Bleaguered England Cricket aim to get back to past glories

The English cricket team has endured a tumultuous few months. Ever since Mitchell Johnson steamed in at the Gabba and destroyed the English top order in that fateful morning in the first Ashes test, something hasn’t been quite right with them. Just wColin Graveshen it looked like the scars of the Ashes had healed with a thumping victory over India at home, a disastrous world cup showed English cricket in grim light again. The change at the helm of the ECB hasn’t helped either. The incoming chairman Colin Graves has openly contradicted the previous stance that Kevin Pietersen would not be considered for selection. This has led to Pietersen cancelling his IPL contract and rejoin Surrey in a bid to regain his place in the English team. Quite what will happen if Pietersen’s batting starts demanding selection, only time will tell. The undoubted friction that comes with him returning to a side captained by Alastair Cook won’t help matters either. It is believed that Cook played a key part in Pietersen’s sacking after the Ashes. The problem arises due to the fact that Cook has not been among the runs for over a year now and fans are clamouring for the inclusion of Pietersen even if it meant Cook being out of the side. It is quite a pity that it has come to this, as both batsmen sit atop the list of highest ever run scorers for England in tests. read more

The weekend in the Barclays Premier League

This particular weekend in England made for a hugely entertaining one, with some of the results surprising in their very being. Here is a lowdown of how exactly things unfolded this weekend in the BPL. read more

Carbo-loading

Carbo-loading: Myth or Reality?

I’ve been around athletes for a while. I even work with one at the same company. And before any competition, this coworker of mine ingested large amounts of carbohydrates. I asked him why and he explained, when taking part in endurance competitions, athletes need to maximize the storage of glycogen in their muscles. When they put their body to work for over 90 minutes, they need all the energy they can get. So athletes consume large amounts of carbs to make sure they don’t run out of fuel. Sounds easy enough, doesn’t it? In fact, it’s not that simple. read more

Yoga for Health not Politics

Adding on to his list of “important-days” to the Indian calendar, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced June 21st to be International Yoga Day. Initially proposed by Mr.Modi in his speech at UN General Assembly; the day has been officially recognized by UN on December 11, 2014.
It is definitely a refreshing proposal from our dynamic Prime Minister because in the race of life and catching up with Western countries; we have forgotten the better existing Indian alternatives. With many developed nations and western celebrities finding solace in Yoga, we in India are running on tread mills and signing up for gyms.International-Yoga-Day-21-June-PM-Narendra-Modi
“Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.”
These were Mr.Modi’s words which concisely presented the idea to the world leaders at UN General Assembly.
It is commendable of our PM to vouch for Indian culture and praise our traditions wherever given a platform. It is known that only when we realize our own traits and identity, and use it as our strength; even others will show us respect. PM’s propaganda of welcoming foreigners to India by publicizing our traditions is worth praise because he truly believes that the world should respect India for its rich culture and heritage.
The whole picture becomes very shady and tainted when you wish to look at it more critically, and politically.
The Indian culture and traditions apparently belong to the age before India was invaded by Mughals, Persians, Arabs or Europeans. That Indian culture is predominantly Hindu in nature. If to be spoken from a naïve layman point of view; PM Narendra Modi is trying to propagate Hinduism through his office and position of power.
But we all are not naïve. Neither are most of the Indian citizens.
They might not understand the concept when people say Hindutva is not a religion, but it is a way of life. But they surely understand that more or less Yoga is just an old form of exercise which is very helpful in leading a healthy life.7-Steps-to-a-Life-Long-Yoga-Practice-Youll-Love
There are politicians all over India trying to make hay in the sunshine of religious battle cry; who are trying to instigate people to abandon Yoga Day as it is insulting their religions.
Thankfully majority of the educated middle class understands the difference between religious ritual and a healthy practice. As an act of appearing liberal and secular the government has even made all Yoga Day activities voluntary for anyone, rather being mandatory for all; unlike the “Swaccha Bharat” campaign which was strictly made a norm.
The BJP government with its vast number of RSS kar-sevaks has organized large number of Yoga Centers all over the nation to be open on June 21st. Pamphlets and materials will be distributed at these centers and a small session of Yoga will also commence to mark the 1st International Yoga Day.
Let’s make International Yoga Day an effort towards healthier Bharat, instead of tainting it with gash of politics.International-Yoga-Day-June-2015 read more

A key to build body like Arnold Schwarzenegger

He believed majorly in having food in its raw form. He considered that natural foods are any day more digestible than cooked food. Back in his body building days Arnold needed 5000 calories per day for his huge frame. read more
