    ...The Rohingya community is entitled to live in India because of a constitutional guarantee under Article 21, which protects the right to life, not just for Indian citizens but for foreigners. The Article clearly uses the term ‘Any Person’; therefore the right to life of the Rohingya is protected by the Constitution of India. The Rohingya are protected by the fundamental principle of non-refoulement or non-return, which says that refugees seeking asylum cannot be sent back to their country if they can be persecuted there. What is the central government’s basic argument on this? ...

    ...The World Bank’s senior director for education and Peru’s former education minister Jaime Saavedra spoke to Anam Ajmal about India’s re-entry into PISA, why the Indian education system needs to shift focus from quantity to quality and what we can learn from other countries: When will India participate again in PISA, which ranks countries based on learning levels of 15-year-old students? India last participated in PISA in 2009 but the minister for human resources and development has announced that India will participate again in 2021. This is a very good move because international testing is critical to understand where a country stands. ...

    ...In this case it is an intrusion into Bhutanese territory by the PLA and this lies at the tri-junction of Bhutan, China and India (Sikkim) adjacent to the dagger-shaped Chumbi valley. Indian troops in the area urged the Chinese construction team to desist and pull back – but in vain. In the intervening period, the standoff has become more intense. What is at stake for Bhutan? At stake is Bhutan’s status as an independent, sovereign state that is located between the two Asian giants and the sanctity of agreements between nations over matters of competing territorial claims. Furthermore, the confidence and trust that Bhutan has reposed in India to look after its external relations and defence is also on the anvil. ...

    ...This is a very unusual move and in the history of House of Saud this is just the second time it has happened. King Saud bin Abdulaziz was earlier replaced by his family but it was after he had a stint. I would not like to comment on internal reasons, which are probably connected to the family issue, but its implications are going to be far reaching because it breaches the system that House of Saud had. How this change is going to work out will only be known in the future as it depends on how the national guards react to the situation because they are under Prince Mutaib bin Abdullah. What are the reasons behind the Qatar blockade by Saudi Arabia? I would not like to connect this to Qatar’s links to Iran as has been speculated. ...

    ...It is important to understand that Pakistan and China are deliberately trying to move the focus away from their terror activities by creating an impression that there is violence in Kashmir. They are doing this slowly by trying to demonise our armed forces because then our army becomes a legitimate target of terrorism. This is a very sophisticated and well thought-out strategy, which includes creating a doubt regarding the legitimacy of our forces on an international level. ...
