Letters to the Editor of April 2007 about the successful women of India

first_imgWomen Achievers Of IndiaWomen’s EraThe woman of today is enterprising, ambitious, focused and excessively confident (“Living the Dream”, April 16). She is emerging as the true champion of the 21st century given the way she has evolved with the times and the pivotal role she is playing in our nation’s,Women Achievers Of IndiaWomen’s EraThe woman of today is enterprising, ambitious, focused and excessively confident (“Living the Dream”, April 16). She is emerging as the true champion of the 21st century given the way she has evolved with the times and the pivotal role she is playing in our nation’s economic boom.K. CHIDANAND KUMAR, Bangalore”Women, today, are out of their cages. After staying behind curtains for centuries, the woman has awakened not only to realise her potential, but to find an identity.”SANJAY KAPOOR, DelhiToday’s young Indian women, not only deserve to be seen, but to be heard as well.NAVNEET DHAWAN, DelhiOf all the women who appeared in the issue, only 15 per cent were clad in a sari. It makes an impression that if an Indian woman wants to look (and, perhaps, be) “Smart and Sassy”, she must discard the sari.ARUN VAIDYA, AhmedabadLiving in CosmosIt is the culture of metros like Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and even Pune that allows young single women to live as they want to (“Her Own Space”, April 16). But Delhi cuts down the freedom of women and does not let them be what they can be.PALLAVI CHELLURI, DelhiIt is only a small section of urban women who are richer and better educated today. For a majority of women in urban areas, life still revolves around slum clusters and saving every penny to eat two square meals a day.PRABHJOT KAUR, on e-mailBold and BeautifuladvertisementToday’s woman can be seen everywhere-schools, hospitals, news rooms (“Daring to be Different”, April 16). She is not only smart and sassy but also sweet and strong. But beyond your presentation, there may be hundreds of achievers in the country.A. JACOB SAHAYAM, ThiruvananthapuramEves GlorifiedYour Women’s Special has merely drawn attention to the ladies who have touched new heights in big cities either in their individual businesses or as successful leaders of big companies (“Will & Grace”, April 16). It has not been able to highlight the women in government service in smaller cities who have been a great source of inspiration and innovation.VIJAY CHAUDHRY, JodhpurThough it is heartening to see a large number of women going the unconventional way, there is still room for women entrepreneurs. Hopefully, the next Women’s Special will feature them.SNEHA PILLAI, ChennaiNo CooperationSAARC has not been doing well because it has been dogged by an undercurrent of hostilities amongst its member countries (“No Runs on the Board”, April 16). These countries need to overhaul their thought pattern so that the organisation can register some progress.V.K. TANGRI, DehradunSince its inception, SAARC has only indulged in big talk. It would be better if the execution of the tasks agreed upon was given more importance and challenges faced to complete these tasks were shared. Such a measure would help in overcoming the gap of trust between the member nations.RAJITH RAJAPPAN, ChennaiGame for MoneyThe justification that cricketers try to cash in on a short span of 10-13 yearsby endorsing a number of brands is a sham (“Ad Nauseam”, April 16). In this “short” span, they end up making money for at least two generations.H.R. BAPU SATYANARAYANA, MysoreTata Steel’s famous slogan “we also make steel” is much more suitable for the Men in Blue. The Indian cricket team should put this logo on their blue shirts “We also play cricket”.KAMALA BALAKRISHNAN, on e-mailWhy is cricket the only sport in India? It is our fault that no other sport in the country enjoys as much adulation as cricket does. Due to this, it has reached its zenith of commercialisation leading to fiascos at platforms of international significance.PAURUSH VERMA, on e-mailAdieu ChappellGreg Chappell’s tenure as a coach will be remembered for its controversies and intrigue (“The Man Behind the Mask”, April 16). A coach breathes enthusiasm and confidence into a team. Chappell, however, instilled fear and insecurity.S.K. AGGARWAL, AmritsarRather than removing Greg Chappell’s mask, we will do well to remove our cricketing heroes’ mask of invincibility. Our senior players are a spent force and have not been honest enough to accept the facts. Greg Chappell and Australian cricket is more forthright in that respect.BHUPESH NARAIN SINGH, on e-mailBell Tolls for BCCIThe flotation of Indian Cricket League is in a way privatisation of the current public sector of Indian cricket (“In a League of his Own”, April 16). If the BCCI has to survive, it has to change its style of functioning, detach itself from politics and have a cricketer as its president.SANJAY SHARMA, BangaloreadvertisementFoolhardy ExperimentBy terror and tyranny no communist country has been able to usher in a civilised state (“Stalinist Capitalism”, April 16). If the Marxists feel that by unleashing cadres and encouraging a civil war in Nandigram, West Bengal shall prosper, they are living in a fool’s paradise.ASOKE C. BANERJEE, KolkataLibrary of LiberalismThe members of Mumbai’s Awami Idara are doing excellent service through this library (“Booking Urdu Lovers”, April 2). It is indeed a matter of pride to know that the Idara is trying to spread knowledge and remove religious intolerance.MUMTAZ Z. SAYYED, PuneP ChidambaramPolitical SpeedbreakerFinance Minister P. Chidambaram’s speech was an eye opener (“Is Politics Overtaking the New Economy?”, April 9). It is indeed a miracle that something gets done in the country considering the Government’s obsession with caste and religion. Manmohan Singh must support his reformist team in the Finance Ministry.SHISHIR JAIPURIA, MumbaiIt’s a shame that the people’s representatives have not been able to fulfil their duties. Chidambaram’s assertion that the Parliament makes few laws these days makes one wince with pain. This is not what Mahatma Gandhi had fought for. This is not the India that Nehru had dreamt of.SUMIT GOYAL, Delhilast_img read more

Ind vs NZ 1st Test Live Blog; Live cricket scores and commentary

first_imgWelcome to India Today Online’s coverage of the first cricket Test match between India and New Zealand from the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal, Hyderabad. Score | PhotosIndia vs New Zealand Day 32:58 pm |  Play has been called off. So rain has the final say in a day dominated by India, thanks to R Ashwin’s impressive six-wicket haul in the first innings. Still 2 more days to go, so plenty of time for India to bowl New Zealand out (and then bat again if necessary). All of that though, only if weather permits. Following on, New Zealand are 41/1 in the second innings.  1st innings: India 348 (Pujara 159), NZ (Franklin 43 n.o. ; Ashwin 6/31, Ojha 3/44)2:20 PM: More bad news. It is pouring at the moment. Chances of further play look bleak.2:05 pm | Pictures coming in show that more covers are coming on. It is still very dark. There is only a drizzle right now but looks like only a matter of time before it starts pelting down. The light too was a concern even after the floodlights were turned on. 1:53 pm | Bad light stops play! It is extremely dark as well. The flood lights are on. The umpires are having a chat. Looks like they’re walking off now. Bad light? Or are they concerned about the weather? The covers are coming on now. Play has been stopped! New Zealand are 41/1 at the stage with opener Brendon McCullum batting on  16 and Kane Williamson on 3.Kane Williamson, right handed bat, comes to the crease1:35 pm | 14.3 overs: WICKET! Ojha takes his first one of the innings. This wicket has been a spinners paradise. Ojha to Guptill, out Lbw!! Lucky Ojha this time! Not sure Gould has got it right this time, but Guptill finds himself walking back eventually. Error in judgement has cost him here – this was very full and pitched on off, Guptill offered no shot and shouldered arms, the ball hit him in front of off stump but might have turned away. Guptill lbw b Ojha 16(38) [4s-3] (NZ 26/1 in 14.3 overs)1:25 pm | 12.6 overs: DROPPED! Oops Virat spilled it. Ojha to Guptill, no run, catch dropped by Kohli at 2nd slip. Tough chance, but one would expect someone like Kohli to take those. Good bowling by Ojha – fires it in and gets it to turn off the track, Guptill pokes and gets a thick edge which goes quickly to 2nd slip, Kohli goes with his left hand and the ball pops out. NZ are 22/0 at the stage with Guptill (15) and McCullum (5) in the middle.advertisement12:44 pm | 0.6 overs: Ojha to Brendon McCullum, no run, tight line and length on the off, McCullum gets forward and defends it.Guptill and Brendon McCullum are at the crease. Guptill is on strike. Ojha will open the attack 12:40 pm | SECOND SESSIONLUNCH UPDATE: India enforce follow onSESSION SUMMARY: Just a 90 minute session but India have managed to bowl out New Zealand. Umesh Yadav started the day by dismissing van Wyk and the spinners took over after that. Ashwin came in to bowl late in the session but wrapped up the tail very quickly to end with a 6 wicket haul. Franklin looked solid at the other end, but he got absolutely no support from his teammates. That will be lunch on day 3. New Zealand will have to bat again after 40 minutes, so join us at 12:40.New Zealand 1st innings: 159 all out (James Franklin 43 n.o. ; R Ashwin 6/31, Pragyan Ojha 3/44)12:00 pm | 61.3 overs: WICKET! Superb! Ashwin took six wickets in the innings and NZ are all out for 159 – the same total that Cheteshwar Pujara scored. Ashwin to Chris Martin, out Bowled!! Hah, make that 34 ducks. Extreme consistency from Chris Martin, almost unimaginable. Perfect flight, pitches on off and turns back in, Martin offered a defensive stroke but the ball founds its way through to the stumps. Ashwin ends with 6 wickets to his name, and Franklin watches helplessly from the other end. Chris Martin b Ashwin 0(1) (NZ 159/10 in 61.3 overs)Chris Martin, right handed bat, comes to the crease11:56 am | 61.2 overs: WICKET! A fiver for Ashwin! Ashwin to Boult, out Caught by Gambhir!! 5 wickets for Ashwin. His 3rd 5 wicket haul in Test cricket. Once again flights it up, Boult pushes at it and gets a thick inside edge off his pads to short leg. Ashwin has a huge smile on his face as he celebrates with his team-mates. Only a wicket away from bowling out New Zealand now… Boult c Gambhir b Ashwin 4(15) [4s-1] (159/9 in 61.2 overs)Trent Boult, right handed bat, comes to the creaseadvertisement11:38 am | 57.3 overs: WICKET! And Ashwin gets his fourth wicket. Ashwin to Jeetan Patel, out Caught&Bowled!! Very good catch that by Ashwin. Tough to take those off your own bowling but he did well. Nicely tossed up delivery, Jeetan Patel looks to drive but the bat turns in his hands, it flew back low to Ash who dived forward and got his huge hands under the ball. Jeetan Patel c and b Ashwin 10(21) [4s-1] (NZ 153/8 in 57.3 overs)Jeetan Patel, right handed bat, comes to the crease11:15 am | 51.4 overs: WICKET! And Ojha gets his third wicket…he matches up with Ashwin…it’s neck and neck for them. Ojha to Doug Bracewell, out Stumped!! Lovely bowling. Really good bowling. Bracewell once again used his feet and came down the ground, Ojha saw him coming, gave it flight and slowed it up in the air, Bracewell threw his bat at it but the ball turned away past his edge. Easiest of stumpings for Dhoni who takes out all the 3 stumps. Franklin is waging a lone battle at the other end… Doug Bracewell st Dhoni b Ojha 17(25) [4s-2] (NZ 141/7 in 51.4 overs)Doug Bracewell, right handed bat, comes to the crease10:38 pm | 43.4 overs: WICKET! And Umesh gets a quick one. Umesh Yadav to van Wyk, out Lbw!! That’s the first wicket of the day, and the first wicket for an Indian seamer. Was it a good decision though? We’ll wait for a few replays. Yadav banged it in short, van Wyk looked to pull but the ball skidded on and hit him on the back thigh. Height was probably a factor, but it doesn’t matter now. NZ are 6 down. van Wyk lbw b Umesh Yadav 0(14) (NZ 111/6 in 43.4 overs)10:30 am | Finally, we’re ready for a start. Pace to start proceedings..9:50 am | The groundstaff have done a great job. We’re starting at 10:30. It’s drying well and it’s looking good for a start at 10:30. The forecast is for more rain but we’ll see as it goes. Play can be extended till 5:30 PM if necessary.9:40 am | Tt has been raining continuously from the morning. Good news is that it has stopped now, but the outfield is still wet. The umpires are having a look at the wicket. Duncan Fletcher is there too, and surprisingly, he is seen having a big smile on his face. Don’t see that too often.. DAY 2 SCORE: 1st inns – NZ 106/5 (K Williamson 32; Ashwin 3/30, Ojha 2/35), Ind 438 (Pujara 159, Dhoni 73, Kohli 58; J Patel 4/100) DAY 2 SUMMARY: The spinners have put India firmly in the driver’s seat. There was something on the track to help and they made excellent use of it to never let the pressure off the Kiwis. Ojha struck in his very first over and Ashwin did one better by striking with his first ball. None of the New Zealand batsmen attempted to break the shackles either. Kane Williamson batted stubbornly before perishing late in he day. Franklin has been at the wicket for a long time and New Zealand need to score some quick runs to release some pressure. It is not going to be easy against the Indian spinners though.advertisementlast_img read more
