Not dharna, here's 5 ways police reform can actually be done

The events that unfolded in Delhi last month culminating in the dharna, could have provided a great platform for all right-minded citizens, legislators, journalists and opinion-shapers to fix the spotlight firmly on the issue of police reforms. #US #Delhi #Arvind Kejriwal #Q&A #UK #States #Indian Police Service #AAP #constabulary #Police reform

Why Devyani Khobragade should face action

While strong position taken by India is correct from the perspective of upholding the diplomat's immunity, this in no way should be seen as justifying the alleged irregularities committed by Devyani Khobragade. #India #US #LetterstoFP #Devyani Khobragade

Devyani case: India should tell US 'don't mess with us again'

India needs to develop a culture of "I am not turning my other cheek, I am not ignoring your aggression, I am instead going to punch your nose, bash your head, break your knees, etc. whatever it takes for you to NEVER EVER mess with me again." #India #US #Visa fraud #Wages #LetterstoFP #diplomat #Devyani Khobragade #Sangeeta Richards #Wayne May #Alicia Mueller May

In the Devyani Khobragade saga, Indo-US ties biggest victim

The Americans grossly misjudged and miscalculated the response of India, ignoring the fact that Washington chose to up its ante at a time when general elections are less than four months away and no government in New Delhi could have politically afforded to take the American affront lying low. #United States #Barack Obama #diplomacy #ConnectTheDots #Preet Bharara #Nisha Desai Biswal #United Nation #Devyani Khobragade #Sangeeta Richards #India-US diplomacy #Diplomat arrest row

How Iran deal may bring down oil prices, cut Saudi Arabia to size

Saudi Arabia has been the sole decision-maker for years in determining the world oil prices and has been increasing and decreasing its daily output at will, without bothering about the Opec's set rules of business. #Dollar #HowThisWorks #Economy #India #US #Rupee #OPEC #Iran #Saudi Arabia #Abdel Bari-Al-Arousi

Devyani case: Condoning her acts brings shame to India

The MEA has, by its subsequent actions, made it clear that its protests were not about ill-treatment but about the officer's arrest. It is obvious that her father, well versed in the ways of Mantralya and South Block, has been exerting all his influence over present Central and State govts. (both Congress). #Visa fraud #LetterstoFP #Devyani Khobragade #US Marshalls #Sangeeta Richard

Devyani row: How would US react to a similar issue?

Any other country (let's say US) would go mental, if their (lady or man) diplomat is handcuffed, strip searched, and cavity searched. They would go on a monumental trip and their papers would be full of diatribe against the 'barbarism' of the other country. #India #India-US Relations #Devyani Khobdagade #Devyani row

Devyani case: Four questions Preet Bharara must answer

Reminding the Attorney that Devyani Khobargade is a Dy Consul General of Indian Consulate and as per her assertions she was handcuffed and strip-searched to such a ludicrous extreme as probing her cavities, I ask the attorney to clarify on the following: #HowThisWorks #India #Prabhu Dayal #Preet Bharara #Sushilkumar Shinde #New York #Labour laws #nanny #Devyani Khobragade #Underpaid labour #US Consular staff
