on pollution and taking measures like shutting down schools on poor air days would need further consideration said the two ministers spearheading Delhi’s air pollution control measures — Health and Public Works Department Minister Satyendar Jain and Transport Minister Gopal Rai — at the Indian Express Idea Exchange Friday When asked about the need for health advisories Jain who is also heading the Delhi government committee to tackle air pollution said “In my home children are eager for such advisories They say that if you issue advisories schools will close We will have to check this properly With the kind of environment we see in Delhi and the prevalent pollution levels we will have to keep schools shut 200 days out of the 365 days in a year So we have to think for some more time before issuing advisories… What if we issue advisories and schools refuse to shut” he questioned Jain added that the government was planning to introduce a colour-coded public information system on the streets to help people interpret air quality data “We are setting up panels to measure air quality live and also inform people what the levels should ideally be Today nobody knows exactly how polluted Delhi is; they just say there is a lot of pollution but nobody knows how bad it is Interpreting figures and numbers is very difficult We will show this data live in different areas and introduce some kind of a colour code — green orange red” said Jain On whether the government will actually issue health advisories he said “Officials of the health department have been urging me to introduce some kind of an advisory so we are on it; we will do something about it” Transport Minister Gopal Rai added that it would be pointless to issue such advisories “suddenly” “The advisories you are talking about how can we introduce them suddenly Who will listen to these advisories Who will read them It is true that now with this odd-even policy people are talking about this issue they are looking out for news Advisories have been issued in the past committees like the Pollution Control Committee and others have been studying pollution” said Rai The minister added that systems to

And World Cup winning Brazilian defender Lucio who’ll once again wear FC Goa colours is aged 38 They aren’t the only fading stars hanging on for that one final payday Data compiled by FIFA’s Transfer Matching System (TMS) for the June 1 to August 31 window shows that the average age of ISL imports this season is the highest in the world So far 59 new players that have been signed up by the eight ISL clubs and their average age is 27 This isn’t happening for the first time Last year Indian clubs (ISL and I-League combined) were involved in 118 international transfers during the summer and winter windows The average age of players signed was 28 years and 10 months second only to Iran The year before that – during the inaugural edition of the ISL – Indian clubs brought 131 players which was the second highest in Asia The average age of players back then was 29 years and one month the oldest Incidentally the average age of players imported by Indian clubs was around 25 till 2013 Till

foresee this Days after five former Gunners – Robert Pires Freddie Ljungberg Nicolas Anelka Mikel Silvestre and Andre Santos – joined the ISL Wenger told the club’s website that the ‘Indian league was a good option’ for players who are too old to sneak into one of the top European leagues “You have two steps Being completely at the top finishes when you are 34 at the latest After that you have different leagues like the MLS and the Indian Super League” he had said Forlan who won the Uruguayan league with Penarol last season says short duration of the ISL makes it an attractive option “At the moment the way they (organisers) are conducting the league – nice stadia the way they show it on TV – it’s more or less similar to the Premier League There is a difference of course” the former Manchester United and Atletico Madrid striker says “The league is not that long It’s really short and it’s a different type of event That’s why it’s attractive for many players Also the offers you have are really good as well” The tempting offer of making millions in three months got Allesandro del Piero to Delhi in 2014 Last year Roberto Carlos came out of retirement at the age of 42 to play

though feels it is unfair to call ISL a retirement home He says it’s a win-win situation for both the players as well as the league “The league is still at a nascent stage You need good international players from whom our players can learn Since we can’t afford top tier players the next best option is to get players who have done their hard miles proven themselves at the world level” Blah says “They add a lot of value and pass on important lessons to the Indian players Top down and bottom up ISL is doing what is best in the current situation” Blah adds the quality of players in the ISL is
