  • Film-maker releases a dozen clips of controversial Modi speeches made just after Gujarat riots

    On Sunday Rakesh Sharma, director of Final Solution, the acclaimed documentary on the Gujarat riots of 2002, released a dozen clips online that were not part of the original two-and-a-half-hour version of the film. The film severely indicts Narendra Modi, the state's chief minister and the Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate. Many of these short films contain speeches that Modi delivered after the carnage, including during his Gaurav Yatra and campaigning for the state election several months after the 2002 anti-Muslim pogrom. Many of these speeches are no longer available online, Sharma said.

As ISRO's chairman A S Kiran Kumar put it, Thursday's flawless flight of the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) D6 showed that the rocket's first successful flight last year, using a homegrown cryogenic propulsion system, was no fluke. A heavy-lift vehicle has been the missing piece in ISRO's ambitions for years.

  • Rare images document the centuries-long history of Africans in India

    Almost a hundred years before Shivaji began to consolidate his empire, Malik Ambar of Bijapur led an army of 50,000 soldiers, many of whom were Marathi cavalry soldiers, against the Mughals. Malik Ambar, who was born in Ethiopia and brought as a slave to India around 1570, was one member of India’s once-thriving community of African immigrants. Like other Africans in India, he is now only rarely remembered. Dr Sylviane Diouf, director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, has been working on this exhibition, for some years now,  in association with Ken Robbins, who co-wrote a book on African elites in India.
