Jaishankar an opportunity to engage Afghanistan which is at a decisive moment in its political evolution Related News Prime Minister Narendra Modi has had good reasons to frame Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar’s visit to Pakistan as part of a “Saarc yatra” Having suspended talks with Islamabad last August the government needed a diplomatic device to renew the engagement with Pakistan The appointment of a new foreign secretary and the tradition of India’s top diplomat beginning his or her tenure by travelling first to neighbouring capitals have provided a useful setting to make a fresh start with Pakistan The Saarc yatra also gives Jaishankar an opportunity to engage Afghanistan which is at a decisive moment in its political evolution since the ouster of the Taliban by the American forces at the end of 2001 For centuries now developments on India’s northwestern frontiers have decisively influenced the security environment of the large territorial entities in the subcontinent built around the Ganga and Yamuna That geopolitical logic has held true for the Mughal Empire the British Raj and independent India While there are many bilateral issues that will figure prominently in Jaishankar’s talks with Islamabad and Kabul the foreign secretary is acutely conscious of the new regional dynamic shaping India’s relations with Pakistan and Afghanistan The nature of the turbulence on India’s northwestern frontiers today is comparable to the developments in 1979-80 including the Islamic Revolution in Iran the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan and the promotion of a jihad against the Moscow-backed regime in Kabul by America Saudi Arabia and Pakistan Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi sought to respond to the new dynamic by diversifying India’s great power relations away from Moscow strengthening ties with America normalising relations with China which had just come out of the Cultural Revolution reaching out to Saudi Arabia and above all seeking improved ties with Pakistan India’s adaptation however was too weak and tentative to make an impact on the regional security environment For India’s relative weight in the region had steadily declined over the preceding decades There was considerable internal resistance to the new diplomatic initiatives that prevented taking them to the logical conclusion As a result by the end of the decade India was utterly unprepared for what followed Prolonged civil war in Afghanistan Pakistan’s acquisition of nuclear weapons the collapse of the Soviet Union and Rawalpindi’s success in helping the Taliban capture power in Kabul and redirecting violent extremism towards Punjab and Kashmir As New Delhi takes a fresh look at its northwestern frontiers it stares at a number of important trends Americans are leaving Afghanistan after a decade-long occupation of the country not on a note of triumph but uncertainty China until recently a minor player in the region has become an important external force in the subcontinent and appears poised to shape the future of Pakistan and Afghanistan Meanwhile both Washington and Beijing believe that reconciliation between Kabul and Rawalpindi holds the key to stability in the northwestern subcontinent Their efforts appear to have gained some traction as President Ashraf Ghani of Afghanistan has reached out to Rawalpindi The Pakistan army chief has in turn promised to deliver the Afghan Taliban to the negotiating table Saudi Arabia is being squeezed between the rise of Sunni extremism and a resurgent Shia Iran The Islamic Republic of Iran which long denounced America as the Great Satan is inching towards a nuclear deal with the US and is looking to bolster its position in the Middle East and Afghanistan Like the changes at the turn of the 1980s current developments will also have lasting consequences for India Unlike in the 1980s India is much better placed today Its weight in the region and the world has steadily grown thanks to the economic reforms of the last quarter of a century Its bilateral ties in the greater Middle East have acquired much more depth Above all Delhi has weathered all that Pakistan has thrown at it in Kashmir and beyond Yet Delhi has not been able to take full advantage of this at the diplomatic level The presumed political need to posture to domestic audiences on Pakistan and an inability to check the hawkishness of large sections of the security establishment have limited Delhi’s room for manoeuvre in the northwest Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had bold ideas but did not have the support of the Congress to take them to their logical conclusion Modi too is under much pressure at home to signal a hard line towards Pakistan irrespective of its merits It makes sense for the Modi government to break out of the “talks-no talks” paradigm that has bogged down every single government in the last few years Delhi’s refusal to talk to civilian governments in Islamabad made little difference in the past to Rawalpindi’s orchestration of terrorism in region What might make the difference is Pakistan’s emerging recognition of its own vulnerability to extremism especially after the attack on an army school in Peshawar last December As Pakistan struggles to cope with the extremist challenge at home and on its western frontiers Jaishankar would want to assess the scale and scope of this change and its implications for India Sticking to Delhi’s old political certitudes will only limit India’s ability to manage the profound transformation taking place in the northwestern marches of the subcontinent What Delhi needs is a strategy that will generate some influence for India in shaping the future of this critical sub-region Such a strategy will necessarily involve sustained dialogue with Pakistan a recalibration of the Afghan policy encouragement to the peace talks between Kabul and Rawalpindi and the readiness to engage all powers including the US China Russia Iran Saudi Arabia and Turkey which have a stake in the region’s stability The writer is a distinguished fellow at the Observer Research Foundation and a contributing editor for ‘The Indian Express’ For all the latest

RBI will be holding a meeting with its auditors later this month to discuss and decide the figure the report said The central bank usually declares its dividend to the government inAugust In order to arrive at the amount to be paid to the government the RBI has to add up the lower denomination notes that were not demonetised with the new notes and net it with the notes returned the report said On 11 February RBI Governor Urjit Patel had said that the central bank is still counting the notes that it received hinting that it could be a long wait for people to know the amount of old currency notes that were deposited post-demonetisation "The number that we should now divulge should be a verified one and congruent with the complex accounting There are tens of thousands of bank branches and 4000 currency chests" Patel had said after the RBI board’s meeting with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley PTI "Given that the window is open till March 31 and June 30 at lower level we need to be careful and try that this is a number which is not a mere estimate but a verified number — both physically and in the accounting sense" Patel had said Resident Indian citizens who were abroad during 9 November to 30 December 2016 were allowed to exchange the demonetised notes up to 31 March 2017 and non-resident Indians up to 30 June 2017 The last time the RBI gave an update on the notes was as of

the day Prime Minister Narendra Modi made the announcement of demonetising the two high denomination notes The total amount of high denomination currency circulating in the system on that day was thus

governor and deputy over demonetisation According to a PTI report the RBI told the PAC it does not know the "exact number" of junked currency notes that were in circulation and it is still "reconciling" the number of notes that were deposited back It is to be remembered that an additional 72 days have passed after prime minister Narendra Modi announced demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes "The exact number of Specified Bank Notes (SBNs) withdrawn from circulation is being worked out" the central bank said in a written submission to the PAC RBI Governor Urjit Patel along with

and girls according to a new brain-scanning study The study found structural differences between the sexes in one part of the insula a brain region among the youth with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) a mental health condition triggered by experiencing or seeing a terrifying event “The insula appears to play a key role in the development of PTSD The difference we saw between the brains of boys and girls who have experienced psychological trauma is important because it may help explain differences in trauma symptoms between sexes” said Victor Carrion Professor at Stanford University in California “Our findings suggest it is possible that boys and girls could exhibit different trauma symptoms and that they might benefit from different approaches to treatment” added Megan Klabunde psychologist from Stanford University In the study the research team conducted MRI scans of the brains of 59 study participants aged 9 to 17 Thirty of them 14 girls and 16 boys had trauma symptoms and 29 others the control group of 15 girls and 14 boys did not In the control group no differences was found in the brain structure of boys and girls However among the traumatised boys and girls they saw differences in a portion of the insula called the anterior circular sulcus This brain region had larger volume and surface area in traumatised boys than in boys in the control group Insula’s volume and surface area were smaller in girls with trauma than among girls in the control group the researchers said In addition the research also implies that traumatic stress could contribute to accelerated cortical ageing of the insula in girls who develop PTSD Klabunde noted adding that the study may help scientists understand how experiencing trauma could play into differences between the sexes in regulating emotions The paper was published online in the journal Depression and Anxiety For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsA Uttar Pradesh State
