She’s professional, she’s talented, she’s Saina
This has reference to Super Saina wins series (June 21). Saina Nehwal’s grit and determination is worthy of praise. This young badminton star has proved her mettle by winning several matches in a row. Unlike her contemporaries in other sports who are busy doing ads, Nehwal comes across as a rare gem with single-minded resolve. Now that other sports are winning accolades, the government of India must also spare a thought to these games. We must realise that there is a world beyond cricket.

The might of rights
With reference to the editorial First the Bill, then the will (Our Take, June 21), the draft law on sexual harassment at the workplace comes across as a positive move as it will ensure women’s safety. And the fact that the law is applicable to the unorganised sector as well is even better because it’s in these sectors that most of the exploitation takes place. The law would help empower women to take their offenders to task. Women need to be made aware of their rights against harassment and should assert themselves whenever the need arises.

Both vote and support
I agree with Pankaj Vohra in BJP needs all the allies it can get (Between Us, June 21). At this point in time when the BJP is losing ground at the Centre, it needs to take the support of the regional parties like the JD(U) in order to make a comeback on the national political stage. Similarly, even as Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar may be miffed with Narendra Modi and his anti-Muslim image, it would be foolish of him to let their alliance sour as this would lead to a loss of support.
