Reader's Opinion on articles published on previous Crest edition.

Be good, keep smiling

The real incidents about the difficulty of being good are thought-provoking. (Cover story package, January 12). Recently, I accompanied my friend to a psychiatrist where I observed a small boy asking for something and getting slapped by his father. The father walked out and left the mother crying. She told me the boy was suffering from hyperactivity. When the man returned I bowed to him and asked him not to beat the boy. I don't know how he reacted after my request. Did he learn to control his anger? Or did he shout at his wife for sharing her sorrow with an unknown woman like me? Does he continue to beat the small boy all the more? Many times I worry whether my intervening was right or wrong.

Powder keg tours

The article 'Bullish on Siachen' (January 12) was very informative and forward-looking in advocating the opening of the glacier for mountaineers to scale peaks. It is a positive suggestion which can help convert it into a hot tourist spot. Thanks to modernisation logistics has considerably improved in Siachen and casualties due to weather have also come down. So tourism can further help in improving life in this most inhospitable terrain. But at no cost can we afford to demilitarise the glacier, as that will enable Pakistan to join up with China and cut-off Ladakh from us. So let's keep our powder dry but open parts of Siachen for adventure sports and tourism.

Want not, waste not

'Love Guru' by Anisha Anand (This is India, January 12) evoked decidedly mixed reactions in me. Perhaps, the thought behind setting up a "love school" is a progressive one, but it cannot be ignored that the Chaudhary mentioned in the story had a past that is not easily digested. Cheating on one's wife is unethical regardless of cultures or countries, in my opinion. There are many means of indulging in relationships that have been justified over time, such as ending one before starting another but all are intrinsically problematic. The wife's expose was not commendable either. The dynamics of such a scandalous situation must be considered carefully.
