Pascale Harter introduces personal stories and analysis from correspondents around the world. In this edition, Jonathan Fryer recounts a recent visit to Baghdad - and its once-notorious, Saddam-era al-Rasheed Hotel, threadbare and ruined in places, but buffing up its image and still eager for visitors and for foreign trade. Plus, Rahul Tandon wonders why English is still perceived as the language of success across India.
