News Older brothers do not usually take too kindly to being offered advice by younger siblings but Germany’s Mischa Zverev listened to 19-year-old Alexander and it helped turn his career around Until a few weeks ago the only Zverev being spoken about in glowing terms was the younger version whose swashbuckling game has already seen him tipped as a future grand slam champion But last month in Melbourne the 29-year-old Mischa burst from the shadows to fell world number one Andy Murray at the Australian Open with a serve-and-volley style that went out of fashion with flares Up to a career-high 35 in the rankings still 13 places below his high-flying brother Zverev has also forced his way back into Germany’s Davis Cup team which this week in Frankfurt against Belgium will feature two brothers for the first time Since his only other appearance in 2009 the Moscow-born Zverev has been ravaged by injuries but he said the rise of his kid brother helped give him have a new positive outlook “Call it naive maybe but (Alexander) has this young positive outlook he just kept telling me to believe in good things” Zverev told Reuters after the draw on Thursday “He tells me ‘look just stop confusing yourself with facts’ just believe in yourself because dreams can come true like we saw not so long ago in Melbourne He has had faith in me “I like to think I’ve helped him too of course Telling him about my experiences on Tour and in life” Family pride can be a big motivator though and watching Alex grow from the “little kid” who tried to join in with his brother’s practice sessions to the “next big thing” spurred him on to greater efforts “When he started to play really well a year or two ago I was really thrilled and excited and then it was up to me to get my ranking up and improve my tennis” he said “I had to catch up with him and maybe be part of the journey he is taking right now It’s an incredible thing” After all the hard graft to turn his career around Zverev whose father played Davis Cup for the former Soviet Union is determined not to be a one-hit wonder and only remembered as the man who produced one of the sport’s biggest shocks “I really did enjoy the whole experience in Australia” he said “Looking back on it the off-season was very tough but now I realise it was actually a lot of fun because it was part of such a great journey overall “It has sunk in now but tennis moves fast Whatever happened last week south of the equator has to stay there “That’s in the past already so hopefully I can take the confidence and all the positive experience I’ve got from that and take that into the whole of the 2017 season” The only problem is his crafty net-rushing style and volleying skills will no longer be a secret weapon “Players will focus on me now and try to figure out my game a bit better” he said “But I’ll accept that and keep working You never know what’s going to happen in the next few weeks” Germany’s Davis Cup captain Michael Kohlmann said Zverev’s style was good for tennis “We were missing that style” he said “It was an unbelievable match against Murray and I think it’s opened up tennis a bit Hopefully he can continue his form” For all

practice day at the RK Khanna Stadium in New Delhi on Wednesday (Source: PTI) Top News A week before arriving in Delhi Ramkumar Ramanathan got a taste of Spain in Italy As has been the case virtually the whole year the 21-year-old Indian lost early in a Challenger tournament in Genova Just as he was planning to take an early flight to Delhi Ramanathan bumped into Tommy Robredo’s coach The Spanish veteran too was playing the same tournament and the Indian managed to get a short training session with him This weekend in Delhi Ramanathan will be up against some other bigger Spanish names And there are fears that the Davis Cup singles rubbers against Rafa Nadal and David Ferrer might turn into prolonged training sessions for the world no 203 India’s Davis Cup non-playing captain Anand Amritraj hopes that won’t be the case He wants Ramanathan to cause some upsets Not just during the world group playoff tie against Spain which begins Friday but also on the ATP circuit A lot is expected from Ramanathan on the singles circuit but after the initial spurt his career seems to have plateued That gutsy three sets win over Somdev Devvarman at the Chennai Open now seems light years away Incidentally that first round tie – played on New Year’s eve in 2013 – also triggered an astonishing downfall for Devvarman A remarkable loss of form combined with frustrating spells of injuries resulted in Devvarman sitting out for a major part of the last two years The ever-so-delicate Yuki Bhambri too has sat out for virtually the whole of 2016 nursing an injury In absence of India’s two best singles bets this should have been the weekend where Ramanathan could have finally marked his arrival on the big stage Instead he will be playing second fiddle to Saketh Myneni – a late-bloomer who was nowhere in the picture when Ramanathan burst on to the scene two years ago but has eventually surpassed him Amritraj says it’s time the Ramanathan moved to ‘bigger leagues’ “Last two years he has been around 200 He needs to play bigger tournaments I have told him ‘you need to get rid of the Futures and play more Challengers’ and an occasional ATP event” Amritraj says “He needs to move to bigger leagues and get beyond the 200 mark maybe closer to 150 like Saketh Yuki and Somdev have It’s time he does that He’ll be 22 in November so he has some time in his hand but not much” Ramanathan has won four titles in his career so far But all have been on the Futures circuit “But Futures are obviously easier you can win several of them However you can win only 18 or 27 points depending on the kind of tournament you’re playing He beats people he is supposed to beat He has to move up and cause some upsets That’s what I am looking for” Amritraj adds To be fair Ramanathan has played more Challengers this year compared to the last two But the transition hasn’t been smooth He lost in the opening of the last last tournaments he entered – in Como Genova and California Earlier this week he acknowledged the results haven’t been great but insisted that when he loses in the first round he tries to train for rest of the week with ‘very good players’ Like the training session with Robredo Ramanathan also had a short stint with Australia’s Nick Kyrgios just before Wimbledon this year This weekend will be the first time Ramanathan will be tested against quality opponents on a big stage So far he’s shown few signs of being nervous saying he will try to be aggressive against the Spaniards “Whatever happens here it’s going to improve my game and help me going into future tournaments” Ramanathan who made his Davis Cup debut against South Korea in July says Amritraj too trusts his abilities His towering frame endless energy and powerful shots have all impressed him throughout this week during practice How well he executes it on Friday remains to be seen “But Ram generally likes a big stage just like Leander” Amritraj says “He thrives in big-match scenarios I’m sure he’ll fight

are that the available water is likely to be inadequate for meeting the summer demands of Surat from around 2015 onwardsthe Suratis recognise the importance of recycling domestic waste wateralong with

to the nitty-gritty of the extension and maintenance of the sewerage networkand augmentation/ upgradation of a highly efficient and almost comprehensive system of treatment of waste wateron the one

feast of initiatives on sustainable developmentwe focus on SMCs work on waste water treatment and its use of sewage treatment plants (STPs) to generate electricity from biogas This enables SMC to meet some of its electricity demand for its multiple operations in the city and also to contribute to a better environment Lying in an almost flat terrain poses a special challenge to sewerage and storm water drainage systems for Surat In the last 10 yearsconsiderable effort has been directed at developing a storm water drainage systembut even soas of 2012-13the coverage is only 64 per cent better than in most Indian citiesbut not good enough The JNNURM has played an important role in helping augment the storm water drainage network in the old city area and in developing networks in the Vesu urban settlement and in the New East Zone areas Waste water treatment in Surat covered as much as 92 per cent of the population in 2006 but the very large expansion in city limits brought the coverage down to 75 per cent in that year Through concerted effortSurat has managed to increase its waste water treatment coverage of population to over 90 per cent in 2011-12once again This compares with an average of 30 per cent for all Indian cities Navi Mumbai is the only city in India that treats 100 per cent of its waste water before disposing the same As the network of sewer lines and rising mains

and giving its existing network business a boost The new traffic routers can handle the greater demands of virtual reality programming cloud-based internet services and next-generation mobile communications the Finnish company said Nokia’s new products which grew out of its 156 billion-euro ($175 billion) 2016 acquisition of Alcatel and its IP network gear business should help it win business from companies such as Facebook Google Apple and Amazon For these “web-scale” customers speed is everything and unlike Nokia’s traditional telecoms customers they are still increasing spending on network gear The routers are compatible with older products and will also serve Nokia’s existing customers who want speed but must still contend with legacy gear needed to run existing services “Nokia will have the highest-performance system capacity in the market and a lot of those web-scalers they just want speed” Ray Mota principal analyst at ACG Research told Reuters The former Alcatel IP networks business is already the world’s No 2 player in edge routers behind Cisco having displaced Juniper Networks which is now No 3 The Nokia business also competes with Huawei in router markets outside the United States where the privately-held Chinese firm is barred for national security reasons Nokia executives expect to take market share from all the big competitors including Cisco and Juniper as well as Huawei “Whether its web-scale or vertical markets (such as banks transportation energy and public sector) where we have been less exposed in routers clearly we will gain share” Nokia Chief Executive Rajeev Suri told Reuters in an interview “This gives us momentum in core routing” Simon Leopold a financial analyst with Raymond James said Juniper which depends for around a quarter of sales from web-scale customers such as Facebook could be hardest hit “There is at least headline risk to Juniper once Nokia ships” he said Shares of Juniper Networks fell 24 per

spurts of violence an immigrant dealing with an imprisonment of sorts the distance from home – in Dheepan director Jacques Audiard delves into many of the motifs and themes from his previous films like A Prophet In the film Dheepan (Antonythasan Jesuthasan) whose life is ravaged by the civil war in Sri Lanka travels with his family with a fake passport to Paris But things seem a bit off – there is some sort of a void in the relationship with his wife and daughter On the brink of poverty Dheepan sells glowy toys on the streets and eventually both husband and wife gets jobs as caretakers in a very rough Parisian underbelly A still from Dheepan Image from Facebook This is where Dheepan is an important film: with the current immigration crisis in Europe it asks a lot of questions that urgently need to be answered Is it really a positive movement for a country to let refugees in What is the cost of a noble humanitarian effort in the grander scheme of things How secure is the future of your country if the immigrants bring their own culture into it How accepting are you of such a change and how accepting are they if you ask them to change their ways And even if the immigrants cause trouble how different are they from the local homebred criminals really And how does one solve all these problems with the economy directly related to the consequences of these problems Audiard doesn’t really get into a deep philosophical discussion as much as a poetic one The camera silently follows Dheepan as he winds his way through life struggling to deal with his traumatic past maintaining a violent secret and living a lie just to stay in safe Even living in the ghettos of a first world country is better than staying in a palace of a third world infested with war Or is it A simple act of violence can trigger the traumatic memory of anyone who has been brought up in violence Through Dheepan’s ravaged face Audiard captures the yearning for peace and family life simple pleasures any human deserves but is hardly ever offered As is the case with Audiard’s films the imagery is powerful There is an exquisite scene earlier in the film where strange neon symbols glow in the dark like fireflies in silence and Dheepan emerges from the darkness wearing glowing trinkets that he hawks on the street Later a sex scene fades in an out like a brush strokes on canvas The film’s atmosphere is elevated by French electronic boss Nicolas Jaar whose music incorporates Indian instruments to fantastic effect Good luck keeping your eyes dry when Dheepan builds a little paper window which when opened shows a photo of his wife and kids There’s a bit of comedic relief too – the quintessential nod of the head that Indians do to signal either a yes or a no is made fun of The little bit of happiness that the characters experience feels earned and it’s incredible that you connect with them so deeply even though they don’t say much Jesuthasan hasn’t had much acting experience but thanks to Audiard’s direction you’ll never believe it Much like Dheepan Jesuthasan himself was an LTTE target who fled Sri Lanka and immigrated to Paris to start a new life The fact that most of Dheepan’s life and journey was based on the very guy playing the character makes the film all the more mesmerizing Kalieaswari Srinivasan a theater actress from Chennai renders a more powerful performance as Dheepan’s wife Yalini who isn’t happy with their new home and wants to head over to London to stay with her cousin The big secret between Dheepan and Yalini isn’t mined much for conflict but the little bit of drama that is caused by it is fascinating In the final twenty minutes the film takes a more bombastic and populist turn although it’s a requisite little twist for a genuine crowd pleaser The film won the top award at Cannes and audiences who can watch it at the Mumbai Film Festival should consider themselves lucky Watch Dheepan during JioMAMI Mumbai Film
