hot air (Cached) 17.4.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
Things are moving fast. And these are not good things. The second of the three reports from the United Nations intergovernmental panel on climate change had made clear in April that global warming and the rise in sea levels are likely to be far greater than earlier expected. A drop in crop yield, coastal flooding and an unstable water supply will ultimately bring about a huge escalation in human conflict. All countries need immediate controls on the emission of greenhouse gases, measures to conserve water and energy and reduce air pollution. But these, if not thought through with expertise, could clash with the drive for development, and India, heading excitedly towards its 16th Lok Sabha, may be finding it a tough call. The manifestos of its contending political parties reflect this discomfort. It is not that the parties are deaf to environmental concerns.

Narendra Modi's Gujarat Model is also about decentralisation of governance (Cached) 17.4.2014 DNA: Opinion
In the recent ANI interview, BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi mentioned that the secret of his success as Gujarat chief minister was the fact that he has no power and has decentralised the functioning of the government or brought about Swaraj (rule of the people) in Gujarat.  The word ‘Swaraj’ has inspired generations of Indians, right from Lokmanya Tilak, who propagated the thought to rid India of British rule and called it his birthright, to Mahatma Gandhi who furthered its meaning by alluding to self governance and non interference of the State. Modi is often projected as a sort of dictator by opposition parties and in the media, and portrayed as running a centralised model in his state politics. This is despite the fact that academics like Bibek Debroy, during their study of the Gujarat model, have often highlighted decentralisation as one of the four core pillars of the Gujarat model . A close study of the Gujarat model reveals that it is in fact filled with examples of how Swaraj has ...
