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.

First swine flu death in Mumbai

Mumbai - Swine flu claimed its first victim in Mumbai as a 23-year-old pregnant woman died in a hospital after she contracted the deadly H1N1 virus, an official said here Friday.

Trushali Divade died Thursday.

“Divade was referred to J.J. hospital Tuesday from Dhule district. She was eight months into her pregnancy. She also suffered from bilateral pneumonia leading to severe respiratory distress,” hospital Dean T.P. Lahane told IANS.

Divade, who went into labour Wednesday, suffered an intra-uterine foetal demise, leading to a stillbirth, a doctor said.

Reports confirming that she had contracted the H1N1 virus came only after she died, a doctor said.

The number of swine flu cases in the city rose to 14 Thursday, since March, after a 28-year-old woman from Andheri and a 37-year-old man from Sewri tested positive for H1N1.

According to health officials, in 2009-10 and 2010-11, there were over 10,000 positive cases of H1N1 registered in India.

So far, 392 cases of swine flu have been recorded in Maharashtra. Out of these patients, 15 have died.
