India on the rise
The big news in yesterday's Washington Post wasn't the subject of its front page story about India's struggle to obtain enough energy to power the country's move into the modern world.
For me, the real story was in the picture (top) on page 8 where the story continued.
That young man (detail below),
sitting in an empty shop in New Delhi after the restoration of power after last month's massive blackout, is far more important as an indicator of where the country is headed, which is to world leadership in the coming decades.
That guy, doing whatever he's doing on his tablet computer, is plugged in to the great world, the same one you and I take for granted.
His future is not in the obsolete technology of his parents and the store owner but, rather, in what's on his screen.
And it's bright enough that he'll need shades.
