Finally, good airports
T. N. Ninan has good news from the airport that's being constructed at Delhi. Right now, Delhi is probably the worst airport in the world (e.g. see a list of the world's worst airports in Foreign Policy). It will be an interesting contrast to see the existing mess being replaced by a new airport. The glass is half full on infrastructure, given the transformation of policies - politics - administration that has taken place with telecom, roads, ports and aviation. With electricity, railways and urban infrastructure, we continue to be mired in an unreconstructed and dysfunctional institutional framework.
