The US was blaming China for the outbreak of COVID-19 and instigating its allies to exert pressure on China. But a twist is seen with the murder of Chinese origin 37 years old young scientist Liu Bing. “He was involved in research of COVID-19 and was on the verge of […]
The US President Donald Trump has tied himself and onlookers in knots by his alternating encomiums and diatribes against China over Covid-19 in the recent weeks. Only he can cut the Gordian knot and that he will be in a position to do only after November when the US presidential […]
The inept reactions of European governments to Covid-19 were dictated by former advisers to Donald Rumsfeld and George W. Bush. Contrary to public rhetoric, they make no medical claims.

From this point, the buck stops with the Modi government, as the country trudges along the Covid highway. The political move to tap into the residual spirit of Indian federalism in our highly polarised polity helped so far, as the central government could inject into its decisions a look of […]
“Australia is always there, making trouble. It is a bit like chewing gum stuck on the sole of China’s shoes. Sometimes you have to find a stone to rub it off.” Hu Xijin, Global Times editor, April 27, 2020. Disasters always invite blame – divine, natural, human – and the […]
The Covid-19 outbreak has so far killed more than 200,000 people and frightened billions more into panic.
