All’s not in a name

The Congress vice-president has a golden opportunity to elevate his image in politics (Rahul Gandhi and importance of being earnest; Ground Zero; April 7). But in the era of coalition politics, he is not ripened enough to handle regional satraps who demand a bigger slice from the Centre and, if denied, pose a threat to the alliance. He should address issues relating to unemployment, prices and inflation, women’s and human rights, and prevailing corruption with proactive participation. This will help him gain peoples’ confidence.

Much to do

Apropos Anna Hazare’s interview by Jupinderjit Singh, People have slept far too long (Sunday Tribune, April 7), people are with Anna but he is unclear how to achieve his objective. How can new India be built without controlling Parliament? Unless he helps in sending the right people to Parliament, India cannot be reformed. He has to either jump into the fray or support a party or help candidates of his choice enter politics. We still give and take bribes, and barter our votes. Unless we transform, the nation won’t.

Col RD Singh (retd), Ambala Cantt

Khaki indiscipline

The police head is appointed on political considerations neglecting merit and seniority (“Punjab Police didn’t lose direction overnight”; Sunday Tribune; April 7). There is hardly any in-service training to hone professional skills. The leadership must ensure discipline is maintained in the daily conduct of the police. Political influence must stop. The police should serve the people instead of politicians.

The degeneration in the force is due to political interference overtly justified by realignment of constituencies with police stations. Those who enjoy political patronage are guilty of dereliction of duty. To please their political masters they undermine the entire system. Law and order is the worst casualty. Merit-based selection and accountability are a must.

Sweet success

The success stories of Saroja Vaidyanathan and kinnow grower Sushil Pariwal (Sunday Tribune, April 7) are built on their diligence. The Tribune and its writers deserve kudos for bringing out such stories for the benefit of its readership. These make for a good reading and inspire people to pursue their passion.

Growth for all

To become agents of progress and peace, the Indian corporate sector needs to establish inner-net (not Internet) based on the inside-out approach flowing from ancient Indian perspectives (Charitable Indians; Spectrum, April 7). Willingness to do something for society is necessary for inclusive growth. We can achieve it by understanding, interpreting and adopting “sanskar” management.

Dr MM Goel, Kurukshetra
