Unfit Rani misses out as India name tried and tested squad for women’s hockey WC

Talismanic striker and former skipper Rani Rampal was on Tuesday axed from the 18-member Indian women’s hockey team, to be led by goalkeeper Savita Punia, for next month’s FIH World Cup.

Loyalty may be difficult to establish in this connection. Anyone who tries to tie Gemini up loses their credibility. For the most part, Taurus fantasizes about the moment when they will both be wedded. They will immediately encounter esteem difficulties if they don't establish their relationship on an open and honest foundation, where the initial thing they learn about one other is the level of commitment each of them seeks. In this regard, Gemini's motivations are commonly misinterpreted, which might have a lot of detrimental effects on both of them. It is crucial that they express their desi...
