"The World Bank also offered on October 18 an extra-Treaty independent mediator for helping India and Pakistan choose from the aforementioned two modalities for dispute resolution," he said. The Minister ...

Methanol, viable fuel of future 5.12.2016 Deccan Herald - Opinion
As an alternative transportation fuel to gasoline, methanol has the potential to curb the kind of concentrated air pollution event witnessed recently in New Delhi while drawing upon indigenous resources for its production.
