However, their order of qualification did not matter as the second semi-final of the night seemed a lot more even, with both teams fighting hard for their spot in the final, scores at the end of 40 minutes at 27-24.

U Mumba led through most of the game with the Bulls attaining a lead for a very few minutes in the first half of the game and losing it again  when  Bengaluru skipper was sent packing by all-rounder Rishank Devadiga.The ouster, which much needed break-through for the Mumbai boys, was followed up with Rajesh Mondal’s exit and two points as Rishank escaped Bengaluru’s four-man defence. Even Ajay Thakur’s heroics could not help the Bulls as they gifted Mumbai the first LONA points of the match in the 12th minute. With a seven-point lead and an insatiable hunger for points U Mumba scored their thirteenth point, leaving Bengaluru high and dry towards the end of the first half. With seconds to go for the break Mumbai’s best raider and the top raider amongst the finalists, Anup Kumar did what he did best, taking the score to 15-9 by half-time.

The second half began with Rishank walking out reducing the Mumbai team to three. Despite the stacking odds towards an all-out, Bengaluru’s star Raider, Ajay was captured by Anup Kumar and Mohit Chillar in the 34th minute, allowing them a chance at redemption. Mohit’s brilliance as a defender shone through as he executed the perfect tackles against Manjit and Ajay Thakur. Mumbai’s best defender, Surender Nada also joined the party, single-handedly sending the Bull’s captain back. Re-introduced for the second time in the 33rd minute, Mumbai’s Pawan Kumar failed yet again, reducing the Orange brigade to four.

29th August 2014, Mumbai: Securing the first Finals berth the Jaipur Pink Panthers defeated the Patna Pirates by a remarkable twenty points. With a 1-1, win-loss ratio no one would have been able to predict this highly anticipated semi-finals, however, Jaipur proved to the the stronger team within the first 15 minutes, dominating most of the game and entering the finals of the Star Sports Pro Kabaddi, with scores at 38-18 With a cautious start by both teams, Patna’s began the fireworks as their best raider Ravi Dalal scored an outstanding three-point raid, sending back Panthers, Rajesh Narwal, Navneet Gautam and Prashant Chavan. The League got its first chance to use a TV referral, as a turbo-charged Maninder Singh slammed into Rakesh Kumar, knocking them both clear out of the lobby. The refferres gave both teams points. Moments later, a brave attempt from Sandeep Narwal failed against Jaipur’s impenetrable defence, Patna was left a four-man army by the seventh minute.  After tying at five, Jasvir Singh clawed down Patna’s defence, earning the crucial one-point lead. Lone-man standing, Rakesh Kumar revived his team but gave away the first LONA points of the night, with a hope of a better, stronger comeback.

With an escalating lead and a diminishing team, Patna’s inability to handle pressure showed as Maninder reduced them to two-men, prompting Patna’s second an all-out in the 17th minute. The Pirates were able to earn a small victory before halftime by taking out the juggernaut Maninder Singh, but with the first-half clearly coloured by Pink, the scores took a break at 20-7.

As the second-half began, Patna was denied yet another chance to comeback as one by one Rakesh, Ravi and Sandeep were sent back, the latter tackled within just a few centimetres away from the centre-line. As the Panthers continued to race ahead of Patna’s staggering Pirate ship, their lead extended to twenty points as Ravi failed against the strong defence of the Panthers, granting them their third LONA. With seven minutes to go and a lot of ground to cover, Rakesh’s lack of form caught his team in the back foot again, setting them back by 11 points. Playing his first game, Bashimov was able to gain a point which did not help much as Patna conceded their fourth LONA, giving Jaipur an unassailable lead. By full-time, Jaipur mauled the Pirates, wrecking their ship by 20 points.

Japanese Language Proficiency Test – JLPT 2014 Announced

Applications available with Bangalore Nihongo Kyooshi-kai


Bangalore, August 26, 2014: The Bangalore Nihongo Kyooshi-kai (Japanese Language Teachers Association, Bangalore) or BNK, has announced the availability of application forms for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) 2014. The JLPT is a test for non-native speakers of Japanese, which evaluates and certifies their Japanese language proficiency. The test is simultaneously conducted twice a year in Japan and various locations around the world.

The Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) has been offered by the Japan Foundation and Japan Educational Exchanges and Services (formerly Association of International Education, Japan) since 1984 as a reliable means of evaluating and certifying the Japanese proficiency of non-native speakers. Outside Japan, the Japan Foundation administers the test in cooperation with local institutions such as the BNK.

According to the Survey of Overseas Organizations involved in Japanese language education, conducted every three years by the Japan Foundation, the number of students studying Japanese outside of Japan grew from 127000 in 1979 to 3.65 million in 2009. Along with the increase in students, the number of JLPT examinees has also increased. At the beginning, there were approximately 7,000 examinees worldwide.  Since then, the JLPT has become the largest Japanese-language test in the world, with approximately 610,000 examinees in 62 countries and areas worldwide in 2011. This success is entirely due to the support and cooperation of all involved. In India alone, more than 6000 students take the exam annually. In December 2013 almost 2000 students from across South India attempted the JLPT, of which 840 were from the Bangalore center.

The JLPT places importance not only on knowledge of Japanese-language vocabulary and grammar but also on the ability to use the knowledge in actual communication. Besides measuring ability in Japanese, the JLPT also helps in employment screening, evaluation for pay raises and promotions, and to recognize qualifications.

Japanese companies are globalizing their business and expanding to overseas markets, hence there is a growing demand among Japanese companies to hire foreign nationals with JLPT certifications.

To ensure the continuing relevancy and accuracy of the JLPT, the Japan Foundation and Japan Educational Exchanges and Services introduced a revised version of the test in 2010. This new test takes full advantage of the most advanced research in Japanese pedagogy and testing theory, and reflects the vast wealth of data accumulated since the original JLPT was launched over 25 years ago.

The new JLPT has five levels: N1, N2, N3, N4 and N5. The easiest level is N5 and the most difficult level is N1. N4 and N5 measure the level of understanding of basic Japanese mainly learned in class. N1and N2 measure the level of understanding of Japanese used in a broad range of scenes in actual everyday life. N3 is a bridging level between N1/N2 and N4/N5.

Application forms for JLPT are currently being issued and are available at the Bangalore Nihongo Kyooshi-kai (BNK), 1213, 1st Floor, 22nd Cross, HSR Club Road, HSR Layout Sector 3, Bangalore-560102.

Last date for issue is 10th September 2014 and last date for submission of completed application forms is 12th September 2014. The JLPT exam will be conducted at Christ University on Sunday, December 7th 2014.
