False Start
REPUBLICA
Modi and SAARC Summit
The reason Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi cancelled (yes, it’s now confirmed) his pilgrimage visits to Janakpur, Lumbini and Muktinath might have nothing to do with developments in Nepal. The Indian Ministry of External Affairs on Sunday cited PM Modi’s “unavoidable commitments and pre-scheduled travels within the country
Hybrid Delusions
CK Lal
Marigolds have begun to wilt on limping stems. Rice fields are yellow again. Tree leaves have started to pale and fall. In the early morning, misty haze hugs the ground. By the late afternoon, dry winds sometimes succeed in driving away the gray shroud and then the Himalayan peaks tower over partially brown and green rim of the Kathmandu Valley. Slow flows the sludge in Bagmati riverbed. November is a time of hope and a time of despair.

Autumn, and along with it the season of festivals, is over. After an interlude of season of marriages, a very long winter is just around the corner. Winter warmers are set out to dry in sometimes bright and sometimes faint sun. Cotton quilts are dusted off. Peeling away layers of time with half-ripe oranges or roasted pods of peanuts in the sun will never feel as pleasant. Days have begun to shorten but nights are yet to become long. November is the month of contemplation and transition.
Combating Terrorism
Prem Singh Basnyat
SAARC
Terrorism in South Asia in the past few years has grown more grisly. Terrorists appear to be looking for bigger and more dramatic actions to draw regional and world attention to their twisted causes. Especially Afghanistan and Pakistan regularly witness gruesome terrorist attacks. A regional initiative, therefore, needs to be launched as part of preventive measures, which should be based on “human security” approach. It consists of political right, food, housing, education, medication, individual security, opportunity, equality and equitable treatment.

The conventional approach to combating terrorism may not be fruitful. The level of threat analysis has focused on the state and its law-enforcement, intelligence, and military capabilities. The information super highway is much faster than military appreciation so that counter measures should be based on a regional approach. Suggestions below can be considered viable preventive measures against terrorism in the region.
