Not so high

The Punjab Police has done a commendable job by exposing the politician-drug mafia nexus allegedly involved in the large-scale drug trade in the state (“Breaking the Punjab cartel” by Aman Sood; Sunday Tribune, November 24). It is shameful that lawmakers indulge in unlawful activities with impunity to perpetuate political power. It is imperative to hold a CBI inquiry into the drug racket and bring the guilty to book. This will discourage smuggling from Pakistan, curb crime and save the Punjabi youth from further ruin.

Right choice?

This refers to ‘Comatose governance will not do’ (Sunday Tribune, November 24). The writer has explained well how Nawaz Sharif’s insecurity is coming in the way of his meeting people’s expectations. They had voted him to power to see Pakistan free from terrorism and economic woes. Sharif is walking on eggshells just to serve his own political interests. His abdication of responsibilities as a head of the country will only push Pakistan further deep into chaos and uncertainty. He needs to rise to the challenge to prove that he is the right choice of the people.

Tarsem Singh, Langeri


Nawaz Sharif should not squander his hard-earned third term. He must act proactively with prudent policies not only to improve and secure Pakistan, but also act resolutely to improve relations with India. He should understand any positive development between the two countries will augur well for him as well as Pakistan. It will bring peace to the region and improve infrastructure, trade and sports.

Away from darkness

Apropos the article ‘They don’t know what darkness is’ by Raj Chengappa (Ground Zero; Sunday Tribune, November 24), the visually impaired people are divinely gifted with inner light. Blindness neither debilitates them nor keeps them from pursuing their passion. Without any fear or complex, they visualise the world through their ‘mind’s eye’. We should treat them considerately, recognise their capabilities and encourage them to realise their full potential.

Lessons in skills

The article ‘Lighting up lives’ (Spectrum, November 24) is practical wisdom in terms of innovations requiring replication in the entire country. We certainly require the development of micro and small enterprises based on ‘jugad’ technology, which should be patented. For sufficient financing of such projects, we need to replace subsides with zero rate of interest, which is essential for developing entrepreneurship. Talented pioneers should be recognised as trainers and be available to all states and union territories of India.

Dr MM Goel, Kurukshetra
