Finding space for spirituality 15.10.2018 Financial Chronicle
How can we situate ou­rselves in the en­o­r­mously vast cosmic space? Can science instill in us a sense of awe and wond­er, which later takes us to rel­i­gion? Can religious explor­a­t­ion of space help us to clarify our scientific view on space? Alan Lightman, a distinguished American physicist, writer, social entrepreneur and  novelist, provides one re­sponse. He has served on the faculties of Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and is cu­r­rently professor of the practice of humanities at MIT. He is widely known as the author of the international be­stseller “Einstein’s Dreams” In an interview to PBS News Hour, he asserts: “I ha­ve always held a purely scientific view of the world. And by that, I mean that the unive­r­se is made of matter and no­thing more, that the universe is governed by a small numb­er of laws, and that everyth­i­ng in the world eventually di­sintegrates and passes away.” Then he recounts how on one summer night, he was out in the ocean in a small bo­at.

Spy’s Eye: Indo-US Convergence is a notch stronger 13.10.2018 Financial Chronicle
The two countries have an identity on the perception of threats to their security and nothing underlines this more strongly than their shared policy against the new global terror arising from a faith-based motivation Two major events of global importance hosted by Delhi in quick succession — the 2+2 dialogue between India and the US and India-Russia annual bilateral summit — have sealed a new and stronger equation between India and the US since the decisions of the first meet were not impeded by the biggest defence deal so far between India and Russia that was signed at the second event. India’s rise as a major world power post Cold War has been validated by these developments of great strategic significance for the country. India seems much better prepared to deal with its adversaries in particular with Pakistan and China who entered into a military compact obviously directed against India and take them on land, air and on the high seas around us. And what is more important, this is being achieved ...

FC Bureau Artistic flair meets wearablity as patchwork, colour blocks, neons, sequins and silhouettes power Spring Summer 2019 at the Lotus Make Up India Fashion Week Ashish N Soni challenges his own style each year and his season his collection paired minimalism with luxury and craftsmanship. The all Black collection focused on construction, design, technique and technology to make a statement. Nitin Bal Chauhan’s ‘The Gatekeeper’ was inspired by the decadence of a bygone era.

The silhouettes were Western and garments featured appliqué work, hand beading and black crystals. Péro was in keeping with the trend of flowy silhouettes, tiered tops ...
