Mangalore Airport is Unsafe - 11/27/2011

MM-rd

New Delhi: In the 60th year of existence, Mangalore (international) Airport(MIA) is Unsafe, declared Vayalar Ravi in  Rajya Sabha Parliament in a written reply on Friday, November 25, which is a 'black  Moon' day with solar eclipse unseen in India at the end of Kartik(autumn)month. But the shocked MPs nodded, when there was a Consolation to go with it. 11 other airports also were so unsafe in India out of over 100 airports. The taint has to be removed locally, he said.

Mangalore-Airport

The Bajpe airport on a hill-top has been closed in June 2010, and the present modern airport is in level ground Kenjaru, with an insufficient runway of 850 meters which needs to be extended to at least 1,000 meters in length for a Boeing to happily land, and taxi away to a formal stop.

The old Bajpe airport which had a chilling Air India Boeing aircrash in May 2010, no longer serves even as a cargo airport, or for night airmail, which it did in earlier years.
The aircrash-nightmare and the unfinished' payment of adequate compensation “to  some 50 bereaved families who went to court and failed have brought bad name(badnami) to Bajpe(old)airport.

There is no way to change this ugly label, as Bajpe remains condemned, even for cargo movements.

The international tag may come before end of 2011, if Ravi’s to be believed but safety? Ask Vadudev Howsafe is MIA?


Last-ball draw: India miss epic win by one run - 11/27/2011

bv

Mumbai, 27 November 2011: For the second time in history, a Test match ended in a dramatic draw with the scores level, after India finished on 242 for 9 at the end of a thrilling fifth day’s play at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. India won the three-match series 2-0.

 

Ravichandran Ashwin suffered a last-ball heart attack as he was run out on the final delivery of the match. India needed two runs from the last ball to complete a series whitewash but were denied a win with some a slow reaction from Ashwin. With India on 240 for 8, Ashwin started off slowly and turned even slower to be found meters short of his crease, never looking close to completing the second.

 

 

The only other time in the history of Test cricket that a match ended in a draw with the scores level, was in 1996 in Bulawayo, when England fell short of beating Zimbabwe. Earlier, India were on course for a series whitewash against West Indies and needed 95 more runs in the final session to wrap up victory.

 

After being bowled out in quick time in the morning session, West Indies’ morale were lifted in the second session as offspinner Marlon Samuels and legspinner Devendra Bishoo shared three wickets to revive victory hopes.

 

India seemed to be crusing toward victory during an 82-run stand between Virender Sehwag (60) and Rahul Dravid (33) before the team lost three quick wickets to slip from 101 for 1 to 113 for 4. Sehwag made the most of three chances he got, smashing eight fours during his 65-ball knock. He finally fell when attempting a reverse-paddle sweep off Bishoo only to miscue it to Darren Sammy at short fine-leg. Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar (3) then fell in similar fashion, caught at midwicket off Samuels.

 

 

Earlier, spinners Pragyan Ojha and Ashwin forced forced a dramatic collapse as the West Indies lost eight wickets for 53 runs before lunch to be bowled out for 134. Left-arm spinner Ojha finished with 6 for 47 and offspinner Ashwin bagged 4 for 34, taking advantage of some irresponsible batting by West Indies, who went for their shots on a pitch affording turn.

 

The spin pair took four wickets each to revive a game that had seemed to be drifting toward a draw after West Indies scored 590 in its first innings and India replied with 482.

 

Kraigg Brathwaite and first-innings centurion Darren Bravo added 61 for the third wicket, the only notable partnership in the innings, but Braithwaite’s dismissal in the fifth over of the morning opened the floodgates.

 

Ojha took a return catch to get rid of other Bravo for 48. Samuels was out four deliveries later when he jumped out to the pitch of the ball and was stumped without scoring. Ashwin joined in the party by trapping left-hander Kieran Powell lbw for 11 and Carlton Baugh gave away his wicket when he went for a big drive against the spin and was bowled for one.

 

West Indies lost their last eight wickets for 43 runs as Bravo, Samuels, Carlton Baugh, Ravi Rampaul and Sammy all got out trying to play attacking shots against the Indian spinners.



India-China border talks cancelled over Dalai Lama row: Report - 11/27/2011

India-China border talks cancelled over Dalai Lama row: Report

 
NEW DELHI: The reported Chinese demand for cancellation of the Dalai Lama's speech at a Buddhist congregation here next week is believed to have led to the postponement of India-China border talks scheduled for Monday.
The Chinese side is said to have called off the 15th round of the talks between Special Representatives (SR) of both the sides after India refused to accept their demand that the congregation which was to be addressed by the Tibetan spiritual leader be called off.
The Dalai Lama was to address the valedictory function of the four-day Global Buddhist Congregation, co-organised by the Public Diplomacy division of the external affairs ministry, on Wednesday.
The Indian side is believed to have conveyed to China that the xongregation was of a religious nature and not a political event and it cannot cancel it.
There was no official word on the reasons for the cancellation of the SR talks from both side.
The Chinese embassy here also declined to comment.
Chinese Special Representative Dai Bingguo was to travel to Delhi for talks with his Indian counterpart Shivshankar Menon to follow up on their talks in the 14th round in Beijing in November last year.
The external affairs ministry issued a terse statement "We are looking forward to the 15th round of SRs talks in the near future and the two sides remain in touch to find convenient dates for the meeting."
Dai and Menon were expected to discuss putting in place a mechanism for border management mooted by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao during his visit to India last year. A decision to set up the mechanism was taken at a meeting Wen had with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at Sanya in April.

The cultural event started with beautiful and meaningful presentation of song with dance by SAKATH members, depicting the history and culture of Thottam.

Leslie Rego, a master compere from Manglaore, took charge of the musical event in style by making an entry from among the audience. His wit, humour, and exquisite command over language took the show to a new height, as his presence and histrionics added more spice to the show.

To a huge response from the audience, a Tulu song presented by Anitha Samason 'Yekka Saka' took people down the memory lanes.

The Goan stars, Ancieto and Lulu, too made lasting impression on the audience with their super hit solo songs. The young faces of musical evening, Vijay Vas and Laila, succeeded in winning over the hearts of the audience with their very first 'Mast Mast' song.

The show went ahead under an environment filled with rich music, enhanced with superb sound arrangement made by Denzil Fernandes. The specialty of the entire show was that the audience remained glued to their seats throughout the event, except during break. It gave ample evidence to the fact that everyone of them had admired and enjoyed each and every number rendered on the stage.

Songs like Lisboa, Bebdo, Ciriani Kombi, Ye Nari, Dublo Gresth, Nisha, Celli, Tulu song, ‘Pakkilu Mooji’ etc made the people to ask for repeat performances.

The musical entertainment programme was well-supported by Dubai's comedy artistes, Alphone Dsouza, Sunitha Menezes, Pius Karunalgade and Stany. Four small skits presented by these artistes were well-appreciated by the audience.

To add more glamour to the show, Ocean Kid's young dancers presented Konkani and Hindi numbers. The spectacular dance performances by Ocean Kids troupe was also an important part of entire entertainment package.

During the break, sponsors of the event were felicitated. Daijiworld and Radio spice were the media partners of the event.

He had made his debut into the world of movies through award-winning Konkani movie, 'Kazar', following it up later with a Kannada movie, 'Ellellu Neene, Nannallu Neene'. A memento was presented to him.

The show ended at around 10.15 pm. It was the collective opinion of audience that the popular numbers chosen and presented by the well-known musicians were truly entertaining and such songs kept the interests of audience alive throughout the show. The huge turnout for the show proved that the audience wholeheartedly supports any good and quality event.

Also, with his compering skills, Leslie Rego once again proved that he is the best compere available for such mega shows, especially the action packed entertainment extravaganzas.

Mystery shrouds death of young housewife - 11/26/2011

KA-RD

KARKALA: A young woman of Karkala origin has died under suspicious circumstances at her

husband’s house at Hubli on November 23 Wednesday. There is a growing suspicion that she

might have been murdered.

The deceased is Asma (28), daughter of Ummarabba of Jarkala in Kukkundur village. Asma

was given in marriage to Shajid of Hubli five years ago. It is learnt, of late there was a strained

relationship between the couple leading to frequent strifes. It is also said that Shajid used to

inflict physical and mental torture on his wife.

Her parental family which got information that Asma was seriously ill on November 23, rushed

to Hubli only to find her dead. Though her husband’s family is arguing that Asma has committed

suicide, their failure to lodge a police complaint has given room for doubts.

Asma’s parental family which has raised suspicion over the cause of the death particularly owing

to the injury marks on the body, has done a post mortem at the Ajjarkad Hospital at Udupi.

Even Arif Kallotte, State Executive Committee member of the BJP minorities wing, has

demanded a thorough probe into the cause of Asma’s death.
