A week-long read
Recently, I made a pleasant observation in a sleepy suburb of Chennai. I saw a group of people waiting near the news stand to pick up copies of TOI-Crest (Jan, 15) and all of them were in a hurry. Later, I realised that they were attracted by the cover - 'Litmus test for science' - and wanted to read it in their 'after hours' from Monday through Friday! In small towns where there's nothing much to do after work hours, reading publications, like TOI-Crest, is a contructive way to spend the time. Please, do keep up the good work.

The science cover of TOI-Crest (Jan, 15) was fantastic, especially the interview with Roger Penrose. I got to learn so many new scientific terms. It also prompted me to search the net for more information on Penrose and Schrodiner's cat. Being a science student in a rural area puts me at a disadvantage. Here, we are taught only about the big daddies of science. So, it's only through publications like TOI-Crest do we get to know about contemporary scientists. Thank you so much for spreading the light of science.

Your reporter candidly brought out the plight of elderly persons in 'Senior, secondary' (Jan, 15). It's a pity that in their old age when people need maximum care, they are shunned by the system that is largely insensitive to their needs. It's very true that most footpaths are dangerous for senior citizens to walk on because of their uneven surfaces. Similarly, little concern is shown to those who are trying to cross a busy road. It's only when we learn to respect our elders, will our youngsters respect us in our old age.
