What is Articles of Confederation? what are its strengths (or accomplishments) and two weaknesses (or failures

The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, commonly known as the Articles of Confederation, was the first governing document, or constitution, of the United States of America. The final draft was written in summer 1777 and adopted by the Second Continental Congress on November 15, 1777 in York, Pennsylvania after a year of debate. In practice it served as the de facto system of government used by the Congress ("the United States in Congress assembled") until it became de jure by final ratification on March 1, 1781. At that point Congress became the Congress of the Confederation. The Articles set the rules for operations of the "United States" confederation. The confederation was capable of making war, negotiating diplomatic agreements, and resolving issues regarding the western territories; it could print money and borrow inside and outside the US.

One criticism by those who favored a more powerful central state was that it lacked taxing authority; the federal government had to request funds from the states. A second concern was its one-state, one-vote plank. The larger states were expected to contribute more but had only one vote, though they could remedy this by dividing into smaller states. The Articles created a mutual defense confederation designed to manage the American Revolutionary War. The Articles were replaced by the United States Constitution on June 21, 1788.

What was the Indus water treaty between India and Pakistan?

Indus Water TreatyIt defines the water-sharing arrangement for six rivers of Indus basin that flow through both India and Pakistan.Indus Water Treaty, brokered by World Bank, was signed on Sept. 19, 1960 by Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and President of Pakistan Ayub Khan.The Treaty classified the six rivers of the Indus system into 'eastern' and 'western' rivers.Sutlej, Beas, and Ravi were easternJhelum, Chenab and Indus were westernThe categorisation was relative - the 'western' rivers flow almost parallely to the west of 'eastern' ones. Only Indus and Sutlej originates in China. The other four rise in India; and all enter Pakistan through India.The Treaty gave India full rights over the waters of 'eastern' rivers. Pakistan can use whatever flows into its territory.In case of 'western' rivers, India could use the waters for domestic purposes, and even for irrigation and hydropower production but not more than 20% of Indus river and have to allow rest flow unrestricted to Pakistan. Under the Treaty, India is also allowed to construct storage up to 3.6 million acre feet on the 'western' rivers which we haven't done yet.Why Indus Water Treaty is in newsIt is in news(again) because Yashwant Sinha, former EAM, has suggested abrogation of this Treaty as a non-military option for avenging recent Uri attack.Argumentatively, India being upstream, can stop the flow of waters to Pakistan and bring it to its knees. Pakistan is heavily dependent on Indus system. About 65% of its geographical area, including the entire Punjab province, it's three biggest dams, and several smaller ones, are parts of Indus basin. These are sources for hydroelectricity, irrigation, and drinking water for millions of Pakistanis. Blocking waters would force Pakistan to capitulate swiftly.Cons of abrogationIt would flood our own cities if we block waters from entering Pakistan.It would make our other neighbours with whom we have water-sharing arrangement uneasy and distrustful of usImage: Indian Express
