    New Delhi, Aug 19 (IANS) The secularism of Maharaja Ranjit Singh (1780-1839) needs to be stuided in the current context for the manner in which he brought together a collection of warring misls (confederacies) to create a Sikh Empire that stretched from the Khyber Pass in the west to western Tibet in the east, and from Mithankot in the south to Kashmir in the north, says US-based poet, playwright and commentator Sarbpreet Singh in a new book.

    By Sandeep Bamzai

    New Delhi, July 30 (IANS)
    There is flutter in the dovecotes. Sunil Gavaskar is angry and disgusted with the whole World Cup fiasco and the role played by the selection committee since. Furious at the conduct of the MSK Prasad-helmed selection committee, he reckons its lack of stature impedes its progress and ability to take decisions. He argued that they selected the team for West Indies without first having a meeting to select the captain, which begs the question of whether Virat Kohli is the captain of the team at his or the selection committee's pleasure. These are pertinent points being made by one of the game's eminents, someone whose heart has always beat for Indian cricket.
