    ISIS; the new name of terror, raging massacre and havoc in both Syria and Iraq. Most of us don’t know exactly when it erupted and spread all over Iraq. Some western political analysts believe that ISIS is after child of 2003 American- British invasion of Iraq. The present Deputy Prime Minister of UK, a Liberal Democrat leader, Nick Clegg holds the ex-prime minister Tony Blair responsible of the insanity prevailing in Iraq ever since. The Liberal Democrats voted against the war on Iraq then. Mr. Clegg went as far as saying that reasons for the invasion are legally dubious. He added that…

    In today’s world of commercialized hubs including educational institutes, the culture of the society we live in is majorly a sum of borrowed culture’s be it from the West or our neighbour’s in the East. Lets say a decade or two previously, the idea of water carnivals, beach parties, rang, festivals such as the Spanish ‘la tomatina’ and the like could not have been fathomed of being conducted by educational institutes. Lets come to the present day-now. As soon as students are in their final year of Intermediate or Advanced Levels, they are on the lookout to being…
  • How Islam Came To The Indian Sub-Continent

    Sameer
    29 Aug 2014 | 12:03 pm
    Arabs used to travel to the Indian subcontinent even before the advent of Islam and the Prophet (SAW).  Traders would take their goods by sea to the west coast of present day India to sell their spices, gold, and African goods. This contact between the Arabs and the shores of India naturally brought this budding religion to India. The First Foothold The major incursion of Islam into the Indian subcontinent happened during the times of the Umayyads. One may ask what prompted such a military incursion by the Umayyads when they already had fronts open towards the west. The basic reason was that…
  • Saeed Anwar – the Magical Opener

    29 Aug 2014 | 11:53 am
    One of my favorite memories growing up is the magnificent century that Saeed Anwar scored against India during the 1997 Independence Cup Semifinal. 22 stylish fours and 5 humongous sixes helped him score a near double century (194 off 146) in Chennai. At that time he had set a record for the highest individual score in ODIs overtaking the great Vivian Richard’s 189. His demolition of Indian bowlers Venkatesh Prasad and Anil Kumble made it even more special …. mostly because they were Indians. The Magical Touch It was not just this innings that defined Saeed Anwar. He is known for his…
