CMs rightly fear misuse of anti-terror centre - BS Raghavan, Business Line
The seven Chief Ministers who have protested against the nature and scope of functions entrusted to the National Counter-Terrorism Centre (NCTC) are absolutely right in sounding the alarm. First of all, an organisation of such far-reaching impact should not come into being without its objectives and powers having been comprehensively discussed in a conference of the Chief Ministers. They have vital stakes in protecting their respective States and the country as a whole against terrorist attacks. Read Full Article››
Revamping India’s scientific ecosystem - Vijay Chandru, Hindu
A newspaper headline, “The Lament and the Lash”, made waves recently. Interestingly, it was a report on how Chairman Emeritus, Infosys Ltd., N.R. Narayana Murthy had lamented, while delivering the convocation address at the Indian Institute of Science, on July 15, 2015, that India has not produced a single invention that became a global household name. “… let us pause and ask what the contributions of Indian institutions of higher learning particularly IISc and IITs...

Amnesty International's crocodile tears - Anish Gupta & Aaleya Giri, Pioneer
The human rights group doesn’t have its branches in non-democratic or Islamic countries. Is it because they are concerned about their own safety? Is their concern for human rights merely superficial? The front page headline of The Hindu dated July 2, 2015, reads “With AFSPA, India has failed statute: Amnesty”.  While an article “Army can kill anyone on mere suspicion, says Amnesty”, by Mehboob Jeelani appears on page 10 the same day.

Enclave Exchange: India, Bangladesh to make history at midnight - Snigdhendu Bhattacharya, Hindustan Times
Standing on the threshold of history each one of the 4,000 odd residents of Mashaldanga enclave in Cooch Behar district of West Bengal is thrilled, excited and full of hope. In less than 12 hours – at the stroke of midnight on Friday – they are going to have a homeland after a 'stateless' existence of 68 years. They are among the 14,856 people living in 51 Bangladeshi enclaves inside Indian territory and all of whom will get a homeland.

Developed borders are also secure borders - Claude Arpi, Pioneer
While China has developed Tibet's infrastructure by leaps and bounds, India has been building up its border infrastructure at snail’s pace. The Modi Government has promised a change but this is easier said than done. The Indian electronic media has developed the art of inconsequence: They take an irrelevant issue and for days at the time, go on and on, repeating the same clichés, while ignoring the vital issues facing the nation. One of the subjects which has been grossly neglected is India’s borders, particularly with China in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh.

India cannot allow terrorism - Ashali Varma, Times of India
The 1993 Mumbai blasts killed and maimed many people. The bombs were indiscriminate: children, women and men — all innocent people either died or were disabled for life. The Memon family fled one week before the blasts. The whole horrible incident was planned and executed by Pakistan and the ISI with the help of Dawood Ibrahim and his cronies. Is this not considered sedition? Can we allow men born and bred in India to answer to Pakistan and bring death and destruction to India?

Tax Games - chasing money & power - Ajit Balakrishnan, Business Standard
If the action in the Indian taxation game were reported as passionately as our sports journalists report on IPL cricket, there would be a bonanza to be made in media ad revenues and subscriptions. Instead, bored reporters dutifully report meetings of state and central government officials to discuss arcane things like "GST" and "Service Tax". The reader of a newspaper or website barely glances at these news items, except when an enterprising minister or trade association manages to attach...

App-roaching India’s digital transformation - Rajat Kathuria & Mansi Kedia, Financial Express
The announcements of the Digital India and Skill India missions are the prime minister’s twin promises to the youth of India for a better future. Both recognise the role technology must play—the Skill India initiative, that targets to skill over 400 million youth by 2022, gives a computer-screen the pride of place in its logo. Technology is permeating our lives and changing how we live and work. An outstanding example of this is the mobile phone (in all its varied sophistication levels and incarnations).

Sense the Scorn - Malvika Singh, Telegraph
Since Parliament is not being allowed to function, is there some mechanism through which it can be adjourned to ensure that all members of parliament lose their salaries, subsidized meals and perks for betraying India with such deliberation? What we are witnessing is nothing short of shameful. It is hardly the legacy we would like to bequeath to our children. There are men and women in the Congress who would like to encourage dialogue and debate on the issues of corruption and malpractice...

My colleague APJ Abdul Kalam , a karmayogi - S Nambi Narayanan, Times of India
When I got an interview call from from Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) in Thiruvananthapuram for the job of a technical assistant (design) in September, 1966, I knew precious little about the organization. A bunch of young people handpicked by Vikram Sarabhai were working out of an old church in the sleepy fishing village of Thumba in Thiruvananthapuram, with the common goal of making rockets. To know more, I went to a lodge called Indira Bhavan where some of the scientists were put up.

Judiciary above suspicion in pronouncing justice, irrespective of blood colour of criminals - Prabhu Chawla, NewIndianExpress
Yakub Memon is not a religion. It’s a proper noun like other names, such as Kehar Singh who was hanged for the assassination of Indira Gandhi, and Renuka Shinde and sister Seema Gavit who are on death row for murdering five children. All of them belong to different faiths and communities. But they share one thing in common. All have committed the rarest of rare crimes and were sentenced to go to the gallows.
