RAHUL GANDHI
IS CAUGHT IN
GOVERNMENT’S
CROSS HAIR
fter being questioned
by the Enforcement
Directorate in the
National Herald case
last year and facing
heat in parliament for his al-
leged anti-India comments in
London, Congress leader is be-
ing hauled on coals for his com-
ments that “women are still be-
ing sexually assaulted” made
during his Kashmir leg of the
Bharat Jodo Yatra. Delhi Police
reached his Tughlaq Road resi-
dence on Sunday morning after
more than 40 days of the conclu-
sion of his long march. Police
had taken cognizance of posts
on the social media and recently
sent a list of questions asking
for details of the women who
spoke to him so that justice can
be given to him.
Whether it is his statement
made in London allegedly in-
sulting the country or during
the long march, the govern-
ment’s intention is to keep Ra-
hul Gandhi and his party on the
back foot. To make matters
worse for him the BJP has initi-
ated a move to get him suspend-
ed from parliament.
TOP TWEETS
A
amajwadi Party’s
national execu-
tive ended its two-
day meeting in
Kolkata on Sun-
day
. The choice of Kolkata as
venue away from Uttar
Pradesh where the party is
strong seems strange as West
Bengal is not where it be-
longs and it does not stand a
chance against Trinamool
Congress, the BJP and the
CPI-M. Also, SP and Trina-
mool Congress are working
to forge an alliance at the na-
tional level and share the in-
tent of keeping the Congress
out. They would certainly
not put up candidates oppo-
site each other in Bengal in
the parliamentary elections.
Any thought of seat-sharing
can be dismissed right away
as Chief Minister Mamata
Banerjee is a miser when it
comes to that.
Sowhatcouldhavebeenthe
reason for this move, and also
the decision to not join hands
with the Congress party? Two
notable developments in re-
cent months may have led to
this development. The more
significant of the two are the
comfortablerelationsbetween
MamataandtheGovernorCV
Ananda Bose. Compared with
theacerbicrelationstheChief
Minister had with the previ-
ous governor Jagdeep
Dhankhar there is a sea
change. Has Mamata made
peacewiththeCentreafterthe
Enforcement Directorate and
CBI inquiry against her neph-
ew Abhishek Banerjee?
During the recent Budget
session, Chief Minister Yogi
Adityanath attacked Akhile-
sh Yadav for allegedly own-
ing real estate in London and
Australia. If the UP CM could
spill the beans on the floor of
the House, the investigating
agencies must surely be hav-
ing a dossier on the SP chief.
Are TMC and SP
, therefore,
driven by fear?
IS FEAR THE KEY IN
SP-TMC PROXIMITY
SP and Trinamool
Congress are working to
forge an alliance at the
national level and share
the intent of keeping the
Congress out. They
would certainly not put up
candidates opposite
each other in Bengal in
parliamentary elections

UNSTABLE NEIGHBOURS:
A MAJOR CONCERN FOR EMERGING
REGIONAL POWER INDIA
urrently India is at the helm
of affairs in world fora with a
permanent seat in UNSC,
Presidencyof ShanghaiCoop-
erationOrganisation(SCO)as
well as G-20 and important
member of BRICS and Indo
Pacific Initiative of US. India
has emerged as ‘voice of glob-
al south’ and has been ac-
knowledgedasemergingpow-
er of the century by the US,
Russia, and their allies. In-
dia’s growing importance is
evidentastheUSseesIndiaas
an important partner for
peace in Indo Pacific and the
Russians have found their
longeststrategicallystanding
firmwiththemintheongoing
Ukraine conflict. India’s in-
ternational geopolitical stat-
ure has risen mainly due to
stable political environment
at home and wider acceptabil-
ity abroad. The world’s econo-
my has come under the grip
of the two-year-old COVID-19
pandemic and has been ad-
versely impacted by the
Ukraine conflict. But India’s
economy (fifth largest in
world) has been remarkably
resilient to the deteriorating
external environment, and
strongmacroeconomicfunda-
mentals have placed it in good
stead compared to other
emerging market economies.
The growing political stature
and economic potential has
taken India to a new high in
global affairs. India needs to
promote regional peace and
stability in order to have a
strong claim to be a major
worldplayerbutcurrentlythe
biggest challenge India faces
is its unstable neighbours.
CURRENT SITUATION
IN NEIGHBOURHOOD:
INDIA’S PERSPECTIVE
Currently barring Bhutan
and Bangladesh India’s
neighbourhood is facing po-
litical and economic turmoil,
with countries like Pakistan,
Sri Lanka and Nepal facing a
long road for recovery while
Myanmar and Afghanistan
virtually facing global isola-
tion. It is in India’s interest to
promote regional economic
integration, and need to step
up role of South Asian Asso-
ciation for Regional Coopera-
tion (SAARC) in regional co-
operation, dialogue, and re-
gional economic integration
and enhance effectiveness of
BIMSTEC.
Nepal: Since the abolition of
the monarchy
, the Himalayan
Republic has hardly ever seen
politicalstabilityandeconom-
ic growth & politicians have
been more interested in play-
ing India against China for
getting economic or infra-
structure aid in return. It was
with India’s help that Nepal
overcame its economic crisis
in past and now again the
country is on verge of debt
trap facing growing unem-
ployment and high inflation.
India may have to step up as-
sistance to make Nepal eco-
nomically self-sufficient and
counter Chinese influence.
Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka is fac-
ing political turmoil and un-
precedented financial crisis
since 2022 mainly attributed
to the poor financial policies
of all-powerful ruling Raja-
paksa family
. To emerge from
the present economic crisis
President Wickremesinghe is
seeking support of global fi-
nancial institutions like IMF.
India on its part has extended
four billion dollars aid and
has supported the IMF’s pro-
posal based on the Debt Secu-
rity Analysis.
Maldives: There is political
flux in the Maldives with the
rivalry between President
Ibrahim Solih and Speaker
MohammedNasheedtouching
a new high and the country’s
economy still recovering from
the brutal impact of the global
pandemic.Indiaonitsparthas
successfully dealt with “Keep
India Out” campaign and de-
veloped good bilateral rela-
tionswithMaldivesindefence
and economic fields.
Afghanistan: The resurgent
Taliban rule is yet to be rec-
ognized by global community
including their once-upon-a-
time mentor Pakistan and
Emirates. India has reopened
its operations in Kabul and
began the process of re-en-
gaging by sending humani-
tarian aid. While signalling a
long-term commitment to
development of Afghanistan,
India must draw redlines on
the Menace of Extremism
and Rights of Minorities and
Women.
Myanmar: Myanmar is un-
der military junta rule with
little hope of restoration of
democracy in near future.
Myanmar is reeling under
economic crisis with the pov-
erty-ridden public having no
say in the affairs of the state.
India has friendly relations
with Myanmar but its prox-
imity to China is a point of
concern. India has not sup-
ported the UN resolution con-
demning Myanmar but has
asked Myanmar to respect
human rights, fundamental
freedom, and rule of law.
Pakistan: Pakistan is in mid-
dle of worst pollical and eco-
nomic crisis as virtually all
parties have failed to deliver
on governance. Despite Chi-
neseassistance,thecountryis
rocked by food and fuel short-
ages, terror attacks and politi-
cal turmoil. Though the LOC
with India has seen lesser fir-
ing and infiltration in last one
year, yet there is no let out on
promotingSikhradicalisation
in Punjab and targeting inno-
cent Kashmiri Pandits in the
Valley
. The things have wors-
ened with a running battle
with the Taliban rulers of Af-
ghanistan over the Durand
Line dispute and accusing the
Taliban of supporting Paki-
stan terror group Tehreek-e-
Taliban.Itsrighttimeforboth
India & Pak to mutually initi-
ate confidence building meas-
ure to mitigate the hostile en-
vironment.
China: An assertive surge in
Chinese economic & diplo-
matic involvement in the re-
gion is a major point of con-
cern. The long-term conflict
between the two sides lies in
divergent perceptions of each
other, long lingering border
dispute, the growing power
gap where China is emerging
as global power challenging
the US and India has emerged
as regional power. And in geo-
political stand-off with Chi-
na, importance of maintain-
ing positive influence with
India’s neighbours cannot be
understated. The commonal-
ity of stand between India &
China on Russo- Ukraine war
& successful Modi - Xi Ping
summit meets should be fur-
ther explored & steps should
be taken to normalise bilat-
eral relations.

‘Diplomat’ reverentially calls PM as ‘Modi the immortal’
Beijing (PTI): Prime
MinisterNarendraModi
is reverentially called
‘ModiLaoxian’meaning
‘Modi the immortal’ by
Chinese netizens, a rare
respectful reference to
an international leader,
notwithstanding the bit-
ter India-China border
row, according to an ar-
ticlepublishedintheUS-
based strategic affairs
magazineTheDiplomat.
Inthearticle—‘Howis
India viewed in China?’,
MuChunshan,ajournal-
ist known for analysing
Chinese social media, es-
pecially Sina Weibo,
(akin to Twitter in Chi-
na), also said that most
Chinese feel that India
ledbyModicanmaintain
a balance among major
countries in the world.
Sina Weibo has over 582
million active users.
They point to both his
dress and physical ap-
pearance, seen as Laox-
ian-like, and some of his
policies, which are dif-
ferent from India’s pre-
vious ones, Mu said.
On India’s relations
with other major coun-
tries, he said, whether it
is Russia, the United
States, or Global South
countries, India can en-
joy friendly ties with all
of them, which is “very
admirable” to some
Chinese netizens.
“Sotheword‘Laoxian’
reflects the complex sen-
timentof Chinesepeople
towardModi,combining
curiosity
, astonishment,
and perhaps a dash of
cynicism,” Mu wrote.
“I have been doing in-
ternational media re-
ports for nearly 20 years
and it is rare for Chi-
nese netizens to give a
nickname to a foreign
leader. Modi’s nick-
name stands out above
all others. Clearly, he
has made an impres-
sion on Chinese public
opinion,” he said.
Besides hosting Chi-
nese President Xi Jin-
pingandformerPremier
Li Keqiang, since he
came to power in 2014,
Modi also held two rare
informal summits with
Xi, 69, in Wuhan and lat-
er in Mamallapuram
near Chennai, which
raised expectations of
improvementintherela-
tions between the two
Asian giants.

tions hit the bottom fol-

tary actions by the Chi-
nese military in eastern

An article in US-based magazine
The Diplomat says PM Modi is
popular among Chinese netizens
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has an
unusual nickname on the Chinese internet:
Modi Laoxian. Laoxian refers to an elderly
immortal with some weird abilities. The nickname
implies that Chinese netizens think Modi is different
even more amazing than other leaders.

WESTERN DISTURBANCE
New Delhi (ANI): Be-
fore 2014, India was as-
sociated with wrong at-
tributes, but today
Prime Minister Naren-
dra Modi has changed
the political culture of
the country
, BJP nation-
al president JP Nadda
said on Sunday
.
JP Nadda was ad-
dressing the Bharatiya
Janata Yuva Morcha
(BJYM) National Youth
Parliament in Tamil
Nadu, through video
conferencing. Address-
ing the event, Nadda
said, Modi Ji has
changed India's politi-
cal culture. I appeal to
the youth to go to every
nook and corner of the
country and tell every-
one about the change
PM Modi has brought
in the Indian politics.
Before 2014, our
country was one of the
most corrupt, policy
paralysis, backward,
walking on knees,
these were the attrib-
utes given to India. To-
day, our country has
embraced a great trans-
formation. Under PM
Modi, India is one of
the leading countries
giving directions to the
world, he added.
The BJP president
said that events like
these will increase
youth participation in
national matters.
I am feeling glad to
meet the youths of the
nation through video
conferencing. I congrat-
ulate Tejasvi Surya and
Bharatiya Janata Yuva
Morcha for this Nation-
al Youth Parliament.
Youth's involvement
will increase in matters
of the nation through
this Youth Parliament,
he said.
I am happy that this
great initiative starts
from here. Notably, Ta-
mil Nadu is a great land
of rich history, culture
and heritage; it's a land
of temples, Vedas and
traditions. It is the state
knownfortheoldestlan-
guage, Nadda added.
Nadda further em-
phasised the impor-
tance of channelizing
the youth energy
.
It is our responsibil-
ity to channelise the
youth energy, to give
due significance to the
voices of people and the
collective wisdom, to
become the part and
parcel of a mature de-
mocracy through re-
specting each and every
voice, he said.

NO PLACE IN
DEMOCRACY: BJP
PRESIDENT SLAMS
RAHUL GANDHI
New Delhi (PTI): BJP
president J P Nadda on
Sunday accused Rahul
Gandhi of overstepping
all bounds of democracy
and said he should be
sent packing “lock, stock
and barrel” in a demo-
cratic manner. “Those
who do not believe in
democracy have no place
in democracy,” Nadda
said after inaugurating
the ‘National Youth parlia-
ment’ of his party’s youth
wing Bharatiya Janata
Yuva Morcha, being held
in Chennai. The Congress
has become mentally
bankrupt, Nadda said
while alleging that Gandhi
“instigated” foreign
powers like the US and
European countries to in-
terfere in India’s internal
affairs by claiming that
they were “oblivious”
while democracy was
under threat in India.
New Delhi (PTI): No
Opposition front to take
on the BJP is possible
without the Congress
and if a coalition is
formed for the 2024 gen-
eral elections, the party
will have a central role
in it, senior Congress
leader Jairam Ramesh
has said.
In an interview with
PTI, Ramesh, however,
said it was too early to
talk about all this right
now as the Congress'
first priority was the up-
coming elections in Kar-
nataka and the string of
state polls this year.
Ramesh's remarks
come after both Mama-
ta Banerjee's Trina-
mool Congress (TMC) and Uttar Pradesh's
Akhilesh Yadav-led Sa-
majwadi Party (SP)
saying the two parties
would stay away from
both the Congress and
the BJP, and indicat-
ing possible talks with
other regional play-
ers ahead of the
2024 Lok Sabha
elections.
Asked whether the
TMC and SP's actions
could jolt Opposition
unity, Ramesh said,
The TMC, Samajwa-
di, people keep meet-
ing, the Third Front,
Fourth Front will con-
tinue to be formed,
but it is necessary to
have the Congress in
the Opposition.
No Oppn front is possible
without Congress: Ramesh
New Delhi (ANI): Del-
hi Health Minister Sau-
rabh Bhardwaj on
Sunday said that Union
Law minister Kiren Rij-
iju should apologise
over his remarks for
calling some of the re-
tiredjudgesanti-India.
Saurabh Bhardwaj
said, Now for him to
say that judges are anti-
India, it is very shame-
ful. Kiren Rijiju should
apologize to the whole
country that he is call-
ing the SC judges anti-
India. Kiren Rijiju
should not cross the
'Lakshman Rekha'. It is
unfortunate that de-
spite being a Law Min-
ister, he crossed this
'Lakshman Rekha'. To-
day the country is
proud of its Supreme
Court. Get a survey
done all over the coun-
try, today there is only
one institution in which
people have faith, and
that is the Supreme
Court, he said.
Earlier, Union Law
Rijiju made the remark
at a public event. A few
retired judges have now
become activists and
are part of the anti-In-
dia gang where they are
trying to turn the judi-
ciary against the gov-
ernment, he had said.

Junagadh (PTI): Agricultural production in India was
low not because our forefathers did not know farming
but for the lack of irrigation facilities and good-quality
seeds, Union Cooperation Minister Amit Shah said
Sunday. He added that many farmers thought that
production could be ramped up by applying chemical
fertilisers and harmed the soil quality in the country.
“Western countries didn’t know farming, whereas
our forefathers knew agriculture well. Agricultural
production was low here because we didn’t have irri-
gation facilities and good-quality seeds. However, we
concluded that by applying urea, we could increase
production. But in the process, we harmed the quality
of our soil,” Shah said. Bengaluru (PTI): Rahul

Nirmal Tiwari
Jaipur:Therearetimes
when comes forth an of-
ficer, who by his sheer
will and brilliant man-
agement and adminis-
trative skills, changes
the direction and condi-
tion of a department
aboutwhichthegeneral
perceptionof thepublic
was somewhat differ-
ent. While such officers
are too few and far be-
tween, as of today, one
shining example of
such an officer is Addi-
tional Chief Secretary
Dr Subodh Agarwal,
who not only changed
the image of the Mines
and Petroleum Depart-
mentbutalsobroughtit
to the forefront. The
contribution of mining
sector has played an im-
portant role in the pro-
gress of the region in
the last two and a half
years.
Skilled leadership,
team spirit, and solid
financial and adminis-
trativemanagementare
the key to success. Ad-
ditional Chief Secre-
tary of the Mines and
PetroleumDepartment,
Subodh Agarwal, has
‘reshuffled’ both de-
partments. The Mining
Department had been
hit hard with the blot of
illegal mining, but it
has now overhauled it-
self into the State gov-
ernment’s ‘Star Depart-
ment’.
Agarwal not only
stopped the illegal min-
ing in the region but
under his leadership, a
historic campaign was
started in the region,
which has been going
on for 240 days now. Af-
ter the Brij Chaurasi
case, Agarwal started a
campaign to end illegal
mining from the root,
which uprooted the
mining mafia. In these
240 days of the cam-
paign, about 4,700 cases
were registered, 1,160
FIRs were registered
and 723 people were ar-
rested, which is a re-
cord in itself.
The discovery of pre-
cious minerals in the
subsurface of the re-
gion and the prepara-
tion of their blocks
through their online
auction has strength-
ened the economy of
the region. A record 17
mineral blocks have
been auctioned during
Agarwal’s tenure. Dis-
trict-wise plots of mi-
nor minerals are also
preparedandauctioned
online.
By order of the Su-
preme Court, gravel
mining was closed in
the region for about 3
years. Agarwal con-
ducted a study of the
entire case and pre-
pared a road map for
strong advocacy in the
Supreme Court. This
hard work bore great
results as legal mining
of gravelwasallowedin
the region. Due to this,
thepublicgotrelief and
the government is also
getting revenue.
Agarwal brought an
amnesty scheme for the
recovery of old arrears.
This has resulted in a
revenue of more than
Rs 72 crore in just ten
months. He prepared a
plan for the protection
of geo-heritage sites.
Thediscoveryof miner-
als like potash and rare
earth and the rapid de-
velopment of their
blocks is also the result
of careful monitoring
andbettermanagement
by Dr Subodh Agarwal.
Agarwal’s contribu-
tion to pipeline projects
for cooking gas in Kota
and Jaipur, timely com-
pletion of refineries
and increasing petrole-
um revenue will also be
remembered forever.
On the whole, it can
be said that the trust
with which the Chief
Minister entrusted Dr
Subodh Agarwal with
theresponsibilityof the
Mines  Petroleum De-
partment, has been
proved correct and is a
testament to the confi-
dence of the CM, as
now, the Mines Depart-
ment is one of the lead-
ing departments in the
region in terms of rev-
enue generation.

Aditi Nagar
New Delhi: CM Ashok
Gehlot said the move of
Delhi police to initiate
an inquiry in wake of a
remark made in Bharat
Jodo Yatra was a clear
case of “vendetta, in-
timidation and harass-
ment” to create an at-
mosphere against the
former Congress chief.
The inquiry has been
initiated in the wake of
Gandhi’s remark that
“women are still being
sexuallyassaulted.”The
police have also sought
information about the
‘victims’ to take up their
plaints. “I condemn
this. Today’s incident is
beyond imagination.
The govt’s focus is on
Rahul Gandhi. Without
directions from the top,
the police cannot reach
here,” he said. He said
that lakhs of people
have met Rahul and
have given thousands
of plaints. “Will cases
be registered against
all’? The entire nation
is disturbed by today’s
incident,” he said.
“Gandhi is ready to
answer notice but cops
visiting his residence is
highly condemnable.
Democracy is being
crushed. Nation won’t
forgive them,” he said.

he magic and poet-
ry of the circus
have long stimu-
lated the imagina-
tions of artists.
They drew inspira-
tion from this fan-
tastical world for the fash-
ion world and brought beau-
ty live from the majestic
circus, featuring the
beauty of acrobats
from the all-fe-
male circus
m e m b e r s .
When people
say that life is
a circus, they
mean chaos.
Too much go-
ing on, and
things flying ev-
erywhere. The circus
has many moving
parts,buteverything
is completely con-
trolled and orderly
.
To use the metaphor
correctly
, life is a cir-
cus with many mov-
ing components
that all function
as they should. It
is full of adven-
ture, chaos and
laughter. Too
much going
on, and
things flying
everywhere,
but every-
thing is
completely steady and tidy
.
It allows one to be logical
and unreal at the same time.
Not only lessons but glam-
our is a major attraction of
the circus. We know that, in
the circus, all is possible:
there can be a man with two
heads or a character with a
greenface.Whenwesaythat
somefashiondesignershave
actually brought the carni-
val to town through the best
of imagination. The beauti-
ful amalgamation of fun
with glamour is called Cir-
cus fashion. Dressing up
like a clown and looking like
the chicest sad weirdos with
stunning designs and daz-
zling hair and makeup.
Ruffles, supersized di-
mensions, and be-
spoke pastel
hair are great-
ly appreciat-
ed. There are
plenty of
runway looks
to draw inspi-
ration from,
but non-perform-
ers may find them
too over the top, even
without the red nose. Dress-
ing up like beautiful acro-
bats with hot short dresses
and pretty cool makeup is
something out of this world.
You can also carry this look
to give a more stunning
look, wild animals like
horses and elephants and
cute birds are embroidered
on outfits with rhinestones,
along with cages. Even ani-
mal-inspired accessories
and makeup inspired by the
character of the white
clown, with the eyes of
models defined with black
liner can give a chic look to
the themed attire.

YOGA: A SECRET MANTRA TO
PREVENT FRAILTY
systematic re-
view of 33 rand-
omized con-
trolled trials
(RCTs) found
that yoga im-
proved gait
speed and lower extrem-
ity strength in inactive
older people. However,
yoga did not seem to of-
fer a benefit for frailty
markers over activi-
ties like exercise or tai
chi. The review is
published in the An-
nals of Internal Med-
icine.
IS FRAILTY A
COMMON
DISEASE OF THE
ELDERLY?
Older adults have an
increased burden of
chronic disease, disa-
bility
, and frailty
. Frail-
ty affects up to 50 per
cent of adults aged 80
years and older, and its
prevention and manage-
ment are high-priority
areas in public health
and clinical practice.
Yoga may be a preven-
tion and management
strategy and is already
used to improve balance
and mobility in older
adults.
ROLE OF YOGA IN
FRAILTY PREVENTION
Researchers from
Brigham and Women’s
Hospital and Harvard
Medical School reviewed
33 RCTs comprised of
2,384 participants aged 65
years or older to evaluate
the available trial evi-
dence on the effect of
yoga-basedinterventions
on frailty in older adults.
The authors analyzed
impacts on frailty
markers including
measures of gait
speed, handgrip
strength, balance,
lower extremity
strength and endur-
ance, and multi-compo-
nent physical perfor-
mance measures.
The authors found
that when compared to
education-only or inac-
tive control groups, there
was moderate evidence
that yoga improved gait
speed and lower body
strength and endurance.
The benefits of balance
and handgrip strength
were less certain. While
there was no clear advan-
tage for a particular style
of yoga, the authors sug-
gest clinicians may con-
sider recommending
Iyengar-based styles,
with a home practice,
that can be customized
for older adult popula-
tions. These findings add
to the growing literature
that yoga plays a role in
healthy ageing and
frailtyprevention.

Editor-In-Chief: Dr Jagdeesh Chandra Editor: Anita Hada Sangwan responsible for selection of news under the PRB Act Piyush Goyal @PiyushGoyal MSMEs are the backbone of our economy! Addressed entrepreneurs & manufacturers in Hubballi and urged our MSMEs to embrace digitisation as they continue to explore new markets. Jagat Prakash Nadda @JPNadda Virtually inaugurated The @BJYM Youth Parliament that is a testament to the BJP’s commitment to nurturing young leaders & promoting their participation in the democratic process. PM Modi’s vision for a New India, where every youth has the opportunity to thrive, is coming to life. SPIRITUAL SPEAK “One who neither rejoices nor grieves, neither likes nor dislikes, who has renounced both the good and the evil, and who is full of devotion, such a person is dear to Me.” —Bhagavad Gita IN-DEPTH RAHUL GANDHI IS CAUGHT IN GOVERNMENT’S CROSS HAIR fter being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate in the National Herald case last year and facing heat in parliament for his al- leged anti-India comments in London, Congress leader is be- ing hauled on coals for his com- ments that “women are still be- ing sexually assaulted” made during his Kashmir leg of the Bharat Jodo Yatra. Delhi Police reached his Tughlaq Road resi- dence on Sunday morning after more than 40 days of the conclu- sion of his long march. Police had taken cognizance of posts on the social media and recently sent a list of questions asking for details of the women who spoke to him so that justice can be given to him. Whether it is his statement made in London allegedly in- sulting the country or during the long march, the govern- ment’s intention is to keep Ra- hul Gandhi and his party on the back foot. To make matters worse for him the BJP has initi- ated a move to get him suspend- ed from parliament. TOP TWEETS A amajwadi Party’s national execu- tive ended its two- day meeting in Kolkata on Sun- day . The choice of Kolkata as venue away from Uttar Pradesh where the party is strong seems strange as West Bengal is not where it be- longs and it does not stand a chance against Trinamool Congress, the BJP and the CPI-M. Also, SP and Trina- mool Congress are working to forge an alliance at the na- tional level and share the in- tent of keeping the Congress out. They would certainly not put up candidates oppo- site each other in Bengal in the parliamentary elections. Any thought of seat-sharing can be dismissed right away as Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is a miser when it comes to that. Sowhatcouldhavebeenthe reason for this move, and also the decision to not join hands with the Congress party? Two notable developments in re- cent months may have led to this development. The more significant of the two are the comfortablerelationsbetween MamataandtheGovernorCV Ananda Bose. Compared with theacerbicrelationstheChief Minister had with the previ- ous governor Jagdeep Dhankhar there is a sea change. Has Mamata made peacewiththeCentreafterthe Enforcement Directorate and CBI inquiry against her neph- ew Abhishek Banerjee? During the recent Budget session, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath attacked Akhile- sh Yadav for allegedly own- ing real estate in London and Australia. If the UP CM could spill the beans on the floor of the House, the investigating agencies must surely be hav- ing a dossier on the SP chief. Are TMC and SP , therefore, driven by fear? IS FEAR THE KEY IN SP-TMC PROXIMITY SP and Trinamool Congress are working to forge an alliance at the national level and share the intent of keeping the Congress out. They would certainly not put up candidates opposite each other in Bengal in parliamentary elections S UNSTABLE NEIGHBOURS: A MAJOR CONCERN FOR EMERGING REGIONAL POWER INDIA urrently India is at the helm of affairs in world fora with a permanent seat in UNSC, Presidencyof ShanghaiCoop- erationOrganisation(SCO)as well as G-20 and important member of BRICS and Indo Pacific Initiative of US. India has emerged as ‘voice of glob- al south’ and has been ac- knowledgedasemergingpow- er of the century by the US, Russia, and their allies. In- dia’s growing importance is evidentastheUSseesIndiaas an important partner for peace in Indo Pacific and the Russians have found their longeststrategicallystanding firmwiththemintheongoing Ukraine conflict. India’s in- ternational geopolitical stat- ure has risen mainly due to stable political environment at home and wider acceptabil- ity abroad. The world’s econo- my has come under the grip of the two-year-old COVID-19 pandemic and has been ad- versely impacted by the Ukraine conflict. But India’s economy (fifth largest in world) has been remarkably resilient to the deteriorating external environment, and strongmacroeconomicfunda- mentals have placed it in good stead compared to other emerging market economies. The growing political stature and economic potential has taken India to a new high in global affairs. India needs to promote regional peace and stability in order to have a strong claim to be a major worldplayerbutcurrentlythe biggest challenge India faces is its unstable neighbours. CURRENT SITUATION IN NEIGHBOURHOOD: INDIA’S PERSPECTIVE Currently barring Bhutan and Bangladesh India’s neighbourhood is facing po- litical and economic turmoil, with countries like Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Nepal facing a long road for recovery while Myanmar and Afghanistan virtually facing global isola- tion. It is in India’s interest to promote regional economic integration, and need to step up role of South Asian Asso- ciation for Regional Coopera- tion (SAARC) in regional co- operation, dialogue, and re- gional economic integration and enhance effectiveness of BIMSTEC. Nepal: Since the abolition of the monarchy , the Himalayan Republic has hardly ever seen politicalstabilityandeconom- ic growth & politicians have been more interested in play- ing India against China for getting economic or infra- structure aid in return. It was with India’s help that Nepal overcame its economic crisis in past and now again the country is on verge of debt trap facing growing unem- ployment and high inflation. India may have to step up as- sistance to make Nepal eco- nomically self-sufficient and counter Chinese influence. Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka is fac- ing political turmoil and un- precedented financial crisis since 2022 mainly attributed to the poor financial policies of all-powerful ruling Raja- paksa family . To emerge from the present economic crisis President Wickremesinghe is seeking support of global fi- nancial institutions like IMF. India on its part has extended four billion dollars aid and has supported the IMF’s pro- posal based on the Debt Secu- rity Analysis. Maldives: There is political flux in the Maldives with the rivalry between President Ibrahim Solih and Speaker MohammedNasheedtouching a new high and the country’s economy still recovering from the brutal impact of the global pandemic.Indiaonitsparthas successfully dealt with “Keep India Out” campaign and de- veloped good bilateral rela- tionswithMaldivesindefence and economic fields. Afghanistan: The resurgent Taliban rule is yet to be rec- ognized by global community including their once-upon-a- time mentor Pakistan and Emirates. India has reopened its operations in Kabul and began the process of re-en- gaging by sending humani- tarian aid. While signalling a long-term commitment to development of Afghanistan, India must draw redlines on the Menace of Extremism and Rights of Minorities and Women. Myanmar: Myanmar is un- der military junta rule with little hope of restoration of democracy in near future. Myanmar is reeling under economic crisis with the pov- erty-ridden public having no say in the affairs of the state. India has friendly relations with Myanmar but its prox- imity to China is a point of concern. India has not sup- ported the UN resolution con- demning Myanmar but has asked Myanmar to respect human rights, fundamental freedom, and rule of law. Pakistan: Pakistan is in mid- dle of worst pollical and eco- nomic crisis as virtually all parties have failed to deliver on governance. Despite Chi- neseassistance,thecountryis rocked by food and fuel short- ages, terror attacks and politi- cal turmoil. Though the LOC with India has seen lesser fir- ing and infiltration in last one year, yet there is no let out on promotingSikhradicalisation in Punjab and targeting inno- cent Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley . The things have wors- ened with a running battle with the Taliban rulers of Af- ghanistan over the Durand Line dispute and accusing the Taliban of supporting Paki- stan terror group Tehreek-e- Taliban.Itsrighttimeforboth India & Pak to mutually initi- ate confidence building meas- ure to mitigate the hostile en- vironment. China: An assertive surge in Chinese economic & diplo- matic involvement in the re- gion is a major point of con- cern. The long-term conflict between the two sides lies in divergent perceptions of each other, long lingering border dispute, the growing power gap where China is emerging as global power challenging the US and India has emerged as regional power. And in geo- political stand-off with Chi- na, importance of maintain- ing positive influence with India’s neighbours cannot be understated. The commonal- ity of stand between India & China on Russo- Ukraine war & successful Modi - Xi Ping summit meets should be fur- ther explored & steps should be taken to normalise bilat- eral relations. THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL C The world’s economy has come under the grip of the two-year-old COVID-19 pandemic and has been adversely impacted by the Ukraine conflict. But India’s economy has been remarkably resilient to deteriorating external environment, and strong macroeconomic fundamentals have placed it in good stead COL RAJESH BHUKAR The author is a Post Graduate in International Studies, Alumni of Defense Services Staff College, Wellington and College of Combat, Mhow

Sina Weibo has over 582 million active users. They point to both his dress and physical ap- pearance, seen as Laox- ian-like, and some of his policies, which are dif- ferent from India’s pre- vious ones, Mu said. On India’s relations with other major coun- tries, he said, whether it is Russia, the United States, or Global South countries, India can en- joy friendly ties with all of them, which is “very admirable” to some Chinese netizens. “Sotheword‘Laoxian’ reflects the complex sen- timentof Chinesepeople towardModi,combining curiosity , astonishment, and perhaps a dash of cynicism,” Mu wrote. “I have been doing in- ternational media re- ports for nearly 20 years and it is rare for Chi- nese netizens to give a nickname to a foreign leader. Modi’s nick- name stands out above all others. Clearly, he has made an impres- sion on Chinese public opinion,” he said. Besides hosting Chi- nese President Xi Jin- pingandformerPremier Li Keqiang, since he came to power in 2014, Modi also held two rare informal summits with Xi, 69, in Wuhan and lat- er in Mamallapuram near Chennai, which raised expectations of improvementintherela- tions between the two Asian giants.

JPC/004/2022-24 Nirmal Tiwari Jaipur:Therearetimes when comes forth an of- ficer, who by his sheer will and brilliant man- agement and adminis- trative skills, changes the direction and condi- tion of a department aboutwhichthegeneral perceptionof thepublic was somewhat differ- ent. While such officers are too few and far be- tween, as of today, one shining example of such an officer is Addi- tional Chief Secretary Dr Subodh Agarwal, who not only changed the image of the Mines and Petroleum Depart- mentbutalsobroughtit to the forefront. The contribution of mining sector has played an im- portant role in the pro- gress of the region in the last two and a half years. Skilled leadership, team spirit, and solid financial and adminis- trativemanagementare the key to success. Ad- ditional Chief Secre- tary of the Mines and PetroleumDepartment, Subodh Agarwal, has ‘reshuffled’ both de- partments. The Mining Department had been hit hard with the blot of illegal mining, but it has now overhauled it- self into the State gov- ernment’s ‘Star Depart- ment’. Agarwal not only stopped the illegal min- ing in the region but under his leadership, a historic campaign was started in the region, which has been going on for 240 days now. Af- ter the Brij Chaurasi case, Agarwal started a campaign to end illegal mining from the root, which uprooted the mining mafia. In these 240 days of the cam- paign, about 4,700 cases were registered, 1,160 FIRs were registered and 723 people were ar- rested, which is a re- cord in itself. The discovery of pre- cious minerals in the subsurface of the re- gion and the prepara- tion of their blocks through their online auction has strength- ened the economy of the region. A record 17 mineral blocks have been auctioned during Agarwal’s tenure. Dis- trict-wise plots of mi- nor minerals are also preparedandauctioned online. By order of the Su- preme Court, gravel mining was closed in the region for about 3 years. Agarwal con- ducted a study of the entire case and pre- pared a road map for strong advocacy in the Supreme Court. This hard work bore great results as legal mining of gravelwasallowedin the region. Due to this, thepublicgotrelief and the government is also getting revenue. Agarwal brought an amnesty scheme for the recovery of old arrears. This has resulted in a revenue of more than Rs 72 crore in just ten months. He prepared a plan for the protection of geo-heritage sites. Thediscoveryof miner- als like potash and rare earth and the rapid de- velopment of their blocks is also the result of careful monitoring andbettermanagement by Dr Subodh Agarwal. Agarwal’s contribu- tion to pipeline projects for cooking gas in Kota and Jaipur, timely com- pletion of refineries and increasing petrole- um revenue will also be remembered forever. On the whole, it can be said that the trust with which the Chief Minister entrusted Dr Subodh Agarwal with theresponsibilityof the Mines Petroleum De- partment, has been proved correct and is a testament to the confi- dence of the CM, as now, the Mines Depart- ment is one of the lead- ing departments in the region in terms of rev- enue generation.

The inquiry has been initiated in the wake of Gandhi’s remark that “women are still being sexuallyassaulted.”The police have also sought information about the ‘victims’ to take up their plaints. “I condemn this. Today’s incident is beyond imagination. The govt’s focus is on Rahul Gandhi. Without directions from the top, the police cannot reach here,” he said. He said that lakhs of people have met Rahul and have given thousands of plaints. “Will cases be registered against all’? The entire nation is disturbed by today’s incident,” he said. “Gandhi is ready to answer notice but cops visiting his residence is highly condemnable. Democracy is being crushed. Nation won’t forgive them,” he said.

When people say that life is a circus, they mean chaos. Too much go- ing on, and things flying ev- erywhere. The circus has many moving parts,buteverything is completely con- trolled and orderly . To use the metaphor correctly , life is a cir- cus with many mov- ing components that all function as they should. It is full of adven- ture, chaos and laughter. Too much going on, and things flying everywhere, but every- thing is completely steady and tidy . It allows one to be logical and unreal at the same time. Not only lessons but glam- our is a major attraction of the circus. We know that, in the circus, all is possible: there can be a man with two heads or a character with a greenface.Whenwesaythat somefashiondesignershave actually brought the carni- val to town through the best of imagination. The beauti- ful amalgamation of fun with glamour is called Cir- cus fashion. Dressing up like a clown and looking like the chicest sad weirdos with stunning designs and daz- zling hair and makeup. Ruffles, supersized di- mensions, and be- spoke pastel hair are great- ly appreciat- ed. There are plenty of runway looks to draw inspi- ration from, but non-perform- ers may find them too over the top, even without the red nose. Dress- ing up like beautiful acro- bats with hot short dresses and pretty cool makeup is something out of this world. You can also carry this look to give a more stunning look, wild animals like horses and elephants and cute birds are embroidered on outfits with rhinestones, along with cages. Even ani- mal-inspired accessories and makeup inspired by the character of the white clown, with the eyes of models defined with black liner can give a chic look to the themed attire.

YOGA: A SECRET MANTRA TO PREVENT FRAILTY systematic re- view of 33 rand- omized con- trolled trials (RCTs) found that yoga im- proved gait speed and lower extrem- ity strength in inactive older people. However, yoga did not seem to of- fer a benefit for frailty markers over activi- ties like exercise or tai chi. The review is published in the An- nals of Internal Med- icine. IS FRAILTY A COMMON DISEASE OF THE ELDERLY? Older adults have an increased burden of chronic disease, disa- bility , and frailty . Frail- ty affects up to 50 per cent of adults aged 80 years and older, and its prevention and manage- ment are high-priority areas in public health and clinical practice. Yoga may be a preven- tion and management strategy and is already used to improve balance and mobility in older adults. ROLE OF YOGA IN FRAILTY PREVENTION Researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School reviewed 33 RCTs comprised of 2,384 participants aged 65 years or older to evaluate the available trial evi- dence on the effect of yoga-basedinterventions on frailty in older adults. The authors analyzed impacts on frailty markers including measures of gait speed, handgrip strength, balance, lower extremity strength and endur- ance, and multi-compo- nent physical perfor- mance measures. The authors found that when compared to education-only or inac- tive control groups, there was moderate evidence that yoga improved gait speed and lower body strength and endurance. The benefits of balance and handgrip strength were less certain. While there was no clear advan- tage for a particular style of yoga, the authors sug- gest clinicians may con- sider recommending Iyengar-based styles, with a home practice, that can be customized for older adult popula- tions. These findings add to the growing literature that yoga plays a role in healthy ageing and frailtyprevention.
