    Scott Carney, Jason Miklian, and Kristian Hoelscher report on Fortress India: Why is Delhi building a new Berlin Wall to keep out its Bangladeshi neighbors? “Felani wore her gold bridal jewelry as she crouched out of sight inside the squalid concrete building. The 15-year-old’s father, Nurul Islam, peeked cautiously out the window and scanned the steel and barbed-wire fence that demarcates the border between India and Bangladesh. The fence was the last obstacle to Felani’s wedding, arranged for a week later in her family’s ancestral village just across the border in Bangladesh.” Read the full report in Foreign Policy.
