I think all the hard work was just paying off. The film will mark the debut of Humaima in Bollywood. that little extra effort she was putting in would result in an error. When she would appear to take control of a rally she would falter with the finishing When Nehwal’s gameplan came through though Wang looked in trouble In the middle of the first game a perfectly placed drop shot caught Wang slow to her lunge and set up the winner Poor judgement It was an all-or-nothing approach Nehwal was going with and she needed a bit of luck to pull it off But it was the Chinese who got lucky on a couple of occasions with net cords that fell in her favour Nehwal made two challenges over line calls but both went against her Additionally the strategy meant that when Nehwal got a few points wrong in a row the effect snowballed She now had to take even more risks just to keep pace with Wang while her opponent could play it safe and wait for an error 14-12 in the first game in the favour of the Chinese soon became 18-12 Appropriately the Chinese took the first game when Nehwal with an open court to aim at sent a smash wide The fact that Nehwal was forced to play the tightest of net shots and find the tightest of angles were componded by the fact that Wang was playing with her usual class She mixed up her half smashes with drops with Nehwal rarely able to guess where her clears from the back court were going to land Putting on a show The second game in particular saw Wang putting on an exhibition She quickly ran up a 11-4 lead and got to 19-9 with a rally that had Nehwal scampering this way and that even as Wang steadily built up her advantage before finishing off her opponent Nehwal got a few cheap points from there but the result was never in much doubt as Wang emphatically sealed the match with a smash which landed at Nehwal’s feet Throughout the course of the tournament so far Lee Chong Wei has said he has few expectations from the India Open Super Series and is only looking to enjoy himself The Malaysian World No 1 looked to be doing just that as he played the showman in his one sided win There was a hint of playfulness in the performance as Chong Wei would open up a gap which Kashyap would manfully bridge But just when the Indian had a chance Chong Wei would nonchalantly step on the gas to leave the Indian behind Kashyap’s hopes would have been to catch the Malaysian in one of these moments of complacency His chance came when after trailing 11-6 he had set up a smash that would level things at 15-15 But Kashyap missed the shot and his moment was lost Chong Wei continued in the same fashion in the second game and there were several moments that will likely be uploaded as trick videos on You Tube The Malaysian once shaped up to play a smash then turn around and backhanded a lob In another instance he picked up a smash aimed at his body and lofted it over Kashyap leaving the Indian befuddled but with a sheepish

Daksh Panwar | Dharamsala | Updated: March 7 2016 11:47 am The picturesque HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala is scheduled to host the fiercely contested India-Pakistan game on March 19 (Source: Express photo by Daksh Panwar) Related News India versus Pakistan is always more than a game For instance in Dharamsala this time around — ahead of the World T20— it’s also Congress versus BJP and ex-servicemen vs businessmen Daksh Panwar sifts through layers of intrigue in a bid to understand why world cricket’s most lucrative fixture is facing resistance in this hill-town If you can indeed tear your eyes away from the snow-capped Dhauladhars which lord over the landscape and reduce everything else into insignificance the first thing you will notice as you enter Dharamsala are the floodlights of the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium rising above other buildings and a canopy of Deodar trees You will also be hard pressed to miss an airbrushed Anurag Thakur staring back at you from a billboard The BJP leader and cricket administrator’s smiling face is flanked by the silhouette of a bat-wielding cricketer on one side and that of a rifle-carrying soldier on the other Three words are inscribed at the bottom of the poster: Devbhumi Virbhumi and Khelbhumi Land of the gods land of the brave and land of sports This last epithet for Himachal Pradesh is also the most recent one And it is a stretch For the state’s biggest name in sports — literally — is the Great Khali But there’s a reason why there is a new-found emphasis on “khel” and why the emblematic Himachali soldier and the cricketer share the same piece of advertising real estate It’s because of the third the politician Politics recently has turned the soldier against cricket And politics now is trying to bring the two on the same page Various billboards featuring BCCI secretary and HPCA head Anurag Thakur have come up at the stadium and in the town Dharamsala smallest venue to host the two teams in a World Cup does not have adequate infrastructure to host the biggest match-up in world cricket However Thakur had defended the decision by saying that for a ‘hot game like this you need a cool place’ To get to the heart of the matter one needs to go a few months back in time Early in December even as India dithered over playing with Pakistan in a bilateral series due to stiff political opposition it was announced that Dharamsala would host the blockbuster tie between the arch-rivals in the World T20 Spectacular as the venue is Dharamsala doesn’t have adequate infrastructure to host this biggest match-up in world cricket It’s the smallest town to host the two teams in a World Cup Back then defending the decision to award Dharamsala the match Thakur who is BCCI’s secretary and HPCA’s head had rather triumphantly said: “Looking at the heat generated by the discussion on whether the series between India and Pakistan will be held or not I think you need a cool atmosphere and the right atmosphere is in Dharamsala Itni garam game ke liye thandi jagah chahiye (A hot game like this needs a cool place)” The next two months couldn’t have proved Thakur more wrong A sharp turn of events starting with a terrorist attack in Pathankot in January that claimed two soldiers from this region generated so much heat that at one stage it looked like the match could happen anywhere in the country but Dharamsala Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh in fact told the BCCI as much saying that hosting Pakistan would mean disrespect to the families of the dead soldiers The Kangra valley is home to a large number of servicemen and ex-servicemen In almost every family — or extended family – there’s someone who has donned the uniform Therefore as the anti-Pakistan rhetoric after the January attack hit a crescendo it found a resonance 80 kilometers away in Dharamsala Soon the anguish at the Pathankot deaths — and that of another soldier from the region in the Pampore attack late last month — sparked a fire that threatened to subsume the upcoming Pakistan match as well *** A couple of furlongs away from the HPCA stadium nestled amid dense pine trees is the Dharamsala War Memorial It bears the names of the soldiers from the region who have fallen in the line of duty The list is long You recognise a few names Major Som Nath Sharma India’s first Param Vir Chakra recipient who died in the battle of Badgam in 1947 is one of them He was from the village Dadh not far from here There is also Captain Vikram Batra the most recent name to receive the highest gallantry honour India can accord to its soldier Captain Batra who died trying to capture Point 5140 during the Kargil war in 1999 was from Palampur which is 35 kilometers from Dharamsala Tibetan shopkeepers in McLeodganj Most Tibetans in McLeodganj have little interest in cricket They aren’t looking forward to March 19 but have their sights set on March 20 the last round of elections for the Tibetan Political Leader and the Tibetan Parliament These two Dorjee and Tashi however want the match to go ahead as it would mean more business for the Tibetans and Himachalis alike “Under the present circumstances this match should not happen in Dharamshala In Pathankot which as you know is not far from here they entered our country killed our soldiers and this has been proved that the attackers came from Pakistan” says GL Batra father of Captain Batra “Matches should be held in a friendly environment and under the present circumstances one country is sending militants to kill your people I wonder what the world will think of us that we keep welcoming those who have killed our people” NK Kalia father of another Kargil Martyr Saurabh Kalia who also hailed from Palampur is another prominent voice opposing the match While the Congress CM Virbhadra Singh who is the main political rival of Thakur’s father Prem Kumar Dhumal has now agreed to host the match after the state High Court’s intervention he has said he wouldn’t use force on ex-servicemen should they protest on match day And there are many who are threatening to disrupt the match The Ex-Services League which is led by Major Vijay Singh Mankotia issued an ultimatum against the match “Terror and T20 cannot go together There is no give and take in this issue It’s a question of sentiments of the soldiers the families of martyrs war veterans ex-servicemen” Mankotia thundered as he launched ‘Operation Balidan’ against the match Mankotia is also a Congress leader While there those who are genuinely aggrieved and are opposing the fixture you can also see some amount of realpolitik and hijacking of the issue You can see India vs Pakistan descending into Congress vs BJP especially as the region braces up for municipal elections Dharamsala is set to vote for the mayoral election on March 27 Many feel this is the reason Congressman Mankotia who was at the forefront in receiving the Pakistan team on their maiden visit to this hill-town in 2005 is vehemently opposing their arrival The protests have made Pakistan sufficiently nervous about the match They are planning to send a delegation to review the security situation in Dharamsala Children at the Dharamsala war memorial not too far away from the cricket stadium feel the match should be played The memorial is the venue for a hunger strike planned on March 19 if the match goes ahead *** These circumstances are a far cry from eleven years ago when Inzamam-ul Haq and his boys arrived here to play a three-day warmup match against a Board President’s XI team They got such a rousing reception upon arrival that it was surprising even for those less cynical times Hundreds of people flocked to the airport to welcome the team There is a picture of local fans thronging the team bus thrusting their hands inside the windows to shake the visitors’ In this frame one little girl held aloft by perhaps her father is holding out a Himachali cap as a gift to Shahid Afridi That was Dharamsala’s first brush with big-time cricket And it was also the cricket-mad India’s first serious sighting of the venue that could seriously challenge Newlands on foothills of Table Mountain as the most scenic international venue Pakistani cricketers played a small but significant role putting Dharamsala on the bucket list of an Indian cricket fan Over the last few years the HPCA stadium has become another site of pilgrimage in the region the other being the Tsuklakhang complex the Dalai Lama’s abode in McLeodganj Tourists now flock here from Punjab Chandigarh and even Delhi during weekends/long weekends and make it a point to stop by at the stadium and click selfies with the mountains in the background When there’s an international match here all hell breaks loose The capacity of the stadium is 23000 — modest by Indian standards — but this additional influx of people raises the population of this town approximately 52000 nearly one and a half times You can see it bursting at the seams The infrastructure cripples under the assault of PB (Punjab) and HR (Haryana)-registered vehicles Traffic comes to a virtual halt as the broad-tyred SUVs crowd out the narrow hilly roads But the locals remain happy and welcoming Cricket brings chaos but it also brings big business Indian and Pakistani fans will descend in their thousands ahead of March 19 as they undertake the biggest pilgrimage that a cricket faithful can make: a match between the two teams in a World Cup There’s an incredible buzz about it here It’s front-page news in local newspapers everyday But if you believe all that is written the Pakistanis aren’t likely to get gifts and garlands from local fans Their bus might get pelted with stones this time around the headlines warn The written word however is not representative of the prevailing sentiment which is in favour of the match *** The mood of Abhimanyu Roy fluctuates as per the headline his gaze falls on There was nervousness when the CM asked that the tie be shifted out but it transformed into cautious optimism after a recent meeting between Virbhadra Singh and Anurag Thakur “All this is so illogical It does not matter if the government is of the BJP or Congress the country is after all ours If the Pakistan team comes here with respect and leaves with respect it is after all a matter of honour for India If you shower them with shoes and abuses you as a country will be defamed” he says Roy runs a small hotel near the stadium It’s off season now and the rooms are unoccupied In fact he is giving away — without asking — a Rs 200 discount on the usual Rs 1200 per night rate Will it still be the case around March 19 the day of the match “All rooms have been booked for Rs 5000 a night” he replies “In fact there is hardly any room in Dharamsala for those dates India versus Pakistan means big bucks” Even those who have no interest in cricket — or don’t directly benefit from it — find the opposition to the match baffling Jampa a 52-year-old soft-spoken Tibetan runs a small book shop on the temple road in McLeodganj While the Dalai Lama has often attended IPL and international matches at the venue but most Tibetans in ‘Little Lhasa’ as Dharamsala is known have hardly any interest in cricket Like everyone else around them they are not looking forward to — or indeed opposing — March 19 Their ‘D-Day’ is March 20 the last phase of the Tibetan parliamentary elections Nevertheless Jampa sees a connection between cricket as a vehicle of promoting peace and the Dalai Lama’s teachings of nonviolence Across the road from the temple is Nadroo Fayaz’s shop that sells everything from Kashmiri handicraft to Tibetan paintings and gemstones Fayaz is one of the first Kashmiris from the valley to have come to Dharamsala post-1989 and set up business here Now he says there are 100-odd Kashmiri shops in the region and 300-odd Kashmiris who stay and work here round the year “I have seen tourism grow after cricket came here” he says “A lot of domestic tourists come to Dharamsala nowadays And we prefer domestic tourists Foreign tourists who come here have a different concept of vacation They like to enjoy the beauty of the place and spend some peaceful time with the nature” he says You just need to venture further uphill to Dharamkot and Bhagsu to understand what Nadroo leaves unsaid The economy here is thriving on foreigners many of whom come in search of substance-fuelled nirvana They live on for months on a shoestring budget “Indian tourists want a little bit of everything — a package so everyone earns from the hotel guys to the street vendor The money is going to every corner everyone is happy” says Nadroo “I am expecting to do business worth 4-5 lakhs during the tournament I have never been too interested in cricket but I feel there should be an India-Pakistan match Whatever problems are there are just political it does not affect us locals here” *** As dusk descends on Dharamsala there’s a fiery glow on the peaks of the Dhauladhars On the lower slopes and in the valley lights have begun to flicker In an hour or so the night will be young and Dharamsala will look like a Christmas tree A few elderly people who have come for an evening walk at the War Memorial park are leaving Only a bunch of 13-year-olds remain Your ears pick “India-Pakistan” floating in the air You approach them “We know why the people are against the action of Pakistan but we feel it is not the fault of players They are coming here to play what their countries are doing is not their responsibility Match and politics should not be clubbed” says Gaurav the quietest of the lot his words belying his age Of the lot Suryabhan the most effervescent in the boy band is confident he is certainly going for the match “I am a ball boy so I will get to see it even if I don’t get the tickets We have seen India play the West Indies and South Africa here It is for the first time I will see Pakistan play” he says excitedly before they head for the evening practice game between Ireland and Hong Kong At this very memorial a group has planned a hunger strike if the March 19 match goes ahead The caretaker of the park points at his wristwatch telling you that it’s time You get up and make a move Near the exit a soldier from the nearby cantonment is having tea at the open-air ‘Sainik Cafe’ — a place that does brisk business on match days His kind has been invoked so much in political debates across the country that you can’t stop yourself from asking his views on the matter “Match to hona chahiye ji” he says “Khel apni jagah hai ladai apni jagah” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsMumbai | Published: August 6 2014 9:49 am Related News By: Amir Khan After almost 50 years of running from pillar to post to get her entitlement a 72-year-old war widow living in Pune got some relief with the Bombay High Court on Tuesday asking the state government to pay Rs 75000 as cost for failure to provide a residential and an agricultural land to her She had lost her husband a sepoy in the Maratha Light Infantry on October 27 1965 in Ladakh Justices A S Oka and A S Chandurkar directed the state Chief Secretary to take cognisance and see to it that similar cases are dealt with effectively “Hope and trust the Chief Secretary and state officers will take immediate steps for grant of relief and such people should not be driven to the court” remarked the bench Before he was killed in the battlefield Babaji Jadhav from Khed Taluka in Ratnagiri district had applied for allotment of a 10-acre plot to the then collector This assistance was under a state provision giving priority to soldiers during distribution of cultivable land After he was martyred the state suggested that residential land be given to his widow Indira However she was informed in 1987 that the allotment cannot be done The collector of Ratnagiri had earlier told the court that Indira had been allotted a land in Ratnagiri city He however said the widow was being asked to pay the market cost of the land as per 2001 ready reckoner rates amounting to Rs 47000 The court had expressed

references to the relevant Government Resolutions (GR) the court on Tuesday said that the state should adjust the price of the land as per the ready reckoner rates of 1998 and not 2001 “State should ensure the cost (75000) should be deposited in the pension account within six weeks from today… The payable amount (for land) should be deducted from the cost amount” the court ordered The state should hand over possession of the land within six weeks from Tuesday said the court Indira will now have to pay 50 per cent of the market price of the land – a 300 sq m plot – in Khed Ratnagiri This amount will be adjusted with cost imposed on the state The court also directed the district collector to obtain a formal application from Indira within two weeks so that she can take possession of the
