New dawn in India-Japan relationship in making

Tuesday, 02 Sep 2014 | Bal Govind | Noida

This refers to the article, “Land of the rising sun and of opportunities” (August 1) by Balbir Punj. Indeed, the pace with which Prime Minister Narendra Modi is working on foreign policy deserves applause. He has already been to Nepal and Bhutan, and is in Japan within 100 days of his…

Sound friendship

Tuesday, 02 Sep 2014 | Devendra Khurana | Bhopal

Sir — This refers to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ongoing visit to Japan. Mr Modi’s initiative is a great opportunity for both India and Japan to inject greater momentum into their economic partnership, which has not realised its full potential. If India gains economically from its relationship with Japan, then…

Welcome supervision

Tuesday, 02 Sep 2014 | Madhu Agrawal | Delhi

Sir — After the Prime Minister’s Office denied media negative reports about a family member of the Union Home Minister, there has been a flood of more such reporting about the Prime Minister controlling his ministerial colleagues, including asking one of them to change his dress on a foreign…

Flawed resolution

Tuesday, 02 Sep 2014 | NR Ramachandran | Chennai

Sir — The Jammu & Kashmir State Legislative Council has passed a resolution that calls for the resumption of India-Pakistan talks. After the Union Government decided to call off talks with Pakistan, the J&K House had no business to adopt a resolution that goes against the Centre’s foreign policy. Since…

Kerala strategy

Tuesday, 02 Sep 2014 | Venkataraman Jagadesan | Via web

Sir — This refers to the BJP’s renewed thrust in Kerala. The main reason for the party not getting adequate support in the State is because of demography. The Hindus are nearly 54 per cent of the population and the Muslims form 46 per cent, while Christian population stands at…

Imagined fears

Tuesday, 02 Sep 2014 | Premolal | Via web

Sir — This refers to the BJP’s renewed thrust in Kerala. Like in West Bengal, Kerala has a strong presence of communists, though the State is far more peaceful than West Bengal. Ignorance of concerns of the Hindu community is common among non-Hindus in Kerala. Pseudo-seculars parties like the Congress…

When news is treated like a TV soap opera

Monday, 01 Sep 2014 | M Ratan | New Delhi

This refers to the report, “War on financial untouchability” (August 29), on the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana. Since it is the NDA Government's first mega flagship scheme which will incorporate crores of deprived Indians into the national financial system, one expected that the media would project it as a…

Clean ministry

Monday, 01 Sep 2014 | Ganapathi Bhat | Akola

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Sage advice from SC” (August 29). By exhibiting remarkable judicial restraint, the Supreme Court has put to rest debates on whether the judiciary can don the role of the executive. In the past, through several trend-setting verdicts, the apex court had set right…

Better communication

Monday, 01 Sep 2014 | BP Srivastava | Noida

Sir — This refers to the article, “Enchant voters with Modi magic again” (August 29) by Kalyani Shankar. The writer has aptly brought out the fact that the BJP needs to bring back the feel-good factor if it wants to do well in the coming Assembly polls. It does not…

Supreme Court should have gone beyond advising

Saturday, 30 Aug 2014 | Kanishka Pathak | Dhanbad

This refers to the editorial, “Sage advice from SC” (August 29). The Supreme Court's decision to deliver the sagely advice that it is upon the Prime Minister of India to select his or her council of Ministers, is polemical. The court has ensured that the judiciary must not dabble in the…



Those who follow the path of Buddha prosper. But we see those having ideas of the 18th century, engage in encroachments and enter seas (of others).

Prime Minister | Narendra Modi

I am not against any particular person being made Governor, but against Centre's attitude of not consulting the Chief Minister.

Karnataka Chief Minister | Siddaramaiah

We need a regional conference with Egyptians, Saudis and Gulf States. It must focus on ensuring that rehabilitation takes place alongside demilitarisation.

Israel's Finance Minister | Yair Lapid
