Each event also is proud of its idiosyncrasies Wimbledon has its strawberries and cream and the “pop” of Champagne corks in the stands The Masters has its Pimiento cheese and egg salad sandwiches And yet for all that remains the same around the grounds of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (its full formal name) Wimbledon does manage to move along with the times in some respects There is now a video replay challenge system on the principal courts for example Centre Court first opened in 1922 had a retractable roof added in 2009 No 1 Court is due to have its own roof in 2019 “A lot of changes I’m happy they invested a lot I think there’s more to come” seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer said “I think it’s going to be really interesting the next 20

complex They are heavily guarded and non-personnel are not permitted to enter the premises Political leaders or civillians thus cannot be allowed inside” the official said Another official said in case the Mayor refuses to accept the Byculla bungalow the other alternatives are to choose a property in the suburbs or to construct a bungalow on a municipal plot in the city region “There are a few vacant bungalows including a heritage one near Powai Lake which is currently vacant and the Mayor can move in there There are no other bungalows in the city and if the mayor wants a residence in South
