Super Saina’s back with another magnificent victory

Hats off to Saina Nehwal for winning the Hong Kong Open Super Series by defeating Shixian Wang of China, making up for her disappointing performance at the recently-concluded Asian Games. Capping her career’s fourth Super Series title is a magnificent achievement for Nehwal, who has also made her country proud.

The self-interest principle

With reference to Sitaram Yechury’s article Back to housekeeping (Left Hand Drive, December 14), Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has no need to worry about Parliament closing sine die. Politics deals only with the self; political decisions can thus go against national interest. Morality, ethics, philosophy are of very little concern, so it is possible to argue that Hemant Karkare was killed by Hindus or the attack on Mumbai’s Taj Hotel was led by Indians.

It seems the Congress is under siege from all sides, barely getting time to extricate itself from one embarrassment when it is plunged in the next. Both Digvijaya Singh’s comments on Hemant Karkare’s death and home minister P Chidambaram’s remark about the migrant population are irresponsible and intemperate.

No first among equals

I am unable to understand why such a hue and cry is being made about Indian envoys undergoing security checks at US airports (Shed turban, envoy to UN told at US airport, December 14). In the US, every citizen is treated equally in the eyes of law, which an Indian politician or bureaucrat, used to enjoying privileges, cannot understand.
