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.

Bihar is 100 years old

Patna -  Bihar turned 100 years old Thursday, with the government declaring a holiday to mark the start of three days of celebrations.

It was on this day when the British carved out the state from Bengal Presidency in 1912.

Termed Bihar Diwas, the government has decorated the state capital, including all government buildings, with blue lights. The Gandhi Maidan here is ready to host the event.

A brainchild of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Bihar Divas was first celebrated in 2010.

"We must celebrate our glorious past and gear up to revive it," Nitish Kumar said in a message.
