Why India must rethink its stance on Ukraine

India’s unsentimental pursuit of its national interest hasn’t yet come at the expense of its relationships with western democracies. Strategic partnership with India is so valued that nations are ultimately willing to overlook Delhi’s lukewarm support of the rules-based international order

We owe our freedom to the salt of our earth

This jubilee year, this year of collective recalling and celebrating, is, therefore, not just about the leaders but about those who made the leaders, powered the movements, gave the struggle its voltage, velocity and — victory
This year is a year of the Tricolour at its most fluent, its truest vibrancy. How are the people of struggling India to be honoured by the people of liberated India? By seeing this anniversary as more than a celebration of the past. By seeing it, to adapt a phrase from Abraham Lincoln, as a consecration of the present for the greatness of our future — in equity and freedom. (Raj K Raj/HT PHOTO)

While coal will remain an energy mainstay till 2030, India’s thrust on renewable energy (RE) has been remarkable. But the expansion of the RE sector and funding for the transition process will need access to finance under reasonable terms and access to green technology from the West (Getty Images/iStockphoto)

The art of a good unicorn | Crypto mania and the trap of a ‘hot’ startup
