Reader's Opinion

Your say

Pink and yellow

Apropos of the ghastly Delhi gangrape case, covered in your paper in several stories, one simple and easy way to implement a solution for women looking to travel safely is to make all public transport buses segregated - with the front sectioned off for females with separate boarding and alighting doors. This will also provide for more job opportunities for women as conductors. Similarly autos and taxis could also be made 'women-only', say maybe 25 per cent of fleets, and painted pink and yellow perhaps. They should also ply 24 hours a day. This will help us better address the most common public facility where every female has been harassed at some time or the other.

Safety pining

I am a 17-year-old girl and I'm terrified and filled with frustration (' Morcha Mindset', December 29). Why now? Because finally people have come out to protest against the horrendous crimes committed against women in our capital city. I thank the media for highlighting this incident otherwise this Delhi gangrape case would have been suppressed by the police the same way thousands of other cases are. This is a mark of shame for our society. I will soon be in college and have parents, who like other parents, have sleepless nights just because they have a daughter at home who has to be protected in broad daylight too. This definitely calls for a social revolution.

Same old Bolly folly

I disappointed to see the absence of Malayalam films in your 'Best of Indian Cinema' (December 29). This is in spite of 125 films produced last year and the maximum contribution to the Indian panorama section of IFFI, Goa. We have come a long way from the days when only Bollywood was considered Indian cinema, so why do this again? In fact the golden period of Malayalam cinema, during the 1980s, has largely gone unchronicled, not only due to the poor interest shown from the critics in the north but also because of existing prejudice towards southern cultural mores. I sincerely hope Crest would discourage such biased reportage in keeping up with your own high standards.
