Sources said that contrary to inputs of a large Chinese troop presence at Galwan Valley, the build-up is...

On Thursday, India’s Ministry of External Affairs commented on the recent incidents along the Line of Actual Control – the nearly 2,200 mile unsettled border between China and India. Chinese and Indian troops clashed on...

    Five thousand five hundred metres above sea level, the Indian Air Force Mi4 medium-lift helicopter fought its way over the great ice sheets shrouding Ladakh, its single radial engine rendered asthmatic by altitudes its Soviet designers had never designed it to perform. Evading bursts of small-arms fire sent their way by People’s Liberation Army patrols perched along the Galwan river, the pilots slowly made their way to the Indian Army’s eastern-most outpost in Ladakh. There was, the pilots would report that morning of 21 October, 1962, no sign of life: Galwan Post, India’s most remote outpost in Ladakh, had been...
  • Critics Blast Trump For Taking HCQ As Preventative, But Let's Observe How It's Working Among Police Officers in India

    Townhall ^ | 05/21/2020 | Leah Barkoukis
    Since President Trump acknowledged he was taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure, he’s been criticized by the left for taking and championing an “unproven” drug that could have serious side effects, as some physicians point out. But other doctors point to the fact that it’s been in use for decades to treat malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, and is a “very, very safe drug.” Some on the frontlines of the coronavirus fight say using HCQ as a therapeutic in treating COVID-19 has been a game changer.  In India, its use as a prophylaxis appears--so far--to be working. More than half of...

    India long has been seen as a land of mystery, and with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic, the South Asian nation is keeping with that tradition. The number of coronavirus cases in India have been surprisingly low, given the country’s huge and highly dense population and its poverty levels. Experts are puzzled, but they think there are a number of factors that could be contributing to the low infection rates. “Unfortunately, we don’t have a solid answer,” Jeff Smith, South Asia research fellow at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal in an email. He said it’s possible the low...

    On the eve of the Nevada caucuses in February, Bernie Sanders and his supporters were feeling invincible. “I've got news for the Democratic establishment,” he declared on Twitter on Feb. 21, the day before he went on to a landslide win in the Nevada caucuses. “They can't stop us.” Since then, not only did the “establishment” stop Sanders - it stamped out the candidacies of a string of left-wing insurgents, leaving the progressive movement reeling and in a state of despair. Three highly-touted liberal House candidates - Jessica Cisneros in Texas, Robert Emmons in Illinois, and Morgan Harper in Ohio...

    As Assam prepares for mass culling to check the spread of African swine fever (ASF) that has killed almost 15,000 domesticated pigs, adjoining Arunachal Pradesh fears that the “foreign” disease may have “gone wild”. This is the first time that ASF has been reported in India. Assam claims the disease came from China, where almost 60% of pigs have died since 2018. Officials in Arunachal Pradesh’s East Siang district said six carcases of wild boars, including three piglets, were found in a community forest at Lidor Soyit upstream of Sille River. The spot is about 25 km from district headquarters...

Curious to know more, Read posted photographs of his discovery up on social media. "There were all sorts of stories flying around at first, the cubes really captured people's imaginations," he said. "What I learned is that they are Indian in origin and they show incantations for prayers which take effect when they are thrown in running water." Exactly how old the cubes are, however, continues to remain a mystery.

    “Though the change is small, it could be an indication that many believe Warren would not positively contribute to winning swing voters,” said Alex Donohue, analysts for U.S. Bookies. “It’s also worth noting that choosing other top candidates, such as [Senators] Kamala Harris or Amy Klobuchar, would not have this negative effect on Biden’s chances, and his odds would remain 13/10.”

According to numerous media reports Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) is likely to announce this week they will build an advanced chip manufacturing facility in Arizona. A manufacturing facility for advanced 5 nanometer chip manufacturing is a steep investment decision costing around $10 billion. This shift in...

Hence, looking to diversify its production, Apple is reportedly looking to move nearly 1/5th of its production from China to India. A report by ET reveals that Apple executives have been in touch with Indian government officials for the last few months and are now considering the possibility of moving a considerable chunk of their manufacturing operations to India through Apple’s contract manufacturers.
