New dog, old tricks

Those of us who have 'fathered' pets would relate intimately to Christine Pemberton's 'A dog-eatdog world' (Society, July 28). The cover picture refreshes many bittersweet memories for those who have had pets of distinct ages. I've personally been a witness to the myth of the older dog being a 'danger' to the younger one being shattered with the very first encounter between the two. All that the article talks about - the askance looks on the older dog's face, the annoyed walking away - is true to the core. Those memories are amongst the most cherished of my life. I am sure those who can empathise with me would agree.

Seeing red

It is all very well to disseminate information through topical articles in your newspaper like 'The Green Circuit' (Eco-Logic, August 4), but in a country like ours where a sizable number or people do not even have a roof over their heads, such writings tend to become farcical. Besides, where is the expertise required to make 'the green circuit' in Grade B towns and cities, where even vaastu compliance is the result of half-baked knowledge? With not much help forthcoming from the government, such green buildings, using solar light and wind power are more an exception than the norm.

Gender games

Though I belong to West Bengal I've lived in Faridabad since 1971. It is now my second home town. And while Haryana has been famous for agriculture and industry, it's infamous for its poor record on women's rights. But your cover story 'Ringing in change' (August 4) on the sports revolution for Haryana girls was great. The way Haryana backed so many boxers and other sportspersons' right to play, from school level to an employment guarantee, is a model other states could emulate. This will surely fetch even better results in the future. Kudos to the Haryana government for its encouragement of sports.
