teammate out We did speak about it between the overs … he said to me ‘I’m looking for it” “It was one of those great pieces of fielding They (Bangladesh fielders) were very close I knew that they were close and my (call of) ‘no’ probably wasn’t early enough” “Pete is an exceptional player an exceptional athlete But it can get to anyone Just being out there and we were turning those twos into ones

bring that back up They’re extreme conditions for both teams” Warner said Meanwhile Peter Handscomb after playing a brilliant knock of 82 recalled how his training with his father helped him during his innings”That was just something my dad taught me when I was a lot younger We just used to go down to the nets and get on the bowling machine and he used to just say run at everything” “He’d throw the ball didn’t matter how fast I’d use my feet and get down the wicket and basically just try and cope with it” “And then over the years obviously adjusted my game kept practicing it kept getting

campaigned to induct India into the NSG a media report said on Monday Representational image Reuters The ties between the two countries have plummeted over differences about how to deal with the Taliban in Afghanistan and allegation by the US that Pakistan failed to root out militants groups Nadeem Hotiana Pakistan Embassy spokesman in Washington confirmed the country was now looking for a paid lobbyist “but has not yet taken any decision” the Dawn reported Earlier Locke Lord Strategies was hired in 2008 to lobby for Pakistan but Islamabad failed to renew its contract with the firm in July 2013 The group was hired by government of Pakistan People’s Party mainly because one of its partners Mark Siegel was a personal friend of the late prime Minister Benazir Bhutto The embassy was paying USD 75000 per month to this group which is the lobbying arm of the law firm Locke Lord but it failed to improve Pakistan’s image Pakistan’s main expectation from the firm was to promote its interests on Capitol Hill where it often has to face angry lawmakers every time an issue related to the country is discussed But the firm had little influence on the Hill It proved equally ineffective in lobbying the US media for Pakistan There were occasions when the embassy’s press section managed to gather more senior journalists than did the firm for official briefings and for group or individual meetings with visiting Pakistani leaders To be fair to Locke Lord some of the issues it had to deal with during this period (2008-13) were beyond its control Even the most influential lobbyists would have found it impossible to plead Pakistan’s case on the Hill in media or in Washington’s power corridors after Osama bin Laden’s discovery in Abbottabad the paper said Yet there were other issues on which the firm could do better but it did not This bitter experience — and financial problems — forced Pakistan to let its contract with Locke Lord expire Instead of hiring a new lobbyist the PML-N government decided to use Pakistani diplomats for the job it said Pakistani diplomats did a decent job initially but then ties between the two countries began to deteriorate The Obama administration which was close to completing its final term wanted some arrangement in Kabul that would allow it to say that it successfully ended America’s longest and the costliest foreign war By the time Pakistani officials started publicly acknowledging that they can try but cannot force the Taliban to join the reconciliation process it was already too late Diplomatic observers in Washington say that in these circumstances even the best lobbyist could only try to improve Pakistan’s image particularly on the Hill but cannot promise to deliver “So Pakistan must think carefully before hiring a new lobbyist as it costs money and a lot of it” said one observerWritten by Goyal Divya For all the latest Ahmedabad News, Reuters “There is no place for disabled like me in the

misalignment the greater the chance of stability The combination of a floating exchange rate with low inflation can help ensure a stable rupee when the time comes for the US to raise rates A third element of the strategy has to be domestic demand compression The economy has slowed down and so the main instrument in this scenario will be the fiscal deficit The fiscal deficit has to be contained to reduce total demand in the system This will keep the current account deficit under control It has been seen that countries with low fiscal deficits current account deficits and inflation rates have been more stable in the time of the taper India should focus on these fundamentals This will ensure that one there is little pressure on the rupee and two even if there is pressure India does not react in a knee-jerk manner with capital controls and restrictions on financial markets as it did last time There is no substitute for an approach that seeks to shore up the basics The NRI deposit

trying to make doping a criminal offence so that fear is instilled in the players and they restrain from getting involved in such practices” said Goel Moreover the minister added that the players who grab medals at school and college levels should undergo tests for dope in order to prevent the youngsters getting involved in it “We are planning to take signatures of the players besides showing them films on doping and basically educating and spreading awareness about it” said the minister “I think at least those who win medals at the school and college levels should be tested for dope” he added Goel went on to say that the students who have applied in Delhi University under sports quota fail to get admission the department would conduct a separate trail for them “All those who will fail to get admission in the Delhi University we would hold trials for them and the chosen ones would be put in some of the Sports Authority of India (SAI) centres” said Goel “Whenever I get a chance I visit various SAI centres in the country but in most of them I have found coaches to be not up to the mark I have asked all SAI coaches to undergo medical and fitness examinations and will take action based on their reports” Talking about enhancing and improving the facilities for players Goel told that the ministry is regularly holding regular meetings withNational Sports Federations “We are working closely with the NSFs I hold regular meetings with them and are looking at ways to improve the facilities for the players But at the same time we have to ensure transparency and accountability of these NSFs” Mentioning about the weight categories that would be revoked for the next Olympics he said that the NSFs would keep the ministry updated aboutabolition and addition of categories in their respective sports “We should not be investing in those weight categories which are not there anymore in the Olympics I have told all concerned NSFs to keep the ministry updated with the abolition and

50 percent mark “We have already reached 65 figure mark and taken around 5000 schools under the initiative There has been a progress on that front” said Goel The minister was quick to respond when he

rain leaves civic life in a gigantic mess from Delhi-NCR to Mumbai to Bangalore to Chennai Roads and areas get inundated residents in localities keep scrambling for higher safe ground traffic comes to a grinding halt; in short normal life gets choked in every possible way We are leaving out remote places such as Assam or Odisha which face the fury of rain and floods every year because the cities mentioned above are the loci of India’s political financial and technological power the show pieces of India’s urbanisation story If things can go so bad at these places then the condition of the rest of India is only left to one’s imagination Every time s normallife getsthrown out of gear due to rains we get the usual drivel as the dominating narrative Ruling parties point to legacy issues and the opposition to the incompetence of the incumbent government Organisations pass the buck and officials concerned cook up alibis and seek to make them palatable The tribe of experts point to the flaws in town-planning the same ones they had mentioned last year and the year before All we get are grand excuses and explanations and the impression that everyone is biding for time waiting for the trouble to pass After that all would be back to the world of wonderful illusion which gets different names under different governments Smart City is the one is circulation now The country loves to be on the beautiful rocking horse seriously believing things are moving forward making our lives incredibly better No one would ask the question why things are the way they are why spells of heavy rainfall have been causing urban chaos year after year after year Mumbai’s infamous potholes have been making big news for long Governments have changed How come the problem remains where it is Poor civic planning is cited as the major lacunae behind all that have been going wrong – by now we know every other single reason thanks to extensive media coverage – but why haven’t we seen corrective action Flooded roads in Mathura PTI The biggest reason perhaps is citizens’ indifference Political apathy rides easy piggyback on that Here’s an example: Women’s safety in Delhi the National Capital became a national concern after the December 16 2012 gang rape of a paramedical student There was unending television outrage street protests candle light marches political rant and what not More than three years on Delhi continues to be as unsafe as before As reports in newspapers suggest nothing has changed on the ground Citizens demanded a tough anti-rape law the political class was happy to provide that It knew making a law is the easiest part the real challenge is to improve the quality of policing Since there has been no demand for that things remain where they were One wonders when the next such crime against women hit the headlines what will be the demand from the citizenry The matter is the same with the disruption of life due to monsoon showers The citizenry has no idea what or how to demand or it’s just too indifferent to its own woes Like other stakeholders it just wants the trouble to go away A bit of sunshine and dry roads things are back to normal for him It’s also possible that he is too powerless to keep on fighting the official machinery But whatever the case what we finally get is empty talk inaction and a repeat of the past Next monsoon stay prepared to hear more of the same maybe in better prose or with an added dash of political guile Rains will never stop showing us our reality in all its nakedness but it’s for us to choose whether we learn any lessons New Delhi: The prohibition on Indians flying drones is likely to be lifted soon as the rules for flying unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are slated to be finalised by next month with aviation regulator DGCA giving final touches to them The consultation process with stakeholders has been completed and the guidelines are being given final touches Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) chief M Sathiyavathy said “We had discussions with all the stakeholders It (the guidelines) is almost finalised We are giving final touches” she said A government order of October last year prohibits the launch of UAVs by any non-government agency organisation or an individual Representational image Reuters The DGCA had come out with draft guidelines in April this year and the stakeholders including security and defence agencies were given time till 21 May to submit their comments on them When asked by when the final guidelines would be in place the DGCA chief said “most likely by early next month” In view of the rapid technological advancements in unmanned flying devices over the years and their increased use in everyday life it has become necessary to develop guidance material to regulate this activity officials had said In the US and the western world there have been growing instances of drones and other UAVs coming into the flight paths of aircraft especially near busy airports leading some of these countries to formulate rules to regulate these operations In the past few months DGCA had discussed with officials of Civil Aviation Defence and Home Ministries along with those from other agencies and formulated the draft guidelines on the basis of the suggestions and observations at these meetings Among others DGCA has proposed that drone users would have to secure permit and a unique identification number for their operations “Civilian use of UAS (unmanned aircraft system) includes damage assessment of property and life in areas affected with natural calamities surveys; critical infrastructure monitoring among others UA (unmanned aircraft) operations present problems to the regulator in terms of ensuring safety of other users of airspace and persons on the ground” the DGCA had said in its draft guidelines Currently the Aircraft Rules of the DGCA do not cover the use of drones as well as their sale and purchase then one can think about
