To understand China’s conduct You have to from their names deduct The kind of persons they could be, It’s like solving a mystery. In social context these days one sees You use first names with so much ease, You could call Dev Dev and Bret Bret Even if you have not often met. If you say John you don’t feel strange, Ashok feels within human range. A man it could be, woman as well, With Chinese name you cannot tell. No names from another nation Create such sense of alienation, Of course, those who the language know Or have lived there may not think so.
Sino Indian Faceoff: An Inflection Point in Relations
The ongoing Sino-Indian faceoff at several points in Ladakh as well as at Naku La in Sikkim have brought the relationship to an inflexion point.

As usual China’s top political advisory body, the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), held its annual plenary session in Beijing along with the National People’s Congress (NPC).

Why did Nepal raise such a shrill response to a road that is inside India’s territory?
India-China Standoff and Stability in the Indo-Pacific
Recent violent clashes near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) between Indian and Chinese army units, resulting in large number of casualties in the Galwan region, has caused significant alarm in the wider Indo-Pacific region. While the nature of the clashes has added a new dimension to the growing fragility of the environment, the Chinese approach and aggressive actions can be seen as continuation of a trend that has been evident during the last few years.
Hydroxychloroquine: Pandemic, Parasites and Politics
In this six month long mercurial quest for the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infected patients, winners are far from declared. Among the various antiviral treatments tested or deployed to inhibit the viral growth, hydroxychloroquine has had an unparalleled head-turning effect across countries. The confidence of its propagators has remained undeterred despite the overriding focus on the adverse effects of this treatment on patients.
