Devesh Kapur and Sunil Khilnani show real concern for the country’s educational needs and the future of India’s human resources (Primary concerns, April 24). The instances and data presented were revelations. The educational sector should be freed from political interests for its proper development.


Naxal menace

Apropos of Manoj Joshi’s article They are the hollow men (April 21), insurgency is far more dangerous than terrorism as it is deeply intertwined with the political system and draws much support from it. It ought to be awkward for India to demand that Pakistan put an end to an established, global network of terror without it being able to disrupt an insurgency operating within its own borders.

Undue publicity

The report Whodunit? Shields missing from St. Thomas School (April 20), was a painful reading because the presentation of the news showed that it was an insider’s job. We asked the reporter not to publish this, as it would attract undue publicity. The reporter should have verified the claims made by the police during her interaction with the principal. A mountain has been made out of a
mole hill.

Change the system

The editorial Demolish the MCD (April 24) has rightly suggested that the corrupt municipal corporation be disbanded. A high-powered institution with representatives of Resident Welfare Associations and the government should be put in place instead to look after civic matters.

Bravo Dhoni

congratulations to M.S. Dhoni for bagging the top-most rank in the records of the ICC, for his super-duper batting in the ODIs. He has left behind even a batsman like Ricky Ponting of Australia and that too within a short period. We hope Dhoni will break many records in future.
