This refers to ‘Curtains on Saifai event as stars praise CM, Mulayam’ (IE, January 10). * This refers to Or else,Modi by Shekhar Gupta (IE,November 16). It has rightly been observed that India is a mature democracy and has strong mechanisms and institutions such as the judiciary to ensure that the Constitution is not violated or subverted. The citizens of this country want a change from the Congress party. The writer gives us the confidence that since our democracy cannot be suppressed we can,should we like,give other parties a chance to prove themselves at the Centre. Sanjeev G. Kulkarni. Loni. Safety concerns. * This refers to Audio encounter (IE,November 19). In the name of security,it seems that Narendra Modi was spying on a young girl. It is shocking that the girls phone as well as those of her family members and friends were allegedly tapped. Even if her father had requested that extra measures be taken to keep her safe,does this type of high-handed and illegal snooping on an adult not violate her right to privacy? Not only does this raise uncomfortable questions regarding the safeguards against arbitrary phone tapping,it also makes one wonder whether the state would have extended the same protection to other girls with concerned fathers. Bidyut K. Chatterjee. Faridabad. Play boldly. * After the seven chess games between Viswanathan Anand and Magnus Carlsen,the latter is in the lead. At this point it seems that Carlsen will walk away with the world championship title. People had hoped that Anand would have tried something new in the seventh game,but he didnt. Anand may have lost his self confidence. However,if he wants to remain in the race for the title,he will have to come out of his shell and play without the fear of losing. If he loses,it wont matter what the margin of victory was. He must stop playing a simple, risk-free strategy. A billion plus Indian are rooting for Anand. Vinod Sharma. Moga. Unkept promises. * This refers to Back to Netaji (IE,November 19). Mulayam Singh Yadavs call for a ban on speaking English in Parliament confirms the worst about the SP. The party is clearly still clinging on to its dated positions. If the SP is allowed to stay in power,I shudder to think how far back the clock will get turned for UP. If this statement was intended to lure voters,Netaji has another think coming. Hes living in the past. The SP has already irked many people in UP for not keeping its promises. Netaji is only making things worse.
