I am humbled and amazed by the subject of the article 'Iron women of the revolution' (' Pawn Stars', Cover, December 31). These women around the world, who have shown such firm fortitude in order to vanquish tyranny, are not just to be lauded but also adored. Their fearless confrontations with hardliners for the sake of leading normal lives in their own land, unafraid of any possible humiliation, make me think of them as fearlessly walking on hot coals. They have set an example to be emulated. Such 'fire' is mandatory for achieving equality and emancipation in every sphere of life, for women suffering all over the world.

Your article 'And Quiet Must Flow the Don' (Comment, December 31) was bold and beautiful. Don Bradman's awe-inspiring batting feats are not the be-all and end-all of cricket. Aesthetics matter greatly too. Tendulkar has delighted the world here. And as correctly noted in the article, Bradman's limited geographical playing area, his 'rotary' grip - which even his countrymen don't emulate - and the fact that he never was a team man (perhaps why Keith Miller was never able to claim as much 'greatness' ) go against him. In contrast, Tendulkar has won a billion and more hearts. That settles the matter, he is indeed the tallest batsman of all time.

Double delights

The article 'Sunny daze' (Comment, December 3) was an interesting read. Sunny Leone, with her Indian roots, must be credited for her courage to appear on a major reality show on Indian television. She clearly seems to be someone with both beauty and brains. I wish her all success. And I must point out that, in some ways, she does what everybody else does too - the only difference is that she has cameras trained on her, by design. At least she is making a great living. We should do away with our double standards when it comes to judging people with public profiles like hers.
