...That Can be Tackled With Common Sense…’

By Shobha Shukla *

So said Freddy Svane, Ambassador of Denmark in an interview given exclusively to Citizen News Service - CNS, during his recent visit to Lucknow. He rightly believes that, “Diabetes is a non- communicable disease that is self-inflicted. It is generally not something that we inherit, but something that we inflict on ourselves mostly by adopting an unhealthy life style. Dealing with it is all about applying our own common sense to change our mindset. Of course some will have to be assisted to do this, and so it calls for education.

Europe: Unemployment and Instability

By George Friedman
Founder and Chairman

The global financial crisis of 2008 has slowly yielded to a global unemployment crisis. This unemployment crisis will, fairly quickly, give way to a political crisis. The crisis involves all three of the major pillars of the global system -- Europe, China and the United States.

Republican Party faithfuls must be painfully aware of this as they take stock and move towards cementing a strategy to rebrand and revitalise the Grand Old Party (GOP) of the United States.

To be Upgraded to Functional Library and Museum

By A Correspondent

The contribution of overseas Indians and their engagement by the Indian government received a new fillip on February 28, 2013, with the Finance Minister of India P Chidambaram making a historic mention of the Gadar Movement Centenary during the general budget presentation in Parliament. Chidambaram announced that the government of India will convert the Gadar Memorial Hall in San Francisco into a full-fledged Museum and Library. It is rare for a foreign commitment to not only be earmarked in the country's budget, but more so for the Finance Minister to make a categorical mention during his speech to the entire Parliament in a live telecast to the nation.
