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.

Houston (US) -  Chinese film and TV makers won a number of top prizes at the 45th Houston International Film Festival here on Saturday.

"Three Kingdoms," a Chinese TV series which tells the story of an epic warring era between different kingdoms of a divided ancient China, won the Grand Remi Award at this year's festival.

"Xi'an Horticultural Expo Closing Ceremony" won the Gold Remi Award under the TV and cable category. "My Chinese Acquaintances" snatched the Gold Remi Award for documentaries. Two other Chinese products, "China's Beating Heart" and "25 Words," won a silver and a bronze.
