August 6 2016 11:59 am Edward Snowden with Arundhati Roy and John Cusack (Source: Ole von Uexküll) Top News Book: Things That Can and Cannot Be Said Authors: Arundhati Roy & John Cusack Publication: Juggernaut Pages: 132 Price: Rs 250 The title of the book — Things That Can and Cannot be Said — demands an imperative It is as if Arundhati Roy and John Cusack aware of their internal turmoil in dealing with a world that is rapidly becoming unintelligible though not incomprehensible are demanding an order where none exists Hence they are advocating for certainty and assurance only to undermine it ironically through their own freely associative writing that mimics linear time and causative narrative This deep-seated irony of needing to say something but knowing that saying it is not going to shine a divining light on the sordid realities of the world that is being managed through the production of grand structures like valorous nation states virtuous civil societies the obsequious NGO-isation of radical action and the persistent neutering of justice through the benign vocabulary of human rights defines the oeuvre the politics and the poetics of the book Written like a scrap book filled with excerpts from long conversations scattered over time and space annotated by reminiscences of books read long ago that have seared their imprints on the mind and events that are simultaneously platitudinous for their status as global landmarks and fiercely personal for the scars that they have left on the minds of the authors the book remains an engaging if a somewhat freewheeling ride into a political critique that makes itself all the more palatable and disconcerting for the levity irreverence and the dark sense of humour that accompanies it Composed in alternating chapters the first half of the book is about Cusack and Roy laying themselves bare They spare no words square no edges and put their personal political and collective wounds on display with humble pride and proud humility Cusack’s experience as a screenplay writer comes in handy — he rescues what could have been a long tirade into a series of conversations The familiar narratives are rehistoricised and de-territorialised put into new contexts while eschewing the older ones thus providing a large landscape that refers to state-sponsored genocide structural reorganisation of nation states the dying edge of political action the overwhelming but invisible presence of capital and the dithering state of social justice that treats human beings like things Cusack identifying the poetic genius of Roy gives her centre stage making her the voice in command Roy for her part seems to have enjoyed this moment in the soapbox — something that she has been doing quite effectively and provocatively to a national and global audience — and gives it her all There are moments when the text feels indulgent when the voice feels a little relentless when the almost schizophrenic global and historical references become a litany of mixed-up events that might have required further nuance and deeper interpretation However the whimsical style of Roy’s narrative with her sense of what is right and her demeanour that remains friendly curious and disarming saves the text from being heavy handed even when it does dissolve into cloying poignancy and makes you pause just so that you can breathe Surprisingly it is the second part of the book where the two encounter Edward Snowden along with Daniel Ellsberg the “Snowden of the 1960s” who had leaked the Pentagon papers that falters Snowden had jocularly mentioned that Roy was there to “radicalise him” She does that but in a way that doesn’t give us anything more than what we already know While Cusack and Roy were committed to getting to know Snowden beyond his systems-man image there wasn’t much that they could uncover either in dialogue or in discourse that could have told us more endeared us further to possibly the most over-exposed person in recent times However one realises that the genius of the narrative is actually in reminding us how transparent Edward Snowden has become to us We know all kinds of things about this young man — from his girlfriends past to his actions future from his values and convictions to his opinion on the NSA watching people’s naked pictures — and yet what has been missing in the Snowden files has been the larger arc of global politics social reordering and perhaps a glimpse of the post-nation future that Snowden might have seen in his act of whistleblowing that is going to remain the landmark moment that defines the rest of this century Once you have gotten over the fact that this is not a book about Snowden the expectations are better tailored for what is to come and suddenly the long prelude to the meeting falls into place Snowden matches Roy and Cusack in whimsy irony political conviction and the sacred faith in human values that make you want to give them all a fierce hug of hesitant reassurance What Snowden says what Roy and Cusack make of it and how they leave us almost abruptly at the end breathless unnerved and severely conflicted about some of the 20th century structures like society activism nation states governance communication technologies sharing and caring is what the book has to be read for The tight screen-writing skills of Cusack meet the perfect timing of Roy’s prose and all of it becomes surreal futuristic and indelibly real when it gets anchored on the physical presence of Snowden who in exile talks achingly of the home that has thrown him out and the home that he can never really call his own And while there are lapses — fragments translations and evocations which might have needed more explanations to have their pedagogic intent shine through — there is no denying that in all its flaws much like the narrators the book manages to first immerse you in the cold shock of a sobering reality clearly positioning the apocalypse as the now and then drags you out and wraps you up in a warm blanket opening up forms of critique formats of intervention and functions of political commitment towards saying things that have and have not been said The book should have perhaps been titled what could would should have been said but can’t won’t shan’t be said — not because of anything else but because it seems futile

version and here’s why Related News Nokia 8 is officially the first flagship from HMD Global and given the specifications and features this is a device designed for media creation The dual-rear camera the ‘bothie’ option and OZO audio are all geared towards making video content easier and more fun on this smartphone But one of the questions around Nokia 8 is the lack of a 128GB variant since both the front and rear cameras support 4K video resolution Then of course there’s the other issue of why HMD Global has chosen not to give 6GB or 8GB RAM variants especially as the competition is offering these According to HMD Global’s chief product officer Juho Sarvikas the company has good reasoning for why they are sticking with one variant at least for now In an interaction with select media ahead of the launch he admitted that having extra storage on board like a 128GB variant would have been a good idea but said that currently the company was only looking at one variant “Today we’re just talking about the 4GB RAM and 64GB variant” he said It also looks like HMD Global wants to ensure quick availability with the phone and is thus sticking with one configuration “We want to stay focused with one broad configuration on the global market The problem with too many configurations is that you then stumble with availability” pointed out HMD Global’s chief product officer Sarvikas was also confident the Nokia 8 would score higher in benchmark apps like Antutu and GeekBench against the competition On the extra RAM Sarvikas pointed out that with stock Android a phone doesn’t always need so much RAM “Sure in China where it is the wild wild West and there’s no official Google Play Store and apps are behaving badly having more RAM on board could make sense But any app with Google Play Store won’t be consuming so much RAM and a user typically won’t have so many issues The benefits of having the extra RAM would be marginal” he pointed out The dual-camera option on the Nokia 8 Sarvikas also explained in detail about the camera and the idea behind ‘the dual-sight’ option or what it is marketing as ‘Bothie’ For those who missed it Nokia 8 will let people shoot record video do a live stream on Facebook with the front and rear camera in use at the same time On the live stream integration in the native camera app Sarvikas explained the company worked closely with Facebook “Also both of the fused frames are at full HD resolution” he said So how long can a user run such a dual-camera live stream and at what resolution given that overheating invariably becomes an issue Sarvikas said in India’s hottest summer days a user should expect 36-60 minutes after which the resolution will drop For those using dual camera live stream in more tolerant weather conditions the company claims it can run for as long until the battery drains out With the ‘Dual Sight’ option HMD Global says it fuses the two feeds as it is being captured Also read: Nokia 8 first impressions: Sleek design new camera features and the ‘bothie’ Sarvikas also spoke about the phone’s heat dissipation system which has a wide and long copper pipe across the device for effective thermal management “We can dissipate heat effectively on this phone thanks to the wire There is no typical hot spot near the camera and our heat management solution is very advanced” he claimed The company says it wants to push the envelope in the flagship market and focus on real-life experiences HMD Global’s idea is to go beyond the specifications madness The company says it has shipped millions of units of the

Samsung Electronics pretty much have the market locked up with high-performance phones that look pretty and work well The response from Turing Robotic Industries A $1600 phone linked to a high-end concierge service overseen by a digital assistant named Sir Alan The Appassionato which means “enthusiast” in Italian is the latest effort from closely held Turing which based in Los Angeles and designed and built the phone at a former Nokia factory in Finland The gadget is constructed of liquid metal features a 55-inch OLED screen and will run a custom version of Android The Appassionato
