What Modi and Obama can do 11.1.2015 Asian Age: Editorial
Prime Minister Narenda Modi with US President Barack Obama during the former’s US visit last year. President Barack Obama’s unprecedented second visit to India while in office will also mark the first time an American head of state has attended India’s Republic Day parade as chief guest. The visit can take the bilateral relationship to a higher level if India and the U.S. announce one specific and significant decision each in defence and technology the two most dynamic components of the relationship. Modi can announce that India will amend its nuclear liability law such that US companies can participate in the building of nuclear power plants in India. The US must take the remaining Indian companies off the Entity List (EL) of its Export Administration regulations. The companies were put on the EL as part of sanctions such as denial of technology or of machinery imposed since India’s 1974 nuclear tests. (In 2011, the US removed the nine remaining space and defence-related Indian companies from the list, ...

Nuclear-arms to be used to blast asteroids? 5.1.2015 Asian Age: Newsmaker
American researchers are looking into the possibility of using nuclear weapons to protect Earth from the threat of incoming asteroids. Scientists at Los Alamos, the US government’s atomic weapons research centre in New Mexico, say that the threat of an asteroid impact is far greater than had been realised and research was required to work out the best way to destroy or deflect them. “The goal is to study the effectiveness of using a nuclear explosive to alter the orbit, or destroy, a potentially harmful object,” said Robert Weaver at Los Alamos in an abstract submitted to the American Geophysical Union’s annual meeting in San Francisco. Weaver and his colleagues plan to create computer simulations of a nuclear device detonating above an asteroid to work out the ideal height to deflect it, the Times reported. It was believed that impacts by large asteroids were rare, but sensor networks set up to monitor illicit nuclear tests have recorded a large number of mysterious explosions, now known to be caused by ...

End of nuclear isolation 30.12.2014 Asian Age: Editorial
India’s isolation from the world trade in fuel for its nuclear power plants, imposed by the Nuclear Suppliers Group, will be over before this year is out with India set to complete the process of placing its civilian reactors under International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards in the next couple of days. Exports of nuclear fuel to India were stopped in 1974 by the US, Canada and others after New Delhi carried out its first nuclear test at Pokhran, codenamed “Smiling Buddha”, under Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. This also led to the creation of the Nuclear Suppliers Group, a cartel that exports nuclear fuel and sets the rules for export in the name of encouraging the peaceful use of nuclear energy. India was under tremendous pressure after this embargo by the NSG as she was short of uranium, the chief source of fuel for the nuclear reactors which operated below capacity. The situation thawed after India under Dr Manmohan Singh signed an agreement with the US in 2005 according to which India agreed ...
