International Day of the Girl Child!

Today is International day of the girl child. It’s a day to take a step back and understand the status of gender equality in society. Even after 70 years after independence, India still doesn’t boast of having a high sex ratio. While the Southern state of Kerala registers a satisfactory 1047 females for every 1000 males but  National Capital of Delhi registers a meager 847 females per 1000 males as per the latest National Family

‘लव-जिहाद’ पर एक सोच

आये दिन ‘लव जिहाद’ के ऊपर काफी चर्चा हो रही है। आखिरकार यह ‘लव जिहाद’ है क्या? हाल ही देश के उच्चतम न्यालय ने ‘लव जिहाद’ के एक केस की तहकीकात करने के लिए ‘राष्ट्रीय जांच एजेंसी’ (NIA) को नियुक्त किया है। क्या यह समस्या इतनी संगीन है की इसके पीछे NIA को नियुक्त किया जाना चाहिए? जहां कुरान मे जिहाद का मतलब ‘धरम युद्ध’ है, वहीँ कुछ सूफी सिलसिले के गुरु मानते हैं की

आतंकी तत्वों को रोकने के लिए एक-जुट होना पड़ेगा

हाल ही मे अमेरिका के लास वेगस (एल. वी.) मे एक आतंकवादी ने आम जनता पर गोलियों की बौछार शुरू कर दी। हालांकि आतंकवादी ने इस घिनौने काम के बाद ख़ुदकुशी कर ली, दुखद रूप से डर और आतंक फैलाने के अपने मंसूबे मे वो कामयाब हुआ। सरकारी सूत्रों के अनुसार इस ‘एनकाउंटर’ मे करीबन 60 लोगों की मौत हुई और 530 लोग घायल हुए। और भी चौकाने वाली बात यह है कि स्टीफन क्रैग

Going for a Green Puja helps humanity in the long run

Every year as Durga Puja celebrations take place across the country, a festive mood permeates the atmosphere.

The Linkages Between Indo-US and Indo-Afghan Relations

It is a pertinent question as to how India-Afghanistan relations stagnated[i] from the days of the Strategic Partnership Agreement with the Karzai government in 2011 to the current days of relative disengagement and marginalization of India compared to other big players of the region. The question is aggravated if it is considered that neither country has made a hostile or negative move towards the other during this period. Yet, Afghanistan’s new leadership has resumed its ‘competitive

Pakistani Nuclear Politics: Slippery Slope which strengthens Military Gum Boots

According to me, mainstreaming a nuclear Pakistan with a nuclear deal at current stage is a slippery slope which will only strengthen the military gum boots in Pakistan. A new report by the Carnegie-Stimson[1] collaboration proposes that Pakistan consider the following five nuclear weapon-related initiatives: • Shift declaratory policy from “full spectrum” to “strategic” deterrence. • Commit to a recessed deterrence posture and limit production of short-range delivery vehicles and tactical nuclear weapons. • Lift Pakistan’s

An Insight into the minds of Pakistani hockey players

Sporting encounters between India & Pakistan are the epitome of fierce rivalry. Over-the-top & exaggerated celebrations by the winning team are very common. But the ‘celebrations’ carried out by Pakistan hockey team after the semifinals match against India in Champions Trophy held recently crossed all the limits of exuberation and decency. Spirit of sports was sacrificed at the altar of a ‘middle-finger’. Pakistan hockey team thereafter is in the eye of a storm and has

आ गले लग जा

मफलर, अरविंद केजरीवाल के गले में जाने कब से पड़ा था। अब एक और चीज उनके गले पड़ गई है- नाम है, लालू प्रसाद यादव। मफलर को केजरीवाल ने खुद गले लगाया था, लेकिन लालूजी का केस कुछ अलग है। केजरीवाल चीख-चीखकर कह रहे हैं.. मैंने लालूजी को गले नहीं लगाया, बल्कि उन्होंने जबरन गलबहियां डाल दीं। लेकिन पब्लिक मानने को तैयार नहीं है। गलबहियों का यह उत्सव पटना में नीतीश कुमार के शपथ ग्रहण
