    Section 144 in Bangalore;

    Huge protests in Karnataka after modified court order on Cauvery waterSupreme Court orders Karnataka to release less water, but for more daysKarnataka Chief Minister writes to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Bengaluru: Arson and vandalism was seen on the streets of Bengaluru and on a highway to Mysuru on Monday as anger boiled over on a Supreme Court order that meant that Karnataka would have to release more water from the river Cauvery to neighbor Tamil Nadu. Here are 10 developments in the story: Mobs burnt Tamil Nadu-registered trucks and buses on the roads and vandalized shops in the IT hub. An NDTV team saw about two dozen buses being set on fire at a bus depot around 17 km from Bengaluru. "We will give blood but not Cauvery," screamed slogan shouting protesters. The state's Congress government and the police appeared to be severely challenged by the scale of protests and the damage to public property. Images showed young men turning over an Innova car and wrecking it using rods, and throwing stones at shops. The Supreme Court had earlier said on protests in Karnataka: "Citizens cannot become a law unto themselves." In the evening, large gatherings were banned in Bengaluru as a precaution. Most schools and colleges and some offices were closed early and metro services were briefly stopped. The court had this morning modified an earlier order and said Karnataka has to release less water to Tamil Nadu, but for five more days. Karnataka, which will end up giving more water, urged a review but the court refused. Thousands of policemen, including those in riot gear, spread out across the city to check violence. Karnataka stopped buses from heading to Tamil Nadu and police jeeps were positioned along the border to warn vehicles against entering that state. Protests were also seen in Tamil Nadu. The New Woodlands hotel in Chennai, owned by a Karnataka company, was vandalized by a fringe group that allegedly also threw a petrol bomb and left pamphlets warning of retaliation if Tamils were targeted in Karnataka. Four of 10 attackers have been arrested. Five tourist vehicles from Karnataka, including two buses, were damaged by protesters in Rameswaram in southern Tamil Nadu. Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, in a letter to his Tamil Nadu counterpart Jayalalithaa, urged her to take action against those involved in violence against Kannada speaking people in her state. He also said the attack on a young man in Bengaluru was "blown out of proportion". The man - reported to be Tamil - was attacked and humiliated in Bengaluru on Saturday by a group allegedly over his comments on social media on the Cauvery dispute. In a video of the attack that went viral, the engineering student was slapped and kicked by the men. The police suspect he was attacked after his post on Facebook mocking Kannada actors was widely circulated. Trouble resurfaced in thedecades-old dispute over the Cauvery river, which flows through Karnataka into Tamil Nadu, after the Supreme Court last week asked Karnataka to release 15,000 cusecs of water to its neighbour. Last week, the highway between Bengaluru and Mysuru was blocked by protesters at Mandya, the volatile heartland of the Cauvery basin. Bengaluru was completely paralysed because of a shutdown called by protesters on Friday. http://m.ndtv.com/bangalore-news/cauvery-row-violence-in-karnataka-tamil-nadu-curbs-imposed-in-bengaluru-1457595 Situation is really looking scary at the moment . Bengaluru police has announced Section 144 order from 5 pm today. And half an hour back 30-40 TN registered buses were set at a Bus Depot near Bengaluru by a mob. To put in perspective of the difficulty facing the Bengaluru police there are around 30 lakh Tamil people living in Bengaluru .

    Had no idea so many countries play KABADDI

    Clue is in the name lol Kabaddi is a Tamil name meaning holding of hands .We usually consider it a game originated in olden Tamil culture (not sure how accurate it is tbf).Most village festivals will have Kabaddi tournaments too. It's arguably as popular as cricket in rural Tamil Nadu .

    ICC trying to cut the hand that is feeding them: BCCI

    Huh ? Only top 8 teams has been playing in CT since 2002 .What the hell are u on about ? BCCI is the board that actually stopped two tier system that Manohar actively tried to implement .Basically teams like Bangladesh saved by BCCI from going into oblivion. Associates can't qualify for CT because then there would be no difference between CT and World cup. As for world cup having more teams do u even know which country actually are trying to reduce the no of teams playing the world cup to 10? England .

    ICC trying to cut the hand that is feeding them: BCCI

    Ultimately no point blaming ICC or Manohar It's the fault of Thakur and BCCI who decided to send him despite knowing what Manohar is like. I mean he was actively trying to damage the interests of BCCI when he was BCCi president .And they send him as ICC president allowed him to make it as independent He should have been barred from any cricket related activities once that Nagpur test was over .

    Can u quote me where Jarrod Kimber has mentioned the corruption and conflict of Interest England and ICC are indulging in with the CT ? Or is it not corruption when ECB does it ? Yeah another Aussie/English journo who is pissed off BCCI is looking after the interest of its country instead of bowing to ECB and CA

    ICC trying to cut the hand that is feeding them: BCCI

    It doesn't what happened when Srini was president He has been removed and BCCI is being reformed . But who is reforming ICC? BCCI for once is pointing out the blatant corruption happening in ICC and all the ICC president is trying is to play the victim card and saying his priority is ICC instead of addressing it . How exactly does this make Manohar view fair ? BCCI job is ensuring the Indian interests are secured .It doesn't matter if they assert themost to ensure they get what we feel is correct . But how does that stop the ICC president from addressing this blatant corruption.All he is doing is diverting the issue by blaming BCCI instead of addressing the allegations of corruption and conflict of interest if his real priority is ICC ? And more importantly what has actually BCB contributed to ICC .Have they even raised any of these issues ever ?

    So why isn't Manohar rising voice against that if it about prioritizing the rights of ICC? If it is conflict of interest can u list what steps ICC president taken to stop this blatant corruption ?

    ICC trying to cut the hand that is feeding them: BCCI

    Just answer me this. The budget for the CT to be held in England is allotted by the Financial committee headed by former ECB president Giles Clarke . Is this Conflict of interest or not ? Which other sports allows this ?
