Over the past several years, there has been a considerable amount of writing about modern(izing) India. From different angles, writers are witnessing and documenting a subcontinent undergoing significant shifts. At Brighter Green, we’ve been most interested in the social and environmental issues that are emerging with a changing country, a changing diet, and a changing climate. Our recent paper Veg or Non-Veg? India at the Crossroads, and our videos on India’s chicken and dairy industries delve into this further. Brighter Green Associate, Sangamithra Iyer is writing this blog series, which highlights writings on India and where they intersect with our work with respect to sustainability, equity, and rights, particularly in the context of food security and climate change.
