Other Sports Country knows what is right and wrong: Manu Bhaker’s father on the ‘Rs 2 crore controversy’

first_imgNew Delhi: Manu Bhaker, India’s 16-year-old teen shooting sensation, was involved in a war of words with Haryana Sports Minister Anil Vij over a promise of giving her a cash reward of Rs 2 crore for winning the 2018 Youth Olympics which was held in Buenos Aires. However, in an exclusive chat with News Nation, Manu’s father, Ram Kishan Bhaker, who works as a chief engineer in the Merchant Navy, offered some clarification in the ongoing controversy. “I had a chat with Anil Vij. He said the notification came afterwards and you don’t have to worry about that. This is a previous policy. The new notification is for future events,” he said.When asked as to whether this was another case of bureaucracy hampering a sportsperson’s growth and motivation, Ram Kishan smiled and said, “The country knows what is right and what is wrong.” The controversy involving Manu and the Haryana Sports Minister took place on Friday when Vij, on his Twitter handle, had tweeted on October 10 that the 16-year-old was promised a cash price of Rs 2 crore for winning the Youth Olympic gold medal in Argentina. After waiting a couple of months, Manu, who had apparently not got the money, lashed out at the government in her tweets on Friday by stating someone in the Haryana government has been playing games over the money promised to Youth Olympic winners.Read More | Every event, every medal memorable: Manu BhakerTo compound matters further, Manu retweeted Yogeshwar Dutt’s old tweet on a recent circular issued by the Haryana government in which it stated that one-third of the income earned by Haryana athletes from professional sports or commercial endorsements will be deposited to the Haryana State Sports Council. In the tweet, Yogeshwar had criticised Ashok Khemka, the principal secretary to the Government of Haryana. Immediately after that, Manu replied to Vij’s tweet which said, “Sir, please confirm if this is correct… or a jumla”. This resulted in a heated exchange between the Haryana government and the teenager. For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. War of words intensifiesThe Haryana Sports Ministry jumped into action by stating that she should have first spoken to the sports department rather than airing her issue in public domain. “The language she used in her tweet is aimed at tarnishing the image of the state and it is in bad taste. The government has given all pending prize money to sportsmen in August 2018…for those who are left out a plan is under way and they too will be given the prize money,” Vij said. The Sports Minister sought an apology from Bhaker, saying as per the policy of the government, the prize money of this year’s award winner is given the next year.Read More | Asian Games and CWG glory high points for Indian sports in 2018Even Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar criticised the decision of Manu to air her grievances on Twitter.

Classical radio station experiments with new media

first_imgRarely do Tchaikovsky and Twitter go together.But KUSC 91.5 FM — USC’s classical radio station and the country’s most listened to public radio station — is hoping to change that by working with the Integrated Media Systems Center to combine classical music with new media. On air · Alan Chapman, a host for KUSC, sits behind the control booth at the LA studio. KUSC is the most listened to public radio station. – Geo Tu | Daily TrojanKUSC and IMSC, a research facility focused on new media based in the Viterbi School of Engineering, will be letting students shape the future of music with a venture called the Music X Project.“The X means different things to different people; it’s a funny title,” said James Baker, director of IMSC. “I’m a mathematician, so to me X means ‘unknown.’ To Robert Cutietta, who’s dean of the School of Music, it means ‘Generation X.’”Through the Music X project, students will be able to submit proposals for multimedia projects that bring classical music to the digital age, and the best ideas from these proposals will be developed.“All music is becoming more accessible because of new media,” said Brenda Barnes, president of KUSC. “What we wanted to do with IMSC is to see how they might help us translate what we do more effectively into the new media world.”Barnes approached Baker over the summer wanting to find ways to move KUSC into the new media realm.“We need to be online because there are things we can do online that we can’t do on the radio,” Barnes said. “On the radio, all we can offer is one programming stream. Online we can offer multiple classical music channels — we could have a channel that’s all Mozart, that’s all opera, a study mix for people who want to listen to classical music while they’re studying.”Baker said he predicts the convergence of radio and Internet, and he was excited to be involved with KUSC’s endeavor.“This was one of the most interesting projects that had come my way,” he said. “There’s going to be a major change in the system coming in the future. We’re going to have an opportunity to influence that … We have a technical approach to go about it, at least to get started, and there’s no clear answer to where we are or where we should be going — and this is what really intrigued me.”The program Barnes and Baker decided on was the Music X Project, which will let students drive KUSC’s emergence into new media.“Where did we get the big software we use today on our personal computers?” Baker said. “We got that from a kid who was a freshman in college — Bill Gates. [New technology] comes by young people who get some really out-of-the-box ideas.”In early October, students will be able to submit essays on their ideas for the future of music and technology. The best essays will receive a cash prize and the best ideas will receive a stipend; Baker expects to eventually develop six stipend-based projects.For Barnes, the Music X project is about putting KUSC at the forefront of the radio and new media marriage movement, and not about saving classical music.“Classical music has withstood the test of time,” Barnes said. “It’s been around for hundreds of years and yet it’s still popular and still relevant for people. I think that classical music and the arts remind us of the wonderful things human beings are capable of … We need to be online because there are things we can do online that we can’t do on the radio.”Thornton Dean Robert Cutietta, agreed that classical music does not need saving. He noted, however, that integrating new media will bring classical music to new generations.“The distribution and recording of music have changed so much in the last 10 years, it’s going to be a critical part of how we go forward as musicians, and how we reach our audiences,” Cutietta said.Baker considers holding on to culture a critical aspect of new technology, which makes classical music, the hub of musical culture, a necessary base.“If we lose our aspirations of looking at great art, whether it’s music, film, visual arts or architecture, I think we’ve lost an important part of what it means to be human,” Cutietta said.last_img read more
