Rare treasures

The cover story about the revival and rebirth of rare arts (April 30) mostly in south and east India was very interesting and absorbing. The tradition of Marathi operas in Maharashtra declined during the last few decades due to the emergence of TV and cinema. But some enthusiastic new generation artistes from Pune, the cultural capital of Maharashtra, are striving hard to revive the Marathi musical dramas in a two-and-half hour new concise format. Their initial efforts are being well received everywhere and audiences are being enthralled.

Foolhardy measures

The so-called radical changes effected by the policy makers of our country have killed the very spirit of competitiveness in the educational arena 'The class divide' (April 30). Without examinations, students while away their time on unproductive things and suddenly face problems in Class 12, when they have to face exams. The Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system might seem to be an effective mechanism but, on the contrary, it is well termed by the students as 'Continuous Child Exploitation'.

Infy's great loss

'The life of Pai' (April 23) makes for a refreshing read. Mohandas Pai is considered to be very eloquent on financial matters. It is doubtless that he has been recognised in India by corporate bodies as a financial whiz kid with added sharp HR skills. However, it is sad to note that Infosys did not make use of his extraordinary talents in nurturing the company better. As far as Pai is concerned, he has nothing to lose since his focus in the future will be to address critical issues in the field of education that will benefit a larger population.

I would suggest that out of the many comments received on-line, it would be great a selected few could be published in your Saturdays' issue of the Crest. This is for your consideration, please. Peemgee, USA
