Is Taiwan’s Ongoing Drought a Wake –Up Call for the Rest of the World?
The increased frequency and severity of droughts across the globe is becoming a matter of huge concern. In 2018, the global media was flooded with the news of the capital city of Cape Town of South Africa running out of water as the city experienced once in 311 years drought with little to no rainfall for three consecutive years.

Netaji’s Tryst with Taiwan
At a time when India is commemorating the 125th birth anniversary of the indomitable Netaji Subash Chandra Bose, and his disappearance and passing away is still shrouded in mystery, it is worth a while to revisit a seminal work, Verdict from Formosa: Gallant End of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, authored by Harin Shah, a veteran journalist who visited Taiwan, then called Formosa, in 1946; one year after the tragic air crash in which Netaji was believed to have died.

चीनी आक्रमण का एक वर्ष: ऐसे नतीजे जिनकी उम्मीद नहीं थी
हमला चाहे कितना ही सोच-विचार कर किया जाए, कोई भी व्यक्ति कभी भी हमले की हार-जीत या परिणामों का सटीक अनुमान नहीं लगा सकता। हमले के कारण ऐसी कई घटनाएं होंगी जो अनचाही होंगी और कई बार इसमें ऐसे नुकसान उठाने पड़ सकते हैं जो समझ से परे और अप्रत्याशित होंगे। आक्रमण झेलने वाले पक्ष को हमले से कई बार ऐसे अप्रत्याशित लाभ मिल सकते हैं जिन्हें कर्मों का ही फल समझा जा सकता है!
