Bangladesh have had few breaks while playing four series and a World Cupin the last 12 months, and these two Twenty20 internationals, three ODIs and two Tests against South Africa will end their 2014-15 and 2015 seasons, which merged into one vast period. South Africa, on the other hand, are touring Bangladesh for their first international assignment since losing the World Cup semi-final to New Zealand in March.

  • Gold prices in India at deep discounts on sluggish demand

    By Rajendra Jadhav and A. Ananthalakshmi MUMBAI/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Gold prices in major consumer India were quoted at deep discounts to the global benchmark this week on tepid demand and adequate levels of inventory, dealers said. Prices were quoted at a discount of $8 to $15 an ounce over London prices, much wider than the $1 discount in mid-June, they said. Persistent weakness in India, the world's top consumer of gold last year and the No. 2 buyer in the first quarter of this year, could add pressure on global prices, which are currently just above a 3-1/2 month low.

The average expenditure, from a survey by wedding planner Duo, excludes the cost of housing, traditionally provided by parents.

  • Madrassa row: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind to move court against Maharashtra government's decision | Latest News & Updates at Daily News & Analysis

    The Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, a prominent Indian Muslim body, is planning to move court against the Maharashtra government's decision to derecognise madrassas which do not teach subjects like science and mathematics. According to an Indian Express report, the education wing of the organisation will move court against counting students who are not taught the above subjects at madrassas as 'out of school'. Mohammed Zahoor Ahmed, secretary of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind’s education wing, said they would oppose the move strongly. The government should help madrassas and its students get formal education, not threaten to brand them as non-school and ‘out-of-school’ children.

  • Vijender Singh: Punching above his weight?

    “Whoever says money isn’t important is lying.” Four years ago, boxer Vijender Singh told me this in the confines of The Lalit in Delhi. As Vijender gives up amateur boxing to turn full-time professional, perhaps the words ring truer than ever. Vijender has always had immense confidence in himself, and while sceptics insist he has “turned his back” on the country, he says honestly that he has achieved as much as he could in amateur boxing: bronze in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, bronze in the 2009 World Championships, gold in the 2012 Guangzhou Asian Games, and silver in the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. In September 2009, the International Boxing Association ranked Vijender on the top of its list for middle-weight boxers.
