This is with reference to Masters of Unplanned Growth by Jagmohan (Guest Column, February 18). It was heartening that the writer raised his voice against ill-conceived and inhuman amendments in the 2021 Master Plan. The citizens of Delhi have been victims of unplanned and hazardous growth promoted by politicians and bureaucrats. Honest citizens should unite and join hands to fight against politicians and corruption in the next election.

Jagmohan rightly says that if a city is treated like a lifeless entity, the Master Plan becomes another source of nuisance, promoted at the instance of vested interests.

Firdous Syed’s The courage to say sorry (View from the Valley, February 18) deserves praise for his effort to state an agenda for a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. But I do not agree with his view that wrongs have been inflicted upon Kashmiris since 1947.

Karan Thapar in Sunday Sentiments (When the echo of silence is telling, February 18) cites vote-bank politics and Left concerns as causes of the current limbo in the Indo-US nuclear deal which he believes is inimical to India’s interests in today’s capitalist world of rational self promotion. But isn’t he ignoring India’s very concept as a nation in all this?

Aditya Sinha’s interview with Nobel Laureate John Forbes Nash Jr (The Big Story, February 18) was interesting. A strong social support system is a must for the treatment of schizophrenia, so that patients can realise their full potential.
