The coverage that’s passed the DU admissions’ test
Congratulations to Hindustan Times for its robust coverage of the Delhi University (DU) admission process (Campus Calling). As a retired professor, I feel that your reports are helping many DU aspirants solve their queries related to the process. Stories on should college be chosen over course and the black marketing of admission forms, profiles of various colleges and courses, and side stories on facilities in and around the campus are highly informative and timely.

A badge of dishonour
With reference to the report Girl killed for honour (June 2), it’s shocking that despite the media bringing it to the attention of the government, honour killing is on the rise. In this case, a Meerut girl, who married outside her caste, was brutally killed by her father and brother and the khap panchayat did not oppose it. Isn’t it high time for state governments to punish those indulging and promoting such malpractice?

Israel’s a serial offender
The recent attack on a flotilla of civilian aid ships by the Israeli Defence Forces is inhuman and unjustified. The international community should impose strict sanctions on Israel. It has time and again breached various directives of the United Nations and violated human rights, and has been openly promoting State-backed violence. This must end at the earliest.

The Left’s in the red
The results of the West Bengal civic polls confirm that the Left Front bastion has failed to garner public support because of its own shortcomings (Cyclone Mamata breaches red fort, June 3). By voting the Trinamool Congress to power in the civic polls, the people of West Bengal have clearly expressed their desire to see Mamata Banerjee as the next chief minister of the state.
