Given the joy it has given to the world, the history of Sri Lankan cricket has been strangely neglected. A young author, Nicholas Brookes, has now filled the gap with a masterly study: An Island's Eleven. He shares its rich and often surprising contents as the guest of Peter Oborne and Richard Heller in their latest cricket-themed podcast. In Peter's absence, Roger Alton is co-presenter of this episode.Read the full description here: https://chiswickcalendar.co.uk/episode-95-the-joy-of-sri-lankan-cricket-expertly-distilled/Get in contact by emailing obornehellercricket@outlook.com

Come and join the conversation with the gorgeous Dee Gibson! Dee is a London based Interior Designer, founder of Velvet Orange, Owner of the beautiful Kalukanda House in Sri Lanka and co founder of the Hera Project. Join me as we head back to Dee's formative and inspirational early years, spending time with her civil engineer Grandfather. Soaking in all the design and architectural elements (and kneecap views!) even from a young age spurred a childhood passion in her. Dee tells me about growing up in a traditional Sri Lankan family, with a real focus on education, being directed towards a career in medicine, law or accounting, enabling her to stand her in good stead for the future. Putting her creative side on the back burner, Dee pursued a career in accounting and continued for ten years until a chance moment directed her to a course in Interior Design! Her love for design, the beauty and emotions of spaces lit that fire within her once more and she thrived throughout her course. Soaking up elements like a sponge, Dee knew she was where she was supposed to be! We talk about the timings of things, getting into that world when she did enabled her to really start the career of her dreams and be able to really focus on the parts that she enjoyed and excelled at. In 2007 she launched Velvet Orange, her very own Interior Design Company and 11 years later built her very own boutique hotel called Kalukanda House in beautiful Sri Lanka. Dee tells me the fascinating story behind such a monumental project, explains her ethos and connection to the project, the importance of being eco conscious and using local craftsmen. Not only did Kalukanda House start completely out of the blue and unplanned, everything seemed to slot perfectly into place as a serious of events for Dee. It grew organically, and in such a serendipitous way, and unbelievably Dee had written the idea years and years ago in a notebook she forgot she had!! Next we delve into the amazing Hera Project, a community that Dee has co founded with two other like minded women. They concentrate on a three pronged approach to wellness in the areas of mind, body and business. Dee tells me the importance of gaining strength in all three areas make for positive transformations. Set up from an idea in lockdown, again another chance meeting, Dee was thinking about what kind of retreats she would like to organise when things reopened. Listen as she tells me that "all rounds lead to Kalukanda" and the wonderful energy that it has, often interweaving her journey and creating opportunities for her in the most magical way! The Hera Project is committed to offering a safe space for women to gain strength in all three areas, supporting women especially through periods of transition and alongside other women going through the same, makes a recipe for success! Providing coaching and mentoring, workshops and a 6 month mastermind, culminating in an amazing end experience at the stunning Kalukanda House! Dee & I talk about the importance of having no regrets, how life is so short, leaning into the things that make you happy, igniting your passion and allowing the space for yourself to reach your full potential. Dee is such a beautiful soul, having achieved so much already, an amazing energy and we had an instant connection! She really is a wonderful lady and it was fascinating to learn about her life and journey so far. So excited to see what the future holds!

Sri Lanka's economy is in a free fall for a while now, it is hurtling fast towards bankruptcy. Its food inflation has soared to 57%, and the nation is left with no reserve to import essentials. This crisis is having a crippling effect on its apparel and famous tea industries also -- the mainstays of Sri Lanka's economy. Meanwhile, traders in India are looking to fill the void left by the South Asian neighbour. But some spillover of the Lanka crisis is hurting Indian businesses too, like the auto sector. Try to gauge the overall effect of the crisis on India.   The trouble in Sri Lankan economy had started with the onset of pandemic. A large number of people who anticipated this crisis had started exploring options to stay afloat. Some even turned to cryptocurrency too, which is still unregulated in Sri Lanka. Meanwhile, India too is slowly but firmly moving ahead to regulate it. Recently it had announced to impose 1% TDS crypto assets. And on Wednesday, the government came out with a detailed clarification to address concerns raised by the industry. So as the TDS regime is slated to come into effect from July 1, will it be smooth sailing for domestic crypto exchanges and traders?  Like the cryptocurrencies, the shares of housing finance companies have been falling for quite some time now. And most of them nosedived after the RBI hiked repo rate on May 4. While analysts believe that robust real estate demand may outweigh rate hike impact, there's a section of firms that may be vulnerable to interest rate hikes.  After Dalal Street, let us now turn our focus to the President's Estate in Delhi. The race to Rashtrapati Bhavan has become interesting. NDA's presidential nominee Draupadi Murmu is facing opposition's Yashwant Sinha. She has an edge over Sinha due to the support of a majority in the electoral college. But how does India elect its President? This episode of the podcast shares more.    Watch video

Sri Lanka is in a crisis. Covid-19 has sent the economy into a tailspin, and it is in free fall now. Its Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe recently said that the country's economy has “collapsed”. The spillover of the crisis has reached Indian shores too. ITC has said that its first foreign venture in the hotel space has been hit. Earlier, the 300-million-dollar project in Colombo saw construction being impacted due to the 2019 terror incidents and then the pandemic. In April, a financial daily had reported that automotive firms like Tata Motors, Mahindra & Mahindra, Ashok Leyland, and TVS Motors had stopped exports of vehicle kits to Sri Lanka and halted production at their Sri Lankan assembly units due to its precarious forex reserves and fuel shortages.   According to an India Briefing note by Dezan Shira & Associates, instability in Sri Lanka could affect Indian Oil, Airtel, Taj Hotels, Dabur, Ashok Leyland, Tata Communications, Asian Paints, and State Bank of India. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka's share in India's total exports has declined from 2.16 per cent in FY15 to just 1.3 per cent in the first 10 months of FY22. India's export to Sri Lanka is now nowhere near the 6.7 billion dollars seen in 2014-15. Till January 2022, it stood at 4.49 billion dollars in FY22.   But there is a silver lining too. Since Sri Lanka has been the world's largest supplier of orthodox tea, calls to Indian planters and exporters from foreign buyers of the commodity are pouring in. Big Sri Lankan importers from Iran, Turkey, Iraq, and Russia are reportedly visiting Kolkata and tea plantations in Assam. As a result, at recent Kolkata auctions, the average price for orthodox leaf saw an increase of up to 41 per cent compared to corresponding sales last year. And, the fuel shortage in Lanka is crippling its apparel sector too. According to the US International Trade Administration, the apparel export industry accounts for about 44% of the country's total exports. Many apparel orders from the UK, EU, and Latin American countries are now being diverted to India. Several orders have been given to companies in Tirupur, the hub of the textile industry in Tamil Nadu. Sri Lanka has been a strategically important partner for India. Even as some of our businesses are hit, and some try to fill the void created by the Sri Lankan crisis, India's assistance in this time of need will only lead to better ties with the island nation that has long been leaning towards the Chinese camp.

As the US, UK and other wealthy nations grouse about the prospect of stagflation and risk of recession, people in some emerging nations are facing more perilous questions about how to find medicine to stay alive. A financial crisis gripping Sri Lanka's 23 million people threatens to spread across the developing world and sweep up hundreds of millions more. This week, we explore profoundly different economic climates. The first are emerging markets exemplified by Sri Lanka and burdened with pandemic-related debt, double-digit inflation and food shortages; the second is Qatar, an already rich petro-state that's getting richer thanks to a global energy crisis. Reporter Sudhi Ranjan Sen surveys the chaos in Colombo, where protesters angry with 40% inflation and days-long waits for fuel and cooking gas are demanding the ouster of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. In the words of one Sri Lankan woman who was unable to find pharmaceuticals for her parents: “It's really hard to see somebody die without medicine, because you have the money, you don't have a place to buy the medicine.”  For the wider world, the risk is that Sri Lanka's financial crisis spreads to other developing nations that also face high debt levels, rising interest rates and weakening currencies. Ziad Daoud, Bloomberg's chief emerging markets economist, counts five countries most at risk of following in Sri Lanka's footsteps: Tunisia, El Salvador, Ghana, Ethiopia and Pakistan. Lenders to Sri Lanka stand to lose half of their investment, Daoud tells host Stephanie Flanders, but it's unclear how the island nation will treat its debts to China. In the past, China has been unwilling to join multilateral agreements to write down debt. But what happens if other lenders forgive much of Sri Lanka's debt, while the nation makes good on what it owes China? Finally, correspondent Simone Foxman relays the remarkable turn of events in Qatar, which this week hosted the Qatar Economic Forum. Until very recently, analysts questioned the wisdom of Qatar's plan to boost its liquefied natural gas exports by 60%, at a cost of $30 billion. Where analysts figured Qatar was overestimating demand, Russia's war on Ukraine has European nations lining up for Qatari energy. Meantime, the Persian Gulf nation is readying its stadiums ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Doha, set for November and December. By one estimate, the nation has pumped $350 billion into badly needed infrastructure and other improvements ahead of the games. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Today the Sri Lankan prime minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe, said the country's economy has completely collapsed and needs international support. Addressing parliament, he said a donor conference would be convened to seek financial assistance from China, Japan and India. Dhananath Fernando is the Chief Operating Officer at the independent policy think tank the Advocata Institute in Colombo. He tells us what might have prompted the prime minister to conclude that an economic collapse had been reached. It's estimated that as many as one thousand people have died in an earthquake in Afghanistan and another 1500 people have been injured. The Taliban has called on aid agencies to help reach the worst-affected areas but so far few have been able to reach those in need. Head of delegation in Afghanistan for the International Committee of the Red Cross, Eloi Fillion joins us from Kabul. Prices in the UK are continuing to rise at their fastest rate for 40 years due to climbing food, energy and fuel costs.

Their fame coincides with the huge wave of retail investors coming into the equity markets. Our India Business Correspondent Nikhil Inamdar explains.

Meera Srinivasan, talking about the Sri Lankan government's lack of planning to deal with an impending economic disaster, reported, “Hospitals are putting off surgeries without enough medical supplies, ink and newsprint shortages have forced newspapers to suspend editions, and schools have postponed term exams because there is no paper to print the questions.” Moreover, Sri Lanka's foreign currency reserve has virtually dried up and shortages of food and fuel have caused prices to soar. In early April, people took to the streets of Colombo in protest. Much of the popular anger for the economic crisis has been directed at the country's president. Why did Sri Lanka default on its debt? Were the signs of misgovernance visible long before the crisis struck? What political cost does it impose on the people? In this episode of Interpreting India, Meera Srinivasan joins Shibani Mehta to look at this crisis, Sri Lanka's worst since it gained independence in 1948. --Episode ContributorsMeera Srinivasan is the Sri Lanka correspondent of The Hindu and she also covers the Maldives. She has written extensively on the post-war challenges of Sri Lanka.

We're talking all about the different crises gripping global energy markets in this programme. First, an incident at an LNG facility in Texas has caused uncertainty over global supplies, with futures prices plummeting. It could be months before the plant is back online. Europe - which is already dealing with reduced supplies from Russia - now faces a shortage. In Sri Lanka, the fuel crisis continues, as people are asked to work a four day week. With the whole world seemingly facing supply disruption, President Joe Biden has announced he'll visit Saudi Arabia. We'll also visit Denmark and Tanzania, where innovative solutions are being found to keep energy flowing. To discuss these issues, Sam Fenwick is joined by Marketplace's Andy Uhler in Texas, and Sharon Brettkelly from the Detail podcast on Radio New Zealand. We'll also hear from the Sri Lankan political writer Asanga Abeyagoonasekera. Elsewhere in the programme, further fears about a decaying tanker in the Red Sea off Yemen. The UN's David Gressly tells us why it matters. Sticking with supply issues, women's sanitary products are getting harder to access in the US. We'll hear about that from Dana Cohen from California manufacturer Cora. (Picture: a gas terminal burns in Poland; Credit: Getty Images).

We have an exciting announcement....AND, a story about Sri Lanka and coffee history we think you're really going to like. Sri Lankan coffee has delicious notes of chocolate and caramel. But it's basically impossible to find, and we're going to bet you've never drank it. But that's really odd, because Sri Lanka has the perfect climate to grow coffee, and was once one of the biggest coffee growing countries in the world. But Sri Lanka was the victim of an ecological ticking time bomb. And this bomb is still ticking, and is going to explode again. In this episode of Adventures in Coffee, producer James Harper takes co-hosts Scott and Jools on an adventure back in time, across Ethiopia, Yemen, Sri Lanka to trace the origins of this ticking bomb, and what it's going to take to defuse it. —Subscribe to Adventures in Coffee here: https://bit.ly/300V4jSListen to Jonathan's guest appearance on negative coffee advertising here: https://bit.ly/3uOXYc0Read Stuart McCook's excellent book, Coffee Is Not Forever: https://bit.ly/3320robListen to James' stories about El Salvador on his Filter Stories channel: https://spoti.fi/3Lcnuhg Help other people find the show by leaving a rating on Spotify: https://spoti.fi/3JYduHY Help others find the show by creating a screengrab of this episode on your podcast player and sharing it on your Instagram stories.

The country is facing fuel shortages and soaring food prices, with some Sri Lankans forced to skip meals. Anger over the government's handling of the crisis has led to violent protests. Mr Wickremesinghe was appointed in an attempt to defuse the protests. Also in the programme: A Russian battalion lost almost all of its armoured vehicles in a failed attempt to cross a river near Severodonetsk in eastern Ukraine, according to the UK's Ministry of Defence.
