Highlight of 2017
The prominent headline of 2017 was not deadly air pollution but the catastrophe of weather changes that brought distress across rural India.
As I see it, the 2017 "person" of the year was the weather. And the face of 2017 was the farmer, who bears the brunt of weather changes, from unseasonal rain to drought. This was the year when India had a drought at the time of flood and flood at the time of drought. This was the time of the seasons of despair and time we recognised it so that we respond—better and faster.
