Carry on, all the way

Apropos of 'The Goddess Gets the Blues' (Society, September 8) rickshaws of the sort seen in Kolkata, I feel, are against human dignity. We can't have the poor pulling the rich on the roads for a meal. These poor rickshaw pullers must be given cycle or auto rickshaws, or alternate jobs. Maybe the next step could be a ban on the carrying of fat, rich people on poor men's backs to religious shrines like Vaishnodevi, Badrinath etc. It is a humiliating sight to see a man carrying a man. These poor kaundis must also be given alternate jobs. The fat rich would do well to try and walk to shrines. It will not only be good for their health but also for their prayers. No gain without pain.

Promoting trouble

It was interesting to see the delicate relationship between the Congress, SP and BSP at the centre made so clear in the article 'The New Quota Wars' (September 8) about political concerns at the local and national levels for these parties. The quota war is just politics that each party is indulging in for its own benefit. No one really wants this promotions quota Bill. Congress is desperate for some gains, while SP and BSP just want to strengthen their bases. This Bill will be a further blow to a society that needs equality of opportunity. Reservations have to be carefully used. Not like this with so much politics behind every new move.

Change? Seriously?

I have been an avid reader of The Times of India's Crest edition ever since its maiden issue appeared in news stands about three years ago. It has in fact become something of a craze from me - to read an entire edition, which usually keeps me busy reading it for a whole week, from Saturday through Friday. I have found myself fully engrossed in most articles, even reading some repeatedly. But having said that, of late I find that there is the absence of a certain thrill when reading. I initially thought it would just be a passing phenomenon. Is it not time for introspection on your part maybe? For some change in content and presentation for Crest perhaps?

I am a Japanese citizen. I firmly believe India should become Japan's best
partner in the near future because your country has been being one of the most stable democratic nations in Asia and growing a sound free economic system.
India must aggressively encourage our business people to invest.
