Pragati April 2010: Stationed at the ends of the Earth

The cover feature of this month’s issue is a short update on India’s scientific research activities in the Antarctic and the Arctic: India has recently inaugurated new stations on both ends of the earth.

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

This month we cover several issues concerning domestic politics and internal security — out-governing the Naxalites; institutionalising the positive trend in Bihar; the need for a comprehensive new law governing political parties; managing ageing; and the negative fallout of reserving parliamentary seats for women. In the books section present an extended excerpt from a thoughtful new book on India’s north-eastern states.

In international affairs, we present a counter-argument to the editors’ views on India’s role in UN peacekeeping; examine use of nuclear-protected terrorism as a core strategy and present an Afghan perspective on India’s role in the war-ravaged country.
