first_imgIt’s a regular sight – players off the pitch hugging their mates on it after a try is scored. But some feel it’s all getting out of hand. Read this debate from our March 2021 issue Face-off: Should we allow substitutes to celebrate in the in-goal area?STUART BARNESFormer England fly-half, analyst and journalistThe dead-ball area is part of the playing field. You wouldn’t know it to see replacements doing their constant warm-up drills in there. Not just when the possession is in the other 22 but with the game going on within a quick sprint of the try-line.Nobody wants a pulled hamstring but someone has to enforce the replacement problem. The field belongs to 30 players and the referee. Not 46. The merge of one and all occurs when a try is scored. As players slide in pursuit of a chip through, replacements are inches the other side of the field, urging them on.Clear view: ex-England centre Will Greenwood sides with Barnes on this issueIt was a while ago, in the Guinness Pro14. Don’t ask me the match or who was referee, but I think it was in Ireland. A player touched down, blades of grass from the dead-ball line. I was commentating. I was pretty sure the try had been scored, based on my feel for the game.But the try wasn’t awarded. There was no defining TV angle available because the substitutes had celebrated in-field, before the score. All of Sky’s angles amounted to a mob of subs hugging their man, the touchdown lost in a forest of thick legs. Whoever the referee was on that distant day, God bless him! This was the moment ‘exuberance’ literally crossed the line.The pressurising pack of replacements can be heedless of the game before their number is called. However, rugby union must remain a game of 30 players on the field, with 16 doing whatever it takes to be prepared – until their number comes up. The line must not be crossed.Interference: a scuffle at Kingsholm after a Sale waterboy stopped Gloucester collecting the ball (Getty)IAIN HAYGlasgow-based freelance writer and podcaster Encroaching? French subs join in the celebrations after a try against Wales last year (AFP/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img I view try-scoring pile-ons in the same manner that I view booing the kicker: I don’t much care for it, but I care even less for pearl-clutching and moaning about it.There are frequent complaints about a lack of characters in the game, because they’ve been media-trained to death and taught to say nothing controversial. Yet once the players show any emotion – or ‘character’ if you must – they get jumped on for being uncouth.They’ve just achieved the main aim of the game and their pals are right there. Of course they want to celebrate. It’s camaraderie, it’s passion.Pure joy: Quins subs pile in to celebrate a Mike Brown try from a few years ago at Twickenham (Getty)Are those complaining about it trying to tell us they haven’t high-fived or hugged their friends at the same time, or are they so stoic that they deem a quick handshake and a polite round of applause sufficient? With defences as staunch and solid as they are now, a try is something that should be celebrated.As a caveat to the above, should the celebrating team engulf an opponent who was trying to stop the scorer and engage in goading then that’s not really cool, but we see similar levels of goading at any number of smaller victories on the park. I’d put good money on those who feel so passionately about it as being nonplussed when it’s their team engaging in such frippery.Of all the things to get wound up about in the game, celebrating in this fashion should be so far down the list that it is an irrelevance. Should substitutes celebrate in-goal? We want to know what YOU think. Email your views to [email protected] debate first appeared in the March 2021 issue of Rugby World.last_img read more

first_imgFriday Aug 23, 2013 Through the Eyes of an All Black – with Nick Evans The All Blacks are the current World Champions so this year we’ve launched our new All Blacks channel, brought to you by AIG, and we’ll be focussing on them throughout the season, starting with the first in our series of features with Nick Evans. Evans, a star with Harlequins since 2008, played for the All Blacks 16 times and is still considered one of a best number tens to have played for New Zealand.We caught up with him this week to get his thoughts on the current performances and quality of the All Blacks, to hear what he thinks of the British & Irish Lion depth and a whole lot more.Rugbydump: What are your thoughts on the All Blacks crushing the Wallabies in the first Bledisloe Cup Test, and were you surprised it was so emphatic?I was surprised actually. It was 20 odd points and it probably could, and should have been more.The All Blacks got into their stride early on. The Wallabies spoke in the week about being physical and trying to match New Zealand physically, but that didn’t happen. The one thing when you’re playing the All Blacks is that you have to match them or beat them physically.Where New Zealand stung them is in the turnover ball. You could call it a non-structured attack from a turnover or a loose kick; it’s their ability to realign and find the space which makes them so dangerous. They scored two or three tries from turnover ball, so the Wallabies forced errors cost them. The All blacks were clinical and it has set the tone for the series.With Dan Carter out injured, how impressed were you with Aaron Cruden, and do you think he has now cemented his place as the next AB’s number ten after Carter retires?I was impressed, I did an interview before the game and someone asked me how I thought he would go, you have to remember Cruden has been around for a while, he has played in 20 odd tests now and he has taken his opportunities well. He has a had a few more opportunities than I did.Carter has been injured and is about to go on a sabbatical. Cruden has fitted in to the dynamic well. One thing with the All Blacks is that you don’t lose too much when you lose a player like Carter now. The guys around him are very experienced and the guys coming in to fill know what goes on. When the All Black forward pack is going forward, it can be a bit of an armchair ride, it is pretty easy to make decisions. It will be interesting to see what happens when they are in a close test, but he has proven himself in those tight games before.He has definitely cemented his place if Carter retires, the question is, will he be patient enough to wait around? Carter has been around for a bit longer and he has an eye on the next World Cup in England. He is still young, so he has time to hang around. That was my issue, I was 28, so I didn’t have the luxury to hang around for long enough. But yeah, I was really impressed and I hope he does well this weekend.Following the recent Wallabies vs Lions series, do you think that the current depth in talent up north will stand them in good stead for the 2017 Lions tour of New Zealand, and more than likely produce a very different result to 2005?There was a lot of talk about if this was a tough series for the Lions. There was also talk about the Lions being favourites due to the lack of depth in Australian rugby. I think the Wallabies proved a lot of their doubters wrong; they put up a good fight and took it to the decider. I guess the depth of the Lions squad showed in the last test. They were a big side, I played against them for the Barbarians.It’s going to be a big tour to new Zealand in 2017. I think that’s the big tour to go on and one you will really want to do well on. We all know what happened the last time.I think the last Lions team were a good side. Are they good enough to beat the Abs team in 2017? There is a lot of water to go under the bridge between then and now, I think there will be a lot of confidence if some of those core Lions players are still involved in four years. With my New Zealand hat on, I think they will clean sweep it, but that’s just me.What is the All Black psychology? You’re the best rugby team on the planet, but where do you go from there? [Question submitted by Gavin Dillon via Facebook]It’s a question I regularly get asked actually. It’s always tough at the top and there is that saying that when you are at the top, the only way is down, but the All Blacks haven’t really done that ever. Every team goes through their blips, but the thing with the All Black’s is perfection and the culture that is created.What is good is when they need to blood players, they don’t blood players six or seven at a time as that changes the dynamic of the team. They blood one or maybe two players at a time to get those guys clued in to what it takes to be an All Black on and off the field. Once they are integrated, they will blood someone else.The thing when I was there was that you are an All Black 24/7 on and off the field. There are standards you need to live up to. You do get to have a lot of fun, but when it’s time to get the work done, it’s done to the best of your ability. That’s basically the psychology.It may have changed now, but when I was there, you are in a fish bowl and there is a lot of expectation in the country and you don’t want to let your mates down.How do you feel about concussion management of late, and is there an obvious best practice solution from your point of view, or are the correct procedures in place?It’s a tough one this. I think at the top level it is right. When someone has a knock, you have the concussion bin and it takes the decisions away from coaches and players and puts it into the hands of doctors. That is the right way to go for me, but there is still an issue at grass roots level.There was a case in New Zealand at club level where a guy had two head knocks in a game and then collapsed and sadly passed away from brain swelling. At the top level we are very well protected. It’s a physical game and there will be head knocks, but you’ve got the best people there to take control and make the right calls.In the amateur school and club level, you don’t have that luxury. It’s something that needs to be looked at. It’s a difficult one because having a doctor at every game would cost a huge amount of money and you can’t logistically do that.There needs to be a bit more training for coaches and physios at these lower levels so if someone does get knocked, then there is someone there who knows the signs and we can hopefully avoid another case like that in New Zealand.For more on concussion awareness and prevention, be sure to check out AIG’s new programme called aHead of the Game.

first_imgNews Moldovan reporters harassed by Russian soldiers on border with Transnistria MoldovaEurope – Central Asia May 18, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Moldova: Where is it? What is it? RSF_en Official name: Republic of MoldovaArea: 33,700 sq kmPopulation: 4.3 million (Moldovans: 64 per cent; Ukrainians: 14 per cent; Russians: 13 per cent; Gagauz (an Orthodox Christian Turkic people): 3.5 per cent (about 150,000 inhabitants).Capital: Chisinau (717,000 inhabitants in 2005)Main cities: Tiraspol (“capital” of Transnistria, 182,000 inhabitants in 1994), Balti (128,000 inhabitants in 2005), Teghina (or Bender, 133,000 inhabitants in 1992)Official language: Moldovan (identical to Romanian). Russian is the “official language” in the breakaway territory of Transnistria.National holiday: 27 August (the day Moldova obtained its independence in 1991)Transnistria: a breakaway territory between the Dniester River and the Ukrainian border that is not recognised by the international community. It has a Slavic-speaking majority. It declared itself independent of Moldova in 1991, when Moldova became independent on the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Tiraspol is its capital.In an interview for the Romanian daily Romania on 5 May 2010, Moldovan foreign minister Iurie Leanca said: “Transnistria is part of the Republic of Moldova. I see no reason why we should renounce part of our territory and part of our citizens (…) We must create the conditions for reintegration.”Transnistria’s unresolved status is seen as an obstacle to Moldova’s admission to the European Union.What is the media situation in Moldova? Are journaliststreated differently on either side of the Dniepr?Interview with a freelance journalist specialising in Moldova and Transnistria (who prefers to remain anonymous for safety reasons) :Is the situation of journalists in Chisinau different from those in Tiraspol?The situation for journalists in Tiraspol is completely different from the current situation in Chisinau. Relations between the media and the authorities in Moldova have improved since the departure of President Voronin and his family in 2009. But the authorities still try to keep the press under control. They have not used force, but they offer tempting posts to journalists who have long been independent.It is completely different in Tiraspol. Firstly, there are no international institutions. The United Nations and Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) have no access to Transnistria. President Igor Smirnov and his clique are the only ones holding the reins. Transnistria is a militarised territory under the control of the Russian army’s 14th division. Power is concentrated in the hands of former KGB and GRU officers. There are no independent newspapers, no independent political party, and no independent police, prosecutors or judges.So, is it harder to work as a journalist in Transnistria?Most of the journalists working in Transnistria have another official job. If you are a Moldovan journalist, doing any reporting in Transnistria is dangerous because you risk being questioned and detained for several days.Foreign journalists need a written permit from the MGB, the Moldovan secret service, that says they are allowed to work in a specific area. People wanting to do freelance reporting can get by with just an ordinary tourist visa but they risk having their equipment or material seized if they take photos of sensitive places or events.There have been exceptions when everything has passed off without any problem, but that is not usually the case.What is the attitude of the authorities to freedom of expression?There is no freedom of expression as it is understood in Europe. In Transnistria, the secret services control the local NGOs and the youth organisations. I have heard of cases of HIV prevention activists being arrested and beaten in local police stations after taking part in international meetings.Do you think Russia influences Transnistria’s policies?The Kremlin is the only entity that has any power and any degree of control over President Smirnov. Several Russian politicians have direct contacts with the region and may therefore have some influence. The Kremlin is currently trying to change its image and give the impression that it no longer controls Smirnov, but that is false.How is the situation evolving?The situation has just got worse with the passing years. A few years ago it was dangerous to arrest a journalist because of the international community’s reactions. But now these reactions have become non-existent and abuses go unnoticed.Local journalists and NGOs are partly to blame. They are badly organised and do not publicise cases. In my opinion, Ernest Vardanean’s arrest is a logical consequence of the latent passivity. But it is also a test on the part of the authorities in Tiraspol: how far will we let them go?

I remember the day clearly. My neighbour’s daughter said to me “You must be looking forward to today” and I looked at her crazy because it wasn’t my birthday or anything. She then giggled and said “oh you’re getting your gudniin done”. Gudniin means circumcision in Somali. As she explained to me what exactly was going to happen, I sat there thinking that didn’t my mother said to not let anyone touch me? Would she let them touch me? I heard screaming from the other side of the house. It was a shrill and agonising shreak. It was my sister’s. Then before I could respond to it or analyse anything, I heard “Get Leyla. It’s Leyla’s turn.” I ran off, but of course, a seven year old cannot outrun an adult. They took me inside, pinned me to this table. There were aunties all around me, holding my hands and spreading my legs apart. I could feel my flesh being cut off. I blacked out from the pain.” Recounts Leyla Hussain, a FGM survivor born in Somali, Africa. She now actively advocates against the practices and is one of the founding member of the Daughters of Eve non-profit organisation. Female Genital mutilation or female circumcision or locally known as Khatna (hereinafter FGM) is an age old tradition of forcibly removing a girl’s external genitals without anaesthetics for non-medical reasons. In extreme cases, the external genitals are completely cut and the wound that is left is sewn together. The skin with time heals and stitches itself together sealing maximum portion of a girl’s vaginal orifice. A very small hole is left for urine and menstruation. The small hole, of course, is not sufficient for efficient and smooth flow of urine and blood and hence produces complications ranging from extreme pain during menstruation and miscarriages. The mother could face fatal complications while delivering a child. After the delivery the mother is cut and sewn again. Why is this an issue now? FGM has always been a grave issue and will remain to be one until major steps are taken to cull it. This is not widely recognised as of yet but it will soon be. Because of the pandemic, many middle-class families are being pushed down the economy ladder. They are now lower-class. Poverty is increasing due to the unprecedented crisis. Parents now would want to marry off their daughters for financial gains. FGM will prevail as it is a sign or virginity and hence purity. Cut daughters will bring more bride price, or so is believed. What are different types of Female genital Mutilation ? As per world health organization, Female genital mutilation is assessed into 4 major category. Category 1: This is often the partial or total removal of the clitoral glans (the external and visual a part of the clitoris, which may be a sensitive a part of the feminine genitals). Category 2: This is often the partial or total removal of the clitoral glans and therefore the labium (the inner folds of the vulva), with or without removal of the labium (the outer folds of skin of the vulva). Category 3: It is also referred to as infibulation, this is often the narrowing of the vaginal opening through the creation of a covering seal. The seal is made by cutting and repositioning the labium , or labium , sometimes through stitching, with or without removal of the clitoral prepuce/clitoral hood and glans. Deinfibulation is a practice of piercing the covered vaginal opening of a women who has been infibulated to facilitate intercourse and childbirth. Category 4: In this category, all other kinds of detrimental practices to the female genitals for unethical purposes. It damages healthy and normal female genital tissue, and indulges with the natural functions of women’s bodies. Risks of FGM increase with increasing severity from Category 1 to Category 4. It leads to range of problems which deteriorates women’s condition in future. Is FGM practised in India? Yes, sadly it is practiced in India. At least 200 million girls alive today living in 31 countries including India have undergone FGM, says UNICEF. It is practiced primarily in the Dawoodi Bohra comunity, a sect of shia muslims in India. The Bohra High priest Syedna calls the external part of female genitalia as haram ki boti, or sinful flesh which must be cut to preserve female chastity and virtue. Primarily, it ensures ‘pre-marital virginity’. The tradition is wrapped in patriarchal values of protecting and controlling women’s sexuality, body and in gender inequality. Khatna, which is basically FGM as called in India, is practiced not only by Bohra women but also by a woman who wants to marry a Bohra man. She has to produce a certificate of cut before the marriage. FGM is basically telling a woman that her body is there just to carry babies. My mother was not cut once but twice because a neighbour thought not enough flesh was being taken away, recites a woman who refused to perform FGM. Women who refuse are labelled as outcasts and are isolated by the community. They are impure for a woman who thinks she has more right on her body than her future husband is impure. They are called feminists as if being called one is an insult. Recently a Petition has been filed by the name Sunita Tiwari v. Union of India where a complete ban on FGM has been prayed. It was prayed in September, 2018 too but the division bench recommended a constitutional bench to the case. It is pending before the Honourable Supreme Court of India. One could rant about banning FGM, holding protests with a group of like-minding people and it will still continue in the secret of the streets. It is called the positive deviant approach, no one will follow my lead like this. Hence, praying for a ban on the practice is means to achieve an end and not the end itself. If FGM is so horrifying and absurd, why does it still happen? I have three simple but concrete conclusions. First, we can’t let go of FGM simply because it is a tradition. No matter how absurd, no matter ho horrific, it is a tradition. It has been there longer than you and I, our ancestors did it and so it simply must continue. This is how almost everyone (primarily the males) who was asked about this practice responded. Here, we may question as to how FGM became a tradition? Because mothers in every culture felt a dire need to protect their daughters from monsters who will take away their chastity. Because daughters hold the honour of her father, of her community, she must be protected. She like a classic damsel-in-distress must wait for her prince to rescue her. Second reason why it is still practiced is the fact that FGM is a societal norm. It is something that I will do simply because you as my peer expect it of me. It is actually a social obligation. For example, waxing body hair. Nobody has asked us to do it, but somebody started doing it and now we all do it and if one of us doesn’t do it, we frown upon the person who does not do it. Third reason why it is still practised because FGM is related to cultural ideals of femininity and modesty. It is usually motivated by beliefs about what’s considered acceptable sexual behaviour. It aims to ascertain premarital virginity and marital fidelity. It is believed in many communities to scale back a woman’s libido and thus believed to assist her resist extramarital sexual acts. When a vaginal opening is roofed or narrowed, the fear of the pain of opening it, and therefore the fear that this may be acknowledged, is predicted to further discourage extramarital sexual activity among women with FGM. FGM is usually considered a necessary a part of raising a woman , and how to organize her for adulthood and marriage. Although, FGM has no health benefits, and it harms women in many ways. Since, we’ve identified why FGM still exists, we can think of a solution to prevent it. How do we stop the practice of FGM? Learning from the Tostan model in Senegal Now, we know it is a societal norm and what’s important for a societal norm is that it has to shift collectively. Aiming at banning a practice completely is never the solution. Prohibition creates rebels which is always more trouble. It simply doesn’t work. Why won’t it work? We didn’t make them question it. For this to work, every individual must consciously know why FGM is so wrong. Similar approach was implemented by an organisation called Tostan in Senegal, Africa. Tostan is non-governmental organisation headquartered in Senegal. The founder Molly Melching when arrived in Africa, found out that lack of basic education in the area fuelled the ongoing traditions, especially FGM and child marriage. She with the help of her team trained locals and implemented a three year educating program. The objective was to teach the locals about human rights. They need to know what their rights were and how they were being violated. They presented classes in local levels and provided a stage for dialogue and consensus building. The program is called the community empowerment program. The basic work of this organization is to convince pairs of villages to stop the practice of FGM together, so that each village will have partners which regard girls and women in the other village as marriageable. The desire for social acceptance and ensuring that your children are considered worthy of marriage by potential partners is one of the drivers of FGM. More than 7,200 villages have been convinced to give up this practice. This organisation helped change the pluralistic ignorance of the society towards a said tradition as a whole. A law is made according to a society. India didn’t decriminalise the sodomy law because the apex court felt the society wasn’t simply ready for the change. It was ripe for discussion but not implementation. Here, by changing the collective conscience of the society as a whole, Tostan helped change the future laws of the country. The question never was about whether FGM should be allowed or not, but rather, whether it should be done to children to young to participate in it. It is essentially child abuse and hence a crime. In addition to this, FGM also tells us about how a girl is never her own person but always someone’s daughter, sister, wife or mother. Every 11 seconds a mother risks the life of her daughter by practicing FGM and we still find time to fight for justice of a celebrity. We are more interested in the fact that a certain female celebrity is sweeping her house and a certain president tweeted something absurd and created a new word called covfefe than the fact that a girl struggles to walk properly for weeks after the flesh between her legs is cut off. She experiences pain so excruciating that she often passes out cold. Banning as can be said is the first step, not the last. Since, the lockdown and the crisis have increased the probability of increasing cases of FGM, we need to act now.Views are personal only.Next Storylast_img read more

Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and Ajay Rastogi upheld a judgment of Division Bench of Kerala High Court which held that Section 14 of the Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act,  mandating the District Magistrate to deliver possession of a secured asset within 30 days, extendable to an aggregate of 60 days upon reasons recorded in writing, is a directory provision.Section 14 of the Act provides the procedure for Chief Metropolitan Magistrate or District Magistrate to assist secured creditor in taking possession of secured asset. The proviso empowers the authority to pass suitable orders for the purpose of taking possession of the secured asset within a period of thirty days from the date of application. Second Proviso states that, if no order is passed by the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate or District Magistrate within the said period of thirty days for reasons beyond his control, he may, after recording reasons in writing for the same, pass the order within such period not exceeding in the aggregate sixty daysTo hold that this stipulation is not mandatory, the High court had noted that, it is not the borrower, guarantor or lessee, who will be adversely affected or prejudiced, in any manner, whether such applications are decided in 60, 70 or 80 days, but it would be the secured creditor who will be adversely affected if the provision is construed as mandatory and not directory. The court held that such a construction would delay the process of taking physical possession of assets instead of expediting such process by entailing the filing of another application for such purpose.Agreeing with this view, the bench observed that the time limit stipulation is to instill a confidence in creditors that the District Magistrate will make an attempt to deliver possession. It also rejected the contention of the appellant that if the District Magistrate is not able to take decision within 60 days, the secured creditor has to find its remedy elsewhere and not in terms of Section 14 of the Act. The court said:”Keeping the objective of the Act in mind, the time limit to take action by the District Magistrate has been fixed to impress upon the authority to take possession of the secured assets. However, inability to take possession within time limit does not render the District Magistrate Functus Officio. The secured creditor has no control over the District Magistrate who is exercising jurisdiction under Section 14 of the Act for public good to facilitate recovery of public dues. Therefore, Section 14 of the Act is not to be interpreted literally without considering the object and purpose of the Act. If any other interpretation is placed upon the language of Section 14, it would be contrary to the purpose of the Act. The time limit is to instill a confidence in creditors that the District Magistrate will make an attempt to deliver possession as well as to impose a duty on the District Magistrate to make an earnest effort to comply with the mandate of the statute to deliver the possession within 30 days and for reasons to be recorded within 60 days. In this light, the remedy under Section 14 of the Act is not rendered redundant if the District Magistrate is unable to handover the possession. The District Magistrate will still be enjoined upon, the duty to facilitate delivery of possession at the earliest.”Interim orders should generally not be passed without hearing the secured creditorThe court also observed that the High Courts should be extremely careful and circumspect in exercising its discretion to grant stay in SARFAESI Matters. While upholding the High Court judgment, the court said:”Even though, this Court in United Bank of India v. Satyawati Tondon & Ors. held that in cases relating to recovery of the dues of banks, financial institutions and secured creditors, stay granted by the High Court would have serious adverse impact on the financial health of such bodies/institutions, which will ultimately prove detrimental to the economy of the nation. Therefore, the High Court should be extremely careful and circumspect in exercising its discretion to grant stay in such matters. Hindon Forge Private Limited has held that the remedy of an aggrieved person by a secured creditor under the Act is by way of an application before the Debts Recovery Tribunal, however, borrowers and other aggrieved persons are invoking the jurisdiction of the High Court under Articles 226 or 227 of the Constitution of India without availing the alternative statutory remedy. The Hon’ble High Courts are well aware of the limitations in exercising their jurisdiction when affective alternative remedies are available, but a word of caution would be still necessary for the High Courts that interim orders should generally not be passed without hearing the secured creditor as interim orders defeat the very purpose of expeditious recovery of public money.”Case: C.
