Clean chit Article Published in The Gulf Today,UAE on 28,April 12.(248Th Article)

I was watching Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s interview on a TV channel. His face was full of joy as he welcomed the revelations made by Swedish investigators in the Bofors case. He said he had “lived with humiliation and loss of reputation” all these years. As the actor put it himself, sadly, it took 25 years for the truth to emerge.

Letter Published in The National ,UAE On 25,April 12 Your article about divorce cases in the UAE, especially among Emiratis, offered much food for thought (Changing society pays price in divorce, April 24).

There are many attributing factors to the phenomenon of high divorce rates, which include issues such as ego problems, professional differences and above all, a lack of understanding between young, newly married couples.

This can be eradicated to a certain extent with good dialogue and patience.

That this is not happening, however, is not a healthy sign.

The record of crimes from the National Crime Records Bureau was shocking(Femme Fatal,TNSE,Apr 8.). This is mainly due to harrasment faced bywomen on issues like dowry and domestic violence.Better employment of some women is also a factor.The government should keep a close watch on this issue.

I was casually chatting with a friend at my home in Chennai when I heard a commotion outside. There was panic all around. It was then that I switched on the TV and heard about the tsunami threat to several countries. Memories of the devastation caused by the earlier tsunami flashed in my mind. Mercifully, the prescribed alert time crossed and people were spared nature’s fury.

Your article,India's Tax Plan Troubles Foreign Investors , was good and true also. The recent Finance ministry's budget was not encouraging much relief for the Commonman,and for the senior citizen no increase in the previous limit. The proposed tax for the investment from the foreign Nationals was also not attractive.There should be a flexible tax benefit for the overseas investors.

The other day I was standing at the rail way reservation counter to reserve my wife’s ticket. Suddenly, someone was calling my name. I saw my friend with a reservation form standing behind me.

He was asking me to accompany him for a week to a famous hill station Kodaikanal, where he was planning to spend the summer. I thanked him for the invitation and politely declined. “You have selected a lovely hill resort,” I told him.

“I am going to see it for the first time,” he replied. “Have you visited the place?,” he asked me. When I replied 43 times, he was stunned and taken aback. I used to go there every month for an official trip, I explained.

Web site question and answer in The New Indian Express,India
Q: I have been following Indian politics for more than five decades. In my opinion, there are no committed leaders who can deliver on the common man's interest. What is your view?
A: Of course, we have plenty of committed leaders. But they are more interested in making themselves mighty and richer at the cost of those who have voted them in power. Now leaders run political parties like industrialists own business empires. K Ragavan

Remove Garbage Dump Near School Letter Published in The New Indian Express,India on 2.April 12
Next to the Government High school on Chitlapakam main road ,an open yard for dumping waste materials and other unwanted items is being used by the public for many years. Later, these waste materials are burnt and the smoke which emanates is a huge inconvenience not only for the people who pass by but also for the students.The shocking part is that there is a primary health branch as well as a government nutrition centre next to the yard.I request the authorities concerned toremove the yard to keep the place clean and healthy.
