Nepal quake and what we must do: India must repay its debt to Gorkhas

PM Modi did well to jump to its rescue #Debt #Gorkhas #Kathmandu #Narendra Modi #Nepal #Nepal earthquake #NewsTracker #Relief to Nepal Quake-Hit

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.

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

Forget Kissinger, India should use Arthashastra for world domination

Of all the diamonds in our backyard -- Aryabhatiya, Ashtadhyayi, Mudrarakshasa – the most sober, ruthless and practical is Chanakya’s Arthashastra. #Arthashastra #Chanakya #China #Henry Kissinger #Indian Economy #InMyOpinion #Mao Tse Tung #US #Vladimir Lenin #World economy #World GDP
