with confidence before Sunday’s league opener at Deportivo La Coruna (Source: Reuters) Top News It’s been a long long time since Real Madrid felt this good going into the Spanish league season Madrid displaced Barcelona as the top team in Spain last season by winning the title for the first time in five years It also successfully defended its Champions League title to complete its first league-European Cup double since 1958 Add to that this week’s win over a Barcelona team that has been hard hit by the exit of Brazil striker Neymar and Madrid is bursting with confidence before Sunday’s league opener at Deportivo La Coruna Madrid dominated Barcelona 5-1 on aggregate to win the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday only eight days after dispensing with Manchester United 2-1 in the European Super Cup Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane however is trying to keep his players focused on the long haul toward next spring “There won’t be any euphoria because we know this will be long” Zidane said after Madrid’s 2-0 win over Barcelona in the second leg “This team is hungry and we will try to keep this going We know that it will not be easy but we are prepared to accept the challenge” Easily lost in the glitter from all the trophies is Zidane’s achievement of crafting a squad that is dangerous no matter who plays That depth was on full display in the curtain-raising super cups when Madrid outclassed its rival powerhouses with very little help from Cristiano Ronaldo Still regaining his peak fitness Ronaldo was a second-half substitute against United and in the first leg against Barcelona when he scored a goal before being sent off Marco Asensio a 21-year-old forward is also one to watch after his goals from distance against Barcelona Midfielders Francisco “Isco” Alarcon and Casemiro excelled against United with each scoring and Madrid has signed young reinforcements Theo Hernandez Dani Ceballos and Jesus Vallejo to cover the exits of Alvaro Morata James Rodriguez and Pepe The emergence of Asensio and Isco has even put into question the role of Gareth Bale who didn’t play Wednesday “I have a spectacular squad You don’t notice the changes (to the starting 11)” Zidane said “We can swap three or four players (in the lineup) and the team doesn’t change I won’t say we play better but we still play well so we are satisfied” The extra options will serve Madrid well as it starts the league without Ronaldo who is suspended for four matches after pushing the referee following his sending off at Camp Nou As Madrid has gotten stronger its challengers have gotten weaker Barcelona has been severely hampered by the exit of Neymar who left for Paris Saint-Germain after its Qatari owners paid the record sum of 222 million euros ($262 million) to trigger his release clause That has left Lionel Messi without his favorite partner and the club is struggling to spend its extra cash on players who can shore up a squad that is clearly a step or two behind Madrid So far the only post-Neymar signing is Paulinho a midfielder “We have to bounce back soon because the league is starting” Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said looking ahead to Sunday’s home match against Real Betis “We have to focus on the league ahead and keep going forward because that’s all we have” Atletico Madrid which has finished third for three straight years since winning the title in 2014 can’t sign new players until January because it broke FIFA rules regarding youth players So the club coached by Diego Simeone is a retread of the one that relied on 33-year-old Fernando

National Award winning singer Sukhwinder Singh says though he won many prestigious awards he values music directors more than just the trophies “My music directors are bigger awards for me than the trophy Winning award is a reward for me that comes with a great song I do not create them but music director does So for me they are my awards” Singh told IANS here in an interview The 62-year-old singer added: “Whether it is Filmfare Best Male Playback Award for ‘Chaiyaa Chaiyaa’ ‘Haule Haule’ National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer for ‘Bismil’ and ‘Jai ho’ all credit goes to music directors and composers They created such magic songs” “Jai Ho” is one of the songs composed by A R Rahman and sung by him that won an Oscar Though initially Singh and Rahman planned to perform together on the occasion it did not materialise Asked if there is any regret that he has for not performing at the Oscar ceremony he said “Yes there was a momentary upsetness but I am not carrying any baggage of bitterness In fact why should I Rahman launched me and gave me the opportunity to sing a song that has got so much mileage How could I ignore all that and just hold on to a small incident I

Bollywood and delivered hits like “Ruth Aa Gayee Re” “Ramta Jogi” “Main Albeli” ” Ghanana Ghanan” ” Mitwa” to name a few apart from the iconic “Chaiyaa Chaiyaa” and “Jai Ho” Singh says the best way to promote a song is by singing it well “The best way to promote a song is to sing it well Rest will fall in place I think new age singers are focusing on overall package so much that they are missing the core factor As a singer your focus should be on the song the best gift you can give to your music directors and listeners is a soulful rendition of the song that you have got to sing”he said Asked about new age singers he said: ‘I think there are some distinct voices are coming in and some female singers are amazing Sorry I am bad with names so I cannot take one” So what is the tip that he

Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Institute) Top News Inspired by moth eyes scientists have developed a new technology that manipulates surfaces to make them ‘invisible’ across a wider wavelength range Most lenses objectives eyeglass lenses and lasers come with an anti-reflective coating However this coating works optimally only within a narrow wavelength range Now scientists at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Germany have introduced an alternative technology Instead of coating a surface they manipulate the surface itself By comparison with conventional procedures this provides the desired anti-reflective effect across a wider wavelength range It largely increases the light transmittance through surfaces In the future the nanostructured surfaces may improve high-energy lasers as well as touch-screens and the output of solar modules researchers said They took a page out of the design book for moth cornea The corneas of these mostly nocturnal insects reflect almost no incoming light There is no glow of light bouncing off the moth’s eyes to betray their presence to potential predators Less reflected light also means that moths are able to use practically all the scarce night-time light to see This magic from the world of insects inspired scientists to try the same tactics for the design of optical components Like the corneas of moths the components must allow light to pass through while light reflection is of little use “The eye surface is densely covered with column-like structures They are only a few hundred nanometres high and taper conically towards the tip” physicist Zhaolu Diao said The columns look like regularly spaced stalagmites on a cavern floor As the light passes through this boundary layer its refractive index changes continuously starting from the ambient air to the materials of the outer moth eye layers This gradual refractive index change has the effect that the layer hardly reflects any of the incoming light To imitate the moth eye principle scientists developed a two-step process In the first step they deposited gold particles in a regular honeycomb pattern on a large surface In this pattern the gold particles settle in the points of crossroad In the second step the gold-studded crossroads serve as mask in a chemical etching process As a result no material is etched away underneath the gold-studded crossroads and the desired upright column-like structures remain The structured surfaces covered as much as two by two centimetres While this technique registered first successes in the past it has so far only worked for short wave UV radiation and visible light researchers said Until then the columns etched out of the surface were at most 500 nanometres high The columns are not high enough to reach the 995 per cent or higher light transmittance for the wavelengths in the near infrared light (NIR) range The group fine-tuned their procedures and found a way to increase the size of the deposited gold particles

her at a temple Her son got lost in a crowded street on one of her trips back to Mumbai though she cannot remember exactly how In fact Savita remembers little of her past life not even recognising her native Marathi But she has kept one resolve: “I don’t want to marry again” It has been 15 years now since Savita’s bipolar disorder was controlled but she remains with an institution for the mentally ill in Chennai Lakshmi Narasimhan of with The Banyan which works to rehabilitate patients of mental illnesses in Tamil Nadu Kerala and now in Maharashtra says Savita’s is a painfully common story “There is no exit from the mental healthcare system once a woman is treated” In response to a query under the Right to Information Act the Thane Mental Hospital says police picked up 324 mentally ill patients from public places and referred them to the Thane institution for treatment in 2016Tellingly 74 per cent of these or 241 were women In 2000 The Banyan traced Savita’s family to a slum in Wadala “My mother was a vegetable vendor and could not look after me She got me married But my husband left me in three months” she says in Tamil In the years that followed she travelled back to Mumbai but her husband had remarried “Her current status is normal psycho motor activity groomed hygienic and maintains eye contact” says NGO worker Mala Bagvathi When her treatment ended Savita’s

men getting accepted after returning home from hospitals for the mentally ill because they are often breadwinners “But a family is scared to accept a woman back” says Mohd Tarique director of Project Koshish “In beggars’ homes 60 per cent of the destitute are mentally ill and especially women” he adds In 2002 an unpublished report by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) said 55 per cent of women in four mental hospitals (in Thane Ratnagiri Pune and Nagpur) remained long-term inmates for over five years because they had no social psychological or financial support needed before they could be discharged TISS did the survey for the government but the follow-up action through policy interventions has been meagre Also Read Part III: Woman tuberculosis patients less likely to fail treatment but support from family often absent Of the 1949 mentally ill women surveyed 69 per cent were in the 19-45 years age group They had lost their most youthful and productive years in hospital At least 69 per cent of women inmates had families and yet 182 per cent had remained in hospital for five years or more while another 368 per cent had been there for over 10 years despite completing treatment Of 299 surveyed mentally ill women who were divorced or separated 55 per cent said their husbands left them after they were admitted to a mental hospital Another 32 per cent were unmarried Also 617 per cent of the women in the four state-run mental hospitals suffered from other health problems mainly gynaecological issues The findings showed pointed harsh discrimination against women with mental health problems but little came of it “The report was prepared in 2002 but nothing has changed in 15 years” says TISS professor Shubhada Maitra author of the study The report made important recommendations on women’s hostels and residential institutions for women discharged from hospitals called for micro-credit programmes and vocational training for such women and for increased collaboration with NGOs to empower mentally ill women Following the report the state government installed mirrors and lockers in mental hospitals started vocational training programmes but rehabilitation remains a pipe dream “Funding is a huge problem” says a senior officer at the Directorate of Health Services In 2016-17 Maharashtra’s budget for mental health was 15 per cent of the total public health budget Of the Rs 1217 crore released for mental health expenditure was Rs 973 crore or 80 per cent In 2017-18 the budget has been cut down to Rs 1125 crore The National Mental Health Programme functions in only 16 of the state’s 36 districts In 2011 TISS started NGO Tarasha to spend Rs 800 per women per month for psycho-social counselling livelihood to place them in a working women’s hostel and help them find a job “When a patient comes out of hospital she does not even have a name They say ‘Sumitra Not Known’ (for example) meaning the hospital named them and the family was not traced” says Professor Maitra In five years 15 women from the Thane Mental Hospital were reintegrated with society skill trained and placed in companies in the hospitality retail printing technology and housekeeping sectors The NGO keeps in regular touch with the women for medical examinations Though they want to expand it to include more mental hospitals a fund crunch since 2015 has hampered the programme says Maitra According to sections 18 and 19 of the Mental Healthcare Act 2017 shelter homes and rehabilitation of patients are mandated for every district to be run by the state government Sections 30 and 31 deal with sensitisation of the police who usually are the first point of contact But Maharashtra is yet to take up implementation “But what we also need is
