Why PM Modi's Bold Gambit on Balochistan May Boomerang.

In statecraft, especially in that fine craft called espionage, there is a term which is very commonly used. Plausible deniability. It was first used back in the fifties by the CIA’s legendary Director Allen Dulles, after whose family the Dulles Airport in Washington is named. Back then the US used to run a series of covert operations, many of them were geared towards assassinating Fidel Castro. It also included regime changes in countries whose rulers were not favourable to America, like Iran and Guatemala and culminating in the Bay of Pigs fiasco.

Some of these operations were successful, others were not. But the important thing was the US President had no direct knowledge of any of these covert goings on. And it was deliberately kept so by the top dogs at the CIA. The reason was simple. Plausible deniability. If it got to a stage where the US President had to testify before Congress or before the courts or before the American public, then he or she could plead innocence citing no direct knowledge.

India’s involvement in Balochistan always fell in that grey area called plausible denial. Up until Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Independence Day speech. Although India’s covert operations in Pakistan had officially been called off back in 1997 when IK Gujral was prime minister, no one quite took it to be the gospel truth. Certainly no one in Pakistan did. Look no further than the August 7 attack at Quetta’s civil hospital which wiped away almost all of that city’s legal fraternity. Quetta is the capital of Balochistan.

Ramya on sedition case: Will not apologise for my Pakistan remark, said nothing wrong.

Actor-politician Divya Spandana, responding to the sedition charge filed against her, said she will not apologise for her comments on Pakistan as this would go against the cause that everyone is fighting against. "I don’t have an ego at all and in any given incident, I would have apologised, but if I do in this case, the larger cause we're fighting for would go," she said.

She had earlier spoken about Pakistan, praising the people for their hospitality, 'outraged' by which, a lawyer in Karnataka filed a case of sedition against the former Lok Sabha MP, who also goes by the name Ramya.

The ex-Congress MP said, "Its really sad but such is situation in country today. Everybody is entitled to their views and that is what democracy is about. You can't force your ideology on anyone."

Reiterating her earlier remarks, Ramya said, "I respectfully disagree, Pakistan is not hell, people there are just like us." She was referring to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar's remarks that going to hell and going to Pakistan were the same.

Ramya, who visited Pakistan to attend the Saarc meeting of young parliamentarians had spoken of how she felt the people of Pakistan were very welcoming and went out of their way to make her stay comfortable on getting to know she was from India.

"Politicians want to polarise and spread hatred. Just because borders separate us we shouldn't hate others," she said adding to her reply to the sedition charge.

'Why Would I Lie?' OP Jaisha, Who Collapsed In Rio, Takes On Officials.

Bengaluru: Runner OP Jaisha has strongly refuted the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) allegation that she refused energy drinks as she ran the marathon at the Rio Olympics.

Jaisha, 33, collapsed at the finish line and has said that she ran the gruelling 42-km race without support from Indian officials who were missing at desks placed by countries a few kilometres apart so that their competitors can be offered refreshments.

But CK Valson, a top AFI official has said it is untrue that officials were missing. He said that Jaisha and her coach had refused the offer to have refreshments served at the counters that Indian officials could have manned.

"Why would I lie? There was no water in Rio...I am not blaming the Sports  Authority of India or the administration...After 21 km, I was really exhausted, I couldn't even walk for a metre," the Kerala athlete told NDTV on Monday night.

"There needs to be an inquiry...I am sure that had something grave happened to me, AFI would have still said that OP Jaisha didn't avail refreshment," she told news agency ANI.

During a marathon, competitors' countries are entitled to place a desk every 2.5 km to offer them liquids. Instead, it was official Olympics counters - placed about 8 km apart - that Jaisha had to rely on, the athlete has alleged.

PV Sindhu Mobbed On Homecoming, Victory Ride On Open-Top Bus.

A beaming Olympic champion PV Sindhu arrived this morning at the Hyderabad airport, where hundreds had gathered to greet her. Top politicians and others jostled to present flowers and shawls and click selfies with the first Indian woman to win a Silver medal at the Games.

With her is her coach Pulella Gopichand, who has now trained two Olympic medallists in Saina Nehwal and Sindhu. They have boarded a special open double-decker bus commissioned by the Telangana government all the way from Mumbai, and are travelling in a victory rally to a city stadium.

Many people have lined up along the 30 km route to the stadium to cheer Sindhu, 21. Waiting at the stadium, where the Telanagana government has organised a celebration, are hundreds, including students holding up big posters of the champ.

Both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh sent top ministers to greet Ms Sindhu at the airport in the capital they currently share. While Sindhu's mother Vijaya is from Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh, her father PV Rammna is from Adilabad in Telangana.

Both states have announced rewards to celebrate Sindhu's Silver - the Telangana government will give her a cash reward of 5 crore, a residential plot in Hyderabad and has offered her a job. The Andhra Pradesh government too has offered Sindhu a job and will give her a cash reward of 3 crore and a residential plot in Amravati, the new capital city it is building.
