The scientists who invented the B.T. baigan may be gloating in glee over their success in pinching some obnoxious gene from some turdy bacteria and shoving it down an unsuspecting eggplant’s throat. But tell me – what’s the point?  What do you aim to achieve, apart from a sore eggplant...

“Saar…coffee.”  Susie’s steamy whisper hung over the wisps of instant coffee as she poured me a cup of the piping concoction.
