The nature of the Civil War was ambush and insurgency by the Lankan Tigers of Tamil Eelam against the Government of Sri Lanka. This "war" was largely confined to the northern and eastern fringes of the country and lasted for a quarter of a century. The lTTE was branded as a Terrorist Organization by many countrues and yet it was able to carry on for such a long time. India had ill-advisedly sent a Peace Keeing force there which had to retreat in disgrace. The conflict had arisen due to the atrocities of the Lankan Army against civilians and had tacit support from many organizations. Finally the Sri Lankan government under a strong premier was able to decimate this nuisance.

It is the mixed form of socialistic and capitalistic economy. Certain economic activities are fully owned and controlled by the government but all the economic activities are not owned by the Government. Private and public sector both co-exist in the economy. We have adopted mixed economy in India. All the basic industries such as railways, post and telegraph, defence production, atomic energy etc. are in the public sector. Industries dealing with consumer goods are in the private sector. Ours is a welfare state, so the government can nationalise any industry or own any company in the public interest. Mixed economy reduces inequality of income. Due to increased expenditure on public utilities and services, economic benefits to their poor pe9ple are provided. Advantages Mixed economy has got the following advantages: Rapid economic development Inmixed economy both private and public sectors work side by side. The combined efforts lead to rapid economic development. The economic resources of the economy are used efficiently. Wastages of resources are minimised. Lesser inequality of income: Right to own property is granted. Law of inheritance is also applied, so certain members of society grow richer and richer. Public sector in the economy tries to provide economic facility to the general masses. It reduces inequality of income. Balanced regional growth: The planning commission of the country makes policies for the development!"of every region of the economy. The government tries to develop all regions and every section of population. Freedom to own private property: Individuals are free to acquire property and retain in their own names, so the initiative to work more and earn more is there. It helps in the rapid development of the economy in the field of agriculture, industry and other services. Planned development: The planing commission is empowered to make effective plans for the development of the economy. We, in India, have also adopted planned developmental economy and introduced five year plans. Public interest: The public sector looks into the interest of the general public. The government under this economy is said to be welfare state. It introduces social insurance schemes, incurs expenditure and manages economy in the interest of general masses of the country. Disadvantages Inspite of the above advantages, the mixed economy suffers from the fol lowing weaknesses: Fear of nationalisation: Private and public sector coexists. The government has the power to nationalise and own any industry, so private sector remains under a psychological fear that their industry may be nationalised or taken over in the public interest. Inequality of income: Inspite of all the efforts of the government to bring equality, rich people grow richer and the inequality prevails. Economic resources economic developments are concentrated with certain big industries. Corruption: Corruption is the common feature of mixed economy. Black-marketing, profiteering, dishonest dealings and corruption is seen both at higher and lower levels.

During the period that JL Nehru was the PM of India, there was an intense rivalry between USA and USSR over the hegemony of the nations of the world and the world that mattered was divided into two Power Blocks-Communist and Non-Communist.

Russia was a big provider at that that time of Capital Equipment for the steel plants etc and Military hardware like the MIG planes to India. USA was a bit distant and though they were a democracy like India,  Indian government thought it practical and wise to form a new No-Aligned block so that none of the Super Powers take offence for not joining them. The first meeting took place in Indonesia and India and Egypt were the champions of the cause. With the end of USSR, this Non-Aligned Movement has lost its relevance today.

D Mukherjee

The Association of South East Asian Nations or ASEAN is aimed at promoting regional collaboration and its role is yet to pick up as such. However there is great potential and with the right patronage, participation and perspective by leaders like Modi and others this is sure to flourish.

The economic situation which exists in the developing world today is the result of the relationship between the modern, and developing nations of the world. Modernized nations benefited from this relationship because it gave them access to natural resources. However, because of this relationship, many developing nations now suffer from severe problems. These nations are attempting to change the situation in which they struggle. A political cartoon I have recently seen illustrated the economic relationship between the industrialized world and the developing world. It shows that the industrial nations, The United States and Europe, are located in the northern hemisphere. On the other hand, most of the developing world, Central and South America and Africa, are found in the southern hemisphere. The well-fed, well-dressed individual holding the industrialized world indicates that the modernized nations of the world are prosperous, and have a high standard of living. The skinny, poorly dressed individual holding the developing world indicates that the developing nations of the world are not prosperous, and have a lower standard of living than do industrialized nations. Both individuals are supporting each other in such a way that if one is removed, the other will fall. Without resources to use, the industry would not be able to maintain its existence. Likewise, without a market for their resources, or the products of industry, the developing world would not be able to maintain its existence. Two current problems which exist in the developing world today are political instability and rapid urbanization. Political instability causes economic problems in places such as Africa, and South America, where many governments are being overthrown. When a government is inconsistent, a tax system cannot be established and revenue canâ??t be collected. If a government doesnâ??t receive revenue, it cannot provide sanitation, or health care, and cannot build or repair roads or buildings. Also, political instability can result in the control of a nation. The second problem which exists in the developing world today is rapid urbanization. Rapid urbanization can be defined as the sudden growth in city population. It results in problems such as congested streets and poverty. For example, when people flock to the city to find jobs, not all of them are able to find work, these people remain unemployed. Those who manage to find work, face long hours and low pay. With so many people there is a shortage of food, housing, and healthcare. Also, sanitation is poor if there is any at all, and the water is contaminated because of the sewage running through it. This is why political instability and rapid urbanization cause problems in the developing world today. Nations within the developing sections of the world have attempted to improve their situation in many ways. For example, these developing nations want to promote economic diversity and education. Economic diversity can be defined as producing various kinds of crops and goods so that the nation is not dependent on a single export. By promoting education, governments set up schools to train students in the skills needed in a modern industrial economy, therefore creating more skilled workers for jobs in the management field as opposed to labor. The examples of economic diversity and education are ways in which nations within the developing world have attempted to change their situations. In conclusion, the economic situation which exists in the developing world today is dependence on the industrialized world. They are dependent because they need a market for their resources and the products of industry. This situation contributed to problems such as political instability, and rapid urbanization. Developing nations are attempting to change these situations through the promotion of economic diversity, and education.

The United States seeks to build a positive, cooperative, and comprehensive relationship with China by expanding areas of cooperation and addressing areas of disagreement, such as human rights and cyber-security. The United States welcomes a strong, peaceful, and prosperous China playing a greater role in world affairs and seeks to advance practical cooperation with China. There are four annual dialogues held between the U.S. and China; the Diplomatic and Security Dialogue, the Comprehensive Economic Dialogue, the Law Enforcement and Cybersecurity Dialogue, and the Social and Cultural Issues Dialogue all serve as a unique platform to promote bilateral understanding, expand consensus, discuss differences, build mutual trust, and increase cooperation. The strategic track of the S&ED has produced benefits for both countries through a wide range of joint projects and initiatives and expanded avenues for addressing common regional and global challenges such as proliferation concerns in Iran and North Korea, tensions between Sudan and South Sudan, climate change, environmental protection, and energy security. The United States has emphasized the need to enhance bilateral trust through increased high-level exchanges, formal dialogues, and expanded people-to-people ties. U.S. Assistance to China: U.S. assistance programs in China focus on four principal areas: supporting efforts on environmental protection and climate-change mitigation; advancing the rule of law and human rights; assisting Tibetan communities, and addressing the threat of pandemic diseases. U.S. support for transparency and governance crosses these sectors, supporting the development of environmental law, as well as a free, fair, and accessible justice system. Programs in each of these areas are targeted and directly address U.S. interests such as limiting the transmission of avian influenza, HIV/AIDS, and other diseases that pose threats to global security. Furthermore, such programs have been expanded with the addition of local Chinese resources, Programs in Tibetan areas of China support activities that preserve the distinct Tibetan culture and promote sustainable development and environmental conservation. Bilateral Economic Relations: The U.S. approach to its economic relations with China has two main elements: integrating China into the global, rules-based economic and trading system and expanding U.S. exporters' and investors' access to the Chinese market. Two-way trade between China and the United States has grown from $33 billion in 1992 to over $648 billion in goods and services in 2016. China is currently the third largest export market for U.S. goods (after Canada and Mexico), and the United States is China's largest export market. The stock of U.S. foreign direct investment (FDI) in China was $75 billion in 2015, up from $54 billion in 2012, and remained primarily in the manufacturing sector. During the July 2017 meeting of the U.S.-China Comprehensive Economic Dialogue, the two countries discussed measures to expand opportunities for U.S. firms in China and made progress on important issues including credit ratings, bond clearing, electronic payments, commercial banking, and liquefied natural gas. For the first time since 2003, China allowed for imports of American beef. China's Membership in International Organizations: The People's Republic of China assumed the China seat at the United Nations in 1971, replacing Taiwan, and is a permanent member of the UN Security Council. Over the years, China has become increasingly active in multilateral organizations, particularly the United Nations. China and the United States work closely with the international community to address threats to global security, including North Korea and Iran's nuclear programs.

Distinguish between migrants and refugees. Why are both of them considered a new source of threat to security?

Briefly, a refugee is the person who has fled his or her country to escape war or persecution and can prove it.

Briefly, a refugee is the person who has fled his or her country to escape war or persecution and can prove it. The 1951 Refugee Convention, negotiated after World War II, defines a refugee as a person who, owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality, and is unable to, or owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country. Among those crossing the Mediterranean in the first half of 2015, the greatest numbers came from Syria, Afghanistan or Eritrea. Syrians are widely presumed to be refugees because of the civil war there, according to the United Nations refugee agency. Many Afghans have been able to make the case that they are fleeing conflict, the agency added, and Eritreans can generally argue that they would face political persecution at home in Eritrea, which is ruled by one of the world's most repressive regimes. Anyone moving from one country to another is considered a migrant unless he or she is specifically fleeing war or persecution. Migrants may be fleeing dire poverty, or maybe well-off and merely seeking better opportunities, or maybe migrating to join relatives who have gone before them. There is an emerging debate about whether migrants fleeing their homes because of the effects of climate change the desertification of the Sahel region, for example, or the sinking of coastal islands in Bangladesh ought to be reclassified as refugees. Q. Are migrants treated differently from refugees? A. Countries are free to deport migrants who arrive without legal papers, which they cannot do with refugees under the 1951 convention. So it is not surprising that many politicians in Europe prefer to refer to everyone fleeing to the continent as migrants.
