Other side of foreign origin
Considering that a foreign-born woman is currently ruling over the destinies of a billion-plus Indians, recent reports involving some other foreign-born personalities living in India might appear a trifle amusing. In the last fortnight, we have seen Iran-born Norwegian national Negar Khan unceremoniously turfed out of Mumbai, Pakistani actress Meera being threatened for allegedly kissing an actor on screen, and controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen, currently living in Kolkata, applying for Indian citizenship.

The culture of coalitions
The Congress has done it again shot itself in the foot for no rhyme or reason. All the painstaking efforts that it made in piecing together an alliance to fight the last general election have been squandered, and the party will have to start once again virtually from scratch if it wants to rebuilt trust among its allies and ensure a longish stint at the Centre.
Congress cannot antagonise its allies

The logic in having a nuclear missile
Pakistan has just test-fired another nuclear missile. No one doubts that country's nuclear capability. The only question is whether other countries aspiring to join the nuclear club will take the silence of the world as a quiet go-ahead
 for nuclear testing.
