Actress Lakshmi Manchu will cycle 100 kilometres on February 28 to raise funds for differently-abled people and their ambition to pursue different forms of sports. Talking to IANS, Lakshmi said: "I have been wanting to ride a 100 kilometres as a dream, as something that I wanted to do." The actress shares that her determination to be a part of the cause came after she went to Maldives on a holiday. "After going to Maldives I understood how we have taken for granted about everything in our lives. It was so refreshing to be on an island with people around you with no masks. It dawned on me that how we have taken even breathing for granted and now we have to breath our own breath through these masks," Lakshmi said. She continued: "My heart again went out to these people, who have a limb or something missing from their lives because of they weren't born like this, they had an accident or they were in the front lines saving our country and they willingly gave up a part of their body for ... » Learn More about Lakshmi Manchu to cycle 100kms to support differently-abled
NEW DELHI: The Parliamentary Committee on Information Technology (IT) has expressed its utter surprise on the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) move to exclude state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) from the Left Wing Extremism (LWE) - II initiative despite the telco's revival in full swing."The Committee is at a loss to understand when the revival of BSNL is priority of the government and the revival package is being worked out, why BSNL was not considered to participate in the bidding (LWE-II) process," the panel in its finding said.The LWE initiative, driven by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is considered to be critical in nature following in the wake of national security, with experts warning against inclusion of any foreign vendor.The Parliamentary group, headed by Congress lawmaker Shashi Tharoor, further said that this (awarding contract to BSNL) would have helped the cause of BSNL revival and improved their financial position.

There are some movie scenes you can never forget. For me, it is the iconic chase sequence in Mission: Impossible 2; the highlight of this scene is where Tom Cruise wheelies a Triumph Speed Triple which then goes on to explode mid-air. For years, there was no one cooler to me than Tom Cruise just because of that scene. That is exactly the point about wheelies, they look cool as heck. Wheelies are not all drama though and mastering them can help you improve as a rider, especially if you do not have a lot of experience with powerful machines. When you have got over 100hp and not a lot of electronics, front wheels on motorcycles like going up. This feeling can be a bit scary, but knowing what it’s like and learning how to control it can help you be a better, and yes, a safer rider. Learning wheelies used to come at the cost of having a few tumbles. But there are wheelie training rigs now and Ajmera IndiKarting and Sachin (aka Riderboy the instructor) invited us over to give their ... » Learn More about The thrills and chills of wheelies
Researchers from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety , a research group supported by auto insurers, looked into whether there was some sort of gender bias in the research into vehicle crashes or whether body type had anything to do with the injuries. They analyzed injuries of men and women in police-reported tow-away front and side crashes from 1998 to 2015. Among the findings were that in front crashes, women were three times as likely to experience a broken bone, concussion or other moderate injury, and twice as likely to suffer a serious one like a collapsed lung or traumatic brain injury. Men and women crashed in minivans and SUVs in about equal proportions, the researchers found. But around 70% of women crashed in cars , compared with about 60% of men. And more than 20% of men crashed in pickups, compared with less than 5% of women. Men are also more likely to be driving the striking vehicle in two-vehicle front-to-rear and front-to-side crashes, according ... » Learn More about Smaller cars may be why crashes injure women more: Study
Amit Mishra troubled England's batsmen in the warm-up game against Haryana and should have been picked instead of Piyush Chawla for the fourth Test at Nagpur, says Manu Shankar. A fter England thrashed India by seven wickets in the third Test in Kolkata, the selectors were forced to make some hard-hitting changes to the side . Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh were all dropped and in came Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla and Parvinder Awana. - Zaheer's axe expected; Yuvi, Bhajji made scapegoats: Gavaskar Zaheer and Yurvaj's exits were on the expected lines. The senior pacer has become more of a liability in the team, unable to provide the breakthroughs upfront or even later on with the old ball. Yuvraj made a promising comeback, scoring a 74 in the Ahmedabad Test, but, since then had scores of 0 & 8 (Mumbai) and 32 &11 (Kolkata). But two of the three selections that were rung in for the fourth Test in Nagpur were quite ... » Learn More about Why Chawla, and not Mishra?

It is 6.30 am on a Tuesday, and 20 of us, between the ages of eight and 48, watch and attempt to copy Lavanyaa Gladston’s moves ( c huvadu ) and stances ( v adidu ). She does a series of warm-up jumps, push-ups, and a split without losing her breath, and though we’re not different in age, my 43-year-old body just can’t keep up with her Bharatanatyam-dancer-Kalaripayattu-practitioner’s form. “There’s a whole bottom row of people who have switched off their videos,” she says, referring to her Zoom screen, of the 40-year-olds who are too self-conscious to be seen by the younger people in the class. “But they’re also the most diligent, never missing sessions, and always turning up on time. Many of them wish they’d come to Kalaripayattu earlier.” I’ve thought about learning Kalaripayattu before, the martial arts form calling me in my search for better body confidence, and better reaction time to men who casually bump into me on the road. The fact that the closest studio was 20 ... » Learn More about Kalari, the new yoga?
India continue their march towards a series-levelling victory after R Ashwin’s century on a turning track fl attened England in the second Test on Monday Ravichandran Ashwin hit a sparkling century and took a key wicket Monday to edge India closer to a series-levelling victory in the second Test against England, who face a daunting target of 482 to win. The tourists, who lead the four-match series 1-0, were struggling at 53 for three at stumps on the third day in Chennai . Joe Root , on two, will resume batting Tuesday on the turning pitch. Left-arm spinner Axar Patel took two wickets including Dom Sibley, for three, and Jack Leach, who was sent in as nightwatchman, for nought. “There is spin on offer but it depends how much speed you hit (as a spinner). Bowling slow is not help- ing,” Patel told reporters. Pundits have criticised the pitch at M.A. Chidambaram Stadium with former England cap- tain Michael Vaughan calling it a “Chennai beach”.
