India Insight: Climate fight goes way beyond coal

REUTERS/Eduardo Munoz/Pool - RC2XWP91R3MWMUMBAI, Oct 26 (Reuters Breakingviews) - India is part of the global climate solution, not just part of a dirty problem to be fixed. As a developing country relying on coal to meet about half of its primary energy demand, India is in a tricky spot. Tackling coal would also require Modi to spend a lot of political and financial capital beyond just shutting down the plants. Coal India (COAL.NS), the country’s top miner, directly employs about 260,000, and millions more depend on the sector. Coal will remain the elephant in the room, but Modi has some key fundamentals on its side to help smooth a global climate transition.

Chinese President Xi Jinping's expected absence from the talks could indicate that the world's biggest CO2 producer has already decided that it has no more concessions to offer at the U.N. COP26 climate summit in Scotland after three major pledges since last year, climate watchers said. The head of the world's third-biggest source of climate-warming emissions, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has committed to attending the COP26 summit, which runs from Oct. 31 to Nov. 12. Though there has been no official announcement, analysts and diplomatic sources said few had been expecting Xi to attend COP26 in person. DOMESTIC CONCERNSAlthough Xi has not travelled outside China since before the pandemic, he has made three major climate announcements on the international stage. Xi also said in a message to the U.S.-led Leaders Summit on Climate in April that China would start cutting coal consumption by 2026.

(CNN) India captain Virat Kohli denied his team underestimated Pakistan in Sunday's high-profile Twenty20 World Cup contest and said they know what went wrong in the thumping by their arch-rivals. India went into the match with a 12-0 record in World Cups against their neighbors but Pakistan snapped that streak with a 10-wicket romp at Dubai International Stadium. Kohli reacted with incredulity when asked if their unblemished track record made them complacent ahead of the Group 2 blockbuster. "You don't go out there to take anything lightly, especially a team like Pakistan who on their day can beat anyone in the world," Kohli, who will relinquish India's Twenty20 captaincy after the tournament, told reporters. "This is a game that has to be respected, and we are a team that definitely respects the game... We never take any opposition lightly.

Bollywood is coming to Broadway. “Come Fall in Love — The DDLJ Musical,” based on the Indian filmmaker Aditya Chopra’s 1995 hit “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge,” which has become a cultural touchstone of contemporary Bollywood, will open during the 2022-23 season, producers announced on Friday. The film, which was Chopra’s directorial debut at age 23, is a romantic comedy that tells the story of Simran, a young Indian American woman who is arranged to be married to a family friend who convinces her strict father that she should have a summer adventure in Europe first. (A charming American throws a wrench into her logical plans.) “Twenty-six years later, I’m going back to my original vision of the story of ‘DDLJ,’” he said, “a love story of two cultures … two worlds.”

Social media users are sharing a quote wrongly attributed to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange saying that the U.S. fears Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi because they know that he is incorruptible. The text in the posts reads: “America fears Modi because they know that he is INCORRUPTIBLE – Julian Assange Wikileaks Founder.”There is no evidence that Assange ever said this. The quote they link to is similar to the one circulating now on social media, but in Hindi. In a tweeted reply, Wikileaks said: “#Assange has never spoken about #Modi in any manner whatsoever. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange did not say that the U.S. fears Mondi because they know that he is incorruptible.
