penalty shootout with a 100 per cent conversion (Source: PTI) Related News England held their nerves to prevail over Japan 5-3 in a penalty shootout and set up a quarterfinal clash with USA in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Kolkata on Tuesday They may have had a jinx in the penalty shootout with the latest being their Euro U-17 final defeat to Spain earlier this year but the Steve Cooper team remained calm in front of a 53302 turnout as substitute Nya Kirby sealed the issue after their goalkeeper Curtis Anderson denied Hinata Kida This is their third quarterfinal and first since 2011 England sorely missed their leading goal scorer Jadon Sancho and the Young Lions who had pumped in 11 goals in the group stage failed to find the target to settle for a goal-less stalemate against an overly defensive Japan England showed character in the penalty shootout with a 100 per cent conversion beginning with Rhian Brewster who slotted it home with Japan goalkeeper Kosei Tani making a wrong dive They followed it up with Callum Hudson-Odoi Philip Foden and even goalkeeper Anderson finding the target Japan’s Yukihari Sugawara Taisei Miyashiro and Toichi Kozuki scored but Kida’s attempt was thwarted in a crucial breakthrough for England who failed to find the target despite a flurry of attacks in the regulation time England sorely missed their star attacking midfielder Sancho and the team struggled to get their formation right with Callum Hudson-Odoi or Philip Foden pressed into his position but without any fruitful result England will travel to USA for their round of eight clash in Goa on Sunday Japan were so defensive that their first corner came in the 63rd minute The match slowly picked up pace after both the teams looked tentative with their moves in the first 10 minutes In the absence of Sancho who has been recalled by his club Borussia Dortmund Foden occupied the attacking midfielder’s position in the right-wing Foden initiated the moves but they failed to finish and survived a couple of Japanese onslaught late in the first- half In the fourth minute Japan had the first attempt at the goal when Soichiro Kozuki’s right footed shot from the left side of the box was blocked by Curtis Anderson England had more than 60 per cent first-half possession but Yoshiro Moriyama employed a defensive strategy to thwart the attacks The best attack of the first-half came in the 27th minute when Foden put a through ball to Brewster whose thunder strike rattled the post The match picked up pace towards the half hour mark with Foden initiating moves from the right England continued their goal search even as Rhian Brewster and Angel Gomes missed back-to-back chances In fact the Cooper side went into the break under pressure with the Japanese attack stepping on the gas though the Young Lions defence held on to thwart attempts from Soichiro Kozuki and Keito Nakamura Their star forward Takefusa Kubo’s 69th minute powerful left-footed shot was brilliantly saved

Top News The Bharat Ratna India’s highest civilian award has of late got into unnecessary controversy whereas it should be a rare and signal honour above all disputation and discord In an ideal world the Bharat Ratna would be given to someone who is admired by everyone and whose choice does not depend on which political party is in power Is there such a person now Yes there is indisputably one and his name is Zubin Mehta The first Bharat Ratna was awarded in 1954 not to one but to three people C Rajagopalachari S Radhakrishnan and CV Raman This struck a nice balance — an independence fighter who was our last governor general (and the first Indian to hold that post); a philosopher-statesman; a scientist In the 62 years since the honour has been bestowed on 45 people which includes three non-Indians — Mother Teresa in 1980 (although she was an Indian citizen by then) Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan in 1987 and Nelson Mandela in 1990 A preponderance of these 45 awards have been given to politicians (as many as 23 of them) In one way this is not surprising since it is politicians who make the decisions: It’s not just that they want to reward themselves; it’s also that politicians think that their jobs are the country’s most important ones On the other hand the number of Bharat Ratnas in the field of art and culture is pitifully small — just six (Satyajit Ray MS Subbulakshmi Pandit Ravi Shankar Lata Mangeshkar Ustad Bismillah Khan and Pandit Bhimsen Joshi) All six are names beyond the slightest dispute; you might wish there were more than just these six names but you wouldn’t want other names instead of these Zubin Mehta’s name would be a wonderful — and fully deserving — addition to this list On April 29 he turned 80 but in his case age is truly just a number After three quick concerts in Mumbai with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra recently he jetted off to Vienna where he will conduct the Vienna Philharmonic for a series of concerts The list goes on and needless to say all concerts everywhere are sold out in advance In Mumbai people queue up all night whenever Mehta brings an orchestra here and the demand for seats is such that the organisers have to impose a limit of just two tickets per person Illustration by C R Sasikumar Mehta’s achievements are truly staggering First of all he has reached the pinnacle in a field which is fiercely competitive throughout the developed world and has stayed there for an incredibly long time Beginning as assistant conductor with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in 1958 when he was just 22 his career really took off in 1961 when he was appointed music director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra A year later he became music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic concurrently becoming at 26 not only the youngest conductor of an international orchestra but also the youngest ever to be in charge of two international orchestras This would have been an astonishing achievement for anyone but for an Indian it is almost unreal because Western classical music has such a small foothold in our country The achievement is even more astonishing when you consider that his fame rests not on being a soloist which would be considerable in itself but on being a conductor who is the leader of musicians who at this level are all excellent soloists themselves Amazingly Mehta has been doing this non-stop for 58 years A music director of course goes beyond conducting a concert: During his tenure he shapes the sound of the orchestra selects musicians draws up the programme of concerts for each season and thus becomes an arbiter of taste for the city and the community as well To have played this role for so many years in notoriously difficult and snobbish places like Los Angeles (16 years) New York (a record 13 years) Berlin and Vienna shows us the regard in which he is held in the music world The Israel Philharmonic went one further taking the unprecedented step of appointing him music director for life Six orchestras (Vienna Munich Los Angeles Florence Berlin Bavaria) bestowed the title of “Honorary Conductor” on him The scale of Mehta’s achievement can be gauged by just a couple of numbers: With the New York and Israel orchestras he has conducted over 1000 and 3000 concerts respectively in all five continents Not content with these achievements Mehta has also been a great populariser in the best sense of the word He put together and conducted the first “Three Tenors” concert (Placido Domingo José Carreras Luciano Pavarotti) in 1990 following up with several repeats The recording of the debut concert became the best-selling classical album of all time A televised performance of the concert was seen by 13 billion people worldwide That’s an audience of truly epic proportions Mehta’s strong belief in the healing and unifying powers of music has also led him to arrange and conduct some unusual concerts For example he broke a taboo by playing Wagner in Israel (the composer was a vicious anti-Semite) and Mahler’s Second Symphony (Resurrection) next to the Buchenwald concentration camp using German and Jewish orchestras playing side by side Puccini’s Turandot was performed in Beijing in the surroundings of the Forbidden City with 300 extras and 300 soldiers participating In 2005 he brought the Bavarian State Orchestra to Chennai to commemorate the Indian Ocean tsunami and in 2013 to Ehsaas-e-Kashmir in Srinigar’s Mughal Gardens There have been many other such concerts — held either to break down man-made barriers or to heal old wounds In all this he has retained his strong ties with India Over the years he has brought the world’s best orchestras to perform here along with the greatest of soloists thus enabling Indian music lovers to hear music at its highest level By persuading these orchestras and soloists to forgo or reduce their fees he has also enabled the Mehli Mehta Music Foundation (named after his musician father) to run a school for music which now reaches out to nearly 2000 students half of them in low-income municipal schools What more is there to say There’s one final point: For all the adulation he has received all over the world for almost six decades Zubin Mehta remains a true son of the country of his birth and till today retains and uses his Indian passport Dharker is a writer and columnist For all the

second master cartoonist RKLaxman and Rajinder Puri had about as much in common as Pedder Road and Parliament Street But between them they represent a range of cartooning that would do any democracy proud Puri was the last of the trio that made Indian cartooning a robust editorial art He was completely self-taught unlike the other two Abu Abraham and OV Vijayan who were mentored by Shankar On a rare and rapidly reversed personal note he once said that “brother Rakshat was the artist in the family”; he himself was keener on tennis and wrestling The last is eminently believable and was in evidence in his cartoons and no less in the daily debate over the morning coffee a ritual that travelled over the decades from Embassy and Standard restaurants in Connaught Place to the India International Centre No one could have taught this fiercely independent mind anything He had his own way of figuring things out Last decade when Photoshop became the flavour of the newsroom he mastered the graphic software in his own unorthodox way which would have made a trained professional squirm But he chipped and chopped with “the blessed mouse” to tone colour and texture his drawings as passionately as a cub cartoonist Earlier over the years he had seamlessly transited from brush to dip-pen to throwaway markers through colour pencils and screen tints all along retaining his trademark style He insisted that impact mattered more than aesthetics Through such adventurist fits of retooling a lesser practitioner would have gone astray But the power-packed staccato style stayed and no less the combative tone This mix in its original form earned him his first big break in 1959 as staff cartoonist with the Hindustan Times edited by SMulgaonkar The 25-year-old had returned after a stint at The Glasgow Herald and The Guardian in London He’d later recall “the Fleet Street of Vicky and Searle” where postwar cartooning was beginning to grow out of the gentlemanly David Low mode The India Puri came back to was shedding the gentlemanly Nehruvian phase To begin with he was no Nehruvian more of a Lohia-ite who never pardoned the Congress for partitioning the country But when Panditji died he came out with a fitting tribute: the cartoon grid filled with human forms that framed a void in the middle shaped like Nehru’s face It was not blind fury all the way; the man loved Hollywood and Omkarnath Thakur and betrayed a certain slant for Sufism Of course with cartooning eyes wide open Little wonder then that Puri was among the few editorial commentators to foresee the Emergency of 1975 He had steadily antagonised PM Indira Gandhi through a series of cartoons that suggested a constitutional breakdown The lady complained about a particularly unsparing one to JRD Tata the chairman of The Statesman trust Tata merely told editor Kuldip Nayar to ask the cartoonist “to be a little less vicious in the future” Puri knew censors would have no such finesse under the Emergency which came soon enough He quit cartooning and became an activist who flirted with the Janata Party and BJP to mercifully return to his core mission: to critique the nation In fact beyond the nation His work had appeared across the length and breadth of the country — from The Indian Express to The Hindu and The Free Press Journal to The Statesman; that wasn’t enough His book Recovery of India is dedicated to the “young people of India Pakistan and Bangladesh” Barbed wire is a recurring motif in his work He wanted to cut across — to Karachi where he was born The writer is chief
