Commentary: U.S., India unlikely on same page - Xinhua | English.news.cn | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in India on Sunday for a three-day visit to consolidate Washington's strategic partnership with New Delhi.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I am delighted that the U.S. and India are trying to talk. One of the great problems for U.S. diplomacy in recent years has been the failure to recognize the end of mercantilism. We had divided the world into our allies, our enemies, our client states -- which had to do business with us -- and our enemies' client states. Countries that wanted to develop their own economies and their own military strength were seen as a threat rather than as a global partner to be respected. Hopefully, Mr. Obama is guiding us past that foolishness.

"The Nobel Committee regards it as an important point for a Hindu and a Muslim, an Indian and a Pakistani, to join in a common struggle for education and against extremism. "

Kenneth Weene's insight:

In a world that often seems consumed with hatred and extremism and in which pessimism abounds, the Nobel committee reminds us that there is hope. Congratulations to Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan and Kailash Satyarthi of India on their prize and on their contributions to our world.

Tens of Millions Gather at India’s Maha Kumbh Mela | TIME.com

Tens of Millions Gather at India’s Maha Kumbh Mela | TIME.com | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
In Allahabad, northern India, a megacity of millions is sprouting up at the confluence of the Yamuna and Ganges rivers.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

In this, the worlds largest, gathering of people, the participants find a sense of common humanity and faith which, for all the horrid lack of sanitation, seems to make them healthier afterwards. While not as central to the Hindu faith as the Haj is to Muslims, this is a great moment of religious renewal.

NEW DELHI: US, India reach compromise on troubled nuclear deal | Washington Watch | McClatchy DC | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
The United States and India reached a deal Sunday to change on liability laws that its leaders say will allow American companies to invest in nuclear energy development in India.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

While there are still issues between the two countries and while India is still a major polluter —try breathing in New Delhi — this is a great move forward. If you recall, the Obama's first state dinner was for the president of India. The President has worked long and hard to improve American-Indian relations. I wonder how the GOP will react to his success.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

To issue the necessary papers and to clear the bureaucratic hurdles to make this happen will not be easy, but to bring the poor of his country into the modern economy is a major goal. Good luck to Mr. Modi.
