Video PlayerClose By Oliver Trust BERLIN, Nov 20 (Xinhua) -- 13 goals in 13 internationals, nine goals in 2019 might tell the full story of Serge Gnabry in a German shirt. But the 24-year-old forward stands for much for than just the role as the team's most accurate gunner. The former Arsenal striker has developed into a fixed point for a young and promising German side. His contribution goes beyond his attacking duties. Gnabry not only delivers for the national team but is a driving factor for his club Bayern Munich. "He is a phenomenon. I see him ahead of a career on a world-class level," team-mate and Real midfielder Toni Kroos underlined after Gnabry' stunning three-goal contribution against Northern Ireland in the 6-1 victory in the 2020 Euro qualifier. It is not only Kroos who is praising the striker's values but Joachim Loew. The German coach is rating his performer beyond just his goal-scoring. "He is overall important as he is delivering passing opportunities upfront. He is … [Read more...] about Gnabry at the center of Germany’s revival
Talks revival fellowship
Mumbai: Yes Bank, facing investor wrath over the actual amount of its stressed assets, is in talks with two private equity investors – Advent International and Apax Partners – to raise equity funds to build investor confidence after attempts for a share sale to a broader set of institutional investors did not materialise, said two people familiar with the matter. The bank may raise as much as Rs 3,000 crore from the share sale to private equity investors as its new chief executive Ravneet Gill tries to rebuild the image of the bank which took a knock in the past six months after the RBI turned down its proposal for another term for founder Rana Kapoor. “The bank has to raise capital quickly and Gill doesn’t have the luxury of time,’’ said one of the persons cited above. “Raising funds in a qualified institutional placement was proving to be difficult, so the choice has now come to private equity investors.’’ Apax and Advent … [Read more...] about Yes Bank in talks with PE funds for equity money
Rajinikanth seems to have ended the recently-revived speculation about his imminent launch into direct politics, unlike in the past, when he had expressed specific or indirect support one or the other of the two ‘Dravidian majors’, says N Sathiya Moorthy.

After dilly-dallying for years and decades, and thus keeping his fans’ hopes and aspirations alive, Tamil cinema’s superman Rajinikanth seems to have finally called it quits. In doing so, he also seems to have cautioned cinematic compatriot-cum-competitor in Kamal Haasan about it all, but in his round-about, philosophical way, as always. By doing so at the birth anniversary celebrations of thespian Sivaji Ganesan, with Kamal Haasan too reacting in his equally inimitable, even otherwise incomprehensible way, the two top … [Read more...] about Rajini can’t, but Kamal may still blossom in TN

Yes there is a slowdown, yes there is a chance that short term, GDP growth could go below 5% but that should not be driving your investment decisions. Ultimately what are you betting on? You are betting on the fact that there is a huge liquidity surge, says Sunil Subramaniam, MD & CEO, Sundaram Mutual Fund. Excerpts from an interview with ETNOW. The markets are sitting at an all-time high. Are markets ignoring all the land ills? We thought the slowdown was behind us but fresh landmines have been discovered?Yes but one thing you have to remember is that the markets had corrected a big, big time. What you are seeing now is just a setting right of that. The market is saying that GDP is going to bounce back. The market is seeing green shoots and they have overcorrected in the run-up, because India from 7%-8% economy is suddenly coming to around 6-5%. Everybody overcorrected and the market and the Budget did not help in terms of taxation. The market is just resetting that. It is just … [Read more...] about Forget macro downers, liquidity surge taking markets higher: Sunil Subramaniam
