The State of Play As a Covid-wounded global community steps gingerly into 2021, a year ‘trumpeting’ a change of guard in the US, the centenary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and an ongoing military stand-off between India and China, it is a good time as any to take stock of the state of play in the vast volatile waters of the Indo-Pacific.

मंगल आया पहुंच में : महिला का परिप्रेक्ष्य
प्रसिद्ध लेखक एचजी वेल्स का दि वॉर ऑफ दि वर्ल्डस लेख 1897 में ब्रिटेन की पीअर्सन पत्रिका और अमेरिका के कॉस्मोपोलिटन में धारावाहिक प्रकाशित हुआ था। यह मंगल ग्रह (मॉर्स) के आक्रांताओं और हमारे बीच एक असमान युद्ध की परिकल्पना पर एक उत्कृष्ट विज्ञान कथा थी। लेकिन आज स्थिति यह है कि मंगलग्रह से कोई भी धरती पर नहीं आ रहा है, उल्टे पृथ्वी के लोगों में ही मंगल पर जाने की एक होड़ शुरू हो रही है। ये लोग तो मंगल पर बस्तियां बनाने की सोच रहे हैं। आज के समय में एक ग्रह से दूसरे ग्रह की यात्रा कल्पना की उड़ान नहीं रह गई है। कहानी से आई वास्तविकता?
