The psychological feeling of isolation in the Northeast is striking Assam does not even figure in the National Anthem (perhaps because a Bengali wrote it) nor does the Brahmaputra But then neither do any rivers of South India The construction of the Indian national identity is relentlessly North Indian; indeed largely Doab and Delhi Sultanate based The stories of Aryans reciting the Vedas (Punjab) or Muslims invading India (Punjab again) have little connect in the South or Northeast whose indigenous people predate the Aryans The secularists take pride in Akbar and treat the Mughal Empire as a template of independent Indiabut then the Mughals or Ashoka or any other King in ROI never conquered Assam The Northeast is a part of India thanks to the British imperial ambition over Burma How many Indians know or care that one of the toughest battle fought on Indian soil was for Kohima in 1944 when the Indian Army under British officers held Kohima against the Japanese and prevented the spread of Second World War on Indian soil (The INA fought with the Japanese but mainly as sappers and coolies and not as combatants thanks to Japanese racism) The Northeast was crucial to Indias territorial

entire period India has been independent and across the borderthe Kachins are still at war with the Myanmar government The region poses fundamental questions of national identity since many communities pre-date British rule and have been autonomous through much of their long history The British conquered them but independent India has to include them into the narrative of Indian nationhood Of coursethe Northeast is an integral part of India but it is still up to ROI to make an effort to admit its diverse cultures and historiesits languages and religions into the rich

policy environment has shifted IT and BPO jobs out of hereto more reasonable regimes To The Honourable Finance Minister of India Dear sir I wish to introduce myself as the finance minister of the Philippines I am truly grateful for all the actions that your excellent ministry has been undertaking these past few yearswhich have helped the BPO industry in the Philippines a great deal You may be aware that the Philippines BPO industry has been growing much faster than its Indian counterpart and is now all set to overtake the Indian industrywhich till a decade ago was viewed by all of us with wondermentawe and envy We never dreamed that our country could be in the same league as India But then we were earlier not well-informed about your income tax departmentthe frequent and arbitrary changes in rules that emanate from this department and the vicious harassment of Indian IT and BPO industries which over the last several years has become a concerted strategy of this great department We in the Philippines count the Indian income tax authorities among our best friends We request you to give us the names of the individuals in this worthy department who have been behind this wonderful strategy of weakening this labour-intensive Indian industry and indirectly helping the growth of our own We would like to confer special Magsaysay Awards to these individualsrefer to them as Friends of the Philippines and invite them to have a holiday in our country The BPO companies in the Philippines have generously promised to foot the entire bill of their benefactors The Indian income tax authorities are particularly targeting captive BPO companies by asking them to re-compute their taxable profits based on arbitrary and changing transfer pricing guidelines without adequate safe harbour provisionswhich are commonplace in most countries We have decided to do exactly the opposite We are reasonable in our tax demandssimple and transparent in our transfer pricing rules and generous in our tax holidays This has resulted in many captives stopping the growth of their Indian BPO outfits and accelerating the growth of their units in the Philippines All the employees of these units in my country wish to express their gratitude to youyour government and your ministry Without the capricious behaviour of the Indian governmentmost of them would not have jobs I am now told that your officials are raising tax demands on captive units of global companies using their global profits as the basis What a wonderful idea I have no doubt that this one decision alone would cause several of these companies not only to stop growing their Indian subsidiariesbut actually start winding them down Nothing could be better news for the Philippines I have instructed my officials to come up with other distinctly business-unfriendly regulatory ideas We will share them with your officials when they visit us As and when such ideas are implementeddoubtless the Indian BPO industry is bound to shrink and glory days are sure to be ahead for our country We are told that in many cases these rapacious tax demands will in due course be struck down by your independent tribunals and courts In the meantimethe companies will have to pay upbe out of cash and will be spending their time and money on expensive tax lawyers instead of focusing on their operating businesses Of coursein some yearsthe whole problem will go away as all of them will close shop in India and move to the Philippines We will then be more generous with Magsaysay and Friend of the Philippines awards In forums like the WTOyour country and mine have been arguing in favour of free movement of labour where it is associated with trade in services For instancewhen an IT project has to be implemented in the USoverseas service-providers are required to send staff on-site to help supervise and implement the project Some political groups in the US have been arguing that these activities constitute body-shopping and have been making the case for using visa restrictions as a non-tariff barrier against trade in services It is gratifying to note that our two countries have been on the same side in this argument HoweverI am informed that your income tax department has now taken the position that such revenues do not constitute service exports and that in fact they are really body-shopping They are in effect supporting those in the US who wish to impose trade barriers on Indian firms At firstI was a little puzzled as to why one wing of your esteemed government would so fatally undermine the sovereign position of your government But the more I dug into itthe more obvious it became to me that the Indian government is full of Friends of the Philippines and Friends of China Your tax authorities are actually going back several years in time and raising demands on service export revenues (sorry they are right body shopping revenues)forcing your largesuccessfulworld class companies to pay upmake provisionsissue guarantees and generally get weakened financially It is particularly heartening to note that there are persons in India who are determined to wreck one of the few industries where India has achieved world class and where Indian companies are considered formidable operators I brought to the attention of the finance minister of China the fact that Indian IT companies who till the other day were poster boys of India are now being harassed despite earlier explicit and emphatic assurances that on-site project implementation revenues would be treated as export income The finance minister of China was salivating He is now looking forward to global corporations and for that matterIndian IT companies are moving more and more of their activities to China

says the study Top News Walnuts may offer beneficial effects on inflammation and metabolism especially when combined with other whole foods a recent study published in The Journal of Nutrition revealed These benefits may be amplified when walnuts which are rich in ALA the plant based form of omega-3 fatty acid are paired with cherries raspberries and green tea The study[1] led by Dr Neil Shay of Oregon State University evaluated the consumption of walnuts in combination with a number of other whole foods in a typical Western diet to measure potential health benefits The human equivalent of a low-fat or high-fat diet in addition to a high-fat diet with 86 per cent added walnut by weight were fed to mice Other groups were provided the walnut diet with a second whole food Results showed the strongest pairings were walnuts with cherries raspberries or green tea After 10 weeks the walnut group was markedly healthier than the high-fat control group Compared to those fed a high-fat diet hepatic (liver) fat concentrations were reduced in mice fed walnuts and walnuts with other whole foods The study also found that the addition of a second whole food in combination with walnut produced other changes in metabolite and gene expression levels and other physiological parameters contributing to the beneficial effects on inflammation and metabolism Dr Shay explained “While much study has been done on individual foods or the effect of specific nutrients human beings don’t eat just one thing or nutrient we eat a variety of foods together This study looks at how different whole foods work together to potentially have a positive effect in a Western diet “He went on to say “What is important to remember is these significant changes are occurring at typical levels of intake representing only 15 servings of each food per day” “The outcomes of this study confirm walnuts role as a whole food in a balanced diet” said Dennis a Balint CEO of the California Walnut Commission “The CWC will continue to invest in health research to establish stronger evidence as to walnuts’ exceptional benefits” To date the CWC has supported research that has resulted in over 100
