Dear Enlightened Readers,

It has been an interesting week with lots of “firsts” being recorded:

•  Barack Obama was the first US President to have been the Chief Guest at the Indian Republic Day Parade on 26th January;

•  His 3-day visit to India marked many “firsts” including significant break-through in long-pending civil-nuclear deal. New York Times described it a success;

•  Greece got a new government;

•  Saudi Arabia’s King no more, his son takes over;

•  Historic US-Cuba talks take off;

•  The logjam over Constitution making continued in Nepal;

•  ISIS volunteers in India crossed 1000;

•  Australian women are joining ISIS;

•  January 24 observed as the Girl Child day;

•  A woman Bishop consecrated for the first time in Britain;

•  Boko Haram disturbing regional peace; The Jaipur Literary Festival (January22-26) was a grand success;

•  The 66th Republic Day in India was dedicated to “Nari Shakti” and for the first time a lady officer commanded the parade;

•  An army Col. M N Rai, honoured for bravery – Yudh Seva Medal on 26th Jan martyred on 27th January;

•  The best known cartoonist, of “You Said It” and “Common Man”, R K Laxman, bade good bye on January 26, 2015. Our most respectful “pronams” to him.

Yours sincerely,

D.C. Nath
