Another Unmanned Crossing Tragedy

It is tempting to suggest that discourse by public figures in India is beginning to be vastly influenced by the daily soap of shouting and slanging matches on the so-called news channels. Just as the self-opinionated and screaming TV anchors have no qualms in peddling fiction laced with defamatory statements and even straight abuses, the public figures in India do not think twice in using inelegant, false and libellous language for rivals and critics.

Making History at the 38th Parallel: Korean Leaders Pledged to Turn Armistice to Peace Treaty

History is awash with leaders who had been determined to achieve things that were closer to their individual hearts without playing to the gallery.

Is Nepal Heading For Political Instability Again..?

Merger of two political parties is not an easy proposition anywhere, more so in Nepal, where personalities, and ideologies matter. Though Communism is their basic core philosophy, the Maoist Centre, MC, and the Communist Party of Nepal -Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN -UML), the two parties that have come together as the Left Alliance to run the Himalayan country, have divergence in their moorings and approach to a host of issues. The result is irritants that refuse to fade away even after the two parties had reached a seven - point deal on merger in mid-February, and have been in the saddle for a while.
