3:50 pm Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the “Run for Rio” event at Major Dhyan Chand Stadium in New Delhi on Sunday (Source: PTI) Top News “Dil Jeet Ke Aao” These were Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s famous words to the Indian cricket team led by Sourav Ganguly that toured Pakistan in 2004 On Sunday more than twelve years later Prime Minister Narendra Modi used these very words immortalised by Vajpayee in a slightly different context — to cheer India’s Rio-bound Olympic contingent Flagging off the “Run to Rio” event at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium in the national capital Modi exuded confidence that the Indian contingent would put up a grand show at the Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro which begins on August 5 “Wherever our athletes go India is visible not only on the ground but in their conduct as well I am confident that these players will win hearts with their behaviour during the Games They will introduce the great Indian heritage to the world” Modi said The Prime Minister used the stage to question why babus were being paid a higher daily allowance than the Indian team “that brings glory to the nation” “Earlier the practice was that government officials accompanying the players used to get $100 per day while players were being paid half of that amount We have removed that disparity Everybody will now get the same amount of money” he added This is the first time in history that India will be sending an Olympic contingent that will have more than 100 players The Prime Minister reckoned the reason was because of the special emphasis laid down by his government WATCH VIDEO:PM Narendra Modi Flags Off “Run For Rio” Ahead Of Olympics “We have spent Rs 30 lakh to Rs 15 crore per player on the training Earlier the Olympic budget used to be around Rs 15 crore However understanding the gravity of the situation we have exceeded the budget this time around to upto Rs 125 crore” he explained Going forward Modi urged the youth to focus on sports and work harder so that India can send more than 200-member contingent to Tokyo for the 2020 Olympics “For the next Olympics in Tokyo I appeal to the youth to prepare hard from now onwards We must take a pledge to send more than 200 athletes to 2020 Olympics” he stated Modi was also excited at the prospect of the squad being sent in advance to the Olympics “Earlier the practice was that our players used to reach the venue two days ahead of the Games and it was always a daunting task for them to get acclimatized This time however we are sending them 15 days in advance” he noted Later in the day Modi while addressing the nation in the 22nd edition of his popular radio programme Mann Ki Baat said he was ready to don the mantle of a postman in sharing the good wishes of the countless citizens with India’s Rio-bound athletes “A sports ‘Mahakumbh’ is being organised Every country will watch its players closely and we too will do the same I am ready to send your messages to our players” he added

Even as parts of its walls are giving way the conservation and beautification of the historical Mahim fort remains a distant dream with authorities running into a series of hurdles in rehabilitating the more than 700 hutments inside the protected monument Recently a study presented to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation by the Observer Research Foundation (ORF) on the fort and the Mahim beach categorically stated that while parts of the fort wall have already collapsed continued neglect could lead to the entire structure giving way with fissures visible throughout “There is structural distress of the fort walls” the study report said Built nearly eight centuries ago by local king Pratap Bimb the Mahim Fort has an illustrious history Given its strategic location affording a view of the Arabian Sea it was an important war accessory Share This Article Related Article However now with more than 700 hutments inside and along it tidal erosion and water seepage in the walls the fort might not be able to stand tall any more the presentation has claimed To prevent this the ORF has sought rehabilitation of slum dwellers from the area and development of beach front as an open space for the city While the fort has been listed as grade-I heritage structure and a state-protected monument it suffers from a common problem in the city — too many agencies owning parcels of land in and around it There are bamboo godowns around the fort and it is mostly inaccessible through the narrow bylanes While the presentation was made before additional municipal commissioner Pallavi Darade she said such a project would require coordination by various agencies and cannot be taken up by the BMC alone “There are multiple agencies involved here such as the police central government state government etc The monument belongs to the state archaeology department we cannot on our own remove the structures within it If ORF gets all agencies on board we can call for a coordination meeting with them”she said According to sources the new development plan in fact earmarks the Mahim beach front for commercial and residential development According to principal secretary (tourism and culture) Valsa Nair-Singh while the state has cleaned up the area around the beach people living within the fort need to be provided alternative housing space a subject not theirs to deal with “There have been meetings with all agencies involved on what to do but till the hutments are removed there is not much that can be done in terms of preservation” she said Accepting that it is a sad state of affairs Nair-Singh said most of the long-term measures to save the fort are likely to remain on paper with only short-term measures such as a clean-up of the beach and stopping open defecation around the monument being implemented “We are working on showcasing other forts in Mumbai which do not face encroachment issues such as Sewri and Sion” she added Apart from its historical importance the Mahim fort offers a beautiful view of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link and small fishing boats dotting the waters on the Bandra side In the 16th century it was the site of frequent skirmishes between the Portuguese and a Gujarati ruler before the island of Mahim was captured by the Portuguese and later given as dowry to Charles II of England After the English gained control of the fort they strengthened it and turned it into a strategic watchtower against attacks According to some accounts the fort had 100 soldiers and 30 cannons at that time Today it has DTH antennas jutting out and
