events in Punjab It was again brought to life almost a decade ago by music producer Baljit Singh Padam aka Dr Zeus who took it to the UK in turn exciting the diaspora in the English-land But what’s little-known is that Kala chashma the song that’s igniting almost all street parties and clubs around currently has been sung by a folk singer named Amar Arshi who sings at local jagrans and weddings in Punjab The song has helped the singer through this “re-created” version by way of increase in the amount of money he makes during his performances especially the few that take him to Australia and the UK — two countries with considerable Punjabi population The number of his shows says Arshi has also increased “I’m really happy that the song is doing so well and has come back into the limelight yet again But people who know me ask me why is your name nowhere there despite your voice being there I wish they’d given some prominent credit” says Arshi in a telephone conversation from Jalandhar a few minutes before getting on the stage WATCH VIDEO: Katrina Kaif Sidharth Malhotra & Nitya Mehra On The Making of ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ Arshi a few months ago was asked by the owner of Angel Records — a Punjab-based music label — to re-record one of his most popular pieces so that an advertisement could be made out of it “I did get some basic recording money then They said they would use 10 seconds from it for some advertisement Later someone from Bombay studios where the song was being reworked by Badshahji told me that my song is being converted into something bigger But no one really asked me for anything certainly no permission I heard it exactly how you or the rest of the nation did” says Arshi who has no idea if he is to get royalty for the song “Dekho ji kuch dende ne agar (Let’s see if they give something)” says 47-year-old Arshi who is often seen in local music videos singing with his wife folk singer Narenderjyot Kaur Growing up in a poverty-stricken family in the village Nangal Majja in which no one was interested in music Arshi taught himself by listening to folk songs sung by legendary Punjabi singers such as Gurdas Mann Surinder Shinda and Kuldeep Manak regular on All India Radio Jalandhar This was until he found a guru in popular singer Amar Singh Chamkeela “I would find myself at his office at 4 am and sing for him learn from him Whatever I know is because of him” says Arshi whose parents didn’t appreciate the idea of a career in music and would often ask him to do something “constructive” “My mother would constantly get irritated when I would play the harmonium But I wouldn’t budge” says Arshi for whom Kala chashma 20 years ago was one of the 10 songs being recorded to be taken to England “I was excited that some music producers were actually recording me I sang with all my heart” says Arshi who didn’t get any money for the song then “I would get happy if I got paid in those days I was okay if I didn’t” says Arshi who is happy that at least people in Punjab are recognising that his voice exists in a Karan Johar film “It’s funny that people are asking me to sing Kala chashma at maata ka jaagrans now I tell them this is not the place for a song such as this and do not oblige” says Arshi just when its time to get on the stage The opening piece is well the earworm that has most Punjabi music lovers in a tizzy “They’ll hear my

Davis Cup team is set for a battle of gigantic proportions as it takes on five-time champions Spain who have packed the side with world class performers headlined by the legendary Rafael Nadal in their desperation to reclaim a spot in the elite World Group The World Group Play-off tie seems a classic David vs Goliath contest in which the Spaniards are not expected to be pushed much The tie however is a great opportunity for India’s singles players Saketh Myneni (4) and Ramkumar Ramanathan (1) who together have experience of playing just five ties in their fledgling Davis Cup careers to not only test themselves against the best but also learn from them It also is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the Indian tennis fans to get to watch 14-time Grand Slam champion Nadal in action in a competitive match The celebrated player has been struggling for a while but can never be discounted even in his worst phase After all India do not have many ATP tournaments where stars like him David Ferrer (world number 13) and French Open champions Feliciano Lopez (world number 26) and Marc Lopez (world number 15 in doubles) can come and play Now world number four Nadal has been pivotal in Spain’s four (2004 2008 2009 2011) of the five Davis Cup title wins and Ferrer too has played a significant role in three of those title triumphs (2008 2009 2011) Together all four Spanish players — Nadal (16) Ferrer (18) Feliciano Lopez (22) and Marc Lopez (9) — have an experience of 65 Davis Cup ties between them India’s singles players have just five with Ramkumar making his debut only two months back in Chandigarh against Korea It will be baptism by fire for Sumit Nagal if he gets a game and India will look to Leander Paes a veteran of 53 ties to shepherd the inexperienced players While playing against such world class players nobody will question the defeat but the manner in which the Indian players will fight it out will surely be watched As Paes put it “they have nothing to lose” Myneni and Ramumkar will have to put their heart and soul in the contest The 28-year-old Myneni is coming to the tie after a good US Open where he qualified for the main draw and almost won his first round against Jiri Vesely He possesses a solid serve and decent ground-strokes even as his fitness remains a concern His body loses fluid very quickly making him prone to cramps Ramkumar had promised a lot initially but has not taken off as expected His trademark inside-out forehand is one of the best in the country but he needs to put together all aspects of the game to emerge winner Paes is just one win shy of becoming the most successful doubles players in the history of Davis Cup as he is tied with Italian great Nicola Pietrangeli on 42 doubles victory Although he and Rohan Bopanna do not gel well the latter’s presence in this tie would have made India’s doubles combination better and would have given the veteran a good shot at the record he is eyeing He is likely to with play Myneni if the Vizag lad remains good enough to compete in the doubles after tomorrow’s contest Despite not having a single player in top-100 India have established themselves as a force in the Asia zone and consistently reach the Play-off stage but to make the World Group and stay there the side needs to find better singles players Otherwise they will continue playing in Asia/Oceania zone only As Nadal put it Spain is a team that belongs to the World Group and not in zonal Group competition They are in the Europe/Africa Group after losing the World Group first round to Germany in January 2014 Since then they are struggling in the zonal competition suffering a 1-3 reversal against Brazil and 2-3 defeat against Russia in absence of both Nadal and Ferrer They did not want to take any chance on tough conditions in India and have come with their best line up The last time India and Spain competed against each other was in 1965 when Spain beat India 3-2 in a home tie Spain lead the Head-to-Head record 2-1 with India managing to beat them way back in 1927 in an away tie The first tie between the two nations was on a neutral venue ie in Great Britain where Spain beat India in the World Group Quarterfinal 4-1 There was debate about the evening timing of the tie with the Indian team itself divided over the subject but that would hardly be a factor given that the Spaniards

With the opening PGA Tour event of 2017 just a month away golf fans and players are bracing for the next chapter from Tiger Woods as the former world number one prepares for his first start on the US circuit since August 2015 Though Woods is unlikely to tee it up in competition until the Jan 26-29 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines where he is a seven-times former champion he has already given a taste of what to expect with his performance in the Bahamas last week Back in action after an absence of almost 16 months caused by chronic back problems Woods produced roller-coaster form at the Hero World Challenge which he hosts to finish 15th in an elite 17-man field Hardly surprisingly the 14-times major winner was rusty in certain areas of his game and made several errors in judgement over the four rounds but also showed flashes of the brilliant golf for which he was once renowned and ended the week with a tournament-high 24 birdies Woods was clearly delighted to be back competing with his peers and his fellow American world number five Jordan Spieth expressed the views of many in that Bahamas field with a positive and excited assessment of the tournament host’s return to competition “What looks like is happening is he’s being patient he’s making a return he’s confident in his game” Spieth 23 told reporters about the 40-year-old Woods “That’s really exciting for us and for golf “He’s a guy that can continue to have an influence on the golf course for players … he can truly help get the numbers back up in golf” Spieth who won the Masters and US Open in 2015 felt Woods should not be judged on the success of his comeback until at least late next year saying any player needed a minimum of one week of competition for every two weeks away from the game to establish good rhythm “But what he did (in the Bahamas) showed that he’s certainly up for the task and his game’s there he’s ready to go” said Spieth “Even with Tiger every time we set expectations he exceeds them “But that’s sometimes not fair then to set even higher ones so certainly I hope that he gets his time … and I’m sure he will He’s mentally tough as anybody who’s ever been in the game”
