Bihar bandh hits normal life

first_imgThe Bihar bandh, called by the Left parties on Thursday to protest the sexual abuse of minor girls in Muzaffarpur shelter, hit normal life in most parts of the State.Rail and road traffic were disrupted by the bandh supporters demanding the resignation of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the State Social Welfare Department Minister Manju Verma. Opposition parties, including the RJD, the Congress and the Hindustani Awam Morcha, had supported the call for the day-long bandh. However, none of their senior leaders were seen on the road with the protesting Left party leaders.The ruling NDA, however, called the bandh a complete flop. State Agriculture Minister and senior BJP leader Prem Kumar said it was called only to harass the people. “The Muzaffarpur shelter home case has already been handed over to the CBI… so there was no point in calling the bandh.”Schools closedIn Patna, schools and business establishments remained closed. There was a scuffle between bandh supporters and police at J.P. Golumber (roundabout) where the protesters, shouting slogans against the Nitish Kumar government, tried to march through the Dak Bungalow chouraha (throughfare), the City centre.Train and road traffic were disrupted at Patna, Jehanabad, Gaya, Bhojpur, Muzaffarpur, Siwan, Sheikhpura, Arwal, Nawada, Darbhanga and Madhubani districts. However, no untoward incidents were reported from anywhere. Bandh supporters blocked the railway track for hours at Jehanabad, Sheikhpura, Madhubani and Bhojpur, holding up several trains. Railway officials said the protesters climbed on to the engine of some trains, carrying flags and banners.In Muzaffarpur, Left party supporters and leaders staged a demonstration outside the residence of Brajesh Thakur, the main accused in the case. Thakur headed the NGO that ran the tainted shelter home. The protesters demanded a High-Court monitored CBI inquiry and the resignation of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and State Welfare Minister Manju Verma. Ms Verma’s husband was earlier accused of frequent visits to the Muzaffarpur shelter home. The Minister denied this and said it was a “political conspiracy against her family, which belonged to a backward community.”last_img read more

Narendrabhai as Stylebhai

first_imgJapanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is set to receive his Indian counterpart in the city of Kyoto where the two leaders will later hold talks.If Barack Obama’s tan suit had twitter agog two days ago, generating its own hashtag, audacity of taupe, Narendra Modi’s bandhgala with a red silk pocket square while feeding fish with Japanese PM Shinzo Abe was no less.Modi’s march to 7 Race Course Road has been accompanied by a style evolution, where he has channeled both Jawaharlal Nehru and Rajiv Gandhi.Gujarat Nu Gaurav The half sleeve Modi kurta was designed to emphasise the 56 inch chest that could take on India. It made its makers Jade Blue very famous and very rich. It was also a less fussy contrast to Rahul Gandhi’s rolled-up sleeves that usually accmpanied a three-day old stubble.Narendra Modi and Rahul GandhiThe New Nehru Once Modi came to Delhi, he wore a long kurta with churidar and sleeveless jacket (very Nehruvian) in a new palette–peacock blue to baby pink–which signified a certain youthfulness. The play with colours was at its peak on Independence Day when he addressed India from the Red Fort with a tricolour turban that the wind obligingly waved around him.Narendra Modi and Pandit Jawaharlal NehruRajiv Gandhi Redux For his foreign visits, it is an update on the Rajiv Gandhi bandhgala. In Brazil for the BRICS Summit, Modi tried a powder blue hue. In Japan, it was all black with gleaming black luxe loafers. As Modi showed in his address to SRCC students at the beginning of his election campaign in 2013, he is not afraid of sporting a brand like Gucci (his scarf) on occasion, even if it screams dandy.advertisementRajiv Gandhi and Narendra Modilast_img read more

Once a sensation Walking Dead is another show

first_imgNEW YORK — At some point, a television sensation becomes just another show. The numbers illustrate how that’s become the case with AMC’s drama “The Walking Dead.”The zombies are taking a break at the halfway point of their ninth season, following an episode Sunday that was seen by 5.1 million people. The Nielsen company said that at a similar point last year, the midseason finale reached 7.9 million people.That’s a steep drop from the show’s high point, the seventh-season opener that reached 21 million people. AMC says a decline is natural for a show as it ages and that more people are watching on a time-delayed basis.The Associated Presslast_img read more

February PV sales dip 111 may miss fullfiscal forecast

first_imgNew Delhi: Domestic passenger vehicle (PV) sales dropped 1.11 per cent in February, making it the seventh decline in eight months, prompting auto industry body SIAM to suggest that it will miss even the scaled down forecast of 6 per cent for the ongoing fiscal.The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) said uncertainty ahead of elections coupled, weak market sentiment and unfavourable factors like high interest rates and insurance cost are continuing to affect sales. In its latest data, SIAM said domestic PV sales were at 2,72,284 units in February, down from 2,75,346 units in the same month previous year. Also Read – Maruti cuts production for 8th straight month in Sep”What we are seeing is that the market sentiment is subdued. Interest rates are still high and we have not been able to recover from the impact we have had earlier on the year,” SIAM Director General Vishnu Mathur told reporters here. The sales decline in February is the seventh instance in the last eight months, with the only positive growth since July last year coming in October, he added. In the April-February period this fiscal, PV sales have grown 3.27 per cent at 30,85,640 units as against 29,87,859 units in the year-ago period. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to CustomsWith people postponing discretionary spends like buying cars ahead of the elections, coupled with the current subdued sentiments, Mathur said it was unlikely that March sales will be high. “So we are more or less looking to end the year at around 3 per cent growth which we have witnessed so far,” he added. In the beginning of the fiscal, SIAM had projected 8-10 per cent growth for PV sales but it was revised to around 6 per cent after dip in sales from the third quarter onwards. In February, PV market leader Maruti Suzuki India posted 0.19 per cent increase at 1,39,912 units. Hyundai Motor India saw its PV sales decline by 3.13 per cent to 43,110 units. Mahindra & Mahindra, however, posted 16.86 per cent growth at 26,106 units. SIAM said domestic car sales were also down 4.33 per cent to 1,71, 372 units as compared to 1,79,122 units in February 2018. MSI’s car sales were down 3.25 per cent at 1,00,513 units. Hyundai Motor India also witnessed a decline of 6.43 per cent at 32,792 units. Honda Cars India, however, posted a jump of 46.53 per cent at 10,920 units in February this year. Total two-wheeler sales in February were down 4.22 per cent to 16,15,071 units compared to 16,86,180 units in the year-ago month, SIAM said. Motorcycle sales last month declined by 0.58 per cent to 10,47,486 units as against 10,53,596 units a year earlier. Market leader Hero MotoCorp posted 1.65 per cent increase in its bike sales in February at 5,44,073 units. Rival Bajaj Auto also posted a growth of 6.28 per cent at 1,86,523 units, while Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) witnessed a decline of 11.66 per cent at 1,45,260 units. Scooter sales in February stood at 4,92,584 units as against 5,60,653 units in the same month last year, down 12.14 per cent, SIAM said. Scooter market leader HMSI saw its sales dip by 19 per cent to 2,63,299 units during the month. Similarly, Chennai-based TVS Motor Co also witnessed 8.68 per cent drop in scooter sales at 83,543 units during the month. Hero MotoCorp posted 19.36 per cent decline at 56,543 units. Sales of commercial vehicles was also down 0.43 per cent to 87,436 units in February, SIAM said. Vehicle sales across categories registered a decline of 3.65 per cent to 20,34,768 units from 21,11,804 units in February 2018, it added. Meanwhile, Hyundai Motor India said on Friday that it would launch a subscription model initially in six cities across the country as part of its partnership with self-drive car-sharing firm Revv. Hyundai Subscription aims to provide an opportunity to the customers to experience Hyundai product portfolio, with hassle-free ownership, flexibility and limited commitment through subscription-based ownership model.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: More than 45,000 complainants with their grievances visited city police stations till March this year. The law enforcement agency after listening to their complaints registered over 6,000 FIRs in different cases.Police sources said that 34,140 complainants met Public Facilitation Officers whereas the concern of 14,194 people was heard by the Station House Officers (SHOs) or Additional SHOs of more than 180 police stations and units in Delhi Police. Sources further told this newspaper that 39,800 complaints relating to different natures including sexual assault, robbery, kidnapping, hurt, theft, quarrel, cheating, forgery and others came.

Incidents in Delhi are the focus of attention not only for the National Media but also to world media and even ordinary crimes and disorders tend to be sensationalized causing an unsettling effect on the minds of the people and their perception of the functioning of the police.last_img read more

Womens Tennis Is Finally Getting Young Again

This represents a sharp downturn from most of the previous decade. The average age of WTA winners floated between 25.8 and 26.1 between 2013 and 2016. But it also serves as a return to normalcy for women’s tennis, which had long been dominated by youth: The average age of WTA tour players in 1990 was 20.9, as 21-year-old Steffi Graf and 17-year-old Monica Seles finished the season ranked first and second. That average age would not rise above 23.5 for nearly two decades.The amount of young talent is enormous again. And impatient. Since Serena Williams won her last major at the Australian Open in 2017, only one other Slam winner has been at least 30 years old: Angelique Kerber, who won Wimbledon at age 30 last year. The winners of the other seven majors: Osaka, who won the 2018 U.S. Open at age 20 and the 2019 Australian at 21; Jelena Ostapenko, who won the 2017 French at 20; Garbiñe Muguruza, age 23 when she won the 2017 Wimbledon;1Muguruza also won the 2016 French Open. Sloane Stephens, who won the U.S. Open at 24; Simona Halep, who won the French Open last year at age 26; and Caroline Wozniacki, the 2018 Australia Open winner at age 27.Part of this may be cyclical. As clusters of young, talented players emerge, a generation of older players who exceeded the normal life expectancy of a tennis career is nearing its end — and we aren’t just talking about the Williams sisters, who are now 37 and 38 years old. Francesca Schiavone, 38, won the French Open in 2010 but retired last September. Roberta Vinci, 36, shocked the world at the 2015 U.S. Open when she beat Serena Williams, who was two wins away from a golden Slam, but Vinci retired in May 2018. Agnieszka Radwanska, 30, who lost the Wimbledon final in 2012, called it quits in November.Other players might not last that long, either. Samantha Stosur, 35, is in great shape and is an expert in doubles, but she struggles in singles. After next year’s Olympics, 30-year-old Dominika Cibulkova could decide to leave the game, too. Maria Sharapova, 32, has missed most of this season with injury. Victoria Azarenka, 29, is back after struggling since she had a child, but she might never be as powerful as she was in 2013.After she lost a doubles match this year in Paris, Lucie Safarova announced she had retired from tennis. Now age 32, Safarova had played in Slams since 2005. She never won a major singles title, but she came close at the 2015 French Open, when she lost to Serena Williams in three entertaining sets. Safarova also won five doubles majors with Bethanie Mattek-Sands, including two in Roland-Garros.“I think that it’s great that the competition is so strong,” Safarova said. “And we have, I think, at least 100 players now are amazing competitors. And you just have to be strong and play your 100 percent to be able to be here.”On Saturday, Barty and Vondroušová will likely be nervous, as is usually the case for players in a Grand Slam final. But their youth — and their passion — is what this age of tennis is all about. In the French Open final, 19-year-old Markéta Vondroušová, who dazzles with drop shots, will face off with Ashleigh Barty, 23, who is crafty and quick with a ton of energy. Amanda Anisimova, 17, reached the semis by hitting smooth strokes and bullets all day long. And world No. 1 Naomi Osaka lost early in Paris but claimed two Grand Slam titles by the age of 21.Women’s tennis is, at long last, getting young.The average age of players who have won at least one WTA title this year is 23.6 years old. That’s the lowest age since 2008 — and it will drop even further after Saturday. At the French Open this year, the final eight women in the event were no older than 28. read more

As far as my appearance in the game, I think it’s pretty spot on. They could have made me a little more jacked, that would have been more realistic. My muscles are a little smaller in the game than they are in real life so I’m a little upset about that but as far as from an entrance perspective and gameplay, wow, it’s just breathtaking.”On getting cheered by audiences:“I don’t think I’m a category. I can’t be put in a category just because I don’t feel like there’s good people and bad people in real life. I think there’s good people who do bad things and bad people who do good things. There’s no such thing as good and bad. There’s just this collage of humanity that society has portrayed. You dress like this when you’re in front of people but behind closed doors, who knows who you really are.”On the past year in the WWE:“It’s been tremendous but it’s not enough. It’s never enough. So it’s like the tenacity to move forward and jeep moving forward. And the things I have planned that are coming up are going to be alarming for the rest of the world, the free world.”Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipVin Diesel and John Cena share ‘intense’ sceneVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 1:05/Current Time 0:04Loaded: 100.00%0:05Remaining Time -1:01 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
