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.

Elephants destroy crops, trample man to death in Jharkhand

Ramgarh (Jharkhand) - A herd of elephants strayed into a village in Jharkhand’s Ramgarh District over the weekend, destroyed crops and trampled a man to death.

Paddy crops spread over 10 hectares was destroyed during the rampage, causing a huge loss to the farming community of the area.

Villagers blamed forest rangers for not being able to prevent the elephants from straying towards human habitation.

Environmentalists and other experts have attributed the rise of such incidents to human encroachment and decreasing forest cover due to which elephants have started venturing more frequently into human inhabited places.

India has over 50 per cent of Asiatic elephants, considered to be among the most intelligent animals. Unfortunately, the number of elephants has dwindled in recent years.
