Modi govt@4: NaMo’s foreign diplomacy - One bold stride at a time 26.5.2018 DNA: India
In his four years as Prime Minister, Narendra Modi’s conduct of external affairs was marked by drive and energy. He is the most peripatetic Prime Minister India has ever had.  As of May 2018, with Sochi in Russia, Modi has visited at least 54 countries on 36 foreign trips across six continents. Besides state visits to the P-5 of the United States, China, Russia, the UK and France, Modi has attended a UN General Assembly session and taken active part in a number of multilateral forums. The latter includes summits of SAARC, BRICS, East Asia, G-20, Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), ASEAN-India, CHOGM, India-European Union, World Economic Forum in Davos and the Nuclear Security Summit, apart from the UN Conference on Climate Change in Paris and the founding session of the International Solar Alliance, which was hosted in New Delhi in March.  By any reckoning, that is a lot of travel in 48 months, even if the Prime Minister is his own Foreign Minister, as Modi is. However, he has a competent External ...

Bloomberg warns of 'epidemic of dishonesty' 12.5.2018 General News
Americans are facing an "epidemic of dishonesty" in Washington that's more dangerous than terrorism or communism. That's according to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who warned in a commencement speech today at Texas' Rice University that "an endless barrage of lies" and a trend toward "alternate realities" in national politics pose a dire threat to US democracy. The 76-year-old billionaire, who flirted with an independent presidential run in 2016, did not call out any politicians by name. Although he derided Donald Trump as "a con" and a "dangerous demagogue" before his election, in an interview before the speech Bloomberg refused to comment specifically on the Republican president's troubled history with the truth.

It's bigger than any one party," he said in the interview. In the speech, Bloomberg evoked the .
