ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the political and economic status of several Asian countries. The Islamists have not given up their war in Afghanistan. Bangladesh is considered a fertile territory for jihadists. India's economy is rapidly growing in the face of political gridlock despite the millions of desperately poor citizens living along a northern tier where they can be touched by the Maoist insurgency against Nepal's frail monarchy.
