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.

Don't distort language, Bangladesh court tells media

Dhaka -  Radio and television channels have been told by a court not to distort Bangla and other foreign languages in their broadcasts, a media report said.

The Dhaka High Court Thursday directed radio and television channels authorities not to use distorted Bangla or foreign languages in Bangla broadcasts, the Daily Star reported.

The order came following publication of an opionion piece "Bhasha dushon nodi dushoner motoi biddhongshi (language distortion is as devastating as river pollution)" in Bangla daily Prothom Alo.

An experts' committee has been told to find ways to stop distortion of Bangla language in radio and TV programmes. The committee has to submit its recommendations to the court by March 20.

Rakibuddin Ahmed, secretary general of Dhaka University Alumni Association, placed the opinion piece, written by Syed Manzurul Islam, a professor, before the court and sought an order to prevent language distortion.

The court also asked the government why it should not be ordered to take action against those who distort the mother language and to cancel the licences of the radio and TV channels airing such programmes.
