Re: Indian Shooting thread

Okay, there goes my positive feeling... but then again, 2 medals at O will make me quite happy.

Re: Indian Shooting thread

Nice summary, sameer. That was the general impression I was getting, but I wasn't sure. Good to see that you feel positive about the future.

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

I kinda know what you are talking about. Somehow I had never been to Kolkata before, and finally was there for a day this past week. Amazing city, but everybody seemed slow and late in everything. But then again, I was in Assam and Meghalaya before that (an IIT Guwahati visit -- by the way, the most...

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Great stuff, Florian. What will we do without you? ... Hironmoyee Chatterjee was late and they had to delay the press conference? What was he doing? Sitting in his room and finding the strategy to beat Serbia?... Yikes!

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

India beat Pakistan 3-1 last night in the SAFF semifinals in Dhaka. I guess even our u23 team is pretty decent to handle the minnows around us. Manvir Singh scored twice (48m, 69m) and Sumeet Passi scored once (84m) before Pakistan put in a late goal (88m). It was scoreless at the half and people st...

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

And our u23 team beat Maldives 2-0 today in SAFF cup. Remember that we used to struggle and even lose to Maldives not so long ago.... Nikhil Pujari (36th min) and Manvir Singh (44th min) scored for us today. We are in the semis by topping our group, and will play Pakistan in the SF.

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

Yes, we do indeed have that much of depth. I don't think any u19 player (save maybe one?) would be in our u23 team.

Re: Leander Paes thread...

I have no problem with picking Divij ahead of Leander. But we need to win the doubles against Serbia. It shouldn’t be too difficult to remember that Leander/Rohan turned around the tie against China with an epic doubles win. I actually remember that as a tie that those two almost lost, when they ha...

Re: Interesting thing I found....

That was not at all the issue, prasen. It was $10M that UAE offered. The Kerala CM made it into $100M (claiming that he heard that from a bigwig expat Yusuf Ali, and not from any official sources), and made others talk about India possibly refusing it. If it was $10M and Delhi decided to refuse it, ...

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

The SAFF Cup is underway in Bangladesh and India is there. We are fielding an extremely young team, our u23 side, the youngest in the field. Only 3-4 guys like Ashique Karuniyan and Subhashish Bose from our regular team (and maybe none of the regular starters) are there. We had a good start with a 2...

Re: Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

Jay I request you to exclude Badminton. Hockey and Kabaddi need some bashing and they deserved it but want you to introspect Badminton properly. Except Men's singles we really did not falter. Men's singles is what I considered as faltering. No complaints on Saina who did raise her game a bit to get...

I know. I was trying to have a dig at your age :-) It's possible he knows but does not care to follow whatsapp or internet newspapers, etc. except maybe good old Anandabazar :-)
It was my age that made me try to spin his possible deficiencies as a positive, you know :)

Re: Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

So, he's only about a handful of years older than you Jay. Seems like some guy who likes "tash" and "adda" as Koustav said. But how do you know he is not on the internet and does not use whatsapp? Just hoping that he wouldn't know of whatsapp and internet, so that he wouldn't realize that there wer...
