Letter Published in The National UAE on 21Feb 18   India should get tough on fire safety measuresI refer to your article Indian wedding death toll rises to 18(February 18): that a gas cylinder explosion at a hotel in the Indian state of Rajasthan caused 18 deaths is saddening. People who arrived at the wedding, a joyful occasion, walked into a disaster. Gas cylinder explosions are sadly very common because of a lack of adherence to safety standards. The compensation announced by the government, however large it may be, cannot bring back the loved ones of those grieving. This is truly a sad state of affairs.K Ragavan, Bangalore
