Anna Hazare's campaign against corruption is a runaway success given the whole-hearted support extended by the people who want zero-tolerance to corruption. The movement has had the astounding effect of pushing the government to do some soul-searching. The tempo needs to be sustained till the movement achieves the desired result. The government is on the back foot, given the plethora of scams it is submerged in. The government must send a loud and clear message that there is no escape for the corrupt however influential one might be.

Gandhi, the Mahatma
'The Man Behind the Mahatma' (April 2) exposes the white man's prejudice against Mahatma Gandhi. Judging Gandhi by his experiments with brahmcharya is of no relevance. His contribution to humanity consists in the struggle he led against imperialism, restoration of human dignity and equality of all human beings, liberating the oppressed from subjugation, commitment to truth, transparency, and non-violence. He must be counted in the category of Buddha, Mahaveer, Christ and Guru Nanak Dev.

Your cover story 'Manali to Manila' (Mar 26) offered us an exciting journey. It is a travel guide with so many options for holidays that people planning a vacation would love to read and preserve. The concept of travel has undergone a sea change in India today. In the old days, a family's travel was restricted to a radius of 200 km from their residence. But now, one can think of and afford to travel through the length and the breadth of our country. Foreign travel too is now commonplace. All in all, the cover story stood out brilliantly.
