A tribute to the magic called: Rain

RainA liquefied slice of heaven fell on a rose petal one day It toggled, turned, danced and swayed As it moved, it shone different shades of red and purple hue The shades changed as it made its way gliding down the velvety rue Then another drop of diamond fell gently on the red carpet as it exuded sweet perfume That one too made its way to the red softness of the seasonal bloom A third crystal joined…See More

The Bottom of the Pyramid: The Need to Integrate the Poor in the Growth Story: Part 1

The proposition also syncs well with the first of the UN Millennium Development Goals, which call for an eradication of extreme poverty and hunger in the world—i.e., to cut down by half the proportion of…See More

My new article covers the jasmine (also known as mogra in Hindi and Marathi) floriculture initiative undertaken by the tribal (Katkari) farmers in the Vikramgad block of Thane district. Technical assistance from a local NGO has helped these poor farmers to supplement their seasonal income by cultivating organic jasmine buds for the markets of Mumbai. Suitable market linkages (overseas and domestic markets) and public policy measures can help to…

Fight for Liberty, with Max Boot, Philip Bobbitt, Garry Kasparov, & Bret Stephens

We live in a time when liberal democracy is on the defensive, not only in the U.S. but around the world. Yet these speakers, whose roots reflect the political spectrum, are optimistic that having a fresh discussion on moral values and basic principles such as freedom of speech, a free press, and the rule of law can help bring democracy back to health. Don't miss this valuable discussion.

Global Ethics Weekly: Science Fiction, Micro-democracy, & Information, with Malka Older

Malka Older has spent time as an aid worker in Darfur, Indonesia, and Japan, as was discussed in last week's podcast, but she also has another role: science fiction novelist. Her latest book, "State Tectonics," is the third in a series that explores the concepts of "micro-democracy" and a "global information management bureacracy" in the near future. How have separatists from East Timor to Catalonia influenced Older's novels?
