This refers to 'Instant Raga' (September 4). Star Singer is very popular among viewers and gives a lot of scope, opportunity and encouragement to talented singers. The tough contest, packed with judges who have in-depth knowledge of classical music, pushes contestants to do their best. In God's Own Country, young and talented youngsters can now make a mark in the field of music. Not only are they grabbing primetime limelight but are also becoming the most sought-after musicians in the state.

Pushing the body
For both men and women, obsessive fitness fads are bad for health (Boy, the curves are gone, Sept 4). We should know the limits to which we can push our bodies. In recent times there have been many well publicised instances of over-exercised people collapsing after an excessive workout session. Surely these should be enough to put us off manic physical training. Instead of encouraging customers to push themselves excessively at the machines, gym trainers should warn them against the perils of testing the body severely.

'The Games' destitutes' (September 4) reflects the ridiculous lengths to which we are willing to go to present a whitewashed face to the world. Do we really believe that our guests will be conned by the cement and steel structures that have come up across the city and presume that we have no poverty? At best we can shove the dirt under our carpet for the guests' scrutiny but we have to get back to living with these problems. I say let us bundle the corrupt games organisers off the city streets, not honest souls like Ratna Bai.
