Ex-Prez Patil for combat sports training to girls at young age

first_imgMumbai, Apr 3 (PTI) Emphasising on physical training aspect to bring women empowerment, former President Pratibha Patil today said it is important to impart martial arts or combat sports training to girls at a young age.”Now, time has come when we should start giving Judo and Karate training to girls right from school days. This will instill a sense of self-protection and security among them. There have been so many cases when young girls averted untoward situations,” Patil said addressing a function organised by Vidarbha Vaibhav Mandir Trust here.”People say we need to change our mentality towards the women…yes I too say so. But, I also say if one really needs to change the mentality then start educating your children at an early age and tell them how to behave and respect girls and women,” she said.Underlining the struggle women face in day-to-day life, she said, “Women face taboo and superstitions even today which hinder their way to success despite the fact they are dynamic in so many roles they play and return in manifold to the society whatever they get from it.”On the occasion, Patil presented Vidarbha Gaurav to IAS officer Bhagyashree Banayat from Amaravati district, entrepreneur Pratima Raut.Noted historian and author Purushottam Nagpure was conferred with Jeevan Gaurav award for his contribution to Marathi literature in he past six decades.

Larry Fitzgerald caught passes Thursday from a guy

first_imgLarry Fitzgerald caught passes Thursday from a guy that would be everyone’s consensus pick to be the Arizona Cardinals quarterback in 2011. It wasn’t Kevin Kolb, Kyle Orton or even Marc Bulger. It was Kurt Warner.Here is where most people would blow things out of proportion and start rumors of his return to the NFL as the Cardinals’ savior. Not us. We know better … thanks to Warner’s Twitter account.

Unfortunately in the real world he walked away to spend time with his family and to start a broadcasting career.Would Warner coming back fix all the Cards problems? Probably. Too bad it won’t happen.Regardless of if you told us not to get any ideas Kurt, we have and it looks like Fitzgerald, Beanie and Rhodes may have also. Too bad their nostalgic thoughts about how it use to be and how far the Cards have fallen in just one year. Not optimistic ones of you coming back. D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Just because Kurt told us all not to read too much into his return to the football field, that didn’t stop current Cardinals from at the very least giving the former signal caller a hard time.Fitzgerald, running back Beanie Wells and safety Kerry Rhodes made sure to tweet Warner and let him know it peaked their interest.last_img read more
