So we had to shoot our film there, says Saraswat For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Related NewsNew Delhi: Chief badminton coach Pullela Gopichand who guided Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu to Olympic medals in the successive Games says he was lucky that he wasn’t good in studies and it was a flunked IIT exam that paved his way to be a successful sportsperson "My brother and I both played sports He was fantastic in sports and now I feel that I was lucky I wasn’t good in studies" Gopichand said while discussing how sports requires commitment from both parents and sacrifices and sometimes luck also plays a part "He was a state champion He wrote his IIT exam and passed He went to IIT and stopped playing I wrote the engineering exam and failed and I continued in sports and this is where I stand now I think you have to be focused and even lucky sometimes" the 42-year-old said P Gopichand and PV Sindhu after arriving in India post the Rio Games AFP Gopichand went on to become only the second Indian to win the All England title in 2001 and soon after he retired and decided to open his own academy The journey to set up the academy was not an easy one as he faced many rejections when he went to ask for help from different quarters to arrange the finance Talking about one such incident Gopichand said: "I remember having gone to a cetain PSU few years back I was made to wait for three continuous days outside the room when they promised me support for badminton but after waiting from 9 in the morning to 5:30 in the evening after three days a certain officer at a high position came up to me and said that badminton doesn’t have the eyeballs to be a world sport "That was the last day I had gone ahead and asked anybody for sponsorship The same night I went back home and thanks to my parents and wife we mortgaged our house and that is how the academy came up" Gopichand said in a felicitation ceremony by IIFCLin Delhi on Tuesday In the last 12 years since setting up his academy in Hyderabad Gopichand produced two Olympic medallist and he said he never thought his dream to see India win an Olympic medal in badminton would come true so soon "I started the academy in 2004 with 25 young kids Sindhu was one of my youngest kid at about eight years and P Kashyap was the oldest at 15 When I started coaching I had this dream that India would win an Olympic medal someday I didn’t know that we could so soon in 2012 win our first medal" he said "I think maybe I should retire now because my goals were all finished and done with" he said on a lighter note Gopichand said though he was treated badly by some people he was also thankful to the good souls who have always been there to supported him "We have people in the ministry who have been ridiculous in their way of treating us but we also have some great souls who have supported us" he said "I hadn’t applied for the Rashtriya Khel Protsahana Puraskar and the Padma Bhushan but few supportive officials felt that I should still be given the award So its those kind of officials and people who move the sport forward "God has been very kind in my lifetime whenever I have had problems He has sent somebody for help" he said Meanwhile Sindhu’s father PV Ramana said that people who earlier used to criticise them for letting their daughter take sports as a career are the ones to appreciate her achievements and their sacrifices now "When Sindhu used to leave for training sometimes at 4’o clock and sometimes at 5’o clock and afterwards when we used to go for walks so many people used to say that why are you bearing so much but the same people now say that we are so proud of your daughter" Ramana told PTI "Unless and until we don’t sacrifice or put in some hard work we don’t get the fruit which Sindhu has done and she has got the fruits of it" he added On being asked about his sacrifices Ramana said: "As parents its our duty and moreover we being sports persons we know what is the importance of sports in the lives of sportsmen and how hard one has to work to come up to this level so we gave in our best to help our daughter achieve all that she deserves "Parents instead of pressurising their kids should come forward to support them in whichever field they want and then surely the child will also try to repay it back through the hard work and my daughter has done that to me" he concluded Arsene Wenger will seek to guide Arsenal to a record 12th FA Cup triumph when they face Aston Villa on Saturday and become the most successful manager in the history of the grand old competition Yet as the Frenchman homes in on winning the trophy for the sixth time — one more than his former Manchester United sparring partner Alex Ferguson — Wenger promises the landmark does not concern him Defending FA cup champions Arsenal will take on a reinvigorated Villa side at Wembley on Saturday AP Pitted against famished Premier League opponents Villa who are desperate for success after a 19-year trophy drought and faced a relegation battle this side Wenger’s side are ready to retain the trophy they won last year against Hull City A sixth FA Cup win for Wenger would create a record in the modern understanding of a manager though Villa’s manager/secretary George Ramsay oversaw six FA Cup victories between 1887 and 1920 and was the driving force behind their success Wenger has had the same kind of impact at Arsenal since he arrived in 1996 but says setting an individual landmark does not particularly bother him "I’d love to do it but I’m not honestly focussed on that" the Frenchman told reporters in the build-up to the final "I’m more focussed on the fact that we have fought so hard to get there We went to Manchester United to qualify (in the quarter-finals) and we had to win big games to get there Now we want to finish the job" To do so though Wenger will have to get the better of Tim Sherwood who helped secure Villa’s top flight status and has led them to a first FA Cup final in 15 years Sherwood has brought back a glimmer of Villa’s glory days especially by masterminding the stirring victory over Liverpool in the semi-final though it is 58 years since they last lifted the trophy This season’s competition has echoed Arsenal’s road to glory last year as they laboured to overcome second-tier Championship opposition Reading in the semi-final to set up a showpiece match with Premier League relegation escapees For Hull last year now read Villa who would seal a place in next season’s Europa League with a victory at Wembley Arsenal though having broken their own nine-year trophy drought at Wembley last term are not under quite the same pressure as they were to win it last year "The demand was absolute last year" said Wenger recalling how his future was seriously questioned before the Hull game The Gunners’ most demanding fans will expect nothing less than Wenger picking up his ninth major trophy Only then despite Champions League qualification being secured once more can it be considered a successful season REUTERS Visakhapatnam: English captain Alastair Cook is confident that his team’s "inexperienced" spinners will continue to trouble the highly rated Indian batting line-up in the second Test beginning at Visakhapatnam on Thursday The English spin troika of Moeen Ali Adil Rashid and Zafar Ansari who are under the tutelage of Pakistani great Saqlain Mushtaq outbowled their Indian counterparts in the drawn first Test in Rajkot File photo of England captain Alastair Cook Reuters "If you continue in that level like in Rajkot then there is no reason why we can’t put pressure on Indian batting with our spinners" the English captain said on the eve of second Test "Unfortunately we didn’t quite get over the line but we start afresh 0-0 at the start of the second Test And we are here to give India a run for their money" Showering praise on the spin trio he said: "They bowled excellently as a group of three spinners Everyone came to the party and they took a massive step forward from where they operated in Bangladesh "They can take a lot from that we as a side can take a lot from that performance and credit to Saqlain coming in and giving those guys confidence to go out and play They are inexperienced in these conditions but they took a big step forward and it’s great to see that" Apart from the spin trio the English have an edge with their bowling with a three-pronged pace attack in Stuart Broad Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes "It’s great we have got that balance of seamers as well Six bowlers in these conditions give me a lot of balance as captain If there is a dodgy few overs we can change it up We are not relying on four bowlers Everyone of those guys contributed and the challenge is now come and do it again" New Zealand were shot out for 79 at this same venue two weeks ago with spinners ruling the roost "I think judging on statistics here everyone is telling us the pitch will turn more and more as the game goes on so the toss is important but it does not guarantee anything "If we happen to lose the toss then it happens to be another challenge that we have to try and overcome Certainly an advantage in these conditions to bat first Hopefully (with) Virat (Kohli) winning seven in a row he’s got a few to lose" Cook said in a lighter vein English pacer spearhead James Anderson is available for selection after recovering from a shoulder injury but it appeared unlikely that he would be named in the eleven Woakes has a slight niggle but Cook said it was just a little wear and tear which would mean Anderson may have to wait "That is the kind of the question we have got to ask ourselves Jimmy has come over and done really well in the nets "Last time he bowled in a game was in August so we kind of weigh that up with a couple of guys who have been out here for seven weeks or so Just now we are going in with a few heads with what we are going to do" said Cook With four hundreds in two innings England put up a solid show with the bat in Rajkot "The way we played was particularly pleasing over the five days we were really relentless with our game Couple of dropped catches here and there but does happen in every game but apart from that we were excellent with the ball" Cook added Cook was left surprised when asked about Australia’s current woes against South Africa in the context of Ashes "Whatever going on in Australia does not change my situation at all For me to be talking about in Australia the day before we play a Test here after we have played so well in Rajkot is slightly surprising" Cook said "I said that at the end of the series I’ll sit down with Straussy and talk about how I feel and what happens in Australia won’t have anything to do with that We’re focusing on what we’ve got to do here What has happened in Australia makes no difference to my captaincy "It was an outstanding performance from South Africa first and foremost It was a brilliant team performance and it means we did something quite special when we went down there last winter and beat a similar team" The position of Australia coach Darren Lehmann is also appears to be under threat at a time when an Aussie Trevor Bayliss is coaching England "To ask about our coach who has been here a year and a half and has done great stuff. you’ll have to ask Trevor what happens if they come knocking but I think he’s pretty focused on what’s going on with us" Asked whether the turning Vizag pitch would scare them he said: "It doesn’t scare us What happened to New Zealand here in a one-day game has little relevance to how the Test with England will go "The toss is important but in Mumbai the last time we played here we lost the toss on a turning wicket and we outplayed India So it is important but it doesn’t mean you can’t win the game if you lose it "If you go back to our last game in Rajkot our worst bit of the game was that first 25 minutes when we showed a bit of nerves Everyone here says the toss is important but if we lose it it will just be another challenge we will have to overcome’ Cook then defended England’s record against spin "As I kept saying in Bangladesh they were incredibly tough wickets to bat on It doesn’t matter whether you’d played 130 Tests in Asia with a good record or your first game It was incredibly tough for the top order with the same balls skidding and spinning "If you look at mine and Gary Ballance’s dismissals we both received exactly the same deliveries with exactly the same release out of the hand a point of a mile difference One hit leg stump and the other got caught at slip so that was the challenge facing us and I kept on saying how hard it was "It didn’t make us bad players of spin but what it did do was focus a real intensity in our training after those 10 wickets fell in a session It kind of makes people not re-evaluate their game but really concentrate particularly in those first 30 balls of your innings "We had a really good couple of days in Mumbai and when conditions were slightly more favourable for batting the hard work we’d put in paid off I was really pleased how we batted in the last game and we have to do it again People will have to step up and be prepared to put the hard yards in Everyone starts on nought now" Kano:Police in the northern Nigerian city of Kano said they arrested five suspected Boko Haram militants after a gunfight marking a flare-up of jihadist violence in the city The suspects were taken into custody on Sunday on the outskirts of the city as they were about
