On the way to Mr Ambani's $1 billion home, one will pass maimed homeless boys begging at the traffic lights. While our techies work on some of the world's cutting edge problems, khap panchayats execute honour killings of boys and girls who fall in love outside their caste. India's diversity is mind-boggling in every possible way. How does a political party cut through this clutter to win elections - by using structures that have held us together for centuries (religion, caste, class, language). Unfortunately, these structures also divide us into polarized groups, leading to long-term societal damage. There IS a better alternative - the uniquely Indian development agenda (imagine the socialism of the AAP combined with the right-wing capitalism of the BJP). It's time for a new way forward - Comment

Over the weekend, I was fortunate to meet two gentlemen who are using the power of education to transform the next generation of India. Ramji Raghavan's Agastya International Foundation is instilling scientific curiosity in the minds of rural children all over India. It reaches over 1.5 million children and 250,000 teachers every year through its mobile science fairs and its campus in Andhra Pradesh. Backers include Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, A M Naik and Narayana Murthy. In far flung Ladakh, another visionary, Sonam Wangchuk is transforming Ladakh (and its school system) using smart engineering and science, including the use of innovative ice stupas to solve water problems. Sonam seems to be the inspiration behind Phunsuk Wangdu in the movie 3 Idiots - Comment
