  • Cricket: Gayle force keeps India on toes

    Defending champions India will look to continue their recent success against Chris Gayle when they clash with the West Indies in the World Cup at the WACA ground in Perth on Friday. The explosive left-hander has not passed 50 in his last 10 one-day innings against India and not hit a century against them since 2006, but Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men know that does not guarantee another cheap wicket. Just last week, Gayle hammered a record World Cup score of 215 off 147 balls against Zimbabwe in Canberra, demolishing the bowling attack like only he or South Africa's AB de Villiers can do.

    Virat Kohli can never be the next Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli may bat like Tendulkar, and smash all the records in the game, but until he realises there are several other things in this world to respect other than a good-length delivery, he is never going to earn the kind of admiration and love that players like Tendulkar, Brian Lara and others have through their exploits. What transpired between Kohli and a senior Indian journalist in Perth on Tuesday over something written about his personal life needs to be condemned in the strongest possible terms.

  • After beef ban, Hindu groups force abattoirs to close

    By Meenakshi Sharma MUMBAI (Reuters) - Members of a Hindu nationalist group have forced several abattoirs in Maharashtra to shut after a law was passed banning the beef trade there, a leader of the group and a lawyer for meat traders said on Wednesday. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad, or World Hindu Council, a nationalist group linked to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ruling party, acted after winning a court order to stop the killing of bulls and bullocks. "Members of the VHP came to Deonar abattoir late at night and asked us to stop the slaughter, showing the copy of the High Court order," said Mohammad Ali Qureshi, president of the Bombay Suburban Beef Dealers Association. The beef trade is mainly controlled by minority Muslims, raising concern that the ban is driven by Modi loyalists pursuing a Hindu agenda.

  • ˜1,162 Pakistan accounts swindle Indians' | The Asian Age

    In what could well have serious security and financial ramifications for the country, security agencies have unearthed a major racket worth several crores being operated by Pakistan-based organisations to cheat Indians through a network of their local operatives, who would open accounts with various banks in which the gullible victims would be lured to deposit substantial amounts. Top intelligence sources said operatives based in Pakistan are using an elaborate “telephone-bank-hawala structure� to defraud unsuspecting Indians. The gullible victims are asked to deposit processing charges into a bank account to claim the cash prize of a lottery. Indian associates also hire such bank accounts from small depositors for a small monthly rent and earn adequate commission, sources said.

    By Jane Wardell SYDNEY (Reuters) - A year on from the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an extraordinary amount of key data remains unknown - fuelling conspiracy theories and heated online debate about one of aviation's biggest mysteries. The resulting theories range from the wild - alien abduction, MH370 and its doomed fleetmate MH17 were the same plane - to sober, science-based arguments that the plane is in the southern Indian Ocean, but not necessarily in the current search area. "It's amazing how much information we don't have after looking at this case for all this time," said Jeff Wise, an aviation expert whose recently published Kindle book 'The Plane That Wasn't There' reached No.1 on Amazon's bestseller lists.

  • December 16 gangrape documentary: Akhtar, Aga focus on ‘mindset of Indian men’

    As political parties expressed anguish at the interview of a convict of the December 16 gangrape case, it was left to two nominated members of Rajya Sabha to become the voice of reason. Anu Aga and Javed Akhtar pointed out that that in the outrage over the comments of the accused, the real issue of the mindset of the Indian male is being glossed over. It is a good thing that the documentary was made so that millions of Indian men got to know that they think like a rapist. If this is dirty, they should change their own mindset,” Akhtar said, referring to debates in Rajya Sabha where members have occasionally advocated behaviour and dress codes for women to stay safe.
