Apropos of the report Nursery rhymes face saffron sack (June 14), there is nothing wrong with the MP government’s move to replace decades-old nursery rhymes with new ones. It is actually a good idea, provided that the new ones are catchy and easy-to-learn.

Caribbean cricket

Apropos of Gulu Ezekiel’s article The other India (June 13), I do not agree with the view that “if cricket is still alive in the West Indies today, it is largely due to the interest among the Indian community”. Looking at the present West Indies team, it is clear that Afro-Caribbean players are still a big component of the Caribbean cricket. On the other side of the spectrum, let us not forget Indo-Caribbean cricketer Robin Singh, who played for India. Moreover, Sonny Ramadhin was not a left-arm spinner.

Healing touch policy

In the last couple of weeks, attacks on pilgrims and civilians in J&K have created panic among tourists. Even the security agencies are unable to check these attacks. Is this the ‘healing touch’ policy of the state government?

Misleading report

The report Indian Army: A family shoot (June 12) is not responsible journalism. The reporter missed the point that the film was meant to motivate today’s youth, which is hankering after lucrative jobs and avoiding joining the armed forces as these can’t compete with the private sector in terms of pay and perks. The media should report such sensitive issues in a
responsible way.

Unruly fans

The way Amitabh Bachchan fans and Samajwadi Party supporters have reacted against the I-T Department’s notice to Bachchan is disgraceful. In the process they have resorted to vandalism of a kind portrayed by villains’ gangs in some of the Big B’s movies.
