Know thy politicians
THIS refers to Akshay Sood’s write-up "Know thy politicians" (June 17). The author says "Why not start understanding the politicians? And may be start giving the credit due to them". Having seen through our present-day politicians, one finds it hard to accept this appeal. Politicians’ sole aim is to capture power by hook or crook and cling to it forever. How can we have sympathy or regard for them?

Being an examiner
"Thrill of being an examiner" (June 10) by D.C. Sharma was a diverting piece of writing. The funny and erroneous answers given by the students revealed their inability to write simple and grammatically correct English.
Only those examiners, who thoroughly evaluate answer scripts come across such amusing howlers. Others simply go through the motions of evaluation and award marks according to their whims making or marring the careers of many students.
TARSEM S. BUMRAH,
This refers to "Wiping out intolerance" by C.L. Gulati (May 20). According to Sikh Gurus, there is one Father. Christians and Muslims believe that there is one God and one Allah.
Mutual love, social equality, religious tolerance, as advocated by the writer is the need of the day.
India, being the country of rishis, munis and seers, can lead the universe towards this goal and help bring about universal brotherhood.
