July expiry, volatility and new lifetime highs in the week ahead
It was an interesting four-day week which just went by with markets losing on the first two days and then bouncing back on the remaining two days.

The broader markets saw BSE100, BSE200 and BSE500 lose 0.31 per cent, 0.40 per cent and 0.37 per cent, respectively. BSEMIDCAP lost 0.47 per cent, while BSESMALLCAP lost 0.14 per cent.

Defence and security come first (Column: Spy's Eye)
In the context of the pandemic affecting the world, India being amongst the worst impacted countries, the fundamentals of State-Citizen relationship in a democratic dispensation have come under the focus in terms of defining where the nation's energies and resources would be devoted first. The health emergency caused by Covid-19 has been with us for more than a year -- and still persistent -- leading to enormous loss of lives, destruction of employment and a sharp rise of poverty posing the unprecedented challenge before the ruling dispensation of reviving a derailed economy.

Their Crimes Don't Count! (Column: B-Town)
Film folk of yore preferred to keep their private lives to themselves. There was little exposure to the public in real life. All their communication or keeping in touch happened through fan mail. Yes, once every week, you heard a popular star anchoring a film songs slot on the radio which catered to the army personnel. Not only the army, but all music lovers also heard the programme and loved the stars even more.

Coexistence, a unifying factor for Indians (Opinion)
For most political parties, sociologists and psephologists what a common Indian on the street thinks matters most. It is an insight into a common mans psyche, which allows them to strategies and formulate new plans and narratives. Though the political parties are able to set the narrative for their own narrow agendas yet they are unable to control the common perceptions and thinking among the populace.

South Asia in India's focus (Column: Spy's Eye)
Developments in Afghanistan marking a steady rise of Taliban's hold on that country -- this resulted in the evacuation of staff from the Indian Consulate at Kandahar -- confirms many readings on how the Pak-Afghan belt would shape up in the aftermath of the withdrawal of American troops from the messy theatre, the scene of an unending 'war on terror' launched by the US in Afghanistan way back in the wake of 9/11.

Why are Sikhs of Kashmir angry?
Kashmir has historically been a multi religious society, where Kashmiri Muslims, Kashmiri Hindu Pandits and Kashmiri Sikhs have lived with each other for centuries maintaining cordial, harmonious and brotherly relationship. Sikhs of Kashmir, who actually are not historically from Punjab but are believed to be Brahmin and Rajput converts from neighbouring Jammu region and even Kashmir valley are very much an integral part of Kashmiri society.

Taliban's Next Stop: Kabul, Kashmir and Kerala
The speedy advance of the Taliban from northern Afghanistan to Kabul in the eastern section of the country could not have been achieved without the active support of the Pakistani Army. This has been confirmed by none other than the Afghan First Vice President Amrullah Saleh. The question is whether the people of Afghanistan, India and neighbouring countries will allow Taliban to capture Kabul?

Outliers: A Macro and Bond Update (Opinion)
A persistent theme of Indias bond curve is its very attractive steepness even up to mid-duration points. This has allowed for substantial carry plus roll down benefits from a portfolio standpoint. The assumption in this sort of a strategy is that, while bond yields can rise, they should do so relatively modestly and in an orderly fashion for the excess carry and the benefit of roll down to manifest itself.

The resurgent Taliban (Opinion)
in a speech on July 8, US President Joe Biden announced that the American military would complete its withdrawal from Afghanistan by August 31, nearly two weeks before his earlier deadline of September 11. The US pullout from Afghanistan, will end the US longest overseas war, which cost the lives of around 2,300 troops and $825 billion monetarily, is a result of the February 2020 agreement that the former Donald Trump administration negotiated with the Taliban in Doha, Qatar.

Congress needs to give Priyanka a role outside UP (Opinion)
New Delhi, July 11 (IANS) Not long after Priyanka Gandhi Vadra took complete charge of Uttar Pradesh as Congress general secretary and got into campaign mode, the country's attention span was consumed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet her active interventions in Hathras and Sonbhadra got her noticed. And at the peak of the migrant crisis, her offer of buses to transport the affected people to their homes, earned her kudos.

Geopolitical indicators India cannot ignore (Column: Spy's Eye)
The long speech of President Xi Jinping at Tiananmen Square in Beijing on the occasion of the CPC's centenary celebration on July 1 and the address of US President Joe Biden to the joint session of the Congress earlier on April 29 provide significant inputs on the contemporary global scene that was marked by a developing bipolarity between US-led West and the residual of the world of Communism of the Cold War era now led by China.

Can a non-Muslim be forcibly converted to become Muslim in Islam? (Opinion)
Nowadays, there are rumours in social media and newspapers that non-Muslims have been forcibly converted to become Muslim. The nuisance creators are making noise in this regard. But these nuisance creators do not see that whether anyone in India at this time has the power to forcibly convert Hindus to Muslim? And whether he/she will become Muslim, if forcibly converted to do so. Because, to become a Muslim is basically believing in one God (Allah) from the heart and to consider Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to be a true messenger of Allah. A person does not become a Muslim just by reciting the word 'Tawheed (Kalema)' with the tongue and praying 'namaz (salaat)', unless he/she does believe in Tawheed and Prophethood by heart.

Indian stock market to see fireworks on US I-Day (Market Outlook)
The week gone by was quite predictable and had become fairly lacklustre over the first four days. Friday was different and indicated that the coming week would have a different opening and behave differently. BSESENSEX lost 440.37 points or 0.83 per cent to close at 52,484.67 points. NIFTY lost 138.15 points or 0.87 per cent to close at 15,722.20 points. The broader markets saw BSE100, BSE200 and BSE500 lose 0.66 per cent, 0.65 per cent and 0.32 per cent, respectively. BSEMIDCAP was down a mere 0.19 per cent, while BSESMALLCAP was up 2.28 per cent. This indicates that the number of smaller stocks advancing were higher as the Smallcap forms the lowest priced stocks in general in the market. This is the area of concern as retail investors tend to invest in these stocks and they do not have adequate fundamentals.

In a major restructuring like reorganising the Indian Military into Theatre Commands, there will be variation of views between stakeholders and many rounds of discussions on merits and demerits of the existing Force Structure vis-a-vis the proposed one; hence it may not be appropriate to call it a 'Turf War' as has been referred in some media reports.

Pandemic tests organisational leadership (Column: Spy's Eye)
The global health crisis created by Covid-19 has predictably put in focus the role of political rulers of nations across the world but in an all-permeating manner it has also tested leadership in different spheres -- businesses, organisations and institutions in terms of setting apart the brilliant from the ordinary. A true leader not only faces a crisis competently but 'rides the challenge' to take the organisation forward through the difficulty and put it on the path of progress. The first requirement of this role is for the leader to have the combination of 'insight' and 'vision' in order to see the roots of the crisis and determine how to reset the goal through necessary course corrections. The leader has to be comprehensively well-informed about the various facets of the problem and their impact on the business at hand and be in possession of 'business intelligence' about demand, logistics of supply and delivery as well as the new technology that might have become available at that moment.

While commentaries have waxed eloquent on how Sri Lanka's landscape is being transformed, precious little has been done to critically examine whether the average Sri Lankan on the street has actually benefited.

China's biggest challenge: Surviving autocratic Xi
Mao Zedong, it is said, was furious over the slights he had received at the Eighth Party Congress (1956 and 1958) -- the call for collective leadership, the assertions that China would never have a cult of personality, the removal of Mao's thought as the guiding principle for the nation, and the criticisms of adventurism. He ensured the people whom he considered responsible for his slight paid for it dearly, with their lives in some instances.

Market focus back to large caps (Market Outlook)
Markets were on a roll last week and set the tone of revival on the very first day of trading for the week.

BSESENSEX gained 580.59 points or 1.11 per cent to close at 52,925.04 points, while NIFTY gained 177 points or 1.13 per cent to close at 15,683.35 points.
