Shameful Flight: The Last Years of the British Empire in India
Britain's precipitous and ill-planned disengagement from India in 1947--condemned as a "shameful flight" by Winston Churchill--had a truly catastrophic effect on South Asia, leaving hundreds of thousands of people dead in its wake and creating a legacy of chaos, hatred, and war that has lasted over half a century.
Ranging from the fall of Singapore in 1942 to the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948, Shameful Flight provides a vivid behind-the-scenes look at Britain's decision to divest itself from the crown jewel of its empire. Stanley Wolpert, a leading authority on Indian history, paints memorable portraits of all the key participants, including Gandhi, Churchill, Attlee, Nehru, and Jinnah, with special focus on British viceroy, Lord Louis Mountbatten. Wolpert places the blame for the catastrophe largely on Mountbatten, the flamboyant cousin of the king, who rushed the process of nationhood along at an absurd pace. The viceroy's worst blunder was the impetuous drawing of new border lines through the middle of Punjab and Bengal. Virtually everyone involved advised Mountbatten that to partition those provinces was a calamitous mistake that would unleash uncontrollable violence. Indeed, as Wolpert shows, civil unrest among Muslims, Hindus, and Sikhs escalated as Independence Day approached, and when the new boundary lines were announced, arson, murder, and mayhem erupted. Partition uprooted over ten million people, 500,000 to a million of whom died in the ensuing inferno.
Here then is the dramatic story of a truly pivotal moment in the history of India, Pakistan, and Britain, an event that ignited fires of continuing political unrest that still burn in South Asia.

Virgin Trip to America – Went with my loved ones (family n wife) on a package tour (a 40 ppl strong group) over a period of 12 days to California; it is the third-largest state in the United States in size, after Alaska and Texas. It’s a tormenting long distance flight of 17 hrs to and 21 hrs back from LA (our 1st stop at Tom Bradely international airport) but it’s all worth it. Overalll it’s a fantastic experience for all of us; felt the warmth hospitability and amicability of the locals there, great culture, accompanied by breathtaking landscapes along the way and not forgetting the crazy shopping spree we had in all 3 factory outlets that our tour guide brought us to. lol. We stopped by Los Angeles, Nevada, Fresno, San Francisco, a few cities to name.. Our itinerary covered famous landmarks like Las Vegas, Santa Monica, Fisherman Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge, Grand Canyon, Hollywood walk of fame and lots more, not to mentioned rides and time spent at Disney land, California Adventure Park and Universal Studios were truly enjoyable. Weather was fine and relatively cool during our period of visit.
It’s without doubt a lovely country and I relish the opportunity to head back there again.

Governmental and international lending agencies, as well as private sector firms, who engage in international trade, have long been concerned with detecting and determining the magnitude of abnormal pricing in international trade. To detect such abnormal pricings, we present a framework analyzing millions of import/export transactions between the U.S. and Russia. The objectives of this study are to estimate the economic impact of over-invoiced/under-invoiced Russian imports/exports from/to the U.S. and to determine if capital movement/capital flight through trade is due to money laundering, tax evasion or some sort of portfolio consideration. Our results lead us to conclude that capital movement through trade in this case can be attributed to either money laundering and/or tax evasion.
