Highlights of India Today 13th August 2018, issue:
This week’s cover story - A Tough Road Ahead - examines how Imran Khan, the charismatic cricketer-turned-politician who is set to lead Pakistan, plans to fix his country’s economy and tackle the nation’s other challenges in the face of an all-powerful military.
This issue’s Big Story - The Geopolitical Missile - talks about how India is heaving a sigh of relief after the US relented on its opposition to New Delhi’s plans to purchase the ‘game-changing’ S-400 Russian air defence missile system that the IAF needs badly.
The issue also features an interview with actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan in which he has said that politics was his true calling and acting was never his first love.
The story – Revenge of the River – takes India Today’s Save the Taj campaign forward and examines how a flood-swollen Yamuna is endangering the monument of love.
There is also an education special which argues why new-age universities must recognise employability as an important objective.
The issue also comes with two free magazines: Spice, and Simply Punjabi.
