There are secret reports from various sources that lot of politics and favoritism is being exercised in the trials and subsequent selection of Ranji Trophy cricket players for its Uttarakhand’s cricket team, being held at Dehradun . It’s nothing new that there is usually a lot of red tapism and corruption in the selection processes in cricket at the district, state and national levels and the formula of setting, getting is ultimately applied.

At majority of the districts and state level selections this is usually applicable as those having influential connections try to ensure the selection of their candidates thus surpassing the real and competetive players especially hailing from poor or moderate socio economic background.

In Dehradun, Uttarakhand, the same thing seems to be happening with the deserving n budding aspirants with merit are being allegedly sidelined and those incompetent considered.

Though the process of trial is still on for the Uttarakhand’s Ranji Trophy team but the highly deserving with no political support still feel apprehensive of being left out, despite their best performance.

There have been number of complaints that lots of non Uttarakhandi cricket players of other states who could not prove successful in Ranji Teams of other states are now clandestinely using their political influence, clout and sources to have their place in Uttarakhand Ranji Trophy team thus killing the chances of the local Uttarakhandi deserving players.

There have been news in various papers that the domicile certificates of these outsiders ate being allegedly prepared on back dates through various private academies based in Dehradun for 30 to forty thousand rupees so that they can technically claim themselves as Uttarakhand’s citizen.

However, sources reveal that after receiving the complaints the BCCI and Uttarakhand Cricket Cordination Committee would now minutely scrutinise the domicile certificates and other documents of all the entrants.

In view of the preparation of the Uttarakhand Ranji Trophy Team several cricketers who’d left their hometown in Uttarakhand years ago are now returning back for continuous practice and their subsequent selection in the district cricket teams and Ranji Trophy.

Maximum of these cricketeers are under 16 and under 19 playing for other schools and boards outside Uttarakhand earlier.

In the meanwhile the Uttarakhand Sports Minister Arvind Pandey has said that he had also been receiving complaints about alleged favouritism, irregularity and red tapism in the selection process of the state Ranji Trophy team for which trial selection is underway in Dehradun these days. He assured of transparency in the selection process with strong warning to those involved in.this fishi affair. The minister asked the media to expose the irregularity or arbitrariness if any in the selection process of the Uttarakhand Ranji Trophy team so that he can take strict action against those involved in these illegal activity.

Now, as per the short listed names in the list for selection in the final trials if the names of at least first three players like Ajeet Rawat, Hari Singh ot Saurav Chauhan are not chosen in the team it would be crystal clear that justice have not been meted out to them. The chief minister of the state Trivendra Singh Rawat should intervene in the selection process and instruct those involved in this selection to be impartial, honest and fully technical to ensure that who ever is selected gets the opportunity on entirely competetive basis not on favour or political influence. What’s your take friends?

IMRAN BECOMES THE 22ND PAK PM, SIDHU IN REAL TROUBLE

Published

Read Time: 4 minutes

The 22 nd prime minister of Pakistan has finally been sworn in. The former Pakistan skipper who brought World Cup for his country in cricket, twenty two years’ ago, Imran Khan is now a prime minister of Pakistan, having fulfilled his long cherished dream.

Husband of two divorced wives, a daughter with an illegal affair to a woman who died later on, finally with the fourth one, Imran today took the oath of office in Urdu and fulfilled his dream which started with his political journey about twenty years ago, confronting several political upheavels n  challenges from his arch political opponents, the then ruling parties of Pakistan PML-N led by Nawaz Sharief, the former PM now jailed in various serious corruption charges and the Pakistan Peoples’ Party led by late Pakistan PM Benazir Bhutto.

This would be for the first time in the Pakistan’s political and parliamentary history that a cricketer who is a political novice having no administrative experience have assumed office to the highest slot of the country.

Though, the swearing in ceremony was splendid but the Tehrike Insaaf Chief and prime minister Imran Khan has not made it an extravagent or ostentatious affair.

It rather seemed to be a simple affair with no heads of the states, particularly of SAARC nations also not invited nor the prime minister of India Narendra Modi, being the significant head of an immediate neighbour.

Whereas the fact remains that during the swearing in ceremony of prime minister Narendra Modi which took place in the sprawling lawn of Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi in 2014, the Indian prime minister took special care to invite all the heads of the SAARC nations and Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharief especially came to attend the ceremony alongwith other SAARC heads of nations.

But contrary to Modi’s swearing in ceremony in New Delhi, in fact, there were only four invitations from Imran Khan for the Indian side and all the invitees were his old cricket friends, former skippers and actor viz. Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Deo, Navjyot Singh Siddhu and Amir Khan.

However, former Indian Skipper Sunil Gavaskar outrightly refused to attend the ceremony quoting reasons of his already fixed England trip in connection with the test series but extended his all good wishes.

Kapil and Amir perhaps have also not gone to Pakistan, may be due to the misadventures of the neighbouring country in Kashmir and LOC and killings of innocents. They probably did’nt want to invite the ire of their supporters and fans by attending the ceremony?

Eminent cricketer, orator and the minister in Congress government in Punjab and former MP, a close friend of PAK PM as well, Navjyot Singh Sindhu however honoured the invitation of a friend of cricketing fraternity and attended the swearing in ceremony in Islamabad after having been accorded due permission from the India Home Ministry.

But Sidhu is now in a terrible situation. He is being castigated by Indian media for his high spirited happy mode hugging extented to the Pakistan Army chief General Bajwa in the swearing in ceremony.

The entire Television channels of the country are prominently showing Navjyot Singh Sidhu shaking hands and hugging the Pak Army chief in the oath taking ceremony repeatedly, thus making Indians annoyed, angered and furious against the former cricketer, with demonstrations having already started in some parts of the country.

The people of India consider Genl Bajwa as a chief culprit for breaching cease fire on LOC and killing innocents inJammu n Kashmir and also sponsering terrorists creating HAVOC in strife torn Kashmir and various other parts of the country.

It may be recalled that there are already charges that the present government of Imran Khan has arrived to power in Pakistan with the open support of the Pak Army and the ISI and the elections were rigged majorly.

The chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat has tweeted that the entire expences of the treatment of the budding and promising athelete hailing from Chiliyanaula village of Almora, Uttarakhand namely Garima Joshi will be borne by the state government.

Thanks to his ambivalent gesture, indeed, to have reacted so proactively. Garima Joshi who’d gone to Bangalore to participate in the 10 kilometre national race championships and sought 6th position, nationally met with a serious car accident having broken her spinal cord. Garima had received Rs. 25 thousand from the CM’s fund to cover the expenses of her Bangalore trip.

After the severe accident she was operated in a private hospital of theSouther state with 16 rod implants to her spinal cord etc. Her lower body portion got paralysed. Her father is a BPL ration card holder and unemployed whereas her mother is addmitted in Delhi’s Safdarjung hospital suffering from acute cancer.

The financial position of the family is in total jeopardy and her father had to seek Rs. fivelakh financial help from money lenders at the whopping interest rate of 10%. The RTI activist of Haldwani Gurvinder Singh Chadda and the newsviewsnetwork had published the detailed news and made it viral even planting it in the twitter handle of the chief minister Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat.

The social media thereafter made it viral. We are happy now that the plight has finally come to the notice of the chief minister and he’d agreed to bear the entire expenses of the budding racer Garima Joshi.

There had been earlier occassions as well when the chief minister have financially helped people of Uttarakhand  in their critical illnesses and surgeries. Ganna Bhai a renowned comedian/ actor of Uttarakhand was accorded financial assistence by the UK govt in his heart surgery. Several other patients have also been helped but many have also been left out.

SUNIL GAWASKAR REFUSES TO GO TO PAKISTAN, SIDHU TOO PLEASED TO PARTICIPATE IN IMRAN’S OATH TAKING CEREMONY! DEBATES ON

The former skipper of the Indian Cricket team Sunil Gavaskar has refused to attend the swearing in ceremony of his old friend, the former Pakistan Cricket Captain and the twenty first prime minister elect of Pakistan to be sworn in at Islamabad on 18th August.

The reason given by him was his pre occupation in the test matches as a commentator on 18th in England. Sunil Gavaskar’s denial to attend this historic swearing in of Imran Khan in Pakistan is being highly appreciated and lauded by one and all in India especially the saffron party and the present political dispensation at the centre and about twenty states of the country.

Though the reason given by the former skipper of the Indian team is quite genuine and true as Sunil Gawaskar would be in England on 18th of August due to his being the commentator in the India versus England test series starting on 18th till 22nd August political analysts say that by refusing to accept the invitation of the the Pakistan’s prime minister elect’s swearing in ceremony Gawaskar has also given a huge rebuff to the enemy country and its anti India policies thus winning the hearts of billions of Indians around the globe.

Since it was the invitation from a friend ex captain of Pakistan cricket team to the former Indian skipper on extremely personal terms, Sunil Gavaskar could have easily obliged the former by cancelling his trip to England but he did’ nt do so proving himself to be a true nationalist in the language of the saffron party that rules the country at the centre and in over twenty states of the country.

Meanwhile the former Indian batsman, MP and now minister in the Congress government of Punjab has created a furore by saying that if allowed he will be extremely pleased to attend the swearing in ceremony of the former Pakistan skipper and the PM elect Imran Khan’s swearing ceremony in Islamabad, Pakistan to usher in a new chapter offriendship between the two neighbouring countries always at loggerheads.

On being questioned by journalists about his intention to visit Pakistan after the former Indian skipper Sunil Gawaskar refused to oblige Imran Khan, Navjyot Singh Sidhu said that he would love to go to Pakistan, if permitted as this would usher in opening the doors for a renewed friendship between the warring nations who are at loggerheads for a long time. Sidhu even gave Imran Khan a certificate terming him a man of character to the utter dismay, surprise and shock of all.

There had also been reports that the Indian Ambassador to Pakistan would be presenting a cricket bat to Imran Khan as a diplomatic goodwill gesture for reopening of the friendship dialogues between both the nations who could not see each other eye to eye since long with incessant killings going on in the Indo Pak border and Kashmir at the behest of Pakistan Army and the ISI since long.

The refusal of Sunil Gavaskar and the interest of Navjyot Singh Siddhu to attend the swearing in ofTehrike Insaaf chief Imran Khan has opened serious debates in various television channels of the country with some appreciating Sidhu’s move as a purely friendly gesture while his antagonists terming it as an initiative to supportthe India’s hardened enemy nation and its prime minister.

However, the another Indian skipper Kapil Dev and Bollywood actor Amir Khan have not yet issued any statement in this context whether they intend to go to Pakistan on 18th August in Imran Khan’s swearing in ceremony or not.

It may be recalled that the Tehrike Insaf chief and former Pakistan skipper Imran Khan who had been extremely critical of India during the entire election campaign to beget votes had after scoring the victory over his immediate political rivals like PML-N and PPP has said in the media interviews that he is looking forward for the better friendly relations with neighbouring India and if India puts one step forward his government will come out with two steps forward sunce he has lots of friends in India especially in the cricketing fraternity.

He even said that the Indian media has made him the villain of Bollywoofd for no reason. But on Kashmir issue he never relented and said that its the core issue of Pakistan where human rights violations have become the order of the day. He extented four specific invitations for his swearing in to his Indian crickter friends viz. Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Navjyot Singh Sidhu ( all cricketers) and  Bollywood actor Amir Khan.

Destiny is unpredictable. Sometimes it gives you tremendous successes and you feel yourself on the top of the world but then all of a sidden, something so adverse happens that you feel as is everything is finished. Things take a topsy tervy turn for the worst and then one have no option but to pray the Almighty for a new lease of life.

This is exactly what has happened with a young and highly promising athelete from Dwarhat, Uttarakhand with umpteen number of medals in atheletics, the popular young UDAN PARI of Uttarakhand Garima Joshi who had just started acknowledging tremendous popularity through her exemplary performance in national atheletics championships in various national competitions.

Winner of good number of medals in race competitions Garima stood sixth in the 10 kilometre national race championships in Bangalore held between 27th to 18th May for which the Uttarakhand chief minister had sanctioned her a financial aid of Rs. 25000.

Hailing from a lower middle class family with scarce resources, hard lucked Garima met with a critical car accident in Bengalore after the completion of the championship.

She was extremely unfortunate to get her spinal chord  broken  during the accident and had to be operated in the Bengalore hospital where she was addmitted after the severe spinal chord injury. As a result she became completely handicapped with her lower body portion having been paralysed.

This star performer is today addmitted in the Kasturba Manipal hospital in Bengaluru in a critical condition struggling for her survival.

Garima’s unemployed father Puran Joshi was compelled to take Rs five lakh loan in lieu of his house and Land being mortgaged on the 10% interest rate from private money lenders for the surgery of the spinal chord of her severely injured daughter.

As a result her lower portion of the body has been paralysed after 18 rods were implanted in the damaged spinal chord of Garima.

While the elder brother of Garima  is taking care of her at the Bengalore hospital, her distressed father Puran Joshi is taking care of her mother suffering from cancer at Safdarjung hospital, New Delhi.

Her BPL ration card carrying  father has no source of income while Garima’s 18 year old brother is a uitility worker in a small restaurant in Mumbai.

The entire family is in immense financial jeopardy with Garima having been paralysed and mother suffering from dreaded cancer at Safdarjung Hospital.

The poor family has not received any financial help from the Union government, Uttarakhand government or the Sports Federation of India despite their being under the BPL catagory thus entitled for free treatment and monetery assistence from the government.

It would be in the fitness of the things if one and all support this poor and hapless family by contributing whole heartedly in the following bank account to enable Garima bear the expenses of the hospital and ensure her and the family’s survival.

Uttarakhand Journalists Forum requests all the donors to show their ooen heart and contribute generously. To feel convinced about the transparency of the case you can also talk to her father or the Haldwani based social and RTI activis Gurvinder Singh Chadda on the following numbers.

Far Cry 5

Read Time: 3 minutes

The latest in Ubisoft’s open-world Far Cry series, set in modern-day Montana. Far Cry has always gone to exotic locations, but this game is set in the heart of the USA – if the teasers are to be believed. It takes place in modern times too, which isn’t all that unusual, but that does mean you’ll be fighting against some politically sensitive groups. Home-grown terrorists? Isolationists? Gangs gone rogue? The setting and time period are likely to land this game in the midst of real-world political tensions, which could make it one of the most talked-about games of the year. Expect a full reveal, real soon.

Ubi’s latest take on Far Cry 5 brings its familiar open world town liberating to the USA. There are cults to kill, towns to save and, while you might think it looks a bit like the previous games, there’s loads of new little details you might have missed. The latest of all in the game is Boomer is immediately the best video game dog. The goodest of good boys. He snuffles in the grass, barks at distant cows and, when you press the ‘pet’ button, jumps up into your face, basically licking the camera with excitement. I press the ‘pet’ button a lot. Sure, I’m meant to be rescuing the town from extremist cultists currently executing people with a baseball bat right now, but… priorities. The other thing Boomer’s good at is tearing out throats, something I order him to do when I finally attack. As he creeps around a car to take down a periphery guard pointed out to him, I open fire from a flanking position when soldiers run in to investigate. It’s almost unfair – as the dog causes panic, one torn throat at a time, I bounce from truck yard to garden, vaulting picket fences and rattling gunfire off at the bad guys.

Boomer also tags enemies as he moves about, meaning I just follow his lead and in minutes it’s all over. There was a lot of discussion with other people, post hands on, about whether ‘it just felt like another Far Cry.’ It does, but it also nails what the series does so well: problem solving, reactionary gunfights that unfold as enemies and situations present themselves. I just sort of tumbled from one encounter to the next until it was over, loving every minute of it. And it’s that world, with the new game play that shakes up what could otherwise feel familiar. Animal attacks, random patrol encounters, and more all feel very Far Cry, but vaulting a chain link fence and slamming into cover behind a dumpster near a dive bar is quite an eye opener for the series. There’s no strange island or Nepalese mountains this time. Those more exotic locational twists are replaced by neon signs for domestic beer, grocery store fronts and rolling fields that conjure up images of a hardworking Joe in a plaid shirt taking off a baseball cap to wipe his brow. Every time you look around there’s something closer to home that stops you for a second when you realise. However the release date is sanctioned on 27th of February 2018.

PS4’s first Gran Turismo, with the real driving simulator starting to focus on eSports.

Sony’s premier racing series is finally coming to PS4, and competition is at its core. The FiA is officially ratifying its online championship, which is a first for both gaming and motorsport, which means Gran Turismo is essentially becoming a recognised motorsport. Yes, that is a very big deal. GT Sport is currently in Beta and will also support PlayStation VR, which means this is likely to be the most authentic racer experience yet seen.

A cut-down version of Gran Turismo Sport has been made available as a Closed Beta. Available to a select group of gamers, it lets Sony test the game’s defining aspect – its online racing. Offering three race events at set times every day, it’s a taster of what the full game will bring when it launches at some point later this year.

GT Sport was first shown off a year ago, and it looked like a slightly shinier (but also less slick in terms of frame rate) version of Gran Turismo 6. But all that’s in the past. GT Sport is absolutely gorgeous. The game moves at 60fps unless you’ve got ten cars on the screen in which case it drops the occasional frame. Replays move at 30fps, which is fine, since they have extra effects on them to make them look gorgeous. While the trees can look a little flat, and in-car views a little sterile, the overall look is wonderful. The lighting, in particular, is a massive step forward, and the quality of the glare when you face the sun in cockpit view is just magnificent. When you start the game, you’re given a variety of control options, and some of them are retrotastic. If you remember the days of the original Gran Turismo on PSone, you’ll be pleased (or at least tickled) to see there’s an option for digital steering input via the d-pad. But that’s not all! Fans of Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec who lamented the DualShock 2’s lack of analogue triggers will likely have done their accelerating and braking via the right analog stick. That option’s available here too. But don’t worry, ‘normal’ controls with the left stick and triggers are the default. The ‘Sport’ mode is the only one available to play in the Beta, and it features three races: A, B and C, which each have a clearly visible set start time in real world timing. But you can’t just enter them; you need to qualify for them first, using the FIA’s usual 108% rule to make sure everyone on the grid is at least semi-competitive. You can set as many qualifying laps as you like before the race. You’ll get a countdown to matchmaking beginning, and you’re taken out of the game when that happens. You do need to remember to enter the race after qualifying though, it won’t enter you for anything unless you say so. After matchmaking, everyone is let loose from the pits onto the track for a warm-up, before the race proper begins. The upshot of all this is that you spend most of your time on the track, not in menus and lobbies. The progression of play works superbly.

This absolute thrilling Racing game is expected to be released on October 17,2017.

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds DLC

Read Time: 2 minutes

The first DLC for Guerrilla’s masterpiece in a post-post apocalyptic world inhabited by various tribes – and robots. Lots of robots.  For a start, in the trailer Aloy was in her insanely strong Shieldweaver armour, which negates a vast chunk of damage from even a Thunderjaw’s stomp. That seems to imply that the DLC could introduce a New Game+ mode with extra difficulty, especially as the Banuk chief – the most mystical of Horizon’s tribes – mentions the ‘glory of the hunt’. Speaking of, there’s also a new beast lurking in the smoke. It guards the Mountain that Aloy’s looking to delve into, and is possibly a bear or gorilla, judging from the trailer. Whatever it is, make sure Aloy is stocked up on arrows. She’s gonna need them.Lurking in E3’s The Frozen Wilds trailer are hints that Yellowstone National Park is the home of a new type of robot – perhaps even especially made for a New Game+ mode.There’s a roaring in the distance. Trees are trembling. Billowing smoke swirls around the tip of the Mountain, electricity crackling through it. Deep inside is a secret – one that you’re going to help Aloy uncover. November 7th 2017 will see the release of Horizon Zero Dawn’s first DLC, which sends the flame-haired Seeker, hunter, and unstoppable force of nature to what looks like Ban-Ur, the homeland of the mystical Banuk tribe. She’s heard of some kind of mystery that waits inside the Mountain, and although the trailer is barely 2 minutes long, we’ve gleaned some key details from it. Forget all the words, and take away just these two: Yellowstone. Bear. Ahem – or maybe that should be ‘gorilla’. The arguments for either animal are convincing to say the least…

Most of the details you can guess: there’s a new map, new weapons, and new settlements. 10 hours of hunting in the lush post-post apocalyptic world awaits, with Guerrilla’s Managing Director Hermen Hulst calling the DLC “very substantial”.

Release date: October 7, 2017
