Maria Sharapova's incredible rags-to-riches journey resumes in Stuttgart 26.4.2017 DNA: Money
From the shadow of Chernobyl's nuclear wasteland to international super-stardom and from penniless arrival in the United States, without a word of English, to a fortune of $200 million. It may sound like the stuff of Hollywood dreams, but the story of Maria Sharapova is a testament to the power of one individual to make it, whatever the odds, whatever the controversy, whatever people think. On Wednesday in Stuttgart, the 30-year-old will return from a 15-month doping suspension to open the next chapter. When she takes to the court to face Roberta Vinci, it will be to the consternation of many opponents and the relief, albeit privately, of a women's tour left flagging by the absence of Serena Williams, probably Sharapova's only serious rival in the arena-filling business. Sharapova shot to international fame as a giggly 17- year-old Wimbledon winner in 2004 -- the third youngest player to conquer the All England Club's famous grass courts. She would go on to win the Australian and US Opens while claiming ...

Maharashtra government seeks clarity on cost of power from Jaitapur N-plant 25.4.2017 DNA: Top News
The Maharashtra state government has sought clarity from French officials and the French company EDF on the cost of power produced from the Jaitapur nuclear power plant. It has even said that it will purchase power from the project only if it is affordable, said government officials. The state has made its stand clear last week during the meeting between Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and a delegation led by Alexandre Ziegler, the French envoy. The state government's position on the power purchase is revealing as work on the proposed nuclear power plant is yet to begin even after years of protest from local farmers and fishermen. The Jaitapur nuclear power plant is proposed to have a 9,900MW capacity, making it the world's biggest nuclear power park once operational. As per the original agreement on the nuclear plant, the state government was to get 3,000 MW from the plant. But, with several delays and cost overruns, the state government does not want to buy power at an exorbitant cost. During the ...

'I didn't hide anything about pacts with India': Bangladesh PM Hasina 13.4.2017 DNA: Top News
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said today she hid nothing about the agreements she signed with India, rejecting her predecessor Khaleda Zia's accusations that she failed to secure Dhaka's interests and gained "nothing, but assurances". Zia, the leader of Bangladesh's main political opposition party BNP, has criticised the four-day India visit of Hasina, that concluded this week, during which the two countries inked 22 agreements including in defence and civil nuclear sectors. India announced a USD 4.5 billion Line of Credit to Bangladesh and an additional assistance of USD 500 million for its military procurement. But the two countries could not sign the long-pending Teesta waters sharing pact primarily due to opposition from West Bengal, through which the river passes. Zia yesterday said that Hasina brought "nothing from India, but assurances". She said the visit was Bangladesh government's failure to secure its interests from its stronger neighbour, claiming Hasina's Awami League government ...
