Dada must play with a straight bat or get bowled out altogether

With reference to the editorial A play on words (The Pundit, February 9), it seems that Sourav Ganguly is either desperate to play in the IPL or he wrongly believes that Indian cricket would lose its grandeur without him.

Dada must play with a straight bat or get bowled out altogether
With reference to the editorial A play on words (The Pundit, February 9), it seems that Sourav Ganguly is either desperate to play in the IPL or he wrongly believes that Indian cricket would lose its grandeur without him. Why can't he retire from the gentleman's game in a gentlemanly way instead of making a mockery of himself? He didn't blame the media when they were going gaga over his past achievements. So why is he accusing them of 'overplaying' the news of his retirement today?

United they should stand
The editorial The parts of the sum (Our Take, February 9) rightly advises all state-level investigative agencies to assist the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in solving terrorism-related cases and other offences. Petty one-upmanship between the NIA and its state-level counterparts is hampering probes in many crucial cases. This bickering is affecting India's image and encouraging anti-national elements.

More value to their feelings
Sagarika Ghose's article Still old at heart (Bloody Mary, February 9) presents an incomplete picture of the findings of the survey that covers youth in urban India only. It is heartening to note that 50% of youngsters regard their parents as the biggest source of happiness. The figure would have been higher if the survey covered youngsters from rural India too. It's a matter of pride that our youth is career-oriented and respects traditional Indian values even in the 21st century.
