Maduro’s excesses
Even by the standards of Latin America’s relatively volatile politics, there seem to be few parallels in recent memory to the brutally authoritarian rule of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, who has plunged a prosperous nation into complete paralysis.

Chauhan, grimly observes that “the existing system of bail in India is inadequate and inefficient to accomplish its purpose.”

Maharajah of debt
On Air India’s revival
The reputation of India’s national air carrier for making consecutive losses is closely matched, and also linked, to its operational efficiencies. The issue of whether the airline has a future has been frequently posed, but the question has a certain edge after the introduction and growth of private airlines.
