Going cheap

The article 'Eh, what's up, doc? Emigration' (American Idyll, June 2) is in sync with the concerns of our young medical professionals, who could consider jobs at a government medical centre, with its meagre salary sans infrastructure or resources, and ultimately feel helpless, even though they look to serve the nation. Making jobs in public health an enriching experience requires political will, which in this country is a malady never interpreted well. The 'cheapness' of Indian life is a direct consequence of such poor prioritisation of public healthcare. The prognosis might improve if our politicians got better.

Sincerely, yours

I found the article 'The New Face of Films' (Cinema, June 2) very relevant. Over the years, the definition of entertainment has experienced a drastic change;fortunately, for the better. We now see brave directors not looking for huge promotions to cover their insecurities. Films, for this new brigade, have become a platform for honest expression. Movies like Vicky Donor and Paan Singh Tomar are made with so much sincerity that viewers not only gain information but are left with an enriching cinematic experience. The strong determination of filmmakers to develop on their intellectual abilities to produce films of high quality is a pleasing sign.

Vishy washy views

I have been an ardent reader of Crest since I got married, when my husband got me addicted to it. This week's cover (on Viswanathan Anand) would have shocked many a Sachin Tendulkar fan. But it's timely. Sadly, in the country which gave chess to the world, we didn't go gaga over Anand's amazing 5th world championship in the way we did when Sachin finally hit his hundredth international century. Truly, Anand must be handed the Bharat Ratna, taking note of the fact that, sadly, there is very little chance of any Indian carrying his legacy forward in the near future. There are many to break Sachin's records but none to take on Anand's.
