Gajendra Yadav) Related News Name: Godfathers of Crime Face to Face with India’s Most Wanted By Sheela Raval Publisher: Hachette India No of pages: 276 Price: Rs 399 “When stories are told several times over they become myths and legends and the truth often gets hidden within layers In many ways this happened with the dons of Mumbai’s underworld” writes veteran investigative journalist Sheela Raval in her book Godfathers of Crime Face to Face with India’s Most Wanted Besides the police and intelligence agencies journalists reporting from Mumbai in the ’80s and ’90s were likely in the best position to track the organised criminal gangs operating in the city’s underbelly — their key players power structures alliances and unpredictable shifts in loyalties With nearly three decades of experience in print and television reportage investigative journalist Raval writes with authority about her interactions with Mumbai’s infamous dons — Dawood Ibrahim Chhota Shakeel Chhota Rajan Abu Salem Iqbal Mirchi Arun Gawli Ashwin Naik and Santosh Shetty While the meteoric rise of gangsters like Dawood and Rajan is quite well known and has been chronicled several times over what elevates Raval’s book from a run-of-the-mill narration are accounts of her personal interaction with these dons over three decades The rare degree of access enjoyed by Raval allows her to give insights into the “minds and personalities of these men” as she puts it Dawood Ibrahim’s insistence on maintaining tehzeeb — requesting for a glass of water politely from his help with a “Miyan ek glass paani pilaoge” — or an account from Abu Salem’s first wife Samira Jumani of Ibrahim’s apology for his brothers’ misbehaviour with her are instances that illustrate a keen desire in most gangsters to maintain a veneer of honour and respectability On her interactions in London with Iqbal Mirchi who started off as a petty dockyard pilferer in Mumbai and was later ranked among the top 50 global drug barons by the UN Raval writes “to me he appeared to be a restless man someone who craved social dignity which no money could buy him” Rather than limiting the story of Mumbai’s gangsters to their operations in the city alone Raval’s book traces her journeys from Mumbai to Bangkok Dubai Lisbon London New York Atlanta Morocco and Nepal to track down gangsters or their families Through this Raval also delves into the transnational narcotics and arms trade Dawood and Rajan expanded to and the deeper nexus of cooperation from “the most unlikely sources” such as spy agencies While Raval has not yet interviewed Dawood — though his right-hand man Shakeel has promised one in the future — she was the only journalist allowed at the closely monitored wedding reception of Dawood’s eldest daughter Mahrukh to Junaid the son of former Pakistani cricketer Javed Miandad at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Dubai on July 22 2005 Raval’s book begins with a gripping account of how she managed to enter the venue and spot Dawood seated in a cordoned-off section and the two exchanging greetings She also gives an account of her conversation with Chhota Rajan when the don was lying in a hospital bed in Bangkok soon after surviving an attempt on his life by D-gang sharpshooters in September 2000 Raval also writes about her multiple phone conversations with Chhota Shakeel over the years Written in a racy style Raval’s book is peppered with memorable anecdotes such as Mumbai’s only resident don Arun Gawli abruptly asking her to get up from a sofa during an interview in his stronghold Dangdi Chawl only to show her a hidden recess where he could hide An interesting facet of the book is Raval’s constant endeavour to balance herself on the “tightrope walk” as she describes it — to work strictly within professional limits while adhering to all legal parameters in her interactions with these gangsters “I am aware at all times that any tilt towards a particular side whether the criminals or the official forces could cost me dearly” she writes One episode of the book deals with tapes of her conversations with Shakeel being played out in court and her testimony in a case against the gangster

Baghdad talkslive telecasts and an impartial mediator could break the current impasse The latest round of Iranian nuclear negotiations held in Baghdad on May 23 and 24 between Iran and the P5+1 has ended with only one agreement that the parties to the talks will meet again in Moscow on June 18 The latest talks witnessed both parties persisting with their rigid stands While the world powers demanded that Iran first stop its uranium enrichment process before sanctions are liftedIran proposed its own five-point agenda While the agreement to continue the talks leaves some hopethe continued denial of any concession by all parties is a cause for concern Despite hope that the negotiating parties have bought time to work on facilitating a breakthroughthe history of the current stalemate reveals that they might give in to their not-so-noble agendas Although Iran has been bitten by sanctionsit may use the time to further enrich uranium at a faster pace On the other handIsrael has made no secret of its intention to act militarily to neutralise Irans nuclear capabilities An attack by Israel is likely to involve the USBritain and other European countries in the ensuing conflict Since the economies of these countries are in a shamblesthey may be delaying military action against Iran as that could further destabilise the world economy The substance of these talks appear non-negotiable Thuschange in their procedure may promise the desirable result Two inputs worth considering include live telecasts of the proceedings of the negotiationsand the involvement of a neutral mediating country to moderate them Due to the closed-door nature of the negotiation processfailures in the past have generated a blame-game where each party holds the other responsible for the failure Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejadin particularhas effectively used the opaqueness of such negotiations to his advantage in the past On the other handthe US has to avoid the mistakes it made before invading Iraq to regain some legitimacy in its actions vis-à-vis Iran Such problems could be solved by ensuring total transparency in these negotiationswhich could be ensured by the decision to telecast the proceedings live One may argue that it is against the norm to telecast diplomatic discussions on sensitive issues Howevermost of the information related to Irans nuclear programme that is available to diplomats outside Iran is also available to the wider world through the IAEA documents posted on its website The live telecast would only make public the stated positions of the conflicting parties for the world to see Iran should not have any objection to this proposition since it has always lamented that the West has been unfair to it The live telecast would enable it to substantiate its claims Similarlythe US should also agree to the proposition sincein its quest to isolate Iranit has needed the support of the world community The governments of the respective countries could help the US in the matter only if they have the mandate to do sowhich could be successfully obtained only if the masses of these countries are convinced that it is right to do so The absence of an impartial mediator is also a major factor in these talks getting stalled midwayjust like in Istanbul a year ago It is worth noting here that the current negotiations are being held between several conflicting parties without a mediator Among the constituents of P5+1the US has imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran The other constituents BritainFrance and Germany are party to the conflict due to their membership of the EUwhich has also imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran While the rest of the P5+1 Russia and China have not imposed unilateral sanctionsthey are seen as aiding Iran and therefore cannot be considered neutral Iranof courseis a conflicting party This leaves us to find yet another country that can be accepted as neutral by all conflicting parties This neutral country could then play the role of a mediator While it is wise to be concerned about the problem of nuclear proliferationit is equally pertinent to find its solution with due sincerity At a time when the world is facing severe economic crisis and the West Asian region is facing political turmoilanother military conflict in the oil rich Gulf would send the already burgeoning price of oil
