India doesn’t seem prepared for the Commonwealth Games 2010
Ashok Malik in Playing spoilsport (September 15) has rightly stated that a lot still remains to be done for the preparation of the Commonwealth Games 2010. The government doesn’t seem to have a concrete plan as most of the construction work is harming our environment. Last-minute changes are only complicating the situation. The government must get its act together if it wants to save the nation from humiliation.

National interest is above all
Both the BJP and the Congress should learn a lesson from the editorial Every picture tells a story (Our Take, September 16). The Hindustan Times’ attempt at reminding both the national parties to focus on the welfare of people is praiseworthy. It doesn’t matter which party wins the election. What counts is how much they contribute towards nation-building in their respective roles. Inter-party squabbles should not overshadow the core issue of working for the common good.

We’re losing our green cover
KumKum Dasgupta’s article Local warming (September 16) forces us to reflect upon the lavish urban lifestyle that is worsening the climate problem. With the Copenhagen Summit around the corner, it is high time India planned a comprehensive strategy to save the environment.

Prevention is the best cure
The recent Chinese incursions seem to be the handiwork of those who feel threatened by the cordial relations between India and China. It could also be because India has always been seen as a soft power. While there is no concrete proof of whether China entered Indian territory or not, we cannot completely negate the possibility of a China-Pakistan nexus against New Delhi. India should be prepared for everything.
