China-Pakistan Strategic Nexus: Implications for India
The growing China-Pakistan nexus raises the threat to India. Their strategic and territorial interests have been cemented by the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). With the flow of Chinese military power into Pakistan, China veritably straddles India, with its armed forces present on our northern, eastern and western borders.

Jordan’s Royal Challenge
Palace Intrigues are an integral part of the Royalty and history is replete with it. One hundered years old Hashemite Kingdom is no exception. Discontentment, embedded ambitions, unsolicited external interests, and interference add to the spice especially when due to extraneous conditions a country’s economy and employment situation as well as its security place a question mark on the governance structures. Normally in monarchies King can do no wrong. But in the modern-day Middle East public has at least heard of, if not tasted the fruits of the Arab Spring.
