M Thomas Isaac | Updated: October 17 2014 10:20 am Once Alappuzha was notorious as one of the most unclean towns in Kerala Related News Alappuzha is a sleepy old town situated between the great Vembanad lake and the sea nearly 60 kilometres south of Kochi The port town established by the king of Travancore in the late 18th century had grown along the two trunk canals connecting the port to the great lake The web of canals in the city and its surroundings earned Alappuzha the name “Venice of the East” It became the major port and industrial town in southern Kerala But by the 1970s it began to resemble a ghost town as its port was eclipsed by Kochi’s and the coir industry moved out This decline continued till the late 1990s when backwater tourism gave it a new lease of life But by then the canals had got silted and become garbage pits The town also began to rapidly lose its architectural heritage a process that has been marvellously documented by Laurie Baker through his inimitable sketches and comments in Alleppey — Venice of the East (1991) The insanitary conditions made the town an abode of ill health In the state with the longest life expectancy and lowest infant mortality we had a paradox of high morbidity dominated by environment-related traditional diseases Alappuzha became notorious as one of the most unclean towns in Kerala seriously jeopardising its future as a tourism centre Things came to a head in 2001 when the transport of solid waste from the town to its central processing plant in the neighbouring panchayat was disrupted Though called a processing plant it was really a dumping yard and an environmental hazard The local population rightfully protested and blocked the movement of waste The streets of the town were littered with garbage Finally an agreement was brokered with the protestors reducing waste movement from 50 tonnes a day to five tonnes The municipality pursued an aggressive policy of landfilling within the town an evidently unsustainable policy With centralised processing ruled out at least for the time being what was to be done Scavenger’s Son (1947) the first novel of the Jnanpith award winner Thakazhi Sivasankara Pillai an illustrious son of Alappuzha held a clue The novel narrating the story of three generations of scavengers of the town created such a social stir that it put an end to the century-old institution of manual scavenging in Alappuzha The human excreta dumping yard in Sarvodayapuram was used for other solid waste from the town The human excreta depot shifted to latrines within the town itself Almost all the houses in the town now have latrines that are either inbuilt or in the compound This raised a simple question If human excreta could be processed in our own houses why not the little bit of kitchen waste The town folk usually lumped together all sorts of waste into a plastic kit and demanded that the municipal corporation collect and process the garbage It was the duty of the present generation of sanitation workers in the municipality to segregate the waste A new edition of Scavenger’s Son was in order \ That was how a people’s campaign for processing waste at the source was born A change in mindset was required Normally all government programmes consider sanitation to be merely an issue of technological choice This was our major point of departure Our pilot project for 12 wards was funded by the sanitation mission of the government of Kerala But then it was converted into a popular campaign for better sanitation The approach was simple Every household was to instal a biogas plant or pipe compost to process its organic waste Three wards have already achieved this If for some reason a household was not able to process its waste it should not be littering the street Anybody caught doing so would be fined The organic waste was to be brought to the collection points set up by the municipal corporation which would compost it in aerobic compost bins installed in various parts of the city The aerobic composting system in Alappuzha is an innovation by the Kerala Agricultural University where layers of organic waste and dry leaves are laid in a bin with sufficient ventilation Inoculum cultured from cow dung is sprayed on dry leaves before a layer of organic waste is deposited over it Each bin can process two tonnes of waste and in three months high quality compost is ready Instead of being garbage collectors and segregators municipal workers now manage community compost bins Initially wherever we attempted to put the compost bin there was stiff local opposition and the plans had to be shelved So we chose the worst garbage dumping areas in the town to set up our compost bins Nobody objected Nothing could be worse than the existing situation These sites were cleared and the sheds housing the bins decorated with plants and murals The artists of Kochi Biennale lent their support to the setting up of the largest community compost centre WATSAN Park All meetings of the sanitation campaign are normally held at this park Visitors and curious onlookers are amazed that there is no smell The place truly has been converted into a park with a vertical garden poly house and flower pots Thus we broke the backbone of the opposition to community compost bins There are two innovations worthy of mention in our biogas plant and pipe compost campaign Heavily subsidised programmes have generally failed in Kerala and other parts of the country There are two reasons for this One sufficient attention is not paid to user education The service provider instals the plant pockets the service charge and moves on Even if user meetings are held they are normally attended by men folk who do not handle the waste processing Because of faulty handling most plants break down after some time Second there is no local maintenance team that could respond quickly to plant breakdowns Sooner or later the biogas plants and pipe composts are discarded and can become another hazard Our campaign involves intense targeted awareness programmes and also a maintenance team of two or three trained women in every ward Commercial establishments are to segregate their waste and either process the organic refuse themselves or enter into a contract with a service provider to remove it Most of the waste is further segregated as feed for fish chicken or pigs The rest is composted Just through systematic segregation most of the organic waste can be transformed into inputs for agriculture The plastic waste is periodically collected and given to contractors for recycling We intend to collect the e-waste and store it till the government establishes a centralised processing plant The resident associations and the neighbourhood women’s groups of Kudumbashree are the main organisational support for the campaign There is also a band of committed local resource persons many of whom are experts with technical competency Schoolchildren organised in WATSAN clubs are the main sanitation messengers to households Every second Saturday student leaders meet to chalk out certain simple activities that can be undertaken Songs street plays exhibitions marches and so on are effectively utilised for environment creation Currently efforts are being made to scale up the Alappuzha experience to the rest of Kerala This is possible because Kerala has social advantages like total literacy better healthcare effective land reform and decent housing for almost everyone Besides because of better infrastructural conditions in the countryside urbanisation does not lead to slum creation This may not be the situation in most parts of our country Nevertheless there are significant lessons to be learned from Alappuzha We cannot claim that we have achieved total sanitation in Alappuzha But the difference between the situation two years back and the present is too marked for anybody to miss

with ICC’s decision “It’s ridiculous” Smith told ESPNcricinfo “No-one wrote about it no-one spoke about it It was only because it was on the stump mic that it’s become a thing” Rabada was handed a one match suspension after swearing at England batsman Stokes during the first innings after dismissing the England batsman He was suspended after he earned a demerit point for telling Stokes to “f***

up by the stump mics he wouldn’t have been done” Smith said on Test Match Special Rabada had earlier shoved on on Sri Lanka’s Niroshan Dickwella in an ODI in January which gave him three demerit

Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Mahmood Farooqui | Published: June 8 2015 12:27 am Mujeeb Rizvi (1934-2015) Related News The passing away of Professor Mujeeb Rizvi brings alive an old cliché that it is the passing of an era His personal and intellectual biography represents the journey of a nation from its inception to its somewhat fraught maturity Born and educated at Allahabad the crucible of nationalist politics in the pre-independence era he went on to study at the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) before founding the Hindi department at Jamia Millia Islamia where he remained the presiding head for nearly 30 years His subject of study was medieval ‘Hindi’ poetry a field dominated by pundits literally and metaphorically His disputations with punditry of all sorts Hindu-Muslim Urdu-Hindi reflect an ethos and an era that seems quite incredible from the vantage point of our more bigoted times Born in the Chail region of Allahabad which was famous for Syeds as well as police officers he came to study at Allahabad in the 1940s when independence and partition were around the corner After finishing high school and intermediate there he joined the famous university of the town a few years after independence He was lucky enough to witness a university at the peak of its glory where the modern discipline of Indian history was being formed by pioneers such as Tarachand Noorul Hasan and Satish Chandra It was while at university that he came under the influence and mentorship of the famous Gandhian Pandit Sunderlal He spent many years as his political and spiritual disciple Rizvi joined Sunderlal’s peace mission to Telangana soon after the communist uprising of 1948 and a mission to China Besides being a politician Sunderlal was also a scholar His two-volume tome Bharat Mein Angrezi Raj a blistering attack on British rule in India had been banned by colonial authorities He also wrote a succint polemic called How India Lost Her Freedom The scholarship of these books is second to no historian of the period but in addition they are informed by a moral indignation which parallels other anti-colonial polemicists like Frantz Fanon and CLR James Like Mahatma Gandhi and Sunderlal all his life Rizvi struggled against the burden of ‘angreziyat without the angrez’ which was to become the fate of independent India Sunderlal was against both Persianised Urdu and Sanskritised Hindi and argued in favor of a simpler Hindustani a la Gandhi but sadly Hindustani lost out to Hindi by one vote in the Constituent Assembly Soon after Rizvi had an encounter with Purshottam Das Tandon the right-wing Congress leader of UP who taunted him as to why Muslims do not study Hindi Smarting at the taunt and desirous of bringing his political and personal life closer Rizvi then went on to study Hindi at the AMU At that time the university was reeling under the impact of Partition Widely seen as the crucible for Pakistan the stigma against the university was strong It had lost most of its teaching staff as well as a majority of its students after 1947 The Muslim students who remained were strongly pro Muslim League In tow with the student wing of the Communist party of which he was never a formal member Rizvi and his friends fought bitter ideological wars academically and politically with right-wing elements of both communities Afterwards he joined Jamia in Delhi Jamia Millia Islamia was a highly important experiment in nationalist education Founded in 1920 at the peak of the Khilafat-Non Cooperation Movement Jamia set itself up against the crony and separatist politics of Aligarh Inspired by Gandhi and following his ideas on Basic Education Jamia already had a sterling record as a secular and nationalist education centre by the time Rizvi joined It demanded of its teachers more than educational instruction It asked them to be role models of service for the students as well as the community around Jamia’s famous adult education program with outreach extending to several villages in that corner of South Delhi remains distinguished in the country Teachers and students ate from the same mess lived simply and practised ideas of education that extended beyond class room teaching Its famous vice chancellors Zakir Husain and Sheikh Mujeeb to name a few and teachers articulated an academic emotional and theological space for the Nationalist Muslims across the country who badly needed this succor after the dark days of Partition For his PhD Rizvi chose the apt theme of Jayasi’s Padmavat a 16th century poetic epic in a genre called sufi premakhyans For nearly five centuries sufis of North India had created epic poetic works which while ostensibly replete with Hindu religious terminology and deeply influenced by Sanskrit erotic conventions depicted the internal spiritual journey of a sufi These poets extensively translated passages from the Quran and from Persian masters to create a language and a discourse without which the great Bhakti poets such as Tulsi or Kabir may not have existed Some of these works were even recited from mosques in medieval India Rizvi’s distinctive contributions to this field including the wider world of Bhakti poetry was to show their great debt to Persian in vocabulary and in choice of themes This is something that famous Indologists such as George Grierson as well as Hindi scholars mostly Brahmins who dominated this field of study had completely missed out leading to erroneous conclusions Rizvi was a dedicated teacher who preferred to spend time with his students rather than to produce research papers to advance his academic career The list of people who benefited from his discourses cuts through many fields Historians such as Shahid Amin Muzaffar Alam and Aditya Behl Hindi writers such as Asghar Wajahat and Abdul Bismillah are only a few names of the thousands who benefitted from his learning and affection Through the nearly 50 years he spent in and around Jamia he spent the longest fighting ‘the Mullahs’ One of his favorite statements was to wonder why “God only spoke in Arabic to the Mullahs” And he did this from within the largely Muslim dominated landscape of Jamia the university as well as the locality Yet Rizvi’s secularism was not hollow of religion He found his secularism from deep within the practice of religion in this country from figures such as the Gujarati saint Mahamati Prannath who wanted to teach Aurangzeb the Quran Since the time off Gandhi intellectuals in India have come in broadly two forms desi and vilayati English educated though they may all be The desi ones know that all wisdom does not come from the West Rizvi was a desiintellectual par excellence Of all scholars and activists I have seen perhaps thanks to his early training I found Rizvi occuping the most unique position He was a Gandhian as well as a leftist a secularist as well as profoundly versed in religion an agnostic who was truly spiritual and a sufi who put humour before seriousness A scholar who put praxis before pedantry a devotee without any sectarianism he embodied a true sense of karuna Not for him the humbug of seminars publications conferences and self promotion He sat in his place engaged with the world in it yet not of it He imparted affective not bookish knowledge He represented a generation of intellectuals secular Muslim nationalists who occupied the most precarious position in this nation then and now and perhaps because of it came to stand for the best and the most exemplary that modern India has to offer We have lost an irreplaceable scholar of medieval India But more than that we have lost a life and a man of modern India that we may soon not know how to mourn Baatein Hamari Yaad
