Cooking Oil and Indian Education

Recently, the New York Times ran two articles about Indian education. The first presents it as the envy of even Japan, while the second highlights its weaknesses. It’s an interesting study in contrasts.

Also in the New York Times is this article about the rising price of cooking oil. Apparently it’s oil (of one sort or another) that makes the world go round.
