    Dalai Lama should be conferred Bharat Ratna: BJP leader Shanta Kumar writes to PM Modi

    BJP veteran Shanta Kumar has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him that Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, be conferred the Bharat Ratna. In his letter, the former Himachal Pradesh chief minister has also batted for raising the Tibet issue in the United Nations.

    By honouring the Dalai Lama with the highest civilian award, India will be honouring itself, Kumar said.

    He said the then Congress government "committed a sin" in 1950 when China was allowed to take over Tibet.

    "Today, China has been isolated in the world," Shanta said, adding it is a golden opportunity to correct the terrible mistake of 1950.

    “With India taking these two steps of honouring the Dalai Lama and raising the Tibet issue in the UN, China will be completely exposed in the world,” the BJP leader said.

    Israel discovers 3,000-year-old fortified building

    Israeli archaeologists have discovered a 3,000-year-old fortified building, the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) said on Wednesday. The rare fort was uncovered during an archaeological excavation led by the IAA at a small hill in the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights.

    The 1.5-metre wide fort walls, built of large basalt boulders, encompassed the hill. The complex was built at a strategic location on the hilltop, above a canyon, overlooking the region, at a spot where it was possible to cross a river.

    According to the researchers, the fort was probably manned by the Geshurites, who ruled the southern and central Golan, carrying out diplomatic relations with King David, who ruled the united monarchy of Israel and Judah.
