Insensitive remarks on Vrindavan widows

Saturday, 20 Sep 2014 | Anandgopaldas | Vrindavan

Ms Hema Malini first spoke about ousting the Vrindavan monkeys. Now she says widows from West Bengal and Bihar should leave Vrindavan. It is high time that the BJP reins her in. Being a Member of Parliament, how can she talk of stopping widows from other parts of the country…

Shocking utterance

Saturday, 20 Sep 2014 | Sravana Ramachandran | Ooty

Sir — The comments by Lok Sabha MP Hema Malini, on Vrindavan widows, are in poor taste. It is surprising that an elected woman representative should have made such remarks on widows who are already suffering for want of affection. Most of the widows who stay at Vrindavan have been…

India shining

Saturday, 20 Sep 2014 | Bal Govind | Noida

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Change for the better?” Time will tell if Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit was a success. One thing is certain: Various countries are tripping over one another to be in India’s good books after Mr Narendra Modi assumed office. After Japan’s commitment to invest…

Good example

Saturday, 20 Sep 2014 | Madhu Agrawal | Delhi

Sir — At a time when the political class is being criticised over its lust for privileges, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar’s act of travelling by the Airport Metro Express is welcome. This should be a precedent for other political leaders using official cars — they should instead travel by the…

Grim reminder

Saturday, 20 Sep 2014 | Sagar Singh | Via email

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Course correction time” (September 18). The result of the by-polls is definitely a big jolt for the BJP. It is time for the party to introspect as to what led to its dismal performance in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat. It has rightly been…

Grounding AI

Saturday, 20 Sep 2014 | Premolal | Via web

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “To kill a dying airline” (September 16). Mr Praful Patel should have consulted the Patels who have captured more than 64 per cent of the hotel-motel business in the US without indulging in heavy debts, and by ensuring that the businesses they took…

Not the Mr Clean that media thinks he is

Friday, 19 Sep 2014 | Bhairebhai | Via web

This refers to the article, “Not just accidental, but negligent PM” (September 16) by A Surya Prakash. Media commentators still shy away from calling the former Prime Minister corrupt. They take the plea that he had never individually benefited from the scams in a financial sense. The fact is that he…

Wake up!

Friday, 19 Sep 2014 | H Balakrishnan | Via web

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Course correction time” (September 18). Minus Mr Narendra Modi and the foot soldiers of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the BJP amounts to practically nothing. The rest are all straw men. Moreover, there has been little perceptible movement by those who have come to…

Contain divisiveness

Friday, 19 Sep 2014 | Vani A | Hyderabad

Sir — Going by the setback that the BJP has received in the recently held by-election in various States, and especially its defeat in Uttar Pradesh, it would be best for the party to concentrate on good governance and revival of the economy. All this communal-minded talks by certain leaders of…

Inevitable fall-out

Friday, 19 Sep 2014 | J Akshay | Bangalore

Sir — It is unwise to make sweeping inferences from the results of the recently held by-polls. But the BJP’s defeat is a fall-out of majoritarian politics that some of its leaders have been practising. Prime Minister Narendra Modi must direct his party leaders to keep a check on their…

Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated by the concept of time. The passage of time, how each moment suddenly goes into the past and the present is turned into past, the future into present...
