Should be a good run

Shikhar Dhawan is definitely becoming the toast of cricket lovers in India (' Shikhar's Peak', Sport, June 15). He's been consistent and now perhaps with a mature head on his shoulders he knows the importance of every innings, especially with the likes of Gautam Gambhir trying hard to get back into the Indian team. Consequently, Dhawan is not giving his wicket easily and that also without curtailing his strokeplay. The closely cropped hair, the rat-tail tuft, the twirling moustache and the tattooed body - all are bound to make him an advertiser's delight. Like he has burst onto the international stage, it won't take long for him to become an integral part of the advertising one too, provided runs continue to flow from his bat.

Digging away, eh?

I read with a lot of personal interest the little feature (' Drive to Dine', June 15) on food carts/buses/trucks cropping up in India because my partners and I own and operate a dosa truck in a big metro. We are only six months old and are still struggling with permits, permissions, licenses - the usual issues that plague young businesses in India. We also grapple with more infrastructural issues like water and electricity and of course, manpower. It has been a very interesting ride so far. On events (which we call our visits to the residential areas), one of us does deliveries, while the other mans the kitchen, and the other two take the orders. We are hands on and hands deep in the proverbial dirt (definitely not literally).

The real Infoscion

Reading 'Fathers and Sons' (Society, June 15) was good but the whole basis of the article (the comparison ) is flawed. It's fine for sons to follow fathers into family businesses owned and run by one family but it's not alright for a son to follow a father into a company like Infosys which was started as a response to Marwari-owned companies that dominated Indian business. The founders made that very clear, that this would be a 'professional' corporation and not a family shop. So to now see N R Narayana Murthy sneak his son into the company -- -in a powerful position, where the young man could wield a fair bit of influence in the company -is not a good sign for either Infosys or for Indian business.
