Modern day marriages fixed on social media platforms like Facebook are bound to fail, remarked Justice J.B. Pardiwala of Gujarat High Court while dealing with a petition on domestic violence and dowry demand. The court disposed of the case of domestic violence and advised the couple to dissolve their marriage and think about future avenues in life. Justice Pardiwala was hearing the petition filed by Anitaben Shah, whose son Jaideep had married to one Fansi Shah after they first met in virtual world Facebook and subsequently met in person and got married in 2015.The petition was filed to quash charges of domestic violence and dowry demand levelled by Fansi Shah against her husband, in-laws and brother -in law. In the judgement delivered on January 24, Justice Pardiwala observed that within two months of their marriage, serious problems cropped up between the couple. “They got married and within two months thereafter problems cropped up in their marital life. I should make note of one fact that the parties did try to settle the matter, however, the settlement could not be arrived at,” the judge observed.“This is one of the those modern marriages fixed on Facebook, therefore, bound to fail,” Pardiwala noted, asking the couple to mutually divorce and start a new chapter in life. The court quashed the FIR filed by Fansi against her in-laws while allowing investigation against Jaideep, her husband. The court held that primarily, the respondent number 2 (Fansi) had problems with her husband and yet her in-laws were arraigned as accused in her FIR that she filed in Rajkot after she left her husband’s house. “I am still of the view that the parties should explore the possibility of settlement and put an end to the marriage with consent. Both the sides are young. Once the marriage is dissolved, they can think about their future avenues in life”, the court noted in its order.

We are going to play the next match in Brighton and we are going to play full, not with considered options or playing with more caution.”The same three points are in Brighton that are in Liverpool and we are going to play first in Brighton. It’s a tough match and we will need every player with 100 per cent focus to do everything on the pitch to win.”I was speaking with Koscielny about the possibility of playing against Burnley and he said ‘not today’ because he was very tired after two matches in a week, so I decided for him not to be with the group. He said, ‘I’m not Matteo Guendouzi, Matteo is 19 and I’m 33!’.”

Hyderabad: Senior Congress leader Marri Shashidhar Reddy Friday sought removal of the Telangana Congress chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy, terming his leadership as a “failure”. The demand of the four-time MLA and ex-Minister comes at a time when the Telangana unit of the Congress is facing a crisis of sorts after putting up a dismal performance in the Assembly elections last December. Congress won only 19 seats in the 119-member Assembly, and since early March as many 11 of those MLAs have announced their decision to cross over to the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi, headed by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ There already talk in political circles that if two more Congress MLAs switch sides, they may decide to merge the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) with that of TRS which also means the Congress would lose its tag of main opposition. Speaking to PTI, Shashidhar Reddy, also a former Vice-Chairman of National Disaster Management Authority, called for total overhaul of the party setup in Telangana, which is “long overdue and absolutely necessary”. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K “We have not focused on the organisation at the grassroots level; building the organisation at all levels is something which has been lacking,” the son of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Marri Channa Reddy said. Shashidhar Reddy alleged the Congress in Telangana, had missed a lot of opportunities to take on the TRS government, particularly to highlight its “glaring failures and corruption.” As a result, the party has not been able to gain the confidence of the people, according to him. “It’s a clear case of failure of the (party) leadership in the state,” Shashidhar Reddy said hitting out at the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee President and demanding his removal. “We have not been able to give that kind of confidence to the people,” he said and alleged the party’s agitations against the TRS government have been “only on paper”. “There are many sections of society who feel threatened or let down; if we don’t stand by them and gain their confidence, they will not trust you,” he said. Uttam Kumar Reddy should have been made to step down “long back” as he has failed to lead the party with single-minded objective of winning elections and carry everybody together, he said. “We have failed to win the confidence of the people. It’s a sum total of all the failures. We have not been able to take on the government, on all their shortcomings, failed promises,” Shashidhar Reddy added. Asked if he was ready to assume charge as TPCC President if the party’s central leadership gives him the responsibility, he said: “Yes, absolutely”.
The Big Ten relinquished a 3-0 lead in the Challenge early Tuesday night, and eventually needed OSU’s victory to finalize the Big Ten’s first win in 11 tries. Turner said it has been frustrating to constantly hear about ACC’s dominance over the Big Ten and the rest of the country. In the second half it was all OSU. The Buckeyes forced FSU to play fast with their smaller lineup and pushed a lead to more than 20. Florida State fought back within two, but that was the closest the Seminoles would come all night. OSU opened its lead back up to 11 at halftime with key shots and strong defense. “That’s a championship right there. It’s huge,” Turner said jokingly about the win. “You can’t say this is the biggest night of our lives, [though]. We’ve had some pretty big nights.” The game played out the same way the Big Ten/ACC Challenge had early on. Like the rest of the Big Ten, OSU garnered an early lead, but just as its conference had done, the Bucks left the door open. But when in doubt, the Buckeyes and their conference pulled it out. Junior Jon Diebler used guard Evan Turner’s penetration to set up big shots for three. He knocked down six of 12, scoring 22 on the night. Turner again set the pace for OSU, immediately penetrating and scoring within seconds of the tip-off. Effective penetration to the basket is something Turner excels at even though he was unable to utilize in OSU’s only loss of the season, to North Carolina. “Our penetration and our shooters were really amazing tonight and we really complement each other well,” Turner said. “That was key for us.” His 25 points on 10-17 shooting led the Buckeyes. He also added 13 rebounds and five assists. The Ohio State men’s basketball team triumphed over Florida State, 77-64, Wednesday in the final game of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.The Buckeyes put the final nail in the ACC’s coffin, giving the Big Ten the deciding win and its first ever victory in the Challenge’s 11-year history. Turner joked earlier in the week that if the Challenge was tied at five games apiece, a victory would call for confetti and cutting down the nets. No nets were removed after Big Ten’s first ever win over the ACC, but a ton of pressure finally was.
After dropping two of three games to Michigan State last weekend, the Ohio State baseball team (18-8, 4-2 Big Ten) is hoping to get back on track for its third Big Ten weekend series as it travels to face Minnesota. OSU coach Greg Beals is hoping his team can bounce back from last weekend’s series. “We had an opportunity to take the Michigan State series and it’s disappointing we blew it,” Beals said. “Good thing is, we have games this week to get back to winning.” OSU has been trying to work on its winning mindset for a few weeks. “It’s just the mentality of all eight innings, man,” said senior shortstop Kirby Pellant. “The pitching has been there all year and the defense has been there all year and finally the bats are starting to come around.” The Buckeyes beat Youngstown State Tuesday night in Columbus in a 3-0 shutout and took down Miami (Ohio) in a 1-0 shutout Wednesday night. Beals said this week’s games were important for the Buckeyes in preparing for more conference play. “The week games get our guys a lot of at-bats,” Beals said. “They help position players get in the groove and they allow our pitchers to get extended innings.” The Minnesota Golden Gophers are 17-12 and 2-1 in Big Ten play on the year. Minnesota redshirt junior infielder Dan Olinger is a guy to keep an eye on for the Golden Gophers, batting .314 with 14 RBIs and a .984 fielding percentage. Junior pitcher Tom Windle has 1.44 ERA with 45 strikeouts and a 4-2 record in 50 innings pitched. Windle has been named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week twice this season. Minnesota will be opening the brand new Siebert Field for this series, having played its previous home games at the Metrodome. An OSU series win brings the team that much closer to capturing the conference title. While it’s still early in the season for talk of the Big Ten Championship, it has been on some of the players’ minds for weeks. “When I was a true freshman, that was the last time we won the Big Ten Championship, so I know what that feels like,” said OSU redshirt senior outfielder Joe Ciamacco. “I’m putting everything out there for the team this year. I want us to win this season. I want to bring back the winning tradition to Ohio State. We haven’t had it here in a while.” OSU is set to take the field against the Golden Gophers at 4:05 p.m. Friday at Siebert Field in Minneapolis.
