Indian Premier League: Just go, play and bowl! Mustafizur Rahman’s mantra for success

first_imgBangladesh’s pace sensation Mustafizur Rahman is approaching his first year in the Indian Premier League (IPL) with an “open mind”.The young seamer is not setting himself a specific target but is not worried about his participation in the lucrative Twenty20 tournament, starting April 9, reports bdnews24.com.He just wants to perform well and pick up a wider range of skills.Mustafizur will be playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad who face the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their opening match on April 12.”What is there to think about? I really don’t think much about anything. Just go, play and bowl – that’s it,” Mustafizur said on Wednesday.Bangladesh crashed to four successive defeats in the Super 10s of the World Twenty20 last month. (Also Read: Dhoni one of the best captains in the world, says DJ Bravo)Mustafizur, who joined the team in the second match of the round after recovering from an injury, shone bright with nine wickets in three matches.Hyderabad franchise mentor V.V.S. Laxman saw the youngster in action when he burst onto the scene in the One-Day series against India in June last year.The former India batsman had his eyes on Mustafizur since then as the Sunrisers managed to sign him up in the auction by outbidding the Bangalore franchise earlier this year.Laxman, also a professional commentator, has always praised Mustafizur from the commentary box. He and Mustafizur, however, did not cross paths during the showcase event in India.”I am not really good in either English or Hindi, maybe that’s why we did not meet up,” Mustafizur said.advertisementHe bamboozled the New Zealand batsmen in their last match, returning 5/22 against New Zealand. That was the best bowling figures in a match in the just concluded World T20.The Sunrisers’ fast bowling unit also includes Kiwi speedster Trent Boult, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Abhimanyu Kumar and Australia’s Ben Cutting. So Mustafizur has to really bowl well for a place in the playing eleven.But despite the obvious challenge, the southpaw also sees an opportunity to learn from these world class bowlers, “Definitely looking to learn with so many left-arm pacers in the pack.”last_img read more

Budhia is not missing, likely to return soon: Minister

first_imgBhubaneswar, Jul 8 (PTI) The Odisha government today said child marathon runner Budhia Singh was not missing and he was likely to return to the sports hostel here in the next four days. “Budhia Singhs mother had yesterday told a local news channel that they are in Nayagarh. We are expecting him to return to sports hostel in two to four days,” Sports and Youth Affairs Secretary Saswat Mishra told reporters following local media report that the boy was missing. Mishra said Budhia did not return to sports hostel after summer vacation last month. Besides Budhia, eight sports persons had not returned to hostel. They used to return to hostel within a fortnight of reopening of the SAI hostel here at Kalinga Stadium. As Budhia did not return to hostel and even remained abscent in school, the hostel authorities had sent letters to his house in Salia Sahi slum. Four coaches of the sports hostel also visited Budhias mothers home at the slum. “Our coaches met Budhias elder sister. She informed that they are out of Bhubaneswar,” said Mishra. Rupanwita Panda, sports hostel in-charge and Budhias coach, said the runner, who had left the hostel during summer vacation in May, had been asked to join the coaching camp on June 4. “When he did not meet the date, I wrote a letter to Budhia on June 23 asking him to return to the sports hostel within a week. As I did not get a reply of my letter which I had sent through post, I wrote another letter and sent four coaches of the Sports Hostel to hand over the letter to Budhia at Salia Sahi. But the coaches did not find Budhia in his house, while his sister informed the coaches that Budhia has gone to the village and will return within four days. But till date, he has not reported to me,” she said. Budhia Singhs neighbourers said the the boy and his mother were not seen in the slum for the last one month. Budhia came to the limelight after he set a new Limca record by successfully running a marathon of 65 km from Puri to Bhubaneswar in seven hours in May, 2006 at the tender age of four. The state government had given shelter to Budhia Singh in the sports hostel after several child rights activists alleged exploitation of the boy. The Child Welfare Committee, Khurda, had also levelled allegations of child exploitation against Budhias mentor and coach Biranchi Das. The police later conducted a health check up of Budhia based on the CWCs allegation. The report was placed before the Orissa High Court. The court had then observed that considering his age and health, Budhia should not be allowed to participate in marathon. PTI AAM PR AH AH SNPadvertisementlast_img read more

Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh get used to fatherhood

first_imgAway from national duty, cricketers and new dads Harhbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina are relishing their time with newly-born daughters. While Raina became father in May midway through the IPL, Harbhajan Singh and wife Geeta Basra welcomed their first child in the last week of July.”See closely, you’ll see the dark circles below my eyes. Hardly get much sleep these days,” Raina joked in a frewheeling chat with INDIA TODAY on Sunday. “But, hats off to Priyanka (Raina’s wife). She has really managed it well. No matter how much I am tired, just a glimpse of my daughter makes me feel rejuvenated immediately. There are of course some challenges at the start but then everything falls in place. (Goddess) Lakshmi has come to our home.”Harbhajan Singh can’t hide his excitement either. In India for a few hours, he’s ready to hop on to a flight back to London, finding it hard to stay away from his daughter.”I am thankful to my employers Air India as because of them I can fly to London so frequently and spend time with my daughter there. I have realised that there is nothing bigger in life. Whether you play 100 Tests, win World Cup, get all the medals in the world… Nothing is bigger than this feeling. Your kids are your biggest medals. I am realising this now after becoming a father. Earlier, my friends used to say all this. Now I endorse it 200 per cent. I am really proud to be a dad,” says the spinner who has 417 wickets to his name from 103 Tests.  advertisementRaina has even etched his daughter Gracia’s name on his arm.”We (he and his wife Priyanka) always wanted to have a daughter. It feels so good to see that daughters are winning medals for India. Daugthers have a special bonding with their father. I saw it myself with my didi in our family. There is happiness all around with a daughter,” he says.Sleep deprivation doesn’t bother Harbhajan.”When she sleeps, we sleep. When she is up, we are up. I am doing all to be a great dad to her. Just want to be the best one for my little one. Hopefully, I can fulfil all her needs. I just want to thank the almighty for giving me this lovely diamond. My respect for females has increased a thousand times after having a daughter. We are what we are because of them.”While Raina is captaining India Green in the ongoing Duleep Trophy, Harbhajan opted out of the tournament.”I don’t want to miss this time with my daughter right now. I want to be with her. These moments are special. That is why I requested BCCI. I also want to congratulate them for taking the game to the USA. I am sure Team India will be missing Suresh Raina. He has been a fantastic cricketer for India. He will make a comeback soon. And, so would I,” Harbhajan says as Raina chuckles.”I am working hard, Duleep Trophy is on. We played well in the first match but didn’t get the result we wanted. Playing with the pink ball for the first time that too under lights. It was a new experience. We’ll improve soon,” Raina added.last_img read more

Cool Toys for Boys (that Dads Will Also Love to Play With)

first_imgFirst off, let’s be clear here: These aren’t just great toys for boys, they’re great toys for kids. But “cools toys for boys and girls” doesn’t have the same rhyme quality to it, and this is The Manual, dammit, so let’s just go with it. Also, at the time of this writing, I only have one kid who happens to be a boy. If you’re reading this after March 2018, though, I’ll have a daughter too (hey, thanks!), so I may amend the title down the line.Steven John/The ManualSteven John/The ManualLet me assure you that the toys we’re discussing today were carefully selected after a rigorous testing process involving a four-year-old boy playing with them for hours on end, day after day, for weeks and even months, which is like years in an adult’s frame of reference. These are not random things I spotted online during a half-assed, 10-minute search — each of these toys are genuine  favorites in our house, and they will surely rise to the top of the proverbial toy basket in yours.Magna-Tiles All 21 Six Flags Parks in the U.S., Ranked Our son got his first set of Magna-Tiles when he was just shy of two. Then, he could barely separate a pair of squares that became stuck together, and it was not until a few months after his second birthday that he was building rudimentary cubes and prisms. Flash forward two years, and he can now spend an hour constructing elaborate parking garages (they’re always parking garages … I don’t really know where that started) that he will then fill with matchbox cars and little figurines. 1 of 2 Previous Nope. The kid was following the step-by-step programming and building projects within minutes. Within a few hours, Ben was coming up with his own experiments, using the various “blocks” (which consist of things like an LED light panel, a mini speaker, and a Bluetooth enabled widget) to create original projects that he managed to program using the app with minimal help from his mom. I would not recommend this toy for a child younger than four, but would heartily recommend it for age four through death. The Inventor Kit sells for $120, and is but one of many sets the brand offers for a variety of ages.See it Previous Here’s how it works: Each month, your child receives a package filled with an activity booklet, photos, stickers, mini books, souvenirs, and other items all tied to a theme. These include world landmarks, oceans, and more, and many of the kits relate to and expand upon earlier packages. The first month’s Traveler Kit, for example, has a large map that clearly depicts the continents and oceans and teaches kids (and parents) all about how Little Passports works. The second package takes a deep dive (heh) into the world’s oceans.And whoa, OK, side bar — I am not making this up. Just now, at the time of writing this very article, my son knocked on the office door and came in to say, “There’s this really cool Little Passports ocean experiment me and mommy just did, do you want to come and see it?” Which, of course, I did. Turns out they were learning about salinity in oceans and the resulting buoyancy of the water. Through the lens of Little Passports, science, social studies, and geography are made so exciting to young children that they have to interrupt their dad’s work just to tell them. Which is fine by me. Early Explorers package (ages three to five years old) start at $17 per month and are discounted when you sign up for a full year. You can compare all of the subscription options here.See itBRIO TrainsSteven John/The ManualSteven John/The ManualLook, if you don’t have some train toys, you’re doing it wrong. Our son and just about every other kid I know has been playing with BRIO trains (or with Melissa & Doug trains, or one of the other few varieties wooden track toys, almost all of which are compatible) from the early toddler years well into their elementary years. BRIO trains are great for two reasons, though the second one comes with a caveat. Next Editors’ Recommendations Next First, the basic sets are so easy to use that even very young kids will enjoy them. Second, there are so many different expansion kits out there that BRIO trains play can become ever more complex and involved, keeping kids engaged even as they grow older. The issue is that you are going to spend a lot of money on these things over the years/ We suggest starting with the $40 My First Railway Beginner Pack.See itMakeblock Neuron Inventor KitSteven John/The ManualSteven John/The ManualThis one was a stretch for us, as Makeblock Neuron Inventor Kits are recommended for kids starting at age six (ours is four, to refresh your memory), and even though Ben has always had an interest in, and an aptitude, for all things mechanical, robotic, digital, and so forth, I thought that a toy involving programming and coding via iPad app (or tablet or computer) and constructing multi-component devices that are controlled by said programming might be a bit too much.

And I will readily admit that even at age 35 these things are lots of fun to play with, so don’t let their rather steep price tag throw you — you’ll get your money’s worth. I mean … your kid will get your money’s worth. They help develop fine motor skills, spatial reasoning, and might tease out some of the skills nascent in a budding structural engineer. The 100-piece set sells for $120 on Amazon and is worth every penny.See itLittle PassportsSteven John/The ManualSteven John/The ManualI have to admit I was a bit skeptical about Little Passports at first. There seemed to be a lot of material a child would need to absorb before the fun could actually start, what with new characters (who serve as global guides) to get to know, maps to study, activity books to be read and digested, and so forth. Frankly, the whole process looked more like school work than play time to me. But apparently the people behind this thoroughly researched and carefully curated program knew what they were doing.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi gives new lease of life to Agarbatti Industry

first_imgIt seems Achche Din (good days) have come for the Agarbatti Manufacturers in India, after the Government ordered to put Raw Agarbatti and other odoriferous items under ‘Restricted Category’ of import on August 29 this year.First it was the Bangalore Declaration of ‘All India Agarbatti Manufacturers’ on September 7, in which some 250 participants pledged that they will create at least 5.5 lakh direct employments in six months. Dawood Khan H, who was compelled to put the shutters down of his Agarbatti Manufacturing unit in Vellore district in Tamil Nadu, said,”The import of raw agarbatti and round bamboo sticks had broken our spine. It was the heroic and historic decision made by the Government. I have already started cleaning and overhauling the machines in my unit – lying defunct from the last several years. The revival would have remained a mirage for us if the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) Chairman V K Saxena had not appraised the concerned Ministers about the pathetic conditions of KVIC’s PMEGP units of Agarbatti-making.” Khan’s unit had once upon a time provided employment to at least 1,500 women of the area. After getting overwhelming response from the Agarbatti Manufacturers in Bangalore, the KVIC Chairman decided to take stock of Agarbatti units in North-East states. During his visit to Guwahati and Agartala last week, Saxena was foxed to see that the Agarbatti manufacturers of that area – which is believed to be the Bamboo-hub of India – were also on the receiving end due to heavy import. “It is really a happy moment for me that after the government’s decision, almost all the units have become operational and some of them have started production in three shifts to meet the demand,” Saxena said. After North-East, KVIC Chairman visited Gujarat on September 18, to meet the Agarbatti manufacturers there. For Bhavik Shah, the Secretary of Gujarat Agarbatti Manufacturers and Dealers Association (GAMDA) – an organisation consisting of 1,500 manufactures, dealers and perfumers, Narendra Modi has given a lease of life to Agarbatti Industry in India, which had lost its way due to unabated import of Raw Agarbatti and Roubd Bamboo Sticks. “All the members of GAMDA have unanimously pledged to double their production and plant at least five saplings of Jaati Baans,” he said. “These overwhelming response from all breadths and lengths of Agarbatti Industry have dashed the myth created by the group of importers, who had been claiming that India doesn’t have potential to be self-dependent in Agarbatti production,” said Saxena.last_img read more

Man gets life imprisonment for setting afire 14yrold girl who refused to

first_imgMadurai: A 24-year-old man was sentenced to life imprisonment and fined Rs 10,000 by a Mahila court here on Thursday for killing a minor school girl in 2018 by setting her ablaze for spurning his marriage proposal. Judge A Flora said the evidence and documents presented by the prosecution proved the case. According to the prosecution, the 14-year-old girl, who resided in a village near Tirumangalam in the district, was doused with petrol and set ablaze by Balamurugan, a mill worker, who was related to her. He was angry at the girl for rejecting his marriage proposal, the prosecution said. The minor’s mother, who happened to be passing by at the time of the incident, came to her rescue and admitted her to a hospital with 70 per cent burns. She died later. The girl’s parents had approached police a few times, complaining of alleged harassment by Balamurugan. The harassment continued for six months, they claimed. Balamurugan had come on a two-wheeler with a can of petrol to set her ablaze and fled the scene afterwards, they said. Police had registered cases against him under relevant sections for murder and the POCSO Act.last_img read more

New Delhi Garlic prices jumped up to 40 per cent

first_imgNew Delhi: Garlic prices jumped up to 40 per cent in the last one month even after production of this crop was 76 per cent higher than the previous year. On Monday, garlic price in Delhi was Rs 200 per kilogram. Meanwhile in Rajasthan’s Kota the wholesale price of the best quality garlic was Rs 17,000 per quintal, meaning Rs 170 per kilogram. In Madhya Pradesh’s Neemuch, another key market for the crop, garlic was sold at Rs 8,000-Rs 16,000 per quintal on Monday. Traders said that prices of special quality garlic were hitting more than Rs 20,000 per quintal. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: Icra”Presently, 15,000 bags (50 kg in each) of garlic are coming in the Neemuch market every day and the maximum demand is from South India. In the past one month garlic prices have soared to Rs 5,000 per quintal,” said Piyush Goyal, a trader at Neemuch market. Goyal said the fields are water-logged after the recent rains that may delay the sowing of the crop. This is the reason behind the increasing prices. Uttam Chand, a trader from Rajasthan, said: “The stocked garlic was rotten due to moisture after the rains. Now, there is less stock which is the main reason behind rising prices”. The prices of onions and tomatoes went up drastically in the last few days due to heavy rains. The onion price in Delhi’s retail market is still touching Rs 50 per kg while tomato is being sold at Rs 40 per kg. Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysTraders said the late rains will delay sowing. In this situation people will have to depend on stocks till the next crop comes. The lesser incoming in the markets may shoot up the prices, a trader said. According to the Agriculture Ministry statistics for forestry crops’ estimated production, garlic production is 28.36 lakh tonnes in 2018-19 while last year it was 16.11 lakh tonnes. It means the garlic production is 76 per cent extra this year. India is among the biggest producers of garlic in the world while China tops the list.last_img read more
