DOKLAM DUMPLINGS!

Post-Edit

TROOPS BEGIN PULLBACK on 28/Aug.


Rajan Grover-fnbworld By Rajan Grover

 

PM Modi and Xi Ping-fnbworld-Rajan Grover

Having tasted its new found economic wealth and military might, China is now emerging as a revisionist and expansionist power. It has been on the roll since a decade or so and is behaving uncouth defying all the major powers and established international norms. With the West and US influence on decline, particularly after the change of guard in White House and its subsequent revocation of TPP (Trans-pacific economic partnership), China seems to be in a hurry to become the global cop. It is running territorial and maritime disputes with almost all of its neighbours. The Doklam standoff with India and Bhutan must also be seen in the continuity of its efforts to change the world order and expand its boundaries in accordance with its own prerogative...

TRUMP MOCKTAIL


Cecil Victor-fnbworld By Cecil Victor


Donald Trump-fnbworld-cecil victor

In the Panchatantra Tales India has a compendium of episodes that have a moral message. The current frenetic series of diplomatic exchanges between leaders from different parts of the globe dealing with their respective perspectives of world order brings to the fore the episode of the monkey and the squabbling cats. American President Donald Trump (of course, who else?) met Arab leaders in West Asia recently and he played the Panchatantra monkey to the hilt (no wonder he paid high tributes to India for giving him a truly iconic transactional mascot to emulate in his “America First” policy). He talked Saudi Arabia (the fountainhead of Wahabi Sunni Islamic fundamentalism practiced by al Qaeda and ISIS) into buying American weapons worth dollars 350 billion– to fight terrorism (of the Iranian Shia kind) – then he met the ruler of Qatar and sold him dollar 12 billion worth of F-15 fighter aircraft....

ISRAEL: FAVORED FRIEND


Rajan Grover-fnbworld By Rajan Grover


Israeli army women-fnbworld-rajan grover

Foreign policy of a country is like a river which never flows straight. It has natural bends on its way. This holds particularly true for India-Israel relations. From voting against Israel's admission to the United Nations in 1949 to establishing formal diplomatic relations with it in 1992, the relations between the two nations have developed slowly, steadily but surely to reach at the present level. The proposed 3-days visit of India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Israel next month (July 4, 2017), the first by an Indian PM, to mark the 25th anniversary of diplomatic ties...

Torture Tools-fnbworld-Ashis Nandy

Years ago, an agitated Turkish scholar in Washington gave me a book on torture. It was a handbook meant not for the victims, physicians or human rights activists who fight torture, but for torturers.

The one who gave me the book was outraged by it; she thought it to be a weird instance of America’s cultural decadence induced by its global dominance...

TRIBUTE/JOHN ABERCROMBIE

 

Restless for ‘TIMELESS’ 

 

Ravi V Chhabra- John Abercrombie-fnbworld By Ravi V. Chhabra


It was a night of unease and my restlessness sprang from the loss of a musical genius for whom I so wished to do an obit. His passing away at 72 reminded me grimly of earlier tributes I had done for greats like Miles Davis and Frank Zappa but that was the print era. Music proliferation was absolutely constricted. Also getting latest vinyls of new artists or tapes was next to impossible as India hardly had any reputed music stores. I wonder if they still keep great or latest stuff! Thanks to online availability, releases and Youtube et al.


 

The moment I heard Abercrombie strum his chords that beautiful summer afternoon, I knew a refreshing era had dawned on musical landscape. In the album he paired with the finest keyboardist Jan Hammer (ex-Mahavishnu Orchestra) alongside modern drummer Jack DeJohnette (he played a sideman for Miles, Keith Jarret and Herbie Hancock and Michael Brecker among other jazz giants). The John Abercrombie combo went a long way in bringing a distinctive sound and direction not only to avant-garde jazz but to other existing and evolving/ fusion genres...
