Is the risk of nuclear war rising?

December 20, 2015

A surface-to-surface Agni V missile is launched from the Wheeler Island off the eastern Indian state of Odisha April 19, 2012. India test-fired the long range missile capable of reaching deep into China and Europe on Thursday, thrusting the emerging Asian power into an elite club of nations with intercontinental nuclear weapons capabilities. A scientist at the launch site said the launch was successful, minutes after television images showed the rocket with a range of more than 5,000 km (3,100 miles) blasting through clouds from the Wheeler Island off Odisha coast.

Being gay and ‘No One Else’ in India and the USA

December 8, 2015

Siddharth Dube’s latest book, “No One Else – A Personal History of Outlawed Love and Sex,” is more than a memoir of a gay man’s life growing up in India and the United States. It is also a firsthand account of the lives of sexual minorities in these two countries during the 1980s, a time when being gay for many meant living in fear – of disease, abuse and public scorn.
