Readers' opinion on articles published in previous Crest editions.

Old gods
Your article 'Old dogs teach us a few new tricks' (Sport, April 14) was interesting. Both Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid are enjoying their player and captaincy roles in this IPL season - in a game which everyone thought is meant only for young legs. Ganguly has done his homework for T20 while Dravid has always been a tremendous learner of the cricketing arts. The ascent of their teams (Pune Warriors India and Rajasthan Royals) in the league so far is ample proof of Ganguly and Dravid's zest for the game, even though they're both close to 40. These two have brought some colour to IPL 5, which otherwise appears to be a wasteland of ideas.

Partner in time
The return of Sasikala, twice estranged 'sister' of Jayalalitha, to the AIADMK party (' Look who's come home!' Society, April 7) was very interesting to read about. It must have surely relieved some of Amma's stress. The 100-day separation seems to be more or less over and Sasikala should be seen back at Jaya's side now. Having been together for 24 years they both clearly value their relationship. Amma's secluded lifestyle means she needs someone she can trust and who understands her. Cho Ramasamy, her political advisor, did not fill this vacuum over those hundred days. In life everyone needs a partner or friend to share a lot.

Turning a page
Umberto Eco's views on e-books (' Book futures', Comment, April 14) made for an enlightening read. And he's quite right about technology pushing up the reading habit. Since buying a digital reader I have found myself reading a lot more than I used to earlier. Portability is the greatest advantage of such e-readers, which can be carried around anywhere with maybe a hundred books inside. But the feel and comfort of paper is still special, as Eco so fondly recalls. I can read in bed, or while travelling, with my digital reader too, but turning the pages of a print book is something I greatly miss.
