reflect a maturing polity When the demand for a separate stateof Telangana was revived in the last decade the initial response from the Congressand other parties was to propose a third SRC that could explore the bifurcation of APand also look at other demands for statehood A trifurcation of Uttar Pradesh and the possibility of a Vidarbha state would also have been on the discussion table had the UPA government followed that route Instead the Congress gave in to the tug and pull of short-term political compulsions in the state The Telangana demand was underpinned by a yearning for development and an assertion of sub-regional identity But competing political interests and the Centre’s ad hoc approach turned the movement into an impassioned mobilisation The political whirl reduced the Justice Srikrishna panel set up by the Centre in 2010 to work on the statehood claim to a mere academic exercise as the two regions rapidly moved apart Demands for new states will continue to be made

assisted and stood aside through the band’s swift historic transformation from rowdy club act to musical and cultural revolutionaries has died his management said Wednesday He was 90 “We can confirm that Sir George Martin passed away peacefully at home yesterday evening” Adam Sharp a founder of CA Management said Wednesday in an email He called Martin “one of music’s most creative talents and a gentleman to the end” He said Martin started producing records for EMI’s Parlophone label in 1950 working on comedy recordings with Peter Sellers Spike Milligan and others Martin had his first No 1 hit in 1961 with The Temperance Seven and with The Beatles “helped revolutionize the art of popular music recording” “In a career that spanned seven decades he was an inspiration to many and is recognised globally as one of music’s most creative talents” Sharp saidToo modest to call himself the “Fifth Beatle” a title many felt he deserved the tall elegant Londoner produced some of the most popular and influential albums of modern times _ “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” “Revolver” “Rubber Soul” “Abbey Road” _ elevating rock LPs from ways to cash in on hit singles to art forms “concepts” He won six Grammys and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999 Three years earlier he was knighted Martin both witnessed and enabled the extraordinary changes of the Beatles and of the 1960s From a raw first album in 1962 that took just a day to make to the months-long production of “Sgt Pepper” the Beatles advanced by quantum steps as songwriters and sonic explorers They not only composed dozens of classics from “She Loves You” to “Hey Jude” but turned the studio into a wonderland of tape loops multi-tracking unpredictable tempos unfathomable segues and kaleidoscopic montages Never again would rock music be defined by two-minute love songs or guitar-bass-drums arrangements Lyrically and musically anything became possible “Once we got beyond the bubblegum stage the early recordings and they wanted to do something more adventurous they were saying `What can you give us”’ Martin told The Associated Press in 2002” And I said `I can give you anything you like”’ Besides the Beatles Martin worked with Jeff Beck Elton John Celine Dion and on several solo albums by Paul McCartney In the 1960s Martin produced hits by Cilla Black Gerry and the Pacemakers and Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas and for 37 straight weeks in 1963 a Martin recording topped the British charts Martin started producing records for EMI’s Parlophone label in 1950 working on comedy recordings with Peter Sellers Spike Milligan and others Sharp said Martin had his first No 1 hit in 1961 with The Temperance Seven But his legacy was defined by the Beatles for the contributions he made and for those he didn’t When he first took on the Liverpool group Martin was very much in charge choosing “Love Me Do” as their first single and initially confining the newly-hired Ringo Starr to tambourine (a slight the drummer never quite got over) But during a time when the young were displacing the old Martin would find his own role upstaged Before the Beatles producers such as Phil Spector and Berry Gordy controlled the recording process choosing the arrangements and musicians; picking and sometimes writing the songs (or claiming credit for them) The Beatles led by the songwriting team of McCartney and John Lennon became their own bosses relying on Martin not for his vision but for what he could do for theirs They were among the first rock groups to compose their own material and inspired by native genius a world’s tour of musical influences and all the latest stimulants they demanded new sounds Martin was endlessly called on to perform the impossible and often succeeded splicing recordings at different speeds for “Strawberry Fields Forever” or for “Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite” simulating a calliope with keyboards harmonica and a harmonium that the producer himself played with such intensity he passed out on the floor Martin would have several good turns on the keyboards performing a lively music hall solo on McCartney’s “Lovely Rita” and a speeded-up Baroque reverie on Lennon’s “In My Life” His bearing was infinitely more patrician than that of the Fab Four but he grew up working class Born in north London in 1926 Martin was a carpenter’s son raised in a three-room flat without a kitchen bathroom or electricity He was a gifted musician who mastered Chopin by ear a born experimenter enchanted whenever he discovered a new chord In demand as a producer long before he met the Beatles he was a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music studying composition and orchestration and performance on the oboe and piano “Music was pretty well my whole life” Martin wrote in his memoir “All You Need is Ears” published in 1980 Hired by the EMI division Parlophone in 1950 Martin initially worked on classical recordings with the London Baroque Ensemble The technology was primitive with recording on wax cylinders with machines which weren’t driven by electricity but by weights In 1955 aged 29 Martin became head of Parlophone He worked with Judy Garland jazz stars Stan Getz Cleo Laine and John Dankworth By the early 1960s Parlophone was fading and Martin was anxious to break into the pop market when a Liverpool shopkeeper and music manager Brian Epstein insisted that he listen to a local quartet the Beatles The band already had been turned down by Decca Records and told that “guitar groups are on the way out” Martin was also unimpressed by their music but to his eternal fortune was pushed into signing them by EMI executive LG Wood Martin saw the Beatles as “very attractive people” He was more than a decade older than any of the band members and like an indulgent parent tolerated and often enjoyed their sassy humor On the first day in the studio Martin lectured the Beatles on their weaknesses then asked if there was anything they didn’t like First of all George Harrison reportedly quipped “I don’t like your tie” The backtalk was also professional After the Beatles had a modest hit with “Love Me Do” Martin recommended they follow with a light pop track “How Do You Do It” To Martin’s surprise the gand insisted on Lennon-McCartney’s “Please Please Me” originally written as a slow Roy Orbison-styled lament Martin’s response typified his perceptive and flexible approach He agreed to the song with one condition _ they speed it up The result was a rush of energy and power their first smash and the beginning of a phenomenon soon dubbed “Beatlemania” “Gentlemen” Martin informed the band after “Please Please Me” had been recorded “you have just made your first number one record” The Beatles seemed to reinvent themselves with each album and sometimes each song The single “I Feel Fine” was among the first records to include guitar feedback while Harrison’s sitar on Lennon’s “Norwegian Wood” introduced millions of listeners to Eastern sounds Their lyrics especially Lennon’s became more personal and sophisticated and sometimes surreal The Beatles none of whom could read music depended on Martin’s classical background They might hum a melody to the producer who would translate it into a written score as he did for a trumpet solo on McCartney’s “Penny Lane” For McCartney’s “Yesterday” Martin convinced the composer that a string quartet would serve the song’s tender remorse Martin initially didn’t share in the Beatles’ massive wealth drawing a staff salary from EMI But in 1965 he left to help form an independent company Associated Independent Recordings The Beatles agreed to keep working with him on a freelance basis leading Martin to boast that “I suppose I am now earning more than the managing director of EMI records” He was otherwise unaffected by the madness keeping his lifestyle clean and his attire businesslike His naivety led to some comical moments in the studio like the night that Lennon high on LSD complained of feeling ill An unsuspecting Martin ordered Lennon brought up to the roof a dangerous place for an acid-head The Beatles began to break apart after “Sgt Pepper” released in 1967 and Martin’s contributions would also peak Responding to The Band and other American groups the Beatles turned against their own studio tricks and preached a more basic sound Their double “White” album was far more spare and individual Beatles essentially served as producers for their own songs The album’s length was also a rebuke against Martin; he had urged them to put out a single record saying there wasn’t enough good material for two For “Let It Be” a self-conscious effort to reclaim their early magic they rejected Martin altogether turning over the tapes to Spector After “Let It Be” an unhappy process for all involved Martin assumed he was done with the Beatles but they asked him back for “Abbey Road” Released in the fall of 1969 it was their final slickest record capped by an extended suite of song fragments The band officially split the following year Artistically Martin would never approach such heights again But he did manage commercial success with such pop acts as America and the Little River Band and produced two top James Bond themes _ Shirley Bassey’s “Goldfinger” and McCartney’s “Live and Let Die” Martin had intended the production and scoring of Elton John’s “Candle In The Wind `97” a tribute to the late Princess Diana to be his last single But in 2000 he produced “1” a multimillion-selling compilation of Beatles’ No 1 songs then followed with a six-CD retrospective of his recording career Martin was married twice and had two children actor Gregory Paul Martin and record producer Giles Martin with whom his father remixed Beatles music for a 2006 Cirque du Soleil’s production “Love” In his later years Martin _ with his fine white hair and beautifully tailored clothes _ was a treasured figure on Britain’s music scene He played a prominent role at Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee concerts in 2002 leading a cheer of “hip hip hooray” in her honor and was sometimes seen at Royal Festival Hall when Brian Wilson performed His career exacted a price _ Martin’s hearing was badly damaged _ and left him with a few regrets He wished he had paid more attention to Harrison’s songs but acknowledged that Lennon-McCartney was an impossible act to top And he learned that the Beatles no matter how irresistible worked best in English In Martin’s memoir he recalled demanding that the Beatles record a pair of hits “She Loves You” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand” in German appealing to a country where the group had performed often in its early years The Beatles were enraged and refused even to show up for the session The usually patient producer hurried over to their hotel stormed into their room and chewed them out as band members fled and then repented “One by one Beatle faces appeared from Beatle hiding-places looking like naughty school boys with sheepish smiles” Martin wrote And so they came to the studio the next day and taped “Sie liebt dich” and “Komm gib mir deine Hand” which proved no catchier than their titles “But of course they were right” Martin wrote “Beatles records in English were to sell in millions in every country Germany included Never again did they make a record in a foreign language” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express AppBy: PTI | New Delhi | Published: November 30 2016 7:00 pm Parthiv Patel believes

costly collisions in five races (Source: AP) Top News Lewis Hamilton need fear no boos or whistles at Silverstone this weekend but the Formula One world champion cannot escape the fallout from Austria as he chases a fourth British Grand Prix victory The Mercedes driver was jeered after he won in Spielberg last Sunday following a last-lap collision with team mate Nico Rosberg who limped home fourth with his overall lead cut to 11 points The abuse could be explained by the German presence in the crowd with stewards punishing Rosberg for causing the collision as Hamilton attempted to seize the lead READ:Niki Lauda claims Lewis Hamilton ‘destroyed’ his dressing room post Bakucrash Silverstone is sure to be different with many of the 140000 at the old airfield being there to cheer on the home hero who has won for the past two years The threat of ‘team orders’ hangs over proceedings however with Mercedes bosses meeting to discuss what to do after two costly collisions in five races Even if they decide on nothing more than another warning the drivers can expect their every move on the track — and body language off it — to be closely monitored and analysed With the season approaching the halfway point and a rush of three races before the summer break passions are rising and the battle intensifying If the drivers are ordered to hold station at a certain point then the crowd may feel robbed As Hamilton said after Spielberg: “My fans feel what I’m feeling and it’s why I have such a connection with them “Team orders is not something that should deprive them “Even if it’s the other way around and I’m racing and the other guy’s coming for me that’s racing and why you turn up and you sit in the mud in the camper van in Silverstone and why you buy that cap because you’re with that passion and that fire” The solution Hamilton suggested is to give Rosberg as little chance as possible and he will aim to do that on Sunday at a circuit where last year the Briton won from pole position and set the fastest lap “As a competitor I’ve got to get on pole and lead the whole way” he said “That’s what I have to do for the fans that’s my solution It’s a lot of pressure but that’s my goal” “I’m massively driven” added Hamilton “I want it as much if not more than I’ve wanted my other world championships and I actually love that it’s even harder to get because that makes you appreciate it more” Rosberg will see it equally as a chance to turn the tables Denied a hat-trick of Austrian wins he can end Hamilton’s bid for three in a row at home Both will have to watch out for Red Bull and Ferrari “The way the car has been working this year we should be pretty competitive at Silverstone” said Red Bull’s Australian Daniel Ricciardo “I think it will be really close with
