Barack Obama said he was “overwhelmed” by the “extraordinary” welcome he had received upon his arrival in New Delhi We were equally overwhelmed If he received red carpet treatment from Palam Airport to the ITC Maurya and Rashtrapati Bhavan from Hyderabad House to Rajpath and Siri Fort we received carpet coverage of his three-day visit Why we even had to “watch” his Mann Ki Baat with Prime Minister Narendra Modi because all TV news channels aired it Who watches a radio show We did to count how often during the half-hour broadcast Obama was hailed as “Barack” by “Mr Prime Minister” (six times) as he referred to Modi Elsewhere news channels discovered — or planted — people from Loni (Uttar Pradesh) to Chennai Bangalore and Kolkata around transistor radios Some stared at the instrument as if it was from another planet like in PK Others admired their footwear and mobiles or adjusted their clothes By Tuesday night they didn’t know what there was left to say about the non-stop “NamObama” show India TV’s reporter in Mohali watched the radio broadcast with three women: “What did you like” he asked them when it ended A young woman said Obama’s “dedication” to his daughters her mother () buried her face in her shoulder and the third ran away “As you can see” he reported straight-faced “yeh kaafi inspired hain”’ Don’t know about the ladies but news channels certainly were inspired They danced about the first couple () of India and the US rather like the joyous cartoons of Modi and his cabinet on Aaj Tak’s So Sorry But this was serious business: each channel was there to outshoot the others On Sunday CNN-IBN had “exclusive” footage of the Obamas’ convoy to the Maurya Headlines Today had Obama’s first soundbyte at Rashtrapati Bhavan — as it never tired of telling or showing us Times Now saw two armchairs on the lawns of Hyderabad House before the others did And NDTV 24×7 and Times Now “first” reported the tracking clause in the nuclear deal had been removed None could equal DD News It had live and exclusive footage of the entire Obama visit — including its favourite annual Republic Day On January 26 DD News boasted of 24 HD cameras for a “visual treat” Well treat it would have been had it not rained on the parade Our DD commentators were quick-witted: they immediately attached celestial significance to the drizzle on our honoured foreign guests: “It’s most auspicious” intoned one “The heavens gently send down their blessings” added another Reduce the duration of the parade and it will be a visual treat The march past is fine but the tableaux and dance performances down Rajpath are not a TV spectacle — it a “path” in Hindi and English not a stage Many spectators picked out by one of the 24 HD cameras didn’t seem to mind though In particular the camera caught ministers — Venkaiah Naidu Nirmala Sitharaman Prakash Javadekar Suresh Prabhu and Smriti Irani — give standing ovations to whatever went past them Perhaps someone should have reminded Michelle Obama that she was on live television Most of the time she was seen in animated conversation with the vice president’s wife Salma Ansari Bet they were not discussing the 75 decorative items (so DD said) on the mounted camels In an earlier life we watched the Republic Day parade listened to patriotic songs on the radio (yes the radio) then curled up with a patriotic film (Manoj Kumar) our eyes filled with national “pride” as did Modi’s (Rahul Kanwal Headlines Today) We’d done our patriotic duty at least until August 15 Now entertainment TV runs its normal scheduled soaps as though January 26 was another ordinary day So please salute Zee TV for a Happy New Year starring the superstar Obama named in his Siri Fort speech — Shah Rukh Khan There were other visual treats even the one DD’s HD cameras did not immediately discern: Narendra Damodardas Modi’s pinstripes; President Pranab Mukherjee dwarfed by Obama’s 6-foot height and Modi’s 56-inch chest; Sonia Gandhi looking everywhere but in front of her at the president’s banquet with the PM opposite her The sour grapes in the mouths of Congressmen (Anand Sharma) on the nuclear agreement And there was

Express Web Desk | Updated: September 2 2017 8:24 pm Coutinho has been linked with a move to Barcelona (Source: AP File) Top News Barcelona abandoned their hopes of signing Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool after the Merseyside club demanded 200 million euros ($23714 million) for the Brazil attacking midfielder the Liga side’s director Albert Soler said on Saturday The Spanish transfer window shut on Friday night with Barcelona failing to add to their signings of Ousmane Dembele Nelson Semedo Gerard Deulofeu and Paulinho despite coach Ernesto Valverde stating publicly he wanted a stronger squad after losing Neymar to Paris St Germain for a world record fee of 222 million euros According to reports in the Spanish media Barca made a late bid to try and land Angel Di Maria from PSG although their main target remained Coutinho who Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp repeatedly insisted was not for sale “Late last night Liverpool priced the player we wanted at 200 million euros and we decided we would not do it” Soler told a news conference on Saturday “It’s a sign of the new era of football one which isn’t led by clubs Something has to change we won’t play along with this new way of understanding football We didn’t want to risk the patrimony of the club a club of 150000 members which needs to be managed coherently and responsibly “We are in a market where you pay 50 million for a goalkeeper We will not play along with a market that may not have lost its way entirely but something has changed This board will not put the club at risk” Liverpool did not publicly respond on Saturday but a source familiar with the situation said Barcelona’s claim was false and that no value was put on Coutinho because he was never for sale Liverpool maintain that Barcelona were always aware of this Soler said Barca’s main problem in trying to acquire new players was that other clubs were trying to get more money out of them following Neymar’s world record sale He also said football was changing as now wealthy countries rather than the clubs themselves were calling the shots PSG who are owned by Qatar Sports Investments not only acquired the services of Neymar but also signed France forward Kylian Mbappe considered the most valuable young player in the world on a season-long loan “PSG came to us with 222 million (for Neymar) and that meant everyone knew we had money When you go to the market and you have a lot of money the demands made of you are extortionate We found ourselves in unbelievable situations” added Soler “What has happened in the market this year takes us to a model of football different to the one we are used to We used to be the ones that lead the market and now countries and investment funds are leading it Countries have become the main agents in the football world” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Manish Raj | New Delhi | Published: June 22 2017 2:27 am Delhi
