management consultant by profession I live in Boston and frequent Asia and Far East on business trips. Like most of my ilk, I am also a blogger and hit the blogspace at irregular intervals though. My subjects of interest are wide ranging from China’s debt to Philippines’s maverick rulers and from Pakistan’s missed GDP goals to Sri Lanka’s wounds of civil war.
Like most Americans with expatriate roots, I take keen interest in what is happening in my erstwhile native lands, and also in India, which has given me numerous friends from Silicon Valley, and Babas and Yogis from Haridwar, the Hindu Holy city on the banks of river Ganga.

Going up in Smoke in Pakistan Like drug addiction, smoking has become a major health hazard in Pakistan. Smuggling and illegal local production are depriving the exchequer of huge revenue but there is no visible effort to crack the whip, priming doubts about the hand of Islamist militant groups in illicit cigarette trade as well.

Whether he can make China emerge as the economic and military power house or not, his new title "President for Life" has revived the gory memories of the Cultural Revolution Chairman Mao had perpetuated in his quest for absolute power. Xi's reign may see the world become a more unsure place.
