Chandamamas, all

Apropos 'Why spare private sector from disclosure?' (Cover story package, May 18), with most employees in private companies if anyone dares question any malpractice they are rewarded with only one thing - dismissal. This is the stark truth which prevents private sector employees from becoming whistleblowers as they know very well that any sort of questioning their bosses is going to put their bread and butter at stake. What makes this sadder still is the fact that even government is reluctant to include private companies in the Bill pending in Parliament. It seems all major political parties do not want to annoy the corporate world as it is big business tycoons who 'help' them financially in the form of so called chanda (political donations).

Dravidian view

The article 'The loneliness of Rahul Dravid' (Sport, May 18) made for very interesting reading. It is sad that Dravid had to remain content with only demigod status throughout his career despite the fact that he walked on ice, water and fire for his team when the situation demanded. It is really painful that this legend has to face the trauma of his IPL players being involved in the spot-fixing saga. But his stature will surely not be diminished and he will stand tall at the end of it, as he has always in his illustrious career. No wonder, a banner carried by a fan during a match read, "Sachin is the 'God' of cricket, Laxman was the 'God' of fourth innings, but when the doors of the temple close in the evening, all the Gods are behind The Wall".

Bolly vaccine needed

With reference to the article 'Television's raga points' (May 11), I would like to express my joy at reading about the introduction of an exclusive TV programme which will spread classic music far and wide across the country. But to do so on a sustained basis - and it's high time we did this - the programme should have all sorts of classical music, including Western classical music features. We've had enough of MTV;it's time to have a 'CTV' now. And it's not just a matter of simple demand and supply either. The general masses just don't know what they are missing because of the painful onslaught of the ever-expanding Bollywood virus. Let's hope for change here.
