A tribute to the magic called: Rain


A liquefied slice of heaven fell on a rose petal one day

It toggled, turned, danced and swayed

As it moved, it shone different shades of red and purple hue

The shades changed as it made its way gliding down the velvety rue

Then another drop of diamond fell gently on the red carpet as it exuded sweet perfume

That one too made its way to…

The Predicament of Poverty

We called him 'Bapu' and he called us 'Bapu' too! Every time we visited Hanuman Sarange's farm, Bapu would greet us "Ram Ram Bapuuu" with a faint smile on his wrinkled face. A few months passed like this and when we got some time alone, I asked bapu about his life and how he ended up with his brother. He started talking, looking away in void, as if his life story was…

The U.S. Foreign Service and the Importance of Professional Diplomacy, with Nicholas Kralev

Professional diplomats are made not born, says Nicholas Kralev of the Washington International Diplomatic Academy. It's not enough to be a people person: training is needed in specific skills. Sadly, many Americans don't realize how diplomats' successes or failures can affect their own security and prosperity. Even U.S. presidents often don't appreciate the Foreign Service. And under Trump, State Department professionals are leaving in droves.

Uncertainties About America's Global Reliability

Doubts about America's reliability as a guarantor and support of the liberal international order have been increasing since the 2016 election. What impact is this having on America's closest and most critical relationships?

European Futures in the Shadow of American Disengagement, with Andrew Michta

Europe is going through deep structural changes, says Andrew Michta of the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies. He argues that it may become "a "Europe of clusters," where countries even within the EU will align themselves differently depending on their economic or security interests. In any case, these shifts are largely driven by internal factors such as the migration crisis, not by U.S. policy towards Europe.
