'Success comes only to those who dare and act,' says proud father Ambassador T P Sreenivasan.Things happen in life in strange ways. I was not scheduled to return to Thiruvananthapuram till late last night after participating in the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Chinchwad Malayalee Association near Pune, together with former chief minister Oommen Chandy. But I felt I should return sooner as my son Sree Sreenivasan and his twin children, Durga and Krishna, were at home. My hosts helpfully suggested that I could drive to Mumbai and catch a flight, that would bring me to Thiruvananthapuram in the afternoon. The celebrated expressway from Pune turned out to be much more hazardous than I had expected with heavy rain above and pot holes below. Once we reached Dharavi of Slumdog Millionaire fame, I thought that there was no way I could catch the flight. But my skillful driver, who makes this trip twice a day, assured me that he would get me there in time for the flight. He expressed … [Read more...] about Sreexit and After

"The word is it's historic," Trump told Fox News Channel about an upcoming Justice Department watchdog report on the FBI's adherence to Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act requirements during the 2016 campaign. "That's what I hear. If it's historic, you're going to see something," Trump said on Friday, declining to say how he knew. He also said he wanted an impeachment trial in the Senate. Trump supporters have claimed the report from the Justice Department's inspector general, which is expected to be released on December 9, will raise questions about the legitimacy of FBI investigations into alleged links to Russia by Trump and some of his campaign advisers. A central issue the inspector general's office said the report looked into is how closely the FBI stuck to the law and rules when it went to a secret court beginning in 2016 to obtain authorisation to conduct electronic monitoring of "a certain US person." Carter Page, a one-time foreign policy adviser to Trump's 2016 campaign, … [Read more...] about Trump says Russia probe report ‘historic’
HOUSTON: In honour of fallen Indian-American Sikh police officer Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal, the Houston Police Department has changed its dress code policy to allow the minority community members to represent their faith while on duty. On September 28, Dhaliwal, a 10-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff's office and its first Sikh deputy, was gunned down while conducting a mid-day traffic stop in northwest of Houston. The 42-year-old trailblazing police officer made national headlines when he was allowed to grow a beard and wear a turban on the job. "@houstonpolice is now the largest law enforcement agency in TX to adopt a policy allowing officers to wear articles of faith on duty," City of Houston tweeted on Monday.

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump on Friday accused a witness in the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry of lying and offered an explanation for his controversial use of his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine policy, saying Giuliani's crime-fighting abilities were needed to deal with a corrupt country. Trump made his remarks the day after the fifth and final scheduled day of public hearings in the US House of Representatives inquiry, which threatens his presidency even as he seeks re-election in November 2020. The Republican president took issue with testimony on Thursday by David Holmes, a US embassy official in Ukraine. Holmes said under oath that at a Kiev restaurant he overheard a July 26 cellphone conversation in which Trump loudly pressed Gordon Sondland, the US ambassador to the European Union, for details on whether Ukraine would carry out politically motivated investigations the president was seeking. "I guarantee you that never took place," Trump told Fox News Channel's … [Read more...] about Donald Trump accuses impeachment witness of lying, defends use of Giuliani
