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.

New Delhi - A large numbers of Kannada writers, artists and academicians from the national capital on Tuesday celebrated the birth anniversary of the 12th century poet Basavanna, who was a noted mystic and ardent social reformer.

The editor of Dehali Kannadiga, M.B. Samaga, who inaugurated the celebration said, 'Basavanna caused a revolution in Kannada literature both in form and content and raised the common man and the outcaste to divine heights '.

He urged the Central Government to start a train between Hubli and Delhi to be named after Basavanna. Samaga also demanded the Karnataka Government to start a Karnataka Cultural Museum, a common guest house and working women hostel in Delhi in memory of Basavanna.

The celebration was organized by Dehali Kannadiga, a monthly published from Delhi.
