Echoes of the Pink Tide - Vijay Prashad, Hindu
For U.S. foreign policy, its two Latin American pillars have been an isolation of Cuban socialism and support of the Colombian war against FARC. With their unravelling now, vested interests might try and introduce obstacles, but the developments, nevertheless, indicate a decisive shift in the tide of history.
New silk road - Nayan Chanda, Times of India
The Silk Road, a romantic name that evokes images of camel caravans laden with luxuries wending their way through picturesque mountains and steppes, is back in the news. In its latest avatar, the Silk Road is a Chinese strategic initiative comprising an infrastructure bank and a slew of road, high-speed rail, pipelines, ports and fibre-optic cables projects.
The last rivalry - Mint
The restoring of diplomatic relations between the US and Cuba marks the end of the last, and perhaps the most bitter, international conflict in the Western world. It can be argued that US President Barack Obama had little to lose in taking the step. The strong anti-communist expatriate Cuban community in Florida is not a part of the Democratic Party’s political support base.
48 hours after Peshawar, 26/11 butcher walks - Omer Farooq Khan, Times of India

Will tragedy jolt Pakistan's establishment into sense? - Business Standard
The attack by the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, or TTP, on an army-run school in the cantonment in the city of Peshawar in northwest Pakistan is one of the most compelling tragedies of recent years.

Together we can - Beena Sarwar, Indian Express
In an unprecedented move, students at schools across India observed a two-minute silence on December 17, in solidarity with the victims and survivors of the barbaric attack on an army-run school in Peshawar.

Explained: How Pak Taliban grew and grew - Indian Express
Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan is a loose and divided umbrella organisation that once represented roughly 30 groups of militants. The group was founded in 2007 by jihadi commander Baitullah Mehsud, and for years it and its allied groups, including al-Qaeda, have been based in the Pashtun tribal areas in northwestern Pakistan.

India seeks Nepal help to stem ISI-funded madrasas - Rakesh K Singh, Pioneer

Lesson for Pakistan - Pioneer
There cannot be a more terrible reminder to the present and past rulers of Pakistan than the massacre of 132 children in a Peshawar Army school on Tuesday, that their patronage to terror elements can result in unspeakable tragedies. These innocent children paid with their lives for the stupidities that Pakistan's political establishment has been indulging in over the years, by being soft on terror groups.

For the last decade or so, Pakistanis seemed to have lost the ability to be easily moved by news of tragedy and misfortune — so frequent have been the numbers of dead, injured and displaced.
