The last couple of years have been an eventful time for trade policy and in particular for major preferential trade agreements (PTAs), such as the so-called mega-regionals.

Around the same time, Canada and the European Union (EU) agreed at the level of negotiators to conclude the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). Finally, the USA and the EU continued their efforts to find common ground in the negotiations towards the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) treaty.

Historians and other writers on India have ruminated about the possible nexus between Indian music and the music of other ancient civilizations. One significant example of global encounter that resulted from the dissemination of Buddhism resides in a musical instrument: the ovoid-shaped lute that we know as the oud/pipa/biwa, which originated at the far western end of the Silk Road. Music theory, as developed by Indo-Aryans within a Brahmanic intellectual tradition, became the theory of ancient India, so widespread that it is assumed that musicians and theorists throughout the subcontinent shared one system.
