    It is good that the CM will share the knowledge on climate change in this summit. Fortunately, he will be have no problems in financing his trip from the exchequer and do not have to bear the brunt of babudom for the necessary permission to leave the country.
    The researchers of state, who are invited/sponsored to international conferences by the virtue of selection of their research work, are no so lucky to get benevolence of all the babus in long departmental channels.
