God’s Grace: When rower Bhagwan quit journalism to support alcoholic father

first_imgBy Bharat Sharma Palembang, Aug 23 (PTI) Heart-wrenching stories often become a part of sporting folklore and Indian Army rower Bhagwan Singh’s journey from Moga to Palembang is as fascinating as it could be. In 2012, a 19-year-old Bhagwan was pursuing BA journalism (2nd year) in Chandigarh. Who knows he might have been covering the 2018 Asian Games but fate and the need for financial assistance to support an alcoholic father, forced him to put the pen down and pick up the oar with the backing of Indian Army. His life changed completely. After reaching the lightweight double sculls finals at the Asian Games, Bhagwan narrated his story to PTI. “My father is still very sick. His one lung is not functioning anymore. I was happy doing journalism but my father had to stop driving trucks after being diagnosed with tuberculosis,” Bhagwan, who has qualified for the lightweight double sculls final alongside Rohit Kumar, said. “He became an alcoholic during his days on the road. I am just glad that he is around. He is in bad shape at the moment,” he added. While the door on journalism was shut, the tall and lean Bhagwan was spotted as a potential rowing talent after he joined the Indian Army in 2012 and in no time he was at the hub of the water sport, the Army Rowing Node in Pune. It has been his home since then though his paper posting is at 114 Armoured Engineers regiment. “With the issues we had back home, rowing gave me an outlet. It felt like home away from home,” he said.advertisement Out of the 34 rowers at the Asian Games, 33 are from the Indian Army. “There cannot be rowing in India without Indian Army. Even the one who is not a soldier is a young cadet. He will be in the Army soon. We are very well taken care of in Pune,” the initial sadness in his voice was replaced by hope and happiness. Earlier, the Indian team used to train in Hyderabad but now the base has been shifted to Pune. Bhagwan has a real shot at a medal tomorrow and if that happens, it will mark a complete turnaround in the life of the 25-year-old, who was initially clueless after his father fell sick years ago. He has got three siblings including a brother, who is also a soldier. Bhagwan, who has also been a steeplechase runner, can only thank god for his remarkable journey so far. “I have seen the worst of times. I can only thank God for being here today, representing India. Thanks to the Army, I can also take care of my ageing parents. The money is not enough, considering I have my own diet expenses but when I think of the times I have gone through, this should be a cakewalk,” one could sense an army man’s resolve. Bhagwan also went to Rio Olympics as a standby for Dattu Baban Bhokanal, who was the sole Indian rower to qualify for the Summer Games. PTI BS KHS PM PMlast_img read more

Deepak Talwar sent to 7day CBI custody in aviation scam

first_imgNew Delhi: The CBI was on Friday granted seven-day custody of aviation lobbyist Deepak Talwar by a special court here after the court denied him anticipatory bail in the matter earlier the same day. The probe agency had sought custody of Talwar in connection with a UPA-era aviation scam, two years after the agency had registered an FIR in the case.The lobbyist, who was already in judicial custody, lodged at Tihar Jail, in a PMLA case, is the first person the agency will question in custody, in connection with the case. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The case pertains to allegations that during senior Congress leader Praful Patel’s time as the Civil Aviation Minister, several profitable air routes and timings were given to private foreign airlines, causing huge losses to the national carrier. While neither Talwar nor any other person is named in the CBI’s FIR, the agency had moved an application in a special court here, seeking custody of the aviation lobbyist, who is also named as an accused in the Air Asia scam and the Advantage India NGO case. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KAs Talwar was produced in court on Friday morning, his counsel moved an anticipatory bail plea before special Judge Anil Kumar Sisodia, who denied the plea and dismissed the application after hearing arguments. The CBI then presented an arrest memo, with the court deciding to announce whether Talwar will be sent to police custody or judicial custody after lunch. The defense had argued that the probe agency’s arrest memo did not fulfill all requirements as prescribed by the Supreme Court of India. However, granting CBI Talwar’s custody, the court added that he can meet his lawyers and family members between 5 to 6 pm on alternate days, rejecting the request to meet family members every day. Special judge Sisodia also said that a prescription for his daily medicines must be provided to the CBI’s investigating officer, with a medical check-up to be done every 48 hours. He is to appear before the court again on August 2 at 2 pm. The case that CBI has sought Talwar’s custodial interrogation for pertains to a PIL filed in the Apex court in 2012, which alleged large-scale corruption in the Civil Aviation Ministry during the UPA regime. The Supreme Court had then directed the central agency to register cases to probe these allegations, after which three FIRs and one Preliminary Enquiry were registered by the CBI. This case alleges that “foreign airlines were given unrestricted entry into India and major routes were given to them without taking any reciprocal benefits for Air India”. The CBI goes on to allege that despite warnings of huge losses to the national carrier, Civil Aviation Ministry officials had dishonestly given pecuniary benefits to private, domestic and foreign airlines. Specifically, the CBI alleged that up to four international air routes and nine domestic air routes were awarded to private airlines such as Jet Airways, Kingfisher Airlines, Go Air, Indigo, Spicejet, Paramount Airways, and others, while Air India withdrew its services from these routes. Taking cognizance of this FIR, the ED had registered a money-laundering probe against Talwar, who was earlier questioned and arrested by the financial probe agency in connection with the case. The ED’s probe had revealed that Talwar was paid Rs 272 crore to secure air traffic rights for airlines such as Emirates, Qatar Airways, and Air Arabia. The ED had also questioned Patel with regards to this case, after allegedly finding a link between him and Talwar.last_img read more
