DIALOGUE IS THE ONLY WAY OUT TO SOLVE DIFFERENCES OVER BORDER

INDIA AND CHINA NEED PEACE IN THE REGION FOR SPEEDY DEVELOPMENT
Author: Binoy Viswam - Published 18-06-2020 10:43 GMT-0000
The escalation of tension across India -China border is a matter of great concern for all peace-loving people. It took an unexpected turn when 20 Indian soldiers were killed at Galwan valley. Those martyrs will be remembered as heroes of the nation. We hope that their families will be taken care of by the government. Though the Chinese side did not reveal their casualties, reports say that they also had damages including loss of human lives. Cross border interventions by any neighbour could not be tolerated by any country with self-respect. Territorial encroachment is nothing but attempt for territorial expansionism. In the past also China had expressed her affinity to that.

The surreptitious intrusion of Chinese Army into Ladakh in India in the first week of May has made many turn to the pages of history to appreciate the scope and merits of the India – China (Sino – Indian) border dispute over Aksai Chin area.

DEVELOPMENT FINANCE TO RECORD HISTORICAL FALL IN 2020

CHALLENGE IS TO AVERT TOTAL COLLAPSE AND FOOD INSECURITY
Author: Gyan Pathak - Published 18-06-2020 08:31 GMT-0000
The threat to human life from COVID-19 and food insecurity is most likely to put greater challenges before all the countries of the world, especially the least developed and developing countries. A historical fall in the development finance in 2020 coupled with likelihood of second wave of COVID-19 will be an additional challenge to surmount.

Trump lies. Habitual dishonesty, whether it is masking the jobs crisis, the pandemic, or downplaying racism, is his signature feature. It has cost lives and threatens democracy.

RACISM AND ISLAMOPHOBIA ARE NOW GLOBAL ISSUES

BOTH HAVE INHERENT STAYING POWER WITH SUPPORT BASE
Author: Amulya Ganguli - Published 15-06-2020 12:29 GMT-0000
Impressive as the worldwide demonstrations are against white racism, it will be unrealistic to expect their impact to be long-lasting. It is a safe bet that their tempo will subside in a month’s time and the world will return more or less to what it was before George Floyd’s sadistic murder by a white policeman. Floyd has become a part of history, of course, along with others such as Rodney King, who was also a victim of white racism. But it will be foolhardy to expect that prejudice and intolerance based on colour are now on their way out.

China and the coronavirus is all about markets. If in Wuhan, it was a ‘wet market’ where the virus got a foothold before taking off to climes across the world, the coronavirus has returned to roost in another market, this time in capital Beijing – the Xinfadi wholesale vegetable market – prompting Chinese in prominent posts to say, “It’s time to remind the Chinese people that the virus has not gone away!”

TENSION AT INDIA-NEPAL BORDER IS MOST UNFORTUNATE

NEW DELHI MUST WORK FOR NORMALISING RELATIONS
Author: Arun Srivastava - Published 13-06-2020 09:32 GMT-0000
The BJP leadership, especially the Prime Minister Narendra Modi who claims to be the custodian and public face of nationalism has miserably let down the Indian nationalism and put the country in a bad light. In the annals of the century old India-Nepal relationship this was for the first time that Nepali forces opened fire on the border killing one Indian farmer.

PAKISTAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAMME IS ON AN EXPANSION SPREE

TOTAL WEAPONS MAY GO UPTO 250 WITHIN NEXT FIVE YEARS

Pakistan which has been developing and rapidly expanding a diverse nuclear arsenal since its first and so far only series of nuclear weapon explosive tests in May 1998 is under suspect among the peace-loving scientists some of whom are Pakistanis. The lack of official information – a deliberate policy in Pakistan alike other nuclear power countries possessing nuclear arsenal including India, is in the way of construction of estimates of Pakistan’s spending on its nuclear weapons programme more so when this cost is likely not a large share of its overall military spending.
