women facing violencedomestic and social problems “I will not let the film to be released before my permission” Pal said before entering the ‘Bigg Boss’ house “I feel she (Madhuri) should meet me once

justice” she said The film has been written and will be directed by Soumik Sen and is produced by Anubhav Sinha of ‘RaOne’ fame “I came to know that a film called ‘Gulab Gang’ is being made and will

Updated: January 28 2014 12:00 pm Arun Kumar is known to love his Harley Davidson and also for bringing in out-of-the-box methods to the role of coaching Express Related News Two seasons ago when he was the coach of the Karnataka Under-25 team Jagadeesh Arun Kumar had the urge to ride his motorbike The team was playing in Chennai but the Harley Davidson was parked in his garage in Bangalore On the rest day he gave in to his biker impulse returned to Bangalore revved up the engine and rode 350 kilometres to be back in time for the next game Most of the time though ‘JAK’ the nickname he goes by wears the mask of sobriety of a middle-aged cricket coach On the Harley and showing off his tattoos however you could mistake him for a member of the Indian Hell’s Angels But what he likes to be known as is a coach who has clocked the miles the hard way on the cricket field Arun has played over a 100 first-class matches scored over 7000 runs scored hundreds in back-to-back Ranji Trophy finals for a victorious Karnataka in the late 90s And now he is currently on a high Karnataka have entered the Ranji Trophy final and will play Maharashtra in Hyderabad a little over a year after he was appointed their batting coach This season Karnataka’s batsmen have score 13 hundreds — the most by any side Three of them have come from Karun Nair 22 who made his debut a little over a month ago Lokesh Rahul 21 has scored a season-best 873 runs and scored two of this three hundreds in the past months Medium-pacer HS Sharath who made his debut last season has 32 scalps while rookie leggie Shreyas Gopal has scalped 18 wickets One of the reasons for the team’s success is the changes to the coaching staff Ahead of the 2012-13 season the Anil Kumble-led Karnataka State Cricket Association decided to split the coaching duties JAK was appointed as batting coach and MAK (Mansur Ali Khan) became the bowling coach The other reason was due to the timely selection of youngsters “We felt that we needed to look beyond players who are 26-27 but are still fighting for a place in the squad If they were struggling to make the team then it was better to give youngsters a break” Arun says of the biggest challenge he faced when he took over Senior players like KB Pawan and Rajoo Bhatkal were replaced by fresher legs and up to six players have made their debuts since ‘Sweeping’ changes Changes however were not restricted to personnel alone The baseball bat and a broom were new additions to the training equipment Arun is a certified Level-II coach but he also has the ability to think out of the box Instead of using an angled cricket bat to give catching practice to the wicketkeeper and the regular slip fielders the coach made use of the barrel bat and the broom Both had advantages over traditional equipment Just ask CM Gautam the wicketkeeper Gautam puts down his 80-odd dismissals over two seasons to Arun’s originality “When the ball hits the bristles of the broom and passes through it it gives out a sounds similar to what occurs when there is an edge in a match When the regular bat is angled and used for catching practice the sound is not what is produced when the ball is edged” he says “During a game when I used to hear the edge my fingers would stiffen because I wasn’t practising to the same sound After catching off the broom my fingers are now relaxed when an edge comes my way in matches” The baseball bat on the other hand is used to train slip fielders with Arun attempting to play proper cricketing shots like the cover drive and the cut “It is amazing how he is able to play shots with the baseball bat and also provide edges for catching practice” adds Gautam Arun feels the advantage is that when he plays shots with the baseball bat the velocity of the ball doesn’t reduce as much as it does when compared to a cricket bat “The idea came to me because I don’t stick to only the textbook coaching method” the coach says But even before he became a coach Arun gave the impression that he marched to the tune of a different drummer Rahul Dravid JAK’s senior in college claims that he wasn’t ever a conformist “I remember JAK as someone who has always been different I recall in one particular Shafi Darasha match JAK was playing against a team that had Javagal Srinath and Venkatesh Prasad who were pretty quick back then JAK went out to play with an unusually heavy bat (18 kilograms) which he had got made I was wondering how he would cope” says Dravid still amazed “But his logic worked It went something like this Because he was playing with a heavy bat he wouldn’t move it too much and on contact the ball would go for boundaries He scored 70-odd in that innings” Unconventional wisdom added on top of a strong cricketing foundation is the secret to JAK’s success feels Dravid “He has done his coaching courses and has the experience of playing for Karnataka for many years with distinction JAK and MAK have created the right kind of environment in the Karnataka dressing room and it is working as the youngsters are coming into the team and performing straight away” Dravid says Then he adds: “It also helps that as a coach JAK is one among the boys and not a dictator” JAK sports more tattoos than the average Indian cricketer of this generation The current lot have helped in the mushrooming of the tattoo culture but none of them can lay claim to being the pioneer In 2004 when Arun Kumar got the first of his tattoos he became the daddy-cool of cricketers The tattoo read ‘Deipal’ the name of his daughter This was while playing for a minor county club in Ireland Up in smoke “During my playing days I guess people didn’t take me seriously enough or they didn’t think I was serious about cricket I may have had a different outlook to life and the game but I always gave my best” Arun says “There was talk that I don’t work hard enough But the truth is I used to work doubly hard because I was a smoker even in my playing days and I knew if I had to be as fit as the non-smokers I had to put in that extra bit I used to work out in the mornings and do my exercises but the selectors and officials would only come to the stadium at noon So they had a wrong impression about me” As a coach JAK now has broken the mould again “Our team meetings last not more than five minutes on the first morning of a Ranji Trophy game That way the message is fresh It works because the boys have been empowered to take decisions and be accountable for it and in turn they have all become responsible and confident in their abilities” he claims “As a young player I used to dread the long-winding team meetings that used to stretch into hours The coaches would be saying the same thing again and again and no one would be listening After a point you just switch off In the Karnataka team MAK and I talk only when we think it is really necessary I believe that a coach must keep his mouth shut most of the time” The democratisation of the dressing room has helped Common interests — super bikes fast cars music and pool — form snatches of conversation between JAK and the boys Most times they are listening to their coach because he can identify a motorbike from the thump of its engine as well as spot why a cover drive needs a little tweaking For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsResearchers have built devices that harness changes in atmospheric humidity to generate small amounts of electricity lift tiny weights and even power a toy car In the grand scheme of things that captured energy is not free but it’s pretty darn close The study suggests that evaporation could be used to operate a variety of gadgets that don’t require a lot of power scientists say “This is one of the first experiments to show that humidity can be a source of fuel” says Albert Schenning a materials scientist at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands who wasn’t involved in the new study The team’s designs he says “are very nice and very clever” All the gadgets rely on a simple phenomenon—the change in size of bacterial spores as they absorb moisture from the air and then release it says team leader Ozgur Sahin a biophysicist at Columbia University Sahin and his colleagues used the living but dormant spores from Bacillus subtilis a species of bacteria commonly found in soil and in the human gastrointestinal tract Each spore typically swells and then shrinks up to 6% when moved from dry air to extremely humid air and then back again Sahin says The researchers harnessed that size-changing action by gluing thin layers of spores onto one side of curved sheets of polymer When the spores swelled that side of the polymer sheet lengthened—which in turn caused the curved sheet to somewhat straighten out The stretching and contracting of these spore-coated polymer sheets are the driving force for the team’s devices A change in size of 6% may not sound that impressive But when the researchers strung together a series of these polymer sheets the “artificial muscles” they created quadrupled in length when relative humidity changed from below 30% to more than 80% the team reports today in Nature Communications The thicker the spore layer the longer it would take for the muscles to react to changes in humidity So to make sure their artificial muscles were quick-acting the researchers used spore layers that were extremely thin—no more than 3 micrometers thick or about 5 spores deep on average Sahin says Tests showed that the devices could react to humidity changes within 3 seconds he notes Tests also revealed that the spore-coated polymer strips could expand and shrink for more than 1 million cycles with little change in their range of motion Other trials showed that the strips when they shrank could lift more than 50 times their own weight (video) But they did so much more slowly than an animal’s muscle would so the power they generated—that is their rate of energy production—was correspondingly low Nevertheless the team harnessed changes in humidity to perform actual work In one device the back-and-forth motion driven by one artificial muscle suspended above a postage stamp–sized patch of water provided enough electrical power to light an LED In another the expansion of muscles on one side of a Ferris wheel–like device (where the air was humidified by evaporation from a wet paper towel) but not the other triggered an imbalance that caused the wheel to rotate (video) The team used the motion of a similar wheel to power a 100-gram toy car (video) “These are fun demonstrations but they prove the principle” says Peter Fratzl a materials scientist at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam Germany who was not involved with the work Researchers are constantly looking for sources of energy even if they’re small he notes “It makes sense to use these gradients [in humidity] because they’re everywhere and they’re free” The team’s results are a good conceptual starting point says George Whitesides a chemist at Harvard University Such devices could in theory generate enough electricity to run a few transistors he adds “But it will still be a while before these things are in every child’s bathtub”Written by Express News Service | Ludhiana | Published: March 6 2009 2:47 am Related News JMD
