Tarun Basu: A voice of sanity
It was the summer of 1996. The Congress government of Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao had lost the general election and, for the first time, there was an opportunity for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), headed by the moderate and well-liked Atal Behari Vajpayee, to take power. He lacked parliamentary majority but nevertheless made the bid to form a government and become Prime Minister — an ambition that he had long nurtured
 
 
Will Gore: Not much will change despite media stance against Trump
In a remarkable show of unity, nearly 350 American news organisations have published editorials highlighting the dangers of Donald Trump’s ceaseless attacks on the media. The Boston Globe, which made the initial call to action, sought to remind the president that “journalists are not the enemy”. The Post-Dispatch in St Louis argued that they are, indeed, “the truest of patriots”. The New York Times said Trump’s anti-press

There are “peace walls” topped with coiled barbed wire, kerbstones painted in rival colours and rival flags flying at what are called the “interfaces”. But this year, as the police noted,
   
Admiral Arun Prakash: Learning little from history
Independent India and I are both septuagenarians, but since I am a trifle older, I take the liberty of indulging in some reminiscences on the nation’s 71st birthday. My recollections are focused on Kashmir where I was born, in a town called Anantnag. I particularly remember the traumatic night of October 30, 1947 when India was 10 weeks old and I had just turned three. In my mother’s arms I, with two elder siblings, hid under
 
 
Bradley J. Fikes: Mother’s age could be the key to longevity
Women whose mothers lived to 90 years have a 25 per cent greater chance to also live that long, compared with those whose mothers didn’t, according to a new study led by University of California, San Diego researchers. Moreover, the women achieved this extreme longevity while staying healthy. They had no major chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, hip fracture or physical limitations. When both parents
