Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 20 Feb 17,History of corruption
The recent Indian Supreme Court verdict on the former Tamil Nadu chief minister and her associates made a sudden turn in Indian politics on their disproportionate asset case. M. G. Ramachandran, who fought for the account irregularities on the party Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), where he was a member and came out with All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) is important. His follower, Jayaram Jayalalitha  was bestowed a disproportionate asset case and given a four-year jail term. Even though the former chief minister created some schemes for the poor, she left with a lot of corruption and ill-gotten wealth, which was against the principals of Ramachandran.
Even though Panneerselvam was ruling without corruption and his image is clean, will the members of the legislative assembly (MLA) rethink their decision? This verdict will be an eye opener for other people who want to act like this. I applaud the Supreme Court’s excellent judgement on Sasikala.

Healthy suggestion

I was accompanying a friend who was looking for an apartment. After looking at several rooms, he was not convinced either because of poor construction or over tariff. 

One particular room was good. He also liked it but rejected it on the ground that it was on the third floor, without the elevator facility. 

I reminded him of his doctor’s advice to do regular exercises. 

Being a diabetic, he realised that climbing three floors daily would help him improve his health. He appreciated my idea as a “healthy suggestion.” That his family was angry with my idea is another matter.

Love is bigger than one day

Readers discuss their interpretation of true love for Valentine’s Day Fiendship
Valentine’s Day has become more popular in most of the countries. Most young men and women exchange greetings and love throughout the world and this day has become more significant. In my opinion, true love is friendship and love. It should bring peace and tranquillity among nations.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 13,Feb 17,How far will she go?
This is with reference to the allegations between the Indian state of Tamil Nadu’s chief minister and their party’s General Secretary V. K. Sasikala (‘Uncertainty continues in Tamil Nadu’, Gulf News, February 9). The latter has got the party’s legislators’ support, which resulted in the resignation from the present chief minister. Subsequently, two days later, the chief minister who resigned claimed that under forced circumstances he had to tender his resignation. This is the latest dramatic development from Indian politics. Sasikala was a close associate of the late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jayaram and not holding any ministerial position at that time. Now she is claiming the party cadres and legislators want her to lead the state, which is having mixed reactions from the opposition parties and others since she does not have any experience on governance and since she has not won in the elections from any constituency. Similarly, in the state of Bihar, India, Rabri Devi also has no experience. Will Sasikala’s claim and confidence for the chair become a reality and will the election rules and formalities bypass her? We will have to wait and see.
