“Earth has enough resources to meet people’s needs, but will never have enough to satisfy people's greed.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
All countries are concerned about climate change and terrorism but both the terms are contested at the implementation level. Paris is going to determine the future of humanity on earth where the world leaders are congregating to discuss the binding principles on climate change. The recent Paris attack has also made the French capital a unifying ground to fight against the global spread of Islamic State (IS). While world has not agreed on the meaning of terrorism and allowing countries to be the breeding ground of terrorists, climate change is a contentious issue between developed and developing countries on the grounds of absolute equal responsibilities or equitable justice on the basis of stages of development. Maximising the common ground on both the issues is a towering task Paris Conference will have to attain. On both the issues the position taken by Bharat is representation of the larger vision we have cultivated through our civilisational wisdom and therefore, critical for the outcome.
