We have been working within the capitalist system and as such private capital has to be used. Socialism is a far cry. Socialism is our political agenda and it was mentioned in our party document but capitalism will continue to be the compulsion for the future.                                                                                                                                                                                                                – Jyoti Basu
Et tu Brutus.

Urdu has many Persian words and similarly Hindi-speaking people use certain Urdu words frequently during their conversation. Therefore, the government has decided to revise the course with more simplified version. The words will be replaced with some commonly used English and Hindi words.
– A senior official in the ministry of education
Agreed! A welcome move indeed. Hope, similar exercise will be done for Hindi language also and all uncommon Sanskrit words will be removed at the earliest and further Sanskritisation will be made a taboo for good.

China will not tolerate Taiwan independence and never allow anyone to separate the island from Chinese territory in any name or any way. Washington should stop arms sales to Taiwan and sever military links with the island.
– General Guo Boxiong, Vice Chairman of the Central  Military Commission of China
Will such tough talking alone deter the USA to shun its world policeman role?
