Correction: Gaurav Mukhi isn’t 16; is he?

first_imgAdvertisement AdvertisementGaurav Mukhi came on as a substitute at the 71st minute for Jamshedpur FC in their game against Bengaluru FC and even scored an equalizer.How old is Gaurav Mukhi? (Credits: indiansuperleague.com)Before the kick-off, the commentators mentioned him to be only 16 years old. They didn’t backtrack from their statement as they exclaimed on top of their lungs when the striker scored the goal. However, now it seems that Gaurav Mukhi isn’t 16.The official ISL match report of the game mentioned him to be 16 years old, but its edited version reads, ” Gourav Mukhi scored Jamshedpur’s first equaliser in the 81st minute, his maiden goal in the Hero ISL.” However, Jamshedpur FC is sticking to their word as an excerpt of their match report reads, “And then came the moment of the 16-year-old! Mukhi was found brilliantly by Mario Arques as the teenager went through on goal.”All this trouble started when Jharkhand had won the 2014-15 Sub Junior National Football Championship. Five players of the Jharkhand squad were called by AIFF in order to prepare for the FIFA U-17 World Cup which was going to be held two years later, and Gaurav Mukhi was one of them. However, all of them were found to be “considerably overage” and Jharkhand was stripped from the title. But, Jamshedpur FC registered him as a 16-year-old in the ISL, and the commentators fell for it.Disciplinary action isn’t likely to be taken against Gaurav Mukhi nor Jamshedpur FC as ISL is not an age-limit tournament. However, if he wants to come out unscathed, he will have to disclose his real date of birth with proof.Sportsindiashow even published an article praising Gaurav Mukhi’s striking ability as a 16-year-old. We would like to apologize for the same.last_img read more

New York – Reported by Elite Traveler the private

first_imgNew York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineBreguet, the world’s most prestigious watch brand, continues to highlight the legacy of its founder Abraham-Louis Breguet (A.-L. Breguet) with an exhibit entitled: “Breguet: Watchmaker, Aviator, Innovator” celebrating a century in aviation inspired timepieces.The exhibition launched on Flag Day, June 14th, under the New York City skyline against the backdrop of a fleet of fighter planes on board the deck of The Intrepid. A cocktail reception unveiling the exhibit was hosted by the Board of Montres Breguet represented by Mr. Rodolphe Schulthess, VP of Global Sales, Mr. Jean-Charles Zufferey, Head of Marketing and Mr. Michael Nelson, Breguet USA Brand President. Over 300 guests were treated to a private viewing of the exhibit and a sneak peak of the Space Shuttle Enterprise. VIP guests included Mr. Floyd Cardoz, winner, Top Chef Masters and preferred clients.The evening was amplified by an expansive display of 26 Breguet watches, including 10 vintage timepieces on display for the first time in the U.S.Starting in New York City, Breguet embarks on a two month tour that traces the history of Breguet in aviation and showcases the brand’s legacy of innovation with a variety of historical timepieces including the original Breguet Type XX, and Breguet’s 10Hz technology which is integrated into the Type XXII.Breguet’s most celebrated clients included Napoleon, Marie-Antoinette and Winston Churchill to name a few. His extraordinary talents were undoubtedly passed down to his descendants, namely his great-great grandson Louis-Charles, who turned his talents to the fledgling world of Aviation.The evolution of the clock is closely linked to the development of long distance transportation. During the age of A.-L. Breguet, it was ship and sea travel that influenced innovation. In 1815, A.-L. Breguet developed the marine chronometer that helped usher in a more efficient age of sea travel. The invention was adopted by the French Navy, and Breguet was appointed “Horloger de la Marine Royal” (watchmaker to the Royal Navy).By the beginning of the 20th century, the demands of the sea gave way to the demands of the sky. Hence, the evolution of the aircraft soon prompted the evolution of the wristwatch. In 1918, the Breguet watch company first began producing watches for aviators and also developed chronograph mechanisms mounted in cockpit instrument panels.Breguet’s ties to the French Navy grew as the need for military aircraft at sea became evident soon after the first planes took flight. The French ministry of war formed the French Naval Air Arm (“Aéronavale”) in 1910 and by 1913 was using Breguet planes in its fleet. For the next 60 years, Breguet planes were the primary aircraft used by the Aéronavale.“Breguet: Watchmaker, Aviator, Innovator” will be open for viewing at the Breguet Boutique on Fifth Avenue from June 19th to July 8th, the Breguet Boutique in Bal Harbour from July 12th to July 29th and complete the tour at the Breguet Boutique on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills from August 2nd to August 19th.www.breguet.comlast_img read more
