World War III

Middle East Situation – World at the Crossroads (Part II)

  [continued from Part I (dated: 5th October 2013)…] Both the US and Russia have significant vested interests in this region. Continuance of a favourable regime in Syria is of utmost importance to Russia. Russia maintains an extremely important military base in Syria at its port city of Tartus, in form of a naval installation which is their sole existing military facility outside the former Soviet Union. This is the very reason for Russia to steadfastly support the Assad regime. At the same time, other nations in the Middle East, particularly the Sunni nations, which are allies of the US, are ...

Middle East Situation – World at the Crossroads (Part I)

  Just when the situation in the Middle East was reaching boiling point and waiting to explode in the form of an expected US-led attack on Syria, a piece of smart and shrewd diplomacy by the Russian President, Vladimir Putin undid it all for the US.  Putin’s op-ed in the New York Times, while questioning the US plan of attacking Syria, without seeking UN approval, saw this as an attack not just on Syria but on the relevance, existence and future of UN itself, the organisation formed for achieving lasting world peace. Putin’s op-ed concluded with an astounding jolt to ... Read More »

Israeli attack on Syrian Naval Base of Latakia

Israel’s attack on the Syrian Naval base of Latakia on the 5th of July, 2013, supposedly launched from Turkish soil, in which Syria’s Yakhont P-800 missile depot was specifically targeted, has ever since been a topic of continuous discussion and debate. Yakhont are advanced anti-ship cruise missiles which were sold to Syria by Russia. Several blasts were heard after the reported Israeli strikes, at this critical Syrian naval base. The Russian television network, RT claimed the attack to be a joint design of Israel and Turkey. Reports have since emerged that this Israeli attack was launched in close coordination with ...

Digital Fortress

Just a couple of weeks back, I finished reading an extremely interesting book titled Digital Fortress;a techno-thriller novel written by the renowned American author Dan Brown who has authored the international bestseller novel, The Da Vinci Code. I read the Marathi translation of the book which was wonderfully done by Ashok Padhye. Its great to see Mehta Publishing House making these quality novels available to Marathi readers.  Digital Fortress transports the reader deep within one of the most powerful intelligence organizations on earth; an ultra-secret, multi-billion dollar agency whose existence is hardly known to its countrymen and the world. The ... Read More »

European Economy

Just last week, the Secretary General of Red Cross, Bekele Geleta, warned that the ever increasing unemployment and poverty in some of the European countries is fuelling unrest and that these issues may result in a sudden uprising of the masses if proper measures are not taken to resolve them. Wolfgang Schaeuble, Finance Minister of Germany, while talking about the same issues, warned of disintegration of Europe if unemployment was not brought under check. Just preceding these statements, Sweden, one of the most stable and economically sound countries of Europe, witnessed the eruption of massive riots in its capital city, ... Read More »

Post nuclear test by North Korea, neighbouring countries deploy forces on borders

(Courtesy: Dainik Pratyaksha) Japan and South Korea have started the build-up of their troops on their respective borders after North Korea conducted its third nuclear test, defying international pressure.

Although North Korea has not provided detailed information on these tests, South Korean military analysts and scientists are trying to ascertain the details. Even though the tests carried out by North Korea on Tuesday are ... Read More »

Present Situation in Pakistan

 ll Hari Om ll We have been seeing what has been recently happening on the Line of Control between India and Pakistan in Jammu & Kashmir. Pakistan violated the ceasefire between the two countries which was in-force since 2003. Pakistani Army regulars crossed the Line of Control and beheaded 2 Indian Army soldiers in the most inhumane and barbaric manner. Further to this the violation of ceasefire has continued from the Pakistani side in the form of unprovoked cross border firing. Even after all this Pakistan Government has very purposefully and vociferously taken up the public campaign of denial of ... Read More »

The World Today

ll Hari Om ll    UN Peace Envoy, Mr. Lakhdar Brahimi Yes indeed Syria paints a distressing picture on the canvas of the world. Is the Syrian conflict merely one that pitches the Syrian ruling powers against the Syrian commoners? Peculiarly, both sides have support and aid from outside the country. The allies of the Syrian government are obviously then opposed to those on the side of the rebels. And let us mind well that all those on one side are not necessarily each others’ well wishers. There is no moral basis to any stand and so no consistency either. ... Read More »

The World Today..

ll Hari Om ll   Early in the year 2006, Dr. Aniruddha Dhairyadhar Joshi (Aniruddhasinh) wrote a series of editorials titled‘The Third World War’ in the daily ‘Pratyaksha’.

Power Grid Failure & Its Social Implications

By now everyone of us must have come to know about the collapse of eastern, northeastern and northern electricity grids that knocked out power in 20 of 29 states and affected some 620 million Indians (around half of India’s population and 9% of the world’s population) causing havoc at train stations, airports, hospitals and on roads. For instance, Delhi Metro had to evacuate passengers from trains that stopped mid-journey. The Delhi Disaster Management Authority swung into action and helped in this evacuation. Millions in rural areas were unable to draw water from wells powered by electric pumps. In the coal ... Read More »

My blogpost of 17th July 2012 about the book that Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) gifted me, mentioned the article ‘Financial Terrorism’ written by Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) for the Marathi weekly, ‘Lokaprabha’ (issue dated 22nd August 2003). A comment from one of my friends includes a request to make the article available. So here is the English translation of the article:  In the Marathi folklore there is a popular rhyme (somewhat on the lines of a limerick), that urges the rain to come, on the promise of giving it money; the money proves to be virtual, and yet the rain poured heavily.  Even today, one comes across little ...
