Su­nita Narain at Jaipur Lit Fest

Down to Earth - - ON THE WEEK -

Down To Earth Edi­tor Su­nita Narain made an im­pas­sioned plea at the Jaipur Lit­er­a­ture Fes­ti­val for in­clu­sive growth and en­vi­ron­men­tal­ism. Cit­ing ex­am­ples from var­i­ous spheres of In­dian life‹waste man­age­ment, sewerage, pub­lic trans­port and agri­cul­ture ‹Narain laid em­pha­sis on one point: if a so­ci­ety's growth is not in­clu­sive, then it would never be sub­stan­tive. She urged In­dia's pol­icy mak­ers not to think out-of-the-box, but as if there was no box.
