घरेलू कालेधन से निपटना

कालेधन के दो प्रकार हैं घरेलू और अंतर्राष्ट्रीय। ये दोनों किसी स्तर पर एक दूसरे से जुड़े हैं परन्तु इनको नियंत्रण के प्रकार अलग अलग होते हैं। भारत में कालाधन बहुत ज्यादा है और इतनी बड़ी मात्रा में कालाधन देश की आर्थिक व्यवस्था को अस्थिर करने के साथ सरकार की नीतियों को भी अप्रभावी बनाता है।

घरेलू कालेधन से निपटने के लिए दो सुझावों पर विचार किया जा सकता है।

हिन्दी में शुरूआत

वर्ष 2009 में विवेकानन्द अन्तरराष्ट्रीय फाउण्डेशन की स्थापना के पश्चात् अब 2016 में मुझे यह सूचित करते हुए असीम आनन्द की अनुभूति हो रही है कि हम कुछ लेखों को वेब साइट के माध्यम से हिन्दी भाषा में भी उपलब्ध कराने का प्रयास कर रहे हैं।

विवेकानन्द अन्तरराष्ट्रीय फाउण्डेशन अभेदभावपूर्ण, अराजनैतिक एक स्वतन्त्र सकारात्मक वैचारिक चिन्तन मंच है जिसका मुख्य उद्देश्य कूटनीति, पड़ोसी देश, राष्ट्रीय सुरक्षा, सैनिक बल, राजकीय शासन और अर्थव्यवस्था जैसे विषयों पर विचार-विमर्श द्वारा जटिल समस्याओं का समाधान तथा नीति निर्धारण आदि पर चिन्तन एवं अध्ययन करना है।

Syria: The Russians are leaving, or are they?

Russian President Putin’s decision to pull out his military resources from Syria has been received with much skepticism and analysts are pulling out all the stops to examine the decision from every angle. Till late the Russian Air Force was using its might with 140 sorties against the defences of Palmyra in the last three days of the battle against the ISIS (Daesh). Although some fixed wing aircraft are reported to have been withdrawn there have been an equivalent number of attack helicopters which are reported to have been inducted.

Air Power: Ground Strike Capabilities must be Enhanced to Support Army Operations

Recently, in a rare public admission, Air Marshal B S Dhanoa, Vice Chief of Air Staff (VCAS), said while briefing the media recently on the eve of Exercise Iron Fist, a firepower demonstration of the Indian Air Force (IAF) that the “numbers are not adequate to execute a full air campaign in a two-front scenario.”

A Not-So Well Scripted Spy Story

If there is anything that the Pakistani spook service really lacks, it is good script-writers, which is surprising considering that Pakistan has a surfeit of writers who pen fairly plausible dramas. The manner in which the entire screen-play of the spy story involving an alleged Indian spy who had served in the Indian Navy and was arrested by Pakistani agencies in the border town of Chaman has played out so far, raises serious doubts and questions over the claims being made by the Pakistani authorities. Simply put, the story isn’t adding up.

China’s ‘Big Two’ Sessions Signal Policy Shift on Dalai Lama

A definitive shift was discernible in Beijing’s policy towards the Dalai Lama at the 4th plenary session of the 12th National People’s Congress (NPC), China’s version of a parliament, that concluded in Beijing on March 15, 2016. China additionally utilised the Chinese People’s Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and NPC sessions – popularly called the ‘Big Two’ -- to subtly continue its efforts to drive a wedge between the Dalai Lama and the various Tibetan Buddhist sects in the bid to undermine his influence and isolate him.

Daesh in Iraq: A Concern for Iran

Living with challenges has become a norm for the Islamic Republic of Iran. After the 1979 Islamic Revolution, it witnessed some mega problems, including eight-year war with Iraq, controversial nuclear programme, international sanctions, etc.

Return of Elected Government In J & K : The Approach Must be Right

At best of times J&K remains unpredictable in most spheres, especially in the security realm. However, a reasonably stable political dispensation responsible for governance can make a world of a difference.

Brussels Terror Attack: Implications for India and the Region

The city of Brussels was shaken by terrorist strikes in the morning of March 22, 2016. Twin blasts within seconds of each other hit Zaventem Airport at around 0750hrs local time (GMT) on March 22, 2016. These were triggered by suicide bombers. About an hour later, another terror attack struck Maelbeek subway station in the heart of the town.
