Vani grabs lead on day 2

Ahmedabad, 13 January 2016: Vani Kapoor fired 4 under 68 in the second round to grab the lead in the second leg of the Hero Women’s Professional Golf Tour at the Kalhaar Blues & Greens here on Wednesday. Trailing by a margin of four strokes in tied second position are Kiran Matharu and Amandeep Drall with a total score of 146. The INR 7,00,000 event will culminate tomorrow.
Hero Order of Merit leader Vani Kapoor started the day at tied second position after playing a birdie-less round yesterday. However, the youngster from Delhi was in supreme form today. She played a bogey-free front nine with two birdies on the 2nd and 3rd holes. She fired four more birdies in the latter half on the 11th, 12th, 13th and 15thholes while dropping just two shots on the 10th and 18th to finish with a total score of 142 after 36 holes.

Overseas player Kiran Matharu carded 1 under 71, only the second sub-par score of the round to jump into tied second position. She started impressively, carding two birdies on the 1st and 3rd holes.  She added another on the 12th hole, but two bogies on the 10thand 11th meant that she had to settle for a tied second place. Panchkula’s Amandeep Drall carded an even par 72 on the day to retain her tied second position. Her round included three birdies on the 2nd, 5thand 13th holes with an equal number of bogies on the 4th, 10th and 18th to finish with a total score of 146 after the second round.
Kapurthala golfer Gursimar Badwal carded 1 over 73 in the second round to take the fourth position with a score of 150. She carded five birdies on the 2nd, 6th, 11th, 13th and 14th holes, while dropping shots on the 10th and 18th along with two double bogies on the 3rd and 15th. Overnight leader Smriti Mehra could not reproduce her form of yesterday, and carded 7 over 79 in the second round. She is tied for the fifth position with Delhi’s Ankita Tiwana with a total score of 152. Following them are Chandigarh’s Saaniya Sharma and Delhi’s Mehar Atwal who are placed seventh and eighth respectively.

Have you ever wondered what’s going on inside your pet’s mind? We’ll find out how a beehive resembles a human brain and whether your dog is really feeling guilty when it gives you that famous “guilty” look.
Do dogs feel guilty? Can rats feel empathy? We project very complex- and human-emotional lives onto our animal companions. Now, scientists studying animal cognition are finally revealing the machinery of animals’ moral compasses.

The team which managed to beat Uttar Pradesh Wizards last year in a third place playoff has made some crucial buys for the 4th edition of the Coal India Hockey India League the premier League for hockey in the world today. The six team annual franchise based hockey league, the flagship event of Hockey India – the apex body governing the sport in the country and sanctioned by the International Hockey Federation (FIH) will see Delhi Waveriders open their account for the 2016 season against last year Runner’s up Jaypee Punjab Warriors at Chandigarh on 20 January 2016.
The team under the guidance of Head Coach Cedric D’ Souza, will look forward to an impressive season this year, acquiring a good set of Indian and overseas players. The Indian players who will be on display for the Delhi Waveriders are young and full of promise. The major Indian retentions which has been made by the Delhi team include star forward Yuvraj Walmiki who has been making a mark for himself in the sport.

Dear Naresh,
My name is Ravi Chellam, and I am excited to meet you in my new role as the Executive Director of Greenpeace India.
I come from a background of wildlife research and conservation and my passions include reading, composting and cricket. I was the highest wicket taker in Tamil Nadu for the first half of the 1984-85 season! If not an environmentalist, I would have definitely been a cricketer!
I have been supporting Greenpeace for a long time. In taking on this new challenge, this is my hope and vision for India’s environment. Please watch the video below to know more.
Naresh, 2016 is a fresh start for all of us. I am proud of our country’s democratic and inclusive values that respect dissent and celebrate diversity. It is these values that form Greenpeace’s mission to campaign for an India that has safe air, water and food as well as flourishing wildlife.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of the Greenpeace journey and wish you a very happy new year.
Looking forward to getting to know you,

Ravi Chellam
