SAARC Summit concludes


Encounter with a speeding car

Some reflections on life and death

After all, what harm is there in reflecting upon your own life every now and then? My perception is that we are so disproportionately consumed by petty day to day issues that the larger questions pertaining to life, and death, escape our attention to our own detriment. MORE

  • Will Kathmandu Summit see a different ballgame?

    Now that since Modi and Sharif have shaken hands several times, handshakes might not become the center of attraction. After all, SAARC Summit should not be the hostage to the never-ending India-Pakistan rivalry.
