thrilled with Prakash Padukone Was it really Lin Dan who whisked away in a car after his loss And a Prince without ostentatious pomp … there was more to last week’s badminton World Championship than the action on court Shivani Naik answers these questions as she captures the sights and sounds from the badminton fandom at Glasgow THE KIDAMBI FAN CLUB If there was a distinct buzz about any Indian player it was Kidambi Srikanth Expat fans from East Asian countries have taken to calling him Kidambi and the day he lost to World No 1 Son Wan Ho the non-Chinese ones offer their commiserations: “Lin Dan and Chen Long would’ve been worried about him They’ll be happy today” they say accusingly adding that at the next Worlds in Nanjing China they’ll root for the Indian While Srikanth’s tying-in-knots strokes have earned him fans from distant Asian corners it’s his footwork that gets many rooting for him as the next man who’ll challenge Chinese dominance “The way he moves is amazing Tell him to gain strength but not at the cost of his footwork” says Chris Pang of Malaysia He’s even fascinated by Sai Praneeth whose footwork and fluid movement again he gushes about “We notice the legs We decide to like a player or not depending on how he moves his feet” he adds “Does Kidambi have a girl-friend” one fan sneaks a question A ‘No clue’ drops their opinion of you as a worthy journo “You have no paparazzi in your country” they accuse Guilty as charged SHE WAS NEVER GONE Sindhu ended up being India’s star at the World Championships and Glaswegians applauded her on Finals Day But they started out with rolling out massive posters of the established faces from many years Saina Nehwal found herself — poised to return serve — amongst an array of international names on the huge hoardings on Day 1 Her preparations had been quiet and two days before she began her campaign India physio C Kiran was stretching her after a hard workout on the main courts Kiran said before the Worlds that Nehwal remains a contender for 2020 and slowly but surely and a year after her bruised knee gave her immense pain the 27-year-old got going after promising to play ‘smart badminton’ She ended with a surprise bronze — though neither the city nor Kiran are particularly surprised “There’s 30-35 tournament matches that will be important next year with Asian and Commonwealth Games I’m under no pressure to win because there’s many more chances” Nehwal herself said as her relaxed mindset fetched her successive Worlds podium finishes NAME AND FAME The Japanese media is as meticulous in its preparation as Nozomi Okuhara was in winning her title A request is made to enunciate pronunciations of every Indian shuttler in Glasgow into a dictaphone so that their names are uttered perfectly at next month’s Japan Open and in the lead-up to Tokyo The big screen in Glasgow on Finals Day mis-spells Okuhara’s name as Nozami even while the Chinese are coaxed into answering in English with the Koreans making a real effort to start communicating with the rest of the world There’s much mangling of pronunciations and names before the Japanese hack spells out J W A L A and enquires about where she’s disappeared He is slightly disappointed she’s moved onto coaching I’m expected to pass on a message to her that she’s missed on the tour “Tell her she should’ve played more mixed doubles All guys were scared of her left-hand smash” We suspect she knows that THE FANTOM CHAMPS Tai Tzu Ying is missed at the World Championships — when she chose to play the World Universiade There’s consensus that she’d have given even Carolina Marin and Sindhu a run for their money And through all this mourning a dozen women in women’s singles try to prove that she’s not the only one to talk about Kirsty Gilmour and Cheung Ngan Yi of Hong Kong come close though Nozomi walks away with all the love and the big dough Neutrals are won over by her cerebral game and whizzing easy darts on court and she attempts to recall by-hearted sentences in English as well — the effort much like Rafa Nadal’s appreciated by all The phantom man in men’s singles who everyone is dying to find out more about is Kento Momota who’s returning to the international circuit later this year after the Japanese enforced a strict ban on him when he was found gambling in a casino “If he was here Lin Dan would’ve not won” fans say Super Dan whose played at a loopy dull pace all week to make it to his 7th finals doesn’t win after all He leaves his fans searching for him exiting in a super car with tinted glass No one quite knows for sure it’s him but his fans presume it is and wave to the departing vehicle It’s the first final he’s lost since 2005 — to Taufik Hidayat something that most have

Channel to cheer for big Dane Viktor Axelsen He’s expected to bother Lin Dan with slow courts as well as his strong-shouldered smash giving him the edge It’s 20 years since Peter Rasmussen won the world title defeating an Asian in this very city And Viktor who grew up watching Super Dan win at the Denmark Open got himself a dream maiden title Retirement talk follows Dan and Lee Chong Wei routinely and it even struck Lilyana Natsir — the Indonesian doubles great Ironically she gets asked every time she wins a doubles title if it’s her last No one’s going away anywhere yet Viktor’s just gotten started — and his fans promise to traverse many lands following his exploits FROM OLD to OLDEST Photographer Ross 80 still recalls the joy of watching the graceful Prakash Padukone Shivani Naik Louis Ross is in his 80s and part amused part mortified that people nowadays take pictures of themselves and don’t look at “the prettier cities and scenery and badminton around” Selfies — he just doesn’t understand One of the earliest photographers to start clicking badminton in England the Southampton grand-daddy of lensmen started taking pictures so he could teach his badminton students how the greats played their shots “I’d take 80 frames of a single rally and teach my students” says the former club level coach of 60s–turned–lensman when lighting wasn’t the best and developing film was an almighty task Indonesian great Rudi Hortano was a friend and visited his class to demonstrate his skills as seen in the pictures He recalls Prakash Padukone winning the All England as a “completely composed sportsman and a joy to watch” By the time Gopichand came along he’d retired but recalls being gladdened by the fact that someone with elegant strokeplay and not “crash-bang” had won the All England FANS UP TO SPEED Chinese fans are milling away boasting about how they’ve figured where Chen Long plans to have dinner one evening and how the crowd-friendly Olympic champion has promised to have dinner with them Badminton in Asia comes with its superstitions and a Japanese expat believes fans ruined Long’s campaign by chasing him for autographs “We believe no players should be made to pose for pictures or their wrists bothered by asking for their autographs” Japanese Huaro (29) claims Indonesians have come with their sports songs while Scottish home fans play 500 Miles on loop — except they seem to know when to shout and when to not India’s BMKJ brigade just don’t strike the right chord in Sindhu’s final and are not particularly creative with a short-running “Blah blah blah blah Sindhu is a Superstar” The sweetest song though gets played in silence when Nozomi Okuhara and PV Sindhu play the greatest tune in badminton CELTIC WALK TO THE PARK Some members of the Indian team are taken on a tour to Celtic Park The radios are buzzing with the Glasgow club’s demolition of Kazakh side Astana and the World Championships week straddles the away leg which doesn’t end too bad at all Semifinals coincide with their league game against St Johnstone and there’s much talk about an annual race for every club’s mascots They’re speculating about who was inside the inflated frame of one Big Cup Willie after an hour-long discussion on a quiz question “Which Scotland manager said ‘If I walked on water my critics would say it was because I couldn’t swim” The line is repeated numerous times in the Glaswegian drawl with the poetic flourish of a Robert Burns Week rendition At the badminton Lin Dan ain’t that eloquent but he wonders why they keep telling him he’s 34 years old even if he’s making the finals SLAMS FOR SMASHES Badminton is keen on getting its circuit jazzed up and though everything’s going quite smooth if you ask us the sport wants to create tennis like Grand Slams So from next year four Super Series will be elevated to Slam status And India is rumoured to be in the third tier for its Siri Fort event It’s not a particularly adored venue by badminton fans owing to its inaccessibility and inability of the capital to fill up the stadium The Emirates Arena was sold out for quarters semis and finals — which the organisers knew wouldn’t star a Scottish name There’s one other difference Prince Edward is in attendance for the finals and after a very brief wave and smile the patron of Scottish badminton settles to watch the sport amongst the other fans None of Delhi’s VVIP ugly red sofas for the dignitaries Players remain the focus through the week even as Okuhara is declared the queen of shuttle Sindhu adds another painful memory to the

NewsUpdated: February 25 2014 8:00 am As the principal source of India’s hydrocarbon imports the Gulf will remain critical for India’s economic well-being for the foreseeable future Related News The stage is set for a more vigorous engagement with the region Back-to-back visits to Delhi this week by the crown prince of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and the foreign minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif underline Delhi’s growing engagement with the Gulf region which has become vital for India’s economic political and security interests The UPA government has often talked about a “look west” policy Although Delhi is some distance from organising a coherent look west policy over the last decade the UPA government has set the stage for a more vigorous engagement with the Gulf Any suggestion of a look west policy compels a comparison with India’s much-celebrated Look East policy and presents us with a paradox India’s relationship with the Gulf is much denser than with Southeast Asia Yet the Gulf does not resonate as much as Southeast Asia in India’s foreign policy discourse India’s annual trade with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for example is expected to reach $100 billion by 2015 India’s trade with the six countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) — Bahrain Kuwait Oman Qatar Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates — is expected to cross $200 billion by then In pursuing an effective look west policy the next government will have to take into account a number of factors For one it must recognise that the GCC is a weaker regional institution than the ASEAN and makes far fewer diplomatic demands on its partner countries The membership of the GCC does not encompass two key regional states — Iraq and Iran Amid a deepening regional divide it is politically more volatile This means it is up to Delhi to take the initiative on intensifying the engagement with the region Second as the principal source of India’s hydrocarbon imports the Gulf will remain critical for India’s economic well-being for the foreseeable future While Delhi has talked the talk on energy security there is much the next government will have to do in translating it into more secure interdependence Third the region is also a source of livelihood for nearly seven million Indian expatriate workers and their families It is also a major source of currency remittances estimated at more than $30 billion a year Securing the welfare of this large pool of manpower in the Gulf must be central to any look west policy Fourth the next government in Delhi must find ways to attract the large amount of capital available in the Gulf for investment in India If FDI is going to be critical in strengthening India’s macroeconomic stability the Gulf remains one of the most underutilised sources Any improvement in India’s investment climate would automatically boost the engagement with the Gulf Fifth India must learn to overcome its Pakistan obsession while engaging with the region Most countries in the Gulf will continue to shower affection on Pakistan This in no way limits the region’s interest in a strong partnership with India The growing gap in the national weights of India and Pakistan has already encouraged the region to pursue separate policies towards the two countries In building deep linkages with the region over the coming years Delhi could look towards a potential moderating influence of the Gulf on Pakistan Sixth the next government in Delhi will have to consolidate strategic partnerships with key countries of the region The last decade has seen the first steps towards greater cooperation on law enforcement intelligence sharing and counter terrorism which offer huge potential to deepen security cooperation between India and the Gulf Seventh there is a growing desire in the region for defence cooperation with India Few in the GCC expect India to replace the traditional sources of external military support for the region Yet amid significant shifts in the global and regional balance of power the Gulf wants to diversify its military partnerships to include emerging powers like India Delhi has had a long-standing defence partnership with Oman and a more recent one with Qatar In the talks with King Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa of Bahrain in Delhi last week defence cooperation figured prominently India is expected to sign an agreement on military cooperation with Saudi Arabia this week The next government in Delhi will have an opportunity to end some of the UPA government’s dithering on defence diplomacy with the Gulf Eighth Delhi needs to demonstrate greater political warmth towards the region Over the decades Indian foreign policy has tended to treat the Gulf as some kind of a diplomatic ghetto of interest only to a few sections of Indian society Despite the physical proximity and huge stakes in the region high-level visits by Indian political leaders have been few and far between The time has come for India to invest significant political diplomatic and intellectual resources in understanding and engaging with the region Finally with India seemingly set for a regime change after the next elections a government led by the BJP’s Narendra Modi might have some extra work to do in the Gulf given some of the controversies surrounding him Any incoming BJP government could easily reclaim the foreign policy legacy of Atal Bihari Vajpayee who cleared much ground for the construction of special relationships in the Gulf successfully won the region’s neutrality during the Kargil war with Pakistan initiated a strategic dialogue with the GCC and explored a political opening with the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation that Delhi had long viewed with wariness Vajpayee had demonstrated that the BJP government was a pragmatic and productive partner to the Gulf nations If he becomes prime minister Modi’s reiteration of that message would reassure the Gulf of continuity in India’s foreign policy A special emphasis on the centrality of the Gulf for India in the BJP’s foreign policy platform would help the party build on the regional gains from the decade-long tenure of the UPA government if it comes to power The writer is a distinguished fellow at the Observer Research Foundation Delhi and a contributing editor for ‘The Indian Express’
