Letter Published in The National UAE on 20 Sep 18,Warm wishes to both the Indian and Pakistani cricket teams

I refer to your article The UAE’s ‘home’ game: India and Pakistan cricket fans get ready for latest chapter in fierce sporting rivalry (September 19). The landmark Asian Cup match between India and Pakistan in Dubai was very good news for the residents of the UAE. ­Millions of people – Indians, Pakistanis and other nationalities – watched on television and in the stadium. More than two decades ago, India and ­Pakistan played in Sharjah Cricket Stadium and later stopped for security reasons. The return of this meeting of teams has been rightly heralded.

I watched many matches in Sharjah Stadium when I was living in the UAE and enjoyed the immense spirit of the UAE’s cricket fans, who deserve to be entertained by both national teams. ­Ultimately, feats of sporting prowess should be admired, whatever the result. Given the weighty expectations on both sides, I wished both of them good luck.

Letter Published in KhaleejTimes UAE on 17Sep 18 Victory for Isro scientist  The recent verdict of India’s Supreme Court on the former Isro rocket scientist Nambi Narayanan after 24 years was great, and in fact a dramatic development. He was charged with spying, but the court has given him a clean chit. Narayanan waited for more than two decades for this. No amount of compensation can bring back the time lost. The real culprit should get his comeuppance in the end, which is what matters. Efforts should continue to find who was really responsible.-K.Ragavan, Bengaluru, India

Letter Published in The National UAEon 17Sep 18 A three-day weekend could benefit bosses and workers

I write in reference to your article A three-day weekend could boost productivity all round (September 14): The National’s editorial article on the virtues of a four-day week was an interesting read and offered a very logical argument. In the past, people advocated for a one-day weekend and then that was changed to two days. Now research reveals that a three-day weekend would boost productivity and morale in the workplace.

Already the Bosch engineering firm in the UAE has said it would consider introducing this concept. But the question remains: will they increase working hours on the four days that their employees actually do work?

A three-day weekend would certainly allow employees to recharge fully before returning to work. And once the mind is stress-free, productivity would certainly increase, with positive consequences for companies. It remains to be seen whether this will be accepted globally.
