approaching their 20s Some carry football balls They are heading to an immense empty field where they will hold their daily football practice the younger ones eager to perfect their ball-handling skills while the teenagers act as coaches earning money to pay for their education For all of the girls football is an opportunity for them to overcome deeply entrenched discrimination in their rural villages “We like to play football because there are only girls some boys but the teachers say if I have a problem I can solve it with them” says 13-year-old Pratibha Kumari as she walks to her home after practice Pratibha was alluding to the biased views toward gender in India particularly in rural areas like her village in Jharkhand In India 12 million adolescent girls — almost one in five — have experienced physical violence since the age of 15 and 26 million of girls aged 15-19 have experienced forced sexual intercourse or a forced sexual act according to statistics from UNICEF In Jharkhand six in 10 girls marry before the legal age of 18 “This is the part of India no one in the cities of India really sees But this is India — this is the norm” says Franz Gastler founder of Yuwa a non-profit organisation teaching girls football Gastler who originally hails from Minnesota started Yuwa in 2009 and added a school for girls in 2015 “Boys just harass girls here — it’s the norm and older women have grown up being abused so they are used to it” Yuwa seeks to empower the girls by showing them they have the right to focus on their education instead of getting married and starting a family and the right to choose their life path For several of the girls Yuwa has allowed them to travel outside of the area around their village for the first time Some have taken trips around India or even to Spain for a tournament Around 300 girls participate in the Yuwa football program and about 80 of those girls attend the Yuwa School for Girls Gastler says The organisation which has received a Nike Game Changers’ award also hosts workshops to educate about health and life skills such as menstruation and parent meetings Yuwa received more than $200000 in monetary donations and grants and in-kind donations in 2016 from public and private sponsors according to the organisation’s financial records *** Before the football drills start at the early morning practice the girls laugh cheer and gossip to each other Here on the football field their backgrounds don’t define them But as they share their stories it’s easy to see the obstacles they face Neeta Kumari 17 is one of six children five girls and one boy (The vast majority of girls in Jharkhand State have the title of kumari which means unmarried girl until they are married and it changes) Her parents kept having children until they finally had a boy Her three older sisters got married at 16 and 17 she says and never finished their education Now they are mothers with little hope for their future But they support Neeta’s dream to become a journalist and her enthusiasm for football “I feel very good because my sisters are supporting me” she says *** Having changed out of their football shorts cleats and striped socks the girls arrive at the small cement school on the Yuwa campus in groups Some arrive just as morning assembly starts their hair still wet from washing it after practice An assembly features skits performed by some of the girls in the language of Sadri one of the several languages spoken in Jharkhand The state is home to 32 indigenous tribes each with its own unique culture About one-quarter to one-third of the girls at Yuwa are indigenous but most speak Sadri at home says Rose Thomson education director at Yuwa Though the school teaches English and Hindi Thomson says it’s important for the girls to speak Sadri “They have this idea that there is a hierarchy of languages: English Hindi and then Sadri They’ll get embarrassed to speak their own language We talk about it quite a bit about how they should be proud of it and should speak their own language” Radha Kumari was taunted for playing football “Why are you playing a boy’s sport” her family would ask her She instead was supposed to be doing her chores and grazing cattle Though she was 12 she had never attended school Then she heard about Yuwa and the other girls attending a tournament in Spain Radha now 14 decided she should do the same thing She joined the football group travelled to Spain for a tournament and has now become a coach teaching the younger girls drills and exercises and earning money to attend school Older girls like Radha train to become coaches and earn money to pay for their education teaching them that they can be self-reliant and earn their own money She now dreams of

[email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsFirstly my heartfelt condolences to the entire Dalmiya family and his many many friends – what I am about to write is truly in praise of him but truthful in that praise – may his soul rest in eternal peace in that great great stadium in the sky In all the words that have been written about him since his death much truth has been written – how he changed the face of Indian and then world cricket – how he was a ‘players’ man – how he was easily reachable and always ready to face a challenge – how he truly loved cricket and enjoyed playing it as a young man Former India captain Sourav Ganguly pays tribute to the late Jagmohan Dalmiya in Kolkata on September 30 AFP Now I must be truthful I wrote against Dalmiya right from the beginning of his reign – right from the earliest days – not because I had any personal grudge against him – I never had the pleasure of meeting him – but because he represented – and I am sure he was proud to represent – all that is brave and shrewd and successful about business This was precisely my argument with him and about his style of working Yes he took cricket out of the colonial clutches of the British – but were our own neo-capitalistic clutches any better Has cricket prospered beyond the money earned and the glamour gained We have to think very very deeply about this – not only in the light of cricket but in the light of our entire nation – is the cricket we now have in 2015 – for which Dalmiya deserves full credit – really the cricket we wished for or wish for And is India of 2015 really the India we wished for or wish for I do not want to take sides – but we must look very deeply within ourselves and find an answer — soon The worst match-fixing scandal in the history of cricket took place on Dalmiya’s watch and his first reaction was that it was not true It was only Cronje’s bravery or his sense of guilt which opened the Pandora’s box Even then Dalmiya kept his cool and did not react with the concern and care that she should have His own beloved BCCI plotted and planned against him and threw him out Now this happens with all successful people in our beloved country but the people who threw him out then proceeded to produce the IPL which let in the most ironic fashion to Dalmiya being called back for a brief final innings Yes he made money for players and associations and boards – money they had never dreamed of – but where did the money come from and was all of it truly needed This is a question not only for today’s cricket but for today’s world – as we face yet another financial world crisis – as our Prime Minister roams the globe promising miracle after financial miracle – as the very people who started IPL are facing total financial ruin – we have to stop and think Is the process that Dalmiya set into motion – for which he deserves full credit – what we really wanted or needed Need and greed are not even cousins much less brothers We must remember that Today we celebrate Gandhi Jayanti – let us celebrate it with truth and honesty – let us look deep into history and remember who was truly responsible for his death – and his life Gandhiji disliked cricket – he thought it a waste of energy and a sport that promoted communalism That was cricket of the 30’s and 40’s – what would he think about today’s cricket – or – much more importantly – today’s India Let us all ask him today – as we celebrate his birth let us also remember his death And of course the South African series begins today – in the memory of Gandhi and Mandela – two truly great great men – and we start with a T20 match – even Dalmiya had never dreamt of T20 cricket when he took over in the early 90’s So we march forward Or do we By: Express Web Desk | Updated: December 25 2016 4:59 pm Babita Kumari represented India at the Rio Olympics earlier this year Top News When Babita Kumari became only the fourth female wrestler in the country to qualify for Olympics her name was etched in the history books She was only the third Phogat sister to do so after Geeta and Vinesh Though she could not win a medal in Rio earlier this year she is one of the most accomplished wrestler in India’s history She has been India top wrestler in the 53-55kg category and performed exceptionally well at the international arena Her silver medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games shot her to limelight She continued to medal at various international tournaments The 26-year-old has been talked about in all parts of the country after the movie “Dangal” The movie is based on the life of her father Mahavir Phogat who was also her coach The biopic also tells about how he made his daughters world class wrestlers Babita in 2012 became only the second female wrestler from India to win a medal at world championships Babita won a bronze medal just like her sister Geeta That was followed by another big achievement when he bettered her 2010 CWG silver winning performance A gold medal in 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow asserted her domination in the category That also continued her family tradition of world class

NewsBy: Express News Service | Updated: October 8 2016 9:24 am Sanju Samson attributes to his Delhi Daredevils mentor and India A coach Rahul Dravid (Express photo by Kevin D’Souza) Top News Touted as a prospective heir apparent for MS Dhoni Sanju Samson made his international debut on a blustery evening in Bulawayo an year ago It wasn’t by any stretch of imagination a memorable debut He made only 19 runs in 24 balls Then you couldn’t but feel sorry for the youngster for he came to bat in the 16th over and had little time to settle his nerves Thereafter though his stocks plummeted dramatically so much so that he doesn’t any longer sneak into any passing conversation pertaining to finding a suitable successor for Dhoni in the limited-over versions That he says doesn’t affect him Much more concerning for the 21-year-old last year was his middling form in the Ranji circuit Kerala’s most vaunted player he made only 208 runs and a solitary hundred in 13 innings at a meagre average of 16 Not that he wasn’t equipped with the technique and temperament to prosper in the longer-format but somehow he couldn’t reprise those consistently in first-class cricket which was a stumbling block for him to be in consideration for the Tests matches too An average of 3611 doesn’t bode well for a top-order batsman But if the determination he demonstrated in his first knock of this season was any indication he is keen to set that record straight In his first innings of the new season alone he scored nearly three fourth of the runs he had managed last year Had not for the incessant showers that truncated the second day’s play between Kerala and Jammu and Kashmir he could have even surpassed the tally He ended the second day on 142 The turnaround he attributes to his Delhi Daredevils mentor and India A coach Rahul Dravid “I’m learning a lot from him (Dravid) We keep on learning each and every day in every practice session He is someone who can mentor us like anything It’s a blessing for every youngster to be mentored by Dravid sir” says Sanju who had a reasonably good series with India A in Australia the high point being a strokeful 87 in Mackay As much as the technical inputs he learned from Dravid how to read a specific match situation “You’ve to learn the situation read the bowlers’ mind You just can’t go out there and smash every ball You’ve to stay out there and sometimes you may look ugly because the bowler is also prepared and he’s also there to take wickets We should respect the bowlers” he states But Sanju who has given up wicket-keeping and captaining for his state to focus more on batting knows one good knock doesn’t a summer make Brief scores: Kerala 282/7 in 962 overs (Sanju Samson batting 142 Jalaj Saxena 69; Beigh 4/76) vs Jammu & Kashmir For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsSeventeen years back he was stranded at the crease on 99 Tests Now Mohammad Azharuddin has decided he wants to hit a century by padding up as the captain of the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) With many well-set administrators in Indian cricket being clean bowled by the Lodha Committee’s spell of hostile bowling the former India captain reckons he is in with a chance But getting elected as the HCA chief will need more than just the sublime wristwork that Azhar was renowned for File photo of Mohammad Azharuddin Reuters The Hyderabad cricket fraternity is divided over Azhar given that a life ban was handed over to him in 2000 over allegations of match-fixing Not everyone is happy about Azhar’s entry and speak in hush-hush tones about his allegedly tainted past "The main problem with HCA is lack of integrity among office bearers where money has been siphoned off Prejudice and exchange of money play a part in player selection Into such a scenario enters a former India captain whose name was sullied by allegations of match-fixing Hyderabad cricket will have to take a call on whether he will be the right man to lead the administration team” says a former Hyderabad cricketer Those who support him include the likes of India’s manager for the 1983 World Cup PR Mansingh who believes Azhar has the stature "And since the Andhra Pradesh High court in 2012 exonerated him of match-fixing charges and the BCCI did not challenge the verdict in a higher court he has to be deemed to be clean” says Mansingh Azhar himself admits that getting into administration of the game has been on his mind for some time now Former Hyderabad cricketer Vijay Mohan Raj says that while Azhar’s involvement with Hyderabad cricket has been minimal so far it will be a welcome involvement "He has neither been in administration nor in a coaching role But it would be nice to have someone who has not been entrenched in the power centres He is passionate about the game and gives it 100 percent” says Raj Those opposed to Azhar have been raising technical objections over his candidature That he is not a member of any of the 216 clubs which have voting rights That HCA rules say that to contest for president one has to serve at least one term as Executive Council member and another term as an office bearer and Azhar does not fulfill both qualifications Former HCA president and India off-spinner Arshad Ayub whose exit as per the Lodha panel rules created the vacancy says "Our contention is that the BCCI has not lifted the life ban that was imposed on him in 2000 And HCA is governed by rules of the BCCI" However Azhar’s close associate Mohammed Khaleequr Rahman argues "BCCI is not above the court" But Azhar putting his hand up has focused attention on the muck in Hyderabad cricket In 2011 Mansingh filed a complaint in the Anti-Corruption Bureau court against the alleged wrongdoings The ACB was asked to investigate but even six years later the case is nowhere close to completion There are 22 accused in the case most of them HCA officials including Ayub "In the initial stage of the investigation the ACB found far more than what we had listed in our complaint The ACB served about 190 queries on finances of the association” says Mansingh A scrutiny of HCA accounts by Deloitte revealed humongous corruption including tax evasion forged cheques freebies for members and even electricity theft The Lodha Committee relied heavily on the Deloitte report The ACB probe also raised allegations of financial irregularities amounting to over Rs 87 crore between 2004 and 2011 HCA members point out that the association is a den of petty corruption and nepotism "Cricketers Ambati Rayudu Pragyan Ojha Hanuman Vihari Ravi Teja all left Hyderabad for other teams Why Because in every team that was selected there would be some surprise element in the form of some average players who would have got in because of other considerations” points out Raj Former cricketers point out that corruption is so deep-rooted that every aspect of Hyderabadi cricket commands a price "Even if you are an average bowler you can still get to bowl long spells in a match if you shell out Rs 15000 for a few matches in league cricket Same goes for below par batsmen who will get promoted up the order for a similar amount” says a former Hyderabad batsman The example of a spin bowler who had quit cricket around 2011 after ordinary performances is cited "Much to everyone’s surprise he made an entry straight into the Hyderabad Ranji team after three years in the wilderness and played for two seasons Now he has given up on the game again” says a HCA member on condition of anonymity A former selector reveals an attempt to bribe him with Rs 5 lakh by the father of a budding cricketer for inclusion into Hyderabad’s former IPL team Deccan Chargers "I threw him out of the room but was shocked to see the cricketer playing Ranji Trophy for Hyderabad soon after” he said These instances are mentioned to show that cricket is not priority for the powers-that-be at HCA Hyderabad that at one time boasted of several names in the Indian cricket team now has none "Cricket is not priority only money making is Forged bills have been submitted for just about everything Even catering bills are inflated where food is ordered for 700 people but bills submitted for 1100 people” says Mansingh HCA has the strange tradition of giving Rs 3 lakh each to 216 clubs every year Every club secretary has a vote and this is seen by many as institutionalised corruption akin to buying a vote and furthering a ‘you scratch my back I scratch your back’ system Ayub denies that the practise which in vogue for some seven years now is a cash-for-vote scam "The clubs need to pay for kits rental for nets and generally focus on development of the game That is HCA’s emphasis too This grant is given from the amount we get from the BCCI” says Ayub The powers-that-be deny Hyderabad cricket is rotting They have some reason for cheer this year as Hyderabad reached the quarters of the Ranji Trophy under two non-Hyderabadis captain S Badrinath and coach Bharath Arun Azhar left Indian cricket disgraced Now he is making an attempt to get into the murky cesspool of Hyderabad cricket He can only hope his cricketing whites don’t get
