NEW DELHI: In the absence of defending champion P. Hari Krishna, it appears highly unlikely that the boys' title will return to India from the World junior championship, beginning at Istanbul's Golden Age Hotel on Wednesday. Eesha Karavade, the surprise bronze medallist in the girls' section last year, along with Kruttika Nadig, Tania Sachdev, N. Raghavi and donor-entrant D. Harika, seeded six; carry India's medal hopes in the 13-round competition.
