football team captain Oinam Bembem Devi who on Thursday announced that the 12th South Asian Games (SAG) in India will be her last tournament is hopeful of retaining the top spot in the competition The competition begins on Friday and will be hosted by Shillong and Guwahati "I have been playing football for the last 21 years and I have finally decided to hang up my football boots after the 12th South Asian Games here in Shillong and this is the right time for me" Bembem told IANS Oinam Bembem Devi AFP The 35-year-old Manipuri now aims to engage herself in the development of women’s football in the country"My goal now is to promote football especially women’s football in India I will be devoting most of my time to train junior footballers in my home state of Manipur so that they can represent India at the national and international competitions" Bembem said Asked if she plans to get married after hanging up her football boots the central midfielder said "I have decided not to get married but decided to sacrifice my life for football I eat sleep and drink football and my goal now is to train young bloods and promote football to represent India" Bembem has been part of national championship-winning sides on 16 occasions with Manipur nine times as the captain She led the country to two South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) titles said women’s football in the country has improved with the AIFF-FIFA grassroots programme across various states "The grassroots programme for women is very strong in Manipur In almost all the districts in Manipur you will find young boys and girls at tender age are being train for the Under-13 and Under-14 Teams Therefore I am not losing hope with the performance of the Indian football in the years to come" She said Asked her message for

women’s football team coach Sajid Yosuf Dar also described Bembem as an inspirational figure "She has always been special and tactical player and according to me she is one of legendary footballers who has taken India to new heights in women’s football" Dar said reacting to Bembem’s retirement IANS Suresh Raina just like Indian captain MS Dhoni last played for India in the train-wreck of an ODI series in Bangladesh in June Dhoni and Raina’s knocks in the last ODI that India won batting at Nos 4 and 6 respectively was one of the few highlights of that otherwise forgettable series for India Dhoni said after the series that the way forward could well be him batting at No 4 and Raina being moved down the order — given the latter’s knack for finishing innings "I would like to bat slightly up in the order so I can play a bit more freely Yes I have adapted to what the team needed of me since 2006" Dhoni had said then "But for the longer run it is important for us to see who is a good batter at No 6 at 7 or even maybe 5 That is why I dropped (Suresh) Raina (down the order) He has been successful at that slot" File photo of Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni Getty Images With the T20I and ODI series coming up against South Africa the focus will shift on India’s limited overs side and how will they bounce back from the Bangladesh debacle Raina for one is recharged and raring to go as India’s chosen finisher "No 5 and No 6 are not easy positions to bat at You go out there and have to score 15 runs in five balls or 50 in 20 balls" Raina told BCCItv in an interview "It is a position that comes with a lot of pressure You don’t get regular chances to bat long and even then if you don’t score big in three games there is pressure from everywhere I know how it feels At the beginning of my career I did more fielding than batting" "You should learn how to cope with that and at the same time go and hit sixes when your chance finally comes There is a lot of risk management involved in this role Whoever we groom for the role from now on I will do my best to help him cope with these aspects" Raina said In his career spanning over a decade Raina has played many a match-winning knock lower down the order But his best batting position in ODIs statistically is No 4 — a position which Dhoni could make his own in the upcoming tournaments Compared to his career average of 3618 at a strike rate of 94 Raina averages 45 at No 4 at a strike rate of nearly 99 in the 19 innings he’s played there The fact remains however that Raina is arguably India’s best bet for lower-middle order —where he has played 150 out of his 187 ODI innings (from No 5 onwards) While the T20 lineup could see him bat at No 3 more frequently Raina is set for a long-ish stint as a finisher in the limited overs "MS (Dhoni) knows my game inside out and I would be happy to play whatever role he deems is right for me Also if MS decides to bat at 4 regularly it will only benefit the team It will make life easier for the batsmen to follow He can build the innings with the top-order and accelerate with the lower-middle order" Raina said After a break of nearly three months Raina was back in India’s blue as he was selected to play for India A against Bangladesh A in a three-match series Starting off understandably rusty Raina finished the series on a high with a series-clinching ton in the decider A welcome return to form indeed Raina said that he needed this series to get back to his batting rhythm as he has spent the three-month layoff practicing at nets in Uttar Pradesh and also in Amsterdam with the Netherlands cricket team Recently married Raina said that the time off helped him regain a ‘happy mental space’ Raina also spoke very highly of former teammate and current India A coach Rahul Dravid "I have played under him got my ODI and Test caps from him and he has seen me very closely for years" Raina said "His involvement was unbelievable He was always there giving catches talking to players and offering valuable insights on skill and technique After watching him play for all these years and playing with him when I saw him as a coach I saw that nothing has changed" For the full interview with BCCItv click here New Delhi: Eyeing the main opposition role in West Bengal the BJP on Monday claimed that "nationalist" leaders from the Congress and the Left in the state will join the saffron party as they are feeling insecure with the "appeasement politics" of TMC chief and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Mamata Banerjee PTI BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya who was with party president Amit Shah during his recent three-day tour to Bengal said the local population is feeling "threatened" due to Banerjee’s "vote bank politics" Vijayvargiya who is also the BJP in-charge for the state indicated that the saffron party will use the plank of the ‘native vs illegal immigrant’ there like Assam where it rallied the Hindu voters by taking up the issue of the alleged large-scale illegal immigration from Bangladesh "The local Bengalis are finding their identity under threat due to Mamata Banerjee’s appeasement and vote bank politics They find it hard to celebrate Diwali and Durga Puja" he told reporters in an oblique reference to the state’s Hindu populace which is about 70 percent of its total population With the strength of the Congress and the Left parties declining their nationalist leaders will look for an option and the BJP will be their choice he said He claimed that over 15 crore infiltrators from Bangladesh have been living in the state illegally Winning over leaders from other parties has been a key tactic of the BJP and it used that to big effect in recent assembly elections in states like Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand The TMC has accused the BJP of communalism with Banerjee saying that it was polarising voters in the state for political gains Vijayvargiya said the state’s bureaucracy has been politicised under her government and police stations have become an extension of the Trinamool Congress office The state with 43 Lok Sabha seats has been identified as a key growth region for the BJP by Shah who will visit it again in the coming weeks The party could win only two seats there in 2014 but has seen an increase in its vote share in various by-elections Though the TMC remains the dominant force the BJP has come second in several polls and believes that it can be a force to reckon with by the 2019 general election replacing the Left and the Congress as principal challengers to the TMC Written by Alaka

about the inspiration behind Dear Zindagi becoming more disciplined as a writer and why she won’t settle for a co-director For your directorial debut English Vinglish (2012) you worked with Sridevi who is a seasoned actor For Dear Zindagi you have a new actor like Alia Bhatt on board How was your experience with the two actors When the actors are talented it does not matter how experienced they are Sri was great to work with and she never made me feel that she is a veteran working with a debutante director Alia too brought in similar discipline to her work It is beautiful when people who are intrinsically talented bring in their spirit of teamwork and not their stardom It’s an adventure to work with different actors who have their own unique style Watch |5 Reasons To Watch Alia Bhatt And Shahrukh Khan Starrer Dear Zindagi English Vinglish was inspired by the story of your mother Is there a personal story to Dear Zindagi as well Dear Zindagi is inspired by life in general It started with an idea about the connections we make in our lives and how such connections can impact us That’s something that interested me and I tried to develop a story around the philosophy After English Vinglish I was not sure whether I would make another film as I am not ambitious about doing one film after the other I was living my life — travelling and doing other things that interest me So when this idea came up I thought of making my second feature You’ve written both the films you’ve directed What’s your writing process like My process is to keep on writing till I have a decent script in hand I don’t even talk about making a film till there is a bound script Of course we keep making changes in it But I have to be confident about the draft before we start production I can’t have a half-baked script and then lofty goals regarding the film The script of Dear Zindagi took nearly five months The writing of English Vinglish took more time I was not under any pressure or deadline for it I was doing my own thing and I was not writing it continuously I have become more disciplined now Also read |Dear Zindagi movie review: Alia Bhatt Shah Rukh Khan film is a kitchen sinktalkathon When did you decide to become a filmmaker When I was in Symbiosis Institute of Mass Communication Pune I interned as a copywriter However since I was interested in watching movies and doing something related to cinema I chose to join the film department of advertising agencies when I started working When I made my first short film Oh Man (2001) I was not entirely serious about being a feature filmmaker I assumed it is one of those things we dream of and which never happens As I made more commercials somewhere that slowly changed and I longed to say my own story In advertising I was always telling another person’s story — directing someone else’s written word How much of your inputs go into an ad based on someone else’s script I don’t intervene if it’s written by someone else I take up only those which I believe in I have been lucky to work with some very talented and creative people in the world of advertising There is a lot of discussion and people are open to inputs I don’t force my opinion However if something is good for the film we definitely discuss it Do you have a bigger say when you are directing a film There is no point in directing a film if I can’t have my say A feature film gives us a lot of freedom but as a creative person one always seeks more freedom In advertising barring a few projects I have never felt restricted Otherwise I have always believed that it is a free space where people are open to ideas Making a feature film involves struggle regarding many other things and handling a much bigger team How has your advertisement training influenced your filmmaking I have enough knowledge of production because of my background A director needs to have this knowledge to make decisions on set I often know what the script needs and what works best for the film I am a very responsible director Even in my advertising days I never had to reshoot or go overboard with budget At the end of the day it is someone else’s money I am really conscious of that You married R Balki ahead of his first film Cheeni Kum (2007) How actively have you been involved in his projects We’ve known each other for a really long time Though I have been his sounding board I have not officially worked on any of his films I am there for him as a supportive partner I don’t want to hang out on his sets as his wife That would be weird I go there as a worker since I know the team Have you both ever thought of collaborating as directors or writers He produced my directorial debut English Vinglish However not just him but I won’t allow any other person to be my co-director Unless you are conjoined twins I wonder how people can do that You can’t have two different visions For my script I do brainstorm with Balki and other friends For all the latest
