India has enjoyed signal successes with genetic engineering in agriculture. But today the nation’s relationship with this critical biotechnology is in total disarray, the victim of activists’ scaremongering and government pandering. Perhaps reason will win out in the face of such absurdities, and officials will come to their senses. Until then, the irony of India’s fear and ignorance driven approach to genetic engineering is that the only Frankenstein’s monster it has spawned is bureaucracy run amok.
