Editor’s note: In Costa Rica, any party who feels they have been the subject of incorrect or false information in a news publication has a legal right of reply. The following is a right of reply to the Op-Ed piece, “Araya’s downward spiral continues with latest ‘travel-gate,’” by political columnist Gary Lehring, published on April 3.I do not usually respond to articles or comments that are based on incorrect assumptions or inaccurate data. Freedom of speech allows individuals to speak their mind even though their analysis might be erroneously supported. After all, as the saying goes “anything and everything can be said on paper.”However, this time I will make an exception. I am motivated by the fact that the author of the comment is Gary Lehring, a professor of government at Smith College, in Massachusetts, a U.S. state that welcomed me as a student at Harvard University. Quite likely, we are both followers of the Red Sox and the Celtics, so my answer is motivated more by academic – not political – reasons.The professor wonders why, as Mr. Johnny Araya’s campaign manager, I did not fulfill my duty as a law-abiding citizen to prohibit Mr. Araya’s trip on a private plane to Panama. He implies that I breached the scope of Article 128 of the Costa Rican Electoral Code.Allow me to clarify the following, professor Lehring: As determined by Article 127 of the same code, Article 128 only applies to “registered candidates.” Partido Liberación Nacional’s Electoral Tribunal officially registered Mr. Araya’s candidacy in March 13th of 2013. That means that at the time of the Panama trip, the use of this private plane cannot be considered a campaign donation under Costa Rican law. No electoral norm was violated.Additionally, in regards to my participation in this trip, professor Lehring should learn that as a businessman I have been doing business with the owner of the plane for over 23 years. We have been colleagues in the banana business, as well as personal friends. Thus, from an ethical point of view, there was no impediment for me to ride in his plane. I have not occupied a single public office in 20 years and my livelihood comes from my business activities.I am open to explaining to professor Lehring how private contributions are regulated in our legal system. We can even visit the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (Costa Rican TSE) together, where they can give him a detailed explanation of how the system works. I am even open to going out for coffee with the professor to teach him about Costa Rican politics.And to conclude, a final comment: The regime of criminal liability for what is said in the press (e.g. slander) is quite different in our judicial system compared to the U.S. system. My recommendation to Mr. Lehring is that he should learn more about the Costa Rican law system to avoid getting into any legal problems during his time in our country. This way he can enjoy the rest of his sabbatical in Costa Rica and have a happy and safe trip back to Massachusetts.

Norwegian Cruise Line unveils ‘Feel Free’ brand campaignNorwegian Cruise Line has revealed the company’s new global brand campaign, “Feel Free.” Rooted in the line’s fundamentals of freedom & flexibility, Feel Free is an invitation for guests to experience Norwegian’s philosophy of what a vacation should be, free from rigid schedules with the freedom to make their vacation their own.The integrated campaign, launched January 4, is inclusive of national television spots, online video, digital units, and various social media activations. One social media initiative encourages usage of the campaign’s #FeelFree hashtag by asking consumers to share their New Year’s resolutions for a chance to win a 7-day cruise with Norwegian. The high-energy campaign conveys the brand’s passion for delivering outstanding vacation experiences and showcases Norwegian’s fun-loving, bold personality. It further provides an opportunity to speak to guests in new markets via new formats, including various social platforms. The new campaign was created and developed with partner agencies BBDO Atlanta and OMD.“The concept of ‘Feel Free’ transcends the idea of traditional cruising and speaks to the experience that is uniquely offered and delivered aboard Norwegian ships: our promise that guests should be free to vacation on their terms,” said Meg Lee, Norwegian Cruise Line’s senior vice-president and chief marketing officer.The launch of “Feel Free” works hand-in-hand to communicate Norwegian’s new promotional offer Free at Sea. Norwegian’s Free at Sea promotional offer allows guests to choose from four free offers: free unlimited beverages, free specialty dining, free shore excursions or free wifi, delivering a very high value for their vacation dollar.

that I shot as a convict on the sets in Karjatwe would work all day from 7 am till midnight and would take only a 45-minute break for meals This periodI feelwas not enough for me to disconnect from the character and it eventually took its toll on me I realised I didnt talk to my family or crew unless I needed to Finallymy mom too noticed the change and came to meet me on the sets It took a vacation for me to recover Were you apprehensive of doing the nude scenes One does think of family before consenting to something like this And other than the on-screen impactone also wonders whether

General Assembly (UNGA) on Monday where she is expected to lead India’s attack on Pakistan and seek global support to dub it a "terror state" following the Uri terror attack that killed 18 soldiers Taking a cue from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first public speech post the 18 September Uri attack on Saturday where he openly warned Pakistan of isolating it internationally the External Affairs Minister is likely to take a tough stance and is likely to be blunt vis-a-vis the western neighbour File photo of India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj AP "Leading India’s delegation to the 71st UNGA EAM @SushmaSwaraj arrives in New York" External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said in a tweet Modi on Saturday said India will totally isolate Pakistan in the international arena for "exporting terror" Earlier this week while responding to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s tirade against India under right to reply the Indian diplomatic mission at the UN was also

India’s much-awaited address at the United Nations General Assembly is scheduled later on Monday with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj expected to focus on the recent terror attack at Uri in

isolating you We will force you to be left alone in the world That day is not far when people of Pakistan will take to streets to fight against the rulers and fight terrorism" Modi had said Sushma Swaraj is also expected to give a befitting reply to an earlier address at the UNGA by Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Under the UNGA’s right to reply after Sharif’s address the Indian diplomatic

being guilty of war crimes for sponsoring terrorism as an instrument of state policy and ridiculed the country as the centre for terrorism education Sushma’s tone during her address to the UNGA on Monday is also likely to be equally tough and blunt diplomats said Written by Shahid Amin | Published: January 21 2017 2:10 am Mumbai typewriter repair-woman Asha Velankar (Courtesy: Chirodeep Chaudhuri) Top News Name:With Great Truth and Regard: the Story of the Typewriter in India Authour: Sidharth Bhatia (ed) and Chirodeep Chaudhuri Publisher; Godrej/Roli Books Pages: 304 Price: Rs 2500 “Made to drink water from pipes suffer words that are typed ailing we all are from runs and sore eyes; what else to do but cry out to Curzon Viceroy” (harbinger of such changes in everyday life): ‘Lafz padhna pada hai type ke pani peena pada hai pipe ka; pet chalta hain ankh aayi hai Lat Curzon ki duhaai hai’ So wrote Akbar Allahabadi the great satirist of modernity at the beginning of the 20th century Half a century later VS Naipaul grandson of a UP peasant who had labored hard and then settled in the sugar colony of Trinidad found his long-dreamt-of vocation in a “BBC room in London” punching out his first sentence: ‘Sitting at … an old BBC typewriter with something like a monkey crouch’ (Finding the Centre) Among resident Indians RK Narayan and Ruskin Bond let their fingers flit over the keyboard producing reams of measured creativity Bond is quoted here: “I have to be very careful and not make too many mistakes The typewriter forces you to pay attention” It is of a piece that when the letter B fell off Bond’s first baby portable typewriter he “continued typing his stories without the letter B and then filling them in by hand” One of the great joys of this beautifully illustrated book is the way it goes about painting endearing pictures of the Indians who have wielded this instrument from street typists of Ahmedabad to hacks outside the courts who can punch a legally tenable foolscap affidavit for all times and seasons There are thumbnail sketches of Maharukh Calagopi dispensing chemist of Dhobi Talao who still types 300-odd homeopathic medicine bottle labels on her battered Olympia typewriter; the octogenarian Vasudev Barve of Vile Parle who has been teaching touch typing for 30 years he claims in just 25 minutes Capping it all is the story of Bhide of Dadar who after failing to get into the famed JJ School of Arts took to typing portraits on his machine It takes Bhide six to seven hours – Dilip Kumar was most difficult to type-etch “because he had so much hair” A full page is devoted to a photograph of the touch-artist displaying his sketches strewn around his instrument with Mario Miranda himself signing his reworked cartoons with the line: “I think you have a wonderful touch Mr Bhide” The story of the typewriter in India is told through such lives spent behind the letter machine: the punctilious high caste male office workers of Chennai and Kolkata who could churn out word-perfect typed sheets at great speed not to forget the rocketing careers of typists turned politicos like RK Dhawan Indira Gandhi’s steno who now sits at the Congress Working Committee’s high table Compared to the US and UK women in India were slow to join the typing labour force The initial domination of this field by Eurasian Anglo-Indian and Goan women gave rise by the Sixties to the entry of the “twice born” sometimes necessitating separate office canteens for male and female typists By the late 1970s the unisex neighbourhood typing school “became a rendezvous point… we would hang out for five to 10 minutes after class” says one Feroz Ahmad of the early 1980s untainted by the spectre of ‘love jihad’ Strung together with such small histories the framing narrative of this book is the slow growth and eventual success of the business house of Godrej which stood up to the challenging task of assembling an India-made typewriter If machine-tooling over 12000 metal moving parts was no mean feat for its time facing up to the marketing might of American company Remington which had its own plant in India was an even more daunting task Within a decade after Independence an Indian-assembled machine the M-9 pointedly named ‘The All Indian Typewriter’ was presented to the then Prime Minister at the 1957 session of the All India Congress The book presents a canonical photograph of Nehru in his immaculate sherwani stooping over the “All Indian” poised to strike the keys with all ten fingers This was at the Avadi session of the Congress which pledged to build a “socialistic pattern of society” in the country Next year at the brand new Industrial Fair Ground – the Pragati Maidan of today – President Rajendra Prasad was shown a similar typewriter with a larger roller tailored for tabulation The paper sticking out of the machine bore the confidence-boosting phrase ‘India Can Make it’ artistically typed out in large italics

being substituted against Spain when he refused a handshake from coach Giampiero Ventura The Italian football federation (FIGC) said in a statement that the 31-year-old had been excluded from the squad which will travel to Skopje to face Macedonia in their Group G World Cup qualifier on Sunday Pelle who has already apologised for his tantrum was taken off on the hour after an ineffective display in the World Cup qualifier which ended in a 1-1 draw on Thursday “The coach in agreement with the FIGC has decided to exclude Graziano Pelle… for disrespectful behaviour when he was substituted” the FIGC said “To be part of the national team involves the sharing of values which are worthy of the national team starting with respect towards the staff team mates and fans” Ventura had initially appeared to play down the incident even before the former Southampton player who is now based with Chinese club Shandong Luneng had apologised “Pelle was angry I think this was not so much because of the substitution as the way we had played up to that point” he said after the game “It’s part of football it’s something I’ve seen many times in my career But when you wear the Italy shirt you need to be careful” Pelle admitted on Instragram that he had “messed things up” “It was unacceptable behaviour firstly against the coach and also towards my team mates who have always shown me to have important values in this fantastic Italy group we belong to “Like any great mistake I accept the consequences And it is only right that I take responsibility I must ask offer my apologies from my heart to everyone” Veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was also prepared to forgive and forget he said before Pelle was excluded “He’s a great guy and in the cold light of day I’m sure he will

The emphasis is on self-governmentnot on water supply and drainage It should also be mentioned that this proviso was absent in the bill introduced in Lok Sabha in September 1991 and it was not an issue for consideration for the JPC The proviso was introduced as a government amendment only after the bill was received from the JPC in July 1992 and a most important purpose of the 74th Amendmentthat of creating constitutionally mandated municipal bodies of self-governance for all urban areaswas sidetracked According to Census 2011there are 7935 urban places Of these4041 are clothed in the garb of a corporationmunicipality or nagar panchayat The remaining 3894 are only census townswhich have to remain content with that statistical certification The list of such census towns

townships and gated coloniesincluding SEZsmust be placed under the jurisdiction of a local bodythough they may have some autonomy for provision of infrastructure and services and collection of user charges In October 2007the government formally accepted this recommendation Howeverthe Union and state governments have been quite eager to seize every opportunity to exclude territories from municipal administration The proviso to Article 243Q is not a mere loophole The message it conveys is that a democratic dispensation is not compatible with developmentin cynical disregard of the principal intent of the amendmentwhich is local self-government Much has been written about the functional and financial domain of urban local bodies The 11th12th and 13th Finance Commissions have all urged clarity and enhancement of financial resourcesincluding an independent tax domain Both the MN Venkatachaliah and Moily commissions have urged mandatory functions The 12th Schedulewhich is no more than a list of 18 subjectshas become an embarrassmentbecause the general perception is that municipalities and corporations are mandated to perform most functions relating to these subjects But the reality is that few tasks under these subjects have been entrusted to the municipalities As for public participationthe 74th Amendment contains a stipulation for ward committees In pursuing the arithmetic parallel of numerical representationas in panchayatsthe diversity and complexities of different urban areas have not been adequately considered Resisted by the states as an incursion into their powers and resented by elected representatives as undermining their domainward committees exist in a few states like Kerala and West Bengalbut hardly function The amendment also included provisions for a district planning committee under Article 243ZD to secure development planning for the districtaddressing both rural and urban concerns Similarlyunder Article 243ZEa committee for metropolitan planning is required to be set up for each multi-municipal metropolitan area with a population of 10 lakh or more Unfortunatelythe composition of the two committees heavily favours
