Posted by: Bittu Sahgal on

Should we worry about American public opinion? It hardly seems possible, but between 30 & 40% actually believe the world began around 6,000 years ago. People living in Arizona do not accept the reality of climate change and, instead, blame immigrants for the wildfires raging across their

A strong West Wind!

Today was a very special day for me. I met with 80 pre-primary children from West Wind School, Mumbai. My message to them?
