TV saved Article Published in The Gulf Today,on 31.Dec11.(232rd Article.)

I was taking rest on the first floor when I heard a sound downstairs. I rushed to see some children exiting from the main gate.

When asked, they apologised saying that they were playing cricket and the ball had hit the window. Just near the window is a brand new TV I had bought recently in the UAE.

I love the UAE and this TV is hence precious. I thanked God that it was saved. I love children, but wish they would play in open grounds and not near residences.

Comment.

Web Site Comment in The Hindu,India Your article,Two states and a water issue,was a good to read.This issue can be amicably settled by both states Chief Ministers.Because ,of this issue both the states People are struggling,to move.Tradeing was also disturbed.Looting the Property of Individuals,of both states are unacceptable.Regionalism plays vital,rather than Patriotism was sad and painful.Both the state people should be protected and travel should not be disturbed.

Web Site Comment in The New Indian Express,India You are article,Lok pal bill,a big Loss for Congress,was a interesting to read.In the Second term UPA has lost it's image and confidence from the people is the real fact.Congress Party was there for many decades and Good Leaders was there ,with out Much scams and corruption.Today majority of the Politicians are corrupt and not committed to his constituency ,was the Cruel fact.How much money one can ,amaze and enjoy is the question.As long as Power plays a vital roll,you can never expect delivery. Ihave been seeing our politics for nearly Five decades,only Promises are visible.In this Power political Game,the worst sufferer is the Commonman.Very sad. By K.Ragavan.

letter

Letter Published in The National,Uae on 26.Dec11. The article Police warn of hire cars with no insurance (December 25) was both interesting and worrying. Driving a car without insurance is a criminal offence and people who are driving must make sure that they have coverage.

Most of the car rental companies should be also be made to follow proper procedures. They should check the validity period of the insurance periodically to avoid this type of situation. If they don’t, the authorities concerned should also monitor car rental companies more strictly to ensure they apply the right insurance measures, or be punished.

Water for lunch Article Published in The Gulf Today,UAE on 24,Dec 11,(231th Article)

During my morning walk in Chennai, I saw a local train pass by and a childhood incident flashed back in my memory. When I was a student, I used to travel by the suburban train to school. Once, my father had given me a few coins as pocket money.

I kept the coins in my shirt pocket and held them carefully. However, while alighting, someone pushed me and the coins fell. I had not carried my lunch box to school that day hoping to eat outside.

Without the coins, all I could do was take four cups of water from the school tap instead of lunch.

Lesson learnt Article Published in The Gulf Today UAE,on 17,Dec11.(230th Article).

A friend has this habit of talking for hours over the phone. I recently found him a changed man. When prodded, he explained: “My relatives were trying to reach me, but my phone was continuously engaged. It was an emergency as my cousin was admitted to hospital.

The incident left me embarrassed and shocked.”

I hope people who keep chatting unnecessarily take a cue from this.

Star till the end Article Published in The Gulf Today Uae on 10,Dec11.(229th article.)

The news of evergreen Bollywood actor Dev Anand’s death came as a big shock to me. I always considered him a great inspiration. Age never deterred this man. Work and determination were his philosophy. When I was a student, many of my friends copied his hairstyle and trendy style of walking. Dev Anand will always be etched in my memory.

I got into a wrong bus in Chennai recently and the conductor asked me to get off at the next stop. I got down and waited for the bus on my route. Suddenly, a man on a two-wheeler halted near me and asked where I should be dropped.

I had not seen him before and he understood my hesitation. “I have been seeing you during the morning walk in our locality. I stay in the same area,” he said. His good nature touched my heart.
