Military tensions in the disputed region of Kashmir have erupted in recent
weeks, with India and Pakistan painting different versions of events.
One thing we do know for certain is that an Indian pilot, identified as Wing Commander Abhinandan, was captured by Pakistan aft
er his plane was shot down in a dogfight earlier this week between Pakistani and Indian warplanes over the ceasefire line in Kashmir.
He was due to be handed back to India on Friday afternoon, at a famous border post in the village of Wagah.
While Indian-controlled Kashmir and Pakistani-controlled Kashmir are separate
d by a 435-mile de facto border known as the Line of Control (LoC), Wagah village sits on the international fron
tier to the south between the Pakistani city of Lahore and the Indian city of Amritsar.
Wagah straddles the border — with the eastern half in India and the western half in Paki
stan — and sits on the Grand Trunk Road, one of the main overland routes between the two nations.
Pakistani rangers (L) and Indian security forces (R) perform the daily Beating Retreat ceremony at Wagah in August 2017.
The border post has taken on a symbolic role in the decades-long conflict over Kashmir, despite be
ing outside the disputed region, thanks to a daily military parade known as the Beating Retreat ceremony.
Every evening there for 60 years, Pakistan’s Rangers and India’s Border Securit
y Force have taken part in a lowering-of-the-flags ceremony before sunset, typically around 4 p.m. local time.
”Green Book” won best picture at the Oscars, marking the final twist on a night of historic firsts, filled with suspense until the final prize.
Despite controversies surrounding the film, and many outspoken critics, the per
iod drama about race relations in the 1960s felt like a more conventional best-picture choi
ce than its two top rivals, both of which had to overcome key hurdles: “Black Panther” represented the fi
rst superhero movie to earn such recognition, while “Roma” not only would have been the first foreign-lan
guage winner, but was likely hobbled by those who still see its distributor, Netflix, as an upstart in the movie world.
The Oscars compensated for a host-free ceremony with a nigh
t of breakthroughs, moving briskly through the categories in a concerted effort to sh
orten the run time, amid a night marked by greater inclusiveness and that spread the wealth among the nominees.
Award voters extended honors to a number of blockbusters, including “Black Panther,” which
earned several technical awards; and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the biography of Queen and the band’s fron
tman, Freddie Mercury, earned four Oscars — the most of any film — including Rami Malek’s first for the central role.
It’s hard to say that China entered a new cycle of credit expansion,” said Zhang Ming, chief eco
nomist at Ping An Securities. “For the whole year, the overall financing growth and money supply is expected to stabilize.”
Fast credit expansion means higher pressure on companies to repay debt and interest, and the space for sustainable credit growth i
s limited, given the current leverage level. Total outstanding debt has exceeded 250 percent of GDP, Zhang said.
The good news is that credit has been channeled effectively into the production sector, such as manuf
acturing and high-tech, and the healthier credit structure can support the overall economic r
estructuring reform, said Ruan Jianhong, head of the central bank’s statistics and analysis department.
