A bold attempt

Arvind Kejriwal has done the right thing by jumping into politics (“Aam admi takes to politics” by Vibha Sharma, Oct 7) as it is the need of the hour. The battle against corruption can be best fought in Parliament, though agitations on the street are also important tools to pressure the government. If the aam admi is serious about rooting out corruption, he must vote in favour of a crusader like Kejriwal. Team Anna should reconcile with Kejriwal and take the anti-corruption movement to its logical end.

Team Kejriwal entered the cesspool of politics out of frustration. But in a country where all things matter, but not the candidate himself, Team Kejriwal may get a rude shock. If they want to succeed, they will have to take some tips from the existing political system. Manpreet Badal’s honesty and integrity had generated hope, nevertheless he lost in Punjab. Anna’s idea of working as a pressure group has more chances of success than actually fighting the electoral battle.

Pak stands exposed

Apropos Raj Chengappa’s article, “In the badlands of Pakistan, trouble returns” (Ground Zero, October 14), short-term solution to terrorism yields no results. Suppression of the Taliban or killing Obama failed to resolve the problem. Terrorists retaliated by imposing the draconian version of Sharia, destroying schools for girls, forcing women back to their homes and treating them like a commodity. Pakistan, particularly its army, tried to project that it was against terrorism. The truth has come out in the open in the form of innocent Malalas being targeted by militants. Sponsored terrorism is bound to target its sponsor sooner than later.

Ved Guliani, Hisar


The attack on Malala was a barbaric act by the Taliban, brainwashed into regressive realms of religious dogma. Little Malala’s views are more mature than her age. She is an inspiration to girls across the world. Her tragic story has touched many hearts. She is not only the daughter of Pakistan, but also a great example of bravery throughout the world. Everyone is proud of her.

Delightful all the way

A great thinker, philosopher, critic, satirist, reformer and at times, a naughty, witty joke teller, Khushwant Singh captures the heart and mind of his readers through his writings. I was mesmerised by the terse and telling cartoons of Satwant Singh in “No full stops for this Sardar” (Nirupma Dutt, Spectrum, October 14). I am eagerly awaiting a book on Khushwant’s cartoons as promised by the cartoonist. It would be a source of enjoyment for his fans, and that too without any stops.
