Burma: Is there a solution for Kachin Conflict?

Another round of talks between the Government of Burma and the Kachin Independence Organization (KIO) has ended without having any progress. A delegation of KIO led by Sumlut Gam and Maj-Gen Sumlut Gun Maw had met their counterparts from the government on 13 May playing a part in negotiations in Myitkyina, the capital of Kachin state. The government's side was led by Minister U Aung Min followed by his staff from the Myanmar Peace Centre which is a government-backed body funded by the European Union and the Norwegian government.

3D-Modi: the role played by technology in NaMo’s impressive campaign

There are certainly several factors that helped Mr Narendra Modi , affectionately known among his followers as NaMo, the leader of the BJP, win a landslide victory, while routing the Indian Congress Party, which ruled most of the post-independent India. They are the rampant corruption, the inflation that was beyond control, stagnation felt by the once-vibrant economy and the frustration among the youth due to dwindling job opportunities at home, to name but a few.

PM Modi exuded Asian triumph and contempt for terror

Prime Minister Narendra Modi exuded an Asian execellence with an en-grained market-oriented economics foot-print and total contempt for Mumbai style terror attacks. Both provided the obvious pointers towards what Indo-Lanka relations should be. New Asianism is Modi’s catch word and Sri Lanka would be better off getting on board that band wagon immediately.

Indian Foreign policy towards Sri Lanka; Modi’s emphatic win marginalizes Tamil Nadu

Sri Lanka must be thankful to the Indian electorate for removing a painful influence on the relationship between the two countries. By giving the BJP an outright majority to govern on their own right, the Indian electorate has given a chance for the two countries to breathe more freely and base their relationship on pressing global and regional issues rather than on comparatively minuscule irritants.

Letter from America: Modi’s Win in India

The Indian people have spoken and have elected Narendra Modi resoundingly as their man to lead their impoverished but promising nation of some 1.25 billion people. Modi has been described by many as a ruthless murderer, a fascist, a racist and a bigot, espousing a chauvinist agenda that favor one community, i.e., Hindus, over others in this caste-ridden nation of many creeds. His supporters, on the other hand, see him as a Hitler-like avatar that could work miracles, delivering results that would re-position India in the global arena as a power broker.
