Possibly, the most revolutionary idea to reduce carbon emissions. However, recyclability of materials, long term sustainability of resource materials, and long term implications are still debatable -will be discussed, and argued over and over in the next few years.

After Narendra Modi's recent meeting with Barack Obama, there was some criticism of his wearing a suit whose stripes spelt out his own name. The criticism was not unmerited; it was a tawdry, tacky, thing to do. Yet Modi's expensive display of self-love was entirely characteristic of how powerful and successful Indian males tend to behave in public.

I liked the line  :"We want our scientists and researchers to explore the mysteries of science, not of government procedures"  I am sure this sentiment would have echoed with all previous prime ministers. With Modi what remains to be seen is how quickly he is able to bring about perceptible change.

True that. The last para sums Modi elegantly.
