Re: Future Strategic Scenario for the Indian Subcontinent -I

Do the Brits sense a neo-Ottoman collapse redux occurring in the future (with an Asian player playing Britain's role) and working overtime to preempt just such an eventuality? OTOH, there are issues of mind-share and posturing involved with the concept of Eurabia coming around in a few decades. Brit...

Re: Narendra Modi vs the Dynasty: Contrasting Ideas of India

Dawood's translated Qur'an is one of the recommended ones, within academic circles. Although, I would hazard a guess that even this work comes with its fair share of biases (including any bias within the person pushing through such a recommendation).

Apologies for the OT. Could continue in Nukkad.
