Is Pakistan Finally Cracking Down on Terror Groups?

By Lisa Curtis

If the story is accurate, it would mark a fundamental shift in Pakistan’s approach to fighting terrorism, but could also presage increased civil-military tensions in the country....more More

Ecuador warms up to US; Cuts Assange internet access

QUITO (Ecuador): WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is finding himself in open conflict with his Ecuadorean protectors as the group’s latest dump targeting Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign runs afoul of the South American government’s goal of warming up to Washington.

The story of watermelons

I am from the village of Parra in Goa, hence we are called Parrikars. My village is famous for its watermelons. When I was a child, the farmers would organise a watermelon-eating contest at the end of the harvest season in May. All the kids would be invited to eat as many watermelons as they wanted.
