Court on probe

In view of the murderous attack on the hapless farmers and the violence that erupted subsequently at Lakhmipur-Kheri, it is paramount on the part of the investigating agencies to act with conscience and see that the inhuman murderers are given exemplary punishment without falling victim to the dictates of the powers that be.

This becomes very important in view of the clout and influence the main accused wields.

Tharcius S. Fernando,


Cities and flooding

Every Indian city with a dense population faces the risk of getting inundated with rainwater. This is principally due to poor stormwater drainage which gets clogged because there is no periodical cleaning. If open drainage is no longer permissible, the government of the day must ensure that no waste gets accumulated. Even the underground sewerage meant for households poses problems during ‘non-monsoon’ months. In fact, there is no inspection of the drainage system by the authorities concerned. If one heavy shower overnight followed by incessant heavy drizzle can throw life out of gear, we need the expertise of a foreign expert to set things right!

V. Lakshmanan,


Tirupur, Tamil Nadu
