After having lived in the United States, going back home to India in 2013 means readjusting to more than modest dress and unwanted stares. It means confronting a past I'd rather forget.

Imagine, for a moment, the following scenario. In 2017 Britain votes narrowly to remain within the European Union, despite the Prime Minister having achieved little in attempting to renegotiate the… Continue reading

This is what happens when you make service providers (in this case banks) responsible, even partly, for the actions of their clients. They will do exactly as you hoped, and reduce dealings with criminals. But they will also certainly go overboard and deny basic services to law abiding people whose only fault is that they tick the "wrong boxes".

Last year international banking giant HSBC suddenly closed the bank accounts of several prominent British Muslims. Why?

This is an outrageous ruling. 
A woman cut out of her mother's will is awarded a £164,000 inheritance in a case experts think could prove to be a landmark ruling.

wow.  Perhaps there is more to the case than the ruling suggests but it seems a bizarre ruling given the daughter's age (no longer a child), the apparent years of separation, the recency of the will revision in relation to the mum's death, etc.

India is learning from South America here :(
A 14-year-old girl who became pregnant after she was raped has been denied an abortion by the Gujarat High Court in India.

Why would you arrest them ?
The three Chechen women would contact IS militants on social media, asking for money to make the journey to Syria. Between them, they received more than $3,100 before being caught.

When my daughter was young and she would get upset at our academic demands of her, I would tell her all the time, "Just be glad I'm not an Asian father..." 

One time, at a band event in elementary school, one of the small handful of Asian students in our NE Ohio suburb was outside of the auditorium, getting a severe lecture from her father as the girl cried. 

I pointed it out to my daughter and said, "see - the expectations are completely different... do you know that girl?" 

"Yes," my daughter said, "she is one of the best musicians in our class."

I don't understand her, but it's necessary that we should. Or do we just wait for people to grow up ?

Great share, thanks +Tirthankar Dubey. Anyway in the Europeans going down there represent a negligible quantity in this problem. I'd worry more about those who do their evil right here under the cover of our democracies. They don't even get a chance to get either killed or purified by reality.

It will all depend on how smart the regulators are. 
There's one sure way to know if a bank was risking a lot of money.
