Has Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte declared an end to the long-standing U.S.-Philippines alliance by seeking closer relations with China and Russia?

It seems that “America’s Pacific Century” intended to maintain its influence throughout the Asia-Pacific region and isolate China has hit a major roadblock.

The relationship between the Philippines and the United States has been quite interesting with Duterte making headlines across the world in 2016 criticizing the foreign policy of the Obama administration.

In an industry where misogynistic dialogues by all top-rung actors are lapped up by fans, actor Prithviraj’s apology has come as a welcome relief

“Because you are a woman, merely a woman” – It was with this ‘punchline’ that District Collector Joseph Alex, the character played by superstar Mammootty in the 1995 Malayalam film The King, topped off a long-winded, insulting and moralistic lecture to his feisty young subordinate. At that point, the hero’s theme music kicks in, leading to thunderous applause from the audience in the theatre. The film was the highest grosser at the box office that year.

Nathuram Godse’s execution order and knowledge of the whereabouts of three of the accused are some of the documents missing from the national archives.

Upon examining the files – contained in 25 CDs in the National Archives of India (NAI) – on Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination and the trial of the accused, the Central Information Commission (CIC) has concluded that “there is no comprehensive record of Gandhi files compiled at one place on assassination of Gandhi”. With the records also revealing that three of the accused had absconded and were never traced, Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyula has directed the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and Ministry of Home Affairs to get involved in consolidating all the records on the case.

BENGALURU: A bizarre combination of loneliness, space shortage and the sheer gorgeousness of exotic avians has resulted in a new epidemic bird depression.

Israel Cracks the Whip Too

Prime Minister Netanyahu and Justice Minister Shaked call the Left-liberal bleeding hearts’ bluff

It’s not just India, but Israel too that has been facing the dubious agenda of certain non-governmental organisations (NGOs). In response, the country’s Parliament, Knesset, recently adopted a highly contentious Bill which makes its mandatory for NGOs that get a majority of their funding from foreign sources, to disclose the same in all their official communications. Left-leaning advocacy groups and individuals have expectedly lashed out at the new law, claiming that it was the Israeli Government’s method to muzzle the NGOs who differed with the regime. This is amusing, since all that the Bill has sought is transparency — the favourite buzz word of the NGOs, who demand it all the time.
