An Indian man has been arrested in Phichit province of Thailand for exceeding the time limit given on his visa and providing loans to people at rates of interest higher than the legal limit set in the country, reported IANS.According to a report in The Nation, Thai immigration police and officials from other agencies arrested 21-year old Rakesh Yadav on Oct.25 from a gas station in Tambon Tha Luang.At the time of the arrest, Yadav was inside the gas station and had come there to allegedly collect interest from vendors who had borrowed from him.The publication quoted the police as saying that Yadav was giving loans at 20 percent interest per day, which is higher than the legal limit in the country. Police also found that Yadav’s visa had expired in February this year and he was overstaying in the country.Police arrested Yadav and seized 3,538 Baht from him. Police also found him carrying a book, which had a list of his debtors.Thai baht is the official currency of Thailand and 1 Thai baht equals Rs. 2.22, as per the exchange rate on Oct.25,2018.Thai immigration department, Trat Province says on its website that if people coming from other countries overstay for a long period, they will be barred from re-entering the country. The period of the ban may vary according to the period of overstay.“If you overstay for a short period you will have to pay a fine. However, if you overstay for more than 90 days then it is a serious offense and the result will be you are deported from Thailand and banned from visiting again. The length of the ban depends on how long you have overstayed your visa,” the website said.In August, Thai law enforcement officials had arrested an Indian man for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl in July 2018 when they met for the first time after chatting online.

World champions India dropped to the fifth position in the Reliance ICC ODI Championship table after England won the five-match ODI series 3-0 at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Friday.It is Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s side’s lowest ranking since October 2008, when it spent three months at the number-five position, to sum up a disappointing summer in England where it slipped from number-one position in the ICC Test Championship to third spot after losing all the four Tests.India had entered the series in third position on 117 ratings points and finished on 112 ratings points after it lost the second, third and fifth ODIs while the first ODI at Chester-le-Street was washed out and the fourth at Lord’s ended in a tie.In fact, India had slipped to fourth position after the third ODI at The Oval where it went down by three wickets (according to Duckworth-Lewis method) and then slipped further behind after defeat in another rain-reduced match in Cardiff.In contrast, England has gained a place and has moved to fourth position. For remaining unbeaten in the series, Alastair Cook’s side earned six ratings points which has left it just one point ahead of India and three behind third-ranked South Africa.However, India will have a chance to not only reclaim lost ground but potentially move into second position depending on how it performs in the five-match ODI series against England which starts at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad Oct 14.But India will also have an eye on the three-match ODI series between South Africa and Australia, which starts at Centurion from Oct 19.advertisement-With IANS inputs

No longer concerned about titles and honors, Novak Djokovic is instead trying to rediscover the inner joy he used to have while playing tennis.And after beating Fabio Fognini 6-3, 6-3 Tuesday in the second round of the Shanghai Masters – his first win following a month-long injury layoff – the top-ranked Serb said he’s closing in on that feeling again.”When I get on the court, of course I want to give my best and eventually try to win the match,” the 12-time Grand Slam champion said. “But not as a priority of must-win type of mindset, because that is not working for me anymore.”I have just a different kind of vision right now.”It’s been a summer of soul-searching for Djokovic, who admitted to being both emotionally and mentally exhausted after finally succeeding in his quest to win the French Open and complete a career Grand Slam.He lost in the third round of Wimbledon and afterward reportedly said he was dealing with personal issues. He then went into the Rio de Janeiro Olympics with high expectations of winning gold only to stumble in the first round against Juan Martin del Potro and exit the tournament in tears.”I really wanted it too much maybe,” Djokovic said.Then came another frustrating loss to Stan Wawrinka in the U.S. Open final and an elbow injury that sidelined him for a month.CHANGE IN MINDSETBack on court again in Shanghai, an upbeat Djokovic said he needed the time off to recharge mentally and put his career goals in better perspective.advertisement”The last three months were up and down a little bit with oscillations, but generally I didn’t find that kind of satisfaction on the court,” he said before the start of the tournament. “I do really feel like I’m already getting better because I changed my mindset. … I think I’m a different person than I was maybe three months ago, maybe six months ago.”Djokovic was rusty in his comeback – double-faulting four times and making 18 unforced errors with only 13 winners – but he had no trouble dispatching an even more erratic Fognini, who racked up 40 unforced errors of his own.Djokovic is aiming to win his fourth title in Shanghai, a tournament where he has a 25-3 record.GOFFIN OUSTS DEL POTROAlso Tuesday, Juan Martin del Potro faded down the stretch against 11th-seeded David Goffin, dropping serve in the 11th game of the third set and losing 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.The Argentine, on his own comeback from a series of career-threatening wrist injuries over the past several years, was trying to maintain the momentum that saw him win the Olympic silver medal and reach the U.S. Open quarterfinals last month.”In the end of the match, I make mistakes with my forehands and in important moments, and I think he took all the chances to win the match,” Del Potro said. “But for me, it has been a great season. (I’m) trying to do a good comeback after many injuries. This is just a match.”Nick Kyrgios, fresh off winning his third title of the year at the Japan Open on Sunday, defeated Sam Querrey 6-4, 6-4.”I was just feeling very tired today. Didn’t have the greatest sleep last night and obviously got in late the day before,” the 12th-seeded Australian said. “It was just tough.”Sixth-seeded Gael Monfils also moved into the third round with a 7-6 (4), 6-3 win over Kevin Anderson, and ninth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga beat Janko Tipsarevic 6-3, 7-6 (6).Two other seeded players fell in the first round, No. 10 David Ferrer and No. 14 Richard Gasquet. Bernard Tomic retired from his match against 15th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut with an abdominal muscle pain while trailing 6-3, 3-0.
RB Leipzig came from behind to edge past Bayer Leverkusen 3-2 thanks to Willi Orban’s winner in a Bundesliga match in Berlin on Friday.Bundesliga newcomers Leipzig move to the top of the standings as Bayer Leverkusen surrendered their lead twice allowing the visitors to grab a comeback win, reports Xinhua. (Bayern Munich drop first points in 1-1 draw with Cologne)The hosts grabbed a fairy tale start on home soil as Kevin Kampl broke the deadlock with only two minutes into the game after poking home Julian Brandt’s square pass at the far post.Leipzig needed less than two minutes to respond as Leverkusen’s Julian Baumgartlinger deflected Emil Forsberg’ s cross into the wrong goal to restore the parity for the visitors in the fourth minute.However, the hosts took a 2-1 lead into the half-time break after Hakan Calhanoglu’s pass allowed Julian Brandt to beat Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi from inside the box in the 45th minute. (Bayern Munich stage fightback, Borussia Dortmund hit six)After the restart, Bayer Leverkusen should have added another goal to their lead but Calhanoglu were unable to overcome Leipzig custodian Gulacsi with a foul play penalty in the 54th minute.Newly-promoted Leipzig punished Leverkusen’s wastefulness in the 66th minute when Forsberg had enough time and space to shock goalkeeper Bernd Leno with a long range effort to level the issue at 2-2.Things went from bad to worse for the ‘Werkself’ as Forsberg’s cross to the far post found Willi Orban, who headed past Leno to complete the comeback win in the 81st minute. (Bellarabi’s quickest Bundesliga goal sinks Borussia Dortmund)advertisementWith this result, Leipzig became the best performing newly-promoted team after reaping their 11th straight game without a loss at the start of a campaign in Germany’s top flight.The ‘Bulls’ moved to the top spot and have edged past record Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for the moment, while Bayer Leverkusen stay at the eighth place in the standings.

A massive Trinamool Congress (TMC) rally that took place in Kolkata on Saturday has left the city with a scarcity of eggs as well as an increase in its price.Egg supply has taken a hit as the rally had lakhs of supporters pouring in from across the state to hear TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee’s message to them.In order to maintain the food supply for these supporters, TMC leaders had ordered lakhs of eggs from the market to ensure that the massive number of supporters had protein-rich food with the least possible effort.However, this has now caused a supply crunch, especially in Kolkata.Wholesalers are worried about rising prices which could lead to a steep fall in their business.”There’s no supply in the market and we are facing a severe crisis right now. In two or three days the price has risen up by 1 to 2 rupees. There is an extreme crisis right now. There are less supply and less income right now. People are eating but right now it is selling for six rupees a piece. Earlier it was five rupees. There’s less supply in the market,” said Sankat Shaw, a wholesaler from South Kolkata Market.The price per crate has gone up from Rs 155 to Rs 190 in just three days and the bare minimum increase per egg is now Re 1 and Rs 2.TMC MLA Sujit Bose had taken the lead by arranging eggs for supporters who were staying in Milan Mela ground and had come from North Bengal and other parts of the state.advertisementFormer sports minister Madan Mitra said, “Our party supporters come from far-flung areas and take all the pains for us, so it is our duty to give them the best possible protein filled healthy food… So, eggs and other meals for them this time.”The party had made a successful presentation with its supporters and took seemingly good care too…however it is the aam aadmi of the city that is paying a higher price.Also read: Mamata Banerjee hits out at BJP, says we are living under Hitler regimeAlso read: Former BJP MP Chandan Mitra, 4 Congress MLAs join TMCWatch: West Bengal syndicate exposed, TMC leaders stunning confession caught on camera
India’s ace boxer Mary Kom says that the forthcoming fiction show Kesari Nandan will inspire the younger generation to make their careers in the field of sports. Kesari Nandan is about a young wrestling prodigy named Kesari (actress Chahat Tewani) and her traditional father Hanumant Singh (actor Manav Gohil).Talking about the show, Mary said here at its launch on Friday: “I really liked the concept of this show. I feel every girl should watch this show. We have seen many shows which revolve around family relationships and romance between couples, but it’s the first time that I have come across a show like this. “I can relate with this show because initially my father wasn’t pleased with my decision to pursue career in boxing.”Arjun aur Eklavya ka farak mitaane aa rahi hai Kesari; 1 Jan se, Mon-Fri raat 8.30 baje. #KhelKesari pic.twitter.com/5MYTxSsq5Z— COLORS (@ColorsTV) December 21, 2018″I feel it’s a really good initiative for our younger generation. I feel whenever they will watch this show, they will be more aware about sports scene in India. It will inspire and motivate them to do something special in the field of sports,” she added.Mary, who has created history by claiming a record sixth title at the women’s World Championships, shared that if she can achieve so much success in the field of sports then anybody can achieve the same success like her.”When we started out, we didn’t have proper facilities to play the sport. But now, I feel facilities which are being provided to aspiring sportsmen have improved so, I feel if girls like me or Phogat (wrestler Geeta Phogat) can achieve success in big competitions then, anybody out there can achieve similar or more success than us.advertisement”Talking about Kesari Nandan, Phogat said: “I am feeling really happy that for the first time an unique show which revolves around sports will get telecast on television.””I can relate with this show because this show’s protagonist Kesari also wants to become a wrestler. She also belongs to a small village of Rajasthan like me, but her father doesn’t want Kesari to take up wrestling so, I feel this show will inspire our younger generation to follow their dreams and I also feel that after watching this show, many children would want to make their career in the field of sports. “In India, many people still don’t want their daughters to make their career in sports so, I feel a show like this can change their perception towards sports.”Produced by Contiloe Pictures, Kesari Nandan will premiere on Colors on January 1, 2019.Also read | Khatron Ke Khiladi is a very tough show, says host Rohit ShettyAlso read | New Super Dancer 10 notches better than past seasons: Shilpa Shetty

Speaking to journalists in New York, the Director of Operations for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), John Ging, said tens of thousands of displaced people who are living on what are effectively paddy fields will be completely submerged once the rains hit in less than two months.“A solution needs to be found to relocate those people and also to see the return and the freedom of movement for all the internally displaced persons (IDPs) so they can begin to recover their lives and their livelihoods,” Mr. Ging stated.Mr. Ging, who returned from a four-day mission to Myanmar and the Philippines, said he was also concerned about the serious intimidation of aid workers, particularly threats targeting national staff members, and urged the Government officials with whom he met to correct misperceptions about aid delivery in Rakhine. “We have been asking them to do more,” Mr. Ging said, noting that officials are not blocking access but need to do more to facilitate gaining access both in terms of security and logistics. He called on the Government to resume coordination with the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which has offered to help all those affected by the violence. “The offer of the OIC to provide assistance to both communities without distinction positions them to be an important part of the solution,” Mr. Ging said in a statement, recalling commitments he received from the OIC leadership during a recent visit to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.The Director of Operations also expressed concern about the lack of progress in reducing inter-communal tensions since his last visit in August 2012.Several waves of clashes between ethnic Rakhine Buddhists and Rohingya Muslims, the first of which occurred in June 2012, displaced families in the country’s western region and left more than 100 people dead. “Last year, I emphasized that the communal tensions in Rakhine had the potential to undermine Myanmar’s impressive democratization, peacebuilding and economic reforms and to increase humanitarian suffering,” he said, adding that the corrosive force of these tensions was evident last week when new violence erupted in the central township of Meikhtila, in Mandalay Region, displacing some 12,000 people. In the Philippines, Mr. Ging visited Compostela Valley in the southern island of Mindanao, where he met with families who lost relatives, crops and homes when Typhoon Bopha hit in December 2012. The typhoon – the biggest storm anywhere in the world in 2012 – killed more than 1,000 people and affected approximately 6.2 million.Mr. Ging praised the response effort mobilized by the local government and supported by the international community, calling it a “really excellent” model.He warned, however, that the needs of the local communities should not fall off the international community’s radar. The $76.3 million Bopha response plan is only 42 per cent funded as of 15 March.
She said one company had told her that current age verification technology was appropriate for them because they needed users to get online “seamlessly”. “But why should it be? If it’s a choice between children having to wait a small amount of time to get on to a site, and continuing to allow them on sites they shouldn’t be on, then to me the answer is obvious,” she added.Ms Longfield backed The Daily Telegraph’s campaign for a statutory duty of care, which is to be introduced by the Government.She said the companies should start introducing the changes now, rather than waiting for the Government’s planned legislation.She is incredulous at their claims that they don’t have the technology to do it and that they are obfuscating by claiming they want people to be able to go seamlessly online without checks. “Instead of trying to hold up the inevitable, it would be wise to get ahead of the curve,” she said. The Children’s Commissioner has mocked the social media firms who claim they cannot block under-13s from their sites but have the technology to see inside black holes.Anne Longfield says it is “particularly frustrating” the tech giants repeatedly claim it is “impossible” to exclude under-aged children because there is “no reliable form of age verification technology”.In an article published on the Telegraph website, she writes: “Can it really be the case that they can create driverless cars, see inside black holes and programme computers to beat the best human players of complex games like Go, but not find ways of making digital platforms fit for purpose for children? “Of course not. And for the record, I’ve been reassured that it is all very possible.” Ms Longfield says it is right, as proposed under a new “game-changing” statutory code, that social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram should be required to block under-13s or face punitive fines. This code could be the first step in redressing the balance,” said Ms Longfield. “Of course, it would be surprising if there was not a flurry of pushback from the tech companies, as so often happens when industry is asked to change its ways. “We will be told it would take a very long time, that it will negate the experience of the activity or that it simply can’t be done.” Show more Under the age-appropriate code, which is due to become law this year, the companies will have to introduce effective age checks, or treat all their users like children.Those that fail to do so risk fines of up to 4 per cent of global turnover, equivalent to £1.5 billion for Facebook. “For too long, the balance of power between children and the platforms they use has been firmly fixed in favour of the latter.
