The House of Pachauri

One cannot avoid making the comment (at least, I can't) that as we see the homeland (and indeed adopted home city) of Dr Rajendra Pachauri make such a sterling performance of the Commonwealth Games, we can also rely on them for their financial probity and good sense, when it comes to dealing with the consequences of global warming.

How heartening it is that the former colony has had the good sense to learn the lessons from the Raj, and can now take its just place in the galaxy of liberal, democratic nations which lead the world with their imagination, fortitude and organisational skills - which are so much coming to the fore in the current celebrations of athletic prowess.

We should be so proud.
