Gautam Gambhir Sidelined Again

Is this the end for the southpaw from New Delhi?

New Delhi [12-09-2016] : The team announcement for the upcoming Test series of the Indian side against the New Zealand was not only a setback for Gautam Gambhir but it also brought a huge disappointment for his fans too.

Sandip Patil and company announced the fifteen man squad for the three match Test series against the Black Caps starting from 22nd September.

K.L Rahul who is been in golden touch with the bat has been retained along with the inconsistent Shikhar Dhawan and struggling Rohit Sharma who failed to make an impact in the ongoing Duleep trophy.

Gautam Gambhir who has been in the fine form in the current Duleep trophy failed to make into the good books of the selectors and the captain despite scoring 320 runs at an average of 80 in 4 innings.

On asking about retaining Dhawan in the team, Patil backed his decision by saying “We want him (Dhawan) to come good, not only him; we want all 15 to perform. We have faith in all 15,” was Patil’s response when asked why Dhawan was retained.

He further added “We are very happy with how K L Rahul has settled into the senior team. We have discussed not only Gautam but other seniors also. We have not forgotten the seniors, we discuss a lot of players… we have chosen only 15 players for this series but I am happy to say that we have a big pool of some 30 odd players,”

With age against his side and BCCI’s determinant policy to build up a team for future, Gautam’s chances for getting a national ticket are barely left.

Last time when the left hander got an opportunity for the national side he had a terrible outing in England where he failed to cross even the 20 runs mark in an innings. However it was not that he lost his touch or his time was over. The entire team felt helpless in the overcast conditions where the red cherry tested the batsman’s skill.

Even at the age of 34 his quench to score runs has not fulfilled yet. After a remodeled stance and a bold approach, he was undoubtedly the best India southpaw in the IPL 9 and his classy touch continued in the Duleep trophy too.

The decision to ignore the GG was not appraised by the Indian Cricket fans as they took twitter to express their grief. They also trolled Virat Kohli as one of the reason behind his exclusion as they both shared a bitter relation.

With Ranji Trophy next door and BCCI is planning to introduce the pink Kokabura balls in this tournament too, Gambhir’s experience can come in handy for him. If he can continue his good form and convert his scores into three figures, he can undoubtedly be one of the strong contenders for the remaining home Test series.

Daniel Crag,48, who has been playing the role of ‘The Spy’ since 2005 will be the first bond ever to be the part of the most number of Bond Series after Sean Connery and Sir Roger Moorey.

This may be considered as a rumour but if it is to be believed, Sony Pictures have offered a huge sum of money to back up Craig as the part of the upcoming Bond Series.

After a hefty offer of $150 million, Mr. Craig would reconsider his joke about “Slashing his wrist” and will not disappoint his fans who would love to see him charming the women in the next slice of the James Bond series.

August’5 2016, New Delhi: Transgender community in our society is considered to be eccentric in terms of their lifestyle. But, recently the Odisha Government has given this opportunity to transgender to portray their talent on the Independence Day and now they are going to be recruited in the jails as the warden too. This initiative marks the challenge to this taboo in our society.

According to a report by Indian Express, General Secretary of TG Surakshya Trust Pratap Sahoo quoted “For the first time in the country, the Odisha government has allowed the transgender to participate in the state level parade to be held at Mahatma Gandhi Marg on August 15.” And he further added that “A platoon comprising 30 transgenders have already started their rehearsal under the guidance of a trained teacher at Nayapally area.”

Giving a new ray to this context, they are going to be assigned as wardens in the jails. In a report by Business Standard, ADG (Prisons) Manoranjan Patnaik said Transgenders will be doing duty in jails as warders. They will have to succeed in the qualifying examination with other candidates. A letter to this effect has been sent to the Odisha Subordinate Staff Selection Commission to take necessary steps in this regard”.

Article 41 of the constitution in India gives “Right to work” for everyone. Such initiatives by the government showcase the efforts and steps which are taken to bring out the change in the society for uprising all the sections who are surviving.

A photograph released by police shows Deepak, his face covered with a towel, being led away.

New Delhi, Just a couple of days ago  when it was reported that Deepak Pahal whose dreams were crushed by his own deed after helping a gangster flee away from the police custody. His coach Mr. Anil Malik has revealed something which depicts the common struggle of a young athlete in India. However these acts cannot be encouraged at any cost.

Malik under whose guidance Pahal trained in boxing at the SAI Sonepat centre in 2006, revealed about his bad phase in life by not getting any platform or a job. He also spoke about his family and financial issues.

 “A passionate player should have opportunities to show case his skills and another thing is to live a satisfactory life with his family. But Pahal had a stressed life. His father is ill (mental issues) and neither he was getting any break (tournament) for boxing nor job. This may be a reason for his distraction and involvement in these kinds of activities” said Malik while speaking with pagescoop.

According to Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) Ravindra Singh Yadav, Pahal was barred from the Sports Authority of India (SAI) hostel in Sonepat after a case was filed in opposition to him for allegedly breaking the jaw of another boxer in a brawl.

Malik said “Under my guidance He was the most talented and energetic boy whose passion and focus was only boxing, because of which he got distracted from class 10. When I got transfer I had no contact with Deepak but meanwhile I got so many stories about him getting into bad company after his hostel period and when I came to know about this case I was really disappointed”.

He further added, “He was very introvert and shy with me and I always believed him regards boxing. I was shocked when I came to know about all this”.

 Five years later, the Rio Olympics is just a few days away, and Pahal is in police custody. His life will never become the same again. It’s a sorry spin for a career that had begun with so much promise has halted currently behind the bars.

DELHI GOVERNMENT TO MAKE MARRIAGE REGISTRATIONS QUICKER AND EASIER

Marriage Registrations

New Delhi. To provide better facilities to public, Delhi govt. introduced a new rule in which its revenue department has granted its sub-registrars the authority to complete the formalities of marriage registration. Due to which waiting time for couples who want to register their marriages will be reduced.

There is an attempt to enhance the facilities to the public and to avoid delay in registration of marriages. As until now, authorization to register marriages was given only to the office of sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) in whose jurisdiction either the bride or the groom resides. But now for marriages that put under the Special Marriage Act, 1954, SDMs, additional district magistrates and deputy commissioners are approved to act as ‘marriage officers’.

“There are times when SDMs are out in the field… This leads to delay in registration of marriages. As sub registrars have the power to register marriages, it will make the process faster. Sub-registrars… Have been trained to deal with cases as per the Hindu Marriage Act, the Special Marriage Act and the Delhi Compulsory Registration Of Marriage order 2014”. Said an official.

To make sure the new task doesn’t have an effect on the main duty of a sub-registrar i.e.; registration of properties- they will be indulge in duties related to marriage registrations only three days a week, between 3pm and 5pm.

A great step by Delhi government, which will definitely ease the work of SDM and facilitate public also it is going to be a great challenging task for sub-registrars.

 

Short des- There is an effort to improve the facilities to the public and to avoid hindrance in registration of marriages. A new rule by Delhi govt. which delegate the power to register marriages (the only power of SDMs) to the sub-registrars ( SDMs, DMs, DCs).
