Slow work pace stalls security sealing of Games venues

first_imgIf there was any doubt over whether the Commonwealth Games projects were way behind schedule, it has been cleared now.The paramilitary forces were on Friday told they cannot seal any of the Games venues and have to wait for at least a month.Nearly 1,400 personnel of the CRPF, CISF, ITBP and SSB were to take over the security of 27 Games venues, including the Games Village, on Friday and seal them to bar public entry.This is extremely vital from the security point of view to ensure that the venues, which were supposed to be near-complete by April 1, are safe from sabotage.Central intelligence agencies have inputs that terrorists could plant improvised explosive devices (IEDs) inside the venues, which could be timed to trigger months later during the Commonwealth Games this October.But earlier this week, the Delhi government told the ministry of home affairs that it was not possible to seal the venues on April 1 as large-scale construction work was still on at most venues.”The paramilitary forces will only be able to seal the venues by the end of April or May 1. Once the venues are sealed, only authorised personnel will be allowed to enter using security access passes.Strict security measures, such as metal detectors, will be put in place to screen even the authorised entrants,” a source in the government said.According to the plan, 600 CISF men will guard the five most prestigious and sensitive venues – Jawahar Lal Nehru Sports Complex, Siri Fort Sports Complex, the Games Village, Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium and the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium.advertisementCRPF’s 500 men will guard another 15 venues, including the Talkatora Indoor Stadium, Yamuna Sports Complex and Shivaji Stadium. ITBP’s 125 personnel will be responsible for the security of four other venues, including the Jamia Millia Islamia and Thyagaraj Sports Complex, while 140 men from the SSB will guard three venues, including the R. K. Khanna Sports Complex.Many of these 27 venues are non-competition venues and will act as training centres.Nine other venues were supposed to be sealed by the Delhi Police from April 1.The CISF had completed security audit of these 36 venues earlier this year and had recommended that securitymen from various paramilitary forces and the Delhi Police should be deployed there from April 1 and bar public entry till the Games begin.Once the Games begin, nearly 20,000 securitymen – including 5,000 CISF men and National Security Guard commandoes – will be deputed at the venues.last_img read more

As curls go out of style, men opt for chemical treatment for straight hair look

first_imgMAKING THE CUT: Nigam’s new look has found many admirersMen have started sticking to the straight and narrow. No, we are not talking about fidelity or sexual preferences, only the latest in hairstyles.While women have perennially been obsessed with long straight hair, men too have now taken to the sleek,MAKING THE CUT: Nigam’s new look has found many admirersMen have started sticking to the straight and narrow. No, we are not talking about fidelity or sexual preferences, only the latest in hairstyles.While women have perennially been obsessed with long straight hair, men too have now taken to the sleek tresses look. Curls and waves are out, straight and silky is in.Shah Rukh Khan might dress up his floppy, straight hair with a generous helping of hair gel and Vivek Oberoi’s stylist might despair of his poker-straight mop, but from the looks of men’s crowns around town, one can safely assume that straight hair is in.Elaborate procedures like chemical rebonding, relaxing and ironing are not just for women looking for lustrous hair like Mandira Bedi who has switched from frizzy disarray to sleek sheet chic. The modern male is now willing to top his rugged macho exterior with silken tresses. After the gel-shocked Aamir Khan obsession and the beach-boy blonde mania that ensnared even Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh, it is now the turn of the smooth, straight look.From Bollywood boys like Hrithik Roshan, John Abraham, Sohail Khan, Irrfan Khan and Karan Nath to ramp rockers Upen Patel and Shayan Munshi, dancer Terence Lewis and singer Sonu Nigam-the list of “straight” men is growing longer. After the close crop in Lakshya Roshan is sporting a new soft, wavy look, courtesy hair relaxants. Even macho man Suneil Shetty has had his hair ironed for the sleek look.advertisementSTYLE STATEMENT: Sameer Merchant”On an average we have seven-eight male clients coming in for re-bonding and relaxing every week,” says Savio Perreira of Waters Salon, Bandra, Mumbai. Monisha Naegamvala of Raih, Mumbai, says she has seen a sudden rise in the number of men opting for straight hair in the past four months. “Even men want to look different. They want something they don’t have to fuss over, something they don’t need to set and style,” she says.Dilshad from Dilshad’s salon, Mumbai, is more matter-of-fact. “History repeats itself. This mid-length look for men was very popular in the 1960s and ’70s-much like John Lennon. Lately mid-length hair has become very fashionable again,” says the stylist.Trendsetter Patel is wearing a relaxed, straight look courtesy Dilshad. “The straight hair look is definitely in. I was on a five-city tour for Valentino and already five other models have asked for Dilshad’s number,” says Patel.Ramp model Sameer Merchant can now step out of his house without running a comb through his hair. Copartner at Waters Salon, Merchant got his hair re-bonded sometime ago and has been enjoying a fuss-free time ever since.”Earlier when I had curly hair I couldn’t bear to look at myself in the morning. But now I don’t even need to comb my hair,” says Merchant. And the new look has worked in his favour. “I have received offers to feature in advertisements from hair oil companies but I turned them down because I want to concentrate on ramp modelling,” says Merchant, who has walked the ramp for designers like Arjun Khanna, Rohit Bal, Rocky S. and J.J. Valaya.RELAXED LOOK: Hrithik RoshanRight TreatmentThe cost for each procedure depends on the length of the hair, products used and the time consumed. It usually varies from salon to salon.REBONDING: Chemicals are used to break down the bonds in the hair and restructure them so that they are permanently silky straight.RELAXING: Frizzy and curly hair is chemically relaxed into softer permanent waves.IRONING: A professional flat iron is heated and used to straighten the hair. Effect lasts till the next wash. Five-movies-old Nath is already experimenting with his looks. About two months ago he got his long hair re-bonded straight and signed a movie soon after he adopted his new look. “A well-known producer saw my new look and said that was just the look he wanted,” he says.Nath adds that an actor should always experiment with his looks and give audiences something different in each movie. “Actors like Johnny Depp and Aamir sport different looks in every movie. They are complete actors,” he says. Meanwhile, he is enjoying the compliments and busy taking care of his tresses with the right shampoos and conditioners.Hakim’s Aalim,Mumbai,is another salon teeming with clients and has half of Bollywood walking in for straightening or relaxing procedures. Explaining the various methods of straightening hair Aalim says, “With chemical re-bonding you get poker straight hair while with the relaxing method curly hair straightens out into soft waves.” The third method, ironing, is temporary and lasts only till you step into the shower. Aalim should know since he has styled many a Bollywood mop. His star clients include Sohail and Irrfan whose tresses have taken on a new look courtesy relaxants and Nigam who has gone from curly to cutting edge with re-bonding. While Irrfan’s smooth style is for an upcoming movie Chocolate, Nigam’s straight look for Sony’s talent hunt show Indian Idol has found many admirers.Dancer and choreographer Lewis has worn his hair long and straight for three years now. “I had gone to Paris for some work and spotted the poker straight look on a few models there,” says Lewis, who went to Gita of Agile Fingers, Mumbai, after he returned to India to get the same sleek look.advertisementSince then many of Lewis’ students at his dance company have followed suit. “Straight hair looks great provided you have the personality and image to carry it off,” says the dancer. Lewis says the look is low-maintenance and though it is slightly expensive it is cost-effective in the long run. “You do not have to use hair products to keep it looking nice,” he says.Though many men are enthused by the zero-maintenance promise, Naegamvala believes that after-care is of prime importance. “The minute any chemicals come in contact with your hair you need to take care of it with the right shampoo, conditioners and styling products. We usually recommend hydra-repair treatments or serums,” says the stylist.Lewis has a few words of caution for all the men planning to adopt the straight look: “You will get a lot of stares and someone might just call you ‘madam’ once in a while. The trick is to offset the hair with macho clothes and a predominantly male look. The ‘metrosexual’ look just does not go with straightened hair.”Like all trends this too will surely make way for something new, but for the moment straight is the way to be.last_img read more

Marlon Samuels to Badrinath, out Caught by Mathews at mid wicket!! Samuels has taken another one in the over! Both the openers have departed now! On middle this time, Badrinath tried to go for a big shot. He was a little tired perhaps and that was evident in the shot as it lacked power.

Badrinath pulls it away and places it perfect as the ball beats the man runing around from third man and goes down to backward square leg for a boundary 9:12 pm | 14.1 overs: Bhuvneshwar to Badrinath, 2 runs, Ganguly puts down another! Length ball angled in to the batsman on middle and leg. Badrinath slogs it in the air towards mid wicket. Ganguly runs back and tries to take it over his head but ends up sticking one hand out and drops it. It was a tough chance and perhaps he could have let the man running in from the boundary to take it. Badrinath gets another life. Ganguly injures himself in trying to take that one and the physio comes to assist him. He seems to have hurt his shoulder and chest there. To the delight of his players and his fans, Ganguly gets off the ground and seems to want to get on with things 9:03 pm | There’s an appeal for a run out and it has gone up to the third umpire. For some reason this decision is taking an age. An absolute shocker! The third umpire feels the evidence is in favour of the batsman. Perhaps the third umpire felt that the bails were not completely off when the bat was on the line and gave the benefit of the doubt in his favour.  12.5 overs: Rahul Sharma to Badrinath, 1 run, low full toss on middle and leg. Badrinath gets down on one knee and goes for the big shot but fails to connect it and it goes to the fielder at long on.8:55 pm | 11.4 overs: Marlon Samuels to du Plessis, FOUR, streaky boundary! On the off stump this time, stays a little low. du Plessis comes down the wicket and gets a slight bottom edge on it. The ball misses the off stump by a whisker and beats the keeper to go for a boundary.8:45pm | 10 overs: CSK are 68/0 at the stage with openers Faf du Plessis (36*) and S Badrinath (31*) in the middle. The run rate is a steady 6.80 at the stage. Needless to say that CSK haven’t tried anything wayward till now.8:25 pm | 5.3 overs: Bhuvneshwar to du Plessis, SIX, what power! Length delivery on the off stump. du Plessis comes down the wicket and employs a powerful on drive. The ball goes sailing over the ropes at long on for a maximum!8:05 pm | 1st over: CSK are 6 for no loss with openers Faf du Plessis and S Badrinath at the crease. The current run rate is a perfect 6. They would be aiming to raise that as the match progresses.8:00 pm | Faf du Plessis and Badrinath are at the crease. du Plessis is on strike. Kartik will open the attackRavindra jadeja is sitting in the dug out and is sporting a new hairstyle with CSK etched on the right side of his head.

MOST READ After 30 years, Johnlu Koa still doing ‘hard-to-make’ quality breads LATEST STORIES Freddie Roach, the famous American trainer who pushed Manny Paquiao all the way to full superstardom, says he wants the legendary Filipino warrior to do a rematch with WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn—then hang up his gloves.Nothing new there.

The beaten Filipino superhero stood before the mirror attending to his hairdo, while Roach stayed at a distance and cooled his heels inside the dressing room.Anyway, it was reported later that Pacquiao had agreed to do a rematch (last Sept. 12) in Brisbane.However, Top Rank big boss Bob Arum would next report that Pacquiao had suddenly pulled out.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games openingThere are two sides to the proposed rematch.One side says Horn urgently needs the fight in order to culminate his championship victory, which continued to be questioned by various sectors.Pardon this, but there are also experts who felt Roach needed the rematch in order to clear the landscape.

IPL 2014: Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians, Match 13- As it happened!

first_imgMumbai Indians won the toss and elected to bat first against Chennai Super KingsWelcome to the coverage of the Indian Premier League 2014, Match 13 between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians from the Dubai International Cricket stadium.Full IPL Coverage Chennai Super Kings defeated Mumbai Indians by seven wickets with six balls to spare at the Dubai International Cricket stadium. An easy walk in the park for Chennai, their bowlers set up the match for them with a disciplined line and length and then McCullum found some much needed form to remain unbeaten on 71. Nothing went Mumbai’s way today as their bowling was not upto the mark and their ground fielding was also pathetic.

The team in blue, coached by John Wright, avaenged their 2010 final defeat by beating Chennai Super Kings in the IPL final last season.After splurging nearly Rs 60 crore in the IPL auctions this year, Mumbai Indians boasts of numerous match-winners including the recently bought Mike Hussey and T20s hottest property – Corey Anderson.

The 32-year-old Captain Cool is one of the best finishers in limited overs cricket today. His ability to hold wickets in pressure situations and then accelerate ferociously at the death overs has earned him accolades all over the globe. With over 2200 runs in 96 games for Super Kings, Dhoni is as ferocious as they come in T20.Brendon McCullum: The 32-year-old swashbuckling batsman is the latest weapon Super Kings boasts of in the seventh edition of the IPL. The New Zealand skipper is one of the most explosive batsmen in the shortest version of the game. His breathtaking knock of 158 runs for Kolkata Knight Riders in the inaugural IPL match showcases his ability to take the game away from the opposition. With over 1200 runs in 48 games, McCullum will be one of the key players for the Super Kings this season.Suresh Raina: One of the most prolific batsmen in the T20 format, he comes to the party more often than not. Not only is he capable of clearing the boundaries when required, his off-spin is also very handy. Raina is also one of the leading run-scorers for Super Kings with over 2800 runs and 21 wickets in his 99 IPL games.Ravichandran Ashwin: He is one of the bankers of the side and can put the brakes on opposition batsmen while also getting wickets. With 64 wickets in 67 games, Ashwin has been a key performer for the Super Kings in the IPL so far.Ravindra Jadeja: He has been on an amazing high over the past one year, with immense success in international cricket thanks to his left-arm spinners. A great fielder, he will also be expected to contribute with the bat. His bowling spell of 5/16 was registered as the best bowling figures in the IPL tournament in 2012. Jadeja has slammed over 1100 runs and notched up 39 wickets in his IPL career so far.Five key players from Mumbai Indians:Corey Anderson: The 23-year-old New Zealand player was known for his powerful hitting but his record-breaking 36-ball ODI hundred made him an overnight star across the globe. With the ability to clear the ropes at regular intervals, Anderson is just the guy you need to take the game away from the opposition. Apart from his batting prowess, Anderson is a more-than-handy seamer with a knack of picking wickets at crucial intervals. His all-round abilities also earned him a whopping Rs 4.5 crore after Mumbai Indians secured the services of the Kiwi sensation during IPL 2014 auction. The Christchurch batsman will surely be one of the most influential players in the IPL this year.Lasith Malinga: The biggest reason why Mumbai are feared by their opponents are Malinga’s toe-crushing yorkers. He was pivotal with 20 scalps in 17 games in Mumbai India’s victorious 2013 IPL campaign. He will continue to lead the bowling and will hope the batsmen can keep up their end of the deal this time around.Kieron Pollard: The 26-year-old Trinidadian cricketer has been one of the most influential players for Mumbai over the years. A prolific batsman, wicket-taking bowler and an absolute livewire in the field, Pollard has the right mix of being a successful limited-overs specialist. The right-hander slammed 420 runs and took 10 wickets to lead Mumbai to their first-ever IPL title last season. Kieron Pollard will need to continue his good run if Mumbai intend to successfully defend their title this year.Michael Hussey: The 38-year-old Australian run-machine was sensational at the top-order for Chennai Super Kings last season. The left-hander was the tournament’s leading run-scorer with 733 runs in 17 matches, a reason why Mumbai Indians paid a whopping Rs 5 crore to secure his services. He will play a crucial role in stabilising the innings for early in the batting-order for Mumbai.Rohit Sharma: While he faced a lot of criticism for his performances in an Indian shirt, Rohit Sharma has been an absolute sensation with the bat for Mumbai Indians. The right-handed batsman has amassed over 2500 runs and took 14 wickets in 97 games for Mumbai in his IPL career. He was also the leading run-scorer with over 500 runs for Mumbai Indians in their victorious 2013 IPL season. The Mumbai skipper will face stern test in defending the team’s title against arch-rivals this season.Teams(from):Chennai Super Kings: MS Dhoni(c/wk), Suresh Raina, Baba Aparajith, Ravichandran Ashwin, Dwayne Bravo, Faf Du Plessis, Dwayne Smith, Brendon McCullum, Ashish Nehra, Mohit Sharma, Ishwar Chandra Pandey, Ben Hilfenhaus, John Hastings, Samuel Badree, Matt Henry, Mithun Manhas, Vijay Shankar, Ronit More, Pawan Negi, Mithun ManhasMumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma(c), Lasith Malinga, Kieron Pollard, Harbhajan Singh, Ambati Rayudu(wk), Michael Hussey, Corey Anderson, Aditya Tare, CM Gautham, Ben Dunk, Sushant Marathe, Apoorv Wankhede, Jalaj Saxena, Pragyan Ojha, Shreyas Gopal, Zaheer Khan, Jasprit Bumrah, Josh Hazlewood, Krishmar Santokie, Marchant de Lange, Pawan Suyallast_img read more
