Watch the villages

The story on the government's poor spending on the social sector was extremely well-researched (Farewell, State, August 14). A good 70 per cent of our population lives in our villages, but those at the helm of the country's affairs cannot be bothered with pumping funds into the agrarian sector. Our netas evince more interest in the short-term gains that accrue from investing in the urban areas but totally neglect the rural belt. Is anybody giving any value to the sage advice of the experts?

Dark cyberway

With extremely sophisticated gadgets and jaw-dropping advances in the field of information technology, cyber crime is now on the rise (Stalkers on Cyberway, August 14). Anyone can, under the cover of cyber anonymity, humiliate a woman over the internet by posting false information about her. The manner in which the IT Act has been framed makes it difficult for a woman to lodge a police complaint. The process is long and tedious, with many formalities to be fulfilled. Information technology has, of course, made our lives much easier but it also has a dark side to it.

Beatles, the best

Thank you for the very evocative spread on the Beatles (All My Loving, August 14). The story took me right back to the days of my youth and childhood. Their music will remain evergreen no matter how many new bands spring up and how many new genres of music evolve. Not only was their music great but it also told the story of a landmark era that was rebelling against old rules and norms. Their music was sincere and that it why it appeals to the youth of today too.
