India stood tall in the world arena when Kailash Satyarthi was announced as the winner of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize that is to be shared with 17-year-old Pakistani student and education activist, Malala Yousafzai, writes Priyanka Bhardwaj.

A group of doctors at Stanford decided to establish a clinic where families would have access to remarkable resources.

In addition to the most advanced evaluation and treatment, the Stanford South Asian Translational Heart Institute aims to become a center for research that will change that landscape of elevated risk and mortality to one that can more precisely predict an individual’s risk, catch disease earlier and refine treatments. To do that, it needs more information, and is asking patients to let them bank their DNA to create a biobank they believe will reveal some of the mysteries of heart disease in South Asians.

Answers are still being hunted, but the reality of early heart disease in South Asians is undeniable. At the Stanford South Asian Translational Heart Institute, specialists are determined to provide life-saving outreach, writes Rajesh Dash, MD, PhD.

Presently in India, the buzz is about e-retailers such as Flipkart, Amazon.in, Snapdeal, Jabong, Infibeam and many more backed by funders who believe the sure shot route to making more money in the future is by making more losses right now. A few years back there was a similar buzz about airlines in the country. A ticket to Goa was cheaper than taxi fare to the airport, writes Siddharth Srivastava.

India’s Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi submitted a list of 627 names having accounts in HSBC bank, Geneva. These names were earlier shared with the SIT. Justice Shah said there will be more prosecution of people who have stashed black money within the reasonable time, reports the Press Trust of India.
