    What India can learn from China: Experience of cross border gas pipeline projects
    “India is lagging behind China due to TIPS (Trade-Investment-Political-Social) strategy with the supplier and transit country”, claims a new study. Sanket Sudhir Kulkarni and Prof. Hippu Salk Kristle Nathan from the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Indian Institute of Science have studied the execution of energy projects in India and China. The study undertook a comparative analysis of approaches of China and India towards supplier and transit countries in the energy pipeline. They found that China had performed remarkably better than India due to better policies and strategic ties with its neighbours.

    Fruit preferences in the rhesus macaque
    The large, red-faced, rather scary rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) is a species of monkey a lot of us have encountered. The primate is highly adaptable, and eats almost anything – fruits, small leaves and human food. Studying what kind of fruitsprimates prefer can reveal their importance in this important activity of seed dispersal, and in turn the impact the primates can have on forest dynamics.

    Effects of provisioning in rhesus macaques and ecosystems
    Have you fed a monkey when you are at a place of worship, or at a bus stand? This act of kindness towards a fellow primate can cause changes to entire forest food webs and ecosystem processes, finds a recent study. For starters, the amount of fruits monkeys ate decreased by almost half when they had access to human food.
