underclothes saying his prayers under his breath after his bath My sister and I could barely contain our giggles but also our sheer wonder at his immovable faith Religion for me also meant the peace

finishing line at Annapolis on June 25 he became the first Indian to complete the arduous Race Across America (RAAM) one of the toughest ultramarathon bicycle races in the world The aviation medicine expert with the Indian Army was followed two hours later by another Indian doctor Amit Govind Samarth 37 from Nagpur Gokulnath clocked 11 days 18 hours and 45 mins while Samarth clocked 11 days 21 hours 11 minutes to complete the 3150 miles (5070 km) race from San Diego to Annapolis Only 268 people (230 men) have achieved the feat till date Samarth ran his race on the first attempt “I had two dreams in life to be completed before I turned 40 One was to do the Leh-Kanyakumari cycling expedition and the other was RAAM I did the first one in 2014 setting a national record of 15 days and 14 hours to complete 4000 km Next I attempted RAAM in 2016 But I could complete only 2460 miles in 10 days before I had to bow out But I was determined to do it So I tried again this year and succeeded” Gokulnath said The expenses involved in the race are in the range of Rs 1 crore While Samarth’s expedition was funded by friends and sponsors Gokulnath’s was a completely self-funded one “I was dreaming about it every second All my passwords of e-mail bank and other accounts had something to do with RAAM It was all about relentless training sorting out logistics and working with the crew My wife Prafulla a doctor was with me in the race while our three-year old son Rohan stayed back with relatives” says Gokulnath Samarth is the only Indian to have run both the Iron Man title and RAAM in maiden attempts He believes it was the excruciating practice along several thousand kilometres from Nagpur to Bangalore and Goa that was the basis of his success Samarth’s first tryst with endurance sport was when he earned the title of Vidarbha Shri in a bodybuilding contest during his MBBS days “I felt concerned about the lack of endurance strength and fitness among Indians” says the doctor who has a Master’s in Public Health from the prestigious Johns Hopkins University at Baltimore US The RAAM is run in mountainous West Virginia and the deserts of Arizona “The most gruelling part is the last stretch — the third mountain climbing section of the race in Appalachian ranges that goes on for 614 km” says Samarth This year it was particularly hard as temperatures were mostly above 40 degrees particularly in Arizona and light reflected from rocks would virtually blind the cyclists Gokulnath was dehydrated immediately after he began “It took me three days to fully recover In the middle of America between Alamosa and Laveta I had to fight windy rains that put me back by three hours And towards the end I had to pass through hurricane Cindy But as I biked along I kept on getting stronger” Gokulnath says Samarth was plagued by dehydration as well “My lips dried out and my nose started bleeding But my experience with the infamous Nagpur heat helped a lot The first three days are all about climbing which is where most participants wear out and leave the race Then along the way one often meets with notorious American rainstorms particularly in West Virginia” says Samarth Both doctors were ably supported by their crew members friends and family members who accompanied them in SUVs “I had my wife Mukul my mother Vijaya seven-year old son Ayaan and about 15 others

able to drain quickly Related News Unprecedented disasters are ironically becoming frequent phenomena The Mumbai floods of 2005 Barmer floods of 2006 Leh floods of 2010 and Uttarakhand floods of 2013 are some of the “never-before” kind of events in recent years Many of them also had a significant urban impact Then the Jammu and Kashmir floods occurred and people woke up to friends and family stuck on their rooftops in Srinagar Cities will be hit increasingly harder in the times to come The UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction has identified floods as the singlemost widespread disaster risk to urban settlements globally The poor undoubtedly will be the hardest hit as always Rivers have attracted settlements since ancient times What is new is the aggressiveness of these settlements What used to be riverfront development earlier has now degenerated into “river-bed development” Rivers more so the monsoon-fed ones have two distinct channels — one where the water flows during “normal” times and the other that it spreads into during peak flow in the rainy season In most riverfront cities urban development has gradually crept into this second channel belabouring under a perceived protection of embankments or the ignorant comfort of the fact that a big flood hasn’t happened in the last few years Such lands are being encroached upon by squatters or sold to unsuspecting buyers by unscrupulous developers Besides river beds urban lakes wetlands and drainage channels are being encroached upon in similar fashion Humayun Rashid and Gowhar Naseem of the Jammu and Kashmir State Remote Sensing Centre presented facts to this effect at the World Lake Conference in 2007 in Jaipur where they used satellite imagery to trace the physical growth of Srinagar between 1911 and 2004 The statistics and maps show a phenomenal increase of built-up space from a mere 3 per cent to 15 per cent of the city area Of this additional 12 per cent land that the growing city gobbled up 10 per cent came from low-lying wetlands and marshes while 2 per cent came from open water surfaces meaning lakes and water channels The study concluded that over 9100 hectares of open water surface and wetlands have been totally lost to other land uses during the period That equals 18000 football fields In the process more than 50 per cent of the lakes and wetlands of Srinagar have been lost No wonder then that nature decided to reclaim them at least for some time Let not the urban growth story fool us into believing that newly developed city areas will necessarily lead to a good safe life Whether heritage town slum or new urban development if there is a city in a flood plain or on reclaimed low lying land water will always find its way in one day Climate change may make sure that that day comes sooner than later High population densities concrete surfaces and poorly maintained drainage sanitation and solid waste infrastructure make urban areas more prone to floods as the water is not able to drain quickly Srinagar where parts of the city remained inundated for three weeks is the latest reminder of this water-trap phenomenon Much of this developmental mess takes place because our cities are growing untamed Of over 6000 cities in India only about 2000 have proper master plans while the bulk mostly small and medium towns is growing with lax or no regulations By the time plans are put in place much of the area would already have been poorly developed and the damage irreversible Considering that 25000 people are added to Indian cities each day time is running out A handful of developed cities are attracting suburban dwellers with their modern apartments expressways and malls Let not these embellishments lead one to ignore the underlying risk in these cities You don’t have to go far from the national capital to see a prime example of a ticking time-bomb Noida came up as a suburb in violation of the National Capital Region concept that had originally advocated against congesting the periphery of Delhi The location was too attractive for the home state to let go of the opportunities it offered due to its proximity to Delhi Successive changes during and after the initial urban planning processes have ensured that high-density and high-worth development has taken place in what used to be the Yamuna’s playground Jamal Ansari former director of the School of Planning and Architecture Delhi and a lead planner for Noida’s master plan rues that political and popular pressure distorts urban plans and increases disaster risks exponentially He underscores the fact that the embankments that protect Delhi and Noida from the Yamuna are not infallible While it is easy to blame bad urban development and governance for the state of affairs it needs to be acknowledged that good citizenry is as much a requirement for safe and sustainable cities as good governments International good practices of liveable and healthy cities are backed with grassroot action plans citizens’ engagement and participatory planning and action To understand our cities better and to play a positive role in their future it is important to understand the origins of urban planning Clarence Perry a pioneer of city planning had established the neighbourhood as a basic unit for a city He defined the neighbourhood as that space wherein a child could walk to the local elementary school within 10 minutes without having to cross a major road This translated into neighbourhoods of one-fourth of a mile radius with the elementary school and conveniences at the centre houses linked with connecting greens and no major roads crisscrossing them Ebenezer Howard another British urban planner put forth the idea of garden cities Our very own Bhubaneswar was planned on similar green principles by German Otto Knigsberger with wide roads and many gardens and parks remnants of which are visible even today behind the humdrum of the new-age congestion Good cities through fundamental principles and friendly planning were safe cities “Smart cities” must bring them back The writer an urban planner specialising in environment and disaster management isco-founder of SEEDS For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWinter Session of Parliament ends on Friday and since the latter half of the day will bedevoted to Private Members Bill it is unlikely that the now controversial Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017 (or triple talaq Bill) would come up for discussion In the first half of the House’s proceedings on Friday besides question hour and zero hour there could be some other urgent business like the GST Bill which couldn’t be taken on Thursday Thus the triple talaq Bill will now come for discussion and passage only in the Budget Session of Parliament But then Congress the so-called ‘secularist’ parties and all those who were opposed to this Bill albeit in garb of opposing only the clause criminalising talaaq-e-biddat (or triple talaq) have little reason to cheer; in fact they will have much to ponder over the coming weeks Finance Minister Arun Jaitley speaks in the Lok Sabha on Thursday PTI The Congress has not helped its cause by the way it conducted itself in Upper House of Parliament In some ways the party under Rahul Gandhi’s leadership was back to doing what Congress did in 1986 under leadership of his father Rajiv Gandhi Enjoying a brute majority in both Houses of Parliament the party had overturned a Supreme Court judgment in the Shah Bano case to appease Muslim men and maulvis(clerics) Consider what Congress did now: It made token opposition to the bill in Lok Sabha over the clause criminalising triple talaq In oral submission its leader Sushmita Dev went a step forward to say “I want to ask you (government) that when you criminalise something like this will it alienate the Muslim community more than it already has” However when the Bill was taken up for passage the Congress didn’t vote against the Bill In effect it supported the Bill as it stands now In Rajya Sabha however the Congress took an awkward position For the records it said that it was in favour of gender justice and hence supports the spirit of the Bill but at the same time maintaining that it wouldn’t allow the law to be passed in its current form The Congress’s position is same as that of Muslim clerics and the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) In simple words the Congress did nothing but found itself an excuse to stall the Bill in Upper House where the party and its partners in the United Progressive Alliance still have majority Meanwhile this does not augur well for Rahul Gandhi who had tried to shed the pro-minority tag during Gujarat elections by going to over two dozen temples and not a single mosque or dargah But his position as reflected by his party’s stand on the key Bill may put him in same spot from where he had began in the run up to Gujarat elections The problem for Congress is that by the time this Bill would be taken up sometime during the Budget Session the electioneering for Assembly polls in Tripura Nagaland Meghalaya and Karnataka would have gained momentum The BJP will have enough ammunition to taken on Rahul and Congress The BJP through its strong position in the Supreme Court then through whatever debate that could happened in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha has smartly hijacked popular narrative on the subject It has effectively addressed its own primary vote bank in addition to a substantive section of Muslim women More so it didn’t allow the Bill to be sent to Select Committee of Rajya Sabha and kept it alive in same form as it exists today to be debated in Budget Session Though the triple talaq Bill especially after the Supreme Court verdict was meant to address gender justice it has unfortunately become the most raging debate of 2018 The way the Bill-related proceedings progressed in both Houses of Parliament was indicative of how various political parties concerned – ruling and opposition — want to play politics over the issue The burden of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s argument in Rajya Sabha (whatever little he could say) was on highlighting the obvious duality inCongress’ position He said the whole nation was watching proceedings of Parliament on this issue and would make their own assessment of “one political party which supported it in the Lower House and has been making public statement that we support this Bill is now in this House creating all kinds of obstacles” Outside of the Parliament the BJP leaders stuck to the same point After talking to some BJP leaders it was fairly clearthat the party had a fair idea about the fate of the bill in Rajya Sabha where numbers are still not in its favour Thus the party’s strategy was to ‘expose’ the Congress and make it a political point that the Grand Old Party was still enamoured with the Muslim clerics and was not bothered about gender justice In any case the Congress did not make its stand clear on the issue till the Supreme Court in August last year declared triple talaq illegal Neither did it take a position while it was in government at the Centre for 10 years The UPA had then maintained that it was for the Muslim community to take a call In fact one party’s top brass Kapil Sibal a senior advocate and former Union minister represented the All India Muslim Personal Law Board which supported triple talaq in the Supreme Court In it’s over enthusiasm the Congress tread just the path BJP would have liked it to take See what Congress did in Rajya Sabha while demanding it to be sent to `Select Committee’ It wanted the bill to go to a committee formed for the purpose of scrutinizing the bill which would only have members from Congress and its allied parties leaving members of the government out completely This is what Congress leader Anand Sharma said while moving the motion: The Bill be referred to to a Select Committee of Rajya Sabha comprising the following Members for parliamentary scrutiny and to ensure complete justice for the Muslim women and safeguard their interest and welfare The names he proposed were Renuka Chowdhury K Rahman Khan Vivek K Tankha (all Congress) Derek O’Brien (Trinamool Congress) Javed Ali Khan (Samajwadi Party) Satish Chandra Misra (Bahujan Samaj Party) Tiruchi Siva (DMK) Majeed Memon (Nationalist Congress Party) KK Ragesh (Communist Party of India-Marxist) CM Ramesh (Telegu Desham Party) Prasanna Acharya (Biju Janata Dal) Misha Bharti (Rashtriya Janata Dal) Sanjiv Kumar (Jharkhand Mukti Morcha) D Raja (Communist Party of India) Abdul Wahab (Indian Union Muslim League) KTS Tulsi (nominated as MP during UPA regime) Thus the question is that could there be a parliamentary committee to examine a Bill of this nature without any member from ruling party onboard The point was naturally exploited by Jaitley to lead Treasury benches’ charge against the Opposition: “What is the kind of parliamentary practice that you are creating You give a void motion and say that only members representing a particular group will be on a Committee of Parliament Tomorrow if Parliamentary Committees are appointed in whichever House a party has a majority everybody of that particular party will constitute hundred percent of the Committee This has never happened since 1952 in this Parliament” The winter session of Parliament ends on Friday but the triple talaq debate will continue to heat up the Indian politics in days and weeks to come Written by Nisha
