Bharat Mala Project

Bharat Mala project of India was in news in the fourth week of June 2015 as NHAI (National Highways Authority of India) has started inviting bids for preparing the Detailed Project Reports (DRPs) of over 3500km of roads along the border and coast lines.

Bharat Mala project is an ambitious plan of Union Ministry of Roads Transport & Highways which contemplated building about 5000 km of road networks in the country and link border and coastal areas with road network. The overall investment is estimated around 50000 crore rupees. The entire network will stretch across 15 states with Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu & Puducherry, Uttarakhand, Odisha, Gujarat and Punjab getting substantial portion of this network.

Further, under the project it has been assumed that in each stretch 80 percent of road shall be two-lane with paved shoulders (two and half lanes) and 20 percent of length may be four-laned. Bharat Mala probably takes a cue from Sagar Mala, the project to construct a string of ports in the Indian Ocean to protect maritime interests and Golden Quadrilateral, the highway network connecting Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata.

Malwani area

The incident has led to suspension of eight police officials and arrest of five persons so far. This incident was the second biggest hooch tragedy in over a decade in the State. Earlier in 2004, about 87 people were killed after consuming spurious liquor in suburban Vikhroli.

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has ordered an inquiry into the Malwani hooch tragedy.

This was revealed by latest data released by Swiss National Bank (SNB), the central bank of Switzerland, in the fourth week of June 2015.

As per the data, India now accounts for a meagre 0.123 per cent of the total global wealth worth 1.6 trillion US dollars in Switzerland’s banking system. Indians’ money in Swiss banks declined by over 10 percent to about 1.8 billion Swiss francs (1.98 billion US dollars or 12615 crore rupees) in 2014.

This is the second lowest level of Indian money in Swiss banks, after an increase of over 40 percent in 2013. Further, the decline comes amid an enhanced clampdown against the famed secrecy wall of Switzerland’s banking system.

The big banks accounted for 1.48 billion Swiss francs of Indians’ money which was up from 1.36 billion Swiss francs in 2013.

Other highlights

  • The countries to top the list are the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (US) who holds the largest shares of the foreign clients’ money with Swiss banks.
  • The UK and the US are followed by West Indies, Guernsey, Germany, Bahamas, Luxembourg, France, Jersey and Hong Kong
  • The UK alone accounts for 22 percent of total global funds in Swiss banks.
  • Top four nation together account for over half of all foreigners’ wealth in Swiss banks, which rose to 1.47 trillion Swiss francs (about 102 lakh crore rupees or 1.6 trillion US dollars) in 2014.
  • Just two big banks, UBS and Credit Suisse, account for nearly two-third of the total money kept by foreigners in Swiss banks while in case of Indians it is even higher at about 82 percent.
  • Pakistan in the list is placed at 73rd position with their share almost doubling to 472 million Swiss francs. This accounts for 36 percent of the total amount of 1.3 billion Swiss francs held in all Swiss banks by their clients.

Beyond Doubt: A Dossier on Gandhi’s Assassination

The book Beyond Doubt: A Dossier on Gandhi’s Assassination was in news in the third week of June 2015. It was compiled and introduced by Indian civil rights activist Teesta Setalvad and published by Tulika Books.

It is a collection of archival documents of the government and translation of works in Marathi, Guajarati and Hindi related to assassination of Mahatma Gandhi on 30 June 1948. In the book, the author tried to de-construct the ideology responsible for the killing.

As per the author, the assassination was the first act of terror committed in independent India. Further, it was also a statement of Hindu right wing asserting their ideology against idea of composite culture and inclusive nationhood advocated by the Mahatma.

However, as per Teesta Setalvad, the subsequent events including the adoption of the Indian Constitution on 26 November 1949, in which fundamental rights were given primary importance, defeated the ideology of the assassin-Nathuram Godse. In the book, the author also covered the controversy that erupted in July 2014 over the destruction of classified files by the Union Government related to Gandhi’s assassination.

The new results were published on 18 June 2015 in concurrent studies in Cell and Science. The research was led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) and The Rockefeller University.

The immunogen eOD-GT8 60mer, essentially a protein nanoparticle, has the potential to inform immunization strategies against AIDS for humans.

In their study, scientists tested the immunogen eOD-GT8 60mer, which was developed in the Schief lab and tested in mouse models engineered by the Nemazee lab to produce human-like antibodies. The immunogen was designed to mimic a critical part of the HIV envelope protein and to bind and activate B cells to produce antibodies needed to fight HIV. The results showed that immunization with eOD-GT8 60mer produced antibody “precursors” with some of the traits necessary to recognize and block HIV infection, suggesting that eOD-GT8 60mer could be a good first step in a series of immunizations against HIV. The researchers are now investigating other immunogens that could work in conjunction with eOD-GT8 60mer.

Meanwhile in an another study published in journal Science by researchers from Amsterdam University, Weill Cornell Medical College, TSRI and IAVI, showed engineered immunogens also triggered broadly neutralizing antibody immune responses in rabbit and monkey models. The researchers’ long-term goal is to design a vaccine that prompts the body to produce antibodies that bind to HIV and prevent infection by many if not all of the virus’ variants.

Why the findings are important?

So far the effort to develop a vaccine against HIV to elicit antibodies that can effectively fight off different strains of the fast and extensively mutating virus has been unsuccessful. The reason is HIV mutates more rapidly into new strains than most other viruses and has an unprecedented ability to evade detection by the immune system.

According to the researchers, a successful AIDS vaccine needs to comprise of a series of related, but slightly different immunogens to train the body to produce broadly neutralizing antibodies against HIV. It is different from the traditional HIV vaccination schemes, in which a person was exposed to the same immunogen multiple times.

It was written by Dr Anna Suvorova of Russia. The book is devoted to the life and work of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto (1953-2007). She was the first female head of government in a Muslim state.

The book is based on Bhutto’s own books, articles and speeches and on the author’s interviews with her close friends and colleagues.

It makes a study of emergence of Bhutto as a political leader, her journey and her assassination by terrorists. It was published by Oxford University Press. It is intended for a wide readership.

Dr Anna Suvorov, Professor of Indo-Islamic Culture, is currently Head of Department of Asian Literatures at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, Russia. For her contribution to the research of Pakistani literature and cultural heritage she was conferred with one of the highest state awards of Pakistan — Sitara-i-Imtiaz.
