India-China war will hit most nations: Chinese media - Economic Times
In the first official meeting between top Indian and Chinese officials since the Doklam stand-off became public, national security adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval met state councillor Yang Jiechi here on Thursday, offering the possibility of serious diplomatic efforts to de-escalate the confrontation.
Non-aligned movement 2.0 - Varun Gandhi, Economic Times
Rising powers like India usually have differing ways to increase their influence. Previously successful tactics, where we simply highlight our importance by virtue of our historicity and the size of our population, are limited in their appeal.

Exposing the Hurriyat - Pioneer
The Modi-led Union Government should be complimented for its crackdown on separatist leaders in Kashmir valley. While the direct or indirect involvement of Hurriyat members in fomenting unrest and violence in the region had been known for years, no regime had bothered to take them to task.

Of nakedness, Hitler's spirit and failed leaders - Anirban Ganguly, Pioneer
A number of afflicted half-intellectuals and failed leaders abound in India today. And Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi is foremost among them. His shallowness outshines all others.

Don't need a tank to win JNU battle - Makarand R Paranjape, Mail Today

The Vice President’s mien - Peter Ronald deSouza, Hindu
At this moment in India’s history, the lesser between the presidential and the vice presidential contests has become the more important one. It is not just a contest between two persons, or between two political coalitions, or even between two ideologies.
Simple yet hard solution to Dolam - Jai Kumar Verma, Pioneer
