Inter stay in the hunt

Inter Milan came from behind to beat Fiorentina 2-1 in an entertaining match in the Italian league on Thursday and stay in touch with leaders Roma.
Giuseppe Rossi continued his fine run of form since returning from two years of injuries, scoring from the penalty spot on the hour mark to take his tally to six goals in seven matches. Joaquin had been pulled back in the area by Juan Jesus.
It was only the second goal Inter had conceded this season.
Esteban Cambiasso leveled in acrobatic fashion in the 72nd minute and Jonathan scored what was to prove the winner seven minutes from time to cap an all-round performance from the Inter fullback.
Inter moved level with Juventus and Napoli, two points behind Roma. Fiorentina are three points further back after their first loss of the season.
Inter had been ordered to keep one end of San Siro — the Curva Nord — closed as punishment for fan racism during the draw against Juventus.
Fiorentina were missing three key players as new signing Mario Gomez was injured, along with David Pizarro and Juan Cuadrado. Captain Manuel Pasqual added to the Tuscan side’s injury problems as he was forced off with a thigh injury 10 minutes from halftime and was replaced by Marcos Alonso.
Inter coach Walter Mazzarri started with the same team that had won the past three matches, including a 7-0 victory at Sassuolo on Sunday. And they almost took the lead inside the opening minute as Yuto Nagatomo forced a smart save out of Viola goalkeeper Neto. Fiorentina had lost their last 12 trips to Inter Milan, with the last victory coming in May, 2000. They had to return empty-handed once again.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
