he was going the right way He broke free of the old fossilised template of journalism and set new standards His arrogance and attitude sucked as did his irreverence to facts but a whole generation of new journalists definitely has shunned docility and reverence for power inspired by him Even the older ones are trying to bring in some aggression to their job not without much success though But they might be missing the point Aggression was only a sideshow to his core ability His strength lay in understanding his audience clearly and connecting with them well Many news outfits are still way behind in this respect His next career venture media reports say could be an independent media house with a bouquet of digital and other offerings With aclarity of the target audience chances are he won’t fail Digital media which has slipped into the old lethargic mindset again maybe in for a big shock Newshour didn’t change the world or didn’t tell all that the nation wanted to know but it certainly made popular points in a forceful way No one wants those regressive religious forces going berserk in the country; no one wants women to be harassed or VIPs riding roughshod over ordinary masses No one gave them a better hiding than Arnab His lack of politeness feigned as it maybe found appreciation rather than disapproval Yes his flaws outnumber his virtues But the virtues need to be discussed too Newshour was a success because of these The man succeeding Arnab will have big shoes to fill New Delhi: India’s armed forces must fight the next war with indigenous solutions army chief General Bipin Rawat said on Monday as he made a strong pitch for developing the domestic defence industry The army chief also called for greater synergy between industry and the armed forces to develop quality equipment and military platforms File image of General Bipin Rawat PTI "Indian armed forces must fight the next war with indigenous solutions" he said while addressing a seminar organised jointly by the army and the Indian Technical Textile Association Union Textile Minister Smriti Irani told the gathering that the National Textile Corporation will have a specialised facility to develop clothes and other gear for the armed forces "There must be effective engagement between the armed forces and the industry" the army chief added He also referred to combat dress and boots being supplied to the US Army by the Indian private sector and said there was a lot of scope for cooperation between the army and the domestic textile industry for developing dress material and other gear for the forces "There is huge budget with the Army that has been spent on textiles It is high time that we look for indigenous solutions" he said His comments come two days after the defence ministry broadly finalised a much-awaited policy under which select private firms will be roped in to build military platforms like submarines and fighter jets in India in partnership with foreign entities India is a leading importer of arms and military platforms globally and the current government has been maintaining that indigenisation of defence manufacturing is a priority area Rawat said discussions at the seminar must not be confined to files and official papers and practical steps must be taken to boost cooperation between the armed forces and the textile industry Irani said there must be cohesive alignment of cooperation between the textile industry and the armed forces” it added.” he said. "We have promised India support in its efforts to become a member of NSG, that alone is not enough.I want the Indian economy to be driven by smart and sustainable cities robust farm sector vibrant manufacturing and dynamic service sector And its engines to run on world class network of rail roads airports and digital connectivity" Modi said Modisaid both sides have agreed to build on the Swiss Vocational and Educational Training system suited to India’s needs Referring to energy security Modi said reliance on renewable energy rather than on fossil fuels would be India’s "guiding motto" "We see a perfect connect between our development needs and Swiss strengths I therefore invite the Swiss companies to avail of this great opportunity to be a key partner in India’s economic growth Ultimately the economic prosperity of 125 billion plus would also benefit the entire world" Modi said Modi also talked about Switzerland being a popular destination for shooting of Indian films noting the strong ties between the people of the two countries are an important "base and benchmark" in bilateral ties In this regard he also mentioned about India launching the e-Tourist Visa facility earlier this year for Swiss nationals "Thanks to the Indian film industry we are very familiar with the enchanting beauty of the Swiss landscapes But we are also keen to welcome larger number of Swiss visitors to India" he said Modi also referred to Indian tennis stars Sania Mirza and Leander Paes winning a number of Grand Slams while pairing up with Swiss player Martina Hingis "There are many success stories of our relationship One that has been making waves in the Grand Slams of the tennis world is the partnership of famous Swiss player Martina Hingis with Sania Mirza and Leander Paes of India "I am confident that our common commitments and values people to people links and a strong and growing economic partnership will take our relations to new heights" said Modi Paes and Hingis had won the French Open mixed doubles last week The pair had won the Australian Open Wimbledon and US Open in 2015 Pokhara: India on Wednesday said it firmly believes that a peaceful and secure neighbourhood will yield "rich dividends" for Saarc countries even as it asserted that time has come to take stock of past decisions of the grouping on which there has been no movement Representational image AFP In his statement during the 42nd Saarc Standing Committee Meeting in Pokhara Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar said India is pursuing with renewed vigour its "neighbourhood first" policy which also translates into priority for Saarc initiatives "We believe that there is scope for further rationalisation of Saarc processes Perhaps the time has come for us to also take stock of past decisions and initiatives given that there are so many instances of such decisions not seeing any movement for many years" Jaishankar who arrived here on Monday said "We are firmly of the belief that a peaceful secure and prosperous neighbourhood will yield rich dividends for all of us" he said Noting that the grouping has some useful agreements in the area of security including the Convention on Terrorism Narcotic Drugs and on Human Trafficking Jaishankar said a major challenge that the region faces is that of circulation of fake currency notes "This is closely interlinked with the problems of money-laundering drug trafficking and human trafficking as well as financing of terrorism It would therefore be in the interest of the people of our region for us to collaborate at the Saarc level to tackle this matter" he said The Foreign Secretary asserted that connectivity holds the key for prosperity and development and will shape the destinies of all countries of South Asia "With this understanding we have embarked on significant projects in the region in areas such as rail and road building power generation and transmission waterway usage and shipping through regional sub-regional trilateral and bilateral arrangements This represents a change of mindset and makes us believe that the logic of regional cooperation has finally arrived in the region" Jaishankar asserted "Yet the pace of regional cooperation as a collective endeavour needs to be hastened especially in areas that are central to the development agenda of Saarc In this context I urge that we sign at an early date the Saarc Motor Vehicles Agreement and Saarc Railways Agreement" he said Finalisation and implementation of these agreements will realise a long standing dream of seamless movement of passengers and cargo through the entire region he added Jaishankar’s statement came a day before the Saarc ministerial meeting During his Nepal visit the Foreign Secretary yesterday also called on Nepalese Prime Minister KP Oli and met Madhesi leaders PTI Los Angeles: Eight years after conceding she was unable to "shatter that highest hardest glass ceiling" Hillary Clinton is embracing her place in history as she finally crashes through as the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Throughout her surprisingly rocky primary campaign Clinton has been cautious about emphasizing her trailblazer status But as she campaigned in California in recent days the former secretary of state signaled she was ready to acknowledge her distinction as the first woman to top the presidential ticket of a major US political party A fie image of Hillary Clinton Reuters The Associated Press determined Monday that Clinton had reached the 2383 delegates needed to become the presumptive Democratic nominee During a rally in Los Angeles Monday night Clinton said she was on the brink of a "historic unprecedented moment" while acknowledging there was still work to be done in six states voting Tuesday It’s a remarkable moment for a candidate who’s spent much of her life at the center of a heated national conversation about the role of women From stridently defending her own career famously saying in 1992 that she never "stayed home and baked cookies" to a 2008 presidential bid that shied away from mentioning her gender Clinton has addressed the issue of her historic role from nearly every angle Now she’s trying something new: owning it "Starting next Tuesday we’re on our way to breaking the highest and hardest glass ceiling" Clinton said last week in Culver City echoing the speech she made in 2008 when she conceded the Democratic primary to Barack Obama Her supporters are already there: At events in California they chanted "deal me in" when she joked about "playing the woman card" "Having a woman president will make a great statement a historic statement about what kind of country we are about what we stand for" Clinton told reporters at a community center in Compton Monday "It’s really emotional and I am someone who has been very touched and really encouraged by this extraordinary conviction people have" Campaign aides say Clinton is mindful of the significance especially when she thinks about her mother Dorothy Rodham who was born before women had the right to vote Rodham who died in 2011 was in attendance at Clinton’s concession speech in 2008 and Clinton has made her life story a focal point of the campaign That’s a reversal from her first presidential bid In 2008 Clinton believed she needed to project an image of strength to persuade voters she could be the first woman to serve as commander in chief — a "kind of tough single parent" rather than a "first mama" as Mark Penn her chief strategist at the time described it Aides and allies believe that her previous presidential run helped normalize the idea of a woman in the country’s highest position This year Clinton wants to focus on how her groundbreaking achievement is symbolic of the kind of change she wants to effect as president aides say "Breaking down barriers" has been one of her campaign slogans as she pledges to improve access to education jobs and opportunity After a challenging primary against Vermont Sen Bernie Sanders’ insurgent campaign Clinton feels confident about the contrast this message offers with likely Republican nominee Donald Trump who has made disparaging comments about women In recent days Clinton has drawn wild applause for a newly aggressive line of attack against Trump Her campaign thinks she can use Trump’s incendiary rhetoric against him particularly to win over white suburban women — a demographic Obama lost But that remains to be seen Trump has shown himself willing to go after her with gender-related attacks accusing her of "shouting" and of playing the "woman’s card" to get ahead He has also sniped at her marriage to Bill Clinton as well as his personal indiscretions The unpredictability concerns some of Clinton’s strongest allies "There’s still a huge difference between the way in which female and males either running for or being in executive positions are treated" said Randi Weingarten president of the American Federation of Teachers "Because we have not had a female executive as president of the United States we have no idea how all of this is going to play out" When she started her campaign Clinton frequently joked about being the "youngest woman president" But in recent months she had largely stopped mentioning her place in history because her campaign found it was not effective with voters That’s started to change All along Clinton has heavily emphasized issues of importance to women like paid family leave equal pay and affordable child care In California she was joined by 17 female leaders and celebrities including Sally Field Mary Steenburgen and Debra Messing Field drew huge applause as she asked why Clinton gets accused of not being likable "What is this a high school popularity contest She’s not running to be anybody’s friend She’s running to be the president of the United States" Field said To cut its losses,Shinde said.
