 Gunbattle on with militants holed up in mosque
At least two Army personnel, including a Major, and two militants were killed and several injured in a continuing encounter near a mosque at Doodipra village in north Kashmir.

Clinton, Ambanis and the peace pipeline
`What is good for the Ambanis may be good for India', has been a widely-held proposition. Now, it might also be true that what makes sense for the Ambanis could be equally sensible for the whole subcontinent.

An act of desperation: Advani
Stating that India had succeeded against Pakistan at the diplomatic level, the Union Home Minister, Mr. L. K. Advani, today said militancy had increased after the Kargil conflict and that the Chatti Singhpora massacre of 35 Sikhs was an outcome of the tremendous pressure on militants to do something to internationalise the Kashmir issue during the U.S. President, Mr. Bill Clinton's visit to South Asia.

As Pakistanis mulled over the significance of the address of the United States President, Mr. Bill Clinton, over the state-run television on Saturday, it became clear that he left Pakistan-India relations pretty much the same as he found them.

Putin ahead in exit polls
Russia's Acting President, Mr. Vladimir Putin, was well ahead of the other 10 contenders in Sunday's presidential poll and could scrape past the 50-per cent voter support he needs to claim outright victory in the very first round.

Bihar Cong.'s return from wilderness
It is moonlight and roses once again for the Congress(I) in Bihar, which returned to power, even if only as a junior partner of the RJD, after about a decade of wilderness. With this, the State - for good or bad - enters a new era of coalition governments.

Looking beyond the hype and spin
With the U.S.President, Mr.Bill Clinton, having wrapped up his India visit, the thinking in the two capitals must be on two fronts. First, in looking past the hype and ``spin'' to come to grips with reality. The Clinton visit was indeed historic, but it is not that Washington has signed on to the New Delhi agenda on major issues. The question of ``how much'' the American position shifted is a subject of debate.
