>>The front-page graphic that appeared alongside “BJP-TDP talks inconclusive” (March 24, 2014, some editions) got the Goa Chief Minister’s name wrong. It is Manohar Parrikar, not Mohan Parrikar.

>>“Yashwant Sinha has quietly opted out, content with ticket for his son Jayant from Hazirbagh in Bihar.” So said a sentence in “In BJP, change is order of the day” (March 23, 2014). Hazirbagh is in Jharkhand.

>>The opening sentence of the Comment page article, “The second homecoming” (March 22, 2014), read: “When Rajiv Gandhi’s poster boy Ghulam Nabi Azad …” It is Sanjay Gandhi, not Rajiv Gandhi.

>>This column has lost count on the number of times it has issued a correction in regard to official language versus national language: In “Where Bollywood stars don’t shine” (March 22, 2014) a sentence read: “As a counter move, the Centre opened a music channel in All India Radio, Imphal, so that youngsters remained familiar with the national language.”(The reference was to Hindi.) Vexed readers point out that Hindi is an official language - not national language. They are right.

It is the policy of The Hindu to correct significant errors as soon as possible.
