Two to go please

I enjoyed reading 'Is two too much?' (Society, October 20) and would like to point out that having two kids is a pretty good idea. In such families these two children will provide each other good company all through childhood, and in itself and as they grow, the older one will, quite naturally, teach well the various skills of life to an approving younger one. The second child will also naturally prefer the company of his brother or her sister to the mother, as there is quite obviously the generation gap to consider. The latest trend may be to have only one child for many couples, but two offspring are certainly a good option for such couples to exercise if they can.

Packing in recipes

Regarding 'Bhajji Boom' (October 20), I must ask, has anyone ever tried making and eating pakoras of ridge gourd/tori/jhingee flowers? They fall in abundance during the fruiting season and make for the most delicious pakoras with an attractive, rounded shape, unlike most pakoras we are used to. This is quite a bonus, as these pakoras can even be had stir fried with spring onions and with just a dash of olive oil. And if I may mention another delight, even if a bit unconventional by Indian standards, another pleasant experience is diced aloe vera cooked with channa dal. Both vegetables help with the digestion and aloe vera also eases pain.

Prose and cons

Arati R Jerath (' Glaring Gaffes', October 20) has nicely collated and vividly juxtaposed the dry sense of humour that Mahatma Gandhi had with what our contemporary politicians dole out. Need anybody stress that these politicos should weigh the possible consequences of what they're going to say before letting loose, not to mention the spate of lewd remarks that many seem to unleash at a moments notice in full public glare. Humour is also good for sycophancy: witness D K Barooah's 'India is Indira, Indira is India' quip. But one thing, with the advent of the electronic media politicos cannot say they've been misquoted or quoted out of context. That's great.
