China and Russia did not support India on its accusation of Pakistan as Terror State at BRICS - a big disappointment for India

The recently concluded 9-member BRICS conference at Goa, India has brought nothing to India, rather it rebuffed Indian Prime Minister's effort to drag in Pakistan and ratify it as a terrorist state by Russian and Chinese leaders.

Indian Express writes:
The Prime Minister proclaimed, in his closing statement at the summit, that BRICS member-states were “agreed that those who nurture, shelter, support and sponsor such forces of violence and terror are as much a threat to us as the terrorists themselves”. The BRICS 109 paragraph summit declaration, however, doesn’t have a single sentence reflecting this purported consensus—not even the words “nurture”, “shelter” or “sponsor”.

Thus the Indian PM Modi has just been delivered an unhappy lesson at the  BRICS summit in Goa: though nine-tenths of geopolitics is about bluff, the critical one-tenth is about knowing when to fold, writes Praveen Swami of Indian Express.

Pakistan wins first ever Pink-Ball Test Match

It was a great day at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday, 17 October, when Pakistan won the first ever day-night test match played with a pink ball.

The match was played between Pakistan and the West Indies as part of the three test match series, which Pakistan won by 56 runs. Another laurel of the day was that Pakistan was playing its 400th test match and won it.

Pakistan's Yasir Shah also became the second bowler to earn 100 wickets in 17 test matches. Previously for Pakistan, Saeed Ajmal had completed 100 wickets in 19 test matches.

Although Pakistan scored a mighty 579 in the first innings, it crumbled for mere 123 in the second, much owed to Bishoo's eight wickets. And West Indians seemed to be winning the test match and were mere 56 runs away from victory when their last wicket fell.

SAARC Boycott by Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Bhutan No Victory for India

India seems to be celebrating victory after Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Bhutan follow the suit and have boycotted the planned SAARC summit in Pakistan

However, G Pramod Kumar at Huffington Post calls it no victory for India as all three countries are fed by India and they had to follow suit of their master.  The Post writer is of the view that had the other three members, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Maldives also followed the suit, it could have then been a diplomatic victory for India and a reason to rejoice.

Even otherwise SAARC is not a crucial and significant organization is South Asia the boycott of which will have any far fetched implications, adds the writer.The planned summit meeting has however been postponed due to absence of four of its members.

Indian Army's adventure of Surgical Strikes along Pakistan border flops

It seems that Indian Army and Indian government is hell bent to spoil peace between the two countries as its army tried to create a scene at the control line along the disputed border of Kashmir last night.

The so called surgical attacks, as claimed by Indian general as a revenge for Uri incident was completely foiled and reports say that Indian commandos ran back to their terriory. The rocket and mortar firing resulted in martyrdom of two Pakistani army soldiers.

Terming their violation and firing across the cease fire line as 'surgical strikes' speaks volumes of nativity of Indian army top brass about the very definition of surgical strikes. Even Indian politicians are doubting Indian Army claims of surgical strikes.

However, the incident has further deteriorated the relations between Pakistan and India which are witnessing a downward trend due to concocted and self-made  incidents from Indian side.

The attack of Zika virus is becoming a concern for the health officials of Britain as the cases of Zika attack are slowing building up as reported by the Daily Mail.

It was a remarkable day for Pakistan to beat England in the heart of Lord's cricket ground by 75 runs. The victory came after a spell of 20 long years.

While performing brilliantly himself, Misbah scored a century at the age of 43 years in the first innings to go down in the history books being the oldest to score a ton. Not only him, another emerging bowler Yasir Shah took five wickets in the first innings and also broke a 20 years old record. Yasir was declared man of the match for bagging 10 wickets in both innings.

At the end of the match, the Pakistan team not only dedicated the victory to Abdul Sattar Edhi, the Pakistani philanthropist who died earlier this month, but also thanked Pakistan Army for arranging a rigorous pre-departure camp to keep the boys in super fit shape.

Up to 100 Turkish soldiers surrender on Bosphorus Bridge after their military coup fails, ending with 60 dead and President Erdogan vowing revenge: 'They will pay a heavy price for their treason.' More than 750 rebel soldiers have been detained after the failed coup.

At least 60 people including 17 police officers have been killed in the clashes in a bid to restore the president's rule. The coup launching soldiers bombed the Turkish parliamentary building and gunned down police and citizens protesting their unconstitutional move.

Misbah becomes oldest player in history to hit a century

Pakistan's disputed cricket team skipper Misbah, oft criticized for his age, has become the oldest man in the history of cricket to score a century at the age of 42 at Lords against England in the first test match being played between the two countries these days.

It may be a coincidence that this is Misbah's first ever century playing against England in England. He thus becomes the sixth oldest player in Test history to make a century. After scoring his 100, Misbah performed several press-ups, just as 73-year-old actor Jack Palance did when winning the Best Supporting Actor Oscar at the 1992 Academy awards.

It may be recalled that Misbah equaled West Indies' Vivian Richards´s then world record for the fastest-ever Test century in mere 56-ball hundred against Australia in Abu Dhabi in 2014 :a mark surpassed by Brendon McCullum´s 54-ball hundred for New Zealand against Australia at Christchurch in February.
