Take remedial action
It is a matter of shame for the Delhi police that once again a woman is raped and the police is helpless (Another rape in car; now in Narela, January 2).india Updated: Jan 04, 2006 00:47 IST
It is a matter of shame for the Delhi police that once again a woman is raped and the police is helpless (Another rape in car; now in Narela, January 2). After hundreds of such cases the police is not able to find a solution to the problem. Every time they claim that they have caught the accused, but nothing comes of it, as we seldom hear of any convictions. The police rhetoric continues, louder than ever.
Remedial action and retraining of police personnel are an immediate priority. More training camps must be organised where women can be taught self-defence. Women should carry chili powder with them whenever they go out.

Gudiya is no more
This has reference to the report An early end to a life of trying turns (January 3). one would like to ask what do our worthies, the leaders and the protectors, or media barons do to save the lives of such rare Gudiyas who dare to ‘tread the (majority’s) untrodden path’. How many more Gudiyas are yet to be sacrificed till there’s change in attitude?

Tension for BJP
The BJP has just celebrated its silver jubilee ceremony under a lot of stress because of internal wrangling, the cash-on-query scam and the sex tapes. Now Pramod Mahajan’s case that he took money from Reliance during his tenure as communications minister will increase the party’s tension.
Party chief Rajnath Singh said the BJP will not compromise on corruption and indiscipline. Let’s see what action Ram takes against the Lakshman of the party.

If the charges that Mahajan, as communications minister in the NDA government was the beneficiary in the Reliance Infocom share fiasco are true, he will be guilty of crossing the Lakshman rekha within 36 hours of his coronation as the BJP’s Lakshman by former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The Indian Science Congress to be held in Hyderabad deserves kudos for honouring 12-year-old K. Masha Nazeem for her invention of an effective drainage disposal system for Indian Railways. Such young minds, who are the future of the world, should be encouraged.
