    By a strange coincidence my recent trip to Manipur coincided with the Subhas Chandra Bose’s snooping controversy. As I was looking at the pictures displayed on the walls of the museum, I came across a photograph of three out of the seven survivors of Netaji’s controversial plane crash. On reaching Delhi I found a book which can, perhaps, put a lid on the controversy regarding Netaji’s death and the role of the INA trials in the freedom struggle. Jawaharlal Nehru, who along with three renowned barristers — Tej Bahadur Sapru, Balubhai Desai and Kailash Nath Katju — defended the INA heroes in the court martial, wrote: “Behind the law there was something deeper and more vital, something that stirred the subconscious depths of the Indian mind.

  • Hit by beef ban, Indian butchers eye Jersey cows

    By Meenakshi Sharma MUMBAI (Reuters) - Battling a beef ban that has threatened their livelihoods, Muslim traders in India are seeking permission to slaughter foreign-origin Jersey cows they think will not be as sacred to the country's majority Hindus as locally bred cattle. Several states led by the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party of Prime Minister Narendra Modi have either brought new laws to ban beef or tightened curbs on killing cattle. India is the world's largest beef exporter and fifth biggest consumer, with the trade dominated by the minority Muslim community who have protested against the latest restrictions with little success.
