    Sonia Gandhi talks to The Hindu on her past, present and future.

    Garry Kasparov, the world's best chess player who is not Indian, calls for the western world to condemn Russian president Vladimir Putin.


    Even as TEN Sports cries foul over Doordarshan's antics during yesterday's India v Pakistan game where DD didnt show TEN's logo and inserted their own advertisements, which TEN Sports claims went against the Court judgement a couple of days ago, I needn't point out where you first read about the possibility of Doordarshan being nasty, it was right here!

    As for the game per se, it was no doubt a real thriller. But I hate it when journalists say that cricket won. Sorry, India did. Yes, the batsmen won. Yes the crowd won. Yes some of the fielding on show was really good (Kaif's catch in particular!) but the bowlers lost. It is totally cruel on that tribe if nearly 700 runs are scored and a team making 350 is nearly defeated. I long for the days of the 1980s-early 1990s when teams were safe if they made around 250 batting first.

    Ramachandra Guha writes a nice piece on unpatriotic acts like passing on tips to opposition bowlers and batsmen.
