It's not your way or the highway anymore in cities
With reference to the report Control traffic to tame road rage, shows study (January 14), Delhi has witnessed too many incidents of road rage with tragic endings. A total disregard of the rules of driving is the reason they take place. The only way out is strict enforcement of traffic rules to curb reckless driving and fining those who overtake from the wrong direction, drive while speaking on cellphones and park their vehicles wrongly.

For more food on the plate
With reference to the report Inflation climbs higher, govt gropes for options (January 15), it is a pity that political parties are engaged in their usual one-upmanship on an issue that affects common people. Food inflation can be tackled if the governments at the Centre and in states act in unison to increase supplies to states suffering shortages and clamp down on hoarders and profiteers. Unfortunately, there has been no unified action on the issue. The government should act to mitigate the sufferings of the aam aadmi instead of shedding crocodile tears.

Giving peace a chance
This refers to Tony Blair and Ghazi bin Muhammad's article A ripple-effect of goodness (January 14) about the importance of religious tolerance and harmony in our lives. Surrounded by communal hatred and religious extremism, we don't appear eager to accept and respect each other's beliefs. To spread the message of peace and fraternity and send out the message that we are not prejudiced against each other, the World Interfaith Harmony Week must be celebrated together.
