China raised border dispute in the eastern sector of Bhutan

s  China Bhutan border dispute that China has raised in the eastern sector of Bhutan. In June, at the subject of the UNDP led Global Environment Facility, Bhutan was seeking additional funding for economic production activities at the Sakteng wildlife sanctuary. That is located in the eastern sector of Bhutan, but the shocking surprise of Bhutan, and as well as, India, China claims the areas around the Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary belong to Chinese territory. And based on this new claim, China tried to block funding to the environment conservation project of Bhutan under the Global Environment Facility. The Eastern sector of Bhutan is quite shocking because until now, the border dispute between China and Bhutan was restricted to the Western, and the northern sectors, there were only three disputed areas between China and Bhutan. and this included the Doklam plateau, located at the tri-junction of India, China Bhutan this falls under the western sector of the China Bhutan border and then, towards the northern sector, China and Bhutan have a dispute at two locations. The Sakteng wildlife sanctuary, where China shares no border has raised a lot of concern in both India and as well as in Bhutan. India's concern is that China is deliberately opening a new front in the eastern sector of Bhutan, because of its proximity to Arunachal Pradesh, and especially the Tawang. So the proximity of the Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary to India's Tawang. And the fact that China does not share any border in this region has given rise to speculation that the opening of this new border dispute by China is not aimed at Bhutan, but instead, it could be aimed at India. Because China had never raised any claims in the eastern sector of Bhutan. Since the border talks began between the two countries in 1984. Both Bhutan and India have reacted very cautiously. And they have not come out with any rational response. Initially should be put on rejected these Chinese claims and it exploits sensitivity towards Indian concerns, which is in line with the close and intimate relationship that India and Bhutan shared is the domain of foreign policy. Bhutan seeks India's guidance in its foreign policy. And even though it makes its foreign policy decisions on its own. It always consults with India, and always displays sensitivity towards Indian concerns. But even though Bhutan does not share any official diplomatic ties with China. It has repeatedly raised, these new claims over the last six weeks, causing a great deal of concern in both India and Bhutan. China has raised this issue three times and it has reminded Bhutan, that the border disputes in the west, north, and east can be resolved by going back to the package solution, which China had earlier recommended back in the 1990s, which proposed an exchange of the disputed territories, with China retaining the western sector and Bhutan gaining control over the northern sector. Ever since the border talks began between China and Bhutan in 1984, China's prime focus has always been on gaining control over the Doklam plateau. That is located close to the strategic Chumbi Valley. So in the interest of retaining its hole on the Doklam plateau. China has always shown the willingness to give up claims in the northern sector. The reason why China is so interested in the Doklam plateau is that its strategic location near to the Chumbi valley where the tri-junction between India, China, and Bhutan exists, provides China, unique leverage against India. So for this reason, China has always sought to increase its hold over the Doklam plateau. And in the past as a part of a package solution. Now after raising a new claim in the eastern sector around the Sakteng wildlife sanctuary. China has reminded Bhutan, of the package solution of the 1990s. And this could be an attempt to exert greater pressure on Bhutan and trade the northern and eastern sectors in favor of the western sector. Bhutan also feels that this could be a pressure tactic for China. To push Bhutan, to resume the border negotiations, which have been since the Doklam dispute of 2017, India, on the other hand, feels that by opening the new front in the eastern sector of Bhutan. China is trying to create a diversionary tactic to distract India concern its ongoing tensions in the Ladakh sector. India also believes that this could be a Chinese attempt to disrupt the friendly relations between India and Bhutan. And this has also led to concerns for India. China is trying to push its claims over the Tawang region. So in this context, both India and Bhutan work closely and retain their close cooperation and not let China's pressure tactics to disrupt the trust and faith that both countries have on each other. Now it is also more important for India, Bhutan to work together, because of the Doklam plateau dispute. China has tended its military infrastructure. After the Doklam dispute of 2017. So by opening a new front in the eastern sector of Bhutan. China could push India and Bhutan to settle for a packet solution that brings China closer to the strategy Chumbi valley. So the best way to counter this new Chinese aggression is by strengthing the India Bhutan relationship from the pressure tactic of China, and by shaping up cooperation between the two countries.

How lockdown having a disproportionate impact on women

A disaster or catastrophic ends to have a disproportionate impact on women. According to the writer, this is because of the traditional gender-based role of women in society. For example, during the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, it was observed that the disaster had a disproportionate impact on women, mainly because of their gender-defined roles. Since women are generally seen as the traditional caregiver in the family, they lacked the required life-saving skills, and as a result, a relatively higher number of deaths count was registered amongst women during the tsunami. Then after the disaster, women who were rendered homeless were accommodated in relief camps. And it was observed that at these relief camps, women had to face abuse and molestation, and they even had to face hygiene and sanitation issues at these relief camps. similar challenges have been faced by women in the United States as well, which is frequently hit by tornadoes. similar challenges were noted during the 2018 19 f…

Are humans responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic

Humans responsible for the pandemic According to the UNDP. The spread of a zoonotic disease such as COVID-19 can be directly attributed to the overexploitation of biodiversity and ecosystems by human beings. The UNDP has said that several zoonotic diseases have affected human beings because of increased contact of humans with animals. Especially wild animals. So these diseases with a jump from animals to human beings are referred to as zoonotic diseases or zoonosis. And it is a direct outcome of the overexploitation of biodiversity and ecosystems through human activities. The UNDP report even says that it is not just COVID-19 but even tuberculosis, rabies, malaria, toxoplasmosis h1 none SARS, burst, Ebola Zika, etc. They are all examples of zoonosis that have jumped from animals to human beings. And in each case, the source can be attributed to the destruction of the environment and biodiversity through human activities
It is found that the coronavirus outbreak certainly comes from t…

Researchers found new symptoms of COVID19

Many COVID-19 cases have emerged from Europe and the United States, where many patients have reported a complete inability to smell or even to taste. So, this has given rise to questions, whether the SARS coronavirus is affecting our neurons that are responsible for smell and taste, or is it affecting other cells, which are involved in this olfactory function. A recent study conducted in India has shown that it is not the neurons that are being affected by the virus, but instead, it is a set of cells present in the upper regions of our nasal cavity that are being affected by the double Coronavirus. These cells include the sub Technicolor cells and the horizontal basal cells. But importantly, these cells are not directly involved in helping us smell. It means that these cells are not directly involved in the olfactory function. But these cells help us nourish and support the other cells, which are actually involved in the olfactory function. So this means that the novel Coronavirus is…
