What is NSG and why is everybody talking about it?

What is NSG?

If you’re not living under a rock, then the word NSG will sound vaguely familiar. NSG is an acronym for Nuclear Suppliers Group which boasts a membership of 48 nations including The United States of America, United Kingdom, France and China. It was formed in response to India’s testing of a nuclear weapon and to control the supply of materials and technology needed to build weapons of mass destruction.

2 minute read : The history of Politics in Tamil Nadu

“Power does not corrupt people. People corrupt power.”

It began with the establishment of South Indian Welfare Association in 1916, whose name was changed to  Dravidar Kazhagam in 1944 by ‘Periyar’ E.V Ramasami. The party was split in two in 1949 due to differences between its leaders – E.V Ramasami and C.N Annadurai. The latter left the party to form the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam(DMK), who was later succeeded by M. Karunanidhi. Both parties lobbied hard between 1940’s and 1960’s to form an independent state called Dravida Nadu which failed to find supporters outside of Tamil Nadu. The movement further lost its sheen when the States Reorganisation Act, 1956, that divided the states based on languages was passed.

‘Congress Mukt Bharat’ : A Near Reality?

“Satta ka khel toh chalega, sarkarein aayengi jaayengi, partiyan banegi bigdegi, magar ye desh rehna chahhiye, is desh ka loktantra amar rehna chahiye.”

                                                                                                                       

The glorious democracy of India is such that there are over 1700 political parties in this country.  Rise and fall of political parties are part of a democratic setting and is to be cherished. A democratic government is always of the people, by the people and for the people. But politics against the nation will not be tolerated and the current abysmal position of once India’s largest party, the Indian National Congress, is a prime example of that.

Journalism Hits A New Low

“A free press is not only a right, and not only a privilege, but an organic necessity in a great society.”

Time and again the ‘free and fair’ media has found itself standing in the dock, for its shameless breach of ethics and morals of journalism. The 2010 Nira Radia tapes shook the nation while exposing the lies and deceit of a game often played behind closed doors. A prominent figure in the media, Barkha Dutt, was accused of lobbying between the DMK and Congress for installing the then telecom minister(now accused) – A Raja.

UDAY : Is the Sun finally rising on India’s ailing energy sector?

‘The weakest link in the channel through which electricity reaches our homes are the state owned distribution companies (discoms).’

With a total power production of 1048.6 BU, Indian power sector witnessed the steepest rise in its history at 8.4% (2014-15) led by an increase in thermal power generation of 10.8%. This rise can be attributed to the recently concluded coal e-auctions by the central government which also earned revenues of over 3.35 lakh crores to coal bearing states. Having said so, we must also be aware that the same year also witnessed the lowest Plant Load Factor in history, with power generation units producing at a mere 65% of their capacity.
