Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli scored half-centuries and stitched a century stand for the second wicket to help India outclass New Zealand by seven wickets to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the three-match One-day International (ODI) series at Bay Oval on Monday. After opting to bat, New Zealand were bowled out for 243 in 49 overs in the third ODI in Mount Maunganui. Ambati Rayudu, who was suspended for bowling by the ICC, was unbeaten on 40 and wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik on 38 as India chased down the target with seven overs to spare. Skipper Virat Kohli signed off his tour Down Under on a high with a first ODI series win in New Zealand in 10 years. However, it is to be noted that prior to this, India played just one series here since the one in 2009. It was a complete team effort after the bowlers shot New Zealand out for 243 in 49 overs with all-rounder Hardik Pandya (2/45 in 10 overs) making his presence felt with the ball as well as on the field. Pandya was playing his first match after the suspension on him for sexist remarks on a TV show was lifted. The chase was a cakewalk with skipper Kohli (60, 74 balls) and his deputy Rohit Sharma (62, 77 balls) adding 113 runs for the second wicket to set up the victory in only 43 overs. With the pitch on the slower side, the two fluent stroke-players had to keep it slower than usual but even that didn't come in the way of another comprehensive performance. Once Shikhar Dhawan (28, 6x4) was dismissed, caught in the slips off Trent Boult, Rohit, who till then went slow, finally opened up. He signalled his intentions with a straight six off Mitchell Santner. Kohli, at the other end, punched Lockie Ferguson through the point and then hit Ish Sodhi for two boundaries. The first was a top spinner that was pulled in the mid-wicket region while the next was a wrong 'un on the fifth stump which he cut for another boundary. Rohit, who has treated Ferguson with a lot of disdain, then hit a front-foot pull off the bowler for his second six. His skipper also got a six off Ferguson even though he was not in complete control as the ball flew off the top edge. Rohit, who now has 39 half-centuries, was stumped off Santner's bowling, when he tried to go for an ugly hoick. His innings had three boundaries and two sixes. Kohli, who now has 49 half-centuries in ODIs, also hit six fours apart from the six off Ferguson. Just when a 40th ODI ton was looking imminent, Kohli's uppish drive off Boult failed to clear Henry Nicholls at extra cover. However, Dinesh Karthik (38, 38 balls) and Ambati Rayudu (40, 42 balls) did their cause no harm with an unbroken 77-run stand for the fourth wicket to steer the team home.
Bharatanatyam (Tamil : "????????????") also historically called Sadir, is a major genre of Indian classical dance that originated in Tamil Nadu.[1][2][3] Traditionally, Bharatanatyam has been a solo dance that was performed exclusively by women,[4][5] and it expressed South Indian religious themes and spiritual ideas, particularly of Shaivism, Vaishnavism and Shaktism.[1][6][7] Bharatanatyam's theoretical foundations trace to the ancient Sanskrit text by Bharata Muni, Natya Shastra,[6] its existence by 2nd century CE is noted in the ancient Tamil epic Silappatikaram, while temple sculptures of 6th to 9th century CE suggest it was a well refined performance art by mid 1st millennium CE.[5][8] Bharatanatyam may be the oldest classical dance tradition of India.[9] Bharatanatyam style is noted for its fixed upper torso, legs bent or knees flexed out combined with spectacular footwork, a sophisticated vocabulary of sign language based on gestures of hands, eyes and face muscles.[8] The dance is accompanied by music and a singer, and typically her guru is present as the director and conductor of the performance and art.[1] The dance has traditionally been a form of an interpretive narration of mythical legends and spiritual ideas from the Hindu texts.[4] The performance repertoire of Bharatanatyam, like other classical dances, includes nrita (pure dance), nritya (solo expressive dance) and natya (group dramatic dance).[4][10] Bharatanatyam remained exclusive to Hindu temples through the 19th century.[8] It was banned by the colonial British government in 1910,[11] but the Indian community protested against the ban and expanded it outside the temples in the 20th century.[8][11][12] Modern stage productions of Bharatanatyam have incorporated technical performances, pure dance based on non-religious ideas and fusion themes.[5][8]
The Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh is the chief executive of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. As per the Constitution of India, the Governor of Andhra Pradesh is the state's de jure head, but de facto executive authority rests with the chief minister. Following elections to the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly, the governor usually invites the party (or coalition) with a majority of seats to form the government. The governor appoints the chief minister, whose council of ministers are collectively responsible to the assembly. Given that he has the confidence of the assembly, the chief minister's term is for five years and is subject to no term limits.[1] Andhra Pradesh was created in 1956 by the merger of the Telangana region of Hyderabad State into Andhra State. Two chief ministers each from the Indian National Congress party had served these predecessor states. The first Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh was Neelam Sanjiva Reddy, later the sixth President of India. Including him, 13 out of 17 chief ministers belonged to the Congress party. Among these P. V. Narasimha Rao, who went on to become the ninth Prime Minister of India. Three chief ministers were from the Telugu Desam Party, including N. Chandrababu Naidu the longest-serving Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh (over eleven years). Naidu also served as the chief minister after Telangana was officially carved out of Andhra Pradesh into a separate state. Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy of the YSR Congress Party was sworn in as the chief minister after the 2019 Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly election.[2]

"Ready To Quit," Says HD Kumaraswamy, Betraying Coalition Chaos

Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy today threatened to quit as he reacted furiously to questions on lawmakers of alliance partner Congress lawmakers criticising him and saying they considered former chief minister Siddaramaiah as their chief minister. The Congress must control its lawmakers as they are "crossing the alliance line", Mr Kumaraswamy fumed. "If they want to continue with the same thing, I am ready to step down. They are crossing the line," Mr Kumaraswamy told reporters, not hiding his exasperation. On Sunday, two Congress lawmakers had launched an all-out, public critique of the Chief Minister and charged that no development had taken place in the seven months on Mr Kumaraswamy's watch. Congress legislator ST Somashekar went as far as to say that there would have been "real development" if Mr Siddaramaiah had got another term. Another Congress leader, minister C Puttarangashetty, said, "Only Siddaramaiah is my chief minister". Mr Kumaraswamy, asked to respond to the provocative remarks, said: "Congress leaders have to watch out for all these issues. Congress leaders must think about all these things and control them... They are crossing the alliance's line. This is not going to affect me but Congress leaders only." Siddaramaiah was chief minister until May last year, when the Congress and Janata Dal Secular formed a coalition to keep the BJP out of power after a fractured verdict in the Karnataka election. He was present when the Congress leaders made the comments and seemed to agree as he said he would have completed development work if he had another term. Today, Mr Siddaramaiah, who now heads a coalition coordination committee, said: "You (media) are the people who create trouble. You ask one person, then second person and then third person. There is no trouble, I will speak to HD Kumaraswamy." Mr Siddaramaiah has been bitterly opposed to the Janata Dal Secular leadership since he quit the party in 2006 and joined the Congress over the sudden rise of Mr Kumaraswamy, former prime minister HD Deve Gowda's son. The Chief Minister may not be too happy also at the words of his own deputy, G Parameswara of the Congress. "Siddaramaiah has been the best Chief Minister. He is our Congress Legislature Party leader. For the MLAs, he (Siddaramaiah) is the chief minister. He has expressed his opinion. What is wrong in that? We are all happy with him (Mr Kumaraswamy)," Mr Parameswara said. The Congress's Karnataka president said the lawmakers had committed a self-goal. "Development is taking place. Kumaraswamy is our chief minister. What Somashekhar said is not acceptable. He will have to explain or face action," said Dinesh Gundu Rao. The Chief Minister's outburst follows days of turmoil within the ruling Janata Dal (Secular)-Congress alliance, which has repeatedly expressed the fear of their lawmakers crossing over to the BJP and the coalition collapsing just months before the national election due by May. In an attempt to stanch rebellion, the Congress checked its lawmakers into a resort near Bengaluru. The ruling coalition accused the BJP of attempting a coup by luring Congress lawmakers. The BJP insisted that the coalition was trying to mask its own instability and insecurity by accusing it. The party's BS Yeddyurappa, also a former chief minister, sequestered all BJP lawmakers at a resort near Delhi. "Siddaramaiah and his supporters in the party are training guns at HD Kumaraswamy. There is intense war going on between Siddaramaiah and Kumaraswamy. To hide this from public glare, they are indulging in some drama of MLAs being wooed by BJP. The fact is this coalition is internally unstable," said the BJP's GVL Narasimha Rao.

After Rahul Gandhi's Challenge, PM Modi Retorts: "Don't Lie To Farmers"

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today accused the Congress of "misleading farmers" in the name of loan waivers, days after Rahul Gandhi said he would "not let him sleep or rest" until the centre writes off farm loans across the country. "You know it cannot be done. This is only being done to win elections. To win elections you're fooling the youth. To win elections you're stabbing the farmer in the back," PM Modi said, addressing a rally in Himachal Pradesh to celebrate one year of the Jai Ram Thakur-led BJP government. Rahul Gandhi's challenge followed Congress governments in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh announcing farm loan waivers not long after the new chief ministers took charge. "It's done," tweeted the Congress chief, saying he had asked for 10 days while campaigning for the state elections but his party had made good on the promise sooner. In his strongest reaction on farm loan waivers in recent times, PM Modi said: "If you can't deliver, tell the farmers that, they will accept it. Don't lie and play with their lives." Targeting the Congress, he said "They did that in 2008 - farmer debt was Rs. 6 lakh crore, they announced Rs. 60,000 crore and they paid only 52,000 crores. In Punjab, before the election they promised, but nothing was given. In Karnataka too, only 800 farmers benefited and that too was token." The prime minister's comments came a day after reports that he held a high-level meeting at his official home in Delhi to discuss a wide-ranging farm relief plan that goes beyond loan waivers. Sources say PM Modi held discussions with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, BJP chief Amit Shah and Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh. According to finance ministry sources, the government will announce a new set of measures for farmers before the end of the winter session on January 5. Among the ideas discussed in the meeting were extending schemes by two BJP governments to the national level. One of them is the scheme of the previous Shivraj Singh Chouhan government in Madhya Pradesh to pay the farmers the difference between Minimum Support Price and the market price.

If you are good at anatomy, spend one hour on that and focus on physiology for two hours. The attention span of a human being could be less. This means, you cannot take too long to study everyday and slog. So keep your preparation time crisp. Even though six hours is required, divide them accordingly, so that you are able to focus during your study hours.


leven pilgrims who were returning from Sabarimala Lord Ayyappa temple on Sunday (January 6) lost their lives after the van they were travelling in collided with a truck. The accident took place near Thirumayam in Pudukkottai district of Tamil Nadu. While seven pilgrims died on the spot, four others succumbed to their injuries at the hospital. According to the police, the pilgrims, who hailed from Andhra Pradesh, have now been identified. "The incident happened at around 3 pm when the tempo in which the Sabarimala pilgrims were travelling from Karaikudi to Pudukottai collided with a truck that was coming from the opposite direction," a police officer said. The truck occupied the right-side of the divider-less, narrow road leading to the collision, he said, while adding that an investigation is going on. The bodies have been sent for autopsy. The injured have been admitted at the Pudukottai government hospital. It comes amid the tensions surrounding the Sabarimala temple over Sumpreme Court's verdict to allow women inside. The area has been on the edge of violence since women managed to enter the sanctum sanctorum at Sabarimala. Their entry into the shrine came three months after the Supreme Court's historic judgment lifting the ban on the entry of girls and women between 10 to 50 years of age into the hilltop shrine of Lord Ayyappa -- the eternally celibate deity. Despite the court's ruling, which came on September 28 last year, no one from the 'barred' age group was able to offer prayers at the shrine because of frenzied protests by devotees and right-wing outfits. Violence erupted across Kerala on Friday (January 5) night with bombs which were hurled at the house of Thalassery MLA and CPI(M) leader AN Shamseer and BJP MP V Muraleedharan, among other places. Bombs were also hurled at CPI(M) leader and former Kannur district secretary of CPI(M) P Sasi's house at Thalassery and a CPI(M) activist Vishak attacked at Iritty, a place in Kannur district. Police have arrested at least 20 people in connection with the violence at Kannur district. In another development, prohibitory orders have been issued at Pandalam, Adoor and Kodumon police station areas in Pathanamthitta district for seven days.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said that although the marriage between a Muslim man and Hindu woman is an irregular marriage, described as "fasid" in Mohamadan law, the children born out this wedlock are legitimate and have claim over the property of the father. "The marriage of a Muslim man with an idolater or fire­worshipper is neither a valid (sahih) nor a void (batil) marriage, but is merely an irregular (fasid) marriage. Any child born out of such wedlock (fasid marriage) is entitled to claim a share in his father's property," observed the bench of Justice N.V. Ramana and Justice Mohan M. Shantanagoudar in their judgment. Upholding an order of the trial court and that of the Kerala High Court, Justice Shantanagoudar speaking for the bench said: "It would not be out of place to emphasise at this juncture that since Hindus are idol worshippers, which includes worship of physical images/ statues through offering of flowers, adornment, etc., it is clear that the marriage of a Hindu female with a Muslim male is not a regular or valid (sahih) marriage, but merely an irregular (fasid) marriage." The top court said this upholding the plea by one Mohammed Salim. He was born to Mohammed Ilias and Valliamma, and court described him as their legitimate child. Having held that a child born out of Hindu mother and Muslim father is legitimate and has claim over the property of father, the court said: "The position that a marriage between a Hindu woman and Muslim man is merely irregular and the issue from such wedlock is legitimate has also been affirmed by various high courts."

India drew the fourth and final Test in Sydney on Monday to clinch a 2-1 series win over Australia, the country's first-ever series win in Australia. Congratulatory messages poured in for captain Virat Kohli and Team India with Bollywood actress Preity Zinta among the well-wishers. However, the co-owner of Indian Premier League (IPL) team, Kings XI Punjab, made a small error in her tweet. Fans on the social media platform were quick to spot the mistake and went to town trolling the Bollywood star. "Congratulations to the boys in blue for being the first Asian team to win a test match down under," tweeted Preity Zinta.

It is the first time India managed the feat since they began touring Australia in 1947-48. Consequently, Virat Kohli became the first Indian as well as the first Asian captain to win a Test series in Australia. India got the series off to the best possible start by winning the tight opening Test in Adelaide by 31 runs on the fifth day -- their first Test win in Australia in a decade. Australia bounced back in Perth to level the series, winning the match by 146 runs. But another Pujara century in Melbourne set the visitors up for a big first innings total and when Australia capitulated in reply to 151 all out, the scene was set for India to take a stranglehold on the series coming into Sydney.
