  2. My friend works for a statistical firm who analyse clinical trials for pharma companies. He said that the vaccine trials for coronavirus are rushed and will be released asap. Normally for any drug release they try to look for short-medium-long term side-effects. But for coronavirus because of the urgency, medicines/vaccine shall be used and the observed side-effects shall be treated as we go along. So for a proper over-the-counter medicine it will taken years. But human activity can't be stopped due to this and has to work around it. In this scenario, 2020 Olympics must go on as it wi
  3. Hi everyone, I have opened an Youtube channel named 'India in Olympics' - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp29tj5oECE0IMPVUZ3dulA discussing India's participation in 2020 Olympics. Also opened an Instagram page focusing on non-cricket Indian athletes - https://www.instagram.com/siddhartha_sportsfan/ Th aim of them is to create awareness of our athletes to the masses. Please do check it out and mention how to make it better
  4. I know its very early to predict but Badminton qualification extended to first 17 weeks of 2021 from a situation of about 5 tournaments remaining, can the likes of Saina Nehwal, Kidambi, Ashwini-Reddy, Ashwini-Satwik qualify or it will give advantage young dark horses like Lakshya Sen who will be more mature by then
  5. This image is of Indian cricket captain Saurav Ganguly twirling his jersey in Lord's Cricket Ground balcony London after India beat England in Natwest Trophy final on 13 July 2002. Set a target of 326 to win in 50 overs by England, India slumped to 146/5 after losing wicket of Sachin Tendulkar. Yuvraj Singh (debut 2000) and Mohammad Kaif (debut 2002), helped India to a famous victory. Saurav Ganguly had also twirled his shirt in response to the same act by English all rounder Andrew Flintoff a year earlier. In hindsight, this match this was a turning point of Indian cricket history as the
  6. Do you think Satwik-Shetty are genuine medal contenders. Indonesia will finish 1-2 in this event. Bronze could go to China or Japan
  7. Interestingly and ironically I am getting such Google ads in this thread even though I can do nothing to influence this
  8. If the discussion is about India having 'talent' but not able to perform because of improper nutrition we can consider India's urban population which itself is comparable to small countries - Delhi (18.6 mil), Mumbai (22 mil), Bangalore (12.4 mil), Kolkata (4.6 mil), Chennai (4.9 mil). The urban population just doesn't play cricket but football, badminton, table tennis, basketball are quite popular too. Restaurants and pubs also air non-cricket matches but of course nothing can be compared to cricket games. Recently there was a tournament of U-14 teams from English Premier League (includi
  9. The Indian men's Archery team reaching the final was a miracle and totally unexpected. Don't think it will be repeated in Olympics. My predictions for this event are 1. South Korea 2. Chinese Taipei 3. China
  10. The spike was more due to the religious meet in Delhi and the participants then going back to four corners of the country. More stupidity is that they aren't co-operating with the authorities. They have became the new hotspot cluster.
  11. We crossed 1600 yesterday with highest jump of cases yesterday. I was starting to believe we were controlling the spread as the rate of new cases per day was slowing down. With the govt not wishing to extend the lockdown period, the window to contain the virus spread gets shorter. Economic realities will compel to end the lockdown
  12. That lathi (bamboo stick) beating is just normal and some people need a stick to understand. Just an article how online buying of groceries and other essential items is playing out https://yourstory.com/2020/03/coronavirus-bigbasket-grofers-ninjacart-groceries-demand-rise-ecommerce?utm_pageloadtype=scroll
