A Stain on IIT?

The Indian Institutes of Technology are some of the most advanced schools in the world, known and respected worldwide for their commitment to excellence.
So why are they considering a partnership with Dow Chemical?You’ve heard of Dow. They refuse to clean up the poisons their fully-owned subsidiary, Union Carbide, left behind in Bhopal.

The issue is settled, they say - “ $500 is plenty good for an Indian.”However Union Carbide remains a fugitive from Indian law. Dow says they won’t allow Carbide to appear for trial because India has “ no jurisdiction.”
