Why Myanmar is a bother - Sapna Singh, Pioneer
President Ram Nath Kovind may have sought to deepen our civilisational links and hoped to build on a shared anti-colonial narrative with Myanmar during his visit to that country but semantics cannot paper over the fact that our neighbour has signed the Kyaukpyu deep sea project with China in November and that could pose a security threat to India.
Looking ahead without fear - Sandhya Jain, Pioneer

‘Even if there isn’t friendship between govt and media, there shouldn’t be animosity’ - Rajnath Singh, Indian Express

World on a boil - Claude Arpi, Pioneer
The planet is in turmoil. This did not start in 2018 but worsened during the past year and without being a bird of bad omen, it will continue in 2019. The 2018 award for chaos goes to…US President Donald Trump.
