in the auto industry (Image for representation Source: Reuters) Related News A US judge on Wednesday warned Uber Technologies Inc it could face a court injunction that would bar a key Uber executive from working on its self-driving car project in a high-profile case filed by Alphabet Inc’s Waymo unit The litigation pits two Silicon Valley giants against each other over technology at the heart of a potential revolution in the auto industry US District Judge William Alsup said evidence amassed by Waymo to bolster its case of being robbed was extraordinary “I’ve never seen a record this strong in 42 years” Alsup said A hearing on Waymo’s request for an injunction on Uber’s self-driving program is scheduled for May Waymo sued ride services company Uber earlier this year claiming that former Waymo executive Anthony Levandowski downloaded over 14000 confidential documents before leaving the company to join Uber Waymo said Uber benefited from those documents and has sued for damages and to stop Uber from using the technology Levandowski allegedly stole Levandowski is one of the most experienced self-driving car engineers in Silicon Valley and the loss of his expertise would be a major blow to Uber which has said autonomous vehicles are crucial to future growth In court on Wednesday Uber lawyer Arturo Gonzalez said the company had been working hard to find evidence that Waymo’s documents were in Uber’s possession but could not find anything material Also Read:After argument with driver Uber CEO promises to ‘grow up’ Waymo waited several months after learning of the downloads before filing a lawsuit over them Gonzalez said He argued the time lag before requesting the documents showed the materials are not crucial enough to merit an injunction in the case Waymo’s attorneys argued that Uber has not searched hard enough Alsup ordered Uber to conduct a broader search and said that the weight of Waymo’s evidence “could lead to a preliminary injunction that Levandowski cannot work on this project any more until this case is over” Alsup emphasized that he had not yet decided how he would rule For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related

eve of 1857 (Source: IANS) Top News Title: Once Upon a Time in India -The Marvellous Adventures of Captain Corcoran Author: Alfred Assollant (translated by Sam Miller) Publisher: Juggernaut Pages: 252 Price: Rs 299 The Raj seems an integral part of our history but was not a certainty with another European power fiercely contesting British influence in the subcontinent much of the 18th century and coming quite close to supplanting them Were it not for some miscalculations and lost battles we might have ended up as the world’s largest French-speaking nation What could have our course been in such an eventuality A tantalising glimpse of a possible democratic republican dispensation can be seen this long-obscure classic unearthed and translated by British journalist and author Sam Miller about the exploits of a most singular French adventurer accompanied by an unprecedented aide in mid-19th century British India on the eve of 1857 This adventure by Alfred Assollant a little-known French author of the 19th century was most popular in his time and later (as Miller tells us 20th century fans included the likes of French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre and Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci) translated into most European languages save English – its targets but failed to make him famous or rich It is still in print but not much read or known Assollant (1827-86) was by no means the only Frenchman to write about India – take his more famous contemporary Jules Verne (also a lawyer’s son) with “The Steam House” (also known as “The End of Nana Sahab”) and a notable character Captain Nemo of “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” 1871 and more revealed to be Indian – and with great hatred of the British It is this vein Assollant seemed to have pioneered in his 1867 work His French hero is brave enterprising and courteous while his British opponents are mostly brutal venal inefficient or arrogant and Indians with exceptions correspond to the prevailing stereotypes of noble savages with a stress on both words The plot seems to be simple In Lyons the prestigious Academy of Sciences at its session in September-end 1856 is told about the death of one of its members who “was just about to leave for India to search amid the mountains known as the Ghats near the source of the Godavari River for the Guru Karamata the most important sacred books of the Hindus long hidden from European eyes” but left a considerable sum to whoever takes his unfinished job An academy member suggests they open it to the public but it is only in May the following year do they find someone who proves to meet all requirements The only thing that Captain Corcoran has the impatient five-year old Louison waiting in the other room and some learned members suggest chastisement before they find she happens to be a Royal Bengal tiger – and hungry Bedlam ensues The scene then shifts to India to the court of the Holkar “Prince of the Marathas” at Bhagavpur on the Narmada where the British sensing some trouble in the wind are seek to disarm him and even suborn his prime minister for the purpose But sailing up the river is his French saviour After a confused melange of revolts kidnappings (including of Holkar’s beautiful and charming daughter Sita) sieges and pitched battles Corcoran finds himself the master of the situation as well the ruler of the kingdom and husband of the princess But will his radical measures of equitable governance go down well with his traditional subjects or the nobles who think they have a better claim to power Assollant who was quite radical in real life (he lost his teacher’s job for his views) makes his hero a vessel for his ideas but colonialism puts paid to this attractive option No matter how open and radical at home the French and the British never followed this rule in most of their colonies But subtext some errors in his depiction of India and its customs and the narrative’s shifting moods – from pure farce with which it begins to a more dark tone later – apart Assollant’s work is not only a dated literary curiousity but an engrossing tale which needs to be relished Miller who did a commendable job here needs to bring out the other adventures too For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Shantanu David | Published: December 9 2016 1:04 am Hana Ho; a delicacy from the kitchen Top News Dream big but start small they say Hana Ho seems to have taken this maxim to heart when she opened Little Saigon a Vietnamese eatery in Delhi’s Hauz Khas Market Tiny and cheerful like her restaurant the 35-year-old bustles around Little Saigon to help out guests with their orders and recommend dishes while her uncle helps out in the kitchen It’s entirely a family affair Which is how Ho’s career in fact began Straight out of high school she and her sister began to help their mother at her restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) where they were born and raised Ho learned with her mother for six years before heading to her city’s Marriott hotel after her family restaurant shut shop She worked there for two-and-a-half years before shifting to the Intercontinental In the interim fate intervened “In 2008 the Marriott in Mumbai held a Vietnamese food festival and I was sent to help curate it The response was so wonderful that I knew I had to come back” she says She got an opportunity when the Taj Palace in Delhi opened Blue Ginger in 2010 and Ho was one of the two Vietnamese chefs stationed there Two years later her countryman left and Ho was the sole Chef de cuisine at the restaurant till its closure While she had a host of offers Ho decided to strike out on her own “Ten years was more than enough in a five-star hotel and I wanted to do my own thing I was determined to do it in Delhi because while there are so many different cuisines here Vietnamese food has no representation” she says Little Saigon launched operations in late August Three months later it has become a belle of the ball While Little Saigon delivers to its neighbourhood Ho isn’t particularly enthused with the idea “Vietnamese food is meant to be eaten hot and fresh from the kitchen If you do delivery and then get stuck in a jam the food will lose a lot of its quality” she says “Our food is so healthy and light; we use only fresh ingredients without too much oil or a lot of spices There’s a lot of steaming and boiling involved so you don’t feel heavy after a meal” she adds The cuisine includes rice noodles rice paper sheets and Vietnamese coffee all of which Ho has a friend of hers get directly from Vietnam on his monthly trips between Delhi and Ho Chi Minh All her other ingredients are sourced locally “from INA of course” Having been in Delhi for the last six years has ensured that her supply chain is in place with one small exception — the beef with beef which is a major element in Vietnamese food “When the government banned beef last year that was a problem because I cannot use buff in the place of beef You can use buff as a substitute in Indian and other heavily spiced cuisines because the flavour of the meat gets disguised but because we don’t use that many ingredients we can’t use buff as the whole taste of the dish changes” says Ho admitting she tried to tweak the dishes but to no avail By next year Ho hopes to open her second restaurant in the city for which she is flying her brother into the country The plan is to have one Vietnamese chef in each kitchen because as Ho says “You need a Vietnamese to cook Vietnamese food”

Publisher: Random House Price: Rs 2052 No story has been recounted as obsessively as the Holocaust’s In history and in fiction in memoir and in biography it has been told and retold as if to reiterate never again never again The gas chambers of Auschwitz the piles of clothes and spectacles left behind by the dead the faces of those going to their deaths are artefacts of a collective memory by now But one of the lasting perversities of the Holocaust is that it implicates the reader as well To read Holocaust fiction in the 21st century is to feel something more complicated than the first wash of horror; it is to know a troubling fetishistic pleasure in revisiting a grisly story To break these habits of response an author writing about the Holocaust must inevitably struggle with how to make it new That is perhaps what Martin Amis tries to do in The Zone of Interest Which might explain why the central premise of Amis’s novel has qualities of the absurd: a romance in Auschwitz Angelus “Golo” Thomsen a young Nazi official blessed with Teutonic good looks falls in love with the camp commandant’s wife Hannah Doll also blessed with Teutonic good looks As the commandant drolly named Paul Doll begins to suspect an affair he descends into a spiral of madness misogyny and alcoholism A search for a missing communist and Germany’s changing fortunes in the war are the other driving forces of the plot Three narrators tell the story between them — Thomsen Paul Doll and Szmul a member of the Sonderkommando the special squad of prisoners tasked with clearing the dead Auschwitz never named in the book becomes an allegorical space a kind of theatre for the absurd It is the zone of interest the area cordoned off by the Nazis for the execution of the final solution But the zone of interest is also Hannah the object of Thomsen’s desire lit up by his longing gaze The zone of interest is also “who somebody really was” the self thrown into sharp relief in the cold harsh light of National Socialism Except this fine allegorical vision does not hold for long The historical reality of the camp bears down on it The wisecracks cannot ward off the stench of death the choir of violins cannot drown out the quavering screams of the doomed This is a novel that wavers between satire and sentimentality as the cool detachment of its protagonist Thomsen is broken by his falling in love with Hannah It is also a curiously old-fashioned novel drawing on British comedy sketch traditions of the snorting bullet-headed Prussian and an Anglophone hero with public school humour Indeed its moral compass seems to be determined by this quaint distinction For instance language is indictment in the novel but what exactly is it indicting Paul Doll’s Nazism is revealed in his use of digits instead of words the sharp 1s and 1/2s that interrupt the text and in his cataloguing of women’s bodies no different from his accounting of dead Jewish bodies Sometimes he uses extravagant phrases like “the first lambent beams of the morning” — coy references to the romantic flights of fancy that sustained Nazism But mostly Doll is meant to be ridiculous because he is parodically German The frequent lapses into German verbal tics like nicht and ne seem to be crimes in themselves Thomsen in contrast is not guilty of being excessively German As if by extension he is not guilty of bad poetry either He writes more literary prose and quotes WH Auden Eventually he also learns English If language is morality in the novel it boils down to this: English good German bad The lampooning works as long as the satire lasts But when the novel takes on a more serious tenor it sounds rather laddish In the end Amis cannot resist long earnest passages on the pity of war the insanity of the Holocaust the stripping of the human soul But we’ve heard all of it before in the voices of various writers To the satiated jaundiced modern reader alas he does not make it new For all the latest Lifestyle News
