China – The Punishment Due

China – The Punishment Due To, Mr. Xi Jinping Chairman of the Central Military Commission People’s Republic of China Indian politicians have always been soft about matters regarding our country’s borders. You however, should not for a moment, think their encroachments will go unchallenged. Or that our army doesn’t stand a chance. The Beating Retreat ceremony that happens at our Attari (and […]



Dr. David Lagrew – Saving Mothers with Empathy & Innovation

More women in labour and new mothers die in the US than in any other high-income country. And the CDC Foundation estimates that 60% of these deaths are preventable! 60%!! In one of the most developed countries in the world. And since 1990, only 13 countries in the world have seen a rise in maternal death rates. The US is […]



The Determining Fire

Image: source Late on 15th night, I read a news piece about 500 trained women personnel of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) being the first women contingent to be deployed in high-altitude posts along the India-China border. I was thrilled. However, I’m also sure many may have asked, ‘would they be able to handle it’? Or, ‘can they meet the grueling job […]



A Rural Electric Ride

While a lot of us are busy in our world of self-indulgence, it’s reassuring to know there are Indians like Ratan Tata, who’d go the distance with regard to businesses that positively impact to one or more segments of the population.

Attention!

Allan Massie said, “Do you know what a soldier is, young man? He’s the chap who makes it possible for civilized folk to despise war.” Last night I watched a movie called ‘Holiday‘. An action thriller about a soldier on vacation who uncovers a dangerous plot. I noticed something rather shameful with the crowd at the theatre during the last 3 odd […]



Your Time Will Come

Three days ago, I was rushing to office after a meeting. The day somehow seemed very different. Special, in an inexplicable way. The meeting had gone well too. While waiting at a signal light, lost in the magical voice of the very beautiful Amy MacDonald singing ‘Your time will come’, when I suddenly noticed a teacher of mine from school, standing […]



The Indian Land Rocket

I recently watched a movie called Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, a biographical based on the early life of ‘The Flying Sikh’ Milkha Singh, an Indian track and field sprinter who took the sprinting world by storm in the ’50s and ’60s. He is, according to me, one of the finest heroes the nation has ever produced. ‘Bhaag’ is Hindi for ‘run’, essentially a phrase encouraging Milkha to […]
