tour of England with a flourish in the fourth Test at Old Trafford The Proteas head into the match with only a share of the spoils available to them after a thumping 239-run defeat in the third Test at The Oval left then 2-1 down with just one to play A tour that started back in mid-May has already seen South Africa lose one-day international and Twenty20 series to England with the Proteas suffering a disappointing first- round exit in the Champions Trophy as well during their time in England But victory at Old Trafford would at least ensure South Africa maintain a proud away Test record In their past 19 series they’ve won 13 drawn five and lost just one — in India in 2015/16 But if they are to triumph at Old Trafford — a ground where their lone Test win in eight visits came back in 1955 — they will surely need an improved showing from their top order For all that South Africa were handicapped at The Oval by the stomach illness suffered by key seamer Vernon Philander being bowled out for just 175 in their first innings put them at a disadvantage they were never able to overcome in the rest of the match They did make a better showing in the second innings with opener Dean Elgar making their first hundred of the series in a total of 252 England still won by 239 runs but du Plessis believes left-handed opener Elgar’s innings has set a timely example “Hopefully the batters can respond well because he showed us how you need to bat in Test match cricket” he said “We will try to make sure that we can do exactly what he did in the last Test” added du Plessis who played at Old Trafford for county side Lancashire South Africa will look to Hashim Amla for a big contribution after the star batsman twice fell cheaply to England debutant seamer Toby Roland-Jones in south London England off-spinner Moeen Ali ended that match in spectacular fashion with the first hat-trick in The Oval’s 100-Test history Yet with Ali a frontline county batsman coming in at No 8 England coach Trevor Bayliss is still not sure his side have got the balance right Ben Stokes made a valuable century in the middle order at The Oval and Bayliss with an Ashes tour on the horizon said: “I’m still of the view we don’t need more than seven batters” But quite how the Australian removes a ‘spare’ batsman from his XI at Old Trafford is an intriguing question South Africa-born Keaton Jennings has been struggling but England have no other specialist opener in their squad to partner Alastair Cook Tom Westley made a fifty on debut at The Oval in at No 3 so it would be surprising if he was promoted to open alongside Essex team-mate Cook Liam Dawson remains in the squad after featuring in the first two Tests but quite how England recall the Hampshire left-arm spinner unless they think the Old Trafford pitch will take sharp turn is hard to see Since 2000 England have won eight and lost just one of 12 Tests at Old Trafford a ground that shares its name with Manchester United’s nearby stadium One encouraging factor for South Africa has been the see-saw nature of this series with England winning the first Test at Lord’s by 211 runs only for the Proteas to hit back with a 340-run success at Trent Bridge before another lopsided encounter at The Oval “We’ve not done things by halves so far in this series” said England captain Joe Root “It’s just important that we take (with us) the way we’ve played (at The Oval) — especially the way we batted which I thought was exceptional” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related

going down has evoked more schadenfreude than sorrow in media circles because many of us have long seen fraudulence in the high moral tone that the magazine has always taken Personally I have no tears to shed at the squalid demise of Tehelka because for me even its first sting operation was entrapment and not investigative journalism When the BJP government foolishly tried to punish Tehelkas first investorsI stood with thembut noticed soon after that there was something mysterious about the magazines finances and something hypocritical about its politics There is no harm in a newspaper openly supporting a political partybut to do it under the guise of investigative journalism that targets only the other side is wrong It is equally wrongin my viewto build a business empire with money taken from dodgy businessmen under the cloak of righteous journalism But Tarun Tejpal was good at promoting himselfand has been for at least a decade the darling of Lutyens liberals His closeness to the Gandhi family helped him acquire a large collection of friends and followers Soto his THiNK Festwould duly trot some of the most powerful politicians in the land Having attended the first of these events I can report that thinking was less on peoples minds than partying What the whole sordid story gives us though is a chance to talk about how badly the Indian media has been damaged by the collusion between journalistspoliticians and rich businessmen Tarun is far from being the only journalist to have become a powerbroker in Lutyens Delhi There are manymany others They are mostly men and women from small towns who are bedazzled by the access they get to political power once they become famous editors or columnists Nearly all of them make a lot of money very quickly in unexplained ways And because they have such access to political powertheir newly acquired wealth is never investigated So they go from strength to strengthfrom high national awards to the Rajya Sabhaand end up betraying the profession that gave them their fame and power This is mostly becausesince the advent of private television channelsjournalists have acquired immense powers to break political careers and defile the reputation of big industrialists From this has been born hubris of the kind that led to Taruns disgrace and downfall It has led to the lines between media power and political power blurring enough for journalists to forget what their real role is and start thinking of themselves as players in the political game It is an easy delusion because the Indian media today is so powerful that it has often judged and punished people before they have been given a chance to prove their innocence in a court of law It is ironic that Tarun should today find himself in this awful position because Tehelkas brand of investigative journalism has been brutally judgmental And often wrong I know people who have been judged and punished by Tehelka without being given a chance to tell their side of the story The victims usually condemned without a trial have been from the corporate sectorso I have to say it warmed my heart to discover that what Tehelka was doing behind the veils of high-mindedrighteous journalism was in fact building a business empire for the Tejpal family and Shoma Chaudhury Her role since the young journalist made her charges has been so much in conflict with the militant feminism she usually espouses that it has infuriated her feminist friends So can anything good come of all this Yes It gives the Indian media a chance to do some introspection and find out how a way can be found for the Fourth Estate to redeem some of its lost honour The Indian media is more powerful today than it has ever beenbut such corruption has crept into its fabric that I find myself often thinking of the Seventies when I got my first job as a reporter in The Statesman and when the Indian media was just a handful of badly printed newspapers Media owners were too poor to pay for reporters to travel out of Delhi to cover stories then so they relied on moffusil stringers who earned a couple of hundred rupees a month If the story was too big for a stringer to handlewe would go into the mofussil on buses and stay in filthy little rural hotels and file our stories from post offices that smelled of dusty files The media had very little power in those times because most Indians were illiterateand there were no powerbrokers or celebrity TV anchors Butwhat there was in those times was integrityand in recent days I have become nostalgic for it Follow Tavleen Singh

Akhzer | Chandigarh | Published: March 13 2017 5:58 am Amitabh Awasthi at PGI Photo by Adil Top News Amitabh Avasthi Deputy Director Administration (DDA) at PGIMER in an interview to Adil Akhzer says faith in the institute and the trust in PGI doctors is why the institute sees a large number of patients on a daily basis and discusses the issue of streamlining the administration You were appointed for this post last year What are the challenges you found after you took charge Change in assignments is a part of our job and the health sector is not new to my job profile PGI is a national-level institute where things are entirely different and here the struggle is about maintaining its level and legacy So in that way the assignment was different and challenging A few challenges which came across when I took over in order of priority were that I felt that there are certain services which need to be augmented It was strongly felt that certain works were not functional due to certain disputes of lack of funds and the challenge was to take them forward come up with new centres of patient care and the perennial challenge of maintaining the queues trying to reduce the rush and ensuring that people get sufficient time from the doctors or the consultants for patient care So that’s how this sector was different Watch What Else Is Making News How have you dealt with the challenges The work has already started in all the areas The major was the 250-bed hospital because it was found out that 16 important services were left out of the plan when this was initially envisaged’I’m very happy that the CPWD has now awarded and is in the process of starting the work Another challenge was providing air-conditioning to the new OPD and improvement of Nehru Hospital The process has also started in these two major areas So as far as the air conditioning is concerned we got it sanctioned from the SFC The major challenge there is to shift the departments in a phased manner from that area to certain other places It has a technical problem attached to it because the engineering perspective is that they would need the maximum area available to carry out the repairs and AC services PGI is seeing a huge rush of patients Are you doing something for that Queuing up of the patients decrease of rush are the daily problems which people have to face right now We are actively involving ourselves for a proposal which gives us an idea as to how through the softwares display of the electronic boards kiosks which would be located in different areas would facilitate people to deposit their fee and seek services at one counter There is also the often stated suggestion regarding the multipurpose card which would act as the debit card and the registration card for the people and for depositing fees of the tests which people have to get carried out in PGI So this is the plan I think it’s going to take us at least 6 more months to make it concrete before it’s implemented This is something that we look at as the biggest challenge and we face in the institute As an administration head what have you done to streamline the administration What we’re trying to do is through a consultative process we’ve been talking to the stakeholders whether they are our faculty members other people in the staff belonging to different categories their respective associations so that there is no communication gap between the administration and its other stakeholders as we all are working for the betterment of the institute and for providing better care to the patients who come to this institute All pending matters pertaining to the staff of the institute have been defined properly and a timeline for the completion of the task has been notified Recently PGI ordered cancellation of office superintendents promotions What have you done to prevent such incidents Right now I’d like not to comment on the issue because the matter is sub judice From now onwards what ‘we’re trying to do is whenever any test takes place especially the internal ones the promotional ones we’ll display the results on our websites the same day with the score so that there is no heart-burning and there are no feelings amongst the people that certain things can be managed The governing body also ordered review of six cases of faculty recruitment Do you think there is a problem with the selection committee The selection committee is a properly constituted committee with subject experts and people of eminence in their fields who discharge their duties very diligently There are some technical points on the basis of which certain things have to be dealt with Parking is a major issue in the institute What is being done for this This is an institute where on average 7000-8000 vehicles enter the campus and leave primarily between 8 am to 12:30 pm The issue is peak hours for the institutes because at that time OPDs are brimming with people tests have to be carried out and the environment is like that In addition to the vehicles which enter the campus we have at least 2000 more vehicles belonging to the staff of the institute so you need parking space for 10000 vehicles Right now the defined space available with us is for around 4000 vehicles We need to enhance the parking spaces but it commiserates with the master plan which is under submission and is likely to be approved shortly We’ve had meetings with the UT administration to explain our viewpoint to the concerned authorities A multi-level parking for 900 vehicles is under way and as soon as the master plan approval is accorded three more parkings that are in the plan will be worked upon What is the reason the institute is receiving patients which can be handled at district hospitals It’s simply because people have a lot of faith in the institute and they trust the doctors You’re absolutely right in saying that only referrals should come here We’ve already taken up the issue with governments of Punjab Haryana Himachal Pradesh and the UT Administration The health authorities of these states have been requested to kindly see to it that people with basic problems are being taken care of as per the infrastructure available in those states Of late there is an increase in agitations by the associations which affect patient care Any steps being taken to prevent these agitations There are some incidents which are actually impulsive episodes between two individuals which somehow get converted into issues of two stakeholders We have had a discussion with all the stakeholders and they have been clearly informed that if they have any problem they can approach us anytime for amicable solutions to the issues but no indiscipline in the institute will be tolerated We have already issued a circular in this regard…agitations in the future will be treated as illegal Recently it was reported that PGI is overcharging from patients in the sale of stents The institute has not received any notice from NPPA We don’t sell stents The Amrit coordinates the stents here When we received the information from the press we asked for reports from concerned departments and we were informed that stents are being provided at the approved rates Fire safety is an important issue Last year there was a tragedy in a hospital in Odisha What steps are you taking here It is very serious We have received directions from the ministry There are some old buildings We are actively in the process of getting NOCs from the various departments to make all the buildings fire compliant So when will the PGI get a new director It’s been five months and people are raising questions that the institute without a regular director is affecting the work of the institute The matter is at an appropriate level for a decision Having a regular director is always good for institute although it is not appropriate to say that in the absence of a regular director things are not happening in PGI
