Let's read the writing staring at us from the blackboard
This refers to Ashok Malik's article It's a no-brainer (September 8). The debate is not about who runs educational institutions. The problem is that the quality of education is not up to the mark and that people from all sections of society aren't benefitting from it. India needs more enterprising people - both in the public and private sectors - who oppose commercialisation of education to lead from the front to usher in a revolution in our education sector.

Stay away, not in the way
The editorial Roadblocks to recovery (Our Take, September 9) rightly states that VIPs who visit hospitals to meet terror victims get in the way of their timely treatment and disturb other patients. If politicians really care about us, they should perform their duties of improving law and order and bringing those responsible for spreading terror in
India to justice. And if they want to give some special instructions regarding the treatment of the victims, they can just make a call to the hospital authorities.

Loopholes in the safety Net
With reference to Subimal Bhattacharjee's article Weaving a of web terror (September 9), the bomb blast outside the Delhi High Court on Wednesday could have been avoided if the owner of the cyber café from which the mails were sent hadn't flouted the rules. As Bhattacharjee rightly states, he should have been aware and used some common sense when the email was being sent from an account that sounds like the name of a terrorist group.
