the marriage registrar’s office while the couple exchanged medals instead of garlands the “baraatis” were given ‘Finishing Certificate’ as a return gifts Even the wedding invitation card got innovative by introducing bride and groom as “runners” and carrying title of the wedding as “Ek Dhavtya Lagnachi Goshta” (The story of a running marriage) From the entertainment world: Surprisingly the idea of “running” to get married had also struck Dige when he was running a marathon a few months ago Dige who runs a computer printer service centre in Satara recollects “While from the past few years I was clear that I will not get married the conventional way and spend unnecessary yet I wanted my marriage to have a unique touch My friend with whom I was running and who knows how passionate I am to raise awareness about running for fitness amongst people suggested the idea of combining marathon with marriage” The next challenge however was to break the news to Punam The task didn’t seem easy to Dige given the fact that it was an arranged match and also because she wasn’t into running at all unlike him When Dige shared the idea of running to get married though Punam was surprised initially she agreed to be a part of it to support him “I said yes thinking that it will be a unique experience not just for us but also those who will attend the marriage” says Punam adding that there was no opposition from either families too Later in order to check feasibility of his plan Dige approached Dr Sandeep Suryakant Kate of Satara Hill Marathon Organising Committee to seek his opinion for the event who guided him Kate said that this morning the bride and groom along with nearly 70 attendees (mostly marathon runners) gathered at Dige’s native place Medha The couple and the “baraatis” including parents and relatives from both the sides who began the run at6 am While some runners finished the entire 25-km stretch those who were novices to running including Punam ran for 7-10 kms and covered the rest of the distance in a vehicle However along the distance the onlookers kept joining the groom and by the time the group reached the registrar office in Satara almost 500 runners had become a part of the ‘marathon marriage’ “The main aim was to encourage people to run for fitness and we achieved that” said Kate Now that the marriage is over Punam says “I am inspired by him and now I also plan to start running marathon like him” For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWashington: The Senate has unanimously confirmed three

Published: February 18 2012 12:12 am Related News Democratic changes are of greater importance than the drumbeats of war The general debate on how to deal with the Iranian nuclear programme frames it as one of the most alarming and complex issues in one of the worlds most volatile regions An Islamic revolutionary regime has ruled Iran since 1979but Iran is a much different society than it was 33 years ago when the revolution happened ThenIranian society was united around a charismatic leader by the name of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini Todayyoung Iranians suffer from a lack of romanticism about the concept of revolution in general This is one reasonamong manywhy there has been little appetite in the Iranian society for revolutionary uprisings Analysts of Iranian politics would correctly argue that the revolutionary Islam of 1979 has produced widespread disenchantment among Iranians three decades later Howeverdespite the low number of true believers in the utopian ideas of 79even among the many architects of the regimeIrans leadership apparently is still practising coercive strategies to maintain its lost moral and political legitimacy Let it be stressed again that the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has succeeded in recent years to create for himself a cult of personality which has found more echoes among the Iranian para-military groups than among the quietist Shiite clergy and the Grand Ayatollahs Indeedperhaps the most important change in the Iranian political structure over the past three decades has been the rise of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC or Pasdaran) from an ideological institution into an expansive socio-political-economic force that controls every corner of Iranian society As a force in Iranian politicsthe IRGC is less of a traditional military entity than a multidimensional player with influence reaching deep into Irans foreign policy The IRGC also controls Irans Basij forcean all-volunteer paramilitary groupwhich has about a million conscripts In April 2011the United States imposed sanctions on the IRGCs Quds Force for supporting the Syrian regimes crackdown on protesters In this respectthe IRGC has stayed true to its original mandate of safeguarding the foundational principles of the revolution and exporting them to other Muslim countries More broadlythe Pasdarans growing strategic economic control (which ranges from telecommunications to oil) must be acutely examinednext to its control of all of Irans strategic military assetsincluding the countrys increasingly sophisticated long-range missiles programme As suchthe Islamic Republic is increasingly a military oligarchy with a clerical face Neverthelessthe IRGCs socio-political profile is set to grow even more in the months ahead The reason behind this change has less to do with the domestic situation in Tehran than with Irans geopolitical profile and the increasing possibility of a military confrontation with the United States and Israel The Iranian Revolutionary Guards are fully aware of possible Israeli threats against Irans nuclear facilities and the US military capabilities in the Persian Gulf The ultimate questionof courseis how Iran would retaliate once Israelis have completed their strikes Would the attack persuade Iranian leaders to cease their pursuit of nuclear weapons or does the Iranian regime start a long-term war with the US and bear the costs of regional chaos Given the worldwide interest on the issue and the aggressive stance of Iranian and Israeli government officialsit would be wrong to turn a blind eye on the possibility of ruling out an attack It is true that the Iranian regime is showing few signs of flexibility over its nuclear programme and the military branch of the Islamic system would accept the risk of a military confrontation with the American forces as a reliable way of consolidating its powerbut looking back at the absence of military rule in contemporary Iranian historyit would be difficult to imagine how the IRGC could mobilise different social categories of the Iranian society in favour of a nationalistic warregardless of the survival of the Islamic regime Moreoverthe nuclear programme is not an issue of life and death for Ayatollah KhameneiMahmoud Ahmadinejad or any of Irans Revolutionary Guards If we accept the fact that Iranian leaders are not suicidal and they use the nuclear power status as a way to keep their power alivethere is good reason to believe that the June deadline invoked by American Defence Secretary Leon Panetta for Israeli attacks against Iran is in part to give Obama and the P5+1 enough time for diplomatic leverage on Iran The White House has successfully fended off pressure to go to waror at least to be more confrontationalby touting sanctions and their international allies Howeverno one has any expectations at all that in an election year Obama will make concessions to Iraneven in exchange for Iranian concessions It goes without saying that the basic problem in regard to Irans nuclear issue is that there is no diplomatic relationship between Washington and Tehran While a lot of talk of war can be dismissed as simple psychological rhetoricthe notion of the possible necessity of war with Iran rests on a perception of the Islamic Republic of Iran as an irrational actor that can never be trusted with having nuclear weapons and should be deterred from ever using them Howeveras everybody knowsIran is not as strong or effective a military presence in the Middle East as is commonly believed or feared As the Arab Spring spreads across the Middle Eastnew partnerships and allegiances have shaped the shifting political landscape of the region While Turkey and Saudi Arabia are considered as the main winners of the Arab AwakeningIran has emerged as the big loser of the recent uprisings in the Middle East It is clear that in many ways the Islamic Republic is in a transition where many of its fundamental domestic and foreign policies are being called into question At a moment when Iran has lost its ability to influence developments in Bahrain and Syriathe whole aim of the sanctions by the EU and the US against the Iranian regime is to pressure the Iranian authorities to negotiate and compromise Regardless of the relative weakness of Iran in many respectsthe best way to find a solution to the Iran problem is to think of the democratic future of Iranthus making it clear to Iranians that their country is an actor in the region that must be heard and dragged out of its condition as a pariah state This indicates not only the real costs of a military attack for the future of Iran in particular and the Middle East in generalbut also that democratic changes afoot in Iran are of greater importance for the political development of the country than the drumbeats of war which keep silencing the voice of human rights activists and civil society actors in Iran The writer is an
