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.

Abramovich to check views from neighbours' flats to avoid peep-in

Tuesday - Feb 21, 2012, 06:46pm (GMT+5.5)
[+] Text [-]

London -  Roman Abramovich, who splashed out 25 million pounds on a Chelsea mansion for his girlfriend Dasha Zhukova, apparently forgot to take measures to stop neighbours from  peering down and ogling at her in the magnificent property on Cheyne Walk.

However, the Chelsea FC owner is now taking unprecedented steps to establish the privacy of the delightful 30-year-old, the mother of his two-year-old son, Aaron.

Astonishingly, residents of a nearby block of flats overlooking the house — they include ‘Wuthering Heights’ and ‘Brideshead Revisited’ producer Robert Bernstein — have been asked if  the oligarch’s representatives can visit their flats to inspect the view from their windows.

Abramovich’s extraordinary approach has incensed several of the occupants of the mansion block.

As he lavishes further millions on the redevelopment of the Thamesside house, Mick Jagger has the house next door, he has instructed Cambridge-based property consultants Bidwells to  approach Dasha’s neighbours requesting access.

Attaching a photograph with the windows of offending flats ringed ominously in red, the owners have received letters.

“I am writing on behalf of the owner of a property on Cheyne Walk which shares a boundary with the above block of flats,” the Daily Mail quoted the letter as saying.

“The purpose of my approach is to request access to the flats to which the windows, as indicated, belong. The windows look directly over my client’s property and we would like to  understand the vista from these locations?” it said.

Predictably, there has been a furious reaction.

“I for one am furious and so is my next-door neighbour. We have all received these letters with this photograph, which looks as if our flats are potential snipers’ targets, with our windows  marked in red,” one irate resident, said.

“I resent the idea that we are being perceived as possible peeping Toms. It certainly wouldn’t cross our minds in a million years to do so,” the resident added.
