  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Putin pumps iron to show Russians his healthy, wholesome side

    The Kremlin has released pictures of Russian President Vladimir Putin working out at the gym with Prime Minister Dmitrty Medvedev, images apparently aimed at shoring up Putin's rugged, masculine image as his popularity dips. Wearing a white T-shirt, track suit trousers and running shoes, Putin is shown on muscle-building apparatus in a publicity stunt that recalled previous shots of him shirtless riding a horse, flying a supersonic jet and hunting a tiger. Putin's approval ranking has been dented by a sluggish economy and free-falling rouble whose value has halved since last year due to a decline in the oil price and Western sanction over Moscow's role in the Ukraine crisis.
