USA’s abstention on UNSC Résolution pertaining to illegal occupations of Israel was a departure from its earlier stand.Israel has been USA’s staunch ally in Middle East.US has given significant foreign aids to Israel, latter has allowed US’s military bases in its territory.The deterioration of relations between them will also have serious reverberations for India. The sectors that can be “potentially” affected are: 1.Defence: India is a major buyer of Israeli defence equipments.It has replaced.At the same time India and USA have “strategic dialogue” going on since 2010.India USA entered into new framework for defence and security cooperation in 2005.Both sides are necessary to India and it will have a tough time managing it. 2.Economy: India and Israel are major trade partners.They have also been negotiating “bilateral free trade agreement”.India and USA also have a closely linked economy.There are already tensions due to Intellectual Property Rights and Visa issues.Such tensions can flare up if India shifts closer to Israel. 3.Science and Technology:Israel is a pioneer in agriculture especially drip water irrigation.India has expressed interest in cooperation and technology transer.There also have been talks of Isreal setting up research centre in India.With USA also we have signed Indo US Nuclear Deal.US has been pushing for India’s entry in NSG too.NSG will allow India to acquire state of art technology. Hence again a strong clash of interest will occur. 4.Culture and Soft Power: India has always been supportive of Israel.From recognising it in 1950 to opening foreign relations in 1990s, both have been engaging on cultural and people to people level.India and USA also have a strong connect cause of NRIs and similar liberal values.Again choosing a side will be tough. However the situation is not very grim. As said by S Jaishankar “International Relations isn’t a zero sum game”.India during NAM balanced USA and USSR.Even in Middle east it has good relations with both Arab nations as well as Israel.Hence it can be expected that India will also manage this conundrum by its diplomatic and trade policies.

Review please, it was a little difficult to be meaningful and compact so i think i word limit has been compromised.
Hi Hardik, Nice choice of words as usual :). Segregating the relationship into Defense, Economy and Science is a good approach. From your entire answer what I understood is that, you are projecting US as some one acting against Israel but I think US is merely trying to stay away from West Asian issues, that is the reason it abstained from voting instead of voting against Israel. What is your opinion on this?

Thanks Vignesh.Actually Trump has advocated a shift in policy.So i used that to base this argument. But you are right too, there is nothing official till now.

But IR might see some serious shifts due to Trump so i think this is something which will be quite dynamic in coming times.
Yeah we have to wait for further updates from both sides :)

Hey Samiksha, so if i have understood correctly, your main problem is with content, right?
Samrat K

firstly one should have different dimensions on any issue with complete indepth knowledge about the issue. then breaking it into heads like intro, body, conclusion and sub heads under each head to present the content in good manner is what required. only job any beginner should do is to read read read as much as possible on various issues and understand it in various dimensions possible.

see Samiksha , it will never happen that one day you will get up and feel that now i am ready to write answers.its something which will require trial and error.So i suggest that each day as Deepanshu sir gives question you should read about it for 20-25 minutes and then try to write on it.Gradually you can shift yo writing spontaneously.Cause UPSC syllabus can never be covered in broadest dimensions.So don’t wait for a moment where you feel that oh now my syllabus is over and i can write, cause that moment will never come.Just start posting it here, people will peer review it if you say I will do it to and thats how you will learn. Hope it helped :)

Ohh it's good to know one more civil engineer. No I didn't cause it's syllabus is too vast, it will take one year to complete only civil engineering so when you'll going to prepare for g.s. Anyway It's my personal view. But if anyone want to take it go for it.

  4. Preventing the next health crisis A failure of govemance Preventing, the next health crisis S. UBHODEEP


  5. Context OPolicy responses -crucial to tackle the rising incidence of obesity India has a lot to do to tackle nutrition challenges 26 million children suffer from wasting (a low weight-for-height ratio) - second highest number of obese children in the world B/w 1980and 2015, obesity doubled for children and tripled for adults Additional 2.6 million children will be obese in India by 2025- non reversable UBHODEEP


  6. Impact: -Rising obesity is putting pressure on already fragile health systems in India by posing a high such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and some cancers. -high burden of premature mortality lifetime of health problems Research has shown that early warning signs for fatty liver disease can be found in children as young -heart disease and diabetes impose high burdens of catastrophic health expenditure, result in a loss of livelihoods and crush people into poverty. UBHODEEP


  7. Need: OAssurance of adequate nutrition (usually interpreted as dietary calories) and appropriate nutrition (the right balance of nutrients). Policy response has to move from "food security" to "nutrition security" Ostep up its efforts to fight overweight and obesity just as it has been doing with wasting and stunting. Durgency to take public health measures. Dlooks ambitiously toward a universal health coverage system where everyone can access quality health services that are free of financial burden UBHODEEP


  8. to garner the political will to drive "best buys" such as sugar taxes and mass media campaigns on healthy diets Policy responses - include agricultural systems that promote crop diversity (to enable dietary diversity) Regulatory and fiscal measures (to decrease the availability, affordability and promotion of unhealthy foods, while making healthy foods more accessible) Measures: ban the sale of junk food in and around schools. Lancet study on India - higher taxes on junk food can actually lead those on lower incomes to live healthier lives UBHODEEP


  9. OCheck- sale of Junk foods. Counselling and care are needed-ways of managing "poor lifestyle choices", obesity management Olndia should link obesity and undernutrition and treat them as twinned challenges to be jointly addressed under the universal health coverage umbrella. India will be in a better position to fulfil the promise of universal health coverage if it disrupts the cycle whereby poverty leads to NCDs and vice versa. S. UBHODEEP

  11. two standard excuses solution who do we talk to in Pakistan, and the other, what is the point of speaking to anyone in Kashmir if they are controlled by Pakistan? Need to find people to speak with in Pakistan and in Kashmir. Azaadi means accommodation, dignity, honour and ustice to them. That is the minimum the Kashmiri should get. Beyond that, if you have the imagination, the government should consider proposals of the past, like on autonomy.
