Is US media covering Obama’s India visit?

The Indian media is taking pains to describe at length- even with graphical details- about Air Force One looking no less than a Flying White House, official vehicle of President called ‘the Beast’, his dog soldiers, what is plan B for Agra and how sanitary work is in full progress in the cities that he will be visiting.

My report from Chicago published in The Times of India on January 27, 2015: Is US media covering Obama’s India visit?

Is China Collapsing?

Everyone is talking about China these days. It is the rising star and western media is devoting countless time and energy in analyzing how and why China is going to be the number one economy in the years to come.
Here is another point of view. Infact, the author Gordon Chang ( http://www.gordonchang.com/) had predicted in his book ‘The Coming Collapse of China’ in 2003 that China will not be able to sustain this tempo.
The author is a Chinese American lawyer who has lived and worked in China and Hong Kong for over 20 years, bringing first-hand experience and economic expertise to this book.

Media watch

1. I like Tarun Tejpal’s Tehelka. This group has been gripped in the controversy beacuse of the ‘sting operations’ but I think they are doing a wonderful job by exposing the criminal politicians of today. http://www.tehelka.com/

2. This exclusively online newspaper (requires subscription though) is published by public spirited team of youngsters. Th paper claims that it stands for the truth.
