He concluded: ? Related News How the London ‘Times’ jumped the gun in announcing the beginning of the Bangladesh war . By the time Indira Gandhi finished her extensive tour abroad everybody knew that the war for the liberation of Bangladesh was inevitable The question no longer was whether it would take place but when Indeed the prime minister herself had declared at a meeting of the India League during her visit to London: “I am sitting on top of a volcano and I honestly do not know when it is gong to erupt” By the beginning of November however it seemed that the flashpoint was near On the one hand General Yahya Khan and his cohorts — with the full cooperation of religious parties and even more importantly of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto the founder-chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party — were building up war psychosis in West Pakistan On the other the savagery of the Pakistan army in Bangladesh had exceeded all limits For its part the 100000-strong Mukti Bahini — with some Indian backing which meant that a number of Indian armed personnel in mufti were advising and otherwise helping it — was fighting the army of occupation as best it could However given the Pakistan army’s “hot pursuit” of “East Bengali guerrillas” to allow such a situation to last indefinitely would obviously have been an invitation to disaster In the midst of this ominous situation I was suddenly faced with a professional dilemma I venture to mention it only because it has relevance to the story of the 1971 war For an urgent assignment I had to be in London in mid-November At the same time I was determined not to be away from the country on D-Day I was then living in Bombay (now Mumbai) working for The Times of India I rushed to New Delhi to seek advice from the three service chiefs as well as the civilians with a major say in policy More by innuendo than explicitly they told me that I could go abroad on November 12 but should be back before the month’s end Imagine my shock and surprise therefore when I picked up my copy of The Times (London) on the morning of November 22 and saw the story under a huge headline that the long-expected war between India and Pakistan had begun Despite the early hour I rang up the Indian high commissioner who informed me that he had just finished remonstrating with the paper’s editor for publishing news that was “absolutely false” What exactly had happened became known fairly soon On the pretext of the so-called hot pursuit on the night of November 21 a Pakistani infantry brigade supported by artillery and air force had launched a major attack on a Mukti Bahini base at a place called Belonia in an area generally known as Byra very close to Jessore on the border Brazenly Pakistani troops attacked several Indian villages The Indian defence forces brought down three Pakistan Air Force aircraft in Indian air space and arrested the three pilots that had bailed out As wild rumours about this incident began to spread the Indian authorities wisely did something they had failed to do in 1962 and even in 1965 They flew representatives of the world press to Belonia late at night to see the state of affairs Most foreign correspondents managed to correct the despatches they had sent earlier Why the Times man didn’t do so has never been explained Back in Bombay on the morning of November 25 I caught up with all that had happened during my absence A day before the Belonia episode Yahya had suddenly extended his “hand of friendship” and asked India to “grab it” so that the two countries could “begin a new era of good neighbourly relations” But as usual the inebriated general changed his mind in next to no time On November 23 he declared a “national emergency” asserting that Pakistan was “gravely threatened by external aggression” The Pakistani press screamed that India was about to invade both East and West Pakistan Gandhi’s repudiation of these claims was prompt Yahya’s declaration of a state of emergency she declared was a “climax of his efforts to put the blame on us for a situation he himself had created” Giving an interview to Newsweek at times he was somewhat unclear On one point however there was no lack of clarity He told the interviewer: “I have no reason to tell you that the war is not imminent because it is In ten days time I might not be in Rawalpindi (Pakistan’s military dictators live in the Army House in the garrison city not in the presidential palace in Islamabad); I shall be fighting a war” Sure enough he kept his word For it was exactly 10 days after he gave the interview to the American magazine that Yahya launched what later came to be known as his “Unlucky Strike” Bombers of the PAF attacked a number of Indian advanced air bases at sunset on December 3 It was a clumsy and unproductive operation that achieved little besides triggering the Bangladesh war Had he waited another 24 hours the responsibility for starting the unavoidable clash of arms would have been ours Indira Gandhi’s preference all through was not to be the first to start the hostilities But after Belonia she and her military planners had decided that if Pakistan did not act by December 3 Indian forces would march into Bangladesh the next day The fixed deadline made sense because December 3 was a full-moon night Someone who was a major in the Indian army then and later became a distinguished lieutenant-general said to me after the victory: “Until the morning of December 4 my colleagues and I inside Bangladesh

to Sebastian Vettel at the Singapore Grand Prix It was supposed to be a damage limitation exercise for Mercedes after a poor performance in qualifying Instead Hamilton took a significant stride toward the world title after winning Sunday’s race from fifth place on the grid Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo prevented a Mercedes 1-2 by finishing ahead of Valtteri Bottas Fourth place went to Toro Rosso’s Carlos Sainz Jr _ a career best for the Spanish driver Vettel made one of the worst starts of his distinguished career throwing away pole position as he recklessly caused a crash heading into the first corner The Ferrari driver took three others out with him _ and critically none was a Mercedes Instead of moving ahead of Hamilton in their enthralling title battle Vettel now trails him by 28 points with six races left “It couldn’t be a more perfect scenario” Hamilton said “I definitely went in today thinking it was about damage limitation To come out of it in the other direction is a shock” Vettel was supposed to score heavily here With less speed and 23 turns the hard-braking Marina Bay circuit suited Ferrari much more than Mercedes This was further reflected in qualifying with Bottas sixth and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen starting fourth Furthermore Vettel had the Singapore record for wins (four) and podiums (six) But in a few seconds he threw it all away The German driver gunned across the track triggering first-turn mayhem and causing a domino effect as Raikkonen Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and McLaren’s Fernando Alonso all crashed with him On one of the toughest tracks in Formula One for overtaking Hamilton would have been pleased with a podium finish Instead the field opened up perfectly for the British driver to seal his third straight win seventh of the season and 60th overall “I capitalized on the incident” Hamilton said “Who could have known that would happen” Following a massive downpour several hours beforehand more heavy showers soaked the circuit just before the race which started 8 pm local time (1200 GMT) After a hesitant start Vettel veered hastily left as he tried to counter Verstappen’s strong start It was a needless move so early on and squeezed Verstappen and Raikkonen for room causing them to collide on the inside Vettel’s recklessness was even more pointless because Verstappen is not in the title race Raikkonen’s wobbling car tagged Vettel’s before spinning across the track careering spectacularly into Verstappen and Alonso “I watched the chaos unfold in front of me It was probably good that I had a bad start” said Ricciardo who has seven podiums in the past 10 races “It gave me time to see what would happen” Stewards summoned Vettel Raikkonen and Verstappen to a meeting after the race but no further action was taken Hamilton stayed left picking his spot and avoiding any danger as he moved into the lead “I saw this commotion happening” Hamilton said “Then it was all about managing the tires” After a few laps behind the safety car the race resumed for real on lap 7 Vettel was already in the garage contemplating the heavily damaged front wing and left of his car After apologizing to his team the four-time F1 champion tried to explain himself “I saw Max and then next thing I see is Kimi hitting the side of me and Max somewhere there” said Vettel who remains optimistic about his title hopes “I’m sure there will be more opportunities” Verstappen who had started from second on the grid ahead of Ricciardo blamed Vettel “When you’re fighting for a world championship you shouldn’t do that” the 19-year-old Dutchman said “It was not very clever” Vettel and Verstappen were involved in heated incidents last season and the ill feeling still seems to linger Alonso meanwhile bravely continued but retired on lap 9 “The car was completely destroyed on the left side” the Spaniard said The safety car came out again shortly after as Daniil Kvyat crashed his Toro Rosso By the next re-start on lap 15 Ricciardo had changed tires but Hamilton hadn’t Hamilton eventually changed them on lap 30 of 61 and timed it right as he was a healthy nine seconds ahead of Ricciardo afterward Marcus Ericsson stalled his Sauber on lap 39 bringing the safety car out again _ which irritated Hamilton This is because safety cars stop the leader’s momentum allowing others to close the gap Now Vettel is the one
