    Question

    Out from within ...

    Who is Narendra Modi ?
    India's path to becoming a world power

    DW Documentary


    Many consider Narendra Modi to be the new strong man on the international stage. The right-wing nationalist has steered India's fortunes since 2014. He is the key player behind the new Indo-Pacific alliance against China.

    "No power in the world can stop a country of 1.3 billion people. The 21st century will be India's century," Modi says. After six decades of the Nehru-Gandhi family’s rule, India watched a man of the people rise from the ranks of the opposition and ascend to power in 2014. Narendra Modi promised India a new beginning.

    And he knows just how to keep himself center stage: He is the world’s third most followed person on Twitter. Equally adept at playing dove-like pacifist and hawkish commander in chief, Modi has a score to settle with history. He wants to restore India to its original "purity" and secure its central role in the world order. In India, he is accused of wanting to transform the world's largest democracy into an anti-Muslim, anti-liberal Hindu state.

    His influence on international politics, as one the masterminds of the Indo-Pacific strategy against China, is inescapable. India has never been as powerful as it is today; domestically, it has never been as nationalistic and authoritarian. Who is Narendra Modi? What is the Hindu nationalist militia, from whose ranks he emerged? This is the story of a turning point - for India and for the world.

    Russians in Germany clash over the war in Ukraine

    DW Documentary


    The war in Ukraine is driving a wedge between Russian speakers in Germany. Putin’s critics and supporters are fiercely divided. The conflict came to a head on May 9, which marked 77 years since Nazi Germany's surrender.

    Barricades, strict regulations, and thousands of police on duty: German authorities predicted May 9 would get heated. Commemorated as "Victory Day” in many former Soviet countries, the date marks 77 years since the surrender of Nazi Germany. But due to the war in Ukraine, the occasion took on a whole new meaning. The divide between Putin’s opponents and supporters was brought into sharp focus. Authorities banned the display of Russian and Ukrainian flags in the hopes of avoiding escalation. But emotions were running high at dueling protests, with demonstrators breaking out in verbal confrontations over Russia’s war in Ukraine. DW reporter Oxana Evdokimova shows the divisions in the Russian-speaking community in Berlin and why many Russians in Germany support Putin and the military aggression in Ukraine.

    Benzo Dope and Tranq: The Next Wave of the Overdose Crisis

    VICE News


    More than 100,000 Americans died of a drug overdose in 2021, the worst year on record. The newest wave of the overdose crisis involves man-made chemicals, including animal tranquilizers, that are being combined with fentanyl to make street drugs that are deadlier and more addictive.

    With access to an undisguised fentanyl dealer, Beyond Fentanyl looks at how drugs like “benzo dope” and “tranq” are ravaging North American communities and how U.S. policy affected the latest flood of synthetic street drugs.
