Days of speculation over who would be Lok Sabha candidate for the YSR Congress from Vijayawada in the coming general election are finally over. Founder-chairman and chief mentor of Trimex group Koneru Rajendra Prasad, who was formally inducted into the party in Hyderabad on Sunday, has been given the ticket.
Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Mr. Koneru Prasad confirmed that YSRC president Jaganmohan Reddy had given him the nod.
A first-time politician, Mr. Konreu Prasad claimed that he was a native of Vijayawada and was well versed in the political climate of Krishna... Read More
The recently published report by Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) shows a rise in the figures as Indian hand printed textile products are a favorite of the conventional and new emerging markets.
In the second quarter of 2013, exports saw a rise of 6.01 percent (US$ 174.65 million) as compared to last year’s figures of US$ 183.61 million, during the same time period. Apart from hand printed textiles and scarves, embroidered textiles and crochet products went up from US$ 313.99 million to US$ 321.78 million (2.48% growth); shawls and soft goods grew by 31.1% from US$ 42.06...

So, North Korea has announced plans for further rocket launches and a nuclear test as ‘New phase of the anti-US struggle.’ The official communiqué could not make it any clearer;
We do not hide the fact that a variety of satellites and long-range rockets will be launched by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea one after another, and a nuclear test of a higher level which will be carried out by it in the upcoming all-out action will target against the US, the sworn enemy of the Korean people. Settling accounts with the US needs to be done with force, not with words. The world will... Read More
Last August, in China’s Hunan province, a woman by the name of Tang Hui was sent to a labour camp, sentenced to eighteen months‘re-education’ for “seriously disturbing the social order and exerting a negative impact on society.” Why, you may wonder, what was her crime? Simply that she had repeatedly petitioned officials, saying that the sentences passed against the men who had kidnapped, raped and forced her eleven-year-old daughter into prostitution should have been more severe.
Times have changed, even in China. In times past Tang Hui would simply have vanished into night and fog.... Read More
Those who take the view that Islam is not wholly incompatible with modernity and democracy tend to look to Malaysia and Indonesia. The latter is held to be a particularly good example, the most populous Islamic nation on earth, a country that has embraced freedom and plurality.
Alas things are not as they were; or rather an ugly truth is beginning to come out from behind a comforting illusion. Last month, on two separate occasions, a Muslim mob attacked local Protestants at the half-finished church at Bekaski, just outside Jakarta, the capital. Shouting death threats, they threw stones...

Last year I published a review here of Barbara Demick’s Nothing to Envy: Real Lives in North Korea (Better off as a Dog, 1 September). In part this touched on the disastrous famine that hit the hermit state in the 1990s, forcing desperate people into desperate exile. I made the following observation;
No, it wasn’t politics that forced them into exile: it was hunger, the famine which gripped this ideological museum in the 1990s and is thought to have been responsible for the deaths of as many as two million people, reduced in their final extremity to eating bark and weeds.
Now... Read More
Last week the Chinese National Bureau of Corruption Prevention issued a statement saying that 72.7 per cent of the population was satisfied with progress the government was making on tackling corruption, an endemic problem in the country. It caused a virtual tsunami. People went on line in their thousands, creative in their derision of a figure that doubtless sprung fully armed from the mind of some bureaucrat or other. One individual said “Public opinion poll? Did they conduct it inside the Politburo? Poor old public opinion – raped once again.”
I say ‘said’ but the comment was... Read More
