    Few years back a student from my area committed suicide in Kota after he failed to clear JEE. He was a general category student, had he been SC-ST he would have got a seat in the top 5 IITs. Tab kisi ne nahin bola ki reservation is to blame, poor Brahmin boy is a victim etc etc. Why are the opportunist morons, esp the TN politicians blaming NEET now and playing the Dalit card? This is sad news but society and peer pressure are to blame, not NEET or any political party. Pretty sure the girl had some depression/mental issues and take my word..if not NEET she would have committed suicide for some other reason. Such mentally depressed people desperately seek an opening to free themselves from responsibility/society/environment, only proper counselling could have saved her. We need to treat mental illness at par with other diseases and have many well trained counselors in every ward to help out the vulnerable sections, mostly students or unemployed youth.

    I am no Sachin fan but my verdict for Thakur
  5. 2 points
    I have been wanting Shardul Thakur to play for India for quite some time now ..... because he is pacy, has a wide range of skills ( swing and seam both ways, reverse swing, bounce, bouncers, yorkers ) and picks up loads of wickets in important FC and List A matches ( A-tours, Ranji knock-outs, practice match against SA touring team etc. ). He has a decent seam position too. -- Shardul bowling in Ranji Trophy final 2016-17 and gets a 4-fer He is bowling an impeccable line and length here at pace and one of the wickets is off a quick bouncer. http://www.bcci.tv/videos/id/3742/ranji-trophy-final-2016-17-mumbai-vs-gujarat-shardul-thakurs-484 -- Next he is seen bowling in Ranji Trophy final 2015-16 and gets a 5-fer. He performs in big matches and takes loads of wickets. He bounces out Pujara here with a snorter, gets another batter with a short one, bowls an excellent yorker and we see a good outswinger too. http://www.bcci.tv/videos/id/2028/ranji-trophy-2015-16-saurashtra-vs-mumbai-shardul-thakurs-5-wicket-haul

    No one is hating Dhoni, why can't people understand. It is all about Indian team and Indian team's success.Nobody is expecting Dhoni to be Dhoni of 2006 except selectors. These kind of series should be all about finding the future. I always said before CT Dhoni should be no4 and CT is done and dusted, it is time to move one and find ideal combination for 2019.I don't see how India is going to do anything good if Dhoni is still no5 or 6.

    IPL broadcast deal speculation thread

    I, for one, am glad that SC dismissed Swamy's petition, an e-auction wouldn't yield the best price for BCCI at this juncture. Unless Subramanian Swamy/Supreme Court/Vinod Rai and other assorted vested interests have other plans, BCCI would look to unveil the broadcast deal in three days time. The imminent broadcast deal would run for a period of five years from 2018 onward. The last deal was worth approx $1.6 billion and ran for a total of 9 years (or was it 8 seasons?). I can inform you guys that the 'data room' has been set up and working full time since last 4 weeks already to send out documents and other information to financial bidders. The one piece of information that caught my eye was the figure Swamy used in his petition at the SC to substitute the current bidding process with an e-auction. He mentioned broadcast rights worth 30,000 crore rupees. In other reports, figures have varied from USD 2-3 billion. Even if the winning bid comes at the lower end of speculated amount at USD 2 billion, it would shade the AFL - Australia's biggest sporting league. AFL media rights went for AUD2.5 for a priod of 6 years. Also keep an eye on internet rights, and whether firms like Amazon etc can challenge Star Sports who'd offer a bundled bid. Seems unlikely to me. Anyhoo, this would mean doubling of revenues for BCCI and franchises alike. We would very likely see the players' auction purse doubled. I can imagine some one like Pandya fetching close to USD 5 million in this next auctions.

    Rahul at 4 : Discussion Thread

    KLR is our future, give him 10-15 matches and see how he'll do. If we had applied the same rules to other players, I wonder how many times they would have been kicked from the team.

    Supreme court rulings

    Really scared now, hope SC doesn't eff it up as usual. Rohingyas must be kicked out of India ASAP. 40,000 already here breeding like pigs and unsurprisingly 10000 of them are in Jammu presumably to change the demographics of the region. Pretty sure we will have communal riots after we deport them but better now than wait and watch till their population hits 1 lakh.

    This is an argument of convenience. I can promise you almost 90 % of all media content should be removed on rational of objectification alone.

    Agree with the post except the last bit. I don't think a 17 year old should be commiting suicide just because she failed to qualify once. It is the society and the expectations of the family that is to blame. It is almost like there is no life if you don't become a doctor. Besides she was 17 .She had so many more chances. Plus she has reservation as a dalit. If she scored so well in the school exams, it was just a matter of time and she would have qualified in the next 1-2 chances. I blame the expectations of the family and also not providing the support when she didnot make it this time. Sad loss and RIP .

    Wow...why don't we even retire the number 4 (tests) and number 1 (Odis) batting positions and play only only with 10 men? Some people need to get a life.

    I would like to watch him in a few international matches before forming a more complete opinion. After seeing him in FC, A-tours and the IPL ..... my impression is ..... He is a skillful bowler .... can bowl quick in some spells, hits the deck hard often enough, has a natural outswinger, can seam the ball, has a good bouncer, can bowl yorkers, can reverse the ball ..... has shown wicket-taking ability on two A tours, in practice matches against SA and in FC and List A matches. His issues are .... he may lack stamina and his quicker balls are usually bouncers and yorkers .... he needs to learn to bowl quick good-length balls.

    Isn't it an amazing time to be an Indian fast bowling fan ! We are without our 4 fastest bowlers in this ODI series ..... Umesh, Shami, Aaron,and Ishant ..... and we have 3 other pacers all clocking highest speeds of 145 k to 148 k. We are without 2 of our 3 best ODI pacers in this 4th ODI ..... Shami and Bhuvi ..... and our other 3 pacers are all bowling wonderfully. Cheers to all my fast-bowling-fan friends here !

    How can the finisher end up with lower strike rate than guy who is setting up at no3. Dhoni's meows will be clamouring about his not outs and his avgs. He was given perfect platform to launch but he is done and it is fruitless and foolish to expect him to have same ability this late in his career. Either Dhoni needs to be no 4 or he needs to be kicked out of the team if they think he is not good enough there.They don't think he is good enough at no4 as he is completely struggling to rotate strike. What this Indian team needs is Dhoni and Yuvraj of 2006.BTW not sold on anyone else who played today.

    Not sure how Stokes is ahead of Shakib, who is both one of the Bangles main bowlers as well as batter. Stokes on his best day is a handy 4th bowling option on tests. And hardly ever bowls more than 5 overs in ODIs.
