Taliban strikes again - Pioneer
The recent judgement by the Supreme Court to settle the decades-old fight between States of Punjab and Haryana over the Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal is welcome.

Some nations need bitter pill - Ishaan Saxena, Pioneer
At the very onset of this piece, let me make it abundantly clear that I am no Right-wing chest-thumping patriot.
