India-China agree to end Sikkim stand-Off

International Desk: China and India have agreed to end a lengthy stand-off at the Sikkim border that began in June, said the government today. The breakthrough was reached by diplomatic talks, India said.

“On this basis, expeditious disengagement of border personnel at the face-off site at Doklam has been agreed to and is on-going,” said the Foreign Ministry.

The breakthrough comes ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s trip to China in a few weeks for a summit of the BRICS group of nations. Indian sources said that soldiers from both sides have begun withdrawing, but the process of removing them will not be completed today.

The conflict, which was the worst in decades, saw 300 soldiers from each side, confronting each other on the remote Doklam plateau in the Eastern Himalayas. India ignored repeated baiting and aggressive rhetoric by China to insist it would seek diplomatic channels to resolve the tension.

India had also urged that both sides withdraw troops to engage in dialogue; Beijing insisted on the unilateral pulling out of India’s soldiers.

We now feel unbeatable at home’

The most celebrated all-rounder, Shakib Al Hasan, who is the top ranked all-rounder in all three formats of the game gave his view on Bangladesh’s change in mentality in an interview with the newspaper, The Guardian of England.

“Previously the mindset was to draw against big teams – try to play five days, make a draw,” he told The Guardian.

“But there is no shortage of self-belief at this moment… Now we feel that we are very much unbeatable at home – doesn’t matter who we are playing against. So this is the belief that makes a team a very good team, and a winning team

Shakib has not always been considered among the best all-rounders in the Test format despite being top-ranked on all formats of the game. However, that’s not a slight on him since Bangladesh hardly features in Test matches.

Since Shakib’s Test debut in 2007, he has featured in 49 of the 56 Tests Bangladesh have played. During that period, teams like Australia and England have played 114 an131 Tests respectively.

That’s a huge gap in ‘Test action’ for Bangladesh compared to the top sides in cricket.

Shakib said: “It is frustrating, we can see the difference. But that’s how it is. We can’t do anything.”

Depression may be as risky as obesity and cholesterol

Health Desk:A study has found that the risk of death by cardiovascular diseases due to depression may be just as great as that posed by high cholesterol levels and obesity,

Worldwide 350 million people are affected by depression, according to the World Health Organisation.

“Our study shows that the risk of a fatal cardiovascular disease due to depression is almost as great as that due to elevated cholesterol levels or obesity,” said Karl-Heinz Ladwig, professor at Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany.

Depression accounted for nearly 15 per cent of the cardiovascular deaths.

“That is comparable to the other risk factors, such as hypercholesterolemia, obesity and smoking,” Ladwig said, noting that these factors cause 8.4 to 21.4 per cent of the cardiovascular deaths.

In the study, the team included 3,428 male patients between the ages of 45 and 74 years and observed their development over a period of 10 years.

The researchers analysed the relationship between depression and other risk factors like tobacco smoke, high cholesterol levels, obesity or hypertension and how big a role does each factor play?

The results show that only high blood pressure and smoking are associated with a greater risk.

The study was recently published in the journal Atherosclerosis.
