  • 1965 war: How India almost lost to Pakistan

    Pakistan has long celebrated September 6 as Defence of Pakistan (Youm-e Difa) Day. This was the day when, it says, it defended itself against the Indian Army that had been launched on three axes towards Lahore. For this myth to take life, they gloss over Operation Gibraltar, the attack on Kashmir by thousands of irregulars on August 5, and Operation Grand Slam of September 1 where Pakistan's six armoured divisions came close to cutting the highway connecting Jammu to Poonch. A celebration implies an achievement, but if the truth be told, the Indian performance during the 1965 war was just a shade better than that of Pakistan.

  • By destroying 2,000-year-old Palmyra, Islamic State has demolished Syria's proud heritage

    Damascus, Syria: Palmyra, the ancient Syrian city that has fallen to the Islamic State jihadist group, has withstood the last 2,000 years with its immaculate temples and colonnaded streets.Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, the "pearl of the desert" is a well-preserved oasis 210 kilometres (130 miles) northeast of Damascus.Palmyra, which means City of Palms, is known in Syria as Tadmor, or City of Dates. Its name first appeared on a tablet in the 19th Century BC as a stopping point for caravans travelling on the Silk Road and between the Gulf and the Mediterranean.But it was during the Roman Empire, beginning in the 1st Century BC and lasting another 400 years, that Palmyra rose to prominence.Though surrounded by desert dunes, Palmyra developed into a luxurious metropolis thanks to the trade of spices, perfumes, silk and ivory from the east, and statues and glasswork from Phoenicia.In the year 129 AD, Roman emperor Hadrian declared Palmyra a "free city" within his empire.

  • RBI names SBI, ICICI two banks "too big to fail"

    Reserve Bank of India (RBI) named State Bank of India and ICICI Bank on Monday as "systemically important", lining the lenders up for tougher supervision to avoid collapses that could rattle the financial system and economy. The designation, effectively declaring the banks "too big to fail", was only applied by the central bank to the two lenders: India's largest state-owned bank and its largest private sector bank. State Bank of India (SBI) must now set aside additional Tier 1 common equity worth 0.6 percent of its risk-weighted assets.

  • Monsoon may start withdrawing from North-West India from Tuesday

    With the four-month-long monsoon entering the last month of September on Tuesday, the rain deficit for the country as a whole is likely to grow beyond the 12 per cent forecast by the India Met Department. Model analyses suggest that the monsoon may start to withdraw from extreme northwest (Rajasthan) on Tuesday to signal the start of the month-long process. The withdrawal takes place in an elaborate swipe of the air in the Northeast-East-Southeast-South-Southwest (clock-wise) direction when monsoonal rain evaporates from the surface covered. By the second week of September, it would cover North and North-West India and parts of adjoining Central India, says an assessment of the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology.
