Courting HOPE

The emergence of Somdev Devvarman has given a boost to Indian tennis and may answer the big question "Who after Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi?", writes M. S. Unnikrishnan

Though there is no dearth of talent, no one has been able to really measure up to the exacting standards of international tennis. But after an elevating performance in the Chennai Open ATP event, Somdev Devvraman seems to have bridged that gap.

Texts from almost every known language have been translated into Braille from Albanian to Zulu.

Return of Winnie-the-Pooh
Vicky Shaw
A
new Winnie-the-Pooh book will be released later this year, more than 80 years after his first adventure.

Milne’s The House At Pooh Corner, the sequel to Winnie-the-Pooh.
