the line when Chile faces Germany in Sunday’s final but the combative midfielder wants to claim the bragging rights over his German teammates at Bayern Munich It could be the third title in as many years for Chile’s golden generation of players They racked up Copa America wins in 2015 and 2016 beating Lionel Messi’s Argentina in both finals and defeated Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal on penalties in Wednesday’s Confederations Cup semifinal “We have proven our value on the pitch We beat Argentina which is one of the best teams and a few days ago we beat Portugal the European champion” Vidal

coach Juan Antonio Pizzi said Pizzi picked out Joshua Kimmich “who despite being so young is a central pillar of one of the best teams in the world Shkodran Mustafi was in the German side at the last

campaign started by a group called Taxpayers’ Association of Bharat wants every state in the country to execute a two-child policy so that the resources and taxpayers’ money can be utilised properly But critics wonder if that’s the right path to tread The two-year-old campaign which now has over two lakh members — including celebrities such as Ajay Devgn Suniel Shetty Priyanka Chopra and Virendra Sehwag — has also written to all the chief ministers to come up with a population control policy on the lines of Assam Assam in April announced a draft population policy which suggested denial of government jobs to people with more than two children and making education up to university level free for all girls According to the campaign since independence citizens have been paying tax so that the country could be developed in a poverty-free and crime-free environment but over the years both the crime rate and poverty have only increased The Total Fertility Rate (TFR) — the number of children who would be born per woman during child-bearing age — instead of decreasing has gone up Apart from Priyanka Chopra Ajay Devgn and Suniel Shetty are part of the two-year-old campaign "Over the years governments have done nothing to control the population instead they did only caste-based politics In 1961 the population below poverty line was 19 crore while in 2011 it rose to 36 crore Why the increase Is this why the citizens are paying tax for" questioned Manu Gaur National President of the campaign also known as Taxab Stating that it was important for every state to have a two-child norm to make the country prosperous Gaur told IANS that with the continuity in same TFR India’s population would hit 200 crore in the near future "Are we ready for such a situation" he asked For a stable population a country needs a TFR of 21 whereas Indian states have a TFR as high as 3-32 "It is quite evident that with such a TFR India cannot grow Today every well-off nation has a TFR of 21 or below" said Gaur adding that in India government jobs and welfare schemes should always be for the families having two children According to the campaign India has invested a considerable amount of resources in the name of family planning but no significant breakthrough has been made towards population control "Such policies cannot yield results Until we educate the couple and let them realise that more children is indeed a problem the problem can’t be solved We have to make contraceptives available in the rural areas whose absence is one of the biggest reasons for population growth" Suneeta Mittal Head of Gynaecology at Fortis Healthcare told IANS Mittal formerly the Head of Gynaecology at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences Delhi said that couples needed to be informed about other family planning methods such as spacing and permanent contraceptives instead of implementing the two-child policy Population Foundation of India (PFI) an NGO involved in various family planning policies of the country in its recent letter to Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma also raised its reservations against its draft population policy "We sincerely request you not to go ahead with the two-child norm China where a one-child policy was state law for 35 years till the country was forced to lift it in 2015 The country now finds itself in the midst of a population crisis" said the PFI letter to Sarma According to PFI it was observed that China’s dramatic post-1978 economic boom and the profound social changes unleashed by rising incomes and levels of education and rapid urbanisation would have driven down the birth rates even in the absence of a state birth planning campaigns Written by Express News Service | Kolkata | Published: December 3 2013 2:38 am

players the unseeded Kidambi Srikanth and B Sai Praneeth made it through the opening round in contrasting fashion Srikanth showing signs of returning to form after a lengthy sojourn on the sidelines due to a foot injury had no trouble in eliminating qualifier Kenta Nishimoto of Japan at 21-12 21-11 but Praneeth had to struggle for an hour and four minutes before he could subdue Denmark’s Emil Holst by a 17-21 21-7 21-19 scoreline Srikanth is strongly favoured to reach at least the quarter-final for he next plays Indonesia’s 21-year-old Ihsan Maulana Mustofa who stands at No 37 in the Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings even as Praneeth takes on China’s 24-year-old Qiao Bin whom Ajay Jayaram had comprehensively decimated in the second round of the Malaysia Open There was precious little luck for young Sameer Verma the 2016 Indian national champion who stretched Hong Kong’s Hu Yun over the extra points in both games but failed to convert a total of four game-point opportunities while going down 26-28 21-23 in two minutes under the hour mark Sameer’s elder brother Saurabh who had beaten his sibling in the 2017 National final found Indonesia’s hard-hitting Anthony Sinisuka Ginting far too hot to handle and went down without a whimper at 15-21 14-21 There is no doubting Saurabh’s potential but he requires a lot more of international exposure before he

going hard against the super-fit No 5 seed from China Shi Yuqi who had been runner-up in the recent All England Super Series final after eliminating compatriot six times former champion Lin Dan in the penultimate round The 21-year-old Yuqi who has recently barged into the top 10 in the BWF rankings was content to stay with the Indian in the opening game but was aggressive and masterful in the

dancing dynamo who had returned to the international circuit earlier this year after sitting out several months thanks to a right shoulder rotator cuff tear followed by surgery and lengthy

the end of 2015 winning the year-ending Dubai Super Series grand finals and then the All England title in March 2016 but then fell prey to the recurrence of an old shoulder injury first suffered in

and allowing the steady Okuhara to creep back up to 15-20 It was a repeat performance in the decider as Sindhu changed ends at 11-8 and enlarged the lead to 16-9 and 18-10 With the finish line in her sights at 19-11 the 5’11 Indian who had hit the No 2 rank on the Badminton World Federation (BWF) ladder at the end of the Indian Open got the heebie-jeebies all over again Despite trailing by half-a-dozen match-points at 14-20 the pint-sized Japanese girl mounted a spirited fightback and aided by a stream of Sindhu errors reeled off the requisite six points without answer to fully neutralise the lead It needed a supreme effort of will from Sindhu to break Okuhara’s momentum and capture the two points she needed at that stage to seal her triumph Although such an undoubtedly classy opponent did not deserve to be pitted against the in-form Indian shuttle queen at this early stage of the tournament it happened through the luck of the draw and because Okuhara did not have sufficient points to merit a seeding The Japanese girl did reveal the chinks in Sindhu’s mental armour in no uncertain manner The Hyderabadi has earned a pre-quarter final meeting with 18-year-old
