I greet my Audiences; Fans; Passing By Visitors; Learneds or known by any other name at Transition of Time to a New Year of New Decade of Very Young Century

I am thankful for and to my audiences who have managed to see my traffic grow through 2009 till date being a digit containing many firsts  in a way, really, it is 01.01.11,  and have been uncaring for Charges by their service providers.

Let me promise you that in the coming year too, my efforts will still be focused on maintaining a mature communication and relation with you and at the same time all efforts would be made to keep the same advertisement free, till the same can be afforded by me under my resources and with help of service providers.

It has been my wish that till possible the domain of knowledge should be kept a bit away from market and commerce. At the same time it should not be demeaned by attaching some material value to it. Knowledge is not something to be traded and neither Professors or Gurus are Traders.  Normally they happen to be much detached from material things. Society should by itself  create a provision where, its the society which is responsible for their needs and should try execute their words in spirits.

This feeling is being aired even after being fully aware of the fact, that market and commerce are two potent forces that give birth to objectives, which  humans strive to achieve, as they think  it as something worth achieving, and thus remain objective less life long. However these happen to be nothing else  but illusions.

Probably due to these reasons academic institutions are planned at place far away from town or city area, so that interaction with material forces can be minimized to the least possible levels.

Any individual only worried to get the show going with no attachment  to value System can only be called a common man; a  man attached to material pleasures just like other men can only be called a tutor and not professor.

I am not seeking any donation till I am able to support it by myself and from my pocket. I also have faith on good number of  individuals who like me would pour after pooling in all possible resources to make it happen like this only.  This is must, just due to the reasons that I want to see truth and freedom co – exist; irrespective of my existence.

I am just trying to stand upright on a  Grave yard of Academics called University in My Language or the language of people who interact with same domain.

One more card wishing you all a new year with few of my affiliations shown on it.

A LOOK ON SOME FASTEST GROWING ECONOMIES–AT A RATE HIGHER THAN INDIA-NOTHING TO BE SURPRISED

GHANA

Several African nations are now growing at a rapid pace. So, this way Ghana also is no exception. It’s unique only in a way that, no nation is witnessing the growth in GDP rate as high as Ghana. Since a long GHANAtime, unflattering adjectives like ‘worst managed’, ‘disastrous’, etc., were used when it came to talking of Ghana; but now they do not hold true. The Ghana of today has come a long way ahead in its journey towards prosperity and has earned the status of being the world’s fastest growing economy today. Ghana’s economy is growing at a phenomenal rate of 20.15 per cent. Ghana is oil-rich, has large gold and diamond deposits, while at the same time, the boom that is being witnessed by its tourism sector has added more glitter to its diamonds.

QATAR

Qatar is an oil- and gas-rich nation with world’s third largest gas reserves. It has undoubtedly enjoyed the status of being a nation which is world’s largest exporters of petroleum, and has got something more remarkable added to it. The growth in GDP of Qatar has helped it in achieving a new distinction, and that is of being the world’s second fastest growing economy growing at a rate of 12.337 per cent. The economy of Qatar is QATARprimarily oil-based. High oil and gas prices have boosted the economy of this Gulf state over the last few years. The per capita income of Qataris stands at $66,100, which in comparative terms makes it, a nation with sixth highest per capita in the world, and still Qataris do not know a phenomenon known as Income Tax .

TURKMENISTAAN

Turkmenistan is also not far away when it comes in terms of being blessed with reserves of natural gas. In this context Turkmenistan stands at the rank of being world’s fourth-largest nation in terms of owning the reserves of natural gas. In present story it has earned slot at number three, due to it being the world’s third fastest growing nation with a GDP growth rate of 12.18 per cent. Although oil and gas is the biggest revenue generator for Turkmenistan, agriculture too accounts for a healthy percentage of its GDP. Citizens in Turkmenistan get 120 liters of petrol free every month for car drivers, while TURKMENISTAANtruck/bus drivers get 200 liters of petrol free. Apart from this, electricity too is subsidized for the citizens. Probably, one should not expect beyond this and turn greedy.

CHINA

China, which in this story has earned a slot at number four, also happens to be the world’s fourth fastest growing economy at 9.908% GDP growth rate. In monetary terms, it turns out to be of order of amazing $6 trillion. However, now certain not so desired elements have started to raise their heads. The rising inflation rate in China is a new challenge, which stands in way of growth, of the economy of the country. China’s gross domestic product grew 9.6 per cent in the third CHINAquarter as compared to the same period last year. The growth rate slowed down from 11.9 per cent in the first quarter and 10.3 per cent in the second quarter.

LIBERIA

Even though, the nation still continues to live with dubious and infamous distinction of being one of the poorest countries on earth; Liberia has recorded robust economic activity in past couple of years. This African nation, despite of all said and done, has managed to steal the fifth rank when it comes to the list of world’s fastest growing economies. The Liberia, now as world’s fifth fastest growing economyLIBERIA has a GDP growth rate of 9.003 per cent. It is a $1.05 billion economy. The nation has rich reserves of iron ore, and also exports rubber. In the last few years, it has been receiving a lot of foreign direct investment which has resulted in higher employment, better infrastructure and spurt in economic activity.

SEASON OF ONION POLITICS IS IN: MIDDLE CLASS BE AWARE: CAVEAT ISSUED

UPA FACES MOUNTING CRITICISM ON ONION PRICES

Faced with mounting criticism over sky—high onion prices, the government on Thursday asserted the situation will improve “very quickly” thanks to steps taken to increase availability, including transportation of stocks to markets where the commodity is in short supply.

“I think it will ease very quickly. We had a Committee of Secretaries meeting, so we have decided to move onions from different areas… We will certainly do whatever required bringing down the prices of onions,” Cabinet Secretary K.M. Chandrasekhar told reporters here. He said the Railways has agreed to provide the rakes required to move onion stocks from different parts of the country to retail markets worst affected by the supply shortfall.Time for Onion Show Off

Onion prices have skyrocketed in recent days, as crops in the main producing state of Maharashtra have been damaged due to unseasonal rains.

“I understand there is a shortfall in Maharashtra, but Karnataka is reasonably good and Gujarat is producing quite a lot of onions. We will try to make some more movements,” Mr. Chandrasekhar said.

He added that the Commerce Ministry is also scouting for overseas sources to import onions.

With a view to bring down onion prices, which had raced to as much as Rs 85 per kg in some retail markets, the government had on Tuesday night removed customs and countervailing duties on onions. The commodity earlier attracted 5 per cent customs duty and 4 per cent countervailing duty. Furthermore, the government announced an indefinite ban on exports of onions. In addition, consignments of onions have been making their way into the country from neighboring Pakistan at rates almost four times less than the peak rate seen in retail markets like Delhi.

Consequently, wholesale prices of onions have begun to fall rapidly and the effect is also beginning to show in the retail market. Wholesale onion prices rose by 4.56 per cent during the week ended December 11.

PRIME MINISTER ASKS MINISTRIES TO BRING DOWN ONION PRICES

Union government has refused to play Santa Claus and regulate market forces, the merciless rise in onion prices threatens to mar Christmas, New Year and Makar Sankrantri festivities.

Several markets reporting a further rise in prices to about Rs.85 a kg,  has made Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to interven, by directing the Ministries of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs to take steps to bring its prices to affordable levels.

According to sources, the Prime Minister, in his letter, wanted the two Ministries to monitor the situation on a day-to-day basis to bring the prices of onions down. However, the fact was that the common man would not get to sport a smile for at least three more weeks. This was underlined by Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar who declared that the prices of onions would continue to scorch the kitchens as of now.

Onion at Azaadpur Mandi New Delhi - Wholesale Market

He ruled out any intervention through imports and expressed his dependence on the next batch of arrivals of onions, which continued to command a stiff price of Rs.70 plus a kg, without any let-up in retail markets of Delhi and other cities. The Agriculture Minister said that onion prices would remain high for at least the next two to three weeks. He attributed the rise in prices of onions to unseasonal rains in Nasik in Maharashtra damaging onions on a major scale, and said that the prices would come down when the bulbs arrive from Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh in the next two to three weeks. He, however, hoped that the government’s action of suspending exports till January 15 and doubling export price would help reduce the prices of onion.

FINANCE MINISTERY DESCRIBED RISE IN ONION PRICES AS UNFORTUNATE

Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee described the rise in onion prices as unfortunate and said that he would be talking to ministries concerned to ensure adequate supply of onions in the market. Stressing on the mismatch in demand and supply, Mr. Mukherjee hoped that appropriate steps would be taken to remove the bottlenecks to bring the prices down.

The Union Agriculture Ministry claimed that wholesale prices of onions in Nasik in Maharashtra and Azadpur market declined by 35 per cent and 13 percent respectively on Tuesday, following the decision of the Price Fixation Advisory Committee to voluntarily suspend issuance of no-objection certificates for export of onion.

More Onions

Communist Party of India MP Gurudas Dasgupta said that the rise in prices of essential food items and that of onion was due to excessive liberalization of the market without any required safeguard, excessive export, forward trading and stockpiling, with generous bank advances and hoarding by unscrupulous manipulators of the market.

OPPOSITION GETS MORE AMMUNITION SUPPLY TO FIRE AT GOVERNMENT

The skyrocketing onion prices have provided more ammunition to critics of the government in the Opposition, who were already protesting the decision not to constitute a Joint Parliamentary Committee to probe the 2G telecom scam. As Onion prices skyrocket across the country, the Opposition BJP and the Left closed ranks to slam the UPA government accusing it of remaining a “mute spectator” while the ruling alliance’s key ally Trinamool Congress also showed signs of discomfort.

The opposition parties also accused the Government of surrendering before market forces for the extraordinary increase in prices of the bulb. With the price of onions — which is perhaps the most essential ingredient for any Indian food — a matter of extreme political sensitivity, state governments vowed to take stern action against those involved in hoarding and black-marketing of onions.

“As the prices go higher and higher, the government stands as a mute spectator, reflecting its helplessness before the market forces. The government has totally surrendered before the market forces,” CPI leader D Raja said. “It (Government) is making excuses that hoarding is the reason for the high prices of onions. If that is true, then it should have taken action,” he said.

BJP president Nitin Gadkari faulted the “wrong” economic policies and “bad governance” of Congress party and the UPA for the sudden surge in onion prices which has nearly doubled to touch Rs 80 per kg in the last few days in several parts of the country. Mr. Gadkari accused the government of being a failure in taking timely steps to check onion prices.India-Pakistaan-Onion Trade

With Assembly elections in West Bengal due next year, Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool apparently does not want surging prices of the bulb to be an issue. “We have always been against price rise be it for petrol or anything… We are against it (rise in onion prices),” TMC MP Partha Chatterjee said.

IMPORTED ONIONS ARRIVE FROM PAKISTAN THROUGH THE ATTARI-WAGAH LAND ROUTE

Soaring prices of onion in the country witnessed truckloads of the commodity arriving from Pakistan through the Attari-Wagah land route for supply to northern markets in India on Monday. As many as 13 truck loads (5 to 15 tons per truck) of onion have arrived from Pakistan, a senior official of Customs Department in Amritsar told PTI without quantifying the total import consignment.

“About five (Indian) importers have brought in onion from Lahore today for supply in the markets of Ludhiana,Amritsar, Jalandhar in Punjab and Delhi,” the official said. The landed cost of onion from Pakistan stood at Rs. 18-20 per kg, he said adding this included custom duty, cess, transportation and handling charges.

According to importers, it was for the first time in this year, onions are being imported from Pakistan. “We, this year exported onion to Pakistan in the month of March and April. Now we are importing it from them (Pakistan),” Rajdeep Uppal, the MD of a leading Amritsar trading company Narain Exim said.

Mr. Uppal said, as far as his company is concerned, it imported 100 Metric Tonne (MT) of onion today at a rate of USD400 per MT.  He said it would import 500 MT of onion in coming days from Sindh provision in Pakistan.  India and Pakistan agreed to commence truck movement from Attari Check post in Oct. 2007, after a gap of sixty years to boost bilateral trade.Pakistani Onion

Vegetable traders imported onion at USD 400 a tonne (around Rs 18,000 a tonne) from Sindh provision in Pakistan. “The size of crop in Pakistan is also not very huge… therefore rising demand from India has pushed up the rates, which will result in higher payment for imported onion,” he said. After the arrival of 13 truck loads (9 Tonne) of onion at Amritsar via Attari-Wagah land route, 38 trucks carrying fresh consignment of onion today entered Indian Territory at Amritsar, official of the Custom Department at Amritsar said. According to traders, close to 450 tonnes of onion has arrived from Pakistan within a day or two. The landed cost of onion from Pakistan was Rs 18-20 per kg including custom duty, cess, transportation and handling charges, he said. Though arrival of onion from Pakistan could not rein in commodity prices in local markets of Amritsar, yet the onion from Lahore commanded lesser rates compared with Indian onion.

“Onion from Pakistan was being sold at Rs 36-37 per kg in wholesale market while Indian onion was fetching Rs 45-50 per kg in wholesale market,” said Kailash, a vegetable merchant in Amritsar. Majority of commodity supply came from Pakistan was consumed in local market of Amritsar, traders said. “The quality of imported onion (from Pakistan) was inferior to Indian onion, resulting into getting less prices,” he said. Pakistani traders are exporting onions to India despite a drop in domestic production due to unprecedented floods and a surge in prices in markets across the country, traders said today. Prices of onions have maintained high levels due to crops being affected by the floods, especially in the southern Sindh province, where agricultural lands were devastated by heavy rains and swollen rivers during July-August this year. The exports began earlier this week after the price of onions registered a sharp rise in India.

About 100 trucks carrying thousands of tonnes of onions have been sent through the Wagah land border in Punjab and Khalil Bhatti, a leading exporter in Lahore, said exports to India are likely to continue till January 15.There is no specific agreement with Indian importers on the quantity of onions to be supplied by Pakistan and exporters in Lahore were filling orders as and when they are received from importers. “About 400 to 500 tonnes of onions are being sent across the border daily from Wagah at the rate of between Rs44 and Rs48 a kilogramme,”.

Due to the floods, onion production in Sindh alone registered a decline of 500,000 to 600,000 tonnes this season, traders at Karachi’s main vegetable market said. The southern province caters for most of Pakistan’s requirement of onions during the winter. Pakistan’s annual onion yield is estimated at five to six million tonnes.

Since exports to India began, onion prices in Pakistan’s retail markets surged from Rs60 a kg to Rs70 a kg. However, this is almost half the current price of onions in India. Exporters have also been buoyed by the Indian government’s decision to abolish a seven per cent custom duty on onion imports to provide relief to people hit hard by a steep rise in the price of onions.

This is the first time in a decade that India has imported onions from Pakistan and Pakistani exporters are hopeful of making good financial gains. Ironically, the Pakistan government was forced to allow the import of vegetables, including onions, from India earlier this year after the floods caused by unusually heavy monsoon rains devastated thousands of acres of agricultural land.

SUSPENSION OF ONION EXPORTS TILL JANUARY 15

The government announced suspension of onion exports till January 15 in a last-minute effort to cool prices of the poor man’s essential vegetable from the prevailing high of Rs. 60-70 a kg. In a twin strategy, while the farm cooperative major and regulating agency NAFED (National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation) and 12 other agencies have been directed to halt issuance of export clearance, the MEP (minimum export price) for onions has also been raised more than double from $ 525 a tonne to $1,200 with immediate effect.

As a result, even those onion exporters who have already secured NOCs (no objection certificates) from the regulating agencies but have not executed their export orders will not be able to do so below the increased price. “We have decided to voluntarily suspend issuing NOC to onion exporters till January 15 and have also raised the MEP to US$ 1,200 per tonne for those NOCs which are yet to be executed,” a NAFED official said after the decision to suspend exports was taken at an emergency meeting here. Within a couple of days, retail price of onions soared to Rs. 60-70 a kg across the country from an existing high of Rs. 35-40 a kg. While wholesalers have been attributing the earlier high prices to supply constraints owing to unseasonal rains in Maharashtra (especially Latur where the crop was impacted), Gujarat and southern States, the sudden surge in prices is owing to a sharp increase in exports, apart from various stakeholders holding back the produce from entering the market.

AGRICULTURE CO-OPERATIVE NAFED DEFERS ONION IMPORTS FROM PAKISTAN

Agriculture co-operative NAFED has said that it has deferred onion imports from Pakistan as the domestic prices have started softening. “NAFED defers plan to import onion as its prices have begun to soften in the domestic market,” NAFED chairman Bijender Singh told reporters in New Delhi. NAFED is the regulator for onion exports from the country.

NHRDF CONCERNED ON HIGH PRODUCTION COST

This is evident from the fact that way back in May this year, Nasik-based National Horticulture Research and Development Foundation (NHRDF) Additional Director Satish Bhonde had gone on record saying that although the country’s onion production this year was likely to touch a record 95 lakh tonnes, it may not result in a sharp fall in prices due to high investment costs involved.

In a clear indication that high yield would not mean lower prices, Mr. Bhonde had said: “Use of crop technology and irrigation have improved onion yields, though acreage remained at last year’s level of 5.5 lakh hectare…The wholesale prices of onions are unlikely to fall significantly because farmers are storing the crop in a big way. Also, higher production cost may not allow them to sell at lower rates.” According to NHRDF data, wholesale price in late May for onions were at Rs. 6-7 a kg at Lasalgaon in Maharashtra, Asia’s biggest onion market.

Onions have soared despite of the fact that India has three seasons for onion — kharif (winter), late kharif and rabi (summer).

THE DRAGON AND THE ELEPHANT SHOULD TANGO

“THE DRAGON AND THE ELEPHANT SHOULD TANGO,Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao suggested today.

Wen came up with this quip to emphasise the need for the two Asian giants, whose rivalry has been compared to that between the dragon (China) and elephant (India), to come closer.

Speaking to group of editors and scholars before leaving for Pakistan he said that India and China were partners in cooperation and not rivals.

Wen had warm words of appreciation for his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh describing him as a person “with an open and inclusive mind”.

The Chinese leader mentioned that the Cambridge University had brought out a publication containing speeches by him and Singh whose common theme was the importance of open and inclusive societies.

He distributed copies of that publication with his autograph to those present at the interaction.

Wen mentioned that the Indian Prime Minister had last year sent him a gift package of black tea and in return he had sent Chinese white tea. “That reminds me of how our two countries connect with each other.”

China to provide data of Sutlej river to India

China will provide India with real-time flood data of Sutlej river during monsoon, according to an agreement signed between the two countries.

Under the five year agreement, China will set up a special station in Tibet to monitor rainfall and flood to enable India get advanced warnings.

In turn, India will pay Rs 12 lakh per annum to China. The money will be used by Beijing to maintain the station, sources in the government said.

The flood data will be provided twice every day between June and October every year.

“Since we have five to six hydro electric power projects on the downstream Sutlej, the data will help us operate the projects in a safer environment,” a source said.

Floods in downstream Sutlej have been creating problems on the Indian side.

In July this year, India had renewed a similar agreement with China to get flood data of the Brahmaputra river. The agreement was signed in 2004.

Though China had been providing flood data of the Sutlej, the agreement will help streamline the system, especially during the monsoon season. New Delhi had been paying Rs 12 lakh per annum to China for data of the Brahmaputra.

A Short Case for Domain of Knowledge Administration Governance & HR Issues in Public Funded Academic Orgs Human Resource, Capacity Building and Ethics being practiced in Public Funded Academic Organizations

An Institution Blessed with All Possible Powers by Destiny – for – Humble Objective of turning Society in to a Value Based, Principled, Ethical besides Providing Knowledge and Skills to Them for Sustaining their Life and be a Law Abiding Citizens.

THE CREATION CALLED HUMAN IS ALWAYS CAPABLE OF PLAYING THE DEVILS ROLE

CASE: Human Resource, Capacity Building and Ethics being Practiced in Public Funded Academic Organizations of Repute : Perhaps Grooming place of Corrupt and Un Ethical Acts: None other Institution alone can Exercise the  vast amount of  Energy required to turn, whole of Working Population, of Any Nation in totality and all alone, on Unrighteous Path.

An individual faculty member of an esteemed academic institution has come to know by discovering some relevant information that a lot of unwanted activities are being executed in the institution she/he serves, and in process she/he was also made to suffer in manner significantly damaging the career of individual. If the same information is disclosed to executives, media or public, the situation may turn more damaging to the individual faculty member itself. The same may happen due to possibility that may be resultant of concerned individuals with the issue may deliberately force the administration by providing it with maligned or forged information, which may make administration believe and consequently  take it as a case of deliberate attempt to malign the image of the Institution. Certainly the act may manifest in causing some dent to image of Institution, but if the problem resolved, will save the institution from a certain death in near future, as the same concerns the important and vital component of the end product delivered by the organization. The success of the organization in future will be ensured by the same and that too, in an accelerated manner, due turning capable of delivering quality education and skill development, as per expectations of society. Till date the same faculty member has silently brought the same to the notice of concerned authorities but they have tuned deaf. Despite of having been asked by a prudent top executive of the Institution to clearly put the issue, so that same is resolved, the faculty member concerned has never initiated the issue, thinking that any transition may result in sufferings of its most vital stakeholders who happen to be the students. Thus, even without any application of external force (certainly the internal threats keep continuously being issued to cause a nervous breakdown) such act is being voluntarily adopted by her/him with a good intension of letting the organization achieve its task, even if it means, some material suffering to her/him in form of low wages getting paid to her/ him. The people, who happen to be in executive duty, despite of being aware, are not trying to correct the situation by themselves. If the same gets initiated by executives themselves, then the situation can be improved in an efficient manner and that too without creating any explosive or damaging situation. The situation is that nobody is attempting to act on the issue and is giving an impression to top executives of the Institution as everything very normal, maintained and routine.

1. Assuming that you happen to be the individual concerned, comment on situation as initiatives that you would like to initiate to control such issue.

2. Assuming that you happen to be the concerned executive, comment on situation as initiatives that you would like to initiate to control such issue.

THE ARRIVAL OF U. S. S. GEORGE WASHINGTON AIRCRAFT CARRIER IN YELLOW SEA HAS TRANSFORMED INTO A CONUNDRUM FOR CHINA

THE ARRIVAL OF U. S. S. GEORGE WASHINGTON AIRCRAFT CARRIER IN YELLOW SEA HAS TRANSFORMED INTO A CONUNDRUM FOR CHINA

Professor Saurabh Singh‘s comment on International Polity

Scholar of Domain of Knowledge Named Administrative Sciences


Dilemma of nature that may be dubbed as unique in its own kind, i.e,

?        TO SPEAK OR NOT TO SPEAK

ƒ       Should it protest angrily and aggravate ties with Washington, or

ƒ       quietly accept the presence of a key symbol of American military pre-eminence off Chinese shores

?        BACKGROUND

ƒ        The USS George Washington, accompanied by escort ships, is to take part in military drills with South Korea following North Korea’s shelling of a South Korean island.

ƒ        The Shelling on Tuesday is one of the most serious confrontations since the Korean War a half-century ago.

US George Washington - Nuclear Powered Aircraft Carrier

?           IT’S A SCENARIO WHICH CHINA HAS ALWAYS PREVENT

Only four months ago, Chinese officials and military officers shrilly warned Washington against sending a carrier into the Yellow Sea for an earlier set of exercises

Some said it would escalate tensions after the sinking of a South Korean navy ship blamed on North Korea.

Others went further, calling the carrier deployment a threat to Chinese security.

?           CHINESE BELIEVE THAT THEIR OBJECTIONS WORKED

Although Washington never said why, no aircraft carrier sailed into the strategic Yellow Sea, which laps at several Chinese provinces and the Korean peninsula.

This time around, with outrage high over the shelling, the U.S. raising pressure on China to rein in wayward ally North Korea

a Chinese-American summit in the works, the warship is coming, and Beijing is muffling any criticisms.

PROFESSOR MICHAEL RICHARDSON, Commented..,

[A visiting research fellow at Singapore’s Institute of Southeast Asian Studies]

“I think China must be quietly cursing North Korea under their breath.”

“The Scenario can very well be taken as a of the adverse Outcome of North Korea’s most recent belligerence.

Belligerence by NORTH KOREA has transformed in “HOT POTATO IN THE MOUTH SCENARIO***” for CHINA

North Korea fire made South Korea two Marrieners

North Korea fire made South Korea two Marrieners

China, as of now can neither “open the mouth nor Keep it shut”; as regards to deployment of U.S. Naval Ship George Washington, which happens to be a Nuclear Powered Aircraft Carrier, in the East China Sea,”

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman reiterated Beijing’s long-standing insistence that foreign navies obtain its permission before undertaking military operations inside China’s exclusive economic zone, which extends 230 miles (370 kilometers) from its coast.

The statement also reiterated calls for calm and restraint but did not directly mention the Yellow Sea or the planned exercises.

Chinese Submarines Fleet

Global Times, a nationalistic tabloid, in an editorial expressed its worries by stating  that a U.S. carrier would upset the delicate balance in the Yellow Sea, [Ignoring the fact that the George Washington has taken part in drills in those waters numerous times before.]

North Korea, not ready to come out of its belligerence, has warned that the U.S.-South Korean military drills were pushing the peninsula to the “brink of war.”

 

?        A MORE PASSIVE APPROACH SEEMS A BETTER TRADE OFF FOR CHINA

Its credibility with Washington and trading partner South Korea would get a boost

Put North Korea on notice that its actions are wearing China’s patience thin

PROFESSOR ZHU FENG, Director Peking University’s Center for International and Strategic Studies opined:

“The Chinese government is trying to send Pyongyang a signal that, if they continue to be so provocative, China will just leave the North Koreans to themselves.” He added further that “What China should do is make the North Koreans feel that they have got to stop messing around.”

 

CHINA FEARS RESORTING TO TOUGHER ACTIONS AGAINST NORTH KOREA

Chinese administration is of the view that cutting the food and fuel assistance Beijing supplies — would destabilize the isolated North Korean dictatorship, possibly leading to its collapse.

George Washington Nuclear Powered

The adverse outcome as a resultant of tougher actions against North Korea may lead to flood of refugees into northeastern China and result in a pro-U.S. government taking over in the North in very recent future.

China may also be mindful of its relations with key trading partner Seoul, strained by Beijing’s reluctance to condemn Pyongyang over the March ship sinking. Raising a clamor over upcoming drills in the wake of a national tragedy would only further alienate South Korea.

 

CHINA, PERHAPS ARE INTELLEGENT ENOUGH &, WOULD BE AWARE OF THE ACTS THAT MAY MANISFEST, IF MISTAKE AT ANY LEVEL IS COMMITTED, IN FORM OF BENEFICIAL OR  HARMFUL  TO THE INTERESTS OF CHINA.

NEW ERA ON HORIZON TO HAVE RENEWED EXCHANGES WITH WASHINGTON

  • President Hu Jintao is scheduled to make a state visit to Washington in January hosted by President Barack Obama — replete with a state dinner and other formal trappings that President George W. Bush never gave the Chinese leader.

 

  • Before that Gen. Ma Xiaotian, one of the commanders who objected to the George Washington’s deployment earlier this year, is due in Washington for defense consultations. Those talks are another step in restoring tattered defense ties, a key goal of the Obama administration.

 

Thus CHINA at MOMENT could pray alone and practice Restraints on its Defense Policy and Diplomatic Offices.

CHINESE AIRCRAFT CARRIER SHIP STILL IN PROCESS

CHINA could expect some luck also; as it may land up with few sounds reasons to ask USA to pull out it’s Aircraft carrier George Washington far away from Yellow Sea; as it may be gifted some information in the way of wiki leaks.

Whereas USA and South Korea, as on the moment are planning an artillery exercise  as part of the Whole Exercise with USA troops; the North Korea is busy arranging its array of  missiles, blaming that USA awr exercise has put the Korean Peninsula at the brink of War.

 

————-So better wait and watch; even minor laps, on the part of any party may change or dictate; the whole course of global environment in a manner as to alter the path and orbit other than current; and may be to an unthought-of manner or unimagined or unanalyzed till date. The new equation and chapter may take birth to substitute the present equation in International Relations, Trade, Economy & polity.

 

The discussion in normal context is stopping here for the time being and will be initiated further if set and patterns of variables change due to any reason.

CHINA OTHER VIEW

 

INDIA

I would love to add, before closing, that India till now is required to be on alert but not worried. India has enough might to foil any endeavor having malignancy by any neighboring nation or any lunatic national head. To defend itself, the Mother Nature by itself, has gifted India a number of Cover. Added to that resource gifted to India
