India were completely outplayed by Netherlands and beaten 3-1 in the Hockey World League semi-final group stage. Subsequent goals from?Neth andPruijser gave them a 3-0 lead in the first half Akashdeep was the lone goalscorer for India The first half was all about India trying to deal with the waves of Dutch attacks coming their way They couldn’t do much about as was evident from the 3-0 scoreline that was flashing on the screen by the end of the half India for their part were sloppy whenever they had possession Netherlands never gave them a moments rest and intercepted their passes regularly At the end of the first half Akashdeep Singh received the ball inside the D and took a shot on the turn It crashed into the chest of the Dutch keeper But he received the ball again only seconds later He was cramped for space but somehow chucked the ball in It was a moment of magic from Akashdeep and India went back to the dugout after the hooter blew seemingly back into the match But Netherlands almost cruelly kept India out in the second half They made lesser chances and hogged possession They took advantage of India’s general sloppiness and intercepted passes in those rare moments when India had the ball There were a few chances for India and those were always seen off by the Dutch defence The loss doesn’t really have dire consequences India are still through to the quarter-finals They were leading the group table before the match and now are second to Netherlands It will have a bearing on who they face in the quarters For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Tavleen Singh | Published: May 1 2016 12:24 am Congress president Sonia Gandhi (Source: PTI) Top News What an astonishing effect the crevelations have had on the Congress party Not only did Sonia Gandhi consider it necessary to speak to TV reporters almost for the first time ever but her closest aide Ahmed Patel gave the first interviews he has ever given He gave them in Hindi and in English to many channels This is someone who has been such a discreet backroom boy that most political reporters in Lutyens Delhi have no idea what his voice sounds like What intrigued me most was Sonia’s declaration that she ‘was not afraid’ Was this because she knows better than anyone that she has no reason to fear The AgustaWestland official who said that our investigative agencies were ‘morons’ was both right and wrong What he did not know is that they would not be ‘morons’ if they were allowed to seriously investigate the commercial activities of India’s political leaders If they were allowed to subject them to the tax raids businessmen and Bollywood stars routinely face we would learn more about corruption in high places than ever before Having had the dubious privilege of peeking into the homes and lives of many political leaders I can report that most have assets that are not commensurate with their humble salaries as public servants Many have no hesitation flaunting their wealth either because they know that no tax inspector is going to go after them When it comes to big defence deals like the one the Government of India signed with AgustaWestland it is common knowledge that there are always mega kickbacks involved The trick is not to get caught So when the bribe-givers in Italy were stupid enough to get caught the last government cleverly cancelled the deal but made only a cursory effort to investigate further Now that the Italian courts have found evidence of bribes being given the Modi government will be forced to investigate but we must hope it will not stop at the limited goal of trying to pin something on Teflon Sonia Remember that she survived Bofors unscathed despite the Quattrocchi connection If the Prime Minister is serious about fighting corruption then this defence scandal gives him a real chance to go deeper into the causes of the rot Of course we must find out who took bribes in the AgustaWestland deal and of course they must be punished but much more needs to be done if we really want ‘parivartan’ A vital first step has to begin by cleaning up the departments that deal with bribery and corruption In most cases these departments are so ridden with corruption that when an official gets exposed for having lockers full of cash and jewellery it barely makes more than a few paragraphs on the inside pages of newspapers Since Narendra Modi became Prime Minister there have been no major scandals at the top but bribery and corruption continue to thrive lower down the line and go all the way down to what we like to call ‘the grassroots’ It is because of this that we build bridges that fall down and roads that get washed away in every rainy season It is not going to be easy to change a system that is rotten to the core but if even a hint of change begins to show it will make a huge difference The other vital component in the fight against corruption is to find ways to make the criminal justice system work more efficiently Sadly the main reason why political leaders demand ‘an inquiry’ when they are caught doing something wrong is because they know that inquiries can go on forever and then if some court finds a case to answer trials can go on even longer So it is not just Sonia Gandhi who is ‘not afraid of anything’ it is a small army of public servants who know well that there is nothing to fear If a fresh inquiry is ordered into the AgustaWestland deal can we hope that it will be completed within months and not years If this happens it will not just make political leaders and high officials less corrupt in the future it will also give ordinary Indians renewed faith in the system As things stand the rot goes so deep that most Indians no longer believe that anything will ever change At the risk of once more being labelled a ‘Sonia-baiter’ may I remind you that the problem began with Bofors Prime ministers have come and gone since that most famous of Indian defence scandals and justice has remained elusive despite at least one of them having

bankrupts the economy So the Budget made a provision for her food security Billwhich when it becomes law will distribute cheap grain to more than 70 per cent of the population Judging by the scale of pilferage and corruption that other schemes of this kind has fosteredSonias new idea will not workbut it may delude some voters into voting for Lady Bountiful My problem with the sort of economic ideas that Sonias National Advisory Council has imposed is that they have been tried over and over again and failed every time It was in those socialist decades when Indira Gandhi ruled supreme and our economic policy was defined by the slogan Garibi hatao that massive welfare programmes were first born Andas I have pointed out before in this columnhad just the ICDS (Integrated Child Development Scheme) workedwe would not be today facing the sickening reality that 45 per cent of Indian children are officially malnourished It is in my opinion our most shaming problem and I have tried on my travels to find out why it exists and discovered that at the heart of the crisis lie massivecentralised welfare schemes that are inherently flawed My other problem with Sonia Gandhis largesse is that it hasever since MNREGA beganmade the glorification of poverty fashionable again So in rural Indiawhere the economic boom inspired even the poorest people to want real improvement in their lives and instilled in them an aspiration to one day being prosperousthey again want to be counted among the poor to benefit from government dole and cheap grain So we are back to being the nation of beggars that we became as a consequence of Nehruvian socialism If the hundreds of thousands of crore rupees poured into subsidies and poverty alleviation schemes had been used instead to build roadsschools and hospitalsit is my conviction that we would today have been on the verge of becoming a developed country What is the point of bemoaning thisnow that it is all over and there is not the smallest hope that anything will change before the next general election Even if the Finance Minister had been able to change courseit may not have made a difference Sonia Gandhis economic legacy is that she has taken a booming economy and ground it down to the socialist growth rates that were the hallmark of her mother-in-laws economic policies It is now only a matter of time before BangladeshMyanmarSri
