The sports ministry’s proposal for merger of the two rival hockey federations is an offer that neither can refuse.IHF president RK Shetty with HI secretary Narinder Batra.With both Hockey India and Indian Hockey Federation (IHF) embroiled in a legal battle, sports minister Ajay Maken’s proposal to expand the former’s executive board to accommodate members of the rival body seems a move to placate both bodies.As a result, neither federation can afford to reject it outright.”It is an honest effort and a good initiative by the government,” Hockey India secretary general Narinder Batra told Mail Today on Monday, a day before the two federations have to submit their responses with the ministry.Batra does not see much wrong with what the ministry is proposing.”We have no objections to it and our response will be on the lines of the proposals forwarded by the sports minister. We have had discussions among ourselves and have also talked with people in the IHF as well,” he said.Batra said Hockey India was willing to do its bit for the game. “It is a positive development and we are ready for whatever is good for the game.” IHF president RK Shetty was not so forthcoming on the matter, but indicated that the move was a step in the right direction.”We also want a single body for hockey in India. It is a new step by the government and needs co-operation from all three sides for the best results,” Shetty told MAIL TODAY.advertisement”We are discussing the matter, but the proposal is demanding a lot from us, without promising much in return. Even the name of our federation will be taken away.”I can’t say much before we actually submit our response. It will not be a decision taken solely by me. All my colleagues will have to be consulted,” he added.The ministry has given only three days for the two federations to respond and the hurry may be necessitated to show the Supreme Court that it is working to break the impasse.If its proposal is accepted, it can bask in the glory of engineering a solution.Otherwise, it can report to the court that one (or both) federations played spoilsport. By mooting the proposal, the ministry has lobbed the ball back in the court of the two warring bodies.

It’s good to see you again,” Thompson said. “It’s been a five-game absence or so where he hasn’t been in the game, so to finally see the ball go in at a high rate felt really good.”Golden State coach Steve Kerr said there wasn’t anything different about Thompson’s game. He was merely due.“Shots just went in,” Kerr said. “I didn’t think the quality of his shot attempts looked that much better. I think the law of averages just took over.”If there’s a place outside Oakland where Thompson feels most comfortable, it’s Portland’s Moda Center, known as the Rose Garden during his childhood.“It’s like a second home here. I was very fortunate to come to a lot of Blazer games at the Rose Garden,” Thompson said. “To be back here playing for my family is surreal. It feels like I’m getting old. It feels like yesterday I was back in these hallways trying to snag autographs.

Realme is leaving no stones unturned to make its place in the Indian smartphone market. In fact, being a new company Realme is giving sleepless nights to competitors like Xiaomi, Samsung, among others. It has just been slightly more than a year that Realme entered the Indian market. Ever since then the company has launched several great phones in India. The company recently launched the Realme 3 Pro in India to take on the likes of Redmi Note 7 Pro. Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has now confirmed that the company is working on 5G phones to bring very soon.Sheth revealed several details about the company’s take on 5G devices. Sheth elucidates that the Realme 5G phone will be ready before the telecom operators in India begin offering network services to the consumers. “We will be launching 5G services much before the operators… we want consumers in India to enter 5G services as such,” Sheth told the media in an interaction. This was reported by IANS. However, he didn’t mention the timeline for the launch of Realme 5G phones.Currently, 5G is being tested in India. Reports suggest that the Indian government plans to roll out 5G connectivity services by 2020 — that is next year. Some countries across the world are already using 5G network on their devices. Some reports suggest that the telecom operators — like Reliance Jio, Airtel and Vodafone Idea — will start 5G trials next month in India. The trial period may be extended by a year so telecom operators have sufficient time to stabilise the network before the official launch.advertisementEarlier this week Realme launched the Realme X in China. This is the company’s first pop-up selfie camera phone and also the first one for around Rs 20,000. We at India Today Tech in an exclusive interview with Sheth confirmed that the Realme X will come to India soon. In India, Realme 3 is expected to have a price tag of under Rs 20,000.The Realme X sports a 6.5-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and over 91 per cent screen-to-body ratio. It is powered by a 2.2Ghz octa-core Snapdragon 710 chipset paired with up to 8GB RAM and 128Gb of internal storage. The Realme X offers a 48MP Sony IMX586 main camera with f/1.7 aperture, 1.6 micron pixel and 6P lens. On the front the Realme X includes a pop-up camera that houses a 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera.
