The Gulf News is a paper published in Dubai, UAE, which does a good job of focusing on the concerns of the mixed expatriate population there (primarily Pakistanis and Indians). It is worth reading, because it is broad in its coverage, different in its perspective from both the American and British press (I am not exposed to others) and in particular, reveals the mind of the wealthy citizen of the developing world living outside their country when it comes to matters of pride, like globalization.

Here's a piece on the disputed territory of Kashmir, interesting because the author acknowledges no solution, and ends with various self-serving historical flourishes that do little to progress the dialogue (which cannot be furthered anyway). It also reveals the tensions between national sovereignty and a shared world responsibility to people.

Thanks to SA for the pointer.
