24-year-old Sunandita “Ita” Mehrotra is busy pencilling on sheets of white paper It’s almost been four years since Mehrotra wanted to share her story And now finally the process of storytelling has begun as her pencil drawings take on a narrative form In a workshop organised by The Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan New Delhi and Zubaan 15 graphic artists — all women — made the Sanskriti Kendra Anandagram (on the MG Road) their home for almost a week With a title that needs no explanation the ‘Drawing Attention’ workshop-cum-residency programme ended on Sunday and it is just one of the first steps towards a greater goal “The participants are all working on different narratives and these will be published as an anthology by Zubaan” says Priya Kuriyan city-based illustrator who is conducting the workshop with two German artists Ludmilla Bartscht and Larissa Bertonasco Mehrotra a part of the KHOJ collective is one of the participants in this workshop Says the Delhi-based artist “I had met Irom Sharmila on a visit to Manipur; I had expected to find an old woman who had become bitter because of her ongoing battle with the state but there she was talking about regular things and asking if I had tried Manipuri cuisine yet That jail ward in Imphal was the unlikeliest place in the world for a new friendship to blossom but it did” As a single woman in Delhi a place which has developed a notorious reputation for how it treats woman Mehrotra talks about how the meeting inspired her to take on Delhi’s streets on her own an inspiration that she is attempting to document through the project So her storyboard shows sketches of a plane taking off from Delhi and then the journey to Imphal “She’s always been seen as this ‘iron woman’ and so much has already been written about her but I want people to see how warm she is through my experiences” says Mehrotra Bamboo mats topped with flat cushions lie all across the room she’s working in DVDs of Persepolis and Waltz with Bashir lie among sketch books and graphic novels (which includes the German version of Kafka’s The Metamorphosis) at the workshop It was the December 16 event shares Kuriyan that set things in motion “The idea was to get more women to talk about issues being swept under the carpet And both (The Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan and Zubaan) thought it was a good idea to use comic books” she says Other than Kuriyan both Ludmilla Bartscht and Larissa Bertonasco have a special role to play as they represent Spring — an all-women German magazine which has been around for a decade While Bertonasco introduces Spring as the “female voice in the world of storytelling” Bartscht adds “It’s not like we only talk about women’s issues people still ask us why we are an all-women set up” A similar thought echoes through a tale being woven by Mumbai-based Angela Ferrao “I am working on the idea that women need to prove themselves more than men at the workplace” she says With diverse short stories in black and white the graphic anthology is shaping up promisingly even before it has gone to print For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express AppNew York US: Flavia Pennetta won her first Grand Slam singles title Saturday defeating Italian compatriot Roberta Vinci 7-6 (7/4) 6-2 in the US Open women’s final then promptly retired Pennetta became at 33 the oldest first-time Grand Slam women’s champion in the Open era with the 93-minute triumph "It’s a dream come true" Pennetta said But only moments after accepting the trophy she said she had decided to retire after her ultimate victory "This is the way I would like to say goodbye to tennis" Pennetta said "I’m really happy" Flavia Pennetta of Italy holds the US Open trophy after defeating Roberta Vinci of Italy in the US Open finals AFP The only other Italian woman to win a major singles title was Francesca Schiavone who captured the 2010 French Open and set the former oldest first-timer age mark at 29 "I’m really happy right now" said Pennetta a 150-1 longshot to win the title when the Flushing Meadows fortnight began "Before this tournament I never think to be so far I never think to be a champion When things come like this it’s a big surprise to me" Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi was among 23771 in Arthur Ashe Stadium watching the first all-Italian women’s Grand Slam final of the Open Era Pennetta took the top prize of $33 million (29 million euros) while runner-up Vinci received $16 million Pennetta previously had won only $712401 this year while Vinci’s 2015 prize money before Sunday was $422158 The breakthrough win came in Pennetta’s 49th Grand Slam appearance the most needed for any women’s major champion two more than France’s Marion Bartoli when she won at Wimbledon in 2013 "Always when I was younger I was thinking to be number one" Pennetta said "I was also thinking to win Rome but I think Grand Slam may be a little better" Pennetta ranked 26th and Vinci ranked 43rd each played in her first Grand Slam final after pulling a semi-final shocker Vinci shattered the hopes of Serena Williams to achieve the first calendar Slam since 1988 with a semi-final win over the top-ranked defending champion while Pennetta dispatched Romania’s second-ranked Simona Halep "It was tough" Vinci said of returning after the emotional drain of ousting Williams "I passed the 24 hours with a lot of things on my mind I was really tired especially in the first set but I was in the US Open final so I was really happy" Friends since childhood in southern Italy Vinci 32 and Pennetta had the oldest combined ages of any Open Era Grand Slam final duo beating the former mark of just under 64 years from when Virginia Wade beat Betty Stove in the 1977 Wimbledon final "It’s tough to play against one player you know from a long time" Vinci said "Was tough today but I tried to do my best Flavia played unbelievable today Great match" Pennetta who took a 6-4 lead in the career rivalry leaped to a career-best eighth in the rankings with her 11th career title the first since last year at Indian Wells The first US Open women’s championship match between Grand Slam finalist debutantes saw Pennetta force seven break points against Vinci before breaking through for a 3-2 edge in the first set Vinci hit a backhand crosscourt winner to earn her first break point in the eighth game and Pennetta netted a backhand to pull Vinci even at 4-4 on the way to a tie-break Pennetta won five of the last seven points in the decider the last on a service winner to claim the opening set after an hour Pennetta broke Vinci for a 2-0 lead and moved ahead 4-0 when Vinci netted a backhand to surrender another break Vinci broke back in the fifth game a Pennetta drop shot leading to a Vinci overhead smash and held but Pennetta regained momentum with a lob winner to hold and grab a 5-2 edge then broke for the win AFP Before India began day four of the first Test in Galle Ishant Sharma was spotted taking batting tips from Rohit Sharma in the nets Since Ishant ended up outscoring Rohit by seven runs as the Indian batting collapsed the scene acquired a certain irony in hindsight Rohit’s failures in the first Test have led many to question his place at No 3 in the batting line-up especially given his earlier struggles to establish himself in the Test side It is not a conversation Rohit wishes to have Twin failures in Galle have increased the calls for Rohit Sharma to be not considered for the No 3 position in Tests AFP “I am a very positive person” Rohit said in his pre-departure media briefing “And I am hoping that you will ask me some positive questions I don’t want to look at the past because the future is very promising” This was his response when asked why he had failed to carry his recent limited-overs form into Tests He seemed uneasy talking about what could have been “I have hardly played 10-11 Tests and they have not been in a stretch And in those matches too my spot in the batting line-up hasn’t been fixed” Rohit said In 21 Test innings so far Rohit has batted four times at no3 once at no4 (Galle) seven times at no5 and nine times at no6 But that doesn’t explain the pre-meditated leave to Dale Steyn in Durban (December 2013) Or his attack on Moeen Ali ten minutes before tea at Southampton last July that led to an easy catch In addition Virat Kohli started his Test career batting at no6 and then moved to no5 before eventually to no4 And both Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane scored runs before they were accorded permanent spots in the line-up In fact this underlines Rohit’s failure even more He first came onto the scene in 2007-08 much before Kohli Rahane or Cheteshwar Pujara were talked about With that CB series win in Australia he was talked up as the big hope of the future ‘Potential’ was the watchword back then Eight years have passed since Rohit has only gone from potential to talent to frustrating inconsistency But there has been one constant: unwavering support His rise to the opener’s slot in ODIs is a keen example MS Dhoni did not want to drop him but didn’t know where to fit him in the middle order either Thus he was pushed up to opening in January 2013 The Champions Trophy success and two double hundreds justified that move even if it came at the cost of Rahane’s place in the ODI side Something similar is happening with Pujara at the moment Yes he failed in New Zealand and England Yes he failed to convert starts in Australia but the team could have been more patient with him “Rohit brings flair to number three” said Sanjay Bangar ahead of the first Test “If he gets going we will score quickly” said Kohli “Rohit can bat long when set he just needs to be solid initially” said Ravi Shastri The evidence suggests differently Since the Sydney Test where he was first promoted to number three Rohit has scores of 53 39 6 9 and 4 There are no long innings to be found herein but a lack of temperament He threw away his wicket in the first innings in Sydney attacking Nathan Lyon In Bangladesh he attacked the bowler on the 11th ball he faced and was bowled going for a big shot In the first innings at Galle he was trapped LBW twice to an inswinger saved the first time only by a no-ball And so the all-important question here is this: should Rohit continue to bat at number three in the remaining two Tests in Colombo The answer is yes First and foremost Kohli is building this team with new ideas and as a newly appointed skipper he should be allowed time to experiment and chop/change as he sees fit Secondly playing a whole series at a consistent spot will take away Rohit’s complaints and allow him to showcase if he can truly learn and adapt his game to the requirements of the team It will be good if he does If not his failure for an entire series might just wake up the team management and the selectors to review his Test record and position in the squad Last but the not least it might also finally tell Rohit that he is not quite good enough at the moment Top seeds Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams both swept into the last 16 at the French Open on a rain-hit Saturday in Paris while Dominic Thiem confirmed his status as an outsider to win the men’s title French hopes of a first home win in 33 years meanwhile were dealt a heavy blow when sixth-seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga retired with a groin injury in the first set of his match with Ernests Gulbis Novak Djokovic celebrates win against Aljaz Bedene Getty Images Djokovic who can become just the eighth man to win all four Grand Slam tournaments should be emerge triumphant next weekend beat Britain’s Aljaz Bedene 6-2 6-3 6-3 just before the light became too poor to play in The Serb winner of the last three Grand Slam tournaments has seen his chances of adding the French title considerably improved by the shock injury withdrawal of nine-time champion Rafael Nadal "It was important to finish this evening" was Djokovic’s relieved comment on his late show before thanking the umpire for keeping the action going despite the gloom Williams seeking an Open-era record-equalling 22nd Grand Slam title was a set up and about to tackle a second set tie-break against France’s Kristina Mladenovic when a thunderstorm sent everyone scurrying for cover On the resumption more than two and a half hours later the top seed and defending champion needed five match points to finish the job going through 6-4 7-6 (12/10) with Ukraine 18th seed Elina Svitolina next in her line of fire following her victory over former champion Ana Ivanovic "It was tough but it’s part of the game You just have to be ready for it" Williams said of the bad weather "I feel like I made a tremendous amount of errors But you know I feel like she kind of forced me to She forced me to go for it and unfortunately I wasn’t hitting great today" Thiem was already done and dusted ahead of the rain downing German teenager Alexander Zverev 6-7 (4/7) 6-3 6-3 6-3 to reach the fourth round In what was a clash of two of the sport’s rising new stars the Austrian dropped a tight first set but then coasted away from his 19-year-old opponent He will next play Spain’s Marcel Granollers who reached the fourth round without hitting a ball after Nadal’s withdrawal due to a wrist injury If he wins that it will be the first time that 22-year-old Thiem has reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam and Tsonga’s exit will further improve his chances "It’s been the third match in the last four weeks between us and it was really tough but I knew that from the start already" he said "It was my first match on one of the big stadiums (at Roland Garros) and it was packed An unbelievable experience" Also through to the last 16 was 2014 losing finalist David Ferrer who comfortably saw off the challenge of fellow Spaniard Feliciano Lopez 6-4 7-6 (8/6) 6-1 He will next play seventh seed Tomas Berdych a 6-4 3-6 6-2 7-5 winner over Pablo Cuevas Belgian 12th seed David Goffin beat Nicolas Almagro 6-2 4-6 6-3 4-6 6-2 and next plays Gulbis In the women’s tournament there were wins also for eighth seed Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland Spain’s Carla Suarez

(7/3) 1-6 6-0 win over Alize Cornet of France That put the 35-year-old into the fourth round in Paris for the first time since 2010 and heading for a possible semi-final showdown with her sister "So excited to be in the next round I have had issues in the past (with clay) but what can you do Every year is different and I am trying to make it my best this year" said the ninth seed and seven-time Grand Slam winner Late in the day Madison Keys made it four Americans in the last 16 with a 7-6 (7/3) 6-3 over Monica Puig of Puerto Rico Written by Express News Service | Ludhiana | Published:
