yoyoyoy1) Unittled Lament.. by Arnav Anjaria

Between the Desert and the Sea lies my home.. Where the lament sets with the setting sun… Will go there soon…carrying a lament… but will it embrace the rays behind the sea? Or steer itself in the ever widening dark skies..,? where the rays reside…. And soon..Morning it shall be..and the lament shall still remain. Between the Desert and the Sea lies my home..   Arnav Anjaria is the Editor In Chief of The Arachneed. Occasionally contributes to the Arachneed Poetry.. … 

 

 

 

DSC021862) The effects of Nuclear Testing in East Turkestan – report of the Conference at the EP– Dennis Barbion

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. From 1964-1996, 46 confirmed nuclear detonations have taken place at Lop Nor in East Turkestan, and 22 underground tests were undertaken, including thermonuclear blasts, neutron bombs and an atomic bomb. Urumqi, Turpan, Qumul and Korla are cities in East Turkestan with Uyghur populations that reside …

6) Corruption-Democracy’s failure

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.

“Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity, it is an act of justice.”  – Nelson Mandela A majority of the world’s poorest countries today are in Africa. Of course some African countries like South Africa and Egypt are not quite as poor as others like Angola and Ethiopia. And though in recent years absolute poverty in Africa has shown some slight falls, African income levels have actually been dropping relative to the rest of the world. So poor Africa is getting relatively poorer on average, and 2011 sees drought in North East Africa again bringing the prospect of starvation to millions in the region affecting Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya – and in Somalia religious war has been worsening the famine situation there. The land is a major problem in Africa, with many African countries having confused land ownership so that much useful land is unused – and in some African countries where rainfall is unreliable …
