23rd minute with a 23-yard shot that beat goalkeeper Brad Guzan to the near post and Hector Herrera nearly put El Tri ahead in the 71st with a 30-yard free kick that rebounded off the crossbar With

January 10 2015 12:00 am Related News The Union cabinet has cleared the way for the auction in February of 5 MHz of spectrum (in each of 17 circles) in the 2100 MHz band which is used to provide 3G services At the same time spectrum in the 800 900 and 1800 MHz bands used for 2G services will also be auctioned Reportedly a much larger quantum of 3G spectrum — 15 MHz — will be up for offer by December But by staggering the auction of 3G spectrum the government seems to be creating artificial scarcity Indeed after the department of telecommunications clinched a long-awaited and much-needed spectrum swap with the defence ministry — the latter agreed to give up 15 MHz of 3G spectrum — it comes as a surprise that only 5MHz will be auctioned in February In fact the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) had earlier warned against holding an auction with insufficient spectrum Fierce bidding can be expected in the 900 and 2100 MHz bands But for a variety of reasons including insufficient contiguous spectrum needed to launch data services in most circles demand for 800 and 1800 MHz spectrum could be comparatively muted Most of the 900 MHz spectrum on the block is due to the expiry of 20-year-old licences So if operators whose licences are about to expire want to stay in business they would have to either win back their 900 MHz spectrum or replace it with 2100 MHz In such a situation an auction with artificially created scarcity could seriously upset the financial health of telcos Keeping this in mind Trai had suggested that the 900 MHz licences could be temporarily extended by levying a pro-rata charge Though the February auction is expected to raise Rs 100000 crore it would be shortsighted of the government to view spectrum auctions as only a means to generate revenue The government’s “Digital India” push for instance would be a non-starter without greater internet penetration which is significantly up to telcos to achieve — the fibre optic cable network is progressing at snail’s pace and in any case most Indian consumers have leapfrogged straight to mobile internet But financially depleted firms will neither be able to invest in their

(Source: Reuters photo) Related News The political class in Washington is consumed at the moment with parsing each clause in last week’s nuclear agreement with Iran for secret meanings hidden loopholes and possible portents That America would come to terms on a topic of such political and strategic sensitivity with a state long viewed with suspicion if not outright antagonism alarms some and angers others Questions of who snookered whom abound Sound familiar The July 14 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and the US-led P5+1 comes almost exactly 10 years after the 2005 civil nuclear accord between India and the US Like the 2005 agreement the Iran deal came together only after months of tough behind-the-scenes negotiations As with the earlier India-US accord it remained an open question up until the last moment whether an agreement between the two sides could be reached Share This Article Related Article There are of course fundamental differences between the two nuclear deals The 2005 pact was a bilateral affair whereas last week’s accord required painstaking negotiations between Washington and its partners (especially China and Russia) before anyone could even think about sitting down with Tehran Unlike the 2005 agreement which came as a complete surprise to nearly everyone in both India and the US the attention of the world’s media had been fixated for weeks on every unsubstantiated rumour coming out of Vienna the venue of the Iran-P5+1 talks It will be years before we know whether the agreement with Iran follows the precedent set by the India-US accord and opens the way for a fundamental transformation of US relations with Tehran Indians with ample reason to desire cordial ties with both countries should hope that it does Nicholas Burns a retired US diplomat who has worked as hard as anyone to build a substantial and substantive Indian-American partnership recently remarked that New Delhi and Washington are “aligned but not allied” That this observation is in both countries today regarded as unexceptional is the result of the 2005 agreement reached by then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and then President George W Bush The confluence of national interests suggested by Burns’s characterisation was not inevitable Indeed the history of India-US relations up to 2005 had been marked by acrimony and bitterness Only seven years earlier Washington had slapped far-reaching sanctions on India because of Delhi’s 1998 nuclear tests Singh and Bush had the vision to see beyond the recriminations of the past and imagine a different future For all the mistakes each made during his time in office their handiwork was transformative The odds that the 2015 nuclear agreement will have a similar impact on US-Iran relations are much longer That relationship is burdened with still-raw memories on both sides that may not yet be ready to heal For most Americans Iran’s sponsorship of groups and activities associated with terrorism in Lebanon Syria Yemen and elsewhere raises obstacles to better relations that extend well beyond the scope of one nuclear agreement Iranians have their own litany of complaints about US policies past and present The most immediate order of business is to ensure the successful implementation of the Iran agreement The US experience in dealing with the North Korean nuclear issue leads many (probably most) Americans to assume that Iran will try to cheat on last week’s pact At a minimum the different priorities of China Russia the US and the European parties to the accord will pose a huge challenge for maintaining a united front in the face of any suspected Iranian violations of the agreement America’s political dysfunction presents a challenge of a different sort Unlike the India-US agreement which enjoyed wide support from both US political parties the Iran accord is already the subject of intensely partisan debate in the US Republicans are virtually united in their conviction that this deal must be blocked Nor can President Barack Obama rely upon unbroken support from his fellow Democrats a number of whom appear prepared to break ranks with the White House over the agreement Most analysts expect Obama to eventually prevail over congressional efforts to defeat the accord Nonetheless the rhetoric from the pact’s critics will be over-the-top and American bickering may encourage those in Iran who seek to overturn the deal for their own reasons This will sound familiar to those who recall the heated debates in the US and especially India over the wisdom of modifying long-held principles in pursuit of a landmark nuclear accord India finally signed on to the nuclear partnership only after Singh barely escaped a no-confidence vote Events since 2005 have validated the hopes of the authors of the nuclear deal It hasn’t always been easy and it’s seldom been pretty Even today 10 years after Singh and Bush announced their historic breakthrough the nuclear accord has yet to provide one kilowatt of energy for India or one dollar of profit for US energy firms Even so the India-US civil nuclear accord proved a gamechanger for broader ties between Delhi and Washington A decade hence perhaps we will be able to describe the recently signed nuclear agreement with Iran in similar terms And if animosities as deep as those dividing America and Iran are capable of being bridged might not there be hope for the future of India-Pakistan relations as well Unfortunately many Pakistanis have concluded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is uninterested in improving ties with Islamabad Fairly or not they are watching for signs that Delhi intends to follow up Modi’s meeting with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Russia earlier this month with meaningful moves aimed at thawing the current frosty relationship between the two countries If the theocracy in Tehran can conclude a substantive deal with “the Great Satan” even as one side continues to accuse the other of systemic support for terrorism would it be too much to hope that India and Pakistan might yet find a mutually advantageous path to narrow the chasm that has separated these fraternal twins for so long
