India's IT revolution? That's corrupt too
'Why We Are Like This Only', (August 27) provided serious perspectives instead of tamasha. The article's definition of corruption (' taking advantage of other people and giving unfair advantage to certain kinds of people' ) also makes Infosys and N R Narayana Murthy corrupt. The Indian IT industry's taking undue advantage of low wages and costs here, and then giving unfair advantages to foreign clients is also a form of corruption.

Bribe givers must also be punished
'Why We Are Like This Only', (August 27) shows the degree of corruption rampant in our country and the lackadaisical approach towards the same. Ethics is unheard of in practice but quite often preached from podiums by so-called stalwarts. A 'giver' of a bribe is equally guilty and should merit equal punishment on par with a bribe 'taker'. We need to do our home work and jurisprudence must take notice of this point seriously.

Anna critics, plan for the end!
Thanks for publishing a Planning Commission member's views (Comment, August 27) about Anna's movement. It exposes a lack of vision and complete lack of identification with the masses. The writer's ego-centric attitude, is also exemplified by the last sentence of her stuffy article: 'she did not write a word about our interview'. Why would a young journalist write about obsolete ideas?
