Before returning to New Delhi recently after attending the annual IMF-World fall meeting, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman provided an upbeat perspective on the Indian economy.

Security is an integral concept (Column: Spy's Eye)
There is no halfway deal in Security. Management of security works on the principle of completeness. You cannot feel satisfied if your house is half secure or if only a part of it is fully secure. The house as an integral unit is either fully secure or is insecure. The framework of security must provide for an ongoing protection of the three assets of the safeguarded entity -- physical, human and information-related. Since security by definition is protection against a 'covert' threat -- from an 'invisible' enemy -- information on that must come in time to allow for preventive action.

Prophet Mohammad at Hudaybiyyah: Lesson for Muslims coping with Ayodhya? (Comment)
Should the Supreme Court verdict enable the building of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Muslim fears about the security of mosques in Kashi and the Idgah in Mathura would appear to have been taken care of by the Places of Worship Act of 1991. The Act spells out that all places of worship "except Ayodhya" will be maintained and respected as they were in 1947. Assurances, however, have value only when there is rule of law which has been a retreating value in recent years. In these circumstances, what is the wise course for the Muslims to adopt when the Ayodhya verdict is delivered before November 17?

India-China equation-post Mamallapuram (Column: Spy's Eye)

The scale of welcome accorded to the Chinese President reflected the cultural content of Indian hospitality that would not go unnoticed in terms of the message of willingness to work for mutually beneficial relationship that it put out for the visiting dignitary.

What can India learn from China's 70 years of economic growth? (Column)
China celebrated the 70th anniversary of becoming a communist republic with much fanfare. Back in October 1949, when China was adopting the communist model of societal organisation, India was framing its constitution. Less than four months later, India was a democratic republic. The two nations in their current identities were, thus, born out of the ashes of the colonial world around the same time but adopted a contrasting system of economic and social development. After seventy years, the two nations stand at very different levels of development in terms of their economic, military and technological progress. China's prowess on these fronts is incomparable to that of India.

Making sense of Indian 'Haute Couture' (Also read on IANSlife)
Sep 9 (IANS) The past decade has seen a gradual shift from "wedding wear and trousseau," which masqueraded as "Indian couture," to "haute couture" as the world knows it. Among the voluminous and heavily embroidered lehengas, there are also silhouettes and styles that go beyond the Indian trousseau. With the millennial taste biased toward a utilitarian sensibility, the couture has been stripped down to the basics ? wearable, customised and timeless.

The dynamics of India's growth recession (Column: Active Voice)
The crisis brewing within the Indian economy has gained unanimous acceptance by now. Even the latest annual report of the RBI for the fiscal year 2018-19 (or FY19) confirmed that the Indian economy has indeed hit a rough patch. The GDP growth rate of the economy has slipped to 5 per cent in the first quarter of FY20, the lowest in over six years. This is an indication of tougher times ahead. Be it the recent collapse of the automobile sector or the rising number of non-performing assets (NPAs), sluggish consumer demand or failing manufacturing sector; all have a hand in this deceleration of growth rate.
