• Bose Aircrash Was Faked. Was He Shot in Siberia? Was He the Baba in UP? The Mystery Must End

    To that extent, the declassified information that Jawaharlal Nehru spied on Subhas Chandra Bose and his family makes Nehru look bad. Some day secret files may reveal how the BJP government kept track of Rahul Gandhi’s secret meditations. The Bose files, however, raise issues that are more important than the petty games of politicians. Seventy years and many inquiry commissions later, the disappearance of India’s celebrated Netaji remains a mystery.

  • Modi's Pakistan policy is a giant mess: Why Masarat Alam must be celebrating

    Narendra Modis Kashmir policy is in tatters, characterized by U-turns and chronic indecisiveness in tackling the Hurriyat and its sponsors like America and Pakistan. CIA played a key role in Hurriyats birth in 1993 to browbeat India on the nuclear front. Pakistan is just a Washington proxy the cats paw, as it were.And Swami Agnivesh, to be honest, is only an item girl in a rapidly unfolding thriller called Kashmir. My sincere advice: Dont take your eyes off Masarat Alam whose arrest is being touted by the BJP as the biggest achievement after the 3: 67 humiliation in Delhi at AAPs hand.Masarat, to be sure, didnt go to jail kicking, screaming and crying.

      (With Pix)  By Kishor Dwivedi  New Delhi, Apr 19 (PTI) Blinding dust storms, damaged navigational aids and confusing instructions from the ATC were some of the challenges braved by Air India crew who took part in the recent mission to airlift thousands of people, including foreign nationals, out of strife-hit Yemen.   Recounting the edgy operation, an Air India pilot who was part of the efforts said that they managed to evacuate nearly 2,900 people with the help of three aircraft and eight pilots.   Dust storms were a major threat during the mission as they reduced visibility to as low as 100-ft, said the pilot who was speaking on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to talk to the media about the operation. Around the time we reached there for the rescue operations, the region experienced severe dust storms and it was not until we descended to a height of 100-ft that the runway was visible," he told PTI.
