Related News Out of the trenches of the First World War an altered language emerged English still bears the scars of the war in words that entered its vocabulary at the time On the centenary of the war the Oxford English Dictionary has appealed to the public to help trace when certain words were first used A soldier’s letter home a long-forgotten journal could reveal the birth of a word The First World War with its staggering death toll and its use of technology meant a violent rupture from the past So much was new about the conflict that new words had to be found to speak of it and of the grim modernity that it brought in Soldiers suffered from “shell shock” and wore “camouflage” The trenches gave rise to a whole register of experience — people could now go “over the top” wear “trench coats” or talk about “salient” points There are other ways in which the war changed language People from various social classes and from different countries were thrown together in the army So words used by one group — for instance “chum” a favourite of the criminal underworld or “bloke” a working-class word for gentleman — entered wider usage Foreign words became part of English including those used by Indian soldiers “Blighty” meaning Britain which came from the Hindi “bilati” and “cushy” a derivative of “khushi” It helped that the war was fought largely by a citizen army which disbanded and took the new language home Sadly it was not the last war to leave its mark on English The 20th century would see the legacy of several others Most recently the Iraq war saw a collection of acronyms enter various dictionaries — UAVs WMDs IEDs Language suddenly became more coded and complex; it also included many more words for violence and torture Long after a conflict is done these

indianexpresscom on how he finds the criticism surprising and scary at the same time Related News Often criticised for his work author Chetan Bhagat courted yet another controversy when Delhi University and announced his book Five Point Someone would be included in the syllabus for undergraduate students The university’s English department has included the novel in the syllabus for the paper “Popular Fiction” offered as an elective to students of honours courses other than English The announcement invited a lot of flak from various sections with a section of teachers questioning the academic merit of the decision Bhagat however finds the criticism surprising and scary at the same time The author while talking to indianexpresscom said that the negative response stems from people’s disregard for popular fiction “I am just surprised Firstly I am honoured It’s a course on popular fiction It has been included in that course not in world’s best books So if it’s a course on popular fiction will you put the most popular writer in India or not If you are doing a course on popular cinema will you watch Salman Khan’s films or not Or will you say no I will not watch Salman Khan’s films And that is where the lack of understanding of what is going on and how literature is divided into different branches There’s classics popular fiction That scares me” The writer added that many times “literature experts” have killed the aspirations of those who wanted to write popular fiction “These are people who claim to be experts in literature but they don’t understand the difference and how many writers they have killed in class who wanted to write popular fiction but they were told ‘No you can’t talk like this only talk about classics’ This is a bit scary that this is what they have done” he said Besides this Bhagat also finds himself at the centre of another row — he has been accused of plagiarism Writer Anvita Bajpai has claimed that “characters places and emotional flow” of Bhagat’s latest book One Indian Girl have been lifted from one of her books Life Odds and Ends a copy of which she had reportedly gifted to the author during Bengaluru Literature Festival in 2014 She has filed a lawsuit in a Bengaluru court which has granted temporary injunction restraining sales of One Indian Girl Calling her allegations “nonsensical” Bhagat said that such incidents set wrong precedents in cases of plagiarism “It’s really unfortunate A lot of legal experts have written articles calling it a bogus case I personally haven’t read the book but my legal team has prepared the responses and she is putting some nonsensical allegations like there is Facebook in my book and her book She has taken a court route for it so even we have to She has chosen a time when court goes on vacation So we have to wait It is sad because of tomorrow there will be a genuine case of plagiarism and people will look at it with suspicion Firstly I will never do it That’s not me” Taking the thought forward he says “And secondly it will be a stupid thing to do to take her published work and copy it Considering I utter one tweet and get attacked imagine if I dared to copy something It is nonsensical People are writing in my support It is a bogus case We will take her to task” he said But while the book is facing a roadblock this doesn’t seem to stop the author from having bigger aspirations for it When asked if he has any plan to turn One Indian Girl into a film Bhagat said “Maybe But I will figure out…” It has become a ritual of sorts that as soon as Bhagat’s novel hits the shelves the discussion sparks about making into a film Five of his seven books have had their film adaptations In fact critics say that Bhagat writes for the movies The author of course begs to differ “No I just write a story I like There’s no pressure because if there are some changes to be made (when a book is adapted into a movie) they will be done But I don’t write stories tailor-made for films Maybe my style of writing is film like that’s why (people say this) Like I wrote One Indian Girl I didn’t write keeping in mind which actress can play it I wrote it because I wanted to” But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have names in mind who he think can play the protagonist in this novel if it is made into a movie “A lot of girls can do justice to the character But I wouldn’t like to take any name I will leave that to the director” Also read:Justin Bieber is coming to India and Shraddha Kapoor tells you how to win aticket Currently the writer is geared up for the release of Half

remarks of Ghulam Nabi Azad senior Congressman and leader of the opposition in the Rajya Sabha allegedly equating the IS with the RSS is telling At a gathering of Muslim scholars at the National Integration Conference organised by the Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind last week on Saturday Azad reportedly said: “We have seen that among Muslims too those who have become the reason for death and destruction in Muslim countries… We are opposed to organisations like IS as much as we are opposed to the RSS” Subsequently there has been a squall in Parliament over the remarks the BJP has demanded an apology and Azad has waved a CD of the speech in response He has suggested that he has been quoted out of context that the point he was making was about the need to challenge all forms of sectarianism and fundamentalism The BJP-RSS are not assuaged but that is not the reason why this is a telling controversy It is so rather for what Azad’s remarks reveal about the fight the Congress puts up — or fails to put up — against the BJP-RSS Azad’s undeniable bracketing of the RSS and the IS the Sangh Parivar’s ideological anchor with one of the world’s deadliest terrorist organisations shows an obvious lack of judgement and discrimination — and worse It also holds up a mirror to the Congress’s persisting cluelessness in framing a political strategy to take on the RSS or the BJP that is not dependent on mere rote name-calling Be it the long-running secularism versus communalism debate or the latest opposition promoted by the BJP-RSS in the wake of the JNU episode — nationalism versus anti-nationalism — the Congress’s projection of itself as the alternative is hobbled by its own record of incoherence and muddling-through on the important questions when it is not severely compromised by its me-too attempts to play the game by its opponent’s rules On secularism for instance its posturing is undermined by its serial abdications spectacular like Shah Bano or a more general incapacity to counter the language of communalism in places like Muzaffarnagar On JNU it has tied itself in knots opposing the “anti-nationalism” of sloganeering students while also appearing to challenge the state’s hounding of them For a party that has only 44 MPs in the Lok Sabha finding a voice that it can call its own one that is distinct from its political opponent is a serious

watching the sting operation on TV felt sick Hearing Sadhvi Rithambara (in Indore 1990) and Sadhvi Saraswati (at the Virat Hindu Sammelan last Sunday) call Muslims gaddaars I was filled with loathing From the lynch mobs of 1993 to the Bajrangis of 2002 to Dara Singh who killed Graham Staines and his little boys in 1999 to Yogi Adityanath declaring that if “they convert one Hindu girl we will convert hundreds of their girls” they have been proud Hindus deriving their inspiration from Hindu mythology harking back to a distorted version of history In their imagination they are the rishis and rajas of yore roaming the countryside to slay rakshasas and invaders Not for a moment can I say: “They are not Hindus” though I can say this is not the Hinduism most of us practise Why then are so many articulate and politically aware Muslims finding it difficult to say that the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) are Muslim “This is not Islam” has been repeated many times over the last few days as has “They are not Muslims” Indeed they are They derive their inspiration from Islam The picture of the gunmen released by their organisation has the kalima in the background The kalima is what you recite when you convert to Islam it is what you recite when you are about to die so that you go to jannat That’s why these gunmen made their targets recite it just before shooting them They were mindful of their religious duty How many times have we heard “Islam prohibits the killing of innocents; one innocent killed is the killing of humanity Hence these men cannot be Muslims” Isn’t this a convenient way of washing one’s hands off the reality that these killers belong to one’s faith Their version of Islam doesn’t gel with one’s own for whom Islam means peace and mercy That is fine But at least it should be acknowledged that for them the same religion means slaying the enemy mercilessly Accepting that doesn’t take away from Islam In fact it obliges one to counter their version of Islam with a different one Muslims who say that what was done in Peshawar was anti-Islamic and hence those who did it are not Muslims forget that the TTP may well declare them kaafirs “Jis Hindu ka khoon na khole khoon nahin woh paani hai (The Hindu whose blood doesn’t boil doesn’t have blood but water)” is a slogan coined by the RSS For them many of us are not Hindus at all But who has given them the right to say so The same applies to those who declare that the TTP are not Muslims Who is to define who is not a Hindu or a Muslim Many Indian Muslims were not even willing to believe that the Peshawar attack was the work of the Taliban Excuses like “tribals’’ or “bearded imposters” were being made till they were left with no choice after the TTP owned up to the killings Then there’s the other excuse: “Terrorism has no religion” It certainly does Sadhvi Pragya is a Hindu as are Colonel Purohit and Swami Aseemanand who are accused of terrorist acts against Muslims Hafiz Saeed and
