If Nelson is rightthen universities in the future will spend much less time transmitting technical knowledge and much more time transmitting practical knowledge Practical knowledge is not about what you dobut how you do it It is the wisdom a great chef possesses that cannot be found in recipe books Practical knowledge is not the sort of knowledge that can be taught and memorised; it can only be imparted and absorbed It is not reducible to rules; it only exists in practice Now I could give you a theory about how universities can transmit this sort of practical moral wisdombut lets save that Lets focus on practical wisdom in the modern workplace Think about Sheryl Sandbergs recent bookLean In Put aside the debate about the challenges facing women in society Focus on the tasks she describes as being important for anybody who wants to rise in this economy: the ability to be assertive in a meeting; to disagree pleasantly; to know when to interrupt and when not to; to understand the flow of discussion and how to change peoples minds; to attract mentors; to understand situations; to discern what can change and what cant These skills are practical knowledge Anybody who works in a modern office knows that they are surprisingly rare But students can learn these skills at a universitythrough student activitiesthrough the living examples of their professors and also in seminars The problem with the current seminars is that its really hard to know what anybody gets out of them The conversations might be livelybut they flow by so fast you feel as if youre missing important points and exchanges The goal should be to use technology to take a free-form seminar and turn it into a deliberate seminar (Im borrowing Anders Ericssons definition of deliberate practice) Seminars could be recorded with video-camerasand exchanges could be reviewed and analysed to pick apart how a disagreement was handled and how a debate was conducted Episodes in one seminar could be replayed for another Students could be assessedand their seminar skills could be tracked over time So farmost of the talk about online education has been on technology and lecturesbut the important challenge is technology and seminars So farthe discussion is mostly about technical knowledgebut the future of the universities is in practical knowledge For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express

release of Mani Ratnam’s Kaatru Veliyidai the critics have taken two sides One side points out that Mani Ratnam’s film starring Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari was a let down Another side tells us that the movie was a love story told like never before VC (Karthi) and Leela (Aditi) fall in love – VC is a masochistic animal who thinks women are ‘made’ for certain things Leela is the doctor who asked to be assigned in Kashmir for her first post How the two evolve through the situations – mostly how VC evolves as person is captured in the film This is about that stark memory that so many of us revisit It is about running towards making that memory a part of your reality today It is about taking determined steps in that direction even as the memory starts to get hazy This is yet another Mani Ratnam experience Only this one lacks conviction Screenplay There are so many layers in this film some that might not have a connect with you But the ones that hit a chord do so perfectly Each scene in itself is a stroke of masterpiece each expression a beautiful colour on a canvas Only the picture that forms in the end doesn’t take your breath away for it lacks conviction Direction The tale of Leela Abraham a doctor who works in Srinagar and officer Varun is poetic It starts with Bharatiyar’s poem and ends on an expected note You could marvel at every frame you could applaud Mani Ratnam’s portrayal of a woman who fights falling in love with an arrogant and self-obsessed man It happens often But he nails the struggle that Leela feels beautifully Karthi’s role of a fighter pilot a man who is a study in contradictions is one of the best characters created by the director so far But the film takes a turn for the worse when the characters do not create an impact Mani Ratnam is known to make films with characters that leave the cinema hall with you Neither Leela nor VC manage that Also read |EXCLUSIVE Karthi on Kaatru Veliyidai: Mani Ratnam’s set is the place where I grew up Cast While Karthi has done an excellent job of playing the role of an arrogant and chauvinistic man Aditi Rao Hydari as Leela is the shining star The chemistry between the two is splendid Their action and reaction timing and the way they complement each other is on point RJ Balaji as Dr Illayas and Rukmini as Dr Nidhi are great Unexpectedly RJ Balaji’s humour in this film is better than the plot Cinematography The star of this film is its cinematography by Ravi Varman There are certain shots in the film that would leave you with goosebumps for they are just perfect Certain scenes were so creatively shot and certain scenes capture the emotions of the character in such a way that has never been seen before Close up shots reflections and mirror images were used beautifully Music AR Rahman’s soundtracks became a hit among fans when they were released online Vaan and Azhagiye remain top chartbusters even today Tango Kelaayo Nallai Allai and Saarattu Vandiyile have been picturised beautifully The songs – refreshing and as beautiful as they are did not add much value in terms helping the pace of the movie The background score was as expected by AR Rahman Vairamuthu’s lyrics especially for Nallai Allai is memorable Every scene has an extra oomph because of the way it was framed and Mani Ratnam’s films are known for great picturisation For all the latest Entertainment News

putting ties with China back on track in 1988 after they were derailed nearly three decades earlier under the first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru Related News BJP’s BEIJING Prime Minister Narendra Modi has much greater political space at home than his predecessor Manmohan Singh in making more confident moves towards China If Singh was hobbled by the Congress party’s ambivalence towards China the BJP has been far less inhibited BJP leaders hawkish in opposition towards China tended to be pragmatic in their approach to Beijing when in power In democracies rightwing parties that talk tough on national security don’t have to look over their shoulder in making bold foreign policy moves They can also count on the support of left and liberal sections when they reach out to presumed national adversaries If Modi generates new warmth in relations with China many of his critics at home will find it hard not to clap Congress leader Rajiv Gandhi certainly gets much credit for putting ties with China back on track in 1988 after they were derailed nearly three decades earlier under the first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru Conventional wisdom however glosses over the fact that it was the BJP’s Atal Bihari Vajpayee who served as India’s foreign minister in the Janata government led by Morarji Desai who first extended the hand of friendship to China after Nehru Vajpayee travelled to Beijing nearly a decade before Gandhi did When he became prime minister Vajpayee surprised Beijing by citing the threat from China as the principal justification for his decision to conduct five nuclear tests in May 1998 less than two months after he was sworn in But Vajpayee moved quickly to repair relations with China Vajpayee took the initiative to resolve the dispute with China over Sikkim During his visit to China in 2003 Vajpayee persuaded Chinese leaders to begin a new political effort to settle the boundary question The fruits from this endeavour fell into the UPA government’s lap two years later in the summer of 2005 in the form of an agreement on the guiding principles for the resolution of the boundary dispute SWEET & SOUR The Congress leadership did not have the political will to push forward on the China relationship The Congress always talked about friendship with China in grandiose terms But it did not have the stomach to take the hard decisions on key issues in India’s China policy: settling the boundary dispute deepening economic cooperation and competing vigorously with Beijing for strategic influence in Asia The Congress leadership seemed paralysed by the fear of offending China and drew red lines for itself on the engagement with other nations especially the United States and Japan Modi appears to be turning this failed policy on its head Despite the deep resentment in the BJP against Washington’s decade-long denial of a visa to Modi the PM has decided that the US must remain central to India’s foreign policy and signalled warmth towards Washington Modi has also drawn close to Japan’s premier Shinzo Abe amidst deteriorating relations between Beijing and Tokyo Modi made bold to refer to China’s “expansionism” from Japanese soil All this does not make Modi “anti-China” in any sense Modi has made it quite clear that he will go a lot further than the Congress government in inviting Chinese investments into India He might also be more open than the UPA government to various Chinese proposals to develop new silk roads — overland and maritime — between China and India At the same time Modi is determined to accelerate India’s military modernisation and strengthen its defences on the contested frontier along the Great Himalayas Modi’s sweet and sour policy towards China has not constrained his engagement with Beijing His hardball diplomacy might actually have improved his standing with Chinese President Xi Jinping MODI WITH XI If Modi is a strong leader who is bringing greater purposefulness to India’s China policy Xi is even more powerful at home He has conveyed a strong interest in transforming relations with New Delhi and is willing to explore opportunities with Modi Sceptics would dismiss such talk by pointing to the multiple challenges facing the bilateral relationship from the boundary dispute to the trade deficit They also point to the growing nationalism in both countries and the intensification of regional competition as real obstacles to substantive bilateral cooperation The engagement between Modi and Xi then is about the tension between the objective limitations and subjective possibilities

Saala Khadoos will see the talented actor donning the boxing gloves to play the role of a boxing coach to newbie actress Ritika Singh The movie traces the story of R Madhavan who as a retired boxer

heavyduty boxing sequences involving Ritika Singh who is a real life boxer and has been MMA fighter in the past One of the major USPs of the movie is the association of Rajkumar Hirani whose banner is co-producing the film Given Hirani’s keen acumen at selecting scripts that are different yet entertaining and also the fact that he sat for the edits of this movie one could safely hazard a guess that ‘Saala Khadoos’ too will see elements of Rajkumar Hirani drama (Read:Boxer Ritika Singh of Saala Khadoos wants to continue acting) Mastizaade on the other hand promises to be a laugh riot for adults
