Powered by Firework Master-blaster Sachin Tendulkar still shares a wonderful camaraderie with his former colleagues, as it was witnessed in a recent social media post from former Indian captain and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly. Sachin, who is also known for his sharp humour, replied to Ganguly’s Instagram post which amused his fans all around the globe.Advertisement Picture Credit: FirstpostLast week, Ganguly posted a photo of himself on social media, captioning: “A good fitness session in a cold morning is very freshning….” to which Tendulkar replied, “Well done Dadi! Kya Baat hai.”Meanwhile, Dada appreciated this comment from his dependable batsman, replying: “@sachintendulkar… thank you champion… always was a fitness freak…. u remember the great training days?”And Sachin took no time to reply back with a hilarious banter which read: “Ye Dadi.. We all know how much you enjoyed the training! Especially ‘Skipping’.”In the late 90s and early 2000s, the phenomenal pair of Sachin and Sourav took the world by storm which is even to this day an adorable memory for the Indian fans. The duo used to open for the Men in Blues and together scored over 20 centuries, the highest by an opening pair in ODI cricket.Their lethal partnership was a headache for the opponents and it also laid the foundation of a formidable Indian batting line up. Together Tendulkar and Ganguly hold the record for the most hundred-run partnerships by a pair (26) while also scoring 8227 form 176 innings with a fantastic average of 47.55.In an interview earlier, Sourav was all praise for his partner in crime saying, “These were the moments of my career I always cherish. My batting with Sachin in one-day internationals at the top was a huge learning experience.”Sachin, on the other hand, also cherished those charming days and said, “We had terrific partnerships. there were tough moments too in the middle when we discussed how and what to do to get out of the tight situations”Nostalgia much? Yeah we’re doing the same too.You may also like:Ravi Shastri: Feud against Sourav Ganguly is only ‘chaat and Bhelpuri with mirch and masala’ for mediaSourav Ganguly to talk to Kohli, Shastri about India’s weakness in batting first in T20s Advertisementlast_img read more

Sea Bright Mayor Steps Down After 18 Years of Public Service

first_imgOutgoing Sea Bright Mayor Maria Fernandes is proud of her 18 years of service to the borough and numbers among her accomplishments securing a $1.5 million grant for the rehabilitation of the borough’s sewer infrastructure and helping to secure $1 million in funding for streetscape enhancements and road repairs.SEA BRIGHT — For 18 years there has been a constant in the borough as Maria Fernandes held forth in her different roles, on the Planning Board, Borough Council and then as mayor for four years. But with the installation of the new mayor, Fernandes is stepping back.Last year, following a series of health problems, Fernandes, 59, decided not to seek re-election as mayor.“When the time came for campaigning,” for the 2011 mayoral race, she explained in an interview with The Two River Times on Wednesday, “I said I would definitely run again. But then I thought maybe it’s time to hang my hat up and let someone else do it.”That someone else, it turned out was fellow Democrat Dina Long, a borough council member, who was elected to the mayoral office in November.Deciding to retire is bittersweet for Fernandes, who acknowledged she had come to really enjoy the nuts and bolts of government work and its final results, which is to help people and solve problems.“I was doing things (based on) what was best for the borough,” she said.Fernandes, who is from Elizabeth, moved to Sea Bright with her family back in 1958, when her parents bought their first of two Ocean Avenue properties. As an adult she worked for a steamship company in Newark, where she was in charge of its international shipping, and later worked as a middle manager for a Holmdel-based dental manufacturing company.Her career in public service began back in 1994 when then-Mayor Charles Rooney asked her first to run for borough council (which she turned down at the time, thinking she had no taste for politics) and then to take a seat on the planning board. She found that she actually liked working on the board. “I always liked helping people and I wanted to explain the process,’ she said of her early days, noting she developed an appreciation for the work of architects and engineers in the process, as well. “You learned a lot of things,” she said.She rarely missed board meetings and went to all of the borough council meetings. She then worked on the council campaign for Democratic candidate Elizabeth Smith. She eventually conceded to Rooney’s request to run for council, winning pretty decisively in 1996.The major issue then was the sewer/sanitary system, as the governing body decided to enact a separate utility and a corresponding bill, much to the outrage of residents, she recalled.As a council member upgrading the sewer system remained a top priority for her.“I guess my mind was in the gutter,” she kidded. But stressed it was and is an important issue for the small beachfront community.She lobbied local Assembly people and helped secure $1.5 million in state grants for the rehabilitation work on the system and pump stations. “That was very fulfilling,” she said of that accomplishment.Later she helped usher in the Downtown Infrastructure Improvement Project, winning about $1 million in grant money, allowing the borough to repave and redo roadway and sidewalks on a number of side streets.Recently, she had been working with U.S. Representative Frank Pallone Jr. (D-NJ) on getting Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funding to replace some bulkheading and pumping equipment to address the long standing flooding problem. “We’ve made very good headway,” she said.“So, I guess I’m glad I had my head in the gutter,” she said.“I was never political. I’m not political now,” she stressed. “I never had any political aspirations.” But in the aftermath of Rooney’s death, she charged, the borough council became so mired in partisan bickering it was at a stalemate.“What always bothered me was the time wasted on politics.” So, she decided to run for mayor, winning the office.“I think name recognition is good,” and may have contributed to her victory then. But more importantly for the voters, she suspected, “I was a working council member.”Looking back on her time in office, Fernandes conceded that she would have like to have made greater strides in the per pupil cost borough property owners have been saddled with over the years to send local students out of district for schooling, long a bane to local taxpayers and officials (costing upwards of more than $90,000 per year, per student). “I wish we had the opportunity to sit down with the commissioner [of education] or the governor himself,” she said. “But we did make inroads.”She has been responsive to the needs of her constituents, helping where she can or finding out where help can be obtained. “I am not shy about getting back to everybody,” she said.Last year, Fernandes suffered a mild stroke, affecting her speech and movement on her right side. She also had her right leg amputated due to circulatory problems, which led to her decision to retire.But it may not be the last voters hear from her, she hinted. “These challenges have a way of winding up in my lap,” she said, with a smile.“I may look to come back to the council. You never know.”last_img read more

No press freedom during Chamling’s 25-year rule, alleges Golay

first_imgSikkim Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang aka Golay, on Monday, said that his predecessor Pawan Kumar Chamling was muzzling the press during his 25 year-long rule in the Himalayan state.However, the situation will change under the new Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) government, he said, at the 17th Foundation Day function of the Press Club of Sikkim.Golay announced the constitution of a Media Welfare Board to look into all areas for development of journalism in Sikkim and promised to construct a new Press Club building in the state capital.“The 25 years of Chamling’ autocratic rule in Sikkim was a nightmarish experience for the press fraternity in Sikkim as they were prevented from writing about the misdeeds of the Sikkim Democratic Front government,” Golay claimed.Some journalists were even physically attacked during the previous regime, the SKM chief alleged.“Chamling also diverted several crores of rupees meant for the development of media in Sikkim by publishing books and publicity materials to bolster his own image,” the chief minister said.Efforts to get the reaction of the SDF on the allegations failed.The SDF, which ruled Sikkim for nearly 25 years, is now left with just one MLA – Chamling himself – who has also been the party supremo since its formation 26 years ago.In August, 10 SDF MLAs joined the BJP while two other legislators of the party switched over to the ruling SKM.last_img read more

10 months agoKompany hails Man City triumph: We’re at our best playing on emotion

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Kompany hails Man City triumph: We’re at our best playing on emotionby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City’s defenders were buzzing after victory over Liverpool on Thursday night.Leroy Sane produced the decisive moment 18 minutes from time as he collected Raheem Sterling’s pass to fire across Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson, after it seemed like Roberto Firmino’s stooping 64th-minute header would maintain the visitors’ unbeaten sequence.Sergio Aguero had given City the lead with a rising near-post drive just before the interval, this coming after an earlier moment of drama when Sadio Mane hit the post and John Stones scrambled the ball off the line after his clearance struck goalkeeper Ederson – with data subsequently showing the ball had failed to cross by just 1.12cm.On his clearance, Stones beamed: “I tried to take everything, I spotted the opportunity and I heard it was tight. I’m just happy it didn’t go over the line! Those sort of things can change a game.”Skipper Vincent Kompany also stated: “I’m not worried about the result I’m buzzing with the tremendous performance. We went toe to toe with a very aggressive team and we matched them. It’s still in Liverpool’s hands. It came from our guts, a desire you can’t describe. We are a better team when we play with emotions.” last_img read more
