If Manu Sharma can get bail on demand, why can't others?
With reference to the editorial Take his word (The Pundit, November 19), Manu Sharma, who killed Jessica Lall, seems to get bail whenever he wants. In 2009, when he was out on parole, Sharma misbehaved with people in a bar and got into a fight. He is out again, this time on the condition that he can't go clubbing. It's surprising that while criminals like Sharma use influence and money power to get bail every now and then, other prisoners are often denied it, even if they deserve it.

A hole in the Wall's career
Rajdeep's Sardesai's article A brick in the wall (Beyond the Bite, November 2011) was a good analysis of Rahul Dravid both as a cricketer and as a person. However, his defence of Dravid's declaring the Indian innings against Pakistan when Sachin Tendulkar was batting on 194 as being “the result of a philosophy that always puts team above individual” is hard to digest. No amount of reasoning can justify Dravid's decision, given the fact that he declared the innings without informing or consulting Tendulkar.

Let's stop digging the dirt
The editorial Dirty Picture (The Pundit, November 16) made for interesting reading. Not only rural areas, but most of our metros have poor garbage disposal facilities. The minister of rural development Jairam Ramesh is right in stating that India is one of the filthiest countries of the world. The need of the hour is to educate people to keep their surroundings clean and inculcate this habit in children.
