hostility friendship and humanity Outpost a short film directed by Shiva Shankar Bajpai captures the absurdity and reality of two warring neighbours — India and Pakistan “Last year there were close to 63 cross-border violations reported within two months One man shoots a bullet and the other responds from across the border This back and forth continues” says 30-year-old Bajpai Set along the NorthWestern India-Pakistan border the film was screened at the Mumbai International Film Festival (MIFF) on February 6 The film is loosely inspired by Samuel Beckett’s landmark play Waiting for Godot — the story of two characters who endlessly wait for a man named Godot In Outpost the wait could be either for war or peace says its director The film starts with a scene where the Indian guard Sunil played by Deepak Dobriyal is woken up by a mosquito in his tent “I’ve used the mosquito as a metaphor for cross-border terrorism A desert usually has no mosquitoes so the presence of one signifies that cross-border terrorism is created by us” says Bajpai The idea germinated when Bajpai was in New York Over there he got the chance to interact with many Indians and Pakistanis living outside their respective countries In Bajpai’s opinion the issues between the two countries are a reflection of some sort of sibling rivalry that is always close to resolution but never reaches a logical conclusion

progress towards attaining a goal In Mumbai Indians’s case recording their second loss to the same opposition for their winning run to come to an end might throw up a few points for them to introspect ahead of their next challenge Especially if they are to live up to their billing of that of a top dog that is considered a favourite for making it to the playoffs if not laying their hands on the silverware After a run in the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) that one can equate to dominance with six wins on the trot — a couple of which were pulled off from near-impossible situations — life came to a full circle when the Rohit Sharma-led side recorded a narrow loss to the Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) the very team responsible for handing them a disappointing start in the tournament in the first place MI’s six-game winning streak came to a halt against RPS IPL/SportzPics The two sides went into this game on the back of a very contrasting forms While MI seemed to be on a rampage of sorts by winning every single game after the seven-wicket loss in the lung-opener in Pune RPS seemed to have lost a bit of the momentum especially in their losses top Delhi Daredevils (by a whopping 97 runs) and to Gujarat Lions (the current bottom-rankers) However in Pune’s case wins over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) had done the confidence of the Steve Smith-led side a world of good The toss has become crucial to the point where winning it is equated to battle being half won When the Mumbai Indians skipper won the toss and unsurprisingly elected to field that has been something of a chasing team’s dream it seemed as if Mumbai already held the acesby taking advantage of the dew factor while batting in the second innings Those hopes took a bit of a beating early on when Ajinkya Rahane unleashed a volley of strokes that would have made Indian batting legend and the birthday boy Sachin Tendulkar watching the game from the sidelines proud There was little answer that the two Mitchells of pace in the Mumbai atack —Johnson and McClenaghan — had in reply to the exquisite strokeplay that he offered which complemented the confidence that his opening partner Rahul Tripathi exuded in his stay at the crease The two put on an opening stand worth 74 before Rahane was done in by a certain Karn Sharma who happened to be playing his first game for the franchise He took quite the beating before getting the breakthrough that halted what was starting to shape itself into a runaway partnership Coming in place of the injured Krunal Pandya in this game Karn did not quite get off to the best of starts and probably suffered from a nerve attack in his second over when he was hit for a six and a four He did however comeback nicely by deceiving Rahane with a top-spinner that the latter failed to pick while going for a cut getting cramped for room and top-edging it back to the bowler That wasn’t his only moment of glory as he got rid of Tripathi five runs short of the latter’s 50 and would have walked away with the wicket of the RPS captain had it not been for Harbhajan Singh spilling the chance at deep midwicket While Karn walked away with a mixed outing it turned out to be a disappointing day in office for Mitchell McClenaghan who was the match-winner for the side in their 14-run win over the Delhi Daredevils at the same venue and somehow looked lacklustre this evening The saving grace for the side was Harbhajan Singh who engineered his experience to not only restrict the run-flow in the middle-overs but make up for his dropped catch of Karn’s bowling by reducing his pace in a half-tracker to Smith that rattled the latter’s off-stump giving the veteran offie his 200th T20 wicket Then there was the ever-reliable Jasprit Bumrah whose dismissals of MS Dhoni and Manoj Tiwary in the slog overs was largely responsible for restricting Pune to 160-odd when they looked set for something bigger after the start they got off to However restricting Pune to 160 did not necessarily translate into a cakewalk of a chase for Mumbai with the pitch being slower that usual on Monday evening and the ball stopping on the batsmen which caught the latter off-guard While the Mumbai opening pair of Parthiv Patel and Jos Buttler showed some promise early in their partnership the latter was done in by the brilliance of the man of the occasion — Ben Stokes While the England all-rounder couldn’t quite shine with the bat in the Pune innings he more than proved his worth with a wicket-maiden over that slammed the brakes on Mumbai’s progress Even though most of the Mumbai batsmen disappointed on the occasion whether it was the departure of in-form batsman and their leading run-scorer Nitish Rana that would have hurt them the most Rana was dismissed for a meagre 3 while Parthiv got his stumps shattered after expecting a little more turn from Washington Sundar than what he eventually dished out in the wicket delivery However not everything was sour for Mumbai that evening and skipper Rohit Sharma breathing his batting form back to life with his first half-century of the ongoing tournament is a sign of the progress that was expected of him While he survived a run-out on 22 after some terrible communication with Kieron Pollard his innings exhibited the defiance that had been missing in his performances for so long His weakness against leg-spin had been discovered in the matches leading to this and his Pune counterpart Smith held Imran Tahir back for Rohit However the Mumbai captain tore him apart with a flurry of fours and sixes exhibiting some clean hitting in all the loose deliveries that he got Had it not been for a brilliant penultimate over by death overs-specialist Stokes as well as a contentious wide called in the last over (with Rohit getting fined his time for questioning the umpire’s decision) Rohit would have led Mumbai home in the company of Hardik Pandya However Pune were the better team on the occasion and all that Mumbai can do for now is to look back at both the positives and negatives from this match Losing by a margin as narrow as three runs isn’t exactly one that would bog a team as illustrious as MI down and it is time for them to spring back from this defeat harder than ever in the coming games Paris: France did their homework to make sure they did not follow England’s example and fall to giantkillers Iceland said goalscorer Dimitri Payet "We worked on their weaknesses and their strengths" Payet said after the 5-2 quarter-final win at Stade de

with Antoine Griezmann now the leading scorer in the tournament with four goals The Atletico Madrid striker set up Payet for his goal "It is a joy to link up with a player like that We don’t tread on each other’s toes" He said Griezmann’s pass for his goal had been "a gift" Payet said France had to ignore Germany’s injury problems going into the semi-final on Thursday "What we are going to remember is that they are the world champions We know what to expect we know they have qualities But we have become stronger tonight" Two goal man-of-the match Olivier Giroud said his side would be out to avenge their 2014 World Cup quarter-final defeat to Germany France lost the game in Brazil 1-0 "It will be a completely different match they’re the world champions and often in the last four of

Representational image Getty Punjab already has a cricket facility in Mohali’s IS Bindra PCA Stadium built in 1992 but over the years lack of proper parking facilities have emerged as major constraint as the existing facility is located in the middle of a residential colony In 2011 PCA’s executive committee had met under the chairmanship of its then President Bindra and decided to build a modern cricket stadium at Mullanpur on the outskirts of Chandigarh which will be three times bigger than the existing one "We had acquired nearly 40 acres of freehold land at Mullanpur in the demarcated sports and leisure area which is having wide roads and very good connectivity from Chandigarh and even from various places in Punjab "The new stadium at Mullanpur also called New Chandigarh is going to be ready in next three years or even before that" PCA’s chief executive officer Brigadier GS Sandhu (retd) told reporters on Monday at the site The new stadium would have three grounds — for matches and practice — and also a state-of-the-art cricket academy which would attract trainees from associate and affiliated members of the International Cricket Council (ICC) said PCA’s chief operating officer Deepak Sharma At the site of the new stadium which will be built in two phases work is going on in full swing and the boundary wall has come up The total cost for building the first phase of the stadium which is coming up in Togan and Tira villages is approximately Rs 150 crore honorary project director of the Mullanpur stadium project BK Bassi said adding after the completion of the first phase the matches can be hosted As against Mohali stadium’s seating capacity of nearly 27000 the Mullanpur facility can accommodate 38000 spectators Bassi said There will be an independent players pavilion which will be located on the first floor Besides a corporate pavilion will also be set up media block will come up in the north pavilion and there will be two general stands Sharma said According to Bassi the Mullanpur stadium will have sub-surface drainage which the existing PCA stadium lacks meaning the ground will be dry within 30 minutes of a heavy downpour Sharma said the stadium will have rain water harvesting and solar panels making it environmentally friendly "There will be a total of 16 gates and the new facility will be disabled friendly" he said The stadium will have its own sewerage treatment plant As against 18 flood lights installed in the Mohali stadium due to height restrictions the Mullanpur facility will have four-six flood light pillars New Delhi:

nanotechnology scientists have developed a new diagnostic process that can identify aggressive prostate cancer from a single drop of blood with 40 per cent more accuracy than current screening methods The Extracellular Vesicle Fingerprint Predictive Score (EV-FPS) test uses machine learning to combine information from millions of cancer cell nano-particles in the blood to recognise the unique fingerprint of aggressive prostate cancer The diagnostic evaluated in a group of men suspected of prostate cancer correctly identified aggressive prostate cancer 40 per cent more accurately than the most common blood test — Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) and helped them avoid unnecessary painful biopsies and over-treatment “Higher sensitivity means that our test will miss fewer aggressive cancers…for this kind of test you want the sensitivity to be as high as possible because you don’t want to miss a single cancer that should be treated” said John Lewis from the University of Alberta in Canada Current tests such as the PSA and digital rectal exam (DRE) often lead to unneeded biopsies the researchers said while presenting the paper at the International Society for Extracellular Vesicles conference in Toronto recently More than 50 per cent of men who undergo biopsy do not have prostate cancer yet suffer the pain and side effects of the procedure It is estimated that successful implementation of the EV-FPS test could eventually eliminate up to 600000 unnecessary biopsies 24000 hospitalisations and up to 50 per cent of unnecessary treatments for prostate cancer each year in North America alone Lewis said “Compared to elevated total PSA alone the EV-FPS test can more accurately predict the result of prostate biopsy in previously unscreened men” added Adrian
