Indo-US nuclear deal: Why is Modi pursuing what looks like a total loss in N-energy?

The approval of the insurance agreement means that all suppliers, not only Americans, will now be freed from liability, and the Indian taxpayer would pick up the tab should there be, heaven forbid, a nuclear calamity. #Chernobyl #China #clean energy #India #Japan #Nuclear energy #Republic Day #United States #US #Vietnam #World

Laughing at ancient Indian science: Why critics need to embrace some humility

While some extreme claims have been made about ancient Indian science, it is better if scientists and journalists do not dismiss all claims as ipso facto absurd. Newtonian science itself was overturned in just over a 100 years. #Ancient Indian science #Indian Medicine #Indian Science Congress #Marxist historians #Pythagoras Theorem

Parsing the Sirisena win in Sri Lanka: Is this good for India?

Why President Obama’s Republic Day visit will be a disaster for India

It is true that Indian involvement in Afghanistan will help keep the Pakistanis at bay, but the blood and treasure we have to spend is immense. On balance, I think it’s a bad idea, but that might well be the pound of flesh the Americans want. #China #diplomacy #India #Narendra Modi #Obama #Obama's Republic Day visit #Republic Day #United States

The Sanskrit non-controversy: Why it is indeed a superior language

People have thundered that the Sanskrit decision is preventing Indian students from aspiring to go to German universities, which is not true – most university education in Germany is conducted in the medium of English. #Angela Merkel #german #Germany #India #InMyOpinion #Kendriya Vidyalayas #Panini #Sanskrit

China’s maritime threat: How India let its best bet Vizhinjam be sabotaged
