Delhi Diaries: Congress' resistance to build new leadership; the Press Information Bureau pushing the BJP narrativeIn the last six years, the personality driven diplomacy skills of the prime minister, Narendra Modi, have gained much attention. However, with bitterness seeping into India s relationship with China following the killing of 20 Indian soldiers at the border, the same approach has come to haunt Modi and his government. A video from 2015 is being circulated on social media in which the PM is heard talking about his extraordinary personal relationship with the Chinese premier, Xi Jinping, while addressing the Indian diaspora in Shanghai. In the video, Modi mentions having received a phone call from President Xi in 2014 after winning the general elections. Modi claimed that he was pleasantly surprised when Xi gave him a description of his birthplace, Vadnagar. Modi said Xi told him that he had read about Vadnagar in an account by the Chinese traveller, Hiuen Tsang, and added that after returning from Vadnagar to China, Hiuen Tsang had visited Xi s birthplace, Xian. Modi said Xi even took him to the latter s birthplace for a visit. Amid applause, the PM stressed that their conversation was proof of the affinity , intimacy and brotherhood between the two premiers. The same Xi has now turned into one of the most hated figures for the saffron brigade and this old video has turned into an embarrassment for the ruling party, which is desperately trying to counter it by flooding social media with charges of a warm relationship between the Nehru Gandhi family and the Chinese establishment.

Then there are the cosmetics we use. Women love to pose for selfies with a close up of their puckered lips, but how many know that some lipsticks and blushers have cochineal dye, which is collected from crushed cochineal beetles? The insects feed on cactus plants in Central and South America and the females eat the red cactus berries. When they re crushed, an intense red dye is produced. Mascaras and nail polishes also contain guanine, a crystalline shimmering substance found in crushed fish scales. Animal fat like tallow is common in eye makeup or makeup base. The carcasses of slaughtered animals are boiled to churn out a fatty substance, which is added to the base that you could be applying on your face almost every day. Squalene, an oil obtained from shark livers, finds widespread use in sunscreens, lipsticks, foundations, lotions and many other cosmetics. Even gelatin, used in cream based cosmetics and even ice cream, is processed by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments and bones of animals.Makeup removers, too, aren ''t devoid of weird ingredients, as they contain lanolin, excretion from wool bearing mammals. Ambergris, derived from the waxy oil that lines a whale s stomach, is used for the scent in perfumes.The icky factor doesn t end here. Snail mucin is big in K beauty for its hydrating potential and regeneration of skin, as it contains glycolic acid and glycoprotein enzymes. Snail slime, an unpleasant, slippery and thick semi solid substance, is processed and packaged as creams, gels, serums, toners, moisturisers and gel face masks experts say snail beauty therapy has been big in south Asian countries like Japan, China and the West for some time now. In fact, snail farming, known as heliciculture, involves raising land snails for human use: flesh is used as edible escargot, eggs as gourmet caviar and slime for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.Italy ''s largest agriculture industry association Coldiretti recently estimated that 44,000 tonnes of live and preserved snails are produced annually in the country, making it an industry worth $292 million. We are seeing record numbers of new avant garde snail production businesses, claimed Roberto Moncalvo, president, Coldiretti. We raise them naturally, feed them only vegetable matter and then extract the slime with water that contains ozone, which kills all the bacteria, Moncalvo added (the lockdown has, however, had a negative impact on snail businesses in Italy because farmers haven ''t been able to transport produce. The government has now set up a 100 million euro fund to support agricultural businesses).Closer home, the Nagas relish river snails cooked with dal. Speaking of food, even that industry isn ''t far behind when it comes to making use of creepy and weird ingredients. If you love marshmallows, maybe you ve been topping off a whole lot of animal protein on your scrumptious strawberry shake for years, as marshmallows are made from gelatin.Some foods may be sweet in taste, but a slight mention of the ingredient will leave you sick. Take, for instance, a colourful candy coated with shellac, a sticky substance derived from the secretions of the female Kerria lacca, an insect native to Thailand. Jelly beans pack a punch of gooeyness but they use shellac too. And don t be amazed if you find ocean saltwater injected into food. Some packaged meats like raw chicken may contain salt or other ingredients injected into them to enhance flavour and increase the weight.Do you like sprinkling loads of shredded cheese on your pizza? Cheese has wood pulp, officially ascribed as cellulose to boost fibre and add creaminess to low fat foods and to help keep shredded cheese from clumping together. Ingredients like rennet, an enzyme found in the stomach of nursing cows, lambs and goats, which is extracted by killing the animal, are also found in cheese.Chewing gum is made with lanolin a secretion from the skin glands of sheep which makes it chewy. Chewing gums that don ''t use lanolin are often made out of synthetic rubbers instead. Canned mushrooms also have traces of maggots and mites. You may, in fact, find an average of 75 or more mites per 100 gm of drained mushrooms and the proportionate liquid in a can.Even beers are filtered through isinglass, a gelatin made out of fish bladder. Animal rights group PETA, in fact, warns on its website that many wines include blood and bone marrow, casein (milk protein), chitin (fibre from crustacean shells), egg albumen (derived from egg whites), fish oil, gelatin and isinglass . The animals rights group has also asked luxury brands to stop using exotic skins, and wants a ban on their sale.While that may still take some time, Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus crisis, has completely banned the consumption of wild animals and has made wildlife trade illegal. The ban includes all terrestrial animals, animals that live and reproduce in the wilderness, and precious aquatic wild animals. In April, the Chinese ministry of agriculture and rural affairs compiled a list of special livestock non domesticated animals like reindeer, alpaca, guinea fowl, ostrich and emu can be farmed for meat, while animals like mink, silver fox, arctic fox and raccoon dog can be farmed for fur. China has also upgraded the protection of the pangolin believed to be the intermediate host of the virus to that of first class protected animal on a par with other endangered species like giant pandas. And Shenzhen has become the first Chinese city to ban the sale and consumption of dog and cat meat.Colombia s capital Bogota, one of the oldest bullfighting cities in the Americas, has also outlawed the mistreatment and killing of animals in a move aimed at eventually banning the events. The Scottish government is also going to ban the fish farming industry from shooting seals to save a 180 million pound export business to the US, which plans to stop import of fish from countries which allow seals to be killed to protect fisheries, as per reports.
SRINAGAR, India: Indian forces have killed eight militants in restive Kashmir, including two who hid in a mosque, officials said Friday, as New Delhi escalates counter insurgency efforts in the disputed territory. The new fatalities following gunbattles on Thursday and Friday take the death toll of alleged militants over 100 this year, officials said. Indian administered Kashmir has been in turmoil since last August when New Delhi revoked its semi autonomous status and imposed a communications blackout that has not been fully lifted. One gunbattle at Neej, near the Muslim majority region s main city of Srinagar, led to the death of one militant and a night long standoff with two others who hid inside a mosque, officials said. Security forces used tear smoke shells on the mosque and later neutralized the two inside, Kashmir s inspector general of police Vijay Kumar said in a Twitter statement. There were no immediate independent accounts of the incident. Security forces also killed five militants who hid in an underground shelter in an apple orchard in Shopian district, security officials said. The shootouts have also sparked clashes between government forces and villagers who support the militants. Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since the two became independent and angrily split in 1947. Both claim the whole region which has been the cause of two wars between the neighbors. Indian forces battling a decades old uprising that has cost tens of thousands of mainly civilian lives have stepped up counter insurgency operations in the region during a recent coronavirus lockdown. In recent weeks the two nuclear armed neighbors have exchanged heavy artillery fire along the unofficial Kashmir border. LONDON: British media said several people had been stabbed in the southern English town of Reading on Saturday and police in the area said they were investigating reports of an incident. Sky News said the stabbings took place at the site of Black Lives Matter protest in the town earlier in the day. Video footage posted on Twitter showed paramedics rushing to help at least three people who were bleeding on the ground in a park. Reuters was unable to verify the footage independently.

The film Axone by Nicholas Kharkongor, which released on Netflix recently to mixed reviews, revolves around two flatmates from Manipur and Nepal, living in Delhi, who wish to surprise their third flatmate, from Nagaland, by making her favourite dish. The first two characters, played by Lin Laishram and Sayani Gupta, spend the day trying to find a spot to cook meat with axone, a fermented soy paste from Nagaland made with either fresh or dried beans. They scurry furtively to ensure its pungent aroma doesn t reach the neighbours and invoke their wrath.While the film seems to have disappointed many people from across the North East, one of the central locations in it is popular with them Asha Stores, a one stop shop set up in 2011 in Humayunpur, south central Delhi, and dedicated to ingredients from the eight states of the North East. Founded by M. Asha, a 38 year old from Imphal, Manipur, the store is frequented by students, young professionals, staff from local restaurants and home cooks. It stocks an array of ingredients, such as local ginger, pea shoot leaves, wild orange peels, unique snow cookies, sticky rice, smoked meats and michinga, a plant based ingredient, but the pi ce de r sistance is the wide variety of axone dried, wet, semi dry, with chilli, without it, from the Sema, Ao, Angami and other tribes.

A Man centres on the journey of Akira Kido, a middle aged lawyer, to discover the identity of a man who, until his death, had been posing as a certain Daisuk Taniguchi. Kido searches, too, for the real Daisuk , but the more his investigations progress, the more he begins to reflect on his own frustrated life. This plot of double identities seems partly to draw inspiration from Jun ichiro Tanizaki s famous 1926 novella, The Story of Tomoda and Matsunaga, which explores in dramatic fashion the total reinvention of the individual. Yet, where Tanizaki uses the double life to picture the curious relationship between Japan and the West, Hirano finds an opportunity to look inward and interrogate the very workings of the self. With themes of racism and political controversy, and the spectre of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake looming large, A Man is a stubbornly modern, naturalistic exploration of the double identity theme and the philosophical musings it provokes.Hirano uses the meticulous investigations of the lawyer Kido to throw into relief the insistent messiness of identity, both from a legal and philosophical perspective. The more the mystery reveals about the backstories of Daisuk and the man posing as Daisuk , the more blurred truth and deception become, until Kido can no longer be certain of the validity of either. The central message that our protagonist gleans, and that the author seems intent on conveying, is that just as much meaning can be extracted from a life founded upon lies as one that is completely "real". Deceit becomes attractive, even erotically charged at times, to the extent that the truth which represents the ostensible goal of the mystery plot no longer enjoys the nobility assigned to it by (among other things) the law. Where such novels often necessarily suffer something of an anti climax at their revelatory d nouement, Hirano attests that the key mysteries of identity, truth and deceit remain unsolved.
