The Conflicts that Just Don’t Go Away
While the Russia-Ukraine war and the patriotic histrionics of Zelensky, obduracy of Putin and bluffing by the West and incongruity of Biden hog the limelight of media and the paparazzi across the spectrum, the forever wars especially in the Middle East continue apace taking the toll in their stride.

Even some efforts have been made by warring parties to that effect.

नजदीकी के एक नए शिखर पर भारत-ब्रिटेन संबंध
ब्रिटिश प्रधानमंत्री बोरिस जॉनसन की भारत यात्रा काफी महत्वपूर्ण रही। यह दौरा उस समय हुआ, जब अंतरराष्ट्रीय परिदृश्य तेजी से बदल रहे हैं। रूस और यूक्रेन जंग की मैदान में आमने-सामने हैं, तो तालिबानी शासन में अफगानिस्तान की हालत खास्ता है। इनका भारतीय उप-महाद्वीप पर खासा असर पड़ रहा है। इस लिहाज से जॉनसन की यात्रा में हिंद-प्रशांत क्षेत्र (इंडो पैसिफिक) पर विशेष चर्चा उल्लेखनीय है। ब्रिटेन पिछले कुछ समय से हिंद-प्रशांत क्षेत्र और हिंद महासागर में एक बड़ी भूमिका अदा करने को इच्छुक दिखा है। पिछले साल उसने अपनी हिंद-प्रशांत रणनीति का खुलासा भी किया था। ब्रिटेन के इस रुख का इसलिए स्वागत करना चाहिए, क्यो
