今週でインドのModi政権1周年だからか、EconomistがSpecial Reportでインドを取り上げ、政権の公約の実施状況から、経済や外交、宗教など多面的に取り上げてくれています。

TIMEは先々週にModi首相をカバーストーリーに選んでいましたし、科学雑誌Natureも文学雑誌Grantaもインドを最近取り上げていました。

Modi’s rule
India’s one-man band

The country has a golden opportunity to transform itself. Narendra Modi risks missing it
May 23rd 2015 | From the print edition

TIMEのカバーストーリーはfrom poverty to Prime Ministerとオバマ大統領がTIME100で書いていたように、モディ首相の経歴も合わせて紹介していました。Timeと比べるとEconomistはずっと辛口に評価しています。そのあたりの温度差を読み比べても面白いですね。

Narendra Modi
By Barack Obama

April 16, 2015

India’s reformer-in-chief
As a boy, Narendra Modi helped his father sell tea to support their family. Today, he’s the leader of the world’s largest democracy, and his life story—from poverty to Prime Minister—reflects the dynamism and potential of India’s rise.
Determined to help more Indians follow in his path, he’s laid out an ambitious vision to reduce extreme poverty, improve education, empower women and girls and unleash India’s true economic potential while confronting climate change. Like India, he transcends the ancient and the modern—a devotee of yoga who connects with Indian citizens on Twitter and imagines a “digital India.”
When he came to Washington, Narendra and I visited the memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We reflected on the teachings of King and Gandhi and how the diversity of backgrounds and faiths in our countries is a strength we have to protect. Prime Minister Modi recognizes that more than 1 billion Indians living and succeeding together can be an inspiring model for the world.
Obama is the 44th President of the United States


インドといえば、英語学習者にとっては癖のあるインド英語。Natureポッドキャストの9分あたりからインド英語を聞くことができます。



Natureの方も厳しめにインドの科学界の現状を書いている感じでした。科学に興味がない方もIndia by the numbersによるインフォグラフィックはオススメです。

NATURE | EDITORIAL
A nation with ambition
India is making great strides in improving its science, but it needs to look carefully at its approach and work with the rest of the world if it is to realize its full potential.
13 May 2015

SCIENCE IN INDIA
Nature takes a close look at the state of science in a mushrooming economy, soon to be the world’s most populous nation. By most metrics, India is underperforming compared with developed nations and ascendant economies such as China and Brazil. So, how best to build the country's scientific capacity, and tackle its grand challenges including energy, water, food and pollution?


India by the numbers
Highs and lows in the country’s research landscape.

文学雑誌Grantaのインド特集で、サイトからほんのすこしですが一般公開されているものがあります。

Granta 130: India
Winter 2015

For a long time – too long – the mirror that India held to its face was made elsewhere. ‘What writer about the country would you recommend I read?’ first-time travellers to India would ask, and in the later twentieth century the answer was still Forster or Naipaul or even the long-dead Kipling. In fiction, that changed with Rushdie. Now it has changed in all kinds of non-fiction. Narrative history, reportage, memoir, biography, the travel account: all have their gifted exponents in a country perfecting its own frank gaze.

YutaはGrantaのインド特集をこれを機にKindleで買ってみました。今の本が読み終わったら読んでみようと思います。
