Are judges not human too?

Going through the topics covered by HT in the Inspired India series, I am short of words to praise your efforts. With reference to ‘Make it possible to judge the judges’ (August 3), the judiciary’s refusal to disclose assets and earnings itself places a big question mark on their conscience and accountability. Why should we trust that judges never do any wrong? After all, they too are human beings. It is the need of the hour and the demand of the common man that the judiciary be brought under a strict scanner, like any other Indian institution, and that nobody be treated above the law. The process of initiating a trial or investigation against a judge should also be made easier, as it is in many other countries. When our democracy and Constitution are based on these nations, why can’t this be too?

Thank you for your green lessons

From 20 years, we have been talking about global warming, but done nothing to stop it. The types of houses you have suggested in ‘5.5 lakh homes a year...’ (July 31) would help us reduce all kinds of wastages. Thank you for teaching people that a little investment today could yield lots of savings in the future. We must do all we can to educate people that each step taken by each man can change the world.

Telecom truly could transform lives

Thanks for writing such an impressive article (‘Take a look. These farmers are well-connected’; August 4). In a country like India, where 70 per cent of the population is rural, each such person must be connected through cellphones and the Internet so they can access knowledge about their crops. This truly could transform the economy and millions of lives across the country.
