Feeding on the hate

This refers to 'Deflating victim Narendra Modi' (Politics, July 6). Little do the haters of Mr Narendra Modi realise that the more they hate him, the more he grows from strength to strength. Perhaps he is the only politician in Indian history who as had to face so virulent a hate campaign as the one mounted by his detractors. And not only has he faced it bravely but he has also utilised it to his advantage. People who do not have anything to do with politics realised the game plan. It may be recalled here that late VP Singh was responsible for the exponential growth of BJP due to his wrong policies when he was prime minister. Similarly, Modi-versus-Rest campaign has helped Modi to strengthen his position even more strongly.

Unlikely to whom?

Apropos 'On the Biryani Trail' (Food & Wine, July 6) I must say that I really 'enjoyed' your article and rushed out to down a really large serving of Lucknawi biryani in Gurgaon soon after reading it. In addition, I'd like to point out a big miss from this list, on account of the writer's neglecting more varied fare from down south. The reference is to biryanis available in Tamil Nadu, especially the 'Dindigul Thalapakatti Biryani' - which, in my opinion, is a 'must try' in the most unlikely of cities associated with this kind of food - in Chennai. I definitely think it would make a worthy inclusion in your quest for documenting and telling us about yummy biryanis across the nation.

Way of the foot

It was inspiring to read the story 'Foot soldiers unite' (July 6). In our mad rat race, that has us working from 9 to 9, we have forgotten to walk. The result is obesity and no family time. A morning or evening walk, preferably with wife and children, is not only good for our wellbeing, but also keeps the family well connected. In the army, we have proper walking plazas in every cantonment. We should even resort to walking to our work places, if it is at a short distance. That will reduce the traffic on roads, as also accidents and tensions in life. The government should also aggressively plan for cycle tracks and walker's paths in every city and town. It will make an impact on the health of the nation.
