Juhi meets Mamata
What was Juhi Chawla doing at Mamata Banerjee's residence?
The co-owner of the Kolkata team had visited the Railway Minister's home in Kalighat on Monday to invite her to see the Kolkata versus Chennai match at Eden on Tuesday.
However, the Railway Minister had to leave for Delhi on Monday and she left just after talking to Chawla. She said that if she goes, she would enjoy the match from the galleries.
Later, Juhi said, "Yes, it would have been great to have her at Eden." But her duties as the Central Railway Minister are much bigger than to be present at a cricket match.
However, for Juhi, the Bollywood heroine, it was indeed great to meet Miss Banerjee at the headquarter of Trinamul Congress and spend 20 minutes with her.

It was a delightful timing from Sourav Ganguly, once again!
He had asked Rohan Gavaskar to bowl against Bangalore when Rohan's illustrious father Sunil Gavaskar was commentating.
The day after, when Gavaskar was attending a question-answer session with the trainees of the Pailan cricket academy, a boy could not restrain the temptation to query about his son's future with the Kolkata team.
"It's good that he has found a place in Kolkata. Now he has to perform when he gets the opportunity and help the team to do better", said the batting legend.
Rohan, however, did not get the chance to bat for his team in his first match and his only over had costed his team 11 runs. Rohan would definitely try to contribute more to the team's cause when he gets another opportunity.
Incidentally, the junior Gavaskar too, had joined the rebel Indian League when the Indian T20 championship began two years before. Last year, all those cricketers involved in the rebel league were allowed to return to the domestic circuit and the ex-Bengal skipper found a place in Dada's team.
Fake tickets, 3 arrested
With the introduction of Computers, it's now so easy to design fake tickets. A professional group was working on it for Kolkata matches at Eden. Designs were made in computers and the tickets were printed digitally. But, Kolkata Police caught three of them, namely Md Faiyaz, Sarfraj Ahmed and Mirajul Haque. And recovered at least 130 fake tickets.
Faiyaz was caught first outside Eden. 30 fake tickets were found. Later, from him, Police got the name of Sarfaraz and from his house around hundred fake tickets were found. Sarfaraz used to scan the tickets and the fake tickets were printed at Mirajul's press in Keshab Sen street. Police arrested him, too. From Mirajul's press, all the CPUs, mother CDs, paper for printing tickets were ceased.
Police believes, there are more people involved in the crime. The hunt will be on, said the DCDD 1, Dayamanti Sen.
