Letter Published in KhaleejTimes UAE on 23 June 17  The recent exit of soft and sophisticated Anil Kumble is not a healthy development. According to the media, skipper Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble could not get along. It seems like politics plays a major role in sports, too. We will have to wait and see who the new coach will be.

Letter Published in Gulf NewsUAE on 23June 17,Trophy win, a great achievement for Pakistan
The recent thumping victory for Pakistan against India in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy and the huge difference in runs was a great achievement for the Pakistan team. Despite winning the toss, Indian captain Virat Kohli should have chosen for batting, allowing Pakistan to chase.

Above all, the top batsmen miserably failed and only Hardik Pandya proved his mettle. The Indian team has completely disappointed millions of viewers and this defeat cannot be digested. I do agree that cricket is a game of luck, but no sincere attempt has been made by the Indian team is my opinion. Kudos to Pakistan team for their excellent performance!

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 18 June 17,Using violence for a cause
The recent Indian hill resort Darjeeling Separatists group, the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM), strike turned into violence and many fled (‘Tourists flee as Darjeeling troubles boil over’, Gulf News, June 13). GJM was asking for a separate state for them and the dialogue between them and government has been going on for years and this time they have come with a firm determination and the strike turned violent. The government was forced to deploy soldiers and 12 were injured during the clash was sad. Protests and strikes can be conducted in a peaceful manner and violence is not the answer. I hope the government will consider their request and if it is genuine it can be implemented. Already many states were born from strikes and protests, hence why GJM was fighting for years. Will the government take up their call? We will have to wait and see.

Article Published in Gulf News UAE on 4June 17,

Any sport should be rewarded

‘When I applaud the concept for cricket, I wonder why other games aren’t encouraged the same?’In my country, India, particularly in my city of Bengaluru, basketball is quickly becoming more and more popular among teenage boys and girls. It’s amazing to watch the way they practise and play in tournaments. Games of all sorts, like football, hockey, basketball, table tennis and many others should be encouraged. Already India is supporting more for cricket and the encouragement for the players is fantastic, comparing to the old days. When I applaud the concept for cricket, I wonder why other games aren’t encouraged the same?
Basketball players should be encouraged with certificates, motivation and rewards. Infrastructure, like playground facilities should be improved. Proper seating arrangements and washrooms should be provided. Most of the players’ grandparents come to watch the match and they are finding it difficult to ease themselves because of poor infrastructure. My government should take care of infrastructure facilities for the visitors. Basketball is taking shape. Already US basketball is highly regarded and players get scholarships for higher studies and job opportunities.

My opinion is that any game should be encouraged. In basketball, players should show their skills and movement for scoring. The amount of practice the players spend and the execution of play should be rewarded. Good seating, washrooms and, above all, cleanliness of the ground is important and the government should monitor periodically whether these facilities are maintained.
Since my city is a famous IT hub and many will be watching if they visit the playground, just like the famous M. Chinnaswamy Stadium that attracts many, if the basketball ground or stadium was maintained and kept clean like that of my garden city, it will spread throughout the world. My request is for basketball players to be rewarded and the coaches, also. Will my government take up this call?

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 2 June 17,Improvements needed
In Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s three year tenure, the Indian National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government has done some important things for the development of the country, particularly with regards to demonetisation and infrastructure facilities (‘Naidu keen to continue alliance with BJP’, Gulf News, May 29). These developments are laudable and despite opposition criticisms, the Indian government has looked at the interest of all communities and their welfare. Still, the fact that the NDA government was called a communal party, was sad to read. Congress had ruled for so many years and they did not make so many improvements, yet they claim that they are the old national party. The NDA should take care of important aspects, like inflation of day-to-day consumables, which has not come down, and bank interest rates for senior citizens. Will the NDA address these two important issues?

The brutal attack that killed 22 innocent people and left many others injured was condemned by one and all (‘Troops deploy as Britain goes on top terror alert’, Gulf News, May 25). The attackers have created a sense of panic and fear among people, which is unacceptable. Whoever is responsible for this motive and action must be brought to justice.
The casualty numbers are the highest over the previous attack a decade ago in the UK. It’s time for the entire globe to join together and eradicate this menace. No one anticipated their fate while watching the Ariana Grande concert. I pray for the victims and a speedy recovery for the injured.

It is evident that the hackers were blackmailing for ransom money. Apart from the 74 countries affected, the worst hit was Russia.

Pedestrians at risk
while crossing road
Sir.-In recent  months,the Gubbalala  Gate on  Kanakapura main road has seen big expansion with restaurants, shopping malls,and other out lets.
At present , only one signal at Gubbalala  Main Gate is working,making it difficult for pedestrians to cross.The Authorities should at least paint Zebra crossings for the safety of  pedestrians.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 7 May 17,Curtail insurgents
In recent days, bomb blasts are becoming more visible, with the unmitigated killing of innocent civilians, and this time, police officers were killed, too (‘Roadside bomb kills three near Baghdad’, Gulf News, May 1). Despite the reduction in violence, this is happening mainly due to insurgents. Iraqi forces should implement a new strategy to curtail these insurgents and protect the people. Will the Iraqi forces adopt a new strategy?

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 6 May 17,A new concept?
In a mass marriage ceremony, the Indian state minister of Madhya Pradesh gifted brides with bats to protect themselves from their husbands in case if they are alcoholics (‘Minister gifts bats to brides to beat husbands if they turn alcoholic’, Gulf News, May 1). This may look like a funny incident, but it is to safeguard themselves. If the government can implement a ban on alcohol, which is already the case in a few states, that will be better. However, this gift is a new concept.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 3 May 17  Benefitting the wrong people  The opinion piece on what US President Donald Trump is doing for Americans by Nicholas Kristof was meaningful and thought provoking (‘This isn’t tax policy, it’s a Trump-led heist’, Gulf News, April 28). Kristof has elaborately analysed the way Trump’s administration has failed his voters for the promises made by him and the new tax policy is only the Republican way to cover it up. This tax policy is not clear on how it is going to be implemented. This new policy, if at all implemented, will be taking care of corporations, like the ones owned by Trump. Will this tax policy be welcomed by the American people? We will have to wait and see.From Mr K. Ragavan Bengaluru, India

With tight security, France is conducting the presidential polls (‘French election: Top politicians back Macron’, Gulf News, April 25). Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron have been much talked about among the candidates for the French presidential race. Whoever comes to power, the people are looking for their safety without terrorism and reforms, which has not been seen for decades. France faced tough times through terrorism in the past year and this needs to be remembered. Will the election outcome favour Le Pen? We will have to wait and see.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 20 April 17,Lessons to be learnt
The recent outcome of the Indian state of New Delhi’s by-poll results was favourable for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and next for Congress (‘Assembly by-polls: Three seats to Congress, five to BJP’, Gulf News, April 14). However, their defeat in Karnataka, India was not a good indication for the general election next year. They should have a good strategy and win the confidence of the people. Regarding Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) defeat, this is due to its leader Arvind Kejriwal’s recent arrogant behaviour with the election results, blaming the election machine. Delhi’s people showed their power. It’s a good lesson for AAP.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 16April 17,Inclusive political solution
The editorial on recent air strikes by US on Syria was thought-provoking and meaningful (“Trump has to support a political process in Syria”, Gulf News, April 9). Syrian people are growing weary of the civil war and the deadly attacks from various insurgents. Since the US has now intervened, they should enact a safe administration for the welfare of the Syrian people. However, it should not be a futile attempt, as in the case of US intervention in Iraq in 2003.
At this crucial hour, the innocent civilians – particularly seniors, women and children – need safety and peace. Will the US’ strategy work?

Ram gone through the details of the report sent by Raj  particularly the  documents seized by the Income tax department raided in the ruling party Minister's place.
After seeing  the elaborated report Ram felt very sad  why Ministers are inducing Voters by giving money for casting their Votes.When any one offers the human tendency is to accept.Only the person giving should be taken  to task was his opinion.
He called the News Editor told her how to cover the latest tamilnadu news  in the evening .
Most of his coverage liked by all because all are neutal .

Readers share whether they would accept and allow world governments to track encrypted messaging apps like WhatsApp.
Published: 15:37 April 8, 2017Gulf News
Consider the state of the world
Normally, I would not want others accessing encrypted messages, because personal communication should not be watched. But, seeing the state of the world, with global terror incidents, and the recent attacks in the UK and Russia, threats to security must be considered. But the messages should be monitored and should not be leaked. The safety of countries is important.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 10 April 17,Stop the violence
The St. Petersburg metro bombing was greatly saddening (“St Petersburg blast suspect named”, Gulf News, April 5). After the recent UK Parliament attack, this incident was really shocking. The number of people killed rose to 14 and 50 civilians were treated for varying degrees of injury. However, the motive behind this attack is yet to be known. Now, apart from airports and public places, railway stations are being targeted by terrorists.
Russia is fighting against terrorism, along with the international community, and this unacceptable attack is a challenging issue for the Russian Federation. In recent reports, terrorists have been mainly targeting Europe. Hence, the international community should not delay in eradicating these threats and ending acts of violence. I pray for the victims and their grieving family members.

 Letter Published in GulfNews UAE on 30March 17,Arrogance on display
The behaviour displayed by Gaikwad against an Air India senior staff member should be strictly condemned. He assaulted the staff member with his sandal, which is completely unacceptable in a civil and democratic society. People are electing Members of Parliament to serve a primarily symbolic role, in order to enact good governance and serve the general interests of the public with respect towards all citizens, particularly seniors. Because Gaikwad was not given an executive seat, he demonstrated bad behaviour. With an open ticket for business class, he travelled on an all-economy flight without any executive seat. His arrogant behaviour and temper should not be tolerated by his political party.
The Parliament should also ban him from political candidacy so that any misdemeanour from public officials would be highlighted in the future. MPs should not think that they are superior to others. They are expected to serve by example to their people. The Indian government should implement some rules regarding this. The Parliament is a political system with the role of executing law and order for the development of the country. The Indian government should take some measures in disciplining arrogant government politicians, as they should be exemplary role models in society.

What lies ahead for India

Readers write to Gulf News about issues affecting them and their community
Gulf News
What lies ahead for India
This was a good read (“Did Yogi arm-twist Shah, Modi into decision?”, Gulf News, March 19). The announcement of Yogi Adityanath from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as the new Chief Minister of the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP), India, has brought mixed reactions from the opposition on communal card. This appointment was the latest dramatic development in UP politics.
Proving his popularity and leadership to the people of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the recent election victory, his calculated appointment may bring a new turn in UP politics. Perhaps, Modi wanted to spread his Chief Ministers in all sections of the society and demonstrate to the people that his party is purely secular and not communal. This is a sudden change in UP politics. Will his new concept work? Let’s wait and see. In the end, everyone deserves a calm and peaceful life.
