  • From Jos Buttler fortifying Mumbai Indians to KKR's faith in pace: SWOT analysis of IPL auction, Part II

    Kolkata Knight Riders have gone in for some serious firepower in the ‘mini’ auction which probably indicates that they are looking at an IPL life beyond Sunil Narine. Alternately they might be looking for more options on pacy pitches. Five of their purchases are very handy fast bowlers. The choice of Australian John Hastings, West Indies' tall all rounder and skipper Jason Holder, UP’s young, impressive Ankit Rajpoot (Rs 1.5 cr) and left arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat would suggest a shift in priorities. To boot they have also signed up New Zealand’s explosive all-rounder Colin Munro who can also bowl medium pace. If he comes to terms with Indian conditions his batting could be the game changer for

  • U.S. dollar falls with oil, equities as markets seek safety

    The U.S. dollar fell sharply on Tuesday to its lowest level in nearly four months, as measured by an index of major currencies, with fears of a global economic slowdown pushing investors into safe-haven currencies like the Japanese yen and Swiss franc. The U.S. dollar index (.DXY), which measures the greenback against a basket of world currencies, fell to 95.663, its lowest since Oct. 22 on Tuesday. Given the dismal performance of oil and equity markets, and the market's lack of faith in the Federal Reserve's forecast for four interest rate rises this year, investors are unsure of how to value the dollar, said John Doyle, director of markets at Tempus Inc in Washington.

  • Dear Maneka Gandhi, don’t let beti bachao become beti bhagao

    Recently speaking at an event, Maneka Gandhi, Women and Child Welfare Minister, in response to a question on how people employed different means to detect the gender of an unborn child despite the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act mentioned that her ministry had sent a proposal to the Health Ministry to make sex determination compulsory instead of it being unauthorised and punishable by law. Barely had she said this, her ministry as well as the health ministry, as has become the habit with BJP, denied that any such suggestion was being discussed. Maybe the minister isn’t aware of the basis and reasons why the sex determination tests were banned in India or maybe she isn’t aware of the misogyny that pervades around the birth of a female child or worse doesn’t fathom how humungous a task it would be to monitor each pregnancy, in violation of a woman’s rights, after sex of the unborn child is known.

Brent crude oil settled down $2.56, or 7.8 percent, at $30.32 a barrel.
