All talk, no action
I liked your cover story 'Animals Under Attack' (Oct 23). It was rather depressing to know that the government is not bothered much about wild animals. I am glad that the authors pointed out how Indians are content to sit back and worship animals and not respect them in real life. The sarcastic comment that the government wants elephants to obey traffic rules when they cannot make humans do the same was brilliant. How about cracking down instead on the rampant constructions in green corridors?

'Just take it easy' (Oct 23) probes an avoidable outcome of cyber revolution in India. In the digital world, teens are okay with going through several "break-ups" which may sound horrifying to parents. Checking the online activities of children is a hopeless job because they are far more net-smart than their parents. A regular and smart conversation between children and the parents can help avoid such scenes.

Needed: wildlife wards
We have a large number of zoos but we don't have specialised training in wildlife medicine. This is the need of the hour. Maneka Gandhi is right when she says that the cruelties we wreak upon animals return to us as disasters (Oct 23). A special curriculum should be implemented by veterinary colleges across the country to provide excellent education in wildlife medicine, breeding and surgery to support as well as increase the zoo animal property.
