centre square was re-laid in the lead-up to the World T20 last year (Source: PTI) Related News After two days of rain and gloom as the sun started playing peek-a-boo around Wednesday mid-morning and the Eden Gardens ground staff began rolling up the pitch covers the green tinge on the pitch became discernible even from the upper tier of the Club House The Australian team had arrived for their pre-match practice session and although the outfield was still too damp to allow any action the visitors had a good look at the wicket before heading toward the CAB indoors About an hour and a half later when Steve Smith turned up for press conference he could barely conceal his surprise “(The grass) is probably more than I have seen in India for a while” said the Australia captain with a note of caution: “I will have another look tomorrow see what the weather is doing see if there are any changes to the wicket The curator might roll it a bit more or cut it” Smith would be delighted to know that the grass is likely to stay offering some lateral movement to fast bowlers early on The surface might be a little sluggish with variable bounce because of sweating and the moisture underneath But bottom line is that the pitch might allow Australia to play to their strength; pace Twelve years ago then CAB curator Prabir Mukherjee had laid out a green-top at this venue for an ODI against South Africa India were bundled out for 188 against Shaun Pollock and company and the Saffers won the game by 10 wickets with 141 overs to spare The grassy pitch was supposedly Mukherjee’s response to Sourav Ganguly’s ouster from the Indian team under Greg Chappell Ganguly is now the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president and a popular theory here surrounding the pitch this time hinted at a reported ego tussle between him and Team India head coach Ravi Shastri But the fact of the matter is that a green pitch is certainly not a carry-over effect of the reported differences between the two former India captains The Eden pitch has changed its character after the whole centre square was re-laid in the lead-up to the World T20 last year “Now you require a certain amount of grass on the pitch every time Otherwise the top soil would disintegrate” explained a ground staff The Test against New Zealand played from September 30 to October 3 last year was an example India won by 178 runs in a low-scoring affair Fast bowlers accounted for 26 scalps both teams combined Bhuvneshwar Kumar took a five-for in New Zealand’s first innings Seamers revelled in friendly conditions in the Ranji Trophy as well with teams struggling to put up 200-plus totals In an IPL match here this term the fabled Royal Challengers Bangalore batting had folded for 49 inside 10 overs against Kolkata Knight Riders’ pace with Coulter-Nile Chris Woakes and Colin de Grandhomme taking three wickets apiece Australia have won only one of their last 10 ODIs overseas against Ireland On the face of it Eden pitch provides them with an opportunity to improve their record and level the ongoing series In Pat Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile they have two excellent fast bowlers who used the extra bounce at Chepauk brilliantly bowling in the corridor Coulter-Nile’s three wickets upfront rattled the Indian top order Then again from 87 for five the hosts recovered to post 281 for seven in 50 overs which attested their batting depth Also India have enough fast-bowling wherewithal to put the opposition under pressure Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah’s current form is keeping even the likes of Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav in the reserve bench Most importantly this Indian team doesn’t get intimidated by green-tops Australia rather have some batting problems to solve The Test loss against Bangladesh highlighted their travails against spin And in Chennai they lost nine wickets in 21 overs in a truncated game A top-heavy batting lineup on paper heavily dependent on David Warner and Smith and bereft of a settled No 4 – doesn’t inspire much confidence Smith’s milestone Smith would play his 100th ODI on Thursday and he spoke about his evolution as a white-ball cricketer “I think I have evolved a lot as a white-ball player When I first started playing one-day cricket my first 30-odd games I played more as a bowler I had to change a bit there I have been batting at No3 for a while now I had to find the right tempo for the game whether it’s hitting boundaries or finding the right time to hit a boundary You learn as you play” The Aussie skipper however has only one half-century — 56 against England at Birmingham in June — in his last five ODI innings But as Kuldeep Yadav said Smith is still the toughest to bowl at “He (Smith) reads you well He has idea about (getting) singles He prefers to play around leg stump” the young chinaman bowler observed India too don’t have a settled No 4 and the team management is now backing Manish Pandey for the slot But having Virat Kohli at No3 and a rejuvenated MS Dhoni down the order is a big advantage Both raise their game in adverse conditions; when the team is under pressure If the wicket stays seamer-friendly the second ODI on Thursday could well be a fascinating contest between two great modern era batsmen – Smith and Kohli Live on Star Sports 1& HD1: 1:30PM For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related

drown in waves of blood/ How can I abandon the home of my beloved)The bloody events of Partition overshadowed Independence Far from being an event in the distant past Partition is a process that continues to unfold Drawing a line across a map did not take into account the myriad ways in which Partition could actually never end The messy and complicated migration of people would prevent this and indeed ultimately questions were bound to arise about how language culture history and indeed families the carriers of human experiences can be partitioned My family underwent an internal partition like many other families Ten years after 1947 my grandfather became a Pakistani citizen My grandmother and father remained Indian citizens Following the Indo-Pak war in 1965 a legal category called “Enemy Property” came into force Under the Enemy Property Act 1968 properties of citizens belonging to the “enemy” country were taken over by the governments of both India and Pakistan and temporarily vested in a custodian By this time my grandfather was a Pakistani citizen still holding property in India This too was declared enemy property In September 1965 my grandmother and other family members were summarily thrown out of their own home Hostilities ceased peace treaties were signed but the enemy property law continued to exist The intention of the original act was to maintain and preserve the properties during the war The 1968 act upholds the title of the original owner This was subsequently confirmed by many courts of law My grandfather died in London in 1973 and my father his only son claimed his inheritance as an Indian citizen The next 30 years of his life were spent battling for his rights as an Indian citizen A legal odyssey began in the civil court of Lucknow passed through the High Court of Bombay and ended in the Supreme Court (SC) Each court reinforced earlier orders and categorically upheld an Indian citizen’s right to inherit his father’s properties Finally in 2005 the SC restored the properties to my father and held that a citizen’s rights could not be usurped in this manner and deemed the government’s possession of the properties illegal since 1973 Importantly the government had even appealed the SC judgment in 2005 but its appeal was rejected Citizenship has always had a fraught relationship with property ownership but the battle was equally about a principle about removing the blemish of “enemy” with all its alienating implications Five years after losing the case in the SC the government suddenly brought in an ordinance in 2010 seeking to retrospectively change the original act of 1968 The 2010 ordinance lapsed and the original act remained unchanged along with all the judgments that were based on it However properties that had been restored following the SC order were summarily retaken as enemy property in August 2010 Thus a new legal journey began Once more the stigma of “enemy” reared its head We went from court to court seeking justice More than five years passed when suddenly on the very day (January 7 2016) that our matter was listed for final hearing in the SC we learnt that yet another ordinance had been promulgated The new ordinance/ bill is more draconian than the one in 2010 It retrospectively rewrites the act of 1968 and renders all judgments made on the basis of the original act null and void It seeks to undo decades of legal proceedings with little care for all the effort that countless Indians had spent on getting justice Essentially it closes the door to judicial recourse and transforms a “custodian” to “owner” as it mandates the government to sell all these properties However the most insidious aspect of the ordinance is that the very meaning of “enemy” has been redefined The definition of “enemy” now includes Indian citizens who happen to be the legal heirs of people who went to Pakistan Faced with a choice during Partition millions of Muslims opted to remain in India Sadly the new amendments make some Indian citizens’ identities wholly contingent on whether a relative went to Pakistan My father an astrophysicist by training and twice an MLA in Uttar Pradesh has spent most of his adult life battling for his rights He is fortunate to have been able to do sobut for lakhs of Indian citizens the door to the judiciary is shut through the new ordinance Indeed the reason for the promulgation of the ordinance has been that the custodian finds it difficult to do his job because of an increase in the number of legal cases related to “enemy property” As is inevitable over the years various vested interests have taken advantage of “enemy property” and indeed one effect of the new bill is to metaphorically “put a lid” on all matters related to it so that retrospectively since 1968 “enemy property” will no longer be subject to judicial scrutiny The custodian continues to designate new enemy properties today despite the fact that hostilities ceased decades ago In 2013 there were about 2100 properties and in 2015 over 15000 enemy properties Many properties are not owned by Muslims but by people from other communities who have bought them over the course of the last 40 years The ramifications of the bill will also undo their ownership Ironically while this has been happening I have been teaching undergraduates about the history of nationalism The day the Enemy Property (Amendment and Validation) Bill 2016 was being passed in the Lok Sabha we were discussing the idea of “strangers” as a political category Although my father is an Indian citizen and therefore cannot be deemed a foreigner the 2016 bill sees him and many thousands like him as strangers in their own country The writer 33 is assistant professor at

quantum computers Just as crystals have an atomic structure that repeats in space time crystals also have a structures that repeats in time They are kicked periodically sort of like tapping Jell-O

such a crystal and even predicted what the various phases surrounding the time crystal should be – akin to the liquid and gas phases of ice Researchers from the University of Maryland and Harvard University in the US followed Yao’s blueprint and have created the first-ever time crystals They are the first of a large class of new materials that are intrinsically out of equilibrium unable to settle down to the motionless equilibrium of for example a diamond or ruby “This is a new phase of matter period but it is also really cool because it is one of the first examples of non-equilibrium

added Read More: Scientists reveal how world’s biggest diamonds form The time crystal created by researchers at the University of Maryland employs a conga line of 10 ytterbium ions whose electron spins interact similar to the qubit systems being tested as quantum computers To keep the ions out of equilibrium they alternately hit them with one laser to create an effective magnetic field and a second laser to partially flip the spins of the atoms repeating the sequence many times Because the spins interacted the atoms settled into a stable repetitive pattern of spin flipping that defines a crystal Time crystals were first proposed in 2012 by Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek and last year theoretical physicists at Princeton University and UC Santa Barbara’s Station Q in the US independently proved that such a crystal could be made Also Read: Diamonds might power the next generation of Quantum computing According to Yao the UC Berkeley group was “the bridge between the theoretical idea and experimental implementation”From the perspective of quantum mechanics electrons can form crystals that do not match the underlying spatial translation symmetry of the orderly three-dimensional array of atoms Yao said This breaks the symmetry of the material and leads to unique and stable properties we define as a crystal A time crystal breaks time symmetry In this particular case the magnetic field and laser periodically driving the ytterbium atoms produce a repetition in the system at twice the period of the drivers something that would not occur in a normal system The study was
