Kumar (left) is team liaison officer for Honduras (Express Photo) Related News FIFA U-17 World Cup is not just a big stage for the teenaged players and their coaches but it has also provided a great opportunity for some Indian youths unconnected with the sport — as Team Liaison Officers (TLOs) Their job is to act as the bridge between FIFA and the teams be the voice of the teams who don’t know English or the local Indian language facilitate their travel around different cities and act as interpreters at press conferences Most of these TLOs are from Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) which has a reputed foreign languages programme “It’s one thing to converse in Spanish as I do with the Honduras team… But it’s a different kind of pressure when I am in front of television cameras and media and I have to get the coach’s views across” says Jitendra Kumar among those from JNU He makes it a point to pen down the key points before translating the questions for the coach or players Sometimes Jose Valladares the Honduras team’s coach speaks in rapid Spanish Jitendra then doesn’t get much time to collect his thoughts: cameras are rolling media personnel waiting to understand what was said “I have to find the appropriate English words understand the football terms and convey what he said” says Jitendra Another factor is the various dialects within a team “It’s tough to get all the dialects — there’s Franconian Alsatian Alemannic and Bavarian So it’s not just one uniform language” says Aditya Madan who is with Germany The TLOs were selected after a careful vetting process Earlier this year an advertisement was put out seeking volunteers fluent in French Korean Japanese Arabic Persian Spanish and Portuguese apart from English The applicants had to pass language tests — spoken and written — and even their accents were scrutinised For instance a TLO assigned to Colombia would not only have to know Spanish but also speak the same dialect as in Colombia They were also subjected to thorough background checks by the police Acting as interpreters at press conferences is just part of the job They take the team shopping and accompany the players everywhere — even to a hospital as in the case of Madan “One of them needed an MRI and that’s when I interacted with most of the players There are a few Turkish-origin players who asked me about Bollywood and if I had met Shah Rukh Khan” recalls Madan Ansari Abdul Rahman who is from Azamgarh and is currently pursuing his MPhil from Delhi University has been assigned to Iran “I studied Persian all my life… Persian poetry has a 2000-year-old history Iran’s coach comes from a city of great Persian poets… I don’t want to make any mistake” he says For some like Mohsin New Caledonia’s TLO it is an opportunity to learn another language While he is proficient in Spanish he is picking up Arabic as well “I would then know Spanish and Arabic… It will give me a chance to work in North African countries like Morocco Tunisia” he says Professor Vijay Rajan who is with the Mali team is a law professor at a Delhi University college He speaks French and has lived in Africa (Mali Senegal and Nigeria) for over four years Veer Kartik the Paraguay TLO who is also from JNU has been learning Spanish since 2015 Mohammad Rizvan a student from Uttar Pradesh who has been assigned to Turkey is of Turkish ancestry Vikram Rudraksh who learnt French applied for the post just before his Class XII Board exams He has been assigned to Niger He once aspired to be a footballer and still plays for Real Sports Club in Gurgaon He hopes to be a part of the Indian team “I want to do some course related to data science in college so that I can be a part of the team as a data analyst” he says For Jitendra learning Spanish is his ticket to “travelling the world and understanding different cultures” He spent the last two years trying to crack the civil services exam “I shut down my phone cut out all entertainment and just studied” he says He got through the prelims but the next step proved elusive “Language mein bahut paisa hai (There is a lot of money in language) People don’t understand that I didn’t want a 9 to 5 job at some corporate — I want more from life” he says — With inputs from Shivani Naik in Margao Sandip G in Kochi For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Seema Chishti | Updated: December 15 2014 2:13 am In the latter part of the book Gawande takes us on to the even more difficult emotional terrain of preparing for and meeting death in case of terminal illness Related News Atul Gawande US-based doctor and writer has written his most recent book ‘Being Mortal’ on some very difficult questions — about mortality and medical science and care He is also known for his “checklist manifesto” where he advocates for a checklist to help create a system for individual doctors to deal with complex medical situations and sometimes even seemingly simple ones Gawande is also researching the ability of the checklist to improve the quality of care in public hospitals in Uttar Pradesh He spoke to Seema Chishti: How did you come up with the idea of checklists for health an idea from the aviation industry It came out of my experience as a young surgeon trying to learn about effective surgery I realised that while the last century was one of an immense number of discoveries we needed something that allowed knowledge and complex skills to somehow come together into something that could make a large difference if you did it right As I looked into other fields I realised that one of the things people do when they are overwhelmed is create a checklist So we devised a checklist for surgical care to capture the most complex moments when even experts can get it wrong We tested it in Delhi Toronto Seattle and Manila and in every hospital complications and deaths fell by more than a third What about your experience with checklists in India We thought about how in the lowest income groups childbirth had emerged as a challenge There are several things that could go wrong during childbirth and though people were coming to hospitals the mortality rate was not dropping That was because of poor care So we worked with the World Health Organisation and created a checklist of 30 important steps from the time a pregnant woman comes into the hospital to when she leaves with the baby We started it in Belgaum in Karnataka and found that it improved performance to up to 80 per cent We then under the better birth programme applied it to UP on a much-bigger scale and interacted with different health centres there to identify problems and allow them to come up with their own solutions Will it work Give us some years we will tell you if it does Healthcare became a big political issue in the US and you have a system now in place in your country Does it help to make issues of healthcare political Will that help it take off in India in your opinion Two things in a person’s life really impact on it — healthcare and education We in the US and you in India are always asking why it’s not top of the agenda After many years and many unsuccessful attempts by several US presidents we have a universal healthcare programme that could cover everybody But it cost Barack Obama two elections to get here Here too health and education are important People’s experience of corruption is through their inability to access healthcare and education In UP what happened to the $2 billion that was to go towards securing rural child birth In my father’s village in rural Maharashtra a relative’s wife had to pay five years’ wages to secure a government teaching job She then had to start charging kids to pay that back So health and education have to be on the agenda when you fight corruption There are many studies that indicate that the biggest predictor of survival in childbirth is the corruption index Wherever it is low more kids make it In your latest book ‘Being Mortal’ how difficult was it to be a doctor and talk about death rather than the prospect of avoiding it It was hard on one level but at another level I am attracted to problems that confuse me and which I keep encountering when I practise In medical school we are taught how to fix a problem But not enough time is spent on problems we cannot fix When I first started practising I found I was running into problems of frailty chronic illness and old age which I wouldn’t be able to fix Our mode is always to have something more to offer another operation we can do But there comes a point when the key uncomfortable skill is to recognise that people have priorities in their life beyond just surviving another day It requires us to ask them when treatments start to fail as to what they want from life There are multiple studies that show that early treatments benefit people But if and when they start failing and you discussed it with them they often choose to not take the aggressive course of action and spend more time at home or as active as possible We find that not only does their quality of life improve but they live 25 per cent longer than those who continue to opt for the more aggressive course of treatment How much does your Indian past inform your philosophy in a way that you are conscious of and can recognise I don’t know I feel like someone who has become part of many worlds I grew up in diverse settings — a small town in Ohio a college education that let me go to Stanford Oxford I was based in the medical Mecca of Boston married into an old southern family from the US and my mum came from Gujarat my father from rural Maharashtra and they met in New York Every bit of this feeds into me who I am what I write about I love the ability to ask questions that move across all of this I have had discussions about what dying meant in Boston Ohio and Delhi — each remarkably different but with patterns that are universal and bridge across
