It is titled “India Calling.” He is a columnist for The New York Times and its global edition, the International Herald Tribune: his “Currents” column explores fresh ideas, global culture and the social meaning of technology. He just completed a four-and-a-half-year tour as a foreign correspondent in India for The Times and the Herald Tribune, as their first Bombay presence in the modern era.
