वास्तविक नियंत्रण रेखा पर भारत-चीन टकराव का विश्लेषण
हाल ही में एक प्रतिष्ठित लेखक ने एक प्रमुख भारतीय अखबार में एक लेख में भारत-चीन सीमा विवाद के बारे में विस्तार से बात करते समय कुछ उचित और प्रासंगिक तथ्य सामने रखे हैं। हालांकि तथ्य उपयुक्त हो सकते हैं मगर पश्चिमी सेक्टर में वास्तविक नियंत्रण रेखा एलएसी पर स्थिति को खतरनाक बताने के लिए इन्हें तोड़-मरोड़कर पेश किया गया है। आलेख में कहा गया है कि चीन 1980 के दशक से ही बड़े विवादित क्षेत्र पर नियंत्रण कर चुका है क्योंकि भारत “एलएसी की अलग-अलग धारणा” की नीति पर काम करता है। लेकिन यह बात तथ्यों के आधार पर नहीं कही गई है। भारत पश्चिमी क्षेत्र में विभिन्न गश्ती बिंदुओं द्वारा चिह्नित की गई सीमा तक ही नि
Russia and Turkey Embroiled in Libya
For over a decade the biggest problem and misfortune of the Libyans has been the competition among the rival powers. This included the regional and non-regional interventionists who continue to support their favourite militias or quasi governments which further complicated the problems on the ground and peace and progress and the Libyan dream became a casualty. Libya was the third country after Tunisia and Egypt that bore the brunt of public discontent spurted through the Arab Spring of 2010 whose target was to remove the long-time dictators.
COVID-19 in Tajikistan: From Denial to Full-scale Crisis
Despite being surrounded by the countries with positive cases of coronavirus, the Tajik Government had consistently denied the existence of the virus until April 30 when 15 cases were reported. This announcement was made when the World Health Organization (WHO) decided to send a team to investigate the Dushanbe’s claims of coronavirus free status.

The Virtual Summit between India and Australia: how Significant?

ऑटोनॉमस शस्त्र प्रणालियों के प्रयोग पर नियंत्रण
तकनीकी परिभाषाओं की चिंता करने के बजाय जोर इस बात पर हो कि मानव अपनी मशीनों पर नियंत्रण कैसे बनाए रख सकता है
जैसे ही ‘किलर रोबॉट’ शब्द इस्तेमाल किया जाता है तो हमारे दिमाग में कैसी तस्वीरें कौंधने लगती हैं? पगलाए हुए टर्मिनेटर दौड़ रहे हैं; लोगों को बेरहमी से मारा जा रहा है; दुनिया खत्म हो रही है। लेकिन वास्तव में यह शब्द ऑटोनॉमस हथियार प्रणालियों (एडब्ल्यूएस) के लिए या उन हथियारों के लिए इस्तेमाल होता है, जिनमें कृत्रिम मेधा (एआई) यानी खुद सोचने की क्षमता होती है।
Ultra Virus | A Poem
The road to the exalted status of Xi-ri Xi-ri Xi-ri Xi-ri Xi-ri Xi In lanes behind Hotel Raffles In Singapore it still baffles Me how our dear friend Hu Noh Lai Knew I would be passing by. He softly whispered in my ear That I would surely want to hear From him all the latest details Of what Xi Jinping’s plan entails For Xina and for all of us, And so we took a local bus, And over drinks in a cafe In nutshell this he had to say: How he got the document To avoid any suspicion Route of document transmission
The Disarray in the Gulf Cooperation Council
The 5th of June 2020 marks a sad day in the annals of the 6-member GCC (Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, and Bahrain) founded in 1981. On 5th June 2017 the Crown Princes of Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. broke off relations with Qatar, diplomatic, consular, transport, and trade. Bahrain, Egypt, and a few other states, all beholden to Saudi Arabia, the aid-giver, readily joined in the blockade.
