Purity and danger 6.1.2012 Telegraph: Opinion
New Year’s Day brought flesh-and-blood confirmation of the late Nani A. Palkhivala’s outrageously politically incorrect claim that freed from India, an Indian can buy from a Scotsman, sell to a Jew and still make a profit. Not that the unassuming and soft-spoken Asit K. Biswas buys or sells.

West Bengal will face a water crisis in 10 to 15 years, he says, with the danger of consequent social unrest.

Lavasa exposed 5.1.2012 Down to Earth
By its looks, the place could be mistaken for Portofino, a fishing village-cum-resort in Italy—multi-coloured buildings crowd a waterfront and cafes flank a cobbled promenade. But the under-construction town is just an hour"s drive from Pune in Maharashtra and is independent India"s first hill city—Lavasa. Planned on the principles of new urbanism where shops, homes, workplace and recreational facilities are within walking distance of each other, Lavasa is touted as a place that would offer quality life to its projected 300,000 residents and attract tourists.
