Kejriwal breaks many rules in his hurry to form a political party
This refers to the editorial The rules apply to everyone (Our Take, August 28). Arvind Kejriwal and his team appear to have run short of patience because they are in a hurry to form a political party. The major difference between Anna Hazare and Kejriwal is that Anna knows the limits of his movement, while the latter is more ambitious. Kejriwal and his team should know that it is the duty of every Indian to follow protocol while protesting before the prime minister's residence.

Neil's trail continues to inspire
This refers to the report Famous lost word in Neil Armstrong 'mankind' quote (August 27). With Neil Armstrong's death, not only America but the entire world has lost a hero whose first step on the surface of the moon changed human history. The Apollo 11 mission, which was led by Armstrong, has inspired many space programmes in the past. It will continue to do so in the future too. We appreciate the fact that Armstrong never took advantage of his enormous fame. That's what made him the real hero.

Silence cannot be an answer
There is no doubt that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has not covered himself in glory in the Coalgate episode, but the conclusions drawn by Sitaram Yechury in It's black days ahead (Left Hand Drive, August 28) are more aimed at taking potshots at the UPA rather than providing any solutions. The prime minister should not avoid all the issues raised by the Opposition. Rather, he must answer them in the right spirit of parliamentary democracy to quell any suspicion of wrongdoing. He must use this opportunity to push administrative reforms to the frontburner and bring about transparency in government functioning.
