The mess in Air India is good news for some politicians
With reference to the editorial A rough flight for Air India (Our Take, June 8), many Air India employees are happy with the tough stand taken by civil aviation minister Ajit Singh. They understand that the striking pilots’ stand may push the government to close down this unprofitable airline. In fact, the AI employees also know that there are politicians in the current ruling coalition who would like to shut down the airline for the benefit of private players.

In today's world, sharing is caring
This is with reference to Shalini Singh's article Stop clicking, start living (June 8). While the author has raised some valid questions, I feel our generation knows how to blend the two aspects of our lives: online and offline. Of course, there are times when someone may overdo certain things but even in such cases, most would not mind. As for the photos, I think it is called living the moment. We hardly look at the photos later or care about them but the act of taking them excites us. Today's world is not about what you own, it's about what you share!

Go strictly by the law
With reference to Indrajit Hazra's article Laws should not unbind (June 7), the court's verdict is not in line with the existing law. If a child below 15 years is compelled to marry against her wishes, she can exercise the 'Option of puberty' under the Muslim law and a similar provision can be found in the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955. As per the law, a girl has a right to repudiate a marriage.
