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.

Shimla -  A 55-year-old woman, who tested positive for swine flu, died in Shimla Saturday, the first death in Himachal Pradesh this year, a health official said.

"The victim, a resident of Sarkaghat town in Mandi district, died in the Indira Gandhi Medical College and Hospital in Shimla. She had tested positive Wednesday," state surveillance officer Omesh Bharti told IANS.

He said the woman was in the hospital for the past five days. She was admitted here with high fever and chest congestion.

Bharti said the state surveillance unit has already sounded an alert in the state in the wake of the swine flu death.

He said it was the only swine flu case detected in the state so far this year.

"We sent a team of doctors to the victim’s hometown soon after she tested positive and her family was given prophylactic treatment," added Bharti.
