Just do it

The UPA is firm about going ahead on the nuclear deal. But veteran politician Jyoti Basu is sticking to his stand that India is capable of producing nuclear energy without help. Many Indian nuclear scientists are still against the deal. Surely, by now, the government should have organised a thorough debate on the floor of the House.

Prem Jha’s It’s now or never (October 9) made interesting reading. When the majority favours the nuclear deal, the Left’s stubborn stance against it is unreasonable. The deal is a golden opportunity and the government should not fritter away the hard work of several years. Time-bound action needs to be taken to conclude the deal notwithstanding Left objections. India has almost lost the chance to resolve the Kashmir issue with Pakistan because of this ambivalence.

The Left’s stand on the deal is myopic. The deal’s pros and cons have been analysed to death in the media. Yet, informed opinion hasn’t made any dent in the Left’s ignorant stand.

Cool Kerala

Many articles are trying to show Kerala in a very poor light. Stray incidents are being highlighted as a breakdown of Kerala’s prosperity. Kerala is not Bihar. It is far better in terms of law and order, education and standard of living than any Bimaru state.

Rambling on

With reference to Sri Rama and Sri Hanuman (October 9), such articles are a welcome relief to the tediousness of aimless politics. The article was an apt satire on the politics being played over the Ram Setu project.
