India is drying up, fast

Congratulations to all... we have achieved 50 degree temperature this year. Let’s cut more trees to achieve 60 degrees the next year,’ a sarcastic tweet the other day came as a jolt. It was, however, hard to tell whether the quiet sarcasm was lost on a majority of the readers who are following Twitter or had made more and more people sit up and think.

World cup: Belgium knock favourite Brazil out to book semis berth

Kazan, July 7 ( agencies):Five-time World Cup winners Brazil were on Friday knocked out of the FIFA World Cup 2018 after an own goal from Fernandinho and a stunning Kevin de Bruyne strike handed Belgium a two-goal lead, from which the Selecao couldn't recover.

Having halved the deficit on the 76th minute mark with a Renato Augusto header, Tite's Brazil; who were the final South American side remaining in the competition after France defeated Uruguay earlier today; failed to force extra-time with The Red Devils advancing to the semi-finals round of the World Cup for just the second time in their history.

This was also Brazil's fourth successive World Cup campaign that was ended by a European opponent, having previously lost to France, Netherlands and quite unforgettably to Germany in 2006, 2010 and 2014 respectively.

The Selecao started the game on a strong note, wining two corners that should have been capitalised on as early nerves from the Belgians allowed, first Thiago Silva, then Paulinho to have to have an attempt on goal.

While Paulinho scuffed his effort wide of the target, Silva was close to scoring with his tame effort striking the post.

Against the run of play, however, Martinez's men soon drew first blood from their set-piece. Eden Hazard's delivery from a corner was met by Vincent Kompany, with a decisive deflection from Manchester City teammate Fernandinho helping the ball past goalkeeper Alisson.

Brazil's star attackers, particularly PSG star Neymar, were ineffective going forward in the rest of the first-half, with the World No. 2 dearly missing the services of a suspended Casemiro in breaking up Belgium's potent attacks, with Romelu Lukaku running riot across the Brazil half.

His contributions soon resulted in a goal as after a strong charge through Brazil's midfield, he squared the ball to de Bruyne just outside the box, with the Manchester City playmaker unleashing the sweetest of strikes across Alisson to double the Red Devil's lead, with just 30 minutes of the 90 played.

The lead could have been further extended in the first half itself, with another Belgian counter attack, this time led by Hazard, however the Brazilian defence managed to snuff out the danger. Soon after, Alisson was forced to make a brilliant save from a de Bruyne free kick to keep Belgium from seeing off Brazil inside the first half.

The Selecao mounted significant pressure on Belgium in the after the break in hopes of finding their way back into the contest, although, an organised Belgian backline not only kept Brazil at bay, but also helped in launching several counter-attacks.

They were breached, however, with goalkeeper Thibaut Cortois having to retrieve the ball from his net with 30 minutes of the second half elapsed, after a delicious Philippe Coutinho cross was nodded in by substitute Augusto.

Martinez brought on a couple of defensive substitutes late on to close out the win, which they successfully did, although Brazil came close to forcing an extra half an hour in the dying minutes.

Neymar was left unmarked outside the area, from where he unleashed a curler destined for the top corner, and only a match-winning save from Courtois kept it, and Brazil, out of goal, and out of the semis.

Having knocked out one World Cup favourites, Belgium will have to repeat their heroics from today to topple another favourite, France, with Les Bleus awaiting them in the first semi-final fixture on Tuesday to book their place in the Final of the FIFA World Cup 2018.

Congress Names Adhir Chowdhury Lok Sabha Chief

Kolkata, June 18,2019:The Congress today named senior West Bengal leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury its leader in Lok Sabha, after failing to convince Rahul Gandhi to take up the post. At the long-pending strategy session this morning - where Mr Gandhi and his mother UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi were present - the matter was discussed. A letter has been written to Lok Sabha, saying Mr Chowdhury would be the leader of the single largest party from the opposition and represent it at all important selection committees.

The party also focused on tomorrow's meeting called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss his "One nation one election" idea. The Congress has so far opposed it, arguing against it from practical, logistical and legal angles.

The question of a Lok Sabha leader opened up after the party's senior leader Mallikarjun Kharge lost the election. But the Congress was soft-pedalling on the issue as it wanted Rahul Gandhi for the position.

But Mr Gandhi, since the party's rout in the national election, has been insistent on giving up the party chief's post. The party has refused to accept it and there has been an impasse for weeks.

With the Lok Sabha being convened yesterday, the party today opted for an alternative.

Along with Adhir Chowdhury, Kerala leader K Suresh, party spokesperson Manish Tewari and Thiruvanathapuram lawmaker Shashi Tharoor were reportedly in the running for the post.

But Mr Chowdhury - a five-time member of the Lok Sabha - was chosen in view of his long experience in the parliament and the party.

First session of 17th Parl session begins

 New Delhi, June 17, 2019  (Agencies):The maiden session of the 17th Lok Sabha commenced Monday with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah and Congress president Rahul Gandhi among the 320 of the 542 MPs taking oath during the first day of the two-day long swearing-in ceremony marked by some controversy, slip-ups and slogan shouting.

Linguistic diversity was in full play with the oath being taken in different languages as several newly-elected members sported colourful attire, traditional shawls and headgears while a section wore a saffron look. As the Leader of the House, Modi was the first to take oath as member of the lower house, nearly four weeks after leading BJP to a resounding victory in the Lok Sabha polls. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister and BJP president Amit Shah, Transport and Highways minister Nitin Gadkari were among the prominent members who took oath.

The oath was administered by seven-term BJP MP Virendra Kumar shortly after he was sworn in by President Ram Nath Kovind at Rashtrapati Bhavan. Kumar will also oversee the election of the Lok Sabha speaker on Wednesday.

When Modi’s name was called out by the Secretary General for taking oath, members from the ruling NDA thumped the desk greeting the prime minister with slogans such as “Modi-Modi” and “Bharat Mata ki Jai”.

Amid thumping of desks by Congress members, Rahul Gandhi took oath in English. He won the election from Wayanad in Kerala.  Besides the union ministers who were elected to Lok Sabha, members from 23 states and union territories took oath. In all, 320 MPs took oath, according to a Lok Sabha bulletin. The remaining 222 members will take oath on Tuesday.

Interview with Jitendra Chowdhury sitting MP and LF candidate for East Tripura parliamentary seat

After facing a big-margined defeat in the last assembly elections, the state unit of CPIM rose back to fight the Lok Sabha polls on their own. Keeping no surprises, the party once again showed confidence on Jitendra Chowdhury for the ST reserved East Tripura Lok Sabha constituency. The veteran Communist leader, who had completed his first term in office as an MP followed by two terms as Minister in the state cabinet, once again nominated by the party and too at a point of time when it is a fight of existence for his party. In an exclusive interview with Mrinal Banik  of Tripura  Times, Chowdhury claimed, in just one year the association of anti-left powers that emerged before the Assembly elections has broken into pieces giving the CPIM a golden opportunity to script victory in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls. He also put stress on various relatable issues of the state politics which in turn gave the ruling BJP-IPFT government major setback.
