and dissipate even as other kingdoms rush in to rebuild on the settling debris of legacy already past Some legacies persist however as tenacious reminders of the many histories they’ve seen over time Cordoba the Andalusian city in southern Spain is one such place and the Mezquita-Catedral de Cordoba is one such site The Crusades had taken their toll on the Iberian peninsula In 1492 Isabella and Ferdinand (Queen Isabella I of Castile and King Ferdinand II of Aragon) completed the Reconquista (wars for controlling the Iberian Peninsula) which led to the Church regaining power and the elimination of Muslims and Jews Isabella and Ferdinand had entered Granada and promised religious freedoms But all promises were broken Traces of the purge that followed can still be found in contemporary Spain Names sights and even cuisine that emphasised pork (for instance hanging pork outside homes to prove that there was nothing Jewish or Muslim about you) have become signature themes about Spanish life Often the awareness of these trends is rooted in ignorance about the fear of persecution that started the practice of displaying one’s Christianity Spain was purged of its Arab-Islamic-Moor past but Alhambra the biggest mosque complex in Europe survived in Granada However perhaps of far greater interest is the more twisted testament to history — the Mezquita-Catedral de Cordoba A fully functioning cathedral since 1146 the Mezquita-Catedral started out as a Roman-Visgothic structure then was made into a mosque in 786 seeing three broad extensions and also the addition of a minaret The Hagia Sophia in Istanbul also alternated between being a church and a mosque and it has a haunting presence But the sense of a confluence of cultures that seems bestowed in the Mezquita-Catedral renders it a class apart Abd al-Rahman-I the ruler who got it built thought of it as a horizontal space and not a vertical wonder Those familiar with mosques of its time say the distinction is important Other structure such as the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem or the Mosque of Damascus are thought of as vertical tributes to the greatness of God But this was thought of as reimagining the basic concept of a simple Islamic horizontal prayer space Cordoba Spain view of the Roman Bridge and Mosque-Cathedral on the Guadalquivir River (Source: Thinkstock images) The gold and

discussions on medicine and much else When the ‘Enlightenment’ opened up Europe again a lot of the Greek ideas re-emerged only because of translations that were preserved by the Arab thinkers However

Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Abdul Khaliq | Published: August 23 2014 1:51 am The new government has moved positively towards righting “the ship of state” Related News Critics of the NDA government point to the disjunction between its magic-wand election promises and the seemingly unimpressive beginning Under siege the government’s defence is that it needs more time to undo the damage done by the UPA With spiralling prices and inflation fanned by a dismal monsoon and skyrocketing oil costs the unbridled optimism of three months ago has all but dissipated But amidst this gloom there is one important area where this government has already made a perceptible difference There is sufficient evidence to show that after three years of unmitigated non-governance the new government has moved positively towards righting “the ship of state” Let me explain In its last three years the UPA had eroded the authority of the political executive through its misdeeds and ineptness It all began to unravel in 2011 when the government showed utter insensitivity to public outrage over confirmed reports that the Commonwealth Games top brass had in the midst of other unpardonable financial irregularities even procured toilet rolls at Rs 4500 each In similar crass fashion it took no deterrent action in the 2G and coal block scams until the Supreme Court rapped its knuckles The cowardly pandering to Anna Hazare’s Jan Lokpal bullying to the extent of senior UPA ministers cravenly receiving renowned yoga guru and then Anna groupie Ramdev at the Delhi airport made the UPA the laughing stock of the nation and irretrievably damaged its authority In the neverending orgy of government-bashing that followed even the then Comptroller and Auditor General happily shed his sacred responsibility of non-partisanship and publicly lambasted the government with the licentiousness of an Arvind Kejriwal His exaggerated over-the-top calculations of losses in 2G were contested with facts and figures by UPA spokespersons but nobody believed them so low was the government’s stock with the people Ashok Khemka a serving IAS officer brazenly defied government conduct rules as he preened before TV cameras and exposed the venality of the government It was a free-for-all Significantly during this period of virtual non-governance the Supreme Court stepped into the breach and took upon itself the responsibility of making the law in addition to its legitimate duty of interpreting it It directed the government to enhance the powers and independence of the CBI The apex court’s twin judgments arbitrating that any person jailed even temporarily is debarred from contesting elections to legislatures provoked the drafting of the controversial bill on convicted legislators that was so dramatically torn up in the full glare of the media a hypocritical gesture that did nothing to redeem the UPA’s sullied image but further reinforced the view that the titular leadership counted for nothing The UPA’s pathetic attempt to become an anti-corruption crusader by seeking to clear pending anti-graft bills while teetering on its last legs evoked contemptuous amusement By the end of its tenure the government headed by a leading economist turned cipher had completely undermined the authority of the political executive In the short period of three months there has been a sea change in the dynamics of governance The government has emphatically regained control of its turf and thereby restored the equilibrium between the judiciary and the political executive which is so vital for a vibrant democracy In true democratic tradition there has already been a healthy tug-of-war between the Supreme Court and the government on issues relating to the appointment of judges which is how it should be It is also good to see that the bureaucracy that along with the political class and the business community has grievously hurt this country is now being called to account So far this government has been doing it right and despite a slow start on the economic front there is still a collective passion to see this government succeed To some extent this mass endorsement can be traced to the near universal aversion to the previous dispensation which seems to have learnt nothing from its rout The new government has emphatically re-established the authority and dignity of the political executive However it would do well to heed Kenneth Galbraith’s perceptive observation that “the success of a society is deeply dependent on the operation of a multiplicity of institutions that check and balance the force and possible domination that might otherwise be exercised by one institution” The writer a former civil servant is secretary general of
