SAARC is dragging India behind, will it ever live to its ideal or it will remain a flogging horse?

Uravshi Sinha had posted

It is best to keep Pakistan out of SAARC , interested only in Chinese doles , so be it. Why create obstacles in development programmes of other SAARC countries. Pak brags

SAARC is a platform where India needs to take the lead bringing South Asian nations together towards collaboration and mutual development. Increased economic engagement and cultural congruence would tone down the political tensions as time passes by. An integrated and cohesive South Asia bodes well for its people and an active SAARC is the way to go.

It is inconceivable to think that we are governed by political parties who are voted into power by such a small number of voters. I believe that it is the responsibility

Does anyone have any idea if this is wholly Uber or is it Uber+Google?

People in Aleppo are being massacred, are we sure the fight is against ISIS?

This could ever have been possible without a bloodless outcome. There was no possible solution to involve communication with Assad. Airdrops into besieged areas, where rebels horde and the civilians starve would be an awful way to extend hostilities.

Stories, such as moral stories have the power to shape mankind’s destiny!

To certain extend yes they do! But ti feel the question is who defines morals? The authors for these books? Or our society/ upbringing?

Buddhist monks are mercilessly killing Muslims in Myanmar, is Buddhism a religion of peace?

No mainstream religion advocates any type of hatred, animosity, or violence towards any group of people. The same way you feel when you hear the words buddhist and terrorist together is the same way the billions of mainstream and moderate Muslims feel when they hear the word terrorist. I understand that the original teachings of Buddha in no way support violence, but you must also understand that the teachings of the prophet Muhammed also denounce violence and extremism. So when you denounce the term Buddhist terrorism you should also denounce the term Muslim terrorism because both have nothing to do with the core tenets of their faiths

All you need to do is to alter one assumption. If you substantially reduce the speed and accept multigenerational travel times. Then all you need is the ability to self sustain a large community in space for long periods of it. That we could do with some semblance of current technology; though certainly at a huge expense. The biggest issue would be protecting the travellers from radiation. If there is any insurmountable problem with interstellar travel, it will be that problem.

Harish Narang BITSian for life and beyond.

Peace during the Cold War was maintained only by a balance of power - neither superpower had an advantage large enough to be confident of victory. This eventually became the doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction: both sides had sufficient weaponry to totally annihilate one another, and potentially the whole world. However, there is no longer a balance of power. With the proliferation of nuclear weapons, some rogue states may develop the ability to strike at enemies who have no nuclear weapons of their own. It is not clear that the major nuclear powers would then strike back at the aggressor. This is further complicated by the fact that most of the emerging nuclear threats would not be from legitimate governments but from dictators and terrorist groups. Would it ever be acceptable to kill thousands of civilians for the actions of extremists?

Intelligence is the ability to notice the difference that makes a difference. In most professional situations one needs background knowledge (education) to know what is already known and what is important. Unfortunately, too much of education (especially Universities) still look for very good memorisation useful, but not an indicator of intelligence, which is needed for originality.

I agree that this mid-life crisis is occurring more and more often in younger adults. My anxiety and depression stems not from being unable to decide what I want, but from the fact that there is nothing to choose from. I had plans for my future, but any reevaluations of those plans means that I have to settle for less. I feel like I'm still waiting to begin my adult life but it's not going to happen any time soon working full-time minimum wage jobs.

Govt. has hiked the Minimum Support Price but shouldn't it first implement the existing prices

India is still a developing country where farmers require requisite govt support to become competitive. So total ending of MSP would make their crops less competitive in market and hence led to their exploitation. With less money they will suffer in terms of health, education, better crop technology etc. Due to exploitation many farmers will leave agriculture and migrate to nearby cities or towns in search of job. Agriculture still holds a large no of people so a very portion of population will be unemployed which other sectors cannot hold. Such migration will increase the burden on cities thereby decreasing its development rate and surging crime rates.
