Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met on the sidelines of the latest BRICS Summit in Brasilia and agreed that the High-Level Mechanism on Trade and Economy, that they decided to establish after last month's "Chennai Connect," should meet at an early date. This is a very encouraging sign which suggests that there is a political will on both sides to strengthen partnership following recent economic and geopolitical disagreements. India surprised many observers earlier this month when it refused to join the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) that was supposed to have been finalized in Bangkok during the ASEAN Summit.

Walking into the campaign headquarters of Ram Bhuyal Nishad, the Samajwadi Party candidate for the Gorakhpur Lok Sabha seat, at 7 am is slightly unsettling. The venue is someone's vacant home. The air is thick with the smell of stale sweat. Scores of men can be seen rushing in and out of toilets in various stages of undress. There are no women. The Nishad (boatmen) community is nearly 300,000-strong in Gorakhpur. "Their job? They fish by day and drink by night," says an upper caste Bharatiya Janata Party leader, guffawing. The Nishads consider themselves scheduled caste, though they are counted as other backward class, which puts them in the same category as the Yadavs. Socially they are far lower on the caste … [Read more...] about Does Yogi want Ravi Kishan elected from Gorakhpur?
