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.

Fog in Agra doesn't deter tourists

Agra - Despite a foggy Sunday, holiday crowds are swelling in the Taj city ahead of Christmas celebrations.

Agra's main churches -- St Peter's, St Mary's, St George's, Baptist and Methodist -- have all been spruced and lit up.

The night temperature had dipped close to 6 degrees Celsius.

Anticipating a big rush in Agra, the approach to the Taj Mahal from the Yamuna Expressway has been cleared.

Additional forces have been deployed to ensure the smooth flow of traffic, an official said.

The 17th century Taj Mahal monument is India's biggest draw.
