Chennai, Aug 5 (PTI) Noted athletics coach Satyanarayana, mentor of T Mariyappan, who won a gold in the Rio Paralympics last year, says being recommended for the prestigious Dronacharya Award is a recognition not for him alone but for para-athletes too. “I am happy not only for myself, but even for my students too. It is because of their success, I have been chosen for the award,” he told PTI from Bengaluru. Mariyappan had been recommended for the Arjuna Award a couple of days ago, which Satyanarayana said was a good thing to happen for para-athletics. “Mariyappans gold in Rio brought me to the limelight. Other students of mine like H N Girisha, a silver medallist at the Paralympic Games in London recently and Varun Bhati won a bronze in the mens high jump T-42 category in Rio, have given me a lot of cheer. I am happy that Mariyappan has been selected for the Arjuna Award, it is a boost for para-athletes,” he said. A former 1,500-metres runner, who has taken part in international events, Satyanarayana was an administrator with Karnataka Amateur Athletics Association (KAAA) before taking up coaching. “I moved to coaching from administration as I felt I could not give my best. Moreover, since I thought I would be better off training and motivating athletes, I took up the job of coaching athletes. I am enjoying it and it is wonderful to work with para-athletes,” he said. “From the days when I sold flowers in Shimoga (now Shivamoga) to taking up athletics and representing India in international meets to a coach, it has been a good journey,” he said of his humble beginnings and his subsequent role as a trainer. “I cant say how happy I am to be recommended for the Dronacharya award. However, it has not happened because of my hard work alone. A lot of people have been behind this. I have to be grateful to the people of Shimoga, my students and many others for the good things that have happened to me,” he said. “The award increases my responsibility. My desire is to see Mariyappan, Girisha and Bhati train hard and win medals at the 2020 Paralympics,” he said. Satyanarayana also said that J M Shawad, one of his trainees, had a lot of potential, and tipped him to win medals in the future. “I get a lot of satisfaction coaching athletes. My small help has enabled people like Girisha, Mariyappan, Bhati win medals in world-level events. I hope to continue my contribution to Indian sport, especially para-athletics,” he signed off.

Speculations on Samsung Galaxy S IV has hit new heights as the reports of Samsung confirming the arrival of new flagship handset emerged.The latest reports suggest that the successor of Samsung Galaxy S3 is in the pipeline. Rumours on Galaxy S IV, which have been doing the rounds since last summer, seems to be ringing true after theSamsung Lebanon on Facebook responded to a query saying that “The Galaxy SIV won’t be released before May 2013.” It added later “What we said is only trivial since all Galaxy S series are released between late April and Early May, yet there’s no way for anyone to know the exact release date.”Although this has made it clear that the company will not launch the much-anticipated Galaxy S IV before May, the response had fuelled the speculations that the company has its next flagship phone in the bag. Meanwhile, an image which is said to be Samsung Galaxy S IV has hit the net. The image, which appears more or less similar to its predecessor Galaxy S III, was apparently sent by an insider at Samsung to the technology Blog SamMobile.According to SamMobile, the leaked image of Galaxy S IV revealed that, “The device will use on-screen buttons as there is no home-button present on the device (Finally), the bezel around the device is much thinner and the device features a large display.”The rumours suggest that the device will have 4.99 inch Super AMOLED FULL HD display with 1080p and will be powered by Exynos 5450 Quad-Core CPU clocked at 2.0GHz. It is also said that the device will have unbreakable display. The speculations have been rife that the device will boast of 13 Megapixel Rear Facing Camera and 2 Megapixel Front Facing Camera along with 2GB RAM.”We can’t 100% confirm if this is indeed the Galaxy S IV but the picture he sent us looks really sharp and doesn’t look fake at all. The design of the device looks also very similar to the design of the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Premier, which makes this picture more authentic,” said SamMobile.
US-based global office furniture major Herman Miller on Wednesday opened its hi-tech plant at Bidadi on the city’s outskirts to make designer chairs in India for the country’s growing domestic market.”As India is one of our fastest growing markets in Asia, we have set up a production facility at Bidadi to make designer products like chairs to our customers faster,” Herman Miller Asia Pacific vice-president Jeremy Hocking told reporters here.Bidadi is about 40km from Bengaluru on the state highway towards Mysuru.The Michigan-headquartered $2.2-billion global firm operates in over 100 countries worldwide, with production facilities in the US, Britain, China and Italy and sells its products and services through a global dealer network.”We have chosen Bidadi for the plant as it’s strategically located to reach target markets in Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune, besides Sri Lanka for exports, as proximity reduces product lead-time,” Hocking said on the occasion, but declined to mention how much the company had invested in the facility.The company’s India facility is the third in the region (Asia Pacific) with other two being at Ningbo and Dong-guan in China.”We have started production in August and adopted a lean manufacturing system to reduce lead time and improve reliability to ensure same quality as elsewhere,” the company’s international operations vice-president Richard Scott pointed out.The company plans to ramp up its production capacity and manpower to 200 people by March.Interestingly, the nearly century-old company’s famous designers Charles and Ray Eames came calling to India in 1958 at the invitation of then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.”The interaction with Nehru led to the government setting up the National Institute of Design at Ahmedabad in Gujarat in 1961,” Hocking recalled.
