In Kerala, two medical students dance their way to healing hate and hearts

TILL two weeks ago, Janaki Omkumar and senior Naveen Razak were just regular students at Thrissur Medical College in Kerala, busy with exams. Today, they are social media stars and fast becoming mascots for communal harmony in a state that just finished voting in a bruising election with sharp overtones of religion and a lingering undertone of alleged “love jihad”. It started with a 30-second video that Janaki and Naveen posted of them dancing, in their navy blue scrubs, to Boney M’s classic Rasputin, in the empty corridors of their college, that went viral. This week, a lawyer put up a Facebook post referring to their different religious backgrounds and cautioning Janaki’s parents. The outrage across the state in response has seen student unions in colleges organise simila...

CSK vs DC: Shaw and Dhawan star as Delhi Capitals cruise past Chennai Super Kings | Cricket News – Times of India

CHENNAI: The last few months have been a roller-coaster ride for Prithvi Shaw. A below-par tour of Australia saw him lose his place in the national side but the young gun quickly turned things around by scoring a mammoth 827 runs in the subsequent Vijay Hazare Trophy. On Saturday, the 21-year-old opener showed why he is rated so highly as his sparkling innings of 72 from 38 deliveries and the 138-run opening wicket stand with Shikhar Dhawan (85, 10x4, 2x6) helped Delhi Capitals cruise past Chennai Super Kings by seven wickets at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Scorecard | As it happenedA stiff target of 189 set by CSK demanded a strong start from the DC openers. Shaw and Dhawan provided just that with their 82-ball blitz. The duo took little time to get going. They were severe on the lo...

Red-hot Rizwan leads Pakistan to T20 victory over South Africa | Cricket News – Times of India

JOHANNESBURG: Opener Mohammad Rizwan smashed an unbeaten half-century to lead Pakistan to a nail-biting four-wicket victory over inexperienced South Africa in the first Twenty20 International at The Wanderers on Saturday. South Africa, who were without seven of their leading players, either injured or released to compete in the Indian Premier League, won the toss and elected to bat, posting 188 for six in their 20 overs on an excellent wicket. Rizwan scored 74 from 50 balls in Pakistan’s reply as the visitors profited from the depleted home bowling attack and reached their target with one ball remaining. It is their highest successful run chase in T20 cricket, beating the 187 they managed in a win over Australia in 2018. The industrious Rizwan was helped over the line by Faheem Ashraf (...

IPL 2021: Chris Morris can play different roles for us with the ball, says David Miller | Cricket News – Times of India

JAIPUR: As his association with the IPL completes a decade this year, David Miller, the veteran in the tournament, is pragmatic in his outlook and at complete ease with where he stands at the moment. As star presence in the Rajasthan Royals (RR) foreign players’ battery is high, the South African batsman, who was picked for 75 lakh by Royals in the 2020 auction after he was released by Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), will again have to wait for his turn in the playing XI. As per the strategy, RR have decided to divide the four overseas slots equally among two batsmen and two bowlers. With Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, in all likelihood, set to open the Jaipur-based outfit’s innings, Miller will have to warm the bench for most of the season despite assurances from the franchise’s new director of c...

No breakthrough in India-China military dialogue on disengagement in eastern Ladakh | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: There was no breakthrough yet again in the marathon military talks between India and China on Friday, with the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) digging in its heels on even completing the stalled troop disengagement process in eastern Ladakh as a step towards the proposed de-escalation along the frontier. The sheer lack of any forward movement in the 11thround of the corps commander-level talks, which itself came 50 days after the last one, was also evident in the fact that India and China did not issue a joint statement this time unlike the previous rounds. Sources said “no action plan could be finalized” for completing the partial troop disengagement at Gogra, Hot Springs and Demchok, let alone any progress on the far more intractable issue of blocking of Indian patrols in th...

IPL 2021: Shakib and Sunil are no different, says KKR skipper Morgan | Cricket News – Times of India

CHENNAI: Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Eoin Morgan on Saturday backed under-fire all-rounder Sunil Narine to deliver in the ongoing IPL and said the Trinidadian is no different from their latest acquisition, Shakib-Al-Hasan. His exploits with the bat and ball had given KKR multiple options in the past but the West Indian was far from his best in 2020 and was also called for suspect action. Heading into his ninth season, Narine faces some heat as KKR seemed to have got his back-up in the form of Bangladesh's star all-rounder Shakib. But the KKR skipper thinks differently and said: "Shakib and Sunil are no different."

THE woman who has accused Mumbai-based journalist Varun Hiremath of rape has written to Delhi Police Commissioner S N Shrivastava, with a copy to Home Minister Amit Shah, questioning the police failure to arrest him in 50 days, and asked why the police and the public prosecutor had failed to demand his presence at the time of filing of an anticipatory bail application in court. Hiremath continues to be missing nearly two months after the woman filed the rape complaint. In her letter, sent on Friday, the woman asked why the prosecutor failed to file an application under CrPC Section 438 which would have directed “compulsory presence of the absconding offender” at the stage of his anticipatory bail application.

Late Alexander-Arnold strike earns Liverpool 2-1 win over Aston Villa | Football News – Times of India

LIVERPOOL: Trent Alexander-Arnold's injury time winner ended Liverpool's record run of home defeats to beat Aston Villa 2-1 and move up to fourth in the Premier League on Saturday. The English champions had lost their previous six games at Anfield and fell behind again when Alisson Becker failed to keep out Ollie Watkins's first-half strike. Liverpool were then controversially denied an equaliser as a dubious VAR review ruled out Roberto Firmino's reply. But Mohamed Salah levelled just before the hour mark before Alexander-Arnold responded in style to the criticism he has received of late. The right-back was dropped from England manager Gareth Southgate's squad last month and was at fault for Real Madrid's second goal as Liverpool lost the first leg of their Champions League quarter-fin...
