Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 30April 17Tight race in France
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 28 April 17,A dream come true
Isabella Nicola wanted to play violin without having her left arm and her interest was encouraged by her music teacher (‘Undergrads build prosthetic arm for 10-year-old violinist’, Gulf News, April 23). They built her a prosthetic arm that allowed her to play the violin, which is laudable. This could be possible only with a group of five bio engineering students that helped Isabella’s dream to come true. Kudos to music teacher and the teammates.

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?

 Next day as usual Ram reached his office little early because the traffic was less.Today in the Global scenario the traffic has become one of the major issue for all the Countries.Development,people migrating from one place to another above all usage of  more Vehicles are the main attributing reasons for traffic.Luckily there was less traffic Ram reached before time.  He received a call from Atkinson.
Good morning Ram,how are you.

Atkinson.Today  Mr Lizioli is Coming here.I got a call from him yesterday.Since Prasanna has gone to India he will meet us.Just for your information.
Ram.Fine,what time he is  coming.
Atkinson.After noon at 3P.M.
After that Ram checked the mails.Raj has sent many .Particularly he wanted to cover the recent Tamil Nadu by poll election post ponement.
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 .
After given instruction  Ram received a call from Prasanna.
Sir,i reached safely.Mother is better.Kindly take care our client Lizioli who is coming there today.

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.
