World War II: Time to mark India's contributions

If the world rapidly forgot about the Indian role in the Second World War, independent India did a lot worse. Its political leaders trivialised the war by dismissing it a colonial enterprise. Seventy years later, the time has come for political India to put the war in its proper historical context and celebrate the extraordinary contributions of the Indian people.

World War-II mistakes: What should Abe do?

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the World War-II. This day should have been used to reflect on the pain inflicted by the war.

Xi Jinping visit - a wasted opportunity to break new ground

The Chinese diplomacy seems to have erred on the side of aggression. A golden opportunity "to make a new beginning" was lost mainly due to the face-off in Ladakh. Modi genuinely wanted a much higher level of engagement, but the Chinese President failed to seize the opportunity.

Yassin's killing: Possible Impact

The targeted assassination of Sheikh Ahmad Yassin, the founder of the militant Hamas group, by Israel was a dangerous act of escalation. Hamas, locked in a violent campaign with Israel, responded to the outrage with threats to "send death to every house, every city and every street in Israel." Hamas has avenged Israeli targeted killings with suicide bombings in the past.

Yuan appreciation and China's battle with Inflation

Although Yuan appreciation is warranted, politicians in the US should be aware that this is not a panacea for global imbalances and especially their huge trade deficit. Appreciation of the Yuan will not change the import needs of the US and the widening of the trade deficit to $48.1 billion in March.

Zardari and the curious incident of NAB
