India has voiced its concern over the decision of Pakistan to hand over the operation of its strategically located Port of Gwadar on the Arabian Sea to China. This puts in place China's "string of pearls" strategy.

This has prompted India to open talks with Oman and Japan over strategic co-operation.

I don't know if this is already common knowledge but I didn't know and maybe there are others like me, so thought I'd share; The name Pakistan is actually an acronym. The name was devised by students at Cambridge in a pamphlet produced just over a decade before Pakistan's independence. It stands for Punjab, Afghania,Kashmir, Sindh, and Baluchistan.

If this is common knowledge I sincerely apologise.

I've spent months in Pakistan, almost entirely in the northern areas in among the Karakorum mountains. Love the friendly people there, love the amazing scenery, but don't like the idea of Pakistan the political entity. The people who be just as great, the scenery just as magnificent, if Gandhi had got his way, partition had never happened and the Islamic state had not been set up.
