Delhi gangrape anniversary: Revisiting the fateful Munirka bus stop

A girl and boy got on a bus with strangers in it at around 9:30 pm that night from the bus stop outside Munirka market, Delhi. They had just watched Life of Pi, like a lot of us, at a theatre at Saket, and had taken an auto there so they could catch a bus. Life would never remain the same for the boy. The girl is no more. Were still at that bus stop. #Delhi #ToWhatEffect #Rape #Delhi gangrape #women safety #Nirbhaya fund #16 December

Is China buying a $42 bn insurance policy from Pakistan?

The only way of looking at the Chinese promise of pouring $42 billion worth investment in Pakistan, if it turns out to true this time around, is that this is in lieu of the help that Pakistan is going to give to China with regard to jihadist forces active in Chinas restive Xinjiang region. #China #Terrorism #Pakistan #Jihad #diplomacy #ToWhatEffect #Xinjiang

BJP win lifts markets, but road to economic recovery may be long
