Salman to Tie Knot

Bollywood’s most eligible bachelor Salman Khan is all set to tie the knot in October, this year.

According to the sources, bollywood’s spoilt boy Sallu has finally decided to give up his bachelor status and settle down. It is said that the actor has given in to the demands of his parents, who want their son to marry and start a family as soon as possible.

Salman who has been seeing British born Indian Actress Katrina Kaif for nearly three years now, seems to have found his soul mate in her. After having had a string of affairs with famous models and actresses which include Aishwarya Rai, and Sangeeta Bijlani, its Katrina who got the star thinking of the Final Commitment.

Though the actress who stood by his side during his short lived jail term in the Blackbug case has openly said that she has no plans for marriage in the near future at least for 5 years, sallu’s decision to settle down might cause her to have second thoughts on the subject.

It is said that Katrina is miffed with salman , as the latter is pestering the former for marrying and that is the reasons ,for the latest rift between Katrina and Salman.

To surprise all ,Katrina was seen dating and partying with Ranbir kapoor very recently ,which also hints that she is completely vexed up with sallu’s proposals to marry and is in a look out for another Boyfriend.

There is a buzz in the bollywood that Katrina is now a settled actress and so she does not need any kind of support from anyone.

However, Katrina apart from her regular shooting schedules is busy in grooming her sister who is also making her debut into bollywood in the coming June of this year.

So, if Katrina says no, as her career is said to be in its peak presently, then who will be the Bride for Sallu is the million dollar question.

After all, it was not easy to convince Sallu to settle down into dreary ways of Matrimony!

No differences between Priyanka and Kanaga

Priyanka chopra has denied that she has any king of personnel or professional differences with Kangana Ranaut who Co-Stars with her in Madhur bhandarkar’s forthcoming film titled Fashion.

Priyanka requested the media not to circulate these type of rumors, that she has some differences with Kangana or Kareena or even Lara Dutta . She also added that she respects Kangana as she’s an outsider who has been wholeheartedly embraced and adopted Mumbai. Besides Priyanka also cleared the air that she and Kangana have their own individual space in the film Fashion and so there is no scope for any kind of friction between them

Deepika Costlier than Aishwarya Rai

It may seem to be incredible, but the truth is that ‘One film Wonder’ Deepika Padukone is proving to be costlier than former Miss World Aishwarya Bachchan to the film producers. Before her entry into bollywood, Deepika was talked about more because of her string of Boyfriends, but today she is also in the news for demanding exorbitant rates for acting in films.

Soon after the resounding success of Shah Rukh –Deepika Starrer OM Shanti Om, a producer from south India Shanker ,who made the super hit Sivaji -The boss with Rajnikanth ,had approached the former model fro the female lead role in his forthcoming film ROBOT, but it is said that Deepika has charged such a high fees which left him stunned as well as silent.

Next, Shanker approached Aishwarya Bachchan for the role, but there is mo confirmation whether the actress has signed for the film, but shanker claims that Ash has given the nod and has signed the agreement. But when questioned ash the same, she replies that it is still under consideration.

Sources close to Aishwarya say that it is due to the tight movie schedule which is keeping her at bay, as her Jodha Akbar is releasing in the coming month and her next international project Pink Panther-2 will be starting soon. After that her next project Sarkar Raj will, star its schedule.

Now, what is worth mentioning is that perhaps the success of Om Shanti Om has gone into the head of Deepika, who has let go an opportunity to work in a big budget film opposite South super star Rajnikanth only for the sake of money. This move may prove to be costly for Deepika and she may not even get the opportunity to make amends. For bollywood does not offer time to make amends.

Shahrukh and Hrithik back together again after Khabi Kushi...

Taking a cue from the flops produced under his banner during 2007, Ace producer Aditya Chopra has now pulled out all stops and is reported to be rolling up his sleeves to direct his own film starring two Bollywood superstars Shahrukh and Hrithik in the lead roles. And Rani Mukerji and Preity zinta, both favorites of Adi are expected to be part of the project which will be shot in Greece, Australia, and Dubai.

Contrary to the genre of romantic films produced by Aditya’s banner, the new project will have more action and humor. According to the sources, both SRK and Hrithik have plenty of free dates of their calendar as do Rani and Preity for Adi.

Aditya is currently reading the final draft of the film and hopes to start Pre-Production work in March so that shooting can commence by June –July.

Last year, other than Chak De! India, all the other films from Aditya Chopra’s productions flopped at the box office. The string of flops include Ta Ra Rum Pum, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, laaga Chunari Mein daag and Aaja Nachle . Even the faces of the big stars could not save these films which include Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji, Madhuri dixit.

In the past, Aditya Directed two films DDLJ in 1995, and Mo0habatein in 2000 which were a run away hits. Now by directing his next movie with the two big stars he wants the magic to be repeated.

Let’s hope that his film gets into a good shape and is going to be successful after its release.

Watch Shriya with Vadivelu from Feb 1st in Indralogathil Na.Azhagappan

Shreya and Sexy siren has acted opposite Vadivelu in his coming movie Indralogathil Na Azhagappan.

According to him, the producer Manikkam Narryanan has approached the beauty to do a song opposite vadivelu . It is said that shreya readily agreed to it and also danced with vadivelu . When Vadivelu asked whether she was comfortable in doing the shooting shreya replied that she was a fan of him and would love to dance with him.

Vadivelu also knocked that some persons were against it in the kollywood but still the song was canned. He thanked Shreya at the press meet held in the director’s office and reveled these facts.

Shreya who acted opposite super star Rajnikanth with no proudness and ill feeling had readily agreed and has done the song . this shows how supportive she is to her co-stars and is the healthy sign of a top actress. .

KR Vijaya who was a top actress a few decades ago was also a beautiful actress who acted opposite to MGR and Shivaji Ganeshan. This star not only acted opposite to the top stars of Kollywood but was also known to act opposite to comedian like Nagesh.

This proves that the healthy acting environment has not restricted to that era but also has perpetuated to the present generation.

3. Too much eating.

4. Skipping breakfast.

5. Consuming too much medication.

6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.

8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.
Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

3. Smoking

It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption

Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution

The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation

Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping

Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness

Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts

Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

Should Dhoni be the next Indian Test Captain

Should the captain of the T-20 Champions, Indian ODI team (M.S.DHONI) be made as the next Indian test team captain. The selectors say that Dhoni is made as the vice-captain just to groom him for the test captaincy. Does he have the eligibility to make it to that big seat. Some things about Dhoni:

*Dhoni is inconsistent with the bat in the test matches in the foreign soils (Australia, South Africa, West Indies).

*The pitches in the above 3 countries will reveal the quality of a good batsmen.

When a batsmen is not able to perform to a good level in the foreign soils, how could he, as a player would contribute to the teams victory. If so how could he be considered and groomed for the next test captaincy. Is this right choice the Indian Selectors have taken. Just considering him for the Test captaincy based on his T-20 win and ODI performances will never make good for anything. Test cricket is all about skill, temperament and it is also a different ball game. Test cricket is the one which shows the real test of character and temperament. When someone who has not yet considered to be good in the cricketing skills, how can the selectors choose him to be groomed for the test captaincy. Where does the Indian Cricket future goes to?

Will India rely on the big Three once more if they fail in ODI's

The Indian Selectors now has an intention of having an young side for the shorter format of the game. This is the idea behind dropping Dada and Dravid out of the ODI squad. Will the selectors follow the same stratergy from now for the ODI's by not backing the senior cricketers and relying on these young foots or would they again fall on the feets of the seniors (alone playing well in OZ) for the rescue of the team when these young foots do not do well. The same incident happened in the near past.

1.Calling Dada (who was once considered not to make it to the Indian squad again) back to the squad irrespective of his performance in domestic circuit, when Indian team is not doing well in South Africa.

2.Calling back Sehwag into the test squad for the opening slot although his domestic circuit was not upto the mark.

Will the BCCI take note on this inconsistency with the selectors application towards the Team selection and will BCCI give certain guidelines for this too other than what they have framed already. Will this stop or will follow to destruct the big foundation of this Indian team.

Lorry entered Karnataka's Territory

The Government of Karnataka had imposed restriction on the Lorry traffic coming to their state.

Billa's Help to Kaalai

Ultimate Star Ajith who is called as Thala is known for his humbleness and kindness with others but not shown to the world. Here is one example of this gentleman's character. Kaalai which was released on Jan 14th for pongal happened only due to this Star Ajith. The producer of Kaalai (NIC Arts) who is known for the most number of films produced for Ajith was supposed to pay a huge amount of money to Ajith for his previous films without which Kaalai would not have released this pongal. It was Ajith's good character that allowed the release of this film. Reportedly Ajith has given the NIC Arts producer (Chakravarthy) a written letter by himself that there is no need to pay those remaining amount immediately and let them go on with the release of their new film Kaalai. This shows how good is Ajiths Character. Not to forget that Ajith is one of the few stars in the film industry who take cares of the producers money and at the same time satisfies his fans and be humble to his co-technicians.

Ishant Bunny is now Pointing

Irrespective of what has gone in this series and what lies ahead, Ishant Sharma's mesmeric spell to Ricky Ponting will remain one of the highlights of the series, and will be remembered for years to come. Cricket lovers still talk about the working-over Andrew Flintoff gave Ponting at Edgbaston but that lasted only one over. Here at the WACA, the torment continued for an hour. Harbhajan Singh has had his number for some time now but rarely has Ponting been shown up as so vulnerable for such a long period of time since he established himself as Australia's best batsman. That Ishant is 19 and playing his fourth Test only added to the drama and romance.

Ishant had a close lbw against Ponting turned down last evening and, given the ball in the fifth over of the innings, he made it talk. In his first over, an edge from Michael Hussey fell just short of second slip, and in the next over, which was nearly as sensational as Flintoff's, he could have had Ponting twice. One ball jagged in and had Ponting fending; another, that perfect ball which is every right-arm bowler's dream, came in with arm and left Ponting as he shaped to defend, missing the edge by a whisker. And then one came in to trap Ponting in front; it was a decision the umpire wouldn't have been roasted for had he given it to the bowler, but only a doubt about the height will have saved Ponting.

Many would have been excused for thinking that the moment had passed, for an exceptional over such as that would be hard to reproduce, certainly by a bowler of his experience. But Ishant charged on, hurrying Ponting, cutting him in half with a ball that rose and cut off the seam and got him to mistime repeatedly. With every over, Ponting seemed to have weathered the storm for undoubtedly the young man couldn't carry on for ever. Indeed, RP Singh was seen approaching the bowling end after Ishant had bowled seven overs, but a last-minute change of mind - prompted by Virender Sehwag, his Delhi captain - kept Ishant in the fray and the reward came off the very next ball.

It was almost the same ball that got Ponting in the first innings. It pitched around the off stump and rose and left Ponting, who could only edge it to Rahul Dravid at first slip. It was one of those moments where you just had to suspend your national loyalties and rejoice in the triumph of a spirited and skilful youngster over one of the titans of his age. Justice would have got a bad name had he been denied.

Ishant made it to Australia only because of injuries to Sreesanth and Munaf Patel, and played in Sydney because Zaheer Khan went home. But in his short international career so far, he has got better by every Test. Against Pakistan in Bangalore, he shook off a couple of indifferent early spells to claim five wickets in the first innings, and in Sydney, he bowled far better than his returns - no wicket for 146 - suggested. Certainly, he had Andrew Symonds caught behind, only to be denied by Steve Bucknor who failed to hear a thumping edge.

Ishant's ability to get the ball to rise and bowl long spells - last year he bowled 15 successive overs in searing heat in Vijayawada against Andhra Pradesh to earn Delhi a draw they desperately needed - was well known. But in this Test, he showed another facet: getting the ball to hold its line, and even move it a shade away. From the angle he comes in and with the bounce he can generate, that's a deadly ball when he can get the line right. It's no coincidence that all his three wickets in this Test came with that ball.

When they look up the scorecard years later, Ishant Sharma will be found to have only one entry in the wickets column in the second innings. But scorecards don't often tell the story. It was a day when Ishant Sharma shook up Ricky Ponting and set up a famous win.

Cotton Ear Buds

Please do not show sympathy to people selling buds on roadside or at signals.

Just wanted to warn you guys not to buy those packs of ear

buds you get at the roadside. It's made from cotton that has already

been used in hospitals.

They take all the dirty, blood and pus filled cotton, wash it,

bleach it and use it to make ear buds. So, unless you want to become

the first person in the world to get Herpes Zoster Oticus (a viral

infection of the inner, middle, and external ear) of the ear and

Starring : Vidya Balan, Ajay Devgan, Kareena Kapoor, Pankaj Kapur

Ashfaque (Ajay Devgan) is a small town boy aspiring to be a film star in the Hindi film industry. He joins a street theatre group run by a reformed dacoit Sidhu (Pankaj Kapur) who uses street theatre as a medium to bring about an awakening in the masses. Ashfaque struggles to give a creative vent to the actor in him in order to realize his dreams.

Ashfaque's determined struggle pays off and he gets a break in films. He gets a new screen name - Sameer Khan. With the passage of time, the roles start becoming better and he moves up the success ladder in a very short time. Soon, he becomes Sameer Khan the superstar - one who can enact any role with finesse, get under the skin of any and every character with ease and walk away with audience applause.

Sadly, amidst all adulation and applause, he slowly loses his own identity. He forgets his real self and imbibes all characteristics of the various roles essayed by him on screen. Corruption takes over his entire system, alienating him from all loved ones, including his wife Sneha (Vidya Balan).

A shocking incident at a party changes everything, rocking Sameer Khan's lifestyle. He gets caught between his human self on one side and his corrupted superstar image on the other.

Whether the conflict within him gives way to good sense and whether he is able to discard his corrupted image and emerge as a true life hero, becomes an integral part of this true life cinema.

What Happens To Your Body Within An Hour Of Drinking A Coke

Don’t drink cola if you want to be healthy. Consuming soft drinks is bad for so many reasons that science cannot even state all the consequences. But one thing we know for sure is that drinking Coke, as a representative of soft drinks, wreaks havoc on the human organism. What happens? Writer Wade Meredith has shown the quick progression of Coke’s assault.

The main problem is sugar. It’s an evil that the processed food industry and sugar growers don’t want people to know about. Even dietitians, financially supported by sugar growers and sugary product manufacturers, are loathe to tell us the truth.

When somebody drinks a Coke watch what happens…

In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don’t immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.

20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment)

40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.
45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

After 60 Minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.

>60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down you’ll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.

So there you have it, an avalanche of destruction in a single can. Imagine drinking this day after day, week after week. Stick to water, real juice from fresh squeezed fruit, and tea without sweetener

Bheemaa Releasing on 15th Pongal

Vikram-Trisha starrer Bheemaa is coming out for this Pongal. Though it was already announced as a sure starter for Pongal, there were still some doubts in the air about the release, as the list of theatres and the exact date were not mentioned in the ads announcing the arrival of Bheemaa. Now the air is cleared.
Bheemaa is all set to enthrall you with a multi dimensional entertainment mixed with action, romance, and emotion.

Jackie for Dasavatharam Audio Release

Dashaavtaram is getting bigger day by day. Three hundred technicians at two different places are working, day in and day out, round the clock, on the post-production of the movie. In spite of this, Dashaavtaram will hit screens only for Tamil New Year. The audio release for the movie is being planned for February 2008, and all the big-wigs in Indian cinema are sure to be there.Ravichandran, who also holds the rights to release Jackie Chan movies in India, has invited Jackie to be release the music of Dashaavtaram at the grand function planned in February 2008. He showed Jackie clippings from Kamal’s movie, clippings from the Dashaavtaram songs and also informed him that Kamal has been acting in movies since the age of 5. Jackie Chan, already impressed with what he saw, was just amazed to know that Kamal Haasan, 54, has been acting since age 5. Jackie Chan, who was particularly astounded with Kamal’s portrayal of a 92-year-old woman in Dashaavtaram has agreed to participate in the audio launch.

Word is that Jackie Chan will release the audio; Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan will receive the first copies. Leading South Indian actors Mammootty, Mohan Lal, Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna and Vishnu Vardhan will also be special guests at the event

The Beauty Queen Deepika Padukone and Style Master SuperStar Rajini in Robot

Shankar’s dream has become a reality. His dream project is finally taking shape and the actor if the sources are correct is none other than the Superstar himself. Shankar could not have imagined a better start for his magnum opus.

The grapevine is abuzz now that Superstar Rajini is paired with none other than Deepika Padukone for Robot. Deepika made waves in bollywood with her debut movie Om Shanthi Om.

The movie Robot will be produced on a 100 crore budget by Ayngaran International and Eros Multimedia. The sucess team of Shivaji which includes Shankar, Rajini and A.R. Rahman are all set to repeat their magic again in Robot. The rest of the crew needs to be still decided. No official announcement has been made yet. The announcement is expected to be during the silver jubilee celebrations of Shivaji the boss movie. This is going to be a never seen before Sci-Fi thriller for the Tamil audience.

It can be recalled that earlier Sharukh Khan and Shankar were supposed to team up for Robot and later dropped out due to “creative differences”. Many big names like Ajith Kumar and Amir Khan have also been rumoured to be associated with this movie Robot

Rajini’s Sultan for Pongal

An exciting news for the fans of superstar Rajinikanth. They can see Rajini in action in all screens that show the Pongal release movies.

The trailer of ‘Sultan the Warrior’, an animated movie being made by Rajini’s daughter Soundarya, produced by Adlabs in association with Ocher Studios, will be screened from Pongal. The official sources reveal that the trailer would runs for 1 minute and 43 seconds.

The trailer is sure to excite the audiences, as it is the first ever experiment to show the action hero with incredible charisma in an animated form. The film with the music of A R Rahman is expected to be released by the end of 2008.

Robo - Rajni will Rock in a Couple of Years

There has been a buzz for the past couple of weeks about Superstar Rajini acting in Shankar’s Robot. This has become official now with Ayngaran International CEO Rohan Manickavasagar confirming the news. Says Rohan Manickavasagar “Ayngaran and Eros Multimedia will be jointly producing Robot featuring Rajinikanth and directed by Shankar. The formal agreements will be signed soon,”.

As far as ‘Robot’ is concerned, it is like a roller coaster ride for the movie, as Shankar has been contemplating with many names for his dream project. First it was said that Kamal Haasan would act in it. Then Vikram’s name surfaced. Post ‘Sivaji’, we heard that Hrithik Roshan would be the dream hero. Then came the name of Aamir Khan. Finally Shankar made an official announcement that it would be Shahrukh Khan, who would don the role in his most intimate project.

If Shivaji was shot on a 80 Crore budget, the movie Robot will be produced on a 100 crore budget by Ayngaran International and Eros Multimedia. The sucess team of Shivaji which includes Shankar, Rajini and A.R. Rahman are all set to repeat their magic again in Robot. The rest of the crew needs to be still decided. This is going to be a never seen before Sci-Fi thriller for the Tamil audience.

London-based Ayngaran International, in which Kishore Lulla-owned Eros International picked up a controlling stake last July, is to produce the film. Robot movie has been associated with many major super stars like Sharukh Khan who opted out of the movie due to differences with Shankar. Also ultimate star Ajith Kumar and Amir Khan were also associated with Robot. It is said that Super star will first star in a short-duration project produced by Balachander and directed by P. Vasu before he stars shooting for Robot.

‘Robot’ is all set to become grand and entertaining film ever made in Indian cinema. The movie will be simultaneously produced in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu and other languages. ‘Robot’ will have the state-of-the-art technology.

Sultan - The Warrior

After successfully watching Sivaji on First day in First show, I was bit amazed at the beginning when I saw the below trailer running before the screen. Well actually Sultan the warrior is India’s first expensive animated movie that is being done on a personality not a simple personality but South India’s great icon Mr. Rajnikanth. This animated movie is produced by his daughter Soundarya Rajnikanth who is the managing director of Ocher Studios. For the first time they are joining hands with AdLabs.

Before talking about the film, lets sneak peek the trailor so that you will understand a bit

Unlike animation movies like Hanuman etc this movie is powered by 3D like sherk, antz etc. India is vastly developing and competing in all sectors especially film industry compete Hollywood soon. Sultan the warrior features Rajinikanth as a myth hero who powers adventures with his charisma and style that we all melt for on seeing. This is not only a full length animation movie but also a sneaked information shows that they are going to release it as pc game. This animated movie is expected to release next year that is on 2008.

Opps i forgot about the music, yep as you guessed the music is composed by our Legend A.R Rahman.

"leave britney alone!"

I don't usually care much about celebrity news- still don't, really. I don't write about it, either. I was looking over my google homepage news today though, and I couldn't help myself. A few months ago I watched that over-the-top YouTube video with the teenager's melodramatic soliloquy about leaving Britney Spears alone- it was funny and a little frightening, but I have to agree. The media needs to quit invading her privacy- she has the same kind of problems thousands of people in the U.S. have, only to be exacerbated by all the media attention clocking her every move. There are a lot more important things going on in the world, people! So, I say it, too. Leave Britney alone! This all is getting very old and very lame.

In other thoughts, after some observation of ..others.. here's my personal goal for the upcoming year (I resist calling it a new year's resolution.... but okay, fine, it is): When going above and beyond is unnecessary and I'm overwhelmed by too much to do, I will resist being a perfectionist and just cut some things out. I'm not God, I'm not some kind of Superman, I'm just me. Overdoing it to prove to who(??) that I'm enough will only make me bitter and unhappy and tired. That is not the kind of life we're called to live.

Barriers break when money talks

The news of a corporate bigwig like Bharti getting involved with Indian football is pure music to the ears of people associated with the game. It’s a more than welcome initiative on the part of AIFF as well as the company. But the road ahead is a tricky one and needs to be treaded extremely carefully.

As an official of AIFF commented, “It sounds all good on paper but unless it yields something, it would just be another flash in the pan.”

Efforts to popularise football have moved from first to third gear, for quite some time now. Money is slowly and steadily pouring in and the results are showing. While Bharti is starting from the grassroots level, which is extremely essential, a lot of others have just tagged along and not given too much to the game. The academy being planned by Bharti is a step in the right direction but it will not work if other things required aren’t put in place. “What would the academy yield if there aren’t professional coaches?” questions a coach of a football club.

AIFF claims that it would bring in foreign coaches and train young kids the right way, or rather the European way, which would have facilities including multiple grounds, basic training, coaching and medical facilities.

Nirvan Shah, who runs his own football academy, PIFA, in Mumbai and has tie-up with European club academies feels that it is a great move but needs a lot of hard work other than “just giving the money”. “It requires a lot of effort and every minute detail has to be paid attention to.” Shah, though, feels that Indian football seems to be headed in the right direction.

AIFF president Priyaranjan Dasmunsi, at the press conference, said that the involvement of someone like Bharti would just be the kickstart for the development of the game. And he rightly said, “It is a small ray of light in our house.” Whether that ray lights up the house or not remains to be seen, for now, Indian football can look forward to a better and hopefully a brighter future.

BCCI to lodge complaint against umpiring

Incensed by the horrendous umpiring decisions in the second cricket Test against Australia, the Cricket Board today decided to lodge an official complaint with the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The Indian team management had initially decided not to lodge a formal protest after the umpiring blunders on the opening day but the BCCI President Sharad Pawar has now directed its officials to go ahead with an official complaint.

"BCCI President Sharad Pawar has directed officials to lodge a official complain against the umpiring in the Sydney Test. The letter to the ICC will be sent today," BCCI vice president Rajiv Shukla told PTI.

"The quality of umpiring has been so horrible that it is unacceptable. We do not consider it to be neutral," Shukla said.

The two umpires - Steve Bucknor of West Indies and Mark Benson of England - have given a number of atrocious decisions, most of which have gone against the Indians.

"It is quite evident on television that the umpiring has been poor. Even Sunil Gavaskar who is a member of the ICC's technical committee has expressed his outrage," Shukla said.

"Keeping all this in mind, the BCCI has decided to go ahead and file a complaint," he added.

Bharti to pump in over Rs100cr for football

Bharti Enterprises today joined hands with All India Football Federation (AIFF) to help the country attain global standard in the sport.

The company has signed an MoU with AIFF under the terms of which, it will pump in Rs 100 crore towards a comprehensive National Football Development Programme and for globalisation of Indian football with a target to take India to the World Cup.

As a first step, the telecom company will start a world class football academy named 'Bharti-AIFF Academy' which will be set up either in Haryana or Goa.

Bharti chief Sunil Mittal said he wanted a "football revolution" in the country and was ready to invest "any amount of money" necessary for providing a world class academy.

"Bharti has signed an MoU with the AIFF with an aim to make this country a football nation and next ten years must be a target for India to be at the world cup. This project has the capacity to transform the nation and all the investment would be made by Bharti Foundation," Mittal said today.

"We have become too obsessed with cricket and the time has now come for us to develop football in the country. Nothing is more pulsating than the 90-minute entertainment on a football field," he said.

"I am starting with a few hundred crore, but I assure you I am ready to invest any amount of money for whatever it takes for the academy and a few other initiatives.

"The academy will train young talent in the 8 to 18 year age group and I hope it will turn into a supply line for the national team down the years," he said.

Mittal said it was a philanthropic initiative by the company and there was no commercial angle to it. However, he later said the investment will give Bharti commercial mileage when the game succeeds.

Calling the Bharti initiative as the beginning of an era, AIFF president Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi said Bharti's involvement in football would not be confined to building the academy alone though he said a kick start is necessary to take care of the business viability aspect.

"AIFF and Bharti will work together for the development of Indian football. There is a small ray of light in our house," Dasmunsi said.

Work on the academy will start by March 31.

"They (Bharti) want it to come up in Goa. They are talking to Haryana government also. A final decision will be taken soon," AIFF general secretary Alberto Colaco, who was also present, said.

Mittal said the academy, which will initially take around 100 youngsters in four age group categories of 8-11, 11-13, 13-15 and 15-18, will have all modern club style facilities including multiple grounds, basic training, coaching and medical facilities.

It will also have on-site educational facilities and hostels so that the selected youngsters can study regular subjects while developing their football skills.

The youngsters will be selected under a massive talent hunt programme throughout the country to find out budding talent via scientific means.
