India's fight against colonial imperialism was rooted in cultural re-awakening

African Americans and native Indian tribes have been fighting a long battle against systemic injustices meted out to them in America. Affirmative action by itself has neither assuaged these wounds nor set right the injustices that they have faced. The protests in America after the death of George Floyd have turned violent with the destruction of property and large scale rioting. Protest groups have taken down statues of colonial and racist figures such as Christopher Columbus, Confederate General Robert E Lee and slave trader Edward Colston. The protests have also spread to Europe where protestors have sought the removal of imperialist and racist icons that have adorned public spaces such as Robert Clive, Baden-Powell and Winston Churchill. Unfortunately, even Mahatma Gandhi’s statue was not spared for the views he held during his formative years in South Africa. ........Read more

Health experts warn of emerging threat of Nipah virus

A deadly virus called Nipah carried by bats has already caused human outbreaks across South and South East Asia and has “serious epidemic potential”, global health and infectious disease specialists said on Monday. The virus, identified in 1999 in Malaysia and Singapore, has sparked outbreaks with mortality rates of between 40% and 90% and spread thousands of kilometres to Bangladesh and India - yet there are no drugs or vaccines against it, they said. “Twenty years have passed since its discovery, but the world is still not adequately equipped to tackle the global health threat posed by Nipah virus,” said Richard Hatchett, chief executive of the CEPI Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, which is co-leading a Nipah conference this week in Singapore. ........Read more

UK court dismisses Pak's claim over Nizam's £35 m deposit

India beat Pakistan in court, when the United Kingdom high court ruled in favour of the seventh Nizam, Mir Osman Ali Khan, and his grandsons in the 70-year-long Hyderabad funds case (for £35 million). A furious Pakistan attacked the judgment and questioned Hyderabad’s accession to India. In light of the heightened war of words on Kashmir, Islamabad accused Delhi of “illegally annexing Hyderabad in violation of international law”, and claim-ed the Nizam had to make “efforts to defend his people and state from the Indian invasion” in 1948. The court rejected Pakis-tan’s claim that the fund deposited with its then high commissioner, Habib Ibrahim Rahimtoola, £1 million at the time, was payment for arms shipments to thwart Hyder-abad’s merger, or a gift. India explained that the case had been the subject of earlier proceedings in the 1950s when “the UK House of Lords set aside the proceedings brought by the Nizam claiming the fund as Pakistan invoked state immunity”. But in 2013, Pakistan commenced fresh proceedings, waiving that immunity. The UKHC rejected a subsequent attempt to discontinue the proceedings, as “an abuse of process”.........Read more

Explainer: How important is Hong Kong to the rest of China?

Concerns over Hong Kong’s political and economic future are growing as pro-democracy protests drag on and turn increasingly violent, and China makes clear that forceful intervention is possible. An intervention by Chinese troops could seriously damage Hong Kong’s standing as a stable international financial center and a gateway for global capital flowing into the world’s second-largest economy. No other Chinese city, not even Shanghai, could step into that role in the foreseeable future. While China still has extensive capital controls and often intervenes in its financial markets and banking system, Hong Kong is one of the most open economies in the world and one of the biggest markets for equity and debt financing. The size of Hong Kong’s economy may only be equivalent to 2.7% of mainland China’s now, down from 18.4% in 1997 when it reverted to Chinese rule, but the territory punches above its weight due to its world-class financial and legal systems. All that is possible due to its unique system of governance. Under the ‘one country, two systems’ formula agreed as part of Britain’s handover of the territory to China, Hong Kong is guaranteed liberties which are unavailable on the mainland such as freedom of expression and an independent judiciary. ........Read more

When all the figures are gathered, another draft shall be prepared. Committees are working on it," a senior officer from the committee, which met in May, told IANS.

According to the findings, India's population will grow from 1,211 million in 2011 to 1,536 million in 2035, a jump of 26.8 per cent. Another set of findings said the percentage of the population in the age group of above 60 will grow from 8.6 to 15.4 per cent.........Read more
