This refers to the editorial, “Spoken like a statesman” (January 16).

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Don’t shoot messenger” (January 14). Before questioning the jawans, the Army needs to ask itself what and who created the circumstances that the jawans had to take on to social media to talk about their grievances. Our jawans guard our borders, and are posted...

Sir — This refers to the article, “Need for accountability in politics of dynasty” (January 14) by Joginder Singh. Dynastic politics is, frankly speaking, antithetical to democratic polity. The quest for power and intense love for authority are the supreme desires in dynastic politicians. In practice, their base motive often...
This refers to the editorial, “The failed earth quake” (January 13). Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi time and again targets the Prime Minister. He says achche din will come when the Congress returns to power. The Congress was in power for most of the past 70 years, but the...
