Adivasis don’t fall into the lingual traps of modernity. In their philosophical tradition, they are more realistic and scientific than any society
Tribal sportspersons have amazing talent. They are devoted and have high endurance. They are comfortable playing even on the hottest days without losing their spirit
The Gandhian philosophy holds that morality is a holy divine system, which a person experiences naturally and internally on his own. This moral awakening arises from sensing divinity.
Contrary to what upper caste activists tend to project, Adivasis can negotiate with the Indian state on their own terms
The assertion of an Adivasi identity has stonewalled the Sangh Parivar’s project in Jharkhand to incorporate Adivasis into the larger Hindu fold
India won the second T20I by 16 runs despite the heroics from Quinton de Kock (69 not out) and Davild Miller (106 not out) at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati to clinch the series 2-0 with a match to go. Rohit Sharma also became the first Indian captain to win a T20I series on home soil against the Proteas. Despite losing the toss, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma started off brightly as the South African pacers failed to hit the perfect lengths. Suryakumar Yadav alongside Virat Kohli ensured India reached a formidable 237/3 in 20 overs. In reply, the visitors lost captain Temba Bavuma and Rille Roussow cheaply before an unbeaten 174-run fourth wicket stand between QDK and Miller lit up the night sky. However, it wasn't enough as India ran away with the honours. India had earlier won the first game in Thiruvananthapuram. Get IND vs SA highlights.

An overcast sky has made organisers and fans anxious, bringing back memories of the last international cricket match at the venue that had to be abandoned after heavy rain. The last international fixture at Barsapara Stadium here was an India-Sri Lanka T20 match on January 5, 2020, which was called off due to persistent rain. The regional meteorological centre has forecast a partly cloudy sky with one or two spells of rain or thundershower for Guwahati on Sunday.
The seasoned Mohammad Shami, who is in the World Cup squad as stand-by, is not here for the South Africa series. Shami has recovered from COVID-19 and has more chances of making it to Australia because of his experience Down Under.
Hello and welcome to the second T20I between India and South Africa at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati.
