WHY WE ARE NOT FRIENDS
Why have relations between India and China, which together house nearly 40 per cent of the world’s population, been troubled for over 60 years? In recent years, serious military confrontation has underlined their differences. This book examines these differences in four areas: their perceptions and prejudices about each other; disagreements over the border; changing partnerships with America and Russia; and the power asymmetry between them.
What does the future hold? In this insightful book, author Kanti Bajpai decodes the complex history of India-china relations and argues that the path ahead is a difficult one. Crucial to the relationship will be India’s ability to reduce the enormous gap with China in economic, military, and even soft power.
by Sudeep Sen offers a collection of creative non-fiction, essay, prose, poetry and photography which addresses the toughest challenges faced by humanity in the 21st century — the pandemic and climate change.
A literary and artistic response to the most urgent issues that face humanity now, Anthropocene tackles the complexities head-on. It interrogates our lives against the backdrop of a changing landscape. Amid all the negative noise in the world, here is a quiet artistic offering, a testament to our fervent times where the ravages of climate change scar humanity, and where Fascist politics overrides the silence of introspection.
Ultimately, the book urges us to slow down. It is time once again to learn how to love selflessly and embrace hope and healing.
