Keeping up with the Joneses Try the Chickens and the Crazies

first_imgThe Christmas season in Costa Rica is an embarrassment of riches. Where I come from, Christmas is a bright and festive light in the middle of the cold and dark – and that has its own, unparalleled beauty. Here, however, it’s everything good all at once: The rainy season is over and summer is here, with its sunny days and cool Christmas winds! School’s out! Theaguinaldo has arrived! Tax season is ending, time off is approaching, the streets and shops are full of lights, there are tamales and rompope and Tapitas Navideñas everywhere! Quick, get me some more exclamation points! It’s overwhelming, in the best possible way, like a fantasy. I can’t even imagine what it’s like for kids. I wonder if there’s a spike in hyperventilation rates at the Children’s Hospital.By the way, if you’re reading this in a place that involves scraping ice off your windshield, I know you just said, “You can take your ‘embarrassment of riches’ and stick it in a place where the sun don’t shine. As in, the place where I live.” I can hear you from here. But while I know from long experience that the rainy season doesn’t compare to a long, hard winter, it really is a whole lotta water, and the start of the dry season carries some of the same feeling of those precious first days of spring up north. Walking around without an umbrella on early December afternoons gives you that same sensation of being sprung from a cage, of being out after curfew.  You want to run and dance or sing, and do everything outside, and sit out on patios with your hot coffee or row of cold beers.The other day, as a neon sunset took charge of the sky over our neighborhood, I remembered spending an afternoon just as gorgeous on a front porch in another part of San José with my husband and his mother several years ago. It was one of the best afternoons I’ve spent in Costa Rica. All we did was drink our coffee, watch the world go by, enjoy the sun, and chat. And by “chat,” I mean that they told me all about how Costa Rican family nicknames work.See also: The amazing true story of ‘tuanis’ and ‘brete’One of them was  telling a story and referred to “las panaderas” (“the bakers,” female). I was confused, and they explained that since the mother is a baker, the whole family – mother and daughters – is known by that name. I asked, “Are there any other nicknames in the neighborhood?” And for the next hour or so, they came up with about 40 different names as I took copious notes. It turned out that every single home in the neighborhood had a special nickname floating above its roof, visible only to insiders. No wonder I had never understood directions around here. “You can’t miss it! Just go down by the Crazies’ house, turn left and keep going until you hit the Sausages.”The whole business of nicknames in Costa Rica could (and may well) take up several columns, but the family nicknames have a special place in my heart. In the United States, at least in the places I have lived, we had a certain neighborhood shorthand, but nothing like this. I won’t list the names I wrote down that day because I want to make sure my husband’s family doesn’t have to move, but some of the ones I’ve heard and read over the subsequent years included:Nicknames based on physical characteristics (“Los cepillo” is a family whose dad has sticky-up hair like a brush, or “Los pandulce” could be so named because the matriarch wears her hair pulled back into the shape of a sweet roll. These two cases, as it has been explained to me, mix plural and singular – “los” and “cepillo” –because while they describe a group, only one member of the family has the characteristic. See below).Nicknames generalized to the whole family because of the nickname of one member, usually the dad (A man called “Pollo” is of course the father of the family known as “The Chickens”).Nicknames based on professions (“The Bakers” falls into this category, or “The Carriage-Drivers,” which must either refer to taxi drivers or go way back).Nicknames based on personality or old neighborhood lore (“The Crazies” is such an example).Or, always my favorites, tons and tons of nicknames no one can seem to explain. Why “The Jars?” No idea. Did it have something to do with a story with the brother way back? No, we can’t remember. “The Sausages?” No idea.A conversation about these things is better than poring over a photo album. You hear the stories, the rumors, the unanswered questions. Uncle so-and-so or cousin tal fulano is called in to clarify just why that one guy whose actual name no one can remember earned the nickname of “The Bedcovers” for his entire family.Of course, nicknames must be used with care. They can create a sense of jovial familiarity, but they can also be problematic. I can honestly say that I have never heard a racist neighborhood nickname being used (or at least, one I recognized as such), but they must exist. A person who is alcoholic or addicted to drugs can earn a corresponding nickname for his or her entire family, thus codifying the already difficult legacy that the children have to bear. And while it’s one thing to make fun of a family’s unruly hair, there are nicknames that turn much more unfortunate physical characteristics into the butt of jokes.I love living in a neighborhood of Parrots and Tarzans rather than Joneses and Smiths, but it’s certainly incumbent on all of us – as neighbors, and especially as parents – to sort through these issues with sensitivity, seeking that sweet spot before humor becomes cruelty. Is this a nickname I would say to their faces? Or, more importantly, in front of the children? This is a judgment call every culture, maybe even every neighborhood, must make for itself, because standards are different in different places. Costa Rica is, without any doubt, much more open about all kinds of physical characteristics than we were in my own upbringing. If you’re fat, people will call you fat; it’s not a big secret or taboo. If you’re skinny as a rail, people will call you a flat board or say that you’re doing a handstand (that is, your legs are so skinny they look like arms). As a person who has always struggled with weight, I personally found this refreshing or even liberating, but mine is only one experience. This is a complex topic, especially when it comes to race or ethnicity, for example.Which is why I’d like to turn this one over to you. As the sun set on that early December day, at the end of the recounting of neighborhood stories and jokes, I asked my husband and his mother, “And what is your family called?”There was a thoughtful, surprised silence. It was obvious that this question had never before been posed.“Are you serious? A list the length of my arm, and you don’t know what everyone calls YOU?”They really didn’t. I found this both fascinating and mysterious (and I eventually got to the bottom of it. They are “The Sweet Rolls” mentioned above). So I ask you: Who are the families in your neighborhood? What are the nicknames you love – and the ones that should be removed from the lexicon? And what is YOUR family called? Do you know? Tell me true.Enjoy the Christmas breezes.Read previous Maeology columns here.Katherine Stanley Obando is The Tico Times’ arts and entertainment editor.

Related Brexit Travelling to the EU with a UK pas

first_img RelatedBrexit: Travelling to the EU with a UK passportThere could be some important changes coming for UK citizens travelling to Europe. Here’s what we know so far to help you be prepared. Have you checked your passport? First things first – make sure you check your passport is still valid. That’s because in the event of a no-deal Brexit,…Top tips for peace of mind when you travelIf one of your New Year’s resolutions is to travel more, then you’re hopefully in for an exciting year. But whether you’re a seasoned traveller, or you’re venturing off solo for the first time, we know that planning even the most longed-for holidays can bring its own anxieties. From insurance…Skyscanner’s essential packing listPacking for your next adventure is never easy. Hours are spent umm-ing and ahh-ing over whether you really need 17 tops for that one-week trip, before you arrive at the airport and realise you’ve left something vitally important… like your passport. Our packing list will help you get yourself organised,… 2. Thou shalt check in online as well as double-check airport informationThese days it’s the norm to check-in online before your trip, so make sure you do this as soon as you can and print off your boarding pass to avoid any airport delays. On the topic of airports – are you sure you are going to the right airport? For example, there are five London airports, so make sure it’s Gatwick not Heathrow you need to go to. When you’re en route, find out in advance which terminal you’re departing from to avoid that last minute moment of panic.To make your travel experience a bit easier, listen to Skyscanner’s podcast about airport annoyances and how to beat them3. Thou shalt label luggageAlways label your luggage. It’s a simple rule but many of us forget it and it’s a big helping hand to airline staff to ensure your baggage does not get lost. On the outward journey, don’t display your home address on the outside of the label, instead write down the address of your destination hotel, your flight details and have your home address on the inside. Include your email address and contact number in case your bag goes missing. Also take a photograph of your luggage in case you need to show this to anyone to help identify it if you lose it. It’s also a good idea to use something distinctive to label your bag – for example a colourful ribbon. Suitcases can look very similar and it’s easy to pick up someone else’s by mistake. 4. Thou shalt get travel insuranceIt may feel like an unnecessary expense – but the day you don’t buy it, you’ll need it! Don’t automatically go for the cheapest option, instead take the time to compare different companies, read reviews and the small print and consider an annual policy if you travel several times a year. Anything can happen when you go away – from lost lugagge to stolen money and cancelled flights, so it’s best to be safe than sorry. You’ll appreciate it the one day you do need it. 5. Thou shalt prepare for the journey homeYour full focus may be on the holiday itself, but don’t let the dream holiday have a dreary end by failing to prepare for the journey home. If you’ve driven to the airport – where are the car keys? More importantly where is your car parked and who’s got the parking ticket? Also where have you put your house keys? It’s a great idea to have a separate clear plastic ziplock bag in your hand luggage with all the items for your return journey home – so have all your keys in here as well as the parking ticket and a piece of paper with the car park information. On top of this – have some of your home currency – for example a few coins in case you need a trolley at the airport. 6. Thou shalt check for vaccination requirementsDon’t overlook the vaccinations and assume you had them all years ago. Certain vaccinations need a booster after a number of years, and there may be ones you’ve not had yet. There are certain countries that require vaccination certificates to travel so be sure to check vaccination requirements before you go on your trip. Also don’t forget to look into any other medications you may need for example – malaria tablets and you should always have a first aid kit with you.7. Thou shalt print off the name and address of the hotelThere’s nothing more frustrating than arriving in a new city, but being delayed en route to the hotel. Don’t assume the taxi driver will automatically know the address if you give him/her the name of the hotel. Instead, it’s always best to be prepared and have the full address of the hotel and a map too. Also print off your reservation voucher and the phone number of the hotel in case you need to get a local to speak to the hotel staff to get clearer directions. Find your ideal hotel with Skyscanner’s Hotels app8. Thou shalt get foreign currencyShop around before you leave to find the best rate. It’s a bad idea to get the money at the airport as the counters here often have the worst exchange rates. Instead look into ordering currency online or picking it up beforehand. Also try to have smaller denominations if possible so you are able to tip the taxi driver or porter if you are staying at a hotel. 9. Thou shalt remember the travel adaptorsYou’ve remembered your phone charger, but did you remember the travel adaptor? Ideally bring a couple and have one in your hand luggage and one in your checked luggage. If you do forget it, it’s a good idea to check with the hotel reception as they will often have a collection of chargers past visitors have left. Another tip – if your charger needs a USB port, sometimes flat screen TVs at hotels may have a spare port you can use.10. Thou shalt pack lightlyWe all have the urge to overpack, but do you really need so many pairs of shoes? A lighter suitcase means more room for shopping and less danger of airport stress when you’re charged extra for a heavy bag. You should always be prepared for the worst case scenario – i.e. the airline losing your luggage or someone taking it by mistake, so make sure you have a change of clothes and some essentials in your carry-on bag. Also – to check your bags aren’t over the weight limit, be sure to invest in some luggage scales to eliminate the guesswork.

A stress-free holiday isn’t as hard to achieve as you may think, all you have to do is adhere to these important holiday commandments:1. Thou shalt check all travel documentsYou may have remembered your passport, but this doesn’t mean you’ve got the green light to travel. There are several important checks to carry out before embarking on any journey. Firstly, make sure your passport hasn’t expired, and if it is in date, be aware that some countries require you to have at least six months left before you need to renew it. Secondly, if your passport is in date, remember that certain places require at least two blank pages that they can stamp. Have you checked if the country you are travelling to has visa requirements? You may be refused entry if you don’t have a valid visa. Be sure to make copies (paper as well as digital that you email to yourself). last_img read more

sudeeppaul@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Nikhil Dey Aruna Roy | Updated: January 2 2015 8:48 am Related News The first nine months of the new BJP government has only underscored its anti-poor anti-rural image The substantive and substantial changes in rural development have been restrictive in nature The new government has worked to undermine the legal and financial framework of MGNREGA substantially weakened the provisions of the land acquisition act through an ordinance and through year-end budget cuts they have undermined almost every social sector programme reportedly squeezing Rs 15000 crore out of rural development alone The BJP government’s only rural development initiative so far has been the launch of the symbolic Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY) It requires MPs to choose one village/ panchayat in their parliamentary constituency where they will through their supervision and initiative attempt to converge all government programmes across sectors and create a model village It “aims at instilling certain values in the villages and their people so that they get transformed into models for others” Introducing the guidelines the prime minister calls it “a scheme that will actualise the dreams of rural India” The SAGY is flawed conceptually Without any additional input or funds this programme is supposed to work in a minuscule number of 800 (2400 over five years) village panchayats that the other 600000 Indian villages would follow The core objective is a pipedream of saansad-induced virtuosity Every shortcoming in the chosen panchayat will be under amplified scrutiny forcing the highest public functionaries of the district/ constituency — the district collector and the MP — to pour inordinate attention on one village to show some success And where it does succeed through intensive care attention additional staff and resources SAGY will create a situation of anger and envy amongst the other villages and panchayats Choosing one over others threatens the very basis of representation in electoral politics With good reason the excluded ones (over 99 per cent panchayats) may ask why not us Any success would generate alienation and undermine the possibility of replication It is absurd to shrink the mandate of an MP or a district collector to that of a sarpanch and gram sevak The collector and MP are supposed to make every village and panchayat an adarsh gram and should be evaluated for an adarsh zila or constituency That is their mandate In any case replication of models has failed across the world and even the examples the PM quotes — Punsari in Gujarat Gangadevipally in Andhra Pradesh and Hivre Bazaar in Maharashtra or even Anna Hazare’s Ralegaon Siddhi have at best remained “models” that have failed to be replicated even in neighbouring panchayats India’s development programmes are well known for their innovative designs but equally notorious for the paucity of resources that undermine them This is also true for agriculture education health water electricity rural infrastructure social security livelihood and skill development That is why the entitlement approach of rights-based legislation such as the MGNREGA the forest rights act the right to food and the right to education offered a new paradigm for the large number of economically and socially marginalised It sought to provide a legal framework of justiciable accountability for at least a limited set of basic services and entitlements It mandated by law the resources and the basic standards of efficiency for meeting development objectives The BJP it seems is seeking to replace these substantive development commitments of the state with largely symbolic programmes that will somehow give an idea of the greatness of Indian values The shrinking of resources for rural development and the imposition of resource-free symbolic programmes are two sides of the same coin Symbolism is the mode used to hide the contradictions and it actually provides a clear picture of what the PM means by “minimum government maximum governance” Schools without teachers and infrastructure hospitals without staff and medicines villages without water and electricity no funds for MGNREGA unpaid IAY installments no accountability no grievance redress and the continuing distress of caste/ gender/ socio-economic oppression are all set aside for the grand spectacle of adarsh gram The first example the PM and other MPs could have set was in their “choice” of the village The guidelines state that “the MP would be free to identify a suitable gram panchayat for being developed as adarsh gram other than his/ her own village or that of his/ her spouse” The prime minister chose a village in Varanasi that reportedly does not have a single Muslim This model value system was rapidly emulated by other BJP MPs in UP and across the country Politicians seem to have realised that the privilege of choice can be another tool to use state resources to symbolically establish their favourites and marginalise communities and voices that are in their calculation expendable Was this deliberate Is this the example that the PM wants to set The negative impact this symbolic act has had far outweighs its local context In his “selection” the PM has reinforced his stereotype while succeeding in undermining the credibility of the rural development establishment and the secular face of the state itself Given the claims to “rajdharma” the PM should have heeded the protest and distress that followed the prejudice evident in the initial SAGY village selections But he was unresponsive Clearly the guidelines to the scheme that speak of high ideals and values adorned by quotes from Mahatma Gandhi and Jayaprakash Narayan are just empty rhetoric One wonders why the corporate sector is not offered similar platitudes replete with much needed moral lectures of responsibility to people environment and equity Why does reform for them mean such substantial and substantive gifts of India’s land natural resources and labour And who shares those spoils No adarsh corporate in that scheme of things The SAGY is a paternalistic moralising impractical scheme that will do nothing but divert us from facing the real challenges of development and democratic governance Rural India urgently needs resources an accountable framework for basic services and real citizenship across every village in the country If anything this scheme should have been made open to all/ any panchayat(s) that opted to try and make constitutional objectives a reality along with an independent evaluation system that measured innovation and success Consequently even if it did not add to the sum of our development understanding at least the ill effects of arbitrary selection favouritism and attention would be avoided The sooner the SAGY is reviewed and substantially reworked the better

An editorial in the Organiser urges India to give up its Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) membership as it reminds us of our colonial past Lauding India’s decision to boycott the annual conference of the CPA to be held in Islamabad in protest against Pakistan not inviting the speaker of the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly it says: “As Pakistan’s adamant stand on an invitation to the speaker of the J&K Assembly and mute spectatorship of other members have again jeopardised Bharat’s position on J&K Bharat should sound a death knell on the membership… Instead of that the same energy should be utilised to strengthen institutions in the Indian Ocean region and Southeast Asia” “The question is not limited to the conference but the very rationale to be part of this organisation symbolising the colonial baggage” it asserts The editorial argues that the CPA “is meant to cherish the colonial heritage that many intellectuals rationalised in the post-Independence period Bharat with its growing stature should [re]think continuing with this colonial bondage” Spirited Defence The editorial in Panchajanya lauds External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s intervention in Parliament on August 12 explaining her position in the IPL controversy According to the editorial her speech gave the sense of a different “psychological freedom” and cannot be viewed just as an explanation of the conduct of the external affairs minister “It will be an injustice if one considers it just as an explanation by the minister or a counter attack” it states In a way it was an explosion of many questions that were on the minds of several people it says Swaraj’s explanation has left more questions than it answered it says but Parliament is the best place in a democracy to beat a family-oriented party “Post Independence there was a disease in our society that not only avoided criticism of some families but also considered them to be above allegations August 12 demolished that concept No one had ever ventured to question or expose the Congress’s first family The biggest diffidence in Indian democracy was shattered on that day in the temple of democracy” it argues “Wherever it is necessary there should be investigation and strict action Everyone has to face the truth and everyone should be treated equally… But on the occasion of the 69th Independence Day the Congress’s Yuvaraj should tell us: What’s his problem in Parliament getting back to normalcy” it asks First Family The cover story in the latest issue of Panchajanya criticises the Congress and its leadership for the disruptions in Parliament and talks about how External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj exposed the Gandhi family in her counter attack on the IPL controversy in which she was targeted by the opposition The article starts with claiming that the nation will never forget the glimpses of Sonia Gandhi’s expression when Swaraj attacked her late husband Rajiv Gandhi for the sins of “omission” and “quid pro quo” committed during his time as prime minister “Many in the country are aware of the exploits of the Congress’s first family But those voices were always suppressed” it says adding that Subramaniam Swamy had levelled many allegations against them but people did not have the written or other evidence to believe them “But Sushma Swaraj’s speech has become a starting point for those who want to speak on this issue What she said was in the presence of both Sonia and Rahul Gandhi and is in the records of Parliament” It also criticises Mallikarjun Kharge saying that his “demand to dismiss Swaraj’s speech… was an expression of the Congress’s commitment to one family” The article written by Jnanedra Bartariya also points out that the demand was countered by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s argument that if portions of Swaraj’s speech were to be expunged Kharge’s entire speech should be expunged too For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More

treatment on screen Related News Johnny Depp is 53 years old but he doesn’t look a day over 26 in the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie at least for a few moments There was no plastic surgeon involved heavy makeup or archival footage used to take the actor back to his boyish Cry Baby’ face however It’s all post-production visual effects and after a decade of refining the process since Brad Pitt ran the gamut of time in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button it’s becoming commonplace in major Hollywood movies Depp is just the latest mega-star to get the drastic de-aging treatment on screen joining the ranks of Robert Downey Jr (in Captain America: Civil War) Michael Douglas (in Ant-Man) Kurt Russell (in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2) and scores of others getting digital facelifts to play younger versions of themselves In the old days a lucky unknown lookalike (or look enough alike) could have scored the part of young Jack Sparrow or Tony Stark Now if the film has the budget the stars get to have it both ways _ and audiences get a nostalgic flashback Lola Visual Effects is responsible for Depp’s transformation and most of the Marvel tricks which have included making Chris Evans scrawny for the original Captain America and Hayley Atwell some 70 years older for the sequel Lola was the pioneer behind Benjamin Button” too and sells their services to all the major studios It’s one of a handful of vendors that have gotten in the so-called “beauty work” business It’s often meant to go unnoticed (like removing a blemish) and is generally buried under mountains of confidentiality agreements In the case of Depp and most of Lola’s de-aging work the process starts with capturing a performance from the actor and then manipulating it This isn’t always necessary _ Rogue One recreated the late Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin without him and Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia using doubles _ but it was critical for Pirates of The Carribean “No one else can be Jack Sparrow” said Gary Brozenich the Oscar-nominated VFX artist who oversaw visual effects for the film “Trying to do a digital approximation … audiences would see right through it” Brozenich and the filmmakers decided to bring Depp back to how he looked around the time of 21 Jump Street’ and Cry Baby and went through a number of iterations over the course of six months to arrive at the perfect age (roughly 26) _ which Depp Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer had to sign off on The final shots of which there are 20-25 took about 15 artists a year of work That Depp has been famous since that age was both a blessing and a curse for the production They had numerous reference points to work with but so would the audience “Working on the human face is one of the if not the most challenging thing to do” said Trent Claus the visual effects supervisor for Lola VFX “People can tell when there is something amiss Even if they can’t put their finger on what is wrong they can tell that something is wrong” And while the artists have gotten better over the years and have mostly managed to avoid drifting into the dreaded uncanny valley _ the term used to describe the eerie feeling you get when looking at a digital person who is near-lifelike but not quite enough _ there are still trouble spots “One of the things that we struggle with is the bottom of the chin As you get older there tends to be a lot of sag and extra skin that develop underneath the jaw” Claus said “It is unfortunately not just a simple task of removing the wrinkles because the skin isn’t going to be responding the same as it did when you were younger You have to change not only the way it looks on the outside but how it moves and reacts to movement and expressions” To counteract this productions will often shoot a younger double to mimic an actor’s performance which they will use as a reference point for how the younger skin should behave and look in certain lights “We’re constantly fighting making it look lifelike One of the advantages of the process that we use is by keeping the original actor we have that starting point of life of reality” Claus said It makes the whole process harder but “It’s worth it” Reactions lately have been mixed ranging from nostalgic delight and “how’d they do that” curiosity to dismay and wariness about its future New York Magazine critic David Edelstein wrote that the “recreations” are “far more disturbing in their real-world implications than the fictional destruction of planets and galaxies” For New York Times critic Manohla Dargis Russell’s younger visage was “weird” and “disrupting” “It makes you contemplate whether this Benjamin Button-style age-reversing is going to become an increasingly standard (and creepy) industry practice” she wrote Pirates 5 co-director Espen Sandberg isn’t as dark about it “For me it’s just another storytelling tool and I think it’s really cool” he said And for the VFX artists it’s only the beginning “Right now what we’re using it for is a very nuts and bolts solution to a problem There’s a different and more creative future for it” Brozenich said “There can be even crazier more creative uses for it … maybe a hybrid of several actors” Also read:Baywatch drowns at US box office but Priyanka Chopra refuses to accept limitations see photos He thinks the next step is a digital character that plays a larger

good times and in bad This tournament began with the players on strike and refusing to train for two days because of a dispute with officials over bonus payments Then all of the Congo players stood together in protest On Tuesday they all stood together in celebration lining up on the sideline in front of their fans to shimmy and shake every time they scored at Stade de Port-Gentil Congo is most likely to play Ghana or Egypt in the quarterfinals a game in which they might have been written off a few years ago Not now “We are going to keep going you know” Congo midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu said “When we started this tournament no one would have bet on us We’re a surprise We want to go to the final It’s going to be tough … but we have quality players” Congo led Togo in Port-Gentil with a first-half goal from Junior Kabananga who has scored in every one of Congo’s games at the tournament Ndombe Mubele lobbed over Togo substitute goalkeeper Cedric Mensah for a 2-0 lead early in the second half Togo with only a long shot at qualifying for the quarters pulled it back to 2-1 through Kodjo Fo-Doh Laba Congo confirmed itself as group winner and a team to watch when Paul-Jose Mpoku struck a sweet free kick that soared toward the right corner of the goal and bounced down off the crossbar and over the goal-line A few of the Congo players stopped and looked at the linesman to be sure the ball crossed the line but not Mpoku He was already heading off to the edge of the field to start the dancing For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsNew Delhi

best teams in one domestic tournament are granted direct entry and actual champions from elsewhere are forced to jostle for two meagre spots qualification fist-fightswhy call it the Champions League T20 in the first place Where Trinidad & Tobago are still not considered champion material good enough for direct entry despite having been one of the Champions League T20s few success stories Not to forget among the most successful T20 teams in the world and home to eight of the present World T20 champions But its probably too idealistic to expect any different when a tournaments ownership rests in the hands of an exclusive bunch of countries-50 per cent with the BCCI In fact so uneven is its playing fieldthat the Champions League T20 (CLT20) ends up tripping on its own feet The concept of the CLT20 itself is not a bad one The amalgamation of the T20 champions from around the world fighting it out for the prize of being crowned the best The CLT20s bane though has been the skewed concentration of power And the time might well be nigh for the International Cricket Council (ICC) to take over the reins and turn it into a nonpartisan world championshipespecially with the franchise format having replaced regional T20 tournaments in most parts of the world already The ICCs involvement will not only depreciate the bullying power of the present stakeholders of the CLT20it will also ensure that the English counties-who are unlikely to return to the CLT20 having opted out from the 2013 event for now-are retained With a window for the CLT20 already present in their future tours programmethe time may have come for the ICC to throw their weight around and take ownership so that the tournament actually merits the Champions League title Bharat is a senior correspondent based in
