First Pakistani PM to attend Indian PM Oath Taking Ceremony

The attendance of Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to accept the Indian PM designate Mr Modi to attend his oath taking ceremony would be the first of its kind since both countries obtained independence form the British in 1947.

The two nuclear-armed rivals have fought three wars in the past 60 years.

The visit is being viewed with interest as Mr Modi is seen as a hardliner on national security issues and his BJP party advocates a tough stance on Pakistan. Even Mr Modi has made very provocative statements against Pakistan in the past.

It may be added that outgoing Indian PM Mr Singh was invited to Mr Sharif's inauguration last year but did not attend.

India has a new PM with blood on his hand

Narendra Modi, a hardliner of India’s BJP has become the new Indian prime minster with land slide victor over the ruling Congress Party – but he has blood on his hands of thousands of Muslims when he was chief minister of Gujrat.

An attack on a train what killed 59 passengers in Gujrat 12 years back, sparked vicious retribution against local Muslims. The Hindu mobs went on the rampage, raping hundreds of women and burning children after pouring kerosene down their throats.

Men were forced to watch their families tortured to death, and then they too were slaughtered. About 2,000 people died and 200,000 made homeless over three nightmarish days.Despite pleas for protection, Muslims were ignored by officials.

Now the same man is the new Indian prime minister and there are many concerns about his treatment to the Indian Muslims and relations with neighboring Pakistan. 

Modi was banned from entering the US and shunned by British diplomats. How would the British and US government feel now entertaining a prime minister of biggest democracy of the world with blood on his hands?

Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 ended its fateful journey in Southern Indian Ocean

Today, after some 16 days since the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 went missing with 239 on-board, it has finally been announced by the Malaysian prime minster that the ill-fated aircraft ended its journey south west of Australia in the Indian Ocean.

The news finally puts an end to all speculations as the analysis of the available data has been carried out by  UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch and Inmarsat.

The search was diverted to the southern Indian Ocean when an Australian Air Force plane spotted objects large enough to be part of the ill-fated aircraft. However so far no physical contact with the debris has been made due to bad weather and a race is now on to reach the debris earlier than others.

Now that the announcement has been made, the only solace for the relatives of the passenger on-board the Boeing 777 would be to have their bodies found – if this could be done somehow.

In China, where relative and friends of more than 150 passengers of the Flight MH370 had gathered, many moving scenes have been reported - even some elderly people have been seen taken on stretchers to hospitals.

Consignment of lethal Lithium batteries aboard Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370

It has been over two weeks since the ill-fated Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370 disappeared and despite launching of the world’s biggest plane hunt no clue has yet been found – much to the agony of the friends and relatives of those 239 passengers onboard.

Australia had a few days ago notified that two large floating pieces of metal have been spotted by satellites and the hunt has since then diverted to the area – but nothing conclusive has as yet been found due to rough seas in the area.

Meanwhile conspiracy theories continue to make matters worse and complicated. Now the latest is that the CEO of the Malaysian Airlines has confessed that a big consignment of lithium batteries, commonly used in laptops, was aboard the ill-fated plane. These Lithium-ion batteries catch fire very soon and have already caused 140 mid-air incidents in last 20 years. It may be recalled that one cargo plane crashed in 2010 after attempting an emergency landing.

And in case these caught fire, the toxic fumes may have incapacitated the entire lot of passengers and crew onboard. 

But despite this latest admittance, the whereabouts of the plane or its debris is yet to be found. And the answer as to why the aircraft had diverted from its flight path are yet to be answered.

Banning British soldiers from training in Extreme Cold causes Amusement in local Norwegians

A file photo shows British soldiers training in snow conditions - and are being banned by health and safety rules from training at a military base in the Arctic circle - because it's too cold
British soldiers are being banned by health and safety rules from training at a Norwegian military base in the Arctic circle - because it's too cold.

This means that the British soldiers cannot join NATO counterparts in Porsanger, Norway.

Since temperatures can drop to -25C, but rules prevent soldiers from facing them.

Adherence to 'rules' has caused 'amusement' among locals, says a Norwegian officer. Locals at the Allied Training Centre in Porsanger in Norway said they were stunned that while Norwegian troops were out in -25C weather, the Brits were being kept in the warm because of the army rules.
