Get behind the picture

Sanjay Dutt’s photograph on the front page (September 13) is yet another example of how the media glorifies public figures. Surely, a visual of the victims’ kin, assembled in the court premises hoping for justice, would have made for a more appropriate image.
Do the work they do
Abhishek Singhvi in It pays to be nice (September 13) must realise that there is no grudge even if the cost to the nation of Indian legislators is equal that of legislators in other countries. All we want is that our legislators perform their duties with the same fervour as their counterparts do.
Abhishek Singhvi’s comparison of remuneration with that of several other countries is dubious. Parliamentarians in India are known for stonewalling public issues that are up for debate in Parliament, not for doing any public good. This is what the writer must remember.
Fit for a modern world
The film Lage Raho Munnabhai portrays Gandhian ideals and values of truth and non-violence in a humorous form. One must realise that Gandhi’s principles can be equally applied to solve today’s problems. This has been ably demonstrated in the movie.
What’s age got to do with it?
With reference to the editorial Executive summary (September 12), if Jyoti Basu at the age of 93 can lead the party, then why can’t AB Vajpayee? He is still capable of leading the BJP, which has no young leaders of calibre.
Shape ’em up
Everyone is disappointed at the performance, or lack of it, of the Indian hockey team. What the team needs is psychological counselling and extensive psychoprofiling for the players to not crumble under stress.
