Playtime indeed

This is with reference to the article 'For whom the division bell tolls' (Politics, April 13) by Arati R Jerath. It's pretty clear now that the BJP's only chance to emerge as the single largest party in the forthcoming general election is only when it clearly projects Narendra Modi as is prime ministerial candidate irrespective of whether that party's anti-Modi faction accepts it or not. L K Advani after being perhaps the staunchest follower of the Hindutva ideology is now projecting himself as 'secular' only in the twilight of his political career, and we all know why. The media is only playing along with the attention seeking politicians and political parties.

Puritan pleasures

True film buffs, like me, are really excited at the prospect of seeing old classics, in all their glory, on the big screen (' Getting the big pixel', Cinema, April 13). Using technology to digitise and salvage these golden oldies makes good market sense, especially when one factors in the comparatively low cost involved against the eternal appeal which such movies possess. A preservative exercise like this is definitely a lot better than the needless adventurism of remakes, which pains the lovers of puritan cinema. With their originality intact, HD picture and sound quality make these classics all the more watchable. For cinephiles, it's a gift to drool over.

Our brother now?

Rajyasree Sen's article (Comment, April 13) got it wrong. Narendra Modi was certainly not referring to women as his biological siblings but rather as brothers and sisters of the world as one large family. His reference to mothers and sisters is in similar vein and automatically includes "childless women without siblings" who are as much our sisters. When Modi speaks his speeches are tailor made to the target audience. He speaks with unquestioned sincerity and sense of purpose, studying and analysing problems, finding solutions, seeking feedback and delivering like a true professional. This is what separates him from most others.
