Veterans like Sehwag and Yuvi omitted from 2015 WC probables
Four veterans -- Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh – were omitted from India's World Cup 30-member probables list which includes young spinners Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav.

Another seasoned cricketer Gautam Gambhir has also been left out with the selectors reposing faith on the young guns to retain the title in Australia and New Zealand. 

The decision to ignore the veteran players, who were a part of the 2011 World Cup winning team along with Sehwag, Yuvraj and Gambhir, has put a question mark on their future given that none of the five have featured in an ODI for the last one year. 

Apart from the famed five, pacers Ashish Nehra and Munaf Patel, spinner Piyush Chawla and all-rounder Yusuf Pathan were also among the players axed from the list announced by BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel after a meeting of the selection committee in Mumbai on Thursday. 

Apart from Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav, Jammu and Kashmir all-rounder Parveez Rasool and batting duo of Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav benefitted from the overhaul, riding on their consistent performance in the domestic circuit. 

With the selectors opting to ignore seniors, there were no major surprises on offer in the list of probables. 

The selectors included all-rounder Stuart Binny and in-form batsman Manoj Tiwary and young wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson in the list which would be further pruned to 15 on January 7, five weeks ahead of the World Cup starting 14th February. 

Eleven players from the 2011 World Cup-winning squad will not be seen in action when the team goes Down Under to defend the trophy. 

While most of them have been ignored for poor form, Sachin Tendulkar has retired and pacer S Sreesanth has been banned for spot-fixing. Of all the players ignored, Yuvraj's journey has been the most dramatic. 

The left-handed batsman was named Player of the Tournament for his fantastic run in the 2011 World Cup but his career took a hit after he had to undergo treatment for rare form of germ cell cancer between his lungs. 

His attempts at a comeback were not too successful and he was eventually pushed to the sidelines. 

Of the selected players, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja picked themselves after delivering consistently. 

Among the bowlers, pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaron, Dhawal Kulkarni, Mohit Sharma and Ashoke Dinda got the selectors' nod by virtue of their fine performances in both the international and domestic circuit. 

Apart from Dhoni, the list has two wicketkeepers in Wriddhiman Saha and young Sanju Samson, who has also impressed with his batting in the domestic arena. 

Cheteshwar Pujara, who is regarded a Test specialist, Pragyan Ojha, Dinesh Karthik and Naman Ojha were among the other notable omissions. 

Murali Vijay, Ambati Rayudu and Robin Uthappa, who have been in and out of the national squad in recent times have also found a place in the probables list. 

India World Cup probables: 

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Robin Uthappa, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Manoj Tiwary, Manish Pandey, Wriddhiman Saha, Sanju Samson, R Ashwin, Parveez Rasool, Karn Sharma, Amit Mishra, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaron, Dhawal Kulkarni, Stuart Binny, Mohit Sharma, Ashoke Dinda, Kuldeep Yadav and Murali Vijay.

at 3.00 pm on Monday, 15th December, 2014

in the Common Room, Annexe Building


*‘Peasants, Spies and Stolen Harvests:*

*The making of the Northeast India East Pakistan border, 1930-1970’*


*Dr. Malini Sur,*

National University of Singapore,



In this talk, the speaker engages with overlapping and contested claims
over land and rice along South Asia’s northeastern borderlands. She shows
how the conversion of agricultural land into provincial and national
territories, and religious and political mobilizations that defined
affiliations and citizenship, altered prior conceptions of locality and
belonging. The entangled histories of two peasant and border communities
who may be broadly described as Muslim cultivators of Bengali origin and
the mostly Christian Garos tells the story of rice wars along the
edges of colonial
Assam and eastern Bengal. These provincial margins were fought over,
redrawn and mapped to form the post-colonial borders of Northeast India and
East Pakistan (1930-1970). As intersecting projects surrounding land came
to mark borders, evicted and displaced peasants not only lost but also
acquired each other’s land and rice harvests. Combining a close reading of
late colonial and early post-colonial archives with ethnographic fieldwork,
the speaker shows how the politically charged semantics of rice complicates
the romantic pastoral of land loss, disrupts the “citizen-refugee” analytic
that South Asia’s partition historiography has privileged and connects
disparate histories of migration and settlement.


Dr. Malini Sur is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Asia Research Institute,
National University of Singapore. Her research interests connect three
broad areas—borders, mobility, and citizenship—with a focus on South Asia.
She has lectured at the University of Amsterdam, held a writing fellowship
at the University of Toronto and worked for Social Science Research Council

Objectives of the YAMAHA ASEAN CUP RACE
The ASEAN region represents the most important market for Yamaha Motor’s motorcycle business, where major growth has been achieved through the early introduction of models equipped with automatic transmissions, fuel injection systems, etc. Among the reasons behind this success is Yamaha’s sporty brand image, the sporty designs and performance of the products introduced and the active efforts across the region to promote the spread and development of sports. Since its launch in 2003, the YAMAHA ASEAN CUP RACE motorcycle race event has emerged as a prominent symbol of these efforts, along with the YAMAHA ASEAN CUP U-13 FOOTBALL tournaments. Also, by using production models as the base race machines for this event, Yamaha aims to fulfill its objectives of strengthening the brand image, widely popularizing the race among communities across the region, developing motorcycle sports and contributing to youth development.

Raghuram Rajan NO IDEA of Engineering, Management & Banking

December13, 2014 (C) Ravinder Singh

Indian Economists are so DULL GRADE & Confused that they don’t even
learn from Global Experiences, in Emphasizing MADE FOR INDIA without
support of IPR and FDI still wants Open Economy, Low Taxes on Imports
in some other lines, Don’t Want Subsidies to SMEs but Don’t CUT
Subsidies to Big Companies, Don’t Want to Collect Taxes & Recover
Outstanding Credits & Middlemen Free INDIA.

Three Himalayan Omissions from India Economic Agenda are - 1.
Promoting IPR Based Companies Serving World Market, 2. Export led
Growth, 3. Absence or Neglect of Manufacturing and Weak Push for FDI
in Manufacturing.

It is horrifying first at IGNORANCE of RBI Governors, that in of $76
trillion World GDP and Foreign Trade of Goods alone is $38 trillion
[IPR & Services Addition] –  Yet Raghuram Rajan was absolutely
shocking in persistently Opposing all Three.

91% of EU Exports are IPR based indicates importance of Patents,
Trademarks & Design. India is totally neglecting IPR. World IPR value
alone is $20 Trillion approx.

Service component World GDP exceed 64% or Nearly $50 trillion. India
has no program to serve Global Services Market other than BPO.

Composition of US GDP    Gross World Product
In $ Trillions

2013    74.90
2012    71.83
2010    62.22
2005    43.07
2000    41.01

Global Wealth Data Book 2014
    Wealth 2000    Wealth 2014    Median 2000    Median 2014    Growth    Percent
China    $ 4,664b/ 4%    $21,404b/8.1%    $2703    $7033    $4330    160%
India    $1,163b/ 1%    $3,604b/ 1.4%    $588    $1006    $418    71%
World    $117t    $263.2t    $1740    $3641    $1901    109%

When India could manage to increase Global Wealth Share by 0.4%, China
in comparison captured 4.1% or Ten Fold in 2000-2014 period, similarly
Median Income Per Adult growth was $418 for India against $4330 for
China and $1901 for World Average. Since there is 30% growth in
population real gains are just 0.1% in 14 yrs.

China’s Median Wealth Growth was 133% more than World average Growth
