lakh is the highest-paid player in Pro Kabaddi League Related News India won barely The reigning Asian Games kabaddi champions defended their title against yet another Iran team sent to conquer the unseen — be the first ever team to beat India to gold at the continental stage last October The Iranians had failed in their task But the complexion of the victor and the vanquished had changed drastically after the final whistle There was drooping relief on the shoulders of the winners rather than the usual high-collared arrogance they had become accustomed to The Iranians in turn stood tall firm and boisterous still mirroring the aggression they displayed before the game when they performed their own rendition of the Haka And just as the Maori war cry presents a challenge to the opponent so did the Iranians soon after the match “If you want a competitive and tougher Pro Kabaddi League call us We want to play there with or against you” they said Indian coaches had studied the Iranians with awe So much so that four of the squad members were soon auctioned off to PKL franchises Among them 23-year-old Hadi Oshtorak and 27-year-old Meraj Sheykh were sold for a combined Rs 412 lakh to the Telegu Titans Sheykh went for Rs 201 lakh while his compatriot’s Rs 211 lakh capture shattered the previous Rs 128 lakh high-sale record held by an Indian to become the two highest paid in the league Iran skipper Fazel Atrachali was sold to U Mumba for Rs 4 lakh while Mohammad Maghsoudlou got Rs 7 lakh from Jaipur Pink Panthers The making of a powerful rivalry pivoting on respect for the Iranians was complete The origin of the game itself has been one of contentious debate between the two nations India cites the game as being played within its borders since ancient times — mentions of it in scriptures myths and epics et al Iran meanwhile takes credit in inventing the sport several centuries ago spreading it to the subcontinent via merchant trade routes “I started kabaddi when I was 18 years old I am living in Sistan and this area is the origin of world kabaddi I don’t like football” Meraj says But India is widely acknowledged as the birth-place of kabaddi further intensifying the Middle Eastern nation’s resolve to reach the summit in the sport The final at Incheon itself was one India skipper Rakesh Kumar describes as a game that ‘should not have been won’ Yet more importantly he fears that Iran;s very close to attaining the top spot A hard-fought win for India that too in a final was just as unprecedented as the strength and determination Iran exhibited In both the 2006 and 2010 editions that Kumar competed in his team stormed through each match In 2014 though he claims superior experience was the eventual champions’ only saviour against a younger opposition “Eventually we were trying to figure out how we actually won and they were trying to figure out how they lost That’s what that match was about” recalls the 33-year-old Just as it was with the Indians the riches of the marquee league will enhance their lifestyles “20 lakhs equals 1100000000 rials” Meraj says “I recently got engaged and will be getting married after the PKL So the money will help in bringing a good life for my family” mentions Oshtorak Sheykh meanwhile as the sole-earner in his family will use the money for household expenses There is now a one-track approach that the Iranians have applied toward their Indian counterparts — uproot the subcontinental team’s hold of the top spot A veteran of three Asian Games titles and two World Cup wins Kumar recalls first hearing of the Middle Easterners challenge back in 2003 “We beat them at one tournament and they told us to watch out because they were going to beat us big time one day” he says “They’re actually working towards it Our national camps are on for two months theirs go on for two years continuously” he exclaims Soon after Incheon Iran won the gold at the Asian Beach Games at Thailand comprehensively beating India 40-31 in the group stage “Pakistan used to be the team we weren’t allowed to lose to Now it is Iran” says Kumar Hadi Oshtorak and Meraj Sheykh the highest paid players in the Indian league might well be looking to raid the best defences and show their class For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Mumbai | Published: September 12 2014 1:00 am Director Shinya Tsukamoto (C) poses with cast members Lily Franky (L) and Tatsuya Nakamura duringthe photo call for the movie ”Nobi” (Fires on the plain) at the 71st Venice Film Festival September 2 2014 Top News One of the most powerful and violent films to be shown at the Venice Film Festival this year Japanese director Shinya Tsukamoto’s Nobi (Fires on the Plain) delivers a stinging anti-war message bathed in blood A remake of a 1959 classic the film in competition for the main festival prize sticks to the plot of Kon Ichikawa’s earlier film about defeated Japanese troops in the Philippines in World War Two The version by Tsukamoto whose past horror-and-fantasy-tinged films have earned him a reputation as an auteur of the strange pumps up the volume in terms of severed body parts bloody stumps of arms maggot-ridden corpses and starving soldiers descending into cannibalism Tsukamoto also plays Private Tamura the main character in the film which dwells on the dead and the dying among Japanese troops towards the end of the war It shows the limits of human endurance and the desperate measures people will take to survive “In the last year all the people that had experienced war are getting older and older and many of them have died so there are very few people who can testify and say what war really is” Tsukamoto told Reuters in an interview “At the same time the political situation in Japan is getting worse and worse and it’s going back to the past militarily speaking and also politically speaking” he said referring to Japan’s recent moves to bolster its military “So I just wanted to somehow push everyone’s feelings towards these kinds of conditions I want to address the audience as normal people to say ‘We are in danger’ but at the same time I want to warn politicians and people who are in charge saying ‘You are making bad choices and you must be careful not to go back to the past’ This is the reason I made this film” The film is based on the 1951 novel Fires on the Plains by Ooka Shohei Tsukamoto also said he felt that history is not necessarily always on a forward trajectory and civilisation can regress “I think that there has been an evolution from beast to human being and it’s taken such a long time and a lot of people have died for this evolution in history and sometimes we go towards the future but sometimes we stop and we go back to our past breaking this kind of evolution and I think this is amoral” adding that “It’s not normal and it should be different because human beings should go forward and not forget their past because this is the worst thing they can do” Japanese actor Lily Franky who plays one of the soldiers said “Actually one of the messages in this film by the director is not one the Japanese want to see” referring to a desire among Japanese to wipe out memories of World War Two and Japan’s role in it “The director is actually thinking about releasing the film next year on the anniversary of the end of the war” said Franky “Normally on this day August 15th … most Japanese don’t want to watch TV programmes scheduled on this but we hope to release this film on that day next year so that’s the mission of the film (to make the Japanese audience think about this subject)” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News
