Akshay Tritiya sales likely to remain weak due to high gold prices

Akshay Tritiya sales likely to remain weak due to high gold prices

first_imgGold sales are likely to remain weak on Akshay Tritiya this year. Jewellers primarily attribute it to the high price of gold that is hovering above Rs. 30,000 per 10 gm for more than a week now. “During Akshaya Tritiya (which falls on May 9) we are expecting marginal growth in sales compared to last year as the prices are ruling very high and due to the present dry weather conditions in the country,” PTI quoted All India Gems and Jewellery Trade Federation (GJF) Chairman Sreedhar G V as saying.Even if people do buy, it would be in smaller lots as most of them have already done wedding-related purchases, he added.A former head of the federation voiced similar views.”There will be buying as people will purchase a token small ticket size jewellery or coin for the festival and they will hesitate to go for heavy pieces due to high prices,” former GJF Chairman Bachhraj Bamalwa said, according to PTI. Gold prices have appreciated from Rs. 25,390 per 10 gm at the beginning of calendar year (CY) 2016 to Rs. 30,125 on Friday (May 6) in the Delhi bullion market.Silver prices also have risen sharply to close at Rs. 41,040 per kg on Friday from Rs. 33,300 at the beginning of CY 2016.However, a Bengaluru-based jeweller is hopeful of sales picking up on Akshay Tritiya this year, while admitting high prices are a dampener. “The increase in excise duty and the surge in gold prices had adversely affected the buying patterns. However, by Akshaya Thritya the sentiments will witness a reversal,” Pratap Kamat, CEO of Abaran Jewellers, said in a statement.Sentiment among gold traders also got dented due to the re-introduction of the 1 percent excise duty on all jewellery items, except silver, for jewellers with turnover of Rs. 12 crore or more in a year.During the debate on the Finance Bill 2016 on Thursday, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley ruled out withdrawal of the excise duty, despite requests and protests by jewellers.The stock exchanges will be extending trading hours for gold ETFs on Akshay Tritiya.Some of the listed jewellers in India include Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri (TBZ), Titan (jewellery division is called Tanishq), PC Jeweller and Gitanjali Gems. The unlisted firms include Malabar Gold, Joyalukkas, G. R. Thanga Maligai (GRT) and Mehrasons Jewellers.last_img read more

Cricket betting grips country

Cricket betting grips country

first_imgCricket betting is not a thing for the rich anymore. From the city’s streets and tea stalls to housing complexes and restaurants, gambling is now everywhere, with more and more people, mostly from the lower income group, gambling on the outcome of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) matches.It’s not really something entirely new. In 2014, Atanu Dutt, a bookie, was arrested by police in Dhaka. Quizzing him, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) came to know that Dharam Singh Yadav, an officer of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) anti-corruption and security wing, was into gambling himself.Three people, including former national captain Mohammad Ashraful, were handed sanctions for their involvement in match fixing, in connivance with bookies.On 22 September this year, a young boy was killed in Rajshahi over a dispute centring cricket betting. Last Monday, a student of Manarat University was also killed for protesting cricket betting in the area.Dhaka Metropolitan Police commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia told Prothom Alo that all the intelligence agencies and the police stations have been instructed to increase surveillance to stop gambling.A team of Prothom Alo recently visited a tea stall next to a rickshaw garage in Shyamoli and found Md Monirul Islam and Jasimuddin betting on the ongoing match between Comilla Victorians and Chittagong Vikings.This gambling session takes place in this stall everyday, said locals.The Prothom Alo team found booksellers, restaurant boys, and other people with low incomes gathered in different tea stalls near Nilkhet’s Gausul Azam Market to bet on BPL matches. They bet on the outcome of the match, scores per over, total scores and on many such aspects.Most of the gamblers there were low-income people. A 15-year-old restaurant boy said, one of his friends lost almost Tk 8500 in the last three days.Abdullah Al Mamun, a small trader from Mohammadpur, said  people in the Bihari Camp area take part in betting activities the most, gambling all the year round.Ripon Mia, an RMG worker in Savar, said most of his co-workers are betting on the BPL matches. Someone he knows had to sell his cellphone as well.Betting on the netBesides this local betting activities, gambling is hugely participated online as well.A young man working for a private firm said he had been placing bets on different cricket matches for the last few years, but that he plays on a UK-based website. One needs an international credit card to bet on these sites.Most of these websites are based in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia, countries where gambling is legal. Despite the rules saying only citizens of these countries could take part, people from other countries register and bet on matches.Outside Dhaka city, cricket betting is very popular in Jamalpur, Chittagong, and Rangpur.A correspondent in Prothom Alo’s Chittagong office reported that betting on BPL is going on in almost every area of the city. The Rangpur correspondent said it is the same there.last_img read more

BNP struggling with seat sharing

BNP struggling with seat sharing

first_imgLogo of BNPThe Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) is yet to fully overcome the challenge of sharing parliamentary seats with old and new allies for contesting the upcoming general elections.Partners of the BNP-led 20-party alliance and newly formed Jatiya Oikya Front demanded at least 90 seats. Of them, Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, a component of the 20-party alliance, wants 35 seats, a number the party contested for in the 2008 elections.Other partners of the alliance demanded 20 seats while the Oikya Front allies sought at least 30-35 seats.The main opposition party is, however, pondering over sharing 50 seats at best with the allies, the BNP and alliance partners said.The BNP leaders said a large number of local level leaders, who have been with the party in its ups and downs, are expecting nominations as the party is going to contest the national elections for first time in 10 years.At the same time, the party policymakers are keeping an eye on the probable candidates of the ruling Bangladesh Awami League and its allies.Amid all these equations, the BNP could not finalise its party candidates until now, the leaders say.They said they have completed taking interviews of nomination seekers of all 300 seats and are currently busy with sorting.The final decision will be taken by Sunday or Monday.In the mean time, the leaders said, they will discuss with the 20-party alliance and Oikya Front about seat sharing.“The BNP is currently busy with finalising their party candidates. We hope the seat sharing discussion will be held by Saturday or Sunday,” a leader of Jatiya Oikya Front and convener of Nagorik Oikya Mahmudur Rahman Manna told Prothom Alo.Several highly placed leaders in the BNP said they have been considering keeping one or two alternative candidates ready for each constituency, should any first choice get overlooked in the sorting.The BNP and the alliance partners said they will select candidates based on a few criteria. Such candidates would include those who have greater chance to win, those who have stronghold at the field level and financial capability alongside educational qualifications, and those who have experience in fighting polls and acceptability among the people of the constituency.Death of many senior leaders and age of many popular leaders will also force the BNP change its candidates.Accordingly, standing committee members Jamir Uddin Sircar and former chief of army Mahbubur Rahman will not compete in the elections.“I’m not competing in the polls as I’ve grown older. We should give way for the younger generation,” Mahbubur Rahman told Prothom Alo on Friday.Standing committee member Tariqul Islam died this November while ASM Hannan Shah, Khandker Delwar Hossain, M Shamsul Islam and RA Gani, former deputy speaker Akhter Hamid Siddiqui and former state minister Fazlur Rahman (Patal) passed away in the past few years.BNP standing committee member and also 20-party alliance coordinator Nazrul Islam Khan said, “We’ve agreed to select candidates who have maximum chance to win. Nepotism won’t be entertained since we’re competing in the polls in a completely hostile environment.”*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritte in English by Shameem Rezalast_img read more

Iran plays down threat of new US sanctions

Iran plays down threat of new US sanctions

first_imgUS secretary of state Mike Pompeo (L) meets with Saudi king Salman bin Abdulaziz at Al Salam Palace in the Red Sea city of Jeddah on 24 June, 2019. Pompeo traveled to meet with Saudi leaders today to build a `global coalition` against the Islamic republic of Iran. Photo: AFPIran plays down threat of new US sanctionsIran on Monday played down the threat of new US sanctions as Washington was expected to tighten punitive measures on Tehran in a standoff sparked by the US withdrawal from a nuclear deal.Tensions have flared after Iranian forces shot down a US drone Thursday, the latest in a series of incidents including attacks on tankers in sensitive Gulf waters that have raised fears of an unintended slide towards conflict.Both the US and Iran have repeatedly said they want to avoid going to war, but the spiralling tensions saw US secretary of state Mike Pompeo travel Monday to meet with Saudi leaders to build a “global coalition” against the Islamic republic.Tehran says the drone violated Iranian airspace and foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has backed the claim with maps and coordinates — allegations dismissed by Washington.US president Donald Trump claimed he called off a planned retaliatory military strike on Iran at the last minute, tweeting that Washington would instead place “major additional sanctions on Iran on Monday”.”Are there really any sanctions left that the United States has not imposed on our country recently or in the past 40 years?” Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said at a Monday press conference in Tehran.”We really do not know what (the new sanctions) are and what they want to target anymore, and also do not consider them to have any impact,” he added.Last year, Trump unilaterally pulled the US out of a landmark 2015 deal meant to curb Iran’s nuclear programme in exchange for sanctions relief.The US has since imposed a robust slate of punitive sanctions on Tehran designed to choke off Iranian oil sales and cripple its economy — which he now plans to expand.Trump, who has waged a “maximum pressure” campaign against Iran, has also said the US is prepared to negotiate with the Islamic republic with “no preconditions”.”America’s claim of readiness for unconditional negotiation is not acceptable with the continuation of threats and sanctions,” Hesamodin Ashna, an advisor to Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, said Monday on Twitter.”We consider war and sanctions to be two sides of the same coin,” he added.- ‘Global coalition’ -Pompeo met Saudi king Salman and crown prince Mohammed bin Salman in the Red Sea city of Jeddah and was later due to hold talks in the United Arab Emirates, US officials said.Saudi and Emirati leaders both advocate a tough US approach against common foe Iran.Pompeo described Saudi Arabia and the UAE as “two great allies in the challenge that Iran presents”.”We’ll be talking with them about how to make sure that we are all strategically aligned and how we can build out a global coalition,” Pompeo said.He said the US sought a coalition “not only throughout the Gulf states but in Asia and in Europe that understands this challenge and that is prepared to push back against the world’s largest state sponsor of terror”.But on Monday Russia, one of the world powers that negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran, denounced the planned new sanctions as “illegal”.- Cyber attack -US media reports said Trump ordered a retaliatory cyber attack against Iranian missile control systems and a spy network after the drone was shot down.On Monday Iranian telecommunications minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi said no cyber attack against his country had ever succeeded.”The media are asking about the veracity of the alleged cyber attack against Iran. No successful attack has been carried out by them, although they are making a lot of effort,” he said on Twitter.He acknowledged that Iran has “been facing cyber terrorism — such as Stuxnet — and unilateralism — such as sanctions”, naming a virus believed to have been engineered by Israel and the US to damage nuclear facilities in Iran.With the US out of the deal, Iran has said it would reduce some of its nuclear commitments unless the remaining partners — Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia — help it circumvent US sanctions and sell its oil.Thierry Coville, an Iran expert at the French Institute of International and Strategic Affairs (IRIS), also questioned whether there was room for further US action as previous sanctions have already severely hit Iranian crude exports.”The Americans are asphyxiating Iran economically in order to force them to hold talks with them,” Coville said.”What more can be done? They will no doubt tighten secondary sanctions… and most probably extend a list of Iranian firms banned from trade.”last_img

La horma de mi zapato On love and taxis

La horma de mi zapato On love and taxis

first_imgRelated posts:A love letter to Costa Rica’s second language Costa Rica, The Quiz: How much has your adopted country changed you? On tweeting and twitteando: Should we resist when languages change? Costa Rica, The Quiz: How much has your adopted country changed you? Recommended: Costa Rica, The Quiz – How much has your adopted country changed you?My decade in Costa Rica has been guided, sustained and enlivened by a long-term relationship spanning almost the entire period. Like most any relationship, it’s had its ups and downs, but it’s also been there for me through thick and thin, through rainstorms and heartbreak. As February, the month of love, came to a close, I found myself reflecting on 10 years of heart-to-hearts and steadfast friendship.Oh, I’m sorry. Did you think I was talking about my husband? I could say any of those things about him, too, but I’m referring here to my friends the taxistas: the armchair (or driver’s-seat) philosophers and politicians, the distinguished and the mulleted, the reserved and the jovial. They’ve held my hand – figuratively speaking, of course – through many a learning curve, and taught me almost as many dichos, refranes and obscure street addresses as my husband himself.My love for taxistas is not universal. You roll the dice whenever you close one of those oh-so-fragile (don’t ever, ever slam them!) red doors, just as they roll the dice when picking up a new client. There’s plenty not to love: the reggaetoneros who slouch way down under the weight of their chains and scoot so far back that no one can sit behind them without yogi-style contortion; the ones who call their entire families, text incessantly, or watch movies while driving; the ones who act as though they have a personal vendetta against everyone else on the road, which they very well might; the ones who sigh as if you’re asking them to break a $100 when you provide a ₡2,000 bill for a ride costing ₡1,500. (The subtleties and profound annoyances of taxis and change could inspire many columns.) Rather memorably, there was the guy who, as the cab pulled away into the street, said, “Thank God you hailed my taxi just now. You saved me from going to jail this very night.”An opening line like that one requires an answer, so I obliged. “Oh, yes? How’s that?”He explained that when I flagged him down, he had been on the way to murder his boss. (If you think that that should have prompted me to ask to be let out of the taxi at once, then you clearly haven’t spent much time in San José.) Apparently, the taxi driver and his beloved wife of 15 years had five children, the youngest of whom had a congenital disease and desperately needed a special formula. He had asked his boss to pay him his salary just two days early so he could buy the formula and save his baby’s life, but the coldhearted taxi Mafioso refused. I didn’t believe him, but found the story impressive enough that at the end of the ride I gave him a little extra “for your son.” It was worth every colón when, a month later, I found myself once more in the same driver’s taxi. He clearly didn’t recognize me.“Thank God you hailed my taxi just now,” he said. “You saved me from going to jail this very night.”“I did?” I asked in amazement. “Tell me more!” I enjoyed myself immensely, stringing him along throughout rush-hour traffic that would otherwise have been interminable, before finally observing that it was very strange that the baby who one month earlier had been a three-month-old boy, was now a two-month-old girl, and that his five children had become three. I suggested that a man with such a cruel boss and, apparently, multiple wives and disappearing children, might want to stop procreating quite so vigorously. We spent the rest of the ride in very pleasant silence.So, there are taxistas and there are taxistas. But on the whole, I love the river of amiable, chatty, and well-informed men who have carried me around the city day after day and week after week. When I was a reporter, I never wasted a cab ride. I’d always give the address and, in the next breath, ask his opinion of the bill I’d just learned about or the politician I’d just interviewed. I was rewarded with seas of information, some questionable but most very useful, about corruption, dalliances, promises unfulfilled. I heard just about every opinion under the sun, but almost always with the same basic yearning for a safer, fairer, cleaner Costa Rica – with, of course, better roads.As the years went on, the conversations got a bit more personal, as if the taxi drivers who were shuttling me were a single person I was getting to know over time, and not hundreds of different men. Maybe I was feeling more comfortable in my new home; maybe the years in Costa Rica were slowly loosening my reticent Yankee tongue. Regardless, I usually learned much more than I told. Late-night rides are conducive to confessionals, although the shared pain of a rush-hour odyssey can make fast friends of anyone. I had surprising chats about love, parenthood, infertility, adoption, divorce, death. One man told me about how he came home one night to find all of his belongings on fire on the street. Another, as we listened to Puccini, told me about his lifelong dream to go to the Metropolitan Opera House in New York.Most of all, I learned about language. Showing admiration for one turn of phrase was a sure way to elicit a deluge of instruction. One man waxed poetic about his wife, and asked whether I had found my media naranja – my half-orange. I could infer what this meant, and was charmed. I instantly pictured two half-oranges rolling around the street, looking for each other, straight out of Plato. “I love that,” I said. “How else do Costa Ricans talk about love?”A half-hour later, I’d heard about everything from “the light of my eyes,” to “the sun of my spring,” to tal pa’ cual (this for that – kind of like “two peas in a pod”), to my all-time favorite: la horma de mi zapato. “Horma” is the figure a shoemaker uses to shape or reshape a shoe. It’s a way of saying you’ve found your perfect fit, but I also love the idea of a shoe coming home, bedraggled and misshapen, and draping itself over a nice sturdy wooden shoe-tree like the ones my dad used to use. That’s marriage for you: Sometimes you’re the bedraggled old shoe, and sometimes you’re the sturdy shoe-tree, and you try to avoid both being the old shoe at the same time.That evening, as I got ready to head home from work, I realized with a curse that I’d left my frumpy walking shoes in that man’s taxi. They were too old and cheap to warrant calling the cooperative and tracking down the driver, but it meant that I wouldn’t be able to walk home from work, since I could no more make that trek in my heels than I could fly. I had an outrageously annoying commute home that night, hobbling in my office shoes through the rain, sitting on a series of steamy buses, then plunging into a giant puddle when I finally reached my neighborhood. I felt low, lonely and homesick, as I do whenever San José shows me its claws.I walked up to our garden gate, opened it and went in. There, bedraggled and misshapen, were my walking shoes. Clearly, the taxi driver had found them at some point of the day, realized that only one woman in his daily labors could possibly be gigantic enough to wear such boats, remembered my address, came by and tossed them over the fence, with enough skill to make them land under our outdoor table so they wouldn’t get too wet in the rain. All I could think was: la horma de mi zapato. The form that shapes and reshapes us can be a partner, a child, a parent, a friend. It can be a whole country. It can be a kindly confederacy of taxi drivers, whose wit and wisdom can salvage the grumpiest day.Read previous Maeology columns here.Katherine Stanley Obando is The Tico Times’ arts and entertainment editor.

organisation of Valley The Indian Expressreported With inputs from PTI At around this time a year ago Kidambi Srikanth had just won his third Superseries title of the year and was getting set to attack a fourth He had just bagged the Denmark Open crown taming the lion in his own den viz beating the then reigning world champion Viktor Axelsen in front of Dane’s own crowds in Odense on his way to the top prize File image of Kidambi Srikanth AFP Today as the Indian gets set to defend his French Open crown at the historical Stade de Coubertin (named after the man who launched the modern Olympics) he would realise that a lot has changed Although Srikanth did touch the top rung of the Badminton World Federation ladder for an all-too-brief week in May it was on a technicality thanks to the postponement of a particular tournament in which Axelsen needed to defend a handful of points; and was not backed by the fistful of titles he had pocketed in 2017 In fact there has not been a single individual title to Srikanth’s credit in 2018; just a solitary team gold medal and an individual silver at the Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast Other vital elements have changed; Axelsen appears a pale shadow of the player he was last year And looming over the shuttle sport is the shadow of a former junior world champion who realised his full potential by claiming the 2018 World Championship in Nanjing earlier this year Japan’s Kento Momota After being banned for illegal gambling by his country’s badminton association for a year in April 2016 at a time when he was already the World No 3 player Momota accepted his punishment stoically and returned to the circuit in April last year with a ranking that was outside the top 250 Even though he was not allowed to play tournament badminton he kept himself fit and practised regularly biding his time when he could once again parade his wares on the global stage Making his way back by playing on the lowly Challenger circuit and accumulating the required points the 24-year-old Momota aced the rankings table by hitting the summit on 27 September at around the time that the draws for the French Open World Tour Super 750 championships were being made His raw talent passion to excel and be the best in the world were sufficient to see him make his way to the World No 1 spot far sooner than had been generally expected In the process the Japanese southpaw collected an impressive 85457 points from a mere 13 tournaments powering ahead of second-ranked 22-year-old Chinese star Shi Yuqi (81692 points from 16 tournaments) and relegating the 2017 world champion Axelsen (77704 points from 12 tournaments) to the third spot With the points he collected from his Denmark Open win at the expense of Chinese Taipei’s Chou Tien Chen (75794 points from 20 events) on Sunday last Momota is now comfortably ahead of the chasing pack Indisposed Malaysian veteran Lee Chong Wei (67973 points from 11 tournaments) is in fifth place only marginally ahead of India’s Kidambi Srikanth (67845 points from 13 events) It is for all the foregoing reasons that Srikanth will be defending the last of his four Superseries titles at the Stade Pierre de Coubertin in Paris from Tuesday The 25-year-old Indian who has been seeded fifth at the $750000 prize money French Open has suffered the enormous misfortune of being bracketed in the same quarter as the man whose game he has been unable to decipher – his conqueror at the Denmark Open Momota “I am very happy that I won the match but there are many things that I need to improve in my game for the next match” was the humble assertion of Momota after he had beaten Taiwanese Chou in three tough games in Sunday’s final at the Odense Sports Park The fact that the Japanese ace believes he can improve a lot more bodes ill for Srikanth as he opens his own campaign in Paris against the bustling Hong Kong player Wong Wing Ki Vincent whom he leads 6-3 in career head-to-head meetings The statistics include three encounters this year alone with the Indian winning at the Badminton Asia Championships in April losing in the individual event of the Asian Games in August and then beating Wong at the Japan Open in September The winner of the Srikanth-Wong tussle will be up against the winner of the opening-round match between Korean Lee Dong Keun and Thailand’s Khosit Phetpradab and it will be the man who emerges undefeated from these scraps that is slated to face off against Momota in the quarter-final The other Indians in the men’s singles draw have even more challenging lung-openers in Paris Bhamidipati Sai Praneeth will cross swords with the No 3 seed Viktor Axelsen while Sameer Verma who fared so well in Odense last week faces Indonesian Jonatan Christie winner of the individual gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta The winners of these two first-round matches bump into each other in the second round As for the women World No 3 PV Sindhu has a great chance of gaining sweet revenge for her defeat at the hands of American-Chinese Beiwen Zhang in the first round of the Denmark Open last week The two will face off against each other in Paris and their winner has been given an equally onerous task of facing the victory of the first-round clash between Hong Kong’s Cheung Ngan Yi and Japan’s Sayaka Sato It will be recalled that Cheung had given Saina Nehwal a harrowing time in Odense with the Indian saving two match-points while squeaking to a 24-22 win in their first-round encounter The 28-year-old Indian faces Saena Kawakami of Japan Whoever goes through will run into the winner of the match between eighth-seeded Nozomi Okuhara and Spaniard Beatriz Corrales Should Saina and Okuhara make it past their opening-round rivals they will set up a repeat of their Denmark Open semi-final meeting which the Indian had won in a bruising three-gamer Three Indian men’s doubles pairs have made the grade in Paris National champions Manu Attri and Sumeeth B Reddy take on South Koreans Min Hyuk Kang and Kim Won Ho with their winner slated to bump into the No 3 seeds Liu Cheng and Zhang Nan of China or Danish old-timers Mathias Boe and Carsten Mogensen Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy who had skipped the Denmark Open have drawn the German duo of Jones Ralfy Jansen and Josche Zurwonne; and should go through for a second-round meeting with the fifth-seeded Danes Kim Astrup and Anders Skaarup Rasmussen The youthful combination of MR Arjun and Shlok Ramchandran who had the distinction of winning the men’s doubles title on Sunday at the Hellas Open in Greece have been given a trial by fire against China’s No 2 seeds Li Junhui and Liu Yuchen It would be the greatest win of their fledgeling international careers if they were to upset the powerful Chinese pair With the top women’s doubles combination of Ashwini Ponnappa and N Sikki Reddy opting to give Paris a miss it will be left to their juniors Poorvisha S Ram and Meghana Jakkampudi to see whether they can leave their own indelible impress on this tournament They have been drawn in the same part of the draw as the No 4 seeds from Indonesia Greysia Polii and Apriyani Rahayu Two Indian pairs are in the fray for mixed doubles honours Rankireddy and Ponnappa clash with the English husband-and-wife combination of Chris and Gabrielle Adcock unseeded for the first time in living memory An even more daunting outing awaits Rohan Kapoor and Kuhoo Garg who have the top seeds Zheng Siwei and Huang Yaqiong blocking their path in the very first round Even with this plethora of interesting matches on the menu the Indian badminton fan will only raise two questions: Can Srikanth defend his French Open crown with Momota in his way at the quarter-final stage Can Sindhu reverse the trend of three narrow losses in a row against Beiwen Zhang who was also Bukhari’s colleague,娱乐地图Jerold, complained, Photo Credit: Oak Ridge
