Manchester: Rain forced India to practice indoors yesterday in an optional training session ahead of their match against West Indies at Old Trafford here tomorrow. Skipper Virat Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Vijay Shankar and Ravindra Jadeja were the only ones to arrive for the indoor session, with the rest of the team members hitting the gym at the team hotel.

He bowled under the watchful eyes of physio Patrick Farhat. Bowling coach Bharat Arun also kept a close eye on Bhuvneshwar’s actions. India captain Virat Kohli during a training session yesterday.

Seventeen hours later, his family received news of his death in a road accident there. The incident that shook Rohan and his mother, Jessy, has also raised questions on the unorganised two-wheeler expeditions to Leh-Ladakh, which are turning out to be more a ruthless business and less an adventure sport. The incident is an eye-opener and calls for regulators and law-enforcment agencies to tighten the noose on a flourishing industry that pays little heed to safety. According to his family, Jojy was passionate about biking and had always dreamt of going on a motor cycle expedition to Leh. He had no health issues and had an active lifestyle.

Hybrid: A thing made by combining two different elements. To explain the meaning further, Google will give you the example of a mule, i.e. "the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse," but the dish called Chia Shetty's ghee roast pav — which by combining the Bombay pav and Mangalorean ghee roast, amalgamates chef Shriya Shetty's roots with her natural Bombay-ness — is perhaps a more delicious specimen.

Fitness expert Samir Jaura conducts as many as 40 tests ahead of taking up any project. A battery of tests enables trainers to decipher pre-existing deficiencies that actors may possess, in turn enabling them to tackle them during the course of the transformation. These concerns may vary from vitamin deficiencies to undiagnosed underlying problems, like hormonal imbalances. Most experts agree that under supervision, a variety of aspects are addressed, and the process isn't gauged under the microscopic view of kilos lost or gained, only. Bone health is maintained by providing calcium supplements when necessary. Vitamin E supplements and collagen boosters are added to ensure that the skin and hair don't look pale or brittle on screen.

In a world that keeps inching steadily towards an environmental catastrophe, can we afford to have a limited number of conservationists fighting a battle on everyone's behalf? Or, should teachers, doctors, engineers, lawyers, artistes and other professionals be their own environmentalists?

Her immersive theatre company, Visual Respiration, had produced performances on gender, memory, food and traditional games, but not so much on the environment.

Sex toys in Mumbai: The pleasure is all yours, so what's the fuss about?

News / Mid-Day/ News  
In stark contrast to the hush-hush tones of conversations concerning sex, south Mumbai's Fort area sees an audacious sale of sex toys, complete with prominent displays. Motorised and non-motorised toys adorn the footpath stalls right opposite a court. A visit by team mid-day to this area confirmed the rampant sale of sex toys there. The vendors claim to have been selling these banned products for the past 40 years. The prominent display of sex toys, vendors at Fort said, is to make it easy and comfortable for customers to approach us. "Both male and female customers buy these sex toys from us. Some of them to arouse their partners and some to gift their friends, especially the newly-married ones," a retailer told the mid-day team. "Ye sab bikta hai [All this sells]," a retailer said when asked what these toys were. Asked if no one objects to such display, he denied it. The products were priced in the range of R300 to 400.

I have been dating someone for the past three months, but it's complicated because he is still with someone else. They have been trying to break up, but it doesn't seem to be happening. He is not happy with her, and wants to be with me, but for some reason they can't seem to end their relationship and I end up feeling as if I am stuck in a situation I can't control. I sometimes feel as if he is stringing me along, but then I feel guilty because he tells me he is trying his best. I am torn between trying to support him through this difficult time and asking him to do the right thing and be with me. How do I deal with this?Relationships are built on trust, and it sounds as if the two of you need to do a bit of work to strengthen that aspect. If he isn't ending his relationship with his girlfriend, why can't you choose to be with him only when he is single? Isn't this situation unfair not just to you but to his girlfriend as well, assuming she doesn't know about your presence in his life?..
