Over the past few days, we have received emails, representations and letters objecting to the reference to Swami Vivekananda and the use of his photograph in the article 'Taking the aggression out of masculinity' (January 3, 2013). We have published several of these. We wish to reiterate that the views in the article are those of the author and not of The Hindu. The photograph was used only to illustrate a specific reference made in the article. Any offence caused to readers was inadvertent and is regretted.
