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.

China builds museum on Confucius

Beijing -  China is building a museum to display over 100,000 cultural relics related to ancient philosopher Confucius.

The museum is being built in the eastern Shandong province, Xinhua reported.

Built at a cost of 500 million yuan (around $79 million), the museum located in Confucius' hometown of Qufu will cover over 56,000 square metres. A total of 110,000 pieces of cultural relics and 260,000 archive materials about Confucius will be showcased in the museum, to be completed in three years.

Confucius (551-479 B.C.), an educator and philosopher, founded a school of thought called Confucianism that deeply influenced later generations.

He was also the first Chinese to set up private schools and enroll students from all walks of life.

Confucius' teachings form the foundation of much of subsequent Chinese education of how an individual should live his life and interact with others. The teachings also speak of the forms  of society and government in which an individual should participate.
