Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Enna Stephens, brain surgery, tumour, giggling, recovering, damaged, emotions

London - A British girl aged 7 is leaving her family members in stitches with her continuous giggles, which cropped up after she underwent brain surgery to remove a tumour.

Enna Stephens of New Marske, Cleveland, is recovering well from the surgery, which has temporarily damaged the part of her brain that controls expressions of emotion, and now anything amusing sets her off.

Her parents had been warned the surgery could make her feel depressed or angry as patients often suffer short-term personality changes, but in Enna’s case, it became one big laugh.

"Enna would giggle for 15 minutes at a time, constantly through the day. When she first came round after the operation she was giggling," the Sun quoted Vana, Enna’s mother as saying.

"One time her grandma held a banana like a phone to make her laugh and she was in stitches for ages. She kept giggling all the time. It was so lovely to hear after all she had been through.

"She still laughs and giggles a lot and once she starts she can’t stop. We take her to hospital visits and she bursts into hysterics," Vana, a police research officer, added.
