Nasheed can leave indian mission: male

Former Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed can leave the Indian high commission where he has taken refuge because the warrant for his arrest has expired, the government said on Thursday.
Opposition leader Mr Nasheed has said he would remain at the Indian high commission until authorities assure him that he will not be arrested and will be free to campaign for presidential elections due in September.
“Mr Nasheed is a free man and he can walk out of the embassy,” government spokesman Masood Imad said. “Police will not arrest him because the arrest warrant expired last night.”
Mr Imad said the police told courts that they could not reach Mr Nasheed, who took shelter at the embassy compound to evade an arrest warrant issued by a magistrate after he failed to turn up at his trial on Sunday.
“The court has not fixed a date for the next hearing and there is no threat of arrest.. He (Nasheed) has nothing to fear,” Mr Imad said.

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.
