We should accept that China is not our friend

Monday, 29 Sep 2014 | KV Seetharamaiah | Hassan

The third flag meeting between the armies of India and China has resolved the incursion issue for now, leading to the withdrawal of Chinese troops from India's Chumar area in Ladakh.

Bilawal Bhutto’s Kashmir jingoism is ridiculous

Saturday, 27 Sep 2014 | M Kumar | New Delhi

It is laughable for Mr Bilawal Bhutto, son of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and chief of the Pakistan Peoples Party, to say that he shall take back all of Kashmir for Pakistan.

Temporary break
