’Maya-in search of her Tantric father’ by Vipin Behari Goyal-a review

Everybody starts it from the beginning. Let us start this time from the end. The end impression that I have after finishing the book ’Maya-in search of her Tantric father’ by Vipin Behari Goyal!

After finishing the book, some lines from the Waste Land of T.S Eliot’s Wasteland had suddenly crossed my mind

gathered far distant, over Himavant.

The jungle crouched, humped in silence.…

How it feels when you sees your death is approaching you-in silent feet, but sure and certain to catch you-sooner or later. Death is not in a hurry-because it knows that you have no power to escape its iron claws! It’s not easy to describe such situation-particularly on paper. Those who work with audiovisual media can only make such death scenes reliable on celluloid- that too who are very efficient with it. I found the same shock that a movie can only provide with the death sequence, with…

School is a beacon of hope in India’s poorest state

It’s a well-known fact that a country develops when its people develop. Development, in a broad sense, is the increase of the literacy rate in a country. Indians can be proud to recollect that one of our finest presidents, and one of the greatest minds of this era, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, came from a poor family. That is how a country grows: When you see small children walking long distances to school because there is no…

The proposition also syncs well with the first of the UN Millennium Development Goals, which call for an eradication of extreme poverty and hunger in the world—i.e., to cut down by half the…

The End of the U.S.-Taliban Talks? with Jonathan Cristol

Despite progress over the last year, Donald Trump effectively ended the latest round of U.S.-Taliban negotiations with a tweet earlier this month. Will talks continue in a more understated way? Does this change anything on the ground in Afghanistan? And what is the Taliban doing in Moscow? Jonathan Cristol, author of "The United States and the Taliban before and after 9/11," discusses all this and more.

Candidates, Calculus, and the Iran Crisis

In choosing whether and how to respond to the attack on Saudi Arabian oil refineries, what is the calculus for determining action? Should the United States maintain its status as the guarantor of the Persian Gulf, protecting the security and integrity of the international energy system? What do the 2020 candidates think?
