Pune University postpones Indian History Congress


first_imgThe 79th session of the Indian History Congress (IHC) that was to be held in the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) between December 28 and 30 has been “indefinitely postponed” by university authorities allegedly due to a shortage of funds.The university put up a statement on its website on Wednesday.The IHC, considered the premier body of academic and professional historians in the country and which boasts a membership of over 7,000 academics, said it was “shocked” and “deeply disappointed” at the university’s last-minute decision.On Thursday, SPPU organising committee member professor Radhika Seshan said that the ‘Khelo India’ programme scheduled between January 9 and 20, 2019, in the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex at Balewadi, meant that the facility would be unavailable for housing delegates coming to the IHC.“We have asked the IHC for a postponement till February or March owing to shortage of funds and because of the Khelo India programme. The loss of the Balewadi Sports Complex means that we would have to arrange for hotels to house the delegates. This would add to our costs,” she said.Though the IHC was scheduled in advance, she said that the neck-to-neck schedules of the congress and the ‘Khelo India’ event was the reason given by authorities for not making the Balewadi facility available to the SPPU. Ms. Seshan denied suggestions of any ‘political pressure’ on the university to host the IHC.Over 2,000 delegatesMore than 2,000 delegates from across India were expected at the Congress. According to SPPU authorities, the cost of hosting an event at this scale would come to ₹1.5 crore.“It is a matter of pride for us and we would still be happy to host. We hope that the IHC’s executive committee will agree to our request for a postponement,” Ms. Seshan said. When asked if the varsity would be able to secure funds if the IHC agreed to a postponement, she said that the organising committee had the full support of the SPPU.In a note put up on the IHC website on Wednesday, Professor Mahalaxmi Ramakrishnan, secretary, IHC said: “We had received an email from [university authorities] on the night of December 11 which said that due to financial difficulties and lack of arrangements for accommodation of delegates, they have at the last moment taken this unilateral decision. This morning [December 12], the website of SPPU carried the announcement of the postponement of the IHC, without the approval of the executive committee (EC) of the IHC. We have written to the Vice-Chancellor of SPPU expressing our deep anguish and asking him to ensure that the local delegate fee is returned immediately to the members.”Ms. Ramakrishnan further said that the IHC regretted that its members were being put to great inconvenience at this late hour but assured them that the 79th session of the congress would be held at a future date, the dates and venue of which would be duly conveyed to all members.Ms. Seshan, however, said that most delegates had not yet asked for the fee refund and had inquired about future dates.The IHC, which prides itself with the promotion and encouragement of the scientific study of Indian history, has often taken a critical stance in the past towards attempts at rewriting history on the basis of myth.The Congress met for the first time in 1935 in Pune city under the auspices of the Bharat Itihas Sanshodhak Mandal and on the initiative of the renowned historian, Professor D.V. Potdar.A strong link with the city constituted the rationale for the congress to be held in Pune this time. Distinguished historians from Maharashtra and Pune including Professor D.V. Potdar, G.H. Khare and Prof. H.D. Sankalia among others have served as past presidents of the IHC.The history body’s link with Maharashtra is further exemplified by the fact that the most prestigious prize that the IHC awards is named after V.K. Rajwade, the great Maratha archivist and historian of King Shivaji.Delhi-based historian of modern political history, S. Irfan Habib in a tweet said, “Shocking to know that Savitri Bai Phule university in Pune suddenly decided not to host the 79th Indian History Congress session. IHC session was supposed to be held by the end of this month. Law and order issues are cited as one major reasons by the university host.” SPPU authorities, however, categorically repudiated speculation about having sent the IHC any previous communication expressing reservations about hosting the congress owing to a potential ‘law and order situation’.last_img read more

Exports up 244 in Feb trade deficit narrows


first_imgNew Delhi: Marginal 2.44 per cent increase in exports as well as lower imports of gold and petroleum products in February significantly narrowed the country’s trade deficit to $9.6 billion, according to data released by the commerce ministry Friday. India’s merchandise exports rose to $26.67 billion in February from $26.03 per cent in the year-ago month mainly on account of higher shipments in sectors such as pharmaceutical, engineering and electronics. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to CustomsImports declined by 5.4 per cent to $36.26 billion in the last month, narrowing the trade deficit to $9.6 billion. The gap between imports and exports was $12.3 billion in February 2018, and $14.73 billion in January 2019. As per the data, the decline in imports was mainly on account of sharp decline in inward shipments of gold and petroleum products. While the import of gold fell by about 11 per cent to $2.58 billion in February as against $2.89 billion in the corresponding month last fiscal, inward shipments of petroleum products were down by nearly 8 per cent to $9.37 billion. Also Read – Coking coal shipments rise 15 pc to 29 MT at 12 state-run ports in Apr-SepDuring the April-February period of the current fiscal year, exports grew 8.85 per cent to $298.47 billion, while imports rose by 9.75 per cent to $464 billion. The trade deficit has widened to $165.52 billion during the 11 months of the current fiscal from $148.55 billion compared to the year-ago period, the data said. Non-petroleum and non-gems and jewellery exports in February 2019 stood at $19.87 billion, as compared to $18.90 billion in year-ago month. Non-petroleum and non-gems and jewellery exports in April-February 2018-19 were $217.43 billion, as against $201.95 billion in the comparative period last fiscal. Oil imports in April-February 2018-19 were $128.72 billion, which was 31.98 per cent higher over the same period last fiscal. The global Brent price (USD/bbl) decreased by 1.97 per cent in February 2019 compared to the same month previous year. Commenting on the trade data, President of exporters’ body FIEO Ganesh Kumar Gupta said that exporters have managed to do well despite increasing protectionism, tough global conditions and constraints on the domestic front. He said economies across Asia specially China and South East Asian nations have been showing signs of sluggishness with contraction in manufacturing due to slowdown in the global trade and fragile world economy. Gupta said 18 out of 30 major product groups were in positive territory, with most of them with marginal growth during the month. “However, with this trend, we will be able to achieve merchandise exports of about $330 billion, the highest ever exports for a fiscal,” he added. Meanwhile, the RBI said services exports in January 2019 were $17.75 billion, registering a negative growth of 1.02 per cent over December 2018. The imports stood at $11.03 billion, down 3.07 per cent over December 2018. Taking merchandise and services together, overall trade deficit for April-February 2018-19 is estimated at $93.32 billion as compared to $82.46 billion in year-ago period.last_img read more

The Nationals Yankees Dodgers And Cubs Cant Possibly Be This Mediocre …


The 2018 MLB season may not even be a month old, but it’s never too early to start overanalyzing how teams have looked so far. That’s especially true this season, when many of the clubs slated to be favorites going into the year have stumbled a bit coming out of the gate. Most of these teams will probably be fine in the end — seriously, it is still very early to know anything about how the season will play out — but just the same, it’s worth checking on which aspects of their struggles should disappear in due time and which might be cause for real anxiety.Washington Nationals (10-12)What’s gone wrong: For a team supposedly built around pitching, Washington currently ranks fifth-to-last in the National League in adjusted ERA — though it hasn’t been the fault of the Max Scherzer-led starting rotation. No, the blame rests with a bullpen that collectively boasts a 5.78 ERA and has performed even worse in clutch situations. (Witness the Nats’ epic meltdown against the Mets last Wednesday.) Some bad early-season defense isn’t helping either, and despite Bryce Harper’s raw feats of power, the offense isn’t hitting enough to make up for the 4.6 runs Washington is allowing per game.Cause for concern? Maybe. The Nats’ bullpen and defense were nothing special last season, either — they ranked 19th and 17th, respectively, in wins above replacement.1Averaging together the versions of WAR found at Baseball-Reference and FanGraphs. Closer Sean Doolittle has been fine so far, however, and setup men Ryan Madson and Brandon Kintzler are not as bad as they’ve looked in the early going. This lineup should get on track, too, when Daniel Murphy and Adam Eaton return from injury — or when Michael Taylor and Ryan Zimmerman break out of their April slumps. (We’ve seen Zimmerman hit poorly before, but he rebounded last season and has been hitting the ball hard in 2018, despite his bad results so far.)New York Yankees (11-9)What’s gone wrong: For all their immense hype going into the season, the Yankees have been pretty “meh” starting out, scoring only 13 more runs than they’ve allowed (113 vs. 100). Prized new left fielder Giancarlo Stanton is striking out constantly, particularly in front of the home fans at Yankee Stadium, while the team’s pitching has been average at best. They’re wasting a great start to the season by shortstop Didi Gregorius; he’s looked like an MVP over the past three weeks, but the Yankees barely have a .500 record to show for it.Cause for concern? Probably not. Although Stanton is pressing at the plate like some batters have been known to do in the pressure-packed New York media market, swinging at more pitches overall and whiffing on fastballs over the plate especially, he’s simply too good a hitter to not adjust eventually. (The ball he smoked at home on Friday might be a sign of things to come.) Likewise, scuffling starters Masahiro Tanaka and Sonny Gray should be better than the 7.22 ERA they’ve combined for so far, and a bullpen that ranked second in MLB in WAR last year is due for an improvement. Regression to the mean can work both ways, of course — Gregorius probably hasn’t fully made the leap to MVP level, for instance — but the Yankees should also benefit from better luck going forward: According to BaseRuns, which smooths out differences in the timing of offensive and defensive events, New York has been baseball’s fifth-best team so far, despite its record.Los Angeles Dodgers (10-10)What’s gone wrong: For one thing, Los Angeles’s offense is down this year, dropping from second in the NL last year to sixth in 2018, according to adjusted on-base plus slugging percentage. The Dodgers miss the production of third baseman Justin Turner, who fractured his wrist in spring training and has missed the entire season, and many of their other top hitters (Chris Taylor, Corey Seager, Yasiel Puig, the now-injured Logan Forsythe, etc.) are off to subpar starts. But an even bigger problem has been L.A.’s bullpen, which ranks 22nd in WAR a year after finishing fifth. Closer Kenley Jansen, usually the best reliever on the planet, sports a 6.23 ERA, and he’s already blown twice as many saves this year as he did all of last season.2Granted, Jansen only blew one save last season. But it was in 42 chances! This year, he’s blown two in five tries.Cause for concern? Sort of. The Dodgers’ hitting issues should sort themselves out eventually — they’re still projected by FanGraphs to score the fourth-most runs per game in the NL over the entire season, and they ought to be even better than that once Turner comes back in May. The bullpen question may be longer-lasting, however, given Jansen’s struggles. Although he brushed off early concerns about his performance (and he recorded a pair of scoreless innings over the weekend), there were questions about Jansen’s velocity in the spring, which have only amplified a month into the season. According to BrooksBaseball.com, Jansen’s sinker is averaging only 93.6 mph this April, compared with 95.7 mph last April and 94.9 two Aprils ago. We know that unexplained changes in velocity may indicate the kind of injury or mechanical problem that leads to cold streaks or prolonged absences, and we also know how important Jansen was to the Dodgers’ bullpen last year (he accounted for 48 percent of their relief WAR by himself). If Jansen suffers a down season, it would seriously affect L.A.’s chances of returning to the World Series.Chicago Cubs (10-9)What’s gone wrong: The Cubs are scoring plenty and they’ve already enjoyed a few memorable moments in 2018 so far, including this ridiculous eighth-inning comeback against the Braves the Saturday before last. But their starting pitching and defense — i.e., the twin cornerstones of Chicago’s 2016 World Series run — have been surprisingly mediocre thus far. Although veteran lefty Jon Lester has basically been his usual solid self, none of the other rotation members have lived up to their previous track records, from club mainstay Kyle Hendricks to newcomers Yu Darvish and Tyler Chatwood and second-year Cub Jose Quintana. And if Cub pitchers used to generate easily fieldable balls in play, that’s no longer the case: The team is below average in defensive efficiency and ordinary in various other fielding metrics. (When even Jason Heyward is showing up as a negative in the field, your defense has problems.)Cause for concern? Defensively, not really. Heyward may have lost a step in the field — which is worth keeping an eye on — but Chicago started slow on defense last season, too. They eventually managed to finish near the top of the advanced-metric leaderboards when all was said and done. But there might be real cause for concern in the subpar performance of the Cubs’ rotation, even after taking defense out of the equation. Chicago’s starters rank seventh-worst in fielding-independent pitching so far this season, continuing a three-year slide from fourth-best in 2016 to 10th-best last year, and now 24th-best in 2018. The optimist’s case is that this group is too talented to keep pitching so poorly — and walking so many batters, specifically — but the Cubs will have a hard time fending off the Cardinals and Brewers in the NL Central (much less reclaiming their superteam status) if they don’t start getting a lot more out of their rotation soon. read more
