Arun Jaitley says Pak should draw red line if it wants to initiate dialogue

New Delhi, Nov 6 (ANI): Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said that Pakistan should draw a red line whether it wants to initiate dialogue or talk to those who wish to break India. Speaking at the World Economic Forum in New Delhi, Jaitley said Pakistan should make a conscious choice for a meaningful dialogue between the two countries. India had called off Secretary level talks with Pakistan earlier in August, giving a jolt to renewed diplomatic efforts between the two nuclear-armed neighbours and adding to the troubles of Pakistan's beleaguered government. Jaitley said India wants to normalize the relationship with Pakistan by initiating the dialogue process. Nov 6, 2014

Tribal women encourage youngsters in Tripura to save indigenous art

Tripura, Nov 06 (ANI): Tribal womenfolk encourage youngsters to save indigenous art and spread the rich culture of handmade textiles of Tripura. Realising the looming threat of their art falling into oblivion, a tribal woman, Smriti Rekha Chakma, established a small training centre to save the dying art. Chakma said that the whole idea was to inspire the new generation to learn about the rich culture of the state. Meanwhile, another tribal woman, Pramita Chakma, said that unfortunately the Chakma society has adapted to western attire which is comparatively cheaper than the indigenous one. Each tribal community in Tripura owns a handloom and designs colourful material. Chakma tribal women cover their lower body with a length of cloth wrapped around the waist the ends of which are unstitched, while the upper garment is also stitched out of handloom woven cloth.
