ONE DAY SUN SHOULD RUN THE EARTH

FUTURE ENERGY NEEDS WILL BE MET BY ROOF-TOP GEN SETS
Author: Anjan Roy - Published 22-09-2018 10:56 GMT-0000
As we were scurrying across to escape the relentless scorching sun into the cool comforts of the exhibition halls at Greater Noida Exposition Centre, Ms Helena Li was looking around rather wistfully. It was so much of wasted opportunity.

PEACE IS IMPERATIVE FOR HEALTH

ASIA BEARS THE BRUNT OF ARMS CONFLICT
Author: Dr. Arun Mitra - Published 21-09-2018 12:02 GMT-0000
The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. Two decades later, in 2001, the General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and cease-fire. The United Nations invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.

NAIPAUL: A SELF-CONFESSED EXILE FOR EVER

KNOCKED AT DOORS, AND WENT BEHIND CURTAINS
Author: Sushil Kutty - Published 13-08-2018 13:03 GMT-0000
Sir Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul should have been given the honour of being the first man sent to Outer Space, the spaceship programmed not to ever return. He was that kind of man – a surly exile, with a dark presence. A man who saw warts before he found beauty, if ever. The child of indentured labour, he laboured to cast a critical eye. To the point it came natural to him.

PUNJABI AIYAR ALL SET TO CRACK JOKES AT IMRAN BASH

CURIOUSLY SACHIN TENDULKAR IS NOT ON GUEST LIST
Author: Aditya Aamir - Published 02-08-2018 10:34 GMT-0000
Navjot Singh Sidhu has the makings of a Mani Shankar Aiyar. Except that Aiyar can hardly make anyone laugh and Sidhu laughs from deep down in his throat at the lamest of jokes. Aiyar and Sidhu will not make good roommates. Sidhu will laugh at every Aiyar sentence and Aiyar will be left checking his wrist watch at every crack Sidhu makes. Genuine humour is neither man’s forte though both have a way with words.

AND THEY SAY HE IS A WORDSMITH

A LESSON ON TWO THAROOR COULD LEARN FROM COUNTRYMEN
Author: Aditya Aamir - Published 13-07-2018 11:52 GMT-0000
The Malayali is a global citizen. Some call the Malayali the ‘Sardar’ of the South. Like the Sikh, Malayalis are found in all corners of the Earth. The Gujarati, too. But the Malayali temperament kind of matches that of the Sikh. This is a viewpoint. But look hard and one might pop out of a wigwam or a teepee.

MOUNTAINS AND THE MOLEHILLS

NOTHING EXISTS WITHOUT A COMPARISON
Author: Sushil Kutty - Published 09-07-2018 09:44 GMT-0000
Bill Clinton writes in his new book 'The Missing President': “When you find a mountain to expose in one person or party, you have to pick a molehill on the other side and make it into a mountain to avoid being accused of bias. The built-up molehills also have large benefits: increased coverage on the evening news, millions of retweets, and more talk-show fodder. When the mountains and molehills all look the same, campaigns and governments devote too little time and energy debating the issues that matter most to our people. Even when we do that, we’re often drowned out by the passion of the day.”

MODI LOOKS BEATEN BY THE WEATHER AND POLL

PUSILLANIMITY OF PERSONAL INTEREST
Author: Aditya Aamir - Published 07-07-2018 16:29 GMT-0000
‘Personal interest’ shouldn’t overshadow ‘national interest’. One journalist knows this better than most. He once let his scooped out journalist mind report a coup that wasn’t a coup. Divested of the thought rather ingloriously, he ventured out only to ‘Walk the Talk’ with politicians and celebrities, quizzing them about their personal interests. One such was Kashmiri Congress leader Saifuddin Soz whose personal interest in Pakistan holding on to POK goes against India’s ‘national interest’!

THE SIMPLE PRESCRIPTION FOR PEACE

SPENDING ON NUCLEAR ARMS BIG THREAT TO HEALTHCARE
Author: Dr. Arun Mitra - Published 29-06-2018 11:12 GMT-0000
July the 7th will always be remembered as a historical day. On this day in 2017 the world community decided to vote for complete nuclear disarmament and save the world from catastrophe that could threaten the very existence of mankind. It wasn’t an easy task. The UN General Assembly passed a Treaty Prohibiting Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) with 122 countries voting in favour of the resolution. Only one country, the Netherlands voted against while Singapore abstained. It is an irony that none of the nuclear armed countries, the USA, Russia, China, England, France, Israel, India, Pakistan and North Korea participated in the deliberations. All the countries who voted for the resolution withstood pressures of all kinds, threats, blackmail, economic allurements, nuclear security umbrella etc. from the powerful nuclear weapon possessing countries and voted with one voice to declare all activities related to nuclear weapons, including their possession, manufacture, putting them on alert, trade, sale etc, as illegal.

THE OCTOPUS IN THE NEWSROOM

TRUTH BECOMES BIGGEST CASUALTY OF FAKE NEWS

‘Postcard News’ stands branded as fake news ever since its editor tweeted a clearly false news. Sunday morning US President Donald Trump added Washington Post to the list, opining (not a reporter’s word) that if WaPo employees go on a long strike “we would get rid of Fake News for an extended period of time.”

O’NEILL’S ‘LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT’ IS A GREAT PRODUCTION

JEREMY IRONS MESMERISES IN THIS SEMI-AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL PLAY
Author: E D Rampell - Published 15-06-2018 13:19 GMT-0000
The Bristol Old Vic Production of Long Day’s Journey Into Night, currently being staged at Los Angeles, is a masterful rendition of Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece about the human condition. The British cast is led by the venerable Jeremy Irons, who won an Oscar for 1990’s Reversal of Fortune, and Lesley Manville, who was Academy Award-nominated this year for portraying Daniel Day-Lewis’ sadistic sister in Phantom Thread.
