Decisive action needed on Syria          Letter Published in The National Uae on 30 Dec 12
Syria: no plan, no timetable, no peace (December 28) reflects a very sad state of affairs.
The Syrian civil war is continuing despite global concern and an appeal from the UN Security Council.
Opposition parties and the Syrian people clearly want to be rid of Bashar Al Assad, yet the situation is still dragging on.
The question is: who will make the difficult but essential move that will lead to a new transitional government?

Article 282.


Number game       Article Published in The Gulf today UAE on dec 29,12(282).

A friend arranged a short-trip picnic for our group. On the specified date, we assembled at the prescribed place. My friend started counting the numbers and felt one person was missing. He was murmuring repeatedly that it was one less in the group.

When I asked him whether he included himself in the count, he blushed and accepted the mistake. The picnic turned out to be enjoyable and we merrily pulled his leg most of the time over the incident.

Article 281.


Setting goals                   Article Published in The Gulf Today Uae on 22DEc 12.(Article 281).

I find it funny that in the earlier days parents decided the ambition of children. If they dreamt that their sons or daughters would become doctors or engineers they would accordingly force them to follow that path. The modern generation is more mature. 

It is children who decide their future. A friend called me up to say that his son had been selected for the IIT entrance examination. I was happy because both he and his son had wished for the IIT course.

In spite of many earlier incidents and resulting assurances made by the Delhi chief minister, the menace of rape continues (

Mass killer forced his way in to school was painful to read (December 16). These crimes are too common in the US. The government should take stern action to avoid this type of incident in the future.

Family bonds           Article Published in The Gulf Today,Uae on 15Dec 12 (Article 280).

People keep saying that the fast, modern lifestyle is destroying family bonds. I do not agree. I received a call early in the morning from my grandson. I thought he was looking for company for basketball practice.

I asked him what time I had to reach his place. “You need not come. I rang up to wish you a happy birthday,” he replied. I was impressed. Family bonds can remain strong irrespective of social speed.

The opposition parties have welcomed the Indian government's decision to appoint a retired judge to head an inquiry into recent allegations of Walmart influencing officials so they could enter the Indian market.
Despite passing the Foreign Direct Investments Bill in both houses of parliament, the United Progressive Alliance government is now facing these allegations.
What will the party do to clear this issue?

I enjoyed reading 7 emirates celebrate strength as a nation (November 30).
In spite of the limited water resources and harsh climate, what was once desert has developed in to a beautiful country with modern infrastructure.
This should be applauded, as should the commitment of the Rulers of the country.
I hope everyone in the UAE had a very happy, safe and healthy National Day.
