about national priorities when it comes to harnessing technology for boosting crop yields to feed rising populations The first was the China National Chemical Corporation offering to pay $43 billion for acquiring Swiss agrochemicals and plant biotechnology giant Syngenta that only six months ago was a takeover target for US life sciences major Monsanto The state-owned company’s takeover which follows President Xi Jinping’s call “to boldly research and innovate [and] dominate the high points of GMO (genetically modified organisms) technology” only shows the value the Chinese authorities attach to biotechnology in furthering food security The same week also saw India deferring a decision on allowing commercial cultivation of a GMO mustard hybrid Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar’s statement that no decision would be taken without “due consideration and consultation” clearly signalled a government not wanting to ruffle the feathers of anti-GMO groups drawn from both the extreme left and right The government’s ambivalence is striking more so when it concerns a crop that contributes to a quarter of India’s edible oil production which in turn meets hardly a third of its consumption A technology that is expected to raise mustard crop yields by 25-30 per cent would obviously go some way in reducing reliance on imports currently valued at over $10 billion Also out of the total 145 million tonnes (mt) of imports a significant chunk (35 mt) comprises soyabean and rapeseed oil which are predominantly GMO The “swadeshi” activists protesting against domestic cultivation of GMO hybrid mustard seem to be silent when it comes to “videshi” imported GMO oils Also unlike Bt cotton that is based on the proprietary technology of a multinational (Monsanto) the developer of GMO mustard happens to be a publicly funded centre under Delhi University In other words this is a product that fits with the Modi government’s own Make in India framework The opposition to GMO mustard on grounds of it being a “food crop” unlike cotton is equally dubious Cotton-seed yields not only fibre but also oil and de-oiled meal consumed directly or indirectly by human beings If nobody is really protesting against their consumption — or for that matter of imported GMO oils — there is no reason to single out hybrid mustard The time has come for the government to stop pandering to Luddite interests and worry more about what is in the interest of farmers and national food security For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web

rise to further speculations It was reported earlier that Karan might launch Sara with his film Student of the Year 2 However the rumours died a natural death The latest tidbit from tinsel town suggests that Rock On director Abhishek Kapoor’s next will star Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput An India Today report confirmed that Sara will indeed make her debut with Abhishek’s film titled Kedarnath Sara along with her mother Amrita was spotted having a late-night dinner with director Abhishek Kapoor and Sushant This is a departure from Sara’s earlier public appearances From attending Karan Johar’s birthday party to working out in the gym with Malaika Arora Sara made sure to create a paparazzi frenzy every time she stepped out of her house The latest sighting of Sara seems to be

bird sanctuary But for some years now the Ranganadi Prakriti Suraksha Samiti a group formed by the local people has protected the birds from poachers They have also taught themselves to name the birds in order to guide visitors The wetlands are an example of how some of the most heartening stories in bird conservation lie outside the official pale of parks and sanctuaries Not long ago the Amur Falcons that pass through Nagaland on their long journey from Russia to South Africa were killed in thousands by local tribes But a grisly video prompted the traditional falcon hunters to give up killing in spite of substantial economic costs and become active participants in a conservation programme Then there is the hornbill whose falling numbers have been revived by various community efforts in the Northeast and Kerala In Arunachal Pradesh the hunter-warrior Nyishi tribe which used the hornbill’s beak and casque for their headgear has turned fiercely conservationist Other materials have been found for the headgear and the local community is involved in locating monitoring and protecting the nests apart from organising jungle camps for visitors Community-based conservation grew in the 1980s in reaction to older models which saw the protected area as a pristine space shorn of human presence In India the imperative of conservation has often come into conflict with the lives and livelihood of local populations As villagers were displaced by sanctuaries conservation became an oppressive agenda imposed from above But social and environmental priorities need not be at odds Giving local populations stakes in conservation and greater agency in directing its course could be a more productive model As the government’s conservation project flounders in a thicket of rules or is overtaken by other priorities India’s best hope may lie in its communities For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIn the virtual version of
