Most dangerous place for journalists: Pakistan

- Alive Correspondent   28-01-2013

Just a decade back it might have made a best comic piece on a bullet-proof jackets’ sales-man’s visit to the office of a news organisation to fetch a business deal. But two nights back when a gentleman with a heavy bundle of this military merchandize turned up

Hundred Islands Nature’s wonder

- Alive Correspondent   28-01-2013

Excitement ran high as I took the bus from Manila to the town of Alaminos, gateway to the Hundred Islands National Park, lying in the South China Sea. This is nature’s wonder at its best. A number of islands and islets sprout out of the ocean to reveal

Jungle trekking at Ton Luk Chang

- Alive Correspondent   28-01-2013

Nai Harn beach is known for its gentle waves. It is the best beach in Phuket for those who enjoy gentle waves and shallow waters. I had booked into the Mangosteen Resort and Spa in Phuket, Thailand. Mangosteen Resort, that crowns the peak of a hill among a multitude of

A salute to the heroic spirit of Hiroshima

- Alive Correspondent   02-01-2013

Until recently, for me, Hiroshima was a place in Japan, confined to newspaper columns, history text-books or television visuals that commemorated the atomic explosion, on 6 August every year. Little did I know that I would, one day, step into that very site, which symbolised man’s brutality and destructive

Political turmoil in Egypt

- Alive Correspondent   02-01-2013

A proper insight into the current political turmoil in Egypt can scarcely be understood, much less appreciated, unless it is explained historically. The conflict between fundamentalist Islam  (as represented by the Muslim Brotherhood and others such as the scholars of al-Azhar University) with liberals and secularists, is one, which

‘Believe it or not’ cricket

- Alive Correspondent   02-01-2013

This is a true account of a One-Day International match, which must have been the most amazing game ever played in the history of cricket. You may have heard of One-Day Internationals, in which one team was all out in just 18 overs, or even less. But have you ever heard

Ricky Ponting one roaring career

- Alive Correspondent   02-01-2013

Ricky Thomas Ponting will be missed in international cricket. The greatest Australian batsman, after Sir Donald Bradman, hung up his boots after the conclusion of the third and final Test against South Africa in Perth. Incidentally, it was in Perth that Ponting started his Test career against Sri Lanka, in 1995.

Legless runner beats pedigree Arab steed

- Alive Correspondent   02-01-2013

This South African sprinter has no legs. The “blade runner”, as he is known, was born with fibular haemimelia (congenital absence of the fibula) in both legs. So both of Oscar Pistorius’ legs were amputated halfway between his knees and ankles when he was just 11 months old.

Enchanting Sri Lanka

- Alive Correspondent   27-12-2012

Sri Lanka? Are you sure?” I could see many quizzical eyebrows around and a bored look on many faces. But time was running out! So we just needed to just grab it by the tail and move, or this summer too would drift by, dry and fun-less! We check

Void & devoid of Pakistan

- Alive Correspondent   27-12-2012

Indians pose the biggest threat to the Union of India. The reason is simple. An average Indian does not constitute a nation but is merely an individual. His or her personal well-being overrides all other considerations including the national interests. Therefore, many have begun to propagate parting with Kashmir in

My sojourn in Turkey

- Alive Correspondent   27-12-2012

It was the month of March when I embarked on a 10-day sojourn of Turkey by crossing the Syrian/Turkey land border. It was a bit cold and drizzling as the bus commenced its brief journey towards the border. It was still dark as the bus sped through small villages.

Kudos to Invincible Federer and Serena for triumphant

- Alive Correspondent   27-12-2012

Roger Federer has won the Wimbledon crown triumphantly this year and is in the exalted company of Willie Renshaw and Pete Sampras, after matching the latter’s record in bagging the title for the seventh time. The tennis sensation joined Rod Laver by winning the event after attaining the

Indo-Myanmar Relations

- Alive Correspondent   27-12-2012

The recent visit to Myanmar by the Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh is important for two reasons. The first is the warming up of the West to the country hit so long with sanctions after the release of the democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi which has opened up

My sojourn in Turkey

- Alive Correspondent   27-12-2012

Part-II   Pamukkale It was bitterly cold and windy as I came down the hill to the small bus-terminal, which had only a few private bus companies’ offices. I had to wait for an hour before the bus arrived. We were headed towards the resort town of Pamukkale, famous

Indian Immigrants facing violence in North America

- Alive Correspondent   27-12-2012

The macabre killings of worshippers at the Oak Creek (Wisconsin ) Gurudwara on 5 August, 2012 by the late Wade Michael Page, cast a pall of gloom in both the US and India, not merely because of the grave tragedy, but for the plausible reasons, which brought it about. Sons and daughters of

Chaos and confusion compound Syria

- Alive Correspondent   27-12-2012

The year-long battle between the Assad regime and the fragmented Opposition seems headed for a new phase of international involvement. On the one hand, Russia, China and Iran oppose regime-change and, on the other hand, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, France, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are yearning

Trip to the dreamy springs of Sourt

- Alive Correspondent   25-12-2012

Imagine walking on orange-coloured rocks, with water dripping from all corners… When you look back, the ground is sea-green. A little further, the ground is layered yellow … Just as you are tasting the water from the rocks … sour, cool, different... out of the blue, somebody comes and

Stopover in Strasbourg

- Alive Correspondent   25-12-2012

It took us only two hours and 20 minutes to get to Strasbourg from Paris, 360 kilometres away, on the TGV, Europe’s high-speed train. We had booked two nights at a hotel, with the day and a half in between, to see this picturesque city. It was declared a World

The Syrian sacrilege

- Alive Correspondent   25-12-2012

During the past few months, most of our dailies were obediently publishing Western agency-fed reports on the ongoing “rebellion” by a previously unknown entity called Free Syrian Army and the Syrian government’s “atrocities”, while countering the same. To get a little first-hand feedback, I

Names of some nations: How were they acquired?

- Alive Correspondent   13-12-2012

It will be interesting — at times thrilling and exciting — to know how some well-known countries on this planet had acquired their names. In myriads of cases acquisition of names have adventurous histories behind them, quite amazing and awesome. Cricket made us quite familiar with the country West Indies.
