  • Cricket: Reason for India’s wild success in matches in Hyderabad? A Ganesha temple

    first_imgAdvertisement(Photo Courtesy: Business Line)It is common for someone to seek the blessings of the almighty when things aren’t going good. But is it believable that the upturn of events for team India in Hyderabad is a Ganesha temple? Yes you heard it right!The visit of the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal (Hyderabad) isn’t just another ground but a pilgrimage as you are greeted by a temple for Lord Ganesha. It is known to have been constructed in the year 2011 when both team India and IPL franchise Deccan Chargers were not winning any match in this ground.Following the arrival of Lord Ganesha to the cricket stadium, luck has shone bright on the home side. The first Test at this venue was in 2010 against New Zealand which ended in a draw after which the temple came up. The hosts registered emphatic victories in the next three games here.This trend of winning doesn’t look like being broken anytime soon as India sit comfortably in the driver’s seat vs Windies in the ongoing test match.Asked on how the temple came up at the venue, priest Hanumanth Sharma claimed that it was built in 2011 as “neither the Indian team nor the now-defunct IPL franchise Deccan Chargers was winning any match at this ground.” “It was proving to be inauspicious for the home team. Then it was found out that there was ‘Vaastu Dosham’ (problem in the building design, as per ancient Hindu architectural system),” he said. “Lord Ganesha is the God of Vaastu Shastra. You can check the records and after 2011, the Indian team never lost here,” Hanumanth said.Hemanth also grinned while admitting that MS Dhoni always came up to seek the blessings of Lord Ganesha after each practice session.Also Read:Ind vs WI- 2nd Test Day 2 Review: Rahane-Pant stand propells India to pole position Advertisementlast_img read more

  • India vs England, 4th Test, Day 3: As it happened

    first_imgWelcome to our coverage of the third day of the fourth Test between India and England in Mumbai. (LIVE SCORECARD | BALL-BY-BALL UPDATES)16.40 IST: Murali Vijay: Pressure was huge, and again I backed my ability. I went back home, worked on my basics, and came strong today. I was getting out to short-pitched deliveries and there was a lot of talk about it. I was confident, and came out with an open mind. The basic thing was I did not think too much about the short balls. We had some momentum with us, the way Virat started was fantastic and the way he ended was even more amazing. The pitch has a lot of assistance for the spinners, hopefully our bowlers can get more. Always great to bat with Pujara and Virat.At Stumps on Day 3 of the 4th Test, #TeamIndia are 451/7, lead #ENG(400) by 51 runs (Virat 147*, Jayant 30* ) #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/DLnLRWCm2I BCCI (@BCCI) December 10, 201616.34 IST: STUMPS! An eventful day for India comes to an end. With two centurions leading from the front it was just about keeping up the momentum. After loosing Pujara just on the second ball of the day, Kohli and Vijay comfortably sailed over the first session with some quick-run scoring. India 451/7 at stumps, lead England (400) by 51 runsThe English bowlers will be disappointed as they could not bundled the Indians out in the final session where they could only get a single wicket. Again a bad day for England with the ball as they failed to capitalise on their chances. Jayant Yadav proved his point by sticking on with Kohli to take them through the day with just 7 wickets down. Kohli was sublime all through the day and looks like he has a plan to take the game away from the Englishmen.advertisement16.21 IST: Down the leg side, Jayant Yadav tries to clip it but fails to hit it. A huge appeal by the fielders and the umpire denies. They ask for a review but they have none left. Replays suggest there was a faint edge.16.06 IST: FOUR! Pitched outside off, Jayant Yadav goes for a hit and finds his inside edge flying behind the stumps for a boundary through fine leg.15.52 IST: NOT OUT! England go for a review as Jayant is not given out caught behind. The visitors are fairly confident though. Pitched up and outside off, Jayant Yadav goes to hit it but misses the ball. Bairstow appeals and the umpire denies. They have gone in for a review. The Ultra Edge shows that there was nothing hitting the bat. They have used up all the reviews now. India 411/7, lead England (400) by 11 runs15.45 IST: DROPPED! Root drops Jayant on 8. Pitched outside off and moving outside, Jayant goes to play for it and the ball takes the outside edge in process. A simple catch towards the left of Root is not gathered properly.Wankhede celebrates as @imVkohli brings up his 15th Test ton.

Well played, Virat Kohli! Fuller outside off, Kohli drives it through covers for a single. There was a fumble at covers and that allowed the run. He takes his helmet off and celebrates his ton. He has played an absolute gem here. He actually celebrated it well, with a leap, a pump of the fist. India 370/7, trail England (400) by 30 runsAP Photo14.51 IST: WICKET! Jadeja departs for 25. Jadeja runs out of patience. Rashid floats it on off, Jadeja again looks to play the big shot. The bat seems to have turned in his hands. It skies in the air, Buttler comes across from mid off, goes to his left and takes the catch safely. Replays show there was a puff of dust when the ball landed.

Hit away! Shorter outside leg, Kohli picks it early, rocks back and pulls it through mid-wicket for a boundary. Superb placement, that.14.12 IST: TEA! India 348/6, trail England (400) by 52 runs. An eventful session of Test cricket. The honours are probably even, with India still trailing by 52 runs. England struck at regular intervals in the session as the spinners finally found their lines and lengths to induce the false strokes. The stand between the Indian skipper, who has looked solid, and Jadeja though eased the nerves for the hosts.advertisementBoth Kohli and Jadeja played their shots to deflect the pressure back on England. With the pitch breaking up, every run matters and hence the visitors will hope to wrap this up quickly and get batting. India will aim to delay it as much possible and try and sneak in a lead. It promises to be another exciting session.13.59 IST: FOUR! Pitched short by Moeen Ali, Jadeja camps back and punches it down the track towards mid on for a boundary. India 344/6, trail England (400) by 56 runs13.43 IST: DROPPED! Pitched outside leg, Kohli hits hard straight to the bowler and Rashid cannot grab that one. Tough catch for Rashid. Kohli dropped on 68. How costly will that be?13.39 IST: WICKET! Root bowls outside leg, Ashwin tries to hit of his pads but he gets his shot straight in the hands of Jennings who was standing at forward short leg. Unlucky Ashwin and a really good catch by Jennings. Ashwin waited for the third umpire decision but that was a clear catch and the ball was no where near the helmet. India 307/6, trail England (400) by 93 runs13.29 IST: WICKET! Parthiv Patel departs. Joe Root bowls outside off on a good length and Parthiv tries to go inside out over the cover region. In process he gets an outside edge which goes behind the stumps. The ball hits Bairstow’s shoulder and goes up in the air for an easy catch for him in the second chance.

Good review from England. Floated on middle and leg, Karun comes forward to defend but is hit on his pads. The players go up in an appeal but the umpire says no. Ali comes across to have a chat with Bairstow who is not sure why it is not given out. Cook confers, is convinced and goes for the review. Replays show the bat was very close to the pad, there is a doubt over deflection. The bat actually hit the pad and also the ball and hence there are a couple of spikes which caused the delay. The umpire concludes there is no bat there and three reds follow. Karun Nair again has to go for a low score. Moeen Ali has another wicket. India 279/4, trail England (400) by 121 runs12.44 IST: FOUR! Innovation from Karun! Floated outside off, Karun premeditates it early and reverse sweeps it through third man for a boundary off Moeen Ali.

Floated outside off, Vijay looks to go down the ground but does not get to the pitch of the ball. He ends up hitting the low full toss back to the bowler. Rashid fumbles a touch and the ball almost pops out but he holds onto it. Vijay cannot believe his luck but he has to go. End of a fine knock by the Indian opener.

India 247/2, trail England (400) by 153 runs. Vijay 124*, Virat Kohli 44*. Now that was an interesting session of Test cricket and India have won their second session in a row. Jake Ball struck with the second ball of the day, dismissing Cheteshwar Pujara but that was all that went in the favour of the visitors as both Vijay and Kohli held fort for the hosts with a fine century stand. Both of them have been keen on using their feet well to the spinners.Vijay got to his ton and looked a bit rusty looking to get going with the game. He survived a scare when he was given out lbw to Rashid but the inside edge saved him, albeit a review. India scored 101 runs in the session but will know with the trail still 153, they are a long way off from getting on top in this game.England will rue the indiscipline of their spinners. There were patches of brilliance followed by the customary bad balls. It was about this time that the visitors had collapsed a touch and will want to inflict something similar on India. They are still not out of it but need an inspirational spell to stay on top in this game. Do join us for the second session in a while.11.22 IST: NOT OUT! DECISION OVERTURNED. Bowled on the stumps, Vijay stretches forward trying to defend it and the umpire gives it out. The reviews show that bat was hit first. That seems to be a clear inside edge which the umpire missed and he has to reverse his decision. The bat and pad were really close. Vijay was quick to ask for a review and his confidence paves out.

Shorter length outside off, Kohli waits for it and guides it with an open face through the gully region for a boundary.09.38 IST: FOUR! Kohli off the mark. Shorter outside off, Kohli rides the bounce and guides it past the diving fielder at point for a boundary. He did well to get on top of that one. India trail by 250 runsReuters Photo09.32 IST: WICKET! Cheteshwar Pujara misses out on fifty. The move to open with Jake Ball today works. Angled on a length outside off, comes in sharply, Pujara lets it go but the ball wasn’t even bouncing and he has his off stump pegged back. That’s a poor leave but a brilliant start for England and Ball is delighted. Pujara has gone after a start. Replays show that the ball did brush the pads on the way to the stumps. India 146/2 (52.2 overs), trail England (400) by 254 runs09.28 IST: Game time! The players are out in the middle. Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara are out to bat.09.26 IST: PITCH REPORT – Sunil Gavaskar reckons that the pitch has not broken up yet. There are a few cracks which were bothering but they have held up well. The odd ball has spun a lot off the crack. The flatter trajectory has not allowed the ball to spin. Opines that Rashid can make a difference with Moeen keeping the ends tight. Mentions that the pitch will break up sooner than later given the history of the deck. Ends by saying that India will want to get as close to the England total as possible. Nasser Hussain admits that the England spinners were inconsistent and need to be a bit more disciplined and not let India run away with the game.Brief Day 2 Report: India’s batsmen made a strong start in their reply to England’s 400 all out on day two of the fourth Test, reaching 146 for the loss of just one wicket by the close.Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara put on 107 runs for the second wicket as batsmen enjoyed an easy, slow-turning wicket at the Wankhede Stadium that offered no hope to seamers and some assistance to spinners.England’s spinners were not able to control the ball as well as their Indian counterparts did. India’s spinners took all 10 English first innings wickets.At stumps, Vijay was unbeaten on 70 runs, while Pujara was batting on 47 not out. The hosts trail by 254 runs.The duo had come together just before tea when Lokesh Rahul (24) was bowled by Moeen Ali (1/44). Pujara and Vijay then added 84 runs after the break in a wicketless session for England. (Read Full Report)last_img read more

  • Messi’s dribbling or Ronaldo’s screamers?

    first_imgMessi’s dribbling or Ronaldo’s screamers – Goal readers have their say Goal Last updated 2 years ago 17:16 12/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Getty Images Goal and UEFA Champions League sponsor Nissan asked YOU what makes the most exciting goals, which provided some intriguing results What makes a great goal? What type of strikes are the most memorable, which mean the most, and which echo loudest in history?Goal and UEFA Champions League sponsor Nissan wanted to find out, so we put that question to you, our users.The results were intriguing, and reflected the cultural and geographical differences between the way those of us around the world consume the beautiful game. Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing But there were some things on which a general consensus was found. For example, everyone loves a screamer – regardless of the adjective we use to describe them. Football is, after all, a universal language.Nissan Messi Ronaldo 11092017Thirty-one per cent of Goal users from around the world cited long-range shots as the game’s most exciting goals. Unequivocally the most exciting type of goal to our global users, however, were those that arrived via magical solo-runs, with 35% preferring goals of individual brilliance; ostensibly preferring Lionel Messi’s dribbles to Cristiano Ronaldo’s bullets.Our global audience also agreed that team play provided the best origin of any goal, with 40% stating their preference for a strike that arrived after a slick passing move.Having established what type of goal you find most exciting, we wanted to know who you love to see scoring. The idol was popular across the board, with 37% of global users saying they wanted to see the star of the show.And of course, almost everyone agreed that nothing is more exciting than a stoppage-time goal in a final.Goal Nissan GFX Late GoalsGlobally, there was also a consensus that great goals are best experienced live at the stadium – which was particularly interesting in Asia, where a massive 54% debunked the myth that football fans from the continent are more interested in games taking place on the other side of the world.Asian fans also voiced their fondness for experiencing excitement digitally and, in a region where individuals are championed more than anywhere else, they categorically backed the idol – with a region-high 43% of users backing the superstar.Indeed, there were some interesting results when we broke down our feedback geographically. Spectacular shots from distance proved the most popular among European users, while individual goals were most enjoyed among football fans from Africa – a region that has always cherished the genius of the game’s great dribblers. Goal Nissan GFX idolThirty-four per cent of readers in Africa – a continent accustomed to losing its brightest talent at an ever-decreasing age – however, said they wanted to see the ‘wonderkid’ find the net. Indeed, Africa was the only continent that preferred seeing a goal from a youngster rather than an established star.South America, meanwhile, the region which continues to produce football’s greatest individual talents, predictably lauded the solo goal most, with a whopping 45% insisting they were the most exciting type of goal.Interestingly, South Americans told us they valued no origin of a goal more than that which begins with a pattern of team passing – though at just 27% it was the continent most undecided. South Americans were unanimous, however, in their love of the soundtrack to each goal. Goal Nissan GFX team gameIn a continent where radio played such a huge role in the early development of the game, the region unsurprisingly boasts the most excited commentators in the world, and South American fans insisted those calling the action brought an extra dimension to those special moments. Back in the old continent, 41% of users in Europe – where the game is undoubtedly at its highest standard but still has to import its individual talent from South America – preferred team interplay to individual moments, stating their excitement around great passing moves and ruthless counter-attacks. The bigger the club, the more goals are enjoyed in Europe, it appears, where 22% said they liked nothing better than seeing the giants hit the net.last_img read more

  • VC asks teachers not to comment on students

    first_imgNew Delhi: Jamia Millia Islamia’s first woman Vice-Chancellor Najma Akhtar has urged varsity staff to ensure that they pass no comments on students’ clothing, complexion, race or religion.Addressing the members of the teaching and the non-teaching fraternity, Professor Akhtar underlined the need for updating the existing courses, overhauling outdated ones and opening new courses in sync with contemporary demands. “Growth and development of an institution has two dimensions consolidation and expansion. We must try to consolidate what we already have, update and tone up programmes that have been running and overhaul those that are outdated and lagging behind,” she said. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehiclesAkhtar said JMI is a gender-sensitive institution and right from its inception, it has embraced the idea of co-education and healthy mixing and growth of both genders. “Let us do nothing or make no such utterances that can be even remotely be interpreted as disrespectful or derogatory to women,” she cautioned. Staff members should not make any comments on a student’s clothing, complexion, race, place of origin or religion, Vice-Chancellor Najma Akhtar said. “Women empowerment will be a special focus of the current administration,” the vice-chancellor said, adding, “let us all cultivate common virtues of humanity and cosmopolitanism.last_img read more

  • UN Rights chief to urge UNHRC to give Sri Lanka more time

    The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Al Ra’ad Al Hussein, is to urge the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva to give Sri Lanka more time to show more progress in several areas.In an advanced version of his oral update on Sri Lanka to be presented to the Council tomorrow, which has been made public, Zeid Al Ra’ad Al Hussein says overall, the Human Rights Council should be encouraged thus far by the steps that the Government of Sri Lanka has taken to implement some of the key commitments made in Resolution 30/1, and the consultations and preparations now underway to further elaborate and design the transitional justice mechanisms. The High Commissioner believes the Government’s efforts to implement its commitments in Resolution 30/1 will require a comprehensive strategy that enables it to pursue different processes in a coordinated, integrated and appropriately sequenced manner.Such a strategy, he says, would bring together the currently unwieldy coordination arrangements within Government and facilitate greater coordination of international donor support.“It should be backed up by a concerted public information campaign that would mobilise the power and participation of civil society behind the transitional justice process. This would also increase transparency and ensure that the current consultation process with victims and civil society can be maximized and have a meaningful input into the design of transitional justice mechanisms. OHCHR continues to stand ready to provide further advice and technical assistance,” he says. “Once established, the new Office of Missing Persons will hopefully provide at least a form of immediate redress for the families of the disappeared. Nonetheless, the establishment of full transitional justice mechanisms will be needed to provide a comprehensive response to past human rights violations and ensure that they do not reccur,” he says. He says the restoration of the Constitutional Council, an independent Human Rights Commission and the ratification of the Disappearances Convention (CED) are important achievements that will leave a legacy for the future. He also notes that more rapid and sustained progress could have been made on other issues, such as the release of land and detainees and the revision of the PTA and witness protection laws, which would build confidence with the minority community.The High Commissioner says the early momentum established in investigating emblematic cases must be sustained, as early successful prosecutions would mark a turning point from the impunity of the past. Continuing allegations of arbitrary arrest, torture and sexual violence, as well as more general military surveillance and harassment, must be swiftly addressed, and the structures and institutional culture that promoted those practices be dismantled, to show there will be no tolerance for practices of the past. Nevertheless, the High Commissioner urges the Government to take concrete steps to address the impatience, anxiety and reservations towards the process that stem from various quarters, and reiterates the importance for all Sri Lankans to rally behind the process.He also says the encouragement and support of the Human Rights Council has been crucial in underpinning this process and giving assurance and confidence to all stakeholders, particularly the victim community.The High Commissioner therefore hopes the Human Rights Council will sustain its close engagement and he looks forward to reporting on further progress at its thirty-fourth session. (Colombo Gazette) The High Commissioner notes that inevitably, the transformative process on which Sri Lanka is embarked will take time and that dealing with the multiple tracks of constitutional reform, transitional justice, economic recovery and security sector reform would tax the capacity of any government. read more

  • Several airlines including Srilankan bans Samsung 7 Note

    Following a ban by the US Federal Aviation Authority, Japan’s transport ministry ordered airlines to completely ban the Note 7 from flights, including the country’s largest operators All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines. Several airlines including Srilankan Airlines have banned the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 over safety concerns.Srilankan Airlines said that passengers will be informed at airport counters on the move to ban the phone on its flight. The exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phablets have highlighted the risks of lithium-ion batteries and their potential for damage within enclosed or flammable environments. But they are not the first battery-containing devices to be banned from flights. (Colombo Gazette) South Korea’s Asiana has banned Note 7s from all flights, while almost all mainland Chinese airlines including Cathay Pacific have also banned the device. Hong Kong’s international airport have prohibited passengers from carrying the device on any incoming or outgoing flights, either in checked or carry-on baggage, while Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express have both joined the ban.Australian and New Zealand airlines have banned the phone from all planes, as have Singapore Airlines, Taiwan’s two biggest airlines China Airlines and EVA Air and Malaysia-based AirAsia. Korean Air follows Government guidelines requiring Note 7s to be turned off in-flight and only transported in carry-on luggage, operating a total ban on flights to-and-from the US, Canada and Hong Kong.In Europe, Germany’s Air Berlin banned the Note 7 from flights from Saturday, while rival Lufthansa said that the device was banned on US flights and will soon be prohibited on all others. Italy’s flagship airline Alitalia joined in on the ban too, while British Airways prohibits the Note 7 on flights going to the US, Canada and Hong Kong.Several airlines have also started taking the precaution of fitting planes with new fire-containment bags, which are designed to seal up and prevent electronic devices that have caught fire from damaging the plane. Meanwhile the Guardian newspaper reported that airlines around the world have now banned Samsung’s troubled Galaxy Note 7 smartphone over the fire risks posed by the device’s lithium-ion battery. read more

  • No Love for the Little Guy

    first_imgNew York As Center of the UniverseOn the consumer side, ASME is acting as though New York City really is the center of the media universe. Last month, Folio: senior editor Dylan Stableford wrote a blog post asking whether the National Magazine Awards have become too New York-centric. Of the 128 Ellies finalists, 78 are based in New York City (with The New Yorker and New York combining for 21 nominations alone). “It’s always been a criticism of the media at-large,” Stableford wrote. “It locks its viewfinder on New York—and to a lesser extent, L.A.—and nothing else. And the media that covers media—particularly the journalists that cover the magazine and advertising industries—are especially prone to overstating the importance of New York, or, perhaps more accurately, not expanding the scope beyond Manhattan enough.”One respondent to Stableford’s post wrote, “I couldn’t agree more that ASME is a NYC club of the first water. In the past the media world really WAS centered in NYC. For some intervening years, there has been some terrific work and inspiring innovation elsewhere—even in Gasp!, the Midwest and Northwest. But now we’re seeing a retrenching of media in NYC because it’s the marquee brands that are monopolizing the attention economy.”Meanwhile, MarketWatch’s Jon Friedman also took a swipe at the National Magazine Awards (in a March 21st column titled, “Why the National Magazine Awards Are a Crock”). “Two words neatly sum up the selection of the nominees and winners: popularity contest,” wrote Friedman. “I’m not disparaging the quality of the nominees. The publishing world would, however, be much better served if these coveted Ellies, as the awards are known, were determined by something more relevant, such as a magazine’s primary subject.”Token Awards?Even the smaller titles that are recognized by the Neals and National Magazine Awards tend to be the same old faces. The Neals should be given credit for giving the occasional nod to smaller publishers, including nominations for Phoenix Media Network and Marketing & Technology Group (which won this year for Best Single Issue with its magazine Plate). However, both of these smaller publishers have been recognized in the past by the Neals.Smaller publishers are recognized by the Ellies typically in the under 100,000 circulation category (naturally), but not that often in other categories. In 2006, Virginia Quarterly Review was a surprise finalist and winner of two National Magazine Awards: general excellence among publications with circulations under 100,000 and fiction. After two more nominations in 2007, Virginia Quarterly Review has been named a finalist again for the 2008 awards. Denver city magazine 5280 (which has made a committed push to attract national editorial talent) is nominated as a finalist in the Public Interest category and two Emmis titles, Atlanta and Los Angeles, are also nominated while Emmis’ Texas Monthly saw its nearly decade-long streak of National Magazine Award nominations end this year. Recently, American Business Media named the winners of the 2008 Jesse H. Neal Awards while the American Society of Magazine Editors announced the finalists for its annual National Magazine Awards. The two awards programs single out the best of b-to-b and consumer magazine editorial. So how come “the best” always seems to be the same handful of large publishers? IDG and ALM dominated the field at the 54th annual Neal Awards, with IDG’s CSO winning the Grand Neal for an article titled “Red Gold Rush.” Counting its CXO unit, IDG was nominated for 15 awards and won seven. ALM was nominated for 12 Neals and won five. Other finalists included perennial Neal mainstays Advanstar Communications (six nods, down from a whopping 13 last year), McGraw-Hill and of course, Crain Communications. (Two of the usual Neal winners—Ziff’s Baseline and Advanstar’s Medical Economics—weren’t on the list of finalists this year.)None of this is really new. During the 2005 Neal Awards, an attendee told Folio:, “I’m not saying they’re not deserving but it’s getting to be like the Academy Awards. It would be nice to see some new blood up there.” last_img read more

  • National Bank embroiled in difficulties

    first_imgThe first general National Bank is embroiled in difficulties with its top loan defaulters as it’s not being able to either recover the loans or take legal action against the influential loan defaulters.Against this backdrop, the volume of the defaulted loans is escalating by the day, with interest adding up steadily.On the other hand, the bank is running with an acting managing director (MD) for the last nine months although the bank company act does not permit any bank to run more than three months with an acting MD.The bank company act rather stipulates that if any situation crops up when a bank needs to run with acting MD for more than three months, then it is the central bank – Bangladesh Bank – which would appoint an administrator for the bank.But in this case of the National Bank, the central bank remains silent.   National Bank chairman Zainul Haque Sikder, a person said to be very close to the present government, has investments in a medical college, a hospital, a tea garden, a power plant, and real estate. Six of his family members are directors of the bank.The five top debtors, Safari Traders, IPSU Trading, Cambridge International, Dreamwork Park and Monwara Trading, owe Tk 60 billion combined to the bank.Last June the default loans amounted to more than Tk 24 billion which is 11% of the total distributed loans.Bangladesh Bank appointed an observer from last October to no avail.Acting managing director of National Bank Choudhury Moshtaq Ahmed did not talk with Prothom Alo while deputy managing director ASM. Bulbul said, “We are trying to recover the money from the defaulters. Many have paid already. We’re trying to improve things.”Bangladesh Bank said during March-June, National Bank recovered only Tk 1.7 billion taka and rescheduled Tk 1.2 billion. It also recovered Tk 1.4 billion of written-off loans.The unaudited financial report shows the bank’s income has increased due to EPS (earnings per share) increase in July-September though the combined EPS drops.In 2015 Bangladesh Bank questioned the transparency of the Taka 27 billion loans sanctioned to IPSU and Cambridge International. It identified Sikder Real Estate, owned by Z H Sikder, as the real benefactor of these loans.According to the report of central bank, the Nimtoli branch sanctioned a loan of Tk 400 million on 21 April in 2013. The loan was issued against a 2-day old account in the name of Ipsu Trading. The money was used to buy a floor in ZH Sikder shopping complex of Sikder real estate. The shopping complex is located in Sirajdikhan’s Nimtoli bazar of Munshiganj. The per square foot price of that property was TK 12 thousand and 820 which was higher than the current market price.Another account was opened in the name of Cambridge International in the Simanta Square branch on 13 May, 2013. The account holder applied for a loan of  Tk1.32 billion for buying property which was approved in a meeting by the executive committee in the next day.Tk 550 million on 22 May, another Tk 550 million on 27 May and  Tk 410 million on 28 May was disbursed through Pay Order in favour the seller of the building and the bank’s MD Monowar Sikder. And the floor was purchased at Tk 12,000 per square foot in this case too. The bank’s directors are the real beneficiaries. Top loan defaultersAmong the top defaulters, Safari Traders has got a loan of Tk 1.57 billion, Ipsu Trading got 1.45 billion, Cambridge International Tk 1.36 billion, Dreamworld Park had Tk1.33 billion, Monwara Trading Tk 1.17 billion, Sagir & Brothers got Tk 1.21 billion, Jalal & Sons Tk 720 million, an engineer of  Landmark got Tk 660 million, Ahad Trading got Tk 640 million, Shah Jute and Plastic got Tk 430 million, Jamuna Agro got Tk 310 million, Sinha Securities got Tk 220 million, Mim Trading got Tk 200 million, Sinha Properties got Tk 190 million,  Citadel Properties got Tk 190 million, HR Group  got Tk 190 million, Newage Tobacco got Tk 170 million, Fa Apparel got Tk 180 million and Mansur & Sons had got a loan of  Tk 160 million.Running with an acting MDChowdhury Mostaq Ahmed, the additional MD, was appointed as the acting MD on 1 February when the previous MD, Shariful Islam, retired.Premier Property Development is said to take a loan of Tk 2 billion from the Banani branch of National Bank.  HBM Iqbal, the chairman of the bank and former member of parliament was the only guarantor of the loan. Instead of spending the money, the whole amount was deposited in the same bank as Fixed Deposit Receipt (FDR).Bangladesh Bank conducted an investigation and found the irregularity. They asked National Bank to recall the entire  loan. Mostaq Chowdhury deliberately gave false information about the loan, the report showed. That is why Bangladesh Bank did not allow him to be full-fledged managing director of National Bank.last_img read more

  • QF adds services to Perth Dallas

    first_img‘Responding to passenger demand’, Qantas has announced it will increase services between Perth and Melbourne as well as Sydney to Dallas/Fort Worth.Commencing 15 October this year, the airline will replace flights currently operated by the Boeing 767 aircraft to the A330 – adding 24 extra A330 services between Perth and Melbourne, from 44 to 68 per week.The carrier will also reintroduce the Boeing 747 on services between Sydney and Perth from 9 July.The carrier’s domestic chief executive Lyell Strambi said the extra service would meet increasing demand for premium travel for business and leisure travellers flying to Perth.Meanwhile commencing 1 July the airline is hoping to tap into the growing US visitor market with extra flights between Sydney and Dallas/Fort Worth.Launching services to the region with four flights per week, the airline added two extra services in January this year and will move to daily next month.
