the Judges of district court,But we are still playing hockey with them.Ah of course this is sport it doesn’t count Representational photo Getty Images Was it not sport when BCCI requested the ICC just two weeks ago to ensure that the two countries were not in the same pool in any international cricket tournament and there were enough of us who thought we were sending out a strong and powerful message Didn’tBCCI chief Anurag Thakur made it look like this was a crystal cut solidarity with the armed forces and the Indian outrage over the export of terrorism from our neighbour So how come sauce for the goose is not sauce for the gander seeing as how both are sports and hockey is still our national game There was so much cloying praise for our brave stance over cricket even if it made no sense; but the tame unquestioningargumenttoday belies everything that has been said Don’t get me wrong if we can be friends and end 70years of hostility that’s terrific But we cannot have double standards All that commotion about the Karan Johar film being released under police protection and Fawad Khan being drummed out of India and Bollywood splitting itself into for and against camps becomes a farce if we adoptdouble standards There has to be some staying power if we launch such offensives Johar was paraded as being anti-national for backing Fawad Khan and here we are on a Sunday afternoon buddying up on the hockey field and win or lose it makes chewing gum out of the national policy Perhaps there is no national policy and everything is knee jerk Prime Minister NarendraModi can go up on stage and slam Pakistan but we will play hockey We can shut them down and they can shut us out but we will stay play hockey There is no lessening of tensions on the border Pakistan has still banned Indian films continues to maintain there were no surgical strikes its defence minister has publicly and gleefully stated that he would annihilate Delhi with a nuke and supposedly Indian songs are off the radio and they are not showing the MS Dhoni biopic either In return we have gone global in our efforts to isolate Pakistan have it named a rogue state banned theirchannels and their actors from entering India and generally placed it on the backfoot in every department; even going as far as to scuttle the SAARC conference So why are we playing hockey and respecting each other’s anthems and shaking hands and no one thinks it is odd Is the battle over has the fat lady sung did something happen to change the dynamics have Uri Baramulla Pampore slipped off the news pages and will Anurag Thakur still avoid playing Pakistan on the group matches of the World Cup That is the 64 million dollar question Catch the live updates of India vs Pakistan Hockey Asian’s Trophy 2016 here

for women at ‘Battle of the Sexes’ screening Reuters Sep11 2017 14:12 18 IST Comment 0 Tweet Toronto:Academy Award winner Emma Stone praised tennis great Billie Jean King for pushing social change for women while battling her own insecurities at the Toronto premiere of Battle of the Sexes on Sunday night Stone plays King in the story of her famous 1973 tennis match against retired former champion and male chauvinist Bobby Riggs played by Steve Carell “I think the thing that was most inspiring to me.was that Billie Jean was going through so many personal trials at the time and discovering so much about herself” Stone said on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival Billie Jean King(R) waves to spectators during the opening ceremony for the women’s singles final of US Open as Emma Stone (L) looks on AP Along with the highly-publicized grudge match the film also covers King’s sexual exploration via a off-court relationship with a woman She did not publicly identify as a lesbian until 1981 “In this time period she was confused and scared and still was able to effect such massive social change” said Stone who won an Oscar earlier this year for La La Land King who won the match played a pivotal role in the fight for equal pay for female athletes and is considered a major influence on the women’s liberation movement as a whole But more than 40 years later the issue of equal pay both in tennis and the wider working world is still simmering “It’s eerily relevant these days and sadly it‘s I think more relevant than it should be at this point” Carell said ahead of the screening A tennis tournament executive Raymond Moore of the BNP Paribas Open last year said that top-level women’s players rode “on the coattails of the men” and were “very very lucky” to have equal prize money He stepped down from the role several months later amid heavy criticism with tournament owner Larry Ellison citing King’s “historic campaign for the equal treatment of women in tennis” when announcing the move The film has received early awards-season buzz since first screening at Telluride earlier this month with Stone’s performance especially well-received The Toronto festival is an important stop for filmmakers looking to showcase their work in the long Hollywood awards season that culminates with the Oscars on 4 March Battle of the Sexes was directed by husband and wife team Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton who previously worked with Carell for their 2006 film “Little Miss Sunshine” Stone and Carell had previously worked together on 2011’s Crazy Stupid Love
