Politics should not be used as a means to settle personal scores
With reference to The politics of negativism (Our Take, June 24), it’s hard to forget how Team Anna members Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia failed to contain their political ambitions and utilised what was essentially a social movement to launch a political party.
They should keep in mind their objectives and not lose their way in the maze of politics. If he intends to come to power, Kejriwal should concentrate on formulating strategies for the betterment of the people. Getting personal and ignoring issues of national importance are not likely to lead his party to victory.

Men in blue banish the blues
With reference to the victory of the Indian cricket team in the ICC Champions League, the Indian team’s victory after a nail-biting final against England has done the country proud.
Though it seemed that the rains would spoil the party and delayed the game by over six hours, the spectators’ agonising wait paid off in the end with the game being reduced to 20 overs a side.
Winning the tournament undefeated makes the win even more special. MS Dhoni’s captaincy has time and again led India to victory. His strategic thinking and ability to perform under pressure make him a worthy skipper.

The credit for the victory over England should go to the whole Indian team. This is an apt example of team effort. The victory brings much-needed joy to the country after the distressing floods in Uttarakhand. In Shikhar Dhawan India has found a reliable opener and his consistency throughout the tournament has cemented his position in Team India.
