A 14-year-old boy was killed when a stump, thrown by a rival batsman, hit his head during a local neighborhood match in Chittagong, Bangladesh.
Faisal Hossain was fielding in the southeastern port city of Chittagong when the batsman was given out, according to assistant police commissioner Jahangir Alam.
“The batsman was furious when he saw that he was stumped or bowled out. He grabbed a stump and threw it in the air. The stump hit part of the neck and head of Faisal who was fielding close to the wicket,” the Hindustan Times quoted Alam as saying.
“He collapsed on the ground in pain and was declared dead after he was taken to a hospital.”
The batsman has been detained after the incident on Sunday and will be prosecuted for causing unintentional death, police said.
Clashes are common over cricket in Bangladesh, where the sport is taken seriously even at village level.
Last May, a batsman wielding a stump allegedly beat a 16-year-old cricketer to death in Dhaka after the teenager taunted the umpire over a no-ball delivery.

Not all, but many of the temporary teachers who have been wishing to become permanent, no doubt, appointed on the basis of their political ideologies. They couldn't succeed in the examinations despite repeated attempts. They carried the bags of those parties during their teaching career.
The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

To dogs, with love
Many find talking about basic animal rights stupid when no basic rights of people are guaranteed. However, there are still few people who are aware how humane behavior has turned toward cruelty and indifference which can be vividly seen through the way street dogs and other animals are abused around us.

What we need to learn from Thailand?
Thailand is a developing country. But it seemed like a developed country at first sight. It is hard to believe that Thailand is a developing country. There are big buildings, and clean and broad roads. The city is clean with no trace of pollution.
