I recently visited a Rohingya refugee camp in New Delhi's Kanchan Kunj area. The only proof of identity they have is a card provided by the UNHCR, which also looks into their grievances and immediate needs.
Myanmar post-April will have the military in the doorway, Suu Kyi controlling the floor, a puppet president handling the seat, and speakers trying to make sense of the house. Unless Suu Kyi trusts her party enough to delegate, and step back from micromanaging the government, the entire system will collapse. It will also prove fatal for the country.

In the north of Myanmar fighting between the army and ethnic rebels has forced tens of thousands of civilians to flee. As a manager with IPPF's SPRINT initiative, I visited the state of Kachin where my organisation -- along with the Myanmar Maternal and Child Welfare Association -- is providing life-saving sexual and reproductive health services to the most vulnerable and deprived.
The Rohingya Muslim situation offers Pakistan two distinct choices: It can either sever diplomatic ties with Myanmar over the "slow genocide," or recognize the Jewish State of Israel as extending to its pre-1967 borders. A failure to act now will confirm Pakistan's status as a money-stuffed mouthpiece of the Arab League.

Truth, it is said, is often the biggest casualty in a conflict. We will never quite know exactly how successful the operations of the Indian Army in Myanmar were. Some sources said 20 militants were killed; others said the number lay between 50 and 100. The Army claimed two camps were busted, and while they "neutralised" the camp near Moreh, they found the one in the Northern region had already been vacated. Firing continued for 45 minutes in which they claim a "significant" number of militants were killed.
Many Indians probably do not feel much sympathy for Rohingya Muslims, shunted out of their homes in Myanmar and turned away at border after border. Newly assertive in our nationhood, we are voicing concerns about illegal Bangladeshi immigrants seeping in through our porous borders. We are - if the increasingly voluble political rhetoric and acrimonious inter-faith clashes in our country are any bellwether - worried about religious extremism and Islamic radicalisation.
In the backdrop of the increasing frequency and severity of natural disasters, climate change is expected to expose millions to large-scale displacement and forced migration. There is a growing consensus that climate migrants should be considered within the framework of international laws.

My preparation for an assignment to a rebel base in Myanmar's Sagaing Division began seven months in advance, soon after receiving confirmation from the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), a banned insurgent outfit in Assam. Its elusive chief of staff, Paresh Baruah, one of the most wanted men in the country, had warned that the journey would be strenuous and fraught with risks. He advised me to walk daily for at least 5 miles, in the hills if possible, but did not disclose exactly where I would be taken.
