 Sixth seed Lakshya Sen staved off a stiff resistance from second seed Rahul Yadav Chittaboina to triumph in men’s singles while Gayatri Gopichand finished on a high with two titles as the Yonex-Sunrise All India Senior Ranking Badminton Tournament-2019 concluded here on Sunday.
The 17-year-old, who reached the China Masters final in March, was put to a stern test by Chittaboina who edged the Prakash Padukone protégé 25-23 in the first game in an absorbing men’s singles final that lasted 61 minutes. The 2018 Asian junior champion found his rhythm and range midway through the match to take the next couple of games on his way to a 23-25, 21-14, 21-13 victory that gave him his first title of the year.
Gayatri Gopichand, who had upset the fourth seed Aakarshi Kashyap this week, announced her arrival in the senior category with a title in women’s singles as well as women’s doubles. In singles, the 16-year-old, who was seeded 13th, needed just 37 minutes to see off the challenge of Tanvi Lad, 21-19, 21-16 to lay her hands on her first Senior Ranking Tournament trophy.
Gopichand later made it a memorable day when she teamed up with Rutaparna Panda to defeat the fourth seeds and reigning national champions Shikha Gautam and Ashwini Bhat K, 19-21, 21-14, 21-10 in a one hour twelve minute long match.
There was no stopping the men’s doubles top seeds Krishna Prasad Garaga and Dhruv Kapila who did not drop a game to record a 23-21, 21-17 win over seventh seeds Sri Krishna Sai Kumar Podile and Gouse Shaik. They had won a gold medal at the Senior Ranking Tournament in Vijayawada earlier.
Shaik, however, amended for his mistakes in the mixed doubles category. The seventh-seeded pair of Shaik and Mayuri Yadav fought for 50 minutes to register a thrilling 21-19, 13-21, 21-12 win over Krishna Prasad and Ashwini Bhat.

“Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.”

Mouri’s Story

By : Siam Sarower Jamil

I met her last when I was in class eight. Studied together just for a year then I moved. We had no contact for nine years. Now I’m a graduate. Doing job & primarily settled in life. Today I met her and just have shocked. Child Mouri is now a woman who is struggling with her daily life. I was surprised to see her in this situation.
She was very restless when we were together. She can move over stairs handle. It was a strange & a interesting move like a fairy coming towards you very fast!
There’s a mango forest next to our class room & she could climbed at the top of the tree very easily. Throwing the mango to me she ordered  me to put in her bag and I always followed her instruction.
One day Another classmate was beaten by her. After that headmaster asked to meet her parents. I rescued her from headmaster by telling lie that time.
Everyday during school time she ran through the full three storey building of school. I was acting all time like a perfect follower of her trail. Another day, Sohan, the most violent boy in our class. he was beaten by Mouri, in such a way, that The parents had to rushed  to the police station at the end.
On that day, I had to testify to Head sir. I said, ‘Mouri can’t do anything like this, sir. She is silly but very good.’ She looked at me with astonishment. Because, he had beaten me with a crcket bat two days ago! Nine years later, I am seeing her calm, untidy; who is very much matured too!
The identity is a saleswoman in a tea stall. There, I was a buyer of a cup of hard liquor & she was seller. She runs a tea, drink, cigarette shop. In her family, there are three children, a crippled house husband and an oldie mother-in-law. The responsibility of whole family is on her neck.
After meeting, she just asked about me, where I am living, what I am dong. Just updated her. I didn’t know what she understand actually. Just shaking her head like saying yes!
We did not talk later and just gave a smile like a middle-class Bengali man. I thought once that I should ask her question, ‘How are you?’ But I’m not so brave man.
I asked to meet the bill, she did not take it. I did not force her second time. I thought, It would be unfair to not give her the opportunity
So, leaving the tea stall, I got up on the street. I saw the mirror image of her on many people in the streets. Touchiness moves on!  Just said my mind. ‘Yes, I’m still alive. Perfectly. I won’t think of anyone!’
