Fellow lounger Shamik Bag joins in next from Kolkata to update us on the Eden Gardens debacle. After earning a bad name in the 1996 World Cup, Kolkata’s iconic cricket stadium, the Eden gardens, is back in the limelight. The venue was to play host to the upcoming World Cup match between India and England on 27 February. But a recent order by the International Cricket Council has complicated the situation.

And finally, our film critic Sanjukta Sharma reviews 127 Hours, which has racked up six Academy Award nominations, including ‘best actor’ for the very awesome James Franco. The film is based on the true life story of mountain climber Arom Ralston’s adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crushes his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah, US.

That’s all from us this week.
