US seeks clarification from India on Ford Foundation issue
"We are aware that the (Indian) Ministry of Home Affairs suspended the registration of Greenpeace India and has placed the Ford Foundation on a prior permission watch list," the State Department Deputy Acting Spokesperson, Marie Harf, said. "We remain concerned about the difficulties caused to civil society organisations by the manner in which the Foreign Contributions Regulations Act has been applied," she said in response to a question"We are concerned that this recent ruling limits the necessary and critical debate within Indian society and we are seeking a clarification on this issue with the appropriate Indian authorities," Harf said. In a crackdown on foreign fundings to NGOs, the Union Home Ministry has put the Ford Foundation of the US on its "watch list" and ordered that all funds coming from the international organisation have to be routed only with its nod due to "national security concerns". The Home Ministry said it has decided to keep a watch on all activities funded by Ford Foundation and by exercising the powers conferred under Section 46 of Foreign Contribution Regulation Act 2010, directed Reserve Bank of India to ensure that funds coming from it be brought to the notice of the Home Ministry. The Ministry said it wanted to ensure that funds coming from Ford Foundation is utilised for "bonafide welfare activities without compromising on concerns of national interest and security". The move came after Gujarat government asked the Home Ministry to take action against Ford Foundation as it alleged that the US-based organisation was "interfering in the internal affairs" of the country and also "abetting communal disharmony" through an NGO run by social activist Teesta Setalvad. Early this month, the Home Ministry had frozen seven bank accounts of Greenpeace India and barred it from receiving foreign funds for allegedly violating FCRA and 'prejudicially' affecting the country's public and economic interests.

Viswanathan Anand beats Michael Adams to jump to second spot in Shamkir
Viswanathan Anand crashed through the defences of Michael Adams of England to jump to sole second spot in the Shamkir Chess 2015 tournament, on Friday. It was sheer power and simplicity from Anand that saw him cruise to his second win in the strongest tournament of the year and the Indian ace can now train his sight to catch world champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway in the last two remaining rounds. Carlsen meanwhile defeated Vladimir Kramnik of Russia to take his tally up to 5.5 points out of a possible seven. This was Norwegian's fourth victory in seven games and the way it came might have sent warning signals to team Kramnik. Fabiano Caruana of Italy was the other big winner of the day cruising to his second straight victory. On the receiving end was erstwhile leader Wesley So of United States who is now getting a taste of how hard it is to be consistent against world elite. In other two games of this 100000 Euros prize money tournament, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov could not break the solid defences of Azerbaijani compatriot Rauf Mamedov and had to settle for a draw while Maxime Vachier-Lagrave of France signed peace with Anish Giri of Holland. As things stand, Carlsen seems to be running away with the title on 5.5 points while Anand on 4.5 is a point behind him. Wesley So and Fabiano Caruana are close behind Anand on four points each while Mamedyarov is sole fifth on 3.5 points. Mamedov, Vachier-Lagrave and Giri are on joint sixth spot on three points apiece while Kramnik is now on ninth spot with just 2.5 points. A position the Russian is unfaliar with for many years now. Adams on two is still on the last spot. Anand was in his element out of an English opening as white. Sacrificing an exchange with white pieces the Indian picked up two pawns as compensation and then tormented Adams for a long time till he cracked. In the end, Adams gave his queen for two rooks but with extra pawns the position was just lost. Anand wrapped it up in quick time. Just some days before the start of the tournament Carlsen had mentioned that Kramnik is the toughest opponent for him. However it did not show in the seventh round as the Norwegian comprehensively outplayed the Russian with white pieces. Caruana's victory ended Wesley So's aspirations of winning the tournament even though he was in sole lead after four rounds. The Italian was perfect in his technique. Results round 7: V Anand (Ind, 4.5) beat Michael Adams (Eng, 2); Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (Fra, 3) drew with Anish Giri (Ned, 3); Magnus Carlsen (Nor, 5.5) beat Vladimir Kramnik (Rus, 2.5); Fabiano Caruana (Ita, 4) beat Wesley So (USA, 4); Shakhriyar Mamedyarov (Aze, 3.5) drew with Rauf Mamedov (Aze, 3).
