SEZs in China and India
D BASU: The dispute of the farmers against the oppressive governments in Singur, Nandigram, Orissa, Chratisgrah and Narmada Valley in India is not a war between industry and agriculture or between progress and conservatism but between basic human rights and a government determined to create a pure capitalistic heaven by taking over poor people’s only possession of a little land and a home......

Mussaraf’s Proposal and India"s Options
D BASU: If Pakistan insists that it has the right to absorb the rest of the Kashmir in one way or another because of religion and if India insists on the ‘line of control’ and secularism, there is no common ground where the two sides will meet.
