Nature is Speaking

Nature is essential to every aspect of human life and well-being — we want to make sure it’s included in the conversation. People are taking more from nature than it has to give, and as a result, we’re putting our own lives on the line… Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.

Britain and India – Marriage à-la-Modi

A close relationship gets cosier, but the visiting leader’s real audience is back home

IT SHOULD be a welcome like no other. On November 13th India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, is due to get the rock-star treatment at Wembley stadium in London when about 55,000 people turn out to hear him speak.
The organisers claim that this will not only be the biggest overseas reception so far for the jet-setting premier, topping even last year’s appearance at Madison Square Garden in New York, but also Britain’s largest-ever welcome for a visiting leader (minus popes). The warm embrace is not surprising: of the 1.5m or so people of Indian origin in Britain, almost half are Gujarati, hailing from Mr Modi’s home state.
