Kolkata stadium plunged into darkness during Navratilova media meet
Kolkata, Nov 25 (IANS) The Netaji Indoor stadium’s media room plunged into darkness for around a minute on Wednesday evening during the conference of Tennis Masters where legend Martina Navratilova was addressing the media. Navratilova and Leander Paes lost to Mahesh Bhupathi and Sania Mirza 5-7, 5-7 in the contest which preceded the media meet.

However, power supply was restored after around a minute or so and the players had a hearty laugh about it. In the past, similar failures had marred international and national sporting events at the city’s Eden Gardens and Salt Lake stadium.
