Pakistanis are discussing Modi’s beard as if it’s a matter of national security

PM Modi speaking during a webinar on privatisation by the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management on 24 Februray 2021 | Twitter/ANI Text Size: A- A+ One year of Covid-19 and a lifetime of conspiracy theories. No, I have no intention to bore you to sleep with theories about coronavirus or the vaccine with 5G microchips. Though I still don’t get why’d they need Covid chips to track us when our sim cards easily serve the purpose? Leave that for another week, there are more pressing concerns. More illuminating than the Mars landing is the thing happening with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s beard. Or rather the conspiracies, curiosity and covert designs shrouding his beard.

To avoid Yes Bank-like shocks, let differentiated banking licenses address financing gaps

Representational image | Photo: Dhiraj Singh | Bloomberg Text Size: A- A+ With less than 2,000 banks with deposit-taking permissions serving a population of 1.3 billion people, India has far too few banks to cater to its needs. While there is a need to build the periphery through non-bank money transfer and lending services providers, there is also a need to build strong banking institutions that can offer basic services such as retail deposit-taking universally and, as we wait for bond markets to pick up the slack, the ability to finance the corporate sector and the much-needed infrastructure sector. Principally driven by the enormous ‘depositor penalty’ that is imposed by the larger banks, which translates i...

NZ vs AUS 2nd T20I: New Zealand edge Australia by four runs

Martin Guptill made a spectacular return to form, hitting eight sixes in a 50-ball innings of 97 which lifted New Zealand to a thrilling win over Australia by four runs in the second Twenty20 cricket international.

Australia went into the last over in a strong position, needing 15 runs with four wickets in hand. New Zealand turned to Jimmy Neesham, who hadn’t bowled in the match, and it proved an inspired decision; he removed Sam...

Modi stadium part of Sardar complex: BJP | India News – Times of India

AHMEDABAD: President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday laid the foundation stone of the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Sports Enclave, an ambitious project to come up over an area of 215 acres along the Sabarmati riverfront at Motera in Ahmedabad and digitally inaugurated the world’s largest cricket stadium, which was given a new identity and will be called Narendra Modi Stadium in the city. The stadium , popularly called ‘Motera stadium’, was named Sardar Patel Stadium when it hosted the ‘Namaste Trump’ event in 2019.

Comprehensive immigration reform needed to retain talent in US: American tech industry to lawmakers

Comprehensive immigration reform is important not only to attract the best global talent but also to retain them who are already in the US but stuck in the green card backlog, representatives of the American tech industry, including Microsoft, have told lawmakers. A Green Card, known officially as a Permanent Resident Card, is a document issued to immigrants to the US as evidence that the bearer has been granted the privilege of residing permanently. “One of the reasons that comprehensive immigration reform is so important is we have so many other extraordinarily talented people here, including working in the tech sector, who need the added certainty. They’re either stuck in a green card backlog because they came here from India,” Microsoft president Brad L Smith told membe...
