Tokyo Olympics: Boxer Pooja Rani bows out after losing to Li Qian in quarters | Tokyo Olympics News – Times of India

0


TOKYO: In a thoroughly disappointing day for Indian boxing, Pooja Rani (75kg) joined world number one Amit Panghal (52kg) in exiting the Olympic Games after an underwhelming performance, going down 0-5 in her quarterfinal bout against China’s Li Qian on Saturday.
Qian, who is a former world champion and a Rio Olympics bronze-medallist, thoroughly outpunched Rani in the quarterfinals, quite literally taking away her belief with a clinical performance.

This was after Panghal bowed out with a stunning 1-4 loss to Rio Games silver-medallist Yuberjen Martinez, beaten by the Colombian’s relentless attacks and pace in a draining pre-quarterfinal bout.

Rani looked clueless in the ring after showing some spark in the opening round. Qian was ruthless in her counter-hitting every time the debutante Indian tried to launch an offensive, striking straight and clean to assert her dominance.
Even the waiting game didn’t work for Rani, whose fragile defence was easily penetrated by the top-class Chinese boxer, who is now assured of her second Olympic medal.
Earlier Panghal, who was also making his debut in the Games and was seeded top, fizzled out after a good start.
One of India’s strongest medal contenders, Panghal was put under pressure by the sprightly Colombian in the opening round itself but the pre-bout favourite ensured that he connected better to claim the first three minutes 4-1.
“They have sparred with each other. In some of them Amit was better than today but in others, it was similar to what happened today. It wasn’t a total surprise because we had seen that this guy is very dangerous,” Indian Boxing’s High Performance Director Santiago Nieva said after the bout.
Martinez’s pace should have set alarm bells ringing in the Indian corner despite Panghal bagging the first round because the Pan-American champion upped the ante in the second round, working relentlessly on Panghal’s body with his uppercuts.
Panghal found it tough to respond and Martinez’s persistence brought him level with the top star.
“We knew what to expect but our hope was that Amit would stand up better in the last two rounds,” Nieva added.
Martinez made sure that there was no let up in the intensity in the final three minutes as well and Panghal ended up being on the defensive for the most part.
“He didn’t have the strength to move, so he stayed inside. Then (eventually) he didn’t have the strength to respond also and he became passive. There the Colombian scored a lot of points,” Nieva said.
“Against no other opponent, I have seen Amit so tired. It’s not just him, in the Italy camp we also had Deepak, who is also a world-class boxer, and he also could not stop him. We were facing a very high-calibre boxer,” he added, referring to Asian silver-medallist Deepak Kumar, who was there with the Olympic-bound group for sparring.
Despite this loss, the 25-year-old Panghal remains one of the best-performing Indian boxers in recent times, having secured a gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games, followed by an unparalleled silver medal at the world championships in 2019.
The diminutive Army man is also a three-time Asian medallist, securing a medal every time he has been at the continental showpiece. It is in fact the first major setback that the youngster has endured since a breakthrough 2017, when he first burst into the scene.
Martinez won the light flyweight silver medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics and will turn professional after the Tokyo Games.
“This is a big step for me in my aim to win the gold medal. He was the top seed and a great competitor, a fantastic fighter, but I was very well-prepared for this fight,” Martinez said after the bout.
“I am in the quarterfinals now but I know I will have to be at my best if I want the gold medal. That is what I am here for,” he added.
His parents, who follow the pacifism-supporting Anglican church, were against him taking up the sport but eventually came around to support his ambitions.
On Friday, Lovlina Borgohain (69kg) became the first Indian boxer to secure a medal at the ongoing Games after advancing to the semifinals. She defeated former world champion Nien-Chin Chen of Chinese Taipei in her quarterfinal bout.

Assam, Nagaland to withdraw state security personnel to reduce border tensions | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Assam and Nagaland have agreed to “move back” their security personnel from the current location to their base camps in a bid to reduce tensions at the border, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said on Twitter.
“In a major breakthrough towards de-escalating tensions at Assam-Nagaland border, the two Chief Secretaries have arrived at an understanding to immediately withdraw states’ forces from border locations to their respective base camps,” wrote Sarma.

The chief secretaries of the two states held a meeting today to deescalate the tense situation prevailing in two locations.
“Both sides agreed that in order to maintain peace and tranquillity in the areas around Ao Senden village and Vikuto Village as they are known in Nagaland, and known as Jankhona Nala / Nagajankha (26°36’52.9’N 94°2227.3″E) and Compartment No. 12(26°34’33.7’N 94°19’05.9’E) respectively in Assam, urgent and effective steps are required for defusing the stand off between the security forces of Nagaland and Assam,” the two states said in a joint statement tweeted by Sarma.
The withdrawal of the security personnel shall be completed in the next 24 hours, the statement said.
The border dispute between Assam and Nagaland began soon after Nagaland became a state in 1963. The Nagaland State Act of 1962 had defined the state’s borders according to a 1925 notification when Naga Hills and Tuensang Area were integrated into a new administrative unit.
Nagaland, however, did not accept the boundary delineation and demanded that the new state should also have all Naga-dominated area in North Cachar and Nagaon districts of Assam.
Major clashes on the inter-state border took place several times since 1965.

Zoya Rathore: I never spoke to Raj Kundra but refused to give HotShots’ Umesh Kamat a nude audition – Times of India

0


Actress Zoya Rathore who has come out and spoken about the dirty business of erotica and porn films is getting trolled and her credentials are being questioned. She’s facing backlash for talking against an industry that she has been a part of. She defends herself with strong words, saying, “I call those people dumb. I came out to say why we did what we did. We had no option and were told by the makers that if we don’t do it, someone else would be ready to take that job up. I maintain that I would not want to do what is illegal and there was no clarity on what is bold and what is porn”.

She further adds that producers approach them with examples of stars like Radhika Apte and others who have shot for scenes with partial nudity in shows on big platforms like Netflix. “I would turn around and tell them that they are paid in lakhs for those scenes and here we don’t get money and are getting penalised from all sides. We are just acting and performing in those scenes”. Zoya was paid Rs 20,000 per day for her appearances in erotic films.

Zoya hails from Nagpur and first came to Mumbai when she landed a BPO job in 2004. She has acted in shows like ‘Saubhagyawati Bhava’, ‘Bade Achche Lagte Hain’ and ‘Fear Files’. Like most newcomers in the film industry, Zoya, too, was misguided by fly-by-night producers and often asked to compromise if she needed a good break. Recalling the time, she says, “People misguide you, and the term ‘compromise’ is definitely used a lot. Most of the newcomers who come to Mumbai to become actors don’t know who real film producers are and they often get conned. I came across one such person who lied to me that I had been shortlisted for a role in a film which was being headlined by Emraan Hashmi and Kangana Ranaut. The producer told me I will have one scene with Emraan but compromise karna padega (I’ll have to compromise). At times, I was told to spend time with the producer. I did not compromise and I was confident as an actor, so, I started working in small films in which I didn’t need to compromise, although even these films had bold scenes. Those films were censored at the time when Sharmila Tagore was the CBFC chairperson and released with an ‘A’ certificate”.

Zoya also fell victim to a publicity stunt by one of the producers of her films, who used raw clips of some intimate scenes from the movie and put them out as an MMS. That, in turn, got her labelled as a porn actor. “It was a huge setback for me in real life. My personal life got affected as my fiancé got upset with me. I also went to the cyber cell to complain about it when the producer refused to accept that he had done it,” she sighs. The actress then stopped working in bold films. Now, a single mother who lives with her mother in Vasai, Zoya took a break from acting altogether. “I was not getting work in mainstream movies and most of the time we were made to sit the whole day with excuses fed to us like there’s a friendly appearance by Akshay Kumar in the film, or it’s Radhika Apte’s production, but nothing happens beyond that. I stay in Vasai and for me to travel to studios in Andheri every day is really taxing and expensive”.

After the first lockdown eased last year, the making of bold ‘web series’ registered an upsurge. That was when Mukesh Agarwal, a filmmaker, got in touch with Zoya. “He tracked me down and told me that I have a good body of work and I should return to work. He promised I would get good pay. Initially, I was reluctant but after he shared some music videos, which featured girls in bikinis, I agreed to do it.”

Zoya was in for a shock as the project offered to her was bolder than what she had done in the past. She said, “It was being produced by Yash Thakur, who apparently lives in Singapore and is not accessible to anyone. But he is the one who has made maximum bold content. I was also offered work by another company, Hothit, who offered payments depending upon what kind of boldness I showed while shooting for their film, and had proper papers which stated that they will not ask me to do anything that I am not comfortable doing. They are the first ones to go to jail”.

Zoya hasn’t met or spoken to Raj Kundra but said that Umesh Kamat from his office called and claimed that he was managing HotShots. “He told me that he wanted to give me a big break but with the rider that I would have to give a nude audition on a video call which I refused to do,” she recalls, adding, “I have never spoken to Raj Kundra but Umesh Kamat was in touch with me trying to convince me to work with Hotshot just two days before he got arrested. But there was another man named Roy who called me from Singapore and said that he wanted a nude audition. He had dropped HotShot’s name too”.

Zoya said that everyone would paint a rosy picture of Raj Kundra’s image as a big businessman and his connection to Bollywood. “I didn’t know what the whole game was but I had heard from some people that he wanted to make the porn industry as big as Bollywood. We artistes were just pawns for this big game and someone like me gets tagged as a porn star,” she rues.

The erotica industry is just as unkind to men. Zoya adds, “Boys are also exploited in this business. Those who are uncomfortable showing off their bodies lose out to those who are ready to go nude for the show. There are boys who come from theatre and are good actors and have worked in good serials. They are told that if they don’t remove their underwear and don’t show their entire back they will not be given work. The boys are asked for normal auditions on the phone and told that regular bold content will be shot and the budget will be Rs 5000 per day. But once they are on set, they are told that if they are ready to perform real sex, their budget will go up to Rs 15000 and promised that they will become big stars as the porn industry is booming. That is how they motivate them to perform real sex”.

Zoya is happy that the censorship guidelines are being put into place and OTT content is slowly getting regulated. She’s glad there is a cap on bold content too. She adds, “My payment has reduced to half of what I got paid but I am happy to work in this new environment and I am much relaxed now. I am happy that humein ab bikini se aage kuch nahi utarna padta hai (I am glad that we don’t have to undress beyond a bikini now)”.

Centre to provide 1 crore Covid-19 vaccine doses to Karnataka for August: CM Bommai | India News – Times of India

0


NEW DELHI: Newly-appointed Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Saturday said the Centre has agreed to increase the monthly supply of Covid-19 vaccines to the state, from 63-64 lakh doses to 1 crore doses for the month of August, amid rising cases.
“I asked for more (Covid) vaccination supply to the state. He (Mandaviya) has promised to help in the maximum way.
“At present, 63-64 lakh loses are being supplied to Karnataka on a monthly basis. The state needs more doses and I asked for the supply of 1.5 crore doses monthly,” he told reporters after meeting Union heath minister Mansukh Mandaviya.
The Karnataka chief minister said the health minister informed him that (1.5 crore doses) would be little difficult but would try to supply 1 crore doses to the southern state for August, and increase the supply in the later months.
“I hope about 1 crore doses will be supplied to the state so that 3-4 lakh vaccinations per day can be done in our state,” he added.
Bommai noted that Karnataka has been allocated about Rs 800 crore fund which will be released from the Centre’s Covid emergency fund of about Rs 23,000 crore.
“About 15 per cent of it has been released so far. The Union health minister has promised to release more in the coming days to strengthen the state’s health infrastructure,” he said.
Further, the CM said he updated Mandaviya about the coronavirus situation in the state, especially the districts bordering Kerala.
A direction has already been issued to district collectors to increase testing and vaccination, he said.
Bommai said the health minister told him that a central direction would be issued with regard to rising cases in bordering districts of Kerala.
The CM said he will review the Covid situation in the bordering districts with the respective district administrations after he returns back to Bengaluru. He said he will also review the flood situation in the state.
There is concern about rising Covid cases in the bordering districts. The government will step up testing of train passengers and those travelling via roadways, he added.
On the second day of his visit to Delhi after becoming the CM, Bommai also called on Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi.
He also visited Raj Ghat to pay tributes to Mahatma Gandhi. He also paid his tribute to former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee at his memorial Sadaiv Atal here.
On Friday, the Karnataka CM had called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi besides Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.
Bommai, who was elected as the new leader of the BJP legislature party on Tuesday, following B S Yediyurappa’s resignation, took oath as the chief minister on Wednesday.

Lahiri lands late eagle, but will need miracle for medal in Tokyo | Tokyo Olympics News – Times of India

0


TOKYO: Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri salvaged his third round with a late birdie and an eagle to card a three-under 68 at the Olympics but it may not be enough to give him a chance to make a run for the medal.
Lahiri, who returned early this morning to complete his second round, had a bogey in one of the two remaining holes for a round of 1-over 72, which placed him T-24th at that stage. He ended Tied-28th after the third round with a total of 6-under 207.
Udayan Mane carded a 70 for a share of 55th place on 2-over 215 as the third round was completed with a split start — from first and 10th tees.
The leader after the second round is Xander Schauffele (USA), has the 54-hole lead after shooting a 3-under 68 today to move to 14-under overall.
Hosts Japan are within reach of a medal after Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama (67) moved into second place, a stroke behind Schauffele.
A frustrated Lahiri said, “It’s been a disappointing 36 holes. I had a good finish to my round but I’m very disappointed, and barring a miracle, it will be hard for me to get on the podium tomorrow.”
“I felt I was playing well and the first round started good but my second round, I kind of lost my momentum and never got it back. The course was very gettable but I haven’t played anywhere near my A-game the last day and a half.”
This week’s weather disruptions coupled with the heat and humidity at Kasumigaseki have made it challenging for many golfers, Lahiri included.
“It’s extremely hot. For the guys who had to come back this morning to finish their rounds and who were here till late yesterday, myself included, it was quite energy sapping.
“You needed to make birdies to get that energy going. I’m going to rest and come back out tomorrow and maybe try to shoot a 59,” he said.
Into the third round, starting from the 10th, Lahiri had a birdie and a bogey in the first 15 holes and then birdied the seventh and eagled the eighth for 3-under 68 which left him six shots outside of a potential podium finish at Kasumigaseki Country Club‘s East course.
He stands at 6-under 207 and is T-28th.
Schauffele was 14-under 199 while Matsuyama is at 13-under 200 and is looking for gold some three months after an historic Masters Tournament victory which made him his country’s first male Major champion.
Paul Casey (Great Britain) and Carlos Ortiz (Mexico) are tied for third on 12-under.

BJP using ‘e-Ravanas’ on social media to spread propaganda and hatred: Akhilesh Yadav | India News – Times of India

0


LUCKNOW: The BJP is using “e-Ravanas” on social media to spread “propaganda and hatred” ahead of the 2022 Uttar Pradesh assembly polls, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav alleged on Saturday while underlining the perils of fake news on virtual platforms.
The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said he has alerted his party cadres against social media content used by the BJP to paint its political rivals in a bad light and also asked them to be “disciplined and decent”.
“Like the demon king Ravana, the BJP is using ‘e-Ravanas’ on social media to spread its propaganda and hatred. Like Ravana, they are there on social media in disguise and spread lies and rumours,” the SP president told PTI in an interview.
He claimed “pseudo BJP leaders” pose as SP supporters, and post and forward “indecent remarks” on virtual platforms.
“I have asked my party cadres to remain alert and keep an eye on the activities of such dubious elements. Party workers have also been asked not to share, respond or forward anything objectionable on social media, and report the same to the party office,” Yadav said.
Taking an aggressive stand against those spreading false information targeting the SP, the party last week filed a complaint against unidentified people for allegedly creating a fake Twitter account of the party chief and spreading hatred.
The complaint was filed by state SP chief Naresh Uttam, who submitted screenshots of a tweet claiming the party would construct a “Babri mosque” at the place of the Ram temple in Ayodhya after coming to power in the state,, sources said.
An FIR was registered in the matter against unidentified people at the Gautam Palli Police Station on July 25.
Sounding a word of caution, Yadav said, “As the state polls are near, BJP men can do anything as they are experts in spreading lies to fool the people to grab power. Their objective is to divert the attention of people from core issues, including development.
“We have asked our workers to be disciplined, decent and practice restraint in the language they use on social media, which has emerged as a strong medium to communicate. Unfortunately, the BJP is misusing it,” he said.
The former UP chief minister added that it is ironical the BJP cannot highlight any achievement of its government despite ruling the state for four-and-a-half-years.
Stating that the people of the state have hopes from the SP, Yadav claimed the party will win 350 seats in the upcoming assembly elections.
“When the BJP can win over 300 seats by lying, why cannot we win more seats on the development work done by our previous government?” he asked.
The BJP, Yadav asserted, has no faith in democracy.
“It is conspiring so that the entire system goes out of the hands of the people. Its intention is that the people should be behind and the system should dominate.
“Democracy is in danger. In order to save democracy from BJP’s deceit, the SP is raising the voice of people,” he added.
The SP leader also hit out at the “worsening” law and order situation in the northern state under the BJP regime.
“The entire country has seen what treatment was meted out to women during the panchayat poll nominations… how BJP goons took the law in their hands and misbehaved with women,” he said.
Yadav had earlier alleged that BJP workers pulled the saris of SP candidate Ritu Singh and her proposer Anita Yadav during the recent block panchayat chief elections in Lakhimpur Kheri.
Based on Ritu Singh’s complaint, a case was filed against BJP workers in Lakhimpur. Six policemen were also suspended.
The BJP has said those involved in any misbehaviour will not be spared.

Tokyo Olympics: Past masters India eye Olympic semifinal berth after 41 years in men’s hockey | Tokyo Olympics News – Times of India

0


TOKYO: History beckons the Indian men’s hockey team at the Olympics as the eight-time champions look to book a last four berth in the quadrennial sporting extravaganza after a hiatus of 41 years when they take on Great Britain in the quarterfinal on Sunday.
With an unprecedented eight gold medals in its kitty, Indian hockey has a rich history at the Olympics with its last triumph coming way back in the 1980 Moscow Games.
Since then, Indian hockey has witnessed a downward slump as the past masters of the game registered its best finish — a fifth place — in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.
Having failed to qualify for the 2008 Beijing Games and finishing last in the 2016 Rio Olympics, hockey, as a sport, in the country went from bad to worse.
But the last five years witnessed a significant improvement in India’s performances, which propelled them to the third place in the world rankings.
Since taking over the reins of the side two years ago, Australian Graham Reid has brought a sense of self belief, bonding and confidence among the Indian players, which was lacking as they often used to wilt under pressure despite having the requisite skills to be world beaters.
Barring the 1-7 defeat against Australia, the Indians so far had a perfect Olympic campaign having registered four wins out of five matches to finish second in Pool A behind the Kookaburras.
Great Britain, on the other hand, finished third in Pool B with two wins, as many loses and one draw.
Beyond doubt, India’s confidence should be sky high having registered three consecutive wins after the demoralising defeat against Australia.
Going by rankings too, India should start as favourites against the world no.5 Great Britain.
The Indians have been impressive upfront, creating numerous scoring chances so far in the Games but the forwardline being led by Mandeep Singh needs to get their act together.
Known for his quick reflexes inside the opposition circle, Mandeep, in particular, had turned out to be a disappointment so far but the likes of Simranjeet Singh and Gurjant Singh have tried to make up for him.
India’s strong areas so far in the competition has been its midfield which comprises the likes of skipper Manpreet Singh and Nilkanata Sharma.
India would be hoping its biggest strength — drag flickers Rupinder Pal Singh, vice-captain Harmanpreet Singh, Amit Rohidas and Varun Kumar — rise to the occasion.
But the most important area which remains a cause of concern for coach Reid is the team’s backline being led by experienced goalkeeper PR Sreejesh.
While Sreejesh has lifted his game by leaps and bounds after conceding seven goals against Australia, the likes of veteran Birender Lakra, Rohidas, Harmanpreet and Rupinder need to to be at their toes against the British.
India’s chief coach Reid too harped on the fact that the teams needs to raise its game inside the opposition circle going into business at the end of the tournament.
“…trying to get on the tempo that we are going to need on Sunday. Good to get a couple of field goals, created a lot of opportunities (against Japan), but I think we still need to get better at those outcomes in the circle,” he had said after the team’s last pool match.
Going by head-to-head record in the Olympics, there is hardly anything to differentiate between the two sides.
India has played Great Britain eight times in the Olympics, winning four and losing as many games.
In terms of goals scored in the Olympics against their next opponents, India holds an edge having scored 18 and conceded 13.

China says Delta variant behind virus surge – Times of India

0


BEIJING: China raced Saturday to contain its worst coronavirus outbreak in months, as health officials blamed the highly infectious Delta variant for a surge in infections spanning 14 provinces.
China reported 328 symptomatic infections in July — almost equal to the total number of local cases from February to June.
“The main strain circulating at present is the Delta variant… which poses an even greater challenge to virus prevention and control work,” Mi Feng, spokesman for the National Health Commission (NHC), said at a press briefing.
The outbreak is geographically the largest to hit China in several months, challenging the country’s early success in snuffing out the pandemic within its borders after Covid-19 seeped out of Wuhan.
But that record has been thrown into jeopardy after the fast-spreading Delta variant broke out at Nanjing airport in eastern Jiangsu province earlier this month.
More than 260 infections nationwide have been linked to the cluster in Nanjing, where nine cabin cleaners at an international airport tested positive on July 20.
Hundreds of thousands have already been locked down in Jiangsu province, while Nanjing has tested all 9.2 million residents twice.
The contagiousness of the Delta variant combined with the peak tourist season and high passenger circulation at the airport has led to the rapid spread of this outbreak, NHC official He Qinghua told reporters at the briefing.
Fresh cases reported Saturday in two more regions — Fujian province and the sprawling megacity of Chongqing — included one patient who visited the tourist city of Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and an international cargo crew member who recently travelled from abroad, authorities said.
Officials in one Chongqing district ordered emergency mass testing late Friday for people who had visited venues linked to confirmed cases.
After one asymptomatic case was discovered in Zhengzhou — the epicentre of recent deadly floods in central Henan province — city officials on Saturday ordered mass testing of all 10 million residents. The head of the city health commission was also sacked.
The tourist city of Zhangjiajie in Hunan province, where the landscape inspired the “Avatar” blockbuster, locked down all 1.5 million residents and shut all tourist attractions Friday, according to an official notice.
Health officials said the virus was likely brought there via the Nanjing cluster, according to preliminary investigations.
Officials are now scrambling to track people nationwide who recently travelled from Nanjing or Zhangjiajie, and have urged tourists not to travel to areas where cases have been found.
After reports that some people sickened in the latest cluster were vaccinated, health officials said this was “normal” and stressed the importance of vaccination alongside strict measures.
“The Covid vaccine’s protection against the Delta variant may have somewhat declined, but the current vaccine still has a good preventative and protective effect against the Delta variant,” said Feng Zijian, virologist at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
More than 1.6 billion vaccine doses have so far been administered nationwide as of Friday, the NHC said. It does not provide figures on how many people have been fully vaccinated.
Health officials have said they are aiming for 80 percent of the population to be fully vaccinated by year-end.
