Kolkata: Unmanned aerial vehicles or drones will soon fly over India's forests to monitor poaching, track wildlife and even count the population of tigers.

Gaza To Wagah: Trouble at our doorstep 27.12.2013 Mid Day: Columnists
From Syria to the border gates of Wagah, the fear of Balkanisation along the lines of religious radicalism and sectarianism poses a threat to the internal stability of countries of South Asia including India.

It is one of foremost challenges that the new Indian administration faces even as it grapples with the prospect of an inadequate monsoon. The growing ISIS reach in Iraq and the slow march towards legitimacy that the group aims to achieve is worrying for those that watch geopolitical movements in Central Asia: events that have indirect ramifications on countries with significant Muslim populations. Palestinian children carry traditional Ramadan lanterns in Gaza city, on June 28, during a demonstration against the seige on the Gaza strip, a day before the beginning of the Muslim holy month ...
