BHINDRANWALE AVENUE?

 

Cecil Victor-fnbworld By Cecil Victor

 

Indira Bhindranwale

 

Since the killing of the charismatic local Hizbul Mujideen commander Burhan Wani, Pakistan has been losing its fancied puppets at a rate of one a month because someone from within the terrorist groups—Lashkar-e-Toiba, Jaishe Muhammad, the Al Badr and the new Ansar Ghazwat-Ul-Hind led by Zakir Musa – is believed to be supplying information to security forces about the presence and location of inconvenient rivals within the terrorist camps. The insurgency situation is changing at a rapid rate and known terrorists are being quickly replaced by school dropouts and targets are shifting from street violence to strategic assets like the Banihal tunnel (the alternate route to  Jammu and Kashmir); police personnel – the generators of local intelligence — and military and paramilitary men on leave to demoralize the security forces...

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 (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. 


 

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 ...

BEAUTY AND THE BEASTS!


Sonalika Puri - fnbworld By Sonalika Puri


Manjulal Suloli-fnbworld

The beauty of nature has been endowed upon us in its myriad facets by the almighty or for some due to a freak accident. It mesmerizes every human being. That’s why whenever you see beautiful scenery or a greenery field, your mind escapes to the surreal world. Our eyes search beyond the mountains, farther into the jungle with beautiful trees or extraordinary depths of the seas and the rocks deep inside, colourful shapes and aroma of wild flowers, agricultural forms, gardens, panoramic view of beaches, fully covered fogscape, drifty clouds in the sky, various seasons, unique birds and animals and these are incredible and can’t be explained in words....
