Death trap This is with reference to cover story "Lethal Target" (January 1-15).

Empower NGT The cover story "Tribunal on trial" (November 15-30, 2014) that dealt with the National Green Tribunal (NGT) was an interesting read. I am not convinced, however, that setting up new institutions is really what India needs. I think it is more important to make the established institutions work more effectively.
