Congratulations to our sportspersons P V Sindhu and Sakshi Malik on their medals and bringing laurels to the country. But more than that, my respect and appreciation to the 118 athletes and countless others who persist despite meagre means and support from the system.A headline from a mainstream newspaper (The Times of India, August 24) that caught my eye - "India stingy during training, splurges after medals won".

Rowling, there is an interesting story about the Emerald Potion which I have reproduced below:Harry: "You think the Horcrux is in there, sir?"Dumbledore: "Oh yes. But how to reach it?

Festivals bring friends and families together and get-togethers lead to discussions. One favorite topic of discussion is the current state of affairs of the Indian polity and the Nation. Recently, I had one such interesting discussion with a friend of mine. We both passionately debated what is wrong with the current situation - rising oil prices, tax burden, poor infrastructure, demonetization, corruption, inept politicians and insensitive administration.
