  2. PAGE-Il: It's BRICS plus Five for summit this time Chinese President Xi Jinping has invited Egypt, Kenya, Tajikistan, Mexico and Thailand to participate in the BRICS summit in Xiamen city from September 3 to 5 for expanding the sphere of influence of the emerging economies to form "BRICS Plus" bloc BRICS is not an exclusive club. To form a global economic system, we need to have some further explanation about the 'BRICS Plus' to help people better understand the rationale of this idea. The Challenges before India is likely to arise from China's plan for a BRICS-Plus" or Friends of BRICS" grouping, with Foreign Minister Wang Yi's plan to include Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Mexico to an expanded version of BRICS The suggestion of including Pakistan is something India has baulked at and won't pass quite yet, but it wouldn't want to be seen to be opposing China's rationale of promoting '"south- south cooperation" further India opposes any formal docking of China's Belt and Road Initiative with the BRICS. But India would have no problems in supporting individual bankable projects that are not formally declared a part of the BRI.

  3. Page-I I: India, China to put Doklam behind Analysts say that having benefited from open trade and investments, India is unlikely to let geopolitics or its close ties with Washington come in the way of joining China and the emerging economies in fostering a new wave of globalisation . The end of the Doklam crisis showed the "wisdom of great power diplomacy and how despite its overall military and economic superiority, China recognises India's heft as an emerging peer with its own robust territorial conviction. Apart from the emerging countries, the region, including South Asia and the 10-nation Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), would have a special interest in picking new signals shaping New Delhi-Beijing ties Indo-Pacific doctrine: Of late, India's pursuit of the Indo-Pacific doctrine, focussed on an energetic engagement of the ASEAN and island territories in the Pacific, with a strong Indian diaspora presence,is feeding into the broadening India-China equation.

  5. *Page12.WHOWHAT WHYWHEN WHERE WHERE Where will tigers come from? . The Sunderbans in south Bengal is home to about 100 tigers. Experts have consciously decided not to transfer tigers in the Buxa reserve from the Sunderbans,a completely different mangrove ecosystem. e Instead, tigers from the forest reserves of Assam, which have a similar flora and fauna, will be introduced in Buxa. The reserve is located very close to Assam's Manas Tiger Reserve,and some experts believe that animals from Manas often come to Buxa using Bhutan as a corridor. . What are the challenges? Population pressure:The initial plan is to introduce six tigers at Buxa, but this poses a challenge as there is human habitation in the ar The tiger reserve has an area of about 757.9 sq km, of which 390 sq km lies in the core area and 367 sq km in the buffer zone.There are about 38 villages in Buxa and 49 villages in the fringe area. A number of tea gardens are located on the periphery of the reserve. Another major challenge at Buxa is the broad gauge rail line passing through th e reserve, connecting Siliguri and Alipurduar.Over the past few years, a number of elephants and other animals have died, having been run over by trains.

The Buxa reserve is home to smaller cats such as leopards There are also common clouded leopards, jungle cats and fishing cats.The herbivore list includes elephants, Indian gaur, chital, sambars, barking deer and hog deer . It is home to at least 68 species of mammals, 4l species of reptiles and more than 246 species of birds, four species of amphibians, 73 species of fishes and over a hundred species of butterflies and moths. What is the stricture on tourists? Besides the arrival of tigers, wildlife enthusiasts have another reason to cheer as the Eastern Circuit Bench of the National Green Tribunal has directed the State government to close all tourist accommodations in the Buxa reserve. . The Tribunal was responding to a petition by an environmentalist who alleged that the tourist facilities had come up in violation of the Indian Forest Act and other laws. There are about 90 accommodations, run by both the Forest Department and private operators, in the reserve.
