If there is anything to worry about for Boris, it's Farage creeping up 11.11.2019
As the UK is being bashed about with overwhelming rain and biblical floods, there are many who believe that it almost reflects the political devastation that pervades. Everyone is gearing up for elections, but the problem seems to be that there is no Opposition to the Conservative leader, Boris Johnson. According to surveys, he may have opened up a 17-point lead over his Labour rival, Jeremy Corbyn, who is falling far behind. Indeed, if there is anything to worry about, it could be that competition is only creeping up from the Far Right, the Brexit Party under the maverick leader, Nigel Farage. So much so that some might want to dissuade Mr Farage from opposing the Conservatives, as he may end up dividing the votes, leading to a win by Labour by default. Is the Brexit Party really so popular? Or is it just that it is the only party with a radically clear agenda and among those who want to leave the EU, it is immensely popular. But can Boris actually get the majority that he craves so much in Parliament? ...

The great Indian language trouble 10.11.2019
Every two weeks, a language dies with its last speaker in this world. India, undoubtably is a treasure trove of linguistic diversity, with nearly 450 living languages — 22 of them granted the status of a "Scheduled language" under the Constitution. Nevertheless, the country also faces the perennial threat of indigenous languages dying. As per the first-ever linguistic survey conducted, completed between 2010 and 2013, India has already lost over 200 indigenous languages in the last 50 years. The survey also rang alarm bells as it claimed that another 150 languages could vanish in the coming decades. The survey astonishingly discovered 780 languages across India, over six times the number in the Census. According to the United Nations there are approximately 6,500 languages spoken in the world today. But linguists and researchers fear that by the end of this century, over half of the 6,500 languages will be extinct. No wonder the United Nations has declared 2019 as the International Year ...
