Sunil strike earns draw for BPCL 18.8.2017 deccanherald.com
India international S V Sunil came to the rescue of Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL) as they managed to secure a 2-2 draw against All India Customs in their Pool B encounter in the Bengaluru Super Hockey League on Friday. The 28-year-old forward struck twice in the second period to help fancied BPCL avoid an embarrassing defeat after forward Hassan Basha had put Customs in front with a goal each in either of the halves. With the likes of goalkeeper Vikas Dahiya and Sunil in their starting line-up, BPCL was expected to easily beat Customs, who are struggling for consistency. Instead they met with a clever side intent on making most of their opportunities. After an initially period of to-and-fro, Customs surprisingly took the lead through Basha in the 24th minute. It was all BPCL after that as they toiled hard in search for an equaliser but the strong defence, marshalled well by Darshan, refused to budge and kept the Hari Prasad-coached side at bay. Customs led 1-0 by the stroke of half-time. BPCL ...

Three years of Sikka, and then what next? 18.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Business
Amidst continued friction between the board and the promoter founder, Infosys CEO and MD Vishal Sikka has decided to call quit at India's second largest IT company. The impact of the recent criticism of the company on Sikka was obvious in his resignation letter, assessed by DH. "Allegations that have been repeatedly proven false and baseless by multiple, independent investigations. But despite this, the attacks continue, and worse still, amplified by the very people from whom we all expected the most steadfast support in this great transformation. This continuous drumbeat of distractions and negativity over the last several months/quarters inhibits our ability to make positive change and stay focused on value creation," Sikka said in his letter. Joining from German multinational software corporation, Sikka took over as Infosys CEO and MD from SD Shibulal, one of the companys founders. A doctorate holder from Stanford University, Sikka set in motion the Vision 2020 for the company, with a focus on ...

Dhinakaran meets Sasikala, downplays expected AIADMK merger 18.8.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
 Downplaying the expected merger of the two AIADMK factions, sidelined AIADMK (Amma) leader T T V Dhinakaran on Friday said it would not last long. Speaking to reporters here after meeting party chief VK Sasikala at Parapana Agrahara Prison on her birthday, he asserted that the move was not a "setback" for him. He said it was unlike the 1989 unification of the party led by late J Jayalalithaa "which was natural". The AIADMK had split following the demise of founder leader M G Ramachandran in 1987. The two factions at present are led by Chief Minister K Palaniswami and rebel leader and former Chief Minister O Panneerselvam. Dhinakaran alleged "they (Palaniswami and Panneerselvam) are doing it for their self-interest to protect their position...that will not have longevity". He said the merger would not last long if it was done to "safeguard their posts, like a business agreement, leaving away cadres, out of selfishness". Dhinakaran said when the party merged under the leadership of Jayalalithaa in 1989, ...

Infosys war: Narayana Murthy was bitter over Vishal Sikka becoming CEO over V Balakrishnan: Sources 18.8.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Undignified comments, allegations of poor corporate governance, selective media leaks and continued inferences: phases that marked the aftermath of Vishal Sikka’s sudden departure conjures up recent memory of another dark chapter of country’s corporate world, the unceremonious exit of Cyrus Mistry as the head of the Tata group. Though not fully comparable, there are similarities between the two landmark events and corporate India would do well to learn the lessons from these two unfortunate happenings about how not to manage succession. “I want the new CEO to chart his own path to create better glory for Infosys without any interference from the founders,” said shareholder, quoting Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy’s speech in 2014. “While he talked of giving full independence to Vishal Sikka, his bitterness over the exit of V Balakrishnan, a top contender to the post of Chief Executive Officer, was palpable and jarring,” the shareholder who travelled to the Infosys AGM from Kolkata that year ...

Toxic froth from lake recedes, rain-hit areas recovering 18.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The citys famous Bellandur lake continued to spew toxic froth today, but it is reducing because of receding rains. After being pounded by a record-breaking downpour early this week, the city is on the road to recovery. "The lake still continues to spew toxic froth. Continues to fly, though it is not that nightmarish as it was during the torrential rainfall four days back. "It is reducing because of receding rains," Lakes Conservation Expert and resident of the area, Shalini Batra Sahni told PTI, here today. Incessant rains on August 14 and 15 had resulted in the increase of the lakes water levels and the formation of toxic froth. The rains had aggravated the situation with thick froth spilling on to the road nearby causing inconvenience to commuters driving along the stretch. "This, however, is not the scene today," she said. Sahni expressed fear about residents living around the lake developing disease by coming in contact with toxic froth flying around. After the National Green Tribunal (NGT) had ...
