in Iraqi Kurdistan’s capital Erbil marks a significant step forward for New Delhi’s diplomatic engagement with conflict-torn West Asia Long having held back because of concerns that opening a consulate would be seen as giving diplomatic recognition to the quasi-autonomous region’s aspirations for independence New Delhi’s move marks a welcome recognition of changing realities First Iraqi Kurdistan is an economically vibrant region that provides jobs to tens of thousands of Indians and opportunity to several companies Then though its decision to sell oil has brought it into conflict with Baghdad the fact remains that the region’s energy resources are of long-term interest to India Finally Iraqi Kurdistan is the key launchpad for the global campaign against the Islamic State — and long after the fall of the so-called Islamic State will remain an important partner for India in the struggle against other jihadist organisations like al Qaeda The presence of an Indian consulate in Erbil thus opens the door for India to initiate contact with institutions and groups critical to its long-term economic and security interests — something far more important than a dogmatic respect for the sovereignty of an Iraqi state torn apart by ethnic and religious schisms The time taken by New Delhi to establish a diplomatic presence in Erbil points to a larger malaise: The anaemic resources India has to engage with the violent and chaotic region to its West on which so much of its economic fortunes and energy security rest India’s intelligence services and the military are desperately short of West Asia language and area expertise; so too is the ministry of external affairs Following the kidnapping of Indian workers after the fall of Mosul India was left floundering dependent on unreliable interlocutors in Baghdad and Istanbul Larger crises will have more severe impacts unless these deficits are addressed through a programme of institutional capacity building For decades India assumed that order in the region would be maintained by the United States which propped up the system of authoritarian rulers who ran it That premise is no longer valid The preeminent global power is ever-less reliant on West Asian hydrocarbons for its energy In the future China and India may find they have to do more to secure their own interests The time to start preparing for that uncertain future is today For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Alaka Sahani | Published: April 4 2017 12:04 am Actor Julie Andrews Top News MORE than half a century after actor Julie Andrews’s widely popular and eponymous role in Mary Poppins (1964) as a magical nanny and her appearance as Maria von Trapp the free-spirited governess in The Sound of Music (1965) she is training a bunch of adorable preschoolers in a Netflix show called Julie’s Greenroom for their Broadway debut As the teacher “Miss Julie” she is introducing preschoolers — who are actually muppets created by Jim Henson Company and known as “Greenies” on the show that debuted recently — to “the magic of performing arts” Fondly referred to as “super nanny” Andrews is probably the best person to introduce arts to tiny tots through the 13-part series where each episode highlights certain aspects of performing arts The 81-year-old who made her Broadway debut at the age of 19 with The Boy Friend (1954) says “There is no better way to teach children about teamwork communication skills or problem-solving abilities than by introducing them to arts When introduced to arts early they can get curious and be passionate about these subjects when they get older If you wait for too long they might assume they are never going to be good at those things” Not just Andrews but a number of her prominent guests on the show including actor Alec Baldwin singer-songwriter Edina Menzel and musician Josh Gobran too appear enthusiastic to train this posse oftalented muppets During the interview held in New York Andrews who has co-created the series with her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton a theatre director and author of children’s books appeared excited About the process of writing for the show she says that she tries to visualise the scenes for each 30-minute episode as she puts them down on paper “What if this was a film and had music — would the opening be pastoral with a quite moment before the story begins or would it be a fanfare” says the sprightly actor who is clad in a black top with a colourful scarf thrown around her neck And more often than not she goes for “fanfare” For example some of the stories written by her open with the rooster crowing on the roof to announce that it is morning and people need to wake up The iconic actor has in the past said that writing helped her come to terms with the loss of her singing voice due to a throat operation in 1997 and even called writing books “an extension of her singing voice” However it was not easy writing for puppets “We would imagine things that puppets could do on the show and be told by the team later that we can’t carry that out because puppeteers move in a certain way” says Hamilton According to Andrews puppeteers contributed immensely to the show with their suggestions “The puppeteers are below the stage level and have to raise their arms to manipulate the puppets looking at the camera during the shoot While working on the show I didn’t think of the human underneath For me the puppets are alive” says the actor who wants children to find their “inner star” Andrews who has worked on a slew of television shows over the decades conceived the show with her daughter in December 2015 Soon after they were looking at puppet sketches By May 2016 they finished writing the script and started the production work a couple of months later The mother-daughter duo has been collaborating on a number of projects and they believe they have “very different strengths” “While I am more inclined towards structure paying attention to the nuts and bolts my mother will come up with great ideas She will wake up in the middle of the night and say: ‘We need a duck’ She will have that great one line which makes everyone laugh a dramatic opening sequence or closing line to the chapter” recounts Hamilton Sipping on her tea Andrews impishly adds that she can be “impatient” while her daughter is more “tactful” Even as Andrews takes on new roles she remains much-loved as Mary Poppins and Maria von Trapp for generations of viewers Talking about these landmark characters she sounds reflective and modest “I have always known that those were the most phenomenal roles that I could have had I didn’t make those films I am lucky that I was asked to do those roles Then I had to do the required learning and wondered if I would be good enough I still have those doubts I have been blessed more than anyone I can imagine because I was offered all those wonderful things” adds the legend
