Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 25 Aug 16, A unique creature
Machli was liked by photographers and thousands of tourists. She died due to old age, as she stopped eating. The park she was in is known for its tiger population and half of the world’s tigers living there. The departure of Machli is a great loss to tourists who enjoyed her beautiful personality.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 22 Aug 16,Long way to go for Modi
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Independence Day speech mentioned how many villages have benefited from electricity, and also talked about the 20 million toilets built in his two years in power (‘20 million toilets built in two years: Indian PM’, Gulf News, August 16). However, this development of sanitation may not be adequate for the entire population of India. Still, sanitary issues are a big concern and its improvement should be sped up to avoid diseases. In the seven-decade history since India’s independence, the country has seen rapid development in the past two years, as per Modi’s strategy. Electricity is still a question for many villages. Electricity, toilets and inflation should be taken care of, without further delay, for better living conditions. With this development, will the Indian Prime Minister prove his determination for the targets set for these areas? We will have to wait and see.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 21 Aug 16,Facebook debate: Mothers at work
For child development, does motherhood require women to stay home?It’s getting better
Today women are dominating in all walks of life, showing their talents and delivery. Most of the corporate sector also prefer equality in top positions. Regarding the child’s development, it certainly requires a mother’s attention and they have to stay with a new baby for a few months. Already, in many places, women are given adequate maternity leave, and now they are thinking of giving even more days. The UAE is already taking care of women and now the concept for providing additional facilities of car parking and nursing rooms are in line with that goal.

Article Published in The Gulf Today UAE on 20Aug 16, (My Article 479).

Meeting point

During a recent visit to Chennai, I happened to meet a prominent and elderly writer, Vedha Gopalan, at a friend’s place. I was surprised at her simplicity and unassuming nature, though she’s well known among the local community. 

We discussed various writers and their creative work. Incidentally, her husband was also a famous writer and I have read his stories in my younger days.

Talking about meeting people, I realise that destiny does play a great part. The other day, I was supposed to meet a close friend at a mall in Bengaluru, but had to cancel the plan at the last minute. 

It is at such times that the adage, “Man proposes, God disposes,” sounds absolutely true.
