candidates of same party are finding it difficult to reach out to all the voters in limited days for electoral campaign Now they have started to divide the area among themselves to seek votes for all the candidates of their party As per the state government decision the elections would be conducted for four-ward electoral panel system in PMC as against the earlier two-ward electoral panel The new system has compelled the candidates to cover a larger area and seek vote from the double number of voters compared to previous polls The PMC elections are being held for 162 seats which have been divided into 41 electoral panels — 39 panels of four wards and two panels of three wards “The four-ward electoral panel system has made us sweat out more All the four candidates of the party in the panel started the election campaign jointly but have now decided to divide area among ourselves as it would be practical to cover it alone or jointly” said BJP candidate Haridas Charvad from Vadgaon Budhruk-Dhayari electoral panel The strategy is mostly followed by all party candidates across the city as in Erandwane former corporator and Congress candidate Shiva Mantri said “I have fought elections in the past and know the problems as well as practical limitations in election campaign I am using my experience in planning the campaign for all” Former deputy mayor and NCP candidate Bandu

“I was the deputy mayor while another of NCP candidate in the my electoral panel was mayor but despite our popularity it is difficult to reach out to such large number of voters within short time So

Delhi A thin small-framed man with a gigantic veena “riding on the body” sits on his knees and moves his hands over 24 wooden frets to put forth a winding melodic structure The piece moves in a number of directions while leaning on the resting notes — pancham and gandhar — on regular intervals He shuts his eyes sweat dripping down his face and neck and touches a combination of notes in his trademark beenkari style that surprisingly invokes hope Strange for a raga that is known to be meditative The musician merges everything together into a hypnotic drone and does that one thing which musicians strive to achieve their entire life — make the raga stand in front of you “This is the effect of pure music” says Asad Ali Khan as he puts down the veena in Renuka George’s documentary Asad Ali Khan – A Portrait which was screened at IGNCA on Friday It isn’t hard to see through his soul at this moment — where years of learning merge into minutes of Gaud Sarang George’s documentary is a fascinating peep into the world of Khan whose life was never documented until George decided to tell this legendary musician’s story “I always wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes In Khan sahab’s case his dedication to a difficult art form was moving” says George who was funded by Edward and Benjamin de Rothschild Foundation and the LODH Bank for this film A graduate from London School of Economics George grew up all over the world before spending almost 25 years in France — a country where dhrupad found a lot of attention She met Khan through Dagar Brothers a name synonymous with dhrupad in France Dhrupad is a genre that originated from the Vedas and is either sung or rendered on the rudra veena Mythologically known to have created by Shiva with its complex grammar and aesthetics playing the instrument is a form of worship The narrative of the film opens in Alwar where Khan goes back to his ancestral house and talks of his childhood and learning from his exacting father Sadiq Ali Khan a court musician The film journeys through his years full of learning of a difficult instrument and follows him to Delhi Khan never married and passed away in 2011 exactly a year after George shot the film Neither George nor does her voice appear in the documentary which is what has resulted in the flow of the narrative It is also a way through which George has drawn out a reclusive musician “It is his story I wanted to be as non-intrusive as possible I was looking for him to open up” says the 54-year-old George is now in talks to release the film as a DVD She also wants to work on other projects one of them being a film on TM Krishna but lacks the funds One of the most beautiful scenes from the film is a few minutes post a private concert by Khan in his house Ustad Fahimuddin Dagar vocalist LK Pandit and Khan are seen discussing the friendship their fathers and grandfathers shared and how they were lucky to be born in the times of such legends “Kya daal

plane that crashed Tuesday in France was at the safest part of flight Yet something went horribly wrong leading to the death of 150 passengers and crew The first clue about what could have happened will be the wreckage itself If the debris field is pretty compact the plane most likely hit the mountains intact If it is scattered the plane probably broke up midair "If you see a wing here and three miles later you see a fuselage one doesn’t have to be an expert to speculate that it didn’t happen on the ground — that something happened before it impacted" says Todd Curtis a former Boeing safety engineer who is now director of the Airsafecom Foundation Germanwings Flight 9525 from Barcelona Spain to Duesseldorf Germany was flown on an Airbus A320 a workhorse of modern aviation similar to the Boeing 737 There are over 3600 of them in operation worldwide according to Airbus which also makes nearly identical versions of the plane: The smaller A318 and A319 and the stretched A321 An additional 2500 of those jets are flying The first clue about what could have happened will be the wreckage itself If the debris field is pretty compact the plane most likely hit the mountains intact If it is scattered the plane probably broke up midair The A320 family has a good safety record with just 014 fatal accidents per million takeoffs according to a Boeing safety analysis This particular jet was delivered to Lufthansa — the parent company of Germanwings — in 1991 and had about 58300 flight hours over 46700 flights It is way too early to know for sure what happened but here are some possibilities RAPID DECOMPRESSION This jet averaged more than 53 flights a day over its 24 years That isn’t unusual for a plane making short trips around Europe but is on the higher end of what is normal Each takeoff and landing cycle and the pressurization and depressurization associated with it adds stress to the skin of the plane Aircraft that fly short frequent routes go through more of these cycles than planes flying long distances In 1988 a 19-year-old Aloha Airlines Boeing 737-200 that had made frequent short hops among the Hawaiian islands lost a large part of its roof Corrosion and metal fatigue were to blame Flight 9525 reportedly descended at 3000 feet per minute from its cruising altitude of 38000 twice the normal speed of a descent If there was some type of rapid decompression — whether from metal fatigue or a bomb — the pilots’ first move would be to get the plane down below 10000 feet where the air is breathable The masks that come down from the overhead bins provide about 10 minutes worth of oxygen So a descent rate of 3000 feet per minute would get the plane down to breathable air just in time Curtis says that initial rate of descent is consistent with what you would see in a decompression situation TECHNICAL ERROR Airbus jets have one of the most sophisticated cockpits However there have been issues in the past with some of the instruments there The 2009 crash of Air France Flight 447 into the Atlantic Ocean started because pilots were getting false air speed indications as the plane flew through a storm Ultimately pilot error led the plane into a stall but the pilots would have never made the mistake if they were getting proper data More recently a Lufthansa A321 — the slightly larger version of the A320 — dropped about 4000 feet in one minute after the autopilot unexpectedly lowered the jet’s nose Following the November incident the European Aviation Safety Agency issued a safety directive warning pilots about the possibility of an error with the angle of attack sensors on the plane Pulling up on the jet’s sidestick — a device similar to a yoke — would not pull the jet out of the dive The safety agency noted the only way to stop it was to turn off two of the three air data reference units in the cockpit These units process the flight speed up or down angle of the nose and the altitude TERRORISM There is no indication that this crash is tied to any criminal act but such actions can’t yet be ruled out PILOT ERROR The pilots might have somehow accidently put the plane into a dive or stall and not been able to recover from it Separately the pilots could have been so focused on getting the plane below 10000 feet that they didn’t realize how close they were to the mountains until it was too late AP Alexa Chung, I
