Think of an invasion, and the picture that comes to mind is usually that of planes and tanks, machines and men, shells and gunshots. But animal and plant species also run amok, especially when they enter an ecosystem where they didn't previously exist. After habitat destruction, NITIN SETHI tells us, invasive alien species are the biggest threat to world biodiversity
The killing of two social activists has left behind a series of unanswered questions. On the evening of January 24 social activists Sarita and Maheshkant attended a meeting at Shabdo village in Bihar's Gaya district. Soon after the villagers saw them off they heard gunshots. They ran down to the main road in the neighbouring Rajabigha village and found Sarita lying in a pool of blood beside the motorcycle on which the two were returning to Fatehpur block 30km from the district headquarters in Gaya. She had been shot from so close that her temple bore burns from the firearm. Maheshkant lay in a ditch on the other side of the road also shot in the head...

Even as India is trying to build a firewall to block out the bird flu virus, the first likely case of the deadly pathogen's human-to-human transmission has surfaced in Vietnam. Two siblings in Hanoi are suspected to have contracted the disease from their brother. All three have succumbed to the infection.

I once saw a miracle. It was near a ragged wall of broken rocks near Udaipur. One side of the wall had patches of yellowing grass, not taller than an inch, with the occasional dry stalk. The other side, protected from goats by the wall, was a sea of green and yellow grass, up to a couple of feet tall. Here was something utterly simple that had the power to bring life back to these barren hillsides
Uma Bharti is getting serious. The newly elected chief minister of Madhya Pradesh (MP) has unleashed a development agenda built around the 'cow family', a literal translation of the Hindi term gauvansh, which simply means cattle. Cow slaughter (cattle slaughter, actually) has become a cognisable and non-bailable offence. She doesn't stop there. She dreams of a state dotted with gaushalas (cattlesheds). She has entrusted her minister Ramakant Tiwari with the full responsibility of developing a cow-based economy in MP. Inspired by the Netherlands, she has promised government-financed gaushalas along riverbanks to promote tourism, of all things...
Will that crippling scourge called polio be wiped out from the face of the earth by the end of this year? The World Health Organization (WHO) hopes so. But all its ambitions -- and that of the six governments it is working in tandem with -- will go to nought if the last person the disease could afflict isn't immunised. Reach the last person, Mahatma Gandhi used to say. How apt this pithy lesson on governance is in this effort to eradicate a disease that, otherwise, can only bounce back...
