• A sentence in the eighth paragraph of an article “Looking beyond the NSG debacle” (Op-Ed, “Reality Check”, August 25, 2008) was “With this degree of policy coherence at the great power level, there was no way a since American effort to deliver a clean and unconditional waiver for India would have run aground.” It should have been “a sincere American effort”.
  • The second paragraph of a report “A manufactured controversy, says Congress” (August 22, 2008) was “Briefing journalists here, Congress spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan said 5,29,697 lakh pilgrims had ‘darshan’ this year.” The word lakh was an error.
  • A layout oversight/technical error, which should have been rectified by those passing the page, resulted in the first two columns of an article, “What future beckons real estate market?” (Property Plus, Chennai edition, August 23, 2008, page 1), getting merged. This made the article unreadable, leading to protests. It will be republished in the Chennai edition of Property Plus on August 30, 2008. The error is regretted.
