A day after the All Indian Chess Federation (AICF) announced that world champion Viswanathan Anand and Koneru Humpy have pulled out of the Asian Games, the winner of two gold medals of 2006 Doha Asian Games, Humpy minced no words in saying that given a chance she would have loved to represent India.
"I have not pulled out of Asian Games but denied an entry. I wish the federation could have shown some respect to international players and their prior engagements," an upset Humpy said.
"Playing for India is always the top most priority and I would have loved to play for country and win a gold medal.
"The Indian Chess Federation wanted me to attend a training camp before the Asian Games but they should have looked at my international commitments and taken my performance into account before rejecting my case," the world number two added.
Humpy, the highest ranked Indian in the world, has an international rating of 2593 points and is behind Judith Polgar of Hungary.
"All my appeals to the federation have fallen flat and that left me really disappointed. What can I do if the parent chess body is not willing to give a chance to the defending champion?
"I have also written to India's sports minister MS Gill but I am yet to get a reply," Humpy said.
Pentela Harikrishna and Dronavalli Harika find place in the Indian Chess Team announced for the Asian Games 2010.

The San Francisco-based Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), a leading civil liberties group, will confer the 2010 Pioneer Award on researcher Hari Prasad, who was recently released on bail after having been jailed for his security work on electronic voting machines.
“Hari Krishna Prasad Vemuru is a security researcher in India who recently revealed security flaws in India's paperless electronic voting machines. He has endured jail time, repeated interrogations, and ongoing political harassment to conduct the first independent security review of India's electronic voting system,” said an EFF statement.
“Prasad spent a year trying to convince election officials to complete such a review, but they insisted that the government-made machines were ‘perfect' and ‘tamperproof.' “Instead of blindly accepting the government's claim, Prasad's international team discovered serious flaws that could alter national election results.
“Prasad hopes to help his country build a transparent and verifiable voting system,” the statement said. The EFF's Pioneer Awards recognise leaders who are extending freedom and innovation on the electronic frontier.
Mr. Prasad is the first Indian to receive the prestigious award.
The other three winners are transparency activist Steven Aftergood; public domain scholar James Boyle; legal blogger Pamela Jones and the website Groklaw. The award ceremony will be held at 7:30 pm, November 8, at the 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco.
Awarded every year since 1992, EFF's Pioneer Awards recognize leaders who are extending freedom and innovation on the electronic frontier. Past honorees include World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee, security expert Bruce Schneier, and the Mozilla Foundation and its chairman Mitchell Baker, among many others.

The film mainly deals with three-decade-old faction feuds in Anantapur district portraying the violence unleashed by the warlords. While Shatrughan Sinha plays NTR, Vivek Oberoi plays the role of former minister Paritala Ravi, who was allegedly assassinated by hired killer Moddu Seenu. Another character was that of Paritala's arch rival Maddela Cheruvu Suri, who spent several years in jail for his involvement in the Jubilee Hills bomb blast case in which Ravi escaped an attempt on his life.
TDP MLC Y V B Rajendra Prasad was vocal in condemning Varma's attempt to showcase NTR as a man who encouraged violence. "Varma is a sadist. He has no respect for human relations and values. He must delete the scenes that defame NTR and hurt his fans and party workers,'' he said and warned they would take up a stir against the screening of the film if the scenes were not deleted.
"We cannot digest certain dialogues about NTR as he did nothing to encourage factionists when he was CM,'' NTR fans association leader Darapaneni Srinath said. TDP MLA Vallabhaneni Vamsi called the bluff of Varma. "Camera in his hands is like keeping a stone in a mad man's lap,'' he said. Curiously, a majority of TDP activists (read Kammas) in the coastal region enjoyed the film for showcasing Kamma warlord Paritala Ravi in Reddy-dominant Rayalaseema region as a hero.
TDP activists who were livid with the portrayal of NTR in poor light in the film, staged protests in several parts of the state. Though no violent incidents were reported from Krishna, the native district of both NTR and the director, angry fans and party workers ransacked a theatre in Karimnagar, stopped the screening in two theatres in Vizag and tore flexis, cutouts and banners of the film at some places. TDP workers burnt effigies of Varma in Vijayawada, Karimnagar, Anantapur and other areas.
Police lathicharged TDP cadres for staging protests at a theatre in Anantapur and took 30 activists into custody in Srikakulam. Uttarandhra Parirakshana Samithi activists shouted slogans against Varma and demanded an apology from the director for showing NTR as a leader who encouraged factional violence.
Krishna district TDP chief Devineni Umamaheswara Rao said Varma had no right to portray a great leader like NTR in poor light. "We will teach him a lesson when he visits the district,'' he warned.
`Rakta Charitra' -- both in Telugu and Hindi -- was released in 250 theatres across the state. The Tamil version would be released in Tamil Nadu later. The movie in Telugu and Hindi is being made in two parts. The second part would be released on Nov. 19.
Paritala Ravi's widow Paritala Sunita, MLA and TDP leader, and Suri, a Congress leader now, and their followers and close aides did not react. Curiously, Varma who boasted that he would watch the film sitting among the audience in Anantapur, developed cold feet and did not turn up.
Earlier, in the wake of threat calls and protests by several organisations and political parties, police maintained tight vigil at all the three theatres in Anantapur where the cinema was exhibited. The film could not be shown in Penukonda and Dharmavaram as the film reels did not reach in time, while it got delayed in Hindupur. The film could not be released in eight theatres in the district.

In less time than it takes to read this magazine, a simple surgery can give a blind person her eyesight back.
A miracle? Absolutely. But Dr. Perumalsamy Namperumalsamy, 70, and his army of cataract fixers at India’s Aravind Eye Care Hospitals make it look easy. The surgery has been around for decades, but the chairman of Aravind Eye Hospital which was founded in 1976 with the goal of bringing assembly-line efficiency to health care, figured out how to replace cataracts safely and quickly: 3.6 million surgeries to date, a new one every 15 minutes.
Equally brilliant is the business model: the 30% of patients who can afford to pay subsidize free or low-cost care for the 70% who are poor. “All people have a right to sight,” Namperumalsamy says. As I write these words after a long day spent in the slums in India, I cannot tell you how much admiration I have for him and his team. I’ll say he is the right person to give sight for the blind.

The proposed port would be set up over 3,000 acres at Rosulpur in East Midnapore district. The project will provide direct employment to 1,000 people.
Amma Lines chairman & managing director Vijay Papa Rao met the WBIDC managing director Subrata Gupta and the state industry secretary Dipankar Mukhopadhyay recently and gave the proposal for setting up the deep sea port, in two phases. Rao said as per the proposal, Amma Lines will have 74% stake in the joint venture, while the West Bengal government will hold the remaining 26% through WBIDC.
A memorandum of understanding will be signed between Amma Lines and WBIDC next month, following which the company will submit a detailed project report to WBIDC.
As per the initial agreement, WBIDC will enter into a long-term lease pact with Amma Lines for setting up the deep sea port project.
In the first phase, the draft length of the proosed port would be 12 metres and it will have four berths, two each for handling containerised and bulk cargo.
In the second stage, the draft would be increased to 17 metres and it will have 10 additional berths.
The state industry secretary ruled out the possibility over any trouble for getting land for the project, as there no requirement for land acquisition.
Amma Lines has technical expertise through which the land will be available from the reclamation process, he said.
“The entire 3,000 acre plot would be set up by the land and silt collected through the land reclamation process. There is also a proposal to connect the port both through rail and road to the sub-divisional town of Contai.”
The second seeded pair, Jwala and Ashwini overpowered the top seeded Singaporean duo 21-16, 21-19 on Thursday, Oct 14 to pocket the 37th gold for India.
Getting past the initial nervousness and struggle, the Indian badminton beauties clinched the first game 21-16. The second game, as the score shows, was a closely-fought one but did not seem to deter Jwala and Ashwini from their final destination - the winner pedestal.
With this emphatic victory, Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa etched their names in the history books as the athletes who won the first badminton women's doubles gold for India.
The duo downed Singapore's dreaded duo of Gao Ming and Yang Zi 9-11, 12-10, 11-4, 5-11, 11-8. Grinning from ear to ear, the champion said, “Thankfully we got gold. I can stop weeping now. I couldn't even practice properly before the match as each time I played a shot, the points I lost in the singles came back to haunt me.”
The Indian pair went all out against Singapore. The loss of the first game by two points did not affect their play as they went on to win the second game 12-10. “Saha supported me throughout as I was a little down because of the loss in the morning,” said Sharath, still holding his medal close to his heart. “By the second game, I got into the groove and started hitting hard.”
The third one was a cracker. Cushioned by a 7-0 lead, the duo forced the Singaporeans into making errors, especially at the net, eventually taking the game 12-10.
It was a neck-and-neck fight until 8-8 when Saha broke the Singaporeans’ service to go a point up and held on to his service to pick up the last two points and wrap up the proceedings.
“Even after losing a couple of points towards the end of the game, we didn't try to defend. We went all out for the kill and didn't lax at any point in time,” said Sharath.
Earlier, Sharath lost to Singapore’s Yang Zi 11-9, 8-11, 11-7, 7-11, 11-7, 5-11, 9-11.
