The Filipinos salvaged their last cage medal, a bronze in 1998. Then the plunge to mediocrity started as teams from the Middle East boosted the Asiad cage roster.Gilas Pilipinas actually has a strong shot at the gold if the country decides to take the Asiad basketball campaign seriously. With the national team standouts keeping themselves fit due to the ongoing World Cup qualifying, Reyes won’t have conditioning problems if his boys are also tapped for the Indonesia cagefest.And if Andray Blatche becomes eligible, unlike in Incheon when he was replaced by Douthit, he would certainly be an Asiad asset for Gilas. Another possible Gilas reinforcement is Fil-German Christian Stanhardinger, who is joining San Miguel Beer in the coming PBA Commissioner’s Cup.After the second World Cup qualifying game with Australia, Reyes will also have the Jones Cup set in mid-July to test the Asiad bets.So, how about it Chot?ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Reyes, who had naturalized players Marcus Douthit and current Gilas mainstays June Mar Fajardo, Japeth Aguilar, Jayson Castro and Gabe Norwood in the 2014 squad that finished with just three wins against four losses overall, is currently preoccupied with the Gilas campaign in the qualifiers for the 2019 Fiba World Cup in China.The Nationals, with a 2-1 win-loss record, are running second behind Australia in Group B after two windows of the qualifier. They play Chinese Taipei in Taiwan on June 29 then play host to Australia at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue on July 2 to cap their first round qualifying schedule.

first_imgA Lesson LearntThe findings of the survey are not surprising (“What’s Wrong With Our Teaching?”, November 27). We are still following the teaching norms set by the British. They had designed our education system to produce clerks who would simply follow their orders. We have hardly done anything to change,A Lesson LearntThe findings of the survey are not surprising (“What’s Wrong With Our Teaching?”, November 27). We are still following the teaching norms set by the British. They had designed our education system to produce clerks who would simply follow their orders. We have hardly done anything to change this.SUNIL MUNDRA, on e-mail”The cover story was an awakener, not a revelation. To rectify the flaws in our education system, we need to promote learning by understanding.”ANJUM M. SAMEL, on e-mailOur Government should take serious steps to revamp the education system and focus on imparting real knowledge, which is not determined by marks alone. It is disheartening to see students performing well in examinations, yet lacking analytical skills.MAHUA VENKATESH, DelhiThe problem doesn’t lie with the syllabus alone. There is a dearth of trained tutors in our country as teaching today is a profession adopted by people who fail to make a mark in other fields. There should be enough remuneration and perks to attract educators in our country.HIRAK SENGUPTA, DelhiA clear distinction has to be made between learning and knowledge. Students should not be encouraged to memorise lessons to score in examinations. In stead, they should be motivated to exchange ideas on various educative topics with their fellow classmates to gain knowledge.S. LAKSHMI, on e-mailINDIA TODAY’s delineation on the education system unmasked some of the drawbacks that prevail in our schools. The learning process is akin to a sport. You need to play the game and not just read about it to be completely evolved. Perhaps, we need to adopt a lab approach which will help students learn faster.K. CHIDANAND KUMAR, BangaloreadvertisementThere is a craze to admit children in good schools but in reality, do we know the definition of one? The best products come out of unknown schools. Just compare the results of civil services in the last decade and you’ll know that motivation doesn’t come from the tag of the school.MAN MOHAN BHATIA, DelhiPrisoners of FateIt is really outrageous that defying all international norms and protocols, Pakistan has not returned the Indian prisoners of the 1971 war, even after India released more than 93,000 Pakistani soldiers. (“Missing in Inaction”, November 27). India should take up the issue with the Pakistani Government and seek a solution for the release of the hapless POWs languishing in their jails.V.K.TANGRI. DehradunIt is disheartening to see that a story about our prisoners of war gets just two pages in a magazine like yours. The media seems to be blissfully unaware of the plight of the POWs and their families. The job of the media is to highlight the grievances of the masses. On this issue, however, it seems to have failed.BHAVYA BHATNAGAR, DelhiHu’s FriendsIt is only prudent on India’s part to improve relations with China in the face of increasing hostilities from Pakistan and Bangladesh (“Return of the Dragon”, November 27). We certainly cannot afford more enemies in the neighbourhood. Even on economic front, improved co-operation with China is imperative. As they say, if you cannot beat them, join them.SANJEET KHAJURIA, LucknowMoney and the MomsIt is incorrect to say that children of working women get a better deal than single income homes (“The Mummy Factor”, November 27). True, urban households with working women have higher annual incomes, but that’s not the only criterion to ensure better quality of life as the spending capacity of a family does not determine a child’s upbringing.VIJAYA BHARATI, RourkelaNo Child’s PlayWe need a clearer definition of innocence (“Loss of Innocence”, November 27). Today, no parent is keen on having a shy or dumb kid. Every one dreams of a Sanchita or an Akansha in their child and there is no problem in that. Children should be well trained to take on the competition around them.LATA RAGHAVAN, DelhiRoyal MistakeWhile elaborating the politics of royalty, you have mentioned that “Shrimant” means “your highness” (“A Battle Royale”, November 27). This is totally misleading as in the Hindi dictionary, the meaning of this word is wealthy and revered. When it is prefixed to a name, the more appropriate meaning would be revered.M.A. GHATGE, on e-mailDigital DivideOur technology is breeding a sense of deprivation among those tender minds whose parents cannot afford the gizmos that they see their friends hooked on to (“Wired Generation”, November 20). Such youngsters have a tendency to feel left out and inadequate during their school years. Such feelings can later develop into serious complexes, affecting their overall performances.SANDEEP SHETE, PuneadvertisementClean Up CricketIndian cricket has come of age; it has aged. So have our cricketers (“Perform or Pay Up”, November 20). Cricket now is not about performance but about endorsements and politics. Cricketers should be judged on their performances. There is no use dragging in coaches into the mess when the team is unable to perform.PRITAM SETH, on e-mailIt’s certainly the best time to institute a “pay for performance” system for our cricket team, which is under scrutiny for quite some time for its poor performance. If a fine is levied on them, our cricketers will be forced to perform on field. After all, they too should justify their salaries.JAYASHANKAR JAYARAMAN, BangaloreLabouring Over Child LawsIt shouldn’t surprise anyone that the Government has announced a ban on child labour without putting in place a mechanism to ensure a good future for them. After all, rehabilitation as a term has always been anathema to Indian governance.ALEX PAPERWALA, on e-mailThe coordination among ministries may be lacking as far as proper implementation of a ban on child labour is concerned, but at least the Government seems to have woken up to the problem. One should give Manmohan Singh some time to remove the speed breakers.KAILASH PATHAK, Patnalast_img read more
