Time for change: Rahul Gandhi

NEW DELHI: Celebrating the Congress’ best performance in assembly elections in a while, its chief Rahul Gandhi today said the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, when his party was reduced to its lowest tally in Parliament ever, was the “best thing” that happened to him, taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, from whom he said he had learnt a vital lesson. “The absolute best thing for me was the 2014 elections...I learnt a lot from that election... I learnt that the most important thing in this country is what the people feel, and as a politician, you have to work with that sentiment,” Gandhi said, adding, “Mr Narendra Modi taught me that lesson. I see (from his actions) what not to do. He was given a massive opportunity to lead the country. He refused to listen to the heartbeat of this country... That is something I have learnt from how he has acted. For me, the best teachers are the people of this country.”...more More

Uzbekistan wins its long fight against malaria

By Deepak Arora

NEW YORK: Uzbekistan’s success in becoming recognized as a malaria-free country by the World Health Organization (WHO), is an “extraordinary outcome,” said the Executive Director of the Global Fund on Tuesday, a UN-backed partnership to end malaria epidemics. Malaria has a long and deadly history in Uzbekistan: in the late nineteenth century, the disease killed nearly 40,000 people in the capital district alone, and in 1943, one tenth of the population was infected. In the post-war years, the Uzbek Government concentrated on eliminating malaria, but the country was hit by a devastating resurgence in the early 1960s....more More

India beat Australia by 31 runs in first Test

ADELAIDE: If there was a way to lose the first Test of the home summer and still exceed expectations, Tim Paine’s side did so in Adelaide. Sure, had they got over the line in their stoic final day run chase, they would be the toast of the nation. This isn’t that. But they do travel to Perth enhanced in belief and reputation, in no small part due to the way they conducted themselves throughout. “It was played in good spirits,” the Australian captain said of the 31-run defeat, that for about half an hour on the final afternoon was building to an epic conclusion before the last wicket fell....more More
