NEW DELHI: As India turns 75 today (Monday), the country’s richest man and business tycoon Mukesh Ambani celebrated its diamond jubilee with his wife Nita Ambani and grandson Prithvi Ambani. In a video making the rounds on the internet, Mukesh Ambani can be seen enjoying a national song holding his grandson Prithvi Ambani, while his wife is waving the national flag.

BERLIN — In the race to replace German Chancellor Angela Merkel as the head of her center-right Christian Democrats, the buzzword is undoubtedly change . The CDU party-leader election in Hamburg Friday will mark the first open leadership contest within Germany’s dominant party in decades. As mainstream parties across Europe continue to struggle in the face of challenges from upstart movements and the far right, ambitious CDU pols have seized the moment to launch a rare, broader debate about the direction of their party and the country. But as much as they may prefer to focus on political renewal, the three contenders for the top job—a former political rival of Merkel, an unofficially anointed successor, and an ambitious young member of her cabinet—are stuck between promising change and honoring Merkel’s outsize legacy.

Did she help the CDU ascend to new … [Read more...] about Is It Time to Bury Merkel’s Legacy?

More info The Prime Minister has come under fire for not fully disclosing details of his much-vaunted renegotiation of Britain's EU membership , despite jetsetting around Europe for a series of talks in the wake of his general election victory. Instead, the Tory leader has only given a broad indication of his priorities, as well being vague on when a promised in/out referendum will take place.
