Solomon Deksisa and Amane Gobena made it a double delight for Ethiopia in the USD 405,000 Tata Mumbai Marathon here on Sunday by clinching the respective mens and womens races. Twenty-two-year-old Deksisa broke away from the rest of the field at the 35-km mark and kept his nose ahead for the reminder of the 42.195 km mens event to lead a 1-2 finish for Ethiopia ahead of the 29-year-old compatriot Shumet Akalnaw. Deksisa clocked two hours, nine minutes and 34 seconds, off the course record of 2:08:35, while his compatriot Shumet crossed the finish line in 2:10:00 after being in hot pursuit of the lead runner over the last seven kilometres without being able to catch up. Kenyan Joshua Kipkorir, second last year, ended up third this year in 2:10:30. Gobena made the womens race her own to win by a comfortable margin and won in 2:25:49 ahead of defending champion Bornes Kitur of Kenya who clocked 2:28:48 with male pacer Bernard Soi of South Africa helping her maintain her speed.

Lucknow, January 21 Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Sunday that India had shown it could attack its enemies not only on its soil, but also if needed on a foreign territory. Singh's remarks came almost a week after the Indian Army carried out a "retaliatory action" against Pakistani troops, killing seven of their soldiers and injuring four others along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley should try to achieve the fiscal deficit target and take more steps to implement projects efficiently in the forthcoming Budget, noted US-based economist T N Srinivasan has suggested.

A scintillating century from Jos Buttler brought England a 16-run win and a one-day international series victory against Australia here on Sunday. The hosts, set 303 to win by England after winning the toss and choosing to bowl, were always struggling in their chase and eventually managed only 286 for six. The result gave England an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match ODI series, a remarkable turnaround after Australia had trounced them 4-0 in the Ashes Tests. England ODI captain Eoin Morgan said Buttler had engineered one of the best wins hed been part of. "Jos was probably the difference between the sides," he said. "On a two-paced wicket he paced it to perfection, played the anchor until about five or six overs out. This is one of the best wins from this group." Australias hopes largely rested with Steve Smith (45) and Mitchell Marsh (55), but both were dismissed at a crucial stage of the chase, with Smith falling to a contentious low-down catch by Buttler off the bowling of Mark ..

He said nearly 60 per cent of the satellite weight consists of onboard chemical fuel and by opting for electric power for manoeuvring in space the mass of the satellite will be reduced.
