Letter Published in GulfNews UAE On 18Jan 17 Many promises recently
Energy conversion is needed now for betterment of the environment and for peaceful living. Already in the Paris Climate Change Summit, many countries have agreed to cooperate to create a better environment. Some oil companies and corporate companies have come forward for the conversion of their products for the environment. Many countries have positive views on this. We will have to wait and see the real happenings.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 22 Jan 17,Symbols matter
After the recent fight between the father and son of the Samajwadi party in the Indian northern state of Uttar Pradesh, the present Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav retains his symbol cycle for the forthcoming election from the Elections Commission (EC) is the latest dramatic development from Indian politics (‘Akhilesh rides away with Samajwadi Party on ‘bicycle’, Gulf News, January 17). His father and founder of the Samajwadi party, Mulayam Singh Yadav, is going to fight for the symbol. In India, apart from dynasty politics, symbols also play an important role to retaining power.
Politics is only opportunism to retain power without the motive of serving people. We will have to wait and see if the former chief minister will succeed in his motto of bringing back his symbol.

Article Published in The Gulf Today UAE on 21Jan 17, (My Article 501)

Until stocks last

For the past few days, my city, Bengaluru, has remained cool and windy. A friend suggested that some new, colourful blankets had arrived in one of the leading stores. Adding to the attraction was a “tempting promotion offer” till January. He had bought one and was satisfied.

Another friend who was listening to our conversation rushed to the shop. He was impressed too and bought the blanket, but there was no discount. When the buyer argued about sale, the shopkeeper pointed his finger at a board, which read: “Sale, until stocks last.” 

The shopkeeper said those available were new stocks. My friend had to buy grudgingly as he had gone all the way.

Letter Published in GulfNews UAE on 21Jan 17,The people’s choice
It was good to read that the former Indian cricketer and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) politician joined Congress for his second innings in his political career (‘Navjot Sidhu finally joins Congress’, Gulf News, January 16). It’s the latest development in Indian politics. Will his entry yield any favourable result in the upcoming Punjab election to Congress? We will have to wait and see.
In politics anything may happen at any time, but accepting the candidate is in the hands of the people. Ultimately, people have to decide.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE On 17Jan ,17,After all this time!
Despite so many precautions and US interventions, the Taliban militants in Afghanistan still seem to have the upper hand in much of the country (‘Twin attacks near Afghan parliament’, Gulf News, January 11). They are killing innocent people, elders and children, and it’s unacceptable in any good and civil society. Will the new US administration take care of the situation on the ground and take care of the Afghan people? Ever since the US involvement in Afghanistan, there has been no fruitful solution. The US has to change its strategy as they are from the beginning in the country. I pray for the victims and a speedy recovery for the injured.
