Rohit Sharma in India’s 12-man squad for Adelaide Test, no Bhuvneshwar Kumar

first_imgRohit Sharma found his way back into the Test squad as India announced their final XII for the first Test against Australia at Adelaide Oval, starting Thursday.India will be playing a four-Test series in Australia and as they look for a first-ever Test series victory down under, the beginning to which will be very crucial.Bhuvneshwar Kumar is set to miss the first Test in Australia as India went with three genuine pacers in Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah.India will have just one genuine spinner in Ravichandran Ashwin while Hanuma Vihari might feature as the part-time spinner in the Test.Ahead of the first Test, former India pacer Zaheer Khan had backed Umesh Yadav in place of Ishant Sharma for the first Test but captain Kohli decided to go with the experience of Ishant in the Australian conditions.In terms of the batting department, it looked more or less sorted with the only change of plan that the Indian management had had to make was triggered by Prithvi Shaw’s untimely injury in the warm-up match.It will be interesting to see if Rohit Sharma will be in the playing XI and if he does make it, will he open alongside Murali Vijay or KL Rahul or he will bat at No.6 with Vihari being sacrificed.Adelaide is expected to be a green pitch that might suit the bowlers of both India and Australia. The Adelaide curator said ahead of the match that he has decided to leave the green top of the pitch that he particularly created to facilities day and night Test.advertisementIndia’s final XII for first Test against Australia: Virat Kohli (C), Ajinkya Rahane (VC), KL Rahul, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit Sharma, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (WK), Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit BumrahAlso Read | Australia drop Mitchell Marsh for Adelaide Test vs India, Marcus Harris to debutAlso Read | Kuldeep Yadav can be a match-winner in Australia Test series: Sunil GavaskarAlso Read | Will Virat Kohli be quicker than Bradman to 1000 Test runs in Australia?last_img read more

Theres Not Much Evidence A New Coach Will Help The Jets 49ers

It’s Black Monday — the day after the NFL’s regular season concludes — when 20 to 25 percent of teams (usually of the non-playoff-bound variety) have historically begun their offseason by firing (or otherwise parting ways with) their head coaches. This year, the New York Jets have fired Rex Ryan, Mike Smith is out in Atlanta and Jim Harbaugh left the San Francisco 49ers in a mutual split. Further changes may be coming.Teams don’t take these coaching changes lightly, but for all the focus on the coaching carousel, it’s been difficult for researchers to figure out how much who’s wearing the headset matters.Teams that change coaches have a strong tendency to improve the following season, which could be taken as prima facie evidence that swapping in a new coach makes a profound difference. But it also could simply be the residue of regression to the mean. A poor record is generally required for a team to consider dismissing its coach, but much of the differences in NFL team records is due to luck and not the comparative skill levels of the teams themselves. When that luck evens out, the team appears to improve, even if its underlying skill didn’t change all that much.And this phenomena is essentially what the research on NFL coaching changes has found. Although the average team to change coaches since 1994 has seen its winning percentage improve from .383 to .428 the next season, that’s mostly regression to the mean at work. In fact, once we account for the teams’ previous Elo ratings and the inexorable pull that a .500 record exerts on NFL teams from year to year, there’s little evidence that changing coaches helps teams at all.The aforementioned sample of teams had an average Elo rating of 1437 at the end of the regular season with their old coach, which tends to translate to a .463 winning percentage the following year whether a team changes coaches or not. But the season after making the change, those teams averaged a .428 winning percentage — about 35 points lower than we’d have expected based on their previous Elo ratings. This may speak to broader institutional issues that are correlated with coaching changes but beyond the influence of the coach himself, such as dysfunctional ownership, a poor general manager or players who consistently win less than point-differential-based metrics would predict.These types of findings lend credence to the theory that NFL coaching changes offer franchises little more than the illusion of control over their future. While it may feel satisfying to fans and owners to fire a coach after a disappointing season, it’s tough to quantify the real benefits of such a move — if any even exist. read more

Ohio State mens basketball hangs on vs Illinois 7573 for 6th straight

OSU junior forward Marc Loving (2) celebrates during a game against Air Force on Dec. 8 in Columbus. OSU won, 74-50. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorThe Ohio State men’s basketball team extended its win streak to six games Sunday, as it defeated Illinois 75-73 in a close-fought conference matchup in Columbus. OSU survived the Fighting Illini’s 3-point barrage in the second half, narrowly escaping as Illinois’ last-second heave bounced off the left side of the backboard. After the game, OSU coach Thad Matta said he was impressed by Illinois’ performance, as the visitors played OSU tough up until the final whistle.“I thought Illinois played very, very well,” Matta said. “They hit some of the (timeliest) shots that I’ve ever seen. Give our guys credit, (because) a few weeks ago we would have probably crumbled, but we kept our composure, we kept fighting.” The Buckeyes were led by the play of junior forward Marc Loving, who had 27 points and seven rebounds. The win pushes the Scarlet and Gray’s record to 10-5, including a 2-0 mark in the Big Ten.Matta said getting high-level play from Loving, the most experienced player on the team, is essential to the team’s success. “Marc was very, very efficient tonight,” Matta said. “I think he kind of had a huge three in the corner, but also was able to put the ball down on the floor, got to the foul line. Marc has had a really, really good focus the last few games and, as your lone upperclassman on a basketball team, you hope that’s something we can continue to ride on.” OSU was able to ice the game at the free throw line, shooting 28-of-39 from the stripe for the game. Both teams were in foul trouble early in the second half, much to the disdain of Illinois coach John Groce.“We’ve got to play a lot harder without fouling,” Groce said. “That’s the highest number of free throws an opponent has shot against us all year and that was the difference in the game.” Groce’s team only made 12 of 32 3-point attempts, and overall OSU held Illinois to 40 percent shooting from the field. Matta said although the defense is not be where he ultimately wants it to be, he is happy with the way the defense is playing.“I think that we’re getting there,” Matta said. “The thing that I would say that I’m not pleased with is we made some mistakes and they made us pay for them tonight. Those are things that are happen. I do think we’re understanding scouting more. We’ve got to continue to build it, but I like the direction we’re headed with our defense.” For OSU, the first half was one to forget, as the team was held to only 32 percent shooting from the field, thanks to the 2-3 zone Illinois employed. The rough first half, however, could perhaps be attributed to the absence of freshman point guard JaQuan Lyle, who picked up two fouls in the opening two minutes of play. The Buckeyes clung to a 30-26 lead going into halftime, looking for improved results in the second frame.OSU found those results with Lyle back on the court. With their starting point guard leading the offense, the Buckeyes returned to form in the second half — seeing a near-instant improvement. With Lyle running the show, OSU shot 52 percent from the floor in the second half.“I couldn’t be happier with the way (JaQuan) played,” Matta said. Lyle said he was disappointed to pick up two quick fouls and put his team in a bind early on, but knew when he came back in the second half, he would have a chance to lead his team to victory. “My mindset was that I was fresh,” Lyle said. “Everyone else had been playing the whole first 20 minutes so I took advantage of that. My legs were fresh and I made a couple of layups. Then I just started making plays.” Lyle poured in 14 points and a team-high 5 assists — all in the second half — for OSU.The Buckeyes, now on a hot streak with six straight wins, will move to face Northwestern on Wednesday in Evanston, Illinois, which Matta said will be a good test for his basketball team.“We’re going to see where we are,” Matta said. “The last road game against (Connecticut), we were awful. It will be interesting to see how we come out to start that game. Northwestern is playing some great basketball right now and it’s always a tough place to play.”Tip-off against the Wildcats is set for 9 p.m. read more

Mens soccer Ohio State seeks revenge against Michigan State in Big Ten

Senior defender Hunter Robertson (6) passes the ball upfield during the OSU vs. Penn State game on Tuesday. Credit: Ris Twigg | Assistant Photo EditorThe No. 6 seed Ohio State men’s soccer team hits the road and looks for revenge against the No. 3 seeded Spartans in the first round of the Big Ten tournament at 1 p.m. Sunday at DeMartin Stadium in East Lansing, Michigan.The Buckeyes (7-9-1, 3-5-0 Big Ten) enter the matchup riding an eight-game losing streak, which started against the Spartans, as Ohio State lost 5-1 on Oct. 1. In their last game of the season, the Buckeyes fell 2-0 to Wisconsin.Head coach John Bluem thought the cause of the loss came from self-inflicted mistakes by the team.“I think what we learned most from that game is that our own mistakes is what really killed us,” Bluem said. “Immediately after tying the game up, before halftime we allowed another goal which kind of killed us. In the second half, I don’t think we had the attitude and the mental capacity to come back from that mistake.”The Spartans (11-2-3, 5-0-3 Big Ten) are coming off of a 1-1 tie against Indiana and are undefeated at home this season (5-0-2). The five in-conference wins were the most in program history.Senior forward Nate Kohl believes the loss earlier in the season to the Spartans was not an accurate representation of Ohio State.“We’re going to Michigan State and it’s not an easy place to play, but I believe that if we play at our very best I think we can beat them,” Kohl said. “I mean the game we played earlier in East Lansing this year, I don’t think it was the character of our team. A 5-1 loss wasn’t Ohio State soccer, we’re going to come out and we’re going to be ready to play.”The Buckeyes are led offensively by junior midfielder Abdi Mohamed, who has 11 points (three goals, five assists), and freshman forward Joshua Jackson-Ketchup, who has seven points (three goals, one assist). But scoring will not be easy against junior goalkeeper Jimmy Hague, who was the first-ever Spartan to win Big Ten Goalkeeper of the Year.Ohio State will take on a tough Spartan defense, which ranks second in the nation in shutout percentage (.643) and 11th in team goals against average (.667).The Spartans are led offensively by junior forward Ryan Sierakowski, who has 17 points (seven goals, three assists), and junior forward Dejuan Jones, who has 16 points (six goals, four assists). The Buckeyes hope to return starting sophomore goalie Parker Siegfried, who is 7-5-1 on the season.The Buckeye defense is holding opponents to 1.24 goals per game, but Siegfried allows just .90 goals per game and has picked up seven shutouts.Senior defender Hunter Robertson is embracing the Buckeyes’ underdog role and thinks it can play to their advantage. “Every year I’ve played in the Big Ten tournament there has always been some upsets,” Robertson said. “They thrashed us the first time, but I think this time if we can bring more intensity into the gameplay, be more physical, and if we can get one or two on them we can win the game.”Even though it’s single-game elimination, Robertson has confidence in his team to push through the adversity presented to them.“One game at a time, if you lose you’re out that’s the mindset right now,” Robertson said. “If we lose this game it’s my last game playing at Ohio State and I really don’t want that to happen, so I’ll do whatever I can to prevent it.”Robertson is one of three Ohio State players in the past 10 years to start in over 80 matches. He wants his senior year to continue and to have the chance to set the school record for most starts in program history, which would only be possible if the Buckeyes make it to the National Championship game.“If you would have told me that I was going to have that many starts when I first came in, I probably would’ve laughed and told you that you were crazy,” Robertson said. “I feel very humble and appreciative of every opportunity the coaches have given me and this has been, by far, the best experience of my life and I hope I can drag it out for as long as possible.” read more

Terror funding case JKLFs Yasin Malik shifted from JK jail to Delhis

first_imgIn a secret move, the chairman of the J&K Liberation Front, Yasin Malik, was shifted out of the Kot Bhalwal prison to a high-security prison complex of Delhi’s Tihar Jail on Tuesday. Top intelligence sources said that only some higher rank jail officers were aware of the move. Malik was arrested after JKLF was banned by the government under the anti-terror law.”This is in accordance with a policy of zero tolerance against terrorism followed by govt,” Union Home Secretary Rajiv Guha said. Malik has been charged with the kidnapping of former Union Home Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s daughter, the murder of four Indian Air Force personnel and conspiring migration of Kashmiri Hindus from the valley.The Narendra Modi-led government had said that there are nearly 37 FIRs registered against Yasin Malik’s JKLF. The NIA has also registered a separate case against Malik. The NIA had brought Malik to Delhi on Tuesday evening after NIA court issued a production warrant.Who is Yasin Malik?Yasin Malik is one of the popular separatist leaders from Kashmir who has been a proponent of Azaad (independent) Kashmir since 1987 when militancy broke out in the valley. Malik was one of the few local men who crossed the Line of Control to get arms training from Pakistan occupied Kashmir.He floated JKLF which was the militant organisation that carried out many attacks against security forces in the valley. Malik was also arrested several times. But soon afterwards, he shunned the path of violence and is said to have adopted the Gandhian resistance policy. Key Kashmiri seperatist leaders Yasin Malik (L), Syed Ali Shah Geelani (C) and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq hold hands after addressing a press confrence in Srinagar on November 8, 2016.TAUSEEF MUSTAFA/AFP/Getty ImagesThe recent move of the ban on JKLF by the government had evoked condemnation from mainstream politicians like Mehbooba Mufti and others in Kashmir saying that the order was unnecessary since Malik was no longer supporting violence.However, the government reiterated that it has credible evidence of Malik funding stone pelting activities in the valley. It was also said that JKLF was engaged in promoting anti-India feelings among the people of Kashmir, which is detrimental to the country’s territorial integrity.last_img read more

Body of headless woman found inside box near Delhi metro station probe

first_imgGetty ImagesIn a spine-chilling incident, a headless body of a woman was found in a box on a bicycle near the national capital’s Jahangirpuri metro station on Saturday, June 8.The body was discovered at around 5 pm in the evening by the Delhi Police when a local shop owner noticed water dripping from the box and an odour emanating from it and informed the police. They soon arrived at the scene, opened the box and found the decomposed body.”Inside, a woman’s headless body was found wrapped in a blanket,” Bhisham Singh, additional deputy commissioner of police (North West) told Hindustan Times. He added, “There were no identification proofs in the box.””Prima facie it appears that the woman had been killed two-three days ago and was dumped here. The body had started to decompose and the skin had turned black,” an officer was quoted as saying by PTI.Investigators revealed that the box was white in colour and that it was taped in many places so that it wouldn’t come apart when the body was stuffed in it.A probe is underway and the footages from a CCTV camera in the vicinity are being scrutinised to check who brought the bicycle. The body has also been sent for an autopsy to Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial Hospital.last_img read more

Cheddar Buys Rate My Professors Website From Viacom

first_imgMillennial-targeted news startup Cheddar is getting into the prof-assessment biz with the acquisition of Rate My Professors from Viacom.The RateMyProfessors.com website and its app are used by 6 million college students monthly, who write an average of 125,000 new professor and course ratings per month. Currently, it hosts over 20 million ratings across 1.8 million professors, spanning nearly every college and university in the U.S.Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed. Viacom bought RateMyProfessors.com in 2007, where it had been housed in the conglomerate’s MTVU college network group.Cheddar’s pickup of Rate My Professors comes after its May 2018 acquisition of Viacom’s MTV Networks on Campus, the distribution platform for MTVU. Cheddar used that to launch CheddarU, a collegiate-focused news network that runs on 1,600 TV screens on 600 U.S. campuses. With the MTVU deal, Carlo DiMarco — who ran MTVU and Rate My Professors as SVP of digital networks for Viacom Music and Entertainment Group — joined Cheddar. Another five former MTVU employees came over to the startup this summer, according to Jon Steinberg, founder and CEO of Cheddar, “so we mostly had the team already.”Rate My Professors adds “user-generated content and deep engagement to our company,” Steinberg said. “Rate My Professors, coupled with our [over-the-top] networks and CheddarU network, makes us the defining media company for a new generation that has no relationship with legacy cable news media.”Cheddar plans to redesign RateMyProfessors.com and enhance the site’s features for searching and evaluating profs. Next year, the company intends to roll out a premium tool set for educators to manage their profiles on the site, similar to what company-ratings site Glassdoor offers to employers.In addition, Cheddar has signed a deal with Taboola as a strategic in-feed discovery partner for Cheddar’s operation of Rate My Professors.Cheddar’s programming is available on Sling TV, Hulu, YouTube TV, Snapchat, FuboTV, Philo, Amazon, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook and smart TVs in the U.S. It currently broadcasts two live networks: the flagship Cheddar business-news network and Cheddar Big News, a general news network.The New York-based company was founded in early 2016 by Steinberg, formerly president/COO of BuzzFeed.

Chemists offer more evidence of RNA as the origin of life

first_img Citation: Chemists offer more evidence of RNA as the origin of life (2016, May 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-05-chemists-evidence-rna-life.html (Phys.org)—A team of chemists at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich has shown how the purines adenine and guanine can be synthesized easily and in reasonable yields, offering more evidence that RNA could have served as the origin of life on Earth. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes the process they took in looking for evidence that RNA could have been the first self-replicating molecule that eventually led to all life on our planet and what they found. Journal information: Science This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. For several years many scientists have supported the idea that life got its start on our planet due to a series of events that led to the creation of RNA molecules—it seems like a strong candidate because it is able to both store information and act as a catalyst. To bolster the theory, scientists have been trying to show under what conditions RNA might have come about based on the conditions that existed on early Earth. In the early going, researchers found it relatively easy to show how two of the four main building blocks in RNA, uracil and cytosine, could have come about, but showing how the other two, adenine and guanine, might have come about has been problematic. In this new effort the research team describes a scenario under with both might have come about given conditions at the time that life is believed to have got its start.The team started by extending prior research that had shown that a molecule called formamidopyrimidine can react under certain conditions to form purines—they discovered that adding acid to an amine (which the team showed could have come about very easily from plentiful carbon, nitrogen and hydrogen) allowed for a reaction that led to the formation of a purine and that it would easily bond with formic acid, which recent research has shown is plentiful on comets—that means it could have met with existing purines if a comet crashed into the planet at the right place. Once that happened, the resultant reactions would have led to forging bonds with sugars which would have resulted in the creation of large amounts of purines, including adenine and guanine—thus all of the necessary ingredients would have been in place for the creation of RNA molecules, setting the stage for the development of living organisms. This is a computer graphic of an RNA molecule. Credit: Richard Feldmann/Wikipediacenter_img © 2016 Phys.org Missing links brewed in primordial puddles? Explore further More information: S. Becker et al. A high-yielding, strictly regioselective prebiotic purine nucleoside formation pathway, Science (2016). DOI: 10.1126/science.aad2808AbstractThe origin of life is believed to have started with prebiotic molecules reacting along unidentified pathways to produce key molecules such as nucleosides. To date, a single prebiotic pathway to purine nucleosides had been proposed. It is considered to be inefficient due to missing regioselectivity and low yields. We report that the condensation of formamidopyrimidines (FaPys) with sugars provides the natural N-9 nucleosides with extreme regioselectivity and in good yields (60%). The FaPys are available from formic acid and aminopyrimidines, which are in turn available from prebiotic molecules that were also detected during the Rosetta comet mission. This nucleoside formation pathway can be fused to sugar-forming reactions to produce pentosides, providing a plausible scenario of how purine nucleosides may have formed under prebiotic conditions.last_img read more

Play it on loop

first_img‘Female Dj’s are no dolly birds!’ says DJane July Loop. Before this beauty hits Zerzura on 4 May, she gets candid with Millennium Post. Read on…Tell us a bit about yourself. Where did you start from?I am from Ukraine and working as a DJ from past 4 and a half years and have travelled across the world for work. I have played in countries like Switzerland, Italy, Poland, China, Korea, Turkey, Egypt and many more. I started my career as a DJ from my own city – Ukraine.   Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Where did the interest in music come in and the plans to become a DJ and go behind the console?I love listening to music and doing mixing. I was crazy about rock music since I was in my teens. I used to party a lot with my friends. One of my DJ friends taught me how to play, but at that time it was just a hobby. But now music has become a part of my life and I can’t live without music and crazy people on the dance floor.Tell us about what made it for you. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixMy never-ending love for music and the crazy grooving people on the dance floor. I mark a success for myself when I make the entire crowd in the venue dance like crazy on the beats I play.  I will always remember the big artists I have worked with like Tara Mcdonald, Armin van Buuren, Dj Ralvero, Ottawan etc. They really helped me to reach where I have.     Tell us about making it big – was it a long journey and a tough struggle?In the beginning of my career I used to play in small parties, usually a pre-party.  It wasn’t a long journey for me because I got my first break to work with a well known DJ from London. It was my first assignment abroad in Istanbul. I played warm up for him. After the show we worked together for almost one month and I at that moment understood what is really to be a DJ. Is it harder to be a female DJ as compared to your male counterparts?Female DJ’s were largely regarded as a gimmick, a ‘dolly bird’  to gaze at and to be taken seriously, as someone who might actually know how to present music, was almost an impossibility. People in various countries have different mindsets.  Some people don’t believe that a female DJ can play and take a party on a high. They look at me or my photo and think I am just a model standing near the console. I love facing the challenges and with these people I love breaking of that stereotype thoughts. Usually, after my party, people come to me and say: Wow you really can play!!! What are the essential ingredients needed to become a DJ?You should love music and have an ability of sensing the crowd’s music requirements. Sometimes the taste of the crowd is far different from yours, at that moment you need to change your preferences and need to adapt according to the crowd.Is this your first visit to India? What sort of reaction are you expecting from Delhi?It is my third trip to India. I have heard that the Delhi crowd is the most energetic crowd. I am expecting a lot from the Delhiites. I want to drive my crowd crazy with my beats. Earlier Delhi crowd was only open to Bollywood and commercial music. But now with the increase of music knowledge among Delhiites the preferences has been changed. People are better informed now and they also enjoy all the genres of music. Tell us what tops your playlist right now – the top tracks on it…The top tracks on my playlists are:  Baauer – Harlem Shake; Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Thrift Shop; Pitbull and Christina Aguilera – Feel This Moment.last_img read more

Setting the stage

first_imgBringing together the best of Indian theatre from the year gone by, the Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards and Festival (META) is staging some exceptional plays in the Capital at LTG Auditorium and Kamani Auditorium. The Festival is on till March 26.Dhou… The Wave by the nominated in the Best Director, Best Innovative Sound Design, Best Stage Design, Best Costume Design, Best Choreography, Best Actor in Supporting Role(Female), Best Ensemble category was performed on March 23. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Produced by Purbaranga and directed by Gunakar Dev Goswami,  Dhou, the wave is a powerful story of a lonely, wise old fisherman who conquers a magnificent fish, endures the heart breaking loss of it and rises gallantly above his defeat. Kaumudi, nominated in categories such as Best Director, Best Actor in a Lead Role (Male), Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Male), Best Original Script, Best Ensemble was about a rite of passage. Kaumudi has been inspired by two texts: Anand’s Malayalam novel Vyasam Vigneswaram and Jorge Luis Borges’ essay Blindness. Using the ‘moonlit timeless night’ when Krishna delivers his sermon to Arjuna as its central trope, this play explores the dynamics between an estranged father-son duo who play Eklavya’s ghost and Abhimanyu respectively, in a theatre, in late 1960’s Allahabad. The father, Satyasheel, who is a great actor and has almost lost his sight, is at his final three performances. Thus son, Paritosh, who grew up with the void of not having a father by his side, has come to challenge not only the father but also his entire school of thought. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixKaumudi is hinged on three central questions: Whose life is more valuable, an older or a younger person’s? Is personal ethic more important than public ethic? Does art have an unction, and do we make art or does art make us? It also holds up a mirror to it and questions theatre: Matthi, performed on March 24 is nominated in the Best Director, Best Stage Design, Best Light Design, Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Female), Best Original Script, Best Ensemble, Best Choreography categories.  Produced by Malayalakalanilayam and directed by Jino Joseph the play travels through the Kerala during 1970 – 80s with its political, social and cultural rigor and people’s collective movements. It portrays its cultural deterioration with migrant labors and the shift in the ideology and social harmony. Another play screened on March 24 was Still and Still Moving at the Kamani Auditorium Time. Nominated for Best Director, Best Original Script, Best Actor in a lead Role (Male), Best Light Design, the play is produced by Tadpole Repertory and directed directed by Neel Chaudhari.Still and Still Moving is set in North Delhi and Gurgaon. It is the story of Partho, a reclusive writer in his forties, and Adil, a young college student.
