Schuster) Related News Title: Indira Gandhi: A Life in Nature Author: Jairam Ramesh Publisher: Simon & Schuster Pages: 437 Price: Rs 799 We think of Indira Gandhi’s years in the wilderness as the period in the Opposition 1977-1980 but setting apart the figure of speech Jairam Ramesh’s book reminds us that she had a very real lifelong relationship with the wild which informed the ecological policies established under her rule Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi whom he plied with books on natural history and wildlife (apart from those famous letters) were perhaps the only Indian prime ministers who could tell a blue-fronted redstart from a red-vented bulbul And if the father is remembered for promoting big dams and heavy industry the daughter was alive to the environmental cost of development In the Sixties and Seventies she framed these concerns precisely as we do now 50 years later A vocal member of the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS which publishes the books of Salim Ali who was a mentor to Gandhi) she was also a founding member of the Delhi Birdwatching Society Her tenure as prime minister coincided with the rise of the global environmental movement (by way of reference Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring appeared in 1962 and Gandhi took office four years later) and the founding principles of India’s conservation movement were set under her rule With a wealth of detail culled from the archives Ramesh establishes that she was the right person in the right place at the right time Her personal interest in conservation steered India’s green policy created institutions like the Indian Forest Service (constituted in 1966 the year she became PM) and ensured the environmental security of havens like Chilka Lake and the Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary in Bharatpur Ramesh begs to differ with Ramachandra Guha who had attributed Indira Gandhi’s interest in birds to the American pacifist and ornithologist Horace Alexander Mahatma Gandhi’s friend and founder of the Delhi Birdwatching Society who had done fieldwork in what is now Nagaland with Sidney Dillon Ripley (who would later win acclaim as secretary of the Smithsonian Institution) Ramesh traces Gandhi’s ornithological interests back to 1942 when she was an inmate at Naini Central Prison Allahabad In 1941 Salim Ali had met Nehru in Dehra Dun where he was jailed and gave him an autographed copy of his new work The Book of Indian Birds Decades later Gandhi alluded to the influence of the classic and Stanley Henry Prater’s Book of Indian Animals in her speech at the BNHS’s centenary celebrations adding “But I did not know much about birds until the high walls of Naini prison shut us off from them and for the first time I paid attention to bird songs I noted the sounds and later on after my release my father sent me Dr Salim Ali’s book and I was able to identify the birds” Gandhi’s approach to conservation was graduated In 1958 before she became PM she wrote an article in theSunday Statesman about a trip to Manali urging against reckless modernisation She suggested that the Kullu valley could be reserved for trekkers and nature lovers while city slickers should go to pukka hill stations like Simla and Mussoorie She seems to have rejected the government versus activist model which now polarises the issue Apart from naturalists she was sympathetic to grassroots activists like Sundarlal Bahuguna In 1981 she sent him a taped public statement backing his padayatra from Kashmir to Kohima warning of the dangers of denuding the hills Quite often in acting on an environmental issue Gandhi was guided by the reports and appeals of foreign agencies activists and researchers who are now regarded with instinctive suspicion by the government Indeed when Western researchers found it impossible to get visas for geopolitical reasons the norms were relaxed for environmental and conservation projects Project Tiger was proposed by the British conservationist Guy Mountfort’s World Wildlife Fund He understood that it would not fly without the PM’s backing and sought an audience He was pleasantly surprised to find a task force constituted the very next morning and a meeting scheduled within 48 hours According to Ramesh’s research Ashok Khosla the physicist behind the concept of sustainable development joined the fledgeling Department of Science and Technology on the recommendation of his professor at Harvard the celebrated Roger Revelle He standardised the environmental impact assessment of projects nurtured NGOs and established Development Alternatives After the debacle of 1977 two of Gandhi’s last communications before demitting office concerned the environment One was to the petroleum minister concerning oil prospecting in the Sunderbans and warning of the damage that a spill would cause to Project Tiger The other reminded the chief minister of Assam who proposed to clear forests and institute the monoculture of commercially profitable species of the implications for water management and climate change across borders While the Indian conservation movement is the sum total of the work of thousands of people from maharajas who put down the hunting rifle in favour of the camera to farmers and foresters who saw the implications of environmental damage at first hand Jairam Ramesh suggests that it was accelerated and given intelligent direction by Indira Gandhi She was guided by a direct immediate connection with the outdoors which she shared with her father She had travelled widely in the wild and at home in Teen Murti House she had helped maintain Nehru’s menagerie which at one time included three tiger cubs and Sanjay Gandhi’s baby crocodile (do all headstrong leaders encounter crocodiles in their impressionable years) The family’s travel preferences recounted by Jagat Mehta illustrate their love for the outdoors In 1958 father and daughter aged 67 and 41 led a diplomatic mission to Bhutan via Tibet trekking 105 km in five daysfrom the Nathu La pass to Paro at altitudes of around 15000 feet If contemporary leaders who attribute all the ills of India to the Nehru-Gandhis attempted such feats in their international travels it would improve their figures their temper and their world view For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related News The ability to pack bits of data on computer hard drives has skyrocketed more than 10000-fold over the past 3 decades You can now fit more than 100 Hollywood movies on the average machine One reason has been the steady improvement in sensors used to read and write bits of data in the magnetic materials used to make the disks Now researchers describe the most powerful such sensing material yet to work at room temperature The discovery may open the door not just to reading out smaller data bits but also to a wide range of improved magnetic technologies such as making cheaper touch screen displays At the heart of data reading and recording devices is a property called magnetoresistance (MR) in which the electrical resistance of a material changes in response to the presence of an external magnetic field Turn on a magnetic field and the material’s ability to carry an electric current skyrockets or plummets in response Early MR materials changed their resistance only by a few percent at room temperature Giant magnetoresistive materials discovered in the late 1980s pushed the number up to 110% And researchers in Japan raised it to 600% in 2002 with the discovery of materials that carry out something called tunnel magnetoresistance But now all those numbers pale in comparison as a paper published online today in Science reports that molecular wires are capable of a 2000% magnetoresistance change at room temperature Ironically the new molecular wires aren’t made with magnetic materials at all Rather their MR effect relies on the conductivity of nonmagnetic organic dye molecules called DXP which the Italian automaker Ferrari once used to give their roadsters their trademark red color Unlike conventional inorganic metals in which electrons zip through a crystalline lattice in organics electrons must hop from one molecule to another like pails of water being passed by a bucket brigade To create a MR material researchers need to switch off that bucket brigade in the presence of a magnetic field In organic materials researchers do this with a little help from quantum mechanics A tenet of quantum mechanics called the Pauli Exclusion Principle states that no two fermions (particles in a family that includes electrons) can occupy the same quantum state If two electrons with the same quantum state try to hop onto the same DXP they can’t The bucket brigade turns off and resistance skyrockets But over the past several years researchers have found that thin films of DXPs or other organic conductors have an MR well below the competition The reason for this turned out to be another quantum mechanical property In addition to carrying a negative electric charge electrons also carry spin which can point up or down like a tiny bar magnet If two electrons have the same spin they can’t hop on the same DXP together But if one electron’s spin flips to the opposite direction then it’s no problem The two can hop on one DXP together and the bucket brigade continues In their work with films of DXPs and other organics researchers found that two problems prevented the films from acting like good MR materials First thermal fluctuations at room temperature flipped electron spins And second even if electrons did share the same spin direction—and were thus blocked from hopping onto the same DXP—they just jumped to a neighbor that wasn’t blocked "If it’s a 3D film you can always go around the blockade" says Markus Wohlgenannt a physicist at the University of Iowa in Iowa City whose team was one of the first to discover organic MR materials To prevent this runaround researchers led by Wilfred van der Wiel a physicist at the University of Twente in the Netherlands sought to arrange the DXPs in straight lines To do so they essentially shoved them inside the narrow pores of a zeolite a lattice-like mineral in which the confines were so tight the organics had no choice but to line up They then placed their zeolite atop a conductive surface with the pores facing up and used the tip of an atomic force microscope to make contact with individual DXPs at the top end of single pores The lineup of DXPs obviously meant that electrons could no longer hop around a blockade But they also found that even very small magnetic fields were enough to prevent thermal fluctuations from flipping electron spins And the result was that when electrons encountered blockages they were unable to work around them and the resistance of the material shot upwards Wohlgenannt calls the new work "a groundbreaking paper" That said he adds that it’s not clear if this will lead to higher capacity disc drives For starters researchers must first pull off the effect without the use of atomic force microscopes which aren’t a practical addition to disk drive technology Researchers will probably also need to figure out ways to push higher electrical currents through the molecular wires to make magnetic sensors that can compete with current technology But even if the new materials aren’t ideal for making better disk drives Wohngenannt and van der Wiel say the powerful MR effect might still make them useful for other electronics applications such as pen-based touch screens that are responsive to a magnetic stylus or perhaps even improved magnetic sensors in smart phones that are able to pick up the Earth’s magnetic field and use that for improved

a telling passage in The Vanished Detective Inspector Konrad Simonsen remembers his early days in the force in the late 1960s-early 70s when Europe was rife with protests “My legs wouldn’t stop shaking…and I was afraid my colleagues were going to notice…standing there in the front line…like some soldier in a war I didn’t understand…” It sums up the thin line between belonging and unbelonging — the complete conviction of the demonstrators in their cause and their hatred for the system and the utter bafflement of the young inexperienced police constables representing a system they didn’t understand fully well themselves It also encapsulates what much of police work entails — trying to grasp at events in the past that might hold meaning in the present As Simonsen is accosted by the death of a postman which might well be an accident but for the angle of his fall and his secret shrine to a young girl who went missing ages ago the DI will have to go back to that same past to unearth its import The Vanished is less a mystery and more an exploration of a time that saw some of the most momentous mass movements in 19th century Europe The crux of the novel is Simonsen’s internal conflict — his attempts to rationalise his life and the decisions he has taken even as he tries to make sense of a cold case that no one else wants to spend time over Just for You Book: Keep
