Europe’s elite competition with five goals in Spurs’ games against Borussia Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia one more than Cristiano Ronaldo Kane who has also six strikes in the Premier League and has scored 13 times in his last nine matches for club and country has been the main focus of media attention before Tuesday’s blockbuster clash between Spurs and the European champions and was featured on the cover of Spanish newspaper Marca on Monday “He is a fundamental player for Tottenham he is very good in every aspect but the best thing about him is that he’s always got the goal on his mind” Zidane told a news conference on Monday “He’s a very complete player even though he does not look it but he always turns up when he needs to” Zidane ducked a question on whether he would like to sign Kane for Real Madrid who are short of strikers after selling Alvaro Morata to Chelsea “I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future” he said Tottenham’s Spanish striker Fernando Llorente meanwhile warned Real about the threat his teammate poses “We have great players who are capable of playing very good football and we have Harry Kane who at the moment is turning everything he touches into a goal” Llorente said in an interview with Marca “There isn’t a great deal of difference among the top teams in Europe and I’d count Tottenham among them” Real have flattered to deceive in La

refresh your skin this winter * Use a good cleansing oil: It is the foundation for good skincare base regardless of the season In winter when your skin is driest you should replace your usual cleansing product with a non-comedogenic cleaning oil as it won’t block pores After cleansing it leaves you with soft and smooth skin that isn’t greasy * Peel away flakiness with enzymes: If the surface of your skin is dry it’s a sign you need to get rid of old skin cells that prevent moisture from getting into your skin Scrubbing is the best solution for this Also opt for a professional salon service like a cleanup or a facial for best results * Night time care: You should invest in a night cream that does some heavy work while you sleep Use a protective cream if you will be outdoors for long periods * AHA and Vitamin-C kick: If your skin feels tired and shows a fallout from the cold treating it with Vitamin C will give it back its luster and remove signs of fatigue In the winter before the sun gets too strong opt for a facial with alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) * Moisturization is crucial: While the temperature may vary from city to city dry air is a common thread which leaves the skin feeling parched Use a thick cream enriched with ingredients such as Soya protein sunflower oil skin lipids and glycerin that gently moisturize rough and stretchy skin and maintain the skin hydration balance These nutrients act on dullness and leave the skin soft and supple * Don’t forget the sun: It’s essential to use a moisturizer that already contains a good sun protection factor

holds his court outside; a plastic table and three chairs fill space while the bright yellow flag of the ever-in-making ‘Greater Cooch Behar’ flutters in the wind It is this “independent state” the ‘Greater Cooch Behar’ that ‘Maharaja’ Ananta Rai claims to be the “king” of And the ‘king’ counts Prime Minister Narendra Modi as one of his allies Not one to regard politics the ‘Maharaja’ has put faith in the BJP this election season with hope that the cherished dream of attaining statehood will come true That would bring the ‘king’ out of the “exile” “I do not have land nor do I have the authority to rule I am a king because the people here made me the king I am a king in exile” Ananta Rai linked historically to the royal family of Cooch Behar said It is this royal history the region could never let go of Residents believe Cooch Behar’s inclusion into West Bengal was “illegal” and against the treaty signed between the Government of India and their then king Maharaja Jagaddipendra Narayan on August 28 1949 Share This Article Related Article In 1998 came the Greater Cooch Behar People’s Association (GCPA) — and the title of ‘Maharaja’ for Ananta Rai — with the sole aim of ensuring that the ‘Greater Cooch Behar’ area is recognised either as a separate ‘C’ category state or a Union Territory “Cooch Behar has been a part of a democracy only for a few years We have always been a monarchy We have tried and adapted to the Constitution and democracy but it is not in our blood” Rai says While the BJP has never publicly endorsed Cooch Behar’s demand for a statehood Rai is confident that the saffron party’s government at the Centre will “accept” it “Elections aren’t for us but we are supporting Modi and the BJP They are the only ones who have given us any support Our people attend BJP’s rallies and while I can’t ask anyone to vote for a particular party I have asked the Koch-Rajbanshis (the region’s indigenous population) to consider the BJP’s promise” he said An indication of the people’s support was seen in Siliguri on April 7 when thousands of GCPA supporters had turned up for Modi’s rally While Modi himself remains reticent on commenting on GCPA’s demand Home Minister Rajnath Singh promised while speaking in Tufanganj recently that the NDA government would “do whatever is possible” for the movement “I want you (the people of Cooch Behar) to believe that our government will do whatever is possible to ensure that your identity is preserved…I have told Maharaja Ananta Rai that the government has and will continue to stand with you” Singh had said As the roaring lion and the elephant of the Koch dynasty’s coat of arms stare back from the walls and doors of the palace Rai digs into his life and politics comes out with references from the past He speaks of Maharani Gina Narayan Cooch Behar’s blonde queen who landed in the Calcutta of 1960s with disconcerting immediacy Rai switches between past and present constitutional apathy political disregard and the ill-treatment of the Koch-Rajbanshis is summarized simply “Cooch Behar was never a part of India and now we have to bow our heads to the rules and regulations that aren’t ours” he says He refers to the letters between the GCPA and the Union government reports written by academics historical documents and sepia photographs before he concludes “In exchange we got nothing — no development no jobs We want our lost glory back” But even as he speaks of the many ways in which Kolkata and Delhi ignored the needs of the Koch-Rajbanshis — deemed a scheduled caste in West Bengal — he grudgingly admits that Bangsibadan Barman the first general secretary of the GCPA and currently the leader of a separate faction of the group — continues to hold influence on the community When Rai was meeting representatives of the central government Barman — still one with political ambitions — was organising a ‘Rail Roko’ agitation in February Formerly with the Students Federation of India (SFI) Barman is presently on the run according to the police But Rai believes otherwise “I think he has made an understanding with the Trinamool Congress He stays out of jail and works against us and the BJP” While Barman couldn’t be contacted a close aide said “The Rail Roko agitation was completely peaceful It was the police who unleashed atrocities on us Since then Dada (Barman) has been on the run But we will be coming back soon and stronger The Centre will never simply ‘give’ us our right They will use us like previous governments in the past” WATCH INDIAN EXPRESS VIDEOS HERE For all the

had bought a Maruti car in October for Rs 11 lakh The car however soon developed suspension problems He then approached the car dealer who told him that it was a small problem and he could do nothing about it A frustrated Bharti then put up a grievance on a consumer forum portal Thereafter he received a call The caller claimed that he was from the car company and asked Bharti to take his grievance off the portal and in return the amount he had paid for the car would be refunded Initially Bharti wanted a car replacement However eventually he gave his bank and other details like a ‘one-time password’ to get the money back Instead of getting Rs 11 lakh along with Rs 190 lakh for the “mental trauma he had to undergo” there was a debit of Rs 46000 from ‘The Mobile Store’ in Gurgaon It later turned out that the caller was not from the car company but a cyber fraudster who went through consumer forum portals to scan probable victims and get information about them so as to win their trust and thereby con them easily However consumer portals are not the only ‘source base’ for cyber criminals according to experts They also scan online job portals matrimonial websites and social networking profiles to look for people expecting a call from representatives of these sites “Why would they bother with cross-checking when they are expecting a call and think no one else knows about it In case of Bharti according to him the only three sides who should have had any interest in the matter was the company the consumer forum and him He had no clue about prying eyes looking at such

made an arrest from Bangalore The arrested had allegedly used online data to lure job seekers Additional Commissioner of Police KMM Prasanna said that the thumb rule in such cases should be not to transfer money “People get duped after fraudsters glean through their information on matrimonial websites and job portals and then call them One cannot stop putting up information online but has to be alert the moment a monetary transaction is mentioned” said Prasanna Cyber expert Vijay Mukhi said that earlier fraudsters would send millions of generalised messages telling people they had won a

Top News If Elena Vesnina was red faced after being on the receiving end of a 48-minute 6-2 6-0 semi-final mauling at the hands of Serena Williams — at least it wasn’t as bad as the 19-minute wipeout American Alice Marble inflicted in 1939 On that occasion three-times Roland Garros champion Hilde Krahwinkel Sperling probably felt she had hardly warmed up before she found herself walking off the court after suffering the quickest ever semi-final defeat at the All England Club Seventy-seven years later the ease with which Williams made it through to her ninth Wimbledon final once again raised the question of whether the women deserved equal prize-money “Yeah we deserve equal prize money Yeah absolutely” declared Williams with a withering look that clearly said ‘subject closed’ After years of campaigning by figure-heads such as Billie Jean King Wimbledon introduced equal prize-money in 2007 But every time there is a lopsided match in the latter stages of the women’s competition the subject comes up for discussion again Just like in 2009 when then world number one Dinara Safina had to defend her prize purse after capitulating in only 51 minutes against Serena’s older sister Venus in another one-sided semi Vesnina was also quizzed about the issue “We deserve what we have right now” said the Russian who pocketed $645000 for making it to the last four “We also had good quarter-final matches in the women’s side” she added although none of those four encounters spilled into a deciding set “It’s not about the score It’s just amazing that we have such a great champion like Serena on the women’s side “I don’t think it’s the right topic to speak about (today)” A day after Centre Court ticket holders were treated to more than seven hours of breathtaking shot-making with Roger Federer and Andy Murray needing five sets to subdue Marin Cilic and Jo-Wilfired Tsonga respectively those visiting on Thursday were filing out after only two hours of women’s on-court action With Thursday’s Centre Court tickets costing almost $190 each did the fans feel short-changed “I was initially disappointed Serena’s match was over so quickly but Vesnina had no chance as Serena was dominating so much” said Toby from Buckinghamshire “But in the end I didn’t feel let down as there is also some element of enjoying someone putting in such a supreme performance” It was a sentiment shared by Serena who eventually shared her thoughts on the topic “I would like to see people the public other athletes … just realise and respect women for who they are and what we are and what we do” said the 34-year-old American who will be chasing a 22nd grand slam title on Saturday “I’ve been working at this since I was three years old Actually maybe younger because I have a picture where I’m in a stroller… Venus is pushing me and we’re on the tennis court “Basically my whole life I’ve been doing this I haven’t had a life I don’t think I would deserve to be paid less because of my sex or anyone else for that matter in any job” Angelique Kerber who needed 72 minutes to overcome Venus 6-4 6-4 in the other semi was also adamant that the combined duration of Thursday’s matches
