The Weekly Analysis – Edition 16

There are two aspects to the news- knowing the headline and understanding the intricacies of it. We at The Connectere focus on both. While The First Forum edition gives a brief about the headlines, The Weekly Analysis Edition is meant to educate the reader on what do various news mean and what are their intricacies. This initiative is meant to educate the reader on how to understand the important news. In the Sixteenth Edition we are covering the following news:
1. IAF versus PLAAF
2. India considering 20-25% import tax on solar modules
3. Understanding the repercussions of the H1B suspension
4. Why is the surge in the Money Supply not directed towards consumption?

Kargil war 1999

The Kargil War of 1999

The famous Indian Territory, Kargil, commands a well-known claim to fame – owing to the year 1999- when India and Pakistan, two nuclear states, fought their limited and last war in the barren Himalayan peaks – splendid high altitude warfare. The glorified year witnessed Pakistani military intruding the Indian side of the de facto border, the LoC, a war that lasted 74 days and claimed greater than 1000 lives and concluded with India heralding victory and worldwide respect. India had successfully established itself a nuclear state in 1974, while Pakistan had been testing secretly and conducted its first official test in 1998. It is widely vouched that Pakistan’s freshly nurtured nuclear abilities encouraged it to afloat what later became the Kargil war in 1999 and that’s what curbed India to respond to the attack.

Indo-Pak war 1971

The Indo-Pak War 1971

India’s first decisive military victory came in the Indo-Pak war of 1971 when the Indian Army ‘liberated’ East Pakistan from the tyrannical oppressive rule of West Pakistan and created Bangladesh. It was the coming of age for the young nation which showed unsurmountable determination and unshakeable will power. The Indo-Pak war of 1971 changed the geography of the subcontinent and established India as the regional hegemon.

Indo-Pak war of 1965

The Indo-Pak War of 1965

In the summers of 1965, two nations formed out of the ruins of one met each other on the battlefields of northwestern India in the very famous Indo-Pak War. The Indian economy was not in good shape at that time due to the rising food prices. The man who shaped the nation as we know it today, Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, had left a power vacuum to be filled after his death. India was still licking its wounds from the Sino-Indo war of 1962. Pessimism was in the air when Lal Bahadur Shastri took over Nehru’s seat. At that time, India was spending 28% of its GDP on defense and was facing political pressure to spend heavily on nuclear tests.

 Contact tracing technology

Flatten The Curve – Contact Tracing Technology

Where, Who, When, Why, Whom – This is a set of questions that human contact tracers will ask everyone who has been diagnosed with any contagious disease. They will seek the information directly from the individuals to determine who they came in contact with, and when and where did these interactions take place? This is known as contact tracing, a technology used by government health agencies to identify people who may have been exposed to infectious diseases, either through direct contact with someone or through anyone who has been in close proximity to them. Its aim is to diminish the spread of an epidemic or pandemic by identifying the points of transmission and slowing community spread. Contact tracing has been a pillar for the control of infectious diseases in public health for decades. For example, smallpox has been eradicated not only by vaccination but by exhaustive contact tracing to find all infected people.

Flatten the Curve – Technologies for Social Distancing

Ever since the coronavirus has hit us, the one phrase that has probably been spoken the most is ‘social distancing’. It is the only tool that we have in our hands that can help us keep this virus ‘at a distance’. And ever since countries have decided to relax the nation-wide lockdowns, its importance has increased. As we return to our places of work, restaurants, malls, etc. we must keep in mind that the virus is still at large, and we need to follow certain rules to ensure that it doesn’t catch us. In fact, a number of startups have been working on technologies for social distancing. From wearable devices that measure the distance to wall-mounted cameras that monitor space-use, these social distancing technologies will soon become part of the ‘new’ normal.
