Yusuf Pathan's belligerent 105 off just 70 balls proved insufficient as India lost the deciding ODI of the five-match series to South Africa by 33 runs at the Centurion on Sunday.Earlier, Hashim Amla batted through the innings for his 116 not out as South Africa set India a revised target of 268 to win the rain-affected fifth ODI.

Opener Amla hit nine fours in his seventh one-day century and led South Africa to 250-9 after a rain delay reduced the final match of India's tour to 46 overs per side.
Morne van Wyk made 56 while JP Duminy had 35 and shared a 102-run partnership with Amla as the Proteas set a challenging total after being asked to bat first by India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Munaf Patel took 3-50 as South Africa lost six wickets for 24 runs in a frantic final four overs following the rain delay.
Yuvraj Singh had 2-45 and Zaheer Khan 2-47 as the home team went from 226-3 to 250-9 following the weather break.
Van Wyk's third ODI half-century had boosted South Africa early in their innings after they had lost Captain Graeme Smith in the third over.
Smith again fell to left-armer Khan — the bowler who has troubled him most in his career — when he was caught at slip for just 7 in his final innings at home as the Proteas one-day captain.
The left-hander, who is leading South Africa for a record 142nd time in one-dayers, will give up the ODI role after the upcoming World Cup.
No. 3 Van Wyk reached a rapid 50 off 53 balls with seven fours and shared a 97-run partnership with the composed Amla to take the score past 100 before Yuvraj broke through with two quick wickets to slow the Proteas' progress.
Van Wyk went, caught and bowled to left-arm spinner Yuvraj for 56 from 63, and AB de Villiers failed again when he was stumped by Dhoni for 11 — the second time in successive innings he's been dismissed by Yuvraj.
Amla continued to anchor South Africa's effort, playing carefully in the middle part of his innings after he had started with four flowing boundaries early on.
The right-handed opener scored 33 consecutive singles as he went past 50 — his 13th ODI half-century and third of the five-match series — then launched his fifth boundary through midwicket off Yuvraj as South Africa reached 150.
Amla was dropped by substitute fielder Ravichandran Ashwin on 70, but shrugged off his slip to add 102 with Duminy for the fourth wicket and guide South Africa toward a strong score, despite the rain interruption, in the deciding match of a closely fought series.
Amla reached three figures with a late cut for four off Suresh Raina, guiding the ball down to the third man boundary for his ninth four and seventh one-day century.
Duminy was happy to pick up singles and hand the majority of the strike to the in-form Amla as they added 97 to take South Africa to 226-3 after 42 overs when the rain came down.
The left-handed Duminy then flashed the second ball after the interruption through the covers for his first boundary and the 100-run partnership, but top-edged a pull straight after and Patel turned and ran back to take the catch off his own bowling.
It started a dramatic run of six wickets in 21 balls as the Protease chased quick runs at the end.
Faf du Plessis came and went, edging a four off Patel off the first delivery of the 45th over, before missing a fuller delivery next ball and being bowled by the paceman for 8.
Patel had Johan Botha caught two balls later and Robin Peterson ended an action-packed penultimate over by smashing his first ball through extra cover for four.
He was bowled two balls later by Zaheer Khan and Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel ran themselves out in the space of two balls as South Africa slumped at the end.

Khalistani Movement - An Introduction

The Khalistani movement marked a historic epic in the history of post-Independent India. This reactionary communal fascist movement advocated the liberation of Sikhs and a separate state to be carved out for the Sikh people. Khalistani ideology advocated a separate theocratic state based on all the tenets of Sikhism.

Jagjit Singh Chauhan was the founder of this movement in the late 60's abroad. Natively from Punjab he had settled abroad, and in Britain formed Sikh religious groups advocating a new state for the Sikhs.

The Khalistani dictates included a ban on cigarettes, a ban on eating meat, a ban on drinking liquor, a ban on beauty parlours, prohibition against shaving and compulsion of women to wear Salwar Kameez. The people had to observe the Khalistani code in all ways of life.

In Punjab the Akali Dal represented the religious Sikh politics through the Akali movement which had its origin in the Singh Sabha movement of the late 1920's which tried to communalise a secular anti-imperialist movement. To divert it, the Shiromani Gurudwara Prabhandak committee was formed with the blessings of the British.

The Akali movement professed the Anandpur Sahib resolution that converted several democratic issues into Sikh demands. Democratic demands of the people like the arrest of the Jodhpur detenues, the sharing of river waters with Haryana, the transfer of the capital from Chandigarh to Amritsar, and the punishing of criminals during the Delhi riots were taken up as religious issues.


There are a number of ways to….make money...From writing on the internet but the way that most people start earning from their writing is by gradually monetizing blogs that they started for fun or as a hobby. It might start out with a blog bringing in a few dollars to pay for its own hosting, or for a couple of books or a few cups of coffee per month. And it may increase gradually so that it eventually becomes enough to be equivalent to a part time job. Some blogs even end up making hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Of course there are millions of blogs that don’t make money at all. People thinking of getting into blogging for the money should be aware that it is very difficult to be one of the few bloggers who make decent money from a blog (or number of blogs). However, despite the odds, it is possible with hard work and a bit of luck, to make money from blogging. If you are considering either starting your own blog or monetizing a blog you already operate, then you should begin with the following steps.

Firstly, you need to ensure that you have the correct combination of a profitable niche and a catchy domain name. The term ‘profitable niche’ refers to an area that is not so broad and oversubscribed as to be impossible to get into – say ‘books’ or ‘electronics;’ but at the same time not so unique and of such limited time appeal that it will only interest 20 people – ‘a history of poems about tractors’ blog – or not make any money. Once you have a niche that could make money, lets say ‘teddy bears of the world’ then you need a good domain name, something to do with teddy bears that is also catchy.

Secondly, once you’ve chosen your niche and domain name and got your hosting sorted, you need to plan ahead by researching the keywords that are important for your niche. There are a number of tools on the web for this, some free and others costing fifty to a hundred dollars. All of them allow you to research the most common (and profitable) phrases that people type into Google when looking for teddy bear related sites.

Next, and most important of all, you need to write good content. Write it and they will come. This is where most blogs fail. People are so busy planning to make money they forget to write well. A passionately written blog is worth a thousand links – write an interesting and witty blog and update it continually and your audience will keep coming back for more. That said however, if you do all that and also cleverly intersperse the content with a few well chosen keywords or phrases that wouldn’t hurt either!

Fourthly, you need to promote the site. This requires either money or hard work. As hard as you might work on content for a site, it doesn’t hurt to also promote it via link building. Search engines judge your site on popularity and the number of incoming links so it is up to you to go out there and build those links either through sites like Ezine and Hubpages or through guest posting on other blogs. It is possible to also buy software that helps with this and sends articles out to a number of sites with your anchor links built in, but this software will cost you money. Avoid the temptation to use link farms as any short term gain these might bring will soon be punished by Google.

Lastly, you need to monetize your site. This can be done in a number of ways but the most common for people new to blogging (and for old hands) are the following methods:

Adsense – an ad serving application run by Google. Enroll your site with Adsense to enable image, text and video adverts and generate revenue via pay per click or per impression.

Affiliate Programs – Affiliate programs are where businesses reward you for traffic and customers you have sent to their site.

Continuity Programs – A recurring income from a service or subscription that your site provides.

Private Ad Sales – A business to business agreement between your site and another business who wants to advertise with you.

Ebooks – Writing and selling some kind of book (normally a guide to doing something) via your site.
