Related News Andy Murray should focus on regaining full fitness rather than rushing to be ready for the US Open Boris Becker said on Wednesday after the world number one was beaten in the Wimbledon quarter-finals by Sam Querrey Murray’s hopes of becoming the first Briton to retain a grand slam title since Fred Perry in 1936 were shredded as he hobbled helplessly to a 3-6 6-4 6-7(4) 6-1 6-1 defeat While Murray said his hip injury was not to blame for his exit three-time Wimbledon champion Becker told the BBC the Briton’s movement was clearly affected “He has got to think long term not worry about making the US Open – if he is moving there like he did at Wimbledon then he won’t win it anyway” the German said “His ranking should not be a concern either Again he will not defend it if he is not healthy so he should just forget it He has been there and done it and he does not have to prove anything anymore that he is good enough to be number one” Becker said he understood why Murray would have played at Wimbledon even if he was not 100 percent fit “I understand why Andy played Wimbledon because it is his number one tournament every year and he was also the defending champion He was desperate to make it work” added Becker who won six grand slam titles “I was always the same In hindsight I should not have played some of my matches but in the heat of the moment I always wanted to play the next round or the next event… But you run the risk of doing yourself more serious damage if you play on Becker said Murray should take some time to evaluate his fitness “Andy is now at the point where he needs to be really honest with himself because if he can’t run he can’t play “I credit him for not wanting to use the hip injury as an excuse for his defeat but he needs to get a couple of opinions from doctors before he thinks about coming back” The US Open the final grand slam of the year begins on Aug 28 For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related

India was a living contradiction to the idea of Pakistan But the same did not hold true for us Illustration: C R Sasikumar Top News On August 15 2016 young men raced through the streets of Delhi (and no doubt many other parts of the country) on motorcycles in trucks cars and auto rickshaws waving gigantic versions of the national flag and shouting “Bharat mata ki jai” On the same day Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave his Independence Day address from the Red Fort and the most memorable and consequential part of his speech it now seems was his reference to Balochistan The aftermath has become a discussion and criticism of Pakistan and “our” policy towards “them” rather than a celebration and assessment of India For those of us who belong to the group described as India’s young a question arises Did Pakistan always play such a dominant role in how we defined ourselves as a nation What do we stand for when we wave our flag and shout slogans on the street India has certainly cast a long shadow in Pakistan and that is understandable Since Jinnah’s death in 1948 there was a steady de-secularisation and militarisation of Pakistan’s politics both of which came together during General Zia-ul-Haq’s dictatorship As a secular democratic and diverse nation India was a living contradiction to the idea of Pakistan But the same did not hold true for us India is not a Hindu country and we never defined ourselves in opposition to the neighbour India’s freedom was a separation from the British Empire not from Pakistan And from what one can make out from the history books Pakistan was never as integral to how we defined ourselves as it seems to be now Despite the bitterness of Partition and the battles over Kashmir Nehru’s imagination of India was more focused on bringing in a liberal European modernity under the aegis of a benevolent paternal state Big dams public universities and state-led industrialisation were accompanied by a suspicion of the west (we were recently free of a predatory colonial power) and the desire for self-sufficiency Pakistan while certainly important didn’t stand a chance against the larger project of “nation-building” Even for Lal Bahadur Shastri who found himself in charge of a country at war with Pakistan the slogan was “jai jawan jai kisan” The farmer at a time of food shortages got equal billing to the soldier Indira Gandhi won a war with Pakistan but the rationale for the conflict was a moral one — the liberation of Bangladesh And the slogan that cemented her as a mass leader was “garibi hatao” As time went on and Indira tried to become India our insecurities grew But in a Cold War world the “foreign hand” was usually a reference to the United States and its allies not Pakistan Jayaprakash Narayan and Ram Manohar Lohia were at the forefront of articulating struggles for dignity identity and they rallied the voices of the first generation of students to have come of age after Independence Their successors still count on the political loyalty of the social groups that were politicised during that time Pakistan except perhaps during times of war when jingoism is at its peak was relatively peripheral to our nationalism Now though as India is well into senior citizenship things seem to have changed The heroes of our freedom struggle are no longer deified; we constantly question their legacy We are no longer insecure about the West In fact we want them to come and Make in India The farmer seems to enter the public imagination only when he commits suicide Lofty ideals don’t stand a chance against the joys of a globalised world and a liberalised economy — whether it comes to consuming entertainment from around the world or simply buying our way to bliss We can only look at the romantic idealism socialism and liberalism of the past through a sepia-tinted Instagram filter and marvel at its black-and-whiteness in a high-definition world Now religion seems to play a greater role in politics and cross-border terrorism is having an understandable impact on our relations with our neighbour When we wave a flag our identity seems to be built in large part around the easiest kind of nationalism — in juxtaposition to an enemy When you meet Pakistanis there is no strangeness only familiarity For north Indians in particular there isn’t even a language barrier Their television shows are better than ours and actors like Fawad Khan can easily become sex symbols without being accused of love jihad Perhaps that’s what we should choose to celebrate instead of blaming politicians for our troubles After all it’s easy almost a cliché to blame the political class for the bitterness with which we see our neighbours or the lack of an inspiring vision of India for the youth And yet the young flag-waving motorcycle-riders I saw on Independence Day weren’t just shouting “patriotic” slogans Their expressions of love for their country were peppered with chants of “Pakistan murdabad” While so many of the rest of us were sitting at home (myself included) buying some really great swag on Amazon Perhaps both of us the “patriots” and the consumers are part of what the flag stands for today
