spokesperson said that the current impasse with India including the area of Donglong (called Doko La by India and Doklam by Bhutan) is a part of Chinese territory since “ancient times” adding that “if India wants to raise an issue with this part I would say that it doesn’t belong to Bhutan nor does it belong to India” The spokesperson even accused India of a “hidden agenda” saying that though “the

than Jupiter orbitting a star over thousand light years away from Earth Researchers had earlier identified that the light from the rare young star is regularly blocked by a large object They now predict that these eclipses are caused by the orbit of the yet undiscovered giant planet Using data from the Wide Angle Search for Planets (WASP) and Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope (KELT)

until we found a second almost identical eclipse in the KELT survey data that we knew we had something special” said Osborn They discovered that every two and a half years the light from the distant star PDS 110 is reduced to thirty per cent for about two to three weeks”What’s exciting is that during both eclipses we see the light from the star change rapidly and that suggests that there are rings in the eclipsing object but these rings are many times larger than the rings around Saturn” said Matthew Kenworthy astronomer at the Leiden Observatory in the Netherlands Also Read:‘Iceball’

eclipses”September’s eclipse will let us study the intricate structure around PDS 110 in detail for the first time and hopefully prove that what we are seeing is a giant exoplanet and its moons in the process of formation” said Osborn The researchers suggest that there are moons that could be forming in the habitable zone around PDS 110 pointing to the possibility that life could thrive in this

central Delhi (representational image) (PTI photo) Related News Our society has an ambivalent attitude towards the protection of architectural heritage On the one hand we are justifiably proud of the diverse and abundant evidence of our ancient civilisation on the other we often prevaricate unjustifiably when it comes to protecting it The most common rationalisation against conservation pits the imperatives of development against those of conservation but there are other more insidious prejudices rooted in majoritarian political or cultural ideologies that determine which buildings should be protected Of course one could argue that in an economically developing and culturally transforming society such contestations are to be expected but in the last year in particular the anti-conservation attitudes have hardened and government policies have become a veritable assault on architectural heritage Given our past commitment to conserving our historic monuments and the plural nature of what was conserved this was hardly expected In May 2015 the Central government summarily withdrew without consulting the project proponents the government of Delhi the application it had submitted to nominate Delhi to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Cities The state government had viewed the nomination as a strategy to boost tourism and strengthen the economic base of Delhi while simultaneously enhancing its image as the iconic capital of India The newly elected Central government however viewed it naively as anti-development Perhaps the withdrawal also addressed other unstated political agendas like demonstrating the primacy of its political powers to the provocative posturing of the state government while appeasing its electoral constituency by overtly opposing the historic significance of the two particular sites that were identified for nomination the Mughal city of Shahjahanabad and the colonial imperial city of New Delhi Share This Article Related Article Since the withdrawal of the nomination the Central government has reinforced its opposition to the significance of architectural heritage of the city by introducing three policy initiatives in the guise of promoting “development” First it instructed the Delhi Urban Art Commission (DUAC) to review the protection mechanism of the erstwhile imperial city the so-called Lutyens Bungalow Zone (LBZ) and propose fresh guidelines for its re-development This initiative catered to the sentiments of both the anti-colonial and the pro-development lobbies to justify what would otherwise be considered an act of vandalism anywhere else in the world The new DUAC guidelines have been cleverly formulated with a nod to legal procedure but following the ubiquitous bureaucratic traditions of opacity in decision-making These guidelines would effectively transform the architectural heritage of the LBZ that professional bodies of architects urban designers landscape architects and conservation architects had strongly petitioned the DUAC to protect Second the Central government has become adamant in wanting to demolish the Hall of Nations in Pragati Maidan to build a “world-class” convention centre The Hall of Nations is internationally recognised as an extraordinary example of modern Indian architecture It is among the buildings that the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) has proposed to the DUAC and the Heritage Conservation Committee (HCC) for recognition as the modern architectural heritage of Delhi All over the world there is a realisation that if significant examples of modern architecture are not protected then the modern segment of the historical narrative of architectural development would be lost to future generations In India INTACH proposed that the important examples of modern Indian architecture of Delhi should be protected particularly because Delhi has been a fertile site of post-Independence architectural development critically appreciated not only in India but internationally Sixty-two buildings including Akbar Bhavan Sri Ram Centre for Performing Arts Crafts Museum Bahai Temple Hall of Nations and Nehru Pavilion were on the proposed list Both the DUAC and the HCC who are answerable to the Central government are however dragging their feet perhaps as a disingenuous strategy to enable the development of the new convention centre at Pragati Maidan to become a fait accompli Third the Central government now proposes to bypass all existing processes and civil society actors who are involved in conserving the architectural heritage of Delhi by empowering the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) an institution unambiguously controlled by the Central government to take charge The DDA issued a public notice on March 30 2016 in which it announced that it has set up the Delhi Urban Heritage Foundation to “recommend for alteration modification or relax provision of existing regulations…” on matters related to Delhi’s architectural heritage thus making it the final arbiter on the subject Independently each policy initiative does not appear threatening but seen together a pattern emerges that is an assault on the architectural heritage of Delhi Perhaps in the context of the many other important issues confronting the city and civil society this assault does not grab the attention of the media or the stakeholders but the point I would like to highlight is it is symptomatic of the larger absence of public discourse in the formulation of public policy that has become worrisome And as far as architectural heritage is concerned it makes official our society’s incipient ambivalence towards its protection (This article first appeared in the print edition under

2016 12:08 am Clearly in this unequal relationship America has more options than Pakistan although it’s the weaker party that should ideally work with more options Top News Pakistani ex-ambassador Touqir Hussain writes in The Diplomat on March 16 about Pakistan-US relations: “Pakistan should shed its belief that the United States cannot walk away from the bilateral relationship; the United States should abandon the notion that Pakistan cannot survive without US help or that cutting off aid will beat Pakistan into submission The fact is that Pakistan would rather forgo aid than do something against its national interest” Hussain makes two assumptions: One the American interest in Pakistan is not permanent and will somehow shift away from it to punish it; and two Pakistan has a fixed national interest and will endure the hardship of America’s “walking away” rather than give up or modify that national interest In one case the party has a national interest subject to the flexibility of response; in the other it is unchanging There is of course the assumption that one party — the US — has the capacity to punish; and the other — Pakistan — has instead the capacity to endure pain Clearly in this unequal relationship America has more options than Pakistan although it’s the weaker party that should ideally work with more options Hussain’s statement therefore sounds like a threat of the weak unrealistically delivered to the strong The question is: If the pain is clearly to be suffered by Pakistan why doesn’t it develop flexibility vis-à-vis its national interest Hussain knows that the punishment for the sake of national interest will not be borne by Pakistan’s rulers but the long-suffering Pakistani population Interestingly Shahid Javed Burki a former caretaker finance minister of Pakistan and a former vice president at the World Bank had written only three days earlier in The Express Tribune: “National interest and public welfare are not always overlapping objectives The pursuit of one can do a tremendous amount of damage to the other This is the main lesson we should draw from the history of the exceptionally bloody contests witnessed in the first half of the 20th century We are seeing this again in the beginning decades of the present century as the rise of religious extremism continues to take a heavy human and economic toll in many parts of the world Promoting human welfare over national interest therefore must be the most important objective policymakers must pursue” Burki was leaning on a theory earlier propounded by economics Nobel laureate John Nash Some political scientists sworn to pragmatism think “national interest” is a bit of a fraud The only objective of the state should be survival: The strong will dictate; the weak will be flexible If you are living in a tribal society the strong will tend to be stupid and the weak cleverer All nations presume their state is sovereign; in other words strong enough to at least resist coercion But the truth is that some nations may be weak rather than strong What should be the national interest of weak states Contrary to what the nation thinks it should be the following: Not be harmed by the power projection of states it cannot oppose or resist; to seek alliances that may break the isolation enabling the enemy state to successfully harm it; to attain the ability to achieve internal reform in order to avoid foreign pressure of all sorts; to avoid international isolation to prevent other states from getting together at the UN to use international law to harm it It should be clear that under the UN system there’s no executive mechanism except the vote at the Security Council which simply requires a state to avoid isolation to avert punishment Earlier in March Pakistan’s ex-ambassador to Afghanistan Rustam Shah Mohmand recommended a policy that appeared to suit Pakistan’s interest but alas not Pakistan’s “national interest” He was talking about Pakistan’s denial of the land route for trade between Afghanistan and India Writing in The Express Tribune he stated: “[Pakistan’s] India-centric approach is fundamentally a negativist concept seeking to restrict India’s role in Afghanistan Despite Pakistan’s many overtures and deep contacts with Kabul the bilateral Afghan-India relations have continued to grow More importantly India is viewed by most Afghans as a friend and ally” Political scientists lose their cool over the theory of a fixed national interest States have interests that remain fluid forcing pragmatism on them for safeguarding the well-being of the common man But nations drunk on nationalism may impose a self-damaging permanent national interest and thus hurt the masses One man in South Asia who prophetically hated nationalism was Rabindranath Tagore who won his Nobel when Europe was steeped in nationalism fighting wars that killed millions of its people But one has to make a concession to reality and accept that the region in which we live cannot yet mutate from nation-states to market-states that trade with each ot-her rather than go to war periodically maintaining armies rather than looking after the

To see how walking might affect more restricted thinking the researchers also had the students complete a word association task with 15 three-word groups such as “cottage-Swiss-cake” for which the correct answer is “cheese” Participants repeated both tasks with different sets of words first while sitting and then while walking at a comfortable pace on a treadmill facing a blank wall in the same room With a different group of 48 students some sat for two different sets of the tests some walked during two sets of the test and some walked and then sat for the tests “This confirmed that the effect of walking during the second test set was not due to practice” Oppezzo said “Participants came up with fewer novel ideas when they sat for the second test set after walking during the first However they did perform better than the participants who sat for both sets of tests so there was a residual effect of walking on creativity when people sat down afterward “Walking before a meeting that requires innovation may still be nearly as useful as walking during the meeting” Oppezzo said For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express Appand?Sanjay Kaushal; senior lawyer Chetan Mittal; two amicus curiae.
