Regulate self

Apropos “TV vs social media: The rights and wrongs” by Sunil Abraham (Sunday Tribune, Jan 20), Netizens must be cautious while posting or uploading anything on the social media. It could malign someone’s reputation or serve as a criticism with an intention to bring about social change. While the former calls for action, the latter should be welcomed. All active involvement must not be restricted.

Look within

Apropos “Manmohan’s message to Pakistan, don’t mess with us” by Raj Chengappa (Ground Zero, Jan 20), India has realised the ground reality. Pakistan has always behaved unethically, using every opportunity to damage India. Its army is unprofessional and views India as a soft state. A befitting reply should be given to Pakistan on political and economic fronts till it transforms its policy.

Pakistan gives a long rope to its army. The beheading of an Indian soldier was unethical, but both sides have been guilty of barbarism at one time or another. The LoC is a tough place and both sides retaliate in a gruesome manner. Instead of indulging in blame-game, both countries should resolve to follow international norms of engagement.

BJP defeat

Rakesh Lohumi gives credit to Virbhadra Singh for his victory in the recently held Himachal Assembly elections (“The comeback king of the hills”, Jan 20). A fair analysis will reveal it is not the victory of the Congress but the defeat of the BJP due to infighting and poor selection of candidates. It could have won due to the prevalence of an anti-Congress wave.

Not different

Apropos “The incredible shrinking Opposition” (Fifty Fifty, Jan 20), the BJP likes to project itself as a “party with a difference”. Its former president Nitin Gadkari hardly inspired any confidence. The Congress has played the youth card by elevating Rahul Gandhi to the post of vice-president. The BJP must reinvent itself or it will lose its base to regional parties. It has been tolerant to corruption charges against its leaders, proving it is not different.

Inspiring stories

I compliment The Tribune for publishing stories that are an inspiration to the youth. Pieces on Neha Kirpal, Nighat Shafi Pandit and Dr Ratna Bharti reflect their dedication to the cause dear to them. They are the heroes of the common man. Swami Vivekananda had given a call to serve the poor, considering it as an opportunity bestowed by God.
