Manmohan Singh invites Asif Ali Zardari & Yousaf Raza Gilani for Cricket Match (India vs Pakistan) & ofcourse Peace Talk.

In a replay of cricket diplomacy that could help resume their stalled peace process, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Friday invited Pakistani leaders Asif Ali Zardari and Yusuf Raza Gilani to see the India-Pakistan World Cup semi-final at Mohali March 30 -- the first cricket clash between them after the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

India is also offering 5,000 visas to Pakistani fans to watch the match at the Punjab Cricket Association stadium in Mohali.

In a statement, Zardari welcomed the invite, but noted that the final decision will be taken after the Pakistani prime minister returns from his official visit to Uzbekistan Sunday.

"It gives me great pleasure to invite you to visit Mohali (in Punjab) and join me and millions of fans from our two countries to watch the match," Manmohan Singh wrote in identical letters to both Pakistani leaders, delivered through the Pakistan High Commission.

Manmohan Singh said he and his wife Gursharan Kaur will also be at the match venue.

"I propose to be at Mohali to watch the World Cup semi-final match between India and Pakistan... There is huge excitement over the match and we are all looking forward to a great game of cricket, that will be a victory for sport," the letter said.

Billed as the game of the 2011 World Cup, bitter rivals and cricket-mad nations India and Pakistan will fight March 30 for a place in the final. Both countries have not played each other since the Mumbai terror attack of 2008.

The prime minister has invited Gilani's wife too.

"It gives me great pleasure to invite you and your gracious wife to visit Mohali and join me, my wife and the millions of fans from our two countries to watch the match," the letter to the Pakistani prime minister says.

Thousands of Pakistani cricket fans are expected to watch the match with India planning to give 5,000 visas for the match.

India and Pakistan have not played cricket against each other since 10 Pakistani terrorists sneaked into Mumbai in November 2008 and slaughtered 166 people -- almost triggering a war between the two countries.

Pakistan's envoy to Britain, Wajid Shamshul Hasan, quickly applauded the Indian invitation.

"It is a great goodwill gesture," Hasan told CNN-IBN television channel. "It (the semi-final) is not just a cricket match. It is a great occasion."

Manmohan Singh's invitation is a repeat of similar cricket diplomacy on two earlier occasions. But Zardari and Gilani would be the first civilian leaders of Pakistan to get such invites.

In 1987, Gen. Zia ul-Haq visited Jaipur at Rajiv Gandhi's invitation. Almost two decades later, in 2005, then president Pervez Musharraf flew to New Delhi on Manmohan Singh's invitation.

Both those visits helped ease tensions in India-Pakistan relations.

The announcement of Manmohan Singh's invitation came soon after the Pakistani team led by Shahid Afridi arrived in Chandigarh Friday.

Pakistani players including Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Akmal, Younis Khan, Umar Gul and Shoaib Akhtar reached the hotel Taj with scores of police and other security personnel providing them cover.

Security personnel lined both sides of the stretch between the Chandigarh airport and the hotel.

"We have made foolproof security cover both inside and outside the hotel where the Pakistan team is staying. We have issued do's and don'ts to the players and officials. We have told them to inform us if they want to go out," Chandigarh Senior Superintendent of Police H.S. Doon said.

Just before the cricket diplomacy became public knowledge, Pakistan's high commissioner to India, Shahid Malik, said an India-Pakistan cricket match was good for both countries.

A cricket fan himself, Malik said the two countries also needed to move ahead in other areas. He urged New Delhi to issue the maximum visas to Pakistanis eager to see the Mohali semi-final.

lets wait for 30th March India vs Pakistan (World Cup 2011 2nd Semifinal) at Mohali Punjab(India)

An Interview with Julian Assange & some cables on India by WikiLeaks

Internet is a great spying machine: Julian Assange::

website URL(

Dubbing the internet as the world's greatest spying machine, the co-founder of whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks Jullian Assange said that it's an obstacle to free speech, according to a media report.

Addressing a group of students at Cambridge University, Assange said that the web could allow greater government transparency and better co-operation between activists, the Guardian reported. However, he added, that it also gave authorities their best ever opportunity to monitor and catch dissidents.

"While the Internet has in some ways an ability to let us know to an unprecedented level what government is doing, and to let us co-operate with each other to hold repressive governments and repressive corporations to account, it is also the greatest spying machine the world has ever seen," the Guardian quoted Assange as saying.

"It [the web] is not a technology that favours freedom of speech. It is not a technology that favours human rights. It is not a technology that favours civil life. Rather it is a technology that can be used to set up a totalitarian spying regime, the likes of which we have never seen," he said.

"Or, on the other hand, taken by us, taken by activists, and taken by all those who want a different trajectory for the technological world, it can be something we all hope for," he added.

According to the former computer hacker, cables released by WikiLeaks played a key role in both fomenting unrest in the Middle East and forcing the U.S. government not to back former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.

The event was reportedly well attended with students, but the university decided to keep it out of media coverage.

WikiLeaks' U.S. embassy cables related to India are currently being published in the Indian news media. Similar leaks in the western news media had created a stir recently.
Some Cables related to India being published in India..

2.WikiLeaks: Congress bought MPs for trust vote over nuclear deal-(NDTV)

3. WikiLeaks: Indian names in Swiss bank disclosure to WikiLeaks?-(TOI)

Fresh Fire at Japan Nuclear Plant No.3(Fukushima)

Japan races to avert a catastrophe after fire broke out on Wednesday at a nuclear plant that has sent low levels of radiation wafting into Tokyo, prompting some people to flee the capital and triggering growing international alarm at the escalating crisis.

A fresh fire broke out at a reactor of Japan's quake-hit Fukushima No 1 nuclear power plant early today, operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said.An employee confirmed smoke was pouring from the roof of the number-four reactor at the plant, a TEPCO spokesman told reporters.

"We immediately informed local authorities and the fire department about it," the spokesman said. "We are battling the fire now." 

A blaze and explosion hit the same reactor yesterday, causing a crack in the roof. The government has separately reported apparent damage to part of the container shielding the number-two reactor at Fukushima 250 kilometres northeast of Tokyo.Japan is frantically working to avert a nuclear meltdown after Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami cut power to the ageing plant and knocked out cooling systems. On Saturday an explosion blew apart the building surrounding the plant's number-one reactor but the seal around the reactor itself remained intact, officials said.

On Monday, shortly after Prime Minister Naoto Kan said the plant was still in an "alarming" state, a blast at its number-three reactor shook the facility, injuring 11 people and sending plumes of smoke billowing into the sky.Late Monday TEPCO said fuel rods at the number-two reactor were almost fully exposed after a cooling pump there temporarily failed.
