Ganguly's IPL comeback is not a stroke he should play
Former Indian and Kolkata Knight Riders' captain Sourav Ganguly has made a mistake by making a comeback to the Indian Premier League (Once a Knight, Ganguly now a Pune Warrior, May 4). After being 'rejected' by all franchises during the league auction, the master batsman had rightly decided to retire from the game. His decision to play for the Pune Warriors now is surprising. It remains to be seen if Ganguly can play under someone he mentored — Pune Warriors captain Yuvraj Singh — when he was the India captain.

Terror trail ends in Pakistan
Kanwal Sibal in Attrition Abbottabad (May 3) rightly states that the killing of Osama bin Laden alone won't end terrorism. There is no doubt now that the Pakistani government not only supports but also nurtures terrorist groups on its soil. The fact that it sheltered the terror tsar in one of the most secured cities of the country confirms that Pakistan poses a grave threat to world peace. Hopefully, now the world will understand what India has been saying for years.

Keep the peace within first
The report Maoists kill 9 security men, injure 30 in Jharkhand (May 4) raises questions about the UPA government's ability to fight terror, both internal as well as external. Almost everyday, Maoists are killing security personnel and people, while the government is doing nothing about it. If India aspires to a permanent membership on the United Nations Security Council, it should first set its house in order.
