LONDON/MOSCOW: OPEC+ oil producers will discuss a modest easing of oil supply curbs from April given a recovery in prices, OPEC+ sources said, although some suggest holding steady for now given the risk of new setbacks in the battle against the pandemic. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies, known as OPEC+, cut output by a record 9.7 million bpd last year as demand collapsed due to the pandemic. As of February, it is still withholding 7.125 million bpd, about 7% of world demand. In January OPEC+ slowed the pace of a planned output increase to match weaker-than-expected demand due to continued coronavirus lockdowns. Saudi Arabia made extra voluntary cuts for February and March. Three OPEC+ sources said an output increase of 500,000 barrels per day from April looked possible without building up inventories, although updated supply and demand balances that ministers will consider at their March 4 meeting will determine their decision.

'The Mughals became completely Indian in every sense and united the vast Indian subcontinent, not only territorially, but also the hearts and minds of people with multiple religio-cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversities' IMAGE: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ajay Singh Bisht also known as Yogi Adityanath. Ancient Prayag was destroyed in a flood. Long after that, the fort and the city of Allahabad was founded in 1583 by the Mughal ruler Akbar. Professor Syed Ali Nadeem Rezavi, my colleague and an expert in Medieval Indian History, informs us: "Akbar had named it Ilah bas , which during the reign of Shahjahan became popular as Illahabad . The British started writing it as Allahabad, the City of Allah!" "Why did Akbar give the name Ilah bas ? Two reasons are forwarded, one by contemporary Persian sources, the other a legend based on local mythology," says Professor Rezavi. "According to the contemporary chronicles, like the account of Abdul Qadir Badayuni, when ... » Learn More about Is Yogi scared of the Mughals?

Video Player Close BEIJING, Feb. 25 (Xinhua) -- When Mao Zedong stood on Tian'anmen Rostrum in Beijing to declare the birth of New China in 1949, a Herculean task stood before him and the Communist Party of China (CPC) that he led: feeding and clothing 540 million Chinese people, nearly 90 percent of whom lived in rural areas. "Poverty is not socialism," "socialism means eliminating poverty," and "we must keep abreast of the times; that is the purpose of our reform," said Deng Xiaoping, the visionary chief architect of China's reform and opening-up which began in 1978 when the country's incidence of rural poverty was 97.5 percent. Eradicating poverty is a war China must win, with the hardest and most arduous tasks lie in the country's rural areas and poverty-stricken regions. In 2020, all of China's nearly 100 million rural residents living below the current poverty line shook off poverty after eight years of arduous efforts.

When South Africa lost to India on Sunday, they cemented their reputation for 'choking' in ICC tournaments. IMAGE: South Africa's ODI Captain A B de Villiers. Photograph: Gareth Copley/Getty Images In what had turned in to a virtual quarter-final on Sunday, June 11, South Africa were cruising along nicely against India. They had reached 140 for the loss of two wickets and looked all set to finish with a mammoth total, with A B de Villiers and Faf du Plessis at the crease. Against the run of play India got the all-important wicket of de Villiers thanks to a terrible mix-up between the two batsmen. India also got David Miller in similar fashion and soon South Africa lost their way, losing wickets in a hurry and finally folding for a below-par 191. India did not face much difficulty in overhauling the target and sealed a place in the semi-finals. This is not the first time South Africa have choked in an ICC tournament. They have a history of doing that ... » Learn More about Why South Africa are Cricket’s Chokers
