Re: Siddharth Rawat thread

Sid seems to be playing at a top 400 level rather consistently now. Nice to see!

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

The second edition of the Intercontinental Cup will be held at the state-of-the-art stadium "TransStadia" in Ahmedabad from July 7 to 18th. The teams are #83 Syria, #120 Tajikistan, #121 North Korea, and #101 India (but I believe FIFA will release new rankings this week?). An interesting story today...

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

After the King's Cup, we apparently moved up 1 spot in the FIFA rankings (as of now) to #100. We lost 4.27 points from our total to fall to 1214.65 points after the loss to #82 Curacao, but gained 4.57 to go to 1219.22 for beating #114 Thailand. So, at least we justified our ranking there and came o...

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

India leads Thailand 1-0 at the half-time (Goal by Anirudh Thapa in the 17th minute). Looks like the coaches of both sides have rested a lot of seniors and put in new faces. 75th minute. Still 1-0 India. 90+1 ... Still 1-0. Just hold on, guys.... And they do. We win 1-0. So we finish third in the 4-...

Re: Riya Bhatia thread

Well, I guess I had a premonition on the easier-on-paper quarterfinal.... She could not do much and got nothing much for that upset earlier.

[QF] Riya BHATIA (IND,488) l. Valeriya YUSHCHENKO (RUS,658), 26 26

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

And Curacao is #81 in FIFA rankings, compared to #101 for India. Expected loss, but the way our defense cracked and allowed quick counter goals was bad. They scored in the 16th miniute, and then scored again in the 18th minute. Chhetri scored a PK in the 31st minute, and again we allowed the third g...

Re: Imposition of Hindi

Hey, if you complain too much, they will impose samskRtam on you, okay? You would hate that even more, I assume? But to be serious, I thought this issue had kinda died away because everybody (except me) speaks Hindi in India, anyway. Even in Kerala, where even fewer Hindi speakers existed than in Ta...

Re: Lok Sabha elections 2019

The vast Congress machine tries to say that everything was started by them -- but the problem was that they hardly got anywhere. Bam! Boom! This is the truth. Couldn't have said it better, nor more succinctly. I just have to give credit to Modi for tackling some vexing issues and actually making im...

Re: Lok Sabha elections 2019

Sorry, prasen9, you are hopelessly wrong. The reason why Modi got such a resounding endorsement from the Indian electorate is because the lives of the poor (especially in rural India) have been fundamentally transformed in the past 5 years. Only about 40% of rural households had bank accounts in 20...
