and how there is a need for “caution”.There is another personal tribute — to modernist architecture by Ram Rahman (Booth P10) He juxtaposes his photographs with his father Habib Rahman an architect Through his buildings the project looks at the trajectory of idealism in public building and where that legacy stands now The project ends with a father-son engagement with the Ayodhya Babri Masjid demolition – Habib Rahman’s public proposal to solve the conflict through an idealistic design proposal before the demolition and Ram’s post demolition broadside for SAHMAT Politics in Art An inevitable and a long-standing relationship between art and politics finds home yet again We find Baroda-based visual artist Priti Kahar’s Peace from her series called “Exit” at Palette Art Gallery (Booth A10) in the form of an electronic clock which is her interpretation of chaos destruction and violence that reigns before peace strikes It comprises the partially printed word “Peace” on the second hand and other half printed on the surface manifesting into the complete word when the hand meets the surface once every minute Sri Lankan artist Anoli Perera’s Elevated Utopias: Paradise Lost at Shrine Empire (Booth C8) recreates the notion of geographical boundaries by using paraphernalia of stitched fabric printed images and acrylic and ink on paper “Utopias are imagined and paradise is promised in the urge to transform and develop lands” she says in her note In the same booth Bangladeshi artist Tayeba Begum Lipi grapples with the politics of land in From 17 million mi2 To 55598 m2 a

cricket grounds — Chepauk in Chennai Eden Gardens in Kolkata the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore and Brabourne or later the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in the ’70s ’80s and ’90s a powerful memory would not just be the dashing strokeplay or a great spell of spin or seam bowling You would also recall the collective assault in the form of mind-numbing statistics after nearly every ball inflicted by hordes of cricket-obsessed fans around you It may be difficult to spot that breed of the knowledgeable shlf1314n fan in the melee of post-liberalisation cricket maniacs who wear their patriotism on their sleeves Try telling them to soak in the moment at the prettiest grounds in the world or at the county grounds in England and you will be marched off Yet over the last decade or more especially with the dominance of one-day cricket and its televised spread and the big money involved there has been far more data-crunching and minute-to-minute analysis of the game We now have data analysts travelling with teams and players acknowledging their contribution Cricket is perhaps one of the few sporting disciplines which lends itself to stats and comparative judgements of all kinds Prime ministers and central bank governors number among diehard cricket fans Former Bank of England chief Mervyn King described cricket as the ultimate game that crosses boundaries After leaving Threadneedle Street he made a trip to Mumbai to see the Brabourne Stadium He has good company in shlf1314n central bank governor Raghuram Rajan and sundry other shlf1314n netas Little surprise then if those who are into economic research and analysis or public finance also have a yen for applying statistical modelling to cricket as Surjit S Bhalla and his young co-contributor Ankur Choudhary have done With the World Cup underway the two have constructed models or as they call it an analytical framework to not only judge some of the greatest all-time players — bowlers batsmen and captains — but they have also used econometric models and other forms of rocket science to predict the outcome of games based on the batting and bowling strengths of teams So if you reckoned that Vivian Richards was the greatest ODI batsman of all time or Virender Sehwag was a bigger match-winner than AB De Villiers of South Africa or the flamboyant Kevin Pietersen of England does their new model capture it It fairly does when it comes to assessing the greatest captains and interestingly the best of those who perform under pressure But using statistical models to predict outcomes can be fraught Going by one of the indices used the authors fancied England as a leading team in this edition of the World Cup But the Pommies have been booted out We can’t quibble as they state in the book that their accuracy ratio is 65 per cent or so For an enlightened cricket lover an endorsement of their judgement of a player through these models may be heartening The predictability model should also be of interest perhaps to geeks and the big boys who are now pouring money into the game by buying league teams But the average shrieking Joe with patriotic tattoos may not be able to plough through regression analysis and Kalman filters It would have been wonderful to have had the thoughts of some of the more erudite players on these models But that’s for another day The book is an interesting offering by a contrarian and provocative writer But as CP Snow wrote in a foreword to GH Hardy’s A Mathematician’s Apology technique tactics and formal beauty were the deepest attractions of the game for him (Hardy) They are incommunicable unless one knows the language Snow wrote At the end of the day what lingers in the mind is formal beauty For all the latest Lifestyle News download shlf1314n Express
