Australia and New Zealand have targeted playing a first Test match under lights in November 2015, Cricket Australia said on Monday.

Modi to push Manmohan policy on N-power 17.6.2014
When it comes to pushing for nuclear energy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to pick up the thread from where his predecessor Manmohan Singh left. Modi is expected to try to end the impasse over the proposed India-Japan civilian nuclear cooperation agreement during his visit to Tokyo early next month. The diplomats of New Delhi and Tokyo are currently trying to settle differences on certain key issues in order to take the negotiations to conclusion stage before Modi meets Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Modi is likely to travel to Tokyo from July 3 to 4. He is likely to meet Abe to review India-Japan bilateral relations, with particular focus on economic and commercial ties as well as cooperation in the field of civilian use of atomic energy. According to sources in New Delhi, certain outstanding issues bogged down the negotiations between the two countries on a framework agreement for civil nuclear cooperation. The "difficult issues" included Japan's insistence to add a clause providing for ...

How will the Narendra Modi government change India's nuclear policy? 11.6.2014 DNA: India
Nuclear posture is part of a country’s policy on what it does with nuclear weapons, if it is attacked. In simple words, it is the country’s stand and stance on its nuclear weapons, if it is attacked by other nuclear country.  India, as a country, too has a particular stance on its nuclear weapons since 1998, when it conducted nuclear tests. After the tests, India declared a nuclear no-first-use policy, and is in the process of developing a nuclear doctrine based on “credible minimum deterrence” as part of its nuclear weapons use policy. It is meant to maintain an arsenal which can help it in retaliating strongly if attacked by an enemy. In August 1999, the Indian government released a draft of the doctrine, which asserts that nuclear weapons are solely for deterrence and that India will pursue a policy of “retaliation only”. The document also maintains that India “will not be the first to initiate a nuclear first strike, but will respond with punitive retaliation should deterrence fail” and that ...

Australia opens tender for next phase in Malaysia Airlines search 4.6.2014 Zee News : World
Australia began the process of finding a private contractor on Wednesday to take over the hunt for a missing Malaysia Airlines plane after three months of military-led searches failed to find any trace of its wreckage.
Australia says missing Malaysia plane not where "pings" heard 30.5.2014 FirstPost: World
SYDNEY (Reuters) - The search for a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner suffered a further setback on Thursday after Australian officials said wreckage from the aircraft was not on the seabed in the area they had identified. Flight MH370, carrying 239 passengers and crew, disappeared from radar screens on March 8 shortly after taking off from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing. Investigators say what little evidence they have to work with, including the loss of communications, suggests the Boeing BA.N 777 was deliberately diverted thousands of kilometres from its scheduled route.

Passing the nuclear baton from Manmohan Singh to Narendra Modi 23.5.2014 DNA: Money
On Monday, May 26, India will have a new Prime Minister. The charismatic, larger-than-life Narendra (bhai) Modi will succeed the reticent and soft-spoken Dr Manmohan Singh. A grave and onerous responsibility will devolve on the new PM and along with the numerous issues whose stewardship will need the incumbent's personal attention, there is none more sensitive and opaque than the nuclear weapon capability of India. In short, the nuclear baton will pass from Singh to Modi. But when and how institutional acumen is transferred is part of the opacity that envelops this strategic capability that India acquired in May 1998 when Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the first BJP Prime Minister of India, took the bold decision that he did. Given the harsh US-led sanctions imposed on India after the May 1974 peaceful nuclear explosion (PNE) which was carried out with Indira Gandhi at the helm, the nuclear issue in India has perforce been a cloistered domain. The keepers of this secretive pursuit were a chosen few scientists and ...
