*) Somalia PM accuses president of 'coup' attempt as elections spat deepens A political crisis in Somalia has escalated as the president suspended the prime minister, who blasted the move as an "attempted coup" and asked armed forces to follow his orders. The exchange came a day after President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed sparred with Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble over sluggish preparations for elections. Relations between the pair have long been frosty, but the latest move stokes fears over the country's stability as it struggles to stage elections and fight an insurgency. *) India blocks foreign funds for Mother Teresa's charity on Christmas India has terminated a permit that allowed a Christian organisation, the Missionaries of Charity, to receive foreign funds.

As India grapples with the possibility of a new wave due to the Omicron variant, the Centre on Saturday, 25 December, announced an expansion of the national vaccination drive. In a late-night address on Christmas, PM Modi announced that those aged between 15-18 years of age will now be eligible for vaccinations from 3 January. “Precautionary doses” of a COVID vaccine will also be administered to frontline workers and those who are 60 years and above with comorbidities will be administered doses from 10 January. Though the decision to expand vaccination coverage has been widely welcomed, four critical questions regarding them have emerged: First, why call it a precautionary dose and not a booster dose? Does this signal that the third shot will be Covishield or Covaxin? This leads us to the second question, how effective is a third dose of the same vaccine? Third, given that Covaxin is the only vaccine in production to be cleared for inoculating those under 18, is it worrying that there is no publicly available data of the trials? And lastly, will the restriction on additional doses for those over the age of 60 cause problems? Guests: Dr Chandrakand Lahairya, an epidemiologist and health systems expert. Dr Rakesh Mishra, former director of the Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology.

“People are running from a system that's clearly organised by cynical malevolent types in the financial system and they're running straight into the arms of a system which is organised by a different group of predators… that's the fear I have with crypto.”— Matt StollerLocation: Washington D.C.Date: Saturday 4th DecemberProject: American Economic Liberties Project & Coin CenterRole: Director of Research & Research Director2021 has been a monumental year for Bitcoin for many reasons. As a result, Bitcoin has matured in the minds of casual observers: it is now seriously viewed as a viable alternative to other forms of money. Whilst this is a validation for proponents, such a situation is like a fever dream for those who believe in the primacy of the state.China has banned private digital assets. The IMF is concerned about the impact of digital assets on financial stability. On Wednesday, the lead economist at the IMF stated that urgent international coordination is required to implement regulation. India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has echoed these comments.There are also concerns from more vocal advocates for democracy. Such people argue there is no such thing as deregulation: someone is always making the rules. The decision is whether such rules are made within the purview of collective agreement, or by unelected and unaccountable powers. This community thinks Bitcoin undermines the state and thereby democracy.Bitcoin is rightly or wrongly associated with an anarcho capitalist ideology. Yet, the Bitcoin community is a broad church. There is a growing sense that a silent majority who still believe in government, but also see Bitcoin as a powerful check on centralised control. They view Bitcoin as second amendment rights for money. In this interview, I talk to Matt Stoller: author of ‘Goliath: The 100-Year War Between Monopoly Power and Democracy', about his recent newsletter post ‘Cryptocurrencies: A Necessary Scam?'. To make the case for Bitcoin I am joined by Coin Center's Peter Van Valkenburgh. We discuss the issue of power consolidation, the current crisis with democracy, and the monopoly of money.

The Kashi Vishwanath Corridor is being spoken very highly of, a wonderful gift of Prime Minister Modi to Kashi, but there is a section of traditionalists who are unhappy with this renovation.

On the sidelines of COP26, Nepali Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba met his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi as part of an effort to find a way to rebuild ties between Kathmandu and New Delhi--which had grown sour in the recent years, with a boundary dispute between the two as its low point. Around the same time, China trumpeted a donation of 1.6 million COVID vaccine doses to Nepal, as the country stays around a 30% vaccination rate. Discussions of Nepal often reduce it to a country sitting between two great powers—especially as relations between those two great powers worsen. Or, perhaps, as a strategically important country—but one whose history and people are rarely brought up. Amish Raj Mulmi's All Roads Lead North: Nepal's Turn to China (Context, 2021) published internationally by Hurst early next year, helps to fill in these critical details. Combining insights from centuries of history, to on-the-ground reporting along the China-Nepal border, Mulmi gives a full representation of Nepal's long relationship with its neighbors. Helen Li, freelance writer and journalist, joins Amish and me for this interview. Helen was stranded in Nepal during the COVID pandemic, and saw firsthand the interconnected between Nepal, India and China. In this interview, Amish, Helen and I talk about Nepal and China: what connects their countries, their economies, and their peoples. We talk about historical links, Tibetan exiles, investment, and what India thinks about all this. Amish Raj Mulmi's writings have been published in The Himalayan Arc: Journeys East of South- east and The Best Asian Speculative Fiction 2018; and Al Jazeera; Roads & Kingdoms; Himal Southasian; India Today; The Kathmandu Post and The Record.

Russian president Vladimir Putin has held high level talks with India's PM Narendra Modi. On the agenda were defence deals involving India purchasing Russian jets, and we discuss the visit with Snehesh Alex Philip, senior associate writer for The Print based in Delhi. We also get the US perspective on the meeting from Michael Kugelman, who is senior associate for south Asia at the Wilson Center think tank. Also in the programme, the BBC's Ivana Davidovic investigates America's private adoption industry, and finds out about some of the problems faced by those seeking to adopt, and those sometimes pressured into giving up their children. Plus, we hear from Julia Poliscanova, who is e-mobility lead at Transport and Environment, about concerns that cars powered by synthetic, or so called 'e-fuels', may emit as many poisonous fumes as those with fossil fuel engines.
A strain of Hindu nationalism, Hindutva, has grown in global prominence since 2014 under Indian prime minister Narendra Modi's BJP party. Now tensions are rising in the Indian community, both here and internationally, between those supporting Hindutva, and those concerned it promotes racism and Islamophobia.
In September 2020, India's Parliament passed three farm reform bills that the government claimed would radically change the way in which agriculture was practiced in the country. Yet, just over twelve months later, the same government announced its intention to repeal those laws—a major concession to large-scale, dogged protests launched by farmers in northern India. The repeal of the farm reform laws, hailed by many observers as a short-term victory for struggling farmers, has also raised complex questions about the future of agriculture in a rapidly urbanizing India. To consider some of these questions, Milan is joined on the podcast this week by Harish Damodaran. Harish is a senior fellow at the Centre for Policy Research in Delhi, where he is enjoying a sabbatical from his day job as national rural affairs and agriculture editor at The Indian Express. Harish and Milan talk about the state of Indian agriculture, the motivations behind the farm reform laws, and the complex reasons the government eventually withdrew them. Plus, the two discuss the next stage of farmers' demands and what this setback does to the larger push for agrarian reform.

A movement to support Indian farmers scored a win this past week. The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, announced plans to roll back three controversial laws that had sparked protests for more than a year. The Sikh community in California had rallied behind this movement and staged several marches here in the Bay Area, including one that stopped traffic on the Bay Bridge. Many said they wanted to take a stand against privatization. Some wanted to stand in solidarity with relatives back home. And now, it seems that these continued demonstrations have paid off.
