Least said, soonest mended

Chuck Hagel’s remarks corroborating Pakistan’s accusations against India of fomenting trouble are ill-timed (“Hagel must set the record straight on India soonest” by Raj Chengappa). Unless retracted, these are bound to have serious ramifications. It may affect the composite dialogue process to improve ties with Pakistan. It may also deter India from making any efforts towards the development of war-ravaged Afghanistan. It may encourage the Taliban and other radicals to implement their destructive agenda again. Hagel should address India’s concerns.

Total recall

It is true some elderly people want to visit their birth places across the border of India and Pakistan (“Endearing tales from exquisite Lahore”, March 3). Their dreams will remain dreams so long as the visa regimes of both countries are not eased. It would be a noble deed by both countries to help people on either side to experience the beautiful panorama that exists on both sides of the border.

Clip wings

Apropos “Sukhbir spreads his wings” by Jangveer Singh (Sunday Tribune, March 3), the SAD is on a winning spree. But it doesn’t augur well for democracy if we take the means of such winnings as a template for victory. Such victories are based on muscle and money power and the use of government machinery rather than ethics and quality of candidates. Targeting a handful of poor voters and luring or threatening them to cast vote in one’s favour is hardly fair. This applies to all parties. We are glorifying unethical practices. Should we not clip such wings rather than allow them to be a role model for young politicians?

Many misses

Apropos “The PC’s hits and misses” (Sunday Tribune, March 3), the priority should be to control inflation. Food inflation is very high even though the government has buffer stocks and foodgrains are rotting in the open. The next thing is education. We have around 700 districts in India. Each district should have at least one multipurpose university. Private sector should be roped in and given tax concessions. Only after achieving universal education can we dream of becoming a super power.

He is her

Life begins inside and manifests outside. If we develop a good relationship with our own self, we can have a good relationship with others (“How he should reach out to her”; Spectrum, March 3). Men and women must appreciate each other’s feelings. Men should recognise the woman inside them to bond better with their gender.
