  • Gold prices in India back at discount on weak demand

    By Rajendra Jadhav MUMBAI (Reuters) - Gold prices in India swung to a discount to the global benchmark this week for the first time since mid July as a weak monsoon dampened demand in the world's second-biggest consumer. India's monsoon rains are likely to be below the prior forecast of 88 percent of the long-term average, which could make it the driest year since 2009 and worsen rural distress by cutting farm output. Two-thirds of gold demand in India comes from rural areas where jewellery is a traditional store of wealth.

  • ‘ Junk minority status, curb Muslim growth’

    WHILE the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, its affiliates, the Bharatiya Janata Party and the government met for the second day of the three- day coordination meet on Thursday, two prominent voices of the Hindutva brigade courted controversy by calling for curbs against the increasing population of the Muslim community, as revealed in a recent census report. Even as the Vishwa Hindu Parishad ( VHP) is being represented in the samanvaya meet, VHP working president Pravin Togadia went on to demand punitive action against Muslims who had more than two children while accusing them of waging a ‘ population jihad’. BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj, who has earlier courted controversies over his hardline Hindutva views in the past, said the community should be stripped of its minority status as it no longer deserved it due to its growing share in the country’s population pie.

    Washington, Sep 4 (IANS) Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Silicon Valley, a war of words has broken out between pro and anti Modi academics of Indian descent spread over major American universities. The first salvo was fired by over 100 professors "who engage South Asia in our research and teaching", asking US technology executives to be wary of supporting Modi's Digital India initiative when he visits Silicon Valley on Sep 27. "The allegation that Narendra Modi ought to be viewed with suspicion, if not disdain, by business leaders in Silicon Valley because of surveillance implications in the Digital India initiative seems a desperate ploy rather than any genuine concern for India," the counter petition said.
