It is heartening to know that the big cats are thriving
With reference to the editorial Track those pugmarks (Our Take, March 29), the increase in tiger population, in spite of the shrinking forest area and widespread poaching, is indeed a cause for joy.
It shows that India can still preserve its national assets. Hopefully, the tiger will serve as a precedent for saving other species of wildlife in the country.

A pitch fit for a battle
This refers to the editorial The gentleman's gamble (The Pundit, March 28). Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's decision to invite the Pakistani president and prime minister for the India-Pakistan cricket semi-final at Mohali is foolish.
Relations might deteriorate if the guest team loses in front of its political masters. A cricket match can never have a happy ending for both teams. Why take a chance?

Not the best of ideas
With reference to the report VCs demand law for 10% fee hike every 3 years (March 27), the proposal is neither legal nor logical. Nobody seems to be considering that the brunt of increased pay will be borne by students forced to pay higher fees.

More noise than substance
This refers to the editorial Jaitley does it (The Pundit, March 29). Arun Jaitley's comments on Hindutva has exposed the hollow claims of the BJP that positioned itself as the only party caring for Hindutva.
People should be wary of political parties that exploit their religious sentiment in order to garner votes.
