Taiwan riddle for Trump, Xi - Manan Dwivedi, Pioneer
India with its own two-nation theory suffered partition and ungainly carnage. The mainland China and the outgrowth of its selfsame organic in the form of Taiwan too militate against the rationale of nation-state, ideally speaking.
Deadly weapon attack - Pioneer
The world can continue to quibble over who is responsible for the chemical weapon attack in Syria's Idlib Province, which claimed the lives of more than 70 people, largely innocent children. But the fact remains that even condemnation will seem hollow in bringing justice to the victims — the attack is equivalent to a war crime.
In the trap of history - Khaled Ahmed, Indian Express
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is looking for what has come to be called biyania (narrative) to defeat the influence of Islamist killers among the victimised masses.

Rex factor: A new America can engage Dragon - Manan Dwivedi, Pioneer

Hitting the right notes - Pioneer
Call him what you may — aggressive, shrewd campaigner, a man high on rhetoric, tough as nails — but there’s apparently no stopping US President Donald Trump from going ahead, in his words, in making ‘America Great Again'. This was so starkly evident in his maiden speech to the US Congress at Capitol Hill.
