  Corruption is such a stale issue, and yet it has not dealt with at all. People have been talking about how corrupt India is since times immemorial, and ever since over bridges started collapsing during the Commonwealth Games, the issue has taken centre stage.

Perhaps the government had pushed the nation over the limit and they were going to pay a very heavy price for it. However, I think it was during this phase, that debates, discussions, talks by esteemed people and God knows what not on the issue became so popular that it gave the common man (like me) a chance … Read entire article »

Press release: The effects of Nuclear Testing in East Turkestan – report of the Conference at the EP

On Wednesday 29th February 2012, an important issue was discussed at the European Parliament in Brussels, a topic that is so unknown and that is kept silent by the Chinese authorities already for decades.  The People’s Republic of China began to develop its nuclear weapons programme in 1951 following a secret agreement with Moscow which exchanged Soviet assistance for Tibetan uranium. Although this coorperation ended in the 1960s, China made rapid progress and detonated its first nucelar bomb, codenamed ‘596’ in October 1964 in East Turkestan.

Urumqi, Turpan, Qumul and Korla are cities in East Turkestan with Uyghur populations that reside … Read entire article »
