Islamabad, despite the reconciliation efforts by both Indian and Pakistani premiers in the Russian city of Ufa last week, former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf is still blaming New Delhi for its “high-handedness”, a media report said on Monday.



Musharraf, while talking to Ary News, said “the arch rival tried to maintain its high-handedness (in the meeting), but we must not be bullied”.

“We should raise the issue of Samjhauta Express to counter India while taking up the matter of 26/11 Mumbai attacks,” he said, adding “Pakistan should boldly face India”.

Musharraf, 71, further blamed the Nawaz Sharif-led government for not fully backing its military and the paramilitary force, Pakistan Rangers.

The former military ruler praised the military and said they were successfully acting against terrorists in the country, and advocated extension of the current army chief’s tenure.

“Army chief General Raheel Sharif is performing well and he must be given extension of his term,” Musharraf said.

Earlier, Senator Rehman Malik of the opposition Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) criticized the Ufa meeting.

The former interior minister compared Modi to “the Tsar of Russia” as he described how the two state leaders interacted.

Shireen Mazari of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf was equally disturbed at “the silence on the Kashmir issue” and “Indian involvement” in Baluchistan. “Modi raised Mumbai and Sharif agreed to ‘fast track’ the investigations. Not a word on Samjhauta Express (blasts) was uttered by Sharif,” she said.

Smart living is also about smart breathing.

By Himanshu Agarwal

While smart homes are typically about connected and automated devices and appliances, making it a super convenient and comfortable living experience for residents, there is one connection that we often seem to miss when we speak of smart homes -- the inextricable connection with the indoor home environment.

After all, smart living is also about smart breathing. Unless we breathe clean and pure air even within our homes, smart living remains an incomplete aspiration. Therefore, as we pivot big time to a modern lifestyle with nearly 24/7 gadgets, utilities, and network dependency within our homes, a sense of balance with respect to the indoor ambiance must also be attained. And this balance necessarily means breathing pristine, unadulterated pure air even at homes.

Don't forget we breathe 24/7 even when living in smart homes


Of course, in this time and age when we are actively using some smart device or the other within the premises of our smart homes most of the time, the point that we are also breathing 24/7 need not be as labored. However, the question is: whether the quality of the air that we are breathing indoors is commensurate with the aspiration for this so-called quality of life and experience of living in high-class homes. In other words, even as we think we are living the 'high life' using all the fancy gadgets and increasing convenience in life, unless we breathe the right air, the desire and dream of quality living will not find true meaning.
