499 I must confess to being somewhat dismayed at the sight of Zafar Anjum’s Iqbal: The Life of a Poet Philosopher and Politician For me a near-perfect non-scholarly introduction to the poet’s life and work has long been Iqbal Singh’s The Ardent Pilgrim first published in 1951 with a revised reprint coming out in 1997 Singh a journalist of some repute made Iqbal accessible to the English reader and in elegant prose located Iqbal on the cusp of a change between tradition and modernity Over the years a series of academic works in English — most notably Annemarie Schimmel’s erudite Gabriel’s Wing: A Study Into the Religious Ideas of Muhammad Iqbal — have tried to grapple with the complexity of Iqbal’s oeuvre and the dualities and contradictions that make him a biographer’s delight But I have found none that match Singh’s simplicity and empathy Having said that it is undeniable that every age produces its own biographers of visionary men and women Zafar Anjum also a journalist like Singh has given us his reading of Iqbal’s life philosophy and politics There is little that is new here or not known to the Iqbal lover let alone Iqbal scholar Nor has Anjum made any attempt to access original sources or archival papers But what he has given us is a useful book for several reasons: the first and foremost being an Iqbal ‘Reader’ for our times In lucid prose he presents before the modern reader the life of a visionary poet and possibly the last of the great Muslim thinkers In his Javed Nama Iqbal had written: “I have lost hope in the older men and I have a message for tomorrow Therefore help the youth to comprehend my works and fathom the depths of my thought with ease” Anjum seems to have taken heed of this for his book is essentially meant to locate Iqbal back in the national narrative Explaining his reasons for writing the book Anjum says “The story you are going to read in these pages is an attempt to narrate Iqbal’s life once again for those who have forgotten him I don’t claim it to be a comprehensive account for to write such a book would require a lot of time and research and in the time that I was given I have tried my best” Eulogised and deified by one lot of people as the father of a new nation and vilified and disparaged by another set for turning away from his earlier nationalistic and inclusive stance Iqbal is held responsible by many in India for introducing a discordant note into the public discourse regarding Muslims Many a school child who has sung Saare jahan se acchha Hindostan hamara at morning assembly is perplexed to later read his views on the necessity of a separate homeland for Indian Muslims Also the liberal use of Hindi words in his early poetry the references to Nanak and Chishti the paean to Lord Rama whom he calls Imam-e Hind his wish to see a new India create a “Naya Shivala” — all of this inexorably leaches out and leaves in its place a staunchly pan-Islamic worldview and Islam-centric frame of reference While his poetry and the philosophy that forms its bedrock continues to thrill readers of all hues and inclinations his politics does indeed become troublesome for many including this reviewer Unfortunately save for a few sweetly lyrical poems such as Haqeeqat-e Husn it is not possible to extricate Iqbal’s poetry from his politics in the vast majority of his oeuvre And if the politics is problematic the poetry — for all its vim and vigour its fire and passion not to mention its incredibly evocative visual imagery — falls inexplicably short Anjum attempts to explain this anomaly thus: “There is universal acknowledgement of Iqbal’s greatness as a poet The problem starts when we come to his politics The Indian journalist Khushwant Singh once aptly said that if you forget Iqbal’s politics he was a great poet However Iqbal’s poetry cannot be appreciated without understanding his politics At the same time one must note that Iqbal’s politics was his response to his immediate circumstances Otherwise we might misconstrue his politics as only the ambition to create Pakistan” This to my mind is a generous assessment While Iqbal was certainly much more than a mere champion of a separate homeland and early proponent of the two-nation theory it is hard to say if his poetry was merely a “response to his immediate circumstances” Had he lived to see the formation of Pakistan and lived long enough to witness the seeds of decline sown in the Land of the Pure would he not have been dismayed Was his vision of a Pakistan based on social democracy and a “return to the original purity of Islam” enunciated in a letter to Jinnah in May 1937 merely a response to his immediate circumstances I think not I think it was an essentially flawed idea that may well have been triggered by extremist movements such as the Shuddhi and Sangathan but had its roots somewhere deep within Iqbal’s own psyche That Iqbal had an inkling of some of his own ambiguities is evident from the following verse: Dhoondhta phirta hoon ai Iqbal apne aapko Aap hi goya musafir aap hii manzil hoon main (I keep looking O Iqbal for myself As if I am the traveller as well as the destination) Rakhshanda Jalil

New York | Published: September 23 2016 7:18 am Sleep and activity routines could also become irregular keeping children from developing healthy lifestyles and social and emotional skills necessary for successful ageing Top News Growing up in a well-off home can benefit a child’s physical health but lack of good relationship with parents or the presence of abuse may affect health as well as well-being during mid-life a study has found “Good parent-child bonds may be necessary to enforce eating sleeping and activity routines” said researcher Assistant Professor Matthew A Andersson at Baylor University in Texas US The study found that if the parent-child relationships are strained or abusive meals may be less coordinated among the family and children are more likely to eat sugary or high-fat foods as snacks even in place of proper meals Sleep and activity routines could also become irregular keeping children from developing healthy lifestyles and social and emotional skills necessary for successful ageing On the other hand good parent-child bonds in economically disadvantaged homes might promote health but do not seem to lessen the negative impact of low socio-economic status as the children age Andersson said Parents with less education and fewer financial advantages are more apt to threaten or force obedience rather than have constructive dialogue and that may lessen warm relations In addition disease rates or inflammation among those children when they become adults have been linked strongly to abuse mistreatment or lower levels of parental warmth “Without adequate parent-child relationship quality to match socio-economic advantage during childhood may not offer much protection against major chronic disease as children become adults and reach middle age” Andersson stated In the study good health at mid-life was defined as being free from 28 possible conditions — cancer circulatory or respiratory disease endocrine diseases nervous system diseases infectious and parasitic diseases skin and digestive disease and musculoskeletal conditions For the study the team analysed data on disease or poor health of middle-aged adults They surveyed 2746 respondents aged 25 to 75 in 1995 about their childhood treatment by parents Surveys were conducted again nearly 10 years later with 1692 of the individuals taking part The follow-up analysis revealed that childhood abuse continued to undermine any protection from disease when linked to childhood socio-economic advantage the researchers concluded in the paper published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: IANS | New York | Published: April 23 2017 6:07 pm Ditch the coffee or soda and hit the stairs now (Source: Thinkstock Images) Top News Researchers have found that 10 minutes of walking up and down stairs at a regular pace is more likely to make you feel energised than ingesting 50mg of caffeine – about the equivalent to the amount in a can of soda “We found in both the caffeine and the placebo conditions that there was not much change in how they felt” said study co-author Patrick J O’Connor Professor at University of Georgia in the US “But with exercise they did feel more energetic and vigorous It was a temporary feeling felt immediately after the exercise but with the 50mg of caffeine we didn’t get as big an effect” O’Connor said The study published in the journal Physiology and Behavior aimed to simulate the hurdles faced in a typical office setting where workers spend hours sitting and staring at computer screens and do not have time for a longer bout of exercise during the day For the study participants on separate days either ingested capsules containing caffeine or a placebo or spent 10 minutes walking up and down stairs – about 30 floors total – at a low-intensity pace O’Connor wanted to compare an exercise that could be achieved by people in an office setting where they have access to stairs and a little time to be active but not enough time to change into workout gear shower and change back into work clothes “And a lot of people working in office buildings have access to stairs so it’s an option to keep some fitness while taking a short break from work” O’Connor said Study participants were female college students who described themselves as chronically sleep deprived – getting less than six and half hours per night To test the effects of caffeine versus the exercise each group took some verbal and computer-based tests to gauge how they felt and how well they performed certain cognitive tasks Neither caffeine nor exercise caused large improvements in attention or memory but stair walking was associated with a small increase in
