  • Next door Nepal: Blaming it on India

    Huge queues in front of gas stations, phenomenal price rise and looming scarcity close to the Hindu festival of Dashain as well as an Eid celebrated by Muslims with much less than the usual pomp and splendour — these are the realities Nepal has been facing since the promulgation of the constitution on September 20. The state-sponsored celebrations to welcome the constitution were cut short and anti-India rhetoric and protests have now become routine. “Countries may be smaller or bigger in size, but sovereignty means the same thing for every country,” said K.P. Oli, in response to India’s cold response that it had taken “note” of a constitution having been promulgated.

  • India look to bounce back in second T20 against South Africa - The Economic Times

    CUTTACK: Handed a defeat in the first Twenty20 International, a determined India will look to plug the loopholes in bowling and bounce back in a must-win second T20 of the three-match series against South Africa here tomorrow. It's an unfamiliar situation for India to start a home series on a losing note, and the manner of the defeat in Dharamsala would put the hosts under tremendous pressure, especially the bowlers. Back after a break of three months, the onus would be on limited overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni to bring the team out of the rut and ensure India get back to winning ways. Unlike Dharamsala, the conditions are expected to be ideal for Dhoni's men here and the third T20 in Kolkata as the surface is likely to be low and slow in nature with rains and thundershowers in past few days.
