Dipping standards
I have been a subscriber of Times Crest for a little over six months and mostly find it fun to read. However, I note that the depth of the stories being covered by you is reducing e. g. your cover story on the Indian housewife. It was about the affluent urban housewife and not about the average Indian housewife. What about the large number of rural women who have to double up as bread earners and housewives? Can a story on the Indian housewife be complete without an in-depth study of their plight and their achievements across social strata?

Honesty be damned

'Where does the buck stop?' by Anil Dhar ( March 19), rightly focuses on the all-pervasive corruption in our country. We have reached a stage where people are losing faith in the system. The nation is gripped by a crisis of confidence. Everybody seems to be engaged in the competitive pursuit of material gains by any means. Character building has to begin in homes and schools. Only then can we have good bureaucrats, politicians, and others. Sadly, in our country, honesty does not pay.

Liberate Libya

This is with reference to 'Time for Tripoli' ( March 12 ). US President Barack Obama is adopting a cautious approach in handling the uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East. America, the world leader, has had a bitter experience in heralding a democratic era in Iraq. Its experience is also not very different in Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia and Bosnia. But ultimately, Western Powers adopted a UN Security Council resolution to authorise military action in Libya. It is beyond one's comprehension why India abstained on this issue.

300 characters gives too little space for constructive comments or for a new post. You may like to recondider- Sri Bimal Mohanty 2.5.11

This is not fancy meandering but borne out of experience of sadhaks from thousands of years. People who have developed this consciousness are often seen to lead a contented life with all their basic needs miraculously taken care of . They live in great peace of mind, content with their inner self (a

'Mortal comeback' written by Diya Banerjee, which appeared in the edition of 28th march 2011 was a compelling read!My own observation on this issue is that we just can't laugh away these parapsychological phenomenas.I would suggest sceptics to read 'Life Beyond Death' by Swami Abhedananda.
