Two blog posts. Both are a must-read.
Rahul Siddharthan: The Academies' Report on GM Crops. He publishes a letter written for publication by his colleague Gautam Menon and him.
Rahul Basu: Bt Egg(plant) in the Face.
Update: Just saw Vishu Guttal's post -- Indian Science chants 'Jairam' (and 'Jayaram') before the Ayodhya verdict -- on my Google Reader.
