PM must act
The report Indian student shot in US, toll three in five weeks (January 21) is shocking. The Indian government should take up the matter with the US administration immediately. It is surprising that our Prime Minister, who was very proactive when Dr Mohammed Haneef was jailed in Australia, has not found time to even condole the deaths of Indian students in the US.

The report Crawl capital (January 18) highlights the plight of the residents of Delhi. Despite so many flyovers and the Delhi Metro, traffic congestion continues to trouble us. This is because urbanisation and commercialisation have reduced the road space and the number of vehicles has increased. The government must put a check on the number of vehicles owned by an individual and force people to use car-pool.

In the 1980s, the Delhi Chamber of Commerce and Industry gave a report to the government about the roads in the capital, which stated, “If the roads are not widened within five years, pedestrians will not be able to cross the roads due to huge traffic”. But nothing was done and the result is there for everyone to see. The only option left now is to build flyovers all over Delhi because there’s hardly any space left to widen the roads.

Kudos to Team India
The victory at Perth was a historic moment. The Indians played some good hard cricket and it was a treat to watch. It is a landmark victory for Anil Kumble who led from the front. It is also a great boost for world cricket as the champions have been humbled at last.

Defeating the Aussies in their backyard is no less than a miracle. The team needed this victory after Sydney where the Aussies played with 14 players including three ICC panel umpires. Congratulations Team India.
