Winston-Salem Open on Friday night The Spanish top seed was far too good for German Jan-Lennard Struff winning 6-2 6-4 on an unseasonably mild evening on the North Carolina hardcourt He will meet Damir Dzumhur in the final on Saturday after the weary Bosnian recovered from a poor start to roar into his first career final with a 1-6 7-5 6-3 win over Briton Kyle Edmund Bautista Agut showed his

between his legs before running down a drop shot and poking a winner down the line World number 15 Bautista Agut lost last year’s final to fellow Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta World number 67 Dzumhur hardly had an ideal preparation for the event He did not arrive in Winston-Salem until the early hours of Monday morning after reaching a final of a Challenger Tour event in the Dominican Republic on Saturday He was back on court later on Monday and five days later will play in the final two days before the start of the US Open But Dzumhur looked headed for an early getaway to New York after barely troubling Edmund in a one-sided first set “I was a little bit tired” Dzumhur said “In second set I tried to hold my serve and I broke him in a game when he was 40-15 up and in that moment

India to the UN in Geneva on Thursday celebrated the 125th birth anniversary of Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar at a special event organised at the headquarters of World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) Over 100 people attended the event including senior academics students international civil servants representatives of the diplomatic community and members of the Indian diaspora Ambedkar Jayanti was celebrated at the UN AFP India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Office in Geneva Ajit Kumar in his opening remarks said “Today Ambedkar is revered nationally and figures in the national pantheon as one of the makers of modern India along with Gandhi Nehru and Tagore” “Fittingly although it’s a matter of coincidence one can see the trace of Babasaheb’s radiant vision in the Sustainable Development Goals that are set to be formally adopted by the UN General Assembly to eliminate poverty hunger and socio-economic inequality by 2030” he added Jaya Krishnakumar professor at the University of Geneva delivered the keynote address on the life and works of Ambedkar “He is famously known as one of the founding fathers of the Indian Constitution so WIPO is extremely proud to host this event of such an illustrious son of India and I personally as an Indian feel extremely proud on this occasion to be part of this very significant event organized by the permanent mission of India” said Naresh Prasad Assistant Director-General of WIPO It is for the first time that Ambedkar Jayanti has been celebrated outside India with series of events organised by Indian missions and posts outside of the country Ambedkar’s contributions to India have been remarkable albeit under-appreciated particularly his contributions to the economy "This was in his (Ambedkar’s) paper in 1918 that he said that the only solution for India’s smallholdings is to move people to non-agriculture and not land reform This is the model that ultimately gets adopted in the first Five Year Plan — something that we did for about two Plans and then we somewhat changed That was one great contribution” said Jayasankar Krishnamurty eminent economist and former senior official of the International Labour Organization “Another great contribution was that he introduced the idea of tripartism He took it from the ILO in 1942 when he was Labour member of the Viceroy’s Executive Council He also was the father of social insurance” Krishnamurty said Ambedkar wrote three PhDs one of which sunk in the ocean when the ship carrying his luggage was shot down by the Germans Both the PhDs he earned were in Economics “This is something people don’t know” Krishnamurty said Written by C Raja Mohan | Published: January 16 2015 12:47 am The exit of Rajapaksa the architect of Sri Lanka’s tilt towards China is a diplomatic problem in the near term for Beijing Related News It is premature to conclude that the defeat of incumbent Mahinda Rajapaksa in the Sri Lankan presidential election last week is a strategic setback for Beijing which has invested so much in building a special relationship with the island republic But the exit of Rajapaksa the architect of Sri Lanka’s tilt towards China is a diplomatic problem in the near term for Beijing How China adapts to the new circumstances in Lanka which has become so central to China’s maritime strategy in the Indian Ocean is a story worth following China’s current quandary in Sri Lanka does bring into sharp relief the problem that major powers face in dealing with significant internal political change in countries of interest Big powers can get into trouble by identifying themselves too closely with the regime in power Some of the gains made by investing in an unpopular regime are likely to be lost when its opponents wrest control of the government There are both risks and rewards then in being drawn into the domestic politics of other countries A little over three years ago when Myanmar launched political reforms at home President Thein Sein suspended work on a controversial Chinese project to build a dam on the Irrawaddy river The Myanmar military which welcomed China’s tight embrace during a quarter century of Western sanctions found the relationship with Beijing too suffocating and has significantly diversified the country’s international relations in the last few years Naypyidaw however is acutely conscious of the need to maintain a reasonable relationship with China its giant neighbour to the north Beijing in turn has ordered its companies working in Myanmar to show greater sensitivities to public concerns and reach out to the non-governmental organisations in the country China is not the only one that faces these problems Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s surprising political mandate in last year’s general elections saw Washington scrambling to engage a political leader it had denied a visa for nearly a decade Modi for his part has looked beyond the personal to boost India’s relationship with America Put simply diplomatic wrinkles of the sort that China faces in Sri Lanka today can indeed be ironed out PRAGMATIC BEIJING It has been widely assumed that China had overcome the problem of dealing with regime change in other countries There was a time when Mao’s China took strong political positions in favour of or against governments in other countries as it viewed international relations through the ideological prism Deng Xiaoping in contrast affirmed the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other countries Put simply this meant Beijing would deal with whoever is in power Discarding communist internationalism and ending support for revolutions abroad helped Beijing rapidly expand its influence in world politics over the last four decades But as China’s worldwide interests grow and Beijing pursues them vigorously the formula of non-intervention has come under stress While aggressive economic engagement quickly delivers spectacular infrastructure projects it also generates deep discontent among multiple constituencies ranging from NGOs to local trade unions and capitalists When Beijing injects a military dimension to the bilateral ties it stirs the domestic political opponents of the regime and wakes up other powers with a strategic interest in the nation When it closely aligned with the ruling regime as Beijing did with Rajapaksa in Lanka China’s claims of non-intervention were of no political consequence Unsurprisingly the leaders of the new government had promised before the election that they would review some of the Chinese projects that Rajapaksa had approved and restore Sri Lanka’s traditional policy of maintaining balanced relations with all the major powers including India China and the West INDIAN CHALLENGE It is widely presumed that India much like China upholds the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other countries New Delhi’s observance of this principle in the subcontinent has always had exceptions This was inevitable given the deep interconnections between the domestic politics of India and those of its neighbours Both push and pull factors made Delhi look like a meddlesome big brother in the past After the military intervention in Sri Lanka during 1987-90 Delhi has certainly learnt some political lessons It now recognises the importance of engaging all political forces encouraging them to resolve their domestic quarrels and resisting the temptation to impose its will on them Delhi however has failed to build on the natural economic geography that binds India and its neighbours Its reluctance to open its markets and improve trade facilitation on the borders is matched by its inability to implement projects in the neighbourhood and promote Indian investments If Beijing has overplayed its economic hand in Sri Lanka Delhi’s commercial strategy has been underwhelming Without a more purposeful regional economic policy Delhi is in no position to contest China’s growing influence in the subcontinent or take advantage of its temporary diplomatic setbacks The writer is a distinguished fellow at the Observer Research Foundation and a
