India’s Newly-Made Defense Force

Written by Awell Islands

As the Minister of Regional Security, it had been a promise of mine since the beginning of the term that I bring in a peaceful defense force for the beautiful region of India.
Together with our close allies of Southfield and Africa, we have created a defense force which would protect our interests and defend our closest allies and ourselves during times of danger. The forces are currently being recruited from all three regions and being trained to reach their full capacity. This defense force will provide India with a strong voice in the NS world and to better protect India and our interests.
The defense force is basically structured and is built around speed and having a fast response. Contact myself, Awell Islands, if you would like the aid of our defense forces.
The future will hold peace for India, our allies, and the NS world.
P.S. A quick reminder that India is still neutral in the world stage and always will be.

India Prime Updates

Written by Indusse

The last month was having a handful of changes for the region. First of all, Indusse won the World Assembly Elections and was elected the delegate of India. The new cabinet released a new map,website and now a roleplay. The administration is also working on the Regional Wik which is powered using Miraheze Media Wiki. The new citizenship record was added to the website making it easier to find. The regional discord server was renovated and many new changes were made.

The region established embassies with The East Pacific. Special thanks to Libertanny for accepting the embassies and Sokala was made the diplomat from TEP.

The region was part of the Potato Alliance N Day Faction and the faction finished second in the event. The Potato Alliance will be known for the extraordinary comeback in this year's event. Special thanks to faction leader Salaxalans for inviting us to the faction.

Why do Indians eat with their hands?

Written by Hindu Mahasabha

The practice of eating with the hands originated within Ayurvedic teachings. The Vedic people believed that our bodies are in sync with the elements of nature and our hands hold a certain power. Ayurvedic texts teach that each finger is an extension of one of the five elements:

Through the thumb comes space
Through the forefinger comes air
Through the mid-finger comes fire
Through the ring finger comes water
Through the pinky finger comes earth

When you eat with your hands, you are supposed to do so by joining all fingers together. This is believed to improve our consciousness of the taste of the food we eat. Not only are you feeding your body but also your mind and spirit. When you touch your food with your hands, you’re creating a physical and spiritual connection with it. You’re also much more present in the moment. When food is touched with the hands, there’s automatically more careful attention placed on it – what the temperature is, how much you can carry, how the hand must be held in order to keep the food in it.

Please Note: This edition is not having a interview because of busy schedule and we lost our interviewer Armenasia as he moved to The Leftist Assembly. The next edition will have a interview with a reputed nation in Nationstates.
