I am overwhelmed to go through the Inspired India series of HT. Congrats! The inspired india series really gives excellent HT’s fix for the problems resolved through innovative leadership and measures across India for the cause of masses. Interview with Dr. Devi Shetty for universal healthcare in India is praiseworthy. His vision that government will become a health-insurance provider seems to be very best thing that could happen; and it is happening in some states and can happen in other states.

This is a feedback to the heroics of Dr. Shetty. He has made us realise the meaning of life. By doing service at extremely low rates to the society, after having had earned till a certain age can be a representation of this. It is the greed of man, that asks man to earn more, once he has got what he aimed for. But Doctor demonstrated that once we have the money to fulfill our needs, we should dedicate ourselves to benevolence rather than proliferating our bank savings.

Thanks for publishing such a wonderful article. Dr Shetty is right in saying that private hospitals and government itself doesn’t want such a facility to spread across India. Government hospitals are overburdened and private hospitals don’t want to work without money. I think, the suggested steps if taken will augment the healthcare dramatically in the country.

There are a lot of talents in our country, not only in metros and large towns but also in small towns and villages. On the other hand, India is facing a shortage of researchers. There should be institutes like National Innovation Foundation at state and district level, so that a resident of a small place with a great invention can contribute in development of nation.

With reference to ‘Just 30 days to justice’ (August 10). It is good idea to hear and settled the cases out of court. It definitely helps to reduce the cases in higher courts but instead of this we should know the reason behind these large number of cases like murder, rape and robbery. Unemployment is one of major reason behind these type of offences, so it is better idea to remove these types of offences from the society then how to settle the increasing number of pending cases. - Naveen Sethi, Ferozepur
This refers to “Heart in the right place” appearing under Inspired India series (August 11). This article is sure to inspire every Indian particularly the common man who has to face the monster of gargantuan medical bills for undergoing heart and other major surgeries. India is in need of many more good Samaritans like Dr Devi Shetty of Narayaba Hrudayalaya to come to the rescue of poor and downtrodden. - K Venkataraman, Delhi
It refers to ‘Just 30 days to success’ (HT 10.08.2009). Ours has become an adjournment-based judicial system mainly responsible for delayed justice. Parties take stay-orders on initial date, and then never care to allow the case moving by seeking adjournments on one excuse or other. A division-bench of Supreme Court opined against frequent stay-orders granted by courts that too at a time when parties obtaining stay-orders many-a-times ultimately lose the cases under stay! - Subhash Chandra Agrawal, Delhi
The judges in the court must tackle the case with an intention to decide it in his or her own tenure. The time and process in a case must depend upon the criticality of the case. Most of the cases in lower courts and in small towns are based on fake and counterfeit documents, so judges must go intellectual to solve them.

This refers to "Just 30 days to justice" appearing under Inspired India series (August 10). Justice in 30 days is after all not a utopian dream anymore! The initiative taken by Maharashtra government to settle disputes out-of-court is definitely a revolution of sorts that would help relieve the courts dealing with frivolous and petty cases avoiding wastage of the valuable time of the courts. - K. Venkataraman, Delhi
