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.

Mumbai - Molly Kurien, wife of milkman late Verghese Kurien passed away here late Friday night, Amul said in an official communication Saturday. She was 81.

She is survived by daughter Nirmala and grandson Sidhartha.

The cremation is likely to take place Saturday evening.

In spite of belonging to the Syrian Christian community, which traditionally buries the dead, sources close to the family said that like her husband, she would be cremated.

On Sep 9, Verghese Kurien, who brought the 'milk revolution' to the country, died in a hospital in Nadiad following prolonged illness at the age of 91.

Kurien had served as head of both National Dairy Development Board and the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation for many decades and was the architect of the White Revolution of the 1970s which catapulted India as among the top milk producers in the world.
