Inspirational guru

Meenkshi Sinha's interview of Ustad Abdul Rashid Khan (" I don't know where I find this energy", March 9) was truly inspiring. The fact that the ustad, who is 105 years old, seems comfortable with classical music being adapted for reality TV, Bollywood or fusion concerts proves his wisdom and magnanimity. As he argues, music is "just those seven notes, whether it is filmi or classical music. So how can one be nice and the other bad?" The country is proud to have such a great musician. Even today he keeps busy teaching his many students at Kolkata. I pray to God for his long and successful musical life.

Home advantage

Your cover story 'Home Work' (March 9) was extremely well timed. The furore over Yahoo summoning all workers back to office is understandable. There has been a debate on the merits and demerits of flexiwork for a very long time. The articles in your cover story package helped me realise that working from home is not as easy as it sounds. The amount of distractions in the informal home environment necessitates a great deal of multi-tasking. On the other hand, flexible work timings do provide an opportunity to working women to balance office life and household duties without compromising on either front.

Time to look east

Your article 'Upstream challenge' (March 2) on the need to have a good bilateral relations with Bangladesh was very profound and insightful. India is poised to be the fifth largest economy in the world by 2020, and was until recently the second fastest growing economy in Asia. On the other hand, Bangladesh, still haunted by the ghost of the 1971 liberation war, has achieved great success in improving the quality of life of its people. This small but populous country has taken big strides when it comes to human development parameters. India and Bangladesh must cooperate and sort out issues like illegal migration, the Teesta water treaty and the land boundary agreement.
